Since your Pyro Mechanicus will be your main DPS, upgrading it as quickly as possible is a must. Getting it up a few levels will help you through finishing stages much easier.
Have Cryo Character Or Mechanicus
Having a Cryo character or mechanicus is a must! Specifically, characters that can do massive AoE elemental applications such as Ganyu will work great well here.
Create Killzone In Choke Point
The first choke point should be your priority area to control. Create a killzone and slowing corridow there to better deal with crowds and taken them out.
Samachurls are extremely quick and can attack with Hydro and Cryo in quick succession. Apply elements and create combos to deal as much damage as you can.
