Deep Dungeon Missions for EXOPCOM

So the typical beginner dungeon sortie is a time in a forward base or a patrol. Veterans who show a talent for dungeon survival get deeper patrols and missions. The best go on deep missions usually for intelligence or search and destroy specific dungeon entities wanted by command. Possibly will do some dungeon clues tables. Im tempted to map out a great multi level dungeon chasm

Maralinga Experimental Operations Command - The Pit
