Not sure if this has been discussed already, but I was just thinking it would potentially improve gameplay to have a 3rd scavenge/mission loadout option similar to the existing offense & defense loadout options.
Offense loadout: raiding weapons & gear
Defense loadout: typical defense gear...m24s, LRs, glasses, etc.
Mission loadout: at least for me, most of the equip. I use for missions (auto or manual) are very different than those used for offense & defense, as in a lot more melee.
Don't know how much work is involved in implementing this but just my thoughts...
