    Mission 71: Death Queen

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Bees, Death Queen

    You’re already surrounded as the mission starts. Pick a direction and shoot through the bees to escape. Clearing this area will lead into the Death Queen’s lair.

    The giant Queen bees are just like the King Spiders – bigger, more powerful, but an easy target. Kill the first Death Queen through the narrow passage into its chamber, then deal with the second one before it gets close. It’s needle attack can send your trooper rag-dolling if you’re not careful.

    Mission 72: Machine Squad

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Advanced Transports, Hectors, Deroys, Super Deroy

    The massive UFOs in the distance drop waves of Deroys. Destroy the transports first, then target each Deroy one at a time. Keep moving, the Hectors will continuously pelt your position with artillery until they’re destroyed.

    When the first waves are wiped out, Earth Eaters will drop in to spawn two giant Super Deroys. To help distract them, don’t recruit the nearby EDF soldiers. Let them stand on the main road, and position yourself so the Deroys wander into them.

    Instead of attacking you, they’ll waste time trying to kill the AI soldiers. While they’re busy, just keep shooting.

    Mission 73: Monster Party

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / MLRA-TW (Lv47)
    Enemies: Dragons

    Grab a Missile Launcher and go to town on another swarm of dragons. Its a simple mission – just a slug-match between you and a few waves of dragons, but it can get tough. Take a powerful Assault Rifle or automatic Shotgun to help handle the dragons after they land.

    Mission 74: Labyrinth of Light

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Shield Walkers, Advanced Transports, Ants, Drones, Deroys, Giant Deroys,

    This mission is a pain. Giant shields block your shots everywhere you go, and transports will constantly spawn new waves of enemies. You’ll need long-range weapons to shoot down the transports, but those weapons won’t do much good in the tight confines of the shields.

    Work slow, and take care of every shield unit on the starting dock before crossing the bridge toward the warehouse area.

    Mission 75: City Flaws

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Earth Eaters, Bees, Ants, Red Ants, Spiders, Tunnels

    There’s a line of tunnels spawning bugs along both sides of the canal. Pick a direction and destroy everything before doubling back and taking out the remainder. It’s easy to get overwhelmed if you aren’t aggressive!

    Mission 76: Monster Camp

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Ants, Red Ants, Spiders, Dragons

    EDF actually has some reinforcements for you this time. Use the extra soldiers as bait for the incoming dragons and ants, and wipe out the hordes while they’re bunched up.

    Huge armies of enemies will appear after each wave. Take note of the other EDF positions in the area, and fall back behind them so they can absorb the brunt of the alien’s attacks.

    Mission 77: Fallen Flagship

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Brain, Super Deroys, Hectors, Shield Walkers, Scout Drones, Earth Eaters

    The Ravager leader has been found, and its protected by an army of powerful robots. You’ll have to clear them all out, including the Shield Walkers. Don’t worry about the brain yet, just start taking care of the enemies in the crater.

    Bring a Rocket Launcher or Sniper Rifle and target the huge red “head” above the armored section of the Brain. When the Earth Eaters appear, destroy the red cores to expose the head of the brain. Dish out enough damage, and the leader will retreat.

    Wait for the Shield Drones to walk up the hill to you, or jump down early on and destroy them. There’s no way to leave the crater once you jump in.

    Mission 78: Heaven’s Army

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Advanced Transports, Dragons, Bees

    Nothing special going on here, just another fight against transports as they spawn airborne enemies. Shoot down the transports with long-range weapons, and bring a Missile Launcher or any other favorite weapon to deal with the annoying bees and dragons.

    Mission 79: Encircling

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Transports, Advanced Transports, Bees, Ants, Spiders

    UFOs have the city encircled, and each one opens to drop waves of new enemies. Prepare for a long fight, and bring the right weapons to knock the transports out of the sky.

    Target the weaker ships first if you can, but it’s always a good idea to shoot at any transport while it’s open.

    Cross the bridge over the canal to slow down the enemy onslaught. The trench will slow down the ground-based enemies, but you’ll still have bees on your back. Take down the transports one at a time.

    Mission 80: Divine

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Super Dragon, Dragons

    Another boss appears after taking out the puny giant dragons. The gargantuan Super Dragon is fast, bring Rockets and Sniper Rifles to target the monster’s wings. It’s tough to hit, but if you damage the wings enough, the beast will fight on the ground.

    Like regular dragons, the boss circles its prey before swooping down and spraying the area with fire. Its fire is extremely powerful, so don’t lose track of its position when new waves of regular dragons show up.

    If you can bring the Super Dragon down to the ground, you’ll just need to back away and pelt the creature from a safe distance to win the fight.
