Basic Infantry Handbook



Introduction


The most common form of soldier seen in Call of Duty: World at War is the basic soldier. There are numerous reasons for this, such as the fact that the majority of weapons fit in with the standard infantryman's style of play. Submachine guns fill the role of the rusher and rifles fill a support role. The reason that LMGs, HMGs, shotguns, and sniper rifles are not weapons used by infantrymen is simple. LMGs and HMGs are mainly for support. They provide covering fire, and shouldn't get in the middle of things. The difference between the rifleman and the heavy gunner, is that the rifleman should move with the rusher, while the heavy gunner should stay back and lay down suppressing fire. Shotguns aren't included in an infantryman's arsenal, because their role is that of a sabateur. Shotgunners should stay away from the rest of their team, and eliminate members of the opposing team who are trying to secure an objective. Sniper rifles are most definately not in an infantryman's weapon arsenal, because the main purpose of a sniper is to pick off targets from a far.


Weapons Information


Rifles



Gewehr 43

In 1941, Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union as part of Operation Barbarossa. Just prior to the opening of hostilities the Red Army had started re-arming its infantry, complementing its older bolt-action rifles with the new semi-automatic Tokarev SVT-38s and SVT-40s. This proved to be somewhat of a shock to the Germans, who ramped up their semi-automatic rifle development efforts significantly. The Tokarev used a simple gas-operated mechanism, which was soon emulated by Walther in the G41(W), producing the Gewehr 43 (or G43). The simpler mechanism of the G43 made it lighter, easier to mass produce, and far more reliable. The addition of a 10-round detachable box magazine also solved the slow reloading problem. The Gewehr 43 was put into production in October 1943, and followed in 1944 by the Karabiner 43 (K43), which was identical to the G43 in every way save for the letter stamped on the side. The G/K43 was issued in limited numbers in 1944 and 1945 to units of the Wehrmacht (Wikipedia). Unlocked: Level 6

BRiddler's Opinion: This is a great gun. The power is incredible, and as long as you have a somewhat quick trigger finger, you will be successful.
Clip Size: 10
Reserve Shots:
Fire Rate: 1200 RPM (semi-automatic)
Damage: 40-30
Iron Sights: 9/10
Reload Time: empty- 4 seconds; not empty- 3 seconds
Attachments: Suppressor (25 kills), Aperture Sight (75 kills), Telescopic Sight (100 kills), Rifle Grenade (150 kills)
Recommended Attachment: Aperture Sight, because it allows you to pick off distant targets, but at the same time you can take out close to mid-range targets.
Good Maps: The Gewehr-43 is good on almost every map, as long as you stay out of large firefights.

M1A1 Carbine

The M1 carbine and its reduced-power .30 cartridge was never intended to serve as a primary weapon for combat infantrymen, nor was it comparable to more powerful assault rifles developed late in the war. Nevertheless, the carbine was soon widely issued to infantry officers, NCOs, ammunition bearers, forward artillery observers, paratroopers, and other frontline troops. Its reputation in front-line combat was mixed. Some soldiers and Marines, especially those who were unable to use a full-size rifle as their primary weapon, preferred the carbine over the Garand because of the weapon's small size and light weight. The carbine gained generally high praise from airborne troops in the early stages of the war who were issued the folding-stock M1A1, though negative reports began to surface with airborne operations in Sicily in 1943, and increased during the fall and winter of 1944. In the Pacific theatre, soldiers and guerrilla forces operating in heavy jungle with only occasional enemy contact generally praised the carbine for its combination of light weight, short overall length, and accuracy at close ranges. The carbine's exclusive use of non-corrosive primered ammunition was found to be a godsend by troops and ordnance personnel serving in the Pacific, where barrel corrosion was a significant issue, though not to the same extent in Europe, where some soldiers reported misfires attributed to bad primers. Other soldiers and Marines engaged in frequent daily firefights (particularly those serving in the Philippines) found the weapon to have insufficient stopping power and penetration. Reports of the carbine's failure to stop enemy soldiers, sometimes after multiple hits, appeared in individual after-action reports, postwar evaluations, and service histories of both the U.S. Army and the U.S. Marine Corps. Aware of these shortcomings, the U.S. Army, its Pacific Command Ordnance staff, and the Aberdeen small arms facility continued to work on shortened versions of the Garand throughout the war, though none were ever officially adopted (Wikipedia). Unlocked: Level 65

