Isomer E4-5: Above the Hubbub V EX

Possible Drops:


Mission and Clear Conditions:

Mission: Kill Boss

Clear Guide:

 Team Recommendations: 

  •  3 Combat Echelons
    • 3 AR/SMG are sufficient if they hit hard enough, but RF/HG Echelons may be more useful to fight the trash running about the map. 
  • 1 Dummy Echelon

 Clear Steps

This map is RNG on wheels. The Manticore Deathstacks in the middle are not consistent in their movement in the slightest. Which is annoying, because they get in our way while trying to get to the Bean in the bottom left. Unlike Normal mode, we aren't going through the Hydra, even after getting Artilleried, it's still quite powerful, and instead will will be blowing up some rubble and fighting on of the Manticore stacks. Those, for reasons known only to MICA are weaker on EX than Normal and are honestly not too threatening on EX, even to ARs. M16 herself is a bit closer to her Singularity self, but can be handled without to much hassle.

If you are following this guide, you can either attempt to freestyle around any RNG, or reset until you get identical movements. It does not appear to be possible to fully eradicate the RNG from this clear. 

Turn 1


 Deploy a Combat Echelon on the Command Post. Move to the right two nodes.

Turn 2


Move the Combat Echelon right, then down-left two nodes, and finally up-left to occupy the Heliport.  

Turn 3


Deploy a second Combat Echelon. Move right one node, then back left two nodes to fully surround the Heliport. 

Turn 4


Move the lower Combat Echelon down two nodes, and left one node. 


Move the Echelon on the Heliport right, and down two nodes, after repairing as needed. 

Turn 5


Move the right Combat Echelon to the left two nodes, and pick up the Bean. 


Move the right Combat Echelon back to the left one node to reset the Manticores.  

Turn 6


Move the Boss Kill Echelon to the right 4 nodes. Use the Bean to explode the Rubble. Continue right one more node, right one node, then up two nodes.  A bit of Micro may be needed against the Manticore, but that CE is rather a lie, a strong AR team will tear them apart. M16 is equally simplistic to deal with, especially if you fought her in Singularity.
