Blitzkrieg Mod is one of the most popular CoH mods after the famous Eastern Front Mod and adds more units, expands the existing doctrines and adds a more realistic damage system to the game. It's at the heart of what makes playing this mod addicting - it's truly punishing if you make too many mistakes but is extremely rewarding if you play well.

Overview[]

There are several differences between the original Company of Heroes and the Blitzkrieg MOD.

Infantry units are highly vulnerable to heavy fire by machine guns (MG Squads, machine guns on vehicles for e.g.) and need good cover. The first salvo of a machine gun often kills 2 or 3 of a Squad when they have less cover.

Compared to the original COH it's more important for tanks to keep the front towards the enemy and have their sides and back covered up by own units.

Community[]

The developers of this game work on this game constantly and are actively involved in the official forum and discord between posting announcements, responding to bug fixes, and questions. If you want to speak to a developer, your best chance is to make a forum account and post a thread. The devs do check discord, and there is even a bug reporting channel now (before, bug reports would get lost in the sea of messages). The devs rarely check the steam forum, though occasionally, veteran players will get on.

The community is not very big but pretty active. It appears that most players hail from Europe, so one can expect Blitzkrieg to be active from around 1600-2300 EST most evenings and very busy 0700-1500 EST Saturdays and Sundays

Content Creators[]

Krieger Blitzer has been making videos since 2015 and has a lot of videos.
