Tachanka’s RP-46 Degtyaryov turret has been replaced with the Shumikha Laucher.

This launcher shoots grenades that generate areas of fire 1 second after the first bounce.

The Shumikha Launcher is equipped with a fixed 5-grenade magazine. Tachanka has a total of 10 grenades available. Grenades are inserted one by one.


The DP27 LMG is now available as a primary weapon option for Tachanka and will be replacing the SASG-12.

This weapon allows players to open rotations on soft walls and destroy hatches.
