    Mission 41: Annihilation

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Stingray M4 (Lv40)
    Enemies: Transports, Ants, Red Ants, Earth Eaters, Scout Drones, Advanced Transports, Bees

    After destroying the first two transports, a new and impressive Ravager weapon will appear. The Earth Eaters are massive panels that appear in the sky, blocking out the sun and stopping any air-drops.

    The Earth Eaters come in two varieties so far – red and blue. When the panels in red open, they’ll spawn enemies. The blue panels unfold and fire massive killer beams. Whatever you do, don’t stand underneath the blue Earth Eaters!

    Destroy enough of the panels, and a new type of Transport will appear. These tougher Advanced Transports drop larger waves of enemies, including the new Scout Drones and Bees. Don’t bother destroying the new transport UFO, just keep killing enemies until you’re ordered to retreat.

    Mission 42: Natural Calamity

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / MLRA-30 (Lv21)
    Enemies: Drones, Earth Eaters, Scout Drones,

    The Earth Eaters return and spawn Scout Drones. These slow, stable drones hover above and fire accurate laser beams. When they’re shooting, roll and destroy them as quickly as possible. If they gang up, they can kill your EDF trooper fast.

    Watch out for the blue Earth Eater panels, and try to smash the red panels to halt the flow of Scout Drones. But, they’ll only spawn a finite number of drones. After the first few waves, the mission will end.

    Mission 43: Steel Beast

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Earth Eaters, Deroys

    The red Earth Eaters spawn massive tripods called Deroys. These deadly new Ravager weapons come armed with plasma artillery, lasers, and a stomping attack.

    Stay far away. When the Deroys stand near your trooper, they’ll launch their sharp foot out like a spear. Target the large center with rockets to safely bring the Deroys down.

    Mission 44: Void Ship

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

    The new transports return for another fight. They might be bigger and tougher than regular Transports, but they’re easier to hit from the front and back.

    The core becomes exposed while spawning enemies, with the metal shields only blocking the sides. There’s no retreat this time. Stand your ground and take out every advanced transport as it teleports in.

    Mission 45: Blue Fighters

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

    The Ravagers just keep sending new enemy types your way. This time, the advanced Hectors drop out of the massive transports.

    These blue-hued robots come with upgraded plasma beams. Later, they’ll have a personal shield. There’s no way to shoot through the red shield, you’ll have to hit the Hector from the back or sides.

    Sometimes, that just isn’t possible. When the shielded Hectors are coming straight for you, shoot the exposed gun on their right arm to destroy them.

    Mission 46: Earth Defenders

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Shield Walkers, Ants, Red Ants, Spiders, Bees

    This is a straight-forward mission. Groups of insects and shield walkers are scattered across the landscape. Simply hit each target, one at a time.

    Mission 47: Mountain Pass Trap

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Stingray M4 (Lv40)
    Enemies: Ants, Spiders, Web Spiders, Bees

    The Earth Eaters that appear near the end of the mission aren’t really a threat. The valleys are populated with web spiders. Jump down, or hang out on the cliffs above, and clear the winding passage to reach every group of enemies.

    Mission 48: Fortress Frenzy

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Walking Fortress, Ants, Red Ants, Drones

    The giant Walking Fortress is one of the tougher opponents you’ll face in EDF2025. This giant spawns waves of enemies. When the hatch opens on the chest, the red core becomes vulnerable. Because of the awkward position, the core is especially tricky to hit unless you’re almost directly beneath the walker.

    Watch out for the main cannon on the fortress. It fires explosive plasma blasts – destroy it before going for the core. Hit the vulnerable point enough, and the walker will spawn more laser guns. Destroy those too, they’re incredibly accurate.

    The walker is faster than it looks. Watch its trajectory, the walker will trudge toward the edges of the map before turning around. Put yourself in its path and shoot up when the hatch opens. There’s no need to destroy the thing, once it leaves the map completely you’ll have won the mission.

    Mission 49: Pincer

    Weapons: AF20 (Lv46) / Cascade 2 (Lv31)
    Enemies: Hectors, Advanced Hectors, Ants

    Turn right and punch through the shielded Hectors to the right. If you can avoid the pincer attack, this short mission shouldn’t be too difficult.

    Mission 50: Ravages of War

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

    Just another standard tunnel and bug hunt. Hit each tunnel in your path and clear the nests to finish this filler mission.
