Equipped with your arsenal of weaponry, make haste and overtake your enemies; watch over your brothers and god speed. As a soldier in The Somme you are challenged to overtake your enemy's forces. Team work dependency is key without it you will fall to feet of your foes. Listen out for orders from your commanding officer. Which role are you? You decide! From the Medic class and being able to help wounded allies, to being an Officer, taking command to spot targets and mark them on your map to create devastation to your enemies forces with Artillery barrage.

I personally own and have fired a shotgun, and it's only a 20 guage. It's still got more recoil than that. XD Maybe it's because I'm 16, but meh. :P

Oh, and I'm liking the slightly altered bolt animation for the Lee Enfield in that last bit! :D

Recoil in video games mostly comes down cosmetics on the screen. Shake/Jilting. We don't put any of that in our videos because we want you to see the actual animation and don't put yourself down! :P

The Americans used the Trench gun in WW1, not sure about anybody else, but I remember reading about the Germans bitching about how uncivilized the shotgun was in the trenches.

Edit: Also, will I be able to bump fire the shotty? The 1897 didn't have an inhibitor on the trigger, so it was possible to just hold down the trigger and work the pump for an increased rate of fire.
