Thanks @M-Rossi and @Tweakzero for taking Daniel and I through this for the first time.  I hope Ubi can come up with something better for future Incursions, just throwing waves of bad guys at you in the same area just added to the feel of grind within this game.  It was good to get through in a reasonable time on the first attempt though!

You guys did well. It helps having Tweakzero leading the charge  :up:

As I said last night, the challenge missions can be fun, but the incursion is just mind numbering.

@Ant  anytime man.

now you've seen the HM version i can explain the CM part...its exactly the same but enemies have like 5x the HP and you can take 3-5 shots from the normal enemies , 1-2 from snipers and 1 hit from the shotgunners.

Very unforgiving.

Heres an extract from reddit that i found apt.

These are all good points, but from a game design standpoint the problem with this mission is that every time a wipe happens it feels cheap. Aside from when I was learning how to do the mission on challenge mode, every wipe I've had felt cheap. I've completed CM FL at least 10 times now. Every time I've wiped since my first completion (wipes due to bugs aside) its been to shotgunners cheesing the entire group to death. I imagine the mission if they were to nerf the shotgunner damage, and it would be an absolute cakewalk. The shotgunners are the only difficult part of the mission. This is a huge problem and points to lazy design.
There's nothing in this mission that makes me think after wiping, "Oh, here is the mistake we made, this is how we should have handled that situation." It's always something like every single shotgunner coming down both stairs at the same time while we only have 1 Security Link left, or Security link randomly not being applied correctly to 1 player in the group who is downed, whose DPS could have meant the difference in taking down the last shotgunner. Any wave that doesn't have shotgunners (Not counting agent shotgunners) I consider an easy relaxing wave. On these waves, what you can't do and what needs to be done is clear, and if you do what you aren't supposed to or don't do what you are supposed to do, you will die.
On shotgunner waves, your entire team can do exactly what they are supposed to do, and still be completely destroyed in ~3 seconds. It is cheap and lazy and boring, with no clear solution other than to retry and hope the AI behaves differently the next time.

I would like to say an extra thank you as the FL dropped an extra piece of my Sentry's call gear and a HE M1A I have been after for the last 3 weeks. Hopefully I can progress faster and join you guys on the new 'Broken Circle' incursion that is coming out soon.

I asked the lady at the post office about sending a game/dvd and she suggested to post it in a letter envelope. If you're ok with that postage is included in the $45. Otherwise I can easily drop it off to Jonno's place for you

Last night, patch was fairly sizable too (5.9gb or something from memory). Loot drops are better too but it's still a bit meh to me.

Solo is doable with smart cover and patience but its a waste of fcking time lol...
dz05-06 takes like 3x longer to clear than dz03-04 and ok you get a 204/240 every kill BUT in DZ03-04 you get a 240/204 like 1/2 the time so it works out quicker to just farm dz03-04.

the sealed caches are fcking awesome... you get HEAPS of div tech and good items and it only takes up one spot so less extractions.

love this update... burning im at work.
