Classic Campaign – Mission 15: Divide & Conquer!

Will Max have both the brains and brawn to satisfy Sonja’s standards?

Mission Strategy

This is your first fight against Sonja. She excels in Fog of War scenarios. All of her units get +1 vision range. In addition, you cannot see the current health of her units. The spot that normally shows a number 1-9 will instead be a “?” denoting that you do not know how much health that unit has.

When fighting Sonja, it is important to keep track of how much health her units have. A good tip is to turn on the combat visuals (if you normally have them disabled) so that you can see how much health the enemy has remaining after combat.

Finally, Sonja’s CO Power further increases her vision range by +1 (for a total of +2). She can also see into Woods and Reefs like they were any other tile. Be aware of her meter if you are moving through the Woods to avoid her Rockets and Artillery.

  • Speed Goal: 8
  • Power Goal: 2

HQ Capture: HQ Capture on this map is actually relatively easy. You can avoid Sonja’s forces by sending a Mech loaded into your APC along the south and then north to the Mountains. Be careful not to push her CO Power too far, as her Artillery can hit your Mech if it can see it. The enemy Tank defending the HQ will not be able to defeat your Mech fast enough to stop you from capturing the HQ (although I may have gotten lucky with an RNG Sonja low damage roll).

However, the number of days this strategy takes will be one too slow for perfect Speed Rank. If you want to get a perfect score, you’ll need to fight your way through the foggy forest. Keep your APC safe from the enemy Rockets and Tanks as you move through the middle. Take out the last defending enemy Tank or block him out to finish capturing the HQ.

Defeat All Enemies: Sonja has multiple Rockets and Artillery hidden in the Woods. If you hold back at your base, her Tanks will come to you. From there you can push out and take down her Rockets and Artillery. Here are where her indirect-fire units are located:

Keep her CO Power in mind as you won’t be able to hide in the Woods the turn it is activated. Luckily her indirect units don’t really cover each other, so you can take them out one by one.
