vs CommandoBody.png
Commando
If using the Double Barrel Shotgun, Commandos heavily outrange you, but if you can get close they should be no problem. Try to use Constructs and cover around the map to your advantage while doing this. The Light Machine Gun is similar in effectiveness to the Minigun and Assault Rifle at medium range, so if using this weapon any head to head fights will be fairly even. Try to place down a Med Pack, behind cover if possible, to provide some extra health during the fight. Using the Riot Shield can prevent some damage if a Commando is shooting at you, but it won't protect you from an RPG or Triple Barrel RPG hit, so don't rely on it.

vs MarksmanBlueBody.png
Marksman
Your Riot Shield will provide good protection from the Marksman's Rifles and Pistols, so be sure to use it. The Marksman's advantage comes from his ability to attack at range, so try to get close. Once you do so, your Light Machine Gun, Double Barrel Shotgun or Riot Stick will prove effective. Use your Med Pack to heal some health after the fight if necessary.

vs EngineerBodyBlue.png
Engineer
If using the Light Machine Gun, you should be able to outdamage the Engineers SMG in a head on fight at close to medium range, be sure to aim for the head and keep moving. Try to place down a Med Pack, behind cover if possible, to provide some extra health during the fight. If using the Double Barrel Shotgun you will need to get close, ideally sneaking up behind the Engineer. Use Constructs and cover around the map to do this.

Medic
vs MinerBodyBlue.png
Miner
If using the Light Machine Gun, be sure to not get too close or the Miner's shotgun will kill you quickly. Use the map terrain to you advantage, for example by jumping on top of a building, to do this. If a Miner is coming towards you, shoot as he approaches. Once he gets very close you may want to switch to the Riot Stick at a single hit will take him out. If using the Double Barrel Shotgun the fight will be more even, but if you can put down a Med Pack where the fight is taking place the extra health will give you an advantage. In either case, aim for the torso, because that is where you will do the most damage.

Medic
vs ZombieBodyBlue.png
Zombie
If using the Double Barrel Shotgun, Zombies will be easy to kill as they need to get close to attack. If you are mobbed by them then you will usually die, however. The Light Machine Gun is effective at close to mid range, so try to keep your distance and attack if a Zombie approaches. Your Med Pack can be used to heal both you and allies. If a Zombie gets too close you may wish to switch to the Riot Stick and hope for a lucky shot, as two hits will kill a Zombie.

Medic
vs Specialist - Blue.png
Specialist
The Specialist has a wide array of weaponry, so you will need to adjust your tactics accordingly. His Machete is a one hit kill, so try to keep your distance. If he does get too close, you Riot Stick will also prove effective. If using the Auto-Shotgun, the Specialist will need to get close to harm you. If you are using the Double Barrel Shotgun this will be an even fight - aim for the head to try and take him out. If using the Light Machine Gun, try to keep your distance and kill him before he can get too close. If using the SMG, the specialist will be effective at mid to close range. If you are using the Double Barrel Shotgun, you will need to get close, ideally sneaking up behind him. Use Constructs and cover around the map to do this. If you are using the Light Machine Gun, you should be able to outdamage the SMG in a head on fight at close to medium range, be sure to aim for the head and keep moving. Try to place down a Med Pack, behind cover if possible, to provide some extra health during the fight. If the Specialist hits you with a Chemical Bomb, jump into water the stop the damage.
