Battle Cry of Freedom: Shooting Guide

As a game based on the American Civil War, it’s not surprising that shooting and proper use of your weapons is one of the main elements of the game.




One of the basics of every third-person shooter is, well, obviously the shooting! Battle Cry of Freedom, however, has some unique twists that are worth keeping in mind.

Shooting in Battle Cry of Freedom

First off, let’s get the basics out of the way. You can aim by pressing the right mouse button and shoot with the left mouse button. Pressing V will change the view to first-person, making it easier to aim more precisely, and pressing B will bring up iron sights for even further precision. Finally, the R key will reload your weapon.

You’ll also have to note that there are big differences between the weapon types, such as shotguns having low range and low accuracy, with rifles being the opposite of shotguns with their long-range capabilities and precise accuracy and muskets being sort of an in-between in range and accuracy but making up for their weaknesses with bayonets that allow for melee combat.

Bullet Drop and Wind

Now, getting more in-depth. Aside from weapon types having different properties, there’s a mechanic that sets this game apart from other shooters: bullet drop and wind.

This is something that, realistically, you will have to get a feel for yourself, so it’s good to experiment as much as you can. Bullet drop means that bullets start to arc downwards after a certain distance and the wind, which you can see on the top middle of your screen, makes your bullets stray off depending on the speed and direction of the wind.

This is something you really have to feel for yourself, but the gist of it is that the stronger the wind is, the more your bullets will stray off in the direction the wind is pushing. Getting used to these realistic projectile physics might take a while, but it’s key to succeeding in this game.

Genshin Impact: Totem Puzzle in ‘Garden of Endless Pillars’ Guide

Lighting the Pyro Totems in the correct order will help you complete this puzzle, and unlock a fast travel waypoint.





The Garden of Endless Pillars is located within the northwestern part of the Sumeru Desert. Once you’ve reached there, you’ll notice a giant slab cemented in the dunes, along with various Pyro totems surrounding it nearby.

There will be various mirage walls across the region, but they should be fairly easy to traverse, while hitting the totems with Pyro attacks.

We’ll explain how to successfully complete the Totem Puzzle in the “Garden of Endless Pillars” Guide – read on for our walkthrough.

Totem Puzzle for Garden of Endless Pillars Guide in Genshin Impact

The very first thing you’ll need to do is go to the Garden of Endless Pillars location on the map, which we’ve indicated in the screenshots below.

Once you’ve reached The Garden of Endless Pillars, you’ll need to switch over to Amber, as you’ll have to utilize Pyro attacks on the corresponding totems.

The first totem is extremely easy, as there are no walls blocking you – simply take a right upon entering the area, and shoot the totem.

To reach the second totem (pictured above) you will have to walk forward a fair bit until you spot the totem located in the right-hand corner. As you are blocked by the wall, you will need to traverse onto the concrete pillars to get a vantage point from which you can target the second totem.

Head right for the next totem, located in front of crumbled concrete walls. To find the last two totems, proceed forward and take a slight left. The very last one is located to the right, opposite of the prior totem.

Hitting all the totems will cause the slab to activate, and after this sequence, you will unlock a fast travel point for this region, which you can then use moving forward throughout the new update.
