Before you proceed, it is HIGHLY encouraged that you go and follow the guide to EX1-1. It can be cleared with 2 Dummy Echelons and no Combat and allows you to farm Grenades in the most efficient way, making the rest of the Event much much easier. This allows for the entire Event to be cleared on EX, for more rewards, provided a little farming at the start, that gets you a secret achievement while you are at it.
Yes? If you just want the story, dedicate 15 minutes at the start, clear EX1-1, farming 404 Grenades for the Achievement, and blow up everything (One Exception Applies). The Event expects you to use the new items, and they give you the chance to do this, so there is no reason to not clear EX using them for the rewards. Also some of the EX maps are just flat less annoying than the Normal counterparts.
Now you're probably tired of me, and if you're still here, let's get on to the guide.
Mission and Clear Conditions:
Occupy Specific Node
- 1 Echelon, AR/SMG with night Equips, at Level 30x linked
- Combat or Dummy depending on Grenade Usage
A straight forwards start to this event, we need to make our way to a specific node, which is currently hidden from view. This is a new mechanic from the Dual Randomness Event, wherein large swathes of the map are hidden from view until you step onto the correct node. Supply Boxes appear on various nodes that can be picked up for Grenades and Turrets. Grenades can be thrown at enemies, while Turrets are placed on the map and shoot passing enemies. There isn't much more to say, so on to the guide!
When eliminating enemies make sure to scroll to the bottom of the Grenade menu and use this option! It should remove the enemy from the map immediately.
