Italian Blackshirts are a class of enemy found in Medal of Honor: Airborne. There are two different types, Soldatos & Vicecapos. The latter uses better weapons than the former, but the two are otherwise the same.

Soldatos Edit

General description Edit

They appear wearing a black uniform and a black cap. They have just 90 health. Their primary weapon is a Karabiner 98 Kurz, and they use grenades. They aren't particularly difficult foes due to the slow-firing nature of their weapons and low health. Soldato means 'Soldier', which meant that the Italians in this class are recruits or Privates.

Weapons Edit

  • Melee

Common tactics Edit

The Blackshirts do not have a very large range of tactics. They tend to remain stationary, even when shot at, and don't change cover too often or efficiently. They are also incapable of using their grenades. However, if found in groups, they can be a threat if the player is not careful.

VicecaposEdit

General description Edit

The Vicecapo wear black uniforms and helmets. Their health and skill level is the same as the normal Italian Blackshirt, but they have better weaponry, namely the MP40. Vicecapo roughly means 'Corporal'; meaning that they are Italian NCOs.

Weapons Edit

Common tactics Edit

Like the normal Italian Blackshirts, they do not have a very large range of tactics. They tend to remain stationary, even when shot at, and don't change cover too often or efficiently. They are also incapable of using their grenades. When found in groups, they can be deadly on higher difficulty levels due to their automatic fire, particularly on the "hard" difficulty level, where there is no 'damage halt', the split-second invulnerability to damage when a player is shot.

Fighting against them Edit

Their health is just as low as the normal Italian Blackshirts, meaning that one shot from a rifle or three from an automatic weapon will kill them. However, they can pose more of a threat compared to the Blackshirts, due to their automatic weaponry.

The best way to kill these enemies is to flush them from cover using grenades, and shoot them with an automatic weapon while they are fleeing.

If player using Springfield, it's best to take distances and zoom in to get clearer shot in order to kill them.

TriviaEdit

  • They are the only enemy faction in the game that appear in only one mission, and are replaced by the Germans later.