BRiddler's Opinion: This gun is my favorite of all the rifles. Like the Gewehr 43, it has great power, and as long as you have a quick trigger finger, you'll do fine. The thing that I think makes it better than the Gewehr is that it has the ability to be fitted with a bayonet, which I think is great for CQC.
Clip Size: 15 (no extended clip) 30 (extended clip)

M1 Garand

The M1's semiautomatic operation gave United States forces a significant advantage in firepower and shot-to-shot response time over individual enemy infantrymen in battle (German and Japanese soldiers were usually armed with bolt-action rifles). General George S. Patton called it "the greatest implement of battle ever devised." The impact of faster-firing infantry small arms in general soon stimulated both Allied and Axis forces to greatly augment issue of semi- and fully-automatic weapons then in production, as well as to develop new types of infantry firearms (Wikipedia). Unlocked: Level 17

BRiddler's Opinion: I personally didn't like this gun for a long time. Luckily, I stuck with it, and now that I have the sniper scope, it is beastly.
Clip Size: 8
Reserve Shots: 56
Fire Rate: 444 RPM (semi-automatic)
Damage: 3 hits without SP, 2 hits with SP
Iron Sights: 7/10
Reload Time: (empty) 8/10 (only gun to reload faster when empty) (not empty) 7/10
Attachments: Flash Hider (25 kills), Bayonet (75 kills) , Rifle Grenade (100 kills), Sniper Scope (150 kills)
Recommended Attachment: Bayonet. I would say Sniper Scope, but that would make it a sniper rifle, not an infantry weapon.
Good Maps: The M1 Garand can be used effectively on all maps, as long as you don't engage in constant close-quarters combat.

StG44

The StG44 (Sturmgewehr 44 or "assault rifle model 1944") was an assault rifle developed in Nazi Germany during World War II and was the first of its kind to see major deployment. Developed from the Mkb 42(H) "machine carbine", the StG44 combined the characteristics of a carbine, submachine gun and automatic rifle. StG is an abbreviation of Sturmgewehr. The name was chosen for propaganda reasons and literally means storm rifle as in "to storm an enemy position" (i.e. "assault", leading to the modern terminology "assault rifle"). After the adoption of the StG44, the English translation "assault rifle" became the accepted designation for this type of infantry small arm (Wikipedia). Unlocked: Level 37

BRiddler's Opinion: This gun is good. Yup. Its good. No recoil, fully automatic.....unfortunately, it has relatively low power and a slow rate of fire.
Clip Size:
Reserve Shots:
Fire Rate: 535 RPM
Damage: 30-20
Iron Sights: 8/10
Reload Time: empty- 3.35 seconds; not empty- 2.45 seconds
Attachments: Flash Hider (25 kills), Aperture Sight (50 kills), Telescopic Sight (100 kills)
Recommended Attachment: Aperture sight, because it allows you to engage targets at both longe and short distances.
Good Maps: All maps are good for the StG 44, as long as you avoid CQC with SMG's.

SVT-40

By the time of German invasion in June 1941, the SVT-40 was already in widespread use in the Red Army. In a Soviet infantry division's TO&E, one-third of rifles were supposed to be SVTs, although in practice this was seldom achieved. The first months of the war were disastrous for the Soviet Union, and hundreds of thousands of these rifles were lost. To make up for this enormous amount of lost weaponry, production of the Mosin-Nagant rifles was reintroduced. In contrast, the SVT was more difficult to manufacture, and troops with only rudimentary training had difficulty maintaining it. In addition, submachine guns like the PPSh-41 had proven their value as simple and cheap, but effective weapons to supplement infantry firepower. This all led to a gradual decline in SVT production. However, if German soldiers, with their initial lack of an amiable semi-automatic rifle, captured this weapon, they would usually prefer to use this instead of their own weapons. In 1941, over a million SVTs were produced, but in 1942 Ishevsk arsenal was ordered to cease SVT production and switch back to the Mosin-Nagant 91/30. Only 264,000 SVTs were manufactured in 1942 and production continued to diminish until the order to cease production was finally given in January 1945. Total production of the SVT-38/40 was probably around 1.6 million rifles, of which about 55,000 were the SVT-40 sniper variant (Wikipedia). Unlocked: Level 1

