The eight gamers trying the raid may even have to separate up into groups of 4 at a pair factors, and so they’ll have totally different goals to pursue throughout these instances.
The raid culminates on a runway, and this is without doubt one of the factors at which brokers should cut up into two groups to flank the boss. It’s not clear from kevindavid40’s publish how the boss will work, however he says the character gained’t truly be firing again at you – the boss is generally busy shifting crates onto a cargo aircraft. However, he’s accompanied by a lieutenant who has a particular capacity that may utterly wipe your group.
