Is Chapter 14 Mission 4 Nightmare impossible after 2.2?

I have been trying to beat this since the 2.2 update but the difficult has been set so high that I've pretty much considered it impossible. There's a flood of lvl 25 saviors and fatties and it apparently can't be done. Some members of my guild also concluded this.

My concern: many people beat it before the update, as it was much easier, and I feel unfairly deprived of this possibility now.

@Shteevie is NG aware of this bump in difficulty making it impossible to beat? I have lvl 20 legendaries with lvl 23 legendary gear and it is still a slaughter - not even close.

    Looks like you finished CH14M02 before update now we all stuck on it.

    I actually just did this last week during the Assualt buff (when they started every mission charged) and think I was just at the right place at the right time. Level 46, most of my BETTER survivors are 18 but did this with 3 assaults b/c of that buff. However, there was one sitauation that I remember that swung the tide in my favor.

    After you get passed that little area with a fattie around a tree, take out the assault stationed in that closest bunker. Keep someone with range there (to kill the freemen trying to open the container) and try to position your other 2 survivors (at least one has to be a charged assault) along the bottom of where all those free men are.
    Once you kill the freemen opening the container, out comes HELL. But the zombies will go right after the freemen and vice versa, as long as your away from that area. WHICH IS WHY YOU WANT 1 CHARGED ASSUALT(with wider range then normal if possible ), to stun as many of those freemen in place.
    Then you can slip around that entire mess!
    Hope this helped.

    The programmers appear to have rigged it. I can kill the bruise and the other but the third is MIA. I have made it to the back area many times. The first set shows the hunter and bruiser. The second does not because he runs around the bend there to fight walkers. When I get there I kill him in the struggle but no third savior to kill and claim my victory. All other tires they (three) come storming out like mad men.

    I appreciate but in Nightmare nothing works. You are on the low difficulty right? You mentioned lvl 18 survivors...

    Would really like some official answer on this topic. 2.3 seems near.

    I am having a hell of a time with this in hard mode with lvl 20 people. what is the best class to use, or combo of people.

    There are walkthrough videos in YouTube that may help you.

    Find that most of the YouTube videos are pre 2.2 and are lower level survivors and enemies so since the update its much harder.

    Mind have just completed it, after taki8ng out the assault freeman i then had to focus on a warrior that came at me, then take out the guy opening the cargo container so the zombies go after them.....then its just a matter of playing safe...at the latter part i killed on of the freeman that just attracted all of the zombies to fest giving me a free run out.

    @tigerfeet @chefin3 I beat 14.4 doing similar to what is explained in this video here https://youtu.be/avDw5b5rVK0

    It is a lot harder and you need a lot of luck.

    I wish I completed the story missions when they were that ridiculously easy. Lol to anyone trying that strategy today. When those walkers poured out of the gate, that hunter would have been killed. Then again, when that first survivor peaked his head around the corner he would have eaten a face full of assaults rounds. After turn one, that warrior comes charging over and makes you bleed.
