Rising Storm 2: Vietnam - How to Play Team Leader

Communication is a key componenet to playing the Team Leader role in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam.

When playing Team Leader in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, you’ll need to have a working microphone on hand. This is because your role requires constant communication, and if you’re typing, you can’t accurately keep track of what’s going on in the game.

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is extremely fast-paced, meaning that the enemy can alter their push at a moment’s notice. As such, you’ll need to constantly keep on your toes in order to effectively call out orders whenever you begin to lose the objective.

Using the Radio as Team Leader

There are various ways the Team Leader can utilize the radio in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam.

In Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, the Team Leader should stay at the radio whenever recon and artillery is available. If you’re playing as the USA, make sure you use the Radioman class. This will help you get a better view of the battlefield, and grant a more effective Artillery Mark. To place the Artillery Mark, hold the “F” key either with or without binoculars.

When using the radio, you may find it advancing forward to the frontline helpful, as it brings you closer to the battlefield. By being close to the frontline as a VC Team Leader grants you and your team a significant bonus, as you’re able to use the ability “Ambush Deployment” which respawns all of your dead team members next to you.

To use either Ambush Deployment or Fast Respawn, press the “N” key. Note that you don’t want to rush into the frontlines (or out in the open), so always proceed with caution and keep a safe distance. This is because if you die, you lose all artillery and air support for the duration of your spawn timer.

How to Coordinate as Team Leader

Be sure to coordinate with your team when playing as Team Leader in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam.

What’s the best way for a Team Leader to communicate in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam? Well, you’ll need to inform your squad leaders and team what the battlefield looks like and where to go. Do you want them to flank a certain way?

Give detailed directions, let your team know if they should hold the position after moving in. Don’t feel shy about giving orders, it’s your job as the Team Leader. Even if members of your team give you a hard time, it’s better than having everyone run in blind.
