Do you have what it takes to spend days living outside, following orders, avoiding detection, even enduring interrogation? If so then get ready to brace yourself for the Hive’s toughest mission to date!
To succeed in this mission, first you will need to undergo training. Working as part of a Unit, your very first challenge will be a survival test… If you can demonstrate you have what it takes to be part of the team, you will then be expected to master vital survival skills over the course of 3 days. Natural navigation, mental strength, concealment in the outdoors, survival in extreme environments, rescue in the wild, cooperation: these skills will make all the difference between success and failure when it comes to your live challenge!
The final two days of the mission will see your Unit tested to the limit… Trusted to make your own decisions, you will be watched carefully by the Unit Leads, as you respond to a series of increasingly difficult scenarios, whilst avoiding detection from our Special Forces Operator.
This is no walk in the park! You will need to demonstrate a high level of survival skills, using all of your resilience and cunning to beat the game. At no point will you be required to go inside, everything must be done in the great outdoors. Are you brave enough to take the challenge? Can you muster up the skills, resources and determination to make it as one of the Hive’s top Special Forces Operators?
