Along Came a Spider Tips and Strategy

Be On the Defensive

There are lots of enemies in this stage. Attacking all the time may not be a good idea as there plenty of shielded enemies here as well as powerful ranged enemies such as the Elite Peacekeeper.

Use Heroics Smartly

While it is advisable to defeat as many enemies as you can through your heroics, there are plenty of difficult opponents such as the Blitz Dreadbot and the Phase Riotbot that will be difficult to bring down. Learn to conserve them until they are necessary.

Solving The Puzzle: AIM Building

This building is found north of the first objective marker in this mission. Depending on the switch, it will have a different activation mechanism.

Here are their locations:

Floor Switch

This switch is found on the ground. You need to stand on it for a second for it to be activated.
