Rocket's Red Glare Tips and Strategy

Eliminate Enemies First

There are multiple waves of enemies here that can disrupt you in your mission once you get to the space station. Eliminate all waves first before attempting to overload the space station, otherwise you will get damaged heavily and fast.

Focus On Isolating Enemies

There are a couple of enemies here that are quite difficult to dispose of, such as the Adept Adaptoid and the SPIN Synthoid. Try and fight them off one at a time instead of focusing on area damage.

Solving The Puzzle: AIM Building

This building is found to the east of the first objective of the mission. Depending on the type of switch, each one has a different activation mechanism.

Here are their types and locations:

Circular Switch

These switches are primarily located on the tower at the side of the building. You need to hit them once with a ranged attack to activate them.

Locations

Avengers Rocket Red Glare Chest 02 Switch 2-3.png The second and third can be easily shot if you ascend the stairs nearby.

Locations
