The Fortress of Dawn Mission Tips & Tricks
4. Destroy the 5 Anchors - Tips
Defeat the Dominion Forces First
Dominion mooks will try to stop you as you're destroying the Anchors. Focus on them first so you can deal with the Anchors without a random mook attacking you while you do so.
5. Bring Down the Dominion Gate - Tips
Regen Full Shields Before Going in Gate Area
The Gate area has a huge electric field that will continuously damage you. With full shields, you'll be able to stay in the area and destroy the Gate mechanisms without having to take a direct hit to your health.
10. Defeat the Ancient Ash Titan - Tips
Jump Up to Escape Titan's Fire Ring Attack
One of the Ancient Ash Titan's attacks is a large ring of fire that expands the farther it is from its body. Don't stand behind an obstacle to escape it as it will pass through. Instead, jump up and hover in the air until it disappears.
Time Your Dodge For Homing Fireball Attack
Keep your eyes peeled for a devastating homing Fireball attack that will damage and burn you at contact! Go behind an obstacle quickly once you see the Titan winding up for the attack.
13. Fill Out the Meter for the 4 Signal Rings - Tips
Dominion Forces will Mob You as You Fill the Ring
Groups of Dominion Forces will come at a time to disrupt and attack you as you fill the rings. Shoot them from a distance to prevent them from reaching your location.
Skirt Around Edge of the Ring to Dodge Gunfire
Staying at the edge of the ring will still fill in the meter. Skirt around that area to dodge gunfire or to position yourself at a better angle to attack the incoming enemies.
