Dear Diary Mission Tips & Tricks
3. Ambush Talon's Strider - Tips
Defeat Scar Scouts To Prevent Getting Sniped
Scar Scouts can snipe you even when you're ways away from the battlefield. Take them out immediately to prevent getting shot at from afar.
Elite Outlaw Lancers Are Enemy Ranger Javelins
When you spot an Outlaw Lancer, it's best to take care of them as fast as you can. They are enemy Ranger Javelins and can blast you down with their firepower. Take them down from afar or defeat them with strong combos.
10. Defeat Ancient Ash Titan - Tips
Aim For Roving Weak Spots
The Ancient Ash Titan will have glowing weak spots in its body but they move around. They can appear on its arms, chest, or back. Aim for these spots to inflict higher damage on the Titan.
Dodge When Titan Opens Its Chest
Once the Titan opens its chest, take cover as it'll fire a very powerful beam of light that can melt your shield and health. It's best to use the Strider or nearby obstacles to defend yourself.
Use Strider As Vantage Point
The Titan's attacks, save for its homing explosive ball, won't be able to reach you when you use the Strider as a vantage point. Use this area when you want to regenerate your shield or shoot the Titan from above.
13. Destroy Outlaw Turrets - Tips
Destroy Gas Tanks Behind Turrets To Damage Them
The Elite Outlaw Turrets have a weak spot by way of the gas tanks located behind them. Shoot these down to cause an explosion and lower their health bar.
