Each vehicle has its own unique characteristics, but here are some general tips on how to use vehicles effectively.

Duck – just duck!

Driving straight into combat can be dangerous, make sure to keep your head down. You can duck in any vehicle by using ‘ctrl’ (default key).


Man the gun

Don’t feel very safe on your current position in the vehicle? You can use ‘C’ (default key) to change seats inside the vehicle. You can man the gunner seat or take the passenger seat to be less exposed to the enemy.


Armoured Personnel Carrier is more than just wheels

The Armoured Personnel Carrier is more then just a transport vehicle. The APC is best used to flank your opponent and park it behind them. Players will always be able to deploy in the APC as long as the vehicle belongs to the original vehicle owner.


Wrench the bench

Did your vehicle get heavily damaged? Just like tanks you can also use a wrench on any other vehicle. If you want to survive longer in your vehicle, make sure to keep it repaired.


Make use of supply crates

With the exception of some motorcycles, all vehicles have the ability to carry one or two supply crates. This way you can carry an ammunition, health or panzerfaust crate on your vehicle for everyone to use. This can come very handy in battle.
