  • Question on Covering doors in a point hold

    Question:

    I was looking at the tactics SOP by SUIT here that was posted in another thread...

    I saw the section on not being in the doorway, not stepping out without doing a sweep... Avoiding the angles around the door way...

    But then how DO you cover a door?

    Do you stay back 10m and aim at it while crouched?
    Do you stay Aiming down sights without moving? But yet game advice says to always move? ADADAD?

    How do you avoid grenades if you are so close to door?

    Multiple angles from cover at a safe distance while staying in and out of aim down sights. Also, most of the time in game you'll be covering a door with allied support so that can help greatly. Last, Flak armor Flak armor Flak armor and medics. You should never be moving that much when defending unless you're ordered to or you notice a hole. Both should be communicated.

      Definitely stay away from the door. In the door, you're in the "fatal funnel", where anyone looking at the door from either side will see you silhouetted within the doorway. That means every enemy at every angle can see you, and every teammate trying to cover that door can't see through you!

      Cover from a distance away. This minimizes the number of angles from the other side of the door that you're exposed to, and in turn reduces the amount of ground you need to watch. What's more, any enemy attempting to push through the door is now themselves moving through the fatal funnel, where their position is known and easily watched but their attackers might be coming from any number of angles.

      Have your sights up and focus on your door; trust your teammates to cover the other entrances. Place your crosshairs where you expect your enemy to be (in particular at a height where you can more easily score a headshot).

      Your individual survival might well be increased if you're moving, but you might be getting in the way of teammate fields of fire if you do so! When in an organized room hold, you'll want to make sure any strafing you do wont put you in front of someone else. If you're in front, crouch so that anyone behind you can shoot over you.

        Yeah when you are a ways back from the door, in a sort of semi-circle, now all those guns are able to shoot at the door, instead of just that one guy who's standing in the door. Exceptions to this might be a BioLab or other CQC environment where a Max suit or two are acting as an actual door in a defense situation. But even then, if they have the forethought to crouch, everyone could shoot over them.

        Also, ADAD strafing is considered my many people (outside of TG) to be the superior way to engage in combat, but from our perspective it's cheezy and probably violates The Primer.

          Yup, good info here. Doorway may also (should?) be mined (both AI and AT), so you don't want to be too close. One other thing: if someone is crouched and you are behind them and shooting over them, warn them not to stand up.
