R.U.S.E. Wiki

This dug-in Outpost is deployed from a British HQ and set up to extend the visible perimeter of the King's territory.

Armed with a fixed .303 caliber Vickers machine gun, this outpost provides moderate defense against infantry, and has a small degree of effectiveness against Engineering trucks. The Outpost's primary use is its Recon-range perception as an early-warning system of enemy invasion.

Strategies and Tactics

  • Put these units where the line of sight hits forest so they see units trying to setup ambushes
  • Put these units near the Exits of towns for Extra Defense
  • Think about putting other Outposts to support it (Especially if you're playing a 2v2, in which case a Siegfried Blockhaus would do pretty well).

Pros & Cons

!OBS! the gun in the picture is a MG 34, although it's suppose to be a Vickers or Vickers-Berthier.

+Recon building

+Cheap for a defensive building.

-It's fragile and lacks the firepower of the german or US counter part.

  • It will even have a hard time defeating a Ha-Go
  • They do (~almost~) the same dps it outranges them by 50m. But needs a 2 seconds head start to win
