View Full Version : Sub-quest on Al Bashra

2007-10-30, 23:00
Not so long ago I was playing insurgency. I was in a good squad. After we destroyed first cache VCP got atacked and went neutral, so we rushed from the desert villige to VCP. We got seperated, some of us killed. I spawned on the airport.

I entered the merlin, pilot took me over the city, where we were hit. Merlin wasnt badly damaged but pilot got scared and landed by the bridge far to the south from the city.

After that pilot was missing in action. So the merlin was sitting there. My squad decided to rescue it, but I was the only person that could pilot it. Another squad noticed downed merlin and decided to rescue it aswell. They didnt have a pilot, but we told them that our pilot will be coming from the airport very soon.

The other squad took an APC and a Landie, my squad leader took a landie we went to the chopper, me as a pilot. We went thru the city, merlin was protected with an APC, Landie and the rest of the squad 2. And all were waiting for the pilot being escorted in the second Landie. I got to the site, Merlin was repaired in the meanwhile, I we could finally take off.

It was very nice, all the teamwork, and a side-quest - rescuing the "downed" merlin :) Wish there could be more actions like this. Maybe objective game mode, or roleplaying on the servers.

Thank you for your attention.

Once in 0.5 basra, my cobra lost engine power after I was killed in the Cockpit (I think, but in any case I died), My Gunner and the Cobra drifted to the ground NW of palace immobilized. 2 squad mates and I hop in a BH and fly across the map to a location just across the river from Insurge main. We manged to get it operational and fly it back home with out any insurgents finding us.

speaking of rigged bikes, last week i was playing insurgence as a insurgent and half way through the game there was a warrior west of the wearhouse on the the ledge next to the pipes and 1 tryied to get it with a bomb truck and failed so i got ambush kit, rigged a bike and went through the city and to the docks. came out of west enterance and went full speed. as i went up the ledge i went ino flight over the warrior and detonated. that was my 1st jihad bike kill great fun:twisted:
