This is the strategy page for the Soldier.
-The Soldier is a tough, slow class with a high base health of 200.
-His Rocket Launcher can be used to propel enemies into the air, and can be used to Rocket Jump, allowing access to hard-to-reach areas.
-Soldiers can Rocket Jump onto high ledges above chokepoints and wreak havoc on the enemy team from above.
-Use your Rocket Jump to your advantage. If you have the B.A.S.E. Jumper, you can glide above opponents and attack with your Shotgun or Shovel.
-The Rocket Launcher can blast enemies into the air, which can be devastating if they’re on low health. If the initial explosion doesn’t destroy them, then it’s a safe bet that the fall damage will.
-Try to maximize the splash damage of your Rocket Launcher. A drove of enemies is a higher priority target than an enemy soldier.
-If you have the Air Strike, then you should be focusing on Rocket Jumping. Firing the Air Strike while airborne will deal much more damage, and if paired with the Gunboats or the B.A.S.E. Jumper, can make a deadly combo.
-If you run out of Rocket Ammo, then try and pair up with a Medic and use your Shotgun until you find an Ammo Box.
