Act I - Recon in Force

Cool map, I liked how you can scope clear across the quarry to take out enemies with long shots, and the turkey shoot from the first vantage point at the top of the stairway to the first camp.

I can't say I needed the mule at all, even on the highest difficulty, but the team did cover my back a couple of times. Fun mission. :grin1:

I think that's the first time I noticed the Ghost logo on the underside of the heli.

For difficulty, I'd rate this mission quite easy, even on Hardcore. The enemy are lightly numbered and are for the most part static, not roaving.

What this map cries out for is a more determined defence of the armour, and some civies working the quarry, with jeeps occasionally traversing the quarry. Civilians on this map would be awesome, that's still a modding threshold that hasn't been crossed yet though :(

Alright, I was on the second mission, Recon in Force, and I had my mule dropped for me. I decided to go ahead and attack the Guard position that was 90 m away, and wanted to bring along the mule with me.

It got stuck on the road.

I tried and tried, everything I could think of to get it moving, but it just wouldn't budge. It was just stuck at an angle to the hill on the side of the road to the nearest camp. Also, I found out I couldn't place the mule's move order directly on the road....

How am I supposed to use it? I thought it was meant to provide cover and supplies, but if the damn thing is so stupid that it gets stuck every 2 m, that is really annoying.

Also, what is the demo guy for? How am I supposed to make him use his grenades to attack certain positions?

The MULE is best used if you place several move orders in a row. Don't make long ones as it is not the best navigator or terrain negotiaor even in real life.

Use it for cover and re arming.

Also make sure to have it within your order range that is 75 meters or about 230 feet of you.

So I beat the second mission, got extracted with music in the background yada yada yada, but didn't get a continue button to push, only the Return to Menu button. Why cant I continue even though I beat it???

There does seem to be a bug about continuing the campaign though, until GRIN solve it your best bet is to delete all the saves for the mission from your save folder and try again, or download the GRAW 2 complete from the downbloads section.

I have come across this same bug. I've completed the whole game on normal, replaying it on hardcore complete act 1 search and destroy move to next mission ok, but once i finish the second mission the bug happens and i no longer advance (only have return to menu). I am also using a different profile from the one i completed the game with first, but that shouldn't make a difference. frustrating. grrrrrrrrrr
any other ideas or any new on a new patch?

I would have to agree even on hardcore this one was pretty easy. I basically parked the mule when it refused to go past the obstacle in the road on the way to the guard area. My team wiped most of the guys at to top of hill out, as well as those who poked their head out of the main gate during the 1st part of the mission. I just sat back and watched.

For GRIN, on the Coop one of the tanks was upside down and still shooting happily, underneath the towers. I have not gone back through it but if it is there again I will get a screenshot. I thought the damm thing was a wreck, and it kept killing me. :)

You gotta fix the draw distance for coop, it is my only complaint. The enemy AI does a good job but I can not see them until I reach a certain range, while they can see me from outside my visual. Drives me nuts sometimes, but on the upside I low crawl a lot more. :)

You don't have to, but if deleting your quick saves as in the FAQ does not help, then that might be your only option. Either that or wait x amount of days for the patch which may or may not solve this issue, where x = unkown number of days greater than 7 but mostly likely less than 30.

The mission is good, but as said, it's fairly easy. Personally, I just have Hume along and it works out great with him an and M14 and scope. It's like Allen... Matter of fact I just took it on Normal difficulty with me and Hume. It's good to just waste twenty or thirty minutes for this mission since it's easy.

Using the Mule? The thing is, you gotta pay attention to your movement circle. If you drag your circle, and it dissapears, then it cannot go. Or if you click on an area, and it gives you like an error tone, then yeah of course it's not going to work. You got to keep in the dummy mode, i.e. it's retarded and any complex tasks should best be avoided. And it's really a mission drag, as if you manage your team and weapon usage (or just "borrow" from the Mexicans) then you shouldn't have to use it unless you want to use something special.
