Playing Modern Tactics
- What is Modern Tactics?
Modern Tactics is a Tactical Role Playing Game, where two teams take turns controlling their squad to satisfy the objective. Most common objective is to eliminate the other team. As you complete levels your soldiers will rank up and new weapons might be unlocked. You can then customize your squad on the squad page.
- How do I play?
Once in a game, you will see all your active soldiers will have a big blue square. Click on a soldier to select it. You can now command the soldier to move once and attack once. When finished click wait and continue until your turn is over. A good strategy is to not charge the enemy and always move your soldiers as one group.
- What are soldier ranks?
As your soldier eliminates enemies, it will gain points and can rank up with enough. Once your soldier reaches rank 3 he will be able to equip a side arm. More rank bonuses will be added later on. Max rank is currently 10.
- How do I get new weapons?
By winning levels there is a small chance to unlock a new weapon. Completing later levels of a game will unlock stronger weapons. Playing games with harder bots will increase your odds as well.
- What is that yellow square under my soldier?
When shooting a gun the yellow square means to reload the weapon.
- What are the differences between weapons?
There are 7 different types of weapons in Modern Tactics: Assault: Good shooting mid-range and far-range. Submachine: Good shooting close-range and medium-range. Machine: Good shooting any range with high ammo but lower damage. Shotgun: Good shooting close-range. Sniper: Good shooting far-range. Pistol: Backup weapon good mid-range. Rocket: Good mid-range and hits multiple units but lower ammo.
