    Annoying!!!

    Why in almost every faction mission do you have to escort a scientist to a place for him to hack into something. its really annoying how every mission is the same. mabye for just cause 3 they could make the missions diffrent. could they come out with an update to change the missions

    Those are the stronghold mission, only 9 out of 49 side missions. I don't see the problem here.

    As the guy said above, it's only the stronghold missions that are like that (thankfully). The rest of them are pretty varied, and some of them flat-out awesome (MILSAT/Cape Carnival/Tesla Coil Lost Island).

    yeah the first couple were a pain on hardcore , but now they're pretty easy once I have an idea what to do, just use the grapple and remove the large threats before he get's to the console, like the snipers, the rocket launcher guys and the turrets

    Once you get to the console , luckily its a checkpoint just grab the gatling off its mount and cover the weak side flank , don't stand where the gatling is at , pull it off the stand and stand to side a little and its easy cheesy from this point and be ready for the helo

    don't forget to leave the SAM's functional ,once you take them over they become your allies , and very useful , like at Panau city by the docks , you can lure enemy helos and they get obliterated by the SAM's

    I always took out the SAMs - assumed they were counting towards completion of the base.

    Yeah the only ones that count towards completion are the NON-Faction based ones ,like the ones you find while roaming the islands.

    For example the stronghold area Pelabuhan Saudagar Harbor , you can get 100% without destroying one single SAM site here, The SAMs will become friendly and attack all hostile helicopters.

    This is the one located at the docks in Panau city

    I hate escort missions...but these are the best escort missions I have played...where your escortee will take cover and wait for you to clear the threat instead of just running into the line of fire like too many games I have played....like them as they are.
    Is that an exploding gas canister or popcorn?

    In my first mission the eejit tech guy got himself shot.

    This is not so completely true. I find it completely maddening when that technician orders me to take out those snipers, I get one in the crosshairs, the technician steps in front of me, and I get sniped. This is one of the many maddening features of this game that do not make it un-fun!

    Yeah, I learned very quickly to stay ahead of the tech and faction guys at each stage of the mission, they are a hinderance more than a help, in one mission I shot two of the faction members for getting in front of me.
