    • For those who are curious, this is all true but they popped their heads up because that “ping” usually meant the US soldier needed to reload, hence the Japs thought it was safe to emerge for a second.

    • It was actually because they thought they were reloading

    • A ww2 veteran disproved this. The video is on YouTube
      10 1
    • It’s true except the last part, the enemy would rise up to take a shot thinking the American soldier was reloading

    • This is actual bs. You should try shooting these guns and ask your self how good can you hear after not having ear protection? How far do you really think you can hear that ping?

    • American troops fighting Japan had codewords they'd yell out if they think a friendly is up ahead but they aren't sure. Ex: Lollapalooza. An American could say it fine, but the Japs would try and trick them to yell it back but would get shot when they said "rorraparooza". We gave L's with L's

    • That's actually not true. The "ping" is not as loud as you think it is. With other rifles, grenades, shouting, bombs, and vehicles going off around you, you'll barely hear it, if at all, especially if it hits dirt. I have one and can confirm, it is not that loud when at a range with other guns.

    • For those that are curious it was actually so the japs thought they were reloading
      7 1
    • Actually the Japanese learned the ping was the sound of reloading and would believe that the soldiers were reloading their guns when in fact they were going into an ambush as they were brutally sprayed down since they were baited like retards
      7 4
    • This is actually about 90% true. The Japanese would emerge thinking that the Americans were reloading their rifles
      7 1
    • I thought it was to make them think your out of ammo but
      6 1
    • They actually did do that and it worked, but it was because the Japanese thought someone was going to reload so they would pop out to shoot the reloading person but they would be SO WRONG! Bang

    • What ? No. The Japanese learned the pinging noise was the Americans spending the last round in the rifle. That's when they learned to pop up and return fire. The Americans learned to take the metal from previous reloads and throw them against something like a rock or some metal to make the noise

    • You mean marines right?
      5
    • This is fake af
      5
    • Counter fact: You can't do this because its pretty damn hard to hear a soft ping in the middle of a fucking fire fight
      5 2
    • War Fact: This is probably untrue before Japanese don't have names like that. The Chinese do.
      5 3
    • It’s all true lol except for the name part

    • The m1 Garand one of the only reasons anybody should ever have the word clip coming out of their mouth
      6 3
    • Fun fact, this myth has been debunked, you couldn’t hear the ping for shit in a firefight

    • Ping is a Chinese name
      Parsian 18d
      5 3
    • Fun fact: no Japanese name sounds like ping. In fact ping isn't even a native sound of japanese.
      6
    • This is partly true but instead of them thinking their name is called. They think the american ran out of ammo.
      5 5
    • Another war fact: WWll soldiers died for the freedom of this country and they are all turning in their graves knowing what we have become
      8
    • Attention autists in the comments: it's a fucking joke. Like throwing silverware down the stairs to make a Chinese baby.

    • Seeing as you had me in the first half.... my grandfather was a bomber in the army air corps in WWII and when he was on the ground, he’d keep the empty casings to his garand and he’d throw them out on the ground when he was suspicious of someone being around the corner. Works like a charm
      5
    • False, you think your going to hear a small ping with machine gun fire and artillery going off from 20-30 feet away
      ElDusky 18d

    • For people who think he serious, it was because they thought Americans were reloading.
      5
    • Fun fact: The enemies had learned that the sound an M1 Garand makes while reloading is just s really loud ping and would wait to hear it then charge the Americans while they reloaded. To use this to our advantage the Americans took the empty clips and hit them on their helmet or on rocks to simulate
      5 3
    • Once you put a shred of thought into this, it doesn't make sense
      4
    • No they the noise it made when you reloaded
      8 2
    • EDIT:well I I'm a fucking idiot,didn't actually read the whole thing. Fact this isn't true as the ping of the M1's clip was not load enough to be heard over the gunfire of a battlefield, however it is possible that this could work if literally nobody was shooting.

    • They would use empty garand clips to make enemies peek out of cover by banging them on their helmets. LIKE SO PEOPLE CAN LEARN SOMETHIN :)
      5
    • This never happened. I hate seeing this spread
      4
    • This has been proven false, the ping so too quiet to be heard from more then 50feet in perfect conditions, much less the heat of battle
      4 3
    • This isn’t true, in the heat of battle you’re never going to be sitting there, close enough, listening for an m1 Garand clip to fall on the ground. On top of that, normally your in a squad with multiple guys and it only takes a few seconds to reload...
      4
    • Counter fact: WW2 soldiers did indeed try to do this, but it would not work very often because it would be difficult to hear the PING in the middle of a fire fight
      4
    • This isn’t tru at all. I don’t know if they could hear a ping after 8 rounds of 30-06 and no ear protection... multiply that by a squad of 8 or platoon of 40 and that myth is BS.

