Posted by Zuthus on Jan 01 2011 11:12 AM
Here's a tutorial of the different classes of Enemy Territory

In ET there are 5 classes to choose from. Each has a number of weapons and special abilities, some of which make them essential in any team that wants to win. The 5 classes available are:


Engineers can install and remove dynamite, mines, explosive charges enemy, build things and repair weapons and vehicles. Almost all targets in ET require the skills of an engineer.
Engineers can choose between two two-handed weapons. Allies can choose between the Thompson and Garand Rifle. The Axis can choose between the MP40 and the K43 rifle. K43 Rifle and the Grand rifle have a grenade launcher. To load grenades press the alternate fire button, and then shoot. The grenades used by the grenade launchers and hand grenades are independent.

Weapons and special items

Engineer's Tool

To use, press and hold down the key or button that you assigned to the shooting. Holding it down you'll see a blue bar growing under the icon of the pliers. When the bar disappears it means you've finished.

the button you asigned to the shooting, a bar will appear and you have to wait until the bar is completed.


Are selected by pressing "7." The mines are placed in the same way that dynamite. Once you've armed the mine you and your friends will see a flag indicating the position of the mine on the floor. The mines can not be placed on hard surfaces. The mines will damage the enemy when he walks over the mine and the mine fires. There are three types of mine: ''S'' , ''M'' and the Poison Gas mine.

Special Skills

Field Ops

Field Ops are responsable for the supply of ammunition for his team and heavy fire support.
You see a lot of people call Lieutenants. This is because in the original game (Return to Castle Wolfenstein and RTCW) this class was called so.
The Field Ops can distribute ammo packs his teammates, allowing them to continue fighting when they ran their initial rounds of ammunition. They are also capable call Air Strikes by throwing a can of smoke and they're capable of calling artillery strikes on distant targets using their binoculars.

Weapons and special items

Air Strikes and Artillery Support

Choose smoke pot with "5" key. Throw it to where you want the air strike to be and see how it starts to smoke the color of your computer. Using this skill completely consume the energy bar of Field Ops. Since the attack is made from a plane and the smoke is the visual cue that allows the pilot to know where to drop bombs, you can not use the air strike in covered areas. Throw the smoke canisters always outdoors. When the plane's pilot locate the smoke will give you a notice informing you that radio is ready. If you can not see the smoke because something covers it will alert you that you can not make the passing game. Keep in mind this so jump attacks more effective. The Air Strikes can damage you, but not your teammates. They will just ''fly'' because of the impact. Smoke pot will explode after 5 seconds, causing an effect similar to a hand grenade, if the Air Strike it's not available. Air attacks can be blocked by any player. If you get reminded that the smoking pot will explode, you should go away. To call Artillery Support you have to use your binoculars and press the shoot button. The difference between Air Strikes and Artillery Support is that Air Strikes is done once and Artillery Support multiple times. Air Strikes and Artillery Support can't be called by 2 players at the same time in the same team.
