The Command Vehicle is the unit used by the Commander to lead the team. Whoever enters the Command Vehicle assumes the rule of Commander. Press F2 while in the command vehicle to enter RTS mode. Destruction of the Command Vehicle results in a loss for the team whose CV is destroyed. For this reason, it is important to keep it protected and under watch at all times.

Warning  Warning: The Command Vehicle is not to be used in combat. New players would be recommended to stay away from it until they have a complete grasp of how the game works. Hijacking this vehicle with no intention of becoming commander is highly frowned upon.

Tips

  • While it is often useful to fortify some areas for the Command Vehicle to hide behind, it is usually a bad idea to completely encircle a CV in walls.
  • Try to avoid dangerous manoeuvres when driving the Command Vehicle. Sinking the CV in deep waters, driving it off high enough cliffs or flipping it over (accidentally or otherwise) will cause the CV to quickly destroy itself.
  • Avoid placing the Command Vehicle in wide open spaces without defense against infantry, as a rogue grenadier can easily take it down by placing mines around it. One or two well-placed mines may even flip the Command Vehicle onto its back, scoring an easy victory for your opponent.
  • While the CV doesn't feature any weapons, you can easily run over and crush enemy infantry.
