Close Quarters Battle
It's 17:00 GMT on Thursday March 31, 2011 - THE CQB ALPHA IS HERE! ...





Remember, you still need Wolfenstein:Enemy Territory to play CQB (also found on our downloads page under "TCE")!

We hope you will enjoy this alpha since it was a long time in the making! Please keep in mind that this is an alpha and that there might be some bugs. Please report any errors/suggestions/feedback on our CQB forum.

Other things to note of this alpha are:

  • No cross hair
  • Most realistic iron sight, reflex sight, and scope simulation
  • Real ballistic tracing including bullet drop
  • Minimum GPU requirements: Nvidia 6800GT or ATI X800
  • Win and Linux only
  • About 300 Megs download (plus W:ET)
  • Only Bodycount (TDM)
  • One map
  • Game is locked to sv_pure 1 and sv_official 1

We mentioned the customized weapons load out feature in yesterday's news. Now with CQB upon us, let's look at some other features that are new to CQB from TCE:


Freelook

Freelook is probably the biggest and most unique feature in CQB. It's when your player model can look from side to side while keeping your weapon in the original forward position. Keep in mind that you can still shoot while in freelook and that the more you move to the side, the more your weapon will shift/sway.

Freelook is a bind in the game, so you can choose whether or not to use this feature.


Compass

The compass in CQB serves a different purpose than seen before in TCE.

It now will show you the location of your team mates (indicated by a white triangle). If they are being fired upon, the enemy's location is also shown in the form of a red dot.


Now there is no excuse for teamkilling. ;)


Perks

One of the main differences between TCE and CQB is the perk system. With the perk system, certain abilities (like lean, freeclimb) aren't default - but can be selected to create a unique player profile.

Based on your weapons load out, you can (at most) select only 1 perk in each category.

Perks can be selected in the deployment menu.
