Strategy:
This battle looks scary, but it's only tricky. This battle consists of three waves. In the first one you need to defeat Sin to proceed to the next wave. The second wave is the hardest one: Cable and Bishop must survive for four rounds to proceed to the final wave. While you can eliminate Bastion and the sentinel, you cannot defeat the Red Skull no matter how much damage you do. In the final wave just recharging is enough to finish the job and achieve the victory. The key for an easy victory is having both heroes at level 13, in order to have 2 EISO slots. Equip two Recovering EISO to Cable and Bishop's own Dynamo EISO (if you have it) along with the Sympathetic EISO.

In the first wave, defeat Sin by any means. In the second wave, recharge with Cable: you'll recover 20% health with each recharge, due to the double

Effect BG 3 GreenEffect Icon 165
 Potential Energy with Bishop thanks to his
Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 012
 Focused Efforts passive and his
Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 005
 Quick Action moves, then use his L9 to apply a healing buff which will give you extra health (due to the Sympathetic EISO). While attacking will not win the wave, eliminating the Sentinel can give you some room for breath a little while surviving Red Skull's and Bastion's attack, and because its
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 017
 Countermeasure Protocol can allow all enemies to counter your attacks. Cable can give the enemies dizzy and weakened with Techno-Organic Rampage, this will decrease the damage done by enemies. Increasing your heroes' health, Defense and Evasion is also recommended. If you manage to survive 4 rounds, you are done.

Another good idea would be to equip both Cable and Bishop with a Recovering Empowered Iso-8 and a Sheltered Empowered Iso-8. Defeat Sin with any way you like and then just recharge. The two E-Isos will shield and heal the two heroes, so unless you are aflicted with a lot of damage-over-time effects, you will be able to outlast that wave.

Strategy:
With Vision's refactor, the strategy for this fight is a bit different than when it was first introduced. The Power Armors are immune to Vision's energy attacks most of the time, but you can create a window of opportunity with melee attacks from either his Melee Interface's Vision-Physical Disruption Physical Disruption or Vision-Intangible Fist Intangible Fist, the former of which gives Vision Phased to reduce his damage received from the Power Armors. Phased also gives a few turns to heal with the Recovering Empowered Iso-8 or attack them with his Blaster Interface's Vision-Microwave Pulse Microwave Pulse.

The general idea here is to pick them off one at a time. To do that, you should switch to Melee interface first and use Vision-Physical Disruption Physical Disruption to go phased, which will also take down the energy shield on whichever Power Armor you targeted, along with applying Incapacitation (and Straining on the AoU alt). From there, you switch back to Ranged Interface, and use Vision-Microwave Pulse Microwave Pulse, which will stun all enemies, keeping them from protecting each other and guaranteeing the next crit. Finally, you use Vision-Solar Jewel Solar Jewel on whichever armor you attacked with melee earlier. It should do heavy damage, possibly KO'ing the target altogether. Wait for Tangible to wear off (Soothing Rest is recommended here, or Suppression), then rinse and repeat.

The whole process is much quicker if you already have Vision's Flaring Augmented Iso-8 for his L9, as it'll add Phased Advantage and Exploit Radiation, massively increasing his damage output. The Age Of Ultron Vision alt has Deadly Crits and Exploit Strain as well, which also speeds things up, along with adding some survivability through Modulating Density.

Alternatively, if you have Vision's Sighted Augmented Iso-8 for Upgraded Interface, switching to Melee mode will apply Phased to Vision, while switching to Ranged Interface will grant 5 Energy Charges. Because neither Vision-Intangible Fist Intangible Fist or Vision-Microwave Pulse Microwave Pulse remove Phased, you can continually switch back and forth between these two attacks while staying permanently phased. While this strategy is much slower than the ones listed above, the Power Armors have no way of attacking a Phased Target. Just be conscious of your stamina while doing this.

Strategy:
This battle could be extremely easy and fast, if you have Nico at level 9, or really long and painful. Regardless there is a new "buff",
Effect BG 3 GreenEffect Icon 054
 Survival Required where if one of your teammates die, you lose the fight instantly which is where most of the issues arise (although this does not seem to effectively work at now). In the first case, you'll just need to use Nico's Blood Sacrifice and give Molly an
Effect BG 3 GreenEffect Icon 005
 Extra Turn with Kick Ass!: with her, use Raspberry and Temper Tantrum, and you'll have then an average of 4-5 free attacks. Buff Molly's Stamina with ISO, alternate Drop Kick and Wind-Up Punch and you'l sure end the fight on the first round... if Arcade's
Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 164
 Game Master passive does not trigger. If Arcade dodges Molly's attacks and you don't kill him on the first round, just spam Nico's Witch Arm, while setting up Molly's Temper Tantrum another time. Arcade's debuffs could be dangerous, especially
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 046
 Fumbling, but thanks to Nico's resurrection you should have no problems defeating him. Alternatively this battle could become very long and hard due to the random nature of Arcade's loaded dice which can give a variety of effects. One effect can give him regeneration, making him even harder to kill or one variant can remove most of your HP and then he can kill you in one hit with his next attack. This is a fight that's ease is dependent on RNG and can go several different ways and getting the same result using the same method is very tricky.

