|Applied when:||When opposing soldiers get too close to each other.|
|Effects||Lowers health of hit enemy by a non-variable from 1 to 100|
|Description||CQC, H2H, Close-Quarters-Combat, Close-Quarters-Battle, Hand-To-Hand Combat, melee, they all mean the same thing-fighting without the use of ranged weapons.
After getting 100 registered CQC kills, you can get the Close Combat Ribbon, which boosts damage in CQC by 10% (meaning Sarge will deal 220% damage in CQC!!!).
A good tip if you want that medal is to build Palisades, which block the Line of Sight, so no one can fire, and to order tons of Frenchies to fight with German forces since they, too, have a CQC bonus.
Equip a bayonet to any unit for +50 CQC damage! Great to use if you want to get that medal. However, note that blows in CQC can be blocked, which means that even if your soldier hit a German twice with a bayonet, that enemy unit may still be alive.If your unit is losing the CQC battle, use concentrate fire on the enemy. Yes, it does work, but be careful as your unit might be pinned for a while after winning the CQC in this way.
