Assault Kit Weapon Attachments
Adding to the versatility of the Assault Kit in Bad Company 2 is the ability to use several different types of rifle attachments, the 40MM grenade, smoke grenade, and the shotgun.
40MM grenades are incredibly useful in a myriad of situations. Use them to take out stubborn enemies hiding behind cover, or a group of enemies out in the open. The grenade launcher can also be used to create new paths through a map, blowing holes in walls and taking out other obstructions with ease.
In Rush Mode, the grenade launcher can assist your efforts to destroy and enemy M-COM station in several ways. You can of course use them to clear a room of defenders, but they are also useful for attacking the station directly (they can be destroyed with direct damage) or for bringing down a building housing an objective (this results in an instant destruction).
If the objective is housed in a destructible building, use your 40MM grenades to take out the remaining vertical walls. Eventually, you will bring the building crashing down upon the objective, killing any stubborn defenders still hiding within.
Smoke grenades have multiple uses, as well. The obscuring smoke can be used for cover when planting a charge on an objective, keeping snipers and other defenders from being able to pick you off from range. You can also deploy a series of them to cover the advance of your team.
One of my personal favorite smoke grenade uses is sniper frustration. I love landing one right on top of an enemy sniper, rendering him completely ineffective until the smoke dissipates.
The shotgun is a great way to combine the long-range effectiveness of your assault rifle with the short-range punch of a shotgun. Use your rifle when clearing the outside and roof of a building, then switch to the shotgun attachment when clearing the inside, giving you the ability to kill most close-range defenders or attackers with a single shot.
The Assault Kit can be one of the most enjoyable in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. With unmatched versatility, as well as unlimited ammo and the ability to support teammates, there is the potential to earn huge amounts of experience to go towards those Bad Company 2 unlockables.
