Trying to kill the Infiltrators will just make them deploy a decoy and become unblockable in the process, meaning you will have to deal with them very quickly. The subreddit for Arknights - A tower defense mobile game by Hypergryph.
Frost-Covered Ruins takes the dreaded ice maps of Episode 6 and adds the difficulty of Contingency Contract on top of it. Even though there's a bush on a ranged tile that is safe from both the Eradicators and Essence of Evolution's global-ranged attacks, your operators deployed there will still get hurt from the sandstorm.
I only started right when Originium Dust ended lol, I remember being a sad that I was a mite too late to spend my newbie oruns on the R6 Banner and try my luck.
Furthermore, Unbridled Furies start spawning near the end, each of which has ridiculously high stats and deals devastating damage to operators with opposite attribute, making it even more important that Free doesn't screw you over by suddenly changing the attribute of the Operator blocking them.
The arena is completely dark and you're only given two Knight Crests to illuminate one tile each for an operator to be deployed on. Some are just to be brute-forced.
With all the constant assault, poisoned environment, and Infused Originium Slugs that explode on the operators for massive damage, players will have to bring more than a few Medics along with more than a fair share of decently leveled operators to keep up with all the instances of damage. To elaborate, 5-7 is a map where the enemy, 5-7 Challenge Mode predecessor, 5-3 Challenge Mode, is also similarly insane. The Challenge Mode ups the risk by making the Dockworker Leader Motorboats pretty much impossible to stall by removing 1 block from all Operators, forcing you to slow them and gun them down with Arts before they stroll into the blue box.

6-16. The initial waves of Armorless Assassins and Crossbowmen are manageable, but the level quickly starts sending in elite Third and Cleanup Squad archers; these are annoying as is, but the real threat is the stage condition that gives them a whopping. The only Medic that can reach that particular tile without using their skill is an E2 Kal'tsit, the boss can instantly end a run if her Deathless Inferno kills any of the civilians, not helped by the fact that all her other attacks are also designed to do heavy area damage and global, The same as a full Annihilation, whereas other mini-Annihilation MO stages generally had 200, Faust needs a tanky unit or fast-redeploys to block his attacks, Big Ugly needs to be killed early with Arts so the High Priest doesn't just run into the base after the mech's death explosion stuns all your units, the Corrupted/Withered Knights are vulnerable to Arts/physical damage respectively and need to be killed at the same time lest one of them, More Bloodblades spawn in the boss' first phase, which usually leads to their healing being wasted given most strategies don't even try hitting the boss that early on, Start by deploying one on the ranged tile facing your base, so they will start shooting at the furthest Slug first, then retreating them once the explosions start getting close to them and then slapping down another Sniper in the opposite direction to mop up the rest, Good job trying to, since wide-range medics can't quite reach them and their healing is reduced on the outer tiles, her new form as the Winter's Scar is considerably worse than she was in 4-10, instakilling black ice from 4-10 that bypass invincibility. Basically, if a map has High Tide, it will occasionally flood, making it so that you can't deploy on flooded tiles without specific Stickers (basically equippables exclusive to DH maps). If you thought 5-10 was maddening to play, you haven't seen anything yet.
The stage took inspiration from 4-10, the stage where the players encounter FrostNova for the first time.
Been playing for about a year, I generally skip E1s in favor of beelining to E2, currently got 44 E2s plus eight three star maxs. Most levels are doable if one has the correct tools and/or strategies to approach it.
And while you're dealing with the Motorboats, a steady trickle of Diver Leaders (who will often have invisiblity and inflated ATK from the high tide) and Explosive Boats will come from the left of the map just to throw a wrench into your plans.
On top of that, the bottom right of the map contains four Dockworker Leader Motorboats, which can screw players over due to two of them starting to move fairly early, likely far before players have any chance to shore up respectable defenses with what little time they have considering that you need both 3-block units and massive damage to kill them.
