i've had the game since around Christmas, mainly running through story mode, and did a few online sorties before i took a break. currently on mission 6-1, and having trouble getting through it. so figured i should reach out and see about getting some help in a better build that may suit my needs

I'm online right now, I sent you a friend request. I can help answer any questions you have.

One vision. One purpose. Peace through Power.
Mission 6-1 is versus Spec Ops squadron "Leaves" or something like that, right? Big open snowy map with a lot of snipers, turrets, bulky golems with CE and TE weapons, and an RJ AC that drops in after you're about halfway done?
I think I S-ranked it with a Tetrapod and I used a Sniper Cannon, Battle Rifle, Pulse Machinegun, and a KE Shield (to keep from losing any AP for the sub quest requirements). I remember having Plasma Missiles in my shoulders.
Use a somewhat longer-ranged FCS and snipe the enemies you encounter. Against the Sniper enemies, PMG them (or snipe them yourself if you have Sniper Cannon ammo). PMG the AC that drops in, and dump all the Plasma Missiles on it too. If you still have the KE Shield, it will keep you from dying to the enemy AC as I think it only uses shotguns and an auto-attack gun, but I may be wrong. It is not a very hard mission but if you take your time you should be fine. You can always play it again more recklessly to get the time sub quest later on.
you fucking tryhard

well, thanks to Dominant, we managed to get through it. he went after the AC while i cleaned up the snipers/golems. i tried going with a quad cannon build, but with the way the buildings are laid out, there's no safe sniper position i can use w/o every other one drawing a bead on me. i haven't tried shields yet, since any time i fought a shielded golem, i just used HEAT missiles to blow them away. though given the builds i'm trying to emulate, i need to switch to SRMs, since HEATs are more of a shoot and pray model
Kain lives in Death. as guessed by my avatar, i did make a Nod emblem, and started one for GDI as well, because why not. if i had recording software, or if Link was up, i'd share it

lol that mission is a bitch to S. Sniper quad is a good bet, but you have to approach from the edge of the map and very carefully work your way around a corner to the other side. Anyways u can add me to the list if u want help, I'm usually available on the weekends.
Close the door, put out the light.

Am I the only one who camped on top of a building with added ammo and a shield to snipe out everything? When the HRJ shows up wall him with a KE shield and floor him with a PMG. You really shouldn't get touched if you do it right.
A sniper cannon quad can beat several missions without moving, easy S ranks.

I could be wrong, but I recall using two PMGs and rifles. PMGs for the HRJ, rifles for everything else.
If the PMGs don't work, then PGs definitely should.
