Hacksaw Ridge inspires Heroes & Generals to introduce medkits

Have you had a chance to see the six time Oscar nominated movie Hacksaw Ridge yet? We did – and we think it is a pretty cool movie.

Hacksaw Ridge is about the World War 2 experiences of Desmond Doss, who was an American combat medic. The movie is directed by Mel Gibson and stars Andrew Garfield as Doss.



Actually the movie inspired us to introduce medkits into Heroes & Generals – something that has also been a much requested feature by the community. The medkits will be in the upcoming ‘Medic!’-update releasing March 21st.

The medkits will be available for all three factions and all soldier types in the game and enable you to heal both yourself and and your friends in the hellfire of battle – giving you just that extra edge needed to win the battle. We will reveal further details on medkits at a later date.

Exclusive movie and medkit bundle

Obviously Heroes & Generals and Hacksaw Ridge have the fact that both are set in the midst of World War 2 in common. However, there is also a shared dna beyond genre as a central theme to both movie and game is the notion, that one man’s actions and courage can make a difference in the war.

That is why we at Reto-Moto reached out to Lionsgate and Valve to put together an exclusive Steam bundle featuring the Hacksaw Ridge movie, a 14 day Veteran Membership and the Heroes & Generals Medkit & Medic Ribbon Boosters pre order DLC. This bundle is only available on Steam and only to US customers.

If you live outside of US, you can still get a hold of the Heroes & Generals Medkit & Medic Ribbon Boosters DLC as a stand alone Steam pre order DLC. It contains a medkit for one soldier plus 5 x Medic Ribbon Booster.

Please note that the Medkit and Medic Ribbon Booster will be made available to you in-game on March 21st, while the 14 day Veteran Membership will be activated on your first login after purchasing the DLC..

The Hacksaw Ridge/Heroes & Generals bundle and the Heroes & Generals Medkit & Medic Ribbon Boosters DLC is available until March 14th 2017.

Five tips on Close-Quarter Infantry

Close Quarter Combat is inevitable in Control Points – here are five tips on creating a Close-Quarter Infantry soldier.


1: Sub-Machine Guns & Assault Rifles are your new best friends
Each type of weapon has unique advantages and disadvantages. The SMG’s and AR’s are most effective at close range while being able to move. With their larger ammo count and their often fast rate of fire they are capable of taking care of an enemy swiftly. 


2: Explosives are effective
Explosives can be very effective to use – Grenades can help you clear rooms so you don’t have to engage with your opponent face to face. Also anti-personnel mines allow you to protect your back, they will trigger as soon someone walks over it.


 
3: Melee Combat can be silent but deadly
If you need a swift approach or don’t want players to know where you are, melee combat will help you out. With little sound they are effective at taking care of your opponent without anyone noticing. Knives, shovel or even the wrench can all be used for a silent kill.


4: You might need some wheels
Fighting in close quarters means you have to get into the combat zone quickly. All vehicles are suited for this, but keep an eye out for Halftracks and Cargo Trucks, which can be used to deploy in, so you’re at the frontline without risking exposure to the opponents between your objective and the opponents objective.
 

5: Consider using modifications
There are many different types of modifications possible. For a close range infantry it’s recommended to focus on damage and rate of fire. However, be careful, because you’ll sacrifice a lot of precision, stability and range.
