Pionier is a German Infantry unit.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Pioniers represent a middle ground that has both close range firepower, and the ability to combat long range opponents. Each German Division have a Pionier-Bataillon organic to the Division. A Grenadier Regiment has a Pioneer Platoon in the Regimental Headquarters while the Panzergrenadier Regiment has a Pioneer Company.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

One strategy is to hide them inside a building supported by IG 18s and anti tank weapons. You can also hide them in a forest near a road where they can use their grenades to ambush advancing units. Generally, they should be used in towns, forests, and other close-range engagements, as their HE grenade makes them far more useful than Pz.Grenadiers and most other German units in 100m engagements.
