Memory Lane

Memory Lane - Overview.jpg

Here is some information (and a few tips and strategies) for the Memory Lane Challenge. As always, different people will have different strategies. So, use this information, try some of these strategies if you want, or develop your own and see what works best. Using your best Survivors will usually give you the best chance at earning more stars, so work with what you have!!

Here’s an overview of some of my general Challenge and Guild Tips that discuss and show some of the strategies mentioned here that can help you get more stars. If you are looking for a guild, head over HERE.

Please share any strategies or videos in the comments!! Please don’t share videos that rely on Weekly Event Class Damage Bonuses (especially Hunter and Assaults) as those are only useful during those events, and are often misleading as to how to best beat a map. Thanks to everyone from the community and the Eh family for their contributions!

Please note that when you start getting to the repeat levels of difficulties, you can get an extra Tank or Armored Walker in the map. NG likes to make things more difficult!


Shine a Light

Shine a Light - Overview.PNG

Overview: Make your way to the exit while dealing with the Normal, Tank and Armored Walkers.

Potential Strategies: On this map you can utilize your best Ranged Survivors (overwatch works well to keep spawn waves low), or Melee and Scouts with Threat Reduction. Remember, you don’t need to kill all the Walkers, just reach the exit.

  • Potential Heroes to Use:
    • Abraham: More damage and health on your ranged survivors is helpful.
    • Sasha: Turning body shots into Charge Points can be useful on difficult levels.
    • Jesus: More damage and health on your melee survivors is helpful.
    • Michonne: If you use the Melee/Threat Reduction Strategy, Michonne can help improve the chances of Threat Reduction and Swift Strike!
    • Rosita: Although I prefer Abraham, Rosita can also be used to get more damage against a single Target.
    • Carol: If you are using all Scouts, Carol’s extra chance of a Critical Attack could be useful (her trait works with every class), though the chance of critical attacks becomes zero when the Walkers are 5 levels above your Survivor (Survivor Level + number of Pink Stars).

Spawn Locations: Walkers will spawn at the very top and very bottom of the map, along with on the left wall near where your Survivors start. Group your Survivors together when a Spawn Wave is about to happen so you can deal with Spawns much easier. Having a Hunter at the very top/bottom will give a Hunter the ability to shoot multiple Walkers.

There are 3 potential spawn locations on the left part of the map, so you need all 3 survivors to block the spawn (seen below).

Hershel’s Farm

Hershel's Farm.PNG

Overview: Kill all the Walkers.

Potential Strategies: Ranged Survivors are very helpful on this Map. Shooters are great for taking out the Tanks (especially with High Powered Trait and Sure Shot), as are Hunters for attacking multiple Walkers. Scouts with the Kingdom Spear and Pitchfork can be used in Overwatch so they can safely get an attack in from a safe distance. Utilize Overwatch early and don’t overextend yourself as Walkers can come from the shadows and attack you. Remember to wear your Stun Resistant Armor if you have it!

  • Potential Heroes to Use:
    • Abraham: More damage and health on your ranged survivors is helpful.
    • Dwight: Extra damage against Special Walkers (and Freemen) can be useful.
    • Rosita: Although I prefer Abraham, Rosita can also be used to get more damage against a single Target.
    • Sasha: Turning body shots into Charge Points can be useful on difficult levels.

Woodbury

Woodbury - Overview.PNG

Overview: Open the 3 crates while dealing with Walkers and Freemen.

Potential Strategies: As with any map with Freemen, try to use the Walkers to your advantage. Killing the Walkers closest to you is necessary, but try to let the Walkers on the other side of the map attack the Freemen. Letting Walkers spawn and attack the Freemen on the other side of the map is often useful, especially when the levels get difficult. If possible, separate your Survivors when dealing with the Warrior since they seem to not charge when they can’t attack multiple survivors with one attack.

As for Survivors, Shooters with High Powered are usually useful for dealing with Freemen (as well as Hunters and stunning them with the charged Assault attack). Bruisers are often useful against Freemen as you can usually stun them until the mission gets very difficult.

  • Potential Heroes to Use:
    • Abraham: More damage and health on your ranged survivors is helpful.
    • Sasha: Turning body shots into Charge Points can be useful on difficult levels.
    • Dwight: Extra damage against Special Walkers (and Freemen) can be useful.
    • Rosita: Although I prefer Abraham, Rosita can also be used to get more damage against a single Target.

Spawn Locations:

Spawn Blocks: All 4 spawn locations can be blocked with two survivors.

Terminus

Terminus - Overview.PNG

Overview: Open the fences to gain access to the crates that need opening while dealing with Special Walkers.

Potential Strategies: Ranged Survivors are your best bet so you can safely kill the Walkers from outside the fence. Scouts with the Kingdom Spear or Pitchfork can attack Walkers through the fence, but other Melee don’t do well since the Walkers don’t usually come right up to the fence, so you will have to engage them directly after opening the fences. One Assault is very useful so you can use a charged attack to stun all the Walkers that spawn in the middle section of the map.

  • Potential Heroes to Use:
    • Abraham: More damage and health on your ranged survivors is helpful.
    • Sasha: Turning body shots into Charge Points can be useful on difficult levels.
    • Dwight: Extra damage against Special Walkers (and Freemen) can be useful.

Spawn Locations:

There are usually 6 walkers in the top middle section with a full spawn.

Spawn Blocks:

You can block both of the spawns on the right or left side.

Not ideal, but if you haven’t opened the fence yet, it’s possible to block some of the spawns in the middle section, but try to line up all your survivors on top to keep all the walkers in front of you.

Killing Zone

Overview: Make your way to the exit while dealing with numerous normal Walkers and one Tank Walkers.

Potential Strategies: On this map you can utilize your best Ranged Survivors, or Melee and Scouts with Threat Reduction. You don’t need to kill all the Walkers, just reach the exit. Overwatch with your Ranged Survivors can help to keep spawns low, but when the levels get difficult, you’ll want to get to the exit as soon as possible.

  • Potential Heroes to Use:
    • Abraham: More damage and health on your ranged survivors is helpful.
    • Sasha: Turning body shots into Charge Points can be useful on difficult levels.
    • Jesus: More damage and health on your melee survivors is helpful.
    • Michonne: If you use the Melee/Threat Reduction Strategy, Michonne can help improve the chances of Threat Reduction and Swift Strike!
    • Rosita: Although I prefer Abraham, Rosita can also be used to get more damage against a single Target.
    • Carol: If you are using all Scouts, Carol’s extra chance of a Critical Attack could be useful (her trait works with every class), though the chance of critical attacks becomes zero when the Walkers are 5 levels above your Survivor (Survivor Level + number of Pink Stars).

Spawn Locations: You can’t block any of the spawns, but if you line up a Hunter on the top and/or bottom of the map, you can easily shoot multiple Walkers. These spawn points aren’t completely fixed, as the Walkers can spawn in various locations at the top or bottom of the map.

Hilltop

Hilltop - Overview.PNG

Overview: Kill all the Walkers.

Potential Strategies: Ranged Survivors are my preference on this map. A good strategy is to clear out either the left or right side of the map (or even the top section), then work your way to the section you just cleared out to create some distance between your survivors and the remaining Walkers. Remember to wear your Stun Resistant Armor if you have it!

  • Potential Heroes to Use:
    • Abraham: More damage and health on your ranged survivors is helpful.
    • Dwight: Extra damage against Special Walkers (and Freemen) can be useful.
    • Rosita: Although I prefer Abraham, Rosita can also be used to get more damage against a single Target.
    • Sasha:  Turning body shots into Charge Points can be useful on difficult levels.
