A simple hole dug into the ground to provide infantry with makeshift cover from enemy fire.
In-game description

A defensive structure dug with a shovel ShovelIcon.png to protect a player from incoming fire.


The Foxhole takes 19 hits with a shovel to dig and is much faster to build than a Trench. They can only be dug in diggable areas, meaning that they cannot be used in cities or other areas that prevent digging. They are immune to Small Arms damage, but can be filled in the same way trenches are, with the TrenchFillInIcon.png icon.


It is great for if you need quick cover on the front from artillery, especially compared to the time it takes to build a trench. However, when it comes to quick cover from enemy fire Sandbags are likely your best bet if they are available due to their ease of setup. Another worry with Foxholes is Grenades, as they are fairly easy to lob a grenade into. If an enemy manages to drop a grenade into your Foxhole, you are likely to be unable to get out in time so be careful with placement. In addition, the enemy is able to use your Foxhole just as well as you are if they get to it, so build carefully.

Like with trenches getting in a foxhole protects you from the cold and slowly warms you up during a Snow Storm.


It replaced the Manned Foxhole that came before it. It is the second iteration of the Foxhole, and is the namesake of the game.
