DLC Impossible sp?
 
Is it just me or do the new levels seem impossible to solo? I made it to Mars with a team of 4 mechs when others joined. Maybe my loadouts were off though I tried many different ones.

The only one I had trouble with solo was the third level "Settlement". That shit took me a good 15 tries and I gave up and got my 2 buddies in there. Survival solo is a joke though, good luck getting those achievements without a team.

I just did Swamp solo. Sniper turrets kick ass.

Amen to that! I did both survivals solo utilizing the pierce sniper turrets. pretty much used only those with just a few shred turrets on an engineer chassis. Was actually pretty easy.

I did all the survival maps solo, not trying to brag or put you down or anything. It just takes practice and sometime some lucky breaks on the waves.

Hospital I did wave 70 solo
Swamp I did wave 62 solo
Settlement I did wave 54 solo

I tried most of these many time with 1-3 friends and we never broke wave 50. The mobs are actually easier to beat solo than in a group.

for Hospital and Swamp I use the following:
Selker Mk V
The Perforator in right trigger slot 1
BO-7T6 The Hole Puncher in left trigger slot 1
D-Pad Up Camo Shotgun Turret
D-Pad Down Super Shredder Turret
D-Pad Left Massive Mine Layer
D-Pad Right Piercing Sniper Turret

for Settlement i used
Honeychurch Mk IV
Massive Magnet Launcher in right trigger slot 1&2
D-Pad Up Piercing Sniper Turret
D-Pad Down Super Shredder Turret
D-Pad Left Dampening Generator Mk III
D-Pad Right Impeccable Collection Pad

Key to all of these are the Piercing Sniper Turrets... put them in places that they will hit lines of mobs.. protect them with machine gun turrets or shotgun turrets...

use mine near spawn points and protecting your bases, and alone well traveled paths. And collect that scrap as fast as possible.

Just keep trying :)

I feel your pain, I did the main game solo and managed to get all golds but the dlc feels designed for co-op. I finally managed it using some of the newer items in the shop. I did it (after watching a Youtube vid for spawn locations) by using an assault mech with 3 death drizzlers and a broadcaster lazer from the shop. Unfortunately most of the methods I've read so far (including those above), always seem to use weapons got in later levels - they don't help at all. I also only loaded damper and flack emplacements and moved near them to help with the aerial enemies.
