Absolutely. I was just doing a mission last night where I didn’t feel like sneaking around, so I called up a whole lot of rebels to help out, jumped in a helicopter and … made a scene. Then I crashed the vehicle that was supposed to be extracted, so it had to be done all over again. So instead I had Nomad jump into the water, swim underneath the docks, sneak around the garage and take off without firing a single shot. The game agrees with both.
After these missions in the south, Nomad and her squad move back up north, where jungle and lakes meet and mix. What doesn’t mix is turrets and helicopters. But he started it.
