Clear Steps

This map introduces the next new mechanic, Valves, which when broken, creates a debuff zone on the map, reducing the stats of both friendly and enemy units. This doesn't play a major role in this map, or any upcoming mission (except for 1 Chapter 5 EX map, guide pending. 

For this map, there is plenty of slogging through enemies in the second half, as they spawn continuously, so be ready for quite a few fights. Other than minding your map control, and making sure to count battles correctly so you don't run out of supplies. 

If you have one or more, Parachute fairies will make this map much, much easier.

Turn 1


Deploy Combat Echelons on the Command Post and the Heavy Heliport. Move the Command Post Echelon Down two nodes to defeat the Minotaur. 


Move the Echelon on the Heavy Heliport up one node, and down-right one node to pick up a Bomb.

You can pick up any bomb you like, I just picked up the one that needs the fewest mouse movements.

Turn 2


Move the lower Combat Echelon down one node and to the left one node. 


Move the Echelon with the Bomb to the left one node, down one node, to the right two nodes, and down one node. End your turn.

Turn 3


Deploy a Dummy Echelon to the right of your Combat Echelons, and a Dummy Echelon anywhere you please. Use the one next to the Combat Echelons to swap and resupply them both. This is important. 


Move the Combat Echelon with the Bomb down two nodes, to the left one node, down another node, and right one node. 


Move the upper Combat Echelon down one node.

Turn 4


Move the Echelon with the Bomb down two nodes. Plant the bomb. 


Move the upper Combat Echelon to the left three nodes. 


Move the lower Echelon up three nodes, and to the left three nodes. This allows us to resupply the next turn, and rush the final objective.

Turn 5


Resupply the left Echelon, and move left six nodes to capture the target node.
