I mentioned before about heading back into areas you’d already visited, and while it can be fun doing so at a higher level, it can also take absolute ages to trek the required path into, and out of, these.

You can set up a station for yourself outside an enemy stronghold, pull out your sniper rifle and take a pot-shot an unsuspecting goon, but as soon as you do that, almost every enemy there will descend upon your like locusts.
