Clear Steps

EX1-2 is more annoying than difficult. The map is filled with enemy groups containing large numbers of Jaegers that spawn close enough to shoot instantly on battle start, dealing significant damage to your tanks if Taunt Fairy is not used.

An Airstrike Fairy at SL 8+ (needs 400+ damage) can one-shot the Jaegers, but due to the initial delay your tanks will still take a lot of damage. If lacking all other options, an MGSG squad can also handle the Jaegers, but your SG will lose about 1 link per battle, so be prepared.

Turn 1


Deploy a Combat Echelon on the Command Post. Move right one node, then deploy a Dummy Echelon on the Command Post for movement points.

Turn 2


Move your Combat Echelon right one node, down once, then right again to capture the Heliport. Activate Taunt Fairy if you brought it.



The map layout is different this time due to Fail’s absence, causing more enemies to get in the way of our Combat Echelon and making the resupply mandatory.
Repair your Combat Echelon if needed before moving right, up, right and then down. It has to fight five packs of Jaegers on the way to HQ without a chance to emergency repair - an unprepared echelon will be shredded.

Turn 4


Move your Combat Echelon right and up onto the Command Post to capture it and finish the map. The final encounter still contains Jaegers, so keep your Taunt Fairy activated!
