Is it me, or are the weapons overpowered? I got shot in the right leg with the luger and I died in one shot. Everybody else seems to be getting kills and every time i turn a corner i get blasted. I find this game frustrating. I can't get used to it. Does anybody have any tips or strategies?

    Practice. Every game is hard when you begin & on online games there are always pro's that make you feel awful. Just keep trying and you'll get better.

    The thing, I can play CS fine online, and isn't DOD similar to CS?

    DOD is a mod based on CS.So pretty much some guns in CS have a counter-part(which is stronger) in DOD.

    Umm no welcome to a video game that isn't gay ass Halo or Counterstrike where you can be implaed by a plane and have 4 nades go off in your face and still manage to live.

    It's a 4 hit kill with most weapons except the snipers and rifles.

    It's pretty fun, you just have to be careful and take cover. It's not like CS where you can defend and attack at the same time by just sprayin away. DOD needs some patience and strategy.

    You think DOD is annoying, just wait till you get to play Red Orchestra. Ughh.

    It just seems to me that I'm being extra careful, I see an enemy, I try to sprint to cover, and they own me.

    It's kind of annoying considering I wanna take part in the action but every time I try I end up getting raped. :/

    Day of Defeat, isnt that hard.

    it is Running off of the Counter Strike Base.
    But way different.

    but its not the same.
    and a 1 shot 1 kill.
    is either with an MG, Sniper, K98, or a M1 if your lucky :P

    but heres a tip.

    Bind mouse4 to last weapon in sniping.
    get your sniper, switch to your pistol, then click mouse4.
    use your pistol when your in a "Hot Spot".

    and if you want to use a MG and pull out a Rambo.
    Get a Bren or a BAR.

    best tip to give ya, oh yeah.

    Aye this game can be hard at sometimes, mainly because the guns have hardly any recoil, so I could kill a sniper from miles off with a thompson. You should just try DODS, kinda more realistic and I dunno you seem to die less on that.

    DOD is more realistic than other games such as Counter-Strike, but DODS is better IMO, more recoil and everything is more realistic than the original DOD.

    The game, as said before, needs strategy, I had the same problem with you the first time I played it, three words:-

    Practice, practice, practice.

    Use some common sense.

    If you have a Rifle, stay far away, and take shots at the farther targets, taking cover between volleys and to reload. Its that simple

    Snipers should stay hidden, and MOVE AFTER TAKING A FEW SHOTS, people will figure out where you are, and you dont want to be there when some revenge bent hell psycho rockets the shit out of your hidey hole.

    Mgs are an intimidation weapon. Use them for area denial only. Don't want them on your flag? Double their weight in lead. If they stop using the route you are covering, its time to move, because a sniper is probably on the way to give you some free cranial ventillation.

    The assault class, which uses smgs, is the ideal close range fighter. In close quarters, nothing says "fuck you" like blowing someone away with a neat cone of hot lead. The Thompson does more damage, but has a wider cone of fire, so the further your target is, the more ammo you spend dropping them. The mp40 shoots slower, but has a longer range, actually giving you an advantage against the Thompson, seeing as you can hit them with more accuracy more times, before they might get the chance to land a hit on you. Plus, the smoke grenade is a great deterrent to snipers and mgs.

    The support class is a midrange unit. Basically, you can operate at the same distance or closer than you would with a rifle, but not so close that some jerk with an smg can spray you in the face. As soon as you learn to fire in bursts, or otherwise deal with the massive recoil of the BAR and MP44, you should be able to kill most anything within accurate range if you shoot first.

    Finally, the rocket is the hardest class to use. You have to learn how the rocket falls over a distance, you dont want that thing hitting a teammate, it sucks. However, as soon as you see some poor fool run into an enclosed building, break out your rocket and watch them go flying, unable to move. The M1 carbine is often misused, people tend to shoot the entire clip, panicking. Conserve your ammo for your carbine, you dont get much. The C96 should be used the same way as you would use an smg, purely at close range, and dont stop shooting untill your target is absolutely positively not getting up.

    As for pistols, its the luck of the draw if you're not right up next to the sucker.

    Hope my guide helps.
