Have you checked out Area 1N page yet? I explain my Echelons set up [Here].
Welcome to second night level missions in Girls Frontline! I’ll be looking to try my best to guide commanders through these missions with hopes to help unlocking equipment calibration by beating 2-4N.
Area 2 shows relatively low difficulty change from Area 1, but gets noticeably stronger in later half of the missions. If you want to breeze through the missions, again I strongly recommend least raising 2 or 3 RF dolls to 4x link before giving it a go unless you are confident with kiting and retreating for damage control.
3 Echelons should be plenty with now help of Friends Echelon in order to clear current missions. One thing to keep in mind is that in Night missions, enemy movements are completely random. So be flexible with your movement. I can only give a general guide that will work most of the time, but minor adjustments will come from you, commander.
One important thing that will sound obvious but crucial if you are following my setup: If you don’t have HG in your squad and want to call in 2nd/Friend Echelon, you can’t because you don’t have vision of helipad. Which makes HG mandatory on first Echelon deployed on the mission. Keep this in mind!
I don’t need to use Friend Echelon as much since I’m well equipped to handle these missions, but if you are having trouble, always consider using a friend echelon at a tight spot.
**** It is important to be flexible in mission due to Girls Frontline does not have fixed enemy movements. So adopt accordingly.****
S-Rank condition: Kill all 6 unit in 4 turns
Required Squads: 2 [AR + AR or RF] + 1 Friend Echelon
Shown enemy str: 5,200
Since map is all normal enemy units, I swapped back the RF echelon back to helipad and left AR squad in the front. (I also did this since AR team doesn’t have HG)
Friend Echelon is being used to secure vision at Turn 2 since it moves forward one to connect radar with friendly node.
At the starting on Turn 3, you should have full view of remaining enemy units. Since you have 1 extra turn, Just make sure you have enough action points to get to the rest of the enemy units.
S-Rank condition: Kill all 7 unit in 5 turns
Required Squads: 2 [RF & AR]
Shown enemy Str: 5,800
Map View: Notice positions of armor unit vs normal unit divided in two parts.
Normally I would spawn AR unit with HG but I was being lazy. Either way, first move is to take helipad within reach from starting point.
As mentioned in the map view, armor units are all on the bottom. So move AR unit 1 to right, spawn RF echelon, then move RF echelon down 1 to take radar.
If you notice number of enemy units destroyed, we already taken down 5, with 2 remaining on board with 2 turns to go. For me, armor unit on the bottom went left instead of up or to right so I spent all my action points killing and taking helipad on the south. If that is not the case for you, spend spare APs to move AR echelon forward one, or spawning dummy echelon to secure additional AP next 2 turns. You should have plenty movements to hunt down remaining units.
S-Rank condition: Kill all 10 unit in 6 turns
Required Squads: 3 [RF & AR & AR/RF]
Shown Enemy Str: 6,400
Map View.. We will talk about that dinergate later.
RF echelon is not great at dealing with dinergate units. As much as they are adorable, it will eat your RF echelon alive. So get AR echelon down there. I believe it’s consistent that dinergate unit will always run towards radar node on turn 1.
This is where having to come prepared comes in clutch. If you are lacking well prepared echelon, you could substitute Echelon 2’s location with friend echelon, set to “eliminate”. Make sure RF echelon is on radar node before ending turn.
2-4N [Boss level]
