Dust Tactics | Published 18 July 2012

Your war effort relies upon good intelligence. As the battle lines shift and are redrawn, and as your foes deploy new weapons and technologies, you need as much clear, concise, and actionable information as possible to rise victorious from the battles that await you.

The updated Dust Tactics FAQ version 1.4 (pdf, 3.7 MB) is now available for download. It is also available on the game’s support page. This living document is a must-have for every Dust Tactics tournament organizer and ambitious tournament player. It contains game-balancing errata and addresses questions raised by the introduction of new rules and units.

Lead developer Zach Tewalthomas provides an introduction to the newest FAQ, pointing out some of the most important updates.

Lead Developer Zach Tewalthomas on the Dust Tactics FAQ:

Survivors clamber from the wreckage of a destroyed transport. They are dazed by the blast, but their instincts kick in. Reflexively, they move into the battle-ready positions that they were drilled to adopt in the event of a catastrophe such as the one they have just endured. Shaken, but far from defeated, these brave survivors launch themselves back into the fray with strengthened resolve!

This FAQ update describes what happens to units that survive the destruction of a transport. Where are they placed? Who makes the decision? What if they were in a helicopter flying over impassible terrain? In addition, we’ve added errata to address some of the newer units, such as the SSU Sniper and Observer teams, the Allies Medium Combat Walker M3-E "Rattler," and important errata that add an additional weapon line to all unit cards for the SSU Commissars, both as individuals and as a squad. So take a moment to check out the updates, then get back out there, guns blazing!
