I see on some maps the itemlist has been changed, like on Brest. You can now take beacon and wirecutter already in player setup menu which makes the crates in the beginning obsolete and clutter the map with beacons. Was this intentional?
On AC1 I think Sygurd should never die, today it screwed up my mission (again). He was leading me through the swamp and I was slowly clearing the complex of enemies when suddenly I get the message Sygurd was killed so the mission failed. I was nowhere near to his location so could never have saved him. So I think the possibility of Sygurd getting killed should be removed or maybe it should be a mission objective to save him, maybe with a timer counting down to the moment soldiers arrive at his "hiding" location after he lead you to the crossroads or complex.
