Using V.A.T.S.
V.A.T.S is a system that slows combat down slow motion and allows you to use precise targeting against enemies and groups of enemies. VATS does not pause the game. VATS is activated and exited with the left bumper/L1.

Each action in V.A.T.S. costs a certain number of Action Points (AP) once executed. Action Points are displayed on a meter in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Action Points are also expended by sprinting, so be careful about using V.A.T.S. while on the move.

Action Points regenerate slowly after use. Shooting in FPS mode does not expend AP, so it’s completely ok (and often advisable) to continue to engage enemies in free-form combat while you recover enough AP to continue attacking in VATS.

Using one thumbstick, you can toggle between body parts on a targeted enemy. Each pull of the right trigger commits you to a single attack at that body part.

The numbers appearing over body parts indicate the percentage chance of scoring a hot with each individual shot at that particular moment. Range, weapon accuracy, and cover greatly effect these values.

Headshots deal the most damage but are difficult to execute.
Torso shots do moderate damage
Arm shots have a chance of interrupting attacks
Leg shots can maim enemies and slow them
The second thumbstick allows you to switch between enemies in VATS. It’s possible to engage and kill several foes in a single VATS section provided you have significant APs in reserve.

Once all actions are chosen in VATS, select the execute command. Note that you can also cancel your VATS commands at teh push of a button and select different targets. Note, however, that VATS does not completely pause the battle, so be wary that enemies may still attack as you designate targets.

All actions in VATS will take place in the order programmed once you select execute. If you target one enemy and then another and hit execute, you’ll fire at the first targeted opponent and then switch to the second and fire.

Each hit in VATS builds your critical bar (center of screen). When this bar is filled, press the designated button during you attack execution animation to deal critical damage to the next target.

Grenades cannot be used in VATS.

In addition to being useful in combat, VATS can also detect nearby foes you may not have noticed. Toggling VATS in areas with low visibility is a good idea when you fear an ambush.

War Commander: Rogue Assault Guide [Tips and Tricks]

Overview

Hello friends and welcome to the War Commander: Rogue Assault Tips and Tricks guide. This guide is going to help you new players go over the basics of the the game and get a better understanding of the game itself.

War Commander

War Commander: Rogue Assault is a top down RTS (Real Time Strategy) type game. The mechanics are based on strategy putting you in the shoes of a tactician.

In the game you take control of an army platoon and work to expand your forces. You build troops and use them in missions to defeat your enemies and advance through the game.

The main area you’ll spend your time in is the story mode and that’s where you’ll get your bearings on the game itself. Once you understand it a little more you can take your skills online and battle other players and their armies.

Game modes

In War Commander there are three different game modes you can play through. Campaign, PvP Battle, and War Zones. Each of the three game modes has their own set of rules to play by and give a unique experience for each.

Campaign is rather straight forward much like any other game with a story mode. You go through several missions following a small story that aligns with the actions your making.

You build your troops through out the story and in each mission you advance to harder difficulties. Campaign is the best way to understand War Commanders mechanics and get better at it before you jump into online battles.

The PvP Battles are relatively simple as well. You’re matched up with a single opponent and the two of you set up your armies then fight.

It plays the same way the Campaign does having the same strategic feel making you use your head and make decisions of how you want to act. Same for War Zones. They’re both similar and follow the same theme as the main game.

Battle Boom Cheats: Tips & Strategy Guide

It’s time to bring explosions to the battlefield in Battle Boom, a tower defense RTS game! Be the ultimate commander and deploy a variety of powerful units, like Riflemen, Flamers, Snipers, and of course Tanks! With over 70 types of units, your army is yours as the combinations are endless! Our Battle Boom cheats and tips will give you some pointers on how to win on the battlefield.

In Battle Boom, battles are all about knowing which units to use and when to deploy them, and we’re here to teach you all about it with our Battle Boom cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!

Position your units correctly!

Battle Boom is all about timing your unit deployment so that your positioning is optimal. You’ve learned in the tutorial that you should have your ranged units in the back while your frontline heavy guys push forward. This allows your damage dealers to take out enemies while remaining out of harm’s way thanks to your frontline. This is pretty much the basis of Battle Boom’s combat, so make sure that you’re always positioning your units correctly!

The actual battles of Battle Boom are half active and half planning. Did you know that the most important part is probably the planning part? You should know what each unit in your deck is capable of.

Knowing is half the battle as they say, and being able to put units in their best positions on the fly is the key to victory. Some units have high attack power but low health, some have longer range than others, and some units deal bonus damage to specific types of units.

Beware of clumping up!

Another good reason to have a variety of units that have different ranges is to avoid clumping up. Having too many units all bunched up in the same spot is just asking for them to get blown up by a Missile or melted by a Firebomb. When you have melee and ranged units attacking from different spots, you can at least mitigate some of the damage by having some units be out of range.

Complete missions!

Your mission list can be accessed by the button on the left side of the screen. Once you hit certain player levels, you’ll gain access to new missions. Completing a mission will reward you with precious gold, the currency you need to upgrade your units. You get some gold whenever you open chests, but completing missions is a good way to get it too.

Play through the Stages!

The single-player campaign can be accessed by tapping the “Stage” button on the bottom of the main menu. After you complete the tutorial, you’ll be locked out of Stage mode for a while. You need a certain amount of ranking points before you can play the next stage, so you’ll have to play the regular PvP mode for the time being.

However, once you do unlock a stage, you should play through it as soon as you can. Not only do stages provide you with gold upon completion, but each stage actually teaches you about a new unit and their strengths and weaknesses. Playing the stages is a great way you learn more about all the units in the game and you’re rewarded too!

Practice in Casual Mode!

Want to try out new units you’ve never seen before? Or do you want to try out a new deck configuration that you’re not too sure about? Play Casual Mode, which can be found under the Events. Casual Mode matches you up against another player like a normal battle, but no ranking points are at stake, so you can play carefree! This is great for trying out and testing new strategies.

That’s all for Battle Boom. If you’ve got any other tips or tricks to share, let us know in the comments below!
