A sadistic, cruel officer leading Insurgent forces opposite Rift Town. He captured you and sentenced you to death by forcing to walk across No Man's Land, and found pleasure in doing so.

Tips and Strategies

General Tips

Reiner always starts the battle by casting his Wandering Flame to cause you to run around escaping the fire pillar. It makes you an easy target for his men. Use your own Interrupt skill before he casts his Wandering Flame. It's easier to pick off his grunts before dealing with Reiner himself.

Launch a Scrapnel to interrupt Reiner's Wandering Flame then deploy a Cryo Turret in the center and Pain Launcher behind your turret. Sweep the side for Riflemen not caught by Pain Launcher's trajectory.

Overheat will be your best friend because of its ability to interrupt skills as well as mark every enemy in the area. The best moments to use Overheat is right after inflicting Heatwave on enemies because it lights them on fire and whenever Reiner wants to cast either Wandering Flame or Healing Light.

Suit up your Golem and charge straight into the heart of battle. Use Earthquake to interrupt Reiner's skills. If he successfully casts Wandering Flame, put some distance between you and Reiner so the fire will try and follow you, then use Gravity Leap to close the distance again.
