Enemy Strategy

The first encounter has you go up against the Enigmatic Spectre. The key is to focus on the other enemies, the Mysterious Spectres first, this causes the Enigmatic Spectre to succumb to Pressure. Channel your attacks on the lone Enigmatic Spectre while it’s under pressure. When the Enigmatic Spectre puts on its shields, go back to attacking the surrounding Spectres. Whittle them down until the cutscene stops the fight.

Helitrooper are fairly weak to Wind and suffer a large chunk of damage when they’re Staggered.
