A resulting threat of the map's large open fields coupled with covered secluded out of way places are Commandos with Sniper Rifles. The most obvious camping place is the towering lighthouse at the end of the village, but this is very exposed to return fire from both the ground and the air. Added to that, the ladder up the structures cliff-side is long and lacking protection, not to mention directly in the view of another well-used sniper position, a remote untravelled hill parallel to the lighthouse on the National side of the map. This point has a good cover of trees, good views and a building with a raised balcony. Another well frequented sniping den of both factions is the low cliffs to the south of the Village flag as it has sweeping views over most of the map when followed around and is easy for a commando to simply disappear if confronted by hostile infantry or vehicles.
It has been said that tanks are a near unstoppable force on this map. The best chance infantry have to take them on is the slightly-cluttered urban setting, that is, the village. Gunners with Tank Busters should gain height so they are less likely to be seen and can't be run over, in other words, getting on top of buildings or at least ascending a balcony. Heroes without ranged anti-tank weapons (Commandos and Soldiers) can find shelter much more easily and are less likely to be run over. Their infantry AT weapons act much more effectively at close quarters.
Planning out your next round? Organizing your clan strategy? Take a look the Conquest guide to ensure the control of the 4 capture points:
- Hillside Farm
- The lighthouse is an obvious camping spot for Commandos, but sometimes also attracts Gunners and Soldiers. Due to it's popularity among sniping commandos, experienced players will often shoot at the lighthouse without having an idea if there's actually a stealthed commando up there, so don't be upset if you're getting shot despite being invisible.
- Players wanting to climb the lighthouse should take caution, as commandos often places troop traps at the bottom or top of the ladder. Additionally, the climb up the ladder makes one an easy target for sniping commandos positioned near the house on the left side of the lighthouse (see Hillside-Lighthouse Point)
- Another popular tactic is the 180 wingclip where a pilot positions his plane at just the right angle so he can do circular wingclip. This is often used to rack up wingclips and annoy the enemy.
- When climbing up the ladder, you can lean you hero forward and see right through the lighthouse. This can reveal enemy heroes.
- The hill parallel to the lighthouse on the Hillside Farm side is a favorite for sniping commandos on both sides as it is often deserted and has a great view on the lighthouse. A sniper in this spot can easily pick off anyone who tries to climb the ladder.
