Takedown at Maliwan's Blacksite Special Mission Rules

Respawns are Limited to Specific Areas

Respawns are Limited to Specific Areas

Respawn is limited in the Takedown at Maliwan's Blacksite. Dying in the first half will only let you respawn if your team beats the Valkyrie Squad. Dying in the second half will not allow you to respawn until they beat Wotan the Invincible.

Can Still Get Reward from Wotan

If you happen to have died in the middle of the fight or before Wotan, you don't need worry because you can still get the rewards if your teammates manage to beat them. You'll respawn in the Arena where you can get the loot!

1. Launch Mission - Tips

Mission Can be Launched in Matchmake

You can skip through Steps 1 - 3 by simply starting the game on Matchmake. This is only available for players who are not playing in a full team.

Recommended to be Lvl 50 & Fully Geared

This mission is challenging for a reason. You will need to be level 50 & fully geared to be able to survive against the hordes of enemies. Not to mention Wotan the Invincible who awaits you at the end of the mission.

3. ~ 7. Fight Through the Facility - Tips

A Shock Weapon is a Must

A Shock Weapon is a Must

Almost if not all enemies you face in Maliwan's Blacksite are shielded so remember to bring a shock weapon. This will help you bring down enemy shields faster.

Go Behind Cover if You're in FFYL

Go Behind Cover if You

Help your teammates to get you back up by crawling behind cover if you find yourself in Fight For Your Life. This will ensure that your teammate won't get damaged while helping you up.

Focus on Badasses First

Focus on Badasses First

Throughout the Facility, you'll face a ton of badasses and normal mooks. Take care of bosses first as they're a bigger threat compared to the regular mooks.

Replenish Ammo at Vending Machines

Replenish Ammo at Vending Machines

Remember to always refill your ammo from any of the Vending Machines you find in the facility. They're pretty spread out and are near checkpoints most of the time.

5. Defeat the Valkyrie Squad - Tips

Be Careful of Ledges in Valkyrie Fight

Be Careful of Ledges in Valkyrie Fight

You may not notice it immediately, but the platform you are in during the Valkyrie fight has ledges. Fall down and you'll be out of the fight so check where you're stepping.

Focus on One Valkyrie at a Time

Focus on One Valkyrie at a Time

Spreading your fire between the Valkyries will prolong the fight. Just focus on one of them at a time or whichever is unshielded to bring the fight to a close.

Stay in Long Distance against Reaper Valkyrie

Stay in Long Distance against Reaper Valkyrie

The Reaper Valkyrie is a melee focused enemy. Better to stay away and shoot it from a distance so it can't damage you.

7. Defeat Wotan the Invincible - Tips

Make Sure to Have Gear, Ammo before Dropping Down

Make Sure to Have Gear, Ammo before Dropping Down

Double check if you have everything in your loadout and if you have enough ammo before jumping down to the Arena. Once you're there, it's kind of hard to change loadouts.