BRiddler's Opinion: I'm going to be perfectly honest. I don't like this gun. The only thing that bothers me about it is the recoil. I mean, I can use it just fine. I just think that there are better rifles.
Clip Size: 10
Reserve Shots: 120
Fire Rate: 1200 RPM (semi-automatic)
Damage: 40-30
Iron Sights: 8/10
Reload Time: empty- 4 seconds; not empty- 3.23 seconds
Attachments: Flash Hider (25 kills), Aperture Sight (75 kills) , Telescopic Sight (150 kills)
Recommended Attachment: Aperture sight, because it allows you to engage targets at both longe and short distances.
Good Maps: All maps are good for the SVT-41, as long as you stay back. You don't want to engage in CQC with a SMGer.

Submachine Guns


MP40

The MP40 (Maschinenpistole 40, literally "Machine Pistol 40") is a submachine gun developed in Germany and used extensively by paratroopers, platoon and squad leaders, and other troops during World War II. The MP40 was characterized by its relatively low rate of fire and low recoil (Wikipedia). Unlocked: Level 10

BRiddler's Opinion: This gun is great. The best part is that it is a two hit kill in Core without Stopping Power, so you can use Double Tap to fix it's rate of fire. This works amazing in CQC.
Clip Size: 32 (no dual magazine) 64 (with dual magazine)
Reserve Shots:
Fire Rate: 535 RPM
Damage: 40-30
Iron Sights: 7/10
Reload Time: empty- 2.9 seconds (dual magazine- 3.3 seconds); not empty- 2.3 seconds (dual magazine- 2.6 seconds)
Attachments: Suppressor (25 kills), Aperture Sight (75 kills) , Dual Magazine (150 kills)
Recommended Attachment: Dual magazines, because when you are in the middle of a firefight, the last thing you want to do is reload.
Good Maps: All maps are good for the MP-40. This gun excels at mid-range, so go in areas where you will engage enemies at mid-range.

PPSh-41

The impetus for the development of the PPSh came partly from the Winter War against Finland, where it was found that submachine guns were a highly effective tool for close-quarter fighting in forests or built-up urban areas. The weapon was developed in mid-1941 and was produced in a network of factories in Moscow, with high-level local Party members made directly responsible for production targets being met. A few hundred weapons were produced in November 1941 and another 155,000 were produced over the next five months. By spring 1942, the PPSh factories were producing roughly 3,000 units a day. The PPSh-41 was a classic example of a design adapted for mass production (other examples of such wartime design were the M3 submachine gun, MP40 and the Sten). Its parts (excluding the barrel) could be produced by a relatively unskilled workforce with simple equipment available in an auto repair garage or tin shop, freeing up more skilled workers to other tasks. The PPSh-41 used 87 components compared to 95 for the PPD-40 and the PPSh could be manufactured with 7.3 machining hours compared with 13.7 hours for the PPD. In the field, the PPSh was a durable, low-maintenance weapon that could fire 900 rounds/min. The weapon had a crude compensator to lessen muzzle climb and a hinged receiver which facilitated field-stripping and cleaning the bore in battle conditions. Over 6 million of these weapons were produced by the end of the war. The Soviets would often equip whole regiments and even entire divisions with the weapon, giving them unmatched short-range firepower. Though 35-round curved box magazines were available from 1942, the average infantryman would keep a higher-capacity drum magazine as the initial load. The PPSh-41 drum magazine was a copy of the Finnish M31 Suomi magazine which held 71 rounds, but in practice, misfeeding of the spring was likely to occur with more than 65 or so cartridges. The standard load was probably one drum and a number of box magazines, when box magazines were available (Wikipedia). Unlocked: Level 53

BRiddler's Opinion: This gun, in my opinion, is OK. Just OK. The power is a little too low for my liking, but the rate of fire is impressive.
Clip Size: 35 (no drum) 72 (with drum)
Reserve Shots:
Fire Rate: 1250 RPM
Damage: 20-15
Iron Sights: 7/10
Reload Time: empty- 2.8 seconds (with drum- 4.1 seconds); not empty- 2.3 seconds (with drum- 2.5 seconds)
Attachments: Aperture Sight (25 kills), Drum Magazine (50 kills)
Recommended Attachment: Drum magazine, because when you are in the middle of a firefight, the last thing you want to do is reload.
Good Maps: All maps are good for this gun. The recoil is almost nonexistant, so taking on longe-range targets isn't a problem, but the fire rate is so impressive that close range targets aren't a problem either.

