# 1 Infected Ground Boss

Can someone let me know what is the current tactic for this on normal. what's the one that's most likely to get success as it often end up in a total mess and then my team either quitting or winning by luck.

Not knowing what you do or don't know forgive me if I say something you might already know.
I ran infected just before the push.
this is how I did it.
Make sure every one understands that the "ghost buster" gun from the devidain missions is two damage types(you can almost get 7 shots before remoding). Plus make sure every one has sniper weapons of different energy types , no one should have the same energy type..
While she is making her speach : the medic / super tank healer will move to the center platform and every one else moves out to the corners, but away from the green plasma falling from the ceiling.
You have your medic be the one she targets. That person can take the hits. Every one else hits her with what they have. Using tuns of : hipos, shield charges, and power cells. If you have tribble of Borg make good use of it as well.
Note she uses the chain lightning gun like in cure but not as far reaching.

spread away from each other, including generators and other "pets". dont shoot her while you have the blue circle on you. be careful of other borg. have at her. she is most of the time really easy if you follow these instructions. unless you have people drop.

Pretty much this. I've done Infected Ground probably a half-dozen times since the new season went live, and only had 1 run require repeated attempts because everyone refused to spread out and kept shooting the boss while marked.

What works in particular for me as an Engineer is strategic use of the Bunker kit and Cover Shield. I find a good quiet corner where Borg spawns were recently killed so I don't have to worry about being flanked, drop my medical and shield generators then put a Cover Shield up in front of them. I stay behind the shield and shoot the boss with a sniper rifle around the sides. If I start taking focused fire from the boss and/or get marked, I drop back behind the shield and let my generators do their job. If you've got a good team of friends who understand not to fire when marked, it helps to even have two people behind a Cover Shield so that if one goes down, the other can provide resuscitation while remaining under cover, and both benefit from the generators.

actually, if you have decent gear you can shoot at her a lil bit while you are marked...the deal breaker seems to be the spreading out...and the other borg in the room. dont shoot at her a lot though, its just not a big deal if you let off a couple shots. i use the time while marked to hit her with my science dots and debuffs, and remodulate

We just did:

1: As soon as shes released remodulate

2: use a long range sniper and also a shotgun(explain later)

3: Spread out corner platforms and side platforms are good for this

4: snipe rebecca and if any borg spawn in knock em in the plasma with your shotgun.

5: Make sure everyone is aware fo teh blue circle chain lightning effect befrehand.

Rebecca doesnt hit too hard, i think shes well balanced..its the spawning in borg that can ruin your day.
As soon as they appear get an angle on them while switcing to your shotgun..bang..in the soup and get back to sniping rebecca
