STG Only for Close Range

Generally, you want to keep the fights at medium ranges. However, if you do plan to push closer than the STG is the best weapon as it has a very fast rate of fire but high recoil. Other Assault Rifles are better kept behind the frontline.

Finishing Off Enemies

If you do not want to stay behind cover then the Erma SMG could also work for you since it has a good rate of fire along with decent damage.

Make sure that you are comfortable with the weapon before you start using it because the damage fall-off at long ranges could significantly impact your firefights.

Best Explosive

Although the Panzer Faust can be a good tool to take down tanks from afar, the Sticky Dynamite is your best explosive resource that you have at your disposal.

Simply attach it to a tank and then watch it perish to nothing, leaving all the drivers and the riders with nothing to protect them.

Combat Roles

At the launch of the game, there are two combat roles for you. Remember that more roles will be added through DLCs.

Light Infantry
This role is available to you by default and it allows you to scavenge ammunition from fallen soldiers. Apart from that, it also allows you to regain more health through the health-regen system than other soldiers.

Vehicle Buster
The Vehicle Buster combat role is unlocked once you are at Level 8 and it allows you to shoot down vehicles.

The role allows your teammates to see where the vehicles are once you fire at those aforementioned vehicles. You also earn more Requisition Points when you destroy the vehicles yourself.
