Free PvE Mode: Guerrilla

Test your endurance with our brand-new PvE mode: Guerrilla. In Guerrilla Mode you and up to 3 friends will face waves of Cartel and Unidad members. With each round, the forces rallying against you will grow deadlier as you gather resources to defend key locations.

Before each wave starts, you will enter a preparation phase in which you can strategically chose your weapons and attachments. These can be upgraded by collecting gear by defeating enemies and exchanging the gear with the shopkeeper.

Completing waves will grant you XP, Tier points, and Prestige Credits as well as an exclusive gear set the first time you beat all 25 waves.

The suppressor in the gunsmith looks way better, that one in the game ist too big for my opinion.

One of the biggest issue is, we don't have a
"No backpack" option in the game, it would be awesome, if we could wear a vests without an annoying backpack

Ohh and by the way the sandstone backpacks is too dark it not fits right to the sandstone vests and the olive drab backpacks are too bright.

Can we get more camos for outfits, like Flecktarn, MARPAT, and whatever Russia is using?

OK, and how about making important changes, like:
1. Fixing the voices of Ghosts - their voices often don't match to character, like sometimes Midas speaks Holt's lines with Holt's voice etc.
2. ADDING FLARES FOR CHOPPERS/PLANES!
3. Increasing the amount of ammo to every type of weapon - 245/255 bullets for Assault Rifles is a joke...
4. Making the optic camo from Silent Spade mission work how it should, thus making us less visible for enemies when using the Camo;
5. Fixing Nomad's model in cutscenes - even as male character in some of them he really becomes a ghost.

You could also give Credits for players for every complete mission in Tier One mode, cause now new players would go crazy seeing so many stuff in shop. Microtransactions should be only optional, not a necessery payment for cool guns or uniforms. Giving Credits for players who appreciate the challenge and don't have much money would only make this game less of a cash grab.

Guerilla mode:

Utter garbage.
On arcade mode, it is harder than playing on tier 1 in tier mode. Makes no sence.
AI teammates have IQ of 2.
Enemy AI do what they always do; shoot player, MUST SHOOT PLAYER ONLY.
1 minute to get ready between waves, but also have the defend points spread out and the sales lady inside a maze??? Good way to piss people off. Well done!!!
Start the player off with the worst possible weapons and no skills. Offer player slightly less ****ty weapons and crappy skills for a lot of credit, so player can't really upgrade much, but make enemies vastly harder for each wave.
Besides this, just like in Fallen Ghosts and Narco Road, if you try to exit to main menu, the game crashes. /clap



Community requested features:

978234987234 requests; only making 4.
Time of day; only 4 times to choose from. Yipee (sarcastic yipee).
I don't play Ghost War, so don't care, but at least those changes looks good.



Year 2 pass:

Yay, I bought the Y2P, so I get stu... Oh. More useless crap for people that spent an extra buttload of money. I SO feel like I'm a valued costumer (again... sarcasm).



Ghost War:

More for Ghost War. More I don't care about, but again it's good changes.



PvP Event:

More PvP. See 1 above.



Heatmap:

Looks cool, but... How do we "read" this?
Lots of pretty blueish, yellowish and greenish dots and lines.
What is what?



Challenges:

Super nice change here. Really like this.
Game feels more alive on a day to day basis now.



(skipping a few here, not that they are bad, I just don't have much to say about it)

Bug fixes and improvements:

Fix a LOT of bugs = nice.
Add a LOT of bugs = WTF? (not described in the list (after patch, game is buggier than ever (please revert game to its reasonable playable state it was in, before Special Operation 4))).

PziCrow I guess you've wasted too little space, you should make those empty spaces larger, so your post would take 3-4 more full screens to scroll.
