A more centralized hub for all communications and Operator upgrades within DMZ is coming to Season 04. Known as the Forward Operating Base (FOB), this menu system allows Operators to complete objectives to earn a variety of upgrades to use across DMZ. These upgrades come in four different categories:
· Stash: Wallet and Key Stash size increases.
· Weapons Locker: Insured and contraband armaments and upgrades.
· Bounty Board: For Exfil, Bartering recipes, and Buy Station discounts.
· Communications Station: Allowing Urgent Mission access.
All Operator Upgrades within the Forward Operating Base are passive, don’t need to be equipped, and allow for efficient progress across all aspects of DMZ.
Urgent Missions, Reputation with Factions, Wallet
Within the FOB you can unlock Urgent Missions. These are a new type of Faction-requested tasks. They are usually quicker to complete, and provide an excellent way to earn Faction Reputation, unlock more Story Missions, thus giving Faction Missions even more agency.
Specifically, Urgent Mission completion grants a tracked Reputation with individual Factions, all shown in the Forward Operating Base along with your objectives that allow you to unlock insured slots, the out-of-game Wallet, as well as expanding DMZ elements like the Contraband Stash, Key Stash, and Wallet Capacity.
And yes, DMZ will allow you to keep your extracted Cash from each match in a Wallet. You can then choose to re-infiltrate with a full pocket of Cash, potentially making it easier to complete objectives that require hundreds of thousands of Cash for completion… Or so your Operator can go on a spending spree.
