    =============================================================================
    II) About Me And Why I wrote this FAQ
    =============================================================================
    
     My Name is Elwell aka [OveR-LorD], i am a huge FPS (First Person Shooter) 
    fan. This Is my first solo public FAQ and i hope it fits into what everyone 
    wants. I know there is the single player side to this game but people already 
    have walkthroughs and official guides and so on, so here is my Multiplayer 
    Liuetenant FAQ.
    
     For those of you who play RTCW (Return To Castle Wolfenstein) online you may
    recognise me as the player "OveR-LorD". 
     I have made this FAQ for the following reasons
    * No one else has.
    * I wish i had one when i started
    * I got bored at home so what better way to spend my day exept playing
      this game.
    
     I am currently writing about 7 other FAQs which i am hoping to post on 
    www.gameFAQs.com and www.NeoSeeker.com very soon, these FAQs include 
    "Aliens Versus Predator" and "Gunman Chronicles" and many more. I do most of 
    my FAQs with the help of other people because it makes life so much easier 
    so if you want to help me or offer advice to me on an FAQ please send me 
    your ideas and i will try and get back to you and of course credit will be 
    given where credit is due.
    
    
    
    
    =============================================================================
    III) Overview To "Return To Castle Wolfenstein"
    =============================================================================
    
     Return to Castle Wolfenstein is the sequal to the big hit classic
    "Wolfenstein" which most people will know as the first ever first person
    shooter, and so you should the game was (To Put It simply) Brilliant.
    Return to Castle Wolfenstein however has been made much later on and i will
    list the changes because of that.
    * Much Much better graphics
    * Much Better Sounds and Sound quality
    * Much better level design, for example Stairs!
    * Video Scenes to set the story
    * A proper story line
    * A brilliant atmosphere on the levels
    This all together make Return To Castle Wolfenstein a world beater.
    The Game is  set in the War and you have been captured by the Nazis and 
    have to escape
    (I know there is more but i dont want to spoil anything for anyone).
    
    
    
    =============================================================================
    IV) Overview To Multiplayer "Castle Wolfenstein"
    =============================================================================
    
     The Multiplayer section to "Return To Castle Wolfenstein" is very good
    it is split into teams of Allies and Axis (Nazis) and one team must defend 
    and one team must attack and clear objectives to win. Imagine if you will a 
    cross between Unreal Tournaments Assault mode, Team Fortress Classic and
    Counterstrike and you will get the idea. Anyway there are four classes to
    each side, these classes being Soldiers, Medics, Engineers, and Lieutenants
    and each character plays a key role to the game as each ones skills are used
    in a game.
     You can however play a game with just Lieutenants and win but the others
    are so much fun to be aswell it makes the game much more fun and possible.
    
    
    
    =============================================================================
    V) About the Lieutenant
    =============================================================================
    
     You may hear a lot of explosions in a game with the Lieutenant,
    the Lieutenants skill is that he can throw a flair and call an Airstrike.
    The Lieutenant is a key character in long games as he can also drop
    ammunition packs for his team to pick up which is very usefull. 
    The Lieutenant carries six items, these are a Knife, A Lugar or Colt
    (handgun), a Thompson, MP40, or Sten (Sub-Machine Gun), Pineapple or
    Potatoe Masher (Grenades), a Flair Canister (For Aiming And Calling
    An Airstrike), and packs of Ammunition.
    
    
    
    
    =============================================================================
    VI) ALLIED Weapons & Equipment
    =============================================================================
    
    *KNIFE*
    
    The Knife is your bog standard Weapon which you only use when you have
    ran out of ammo, it is thrust into your enemy repeatedly until he is dead.

    *COLT*
    
    The Colt Is your Handgun, it is a little bit more powerfull than the Knife
    and is very accurate at a long distance, it is standard Allies issue
    and is used by every class.

    TIP - Two Colts can be used at the same time and is great for taking
          on Enemies (Only Sinlge Player Without Cheating)
    
    
    *THOMPSON*
    
    The Thompson is the Lieutenants Sub-Machine Gun, it fires quite fast but needs
    frequent reloads which can be a bit of a pain in the ehat of battle, but its
    the best Gun The Engineer has.

    TIP - This Is more powerful and accurate than the MP40
          (Usefull in Single Player Games or As Soldier Or Lieutenant)
    
    
    *MP40*
    
    The MP40 is not that powerfull but its fast rate of fire makes up for it
    quite well it is the standard Nazi weapon in the Single Player mode and
    players will probably have more practice with this weapon through the game.

    TIP - Fire in small bursts for better accuracy, after a while the accuracy
          is very poor on automatic fire.
    
    
    *STEN*
    
    The Sten is very powerfull and is very usefull it can kill an opponent in
    less shots than the MP40 and Luger even though it uses the same ammo. It
    will seem pritty bad at first because it overheats, but dont let that fool
    you this gun has to be the best SMG (Sub Machine Gun) in the game with
    practice.

    _____________|__________________|
    
    TIP - The STEN overheats very quickly so use it in short bursts for the best
          effects in battle, and is very good when used accuratly.
    
    *Grenade*
    
    Your Standard Grenade, Aim Hold Fire for a second and let go, it isnt hard.
    dont hold it for more than 4 seconds as it blows up on 5. Grenades are very
    useful for making enemies take alternate routes, blowing up that annoying
    black barbed wire, and just for giving a few unsuspecting enemies a scare.
    It is best used around a few enemies.

    TIP - Stay away from these Grenades as they have a good blast radius and
          can make your teams medic's life a misery.
    
    
    *Flair Canister*
    
    Your Canisters cannot attack but are needed to call an airstrike which is the
    equivalent to about 8 grenades exploding in a straight line.
    Just throw as if it were a grenade and watch the flairs colour wave off into
    the air and await radio confirmation of an airstrike
    
    TIP - Do Not try and call an Airstrike Indoors as the plane cannot see the
          target flair from the sky.
        - Blue Flair smoke is Allies, Red Flair Smoke is Axis (Nazi)
    
    
    *Ammunition Packs*
    
    The Ammo packs are very very useful as soldiers and all classes can run out
    of ammo quite quickly and will need support so dropping extra ammo for your
    team to pick up is quite valuable.

    VIII) Tactics
    ==============================================================================
    
    Lieutenants are ok in battle but there better used behind the soldiers so
    they can supply ammo and can call the odd airstrike on the enemy.
    
    Scatter Ammo packs around your teams main spawning points to give your troops
    a better collection of ammo sto start with.
    
    Dont call an airstrike if your team is going to be where the bombs will drop
    i know this is common sense but it happens a few times in games so just be
    careful.
