There are a number of structures that can be placed by Commanders, each having its own purpose. See the links below for details on each type of building.

Engineers can place a limited number of these structures, as well as the Commander.

This building is not in the game yet, but will be put in a later release.


Building Structures

Building is generally organized by the Commander. Through the Commander Interface, buildings are placed on the map within range of other friendly buildings or a friendly soldier. An un-constructed shell sits on the map (represented by a yellow square on your mini-map) waiting for infantry to build it. Any class can assist building by holding their USE key, but the Engineer is best suited for construction.

Engineers use their Engineering Tool by getting close to the building needing construction and "firing" at it. A yellow construction bar will fill up as the building nears completion, finally turning green once done. See the Engineer page for more detailed information on Engineering and the Engineering Tool.

Repairing Structures

Repairing structures is done exactly the same from the Engineer's point of view. This involves approaching the building in question and using the Engineering Tool on it. Structures can only be repaired by the Engineer class.

Attacking Structures

Structures can be damaged by weapons fire or by de-construction. An Engineer may use his Engineering Tool on an enemy structure from close proximity, causing the health meter to go down as the object is de-constructed. Once the health bar of a building reaches zero, it will be destroyed. It is then useless, but will remain on the field for several moments before disappearing.
