Strike Missions

Strike Missions

I.E.D

This mission is hard to write a walkthrough for as all you are doing is essentially escorting a convoy of vehicles through a barren valley type area with tonnes of anygry enemies swarming en masse to take them out. It is a top and start kind of mission as although the convoy keeps moving (even when you don't want it to), it will also come to a dead stop when there is an I.E.D planted on the road in front, allowing any bad guys in the area a clean shot until you dispose of the obstacle.  For the most part you will encounter an abundance of high up RPG positions, a couple of tanks and helicopters, the occasional IED in the road and several swarms of horse riding enemies.  I would recommend using the tactical vision throughout the entire strike force mission, at least on your first try. Focus on the RPG positions high up in the rocks on either side of route the convoy is taking and us your hover drones to take them down as soon as you see them. Clear the IEDs out of the path ASAP to prevent the convoy from stopping with the ASDs and keep an eye on your kinetic projectile weapon (KPW) missile strike - its very useful to have ready to go!  For the tanks, the KPW missile strike is a must and for the horseback riders I would recommend using the ASD security bots to take them out. When the helicopters appear, they should be taken downprimarily by the hover drones.If there are at any time additional resources available (however infrequent that may be) focus their fire on your target of choice.  Once you have escorted the vehicles through the valey and below the bridges, they will continue beneath a rock formation to safety and a short scene will play to indicate completion of the mission.
