    IS there any counter to the Zombiebot revival ? They just don't stay dead! Cheetor's heal block definitely does not work.

    Yes.. kill it a few more times:

    Fire Burn as the last hit. As you stated, Cheetor’s SP1 is a Repair Block which does not apply.

    Burn only applies to 'burn it' mod. But it's Ok. I like these prolonged arena fights better than those nasty mod combinations.

    Finished master. Luckily the final Bludgeon Boss does not revive

    As someone who has no reliable burn bots, this mission was a war of attrition and I had to revive Megatron twice to beat bludgeon
  • KillMasterCKillMasterC Posts: 2,867
    The general consensus is that you can't really rely on burning. Most of the zombies aren't paired with "burn it" mod, and those who are can still revive under the burn debuff.
  • So do we get a Fog of War version of this in 2020?

    Bludgeon doesn't revive. He has life transfer, though. Mv1 makes a good counter.

    I mean he was the only bot left by the time I got to him

    Bludgeon being the final boss was anticlimactic. My R4 5* OGP crushed him easily in 4*. WJ in the final Mission was a genuine PITA, though. And WTF is wrong with Screamer? I got no burns off any of his heavy attacks. So disappointed in that. Otherwise, love the Mission.

    I wish Bludgeon would have been more challenging. Miss the days when bosses were actual bosses. Overall though, I appreciate the twist with the new mods. Same fights but at least something different.
  • iBKiBK Posts: 193
    Yeah, every other bot was more difficult than bludgeon IMO. G1 Megs made short work of him. Fight was over within a minute.

    I like this event so far. Only had time to do the first chapter but it's fun.

    It was nice with something new, and the mods were fun at the beginning, but after the first two missions it mostly got tedious for me personally to be honest. However the dialogue was fun and I liked the references I found there.
  • JIMMY_SABJIMMY_SAB Posts: 677
    Speaking of dialogue. The Evil Dead Army of Darkness movie quote reference was awesome — “ Klaatu barada nikto”

    Ah...I've almost completed it...anyone know a good bot for scorponok?

    TC is great to remove Backfire and debuffs. I used Shocky.

    Just usual technique mostly. I did shorten my Melee combo to just a single hit and then SP1 once he started his revival routine. That helped keep his Power Gain down so I could kill him 5-7 more times.

    It doesn't work for me sadly...scorponok deals too much damage for me to last...I tried grimlock...he failed
  • Finished it, not a single revive (first 2 missions were all perfect)

    Final Thoughts: I felt that it was much easier than the previous chrono-vector mission, mostly due to the fact that there wasn’t a wide range of annoying mods this time. I used Tronus and he ploughed through most of the bots, since he’s so good for long fights such as these. The new revive mod was kinda fun and annoying at the same time, you never know when the opponent would jump back up. Even the rewards were good, though I would have liked it better if some 5 star shards were thrown in there. Overall, I liked the event (especially the dialogue) and hope we get more such opportunities to gain T4 basics in the following months...
