Survival Guide - Dust Settles: Focus Path Offensive
Focus paths are end-game style paths used
to boost a camp higher than others through large or cheaply achievable score
boosts. There are two ways that you can combat other camps on their specific
path in order to help drop their score so you can have less competition. The first
way is your level 3 ops missions. The
second way is an anti-nuke specific attack using cruise
Once you have constructed a focus building, your special ops will have a new level of missions geared specifically towards attacking another camp's focus related score. These missions may open before your level 2 missions if you do not have enough wins and research to open those when you set your focus path. The queues for these missions will appear below the queue for level 1 and 2 ops missions.
When you decide to use these missions on a camp, you should first find out
which focus they have. You can do this through the Statistics
page or through the drop down box in each queue where you select your target.
If the camp is within 3 times to 1/3 of your score, you can use one of these
missions on them. Once you select your target in the appropriate queue, you
will select your rules of engagement. You will only be able to select Standard
Operating Procedure or Mission Critical for these missions. If you are attacking
a Military Focus, you will need to select which storage type you want to sabotage.
Finally you will need to type in how many ops
units you want to send. Once you have entered in the information needed, click
"Confirm" in the appropriate box and your mission will be set.
Camps on the Nuke Focus path must also worry
about missile attacks launched at them
by other camps. It takes a great deal of advanced
research to open the ability to build and launch cruise missiles. Any camp
can do the research to build and launch cruise missiles, though camps on the
Nuke Path will have a slight advantage since cruise missiles will be opened
in the course of their nuke related research.
