  • Rules on Rockets

    I looked it up in the rules but I could not find any regarding rockets being used against infantry out in the open.
    Is it still LAT vs. Vehicles and Bunkers/Fortified Infantry and HAT vs Vehicles only?
    Have all rules regarding proper use of rockets been changed?

    An do static AT-missiles qualify as HAT?

    Anything can now be used against anything else. There was a rule change.

      Thanks for the fast reply, I started playing PR again yesterday and the last time I played there where strict rules on HAT sniping, playing on the server and seeing rockets being used as a primary anti infantry weapon kind of got me confused.

        Its frowned upon. If you can help it, dont HAT snipe.

        Last time I checked, (Before summer) HAT Sniping was legal, but HAT Spamming was controlled.

        IRL, SRAWs are used as building to building weapons. So infantry in my mind is A.Okay. (But bullets are better)

          Light ATs are usually a waste shot on bunkers/firebases unless you have a good ammo supply, Cause one shot aint gonna cut it. HATing INF is okey aslong as its not spammed, for an example on kashan - US forces camping on the hilltop HATing the mec forces on the ground.. I can find that a bit annoying/spammy but its not against the rules so.

            Yes, you can use H-AT and static TOW rockets against anything. But, spamming a H-AT is not allowed. Spamming being defined as. Standing near, or on ammo and constantly firing H-AT at infantry targets. You can sit in the mountains and fire H-AT constantly, as long as your hitting realistic targets, such as Armour and vehicles. But, as soon as the target becomes infantry, its spam.

            Skud made a gentlemens agreement a little while back. If you support using the H-AT in a realistic fashion, its a good thread to sign.

              Are you sure that is illegal? Can an admin confirm this? If the rule was effectively changed to a "free for all," I do not see why this should be illegal because it is not an exploit.

                To my understanding spamming H-AT goes against rule number 1.

                "1. Strive for realism

                Tactical Gamer promotes playing the game in as realistic manner as possible, with players utilizing military tactics to the best of their ability. The game should be played with the emphasis on teamwork and tactics, and players should avoid at all costs utilizing a feature of the game as an exploit to gain an advantage over their opponents. Use weapons and vehicles in as realistic manner as possible."

                I may be wrong.

                Using a costly weapon such as that and constantly firing it on infantry is not realistic, nor does it promote teamplay.

                    As it has been put forth, it's simply bad for gameplay, thus illegal. Think about kashan 16. The fight is over the bunkers, yet the USMC have 2 HAT and 5 LAT sitting up on the ridgeline spamming 7 shots down every 20 seconds. Imagine you are on MEC trying to make any kind of entrance to the bunkers, but cant because of constant spam.

                    That's why it's illegal.

                      How would you even get a strong enough heat signature for inf? Unless you put it on manual target..

                          Re: Rules on Rockets

                          I'd just like to clarify an urban myth that apears to crop up now and again in these thread about the use of anti tank weapons against infantry in real life. In real life most armies do not endorse the use of an extremely expensive weapon on single infantry in the open because you as an individual soldier failed basic rifleman training and cannot hit anything with your rifle.

                          Obviously how you were allowed to deploy in this untrained state and why a senior officer deemed it appropriate to to put this highly expensive piece of equipment in your incompetent hands remains a mystery. Do you see where I'm going with this.

                          Don't get me wrong, yes infantry units will use all weapons at their disposal in certain situations. Yes, they will use LAT and HAT equivalents against enemies in structures and other such buildings. No, they do not sit on a hill next to an ammo crate carefully aiming a $60 k one shot kill weapon on some taliban a short distance away because they can't be bothered or are not able to hit him with a rifle, the infantry man's primary weapon.

                          Not to mention the fact that I can only imagine in almost every army in the world you would need specific permission to equip, arm and fire this weapon (not so much LAT). Professional soldiers don't just run around discharging their weapons as they see fit. Units, platoons, individual soldiers have a combat load out of ammunition and it is not always clear when that will be resupplied. They and their officers are responsible for the effective management of that ammunition.

                          One last thing, can we just be very clear about this regardless of the rules, the reality is if YOU USE HAT VS INFANTRY IN PR YOU ARE A VERY POOR PLAYER. I see plenty of players I know well doing it and it irritates me a lot.
                          It detracts from the game, and to me personally, demonstrates that you lack the basic ability to fire your primary weapon correctly. As an infantry man you are an UTTER FAILURE. If I catch someone doing it in my squad I kick em and if it was blatant and spammy, they don't come back. This is not directed at you Steevo as you are very sensibly looking for clarification. If the tone of this post is a little terse it's because I still have a headache from the HAT spamming on Kashan recently lol.

                            Well said, Wickens. I like that the reasoning; if you have to use a HAT to kill infantry than you have failed your basic rifle training and shouldn't be using that HAT in the first point. Gonna use that in my squad.

                            Sometimes players might be concerned with keeping the HAT activitated and once they see infantry it is too tempting for them to use the HAT. That is why I prefer the LAT in my squad, or as SM. The rifle is then the primary weapon and you only need to take out the LAT a few seconds before shooting a vehicle.

                              HAT on infantry using cover is reasonable and that's how its used afaik. I hope they increase the firing time


                              If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.
