A battle with medium-low difficulty, there are two patterns for this battle, the easy one and the medium difficult one. In the easy pattern the battle starts with Omega Sentinel. switch to tactician and use Omega's L1 "Targeting Laser", Bastion's passive will make him change to Infiltrator and counter attacks (pay no mind to the counter). On your second action switch back to Scrapper and use L1 "Plasma Knife", which crits twice since bastion is now Infiltrator and targeted. Stack some soul charges with Magik's L1 "Soul Sword", which crits twice. By this point bastion should start a dialogue, add some shield and do one attack, disregard his low damage. Now finish him off by spamming Omega's L1, that ignores his shield. If he survived Omega's turn use Magik's L6 to bypass his shield and you're done.

The alternate pattern is when Magik goes first, the strategy is to minimize the benefit Bastion receives from class changes. Have Omega Sentinel buff your team with her L6 moves, while having Magik use her L9 to give Bastion stat debuffs via
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 012
 Pressure Points. Once Karima has given the team Strengthened, Agile and Fortified, have her switch to using direct attacks in her Scrapper form. Once Magik has used her L9 twice, she should use her L6, after this Bastion should be near death.

Mission 2 - Mysteries AboundEdit

Heroic Battle
Hammerhead Icon Hammerhead Scrappericon
Passive:
Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 001


"Hammerhead is back on the scene, trying to angle for a piece of the Maggia for himself. Unfortunately, his luck is about to change."

Heroes Required: Black Cat
Appears in: Chapter 7 - Crest of the Wave: Mission 2 - Mysteries Abound
Potential Gear Reward: Random Deploy Gear, Empowered Iso-8 034Startling Empowered Isotope-8
Total Hero Cost: 23 Command point icon

This battle is not really difficult, but can be challenging without Black Cat's alternate outfit, especially the Scrapper version.

In this battle, Black Cat has a new passive buff called
Effect BG 3 GreenEffect Icon 092
 Light-fingered, which will give her the chance to steal items from her enemy. This means that after attacking Hammerhead, he will get the
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 120
 Stolen Ammo debuff, therefore being unable to use his gun, so he'll call a Maggia Hitman that'll give him some more, along with a Maggia Assassin. Notice that the two goons have a passive debuff called
Effect BG 2 RedEffect Icon 035
 Superstitious, which means that attacking with Unlucky Strike will make them fail their next attack. The strategy is rather simple: pump Black Cat's defense and health, then focus on Hammerhead with the usual attack sequence (some stacks of
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 002
 Bleeding, Stroke of Luck and Nerve Chop). The goons should present little challenge: attack them especially with Unlucky Strike. If the Maggia Hitman is killed, Hammerhead will be unable to regain ammunition and therefore will be incapable of attacking, so he should be targeted first. If you've got Black Cat's Scrapper alt and/or her Feline A-ISO8, you should gain an edge in this battle. The alt is more advantageous class-wise and Black Cat's L1 deals extra stacks of
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 002
 Bleeding, increasing damage output. Her A-ISO8 apply
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 007
 Hexed on the goons via her L2, rendering them less harmful.

Mission 3 - SavageEdit

"Hank Pym and Beast discover rare Iso-Saurs and move in for further analysis. Before they can poke and prod, they'll need to contend with reinforced claws and lasers."

Heroes Required: Hank Pym, Beast

Potential Gear Reward: Random Deploy Gear, Empowered Iso-8 030Diminutive Empowered Isotope-8, Empowered Iso-8 036Pacifying Empowered Isotope-8
Total Hero Cost: 290 Command point icon

This battle is really easy with both Beast and Pym at level 9. The trick is to last at least three rounds until the
Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 084
 Smartest Man in the Room passive allows for
Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 043
 Guaranteed Crit and
Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 042
 Ignore Defense, while damaging the three enemies 'til 50% health and below. Then just hit the Iso-saurs with Pym's Level 9 to kill them all at the same time. If you kill two Iso-Saurs the one left standing will summon reinforcements on its turn so make sure to kill it before it takes its turn or kill the last two or all three at once with Hank Pym's lvl 6 or lvl 9. The battle is probably somewhat easier if you use Beast's Pestilence alt. Pestilence greatly reduces the damage you will take from enemy DoTs and his mere presence will prevent the Elder from applying
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 022
 Potential Unleashed to the enemies.

Mission 4 - Many HeadsEdit

Heroic Battle
Kurse Icon Kurse Bruisericon
Passive:
Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 001
Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 131
Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 048
Malekith Icon Malekith Infiltratoricon
Passive:
Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 031


"Malekith and Kurse take Heimdall and Valkyrie for a wild ride."

