The courier...how to get him out

Recommended Posts

Not sure what to tell you as each level has a unique generation from everyone else.  

 

I will say that if this courier you refer to is the one with a limited amount of moves before he dies then you better make to know where the exit is before rescuing him.  Along with that, try to already have as much of a clean path ahead to the exit as possible because you don't want him continually wasting AP each round.

Like Staypuft said, there isn't much to it. You just have to do it. It all depends on the level. Generally just keep him out of any danger and head straght for the exit. The rest is much up to how strong your team is and how the rest of the mission is going.

You can give him some weapon, just don't forget to take it back. You can use stims on him. If you have 4 agents in a team, you can use shocktrap to paralize one of them and drag into teleport to escape at one turn. Most often I keep one agent with courier on the way to teleport.

If you have 4 agents and are trying to get the courier out, you don't have to send everyone out of the level together, you can send them out separately.  So send an agent or two out, then the others with the courier.

Depending on the level (and agent) setup, I tend to do one of three things:

1) Stim him up one side and down the other so he can sprint to the elevator in like 1 turn.

2) Chaperone him to the elevator with an agent, so long as it doesn't hurt the main mission.

2) Try my best to get him to the elevator but he's otherwise on his own.

There's a courier in this game? I've played over 100 hours and have never encountered this.

 

Are you referring to rescuing prisoners? If so, I've never heard of them called couriers.

 

I'm just confused and trying to figure out what you guys are talking about.

Guards sometimes use that little interrogation room next to the goal item on Security Dispatch missions to rough up targets for information. Couriers often have good information.

Wait wait you mean you can stun the courier?

 

No, but you can stun one of your agents so that you can get five people out through the elevator at the same time.

 

You can use stims on him.

 

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. It is very useful and should be done when possible

Interesting. I stopped doing those missions pretty early on. It always seemed way more cost and time effective to do vault and nanofab missions. I guess I just never ran across a courier.

 

When you say they "often have good information" what do you mean? What kind of information do you get for rescuing them?

Well...my actual problem is getting him out...i wish he could just use a cloaking rig...on security level 5 to 10 it's impossible to get him out.

 

Nope, it is totally possible, even without Stims (though you should use Stims). 5 AP is plenty if your agents are sufficiently upgraded and equipped; you don't need to leave the hostage in cover at the end of every turn.

Late game endless is when it should be getting easier as long as you're doing everything else right. Your team should be getting stronger in order to blitz blowfish missions. Focus on protecting the courier by eliminating the guards for him to take the shortest path, rather than trying to sneak him out.

Matter is that...in an omni shielded facility there tons of guards and i can't create a safe escape route for the courier, its already hard to make one with the agents i already have and  lots of them have multiple pairs of clacking rigs.

You can make almost anything work, but if you aren't keeping up with the difficulty curve, things like getting the courier out alive can be very, very tough.  What day are you on?

Nice.  If you've gotten to day 12, you should be fully upgraded and able to walk through the corps easily.  I start new runs when I hit day 11.

 

I personally like having 2 agents with 2 level 3 disruptors, 1 armor piercing augment and 2 KO augments.  With those 2 agents, you should be able to bring down every guard in the facility and keep them down.  I also take 1 shock trap III and 1 paralyzer III on each agent.  The rest of my gear depends on what agents I find, but often consists of chips and cloaks.

 

Oh, stim III on each agent as well.

 

What are you running on your agents?

Well 3 cloacking rigs level 3 on each, chamaleon movement and holocircuit overloaders (i consider them standard issue), to not talk about the torque injectors, the common weapons are level 3 disruptors.

 

Also if the target is at the Sankaku manifacturing two of my agents carry one flurry gun each.

 

At any other location they carry one biogenic dart each.

You play a much different game than I do.  It's neat to see our playstyles can be on completely opposite ends of the spectrum.

 

I play to sneak around as long as I can, then once things go loud, they go loud.  I usually get to turn 10 before I'm discovered, then I leave unconscious guards everywhere.

 

I don't know how you would get the courier out with your loadout, probably best to just leave him, and at level 12, the credits he gives are worth nothing.
