Yea I was simply reporting the bug guys. But thanks any way others can find use in the info.
And to confirm:
Autos DO count towards tasks with regards to "explore" and "finding resources".
Only tasks requiring infected kills need to be done manually.
Having said this I have also noticed that the 'kill xxx infected" tasks are easily exploited by killing infected and refreshing on the last 10 seconds of the mission then rinse repeat until you have the required kills. Using 5 survivors with chainsaws helps too cause the noise attracts hordes of infected and you have 5 men (low risk of losing to rush's etc).
EDIT: Forgot the main reason I am reviving this thread is because Tom replied here and I have noticed that many of the new missions that were added recently have 0/5? or 0/400?. I was gonna make a screenshot for you Tom but to be honest I have encountered about 7-10 missions now with ?'s in them. All the missions with problems have been in Brookvale North all the way to Pinedale. I haven't gone any further yet so there may be more.
