Guide: The Menus

  • 1519984915-guide.png

    Mercenaries,


    Today we are going to do something a little different. A good soldier is a trained, competent and prepared one! It's all well and good to know how to fight, but today we will stay at HQ and review the basics. I'm tired of having to answers the same questions over and over so listen carefully and take note of everything I am going to teach you today!


    This topic will serve as a first guide through the different menus, buttons, and UI functionalities of Ironsight.


    Click one of these to jump straight to the section of your choice:

    I - Home

    II - Loadout

    III - Character

    IV - Storage

    V - Shop

    VI - Account

    VII - Settings


    Please note that the "Clan" and "Ranking" menus will be part of separate guides.


    Thank you for your time and should you have more question, please don't hesitate to contact a moderator or a community manager.
