History

The Degtyarev machine gun is a pan-fed light machine gun designed under the leadership of Vasily Degtyarev, and is chambered for the 7.62x54R round. It served as the standard Soviet light machine gun, and saw variants such as the DT which was used in tanks.

Its official Soviet designation is 'DP-27', though in the west it is known as the 'DP-28' despite no Soviet sources citing such a designation. However, the weapon underwent a year of testing from 1927, when it was approved for manufacture, to 1928, when it went into service.

Gameplay

The DP-28 is a Russian pan-fed light machine gun, chambered for the 7.62x54 Russian caliber. The DP-28 is a very strong defensive weapon, combining high rate of fire with good damage, and can mow down large squads of enemies in seconds. Its long length, low hipfire accuracy, and inability to fire while jogging makes the DP-28 an awkward choice in close quarter combat. Burst fire is advised at longer ranges. It is slightly more accurate than other machine guns.

Tips

  • You can walk or crouch to hipfire while moving. Very useful when approaching corners or inside buildings.
  • Your accuracy increases substantially if you crouch or go prone.
  • Always fire from cover, and be mindful of enemy positions. Your gunfire and tracers make you a prime target for snipers.
  • Coordinate with teammates! This machine gun shines on the battlefield when supported by friendly units.
  • This weapon functions better in defensive roles or as fire support for offensive units.
  • Use suppression, or covering fire. Spraying at enemies in defensive positions will force them into hiding, allowing your allies to move up.
  • It is advisable to carry anti-personnel mines or frag grenades to help defend your position.
  • Crouch or prone in bushes and shoot at the enemies, they might not see you.
