My first and very bestest buddy Josip is, well... a few bullets short of a full clip. His crazy, hare-brained schemes have gotten us both in a spot of bother quite a few times.
For example, his definition of 'ambush' seems to be:
Stand in the middle of the road and shoot a shotgun at an oncoming jeep, fitted with a .50 Cal machine gun and a trigger happy Australian/South African manning it. (The accent sounds Australian anyway. Well, American-Australian)
Needless to say he's been downed quite a few times, and I've had to revive him. A couple of times he didn't make it, and I had to reload and try again (I like to keep my buddies if I can). But this latest one, no matter how many times I reload I can't revive him. (I reload to a save before he even gets downed I might add, but it seems almost impossible for him NOT to be downed by the time I get to him)
Which leads me to believe there is an upper-limit on the amount of times you can revive a buddy. Or at the very least a lower and lower chance of a successful revive each time you perform a revive (limit→ 0).
Is this the case? or have I just had a really bad run with revives lately?
