Yesterday I was checking the daily assignments and one of them was the following:
“Complete a Base Assault Mission by using only grenades”
Can we please have this particular assignment, and/or assignment variant removed?
I typically play the game solo or with one or two friends at most from time to time. Even with help from my friends, this mission is not only difficult, but vague as well.
In terms of difficulty, the mission is only really doable when you are first prompted that a FNIX base has been setup and have to deal with a handful of runners or hunters at a time. Otherwise, you and your squad will be eating through a large number of grenades and/or resources trying to destroy walls, spawn beacons, turrets, machines, and generators.
The mission is vague in that it does not specify whether only hand grenades count, or if the G79 from the grenade launcher count as well. Furthermore, are you allowed to heal and/or revive yourself if incapacitated, or does this item use count against you when the mission is determining what is used by using healing items?
To exacerbate matters, the assignments have a known bug of not accepting a valid first attempt at a mission. For example, I have got a very similar mission today but instead of grenades, it was only handguns. I completed the mission without using any healing items or reviving myself (was taken down to 22 HP), and only used the Volkov Pistol. The game did not complete the assignment for me.
For other mission such as “Destroy 15 runners” I typically have to kill 16 runners because for some odd reason (bug),at least the first runner I destroy does not count but most, if not all, runners destroyed afterwards count towards the 15 I need. With this in mind, I don’t thing it unreasonable to ask for this mission to be removed.
