New Fireteam Mission: Cabin Fever
"...Attention CAC... ...surrounded by infected... ...mutating into... ...need evac pronto!"
SITREP: As the above fragmentary radio message indicates, the situation with the NEMEXIS virus has begun to spiral out of control. After "liberating" a sample of the virus from an underground research center, fireteams are being hunted by hordes of deadly mutated victims of the virus. After taking refuge in an abandoned building near the facility, teams have found that they're trapped inside by a cloud of deadly gas being released by infected corpses. Worse, the virus has continued to mutate, morphing some infected into deadly new forms. Rescue teams have been dispatched. Fireteams are advised to do what they must to survive until they arrive. Weapons are hot, stay alive!

NOTE: Fireteam games cannot be started on the Bulldog, Delta, Charlie, Echo, and Kilo servers.
New Mercenary: Max
Her real name is Maxine but nobody ever calls her that. Her friends call her "Max." Her enemies call her that blur in the distance just before they lose the ability to speak... forever. Max is fast, smart and has a cheery personality totally at odds with her expertise in guerilla warfare. Don't let her smile fool you. Max is a very dangerous opponent.
