keyholed units


Recommended Posts

A unit that is keyholed mean it is deployed in a position that gives it LOS to only a certain spot on the map, such as a bridge or crossroad. Likewise, it can only be seen by an enemy unit that moves onto that spot.

Its a good way to keep your onboard guns alive, and to prevent them from firing on the flamethrower it spotted 2km away.

You can practice this at home : )

You look through the keyhole and see a narrow field of view going as far as you can see. Now go 5ft from the other side of the door and see how much you can see through the keyhole!!

Kingfisher should have added that you need to give cover arc orders and ranges also - keyholing does not stop your unit firing at silly targets!!

Amen - and don't forget to use a shortened cover arc to let the cheap-lure units pass through the LOF unharmed, then expand it in a turn or two to nail the really meaty stuff.
