informants who know the exact whereabouts of the sensitive material."

"Following an ambush by enemy forces, a wounded Resistance leader

escaped to a neutral hospital for treatment of his wounds.  The

leader is a critical member of the Resistance government within

Unconventional Warfare Area of Operations (UWAO) JAZZ."

 

Urban Assault

"A coalition convoy was raided and the cargo was stolen. It has

been confirmed that the insurgents and the cargo are based in a

residential area of the city. Due to the dense urban nature of the

area it will be necessary to do a house by house assault on foot."

 

ES2 Bridge

Technical Notes

=======================================================

 

     ********************************************

     ** IMPORTANT NOTE FOR SERVER HOSTS/ADMINS **

     ********************************************

 

NOTE: The cooperative missions will take significantly more CPU resources to run during normal gameplay

      due to the additional AI processing load (shared between the server & client). Server hosts planning to run

      Co-Op servers should plan accordingly. In addition, players running a Co-Op server and client on the same

      machine will experience heavy CPU demand.

 

      It is recommended that server rotations switch only from Co-Op level to Co-Op level, or MP to MP level for

      best performance.
