5 keys to unlocking the power of Duty 1

1. Use the iron sights

Click the right mouse button to use the iron sights of your weapon and aim more accurately. This will reduce the recoil and spread of your weapon.

2. Use your squad

Press the F key to communicate with your squad and give them orders. They will follow you, cover you, and alert you of enemies. Use the Q and E keys to lean and peek around corners.

3. Use the grenades

You can carry up to ten grenades of different types: frag, smoke, and ‘stielhandgranate’. Use the G, H, and J keys to throw them. Frag grenades explode and cause shrapnel damage, smoke grenades create a cloud of smoke, and ‘stielhandgranate’ grenades have a longer range and a louder sound.

Jeep can carry four passengers and has a mounted machine gun, the tank can carry two passengers and has a main cannon and a coaxial machine gun, and a truck can carry six passengers and can ram enemies.

5. Use the cheats

Press the ~ key to enable the console and type the cheat code followed by the enter key. Some of the cheats are god, noclip, give all, map [name], no target, and timescale [number].
