Hello again awesome players!

What a fantastic week we have had, seeing the Wikinger community come together in ways we would never have imagined!

Community Updates

Player Guides

The whole Wikinger Team is working hard with real life, daily work, family … It was our intention to set up tutorials on how to use the different doctrines, but we haven’t had the time to do so. Without being asked for two of our regular players, Nyvre and Death_Kitty, took the task upon themselves and have made some great doctrine overviews,  strategies, do’s and don’ts.

If you’d like to read or contribute your own faction or doctrine guide please do so here. A very big THANK YOU from the Wikinger Team!

Sniper Overhaul – 3.1.5 patch onwards

Sniper Overhaul – 3.1.5 patch onwards

Snipers in the vanilla are quite bland and simply run around firing on the move like some kind of Rambo. We want snipers to play their more historical role of stealthy long-range killers who survive through field-craft and camouflage but are very vulnerable if caught in the open.

Historical Optics – Each faction will only have access to optics that were used historically in WW2 with the most common being around 3.5-4x magnification. Magnification is what decides how far a sniper can see but is not the only factor in a scope. The other important factor is Field of View which is how wide the scope picture is when aiming. As magnification increases your Field of view will become more and more narrow. Some nations will have multiple optics choices so the player will have to decide what they prefer, longer range with a narrow view and the risk of being flanked or shorter range with a wider field of view.
