This guide will be an attempt to helping The F A community get more familiar with the game if they wish to play it coming from different games! If anyone has anything to add to this guide feel free to pm me and I will add anything too it! All of the following is my opinion from the game. So to start off here Insurgency is different then most typical shooters you see, the enemy's you face are cruel, very, oh so cruel, whether it's you hearing RPG! (BTW Duck. Run. Bob. Weave. Hope. You. Survive. Profit?) Getting knifed in the back from an unsuspected enemy, or the way they take different angles to find you; that is just touching on that subject btw. That being said teamwork is essential and a must. Communication in this game is great to have but it doesn't always have to be through a mic. Here you will find some great tips... -Press and hold C to bring up your commands without using a mic! This helps to give friendly's a good idea where the enemy is, which objective you are moving too etc... as a leader or (specialist) This is a MUST even if you use your mic. As the servers we have say beginners we attract a load of them and helping them figure out the game is key. Most of them don't chat vocally and with the leaders commands it opens up a whole new set of them. Such as flank right, flank left, defend this objective, and a whole lot more. To give new players a sense of direction coming from a leader in this game really helps them adjust and enjoy there gameplay experience while immersing them with having fun. - Use Q or E on your key board to lean around corners. It can be repetitive but it will save you a lot from dying. - While running (Hold shift. This can be put on toggle or hold, same as aiming in) press ctrl and you will slide. Anytime you find yourself making a last ditch effort to avoid enemy fire and your almost in cover, just use this quick tip and you will get out of it 9/10 times if used correctly. - Do not stick together after capturing, Stay in groups but try by all means to separate. Once you capture (Usually) in any game mode the enemy respawns somewhere. There squad leaders carry rpg's and they are not afraid to use them. If you're firing out of a window avoid staying there for too long. - Attachments can make or break you as a player depending on your class. Find what your comfortable with using and excel. Now it's different for everyone with what your favorite gun is or class etc, But ALWAYS if you can manage to spend your points use AP Ammo. If you play the game long enough you will notice AP Ammo which is armor piercing will work very efficiently, thus saving ammo. AP Ammo works very well with one shot high powered rifles from my experience, such as the L1A1, FAL, Etc. HP Ammo works well against flesh targets and does help if you can't afford your AP. Below that is your tracer rounds that don't cost anything to equip... So equip them if you can't get anything else!! This guide was only meant to be for NEW players that wish to try Insurgency! Since I've joined I've noticed a lot more F A in the servers. BTW I hope to keep seeing more. These tips are great for starting out but by all means there is a lot more to this game. This is only here to help some people out with getting some core concepts that wish to try the game. Hope to see you guys in game soon and if your new to it, which I hope this guide helped =)... Add me on steam and I will be free to answer any issues or questions you have!!! -Thanks for your time. -Pabb ';
