Dev build MXM rechambered for 6.5 mm but still using 7.62 mm suppressor
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Using dev build 0.53.103608, I see that the MXM is now described as a "MXM 6.5 mm" in caliber 6.5 x 39 mm, and that the tooltip descriptions the "6.5mm 30Rnd STANAG Mag" and the "6.5mm 100Rnd Tracer (Red) Belt Case" magazines both list the MXM as among their compatible weapons. However the weapon is not compatible with the Sound Suppressor (6.5 mm NATO) but rather still compatible only with the Sound Suppressor (7.62 mm) despite now only being only compatible with and loading the 6.5 x 39 mm STANAG caseless magazines used in all of the MX series rifles.

EDIT: The issue persists as of dev build 0.55.103960 and stable build 0.54.103957. {F18634} {F18635}

One may also place a BLUFOR Support box before clicking Preview, and upon using it may be found that the Sound Suppressor (6.5 mm) is not compatible with the MXM.

This is supposedly fixed in the latest dev build. Can anyone confirm?

Confirming that MXM now uses 6.5 mm suppressor instead of the 7.62 mm.

As for the magazines, the 100 round mag still lists MXM as a compatible weapon but it can't be loaded onto MXM.

We might need a different ticket for the ammunition.

Mass close.
