The real-time strategy game Company of Heroes 3 is finally out, and these tips will help new players get started on the right foot.
The newest game in the Company of Heroes series is here, and it’s even more amazing, intense, and dramatic than the ones that came before it. During World War II, the game focuses on the Italian and North African campaigns. Players will be in charge of an army made up of infantry, vehicles, and air support to fight over resources on a variety of interesting and changing maps.
For new players, it can be hard to know how to approach these big battles and how to use the different features of Company of Heroes 3, which aren’t always as clear and easy to find as they could be. The following tips will help players get off to a better start on the battlefield and turn crushing losses into decisive wins.
Always Use Cover
The accuracy of troops is one thing that makes Company of Heroes 3 different from its predecessors. In an even firefight, leaving units exposed and without cover is a sure way to lose. And any cover is better than none. Infantry units will be best protected by buildings. Followed by any cover marked with green squares when the mouse is over it (with troops selected).
Yellow squares show less cover, while white squares show no cover at all. If there is no cover, engineer squads can build sandbags and fighting positions, but this will take some time. After it’s built, any unit can use it, even if the engineer squad is killed. But keep in mind that units in cover are more likely to be hurt by fire and explosions. So watch out for enemy flamethrowers and Flammpanzer tanks!
Use Tactical Pause
When playing Company of Heroes 3 in single-player mode, you can pause the game by pressing the spacebar. You will still be able to see the battlefield and give commands. This is especially important in shorter games with fewer victory points, because positioning, building. And strengthening at the right time can be the difference between winning and losing.
Using this COH3 feature can give players valuable time to figure out how the battlefield is set up and avoid making mistakes. This will also give newer players time to read about the pros and cons of each Unit, Ability, Upgrade. And Battlegroup before putting them into production and sending them to the field.
Capture Points Immediately
In any battle, it is very important to try to take strategic points as soon as possible. In Slope Game, there are different kinds of points. The first kind is victory points, which are shown on the map by a star that turns red or blue. Depending on whether the player or the enemy is in it.
There are also a number of other points that can be taken over to gain resources. With these points, you can start making either munitions or fuel, which are two types of in-game money. Munitions will make it possible to make more units, but fuel will also be needed to make vehicles like tanks.
Fuel is usually harder to come by, which makes getting fuel points even more important. Keep in mind that the captured points will need to be linked in order to send resources back to the HQ. If the supply chain breaks, the isolated capture points won’t be able to give you any resources.
Construct New Buildings As Soon As Possible
From the headquarters building, you can build more buildings by choosing them from the panel to the right of the regular units in the bottom-right corner of the screen. In Company of Heroes 3, these buildings will let you build more units and give you access to special skills and upgrades. With the first type of building, more advanced infantry units and weapon groups, like mortar teams and anti-tank guns, can be made.
The second type will usually let you make snipers and other specialized infantry, as well as some light vehicles. The third type will let you make heavy vehicles like tanks. Depending on which faction you choose, these buildings and what they can make are a little different. This means that some factions will be able to get certain types of vehicles sooner than others.
Build Resource Caches
When a capture point is controlled by friendly forces, engineers can be sent to build Resource Caches around the flagpole. These will give you more resources and slow down the rate at which you can capture these points. Because you have to destroy the resource cache before you can capture its point.
If a capture point is safe and inside friendly territory. It is a good idea to use it by building the resource cache wherever possible.
Use The Retreat/Reinforce Options
When a unit is chosen, a list of commands will appear in panels on the lower right side of the user interface. One of these options is “Retreat,” which sends units running back to their base without caring about where they are hiding.
When this mode is on, units take a lot less damage than. When they are moving normally or fighting from light cover. If a unit survives a retreat and goes back to its base. It can be strengthened and its XP will still be there. This can be much more useful and save a lot more time than training new units, and it will help you get Veterancy bonuses.
Reverse Vehicles Out Of Danger
In Company of Heroes 3, if you attack a vehicle from the side or back, you will do more damage to it. Side hits are new and make it even more important to know where your mechanized troops are when setting them up. Infantry units can destroy even the most powerful tanks if they are facing the wrong way.
The “Retreat” function for infantry units is similar to the “Reverse” function for vehicles. Which PC players can use by pressing the “R” hotkey. This will tell units to immediately stop fighting and start moving back from dangerous places. This will protect the side and back armor.
At the start of each battle, a list of “Battlegroups” that are available will show up on the right side of the screen. These can be anything from air support and passive abilities to elite infantry and vehicles. These units can be sent to any spot on the battlefield, and some of them, like the Gurkhaz and the US Airborne, are very important in history.
Each faction will have a variety of Battlegroups to choose from. So the best ones will depend on how each player likes to play. Units and skills from these Battlegroups will need to be unlocked through a sort of skill tree. And each one will cost Command Points to buy. Command points are earned based on how much experience your army as a whole has. This means that they will be hard to get at first. But they will become easier to get as the game goes on.
You can play Company of Heroes 3 on a PC.
