Consider the Forward Operating Base (FOB) a central hub for DMZ. Here, Operators will complete objectives to unlock upgrades across DMZ.
Unlike Faction Missions in previous DMZ Seasons, the FOB upgrade objectives are passive and do not require Players to equip them to make progress.
The FOB is divided into four categories of upgrades (elements of which are shown in the image above, for exemplary purposes only):
- Weapons Locker
- Insured Weapon Slots
- Insured Weapon cooldown time
- Contraband weapon stash size increases
- Wallet Unlock
- Wallet capacity
- Key and Contraband Stash Size increases
- Bounty Board
- Personal Exfil
- Barter recipes
- Buy Station discounts
- Communications Station
We believe the new upgrade infrastructure will eliminate the friction we felt between Operators and high-tier mission objectives. For example, instead of Faction Mission progress, Insured Weapon Slots can now be unlocked through passive objectives in the FOB.
This change will allow Players to progress through DMZ more efficiently than the previous Faction Mission-only structure. Faction Missions are still available in the Mission Objectives menu and will be integral to earning new Faction Reputation (see below).
