Default What would you tell a new guy?

Hello PR community!
My name is Armymonger, and Im a prospecting player looking into PR for a good time from a game and hopefully a good time from the community.

I'd thought I'd introduce myself since I plan to be here and I game for A LONG time since every other Multiplayer game I have played has degraded my personal sanity.

However, I can't play PR just yet because I'm waiting on a microphone headset in order to talk to some of you fine individuals so...
I thought I'd ask some tips from the people who take the time to read this. Some "unwritten rules" or personal rules I keep hearing.

I'm not going to ask for "duh...how do I fire mah gun" type of questions because I took the time to read the manual and watch a lot of Bluedrake PR vids...(yes fanboy here, laugh it up.)

What I'd like to know are some tips on how to play your favorite specific kit or specific vehicle
Rather than tips on how to play PR in general.
Anything be appreciated, no matter how ridiculous it sounds.

A good platform to start getting a grip of specialist kits is playing the role of Medic, Automatic Rifleman or Breacher in a squad. They're not too complex on first use and the learning process can be very quick. The equipment and aspect of these roles are extremely important to any infantry squad and require you to be called in to action by your squad leader often, depending on your situation;

Breacher - Throwing down a C4 to destroy enemy outposts, navigating through buildings and terrain with a grapple hook and shotgun doors etc. (Only do any of these tasks when instructed to do so by your SL or other squad members)

Medic - You will have to use your own initiative most of the time regarding this, so be patient if you don't have a good few rounds using this kit.

Automatic Rifleman - Often find yourself in a position to provide cover, suppressive fire, etc. (If your Squad Leader says shoot there...you shoot there).

With any kit you use be patient may be a couple of rounds to get hang of things but please ALWAYS ask questions, don't listen to the abuse...learn and enjoy your gaming experience of PR.

Relax, be serious but don't play frustrated. If you need a break, take one even if the round is only a third done. The game will be here in a few hours yet.

Don't volunteer that you're new if no one asks. Reading the manual gives you a pretty good rundown of the common stuff like kit requesting and game mode objectives and should be enough to give you a foundation to learn as you go.

Players might be hardcoded, but that sure doesn't seem to stop anybody from trying.


The only winning move is not to play. Insurgency, that is.

Be a killer in combat, and a cunning controller of information--know when it's a good idea NOT to shoot, even though you have a clear shot because you know you can't sacrifice the element of surprise at the wrong moment. Seek out the enemy's FOBs, their assets. Consider how frequently you expose yourself to being spotted, do you ever pause to listen for footsteps when clearing houses? Keep your cool when you're in the fight and always consider your footing. I've had a Churchill quote on my mind recently, to paraphrase: "War is about two things; slaughter, and maneuver. A commander talented at one, requires less of the other."

Be a slaughterer, control information, and you will be unstoppable.

1. Read manual.
2. Join infantry squads.
3. Tell SL's that you're new. Community will do the rest and will spam you with adviced

Some unwritten rules:

Use Local when you need a medic
When SL says: ''Comms'' then you shut up totally, he is probably gaining value information via SL chat or there are enemies nearby the team needs to listen to.
Keep the same kit you are assigned to unless told you so or by asking.
Know when to use local and when to use squadchat
When you are down(wounded) don't panic that you need a medic fast, you have 5 minutes before you go deaddead
When you are at a friendly FOB and have temporalily nothing to do? Go to the crates, request a rifleman kit and drop the ammobox at the crate, this way the crate does not go down that fast (supply crates have a high value to keep alive)

  1. Speak (most servers kick players without mic etc.)
  2. ..but don't speak too much (makes SL very angry since has already to communicate with other SL & commander)
  3. Don't take sniper kit or any other kit without SL permission
  4. Don't use commorose (the Q menu) for laughs and giggles. Gives your location away to enemies.
  5. Have fun, though you might be frustrated in the learning process.

you could continue the list indefinitely but you'll learn the "unwritten rules" quickly.

E: PR has relatively long games (easy 1-2,5 hours). Take breaks after 1-2 games.

Alrighty, I feel the need to ask more questions in order to obtain more info. I appreciate the help, there has been a lot of good tips from here yet the general ideas of " read the manual, ask questions and bug the hell out of people for help, and listen to orders from SL from the correct squad for specific assets" will be a granted once I get in game.

What I'm intrigued about is Vehicular assets, like Tanks, APCs, and Choppers since Infantry kits don't appear to be too hard to grasp. Medic kits and Engi kits for example.
What would a new guy need to know about those types of roles?
