Mission and Clear Conditions:


Capture Command Post

Clear Guide:

Team Recommendations: 

  • 1 Combat Echelon
    • AR/SMG with PEQs recommended
  • 1 Dummy Echelon

Clear Steps

Normal mode starts off relatively easy, although this is a night battle, so be sure to put PEQs on your ARs, these enemies have enough Evasion that newer commanders will want the accuracy penalty to be mitigated. 

Clearing the map is a straightforward process with a slight detour to hit the Console that controls the Gate. 

Remember to put a Handgun in your Combat Echelon so you have vision to deploy the Dummy Echelon. 

Turn 1


Deploy your Combat Echelon on the Command Post. Move them to the right one node, then deploy the Dummy Echelon on the Command Post. 

End your turn. 

Turn 2


Move the Combat Echelon to the right three nodes. Activate the Console to open the gate. 


Move the Combat Echelon to the left one node, and end your turn. 

Turn 3


Move your Combat Echelon up two nodes. You can go left or right as you wish. The Dragoons will hit harder, and more often, but the Ghost Brides have more total HP. Pick your poison on the way to the Command Post.
