Create a Profile

The first time you run Enemy Territory, you'll be prompted to enter the name of a profile. This profile will store your key configuration, player name, and more. Enter the profile name you wish to be known by online, choose your graphics and mouse options, whether you are Left or Right-handed and set your connection speed. Playing with incorrect connection settings can significantly degrade game performance. When you're happy with your choices, click "Create" to proceed.

Find a Server

To find a server to play on, click "Play Online" in the main menu. This will bring up the server list. Make sure that "Internet" is selected in the "Filters" section (click "Source" to change it). Click on a server to choose it, enable PunkBuster and then click "Join Server" in the lower right of the browser.

Review the Objectives

After you've connected to the game, you'll be taken to the Limbo Menu, where you can see the objectives, choose a class and more. On the bottom of the screen you'll see the map objectives. These are what each team has to accomplish to win the game. Clicking the Axis or Allies tab will show you the objectives for that team and you can scroll through them with the arrows to review them. Hit the Play Briefing button to hear an audio introduction to the map.

Choose a Team and Class

On the top right-hand side of the screen in the Limbo Menu, choose a team (Axis, Allies or Spectator) by clicking the appropriate flag. Then choose a class by clicking one of the class buttons beneath the flag selection (the numbers under each button tell you how many team members there currently are in that class).

Soldiers have the greatest choice of weapons including Heavy Weapons. Medics can heal living players with Health Packs and bring fallen players back into play by reviving them with Syringes. Engineers can construct objectives and also plant explosives like Dynamite and Land Mines. Field Ops resupply their team-mates with ammunition and can call in heavy fire support in the form of Air Strikes and Artillery Strikes. Covert Ops scout out the battlefield, and can steal the uniform of dead enemies in order to infiltrate in disguise. They can also plant Satchel Charges that can be remotely detonated.

Once you've chosen your class, you can choose a weapon from the list beneath the class icons. Some classes have a choice of primary weapons - click the weapon and select from the pop-up list. When you've chosen your weapon, click "OK" to start playing.
