|Mount Weapon||ADS + Melee|
Mounting weapons to walls, ledges & crates is a new gameplay mechanic introduced to Multiplayer. This mechanic has several uses, and it is best to get the habit of mounting your weapon regularly.
Uses of Mounting Weapons
Mounting your weapon is a great way to get a sitrep on certain areas before proceeding. By exposing as little of yourself as possible, you can avoid getting riddled by bullets if there were enemies lurking in that area.
Safely Clear Corners
Another great use for mounting your weapon is to safely clear corners. SInce you are not entirely exposed, enemies will have a harder time hitting you, giving you the upper hand when engaging tangos from a corner!
Improve Weapon Stability
Having a weapon while mounted will also improve weapon stability and reduce the weapon's recoil when firing! This helps you keep you aim trained on targets when engaged in heated firefights!Check Out All Weapons Here!
Opening Doors Mechanic
|Open Door||Buttom Prompt|
|Burst Through Door||Sprint through Doorway|
|Peek Through Doors|
|ADS + Button Prompt|
These controls are based on prompts shown when doors are closed.
You will now have several options for opening doors when traversing through the map in different Multiplayer modes. The developers have taken the time to give your more tactical options when entering or leaving buildings.
Uses of Opening Doors
Burst Through When Rushing Enemies
You can quickly get through doors and burst down enemies while they are blinded by tactical grenades. In their disoriented state, you can rush through the doorway and kill them before they regain control!
Peek Through Doors To Scan Areas
Peeking through doors is a great way to scout an area just up ahead. Since this move can be done silently, you can use it in conjunction with your squadmates to surprise unsuspecting enemies in rooms! Also useful for tossing in grenades.
Pay Attention To Door Sounds
Opening doors makes a distinct sound that may provide intel on troop movements. Pay attention to them while looking out for the sound you make when interacting with doors.
Change Weapon Fire Modes
Switch Between Fire Modes Based On Situation
You can toggle fire modes of weapons by pressing B (by default), usually between semi and full auto. Some weapons may have distinct fire modes like burst fire, while some weapon may only have 1 fire mode. Going semi for targets father away can help conserve ammo.
Recoil Is Mostly The Same Between Full & Semi Auto
Quick-tapping with semi and going full auto has mostly the same recoil. There's no need to go semi in hopes that it'll have lower recoil.
Shooting On Ladders
Secondary Weapons Can Be Used On Ladders
While going up and down ladders, a player can still fire the secondary weapon (usually a handgun) if the player has one equipped. This gives you some self protection when moving up and down.
Cannot Reload While On Ladder
While you can shoot your secondary weapons on a ladder, you can't reload it while on a ladder. Get to solid ground to reload your secondary weapon.
Initiate Melee Finishing Attack From Behind
Sneak Up Behind Your Opponents And Finish Them!
When you get behind an opponent, you can gold the melee button to initiate a melee Finishing Attack that will take out your opponent after a cutscene. As it usually takes 3~4 melee hits to down an opponent, this will let you finish off enemies faster in a cool way.
