What the bloody HELL? Maintenance, my a**! You Ubisoft guys just ROYALLY screwed me! My profiles are gone, ALL THE REAL MOINEY THAT I SPENT ON SKULL COINS AND EVERYTHING THAT I SPENT THEM ON, GONE! As far as I am concerned, Ubisoft owes me a refund for what their rank incompetence has cost me, including all the redeemables that I used (that if I want them back, I have to spend more real money...with no expectation that it won't happen again!).
I wonder: How many thousands of dollars has Ubisoft just taken from how many thousand players worldwide?
@avengergr35 Yeah, they're complete idjits. Never, ever, ever free a rebel from captivity if he's anywhere near an enemy that must be taken alive; that moron will kill him. The only use that rebel hostages are is if there are more than three to be let loose (when you don't need to abduct an enemy). If there's a generator, kill it, and then free the rebels. They will divide the enemies' attention when you attack from the opposite side of that area of operations. Now, they're still pretty damned stupid, so don't expect much; they're cannon fodder, so plan accordingly.
However, with the new DLC, the Motherland conquest mode, the rebels have a degree of greater utility. This is because as you destabilize false flag operations, the rebels become more numerous. They're still pretty damned useless, though. Again, don't get your hopes up. The rebels in Wildlands, though, proved far more effective and useful in combat.
On a different tangent, I miss the challenges presented by Wildlands' jamming broadcasters.
What the HELL? I played this game for over 200 hours on my PC with settings maxed out, and now they are UTTER CRAP!
Specs of my PC:
Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3P motherboard w/Intel chipset
16 GB Skilljaws DDR4 SDRAM
nVIDIA (Gigabyte) GeForce GTX-1660 Super Windforce / 6 GB GDDR6
i5-6600K 3.5 GHz Quad-Core CPU (water-cooled)
Crucial MX500 2 TB SSD
650 W Power Supply
Windows 10 x64 Home (OEM) 21H2
EP-9636GS EDUB LOVE WiFi 6 / Bluetooth 5.1 3K Mbps Networking card
At first, it was just the Vulkan launcher that gave me crap. The regular launcher let me max out my settings. NOW, however, BOTH of them suck -[censored]! WTFF?
Now I can play this game only on my HP Victus gaming laptop:

What the HELL? What the damned Sam U. L. Hell is going ON? This game came out two years ago! All of a sudden, my kick-[censored] desktop isn't good enough?

@hippolyta You really don't know anything about marketing vis-à-vis intellectual property rights, do you, and the kind of money that it costs to support a game that is not overrun by consumers willing to re-invest, do you? Or, how lucky you are that they still maintain servers to run the game in online mode. Free? Don't be ridiculous! You're acting like you are entitled, but you are not. What about the guys that worked their asses off to make this? What do they deserve? What did you contribute to the development of this game? Nada, zip, zilch. And you act like the developers owe you.
I've had Wildlands for a while, but have only recently purchased the Fallen Ghosts DLC, and I immediately fell in love with the Extrañeros BFG (Beeg Fokking Gawn!) While it does not bring down an Unidad assault chopper with one shot (It's not a frikkin' RPG launcher!), sometimes two, and always three are sufficient to cause catastrophe for the purple monsters before they can raise an alert. Better, it's not a bolt-action rifle; it's semi-automatic, so it can loose several rounds rather quickly before it's very small clip needs to be refreshed—and it's a killer anti-materiel rifle, penetrating substantial cover to snuff out irritating enemies with childish ease. While you cannot customize it, you can equip and unequip the suppressor as your heart desires to suit varying defense and offense scenarios.
It has marginally better stats than the regular HTI, and a slightly higher muzzle velocity, arguably making it the best sniper rifle available in the game.
All I need are the Extrañeros BFG, a decent LMG, and a nifty sidearm. With the outlandish abundance of ammo in this game, I can safely ignore assault rifles, SMGs, and shotguns…but let us not overlook that darling crossbow with its infinite quiver of arrows: At relatively short-to-intermediate ranges, it's silent and utterly deadly, more stealthy than a suppressed firearm for twinking out lights and snuffing out lives.
@gameguru2018 I have a couple of hundred other games that I play on PC with standard KBD/Mouse HID setup. "Back in the day" (I've been electronic gaming since 1978) you used to get actual manuals that you could hold in your hands and read with the games that you bought, and then they stopped doing that, electing then to supply you with digital files, and now almost nobody does even that anymore, but are at least intelligent enough to provide in-game tutorials or onscreen hints. But, this, this non-intuitive and complete lack of direction is insulting. Not entertaining.
It's been a while since I played this, and I know I figured it out before, but I've been playing Breakpoint for a couple of months and cannot figure out how to deploy proximity mines. In the beginning of this playthrough, after unlocking Extra Sync Shot (squad) and Drone Range in the skill tree, I have available to use in the Items category of inventory fragmentation grenades and proximity mines. I'd like to cover approach vectors of my position with proximity mines [on PC], but I…just found it: numeric key 4 is the cycle items key, while 5-0 are specific item specification keys.
I'm going to go ahead and post this for the benefit of first-timers, and others like me that might be a wee bit forgetful. I do recall now, though, that in my previous playthroughs that I never bothered to memorize 5-0 key assignments, that I just cycled using the 4 key. After playing in the Auroa Atoll for a few hundred hours, it's taking a bit of effort to reacclimate myself to Bolivia.
What the damned Hell is going on here? I'm looking for help with this game, but it's IMPOSSIBLE to ask a question, like, "How the HELL do I make my first kill?" I've died something like twenty times, and there is NO clue how to survive! Is this entire game franchise totally SCREWED? There is no owner's manual, no game guide, and no tutorials. It is NOT intuitive, and it is NOT fun!
@hugo-fou (& everyone else reading Sorry that I have neglected this for so long, but I am happy to report that when I completed the requisite gameplay a second time, the Strike Designator unlocked and appeared as it should have the first time I ran through it. The device, however, has extremely limited utility. Its cognate in Wildlands, though, is far more useful.
@hugo-fou Well, I am happy to report that after finishing this for THE SECOND DAMNED TIME, it properly unlocked for me. Funny; unlocking it the second time is a LOT shorter process than the first time, same with the Terminator missions. Jeez, the rest seems kinda boring, now.
@hugo-fou I haven't switched classes; I've been playing Panther the whole time, and frankly, I'm starting to not give a crap about ranking up in the class, as there is no practical incentive for doing so, and some of the requirements are such a pain in the butt. I really would like that strike designator, though. I've discovered something about extracting freed prisoners: Don't climb any friggin' ladders after you've started freeing prisoners; those stupid turds will climb the ladder and refuse to come down, so you have to shoot them and fail the mission. It's pretty damned irritating, especially when you had cleared the entire camp after failing to raise an alarm.
I completed all the Resistance! missions, and when I went back to story mode, no strike designator. What the Hell? So, I'm going to do it AGAIN...or does it only unlock ONCE, on the original profile you create, not on any new ones? That doesn't make any sense.
