Iron Marines Cheats and Tips
1. Find the Marine Icon if you want to Deploy Additional Units
Noticed the squad cap icon at the upper-left corner of the screen? Well, it shows how many units you can deploy. When a mission starts, you can deploy one unit, be it a team of snipers or grunts or a mecha, provided you have adequate resources (“etherwatts”).
Just keep exploring the planet until you stumble upon a tiny holographic image of a marine. Move your commander or any unit close to the marine icon and wait for a few seconds. You will get an extra command point for launching a unit.
2. How to Make Proper Use of Sniper Squads
Make sure you deploy snipers to support your hero and troops. Snipers have long range rifles and can easily take out incoming enemies from a distance. They will begin shooting when aliens come within their range. You can position snipers somewhere safe so that enemies don’t attack them first. While they are pretty tough, a large group of enemies can easily eliminate them.
Place snipers behind your units to take care of incoming enemies, but make sure your hero and troops don’t block their view. Weaker units will be instantly killed by snipers making it easier for your hero, mecha and other units to take out the rest. Bear in mind that obstacles will block their field of view and they won’t be able to shoot at enemies, so keep them in areas where mountains or other objects don’t block direct attacks.
