You are in for an unpleasant surprise in the Chapter 5: Wildwood Warfare at Kloden mission of Valkyria Chronicles. A boss fight is waiting for you at the end of the level. Here are some tips to help you out in the surprising encounter.
Focus on leveling your scouts, snipers, shocktroopers and engineers. Spend your funds on upgrading the Edelweiss, particularly on defense.
The invading Empire has a supply base in the Kloden Wildwood area of Gallia. Your squad must invade and seize the base in order to stop the supply flow.
The enemy’s base camp is captured.
– 20 turns passed
– Welkin dies
– The Gallia’s base camp is captured
– All ally units (including reserves) are killed
You have two paths towards the supply base. Include one engineer each in the north and south path. Adding one scout and at least one shocktrooper to each path is also recommended. Finally, add one sniper to the south team.
This is the first mission in Valkyria Chronicles where you will run into land mines. Engineers are the only unit that can disarm mines. In addition, tanks can detonate smaller mines by rolling over them. Larger mines will deplete the tank’s thread hit points, however. So make sure to look for land mines when traversing through the terrain.
Occupy the North Camp
Use your first turn to take the north camp from the enemy. Take out the scout and anti-tank cannon. Afterwards, occupy the camp and take up defensive positions. Make sure you bring along a shocktrooper to help protect the other units because enemies will be invading the camp soon afterwards.
Occupy the South Camp
With the anti-tank cannon out of the way from the north camp, it is time to occupy the south one. Use the Edelweiss to roll over the wooden blockage. Afterwards, use your sniper to take care of the two lancers besides the enemy’s tank.
With them defeated, move the Edelweiss and an engineer towards the enemy’s base. Use the engineer to disarm the mines and repair the Edelweiss and use the Edelweiss to attack the enemy’s tank head-on.
Finally, take care of the remaining ground units and occupy the south camp.
Fighting the Lupus
Before entering the supply base, send a scout up the path to the right of the south camp to take care of the anti-tank cannon. At the same time, move your north team towards the supply base (but don’t enter it) and take care of ground units along the way. Finally, use a sniper from the southern path to defeat the ground units inside supply base.
With everything else out of the way, move the Edelweiss and an engineer to the supply base in order to trigger the brief boss fight with a tank named Lupus. Attack the Lupus with the Edelweiss. Make sure your engineer follows closely behind and stay out of the line of fire by using the Edelweiss as a shield. As long as you have an engineer to repair any damages on the Edelweiss, you will survive the surprising fight against the Lupus.
Before you can finish it off, the Lupus will retreat. Take care of the remaining enemy units left in the supply base and capture the main base camp from the enemy to complete the mission.
Congratulations on beat Lupus in the Chapter 5: Wildwood Warfare at Kloden mission of Valkyria Chronicles!
