Everybody loves gladiators. That is, everybody except for orcs. The newest addition to the Orcs Must Die! 2 Weekly Challenge , The Gladiator, brings us right into the thick of it.
This week’s map follows the style of some of the previous scenarios in which trap usage is at a minimum. Of course, being centered around melee combat, the change is welcome and you do get to use both the Decoy and Bear Trap in case things get too dicey. As for your other selections, all minions are available as well as the Bladestaff and Dwarven Hammer. There’s a couple trinkets sprinkled in for good measure too, but you don’t have to use them.
The key to success in this map is to make sure you can take care of those dastardly Kobolds. After a couple of rounds they start showing up and if you haven’t put a few archers down… well, just make sure you do it! I’ve found that putting about four on the base level does the trick just fine.
Thanks for stopping in for another look at the weekly challenge. Be sure to come back next week for another round!
