Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • Because the Judo Mech has armor, you can still hit it with the cluster artillery without taking damage.
  • Look for an enemy two spaces away from a deadly tile -- vice fist can throw them into it.
  • You can use the repositioning abilities of the squad in succession: first place two enemies adjacent to each other, then get bonus damage on knockback.
  • Many pilots could synergize with this squad. Henry Kwan can more easily get into position to throw enemies. Harold Schmidt gives a free additional "weapon" to knockback enemies. Chen Rong or Archimedes can get the Judo Mech out of a bad spot after attacking -- compensating for the limited choices of tiles to attack from. Prospero's flight makes the Gravity Mech's movement much more versatile, and helps you pull enemies into deadly tiles.
  • Always check the Attack Order to look for chances to kill an enemy with friendly fire before they get their own attack off!
