Hell Let Loose, Tips Strategy
Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game.
Prevent Friendly Fire
Hell Let Loose takes realism seriously, and as such it is oftentimes difficult to determine friend from foe during battles. This can lead to instances of friendly fire where you accidentally end up killing members of your own team, which can severely impact how your squad performs. There is a way however to adjust the settings of the game, so you can distinguish your teammates from afar. Simply go to 'Settings' and move the friendly icons setting to 500m.
Choosing a Class for Beginners
If you are not familiar with Hell Let Loose, it is recommended that you start out by choosing the Rifleman class. Every other class in the game is quite complex in comparison. The Rifleman class starts you off with a decent weapon and also allows you to focus on learning the basics. If you choose the Rifleman class and begin the game by simply following the orders of your more experienced teammates until you get the hang of things, you should be fine. There are three types of classes in the game. Infantry is the boots on the ground soldiers that consist of squads of six. Armor divisions are three-man squads that focus on using tanks. Recon are pairs of spotters and snipers that attack from range. Below are the three classes along with the specific roles each one has.
Hell Let Loose is unlike other arcade-style shooters like Call Of Duty, where it is not necessary to communicate with your squad. In this game it is essential that you participate in comms to provide teammates in your squad with vital information, such as enemy positions, that will help you all to stay alive. Just listening to what others are saying and following instructions without participating in voice chat will put the whole squad at a disadvantage.
Aim for the Head
Although you can take players down with a single body shot, it is recommended that when you begin playing Hell Let Loose you spend time working on your aim, so you get your headshots down as soon as possible as a shot between the eyes guarantees the enemy is dead and cannot be revived by a medic.
Stay Behind Cover
Always stay behind cover whenever it is available, as combat in Hell Let Loose is unforgiving. A crucial skill you need to work on is peeking and popping out of your cover at the right time. Get it wrong, and you will likely end up with a bullet in your head.
Pay Attention to Resources and Nodes
It is important that you pay attention to your Commander's Resources and the number of Nodes that are on the field. There are 3 different types of resources in Hell Let Loose - Munitions, Manpower and Fuel. You can see how many resources your team currently has by looking at the top of the map. You will also be able to see how many more resources you will get every 60 seconds. If you are low on both Resources and Nodes, be willing to change to an Engineer and start building. Without resources, there is no support from Command. Without that, you are putting yourself at a disadvantage.
Always Follow Orders
Listen to the Commander and your Squad Leaders and offer suggestions and possible strategies, but most importantly it is crucial that you follow the orders you are given otherwise you could mess up an entire plan which will lead to a series of defeats. Don't get discouraged if a plan starts to fall apart, if you are prepared to be adaptable you can rebound by trying something new.
