Black Lotus Base Mission
« on: May 08, 2021, 07:36:06 am »
Done this one a couple of times now, but can't get to the Black Lotus HQ mission.  I've interrogated ninjas, soldiers, etc.  Do I need to capture the Avatar alive?  And if so, how? 

Thanks for this MOD...

to capture the avatar alive (yes, that's needed for the BLHQ) get her shield down by firing smgs/shotguns. then stun grenades, those bio darts or simply clubbing her (if she decides to land on the ground that is)

good news is that the avatar cannot bleed to death which is a saving grace

I think it can overstun thus die if I remember correctly. Unless it is changed.

More often than not whenever I tried killing the avatar it would actually fall asleep, so what I do is try to eliminate almost everyone so that the moment it falls the mission ends without a chance to wake up

It can but I'm less afraid of that happening

Note that KO grenades don't really work against the Avatar. They resist choking damage quite a bit. Your best bet is to take down its shields with conventional weapons and then follow it up with tasers.

The blunt grenades from the grenade launcher work even better, since its shield gives virtually no protection against stun damage. It's perfectly possible and indeed ideal to just use those against it exclusively. If you don't have that, I suppose tonfas or wooden clubs COULD work...if you can get it to stop flying long enough to enter melee range and survive its attacks.
