Classic Campaign – Mission 5: Gun Fighter!

A new menace has appeared to show of his range. Deploy troops carefully to combat his tactics!

Mission Strategy

This mission introduces Grit, the indirect-fire specialist. At all times, his ranged units (Artillery, Rockets, etc.) have +1 range and deal extra damage. To compensate for this, Grit’s direct attack units (Tanks, Recon, etc.) are weaker. Keep Grit’s extra range in mind as you advance. Remember that you can hold the B button a unit to check their range.

Grit’s CO Power will FURTHER increase his range by +2 (in addition to his base increase, this is a total of +3 range). He will likely get his CO Power around the time you reach the bridge, so be aware. Like always, the AI will prioritize APCs, so you can use this to protect your more important units.

Since Grit has no way to create more units, as long as you keep control of your two Bases you will eventually win. However, this mission is very difficult to score a perfect score. The Turn by Turn Walkthrough below will get you that illustrious perfect 300 S-Rank.

HQ Capture: Keeping your APC safe is going to be tough in this mission. If you are struggling to beat Grit along the road, consider massing Mechs and pushing them across the river, approaching the enemy HQ from the west. With enough Mechs, you can beat out Grit’s Tank and Rockets, but his Medium Tank will likely be an issue. With the Rockets cleared though, your other forces will be much safer as they approach.

Keep your APC safe (or build a new one) and you can use it to bring along a fresh Infantry to capture the HQ if your Mech strike force gets wiped out. Use your low health units to body block the enemy from attacking your capture unit.

Defeat All Enemies: If you are aiming to destroy all enemies, you’ll need to deal with Grit’s Medium Tank on his HQ. He will not move it until it can attack one of your units, so you don’t have to deal with it until you’re ready. If you are later into the mission, you’ll likely have enough income to build a Medium Tank or a Rocket. Just make sure that you keep your counter unit safe from Grit’s Rockets.
