It usually doesn’t require rocket science to figure out the best ways to slaughter orcs, but sometimes… sometimes it does. This week’s Orcs Must Die! 2 Weekly Challenge isn’t one of those times, but nevertheless you’re thrust into a very interesting predicament with an assortment of traps you wouldn’t usually take into the mix. It’s not especially difficult, which is probably why it’s called Not Rocket Science.
This challenge takes place on a very easy to deal with level, but it’s a real lengthy one. Expect to spend at least 20 minutes fighting through the tireless horde. At first glance, it seems like a tricky situation to deal with, but as usual, Barricades are present to help save the day. Maintain a decent killbox on the main pathway with them and make sure to block off the back route to bottleneck the other orcs.
Yes, yes, it’s the usual style, but you’ve got to be aware of what’s going on! Throwing down Haymakers makes short work of the fliers but if you’re going to use them elsewhere, beware of them sometimes flinging orcs past your other traps. That’s exactly what happened to me and I was none too happy about it!
C’mon back next week for another round of fine orc killing! Yeah, you know the deal.
