Heroes & Generals Wiki


The ‘bucket automobile’ is a light multi-role armored car. It is robust and well liked by German infantry for whom it serves as fast transportation. It is armed with a single 7.92mm MG34 machinegun for defense.

  • This vehicle is both cheap and invaluable; it is recommended to purchase one as soon as you are able.
  • The Kübelwagen is notoriously prone to flipping on rough terrain when moving above half speed. Slow down before hitting bumps.
  • Passengers are great, a bus is not. You become a larger and larger target both physically and mentally. The enemy seeks out these type of killing sprees. One well-placed explosive (mine, grenade, shell, or bomb) eliminates a plethora of team resources, especially at the start of the round.
  • As a gunner, refrain from aimlessly firing at anything that is not an enemy soldier or jeep, tanks cannot be damaged by your machine gun regardless of where you hit them.
  • Hold your crouch (Ctrl) key to keep your head down. Although you lose some visibility, you’re a smaller target.
  • It is recommended that you attach a Supply crate to the back of your jeep. This can save your life when in a fierce fire-fight. Alternatively, you can equip the Panzerfaust 60 supply crate for anti-tank situations.
