Death from Above

Showed 50 Locusts the meaning of sky-fire with HOD Command Center.  

You will have the opportunity to use the HODCC two times during the campaign, once in Chapter 1 and again in Chapter 4. You'll likely only get around 25 kills from both, so you'll have to boost a few of these with the Chapter 4 section being the better of the two. Make sure if you're going to reload a checkpoint that you exit the overhead view for the kills to register first.

Seems like a grind too, unless it doesnt disapear all the time. Either way, cool that they're adding something that we saw in the previous dlc pack

This is not done on horde there is a part in campaign where you use this, average 5-15 kills per checkpoint

I agree that chapter 1 is the easiest to do this on

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Chapter 1 the *only* place to do this?
I mean, I guess you could use the one in 4 or 5 where you only hit 3 seeders, but
that'd just be asinine.

I think they mean for horde after you pump a metric fuck-ton of money into upgrading it. But seriously, who actually did it that way?

Can be done in chapter 4 easier, but it takes a bit to get to the point where you can use it. When you get into the shooting screen, focus on killing the grunts that run down the middle. I swear about 15-20 go through. Just make sure you dont kill the last enemy. Come out the view and reload last checkpoint.
