"What Power Outage"

Best way I found was keep both Gauss Hogs intact up to the generator bit, then park one on either side of the center area. Park em so they can have a good angle on one of the 2 enemy drop locations, whilst also having a shot at the other in case they get overrun. Obviously activate the turrets as it makes it even more easy, every enemy will prioritize them over you and your Gauss-ness so its super free and easy kills. Got it on the first try this way

I dont think anyone should really be having a problem with this since they give you more than you need for weapons. If done right the Marines shouldn't even need to fight. Quite honestly did not expect a defense objective to be so damn easy.

Those mantises that are there basically trivialize this achievement even on legendary. I didn't even notice there were gauss hogs to be honest.

Guass hogs?

Where?

I didn't see them either. My bud and I used the Mantises as well. Parked our asses directly in front of the generators, I took left, he took right and we just pulverized enemies as they came into view. The right side took a bit more, because Hunters dropped in on that side. The left... all I got were Elites and Grunts.

The silliest part of that being the achievement is that where the generators are located literally funnels all the attackers for you. Sound strategy for defense but as a challenge.... You don't have to move much.

There's one for sure at the spawn, then one parked where the Marines are defending the generators.

I havent played this solo yet. Do you really get a Mantis when you play by yourself? That sounds so OP in that little courtyard with the stomp n missiles.

You can get the mantis in co-op also, me and a buddy of mine played it yesterday. They were up by the generators on that landing platform looking thing.

It took me three tries with randoms to get it. The first round we seemed to just get unlucky, but the second round's failure was purely due to the fact that one of my "team mates" kept running us over with a warthog. Moron.

I've already got the achievement but where the hell were the Manti?! Maybe it's because I did it on Co-Op?

Warthogs appear with 3/4 people while Mantises appear with 1/2.

It seems to be a lot easier doing this with randoms than going through the hassle of getting a group together, fixing a time etc. I got it on my second try.
