Objective: Destroy Compromised Orochi Buckler Drone

Objective: Destroy Compromised Orochi Sky Drone

Objective: Destroy Filth Compromised Mech

The mission gives you this as the area to do the “test”, however, if you find yourself lacking on the sky drones, head farther west, towards the resurrection point called “The Wall” and beyond.


First up, Buckler Drone, the one which carries a shield. Destroy 3 of these. Unless you can brute force yourself through this done with high DPS, I suggest you add an impair for when the drone does the Hunker Down like this. It will repair it’s shields fairly quickly. Either impair or attack from the back.


And I also suggest you have one or more CC breakers/immunities ready if you’re melee. When the drone uses Combat Repulsor like this, they have a knockdown within the bubble, quite annoying.


The Sky Drones are identified from distance by the blue-glowing left arm tool. Apart from using AoE and column attacks, they pose no challenge. The flying does not shield them from arm, not even melee. Kill 3 of these as well.


The Mech is much like the Smiler Mech over which you probably have faced. Machine gun fire and missile swarm attack, but dies quite easily. Kill one of these. Mission complete!

    Does anyone else have a lot of trouble with the mech?
    Better still, a slick way to beat them?
