But remove the weapon choice from the briefing? Hm, I don't know, schuler. I never saw a mission comment or review where the reviewer did like the fact that there was no gear choice in the briefing. I always read things like "Hm... No weapon choice, sadly!"
Funny about that, in my last mission I gave him what ever he wanted (load of weapons so they couldnt bitch. because it dint matter and he had a stryker full of more
weapons, but the game didn't depend on what weapon he had ,,, its solved the no weapons choice rate of the bat. I didn't do it for me but for them ‘ unlike your mission whatch is solo player!
Sometimes you don't have to give them what they want, read more and you'll see what I mean.
[like SBG said weapon bug] yes seen that too. That's another reason for doing what I suggest.
having 2 weapons HK and a M24 is more then enough to complete the mission, as the play gets weapons later from the rebels, i would have it this way. that way some players that like to use some odd weapons wouldnt have to restart the game after picking all assault rifles instead of a silenced secondary weapon. and beside the player has the choice to take weapons from downed player, If he needs too and then go back and pick up his HK again, lets face it, if it was a 20 or 30 min game let him chose what every he wants. but its more then that and i think you know whast best for the play and he does not. nor does he know the length of the mission. plus you suppley the player with weapon choices half way through the mission. and thats good fine.
[[in other words give the player what he needs not what he wants]] two primary weapons is outstanding. one a loud sniper rifle and 2nd a silence HK. think of the role of the player
you are the one that knows what he is up against! He doesn't! he my bitch because you didnt have a selection of RPG and satchel charges grenades or a P38 (can opener),,,,, so what the mission is good enough that you say what happens I call it intel! 'Not freedom of choice to get yourself killed'. and its your mission!
Silenced assault rifle
M24 sniper rifle
