I'm afraid I can't quite judge the mission yet, having seen very little, I must say that this looks to be one hell of a ride.
In any case, I just had time to get started this afternoon, getting very lost in the mountains, meeting up with the resistance, and rescuing the first batch of civilians from the shack to the southwest. I've gotten another mission to rescue more civilians, but I decided to go on a raid or two to scrounge up some more weapons, as most of my squad are still packing shotguns. I tried taking on the garrison at Arudy, but that was out of my league for the time being. Normally, I would be able to quietly recon the area, position my squad, and ambush the bastards, but the extremely low visibility rate makes that next to impossible. It makes it tough to navigate, too, since you can't see landmarks until you're about to trip over them. I just have a couple of questions:
1. Does the fog/rain ever clear up? Or is it a constant to keep lag down?
2. When I first met up the resistance, the "leader", I forget his name, said that he had marked my map with fuel stations, convoys, patrol routes, etc. I see the fuel stations. However, the only other markings I see are vertical arrows pointing upwards over most of the towns, which I would assume represent garrisons (why an upward arrow, by the way?). I've decided that ambushing a jeep patrol would be my best bet for gathering weapons and transportation, but I don't see anything on the map representing patrol/convoy routes or anything like that. Am I missing something? Or did the resistance member just misspeak?
