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. Commented Sep 8, 2015 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". Commented Sep 8, 2015 at 23:32

    If it has been confirmed on numerous occasions, could you provide sources of reference?

    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 Commented Sep 9, 2015 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.
