Finding Old Friends Mission Tips & Tricks
4., 6. Clear Scar Camp - Tips
Beware of Scar Scout Shielded Snipers
When you reach the Scar Camp, first locate and shoot down any Scar Scout you see. These enemies are snipers and can deal heavy damage to you when you're busy taking care of other enemies.
Avoid the Seeker Mobile Mines
Seekers are mobile land mines. They follow you around and will explode when you stay near their vicinity for too long. Kite them and trigger their explosion then dodge away to avoid getting damaged.
Focus Fire & Abilities On Scar Enforcers
Scar Enforcers will show up in the Scar Camp so it's best to focus your fire on them. Use your abilities, Prime & Detonate to create combos and bring their HP down fast.
Keep Distance When Destroying Machine Gun Turrets
It's best to immediately take down the Machine Gun Turrets in the camp once you spot them. They have an AoE explosion when destroyed so shoot at them from a distance to keep yourself safe. They also have a gas tank on their back, serving as their weak spots visible from the side and the back.
8. Defeat Ursix - Tips
Aim For Ursix Weak Spot On Forehead
The Ursix is sturdy all over but has a weak spot on its forehead. Aim at this spot when shooting to flinch it so you have an opening to deal more damage.
Exploit Ultimate Ability To Deal High Burst Damage
Your Ultimate Ability is your best friend in this fight. Focus all your firepower on the Ursix with your Ultimate Ability to keep your engagement with them to a minimal length.
Use Acid or Fire Element To Lower Its Health
Due to its heavy armored nature, Acid and Fire attacks are effective against the Ursix. Use any attacks that have the acid and fire effect to help lower its HP over time.
11.,13. Repel Dominion Attack - Tips
Destroy Frost Brute Shield Before Priming It
The Frost Brute has a shield and is armored, making it very hard to take down. Attack it to take down its shield before Priming & Detonating it as you won't be able to Prime them when it's shields are up.
Take Down Storm Valkyrie Shield To Defeat It
You'll encounter Dominion Storm Valkyries in this part of the mission. Take down their shields first or knock them off the air for Priming and / or damaging.
