Yet another fun mission. The scorched earth look was very cool.

I brought in 5 mechs: a Warhawk (Psycho), a Guardian Ghost (Ghost), a Storm Crow (Payback), a Nova (Steel) and a Cougar (Wicked). Over the course of the mission I salvaged 3 Riflemen (Claymore, Meat and Nuke), a Marauder (Rooster) and a Marauder IIC (Wolfman).

I had fun against the heavy infantry opposition. The Call4Strike/Elemental Combo was pretty effective against my (initially) smaller team. Infantry was so pointless in the orignal game. In WMX they have earned my respect.

I thought I was being smart by picking off the drop ship guardians from a distance. I got a nice surprise when that dropship started pursuing me!! Overall not a difficult mission, but there were a few tense moments, and the final battle against the dropship and crew was certainly among them!

I like the most when you stumble without any clou and warning in an armada of call4strikes. they can take your entire force out if you use slow assault mechs without jumpjets :sick

Indeed! As a general rule, I equip all my mechs with jump jets all the time. Jump jets are useful in combat, and they are also great for getting out of a fix, such as aerospotters and Call4strikes trying to ruin your day.

Sure, I could use that heat for more powerful weapons, but I've found that the better prepared you are for the unexpected, the more effective you are going to be overall.

But even still, these guys are not to be trifled with. Handle with care! :icon_exclaim
