Multiplayer Tactics - Checkout (Sniper Tactics)
Ok guys well I got bored and took a look at some of the overhead maps and decided, theres allota people that play in a team of 5 and the only thing that makes them a team is that there on the same side. So I decided on coming up with a few team tactic guides for each map for people to try out. This is my first attempt to please be gentle
First off I chose checkout and decided to create a play for fetching the sniper/ digger on the map Checkout. I think the main problem I find is that there is a team of 5 and everyone wants a power weapon at the same time instead of being patient (in my experience this fails 99% of the time) and remember, this is gears 3 so you dont get your host advantage anymore
This is an attempt and enforce teamplay, and if successful 1 of many plays I will be creating for the multiplayer maps of gears of war 3 tacikling plays for power weapons, game type tactics aswel as anything else ether I come up with or someone asks I'll try my best
In this play, Player 1 is going to be the spotter and possibly your best view of how the enemy is split.
If your playing against totaly new and tactless players and player 1 says that all 5 have gone topside then players 2 through to 5 can move to there secondary positions.
In most instance this will not be the case so for this play its Key player 1 keeps you informed.
Player 2 will be the cover position for your half of the map, His job here is to mow down anyone that decides to venture too far into noman's land.
He is also the one who picks at the enemy until players 3 to 5 get into position.
Once player 3 is in position player 2 can then move to his secondary (shotgun) position as player 3 has a clear line of sight and can warn of oncoming danger.
At this point Player 1 and 3 are the only ones who should really be relaying messages to the rest of the team to save confusion.
Player 3 can now cover the narrow passage way and make room for player 2 to move into shotgun position.
Player 4 will provide player 5 with the covering fire he needs while he pushes forward for snag the sniper.
He can provide cover for the length of this area and will most likely acrue a couple downs while the enemy try down player 5 while he dashes sniper.
Once the situation has been relayed you will know wether or not to rush the sniper rifel.
just remember, look at the positions player 2,3 and 4 are in and take player 4's path towards his second position you will have cover from 3 guns so you shouldt have much to worry about.
Just remember, DONT ALWAYS GO FOR THE HEADSHOT this is a team game and if you hit them in the chest it not only helps your team mates out it gets them to fall back to give you a better long range chance.
Once Player 5 has retrieved the sniper Player 3 can then move up to his secondary position, This is effectivly a blind spot for the enemy team and your well within your rights to shotgun anyone that comes past this point
(keep in mind that from player 1's position they most likely have the grenades by now).
From this position, player 1 can then fall back to boltock while waiting for the sniper team (4 & 5) to return (while player 4 is in position it would be a wise choice for player 2 to take the ink or flame nades and plant it as a warning for a flank.
Another option would be to have the sniper take the high point at flame/ink, and have players 1 and 2 and 4 come through the middle and sweep around from the bottom but this way is more risky as your entering into the enemy's lair and they have the best positions alredy at there disposal.
This also effectivly looses your side of the map and the sniper is vulnerable for a flank.
THis is pretty much the same tactics from the other side of the map too as you can see the map is near a mirror image of itself.
Ok well I hope some of you got something from this and would be fun to see a team impliment these tactics in gears 3 just remember, its a team game and if one of you wants to do a mad dash you **** it up for the whole team
If anyone has any questions or comments please feel free to make your voice heard
Thanks for taking the time to do this.
