Clear Steps

Although they appeared previously, this is the first map where you properly have to contend with Mortars. Functioning much like an enemy HOC, Mortars bombard your side of the field at intervals. Their target is highlighted with a red crosshair and the targeted T-Doll should be retreated before their shell lands.

Bear in mind this doesn’t stop the Mortar from firing, so only the retreated Doll will be immune from taking damage; if another Doll moves into the targeted area, they will get hit. 

Outside of the Mortar, this map is a straightforward path, and endgame players may find they have enough DPS to ignore the Mortars entirely. With that said, caution is recommended to spare your Dolls the unneeded abuse.

Capture Command Post

Turn 1


Deploy a Combat Echelon on the Heliport, and a second Echelon of any sort on the Command Post. 

Move the Combat Echelon down two nodes, right two nodes, down a node, and right one, to end your turn on the One Time Supply Node.

Turn 2


 Resupply your Echelon and move one node right, one node down, and three nodes to the right to capture the Command Post.

Hostage Rescue

Turn 1


Deploy a Combat Echelon on the Command Post and the Heliport. Move the Command Post Echelon down two nodes. 


Deploy a Dummy Echelon on the Command Post and move it down one Node. This will prevent the Command Post from being encircled on the following turn. 

Turn 2


Move your Combat Echelon right one node, and engage the Rodelero. Be mindful of the enemy Artillery during this battle!

Move down one node, right two nodes, then up one node to rescue the Hostage. Once carrying the hostage, move up another node and finally one more node to the right, ending your turn on the Heliport. This will rescue the hostage and end the map on the next turn.
