Call of Duty WW2 beta players looking to improve their Kill/death ratio should check out Sledgehammer’s brand new survival guide.
With PS4 and Xbox One players getting some practice in ahead of the Call of Duty WW2 release date, Sledgehammer has posted some useful tips and tricks.
Players are encouraged to spend time with the different weapons on offer, using the beta as an opportunity to test various loadouts.
Sledgehammer also talks about the importance of communicating with teammates, especially in War Mode, where strategy is key.
“For instance, if you push forward enough as the attacking team, you’ll have the opportunity to hop behind a machine gun mounted on the turret of a tank,” the post reads.
“This makes you a sitting duck for the enemy, who will easily know someone is in that turret when they hear its distinctive chatter.
“However, the tradeoff is that it gives you a powerful weapon that can mow down the enemy. So do you go for the firepower? Or do you flank the enemy while they try and stop the tank?”
Sledgehammer also discusses divisions and their specialist skills, recommending that players try the default weapons before unlocking and equipping new ones.
Elsewhere, Basic Training is compared to a perk slot, giving characters specific boosts that will aid them in battle.
“These Basic Trainings range from Forage, which allows you to resupply bullets from killed enemies, to Gunslinger, which allows you to fire weapons while sprinting and diving.
“You’ll earn more Basic Training choices as you level up and unlock them, so take some time to experiment with each one and figure out what you like the most.”
Secondary weapons, on the other hand, are typically made up of pistols, including the 1911 pistol that’s unlocked at level 25.
The post continues: “Rounding out your Division will be grenades, which depending on what Division you choose, you’ll have a choice of lethal grenades, tactical grenades, or both.
“For lethal grenades, you have the standard frag grenade, or you can unlock the N° 74 ST sticky grenade, a weapon that has a slightly smaller blast radius in exchange for a shorter fuse and the ability to stick onto enemies and equipment.
“There is also the S-MINE, an unlockable trip mine that provides a nasty surprise to any enemy who isn’t aware of where it is placed on the map. As for tactical grenades, you can unlock a smoke grenade that obscures the mini-map for anyone caught inside, or stick with the old reliable concussion grenade that will daze enemies for 2-4 seconds, depending on how close they are to the explosion.”
Beta players can also choose three Scorestreaks from a selection of six. This includes the Recon Plane, the Glide Bomb and an Artillery Barrage that fires on a chosen location.
“Through levelling up and unlock tokens, you can also use Molotov Cocktails, a fire bomb that can restrict an area; the Care Package, which will contain a random Scorestreak in the Beta; a Fighter Pilot, which swoops down in a determined location and allows you to open fire from the gunner seat; and Paratroopers, AI infantry units that can help in the fight against the enemy.”
Ending on September 4, the Call of Duty WW2 beta will be followed by the full game, which has a November 3 release date.
