Snowy Tundra Vault (Elite) Tips and Strategy

Bring Support Heroes

Most often this mission will last long especially as you unlock the Vault. With such a long series of battles ahead, having the Support Heroic of heroes such as Ms. Marvel's Healing Spirit, Black Widow's Veil of Shadows and Captain America's Rally Cry will help in keeping your team alive.
