How Do I Survive the First Mission?
One thing is that they say there is a better place at Fort McCoy to find ammo dumps and such, but I am not getting any indication on the map where this place is. I quickly run out of money and can't build a big enough force to take any of the houses that provide money. I have died many times trying to get through this mission. Any help would be appreciated.

Are you talking about chapter 7 rotten to the core? This is a stealth mission. Use infintary to get the money and Strykers to defend base initially. Start with money to SW and then E. Go round the ouside ot the building blocks You may need to recapture blocks with money. You need to be quick and avoid unnecessary confrontation.

Thanks for the help, but I am in fact talking about the very first mission when the game starts.I can't seem to find the right strategy to win it. I actually don't get very far. I am going to try again an be a bit more aggresive, but I don't think it will turn out well.

If you are at Fort McCoy we are at the same place. To see how the game is divided up look at chapter selection. Before Fort McCoy, there is a fooftop rescue in two chapters, a battle at JFK, two chapters and a fooftop battle in in two chapters. In these you follow the route and hold back to take advantage of sniper range. You need to capture building in SWwith your starting troops, including those in the vehicle. The starting money covers 3 buildings plus extension, 3 turrents and replacements. I think the message is pointing ahead to the next mission

@ davidrh,

You are correct. I misspoke. I called it the very fist mission because I considered the others are prequels leading up to the game. The Fort McCoy mission is the first one where you get a base and play "the regular game".

If I am able to capture one of the buildings, all the money is spent on troops that I lost capturing the building. IOW I can't get ahead of things. When I go to attack a second building I am eventually overwhelmed in a war of attrition.

I've replayed it on regular army. You should be able to defend you base with 3 upgraded strykers and 3 gun emplaycements, perhaps more later. I took the cash in buildings SW, E and then NW. Then did rescue from North and attacked base to NE. Last two require strong force. Finaly withdraw to NE. Your base will be over run. Note GUOS recon drones and capturing gold enemies for cash. Try clearing round buildings before you occupy and occupying adjoining buildings to clear

Thank you. I will try that.
