Clear Steps

We'll talk about the Elisa fight when it comes, but this mission is mostly an AI 'puzzle' to get the Manticores on the right side of the map out of the way while you activate all of the consoles. Outside of that, the enemies are nothing special and your AR/SMG Echelon can handle the left side with your RF/HG being well-positioned to handle the right. You've made it this far, there is only a little bit more to go. 

Turn 1


Deploy an RF Echelon on the Heliport, and an AR/SMG Echelon on the Command Post.

Move the Echelon on the Command Post up one node and activate the Console. 


Move the AR/SMG Echelon back down two nodes.


Move the RF Echelon to the left one node.

Turn 2


Move the AR Echelon to the right one node, then up two nodes. End your turn, we need to bait the Manticore on the right. 

Turn 3


Move the AR Echelon up one node to avoid getting attacked by a Red Bean.


Move the RF Echelon down one node, to the right one node, down one node, and then left one node. This will bait that lower Manticore out of the way for next turn. 

End your turn.

Turn 4


Move the RF Echelon up one node, to the right one node, then down three nodes. 


Move the AR/SMG down one node to avoid the Red Bean.

Turn 5


Move the AR Echelon up three nodes.


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

Turn 6


Move the AR Echelon to the left one node, and down two nodes. Activate the Console. 


Move the RF Echelon to the left one node, and activate the Console. 


Move the RF Echelon to the right one node, then up one node. Activate the Console, and open the Gate. M4 will now move down to attack Elisa. 

At long last, we do battle with Elisa...after a fashion. More specifically, M4 engages her in our stead, and the battle is fairly simple. You will need to move M4 out of the way of Elisa's various attacks for the first half of the fight. 

At approximately 50% of Elisa's health remaining, M4 will have some dialogue and the fight changes slightly, Elisa now has a large AoE attack you have to avoid by standing on one of the glow purple/blue titles to bounce M4 into the air. It is a relatively straight forwards fight, much like the Cinematic battle with M16 earlier in this chapter. And, when Elisa goes down, you have successfully cleared Polarized Light!


What about EX Maps? And isn't there one more map on Chapter 5?
You can get hte True Core Mask now, you cleared the event. We'll go over the EX maps of course, and there is indeed one more map in Chapter 5, but at this point, you have the major rewards under your belt now, Congragulations!
