» Basic GDI Characters

Soldier ($0)
This is your standard, basic trooper, which every GDI player spawns as. You have a silenced pistol and an automatic rifle, as well as a small amount of C4 explosives. Your rifle holds 100rounds in each clip and is fairly effective against low-tech enemy infantry. If you come face to face with a vehicle as one of these then try and plant your C4 on the side of it, otherwise just run. In a team game like Renegade it's important that your side has a good balance of players in the first round or two as 6 engineers will not help your cause, but 1/2 will. You don't have an abundance of health when you're a basic trooper so try and stay under cover when you aren't moving, rocks and trees are great and even if they don't provide much physical protection from shelling, if they cover you enough so that the enemy can't see you then they won't bother firing in your direction in the first place.
Rating: 5/10

Shotgun Soldier ($0)
Now this may cause controversy, but so be it. The shotgun soldier is not really worth bothering with, because of it's slow rate of fire and the fact that for it to be anything like effective, you must be pretty close to your target. It may have limited use, but there are a few points worth remembering with it: If you DO get close enough to your target, then often if you aim for the chest 1 shot can kill basic characters. Although several can be needed against more advanced characters which have more health and more armour. Use it in confined spaces, such as tunnels where you are unlikely to miss your target and they cannot dodge your spray of shells. If you can find a box/rock to hide behind while you attempt to stall an early game, enemy assault, then crouch behind it and stand and fire, then duck. Repeat this process and you should find that your enemy is either halted in their tracks, damaged enough for team-mates to finish them off quickly, or re-spawning in their base. Do not try and use this weapon to charge an open area, your enemy will simply laugh in your face before one of their standard soldiers rips you apart. Remember, if you are intent on using the shotgun soldier, don't try and be the next Rambo, it will result in a quick death and leave your team one man down during the important early game attack.
Rating: 3/10

Grenadier ($0)
This is probably the best early game choice of character if you want to rack up some points. Buy this and begin pounding your enemy's harvester, if you can arrange for a friend to select an engineer and constantly cover/repair you. If two skilled grenadiers are working on a harvester with support, they can rack up some decent points for their side which enables earlier purchasing of the Medium tank, which is widely regarded as the best vehicle in the game. When using the grenadier (as with any infantry character) use your surroundings - boxes, trees, rocks. Take cover behind them and fire your looping grenade shells over them if you know where the enemy is and if you don't then only protrude your weapon around the side of your chosen cover to give you maximum protection while not sacrificing pressure on the enemy. The role of grenadier in Renegade and in real-life is a support one. Let the regular soldiers lead the line of attack, remain a couple of seconds behind them with the engineer and begin calibrating the angle of elevation you will require to hit the (probably) entrenched enemy as soon as you spot them.
Rating: 7/10

Engineer ($0)
The engineer is a vital addition to every team, whether it be the first base assault or mid-battle. It's ability to repair teammates, their vehicles and plant that devastating C4 makes it an excellent choice. However, you must not think that as an engineer you can 'go it alone', far from it in fact. The engineer is based around co-ordination and teamplay, you must repair your friends and they will cover you as you only have the standard pistol to defend yourself with. When repairing tanks as they advance towards the enemy base, try and keep covered either by rocks, or walls, remember you have to be fairly close to repair teammates, but not right on top of them, so use that to your advantage and don't stray out into the open unless you absolutely have to.
