Clear Steps

The first major difficulty spike of SC arrives mid Chapter 3. This map can run both objectives side by side, luckily for everyone, making things simple. We will also be making use of the good old Gate squish trick to weaken some of the Manticore stacks to the point where they can be easily defeated. If your ARs are struggling you can add an RF to the backline to battle the Manticores, but this should not be needed in this case. 

As it happens, you can't quite make the side by side clear happen, but the fix is very simple, and will be noted below. I'll add the actual screenshots in a little while!

Turn 1


Deploy a Combat Echelon on the Command Post, move up one node, and deploy a Dummy Echelon on the Command Post. 

Turn 2


Move the Combat Echelon up one node, to the left one node, and down one node. Activate the Console. Open and close the gates repeatedly to weaken the Manticores. 

Weaken Manticores to ~3.7k CE
When the Manticores have only 3.7k CE they have been sufficiently tenderized. You can get away with less, but why not. 

Turn 3


Move the Combat Echelon up one node, to the right one node, and down one node. Swap onto the Command Post and resupply at this time. 

Turn 4


Move the Combat Echelon up one node and then to right one node. End your turn now, despite having AP remaining. 

In order to complete the Command Post Capture, you will move up two nodes, and activate the Console, opening the second set of Gates. This will break the Elimination objective and allow you to run to the Command Post at your leisure. 

Turn 5


Move the Combat Echelon to the right three nodes. Both objectives should complete at this time.
