  1. Here is a more indepth video guide of what I cover below - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cz0wuJp2C68&feature=youtu.be The Mortar has finally been brought to us in update 9.4. In this video I'll be giving you a tutorial on how to effectively operate the mortar. The mortar comes in 81/82 mm variants depending on which faction you're in and is available to ALL factions in Squad. The mortar can only be used within a FOB and must be emplaced by the squad leader costing 300 construction points. There is a maximum of two mortars per FOB - every mortar comes preloaded with a "magazine" of 3 rounds and each magazine from there costs 90 ammo points. This means logistics support is crucial for FOBS to keep mortars firing throughout the game. You can fire approximately 33 rounds from a FOB before needing resupply. In regards to aiming, your squadleader must place an observe/move marker on the map to give you an accurate range and direction. Man the mortar using "F" and right click to aim down sights. Use the chart on the left to set the mils and use the mark on your compass wheel from your squad leads marker to align yourself with the target. Keep in mind you will need to adjust for your elevation, or the elevation of the target to get accurate rounds right away. Firing one round at a time works best for me so far - that way your spotter can give you accurate corrections, there is still a significant cone of fire to the mortar, but it's nothing like the rocket technical, not even close. Once you get on target, you'll often hear the command "fire for effect" which means keep dumping rounds until the threat is eliminated. I really feel the mortar opens up the game SO much. It allows teams to severely punish FOBS that are put on flags, or put on hard to breach positions. I'll be doing some more advanced guides in the future once I figure out some effective strategies to use consistently such as FOB placement, etc.
  2. The title pretty much says it all, when i start the game on steam i get an error that says "The following components are requried to run this program : Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Runtime. I go to MS website https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=48145and download said program and when i try to install it only gives me the option to Repair or Uninstall. When I click repair and after a minute or so it gives me a "0x80240017 unspecified error" and an option to view the log file.

  3. Just bought SL Tier, no alpha code?

    I got my key! But I don't have any type of torrenting software. What's a reliable program to use?
  4. Just bought SL Tier, no alpha code?

    Just read through that FAQ you listed and checked all my spam/promotions folders. It's been about 30 minutes and nothing. From what I've read it's supposed to be near instant at this point.
  5. Just bought the $70 SL tier package, and got the confirmation email from paypal, but nothing from devs yet? What's the usual turn around time for keys?
