Warhammer 40,000 Battlesector – Tips and Tricks

TIPS AND TRICKS

If you’re planning on getting in the thick of it when Warhammer 40,000 Battlesector launches I’ve gathered all my knowledge in a Codex whose pages shall be unveiled upon those worthy enough:

  • Respect your Intercessors: what seems like a boring units at first will quickly become your bread and butter due to their role as rank and file infantry they’re able to act as a jack of all trades as long as they’re able to keep the enemy at claw’s length. So, make sure to…
  • Keep your enemies away: never underestimate the overwhelming numbers of the Tyranid swarm. Your units can get into fisticuffs and come out on top, but barely is the case when 3 or 4 poor sods are surrounded by dozens of minions of the galactic swarm. You can do this by…
  • Keeping your forces on the move: Two feet can barely outrun several legs but it’s better to fix, flank and finish then to be fixed, flanked and finished. Being able to this successful, aspiring Chapter Masters will need to learn how that…
  • Terrain is your friend, start using it: More times than not, battles were won before the first swords had clashed and muskets were fired. In military slang, terrain is the ultimate force multiplier. Lucky for those venturing into the moon of Baal, a thick part of the enemy forces need to close in to finish you off so by employing good use of terrain to break line of sight and lines of fire such as rocky formations will go a long way to assure victory. Avoid being overwhelmed and use the features nature has bestow upon thee to…
  • Start by setting-up kill zones: the very basic of warfare- the more bullets are flying into a certain direction, the higher the chance to hit your target. To the tyranid hive mind, quantity is a quality in it’s own and, more often than not will try to rush your formations. Play defensive, use the high ground and line of sight to get the first and, even better, the last shot off before the enemy can even know what hit them. Set up your units overlooking small passages, making sure the enemies are drawn there. Do this by…
  • Setting-up the perfect overwatch: Battlesector allows you to set-up the perfect overwatch by selecting where your units are looking at and how close do you want your enemies before shooting upon them. This might seem like a minor change but it allows the player to set-up those perfect kill zones and turn a couple of intercessors into a murderous force to be reckon with. If you can’t do this…
  • Start prioritizing your targets: Of course, facing a tyrannofex is very different from facing venomthropes or hormagaunts. In my personal experience, venomthropes are a pain to deal with so usually my bolters are focused on shooting them first. Their HP bar is thick as their blood
  • Take the iniciative: Waiting for the enemy to meet you can be a blessing, but sometimes it can lead to some shots missing and your units becoming overwhelmed so: In some situations it’s better to take the upper hand as soon as the battle start. Remember that…
  • Rocket Jumps are Win Jumps: It has been the collective goal of mankind since it’s inception to create personal, fully functional jet packs. The fine battle specimens of 41st millennium are lucky enough to rocket jump into trouble, deal with it and get out. Rocket Jumps open new ways to flank your enemies, mainly by ignoring terrain and landing behind them. With their chain-swords, two rocket-jumping units can spread absolute chaos mayhem and cripple the enemies initiative, sometimes at the cost of their own lives. So make sure to support them by…
  • Using heroes abilities: Heroes are essential in pulling off amazing turns just due to the fact they can enact two different actions every turn, turning them into a force to be reckon with. Jumping behind enemy lines and cutting entire units, shooting and healing in the same turn, buffing and fighting or just shooting twice. Commanding skills can turn the tide of a battle once unlocked, like furious aerial bombardments.
