Getting Started With The Elite Squad Basics

Tom Clancy's Elite Squad guide tips cheatsIn Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad, you play as a commander and lead the team of soldiers to fight enemies in plenty of challenging game modes; starting with the campaign mode, then events, arena, daily ops, guild war, underworld, and more to earn rewards such as crafting material, training tokens, XP, auto-win token, intel, and more. Read the in-game currencies guide below for more info. 

For the battle, you can deploy up to five soldiers and two tactics(combat orders) of your choice. The soldiers use their basic skills, active skills, and passive skills on their own to fight the opposition. Tactics should be interjected manually, by you, during the battle. As you gain XP and level up, the new content; game modes, functions, etc. will be accessible. 

Guide To Soldiers In Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad

Tom Clancy's Elite Squad guide tips cheatsThere are two types of soldiers; heroes and villains. Both these types of heroes are classified into three main roles; attacker, defender, and specialist. Attacker role soldiers excel in inflicting high damage to the opposition fighters. Defender role soldiers lead from the front and use shield + defensive skills to protect comrades. Specialist role soldiers possess abilities such as healing(to restore health), granting buffs to comrades, making enemies stun for a few turns, etc. At the upper-left corner of their profile card, you can check the role icon. 

All of them have a unique set of abilities. Go to the main lobby -> tap the soldier button on the lower-left -> tap on the soldier to check his profile -> on the profile page, you can check his abilities.

Getting New Characters In Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad

To unlock or get new soldier characters in Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad, you will need their “intel”. For example – to get “ASH”, you will need x160 Ash intel. You can check the best characters in this Elite Squad tier list.  The higher the star level of a soldier, the more intel you will need to unlock him/her. 

  • 1-Star Soldier – x15 intel
  • 2-Star Soldier – x35 intel
  • 3-Star Soldier – x60 intel
  • 4-Star Soldier – x100 intel
  • 5-Star Soldier – x160 intel

Go to the soldier menu -> check the complete list of soldiers and their star level – also, you will see how many intel/shards are required to unlock a particular character. Tap on the “find” option to check how to get a specific soldier’s intel. Usually, you get intel from the O.R.B. Depot. (Main lobby -> O.R.B. depot -> spend the gold bars or cash or other currency to get the boxes containing intel). Or some characters’ intel can be farmed by playing the campaign and event modes. 

Tips To Get Stronger In Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad

You must improve the soldier’s skill rating if you want him/her to perform well in combat. Let’s check out all the ways to get stronger in Time Clancy’s Elite Squad: –

Have a balanced team set-up – go with two defender role characters, two attacker role characters, and one supporter role character with healing skill. Or, adjust according to the stage; go with more attacker role soldiers if you need more firepower, more defenders to be defensive, and specialist with CC skills that can stun or control the enemies with the abilities. It would be good if you read the soldiers’ abilities details – having great knowledge of their skills help you to build the team based on the requirement. 

Train the soldiers – training tokens are required to train the soldiers. You can get them by doing the campaign missions. Do note that the soldier’s training level can not exceed the commander/account level. For example – if you/commander is at level 5, then soldiers can not reach level 6. 

Star-Up/Rank-Up – this is another way to make soldiers develop further and raise the stats. To star-up/rank-up, you will need the same soldier intel. Go to the soldier’s profile page -> on the lower-right, above the train button, tap the find option to check the source of getting intel for that particular soldier. 

Gear-Up: – gears improve the damage, armor, and ability power stats of the soldiers. From the campaign missions, you will get the “gear crafting material items” that are used in crafting the gears. Do note that soldiers equip specific gears and each one requires different crafting material items. Go to the soldier profile page -> in the lower-left corner, tap the gear slot -> equip. Tap on the crafting material item to know the acquisition method. 

Fill all the gear slots and increase the gear grade level. Powerful gears are unlocked at higher-grades. 

Unlock weapon/gun: – all the soldiers in Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad carry a specific weapon available in multiple grades; common, rare, epic, and legendary. On the soldier profile page, tap the switch icon on the weapon/gun -> on the next page, you can craft high-grade weapons once you have enough material items; you will need blueprints to craft these weapons. Obtain blueprints from the campaign missions and events.
