It might just be elitist attitude, but I’d also prefer to hear opinions from those who have beaten Inconceivable to Master, consistently.
I myself have done The Hive on Master once, and The Mines on Master, five times.
Also maxed out Mac, Keegan and Lahni to Level 18, but only Mac and Keegan have their cards are all maxed out Level 5. I’m currently maxing all Lahni’s cards to Level 5.
These opinions about lack of ammo should be resolved by having a reliable Keegan. And letting Mac take most of Ammo Boxes for Boltok Bloody Shot. Boltok Bandolier helps increase Boltok ammo capacity. So instead of starting with 12, you’d start with 24 bullets at Level 5.
The enemies being tanky. Mac should be the one to double headshot most Drones, Grenadiers, Snipers and Hunters in the face. Perfect active reload. Imago would take one headshot to bleed him out on Inconceivable. So it’s much better to give him Ammo Boxes, than Lahni or Keegan getting Ammo Boxes.
Keegan should have the Explosives. Frags, Boomshot, Torque Bow, Dropshot, Salvo. And let him get Explosive Ammo Box. He should be using Recharge Bounty and mark as many possible. He would be the one to take out multiple enemies at once with explosives, or decimating Boss-like enemies with Shredder. A single Frag tag on Warden on Inconceivable with Level 5 Shredder is enough to bleed him out. Just one Frag.
I haven’t bothered to do The Hunters on Master yet. Seems complicated. But also would take days without a video guide, when I could just max a Hivebuster to Level 5 cards in 3 days from Level 15. It’s that grindy.
When it comes to melee combat, players should be doing the melee combo. Holding B for double slashes, tap B for kick back, then Y for meat shield or B for execution.
And the Bastion for Gauntlet takes 3 Bloody Shots on Inconceivable. Not that hard.
And have to let Lahni do executions from behind on Rejects if possible, because she gets time reduced for Ultimate with Ambush.
The Breaker Mace should be given to Mac because it goes well with his Barrier ability. To push forwards hard. Bonus duration if he kills while Barrier up, that Legendary card.
Even playing Escape, I found it odd to max out Legendary cards to Level 5, before the Epic ones.
