Special event held around easter. Rare Ship Blueprint available at completion.
WEIRD MANTIS SHIPS SPOTTED
- drops eggs (first mission)
- repair target
- damage amplifier
- Drops 1/2 rare bp
Egg produces a damage amplification field which is the red circle around it. Dragging mantis out will increases your ability to complete.
Dispatch the breeder asap as it heals the others. The young rabbits are next as the stun will work against your efforts. The elder is optional as he can be pulled and glitched outside of red zone. Attacking the egg will spawn more youngs and can be dealt with by the group easily this way. Keeping distance (max blaster range) will keep from drawing glitched mantis back, and allow you to pull youngs that spawn.
- You will pod a lot. Loosing cryo
Storm ships with hit and run tactics are vital to success. Use afterburners to speed through and shoot the egg. Fly straight through red zone. Rabbits will follow you. DO NOT SHOOT RABBITS! This will make them fly back to egg to heal. Get out of red zone and let them pod you. Rescue don't materialize. So long as they are out of red zone they should glitch and stay there. You want them away from red zone as much as possible. Keeping distance (max blaster range) will keep from drawing glitched mantis back, and allow you to pull youngs that spawn. If breeder is too close attacking youngs will unglitch breeder. If you don't want to have to fight youngs, then you should use afterburners, fly through red zone shooting egg (2 shots off), and let them POD you out the other side. Changing where you enter and leave red zone will be important as you don't want to pull gltched rebbits back into red.
