Weekly Challenges centered around explosives are never bad challenges. That is, until you realize your only form of protection is the explosives you’re throwing. Enter Boom Go Dynamite, one of the more creative Orcs Must Die! 2 challenge maps.
This challenge is a bit longer since you’ll have to wade through twelve whole waves of angry, stupid orcs. The big problem with this map is that there are four distinct routes the orcs can take to ruin your day. Without Barricades to help ease the pain, you have to rely on Boom Barrels and Boom Barrel Dispensers to save the day. Thankfully the Wind Belt pairs with them perfectly.
The best piece of advice I can give about this challenge is to spread the Boom Barrels around. Put them where you think you’ll need them eventually and then throw a Decoy somewhere that serves as the bottleneck. It’s not too difficult once you understand what routes each wave of orcs takes, but it will take some practice to five-skull this bad boy.
It’s tough, it’s fun, but more importantly, it’s challenging and that’s what we’re here for. C’mon back next week for another round and be sure to tell us if you’ve come up with a better strategy! See you next week.
