Satchels, Grenades, and Soldiers
By The Asian Driver and 2 collaborators
This is a guide for Axis and Allied players tips to save you or/and your teammates. If you follow these tips and tricks, you may just live a little longer. If lucky, a bit of praise.
What every soldier should do is to protect their teammates. If you don't, their is a likely chance that you may die. So, I made a list on what not to do list. Well, here it is:
Things not to do:
1. Shooting your teammates unpurposely 2. Don't forgive 3. Be a big sassage on the mic 4. Shoot everywhere except the enemy 5. Throwing grenades in windows 6. Throwing grenades out windows 7. Running around in circles 8. Be rambo (please don't. It's embarrassing) 9. Throwing smoke grenades on your point 10. Be a hero even if you are a hero 11. Requesting MG ammo even though your not an Machine Gunner 12. Go through an alleyway with dead people 13. Going through dark alleyways (Optional: With dead people) 14. Wandering in the middle of the road with a bunch of enemies 15. Bayonet a tank 16. Shoot a tank with a pistol 17. Run into tank 18 Spamming grenades 19. Banzai charge into a flamethrower 20. Banzai charging into a grenade 21. Banzaiing by yourself (It sometimes works when you want to surprise your enemy... with a happy birthday party ambush)
Things to Do as a Soldier
These are the things that can help your teammate out and help you live a little longer. By meaning of a little longer I mean several more seconds.
Things to Do
1. Resupply your Machine Gunner even if he/she doesn't need any ammo yet 2. Use cover 3. Peek from cover 4. Shooting enemies 5. Shooting accurately 6. Give positive feedback 7. Give negative feedback to the enemy (But don't jinx yourself) 8. Sticking together 9. Have leadership 10. Give a player your weapon you don't need 11. Say your sorry if you team kill someone 12. Having the balls to forgive someone by typing "np" 13. Use grenades when needed 14. Plant booby traps if your in Rising Storm 15. Try to shoot down recon planes 16. Play dead 17. Be dead 18. Pretend your dead but you have a grenade in your hand (you know what to do) 19. Banzai together as a group 20. Give cover fire when a person throws a satchel. 21. Give suppressing fire 22. Make friends with the enemy (Im serious) 23. Throw a grenade through the window correctly 24. Cook your grenade before you throw 25. Read a book 26. Write a book 27. Book a holiday for your book
Picture this: You are a Japanese soldier in a bunker with four of your best buds fighting with you. But then you see an american soldier toss a grenade into your bunker and he ran away. Now your first reaction is either "RUN" or you could be typing "Grenade!" but its too late. You and your best friends legs and arms just got blown up. Now you can kiss your pooper goodbye!
Now stop, lets rewind a bit. Why don't we go to the part where the american throws the grenade into the bunker? Now I want you to change your mindset to instead of running, go prone onto the grenade. That would make you say, " BUT ASIAN, WOULDN'T THAT KILL ME?" Yes and shut your faces.
You will face that consequence but you are a hero that way. If you do this, you will save a lot of lives in the battlefield and your buddies will thank you!
The main point is that if you see a timed grenade in this tight environment like this picture:
You need to sacrifice yourself in order to help your team.
For you americans playing out there! If you position yourself right, you can diffuse the Japanese booby traps! I doubt it if you have the time but if you are proned next to the grenade, you will save a life.
Satchel tricks (Red wire or Blue wire?)
The more you know! Yes, as we all know these buggers make twice the boom boom as a normal grenade. It destroys certain objectives and is a panicer.
But, what if you are protecting a destroyable point? That wouldn't be fun now would it? Some players do not know that can be a life saver is to go to the satchel and press the control (Ctrl) button. It usually works on american satchels but never on those Japanese mines. When you see a mine, either run as fast as you can or die miserbly.
Now, with the help of my friend named "=BSG9=SpixTalon" He has sacrificed his life in countless occasions to prove this to me. Satchels can NOT be diffused in Red Orchestra 2.
Reload Timing (No pictures)
I would think this would be important because timing is crucial in this type of gameplay and if you reload in the wrong time, you die! So, I will list how many seconds it takes for each weapon to reload.
Light Machine Guns (Belt Fed) Belt used= 7 seconds
Pistols With cocking= 4 seconds Without cocking= 3 seconds
Submachine Guns (Pacific Theater) With cocking= 3-4 seconds Without cocking= 2-3 seconds
Semi/auto rifles (Pacific Theater) Auto Rifles= 3 seconds Semi Auto Rifles= 3-4 seconds
Knee Mortar Each reload= 4.5 seconds
Flamerthrower Fuel capacity= 12 seconds
Japanese Heavy Machine Gun (Type 92) Each reload= 3 seconds
American Heavy Machine Gun (Browning M1917) Box Mag. reload= 10 seconds
Semi/auto rifles (European Conquest) Semi Auto Rifles= 4&6 seconds Auto Rifles= 6 seconds
Submachine guns (European Conquest) One magazine= 3 seconds Two magazine in one gun= 6 seconds Drum magazine= 5 seconds
Assault Weapons Each reload= 4 seconds
Anti-Tank Rifles Each clip= 6.5 seconds
German Heavy Machine Gun (MG34) Belt used= 6 seconds
Russian Heavy Machine Gun (Vickers/ Maxim M1910) Belt used= 5 seconds
Close Quarter Combat
As you all know, all players have encountered a close combat situation like this before such as this video.
That was from "Saving Private Ryan" so please don't diss me on this. Going to the subject, usually when you encounter an enemy and you run out of ammo, you usually reload your primary weapon. DO NOT DO THAT! Instead, if you get into that situation of running out of ammo, I would reccomend to literally droping your weapon (Backspace button) and either 1. Switch to your second primary weapon. Or 2. Switch to your pistol.
If there is a chance that you ran out of pistol or your second primary ammunition, and your enemy is reloading, try charging at the enemy. Charging at the enemy gives him/her very frantic mindset, making it difficult to cooperate in a short time which is beneficial for you.
Last few tricks
These are the things that a soldier can do and help your score. What I found out is that the "Light Mortar" class gives great benefits to you. One, is that when your Commander calls out some "arty" you get an assist point every kill the commander gets. Try that sometime!
Now another thing, for every soldier of any rank should know... hiding.
Hiding is beneficial to your survival. Use foxholes, corners, dark alleyways, smoke, etc. You may call it camping but this is realism, you need to camp. Living is camping and camping is living.
One last tip, one thing never, NEVER DO! Is to use a stationary machine gun when there is a lot of dead people next to it. Most likely there is a guy sniping that spot like this picture under me.
I swear to god people can be stupid if they wander around clueless from their surroundings. Just please, don't be "that guy."
Also, to be a pro player, if the enemy 70-200 meters away, take your time. A lot of people reccomend having manual firing for faster fire rate but I disagree. Make your shots count. Not saying fast is bad but be efficient. OPTIONAL: Make your weapon burst fire or semi auto if you have a BAR or a sub machine guns! (Press the 6 key)
Last thoughts and Thank you!
If you read my guide, I would like to say thank you and the friends that helped me out. If you want to meet them, I have them as contributors so smash that friend request button! If there is anything you want to put in the guide, insert your thoughts in the comment section.
Like if you want, I don't care. All I care about is that you learned something! Like if you hate rambo COD players!
