Campaign on Hard - Help Thread

Ok, so I guess this thread can be used for discussing strategies/help for any of the campaign. I will start.

I am at the part where you are supposed to escort the convoy across the bridge. This part is so poorly designed I almost don't want to bother. Those dumbass convoys keep charging in as fast as they can. Then, I have gotten killed by my own team's bots a few times and the enemy bots pretty much only target me .

I manage to get past the 2 heavy armors but I usually die after that and of course they spawn you at the back nowhere near the action so I have to run all the way over again and by that time I obviously fail mission. Seriously who hired the damn drivers for those convoys?

Anyway, for those that got past this on hard did you find a decent strategy? Also, I was using machine gun, rockets, grenades, and healing tool for my loadout...maybe there is a better combo. Wish I could use a sniper but its not available.

I am stuck here, too. The tanks always either stop moving or get destroyed in two seconds. Then the convoys fall to their deaths. It is ridiculous.

Yeah, i had alot of troubles on that part of the campaign. Shit is no joke on hard. I tried about 25 different times. Finally got the best solution. When you spawn at the checkpoint to meet the convoy. Wait for the supply depot to drop. Get a loadout with a rocket launcher, machine gun DET and healing. Major points to lookout for: Enemy deployable rocket drop after first overview. kill that with 3 shots from your rocket launcher. then work on the enemies. Be sure to stay ahead of the convoy. Only one truck needs to get through. Go to where the 2 heavys spawn, do not use your DETs. use your rocket launchers until at least one truck passes you. leave the area no matter if the heavys are alive or not. rush into the next area where there will be 2 deployable enemy rocket things. one on the right and one on the left. set all 5 det on the spawn point of one of them. run over to the other and get ready to shoot your rockets at them. you should not die, just need to hurry. after that, kill any enemys that have rocket launchers and heal the convoy and you pass! This is the best advice i could give for this situation. Have fun and lemme know if you need more help elsewhere.

good god, this convoy part is ridiculous. I attempt to stay in front of my convoy, but as soon as enemies spawn in the last part, i immediately cannot see with all the smoke from rocket launchers =/.

The convoy part is 80% luck. All you can do is take out the rocket turrets, hope your convoy AI doesn't screw up, and go around healing it constantly.

So true. It is luck. Like, I tried about 10 times and constantly failed. Put it down, came back the next day. Started it up. Kept dying over and over (to the point where I couldn't get shots off) and cleared it in one try. I don't know what I did, so I can't offer any advice other than just be lucky and keep trying. Good luck!

Yea I liked this game at first, but am starting to hate it due to poorly designed missions like this one. Idk how many times I played this part of the mission and still can't beat it. I mean common, at least give us decent AI teammates. Ridculous.

I put the campaign part of the game away for a couple days at different points. It is refreshing to come back to it a few days later after some MP play time and try again.

the mission with the convoy is not even that hard. took me about 6 tries. for the last part make sure you get there before the convoy and get ready for the turrets to drop. just destroy those and then focus on the soldiers.

I found the best way to do it is repair. Max out your shields+repair speed etc so that you're a repair machine. Hide behind the tanks/apcs and repair them, and when youre out of repair use autoaim and kill a dude with the assault rifle. After that go back to repairing. You need to use rockets on the first depoyable rocket turret, though.

I tried that once after trying to be a badass and kill everything and i succeeded first try.

You can get lucky by the bad AI driving. When I played this level, I dreaded it. However, the rear tank with the convoy vehicle behind it was stuck on the bridge. So I basically cleared the way, all the way to the end and then team killed the tank (rocket launcher) and I just had to wait for the convoy to reach the end since I killed everything and for some reason my team mates were invincible (except for shields) (which also got the heavy mechs off my arse and onto theirs, while I rocketed them).

TBH IMO I believe that the rocket turrets are the biggest threat, then the heavies and the rocket launching infantry, and finally, the regular infantry.

While this game is not the worst game I have played, it is the worst put together. On the mission you guys are talking about I can not pass it no matter what I do because the guys in between the tanks are firing missles at themselves, me, and my squad. Usualy the tank out in front dies before the first stop, the second guy kills himself there (firing missles at the ground around him when enemies are 200m in front), the second tank is when the heavies come and the fourth guy kills him with missles. Then I spend my time trying to heal the last guy whilst he is shooting missles at himself and me, then it dies because I die and respawn-er drop down or w/e too far back. This is frustrating and has nothing to do with "strategy" as I see all these guys trying to defend this piece of crap game. Holding A while straffing for this Auto Aim is bullcrap and no skill is involved, therefore, no strategy. A good strat is a good defense, or shot first. Anyways I just rented it so no money wasted. Im going to check out the multi then take it back.

i just blow up all the oponents when they come down by putting mines under their asses, then i blow up the turrent and kill myself to get my mines back

when you get to the heavy armors hope that they start targeting your friends and not the convoy pump mass rockets in them ez

after that its the real luck part, for my win the convoy just ran through ignoring the enemies who started shooting 1 of my teammates and i could just shoot them off, this was after dieing once while taking out the turrets ofc!

i think they'll run through if they don't have obstacles in their way

I'm on this bridge part. I've failed it 3 times and thought I'd come here.

So, a turret or two gets dropped. You have to for sure take them out.

Then I see a guy stop the tanks in a mech suit. That guy has to for sure be taken out? I haven't got past this part.

Then I guess there are two more turrets and then I'm pretty much done?

My number one problem with this game is controls. I'm playing the PC version. Maybe I should switch to controller for this part. E button locks on to a target, but so many times I hit R to reload. Nothing like reloading 10 feet away from a dude and getting wiped out.

Just made a few more tries. I almost had it to. I got to the spot with the 2 missile turrets. I got one of them, but not both. I think if I had got the second one, I would of made it through.

Problem is I have no idea what I did different on that attempt. I've tried like 10 more times and didn't even get close on any of them.

...and I did it. Gave it a few more tries and lucked out. I definitely took some advice from here. Put mines on the landing pad for one of the last two missile turrets and took out the other with my own missiles. I had one tank left and after the turrets were gone, gave it some repair and we made it.

I got it on my first try, it is a pain though the stupid AI ends up shooting you or each other than the enemy.

Try this strategy:
Place the remote charges and use a mid-range ballistic weapon to ambush the rocket turret and the five or so guys that drop down.

Then the most important bit: Run around the left side of the building as fast and as far away as you can. If done properly the heavy armour will not spawn inside to ambush the convoy. Then they can drive through on their own (I did it with only one convoy that had about 25% health).

I know it's been a while since anybody posted in this thread, but this convoy mission is the most trouble I've had with ANY game I've played. I've tried all the different ideas in this thread but it's still impossible for me which sucks because I'm loving this game so much. It's just this one mission that makes me rip my hair out