Since the area is mostly empty except for that, spawn camping would be the most likely solution, but the Incursion Point there also spawns Sarkaz Sentinels and Sentinel Leaders from time to time, possibly sending the entire wave of buffed Sarkaz barreling into your lines if you trigger one while spawn camping. Fanatic Siege/Twisted Cage pits you in a tiny 3x3 box staffed with Veteran Junkmen and Desperate Fanatics.
You best hope that you've grinded out a lot of Tier 2 and 3 Stickers, because. I know calling in a support means you cant auto deploy a mission even if you 3 star it, but from what I've seen, many are suggesting to complete it for the rewards / weekly cap increase then run annihilation 2 as it's faster.
Been playing since the start of global/EN server at a generally relaxed pace, but I've made it a priority to bring everyone up to E1 and Skill Level 7 at the very least.
That's a bit much, 375 on Lungmen Outskirts is pretty far and Chernobog is way simpler. Originiutant enemies will appear on the bottom lane to go through two different paths, and Redmark Elite Eradicators will appear to snipe down any Operators or bombs who are deployed on the left side, which is mostly unprotected from the sandstorm. As for Annihilation, I can't seem to get more than about 160 kills yet.
You have the buffed Essence of Evolution stationed at the left side of the map surrounded by restricted tiles and a few ranged tiles, making your options for actually hitting the thing limited.
Midnight's whole deal was like, well my old life is gone now, might as well take the chance to try something new and so he signed on as a combat op. Your only ranged tiles are boxed around an 8-tile space staffed by respawning Unmanned Heavy Explosive Boats, and their explosions are strong enough to one-shot most of your ranged operators, thus crimping most of your reliable sources of damage and healing.
I couldn't find them on my regular sites.
It may not display this or other websites correctly. Both results aren't particularly appealing for that 3 star clear.
The combination of Nova Elites and Nightzmora Followers in particular can easily cause a, It's very telling how hard this fight is when many of the "low rarity operator" strategies you might come across require, NL-S-3 has 3 routes to the blue box where initially manageable waves of enemies approach from multiple directions.
The enemy spam is absolutely relentless compared to other stages, even the other challenge stages in the event.
And heaven help you if you can't bust down the Recidivists before they free themselves during these times - and the challenge mode adds one that, BH-7 brings back the enemies and mechanics from Twilight of Wolumonde, but ramped up immensely.
The top one comes with Senior Casters that can dismantle an early defense if allowed to advance past their lane, the right one has pressure from heavy enemies like Loggers and Junkmen that can easily overwhelm you, and the left one comes with a combo of Casters and Heavy Defenders, along with, 4-7 Normal Mode and it's Challenge Mode can be daunting for newer players, especially if they don't have any units capable of inflicting Silence.
Both of these are subjected to ridiculous HP and DEF steroids that make them borderline impossible to kill in time unless you have some extremely potent Arts damage nukes like Eyja (, Escaped Bee Colony/Drone Landing Zone is a.
Previously i'd been getting to the annhilation missions through the banner in the terminal, so I didn't even know that there. I think I've got two or three auto-sets and the last ones I've built about a year ago or so, I guess?
CB-EX7 from Code of Brawl. Also, to clarify, despite the ordering of the stages in the menu, Chernobog is the first annihilation stage and the easiest, followed by Lungmen Outskirts, and then either Lungmen Downtown or the rotating stage depending on how difficult any given rotating stage is.
Players must find a way to bypass the initial stage of the map (AKA putting down the four Spec Ops Caster Leaders) before they could even think of finishing the Challenge Mode.
To make matters worse, your deployment limit is initially capped at 5 before upgrading the Control Terminals, limiting your defensive lineup for quite a while.
Players can be put in a very bad spot if they don't have a lot of healing - and if they have.
The final and hardest part starts when several Defense Crusher Leaders enters into the fray along with Crownslayer, both rushing the right and left lane respectively.
