Hi, I’ll get straight to the point, I’m a filthy solo player that’s never touched multiplayer (because you know, no frens and all that) and so to farm the experimental weapons I thought the Our New Home - Base Defence mission was going to be perfect to level up the Forest region.
BUT - I think whenever you complete the mission it subtracts several hundred off your region score.
I tracked the region score carefully throughout the mission twice (on Hard mode) and here’s what I saw:
Before: 10250 / 12581
After 1st wave: 10466 / 12396 (??)
After 2nd wave: 10924 / 12852
After 3rd wave: 11518 / 13446
After 4th wave (after mission): 10946 (!!) / 12880 (!!)
So as far as I can tell the mission takes off ~500 points every time, but obviously there’s a small net gain as you destroy so many machines. I haven’t tracked this for Easy or Medium mode, maybe the drop will be smaller?
I would love to know if anyone else has spotted this too as I cannot find anything online about this (and I have looked, believe me!)
PS - Absolutely love the game, it’s been one of my all time favourites and I think the experimental ammo is just the icing on the top of the experimental weapons, great addition to add flavour to the weapons. So now you can mix and match weapons and ammo. PPS the 7.62 shock ammo is just insane, a few bullets and you can take down any tank.
PPS - I know that the score is being tracked in other ways because several times before the base defence mission I’ll have a brand new rival at level 1 and then immediately start the mission, and before I’m done it will be at least level 3. That’s 2000 points I believe to achieve level 3, so how come it doesn’t show in my region score?
