A guide to the combat tactics in Shardpunk: Verminfall. Important to get an unlock.

Guide to Combat Tactics

Introduction

To get one of the achievements (and unlocks) you need to use all the combat tactics. Some are more obvious than others, so I am assembled this guide.

Combat Tactics

Bring them on!

  • Kill 5 enemies in a single turn
  • Reward: +2 damage for 2 turn

Get’em from the side

  • Score 4 flanking shots at non-melee enemies in a single turn
  • Reward: +1 AP for everyone

Take Cover

  • Hunker down everyone, with nobody being flanked.
  • Reward: 20 defense to everyone

Too Loud

  • Throw at least 5 grenades in a single turn.
  • Reward: enemy reinforcement will span faster (not really a reward, eh?)

  1. Back from the dead: you can auto-revive a character with fusion core, so it’s easy to unlock.

  2. Take Cover: hunker down everyone, with nobody being flanked. +20 defense to everyone
    Wait it out: hunker two characters right next to each other, -5 stress for both (!!!!!!!)
    Back from the dead: kill an enemy with a character just revived this turn, -10 stress for all (your 4th character rescue can count, so you don’t have to let someone fall to to unlock this)
