Episode 9-5 and one successful strategy

@Kael nicely asked a proposal for Episode 9-5 :) Sorry i don't remember and there is no possibility to see the missions in Episodes afterwards but I suppose I'm explaining 9-5 :D

In normal mode I used 2 x hunter + bruiser. In recent hard and nightmare modes playing I had got enough strong warrior - and its gears - so I replaced bruiser.

This 9-5 stage can be divided to 4 suboperations.

1) Starting to open the gate
Naturally there are other good strategies and char combos. This version has acid tested 3 times :) Put warrior / bruiser to open gate for 6 rounds. Put hunters as center and near the gate as possible. Think every single shoot carefully. U can get huge advance when you count exactly the grid cells between ur chars and zombies - meaning that zombies are moving 2 grid cell. Just keep that 2+2 distance as long as possible meaning that they can come one round nearer to you. Keep zombies in long distance there, they will gather as they approach u and u can hit multiple in one shoot. Specially look out vertically moving zombies from the bottom right. 2 NPCs inside the gate also occasionally manage to shoot individual zombies.

2) Inevitable close contacts and hits
When zombies start to make close contact and ur characters start go get hits just try to eliminate the closest ones and count which shooting lines are hitting more zombies in one shot.

3)The Mess aka The gate is open
When the gate opens, several things happens: a) a fat zombie appears from the right building and start to struggle that nearby NCP. b) U get more space to place ur characters and c) there is a total mess on the gate.

Bruiser might do, but this is the reason why warrior: There is a free grid cell where warrior can hit both the fat boss and at least 2 zombies in one hit, depending on the situation. Naturally warrior needs a weapon with large angle. Another hunter can shoot the fat boss also and another shooter overall zombies. I think I have put another shooter shooting (boss zombie) just inside the gate.

4) The Great Escape
That's not enough (sic). U have to get to the Exit area. The is a main cut sequence in which u can't influence. Depending on the situation, sometimes it is possible just to walk to exit because zombies have better things to do. But supposedly u have to protect NPC also to get to the Exit. That is basically just forwarding to Exit and considering optimal shooting lines.

Hopely this helps and if not, please just ask more details :)

    @Sabrina thank you so much! Great strategy.
    I went with my hunter/shooter and my lv. 16 warrior, who opened the gate from the rightmost position as mentioned by @WastelandDan too. Defended both sides of the map using overwatch, shooter's charge ability for 4 rounds and hunter's multiple shots... Had a bit of luck for some critical shots (by Bud and Wanda too) and I used all my charge abilities to kill the fat zombie in 1 round.....
    Then I RAN AWAY!

    @Kael Congratz! Great to hear that! And also to know that strategies suggested in this forum work to others also, not only the players suggesting them :) Sometimes there could be some critical details not to be recognized when remembering or emphasize enough. In that POV the video with explaining is naturally better than storytelling :)

    In this game RUN is the most rational option to finalize many stages :D
