Battle Reviews

Fairly quick and easy, but more challenging than some free missions out there in my opinion as there are more capital ships to destroy than you have rockets for, so you do need to dodge effectively to kill off the final few.

Not great, not the worst. Be very careful with your ordinance on this one. Your objective in this battle is essentially just 'destroy the capitol ships' but without any idea of what other support you may have, it's difficult to judge what you need. So, my answer: a lot. It helps to shoot the turbo lasers off the cap ships if you happen to run out of ordinance. Or disable them first if you can't manage that.

I played on Easy. Another mission where you just melt capital ships with Rockets. It's not bad, per se, but you're definitely more than equipped to deal with them all extremely easily. I'm not sure it's even worth a second look.

Destroy a bunch of capital ships! That's my type of mission. Honestly with the number of rockets and waves you have this can be pretty quick. I don't remember if there were even any starfighters to contend with, so that's a bit of a let off. Quick, easy, fast RTF points. Go play this mission guys.

Some joy in blowing all those cap ships up, but otherwise not much into this mission. Play it for completion. Admittedly, blowing up capital ships with rockets neve gets old.

Quick and simple deep strike mission in a GUN. Use your warheads wisely or you will end up shooting a lot of lasers. If you like smoking down capships this is worth a try.

2 things: 1: I HATE it how your wingmen in Krayt go home before the last rebel ship is destroyed. 2: In the briefing it states you're given the choice of flying with GUN Krayt or T/A Viper, but you have no option to do so.
