  • Being Spec Ops

    Spec Ops is one of the more...difficult classes to work with, as you got no body armor and your special weapon is melee range, you are no rusher nor a heavily armored support, but still a key asset!

    Below some tips and bladiebla:

    As a soldier:

    1: Whilst you indeed have no body armor and your guns damage is relative low, the accuracy makes up greatly, the red dot scope is really usefull when it comes to zeroing in, dont be afraid to lie down and shoot.

    2: No body armor means more run speed which is good as it means you are much more mobile on the field. Cant seem to kill that guy? Run around him and shoot him the back.

    3: Since accuracy will often garantuee a couple of hits, should you run out of ammo, dont run just yet, fire your pistol at him first, its often that last shot that does it.

    4: Whilst your rifle is effective at medium and long ranges, you are no rusher, rushing in will only get you killed, go prone, crawl around that corner and pick them off instead.

    C4:

    5: By far, C4 is what makes the Spec Ops the Spec Ops PERIOD! C4 has a kill range of about 6 or 7m and will still do a lot of damage to infantry within 10m.

    6: There is an annoying bug with C4, namely if you throw a pack, and you throw another quickly there is a chance that when you hit the detonator, it will lay another pack, this sucks but a little patience should remedy this.

    7: Any tank, car or asset will be destroyed by 2 packs, some by 1, so dont go throwing C4 like crazy, slap those 2 packs and run for cover.

    8: Especially with cars, APC's and tanks rushing it with C4 jumping aint the way to go, you'll just die on the spot. You need to pay very close attention to the turret of the enemy vehicle and your run speed amount and most importantly the distance between you and your target. A close range target can be taken out more easily as running, going prone and slapping on C4 takes less time, but further targets need tactics.
    Wait for the turret to face the opposite direction that you are and then run for it, when you get close to the target GO PRONE! Otherwise you'll be gunned down easily. Slap 2 packs and look up, if you see a barrel DONT MOVE, wait for the barrel to move away and run like hell.

    9: C4 can also ofcourse be used defensively, the top notch spots I always use are spots you cant see from the point the vehicle is coming from. If a car is north and heading south, place C4 on the south side of a tree, when the car's front gets to the tree hit the trigger.

    10: Know where to place C4, dark spots, bushes, trees boxes, holes or even under empty vehicles are spots where no-one looks, just dont keep using the same one over and over again.

    11: A very unknown spot is to lay C4 under an empty vehicle, say a Vodnik, when say...a tank rolls by, it will ignore the car and you can hit that trigger.

    12: Watch out for your teammates, if its a narrow alley or close range combat C4 will only kill your teammates, also watch it when hitting the trigger if C4 is on a tank, wait for the tank to clear your teammates.

    13: Slapping on C4 on a moving vehicle has good points and bad, the good is that they are on the move, so they have a far harder time gunning you down, the bad is you have to time throwing the C4 just right without gettin run over, staying just behind a tree will do miracles.

    14: All assets go down with 2 C4 packs, including UAV, sometimes an asset will have a tenth of a bar left, DONT USE ANOTHER PACK, 1 or 2 grenades will finish it off easily.

    15: Using C4 on a flag as defense needs to be thought over, just throwing it all over the place will leave you with a trigger and a friendly flag covered in your C4, often just 1 or 2 packs cleverly disquised is all you need, think about placing it on the ceiling, behind a corner, between boxes etc.

    16: You can throw-jump C4, but this will often get you the detonator bug.

    17: Got a guy chasing you and you are almost dead? Run around a corner, on your side of that corner lay a pack and wait for him to cross it and hit the detonator. Same applies to holes in fences.

    18: C4 is the only thing you can trigger in the game, you dont always have to blow when you throw it, placing it on a bridge with good timing can get a whole squad down with the bridge as well.

    19: If there is a lot of armor on a flag, throw 3 packs in the middle of it all and blow it, 3 packs will kill most armor at good range and still leave you with 2 packs.

    20: The best thing that works against 2 tanks repairing each other is C4, while your team is keep them busy, slap C4 on both if possible and run like hell.

    21: The only good rushing that a spec ops can do is to run into a large group of enemy at close quarter combat, when you are in the middle of the group drop a pack and keep running and then blow it, this can get a lot of kills.

    22: C4 in combination with smoke grenades is the fear of all armor, if you got an assault in your squad, coordinate your attack.

    OTHER

    23: The main difference between the guns is USMC/China VS MEC:

    The MEC gun does more damage (27) but has less accuracy, this does help at city maps though.
    The USMC/Chinese guns do less damage (25) but have more accuracy.

    24: Next to AT, you are the best defense against armor, think about this if you are gettin rushed by armor from the same road over and over.

    25: Whilst you got a rifle, you only have 4 clips, dont be afraid to use your knife and pistol more often, especially when it comes to getting someone in the back. Remember, a knife is silent...

    UNLOCK:

    The G36C and SCAR-L are like the M4 and AK47U when it comes to differences, the G36C has great accuracy and is a real killer as a lot of shots will always hit.

    The SCAR-L does more damage then the G36C and loses very little accuracy at single shot, it loses more accuracy when it comes to firing whole clips.

    Remember, you do have a rifle, but your not an assault, C4 will always be your real weapon!

    good post (+rep)

    this point is arguable however:

    While C4 has lots of advantages over AT-mines, AT-mines DO have two big advantages:

    1) You don't have to baby-sit them... they're smart enough to blow up at the right time ;)

    2) You don't have to be alive for them to work...

    ok.. three..
    3) AT-mines aren't used enough for attacking armor when it's capping a flag or camped outside a building (wearhouse, e.g.). Sneak around and plop a mine inline w/ the armor, and you've got a 90% chance of killing it... (as any good tanker knows, 'keep moving')... the nice thing here is that you don't have to stop to drop the mine, and you only need one instead of 2 c4's... AND even if the tank sees you and kills you... well - see point 2.

      True enough :) But this is ofcourse about C4, and mines are more prone to teamkilling. Often on a flag if you drop a mine on a tank that is trying to cap it a teammate will go with it most of the time.

        This is the thing I hate most about using C4. I always seem to get caught by this and either blow myself up, or blow nothing up. Alas, it IS something we have to live with.

        On another note, good writeup.

          I have it in increasing amount as well, I tried my best at seeing if I can get this to happen in singleplayer but no luck, in singleplayer it works fine, weird, and extremely annoying as it often means you cant blow the C4 as you will take half your squad with you.

            the silenced pistol is one of the greatest tools the snipers and spec ops have in their kits. Find yourself alone and waiting for the rest of your squad to respawn and hump it back? find a good perch and start shooting with the pistol. No sound leaves the victim(s) with little idea about where you are shooting from. It also becomes great comedy seeing them spin around trying to figure what's going on as you continue to drop their health bit by bit.
