I sprint, the barrier generator dissipating as I focus on running - spotting a locker past the smoke.

I slide behind the construct, gunfire clattering into metal. I'm safe for now, whatever gun she's using doesn't have enough firepower to chew through my cover. Doesn't stop her tossing a 'nade my way if I linger though.

Even under the gunfire, I can still hear the clattering of her armor and equipment as she runs.
Figures - she knows I've got something that can keep track of her, so she's dropping all pretences.

I made it through - pushing forward was the right move.
If I had fallen back, that would allow Mnemosyne to gain momentum against me. If she can't get far enough away to setup, we've got an advantage.

She's still running - unlike Nickel though, the moment I catch her, it's going to be easier to lay into her with my weapons.

Judging from her position, whatever's firing at me has to be one of her wind-levitated guns. That means it's not going to be able to reload, not without her watching over it.
When it runs out, I've got free movement. I'd like to catch her off-guard, so the first thing that comes to mind is jumping OVER the lockers between us using the Amp Rings to cut off her escape route.
Another option's using a Frozeneye and rushing her even faster, try to snag her with a Pitch shot. But since I've still got limited visibility, I don't know what's on the other side of the divider right now.

What say you?
No. 1055753 ID: 15c72a

She immediately spotted you despite stealth? Hmm. I bet she can sense you disturbing the air/smoke. Probably at a limited range though, like our map. Regardless, that means stealth is useless..

Is it possible for you to knock the lockers over? Can you teleport one of those bombs inside the locker she's behind? She won't be able to see it coming, and if you're lucky it will fully expose her position so you can take a good shot at her afterwards. On the other hand, if it's a particularly sturdy locker it might contain the explosion and waste the charge.

I'm partial to jumping on top of the locker rather than fully over it. You won't be charging directly into unknown territory and you'll have an escape route if she's got a trap back there.
No. 1055809 ID: 15a025

Jumping on the lockers might be a good test here. If she's on the move, she might not be watching her windgun, so it might just be aiming at our last known location.

If it continues to aim at us on top of the locker, that either tells what kind of control she has with that power, or she's still close by.
No. 1055857 ID: 9a2966

We've verified she's got some way to keep track of you despite the smoke then. Watch out for getting shot - leaping on top of the shelves might make you a target from multiple vantage points - assuming she can have more than one wind gun at a time, that is.

Tempting to just knock the shelving over with an explosion, but that may not be a good spend I think, plus it might give her data on how you used it and you should still want that to be your trump surprise. Given that you want to cross the area to get to her, you may not want to cover it in flaming pitch. At least not in a way that'll risk getting any of it on you!

Are these the kind of shelves you could topple with your amp rings from above (rocking them, leaping into them with force, lifting using leverage, whatever) and then ride them down? She might use a wind burst to protect herself and blast the shelves right back at you, mind, so you'd have to be ready to dodge, tuck and roll to avoid having your plan backfiring.
No. 1055872 ID: e5709d

If we were working for her, I'd have her deploy some trap cyclones on her closest cover, and then prepare and aim a debuff gadget. We need to overcome that scenario while making leeway for other strategies.

Use your Amp Ring to bash the full cover over. From half-cover, blindfire your tar in an arc, then charge in with suppressing fire.

Also, I just wanted you to know that Armin was the name of a famous sociopath who outsmarted an entire planet and accidentally ushered in the apocalypse because he mindlessly worshipped an angry maniac until it was too late. And red ear dye is for Val'Sarghess rank-and-file thugs. Mnemosyne may be reading our CAI, time to troll the hell out of her.
No. 1056114 ID: 96112b

Now is the time to press the advantage a bit further.

Use Barrier Generator to block the incoming fire from the guns, then use the Pitch Prefect teleport an Explosive Disc into Mnemosyne's path. Proceed to fire with your Dual Guns.

Let's do this.

>Knock the shelving over using the Amp Rings or an explosion.
I'm not going to have enough leverage to push these lockers over from the ground - even if I've got more strength, they're lined up against another set of lockers on the other end. But toppling them from above.... now that's an option.

>Can you teleport a bomb into one of the lockers she's hiding behind?
Not a bad idea, but I do need line of sight and the lockers are two sets, so the ones on her end aren't the ones I can reach even with teleporting explosives.

>She immediately spotted you through stealth? She could probably sense you disturbing the smoke.
Good observation, don't think she has omnipotence or anything though. It's just like with Nickel, she could probably set up a few weapons to automatically activate without her present.
She knows I'm there, but I don't think she has fine enough control to detect where I am precisely. That being said, I don't know if she's somehow using her portals like an air tripwire.
Doesn't mean stealth is useless though - just because I got spotted once doesn't mean I should just stand out in the open and get shot.

