  • Marking Things

    How do you mark like a spawn point so it appears as a boat ? And also how do you use the green smoke to mark something ?

    Re: Marking Things

    Use the commo rose to (Q) button to get a list of options to spot.
    Pick the boat option and left click.

    The Officer kit has the green smoke. Dunno how long the smoke lasts.

      Same time as regular smoke.

        when you hit Q, you only get the "Spotted" circle in the middle - you then need to right click the "Spotted" circle to get a list of specific things.

          And when right-clicking to spot, the boat is the middle option where the cursor rests, so it's very easy to use quickly.
          I always get a kick out of people calling out "enemy water craft!" on a completely landlocked map. :icon_lol:

              When I first started playing PR I was freaking and wondering WHY so many people were calling out enemy boat or watercraft spotted, I now know and do it myself quite a bit. I will call it out long before I start attacking it(that way in case I die they can know where it is) and also let the squad I am in know that it is being spotted out as a enemy boat, that way any new comers will know WHY I am doing this.

                it doesn't matter how many times i mark a boat, about 1 in 10 actually knows what it means. the worse though, is when you slam one, and a guy in your own squad runs up to the big red x with a skull and starts shooting it. that pretty much takes the cake, and tells me that i should prolly just log off and come back later.

                  I disagree, I would say that the majority of squad leaders on the TG server at that time would know what it means. And it's the squad leaders you're trying to tell.

                    It does seem to be a prevelant tactic. Personally, I say you can't beat green smoke, with a clear instruction that it marks the target OR that it marks the friendlies. If you're CO'ing, one of your functions is to clearly and concisely relay info between SL's.

                      Yeah I personally love the boat spotting tactic because all it takes is one person in another squad who knows what it means to relay it to the entire squad, and once they see that, it's not soon forgotten.

                      ANY tool that lets squads more effectively communicate (especially in the absence of a CO) can only help the team.

                        I think that the commorose needs to be altered to include the option for spotting an enemy rally point. Less guesswork when someone sights one and dies.

                          That would be a pretty good addition, especially if the voice message could be set up to say "spawn car" or "rally point" depending on what you were aiming at.
