Soldiers, welcome to Isonzo's mountains and valleys! Isonzo is a unique FPS experience that may differ from previous FPS experiences. Use this guide to prepare you for battle.

The Setting

Isonzo is situated in the Italian Alps of 1914-1918 – The Entente Powers were fighting Central Powers. In this battle the Kingdom of Italy was facing the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Central Powers). It took place in the high mountains of Italy's Alps, where the Isonzo River ((now the Soca River)) runs through. The battle for the Isonzo mountains and plains saw Luigi Cadorna confront Franz Conrad von Hotzendorf, an Austro-Hungarian Commander. It quickly became a deadlock that resulted only in costly battles with minimal gains.

Game Mode – Offensive

Isonzo brings a new mode to the WW1 Game Series. Offensive is an entirely new game mode that portrays the "Offensive” nature of the Italian Front. It focuses on how one side pushes against the other in order to capture objectives for days and weeks. This means that the (objectives are taken by one team. The other team focuses on defending the points and preventing the other from moving on to the next sector. To help with balance, attackers are funnelled into specific corridors by a system made up of barbed wire wire lines with designated wire cutting points. This guide has a section called "Roles". It provides a more detailed description about the roles of both attacker and defender players.
Isonzo is unique in that there is no one map, but many maps that make up an offensive. The goal of the Attacking team is to push towards the final sector. Defenders can then hold the Attackers at bay until they run out, and then the Defenders take the Offensive. To win the Offensive Attackers must win one final map. If they have tickets, they can carry some of their tickets from previous maps.

Forward Posts

Isonzo allows you to create forward posts that allow you to move closer to the front. Be aware that these can be removed at any time by the enemy. This will limit your ability to spawn closer to the objective.

    Rifles- Rifles are the primary weapon in Isonzo. They are extremely hard hitting and very useful at long range. Some rifles include a bayonet. This allows for easy melee at close range, without the need to switch weapons.
    Rifle Grenades can be fitted to some rifles with a weapon that can be fired further than the thrown one. These grenades explode when they hit the target and cause less damage than regular grenades.
    Handguns: These small but powerful handguns can be maneuvered easily and are great for clearing out tight spaces. However, they can cause damage that is not as impressive as it should and may need to be shot at enemies.
    Grenades-When thrown grenades explode, dealing severe damage to anyone within a radius of the fuse. If you are unable to throw the grenade after the fuse has been lit, it is still alive and will explode.
    All static weapons are buildable by Engineers and can be sabotaged. The Rifleman role can resupply static weapons with the Ammo Box.
    Mortars – These weapons can fire high explosives with a high-arc ballistic trajectory. They can also shoot over obstacles. You can request spotting from flare gun users.

    Officer Call-Ins

    Officers, Mountaineers, and officers can fire flares into air (with the map to target). Officers may use this map to call in aviation a*sistance, off-map artillery strikes, and gas/smoke a*saults. The ability on that flare point will become stronger if two Officers fire flares in rapid succession. Call ins have their own cooldown. When weaker callins become available first and then stronger tiers, the next one becomes available. The branches are listed below:

    • Artillery Battalion – Call in an a*sortment of artillery hits, either condensed in one point (or use a creeping barrel to drop artilleryshells along a line).
    • Chemical Regiment: Call in smoke or deadly gas to cover your advance and catch any slow or unexpecting enemy off guard.
