Mission 056: Breaking Links

This one is from TanakoSkyler–how do you deal with a link without a link of your own? Even if you’re playing a sectorial, there might be a more efficient way to handle the situation, or your own link might be degraded!

This is a quarter-long mission, so you need to report by the end of September, 2023.

Sometimes careful (and lucky) placement can punish links too:

Links are hard to deploy, so you can exploit that:

And sometimes, you can exploit a key weakness like MSV:

Links also hate mines:

Really the key is to carefully exploit the key weakness of links: positioning and lynchpin units. It could be as simple as removing the 3rd link team member with a shotgun and then engaging the gun that’s out for ARO.

What are your favorite ways of dealing with links that don’t involve just shooting it from just outsize your DZ with a burst 5 HMG?

The Mission

  1. Play a game and dismantle a link without using your own link!
  2. Write in with your experience for the chance to win fabulous prizes!
