Nagant M1895 Revolver
Today we are going to anounce one small, but important change in the game. In the future update, a new basic weapon will be introduced to the players – Nagant M1895 Revolver.
It's a seven-shot, gas-seal revolver with the mechanism of power supply cartridges which is made in the form of a rotating drum. We are sure that many of you, stalkers, are familiar with this type of weapon and have an idea of its characteristics.
Nagant will replace the already used in the game Makarov Pistol (PM) and will become the starting weapon for Stalker Online players. The Naganе will be issued at the initial stage of the game, according to the initial quests instead of the PM. Replacement will occur for all players.
The main reason for replacing the PM with Nagant was that the PM was originally forced to have the worst performance in the game, which is not true. This applies to its accuracy and other performance indicators. That's why we decided to improve its characteristics, and to replace it with a Nagant M1895 Revolver.
Thanks to this replacement, the sequence of development of the class "Pistol" will become more logical and convenient. Players will have equal chances in progress and more choices in this class. If the player does not like Nagant, then he can change it to TT, PM, Desert Eagle or to another class of weapons in principle.
The PM will become a pistol of a higher class (accuracy characteristics have been improved, etc.) and in turn will replace the Colt M1911 pistol. M1911 for some time will be withdrawn from the sale and will be unavailable for the players.
With Nagant in the game will be introduced a new patron – 7,62x38R, which will replace the available in patron 9x18 for PM. The patron for Nagant at a price will correspond to the patron of the PM. The availability of the PM and its patrons will not change, it will be in free sale from the traders, it can be found in the caches. At the same time, the price of PM patrons will be increased.
This replacement principle will also apply to repair parts (recipes and spare parts) for Nagant, PM and Colt M1911 pistols, i.e. recipes and details from the Colt M1911 pistol will become details of the PM pistol, and the details and drawings of the former PM will be removed.
Old recipes from the Makarov Pistol will be withdrawn from the game, and the players will be able to sell the details to the buyers. Nagant, in turn, will not have recovery drawings and spare parts kits. It will not be possible to restore it – it is only possible to repair it.
