Ok so my first playthru a year ago, I beasted the whole game. Fully upgraded base, two fobs, max amount of money, all the guns developed, Max bond with all buddies, and high level soldiers. Never had any problems with the the skulls, got S rank on cloaked in silence and code talker and metallic archea. Fully upgraded Serval AmR, the works. Had everything I wanted and needed.
On this play thru I'm already on the mission "skull face" and I have barely any guns, like 10k GMP, can't upgrade my base beyond 3 platforms, getting my ass kicked all the time, and can't get my R&d level past 34 because it's mostly trouble makers. What. The fuck am I doing wrong. I mostly just want to get to r and D level 37 so I can get my Brennan and serval back. But every two seconds I have 6 dudes sent to medical because I have like 15 A+ trouble makers.
