In ArmA II the drug areas were open fucking fields aside from Heroin which was right next to CPD headquarters and South LSD which was its own island.
In ArmA II either K9 or SWAT or a ranking member of Patrol would have to start the raid. Generally, you would see unmarked cars on the hills and harvest what you could and either start shooting or running. The box checks didn’t make drug running any easier.
In ArmA III, you can hide drugs away in your house and cops will generally just drive by. Shit, most of the cops are just looking for frags anyway. I’ve had cocaine in my A3 house will SERT and CID on and because I wasn’t stupid I only got caught once.
If you think adding this feature makes it easier to catch you you’re either bad or retarded.
