Retreating


Retreating is one of the most useful abilities in the game. If one of your squad is in a difficult situation (For example under MG42 fire, outnumbered or near dead) you can press the "T" button to retreat them back to the HQ. They will benefit extra bonus defense and run faster. This is also usefull when you want to get back quickly at your base.

Use this ability to escape from a tough situation or get your troops back to base in a hurry. Your units receive a sizeable defense bonus, but take note that they are not immune. Units such as Snipers are still quite vulnerable, so be careful of the path units will take when reatreating to your base. Remember that pinned units are almost completely useless, and it is usually best to retreat them to minimize casualties.

Smart use of the Retreat ability can save you a lot of money on reinforcements and new units throughout the course of the game.

Can you get your units to retreat to a forward HQ instead of your main HQ.

The only way to retreat back to another hq is if you are a british and your HQ is mobile, there is no other way but to go back to your hq, this is the only way.
