Introduction

Crosshair - Off | Third Person - Off | Advanced Flight Model - Optional | Optional MODs

Each of the missions contains a unique set of capture points that are connected to create a strategic web network.

The main goal is to capture connected points marked with flags. The team which captures all of the objectives, win.

Each team has 4 player classes to choose from, and the chosen class dictates what equipment you can use and what you are restricted from using.

You get basic credits every minute while on the server and you get extra credits for killing players, destroying vehicles, helicopters and jets. That enables you to use the shops to buy tactical gear, vehicles, helicopter, drones and jets to support your team.

Select team

TeamSelectionScreen grab.jpg

When you reach the lobby screen you have team selection on the left, class selection in the center and connected players on the right.

In the team selection (see picture above), take a look at the player-count on each team and select the team with the lowest number of players.

Nobody likes playing with uneven player-counts. This is most important when the server population is low. When the server is near full a slight lack of balance in the numbers does not have a big impact.

Select soldier class

In the center of the lobby screen each team has 4 player classes to choose from, and the chosen class desides what equipment can or cannot be used. You can switch player class during the game by going back the the lobby and selecting another empty slot.

Each team have 4 classes to choose from:

Note icon.png There are 2 kinds of map layouts

MapBase.jpg

NOTE: There is several maps and layouts on the server. The map above is just an example

In this example we have entered the server as BLUFOR and we now look at our map displayed above.

North side of the map is our (BLUFOR) Area. Main Base right and Airport left top (the big circles in the top). South side is OPFOR area with their Main Base top area and Airport at the bottom (the big circles bottom left).

Our 2 mobile spawnpoints (MHQ-ALPHA, MHQ-BRAVO) are strategically placed, and can be moved if needed elsewhere.

We have advanced very well and because OPFOR only have one capture point (flag) left, then the game has entered Sudden Death gamemode at "Cancon". Cancon (their last flag) can therefore not be recaptured and will continue to drop even without BLUFOR players inside. So OPFOR need to attack another flag.

The only flag that OPFOR can attack is the one connected to "Cancon" because you need to have a line on the map from a flag you own to a flag you want to attack.

If OPFOR do not capture the flag then BLUFOR win and the server will continue to next (random) map.

Storage container and HQ shop

StorageContainer.jpg

In the main base (HQ) next to the little building there is a Storage container with free items/equipment for you. When you have equipment you do not need anymore or you are about to disconnect you can put the items in the container for others to use. (If you just drop stuff on the ground it will despawn after a while)

The shops in HQ contains the full assortment of gear to buy. When in HQ scroll your mouse to get to the shop option.

Where to go from spawn (HQ)

To get to the front you can either walk, fast travel or buy a vehicle.
