You will be fighting for a city that is divided into 3 zones: The Green Zone is the most wealthy & protected; The Red Zone is mostly a suburban wasteland that has been abandoned and where the resistance is forming; The Yellow Zone is where the majority of the population are located in and is very heavily patrolled by the Korean People’s Army.
As a resistance leader, your role will include building a strong resistance and conducting missions from safe houses. You can always recruit new freedom fighters and implementing geurrilla warfare to weaken the occupation. The game makes it hard for you to find weapons because you can’t simply use the enemy’s weapons since its fingerprint protected. What you can do is roam in the city to look for weapons and items that can be weaponized such as Molotov cocktails.
