Brothers in Arms 3: Sons of War is the latest in the new World War II FPS series, the tenth game in the BiA series and the third mobile game. This iOS, Android and Windows Phone shooter has you as a soldier moving from checkpoint to checkpoint, fighting off Nazis, and defending your base while trying to capture buildings that they have taken. Along the way you can earn dog tags, medals, and all kinds of new weapons from back then. Read on for some tips and tricks for Brothers in Arms 3: Sons of War!
Your weapon has an auto aiming feature and while it can be useful, especially when you are shooting somebody from a long distance, it can be tough to get it to go for a headshot, which is the hit that does the most damage. Your best bet is to aim it slightly above the head of whoever you are trying to shoot. When you do this, it will angle right back down and automatically aim at the head of your target.
Automatic weapons such as the STEN can be rather difficult to aim as well. When you’re firing an automatic gun, slowly aim down as you shoot in order to keep the sight in line with your target. Otherwise the aim will run away from you and the gun sight will move upward with every shot.
You start off with Jacob Hall as your only brother, but as you continue to play through the mission levels you will unlock brothers, and any brother that you have in your fire team will have a special ability that they can use. Jacob, for example, can call an air strike in, making it easy to knock off many targets at the same time or to take out big vehicles. Use each brother’s ability at the time when it will provide the biggest advantage and swap brothers when a different ability will give a bigger advantage.
There are a number of achievements that you can complete that will learn you dog tags and medals as a reward for doing so. Dog tags are the main currency of the game, while medals are the premium currency of the game. You can use medals to purchase a VIP status, which has varying rewards and lasts for anywhere between two days and 30 days, depending on if you have bronze, silver, or gold VIP status. Both currencies are also used to purchase new weapons or to upgrade your existing weapons.
If you are stuck on a difficult stage, go to a different type of mission to earn some dog tags so that you can upgrade your weapon. In addition, try switching your main type of weapon because different weapons work better for different missions. For example, machine guns work well when you are facing off against a large number of enemies, while rifles and a sniper rifles work better against smaller numbers of enemies that are further away and harder to hit.
