Gunslinger Girl Collab EX1-3: Honest Pinocchio EX

Mission and Clear Conditions:

Mission: Kill Boss

Clear Guide:

Team Recommendations: 

  • 1 Combat Echelons Level 90 5x
    • AR/SMG is highly recommended for durability. 
  • 3 Dummy Echlons
    • One Dummy can be sustituated with a HOC if you wish.

Clear Steps

Equip your ARs with PEQs, as this is a night map, and put M4 and AR-14 together with a good main tank for a boss fight that is coming up. We'll talk about the Boss when we get there, but for now, know you need to bring your strongest AR/SMG echelon with a good Fairy. 

This map is a bit of a puzzle, with the only major challenge being the Boss. If you time your movements well, it is quite possible to engage only the boss in batle, or, if you intend to bring in a HOC for some additional DPS, you will need to fight a few more battles. The HOC suppport is not needed to complete the map however. See below for the mechanics of the boss. 

Turn 1


Deploy a Dummy Echelon on the Command Post. Move to the right one node onto the Radar and deploy a 2nd Dummy Echelon. 

Something isn't quite right here. Hey, Ari? Did you test if the right side is clear on the turns we thought it would be?

Turn 2


Deploy a Combat Echelon on the right Heavy Heliport, and a Dummy or HOC on the left side. 


Move the Combat Echelon to the upper-left one node, then to the upper right. End your turn.

It works just fine, you're good.

Turn 3


As you can see, the path is filled with enemies, who will politely move out of the way. 

The random node above the Combat Echelon can be stepped on to recieve a buff when fighting the Boss. I might have somehow missed that when doing the screenshots/writeups for this map, so feel free to step up, activate the node, and then step back down again.

End your turn.

Then why am I still afraid?

Turn 4


Move the Combat Echelon up four nodes, and to the left two nodes to engage the Boss. 

Speaking of the Boss...

Who's that Boss!?

Hey Soul? Surprise!
Uh oh. This payback for all those mistakes in Isomer isn't it?

Negotiation tactics that should not be used

We can talk about this right? And the GSG guides have been fine so far!

Are you sure about that? 

Ari pointing out my dumb errors

That was just one this time! You don't want to do EX4 without my help do you?
I didn't think about that. Fine, but if you call Doppels Gundams again you know what happens.
Then tell MICA to give me more than a week to write the entire event guides. We should probably explain the boss for the audience before we leave.


Lucky for us, EX doesn't add any new mechanics to this fight, but if you don't want to end up like I just about did, you'll need to pay attention to what's happening on screen. The Boss hits hard, so makes sure you get your Dolls into the purple spots on the ground when she marks her target. The mark is applied every few seconds, so be alert!

When standing on purple spots, your Dolls receive an HP shield, a RoF debuff, and Damage boost. Move the Doll being targetted onto a purple spot, the HP shield is more than sufficient to take the hit, and at least one DPS if you can to end the fight as fast as possible.

I think that's that? I'm going to go take a nap, I'll add the Boss stats if and when they are available.