I think the best move for me here is to leap up with the Amp Rings - but, when I'm on top, I've got a bit of an idea to pus this thing over.

As such, I manifest the rings around my ankles and I prepare to jump.

There's a strange feeling about it, jumping up like this. It reminds me of the explosive jump I pulled off in Nickel's fight - but this time, it's all me.

I can feel the recoil of my landing get absorbed by the Amp Rings.

Now to enact the plan.
These things are only going to be active for a little longer, but while I'm at it, I use Plug as leverage, combined with the Amp Rings to push one of the lockers over, re-manifesting the rings around my arms instead.
A sword can make for a half-decent crowbar depending on the circumstance, but I'm straining myself to get the locker apart.
I swear, it feels like I'm practically bending this sword, but when I can reform and fix it instantly, I'm not going to feel bad for Astrolysis' craftsmanship.

And just before the charge on the Amp Rings give out, finally, the balance is tipped on the locker and it starts falling as if it was in slow motion.

Dust, smoke and crashing metal.
Heh. Hope the higher ups don't mind the cracks in the floor now, because there's no way that's going to be easy to fix.

I drop back down onto the other side of the locker I was standing on as bullets hiss past me. Guess it was too much to expect to get her down with a more simple and straightforward move - but if she's got any traps on this side of the locker, they're gone now.
Still, with this move she's still on the back-foot.

This whole time I haven't even been able to get a clean look at Mnemosyne yet - she's playing keepaway. I doubt she was hurt at all by that play, but brewing chaos... it ain't a bad feeling.
Going with this route; I'm sure some of her prepared traps have been rendered null because of it.

I'm fine with being patient, but we can't let her get a breather and recover - the question is if closing the gap is the best solution here.

The Amp Rings are temporarily on cooldown, but they should be ready again fairly soon.

Barrier Generator's not up yet either, but it should be ready again soon too.

I've still got plenty of options on me, but I want to keep pushing. Question is, how? Both my movement gadget and shield gadget are down, so I'm at more risk of getting hurt. That being said, I could drop down, kick over one of the remaining tables or even use it as mobile cover as I close the distance even further. Hard Cover lets me get the most out of it, so it's not impossible.
No. 1056606 ID: 15c72a

You could try hitting her with a laser while your defensive gadgets cool down. She's probably behind cover at the moment, but with the setup we have on the laser cover won't help her much.

Can we try to flank her around the other side of the lockers?
No. 1056665 ID: 503f78


wait... this is stupid.

You want to keep charging forward into a series of ambushes she set up for you?

Surely there's a loop around option that'll knock a series of ambushes down to one. You're smarter than just chasing after an opponent who had time to prepare.

Did we get a scan of the arena before the chaff went up? First and foremost, if I was setting up a series of traps I'd want to have a destination that gives me a big positional advantage. Somewhere in here is her killbox. If you get to it before she does, you win.

For now, use hard cover to press up, but don't expose yourself. We need to keep her running her plan for now but our goal should be to get past her and take up the position she was trying to lure you to before she can.
No. 1056706 ID: 1371b2

You can throw Sound and Fury out and recall them right?
…Dumb thought but we could use tossing those to misdirect her into thinking we threw a Gernade and shoot her when she repositions, if we get that guessing game right.
No. 1056723 ID: 9a2966

You know of one place where there are few traps and plenty of cover for your pursuit of her.

>Plan: get down and after
Can you scamper down there without getting shot or taking fall damage without the amp rings? If she's doing the thing I think she's doing, you'll want to leap over the next set of shelves as well to cut her off, once your Amp Rings have recharged.

She's essentially zig-zagging you through these rows of shelves where she's laid down a bunch of traps and obstacle courses to slow you down. Probably she was hoping that you would be hindered or made careful of stumbling into more traps and ambushes, letting her have that lead she apparently wants.

She might expect you on the next set of shelves - but she can't exactly stop you from leaping them without getting involved with her wind powers herself (or having an emplaced trap there, in which case we've been successfully anticipated) - which is a good opportunity to pull out one of your aces, when or if she reveals herself.

For now, you can focus on pursuing, maximizing your cover and minimizing your presence to make her less able to predict and take potshots at you. Get her in your sights before you waste one of your cards - literally or metaphorically.
No. 1056729 ID: 629f2e

I agree with the idea a couple other people suggested of flanking her. Her plans are already not playing out the way she might want 'em to, so now we just need to continue to intercept her.

