Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
Happy New Year everyone, we hope you all have had a good start to 2023. To get the year going we will start with a weapon that even internally was a bit of a surprise with its sudden appearance. That would be the Beretta Model 38/42.
While the Beretta Model 38 was a very well made and regarded weapon, it shared the same problem as all the pre war submachineguns: cost. The Model 38/42 did away with a number of features, most prominently the barrel shroud and the forward part of the stock. The barrel was heavily fluted to save weight but eventually even this would be dispensed with. Tangent rear sights were swapped for two position flip ups and the magazine well cover was removed.
It would however be the Germans who would get the most use out of the simplified Berettas, continuing their production after the surrender of Italy and even moving to replace MP40 production later in the war. It is in this guise that you will find this weapon used in FH2, replacing the Model 38 on (most) German maps. Like our revised Model 38, it was made by Ashton and RedRogueVIII.
That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our Discord, our public forums, our Twitter, our subreddit, and/or Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
