    Mission 31: Charge Phase 3

    Weapons: AF19 (Lv32) / Stingray M2 (Lv20)
    Enemies: Spiders, Ants, Queens

    Another grueling mission with a tough ending. When you reach a massive chamber with a land-bridge, don’t drop down. Cross the bridge to reach the queen’s hall.

    Surprisingly, you’ll have two queens to deal with. These giant ants spray a steady stream of damaging acid. Strafe left or right and roll to quickly get out of the stream.

    They’re huge targets. The first is the hardest it’ll continue to spray acid through the entrance. Draw the ant guards out, then go inside to deal with the queen between acid attacks. There’s a second queen in the darkness ahead.

    Mission 32: Thunder

    Weapons: AF19 (Lv32) / Stingray M2 (Lv20)
    Enemies: Ants, Red Ants, Hectors, Shield Walkers, Drones, Mothership

    The Mothership is back. You don’t need to completely defeat it, but destroying the Genocide Gun is required. Shoot the giant red diamond attached to the huge gun protruding from the bottom of the Mothership to destroy it.

    Once the giant ship’s weapons are destroyed, you can clear out the remaining Hectors and Shield Walkers. With enough of the enemies down, start shooting the exposed red core underneath the Mothership. Eventually, panels will appear and start shooting.

    The upper panels shoot inaccurate laser beams, while the lower panels launch explosive plasma. The explosives are slow, but they’re much more dangerous than the lasers. Destroy the lower panels first. Keep shooting the red core, and eventually the giant Mothership will retreat.

    Mission 33: Infiltration

    Weapons: AF19 (Lv32) / Stingray M2 (Lv20)
    Enemies: Spiders, Web Spiders, Tunnels

    This simple kill mission is complicated by tunnels. Waves of Spiders will spawn from the cave entrances, so you’ll have to move forward quickly. Beware the web spider’s net attacks.

    Mission 34: Convergence

    Weapons: AF19 (Lv32) / Stingray M2 (Lv20)
    Enemies: Drones, Transports, Spiders, Ants, Red Ants, Hectors

    Bring a Rocket Launcher or Sniper Rifle, you’ll need something with 3000m range to deal with the transports in the distance. Shoot the red core whenever they’re open while retreating and fighting the waves of insects they drop.

    Aim carefully, you should be able to shoot the core between the hatch panels. There’s no need to get directly beneath the transports.

    Don’t shoot at the drones. If you don’t get close or shoot at them, they won’t attack you. Save them for later.

    Mission 35: Inferno

    Weapons: AF19 (Lv32) / Stingray M2 (Lv20)
    Enemies: Ants, Red Ants, Drones, Red Drones, Queens

    Prepare for an intense fight. If you haven’t farmed for weapons by replaying early levels on Hard, Hardest, or Inferno – now is the time to do it. A giant horde is coming your way, and there’s no way to handle their numbers without powerful weapons.

    A Queen will appear with several Red Drones after the first wave. Red Drones might be tough, but they aren’t that dangerous. Focus fire on the Queen and kill it before it gets close.

    Mission 36: Starship

    Weapons: AF19 (Lv32) / Stingray M2 (Lv20)
    Enemies: Mothership, Drones, Hectors, Transports

    This is it. The final battle against the Mothership. If you remember the previous encounters, know that destroying the giant gun is your first priority. Destroy the Genocide Gun by shooting the red diamond, then shoot the exposed red core of the Mothership.

    Once the Mothership takes enough damage, panels will appear and start firing. Destroy as many as you can, but take out the lower panels first. Before the Mothership is destroyed, it will deploy massive new guns that can kill your EDF soldier almost instantly. Stay far away from the Mothership to avoid these, and shoot the red circles on the sides of the guns.

    When the mission starts, you’ll want to destroy the transports as quickly as possible. The fewer enemies you have to deal with during this tough boss fight, the better.

    Mission 37: Dense

    Weapons: AF19 (Lv32) / Stingray M2 (Lv20)
    Enemies: Ants, Red Ants, Spiders, Tunnels

    This is a nice breather after the intense fight against the Mothership. Multiple tunnels are dotted around the end of this dock.

    Fight straight down the road, then destroy the shipping containers to give yourself a clean shot against the clusters of tunnels. Bring them down one at a time to end this mission.

    Mission 38: Crossing

    Weapons: AF19 (Lv32) / Stingray M2 (Lv20)
    Enemies: Hectors, Tunnels, Ants, Spiders

    There are tunnels visible right away. The Hectors are armed with artillery, but that’s easy to dodge as long as you keep running. Take down the visible tunnels across the valley first, then deal with the Hectors.

    The first tunnel is left of the road, clearly visible. The second tunnel is up on a hill near the road. It can be tough to eyeball, but it’s there.

    Mission 39: Search

    Weapons: AF19 (Lv32) / Stingray M2 (Lv20)
    Enemies: Ants, Bees

    Destroying the first wave of ants leads to the appearance of a new enemy. Bees are a flying enemy that fire shotgun-spread needles at their target. They’ll stop for a moment to attack, making them just slightly easier to shoot than drones.

    Unlike drones, bees are single-minded and stable. They won’t flop around when shot, so you’ll need to keep moving and shooting to stay alive. To attack, the bees need to be relatively close, giving you an edge if you bring shotguns or assault rifles.

    Mission 40: Waterside Bugs

    Weapons: AF19 (Lv32) / Cascade 1 (Lv10)
    Enemies: Bees, Spiders, Tunnels

    The enemies spawn from the canal beneath the bridge ahead. There are multiple tunnels down there that release bees or spiders. Jump down into the canal to crush the tunnels fast, and this mission shouldn’t be too bad.

    Like any mission with spawners, you can farm for armor or weapons easily. Just destroy the rest of the tunnels until one is left, then clear out the wave as it appears and collect your spoils.