Thompson

The Thompson was favored by soldiers and civilians alike for its compactness, large .45 ACP cartridge, and high volume of automatic fire. In 1938, the Thompson submachine gun was adopted by the U.S. military, serving during World War II and later into the Korean War, as well as early stages of the Vietnam War. Other Allied countries purchased the Thompson as well, notably the United Kingdom and France. Modifications to simplify production and reduce cost were made in 1942, resulting in the M1 and M1A1 models, which were commonly carried by both non-commissioned and commissioned officers (Wikipedia). Unlocked: Level 1

BRiddler's Opinion: For those who have played with me, you know how I feel about Tommy. For those who don't.....he is my best friend. Great rate of fire, power, and accuracy makes this gun my personal favorite.
Clip Size: 20 (no drum) 40 (with drum)

Type 100

The Type 100 was a Japanese submachine gun used during World War II, and the only submachine gun produced by Japan in any quantity (Wikipedia). Unlocked: Level 25

BRiddler's Opinion: This is a good gun. Its rate of fire and power is identical to the Thompson, and it has a larger clip.
Clip Size: 30 (no extended clip) 60 (with extended clip)
Reserve Shots:
Fire Rate: 750 RPM
Damage: 40-20
Iron Sights: 6/10

Attachments: Suppressor (25 kills), Aperture Sight (50 kills), Extended Clip (75 kills)
Recommended Attachment: Extended clip, because when you are in the middle of a firefight, the last thing you want to do is reload.
Good Maps: All maps are good for this gun. Stay in areas where you won't have to worry about long range, because this guns rate of fire and power is unmatched.

Perks and Their Uses


Perk 1


Special Grenades x3; Unlocked: Level 1- Allows user to carry three Special Grenades (Flare or Tabun)
Use- This perk isn't commonly seen, but can come in handy when you are in a tight spot.
Flares have three primary purposes:

1. Distraction. Signal Flares are very annoying, and bright. They work very well in situations where you want to blind the enemy, or get them to look elsewhere.

2. Mark a position/objective. Even though this function has become somewhat obsolete (you can now do this by going on the map and selecting a point), it can still help those who aren't in your squad. Throw on the position, and everyone will know where it is.

3. Eliminate darkness. If an area you feel is infested with enemies is too dark, simply throw the flare. It will turn night into day, and any hidden enemies will be revealed.

Tabun gas has one very large purpose:

1. Infiltrator. If you need to infiltrate an enemy position, you can somewhat blind them and slow them down by throwing a tabun. The downside is that you will be affected as well.


Satchel Charge x2; Unlocked: Level 1- Enables user to carry two satchel charges. These are detonated by remote.
Use- Satchel Charges aren't typically seen in an infantrymans arsenal, simply because the primary uses doesn't fit the infantrymans job. Even so, I don't expect you to stick with the model infantryman template, so I'll fill you in on its use. As far as I'm concerned, there are three main ways to use satchel charges:

1. Grenade. This is a somewhat difficult way to use satchel charges, but is effective. You simply throw it like a grenade and detonate it. The pros of doing this is the time it takes to explode it smaller than that of a grenade, and the blast radius is larger. The downsides of using satchel charges as grenades is that it takes a long time to throw them, and the range is very small.

2. Tank Destroyer. If you need to destroy an enemy tank, throw a satchel charge underneath it, or on its backside. If thrown underneath, the tank WILL blow up.

3. Ambush. This is a simple technique. Place your satchel charge on the ground, on a wall/ceiling, or in a vehicle. Sit back and wait for an enemy to get near your satchel charge and detonate it.


M9A1 Bazooka x2; Unlocked: Level 2- User will now carry a bazooka on his/her back, and will be able to fire two explosive rounds at an enemy.
Use- M9A1 Bazookas are yet another perk that isn't in an infantrymans arsenal in normal situations, but why should I expect you to be a concrete infantryman? The M9A1 Bazooka has two major uses in my opinion:

1. Tank Destroyer. Fire the explosive rounds at the backside of the tank for maximum damage. Unfortunately, these aren't very effective.