This WILL put us at risk, even with use of cover, so we'll want to take some precautions. Why not use an Echoscribe card to copy the Blink Capacitor to help position yourself? If you can land outside of the smoke, she may not have a clue where you are afterwards.

Good way to put it, Sykes.

Playing into her plans, charging into everything laid out in front of me - that ain't better than me just following orders.

>Why not use an Echoscribe card to copy the Blink Capacitor?
'Bout time we made use of one of these again.

One Echoscribe card has been consumed. Three remain.
Mnemosyne's someone who's adaptable - but even if you're adaptable, you have to keep track of new information.
'Sudden teleportation'... now how's anyone supposed to predict that?
I know I couldn't.

The gray cube between my fingers - it's going to be my first strike against someone who really represents what Site 70 is about.
It whirs and hums - and once again, I feel that sensation.

I warp from my position on the lockers, cutting off Mnemosyne's route.
More importantly - I have a clear shot right as she emerges from the smoke.

My guns are at the ready. I pull their triggers.

Even right after taking a direct shot to the shoulder, I can see her right herself, taking up her gun again. This ain't like the icicle I took in the shoulder from Judi - she's gotta have broken bones or joints in there, right?
I'm getting the hell out of here.

I dive down and roll to cover, a burst of lead heading back toward me as I skirt out of the way.
Hah! My first proper exchange with one of the best soldiers in Site 70 - and I'm unscathed!

We may not have a map of the area from before the fight started, but I've got two workin' eyes over here.
We're nearly to the end of this current area and with that exchange just now, I've at least proven myself a threat.
Mnemoyne's aim is going to be worse due to her injury. Judging from her grit, I doubt it's all that much.
We can expect her to pull out the big guns now, but there's a solid chance she'll be retreating further into the Sector as well - toward whatever killbox she may be trying to lure me into.

That's the thing about these Sector Bosses - if they've got a whole Sector to work with, they absolutely want to capitalize off of it.
But it's on me to defeat them, to prove that I've got the chops.
The only thing I can do is follow - but if I'm going to make it as much of a pain for them to retreat as possible, all the better.
No. 1057230 ID: e5709d

Time to play her strength against itself.
She has more skill in combining gadgets and more creativity in applying them, but she has to spend time maintaining those.
You caught her off guard. She's letting her imagination run wild about what you'll do next. This is an opportune time to push her into overestimating your capabilities (that is, overestimating what you're willing to sacrifice) and waste time constructing contingencies on the fly that can be countered with brute force.

Plan: Make it look like you've summoned a turret or a clone. She'll spend far too much to keep herself from getting flanked, and then you hunt for the perfect angle to push through her defenses.
No. 1057237 ID: 9a2966

Well done. Hm. Shoulder hit. Wonder if that'll affect her mood. That's how Armintell died, after all.

Let's consider our options. She's back in the smoke - and quickly, judging by the map, so she might've used a movement option of her own. We also know that the aisle's traps are disabled, making the risk of rushing down it less. Though you should beware wind portals, she could still place those.

>Amp Ring+Hard Cover - NOW we charge in blindly
You could do what she may have initially expected - rush in at (Amp Ring-enhanced) speed, utilizing Hard Cover to get in close and try to tag her with the Beam Unit. That'll ignore her own cover and armor, to score another wounding hit - idea: can you tag her where she might have gadgets and let the beam unit tear those apart? She doesn't keep all her stuff inside an Ignition Complex, after all.

>Amp Ring+Dead Silence - the sneaky high ground
Alternatively you could hop up on the lockers again to use the proven strategy of using the trap-free highway. Here you'd likely stay at a better range to make her poorer aim affect shots. If she even notices you're already back up there, if you use Dead Silence to scale/jump as quietly as possible. Mind you, we still haven't figured out how she kept track of you initially, so speed is probably more important than stealth.

Her wind-guns might still be steady though, so keep low up there if you go that route - she knows you've utilized the locker tops to great effect before, and might position assets to cover them better.
No. 1057448 ID: 15a025

I like the idea of getting some sneaky high ground. We might even get an opportunity to ambush her with the pitch perfect to further slow her down.

I don't think the amp rings are recharged yet.
Alternative would be to shove a table against the lockers to get a better path up, but I dunno if we can do that; there are likely traps in the next part of the room so we can't just grab a table unmolested. We'd have to use one as cover while moving another.

Personally I'd rather try going in and tripping some traps to see where they are, while we have the advantage. We have to get through this room eventually anyway. Doing it while the main enemy is reeling is a good idea, and using a single table for cover along with the Shield is likely to work.

