It literally serves no purpose in PVE. sometimes the zones are within 30 meters of an objective. Get rid of it, it break immersion too often.

The restricted areas are bit on the aggressive side for coop.

Agreed. It doesnt allow free movement or good flanking opportunities for organised players.

I don't know if remove them completely but I agree that as it is right now it's too restrictive.
I mean on some objectives there is a restricted area just few meters from it which is nonsensical really

YES! I have been saying this for years on INS2. Thankfully we still have tons of custom servers and most don't have restricted zones, even in the original maps. Makes a much more fun game, you don't clump as badly either. Best line from INS2 "Spread the fuck out people, quit gaggle fucking"
