In-game description

The Mortar is a long range launcher which fires Mortar Shells over obstacles. It can only be fired from a crouched or prone position. It is best used against fortifications, such as Foxholes, Pillboxes, Gun Turrets, and Half-tracks. It has a maximum range of 80 meters and a minimum of 45 meters. To fire it, you must reload a shell with R, crouch, aim with RMB, adjust distance with Mouse Wheel, and fire with LMB. You can switch ammo type by pressing F.

Crafting[]

The Mortar is obtained via production in a Factory.

    • A shell that ignites midair and illuminates a large area, revealing enemy targets.

Tips & Notes[]

  • When equipped, the mortar tube will significantly slow the user's movement and turn radius. It is recommended to switch to your secondary weapon to re-position before firing again.
  • Its main advantage is firing from a distance. Keep yourself behind the front line to greatly increase your chance of survival.
  • A mortar's fire can be seen through the night, like gunshots.
  • Mortar Shells do not stack, so it is imperative that a mortar crew be well supplied by a logistics team.
  • Predict enemy movement as the shells have a 1-4 second travel time based on distance.
  • Remember what mortars sound like, as it is easy to tell if you are under attack by them and need to retreat.
  • Adjust your shots by taking wind into account by checking the flags on foxholes and other garrisoned structures.
  • Use the 'F' key to select the shell type to load.


Historical Reference[]

The design and icon for the Cremari Mortar appear to be based off the Japanese Type 89 Mortar.
