Default Re: FOBS - The Most Important Facet of the Game PR

Good Morning,

Ok, so, tactics need to change. When you see an enemy FOB and all of the emplacements, only destroy the FOB. As the current code stands, if they have built any of the categories of assets to the max, they will not be able to deploy those same assets on any other FOB unless there is an extra FOB that has no assets. Example, you build a FOB with 2 HMG's on the north side of Al Basrah and the enemies destroy that FOB but not the HMG's, you will have to build 2 more FOBS to be able to build anymore HMG's. Does this make sense? I will try to illustrate this concept in my next update to my FOB guide.

Also, it will also be noted that the manual is incorrect in regards to the number of assets you can build on the map overall due to the code change. If your max number of FOBS for a map is 6, then you will only be able to build 12 HMG's max, not the 24 as listed in the manual.

This code change emphasizes the importance of proper FOB planning and placement. Also, remember where you built FOBS so you can inform the commander to "demolish" the area where it was so the assets are demolished as well.

Till next time...

Good Evening,

Ok, it appears that the bunker FOB building has changed a bit more. Back in the day when I was a wee little kid, you could build FOBS inside the "lobby" or the "garage" of the back part of the bunker. While you still can do this, the FOB now sinks to the "dirt" layer showing only the tent instead of being placed on top of the "concrete" layer. With this being said, it has been said that these types of placed FOBS cannot be taken down. While I get the picture of them not being able to be taken down with a C4 stick, I wonder if a C4 satchel would.

Anyone?

Those bunker FOBs can be taken down with regular (small) C4. I've only had to do it twice or so. I have been told that it requires 2 C4 charges, probably because the damage is reduced due to the slight distance gap. Also, you may need to be careful with the placement of the C4 so that it is over the sandbag walls of the FOB hidden in the ground.

I've noticed that C4 sometimes gets the FOB to the "building in progress" status, but not sure if it's a server related thing or a damage related thing.

Maybe it's just me, but I've yet to come across anyone building a 'super FOB' to act as a vehicle repair depot.

On certain maps the main bases are a long way off and if a vehicle requires repair, it's a long way to go at half speed or in a fragile state.

A FOB with repair stations (these can be replenished by logi trucks from main) which has a small defense force manning a tow, AA, maybe a HMG or two which includes a combat engineer, could seriously increase the effectiveness of the team's armour.

Am I missing something? I've only been playing periodically for a couple of months

Good Evening,

That's too much work and thought. If it can't be said in 120 characters, it won't be read. If it can't be done in 20 Microwave seconds, it won't get done. If the instruction manual is more than a FaceBook post, it will never be followed.

He's just asking about leaving a truck on a forward FOB, I've seen it done but a pro armour squad often has a spare guy in the squad following them with a truck.

Often armour must return to main for ammo anyway.

Good Evening,

Sorry for the sarcasm, just a bit tired of the AAS maps day after day. I mean, the 2 North America servers that are usually popped and have decent stability or ping are constantly playing AAS.

I've been taking screenshots like crazy to illustrate how bizarre some SL's think and how far OFF objective people are. Maybe they don't realize it due to tunnel version.

Oh well, enough rambling... .FOBS and crates are still the two most important assets of the game.