Heroes Required: Valkyrie, Heimdall
Appears in: Chapter 7 - Crest of the Wave: Mission 4 - Many Heads
Potential Gear Reward: Random Deploy Gear, Empowered Iso-8 031Halting Empowered Isotope-8, Empowered Iso-8 040Unwavering Empowered Isotope-8
Total Hero Cost: 400 Command point icon

It is imperative that you do not use Heimdall's L9 on the first turn, unless Malekith has already had his turn. Malekith opens with Svaltalfheim Portal, changing the battle bg, buffing Kurse and Malekith himself similarly to how Heimdall's L9 does, but worse, debuffing Valkyrie and Heimdall with the respective opposite version. Heimdall's L9 is needed to turn the tide of battle back to your favor. It will also remove the stat buffs from Kurse and Malekith by applying
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 120
 Neutralized to them. Heimdall's L1 is likely to be your main damage-dealing move, but use his L6 beforehand, as well as Valkyrie's L9, to apply helpful debuffs on the enemies. Valkyrie's L2 should be used to make sure your heroes recover health when Kurse is killed.
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 141
 Deathwatch from Valkyrie's L6 is a little questionable, given that Kurse has an attack with
Effect BG 2 RedEffect Icon 129
 Fatal Blow that will keep Deathwatch from triggering, but it's fair game if Malekith happens to be the one to land that killing blow to a hero and activates it. Bring healing E-ISOs and equip A-ISOs as you see fit.

Mission 5 - But One ImmortalEdit

Heroic Battle
Artillery Icon Loa Possessed Generalisticon
Passive:
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 048
Effect BG 2 RedEffect Icon 001
Hunter Icon Loa Possessed Generalisticon
Passive:
Effect BG 2 RedEffect Icon 001


"These White Gorillas are showing signs of possession by evil spirits. Who you gonna call? Doctor Voodoo."

Heroes Required: Doctor Voodoo

Potential Gear Reward: Random Deploy Gear, Empowered Iso-8 039Spiritual Empowered Isotope-8
Total Hero Cost: 90 Command point icon

This battle is rather easy. Give Dr.Voodoo Recovering Empowered Iso-8 (and if you can, Resonant Empowered Iso-8 as well). Then use Vodoun Crows, followed by Doom Curse on one of the enemy with high health, then keep swapping between Crows and Recharge. You just have to wait for the DoTs to take the opponents out. If you have Voodoo's A-Iso that makes Vodoun Crows a quick action, you can use it and Terron Attack spell in the same turn for even more damage. Terron is doubly useful as it gets rid of the stat buffs that the enemies like to use on themselves.

The difficulty lies in that you cannot see the enemies' "real" health, because outright damaging (as in not DoT damage) them beyond a certain point is seen as "killing the innocent" and causes you to lose the battle. You can hover over the enemies and see their initial stats instead of the health bar at the bottom right of the screen to make a mental note of what your damage cap should be. DoT does not damage this "real health" and is the main means for defeating the "Loa" without killing the human enemies. Doom does not trigger even if the enemies attack, so you have to wait until it expires normally, making for a long battle if you want to play it safe. It's advised to take out the Hunter first given his DoT debuffs that drain your health and stamina and might even
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 010
 Stun you. The healing E-ISOs are a must.


Alternate Strategy: Equip Dr. Voodoo with Persisting E-ISO and insert Cooperative A-ISO at Voodoo Incantation (do not insert his personal A-ISO as it'll add a cooldown to the entire action) in order to make Vodoun Crows a QA. In one go, you use Doom Curse into an enemy, followed by Vodoun Crows (applying an additional DoT) and Spirit Possession to turn Dr. Voodoo
Effect BG 3 GreenEffect Icon 025
 Phased. Next turns, you could use Daniel Drumm to restore Stamina and then keep on using Doom Curse, Vodoun Crows (it can only be a QA once per battle), Spirit Possession and Daniel Drumm until both Loa Possessed White Gorillas are knocked out. No offensive actions are needed.

Heroes Required: Black Knight

The main problem in this battle is that sometimes the Hellfire grunts will perform the frag grenade attack dealing both
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 003
 Burning and
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 002
 Bleeding to Black Knight, therefore he will lose a considerable amount of health each round. This added with the fact that Sebastian Shaw's passives
Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 053
 Imperial Guard and
Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 022
 Kinetic Absorption means he takes significantly reduced damage and deals more respectively makes this battle difficult. To make this battle easier, equip the Recovering EISO on Black Knight, which grants the
Effect BG 3 GreenEffect Icon 089
 Soothing Rest passive, which gives him extra health should he recharge. Stay in Chivalrous Duty all the time and pray the counter kicks in, always open the battle with Black Knight's level 9 ability Valinor, as it is a stealthy attack and can apply
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 002
 Bleeding,
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 022
 Intimidated and
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 130
 Cornered. Note: if you have the Trampling A-ISO equipped to Black Knight, he should deal extra damage after Summoning Valinor due to
Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 002
 Hemorrhaging Attack Alternate Strategy: An alternative method is to try and end the battle quickly before Sebastian Shaw gets too many stacks of
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 022
 Energy Reserves. Make sure Black Knight is at least level 9 and equip the Recovering EISO. Start the battle with Black Knight's L9 and when he gets Tactical Maneuvers, use his L1 to go into
Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 153
 Blood Curse mode. He has a higher chance of following up on bleeding enemies than he does countering and absorbing their attacks. With this, you should be able to take out both Blasters quickly to stop them from applying
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 003
 Burning and
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 002
 Bleeding. Once the Blasters are out of the way, alternate between using Cursed Blade, Valinor and recharging. With the follow-ups and bleed damage, you should be able to take out Shaw before he gets too powerful. If Shaw manages to get 10 or more stacks of
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 022
 Energy Reserves, switch to
Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 046
 Chivalrous Duty mode and use Black Knight's L6 Hermorrhage Shaw since this will be the best way to damage him at that point. A Quick E-ISO will help out with this.
