Our guide to Steel Division 2 is a collection of valuable gameplay, tips, tactics, information about the types of units and divisions, as well as many other useful suggestions. Steel Division is an RTS that is strongly based on the mechanics of Dynamic Strategic Campaigns. Each unit has a control zone, which moves the front lines and increases the controlled territory. To win, you need to have more strategic points under your control than the enemy. The key is the proper use of troops to control the battlefield.

Unlike many classic RTS games, in Steel Division 2, you don't build a base nor recruit units. Before a battle starts, you replenish your battlegroup. During the game, you call for reinforcements which costs special points. In this game, much attention is paid to the wise management of troops, cooperation between different types of units (the tanks alone won't win a battle) and a strategic approach to the situation on the map. The side that controls the most strategic points on the map wins faster.

Starting Tips

Steel Division 2 is not a typical representative of the RTS game genre. There are a few novelties and mechanics that you should first familiarize yourself with. In this chapter you will find a lot of information about best ways to manage your battlegroup and win every battle. At first you have to avoid simple mistakes, which in SD 2 are very harmful, like sending tanks without recon, or transporting infantry in trucks near enemy units.

  1. Starting tips

Front and strategic points

In these chapters you will learn more about fronts, the unique mechanics in Steel Division 2. This is the dynamic boundary between factions. Units in enemy territory fight worse and are easier targets. You can encircle the enemy and cut him off from the reinforcements. This makes it easier to destroy your opponent, but remember that it works both ways.

Strategic points are important places on the map for strategic reasons - victory depends on your control of such points. If your army has control of such a point, the closer you are to winning. A map usually has many such "flags" that need to be taken over. You don't have to take all the points. All you have to do is get more of them than the enemy. A special clock measures time - the longer you have fewer strategic points, the faster you will lose.

Morale and surrender

This chapter provides basic knowledge about suppressing enemy morale and in what situations individuals can surrender. Your troops can often withstand enemy fire, but their morale can get much worse. In such a situation, the unit becomes less effective and even incapable of fighting if it is under pressure. Additionally, if such a unit is close to enemy units and stands in enemy territory, it can surrender and be excluded from the game. This is an effective tactic against difficult to defeat units such as the Tiger or IS-2.

Experience and leaders

In addition to statistics such as armor and the number of soldiers, each unit has its own level of experience. It is a fixed value and units cannot gain experience during missions. However, leaders are special individuals who can increase the level of experience of their companions as long as they are within reach. In this chapter you will learn more about the bonuses resulting from the experience of troops and leaders.

  1. Leaders and Commanders

Radio and artillery fire

There are many skills and units in the game. Artillery can coordinate its fire if it has a radio and there is an observer unit with a radio near the target. In this way, fire from afar will be accurate and effective.

Destruction of tanks and vehicles

Armored units are a difficult type of opponent. They not only have good and universal weapons, but they also have thick armor, which means that many units can't threaten them in any way. Destroying these units as well as defending your army against the enemy is very important. In this chapter you will learn more about this topic.

Units

Steel Division 2 has a large number of units. Each of them has been assigned to the appropriate category. Every category has its main feature or role to play, e.g. infantry occupies terrain, artillery "crushes" enemy units, reconnaissance detects enemies and planes can play many different roles, but do not affect the front. Learn about each category and type of unit to fully understand their purpose and use their utility advantages on the battlefield.
