Clear Path Of Enemies
Use Electricity On Enemies With Blue Shields
Enemies with blue shields will be weak against electricity weapons. Make sure to have one in your arsenal when you're doing this mission.
Defeat NOGs First When They Appear
With the different areas you go through, you'll encounter NOGs. Focus fire and defeat them first as they provide protection & shields to their allies.
Use Corrosive On Yellow Shielded Enemies
If you encounter any enemies with yellow shields, make sure to pull out a weapon that deals corrosive damage. They are weak to this element and can easily be dealt with.
9. Traunt Battle Is Similar In Athenas
The Traunt you face in this planet is similar to the Traunt you've defeated in Athenas. He'll do mostly electric & corrosive attacks that you need to watch out for.
14. Preston Is Weak To Electricity
Lt. Preston has a blue shield bar, making him weak to electricity-based guns. Use a lightning weapon on him so you can take his shield down fast.
Traunt - Boss Battle Tips
Use Electricity Weapon To Run Shield Down
General Traunt has a long blue shield bar that you can bring down by using an electricity-based weapon. Have your most powerful lightning weapons to take his shield down fast.
Keep Distance From Ground Floor
Traunt will do a lot of attacks in the lower floor when you're fighting him - most of them are area-of-denial. it's best to stick to the upper floor to avoid getting hit by his moves.
Run Clockwise To Dodge Elemental Ball
Traunt will send off a large elemental ball that'll run counterclockwise in the upper floor. To see when to dodge, run clockwise towards it.:h4; Will Summon Either Electric Or Corrosive Ball
Traunt summons energy balls of 2 elements - electric or corrosive. You can identify the element of the attack by the color of the ball.
Aim For Traunt's Tank
Traunt's tank that is attached to his back is a weak spot. Focus fire on this area when you're down to his red HP bar to deal heavy damage to him.
