Get Started – The Basics – Black Command – The Whole Concept
Before we move to the main guide, tips, cheats & strategy part, let’s take a look at the basics first. In Black Command game, you play as a commander and give the instructions to the mercs in the battle. The concept of this game is quite simple; first, you hire the mercs. Mercs are the main characters in Black Command game. And unlike other games, you can not revive the killed mercs. Of course, you can hire them anytime for money.
In most of the battles, you have to destroy the enemy forts, HQ or rescue the hostage. We will go deep into the battle details in the guide part below. Upon getting the victory, you earn money or weapons. Killed mercs would not join you in the next war. You must send them back to their home to free up barracks(Barracks capacity is limited). And hire more mercs to fill up the empty slots.
Another important thing in Black Command game is ammo. In each mission, you have limited ammo. And you must use ammo wisely and to play the turn, you must meet the minimum ammo requirement. You can resupply ammo using gold/ammo crate or skip your turn(Read the battle guide below).
In addition to the money and weapons, you also earn XP or mercs in the team gain XP(required to level up). As you gain XP, your PMC level will increase and new features such as PMC stats, sponsors, skill manual, and more.
In Black Command game, gold is the premium in-game currency. You can use it to buy premium items or in resupplying the ammo or in the battle when the situation got worse+to increase the chances of getting weapons from arms network. You can earn gold by completing the tasks. Here’s the screen guide: –

1.) Approach From Behind To Save Ammo, Kill Enemies
You can use SMG weapon for the surprise attack. When you approach the enemy from the behind and strike, you will activate the surprise attack cheat. If it gets successful, you will see the message; surprise attack successful. What’s the benefit? It would not cost you any ammo+enemy will be killed(deal massive damage).
2.) When Low On Ammo, Head To The Ammo Depot
On the battle screen, at the top-left corner, you can check the ammo you have. When low on ammo, head to the armor depot and you could get ammo for free. Or use ammo crate(if you have).

You can even complete some missions without battling against the enemy groups. All you need to do is make the right movement path.
5.) Change The Strategy On The Basis Of Situation
At the bottom of the screen, you can check the strategy; standard, caution, and stay.