2. Mass Genocide. Use when you are outside of a building or structure that is teeming wit enemies. Aim at an opening and fire. Hopefully, you will kill at least one enemy.


Bomb Squad; Unlocked: Level 16- Allows user to see enemy explosive devices.
Use- This perk should be used by those who are planning on infiltrating enemy positions, because if the enemy has hunkered down somewhere, they will have planted some form of explosive device to slow down your advance. This perk really only has one use:

1. Infiltrator. Whether you are entering an enemy snipers position, or an enemies base, there will be defences to keep you out. If you are infiltrating, it helps to know where these defences are, so that you can promptly dispatch of them and continue your infiltration. The enemies explosive devices will appear with a skull marker over it.


Bouncing Betties x2; Unlocked: Level 24- Enables user to carry two bouncing betties. These bouncing betties will explode either when an enemy gets within close proximity of the betties, or when an enemy shoots them. Infantrymen don't carry bouncing betties, but you can if you wish.
Use- BBs should be used by those that are planning on camping. There is really only one major use:

1. Defense. If you are camping, it helps to be able to have something (or someone) covering your back. That's what BBs do. Place them where enemies won't see them, like beside doors, and wait.


Bandolier; Unlocked: Level 40- User now carries additional ammunition for primary and secondary weapons.
Use- This perk comes in handy for all infantrymen who are able to stay alive for extended periods of time. if you find you are constantly running out of ammo, this perk will become your friend. There is one use for this perk:

1. Survivalist. Whether you are camping, rushing, or whatever, if you find that you are staying alive for a long time, you will probably also find that you are running low on ammo. This perk fixes that, and allows you to use your weapon for a longer amount of time.


Primary Grenades x2; Unlocked: Level 44- Allows user to carry an extra primary grenade (Frag, Sticky, or Molotav).
Use- This perk is actually a very good perk for an infantryman. There are two main uses for the frag:

1. Spam. This perk gives you an extra grenade that you can simply throw in the general area of the enemy.If you think you know where an enemy is, but are too far away to shoot him (he is behind cover as well), simply lob a grenade in his direction. I do not advise the use of this technique.

2. Control. Lets say you are approaching a building, and then you see a muzzle flash from inside. Begin cooking a grenade while you are approaching, and when it reaches the second or third pulse, ricochet it off the wall/ceiling. If done correctly, it will give you a kill everytime.

There are also two main uses for the stcky grenade:

1. Tank Destroyer. Throw on the back of a tank for maximum damage. The grenade will stick and deliver a significent amount of damage to the tank.

2. Anti-infantry. The cool thing about this grenade is that it sticks to everything. If you hit an enemy with it, it will stick to him. Congratulations, you just got a kill.

I do not use molotavs, but I believe there is only one use:

1. Anti-infantry. Throw at an enemy. In Core, you better hope for a direct hit. In Hardcore, the molotav is capable of taking out multiple enemies.


M2 Flamethrower; Unlocked: Level 65- Enables user to carry the M2 Flamethrower, which can be used to burn enemy infantry and dogs. Not exactly a perk for an infantryman, but hey, that probably won't stop you.
Use- This perk really only has one use:

1. Burn 'em out. If an enemy (or enemies) is camped out in a building, you can use the flamethrower to kill them in a wave of fire. The cool thing about this perk is that it never runs out, but it does overheat.


Perk 2


Stopping Power; Unlocked: Level 1- Gives user increased bullet damage.
Use- This is probably the most useful and most common of all the perks used by riflemen. As it is unlocked at a low level, everyone has access to it. This perk should be used by those who are happy with their weapons fire rate, and wish to kill enemies faster.


Fireworks; Unlocked: Level 1- User now has increased explosive damge, and blast radius is increased.
Use- Not commonly seen or used, this perk should be used if you are using the Grenade Launcher as if it were your primary weapon (not recommended), or if you want a lot of grenade kills. I don't recommend it though.