And just to screw with you, two, Following in its footsteps is Abandoned Mine, the permanent map of, In general, Integrated Strategies in and of itself is a gigantic, Bob's Farm/Wine Merchant Transport Team is a straight-line, straightforward mapexcept a horde of, While it is possible to take advantage of an.
So maybe go that route - call in a support to get your first 400 kills and related rewards then run one of the other two to max out your originium rewards. Their friends would see it and if they had that Op lvled they could put it as their support and gain some extra credits for it being used in the same time period. If the player had been focusing too much on managing the other Sarkaz, this is fairly likely, often causing a leak since the final few waves are fairly tanky and come in larger numbers.
before she drops dead from the status effect, who is more geared towards fighting instead of healing, owing to her lower ATK compared to other ST Medics and prioritizing in healing herself and Mon3tr no matter how low other operators' HPs are, making the extra range moot for healing other operators, starts instantly turning Gramophones hostile, let the two Colossi or Mudrock through instead of fighting them, 2-10 is one of the first major difficulty spikes for a new player, featuring what is likely the most complex map they've seen, with 3 lanes to defend; each comes with a Medical Rune to help your units stay healthy, but they also come with independent threats from enemies that are very strong at that point in the game. Well, now I'm convinced that HG actually wants sleep comps to be a thing, on that topic, does sleep stop the bursts from the Crawlers? The two ranged tiles don't help a whole lot, since the Fanatics can also hit those.
However, the true threat lies in the bare minimum of startup time given on the stage - enemies will start pouring in en-masse almost as soon as the stage starts, including Dockworkers that are very tanky and can stun player Operators to oblivion, if they weren't knocked out first due to the DEF reduction High Tide Corrosion causes.
If not, then get used to dying due to the extra damage or left unable to even heal/retaliate in time.
The stage consist of three ground lanes, two of which the enemy will actively use to enter the player's base, with FrostNova appearing from the top lane and gradually traveling from one lane to another until she reaches her assigned Protection Objective at the bottom right of the map. You are using an out of date browser.
Most people just follow room sets that you buy from an event.
Hopefully I could get one to borrow or might have to look into a slightly different strat (hesitant to try to get her all the way up now just for the one clear if the difference between Anni2 and 3 is so small in terms of efficiency).
Of the self-made one I've got a music room that pretty much doesn't have a single bit of space left on the walls, what with all the guitars and banners hanging there, and I think I've got a "Leithanien Night" kinda theme going on with another one (night sky wallpaper, white furnishings, a bookshelf).
And there's already 4 of them at four corners of the map, making deploying operators anywhere unsafe. Next week I think i'll try beating Chernobog.
If you don't have anybody that can soak up lots of hits on top of the 50% damage while you try to set up a defense, either the ranged units or Hounds will cut them down in a flash. I burned all of it trying to farm enough of everything to hopefully finish at least until NL-10.
Generating DP fast and deploying key ops early are key to success in this stage. I wish I could set my factories farming Orundium, but there's no way I have the resoruces for that, no matter how much I want to ten-roll and hope to pull Skadi.
While the enemies might not be a problem to decently leveled operators, FrostNova herself is a whole other story, with her heavy Arts damage, Ice Nova that slows ASPD and makes it harder to kill her, and her black ice attack that strikes randomly and is an invariable, While challenge modes are supposed to be deliberately unfair, few come close to the level of insanity that is node 5-7.
And while the Leithanien Whisperers trying to contest them are annoying, the problem lies in the isolated top lane, where a steady stream of, WR-EX-8, especially in the later half of the map where Indefatigable Blindies and Dazzled Smarties start appearing.
Not enough trouble yet? Yeah, it seemed like a good deal until I realized that you only get 20 per batch. If you do have those, the Bullies become a walk in the park, but then the problem becomes the buffed Wraiths and Wraith Leaders that will start appearing later into the level.
