The StG 44 (German: Sturmgewehr 44; English: Assault Rifle model 1944) was a German automatic rifle designed in 1942. It is considered to be the first "true" assault rifle, as it used the 7.92x33mm Kurz ("short") intermediate cartridge. It had a rate of fire of 500-600 rounds per minute and an effective range of 300 meters.
The StG 44 (misspelled as the Sg44 in the game files) is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1942, issued to the Wehrmacht, Afrika Korps and Imperial Japanese Navy (prior to its replacement by the Type 99 in the v1.45 patch) Assault kit. It is similar to its American counterpart, the M1918 BAR, in terms of power. It has slightly more spread with its shots (hence reduced accuracy) and a 30 round magazine, as opposed to the 20 round magazine found on the BAR.

— In-game Description
The StG 44 is a weapon featured in Battlefield V. It first appeared in the Battlefield 5 Official Reveal Trailer, and was later shown in Pre-Alpha footage to be an Assault class weapon. The weapon's primary asset is its select-fire capability and large magazine capacity that allows it to function best at close to medium range. Accuracy and control is on the lower side for Assault-class weapons as is damage, with a minimum of four bullets to the body kill. The player starts with only one magazine spare. Its upgrade paths focus on either improving its accuracy and reducing recoil, or optimizing the rifle for quick, on-the-move shooting.
