Close Quarter Combat is inevitable in Control Points – here are five tips on creating a Close-Quarter Infantry soldier.
Sub-Machine Guns & Assault Rifles are your new best friends
Each type of weapon has unique advantages and disadvantages. The SMG’s and AR’s are most effective at close range while being able to move. With their larger ammo count and their often fast rate of fire they are capable of taking care of an enemy swiftly.
Explosives are effective
Explosives can be very effective to use – Grenades can help you clear rooms so you don’t have to engage with your opponent face to face. Also anti-personnel mines allow you to protect your back, they will trigger as soon someone walks over it.
Melee Combat can be silent but deadly
If you need a swift approach or don’t want players to know where you are, melee combat will help you out. With little sound they are effective at taking care of your opponent without anyone noticing. Knives, shovel or even the wrench can all be used for a silent kill.
You might need some wheels
Fighting in close quarters means you have to get into the combat zone quickly. All vehicles are suited for this, but keep an eye out for Halftracks and Cargo Trucks, which can be used to deploy in, so you’re at the frontline without risking exposure to the opponents between your objective and the opponents objective.
Consider using modifications
There are many different types of modifications possible. For a close range infantry it’s recommended to focus on damage and rate of fire. However, be careful, because you’ll sacrifice a lot of precision, stability and range.
