MGS 5: The Phantom Pain – Mission 42 S-RANK Extreme (Metallic Archaea)
❱ RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT
☑ D-Walker (Gatling Gun)
❱ MAIN GOALS FOR S-RANK
☑ Avoid wide open areas
☑ Extract one skull at the end
❱ GENERAL MISSION INFO
The Extreme version of Metallic Archaea bumps up the health of your enemies and you will go down quicker. If you choose the D-Walker, equipped with a gatling gun, you can bring an end to this fight pretty easy though.
There are a few things that you have to take care. For one, you should stay away from open areas since the skulls will attack you with jump attacks that you can’t counter on your walker. Stay near the main terminal building and you can prevent most close combat attacks.
The other important thing is that you have to keep moving constantly when you are not shooting at skulls. Also order an ammo supply-drop at the beginning to fill up your gatling-gun.
As long as you keep your walker alive and away from the smoke you should be able to finish this fight fairly easy. Don’t forget to extract one of the skulls after the fight for extra points.
