Clear Steps

A good old Supply Line map, we spend this map more or less under siege from all sides. Luckily, the Gustav positioned to the bottom of the map is not a threat as long as we don't try and run to meet the incoming Hydras. 

There is an enemy positioned to the far right of the Command Post using Expand AI that needs to be manipulated into moving in a safe direction. The upper Left spawns ELIDs every turn, and the upper right spawns more KCCO enemies largely composed of the Archer/Dog fun, so make sure to brush up on your in-battle control, or consider this a good time to learn.

Turn 1


Deploy a Combat Echelon on the Command Post, and a Dummy Echelon on the Heliport. 


Move the Dummy Echelon down two nodes. 


Deploy a second Combat Echelon on the Heliport. 


Move the Echelon on the Command Post up one node. 


Deploy a third Combat Echelon capable of engaging Armor on the Command Post.

Turn 2


Resupply all Combat Echelons. 

Move the upper Combat Echelon to the left one node, up one node, right one node, and then up onto the Supply Point. 


Move the Combat Echelon on the Heliport up two nodes, and to the left one node. This will complete the Supply Line. 


Move the Dummy Echelon up one node. 

Turn 3


Move the Dummy Echelon up one further node. 


Move the Upper Combat Echelon to the left one node, then down two nodes. 


Move the now upper Combat Echelon up one node, to the right one node, and down two nodes. Swap and resupply then end your turn.

Turn 4


Move the right Combat Echelon up two nodes, to the left two nodes, and down one node. End your turn for the victory.

Heads up! Chapter 5-5 is in fact a Minigame, specifically a bullethell style one! There isn't much I can offer as advice, and when external experts have been consulted they have produced sterling advice that, I, and players should 'git gud'. I think I need new experts...

Either way, good luck Commanders! I will see you on 5-6!
