4-3 Artificial Cold Mission Video Guide

Defend Both Upper & Lower Lanes

Upper and Lower lanes

Defend both the upper and lower lanes at the same time. Sarkaz Greatswordsmen will try to assault the upper lane during the start of this operation, so make sure to place Snipers to deter them. The lower lane will be under assault from Light-Armored Soldier Leaders so place Casters there.

Get DP With Vanguards

Generate DP using Vanguards

As the flow of enemy units will be quick in this operation, it is recommended to bring units that can hit multiple enemies at the same time. In order for you to easily gain DP for them, bring Vanguards that have DP-generating skills!

Withdraw Vanguards & Deploy Snipers

Withdraw Vanguards and Deploy Snipers

Once you have enough DP, withdraw your Vanguards and replace them with Snipers. Time it right and withdraw them after the 16th wave, after defeating the Sarkaz Greatswordsmen!

Block Them Before They Reach The Active Originium!

Block This Cell

Stepping on Active Originium will give the unit a boost in Attack Speed and ATK at the cost of constant health drain. Do not let the enemies step on it as doing so can make it easier for them to go through your defenses.
