Gameplay[]

In-Game Information[]

Very aggressive, this pilot wastes no time before going on the offensive. His strategy combines hit-and-move tactics with an agile, well-outfitted AC. Pilots that hope to face the A-ranked Ravens must first defeat Shade, few do.

Strategy[]

For the first A-ranked Raven in the Arena, Shade is indeed aggressive and is definitely not one to be trifled with. His main threat lies in his 2 shotguns which he uses as his main weapons, and they can not only deal a lot of damage at close range, but also packs a deadly amount of heat stress, so staying further away from him will definitely help. His next most dangerous weapon is his missile launcher. The stealth missiles he uses makes it harder for it to be intercepted/shot down with conventional AMS, so the only way to avoid them is basically to dodge them manually; he usually switches to his missile launchers at mid-range as he reserves his shotguns for the close range onslaught. His easiest to evade weapon is of course his rocket launcher, this is usually not a concern as he only resorts to using his rockets once he runs out (or when he's about to run out) of shotgun ammo. Even though his AC may not seem to have anti-missile defense, he is in fact equipped with inside decoy dispensers, so conventional missiles will have little to no effect on him (at least until he's used up all of his decoys, at which you then rain down a flurry of missiles at him easier.)

Overall, the tip to defeat Shade is to not stray too close to him, avoid his missiles and keep him in your sights (he has the tendency to use overboost to try and evade you) and don't miss too many shots (he's very agile as he's a lightweight so time your shots correctly.)
