Tempting Target Mission Tips & Tricks
4, 7, 11. Eliminating Outlaws - Tips
Avoid The Rocket Trooper's Line Of Sight
Despite having a forceful attack which can knock you down, the Outlaw Rocket Trooper will telegraph its attacks by aiming at you with a laser. Once you are targeted, head for cover to stop the Rocket Trooper from knocking you down.
5. Searching The Camp For Clues - Tips
Use Your Compass To Lead You To The Clues
Your compass will be a valuable tool when looking for the clues scattered around the area. It will point you to the general direction of the clue, and will fully glow once you are close enough to the clue.
7, 11. Eliminating Hostiles Inside The Ruin - Tips
Use The Bridge To Bottleneck Enemies
Use the bridge found inside the ruin to efficiently kill enemies once you're inside. Draw aggro from the outlaws, and lead them towards you via the bridge to easily gun them down one-by-one.
8. Deliver Echoes To The Echo Lock - Tips
Your Javelin Can Hold 3 At A Time
Keep in mind that your Javelin can hold 3 echoes at a time when delivering echoes to the Echo Lock. Try to gather as many echoes as you can before heading back to the Echo Lock in order to open the door faster.
9. Solving The Puzzle - Tips
Interacting with the seals on either side of the corridor will change their symbols. Change the symbol on the left to yellow, and the symbol on the right by the door to purple to unlock the door.
Hover To Easily Access the Symbols
When changing the symbols to unlock the door, hover to stay in the air. This will buy you more time to change symbols, and review the symbols to see if your input was correct.
Watch Out For Mines In The Area
The corridor will be littered with mines when you enter. Getting too close to them will cause them to explode, dealing massive damage to you. You can trigger them safely by shooting at them from a distance, or fly over them to avoid explosions.
11. Eliminating Outlaws - Tips
Focus Fire On Fire-Faced Kerns
Fire-Faced Kerns is equipped with a Storm Javelin that hurls fire elemental attacks at you. Eliminating his shield will cause him to fall to the ground, and leave him vulnerable to your attacks.
