Hello!

As we often see players that don't know what Assault is or how to play, here is a small tuto to explain everything you need to to know about Assault =)

Who created Assault?

Assault is a special mod created by Asche and Holblin 4 years ago. Holblin code it and Asche create 3 maps. They opened an Assault server for about one year but closed it when their team ([-&-]Unity) died

What is the Assault mod?

It's a TDM, but funnier and where you need to team up if you want to beat the other team. Both teams have a specific goal, which are about checkpoints.

What are the diferent gametypes on Assault:
1) The path: You have evolve in the map by following a path blocked by walls which open after the capture of a checkpoint. In this gametype, the environnement stay the same, but each battlezone are diferent. Example: vitinground
2) The teleport: Each checkpoint has his own environnement, which can be diferent from the other or the same. The only way to access to the next checkpoint is a teleporter and you can't go back. Example: none atm but soon: ut4_greek_assault
3) The map: All the checkpoints are on the same environnement, you can go to the next one by walking or by teleporter and you can go back to the previous checkpoint. They also are in the same battlezone. Example: ut4_hijacked_cuby_assault (except for the last checkpoint)

What is the goal of the attackers (red team) in Assault?
The goal of the red team is to capture some checkpoints. When a red jump on the first checkpoint, the map change and the second checkpoint get activated. When they arrive in front of the last checkpoint, they need to theow a HE or to fire with HK69 to get access to the last checkpoint. When activated, it will open a door behind which you'll find a Mr.Sentry. The map stop itself at the first Mr.Sentry's kill and the team are swapped.
Tips:
-Rrrrruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuush!!!!! If you wait too long, the blue team will be prepared and will kill you.
- Team up! You can't do it alone, if you want to win, you need to be organised and to help your teammates
- Smoke the area. Throwing smoke grenades is a really good way to make a surprise attack and to defeat the defence.

What is the goal of the defenders (blue team)?

They need to protect the checkpoints. To help them, the red often have traps to pass and breakable to destroy.
Tips:
- The Tactical Goggles are really useful to see faster the enemies,  even in the smoke
- Stay near the checkpoints: if you camp too far from them, you risk a surprise attack and to lose the current checkpoint
-Use !tp or !teleport when a checkpoint is captured. The blue always spawn in strategic places and by using this command, you'll be sure to be in the right place to defend when the red will arrive.

The current maps:
- taumafort_b2 by Asche (ready and on the server)
- vitinground_b5 by Asche (ready and on the server)
- lostisiland_b2 by Asche (ready and on the server)
- ut4_hijacked_cuby_assault_a4 by !TopFox (ready and on the server)
- ut4_greek_assault by Mr.Yeah and !TopFox (not ready yet)
- castle_b11 by rabbit (doesn't work atm)

Now that you know everything, go frag on Assault!!!

good idea to write something like that, since many players (including me) never played on assault.
