Mayhem Over Manhattan (Flashback) Tips and Strategy

Bring In The Offense

Use your most powerful attacks here to deal with the more difficult opponents like Exos and Watchdogs. Do not leave an opponent for far too long as they will regenerate health thanks to the mission modifier Resurgence.


It will make it much easier if you use a flyer in this mission (Iron Man or Thor), especially during the boss fight. Having the ability to fly makes it easier to reach the boss's weak spots.

Solving The Puzzle: AIM Building

This is located in the AIM Building almost directly in north of your drop zone. You need to step on the switches for a second to activate them. Here are their locations:

The first two are inside the warehouse.
The third one is on top of one of the gates nearby.
This is on the roof of the warehouse building.

The Warship boss battle will take place in three rounds. It has turrets on its side and its wings that will fire on you, as well as homing rockets on its tail end. Destroy the turrets so you won't be disturbed while attacking the boss. It will also spawn enemies such as different types of Keepers and Drones but disregard them mostly.
