Men of War: Assault Squad is the new title in the Men of War series. Assault Squad takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and features a completely new cooperative skirmish game mode with access to five different nations (Russia, Germany, USA, Commonwealth and – for the first time ever in the Men of War series – Japan) as well as increased realism and accessibility. The expansion pack will deliver fans and newcomers an intense new WW2 spectacle with almost limitless replayability.

Like previous games in the series, Men of War: Assault Squad includes the unique “direct control” feature which enables players to maneuver units using the directional keys, rather than pointing and clicking. PC Generals can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks and fire armor-piercing shells at enemy emplacements, or take control of individual soldiers as they fight.

Attention, troopers! Pursuant to REACH CENTCOM executive order 0117 Today Section 3 will be providing another briefing on the forces you will encounter during the WINTER CONTINGENCY.
Today’s briefing will cover forces you will be deployed alongside: The Orbital Drop Shock Trooper Corps.

wcu1030 1

As many of you in the service will know, ODST’s have a fearsome reputation that extends from well before our current war with the Covenant.

ODST’s were deployed as covert, anti-insurgency units during the Insurrection, and today they continue to serve in high-risk, covert operations against Covenant positions, far behind the frontlines.

As befitting their specialist, wet-work roles, the ODST’s signature weapons are the M7S Caseless Submachine gun and the M6C/SOCOM pistol.

wcu1030 2

The M7S is an enhanced variant of the common M7 PDW, featuring improved accuracy, stealth, and stopping power. In close quarters, ODST’s with M7’s are extremely lethal; the high rate of fire can easily overwhelm even the shields of some elites.

At longer ranges, however, the M7S is far less accurate. For medium range combat, the M6C is far more accurate. Utilizing specialized ammunition, the M6C has sufficient stopping power to kill most basic Covenant infantry at medium ranges. The drawback is the slower rate of fire, which limits its effectiveness against hard targets.

Though ODST’s limited numbers have relegated them to mostly covert roles, these men and women still have the words “Shock Trooper” in their name. When the mission calls for it, the ODST’s are also some of the best frontline assault troops in the UNSC.

ODST armor offers some of the best combat protection available to human forces, and combined with their inherent toughness, ODST’s can withstand sustained combat against Covenant forces. This makes them ideal for leading assaults with other UNSC branches, or supporting allied forces by taking key positions.

wcu1030 3

ODST’s are proficient in all UNSC weapons, but for offensive missions, ODST’s tend to prefer the BR55 Battle Rifle. The BR55’s unique ammunition and burstfire options make it particularly effective against Covenant armor and shields.

When effecting complex missions, ODST’s will often color their armor, either to distinguish different fireteams or to denote particular mission roles.

Should you find yourself commanding the ODST corps during the WINTER CONTINGENCY, remember that ODST’s with M7 SMG’s and pistols are most effective in close combat. Use cover and stealth to move those ODST’s into close range with their opponents, where their weapons will be most effective.


Likewise, when your ODST’s are leading an assault, you can use their improved defenses and stamina to quickly take and hold key positions on the battlefield. But take care to keep them alive, and know when to retreat when the enemy is overwhelming. Each ODST is ready to give their life in defense of Earth and her Colonies, but their training and equipment is far too valuable to waste.

This concludes the Section 3 briefing for October 30th. Our next briefing will include more intel on enemy forces!

Hello all,

I contacted Moddb yesterday about the Mod page for MoW:AS2, and they told me that I could upload mods. I don't have anything completed at the moment, so maybe someone could try it out to see if it works.

Thx in advance

Can the people who visit this page please track the "star wars - New Version" mod on the Men of war page because they will release 3 new skins once they reach 400 trackers. The skins work for both men of war and men of war: AS. They currently have 325 trackers, so please if you haven't track the mod. They have already released 2 skins, one of a clone and another of Anakin Skywalker. You can use these skins in the gem editor and create your own custom battles. The skins work well when used with the star wars demo for Assault squad, so those waiting up on the release of that mod can enjoy using the skins and mixing up mods for custom battles. Please, only 75 trackers to go.

Yeah, **** steam workshop. Moddb wont create an AS2 side, and I wont upload skins and my mods on Steam workshop. Look at the developement of the downloads here, most addons have an averange dl-number of 500.

Assault Squad is essentially the shinier more visually appealing version of Men of War, I dont find that it adds a lot other than the skirmish mode, some new maps. some new units, and some new models replacing pre-existing ones. It's not exactly groundbreaking however, seeing as it pretty much builds off of the success of it's predecessor, I'm really not even sure why Assault squad was even made, my guess was targetting a streamlined Multiplayer platform, but the game is equally popular as a singleplayer…

Lowest Rated (16 agree) 3/10

Men of War is successful because each game naturally generates its own narrative. It is brilliant because it has character. It is great because (in campaign missions at least) you feel attached to your troops. Assault Squad is Men of War minus all of this, and is horrid. Its lone addition is the new Skirmish mode: a depressing, soulless grind against entrenched AI. Instead of wire-tight combat against a fellow human comes wave after wave of artificially buffed but simple-minded robots; in place…
