Took myself the liberty to use my DEV powers for the greater good of mankind (and anybody that stumbles upon PR)

Take that. Stick with it. All these fancy tanks and aircraft can wait, at first you'll need to learn how to fight as an infantryman.

Here, take a few shots at those targets. Don't forget to call out contacts in a combat situation and wait for orders on whether to engage or not, unless you have been allowed to shoot on sight.

Ah, your grouping wasn't too bad there! If you want to improve your performance, you'll need to understand that the more you move, the worse you shoot. Take a knee, wait a few seconds, take a breath and then shoot, don't spray away.

Yeah, that's it! Put your weapon on safe and listen up again.

When you're being sent out there, you'll report to your squad leader immediately. Tell him how to call you, that you're new, and ask him what equipment he wants to assign you and where to deploy. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Although, here, take this one as well.

*Hands you the field manual*

This is your bible now. Read it carefully and you'll spare your squad leader a lot of stress.

Don't try to be a hero. Try to stay alive before everything else. Know how to use the rifle, and learn the basics of first aid - the field manual covers that - so that you can help your medic, should he get wounded in combat, and people can rely on you. You won't want to drive any heavy vehicles or even aircraft yet.

In a proper "INF VOIP" squad, you'll be of use even when not very experienced, and you'll quickly learn everything that's important out on the battlefield. Follow orders, don't be too shy on the radio, and ask when you have questions, and you'll get along nicely with the veterans.

Now go and report to Wicca's platoon, these guys are excellent at introducing recruits.


...

I'm not quite sure why I just role-played that, but yeah. Read the manual, join an infantry squad, tell them you're new and let them guide you through a bit, and you'll be fine. .

    A donation of hookers and blow will be just as widely accepted as a bribe It's actually the real reason that nosferatus is a DEV, or actually it's because of his abilites to make awesome highlights and freaking good refs

    Thats kind of what the manual is all about. Though you do more 'sprayin and prayin' when you go vet because its always more accurate than accurate fire =)

    Well played out.
    That should be put in the manual or on the loading screen when someone runs PR for the first time on a fresh instal.
