Brown Dust Battle Guide – Formation, Cost, Attack Order, Set Effect
Formation – On a tactical board, with three lanes, the player deploys the top mercenaries to slay down the enemy’s team group like a terminator. The very first step you have to do is selecting the characters and building the best formation. It’s always good to deploy the defenders in front to protect the DPS and supporters.
First, tap the load formation button on the screen -> select an empty slot -> tap the deploy button -> drag the mercenaries on the battlefield. When you are in the deployment screen, at the top of the screen, you can check the maximum cost. All the characters in Brown Dust game have a different deploy cost. You can check it on their icon(at the upper-left corner of their icon). Once you have reached the maximum cost, you will not be able to deploy more mercenaries. Once you are done, hit the save formation button and start the battle.
Attack Order -> Attack Order is another one of the key concepts in Brown Dust game’s battle mechanics. Before you start the battle, you can change the attack order; the order in which your units attack. Tap the attack order button at the bottom-left corner of the battle preparation screen -> reset order -> tap the units in attack order. It would be better to let the attackers(High DPS) attack before other units. In some cases, you should let the defenders attack first to make use of their powerful skill.
In the deployment screen, when you select the character; the game will show you some information; for example; 1R, next unit, 2R, skip, and more. What’s the meaning of these abbreviations?
- 1R – It means that the unit attacks the enemies every round
- 2R – It means that the unit attacks the enemies every other round
- First – Front(Target)
- Last – In the rear(Target)
- Skip – One tile over(Target)
- Next Unit – Next ally(Target)
- Random – Randomly(Target)
Set Effect -> If you use the three compatible mercenaries together, a special set effect will get activated. To know about the compatible mercenaries, go to the lobby -> mercenary -> select a mercenary -> go to the last tab; set effects -> here you can see the compatible units.
