Slippery Slope
Commander, our intel reports that the enemy are making a push for one of our offshore power stations.
This situation is a litte unusual due to the small size of the site, its a bit more cramped than you may be used to. You will need to make good use of the extenal video system to be able see all of the defensive locations.
Good luck.

You will almost certainly need to rotate the camera (normally Q and E,) and zoom in and out a bit to be able to see all of the tower tiles, there is no one location where you can see everything.

My apologies to anyone looking for a super grinder mission, the map is simply too small for that, a such I included a HVY5 mission instead.

Scoreboost is not available for any mission.

There are no options available to buy on the Command Shuttle in any mission.

The following missions are included:
Story, Story Competetive Only, Story Open Only, Heavy 5 Competitive Only, Heavy 5 Open Only

Competitive Only missions are intended to be played on Competitive Hard difficulty and Open Only missions are intended to be played on Open Elite. You can play them on other difficulty levels but the gold medal scores will be less relevant.

Note: The Story/Campaign mission does not upload the score to the leaderboards. This is a HPE issue and I cannot fix it. For that reason, this mission is considered to be a practice mission for players who want a slightly easier challenge or have few if any Tower Upgrade Items. For everyone else please use the other Story missions.

All Competitive Only missions have been beaten on Competitive Hard. All Open Only missions have been beaten on Open Elite.
When I say beaten, I mean gold medal scores with no cores lost.

Thanks must go to OCD and Sir Mien who have helped with testing this map. All errors, bugs and balance issues are of course my responsibility not theirs.

If you find any mission too easy on Open Elite, then consider trying the Competitive Hard version of the mission, I am told that it is usually harder. If that is still too easy then feel free to try Competitive Elite mode.

If you find the missions to be too easy on Competitive Elite, or find any other issues, then please post a comment below giving as much information as possible whilst avoiding spoilers.

If you find any mission (other than Competitive Elite,) to be too difficult, then please consider the following options.

1) Rewind a couple of waves and try a slightly different strategy.
2) Start again with a different plan in mind
3) Try a different mission type, or drop the difficulty level. Beat that and come back, hopefully with a different point of view.
4) If you still have problems then post a comment either here, or preferably on the Steam Forums asking for advice.

However, I would like to remind people that most players visiting this page will not have played the map yet. Also, that many players prefer to avoid spoilers until after they have had a few goes at a map.

As such, please try to avoid requesting/posting spoilers on THIS page. By all means, request help on the Steam Forums though.
If you feel you must post a spoiler, please give your post a suitable title, ie [SPOILER] and use the spoiler box option to hide the text of the spoiler.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Shark@tak and TheWatcher Donuts for setting up and maintaining the site.

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Operation40, partly for helping with setting up the site, but mostly for making the command station tool that allows me to do many things with the DG2 maps that would otherwise be difficult or impossible.

I would have stopped making DG2 maps long ago if it werent for their efforts.

      1. Ok 🙂 Done

        only 6 hours of starting over and over again lol 🙂

        You smashed a great score and I think I only fluked mine with some good Briel moments.
