Fact File – Tactics

Hello ACPTR,

Today i’m going to teach you about tactics. Yes, I know, tactics are the easy, why are you doing

a fact file on them? Well, because tactics are very important in battle. That is how we fight in wars and battles. It’s all about size and tactics. But anyway, lets get started. There are 9 types of tactics, Emotes, Bombs, Waterfalls, Rakes, Charging, Bunching, or “Group Hugs”, Snowballs, and Room Changing.

Emotes

Emotes are as simple as they sound, when your in the line, an owner will call out an Emote Tactic.                                         E.g. “E+P PUFFLES ON 3!”

then you would press on your keyboard “E” and “P” to do this. Here is a picture of an Emote Tactic

     Tips

  • Hold the emote for 15-30 seconds.
  • Don’t do the emote late or early

Bombs

Bombs are when you run around a room doing a certain emote. The most common bomb is a “J-Bomb” a J Bomb is where you run around the room pressing “J”. Here is a picture of a J Bomb.

Waterfalls

A waterfall is sorta like a bomb but you go up and down while doing an emote. Here is a picture of a waterfall.

  • Make it last 15-30 seconds

Rakes

A rake is just like a waterfall except a rake is going side to side while doing the emote. Here is a picture of a rake.

     Tips

  • Don’t bomb it
  • Don’t do it early [VERY IMPORTANT]
  • Do the emote

Bunching

Bunching is just like it sounds- sitting on each other. This is the only time you should bunch. Don’t bunch in lines, only bunch when your told to bunch in a corner of the room or behind something. Here is a picture of bunching.

     Tips

  • Sit on each other
  • Don’t move
  • Be prepared to charge [NOT ALWAYS]

Snowballs

This tactic is where you say “OPEN FIRE” and throw snowballs at the opponent. This is how CP armies used to fight. They would go to a certain room and do a “Red v.s. Blue” style battle, sometimes lasting up to 3 hours. Here is a picture of Opening Fire.

     Tips

  • If you are in the same room with the opponent, you are allowed to throw snowballs at them
  • If you are hit with a snowball you need to move out of line and back into line
  • If you are taking fire, say “RETURN FIRE” and throw snowballs back at them

Room Changing

This tactic is VERY important in tournaments. There will be lots of lockouts, so you need to switch rooms quick. Room changing is where you open your map and wait for the owner to announce the room. The owner will say “OPEN MAPS” then “GR TO GO TO THE ______” So watch chat alot. You can’t really put a picture because its the easiest thing to explain.            Tips

  • Don’t change rooms early
  • Change rooms on time [VERY IMPORTANT]
  • Watch on chat for which room

That’s all ACPTR! I hope this helped with improving tactics. I’m sorry that i’m the only person in the pictures, but thats because I didn’t have any saved pictures of events so I had to take ones just now. See you guys soon!
