  • When constructing Emplacements, wire off key locations so infantry with Shrecks cannot take them out easily. This is especially effective with the Bofors AA gun, where they are great at range against infantry.
  • If upgraded to a Detection and Disposal squad, Sappers are able to lay Demolition Charges and detect mines. Thanks to a change made in the 2.300 Patch, they can now move independently through enemy territory, without the need to have a Lieutenant nearby. They compliment Recon Sections very nicely because of this. Which is great for when you need to build defences quickly after Recon Sections seize new territory.
  • Unlike the Panzershreck, the Recoilless Rifle, or the Bazooka, the PIAT fires upward and on top of the target. This means that if the target is stationary, the chances of it being hit are increased a great deal.
    • Because of the angle of which the PIAT fires, it can shoot over shot-blocking object such as buildings and hedgerows.
  • PIATs seem to perform better in buildings, when they are firing downwards.
  • The best way to hit an enemy with a PIAT is to have a Bren LMG infantry section button the vehicle so it holds still, giving your Sappers a chance to hit it.
  • Always place your PIAT Sappers in trenches or buildings whenever fighting Tanks or vehicles, as Sappers go down pretty quickly when taking fire.


A Sapper is an individual usually in British or Commonwealth military service. Called Combat Engineers by the Americans, Pioneers by the Germans, Génies by the French and Sapers by the Poles, a Sapper may perform any of a variety of tasks under combat conditions. Such tasks typically include bridge-building, laying or clearing minefields, demolitions, field defenses as well as building, road and airfield construction and repair. In other words, the sapper's tasks now involve facilitating movement of allied forces and impeding movement of the enemy's. Sapper (abbreviated Spr) is the Royal Engineers' equivalent of Private. This is also the case within the Canadian, Royal Australian Engineers and Royal New Zealand Engineers. The term Sapper was introduced in 1856 when the Corps of Royal Sappers and Miners was amalgamated with the officer Corps of Royal Engineers to form the Corps of Royal Engineers.
