Pairing with a Radioman on the battlefield will enable you to request supply drops, smoke screens, artillery barrages, as well as aircraft strafing and bombing runs.
Additionally, you may command your team to utilize different tactics. Communicating effectively as an Officer will allow you and your brothers-in-arms to turn the tide of battle with a creative battle plan or timely radio transmission.
Day of Infamy is a highly strategic experience that rewards intelligent maneuvering and coordination with your team. Pay close attention to your surroundings, as blindly running into an open area is the easiest way to be killed. Lean around corners, lay prone to steady your aim, and walk slowly to conceal your footsteps - these are effective strategies to stay alive. A team that sticks together, advances cautiously, and uses proximity VOIP is more likely to overcome a scattered and disorganized opponent.
As you play the game, you will earn your rank. You may customize a personal trading card to visually represent yourself to others. Ranking up does not provide players with any gameplay advantages or incentives, so gameplay balance remains purely skill-based.
