What's your opinion on using weapons of a different class?

I had enough cores so I tried this, and it was a fantastic addition. I didn't put it on the Ice Mech because I had Cluster Artillery on it, and the push is too good to give it up.
The ability to shoot both on the same turn killed a lot of shit on the map.

It can be super effective late game.

I've only won on hard once, and I think it was when I had Henry piloting the judo mech and he had a rail gun in the second slot. So he could get in close and judo the enemies, or pull distance and hit them with a powerful shot. It was great because nothing else on the Steel Judoka really fills the "high damage at high range" niche.

Sometimes, the veks are just nice enough to get right into your crosshairs, maybe it's because I play the cyborg versions, I didn't even had to move my artillery.

the Rift Walkers are pretty good all things considered.
They are good because everybody can displace and inflict damage (and in the upper range when fully upgraded - the only fact that one of your mech can deal instant 4 damage is great), plus they are very straightforward. Just finished 4-islands hard with them, 2nd island was tricky but otherwise sort of a cake walk, didn't even realized until the end that I pulled four perfect islands.

Sounds like your artillery is hanging out further from the center of the map than you want it to be.
Sure it's safer to be tucked away but at the same time that limits their potential attack angles. Only reason you should be afraid to have them centered is if there are webbing vek on the field.
If it helps your planning, Vek AI intentionally avoids standing on tiles that have smoke, fire, or a timepod on them. ACID is the only status effect they'll blindly douse themselves in.

Ice Mech is supreme easy mode. It makes hard mode look like a walk in a park.
Even without cheese-shield, it can be used to block any hits while stopping any enemy with crossfire. You can eternally block the same spawn. It flies meaning very easy movement.

Ice mech is just pure awesome and contrary to the charge mech, doesn't even need a special pilot to be good and it actually turns into the most OP thing in the game with Bethany or Mafan.

Honestly, I base my island picks on the type of vek on each island primarily. Unless I have a reliable way to deal with certain vek (spiders/blobbers) I tend to avoid them until I do. Vek aside, the acid island is usually the easiest with acid pools to push vek into and mountain destroyers to kill vek with. Not to mention transport belts and teleporters that vek don't take into account when moving. 2nd easiest is probably the first green island. It has pools of water and dams you can use to kill the vek along with tide waves. Ice island is usually the hardest with 'defend the robot factory' missions. It's good practice to leave the ice island until last to maximize your chances of finding an ftl pod in a cracked mountain or ice tile.

Inmate

I've never hand problems with the ice island, as there's usually ice mines, ice ground to break and the robots just have 1 hp. The desert island imo is much harder with few natural pitfalls and those "kill 7 enemies and destroy 2 mountains" kinda missions, especially when I'm playing gimmick squads with little ways to kill directly.

I was planning on making this same post last week but my internet was shit.

Ive done this muliple times to victory and I think its an overlooked strategy. There is nothing more satisfying then equipping lightning fingers on a science mech or giving a prime class an artillery barrage.

If you have the cores and can afford it I think equipping highly expensive equipment is a fantastic idea. It opens up all sorts of strategies and gives your mechs newly acquired versatility.

I feel like Zenith Guard will give you the most trouble.
Funny you say that, I tried them a few times before passing over them. You are correct about them being a massive problem

The order I did them is Custom, Rift and Frozen I did in 1 attempt
It's a bit cheaty since I have Mafaan with Reactor + Move on all these runs.

I just did Flame Behemoths and they took about 3 runs for me to get a perfect, maybe 4 but I dont count runs that I quit before finishing the first Island, they were the toughest because they are so weak on Island 2, I got completely blown out both times on those

The only tips I can say are the most basic ones, go to islands with the weakest enemies, HP wise

Avoid Islands with Psions that give powers you cant deal with, rejen with fire sucks

It is absolutely paramount that you get a weapon that deals 4+ damage for one shoting certain enemies

I was using the Micro artillery for a while, just to have more crowd control and pushing.

I figured as much. Having a combat mech that can't push is a big disadvantage, not to mention that his beam hits cities if they're in the way; ruining your perfect run. The science vessel is underwhelming at best and the charge mech runs out of hp really quickly. I find them to be one of the hardest squads to play well.
I appreciate the encouragement. Glad you guys enjoying the hook run. I'm in the process of uploading the 3x ice mech run for those that are interested. Although it did feel a little easier than I had anticipated I hope it's just as entertaining to watch.

Another tip is to do the Island you hate the most first, if the enemies there are ones you can deal with.

Carnalpleasure

upgrade the artillery range, then hornet damage, then I'd say artillery damage, last is beetle damage with the occasional and obligatory move and eventually health (that's how I did it the two times I played them and won anyway). Of course it depends on the difficulty level, in hard, the two last islands are pretty much infinite alpha spawn so you kinda need good health too.

Overall, never forget that everyone deals the same amount of damage and can push, they are very versatile and can easily control veks despite being weak in damage at the beginning. In the end, every one deals 3 so that's more than enough. Don't hesitate to sacrifice one cyborg if it means saving a critical building, dying is just a feature for them so exploit it.

Always try to line two enemies in order to exploit the hornet and scarab line-up shot. Don't start with scorps in first island if you can, but firefly and leapers are fine.

Buying stuff and even equipping it is pretty costy and their base equipment is very efficient so maybe concentrate on what you have instead of chasing a weapon you'll have a hard time using.

I'm not such a great player so I don't know how to advise you, just like the rift walkers, remember that everyone pushes and everyone damages, making it a very versatile and adaptating team, hornet and beetle have good mobility between flying and dash, artillery should typically remain backwards since it can move in all direction. They are pretty straightforward really, they are just alternate Rift Walkers that can die if you need them too.

All you ever need to worry about is grid defense and objectives.

MPmaster
MPmaster

Flame Behemoths and Rusting Hulks are probably the deepest teams overall, because their area denial allows you to funnel enemies where you want them if used cleverly, and this allows you to make really cool plays particularly in the case of the Flame Behemoths thanks to the swap mech. Flame Behemoths can get tons of push/fire/spawnblock damage in a single round and it makes you feel like a genius, while the Rusting Hulks can meme Veks into complete inaction with smoke. Both squads are playmakers although the Behemoths are probably below average in terms of overall power because they really struggle with multiple alphas and burrowers.

Hazardous Mechs and Steel Judoka have interesting mechanics which make you think about your positioning in terms of trying to manipulate how the Vek position themselves. Hazardous Mechs force you to constantly think about grid damage since their attacks are so chaotic, and you can get some really satisfying plays with both teams thanks to ACID and increased Vek on Vek damage. They aren't as deep as the Flame Behemoths nor the Rusting Hulks, but they're still fun to use.

Frozen Titans and Riftwalkers are just kinda plain. I wouldn't call any squad in this game boring, but these two come closest to it. They're both very straightforward teams and the only real mechanical complexity found with the Frozen Titans is in using the doubleshot mech to hit a Vek and unfreeze your ice mech in the same turn.

Zenith Guard and Blitzkrieg are just frustrating to use. Both squads feel really limited in terms of their options at any given time and the shield/hook mech are both very boring science mechs. They also both heavily suffer in unit defense missions. Blitzkrieg would really benefit from being able to re-orient the direction of the rock's knockback.

It's strange btw that they don't ask you to confirm if you want to actually go or not since most other actions that are pretty important you're warned before.
