Theater Mechanicus Stage 2 - Guide & Tips
Upgrade Pyro Mechanicus First
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.
Recommended To Have Lv 3 Mechanicus & Above
This stage is difficult if you run it with lower level Mechanicus. It's recommended to have them at least at level 3 first before doing this stage. Your Pyro and Hydro Mechanicus should be level 3.
Line Up A Series Of Cryo & Pyro Mechanicus
Since the stage is one long corridor, place a series of Cryo and Pyro Mechanicus to line it. Enemies trying to pass it will be bombarded by attacks as they keep walking on.
Don't Place All Mechanicus There
After wave 2, another portal will open at the other end. Don't invest all of your mechanicus in the first position to compensate for this. Leaving the other side undefended can easily amount to a defeat.
