Need Help With Biter Base Clearing

Post by Cinder85 » Sun Mar 03, 2019 2:21 am

Currently im about 15 ish hours into the campaign and ive tried laser turret creeping but they get destroyed to quickly and ive tried a tank with flamethrower and piercing ammo but still the tank has to keep moving or else itll get stuck and stop and die quickly along with me so im asking does anyone have a easy build for Power Armor that i can just run around and clear bases without dying. i only have solar panels sadly.

Rockets are awesome to far shoot worms.
Build some turrets around you for protection against mobile units.

First, try the cannon shells for the tank, circling round the nests and blowing them from (more) afar than machine gun ! ;)
(Explosive shells tend to be even better, but don't fire them too close ! :P )

My approach requires blue and grey science: Make a Power Armour, some Mk2 Shields and Mk2 batteries, and lots of personal solar panels, and basically run in to a cluster of nests/worms, flamethrower everything, and run out. Very easy with proper suit and shields on. And nests keep taking fire damage after you run out. Simply repeat 1 or 2 more times, and all the worms and nests in the cluster will be dead.
