I just found out about a realism mod for FC2 that decreases the chances of enemies following you from checkpoints if you just drive through. It also fixes a stack of other annoyances I had with the game so going to try it out a bit later. I'll try using the waterways instead.
link if anyone's interested
Ah that mod didn't improved shit.. Shame because that is the thing that killed game for me,every time respawning enemies behind my ass.
I can see her nipples o.o
Epic MP flight with shit weather. Typical for the UK I spose.
Detcord, its very pretty, but what is the epic proportion about it?
That's the game. You only progress by either avoiding enemies, or ploughing through them violently. Progress is never easy, it's brutal and hard, it's meant to be. You aren't rambo, but with planning and proper application you can clear enough of an area to allow you to gather your bearings and plan your next assault. You don't even have to kill people. In fact getting into too many firefights means you haven't thought the situation through. Shoot some ammo caches from afar, create a diversion and drive by. Strap a bomb to a car, jump out before you get into shooting range, then set the bomb off when it reaches the checkpoint. Use a silent weapon or a knife to take out an isolated guard, get what you need and creep by. If you need to flush goons out shoot someone in the leg, wait til a mate comes to help them, then kill them both.
I died a few times throughout my playthrough on Hardcore, but when I prepared properly I never had the problems you were having. If you apply yourself properly you quickly learn how to use everything you see to kill people and to protect yourself. That's why it's such a good game. You experience this balance between incredible vulnerability and power, but it feels totally plausible. It's so much more intelligent than any other FPS though that you need to abandon most FPS approaches other than shooting things to succeed.
You're all making FC2 sound a bit STALKERish.
I got it and the original bundled together a good while back, but haven't played them. Are there any good reasons to not skip the first?
I stopped playing FC1 somewhere after the aliens became all it was about. Its also the thing I didnt like in Crysis 1, Just let me fight the Koreans and feel like a super powered human.
Wargame ALB, DEATH BY CHOKEPOINT!
Go home bridge, you are littered with wrecks
Here's more FARC ry2
This is vanilla in-game, no mods nor any modification. It proves the advertising wasn't just bullshots.
