Basic Strategies

This mission is notorious for its second wave. The wave starts off with 10 GRU Heavyweight Champs coming down both at the bot spawn and down the right upper side of the map, and continue for about 10 seconds before the tank arrives and throughout the wave. The tank has an abnormally high HP, which can be challenging to users, considering its position so very early in an Intermediate level mission. Taking out the tank is the only way to finish the mission, as the GRU Heavyweight Champs are only a support class. However, they also drop credits when killed, adding to the diversion of team-mates to collect money. The most effective strategy is to have 5 players focus on the tank, while the 6th keeps track of the bomb. This should ideally be done with a Pyro, who can air blast the bomb carrier down the ravine as needed, or a Scout, who can chase down any stragglers and unload into them. Using a Pyro with Phlogistinator as primary tank damage dealer is recommended.

The Intermediate level missions introduce Extended Concheror Soldiers. These bots use their extended buff to return to full health upon a successful rocket hit. In wave 3, each Rapid Fire Soldier is accompanied by 3 Concheror Soldiers, 3 Quick-Fix Medics, and 3 Demoknights, which will often charge ahead. Though this mission does not directly pair Medic bots to Concheror bots, their buff still applies to all robots in the immediate area and are the most vital target to eliminate. Consider having a Demo, Spy, or Sniper exclusively focus on the Medics.

Wave 4 also contains a slightly difficult procession of robots. The wave is a sort of "boss rush", entailing 5 giant Pyros and 10 Super Scouts. The wave begins with a single giant Pyro, and continues on by alternating spawning the 5 Pyros and first 5 Super Scouts, with all giants spawning one by one. Care must be taken to control the Super Scouts, as one can take the bomb from spawn to the Mann Co. bomb hole in mere seconds. consider having a Scout with Mad Milk or a Heavy with Natasha to slow Giant Scouts. Spy with his Sappers can slow Scouts too, but beware Giant Pyros in this case.

In the 6th and final wave, two fairly high HP tanks wheel in successively, a procession not utilized in Advanced level missions. Combined upgrades from previous waves' credits should make a small matter of it. Consider having a Pyro with Phlogistinator to destroy both tanks as fast as possible.

Trivia

  • Disabled code indicates that Sniper robots were originally meant to spawn on wave 4.
