Freelancer Work Mission Tips & Tricks
4, 7, 10. Locating Objectives In The Area - Tips
Utilize Your Compass To Find Objectives
You can use the compass on the top of your screen as a reference when searching for objectives such as the freelancer gear, and clues. It will point to the direction of the nearest objective, and glow all around when you are close to it.
5. Defeat Remaining Outlaws - Tips
Combat The Outlaw Lancer From Mid To Long Range
The Legendary Outlaw Lancer is a Ranger Javelin. It can attack you with a Shock Mace, and has a ranged attack, the Multi-Target Missile Battery. You will be able to evade these attacks by engaging it from mid to long range.
Shoot Down Elementalists To Avoid Debuffs
Elementalists are Storm Javelins that float around the field. They will occasionally attack you with elemental attacks that provide debuffs on contact. Deplete their shields to stun them, leaving them vulnerable to your attacks.
8. Destroying Scar Caches & Defeating Scar - Tips
You Cannot Fly While Carrying Explosives
You will not be able to fly while carrying objects. Use your evasion or pull up a shield to avoid damage when carrying the explosives.
Stay Inside The Explosive Area To Arm
Once you have placed the explosives near the caches, you will need to arm them. They will automatically arm themselves as long as you stay in the marked area. Leaving the area will halt, and regress the arming process.
Distinguish Scouts Using Their Laser
Scouts will telegraph attacks by aiming at you. Use this moment as an opportunity to focus your fire on them. Taking them out first will stop them from taking out a good chunk of your shield or health!
Shoot Down Scar Hunters From The Sky
Scar Hunters will shoot rapid fire bullets at you once they take to the air. Make sure to eliminate their shields to ground them, making them easier to hit and defeat.
11. Hunting The Beasts - Tips
Focus Fire On The Ursix's Head
The weak point of the Ursix is on its head. Shooting it will make it more aggressive, so it is best to use powerful weapons to burst it down before it can deal damage to you.
Watch Out For Its Ranged Attack
The Ursix can damage you even if you are far from its reach. It will reel back to throw rocks at you that deal massive damage on contact. Once it starts to reel back, get ready to dodge!
Second Ursix Shows Up After Defeating The First
The second Ursix will appear after finishing off the first beast. The same strategy is recommended to defeat it: burst it down with powerful weapons aimed at its head.
