ASYMMETRICAL WARFARE
UNITED STATES
The United States Armed Forces, with state-of-the-art weapons, powerful air support, and napalm sought to destroy the threat of Communism in Vietnam.
NORTH VIETNAM
North Vietnamese forces used stealth, traps, improvised weaponry, coupled with the ability to move with ease through their home front made them a force to be reckoned with.

CONVENTIONAL VS GUERRILLA FORCES

Each of the armies in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam uses different tactics and abilities to gain victory over their enemy. The US Armed Forces use the era's most powerful weapons and conventional military tactics, and can call in gunships, napalm, and recon aircraft to pinpoint and destroy the North Vietnamese forces.

The NVA and Viet Cong, conversely, make use of improvised weapons, traps, ambushes and guerrilla warfare to outwit and outmanoeuvre the enemy, and can make use of the enhanced logistics provided by the Ho Chi Minh trail

DETAIL & AUTHENTICITY

HISTORICAL DETAILS

Period-accurate weapons, uniforms, gear and maps make RS2: Vietnam an accurate, true-to-life representation of the Vietnam War. Careful research and attention to detail has gone into every location, weapon, sound and army depicted in the game.

WEAPON BALLISITICS

In a game where every shot counts, realistic ballistic modelling is vital. Range the enemy, dial in your sights and fire! All weapons are fine-tuned to their real-life counterparts, so whether you're using a shotgun, a sniper rifle or a grenade launcher you will experience a true-to-life, authentic first-person shooter.

DETAILED CHARACTERS

Every soldier has a role on the battlefield, with different weapons, gear and uniforms researched for historical accuracy. Combining these roles tactically and making use of traps, smoke and loadouts can give your team the advantage in controlling the flow of battle.

WEAPON HANDLING

Weapons handling has been updated to include recoil-induced sight misalignment, to accurately depict the automatic weapons of the era. Weapons also have features such as collapsible stocks, multiple fire modes and detachable bayonets, allowing for a variety of playstyles.

JUNGLE

The lush jungles of Vietnam were a prime opportunity for ambushes, hidden VC camps and deadly traps, laid in the thick undergrowth. Watch your step!

RURAL

Rice paddies and farmland made for a beautiful backdrop against which many of Vietnam's bloodiest battles were fought. Open fields make for long lines of sight, so be prepared to pop some smoke.

URBAN

The towns and cities of Vietnam often played host to intense urban firefights, and building-to-building CQB through the homes and businesses of the native Vietnamese.
