National-backed separatists in the Lybor, have taken over the region in an attempt to overthrow the current government. After months of bloody fighting, NATO has decided to move into the area to reduce the bloodshed.

Over the last few days, US army forces have captured the area south of River. However, separatists trapped south of the river have formed a strong insurgency.

Great OP @Mattdogs. Loved the chaos.

@Schmalfred and @Teddy, amazing work in the end when we were trying to survive. I was passed out and halfway to heaven multiple times but Teddy patched me up while Schmalfred was covering the main entrance. We all checked in with each other every 5-10 seconds because things were so hectic.
Bonus points for @Spud guiding me over the bridge. I couldn’t see anything since I was moving Teddy as a prisoner since he was AFK :rofl:

Server/HC FPS at the last objective was hovering around 10FPS which was noticeable.


T’was awesome to see so many foots on the ground and birds in the air.

NB did great if ignoring my flying mishaps (rocket in the face and tree in the cheek). Good shooting @Ohdahh!

Thank you for the OP!


That did give me some Lone Survivor vibes as the AI was harassing us from all sides. It was a really fun experience and i loved the chaos. As we started hearing the red team over the radio a bit better by the minute, while trying to survive with a few magazines left and running out of ammo. That relief was so good when they finally arrived.
