If the art of vampiric warfare can be mastered, the Sabbat has come close to doing so. While based on freedom, the loyalty among its members and the belief only the strong should survive give it strength in the Jyhad. When the battle rages, the Sabbat uses all the powers at its disposal. Its members become true daredevils, unafraid of Final Death.
There are several tactics, which have proven useful to the Sabbat in their efforts:
The Sabbat makes good use of spies. It send operative into enemy territory to gather knowledge and to create dissension within their ranks
If their Camarilla enemies protect themselves from mortals through the Masquerade, the Sabbat destroys the Masquerade.
When fighting vampire hunters, the Sabbat puts the hunters on the defensive by turning any relatives and loved one they might have into vampires. They also face the hunters in direct combat when possible. The packs will usually use their newest recruits as bait to lure the hunters out of hiding. The cost in Sabbat recruits is usually much less than if the hunters were allowed to hunt the vampires one at a time. Hunters find Sabbat vampires difficult prey since the sect is so secretive and since its members can usually be found only in groups. The open profession of vampirism by the members of the Sabbat deeply disturbs some hunters, causing them to act without thinking.
When facing Followers of Set, the Sabbat attacks them openly and massively, going beyond even the force it throws at the Camarilla. The Sabbat believe Setites to be as inhuman as themselves, and respects them accordingly.
Encounters with Lupines have led the Sabbat to fashion silvered weapons to deal with the threat. Silver swords are commonly used, but daggers, arrowheads and axes are also found. The Sabbat usually tries to pick off Lupines one by one. It also tries to surround them and burn them to death from a distance.
The Sabbat produces massive amounts of expendable vampires to throw against any enemies, thus keeping them off guard and outnumbered by more than two to one.
The Sabbat creates total chaos within the enemy's territory. It murders human servants, uses torture, burns havens, spreads distrust among the enemy, and calls War Parties against certain elders.

The Sabbat uses similar means to defend itself from invasions of its own territory. In addition, its members stay in their well-defended communal havens and murder their own human servants to prevent information leaks.
The Sabbat is very unpredictable and dangerous. Its members are not afraid to go to any lengths to win in Jyhad. This makes them seem crazier than Malkavians and as ruthless as Assimites.
