The Airstrip map will problem the participant’s expertise as soon as once more; not solely will it push your vertical limits preventing on hangar roofs and run-down radio towers, its open areas will go away you feeling weak. Guerilla snipers wait to choose you off one-by-one, and damaged sight strains go away you straightforward prey as Fireteam.

There are locations to cover, however in case you search shelter in a airplane and the Predator sees you, simply know you’re not getting previous it except it needs you to.

It’s a Pyromaniac’s delight. For further hilarity, add in Massive Head Mode; simply you should definitely file your play; we wish to see the present.
We have now given the Fireteam new toys and quite a lot of specializations this previous yr. Now it’s the Predator’s flip.
