Ok buddy il try to go through it step by step as my initial guide was maybe a bit vague.

1. Have 1 player assigned to trani 1 and the other 4 spread out around the point the first drones will spawn (so some of you will get flanking shots).

2. Activate 1 and drop all phaser turrets and mortars ect, then as the drones spawn the player assigned to trani 1 should deal with the workers while the other 4 should kill the node then the weaker ftr drones.

3. Kill all the ftr drones but the elite and send the player assigned to 2 to activate 2, move towards 2 with your team while killing the first elite and drop more turrets ect near it.

4. As the drones at 2 spawn have the guy assigned to 2 focus on the workers while the rest of you kill the new node and weaker drones.

OK so far you should have a player assigned to 1 who can watch 1 (but can fire at the drones near 2 as well if he is ok to do so), a player assigned to 2 knocking away and killing workers, and the rest of your team should be near 2 killing the weaker drones.

Number 3 is the tricky part.

1. As soon as 3 is able to be activated one player should RUN TO 4 AND GET OUT OF SIGHT, while your engineer/s should drop turrets on the oposite side of the path to 3.

2. Activate 3 after all is in place (it seems long when i type it but all that should take seconds tbh) and DO NOT fire on the drones that spawn (the drones at 3 spawn INSTANTLY the trani activates unlike 1 and 2 that are delayed).

3. DO NOT fire on the ftr drones at 3, in fact you can hide behind a mushroom (at the first set of 4) and on a rock (at the second set of 4) until the workers spawn and then just focus on knocking them away without aggroing the ftr drones.

4. As soon as number 4 can be activated the guy at 4 should break cover and activate it, then he should focus on knocking workers away as well when they spawn.


Numbers 1 and 2 are reasonably easy as you only need knock away workers really so a tactical guy on these is ok (beam down your escort guys right by the node and there is a chance they will knock away approaching workers as well.. Thinking about it id say the player at 2 could help by being good at hand to hand as he may be left with a elite tac to deal with along with workers but it is not essential.

Either way just remember that most solo players would need a looooooong time to kill a elite and they do hit hard so knocking him on his butt along with the workers OR drawing him away from you with your tactical guys escorts or engineers turrets (depending on what type of player you have most of) is a good idea.

Number 3 can be a pain and turrets obviously help pull aggro from you so 2 engineers or 1 engineer and a tac (tactical initiative will allow him to beam down 4 escorts to draw aggro but do it after the drones spawn or they may beam back up). Just remember to drop the turrets and security squads so they pull aggro away from the transformer not towards it, so you avoid the scatter shots ect from the borg.

I tend to send the medic to 4 and its a pretty easy job as well, just make sure he does not have aggro or a DOT that prevents him activating the trani.

If there are any other specifics you need let me know.:p
