Once you beat the campaign, they get added to the mission pool on Solaris. So you might get a "Caves of Chaos" mission that's a Free for All in Ishiyama Caves, etc.

Not a fan of the update. Got a permanent red warning all through infiltration missions and the battlefield map shows me where the enemies parked dropships are. Minor but annoying.

Pilot Overhaul was crashing my game, but it works. You need to have mod manager installed and on before adding Pilot. For some reason Pilot installs turned on and crashes the game without mod manager.

But yeah it works. On my way to get Chainsaw now. <3
