    This guide/info manual is written by Disnoxxio I will add pictures to visualize it later on.


    - The kit:

    The kit seems to have 2 names and those are either Specialist or Breacher, I will keep with the term Breacher for this little info manual. The kit is a so called ''Limited/Special'' kit you are able to take the Breacher kit (as of this version 1.2.1) when you have at least 4 players in the squad. Unlike some other kits you can take the kit back immediately after you died. This means if you have the kit selected and you died you spawn in with the same kit without having to wait for an amount of time to retrieve your kit.


    - Inventory:

    Just like every special kit the breacher comes with inventory not every kit has and makes the breacher unique for the game and therefore essential to the regular infantry squad. Besides the grenade, knife/bayonet, patches you get 3 ''special'' objects. In order:

    - The Shotgun:

    The breacher kit is the only kit in the game that gives you the shotgun, this kit is a very important kit and incredibly useful and diverse in the right hands. The shotgun is one of the 3 items that gives you the ability to breach objects in game such as Doors/Fences. These doors or fences can be shot down by one or two shots on the right spot. In the case of doors that means on the doorknob. In case of the fences a slug on the chains in the middle will do.


    Not only is the shotgun able to breach doors and fences but also can the shotgun destroy crates dropped by enemies, shoot in the middle wooden part of big crates and the crates will destroy after 1/2/3 shots (it differs).


    The shotgun is also very useful in CQC "Close quarter combat'', one slug on close distance will often do the job. Another special ability for the breacher is the one being able to arrest civilians by shooting them. This is in the game mode insurgency, instead of arresting them with the chains you can arrest them by shooting, this again makes you valuable asset to the squad.

    - Grappling Hook:


    This is the 2nd item you will get together with the breacher kit, the grappling hook is the item you only get with a spotter kit and the breacher kit and in insurgency as a civillian. The kit can be used to rope over walls. Rope up to surfaces above you. Or decend from a building.

    By selecting the grappling hook in your inventory you will be able to throw it up by simply clicking the left mouse button.

    Once the hook is hooked/attached to the surface above or below you the player can press (Default) E to climb up like you would do on a ladder, by pressing (Default) shift you can descend faster from a rope.
    HINT: If you are using the rope to get down of a high surface, carefully go to the edge of it, choose your rope and right click on it. This will just let down the rope instead of throwing it away (which probably will leave you without a rope on roof crying for you mama).

    If you are using the rope to get down of a high surface, carefully go to the edge of it, choose your rope and right click on it. This will just let down the rope instead of throwing it away (which probably will leave you without a rope on roof crying for your mama).

    If everyone is over or up/down the surface the breacher can retrieve their rope by pressing (Default) G.

    If you do not retrieve it the rope will stay (1.2.1 manual info) 3 minutes before it dissapears. At that moment the breacher will not have a rope to select.

    - Timed Fuse C4 Stick:


    The third unique item of the breacher kit is the C4 timed fuse, next to the Combat Engineer kit the Breacher is het only one who gets c4 in his/hers inventory.

    This is considered one of the most important items for the breacher and among the squad, since with the c4 you are able to destory vehicles/FOBS (forward outpost base)/Stationary placed assets like mortars etc.


    The C4 in PR does not work like C4 in for example BF4, you do not just simply drive by and throw a c4 on a fat tank, it will do few damage and it takes to long.


    C4's are used to mainly destroy stationary assets like Fobs/Mortars/TOWS/Anti-Air. Walking up to the FOB you can get your C4 out and prepare. The preparing fase will take 10 seconds it will immediatly plant the C4 on the FOB/Asset. Another 20 seconds are required for it to explode.

    The fob will explode and turns into a pile of dirt afer a few seconds of waiting. DO NOT place a second c4 if the static of the fob is still normal and looks fine. The fob will go down after a matter of seconds and turn into a pile of dirt. This will make the fob unspawnable for the enemy team.

    However this does not make the fob unable to dig up again, if you really want to be sure that they will not respawn/redig it then place another C4 when it is a pile of dirt and place the c4. The fob will completely disappear and they cannot rebuild it.

    You also want to make sure that the crates around it are down so a squad leader cannot just simply build another fob on the same place again :wink:, for this you can use the shotgun like explained earlier in this manual.


    - Some general information about the kit


    - You can use the C4 on other vehicles, most of the transport light vehicles will just go down after one c4, but armored vehicles will take at least 2 of them to go fully down. If you got balls like the Hulk you might want to do it like Finrar but these cases are quite rare and most of the time the c4 is being used like described above.


    - The breacher kit is a kit that often gets assigned as a point man, stay close to the squad leader since throwing hooks destroying fobs are a matter of quick handling. You want to stay with the squad and preferably with the squad leader to optimally move and use the hooks/c4/shotgun quick and clean.


    - Think yourself, the squad leader is not there to micromanage you're behavior on placing a c4 and using your items, show initiative and make sure that a FOB area is clear of crates and piles of dirt so you did your job like you should.



    The info got a bit longer than expected but I think I got the basics of being a breacher covered, feel free to post suggestions or additions, also my excuse for typos. At this moment my windows seems to not correct my English and it's not my native language. I will try to correct it later on and also will add pictures and movies to show what is described in this manual.

    So a breacher can shoot a chain link fence with a shotgun and create a hole in it?

    Also, for factions like Russia who do not have Shotguns, use grenades to take out crates and get ammo from rifleman. If you have the time, check the kits near the crate(s) for "Special" kits. If any are found hide them.

    If you shoot at the lock of the chains, the fence will open. Only the green gates though.
    I will post pictures later.

    EDIT:

    Already thought I missed it, since I was about to write that down, slipped away I guess.

    This guide is nice.How about a guide on using LAT and a HAT kit.Since these two are hard to learn and are valuable.

    Pro tip: shotgun has no deviation. Mark the middle of your screen and enjoy 1-shoting everybody closer than 60m, you don't even need to stand still or anything. The bad thing is that target requisition is very hard because of the hurr-durr kick the shotgun has so don't miss.
