New ES2 Training & Co-op missions



ES2 MOUT McKenna (Training)


"Every Soldier a Sensor (ES2) is a potential information collector and an essential component to help reach situational

understanding. Every Soldier develops a special level of situational awareness simply due to exposure to events occurring

in their Area of Operations (AO) and has the opportunity to collect information by observation and interaction with the

environment and the population. The increased situational awareness that soldiers develop through personal contact and

observation is a critical element of the Brigade and Battalion's ability to more fully understand, react to, and control

the operational environment.


On today's battlefield, information dominance is crucial and the soldier is the Commander's most valuable weapon. By

diligently observing the environment the soldier will be able to identify and report objects, people and events which

contribute to Command's full understanding of the AO. Things worth reporting include objects which are dangerous or seem

out of place, people who are behaving in a suspicious manner, and things which are obviously related to enemy activity

(such as weapons, explosives and uniforms). As information is being reported by all soldiers, Command may then be able to

put together seemingly disparate information to attain a more complete view of the AO and will be better able to direct

soldiers in the field."


The McKenna MOUT site is the location where training in the concept of Every Soldier a Sensor will occur.

Players must use key clues to find an IED cache while engaging enemy targets in a timed environment. A Go or No-Go will

be given based on number of suspicious objects observed and reported, time of completion, and number of enemy targets engaged.

Successful completion of the ES2 training will allow players to accrue points for observing and reporting suspicious objects

within the ES2 Border Co-operative Multiplayer level.


ES2 Border (Multiplayer Co-Op)


"Intelligence has identified this small border village as a hotbed for hostile activity and the likely source of IEDs used

in recent attacks. The local population is a mix of insurgents, sympathizers and pro-democracy civilians. The sprawling

village borders a highway which will be used increasingly in the coming months for friendly troop and supply transport.

It is imperative that the insurgency here is addressed with as little negative impact as possible on civilian infrastructure

and that any IED related activity be eliminated."


This version of the Border level hosts a co-operative mission where a small village area with low hills is home to an armed

group of insurgents. Teams are encouraged while on patrol to be on the lookout for suspicious objects which may lead to clues

about current activity within the village.