Flack Jacket; Unlocked: Level 1- If you are using Flack Jacket, explosives now do less damage.
Use- Not commonly seen or used, this perk should be used if you are constantly being blown up by something, or if you just want to survive explosions. Hint: The MP40 is a 2 hit kill at close range without SP....so you could use this perk.


Gas Mask; Unlocked: Level 2- The effects of Tabun gas are decreased.
Use- Yet another perk not commonly seen or used, this perk should be used if you know that Tabun gas will be used against you, or if you have Tabun gas and want to run through it, slaughtering your enemies with little trouble. Hint: MP40


Juggernaut; Unlocked: Level 4- Gives the user increased health.
Use- This perk should be used if you want to stay alive longer. Sometimes, you may not want more firepower (SP), but you will want more health (Juggernaut).


Camoflauge; Unlocked: Level 12- If equipped, the user won't show up on radar when an enemy calls up a recon plane.
Use- Use this perk if you are planning on being stealthy. If you want to move behind enemy lines without them knowing this may be perfect for you. Another bonus is that the enemy typically uses the recon plane extensively, so if you don't show up on it, you will catch them off guard.


Sleight of Hand; Unlocked: Level 28- Decreases users reload time.
Use- This isn't exactly the best infantryman perk, as it is better used with Machine Guns, but if you find reloading a tedious process, you might want to use it. Remember, in a firefight, reloading is the last thing you want to do. The faster you reload, the less time you are vulnerable.


Shades; Unlocked: Level 32- Reduces effects of signal flares.
Use- I do not recommend this perk for anyone. Its only use is if you are constantly being blinded by signal flares, which is unlikely.


Double Tap; Unlocked: Level 36- Increases fire rate of the users firearm.
Use- Some weapons, you may find, just don't fire fast enough. If you feel this is the case, you might want to consider this perk.


Overkill; Unlocked: Level 56- Allows user to carry two primary weapons.
Use- If you want to be able to eliminate targets at both short and long range very effectively, this perk allows you to do so. Use a SMG and a rifle, and fire away.


Perk 3


Deep Impact; Unlocked: Level 1- User recieves increased bullet penetration.
Use- Sometimes you will find that an enemy is hiding behind cover. "No problem", you say, for you have deep impact.


Extreme Conditioning; Unlocked: Level 1- User recieves increased sprint time.
Use- If you need to get to a position or objective quickly (before the enemy), you can use this perk. It also helps with retreating, because you can sprint for a longer time, and can outdistance your pursuers.


Steady Aim; Unlocked: Level 1- Users weapon recieves increased accuracy when firing from the hip.
Use- This perk works great if you constantly find yourself in CQC. The more you hit your enemy, the greater the chance you have of killing him.


Toss Back; Unlocked: Level 7- Resets grenade fuse to 3 seconds.
Use- For fun, you can throw a grenade at the ground and continuously pick it up....it will never explode. For a serious use, if you encounter an enemys grenade, you can pick it up and throw it back no problem.


Second Chance; Unlocked: Level 10- Before death, you will drop down and have the oppurtunity to eliminate the enemy with your pistol. Also, if a teammate has Second Chance, you can both revive each other.
Use- If you want to have another oppurtunity at getting a kill, this perk would be it. It also helps that you can get revived so that you can fight another day.


Martyrdom; Unlocked: Level 20- After death, you will drop a live grenade.
Use- After infiltrating an enemy position, you will often find yourself being killed (after getting a few kills yourself, of course). Once killed, you will drop a grenade, and hopefully, your grenade will dispose of your killer,


Fireproof; Unlocked: Level 48- Reduces fire damage.
Use- This perk is somewhat useless, becuase the only people who have flamethrowers are level 65 (uncommon), or get a lucky throw with a molotav (maybe skillful throw).


Dead Silence; Unlocked: Level 52- User will now run silently.
Use- If you are going for complete stealth, this will help a lot. A majority of the very good players in CoD will listen for your footsteps. If you don't make the noise, they won't know you're coming until it's too late.


Iron Lungs; Unlocked: Level 60- User can hold his/her breath for longer periods of time.
Use- Unfortunately, this perk is only useful on sniper rifles. Since no infantryman uses sniper rifles, this perk will be labeled as useless.


Reconnaissance; Unlocked: Level 64- User can see tanks, dogs, and artillery strikes on the radar.
Use- If you want to avoid these things, this perk'll let you do just that.



