The weather plays a big roll on gameplay in Grunt1914. When playing in clear conditions its easy to target and spot other players and combat is clear and open. When playing in rainy or snowy conditions however, there are winds howling and particles that fill the air. These elements make visibility a challenge.

Games can be played in daytime or at night time. In day time there is naturally a lot of light, making warfare open and frontal. At night time a more stealthy approach is often needed as visibility is low and enemies can be hard to spot.
