"You're far out in the woods now, tin star. Let's see who can walk out of here alive."
"Again, I aint gonna lie to you: It's gonna be tough to get that many totem points AND take down Black Cloud. Only smart unit tactics keep you out of a pine box.
Strategies and Guides
Board: ? (add board)
This mission seems to be very spawn-dependent: if you have a bunch of large and some medium totems spawning at the start, you're good to go; if you start with a bunch of small totems, you probably better restart the map. The bonus spawns can also make a huge difference (spirit walk, hustle, jackrabbit)
- Give the lucky horseshoe to the sharpshooter and focus her mostly on killing off the opposition.
- Give the spirit walk to a steam gunman and have him and the trickster raven focus on the totem pieces in the pits.
- Focus the other steam gunman and buffalo rider on the totem pieces around the pits.
- The enemy's thuderbirds are pretty harmless and will mostly do totem runs: let them carry their pieces close to a totem and then take them out with your sharp (gunman & buffalo can pick them up).
- Keep an eye on the enemy's storm caller (auto-kill), sharp shooter (totem drop) and dog soldier (totem attack), and try to take them out as soon as you can.
- If you lose one of your units early, you probably better restart: you'll need all of your units for a big part of the mission to achieve the objectives in time.
- Don't pick up a totem if it puts you in the middle of a cross-fire (unless you decided to use your iron plate).
- Placing a crown will make a big difference towards achieving enough totem points, make sure you have the trickster and/or spirited gunman around the pits towards the end of the mission.
