Time for some nocturnal reconnaissance

"Squad E will patrol the forest from the southern entrance to the northern clearing. A cliff divides the area east and west, so you'll have to split up into two teams. Obviously, the woods are unfit for a tank. Claude will therefore be joining Raz as infantry on the western side. Both of you need to reach the target point... Alive, I might add. You won't have a camp available on-site, so pick your cliffside fireteam wisely. Riley and Kai are on duty back at base, so they won't be able to participate."

Location: Forest

Description: Conduct recon around the forested area. Visibility is reduced at night, so watch out for hidden enemies. Claude and Raz must both reach the destination without falling into critical condition.

"That concludes the briefing. Now get into position!"

Notes/Trivia

  • Technically, the player receives 6 Command Points per turn. However, since Claude and Raz (both Leaders) deploy automatically, and cannot be allowed to fall, Players will never have fewer than 8 CP in a turn.
