  • Your SDKFZ is a spawn-point for the rest of your team. Try to conceal the location. Use riverbanks, trees, hills, or other terrain masking to prevent the enemy from locating it.
  • Do not unlock friendly APCs. Doing so will not let your team spawn on it, and will remove the spawn capability from the APC.
  • Enemies love to camp these spawn-points. Be alert when spawning, and check your surroundings. If you are killed when spawning, let the rest of your team know!
  • If you find numerous enemies seemingly coming from a direction that is unnatural based on the map you are playing, take a friendly along and scout the area for a German SdKfz 251/1 (the German equivalent to the American M3 Half-track).
  • Holding crouch lets you to lower the driver's bullet proof shield.
  • The machine gun should only ever be used as a last effort in defending the APC, try to not use it often because it can lead to helping the enemy team discover the APC.
  • A good thing to use with an APC driver are grenades. This is because you can throw them in water crossings to disarm enemy mines that might be there.
