The mosquitoes and knotts being present was pretty heavy, but within tolerance.
At least for me, but then I'm pretty used to them.
I hope many feel the same!

As long as you used some kind of repellant it wasn´t that bad. :)

Not a problem for me personally, but I know teammates who got bitten all over.

They got a bit annoying during the last few hours of play on Saturday, when we held our blocking pos west of the RICO extraction force. Apart from that, a Normal level for Scandinavia this time of year. Having been to Boden once when it was really bad, I was half prepared for that based on the pre game warning ;)

In the base camps it was ok
Raven base had more mosquito's compared to GCT base.
In the field they were more present and have slept 2 nights out in the field it was terrible, never seen so many big mosquito's together and never got bitten that bad in my life
And I had some severe midge attacks before and it was nothing compared to that.
I think if I would of counted my bites I would be well over a couple of hundred. On my head, ankles and back I had about 10 bites in an area you could cover with a 1 SEK coin...

The pre-game warning was a good move. I made the mistake of only have 95% and 98% deet. Once you had a few bites that stuff burned.
