Without a save system this game is a pain in the ***. Fortunately, there are cheats.

The save system in question only applies to Career unfortunately and even then it is flawed but I guess it's better than nothing..

I'll get this game popular again.. Even if it takes me a few years to do so.

No one seems to make mods for this game anymore, Nor addons and the Swat3reunited.com website is barely kept online by someone named Copy-Cat.

It's my hope that people will start making stuff again for this great game..
