General hints and tips[edit | edit source]

|DD/DDE is by far the harder opening line.|
|Keeping up with the Tough Fab itself is not terribly difficult. It is when the Gunbot Forges come online that the challenge gets difficult.|
|Because of the nature of this puzzle, you will most likely reach a stable position several turns before you actually kill the Tough Fab.|

Solution[edit | edit source]
The following solution uses the DD/DB opening line. "Optimal" block (hit 'Q') should be used every turn. When selecting targets, you should prioritize destroying as many attackers as possible while minimizing "wasted" damage unless otherwise instructed. 1=Flame Animus, 2=Shadowfang
