Strategy Guide for Playing as Veteran
As a Veteran, your power lies in the ability to go on Alert. While on Alert, you deal a Powerful Attack to all visitors. This includes both beneficial town roles and harmful roles, so use this power judiciously.
Choosing When to Alert:
The timing of your Alerts is critical. You only have three uses, so it’s essential to use them strategically. Early game Alerts can catch evildoers off guard, but later game Alerts can be critical in defending against attacks once your role is known.
Understanding the Risks:
While your Alert ability is powerful, it can inadvertently harm beneficial town roles. It’s important to communicate effectively with your town and potentially coordinate Alerts to minimize these risks.
Communicating with the Town:
While your role primarily revolves around defense, don’t underestimate the power of communication. Share important information with the town, such as the number of players you’ve shot, to help piece together role claims and suspicious behavior.
The Veteran role can become a target for evil roles. Use your Alerts wisely to protect yourself from attacks. Remember, you gain Basic Defense the night you’re on Alert.

Strategies for Posing as a Veteran
To convincingly pose as a Veteran, you need to fully understand the role’s mechanics. Know when to claim you’ve gone on Alert and when to share that you’ve shot someone.
Creating a Believable Story:
Create credible results for your Alerts. Make sure they align with the events unfolding in the game.
Adapting to Game Events:
Adjust your claims based on the game’s events. If a player you claimed to have shot during an Alert survives or another player is killed, have a plausible explanation ready.
Ensure your claims remain consistent throughout the game. If your Alert claims contradict known facts or other players’ statements, your cover may be blown.
With this guide at your disposal, you’re well-equipped to master the Veteran role, protect the town, and identify and eliminate threats effectively. Good luck, and may your aim always be true!