    • Ping is Chinese but sure.
      4
    • Japanese doesn't have NG sounds tho.
      4 5
    • This was close to fact... But ya fucled it up
      4 2
    • Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t believe ping is a Japanese name
      5 1
    • "oh ya i akready knew about thaWOAH LMAO"

    • This is ok because it's not real. Make jokes about nigs that nog and it's racist. Why? Because it's real.

    • M1s are famous for the ping noise they make while reloading. So, Axis btards used the noise to indicate when to attack the reloading allied guys. And then allied guys figured their tactic out and faked the noise by hitting clips against rocks or the helmets to make the axis guys come out of cover.

    • When the germans ran out of ammunition they would reload and throw the empty magazine into enemy territory and shout grenade making the enemy leave cover. Very evil tactics.

    • That's not a war fact.... plus... ping is a Chinese name, not a Japanese name. However, I can totally see how throwing something to make a sound that scares someone out from where they're hiding is a thing that can happen.
      5 8
    • This isn’t true, it’s bullshit. Like so people don’t believe this myth
      4 5
    • Close but no, they would actually hit them against their helmets to mimic the sound of the cartridge poping out when they had to reload tricking the enemy out of cover

    • You just shot 8 rounds of 30-06 with several others around you doing the same thing. Everyone is deaf. You don’t hear the ping🤦🏼‍♂️
      4 2
    • Not to be picky but isn’t ping more of a Chinese name?
      4
    • I least they acknowledged that Garands are loaded with clips, not magazines.
      4 4
    • Early in the war when everyone would reload at the same time no one would be able to shoot resulting in death. After they figured out the problem half of them would shoot and relaod making the Japs think they were empty while the other half if people would kill them. Pretty neat and a cool fact
      4 2
    • Here I am thinking it was an actual fun fact of war
      4 5
    • Jokes aside it made the enemy think they were reloading and they peeped up and got shot
      4 2
    • In the midst of war you can’t hear the ping, veterans have said it themselves
      Sw1nkz 16d

    • Just saying, the fact this is based on is still bullshit. It’s been tested. The noise was in no way loud enough to be heard from more than a few feet away
      4
    • That is mostly bullshit, the germans didn't have superhuman hearing
      3
    • This actually originated in the eastern front against Germans as on the west the fighting was usually to intense for that interaction however on the east battles were usually slow and very intense with both sides having veteran soldiers.

    • This is so wrong, no one can make out a small ping with there’s overlapping gun fires from rifles that shoot 30-06 and machine gun fire.

    • Ping isn’t even a Japanese name
      4 3
    • You would actually never be able to hear the ping during combat
      4
    • The ping of a Garand mag getting ejected wasn't loud and often times wouldnt be heard over the sounds of battle
      3 1
    • How the fuck are people on the receiving end of a firefight gonna hear that “ping”?
      3 7
    • This is partially true but the Japanese soldiers would emerge themselves because they thought that the American would be reloading
      4
    • Ping was unintentional signal to enemy that soldiers needed reload... making it synthetically was trying to fool enemies...

    • Ping is a Chinese name

    • But... Ping is Chinese, not Japanese...

    • They had us in the first half, not gonna lie
      GARB0 18d

    • Was actually cause they thought the Americans had run out of ammo
      3 1
    • Had me in the first half not gonna lie
      3 1
    • No one in Japan is named ping
      4 4
    • Fun fact this didn’t happen it’s just a common misconception
      henten 18d

    • Nah. The sound is unnoticeable in battle, and the soldiers are probably deaf af after constant explosions and gun firing.
      3 6
    • They had us in the first half not gonna lie...
      3
    • but that's the wrong asian, it's the chongs who have the ping ling names
      3
    • War fact: this is bullshit
      4
    • Not gonna lie you had me in the first half
      3
    • This is so inaccurate and misleading... It was the Marines who fought the Japanese in WWII, duh.
      3 1
    • The fact that people still think this is true is pretty fuckin sad
      3
    • I know it’s a joke but just fyi Japanese doesn’t have an “ng” sound. “Ping”, which is an actual Chinese name, would be translated into ピン (ぴん) which not only means a physical pin but also sounds like “Pin” Rather than “Ping”. 冗談ですけど。

    • This isnt true
      BUTT3R5 18d
      3 1
    • I thought it was cause the Japanese would think they were reloading so they would then get the jump on them but damn that was good
      3 3
    • Actually it made the sound and it would be make the enemy soldiers think they were reloading
      4 4
    • You had me in the first half not gonna lie
      3
    • If they actually did this it was probably to convince the Japs they were reloading
      3 1
    • There’s no way anyone could hear the ping over screaming, explosions, and gunfire
      SSoSS 18d
      3 2
    • Assuming that Americans actually did this the Japanese would probably just open fire. No matter how fucked up someone’s name is, there is no way it sounds like a piece of metal hitting a rock
      3 8
    • Actually it’s nearly impossible to hear the ping, and you can reload fast enough for it not to be an issue.
