Too much nose into the dirt, mining, not enough interesting combat, for me. :|
For those who might share this sentiment, there's a lot more combat depending on the mission type and who you're playing with.
Mining missions tend to be pretty chill with occasional bursts of danger. Escort missions are the complete opposite: 90% heavy combat with 10% recuperation time while you refuel the drilldozer. Egg hunts are as crazy as you want them to be because the swarms come when you pull the eggs. Bored? Just pull 'em all at once.
Playing with veterans also make things a lot less boring. They're pretty efficient at knocking out the primary objective, and they'll use their traversal tools to keep the team moving. Greenbeards tend to forget things like, "Oh yeah, I can just drill a shortcut"
Solo mode, however, will definitely see you spending more time with your "nose into the dirt". You've got to meet the entire quota by yourself, and the quotas don't scale.
