Battlefield 1 – Conquest Game Mode Tips and Tricks
This section covers tips and tricks for the Conquest game mode, where two teams compete to capture as many control points as possible.
CAPTURE SATELLITE POINTS
While everyone focuses on control points B, C and D in the center of the map, don’t forget to swing around to control points further out, like A, E or G.
You’ll get more points towards your player level for capturing multiple objectives that you would for getting a few paltry kills here and there.
If you happen to be on a team that is suffering a considerable defeat, your army commanders will occasionally deploy an Armored Train (equipped with six heavy gunner stations) as a way to turn the tide.
It is unknown what specific conditions trigger the locomotive’s appearance, but it seems to be roughly halfway through a match when one team is losing by a considerable margin.
MINE THE GAP
If the enemy team deploys an armored train, pull out some dynamite or anti-tank / H.E. mines and lay them along the track.
The train will be unable to avoid the mines, which will make quick work of the turrets on board.
USE WHAT NATURE GIVES YOU
If you happen to be in a match where a sandstorm occurs, count yourself lucky and use it as cover. Play as an Assault, Medic or Support class and use the near-zero visibility to maneuver around and capture points without fear of snipers or air support.
Sandstorms also provide excellent cover to track down and destroy heavy vehicles or artillery trucks, as their drivers will be easily disoriented in the storm.
PLAN YOUR ATTACK
Nobody likes to get killed, but use the down time you have before redeploying to formulate a goal and a plan before jumping back into the action. It’s a lot easier to succeed when you know exactly what it is you want.
USE SCALE TO YOUR ADVANTAGE
Since the Sinai Desert map is so large, use the southern sea of sand to get behind your enemies and initiate a surprise attack from the rear.
