For UNITAF members, our general policies and SOPs do also apply here.
Our rules here
We expect you to behave this way, and we would like to especially highlight our code of conduct:
- I am a part of UNITAF, a group of people with diverse backgrounds and cultures. I will show respect to all members.
- In order to facilitate the administrative activities and operational leadership of UNITAF I will respect and uphold the chains of command.
- I will make a conscious effort to learn our SOPs over time and apply them.
- I will strive to demonstrate good sportsmanship and integrity at all times.
- If conflict should arise between members, I will step back, inform a member of Staff or a NCO and abstain from retaliating.
- If I believe a member did something well, I will praise them in public.
- If I believe a member did something wrong, I will talk it out and correct it in private.
- I will never forget that I am a member of UNITAF, a member of one team with one goal.
Note: The "Rifleman" Role can equip Items of Light Anti-Tank, Medium Anti-Tank, Anti-Air, or Automatic Rifleman
For UNITAF members, our SOPs are the same as during our other missions.

UNITAFs mission is to liberate the map of the enemy. Initially the enemy will hold all sectors and we start with a limited amount of resources. By strategically taking over enemy sectors to gain access to more resources and unlock better vehicles to use.
Resources and Measures
You can see these on the right-hand side of your screen if you are in one of our FOBs.
|Name||Icon||Purpose||How to get more?|
|Supplies||Supplies logo||Used for base building and purchasing of assets||Capture factories or find them in an enemy sector and transport them to one of our FOBs|
|Ammo||Red Bullets||Used when purchasing vehicles and hiring AI soldiers||Capture military bases|
|Fuel||Olive Fuel Can||Used by our vehicles||Capture fuel depots|
|Population Cap||Pop Cap Icon||Max number of soldiers we can have in the mission. Players & AI.||This is static|
|Alert Level||Colour changing exclamation mark||Measure of how fortified enemy sectors are going to be and frequency and power of counter attacks on our sectors||Do a secondary mission|
|Civilian Support||Civilian Support Icon||Measure of how much the local population likes us.||Do not kill civilians or damage their property. Liberate sectors and healing injured civilians in active sectors will increase civilian support.|
|Intel Level||Blue Star||Used to start secondary missions||Bring captured enemies back to base, find Intel documents in enemy sectors or do a search & rescue mission|
Types of sectors
You can see these on the map. If they are blue, they are controlled by us. If they are red, they are controlled by the enemy.
|Capital||Our primary objectives||These are heavily fortified. Expect QRF|
|Cities||Small to medium sizes cities|
|Factories||They generate Supply, Ammo & Fuel||Very nice to have.|
|Military bases||They give us access to bigger vehicles||Heavily defended. Highly equipped.|
|Radio Towers||Taking radio towers will increase QRF response time nearby||Ideal for solo or small groups play|
Secondary objectives can be accessed by using your scroll wheel in a friendly FOB.
Two types of missions allow you to decrease the "Alert Level" of the enemy. These cost intelligence:
|FOB Hunt||Destroy an enemy FOB||Find red circle on map. Find the FOB within. Destroy the containers.||Reduces enemy alert level by 40%|
|Convoy Hijack||Destroy an enemy convoy||Find convoy route on map. Find convoy. Destroy it.||Reduces enemy alert level slightly and will drop ammo boxes.|
Additionally, there is a third secondary objective, which will reward Intel for completing:
|Search and Rescue||Evacuate two downed pilots||Find circle on map. Find the the pilots. Bring them back to one of our FOBs.||Awards Intel|
The Liberation play style is more mobile than what we do on official ops. This means you are going to be running around a lot, with fewer breaks. Plan your loadouts accordingly.
Vehicles can be bought at any FOB, given the required Supplies, Ammo, and Fuel are present. Do your best to use them in a safe manner, as the cost of replacement quickly mounts, and inform the other players if you want to make a purchase.
Is the enemy bringing to much stuff to deal with?
Do a FOB hunt already!
