Space Crusade walkthrough
SPACE CRUSADE HINTS SCAN THE MAN ~~~~~~~~~~~~ A bit of advice about the scanner: DONT use it! ALthough it's nice to know what's waiting for you when you enter a room, it also gives the aliens the chance to move in and attack you. MARCHING ORDERS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It's a good idea to keep your squad fairly tight. Stragglers make easy targets. However, don't bunch them too tightly together. Set off a booby trap and, if Lady Luck rolls the die against you, the who;le squad could be wiped out in one fell swoop. The bolter-carrying marine is the least effective member of the team and is fairly expandable. Use him as a scout to open doors and the like. BY YOUR COMMANDER ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The commander is naturally the hardest geezer in your swuas of marines, so use him wisely. For a start, when tooling him up give him a powerfist and a powersword. Although this means he can't engage in any long-range combat because he had no gun or missile launcher, it does make him super-powerful in hand-to-hand battles and when the aliens start amassing this can be areal life saver for all concerned. Your commander has six hit points and so can afford to lose one. Your grunts, howeverm with their measly one hit point, can't. In a big firefight with a gang of marauding orcs or gretchins, place your command in between your marines and the aliens to absorb some of the shots and protect the boys. On retrieval missions, always use your commander to pick up the object. Give ti to a grunt and chances are he'll get killed before you get off ship. Melta bombs are by far the most effective one-off weapon available. Use it to fry a Dreadnough or any other tough cookies encountered. TIDY YOUR ROOM! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If you're exploring and you come across a bunch of monsters, make sure you mop them all up before moving on. A feeble little gretchin, left to its own devices, can decimate a squad if the dice rolls are in its favour. In a room packed with aliens use a Blind Grenade and, if possible, a Fire Order card - this should wipe them out in no time at all. This technique is particularly handy on Level 2. Missile launchers are excellent for mass alien slayings. If there's a whole bunch of them standing together fire the missile between them - with good aiming and luck on your side you could wipe them all out in one go. Remember to use targetters with missile launchers and power guns. THE LONE WARRIOR ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Even if you're playing a solo game, still use the other marine chapters. (You don't have to use them if you don't want to.) They will help spread out the Alien Event cards and keep some of the nastier ones off your back.
