Gameplay

A small direct upgrade from the Degtyarev DP-28 , the Degtyarev DT-29 has an extra 50 Rate of Fire, with 16 more bullets, but still having the same reload time to the Tier 1 LMG. As such it should be think of as a slightly better Degtyarev DP-28 but with somewhat terrible sights on certain situations.

Similar to other Drum Magazine Weapons, like the Degtyarev DP-28 and Maschinengewehr 34. The weapon could be used as a Spray and Pray (Or Hope) that you hit something if you can't see the enemy but the enemy can see you. And with it able to clear rooms similar to the Maxim-Tokarev MT, M1919A6 MG, and Maschinengewehr 42. It's an good weapon to clear rooms, similar to the Assault Rifles or Sub-Machine Guns but with a bonus of costing less Maintenance per Battle.

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Rate Of Fire: Decent 600 RPM (RoF) without any modifications
  • Magazine Size: With 63 Rounds within the Drum Magazine, slightly more than the Degtyarev DP-28 or the Maschinengewehr 34.

Between[edit | edit source]

  • Reload Speed: While not the best Reload Time of 5.70 Seconds, it isn't the worst compared to the Tier 3 Light Machine Guns.
  • Single Fire: Like most of the other Light Machine Guns, the Degtyarev DP-DTM (DT-29) is unable to switch to Single Fire Mode, but you can still tap fire the gun.

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Equipment Points: With it only having 7 Equipment Points (8 Equipment Points if taking a Extra Pouch), there's limited space in which you either can go for just the Degtyarev DP-DTM (DT-29) and a Medic Pouch, or a Pistol with a First Aid Kit.
