Tips To Win In The Getaway LTM

Build Shields to Block Shots and Buy Time

Building is necessary to reach the Getaway Van. Make sure to have some of all 3 materials as you may need to switch to more secure materials in case your Squad comes under fire while building.

Use Jewel Llama to Heal Teammates

Pay attention to the Health and Shields on your Squad. Pass the Jewel Llama around in a secure location to help them recover.

Arm Your Squad

Make sure that each member has enough health and shields, weapons, ammo, and resources. Share loot among each other to make your team stronger as a whole

Go for Safes

Fighting tends to be more intense closer to the Getaway Vans where players try to steal the Jewel Llamas. It's better to go for unopened Safes to increase chances of completion.
