Mission 055: HI Ho, Solo!

Alright, given the (lack of) submission recently, I’ve decided to give everyone a break (including myself). I’m going to be changing from a monthly mission cadence to a quarterly one. Given that we’re a month in to 2023Q2, I’ll just make this mission a 2 month one.

This is a blame Adam situation, where he came up with this idea! Basically the idea was that there are lots of useful “link filler” HI options lurking in the Army builder that rarely see play (even in links). To encourage their use, Adam suggested a mission where you take a solo, non-character heavy infantry that costs no more than 1 SWC. That means no links, etc.

The spirit is to do stuff like take the Riot Grrl Specialist Operative or something, although you can certainly take a Swiss Guard hacker. I’ve found personally that solo HI, even combi-armed ones, are quite useful. Here’s some examples:

Riot Grrls can kill bears, for example:

The Mk12 Kriza is a good DZ clearance tool as well:

Or even just pushing a flank with a Brigada:

Not Solo, but an ORC with climbing plus is pretty good as well:

Give it a shot! Let us know how it went!
