Mission: Capture the Command Post.
1 Combat Echelon, AR/SMG 4x Linked
E-3 represents a massive difficulty spike from the previous stages! Players who have an adequately leveled (4x link) strong self-buffing RF like M14 or WA2000/SVD/VM59 can swap out one AR for an RF to significantly reduce incoming damage.
The third map of the Halloween Event is another capture the Command Post mission. There are no special gimmicks to this map, only a good old fashioned brawl on the way to the Command Post, with much stronger enemies than previous maps.
Players with insufficient DPS to clear out the frontline will take massive damage from the Strikers; backline targeting from an RF can alleviate this problem if that option is available.
Additionally, be mindful of the Jaguars that will target a backline T-Doll with their mortar strike; either retreat or move your targeted units to avoid damage.
Spawn a Combat Echelon on the Command Post and move to the right two nodes. Don’t worry about the Jaeger below the Command Post; as long as there is not an echelon on the Command Post, it will not move.
Move your Combat Echelon down and to the right, then end your turn.
Move up onto the Command Post, giving another pumpkin Ripper the boot if needed, and claim victory.
