Area 3

Looking for Night missions for Area 3? Click [Here].

Now enemy units’ strength gets higher in this Area. Make sure your squad’s strength is high enough to prevent wasting precious bullets and food especially during time of special events.

While there’s one squad method of S-Rank clear, there are lot of variables that could either make it harder or impossible due to randomness. So I will be sticking to 2 squad method of S-Rank clear to be bit more reliable. Strongly recommend having 2 squads of least 4 links T-dolls for such task to prevent any resource waste and multiple tries but it could be done at lower level with sufficient micro. I have listed MINIMUM strength recommendation on each stage.

Starting from this area a Dummy unit will be used frequently to secure more movement points. What is a dummy unit? Dummy unit is a squad with one handgun with one link that will not be in any battle. This gives 2 main squad an additional movement point while minimizing the human resource expenditure.

Some of the pictures can be bit small for the view but it’s pretty close to original image.

If you use both Friend’s Squad [or Griffin] and dummy squad effectively, full S-Rank clear will be easier than you think.

It is important to be flexible in mission due to Girls Frontline does not have fixed enemy movements. So adopt accordingly.I am using pictures with Korean language on them, anything on it will be translated on the bottom of the picture. Red numbers indicates movements. Number on top left of the picture indicated what turn it is in.

I would like to thank Redin at Inven.co.kr with the image. Without it I would have to spend hours capturing new images.
