Upgraded Infantry


When you upgrade your units with automatic weapons (bars, MP40's etc) get your units close to your enemies infantry, they are much more effective at close range, since half of their shots from a longer range will probably miss.

It is much more effective to charge your upgraded infantry towards the enemy due to their upgraded submachine gun weapons.

Not always true. LMG42 grenadiers, for example, are units you do NOT want to charge with.

I have to agree spoon, this mainly applies to volks, and I think BARs are good close, but not super close.

I have to agree, the rush is one of my favorite things to do w/ MP-40'ed Volks.

Also don't forget to use riflemen supression fire ability. That really pinned down enemy troops. Usefull for escaping also... and lobbing a grenade at them while pinned. Only if you have enough munition points to waste tho...

laugh.gif I wouldnt class the BAR as a SMG.

I think there most affective at mid-range. They do good damage and volks will miss at mid-range with there MP40s and by the time they get close the BARs will have destroyed them.

If you ever doubt the effectiveness of grenadiers, try them out vs the AI in some skirmishes. The amount of incredible firepower a few grenadier squads can do (when veterned up) is a sight to behold. Alot of people also forget that throwing some grenadiers with zhek's in bunkers provides a pretty nasty anti vehicle emplacement.

I prefer Stormtroopers to Grenadiers, because I don't have to slow down my teching to build a Krieg Barracks.
