View Full Version : level 3 challenges make me angry

05-29-2011, 05:25 PM
and hulk out wtf im stuck on all level 3 challenges, the multiple task one is just a joke, the transport one they dont let me out the spawn once i get near the end and the tower defense one i just get bum rushed constantly.

iv tried the easy difficulty thing and that doesnt seem to make a bit of difference, i also tried the new character thing n tbh that didnt help any at all

is there any proven way to get thru these and what are the best weapons to use

05-29-2011, 05:36 PM
the first thing i did was doing the challenges and i went through them pretty easy with a new character and easy settings.

i donīt know what advice to give but my weapons were:

Galactic mp and the secondary was this rapid fire gun you have selected from the beginning as your sec.

tower defence was pretty easy because of the lights over the doors, you can easily kill them while they are still in this floor. donīt forget you got landmines but they were rarely a help.

on escort i had around 4 minutes left when i finished, they donīt spawn endlessly, if there are 6 enemys around take your time and kill them first, use your (broken) robot as cover when reloading and youīll have enough time to repair it when you killed all of them.

be more objective is tricky, i either totally screwed up but when i finally got it, i had nearly 30-40% of time left. the video guide from maka is helpful on this mission. make sure you kill at least 3 enemies when they are crowded and defending your objective, so you have time to repair, hack etc...

parcour, not much to say...

New character is the way to go, its still tough, but 100 times easier then with a leveled character

I did it with a new character. I created a character to be SPECIFICALLY an Engineer. And I took him through all challenges (after all, two of them are Engineer specific). I did the "multiple objective" ones by simply rushing most of the objectives and murdering four or five of the enemies at their defense point before doing what I could. It took a while to repair and hack, but the first and last objectives were easy since you could just rush 'em. I saved the Parkour This challenges for last (nobody shoots at you, so they're the easiest since it's just about memorization of the level and being fast). I next did the "escort the bot" ones. I didn't upgrade my engineer at all, I just went in without giving myself anything except the default guns and default abilities. I spawn camped the doors while remaining close to the bot. I even used the bot as cover most of the match. The last one will give you the most trouble, but that's just 'cause they go out of their way to disable it. But, with a new char, they are happy to let you repair it while they're guarding it. And when I finished those, I was level 5, with 5 points, and I threw all my points into turrets and other Engineer abilities, kept my default guns, and then did Tower Defense. I blazed through that with strategically placed mines, good aim, and very well-placed turrets. Tower Defense was actually the easiest of the three. Finally, I threw my points into everything I wanted as an Engineer and then did the Parkour stuff.

The whole thing took something like two hours or so. Wasn't too bad. But you DEFINATELY need to have a new char (My level 16 Soldier couldn't do any of the level 2 challenges at all). And being an Engineer definately helps out a lot too. Try not to level up much, or at all during the challenges either. Higher your level, harder the bots and more auto-aim they are.

I beat them at level 20, but I switched the body types for the missions Parkour and TD, light for Parkour and heavy for TD helped a bit. Frustrating for sure though.

05-30-2011, 04:54 AM
I did them at Lv20 also.

My body type or each challenge:

-Be More Objective: Medium/Light
-Tower Defense: Heavy
-Escort: Heavy
-Parkour: Light

It also helps if you have some abilities for the Engineer for the TD and Escort challenges.

Personally for me - I found creating a new character the best method to use and completed the following challenges in this order.

Be More Objective - play each * challenge one after the other. Whle I don't want to teach anyone to suck eggs... Speed is the best trick here and to also learn the quickest route/use the shortcuts to each objective.

Escort - again play each * challenge one after the other. Easy one this... Use the drone as cover and just push your way through. Buldpan SMG is a very stable weapon with next to no recoil allowing for quick take downs.

Note -- By now you should have levelled up enough to get the turret ability.

Tower Defense - play each * challenge one after the other. No trick here apart from placing turret on top of one ramp placing a mine and watching what light is active so you can take the down in most cases before they can even exit the door. Would also recommend a shotgun as by the time you hit challeng level 3 wave 3 you will get rushed and the shotgun is perfect for a one hit kill.

Parkour - play each * challenge one after the other. Nothing needed here apart from learning where the nodes are each time and picking fastest route.

I did them all pretty easy with a level 20 character. The only one I barely made was Parkour This because I got stuck behind the finish gate for like 5 seconds panicking, ended up winning with a second left.

All i can suggest is the same as everyone else, make new character. Personally I did most of these right off the bat and then came back around level 7-10 to finish the three star on all of them. I didn't have much trouble except for the Tower Defense, which I changed up my body type from Light to Heavy and changed my weapon loadout and it was easy after that.

For the tower defence ones, raid one of the spawns and hold out for a minute if you're struggling. If it tells you there's someone taking the command post, pop out and kill them. Usually they'll start to rush you, but you can just mow them down.

HIGHLY recommend you start a new character/do the challenges at a low level. I finished all challenges at low level 6.

If you're running out of ammo, just open the supply post and switch to a new weapon, then switch back. It should refill your ammo.

EDIT - I forgot to mention, Be More Objective is by far the hardest one there is. I failed that countless times on my lv14 character, but didn't fail at all on my new character (lv2 or 3 I think).

i havent listened to all the others and have done with my lvl. 18 charakter.

Parkour: not hard, go to youtube and make the same.

Tower Defense: heavy engineer with a lmg, and mow down the enemys at the time they spawn. (i did it the second try) dont forget to capture the command post back, and lay mines (preferable 2) and a turret.

Escort: easiest for me, first try. i used the light bodytyp, with a galacic smg drum mag, use the robot as cover and move forard, if he goes destroyed kill the people (use cover!) and repair him.

Multi task challenge: You need a lot of Luck for it. i have done it the second try, but it is possible to try it 100 times and dont finish sucessful. use the light body type and run. if you die run back. you need a lot of luck with the hack and also with the briefcase. but it is possible.

Good luck!

i understand your pain. I'm not even able to get Be More Objective done at the 2 star rank. Enscort is just a pain, but at least parkour and tower defense was simple.

06-06-2011, 09:54 PM
wth is wrong with the forum-_- Ok, 3rd try.

Did all of the challenges today, without major problems. I died 2-3 times during the escort mission, but never failed the challenges.

Tower Defense: Mow the enemies down as they come out of the doors, always refill your ammo and use the landmine in front of the station (or doors, if you are having trouble).

Multiple Mission Thing: I rushed the first 2 challenges without and used cover on the upper floor to get rid of the enemies, before getting rid of the suitcase

Escort.....Stay back, their spawns are limited

If you are having trouble feel free to add me (including a message pls), i will help you :)
