Part 4: Strike Force Mission 1

Strike Force Mission 1
YouTube Blip incoming

This is the first of the Strike Force Missions and it's a real pain to explain everything because there is so much happening at once, but at the same time, there is nothing going on for huge stretches (which I cut).

Things to notice

I fail to explain what you see here right away, but this is me commanding a unit. One of the features of Strike Force is tasking friendly units to attack, move to or defend locations. Here I'm moving a CLAW unit to a location to keep the main avenue of bad guys under control.

Despite it being a starter weapon, this is the first time we're seeing the XM31 in this LP. It's a wrist mounted grenade launcher that pops up a pathing guide when you hit the grenade button and fires a grenade when released. The grenade explodes on impact with an enemy or has a three second timer, whatever happens first.

Each of the units you take control of (I could have used the CLAW, for example) has a unique interface. This is the turret. I'll never do this again unless necessary.