Map Strategery



Rifleman-
Take cover often, and engage enemies at a distance. This map will be littered with snipers, who will often camp in the "Admin Building" and the "Managers Office", so be sure to keep an eye out for them. As long as you engage targets at medium-to-longe range, you'll do fine.

Recommended Class:

Gewehr 43 w/Aperture
.357 Magnum
Frag
Smoke
Bandolier
Stopping Power
Steady Aim

Rusher-
If you are rushing, stay out of the open. If you are in the open, be prepared to be picked off by an opposing sniper or rifleman. If you find yourself in the open, duck behind cover, then advance. Have your friendlies provide suppressing fire so that you can move to a safe place. As long as you stay out of the open, you should be able to perform quite well.

Recommended Class:

PPSh 41 w/Drum
.357 Magnum
Frag
Tabun
Bandolier
Stopping Power
Steady Aim



Rifleman-
Stay back, preferably behind the cover of the broken walls by the "Back Offices" or "Bedrooms". Use the walls as cover and pick off all enemies in your sight. The majority of enemies on this map will use SMG's, so be prepared for a rough fight.

Recommended Class:

M1 Garand w/bayonet
Personal Preference
Frag
Flare
Bandolier
Stopping Power
Steady Aim

Rusher-
If you are rushing, be prepared for one heck of a fight. Almost everyone will be rushing, so you need to be aware of your surroundings and quick to the trigger. Stay away from the outside areas, because more than likely, someone is waiting there for you.

Recommended Class:

Thompson w/Drum
Personal Preference
Frag
Tabun
Primary Grenade x2
Stopping Power
Steady Aim


Rifleman-
This map is ideal for any rifleman, because the majority of firefights will occur at medium to long range. Avoid going up to the "Crow's Nest" or "Eagle's Perch", because the enemy will be looking for you there. Make sure you keep a watch on these positions because the enemy WILL go up there, and will then be yet another one of your victims.

Rusher-
This map is somewhat difficult for rushing, but once you get used to the flow of the game, it become quite easy. You can be certain that enemy snipers will take up position in the "Crow's Nest" or "Eagle's Perch", so all you have to do is rush up there and take them out. Stay away from open areas (like the "Altar") for the most success.

Rifleman-
A rifleman's paradise, this map features lots of open areas. This makes it perfect for picking off enemies at medium to long range. Stay behind cover, or hide in tall foliage and pick off your enemies. They won't know what hit them.

Rusher-
This map is somewhat difficult to rush on, but it is more than manageable. Stay out of the open (mainly the area down the middle of the map), unless you want to be picked off by opposing snipers. If running through the "Cliffs", hide behind the numerous rocks as you advance. The "Upper Pass" is also your friend, becasue it gives you a clear path to take out snipers in the "Mausoleum", or by the "Waterfall".

For this map, it is best to stay behind cover. It would be preferable to stay back by the "Main Stairs" or "Main Gate", because you can see every enemy that is coming your way.

Rusher-
Close-quarters reigns supreme on this map. Almost every enemy you encounter will be a rusher, so you need to be quick to the trigger. Try to flank your enemy by using either the "Bamboo Courtyard" or the "Wheelbarrow Courtyard". These two paths will lead you to the enemies side of the map, and allow you to flank them.

Rifleman-
This map is definately not a rifleman's best friend. The map is designed for CQC, so a rifle isn't the best choice. It is, however, possible to dominate with a rifle. I find that by camping in the "Sniper Balcony" or the "HQ/Pipe Room", one can be very successful on this map.

Rifleman-
With all the open areas and areas ideal for cover, this map works well with riflemen. Stay behind cover, and watch out for snipers by the "Opera Steps", "Office Building", or "Reichstag". Camp in "Luftwaffe Office", "Bunker", or "Memorial" if you have to.

Keep moving. That is the only advice I can give you for this map that isn't obvious. Use cover of course....watch out for snipers. But really, just keep moving. Oh yeah, and watch out for tanks.

Rifleman-
I find that if you sort of camp in the hangar, you will find a lot of success as a rifleman. The enemy will continue pouring in, so you'll never run out of enemies to eliminate. If you don't want to do this, you can always use the "Barracks".