>Head back on top of the lockers and approach her again!
>It's a trap-free route.

That's right - if anything, you wouldn't be accounting for people being able to reach and run along things that high up.
She could be baiting me back into another trap on the ground, so this is the route to take.

The Amp Rings are recharged and ready, so hopping up there's no problem at all.
I can feel the adrenaline rush - I've already landed one good hit, so I need to capitalize off of this advantage.

Zipping up onto the top of the lockers with another empowered jump, I start running, my guns at the ready.

>Speed's probably more important than stealth here.
Given that she's seen me tip over one of the lockers before, she already knows that it's a possibility. But if I'm fast enough...

Taking cover first.
Bloody hell...
That really stings!

Okay okay, should have accounted for the fact that she had gadget access just like me. This is just like the damn fight against Judi - it's easy to keep track of opponents with smaller sets of equipment, but I didn't even realise that she still had one of those!
It's a Velocity Javelin - those things work a bit differently to the Amp Rings, in that it's an absolute crapton of acceleration. Honestly, the thing's basically designed to throw rocks at ridiculous speeds, turning them into great projectiles.
Not so good for keeping anything else intact, but -
She's curving the javelin.
Is she putting a wind portal on the side of her projectile? That's one way to do it.
Means she doesn't have to aim as good if she can just redirect those damn things into me.

Mnemosyne's off-radar and judging from her movements, she's already moving further in.
I've got no choice but to follow her, and I'll bet she's going to try to bandage herself up if I give her that opportunity.
Rushing in's no longer quite on the table, given that she knows that's going to be my main option. But surprising her... that's still an option.

I'm a little wounded, but I'm still going along fine. It took a chunk out of my side, but it didn't hit anything vital yet. Good thing my constitution's helping clear up some of the pain.

We're going to have to pursue her, but take adequate measures so I'm not going to eat another one of those blasts.
From what I remember of it, the Velocity Javelin's a rechargeable gadget just like the Beam Unit or my Barrier, so we have to watch out for it. It's powerful, but it leaves her pretty damn open.

So what's the move now? I can still keep going - and giving her more time to set up or adjust her traps for my current kit's not too good of an idea. There's only one entrance into the next area - but we should think about how we get through it.

The Amp Rings are temporarily on cooldown, but they should be ready again fairly soon.
No. 1058425 ID: e5709d

Start off by blindfiring your beam projector. Sweep the room for any turrets with thin layers of armor. Then dodge roll into the next set of cover.
No. 1058428 ID: 273c18

Just go in that narrow space. She wasn't going to lure you in there to begin with so it's trap-free, and she's probably relocating to the next room so I doubt she'll try to ambush you at the end. You can just have your shield up anyway.
No. 1058723 ID: f69af6

Let us approah the entrance to the next area. No rushing in, however. Take a sharp look for traps. keep your head down to avoid enemy fire, or enemy floating guns. Update the map accordingly.
We will plan the next step of the counter-offensive when we have the first few metres of the next area laid out on the map.

So now we know a little more about her load out. She can use her wind powers to improve her aim and correct bad shots.
I wonder if we use the silkweave gauntlets with the amp rings, if it could create enough force to protect yourself from another one of those shots. I don't have high hopes, but it might be something to keep in mind as a last ditch plan.

For now, scout out the hallway. She might either have another gun ready to fire away at you, or some other kind of turret trap.
No. 1059133 ID: 1371b2

Odd thought: how easy is it to recognize if that smoke she’s been setting up is being effected by the wind versus natural circulation?
A second thought is doing something shock-waves like you’re jumping at her again only it was just you punching the floor to make said shockwave and get her to whiff.
Not viable if she ditches the low visibility but otherwise…Might throw her off.

>She wasn't trying to lure you in there so it's not trapped.
Good point, and it would be harder for her to escape if I was hot on her heels AND she had to avoid traps on the way through.

Running up through the area, I clear out from the first room and into the connecting hallway. It's bright - and more importantly, there's nothing blocking the way.

>I wonder if we use the Silkweave gauntlets with the amp rings, if it could create enough force to protect yourself from another one of those shots.
Given that the things create a kinetic barrier - I wonder if it's enough, or even stronger than the Barrier Generator's shield. By the looks of it, the Velocity Javelin would go through a Barrier Generator shield with no problem, especially since it's unmodified.

>Odd thought: how easy is it to recognize if that smoke she’s been setting up is being effected by the wind versus natural circulation?
Probably not easy if she's trying to keep it subtle. But we're long since out of the smoke now. Probably best to worry if she drops another smokebomb.

