BriefingEdit

Our long-range scanners have acquired a massive target moving through sector 720. Given its current heading, we believe that a nearby energy reactor is in imminent danger.

Unleashing something of this magnitude can only be the work of The Controller. Whatever its intentions, the situation looks grim.

Regardless we can't just give in. Destroy the target at all costs!

WalkthroughEdit

The MLB-MOONLIGHT left-arm part can be unlocked during the mission. To unlock the part, complete the mission without hiring a consort.

The CBT-FLEET booster part is hidden in this mission. It is located northwest of the starting position. It may be found in a depresion in the ground near the out-of-bounds line.

The best strategy towards defeating the Massive MT is playing a game of cat and mouse. Use the wrecked ship as a shield, blocking the MT's firepower which mainly consists of quad pursuit missile mods, large missile launchers, and twin plasma cannons. Tank ACs with heavy armor work well in absorbing damage and delivering damage. After it takes some damage, it will split in two with the second part dealing additional damage. Unless you're actively working to acquire the OP-INTENSIFY extra part and/or have ammo to spare, it's best to leave the smaller part alone. The reason for this is that it is not nearly as dangerous as the larger, main piece which is the main target. Be sure to keep the wreckage in between at all times, pounding it as it comes around. Following this strategy, you should do fine. Melee or close range weapon is heavily unadvised as the enemy is essentially flying and difficult to face even with a high maneuverable configuration.

An alternate strategy employs high damage-per-second. Equip long-ranged, high-DPS weapons. By combining weapons like CWR-HECTO, CWC-GNS-15, MWR-TM/60, or CWR-M30 with a left-arm part like KWG-HZL50 and an EO core, you will be able to destroy it before it destroys you. Utilise tread-type or quad-type legs to allow for movement while firing, and take advantage of the ability to fire rockets without requiring a lock. You also won't be hindered by your FCS trying to lead the target for you.

Trivia Edit

By having the OP-INTENSIFY part equipped while doing this mission, you will unlock enhanced cooling performance for your AC.

By destroying both parts of the Massive MT while having the OP-INTENSIFY part equipped, you will unlock the ability to fire shoulder mounted cannons while moving.