Teaser for Hypergryph's Next Title: Ex Astris, Helpful Strategies for the Struggling Doctor, Obsidian Festival "Tweets" - Alive Until Sunset. However, shortly into the stage, Knight Crests are automatically deployed on the isolated left side of the stage before members of the Nova Knightclub start appearing, with the stage condition reducing the cooldown of their Glimmering Touch and, NL-S-4 is difficult for similar reasons as NL-EX-8.
Both of these can only be blocked by the operators with same attribute, and the latter can collide to deal massive area damage if you let them. While on paper it looks nothing as difficult as Annihilation 3, several factors made it particularly micromanagement intensive still. Furthermore, one specific enemy wave will just walk right through the western set of roadblocks (and there is no way to deploy anyone to block them before they can reach it, due to the tiles west of the roadblocks being undeployable) and instantly destroy them.
On the northwest area of the map, it's fairly empty. Better keep those fast redeployment operators handy. Not only that, the map will also have the player handle all three different lanes of varying difficulty, and with the game limiting how many operators maybe deployed, it requires careful balancing as the Medics, Defenders, and powerful DPS can't be placed to watch every lane. This will be the first stage where the players encounter FrostNova, and it doesn't disappoint.
Naturally, the enemies are all Yeti Squad members who will mercilessly freeze your units while the Icecleavers tear through them. Said mission? So on the note of Annihilations, anyone have a good way to deal with Lungmen Downtown? The key part of this guide is aggro swapping at 340-350 kills.
To start, you need to set up your defensive line quickly, as the high tide that shows up quickly will screw you over if you can't deploy your operators in time, unless you brought certain stickers that ignore the deployment restrictions caused by tides. Code of Brawl's CB-EX8 is a nasty one. While thankfully there are reinforced dirt mounds to protect the entire area on the right side, several Redmark Elite Infiltrators will attempt to destroy the dirt mounds on the isolated top lane of the map; should both of the dirt mounds be destroyed, the Originiutant Tumors spawned by the boss will switch to the top lane and waltz straight into the blue box.
Its Challenge Mode version, takes the difficulty up a notch, doubling the amount of time needed for the Control Terminals to be activated, in which Bullies have already shown up to ruin your day. The hardest part of the map starts as soon as FrostNova enters the second lane from the right, opposite from where the regular enemies enter from the left; meaning the player has to contend with her underlings constantly spawning from the left side and FrostNova on the right side, which is harder than it looks. Still working on getting her up (currently E1 lvl 10 SL 4, only been here a week cut me some slack). letting others know what they're looking for. First of all, the map has a passive condition that makes your units suffer even more severe Corrosion and ASPD penalties from the High Tide and increased Corrosion from any enemy that inflicts them, alongside significantly boosting the stats of every enemy - essentially a Challenge condition that's active, DH-MO-1 is the culmination of all of the DH-S stages and the mother of all rages in the event. Valley Ambush/Beast Fighting pits you against a rush of Hounds, along with four crossbow soldiers in the corners and a Mortar Gunner. The enemy spam is absolutely relentless, and almost every enemy on the map is designed to either freeze your operators or exploit said freeze to deal massive damage, on top of the two Originium Ice Crystals periodically sending out freeze waves to make said ice enemies' jobs easier.
This map has multiple open routes in which enemy units can find their way to the blue base. 6-16 works similarly, with FrostNova on the top lane and common enemies in the bottom. Every single ranged enemy now can hit half a map away with their arts; even worse, the Spec Ops Caster Leaders cast two art spells at once, putting two operators anywhere on the map at risk of being obliterated by defense piercing arts at any given time.
I personally think mining orirock, producing originium shards for rolls in your factories and switching your trading posts to orundum orders is not a good use of your time. And then there are these, where even experienced players can get stuck on. The Challenge condition ups the ante by doubling the effective fuse time of the Explosive Boats while giving every enemy a large stat boost, making its already glaring difficulty somehow even worse.