Mission 4 - Mindless MischiefEdit

Heroic Battle
Dragoness Icon Dragoness Blastericon

Strategy:

This battle is really easy, even if Dragoness'
Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 021
 Mechanical Wings passive could be really annoying if it triggers too much. Use Shatterstar's Gladiatorial carnage if you start first, because Dragoness will use Charging Energy during her first turn, gaining a shield effect and charging a powerful attack: you'll have to remove it as soon as you can with Mojo Skewer's
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 119
 Shield Breaker effect. Since Mojo Skewer has
Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 011
 True Strike, there is no problem to trigger Dragoness'
Effect BG 3 BlueEffect Icon 021
 Mechanical Wings. After that, just spam Vibro Shockwave and use Gladiatorial Carnage every time you can, re-using Mojo Skewer if she manages to get her shield effect again.

Potential Gear Reward: Random Deploy Gear, Empowered Iso-8 028 Bounding Iso-8
Total Hero Cost: 90 Command point icon

Strategy:

This battle is pretty hard, especially because of the stacks of
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 002
 Bleeding your enemies can put on you. Buff Jack's health, Attack and Evasion, and equip his own Victorious AISO if you have it: if so, use V for Victory on the Infiltrator vampire, then use Trench Warfare on him (if you don't have UJ's AISO, just use Trench Warfare), which will be followed by Service Revolver. You'll then have both the
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 121
 Capital Defence and
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 016
 Stiff Upper Lip buffs, preemptively countering your enemies' attacks: if you find them gaining too many stacks of
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 002
 Taste of Blood, switch to Over the Top to remove them. The most important part is keeping your enemies under
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 018
 Lock-On, to increase Royal Arms's damage (Union Jack's most damaging attack). After the first two rounds, Agent Coulson will give Union Jack some hallowed bullets, granting him the
Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 117
 Hallowed Rounds passive (150% damage against the two vampires, plus removing their
Effect BG 2 BlueEffect Icon 063
 Vampiric Aura passive by attacking), plus giving him the
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 089
 Oshtur's Boon buff. Follow the same setup as above, killing the Infiltrator vampire first and then switching to the Blaster: it is now recommended to use V for Victory on him to attack twice in a single round.

"Kang just showed up, and he's talking with... Kang. They're arguing over how to prevent a past that belongs to the future. The problem is that past is our future."
— Description

Allies: Kang
Appears in: Chapter 8 - Trial By Fire: Premium Mission: Savage Science
Potential Gear Reward: Random Deploy Gear, Empowered Iso-8 005 Cybernetic Iso-8
Total Hero Cost: 0 Command point icon

Strategy:
This battle is pretty easy but extremely time consuming, especially if you do not have Kang unlocked. If you have him pump up his Attack plus Accuracy and a bit health; to win faster, give his first move the Ionizing Augmented Iso-8 or the Bursting Augmented Iso-8. Lastly, Kang must be at level 9 to even have a chance of hurting the other Kang.

The enemy Kang will often use his
Effect BG 1 GreenEffect Icon 071
 Chrono Shield and attack you with all of his moves. Most of them are Temporal, so you'll just need to activate your own Chrono Shield to avoid them: to actually hit him, you'll have to hit him with your own Non-Temporal moves: Quantum Purge and, above all, Maha-Kalpa; this last attack is practically your only way to win, since it has
Effect BG 1 BlueEffect Icon 071
 Exploits Shields, but it has a very long cooldown. It will be difficult, if not impossible, to remove the enemy's Chrono Shield with Quantum Purge: this attack's damage is simply not enough damage to break the Shield, unless you're using the
Effect BG 1 RedEffect Icon 119
 Shield Breaker AISO. Attack then with Maha-Kalpa every time it is off cooldown, while using your own Chrono Shield and Quantum Purge every other time. The enemy's AI doesn't activate Chrono Shield every possibile time, so if you see him without it, take the chance and attack him with everything you have.

Overall the battle is not hard, and the other Kang can only hurt you with the same moves as well... but, as said above, this battle can take a very long time due to the unnecessarily long cooldowns and low damage outpouts. This can be further compounded if you do not have him unlocked, and thus being unable to boosting his stats.

TriviaEdit

  • Season 2 - Chapter 8 is the only Story Chapter where one of the Heroic Battles doesn't require the player to have the only required hero recruited.
