Episode 12 Mission 4 Hard

sborgsborg Member Posts: 549
Any tips? I'm getting swarmed before I can detonate the charge. I'm using 2 17 lvl hunters and a lvl 17 shooter. I've noticed that my guns aren't as lethal as they are in the farming missions.

    I used a Warrior, Assault, and a Hunter, but it's pretty hard.

    Sorry, just checked! That's what I tried, but still didn't get through. I need better weapons I think. I was able to blow up the pile, but had trouble with the lvl 20 walkers coming from behind.

    My rifles are rated 459 and 398. The pistol is rated 710. They're excellent in other missions but they're like popguns in this episode.

    Lvl 17 Epic Hunter with 543, Lvl 17 Rare Warrior with 543, and my Assault is lvl 16...I got rid of his weapon. My other Assault has a 240 but is crap for a weapon. I recently upgraded my warrior and weapon, so I may give it another whirl soon.

    @sborg These are the guys, but the assault weapon needs an upgrade first.

    He he! Those guys failed badly! Didn't even get to blow up the pile! I'm thinking a bruiser to set the charge?

    @sborg I got through using 2 Hunters and a Bruiser.

    Quickness is key! Move your hunters toward tree and shoot as many walkers as you can. If you have a clear path to the drum, move in your bruiser (high health). Line up your hunters to shoot more than 1 walker when they spawn. With one turn left on drum, move 1 Hunter towards switch, but keep in overwatch. A level 20 walker may spawn near switch. Hit him with the bruiser. I had cleared a path on the top section where I had moved my other Hunter, and shot the stunned walker. Then I moved everyone else towards finish.

    My team!

    @Camel56 - Interesting. Thanks for the detail.

    Just tried that. I got closer. LOL!

    @sborg tried the next one, and I'm not sure what to do! Once you get through the gate and close it, the spawn on the right side of the gate is overwhelming.

    @Camel56 -I wonder what Nightmare level is like. :)

    I'm with @Camel56. The secret is get the heck to the exit ASAP and accept you are going to probably finish with three injured survivors.

    I'm currently stuck here too. I like that they make you use a bruiser. My lone Bruiser is upgrading right now. I hardly ever use 1 but someone pointed that out earlier and it made sense for this map.

    I tried an Assault, but the weapon I have, just wasn't strong enough. I believe, you need the very best weapons you can get. Pop guns won't work. You need to put them down with one shot. If not, they'll swarm on you. I held off on this episode till I got some upgraded guys to go in there. As it was, I still came out of it damaged.

    @sborg Hopefully by then we have 18 or 19 lvl guys to handle Nightmare levels this high! I've already finished some Episodes in Nightmare, but definitely not this one!

    Two hunters and assault was the combo I used for the entire episode.

    @Camel56 thanks for the tips! I am going to try again after my hunters are healed in 2 hours!

    you need to have an assault and know when to use the charge thats a very important key to be able to stun them. i used 2 hunters and a assault shooting from a distance to get my charge and stunning them with my assault but its wise to have an assault with a wide arch that could be the difference..

    Getting closer every time. Find assault and two shooters working best. Long range weapon and that new reckonin worked out great, but before the infamous nerf today. Still trying to pass.
