The Rustyard Tips and Strategy

Split into 2 Groups to Work

In The Rustyard, dividing into groups and working will be the key. In the beginning, Alph and Brittany will both start from different locations, so be sure to check the map while dividing labor and exploring.

Retrieving the Pieces in the Later is Fine

Usually completing the bridge quickly is a must, but in The Rustyard it is not such a high priority. You will have time to finish it in the latter half of the mission, so complete it without rushing.
