How is the harder difficulty made harder?
The hardest difficulty setting will strip away all the support players receive on the easier settings and provides a fully realistic simulation, meaning you will have to judge everything from wind adjustments to bullet drop
What does the ballistics system include?
Gravity, bullet drop and cross winds need to be taken into consideration - so you'll need to aim above and to the side of your target to compensate.
How many bullet cam sequences are there?
The clips are not pre-rendered, so we don’t know! We have counted 125... but expect more than 500
Is this game historically accurate?
The story is inspired by true events. It focuses on real life scenarios. The action takes place at the end of WWII within the brain race to steal Nazi V2 tech.

Yes - more information will be coming on this later
