Shooting out an MG with 3 rifle-armed medics is agonizing….
Gets much better when they all have Thompsons though 😀
At least in the Challenge the Medics do not start with their Pistols or it be mission impossible.
I find the Springfield to be a great weapon at range.
All the soldier needs is high Combat and XP for the fast sniping shots.
That’s why I never upgrade my Signalers weapon cause he is in the back sniping away just fine that way.
Wait, so do you start out with medics or do you start out with new people who need to be promoted with only the medic option available?
Start out with medics who are armed with rifles instead of pistols.
it’s pretty easy actually, they’re just regular GIs with 30 rifle skills except with the ability to all heal eachother. They can just be bullet-sponge off damage.
Yeah, and why shoot out a machine gun at range if you could just “flank”(Walk within two feet of)it? If it’s a crew operated gun the person would just walk out and attempt to use his primary weapon, which then should make it easy to pick him off, and if it’s an mg42 you would simply close the distance as it should not be able to pin your entire…[Read more]
Hard to flank an MG when there’s a squad of krauts next to it, hah. Also, I was in Mortain so it was nests of the things, not just one at a time. Suppression for days!
Found a TTRPG by the name of Deluxe Revised RECON, and since I don’t have any friends to play it with I have an itching to play MnB: Recon again haha 😀
Is it the Vietnam one made by the same guys that did Rift?
I remember I played that when I was a kid. It was a riot.
Looking throw my archives and collections it seams that I missed that one.
Played this TTRPG war game quiet intensively instead. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twilight:_2000
It would actually be a great basis for MNB4 if a future war MNB ever will come about.
Talk about an ambush, haha. What was your heat like before/after that mission? Did you still finish it or just get out of dodge?
Yeah, if a VC goes by close enough and your rangers don’t see him he gets shown to you, but doesn’t count as a spot. Can definitely by frustrating, and shows why contact reps are your friend.
Spot missions are some of my least favorite :/
Not a priority, but steam trading cards and emotes would be awesome.
Maybe make it easier to get to soldier’s gear while in mission? You could have it so if you double-tap a soldier’s hotkey the gear menu would pop up and all you have to do is click the gear you want and then again where you want to use it.
Other than that, just general bug…[Read more]
I’m pretty sure that sound is the squeaking of a poorly-maintained VC bike. If you can find it and shoot the VC off, he’ll drop ~4 bags and boxes which you can search for intel and then blow up for some tidy xp.
So I had the idea that maybe overflight could be changed so as an option before missions you could do an overflight of the AO, consuming one day and adding some heat and/or increasing the number of VC in the AO and the size of the QRF. The current ‘Overflight’ killcard could be renamed to something along the lines of ‘Field Intelligence’ but…[Read more]
So the new XCOM 2 expansion, War of the Chosen, came out recently, and it looks pretty damn cool!
Now I’m just waiting (and hoping) for the Long War 2 mod to be compatible with it and I can see that being the only thing I play for a while 😛
My reward points from challenges don’t deplete, so I can call in Sarje, a sherman, and as many bombing runs as I like… it is kind of nice to have a sherman as a shield every map though XD
How do rewards for community challenges work? It says I have 2 available, do they disappear once I use them?
