Western Frontier[edit]

  • Rifle Grunt
    • Armed With: M17 Fully Automatic Assault Rifle (called H-16 in Battalion Wars 2)
    • Combat Role: Long Range Anti-Infantry (Weaker then other types of infantry, but is usually your most numerous unit. Hold the A button to fire - your weapon will reload itself automatically when your magazine is empty, or if you go a few seconds without firing your weapon and the magazine is not full.)
  • Assault
    • Armed With: Belt Fed M70 Heavy Caliber Machine Gun (called H-70 in Battalion Wars 2)
    • Combat Role: Mid Range Anti-Infantry, Light Anti-Armor/Anti-Aircraft (Stronger and effective against Light Armor but less accurate beyond Medium-Range. Hold the A Button to fire. As you fire, your weapon warms up, allowing for a higher rate of fire. However, your weapon will also jam if fired for too long - fire in short bursts to maintain a good rate of fire.)
  • Mortar
    • Armed With: "Groundhog" 50mm Parabolic Fused Grenade Launcher
    • Combat Role: Long Range Support. Can Engage Infantry and Vehicles From Behind Cover. (Damage and Explosion Radius increased but may explode if charged for too long.)
  • Flame
    • Armed With: H2-2 "Thermidor" High-Pressure Incendiary Projector
    • Combat Role: Short Ranged Anti-Infantry/Open Vehicles. (Highly effective against tightly clustered infantry. Works very well against infantry in cover. Very ineffective against armored vehicles. Hold the A button down to fire, take care not to overheat the weapon. Rapidly tapping the A button works well.)
  • Bazooka
    • Armed With: H1-A1 Low-Recoil Rocket Propelled Projectile Launcher
    • Combat Role: Mid-Range Anti-Armor. (Hold the A button to charge up a shot. The longer you charge the shot, the more velocity, range, and power the shot has. Infantry quite usually dodge, however a fully charged shot at point-blank range can kill or cripple an infantry unit in one hit.)
  • Missile
    • Armed With: IS-III Radar-Guided Silverfish Surface-to-Air Missile Launcher
    • Combat Role: Anti-Aircraft (Hold the A button to charge up your weapon. When fully charged, you can fire 5 shots. Missiles home in on aircraft, but are widely inaccurate against ground targets.)
