2 questions by a newbie!
I've had the game a few years, never play much, it seems to get A-LOT of updates.

? #1. To play solitaire... Must I DISCONNECT from internet.. THEN play in FRONT-LINE MODE?

? # 2. I seem to remember an OBSERVER MODE while online, where I could use a camera and watch you all kill one another. Is it true an OBSERVER MODE was and/or STILL available?
IF YES...how do I turn it ON?

#2 - observation mode is still in the game, called spectating. You can do so by selecting a match from the Play menu, and then clicking the smaller 'Spectate this match' button in the lower right :)

Thnx Wilson for getting back. Tried both you'res. Had a (pardon the pun) BLAST.

I will do the create your own...small # of bots,saving 1 spot for myself.
Am I limited to ONLY front line, or may I choose another mode?

1st attempt at SPECTATE, a match was ALREADY IN PROGRESS. I could only follow behind another player, MOUSE CLICKS enabled me to change/follow others in squad. W-A-S-D, ROTATE, ZOOM did NOT function.
2nd attempt...Joined another match, waited for such to start... when so, the spectate was as I remembered, so I could fly above the battle and watch the tactics and carnage. Way cool!

1. Bots are only available on your team and the enemy's in Frontlines, and only against you in waves in Squad Defense. (Attrition and Rifle Deathmatch do not have bot support)

Note: You can also play against bots in Frontlines and Squad Defense in Steam's Offline Mode. (Where you can create custom matches too.)


2. If you want to spectate from a bird's eye view, press the Space Bar to switch between first person and third person. (In the top right corner, there's info on what buttons to use for moving, switching views, etc., but I think it can get covered up by the killfeed if it's enabled.)

P.S. I can't remember what the PS4/XB1 controller buttons are atm.
