With Clash being the mode for this week’s Iron Banner we thought it prudent to try to help you survive when you venture into this limited time PVP mode. Of course these tips will still be relevant when the Iron Banner is said and done so if you’ve arrived looking for helpful tips for Clash regardless of the timing then you’re in luck.
First you need to understand what Clash is, and we’re here to tell you that it’s basically Team Deathmatch. You’ll begin the match as part of a team of four and then both teams need to fight each other, getting as many kills as possible in order to add to their team’s score. The game will end when one team has fifty kills or the timer ends, in which case the team with the highest score will win.
The most important thing you can do in any Crucible match is play the objective, and here that luckily ties in with the thing that most people do in the Crucible regardless, kill other Guardians. Each enemy down is a point for your team, but the real skill is in getting the kill without getting killed yourself, which if you do die is called trading as both teams get a point.
The second most important thing to do in to do in Clash is play to your own advantage. The way you find it easiest and get the best results from killing is the way that you need to be fighting. If that means you get double Hand Cannons then go for it, but if it means that you need to shoot from afar then you’ll need to get those rifles and snipers out to play to your skills.
Finally, the last thing you need to bear in mind when you’re fighting in Clash is where your team is. You may be fighting win random players but you still need to stick together because otherwise you’ll be picked apart. The combined fire from a group of enemies is too much for an individual to handle, but if you’re working together as a team also then there’s a better chance that you’ll survive.
