WALKTHROUGH
 

Who should do what?
     Which characters should use which types of weapons? Well here's a general overview of how to determine how to best suit your characters. Between battles, go to the Pilot screen under the Set Up and see how many experience points each character has for each type of skill. If a character has more SHORT experience points than FIGHT experience points, that character will do better with a SHORT type weapon (guns). BUT if during the levels a character should get skill that is different from the type of weapon they usually use in battle, go with the skill. In other words, if a SHORT (gun) using character get the 'double' skill during battle, right after battle, get rid of the guns and give that character FIGHT weapons.
 

The Larcus Incident
     The game begins after you have selected a your name and your callsign. You are thrust right into your first battle. You (Royd Clive) are sent on a reconnisonce mission to a U.C.S. warehouse during a tense time between your nation (OCU) and the UCS. While on this mission that Royd finds suspicious the enemy shows up. This seems all wrong as it appears that the UCS troops knew Royd's team would be there. Karen (Royd's fiancÚ) is being chased by Driscoll, a high ranking military officer in the UCS. You must save Karen and defeat the UCS Wanzers. You have assisting you Ryuji Ryuji and an unnamed OCU solider.


Mission 1
While investigating the area several UCS troops show up and go after Karen. Only Royd, Ryuji, and an OCU solider can save her.
 
     Your Units : 4 (1 NPC)
     Enemy Units:
                            2 Missilers               4 Attackers
                            1 Driscoll 
     Notes:
 
1.) No matter what you do you cannot save Karen. Her Wanzer is destroyed.
2.) After you destroy the 4 Wanzers Driscoll blows up the warehouse. The UCS blames Royd and then OCU and the UCS begin the second Huffman dispute. The story picks up a year later when Olson recruits you for the OCU.

The city of Barinden
   
1.) Here in the city of Barinden you meet Olson in the coliseum. Royd has been roaming around Huffman for the last year after his dismissal from the military after the Larcus Incident. He makes his living fighting others in Wanzers battles. Olson talks Royd into joining his merc group 'The Canyon Crows'. He tells Royd that this is his chance to find the man who killed Karen. Royd signs up right away. It doesn't matter if you win or lose the fight you have right after talking to Olson.
2.) After the fight you will be on the city main menu. Go to the Military Office. Here you will talk to Olson and he will ask for your help. Choose YES. Natalie is introduced and is now part of your unit. Ryuji is also in your group.
3.) You can go around Barinden and do what you want. Be sure to upgrade your Wanzer!
4.) When you are finished in the city SAVE your progress and go to EXIT.

     Enemy Units:
                            3 Missilers               5 Attackers
                            1 Commander 
     Notes:
 
1.) Fredrick is introduced here. He is a reporter covering the war. He begins as a NPC (non-player character). This means he will act on his own, which is not good. You must attempt to keep him from getting his Wanzer destroyed. He will run right into the enemy if you don't stop him. But don't worry, even if his Wanzer is destroyed, he is still alive.
2.) Before you actually begin, you will go to the unit select screen. Here you will choose which Wanzers will go with you on this mission (see what to do when you want to go on a mission, in the gameplay section).
3.) As soon as you begin this mission, go and protect Fredrick. Send 3 units up towards where Fredrick is and send 2 units forward towards the plane.

Pewee is introduced in this mission. He is apart of a  convoy that is attacked by UCS Wanzers. You must protect the trucks. They must not be destroyed!
 
     Your Units : 6
     Enemy Units:
                            4 Missilers               5 Attackers
                            1 Commander 
     Notes:
 
1.) The trucks will pull off the road and drive into a dense wooded area. Use this to your advantage. Put your Wanzers in places where enemy Wanzers can't get around you because of the forest. Block those enemy units!

To the city of Menasa
 
1.) In the city of Menasa you are challenged (Olson asks you) to fight Yang, a Wanzer Ace. You should go to the Coliseum and talk to her. When the option appears choose YES. You will automatically leave the Coliseum. Now go back and you (Royd) will fight Yang. You must win to get her to join. If you loose, just go back and fight her again until you win.
2.) Go to the bar and talk to Alder, now go on to the mission. After a couple of missions come back to Menasa and talk to him, he will join you if you can beat him battle.

Greyrock

Mission 5  
 
Driscoll has sent his troops into the city and is surrounding the hospital that Yang told Royd she last saw Karen (very much alive) at. As the team arrives they see another solider already on the offensive, Paul. Together they all take on the enemy.
 
     Your Units : 7 (1 NPC)
     Enemy Units:
                            3 Missilers               5 Attackers
                            3 Commander               1 Driscoll 
     Supply Trucks: 1
     Notes:
 
1.) Driscoll is in this mission! Be careful. Don't advance toward him or he will attack. If he doesn't attack he will leave after all the other Wanzers are destroyed. If he does attack, forget it. He is WAY too powerful. He will wipe you out. Remember to always save in between missions.
2.) Paul is introduced here as a NPC. You should try to protect him. Don't worry if you can't (I never can). He almost always gets too far ahead to catch up to him and gets blown up.      
3.) The supply truck leaves after a little while offering no repairs for the enemy troops. They took something (or someone away)!
4.) When you have destroyed all enemy Wanzers, Driscoll blows up some buildings nearby attempting to recreate the disaster that shamed you in the Larcus Incident. Then the  mission is over and Royd thinks back to the past and the way Driscoll trapped him before.
5.) After this mission, go back to Menasa and to the bar and talk to Alder, now he will join you if you fight him.

 
To the city of Grey Rock
 
1.) Go to the military office and Olson will assign Peewee to your unit. Peewee drives the Supply Truck. When in battle when you run out of missiles, need items, or you get an arm or leg blown off and need it repaired, you will need to go to the supply truck. To reload missiles, etc..., when in battle place your Wanzer along side or in front or behind the supply truck. On your next turn, press the B button and choose RESUPPLY. You will then go into the setup screen and here you can get supplies or change out Wanzer parts. Your missiles are automatically refilled when you enter the setup screen. Your destroyed arms and legs are automatically repaired when you enter the setup screen, however, they will need to have a repair used on them to refill the HP.
3.) Now, go back to the city of Mensa and go to the bar. Go talk to Alder. Choose YES when prompted and he will join your group if you can beat him in a battle in the coliseum.


Mission 6

     Your Units : 9
     Enemy Units:
                            3 Missilers               6 Attackers
                            2 Commander               3 Missile Launchers
     Notes:
 
1.) You have 10 turns in which to do this. Don't worry about the enemy Wanzers at first, go directly after the missile launchers.

Mission 7
     Your Units : 9
     Enemy Units:
                            6 Missilers               6 Red Wanzers
     Notes:
 
1.) Here are some really tough Wanzers. They are huge and pack a punch! They are the "Hell's Wall" squad (see characters section for more info). My suggestion is to stay put and let the enemy come to you. Use Missiles! For most of this mission, I used missiles. Remember to use Flash Grenades too on the tough guys so they will loose turns. Don't engage the Hell's Wall guys hand to hand under any circumstance if possible. Just keep pouring missiles into them. Use Hans and the PIZ8 you picked up a few missions ago. He is your long range star!
2.) Let the missilers waste all their missiles on you. Just keep together and keep repairing HP. Once their missiles are out, go in for the kill.
 
NOTE!!!: When this mission is over and the main map is shown, don't press the A button! Press left or right on the control pad until the line is pointing back to Greyrock.
