Squad abilities Edit

Tommies

Tommie uniform changes

The squad is a rifle squad with the ability to call artillery in the form of mortar shots, sector artillery, and creeping barrage.

The Tommies benefit of a squad passive ability which gives them increased trench capture speed and additional points when successfully capturing a trench. Apart from the capture bonus, the entire squad also benefits from a 20% faster pistol reload speed and additional rifle accuracy up to 25%.

This makes the Tommies a well-balanced all-round squad capable of both capturing and defending trenches.

Squad Roles Edit

Corporal Edit

Corporal

The role of the Corporal is to lead the squad using commands, keeping them close-by for fast communication and call in artillery support when needed.

He can also call in artillery and issue squad orders with the commands menu, brought up by holding the Q key. Squad orders, called by Q-left click, create a marker on the map and give score bonuses to members of the squad for killing enemies at that position. Artillery, called by Q-right click, can take the form of mortar shots, consisting of three shells; sector artillery, consisting of eight shells; and creeping barrage, with twelve shells.

Gunner Edit

Gunner

The role of the Gunner is to provide cover fire. The slowest moving role it is his task to lay down fire while the whole squad advances. As the Gunner cannot sprint at low squad levels, he is very vulnerable in open ground and slow to take up any position. However, the Gunner is also the only person in the squad armed with a machine gun.

The gunner can arm himself with the British Lewis gun or Hotchkiss machine gun. Along with experience bonuses upon kill assists, the Gunner is the guard of your squad, intended to mow down enemy reinforcements and advancing forces.
