The Soldier Class

These guys are well disciplined and highly-trained professionals in the field of combat when it comes to slaughtering your enemies. Use these guys wisely as only a certain amount of players can use this class. They are considered quite useful in the Siege and Escort Gametypes.

Introduction to Game types

NOTE: Deathmatch is not included on the list seeing that it is very common in the Source Engine

Capture the Flag(CTF): Each team must capture the flag of their opposing team and return it to your base.

Siege: Each team must invade and destroy their opposing team's fortress. However you must defend your fortress as destruction of certain buildings may limit your resources (i.e. defenses are disabled)

Escort: Depending on the map One team must escort their vehicle to the destination point within the given amount of time. The opposing team must destroy the escorted vehicle and deley the escorting team off until the time runs out. If the vehicle is destroyed, don't panic, you can simply repair the vehicle and continue on with your objective (Engineer Required).

Infection: Similar to the classic zombie game-type (except the zombies are made out of plastic parts of course). One team is the green (or tan) survivors. The opposing team are the infected. The Survivors must survive until the time runs out to win the game. The Infected must devour all of the survivors in order to win the game.

That concludes the article.
keep a close eye on the news articles of this mod (and the Commando Class).
