I'm on mission 30 and I have a question about forward operating bases. I want to concentrate on the primary missions first, but it is almost mandatory to create a FOB, when I go online. My question is, Can I create a forward operating base and play offline without getting invaded? I don't want to pay attention to that for a while.


No you can not, unfortunately.

It has been confirmed on numerous occasions that you can get invaded even though you are not online.

    This is awfull. :( I want to play the whole game without being forced to play in FOB. – Zarathustrax Sep 8 '15 at 23:31
  • I've not played as far as you, but as I understand it you don't have to create a FOB. So, don't missunderstand me, you can play through the entire game without playing in FOB. As long as you don't "start it". – Linus Juhlin Sep 8 '15 at 23:32

    If it has been confirmed on numerous occasions, could you provide sources of reference? – user106385 Sep 9 '15 at 0:08

    That, and you are immune to infiltrations after you get infiltrated for up to 24 hours depending on how badly they ruined your assets. Source – Lucas Leblanc Sep 9 '15 at 21:44

You can buy Insurance for your FOB with MB coins, and the first time you do this it is free. 0 MB coins for your first insurance. I believe its so you have time to develop your FOB to a decent defensible state and learn the mechanics.
