Prioritize Defeating Mephisto


Mephisto can support enemy units by helping them recover HP and increasing their movement speed. Use Operators that can pull enemy units away from Mephisto's range so that you can easily dispatch them.

Operators That Can Pull
すっぴんちゃんPoint!The range of the Operator's "Pull" is dependent on the skill level. Consider having at least Skill Level 4 if you're thinking of using Shift Operators.

Fight The Crusher With Casters


Once you have defeated 10 waves, the Crusher will start to advance towards your base. As the DP cost of placing Defenders and Medics is high, it is best to place Casters beforehand to anticipate the Crusher's approach.

Stop Faust's Attacks


Faust can devastate your Casters and Snipers during the early to mid stages of this operation. Deploy long-range attackers during the early phases to damage Faust, and defend against him with Defenders & Medics during the mid-phase.

Get Defenders With Healing

In the latter half of this mission, Faust will use his Ballista to deal damage from afar. The usual Medics plus Defender combo may not be enough, so best bring Defenders that can heal to make up for the difference.

The map info is wrong. Correct map for 5-5/S5-3.
