a repetitive, boring experience. prepare to be lead by Sgt Maggot into the frozen woods against serborussians assuming he hasn't shot you in the back in a fit of autism, hasn't kicked you from his squad for incompetence (such as not sucking his ♥♥♥♥), and if not that then you're squad leader is someone who may not be aware they're in a squad. 50% of the playerbase are stuck-up, reddit-browsing neckbeards who would be completely useless in a firefight but are convinced they know all about it because they played lots of arma. the rest of the 50% are extremely laidback people who are just having a good time playing with friends, no middle-ground.
idk man i haven't played this game sober most of the time because i usually end up tking my former squad leader in a giggling fit that would make me seem psychotic if enacted in a real-world Self Defense Situation.
dont ever tell anyone in this game that you're new LOL. especially squad leaders, consider yourself solo if the SL actually uses his mic.
buy this game if you anticipate using a shotgun in the near future for facial reconstruction surgery but i reccomend buying arma 3 instead.