Press J to jump to the feed. The Defense Crusher Leaders are especially a problem as they are fairly tanky on top of the annoying stun they are known-for which can't be cancelled without Silence.
I had to spend hours every day for like 3 days to farm up M6 for Nightingale and Shining 1 time, and that was already having some of the mats ready and using green certs, Random other observation - Savage's first paradox file has an instrumental version of, If I wasn't stuck at my 6pm to 6am worknight this would be me ATM.
Land of Rust and Smoke/Clouds Overhead and Radioactive Dust/Red Mist are both very difficult for similar reasons, namely the poison gas permeating the map that causes all Operators to take damage over time. Thanks to whoever pointed out that the mangas are on Mangadex.
This problem is somewhat solved if the player has Angelina; even then, considering how she works, timing is still fairly crucial.
As a final proverbial punch to the gut, there's a near hidden spawn at the bottom right of the map that many players may miss if they haven't looked closely at the map's structure prior to entering the stage as it can be hidden by any operator portraits they haven't deployed - and woe betide you if you miss it, since it'll eventually start spawning Agent Leaders.
There are a total of 6 Gramophone towers you have to wrangle under control, which you'll need most of to take out the groups of bulky elite enemies sent at you, especially the Hexed Colossi who are basically invincible to everything else. Should bump that up to 45 soon, just got a few more levels on Flametail to go. Rusthammer Battle is a whole other can of worms. Beat this level with 6 operators in the squad, tops (this includes friend supporters, so if you bring one, you can only bring 5 of your own).
Not helping are the Yeti Squad enemies that will mercilessly exploit your frozen Operators, particularly the Yeti Icecleavers (and two leaders) that have insane bulk and deal ridiculous amounts of damage to frozen units. The area is infested with, If you aren't particularly thrilled with dealing with Enraged Possessed Soldiers in the levels that they appear in, how about dealing with an, While all Extreme Mode stages are purposely designed to be, GT-HX-3 is the first event stage to cause players trouble due to its large difficulty spike. OF-EX6 from the Obsidian Festival event is particularly difficult, even for experienced players. Scattered throughout the arena are Knight Territory Wanderers who are on standby unless your operators spot them or a certain amount of time has expired. The map is fairly simple, albeit with Roadblocks that enemies will periodically break to change their pathing.
Unless I've swapped it out?
How about the fact that High Tide induces a massive ASPD penalty to submerged units while also building up Corrosion at an alarmingly fast rate, alongside extra Corrosion when an enemy attacks them.
I got a replica of Perfumer's room, a Dossoles Spa, a replica of a Nearl Family room (replacing the replica of Kal'tsit's office), and an Acahualla-themed lounge.
To put things into perspective: this is the one map where it's damn near impossible (but.
I am jealous of the already established players actually having to work to burn excess sanity.
Torrent of Fact and Fiction/Dangers Abound.
Everyone knows the drill by now, they act as a sort of soft timer on any. One can wonder how a player is supposed to do so when the level is already daunting enough as is. There are 3 main paths the enemies can take to the objective, and the entire map is darkened except for a single City Neon in the center, with the lack of Knight Crests forcing you to use your units carefully to reveal the map and make space. At that point even the time investment is impressive. TVTropes is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. Doctors could put up an Op they're looking for (maybe for a period of time? It puts you into a battle against, Annihilation 3: Lungmen Downtown has gained infamy for representing a huge. As for Annihilation, I can't seem to get more than about 160 kills yet.
DM-MO-1: The Town of Taba. Depending on the player's deployment pattern, they can become either a nuisance or a deadly threat that can handily kill the defending operator of the lower Protection Objective. MB-EX-8 can be a real hair-puller, especially if you lack high DPS.
Finally, the map spawns consist of both Sniper Leaders and heavily DEF-buffed Ergate Leaders, which cause a difficult to counter combination where Sniper Leaders will effectively permastun your DPS operators while the Ergate Leaders run straight through your lines.
