Easy Lvl 7 Scarab 32,000k Exactly!
After reading a bunch of ppls ideas on how to beat it none of them where to my taste i suppose. i just kept it simple and this is what i did..
Time Completed: 10:18 Seconds. Retried 10:31 Seconds.
Score Completed: 32000. Retried 32000.
Objective Score: 2000
All i used: 2 Fully maxed Scorpions and Forge that's it..
Brief Summary before explanation: I lost 1 hog during the mission and it didnt effect a thing its all bout speed! As you can tell from my score only being bonus and just killing the scarab. time is a big factor don't slow down or pause or youll pass 12minutes in no time and ruin the chance and MUST restart. Again this is my idea, my take on the game it might not work for you but it worked great for me and hope it does for you too!
From the Start You don't notice but you get a free Mac Blast(wont use 600credits) if you launch it before Forge stops talking and then you can send another RIGHT after he stops talking and that one will count as a used one
Take advantage of that since its crucial you nail him 2 times from the start, if you want to finish under 11mins!(1min under PAR!)
Upgraded to 4 reactors(just use 1200 on 2nd one already there).
added armory.The rest lvl 2 supplies.
Station the Rynos some where around the base for cover if needed. Use (Y) when positioning so they can be useful of course..
Turrets all to Anti-Vehicle and only lvl 2 grade. If you want them lvl 3 you can since you will have a bunch of supplies left over, i left them at lvl 2.
I did not upgrade +10 troops because i didnt need them..
Upgrade all your scorpions attributes. During this process use MAC BLAST as much as you can. build 2 scorpions and take them with forge and clear out the right side of the map. killing everything and anything that gets in you way. (power nods and such)
While You are clearing that right side hide behind cover if you need to and MAC BLAST. Then swing all the way back down to your base. wait for the head to pass make your way up the left side and clear out. MAC BLAST. then while behind cover let his head swing towards the right. around this time you should have him under 2/5th's health from the MAC BLAST if done correctly. time should also be around 9minutes. to finish him you will need to abuse that (Y) button and hopefully have an extra mac if you need it but his head shouldn't swing back around by the time you kill it. If anything it'll be towards the middle.
It was that easy. I struggled so much fallowing ppls guides and over thinking it but its not hard at all once you calm down and turn that negativity into Halo wars rage on that scarab THE RIGHT WAY lol.
Takes practice dont give up.. took me bout 10 play throughs to figure my way out of that hole so hope it helps you all.
Enjoy the Achivie!!
