Clear Steps

Welcome to a very interesting map. The two objectives here are quite different, the first being simply a hostage rescue. The second objective involves completing a special battle. The special battle is started by stepping onto the 'Enemy' M4 on the Enemy Command Post. Details of this battle will be given below, but a quick summary that your objective is not to defeat M4. Instead, you need to kill the trash and spawns. 

In order to reach M4 you will need to step on the Radar in the upper section of the map to cause the bosses to assume a patrol route instead of standing in place. M4 will not move off the Command Post. 

Turn 1

1.1

Deploy a Combat Echelon on the Command Post. Move up one node, then to the right one node. 

Turn 2

2.1

Move the Combat Echelon to the right one node, then up one node. 

2.2

Deploy a Dummy Echelon on the Command Post.

Turn 3

3.1

Move the Combat Echelon up three nodes. You will have extra AP, but end your turn now.

Turn 4


4.1

Move the Combat Echelon to the left two nodes and step on the Radar. Move up, SWAP with UMP 45, then move to the left two nodes, down one node, and left one more node. 

4.1

Move the Combat Echelon to the left one node, up one node, and then swap with UMP 45. 

4.2

Move the Combat Echelon to the right one node picking up 45. Then, move down, left and down one node each. 

Turn 5


5.1

Move the Combat Echelon down one node, to the right two nodes to hit the Random Node. 

5.2

Move the Combat Echelon to the upper-left and to safety. We need to capture the Heavy Heliport and bring in a HOC before we can fight the Failed Isomer.

5.1

Move the Combat Echelon down three nodes, then two nodes to the right. Swap with the Dummy Echelon and manually complete this objective.

Turn 6

6.1

Move the Combat Echelon to the left one node.

Turn 7

7.1

Move the Combat Echelon down node to capture the Heavy Heliport.

Turn 8

8.1

Move the Combat Echelon up one node, and deploy a HOC (BGM recommended) on the Heavy Heliport.

End your turn on Turn 9! We need to wait for the Nytos to rotate.

Turn 10

10.1

Move the Combat Echelon to the right two nodes. End your turn after defeating the Failed Isomer. 

Turn 11

11.1

Move the Combat Echelon up one node, to the right one node, and down one node to begin the special battle.

Before we proceed a word about the upcoming battle. As mentioned earlier on, the objective is not to defeat M4. In fact, M4 dying will cause the battle to fail, so be careful! Instead, we are waiting for M4 to summon waves of Abandoned Isomer enemies that must be defeated. Doing so will fill the bar in the middle of the screen, and when the entire bar is filled, the battle is over and we win! While this is going on, M4 is going to be attacking you, up to and including pulling out her cannon, so make sure to keep an eye on the battlefield and move your Dolls out of the range of her targeting indicators. Seal of the Avenger is just as painful for us as it is for enemies after all. If you are struggling to not kill M4, retreat 1 or 2 of your DPS units to reduce outgoing damage, and keep them moving until the Isomer's spawn.
