    Global Warfare The Military Units

    Global Warfare Build a barracks and rally point to begin making troops and use the rally point to send them on missions. You’ll require different structures and technology to build all the troop types in the game. Basic infantry and supply trucks will get you started but you’ll need units that are more powerful. Here are the other units you can build and the requirements for each of them.

    Sniper Units – These are strong against other infantry units but weak against other units such as tanks. Build a level two barracks, and research level 1 optics to build your first sniper unit.

    Anti-Tank Units – use these specialized infantry against tanks or mobile Sam units. They are weak against other infantry in the game. Build a Level 3 barracks, level 2 factory, and level 1 military science to get your first anti-tank unit.
