Icons commander german sprint ability Sprint Edit

The Sprint ability gives all infantry (including Snipers, Mortar teams and the MG 42 Heavy Machine Gun team) the possibility to move very quickly for a short period of time. Infantry squads can use this to dodge artillery or set up a flanking move. Likewise, weapon teams or snipers can use this to get out of harms way.

Infantry is not able to fire their guns while sprinting, stopping enables them to fire again even while the ability is still active.

More info on this squad and this ability.

Icons ability german medkit Field First Aid Edit

  • Requires Veteran 1
  • Cost 20Icon Munition COH2 Small.png 20 to activate
  • Cooldown: 45 seconds

German infantry almost all have acces to the Field First Aid kit. This ability unlocks itself after reaching Veterancy 1. Important to remember is that the squad cannot heal itself, it can only be used on other friendly squads.

When you heal another squad, they have to be next to each other and it takes 5 seconds to complete the ability. After that healing takes place over a short period of time. Be careful when you use this ability, as it takes both squads out of combat!