>Approach the entrance to the next area - no rushing in, though.
I slide to a stop near the entrance - and in the distance, I can see the giant cargo elevator that's used to shift ammunition and military gear.

Pulling up the map, even with the reduced range...
I'm glad I didn't rush through. Scan's picking up two weapons floating by the exit-way.
Odds are they're pointed right at the centre.
This is a bit tricky - I could spend a card or one of the Pitch Prefect's rounds to deal with it, but there's also no guarantee that she doesn't have more prepared on the other side, especially since I don't have a good sense of the area's geometry.

Similarly, I could use the Silkweave Gauntlets to protect me from the gunfire, but blocking gunfire from two different angles when I don't know WHAT guns she has set up... that's tricky.

I don't know where Mnemosyne is relative to me, either. I think that's a stairwell to my right, but I don't know if Mnemosyne's taking the elevator or the stairs down. We'd want to catch her so that there isn't more room for her to gain distance from us.

Besides dealing with the hanging guns, we're going to need to think of a way to catch up to her, regardless of which route she takes.
No. 1059299 ID: 1371b2

You’re a good enough shot with Sound and Fury to hit both guns right?
I’m thinking shoot the guns to knock them off from aiming at you, pop the barrier generator and then move forward, quickly if you can manage that without getting shot.
A part of me wonders at the notion of like dodging via rolling past the guns instead, but that’s me being silly.

Use a Pitch Prefect shot! We aren't close to running out yet, and if we do then we have 3 Breezecycle cards that we could refill it with.

Once that's taken care of, I see some medium cover beside the gun on the right that you could hide behind while surveying the area, but without knowing what direction she went, you can't use the cover adequately.

The Barrier Generator is the smart option, but how open are you to blind-firing the beam into the room?

Yeah just use a Pitch prefect. It's a renewable resource unlike the cards, and I don't think we have a clever solution here. MAYBE you could pierce through the edge of the corner with your laser to destroy one, so you can block the other one with your gauntlets? Of course, you need to know exactly where it is, which would probably require peeking around the corner with your shield up.

Bust out the sound and fury and put those sharp shooter skills to the test. Blast'em away and activate the barrier if things get a little too heated.

>Use the Pitch Prefect, we've got plenty to spare.

Aye aye!
Using the Pitch Prefect, a quick shot flies out - completely invisible.
Mm. I can already smell the burning tar from here. Not exactly stealthy, but the clattering of gunparts to the ground's made it more clear that I'm good to go.

Down to four shots. Still plenty for Mnemosyne.
Rushing through the smoke, I emerge out into the elevator room.

The creaking of machinery...
The damn thing's so loud it's shaking the floor!

She just started it up, and I can see the cargo elevator sink further down as it goes.
That thing's used to transport munitions to the lower floor, but I don't see any sign of Mnemosyne or her traps so far.
She could be hiding behind or near one of the boxes, but that thing's descending fast - it's going to be out of scanner range real quick.
Place is real bloody open, but I can't afford to just stick around.

Gameplan update, then.
It's still safe to jump onto the elevator, but the big question is if I want to.
Stairwell's to my right, and that thing's going down for a bit. I could jump down, but I'm not sure the Amp Rings or the Barrier's going to cushion a fall like that enough.
But I've got a few options for dealing with Mnemosyne.

1. I jump down there, engage her at a closer range. Problem is that we don't know if she's even ON the elevator, let alone unprepared.

2. I fire on her from above, using whatever I've got. Main issue with this one's that I don't know where she's at, so this could just waste time.

3. I head down the stairs to meet her on the other end, or to confront her if she's hiding inside of it. If she's on the elevator, she may set stuff up if I try to cross the place. If she's on the stairs, well, I'll be able to catch her offguard if she's not already prepared.

Whatever range limits we've got on the radar right now probably extends vertically, so she could be at the bottom of the staircases for what we know.
If we're going with something, pick one of the plans and suggest how I go about it. None of my gadgets are on cooldown right now, so I should be ready to roll.

2/3, This is another good opportunity for your Pitch Prefect. The brilliant thing about explosives is that you don't really need to know where your opponent is. Just a general idea might do some damage.

Fire one or two shots at areas on the elevator she might be using as cover, and then go down the stairs to face her. She might not even be on it, but if she is you might secure a decent advantage.

Disagree, we don't even know where she is in general.

1, but jump down near some cover.

3, use the stairs.

Supporting the strategy of the Himitsu splinter.
Remember Mnemosyne might use the landings on each stair to set up traps or use them as cover to set an ambush.

It may also be wise to use the Amp Rings to increase our speed once we make it to the lower floor.
