Metal Slug Defense Daily Boss Challenge

In the Metal Slug Defense v1.3.0, new missions and units are introduced. Furthermore, the area of Daily Boss is opened. Meaning, it looks like an Emergency Area, but the areas of Daily Boss differ depending on the "day of the week". If you have successfully rescued all the POW (Prisoners of the War), you would be able to unlock more units.

Saturday BOSS (France Northern)


The first "day of the week" (during the update) happens to be on Friday. But unfortunately i have missed the POW rescue. Will update here ASAP next week.

Meanwhile, I will update the table below after I have managed to defeat the daily Boss stages and rescue all the POW in the Metal Slug Defense. Your feedback is highly appreciated.

*Sometimes, I don't remember what are the exact hidden conditions required that I met with in order to save the POW. Here I would just write down whatever approaches from the memory.

  • Speed
  • Use only Trevors
  • No AP buildup

Sunday
(Saudi Arabia)

  • Use only Trevors 
  • Basic Unit
(Eris) -
Samurai Planes will be available

Eris
Samurai Planes??!! (Typo?)
2
  • One unit per soldier type
  • No Casualties
  • Minimum Units (3 for me)
3
  • Rank S?
  • No Sandbag
  • No more than 1 unit per type other than Hopper Mecha?
  • Minimum soldier type? (4 for me)

*Often, minimum casualties could be achieved through summoning lesser low-HP units, while using more high-HP units. (OR use sandbag strategically if you haven't obtained those high-HP units yet)
*I found that Leona is an awesome Melee unit. She helps me strike faster in the France Northern 3rd stage BOSS (avoid critical attack while making a counter attack!). You may experience this in the Metal Slug Defense New Missions.
*In the Sunday Saudi Arabia Boss area, i have to use Hopper Mecha to clear the stages so far.
*Sorry, no details for the Friday Challenge. I rescued 7 POWs last week, without jotting down the details. But i think the similar conditions apply, as stated in the other post.

    1. No prob. Do you mean both stages 1 and 2?

    2. By the way, when using Trevors, sometimes i try not activating others such as his skills or Metal Slug Attack.

    3. Maybe there is also a speed factor...by the way I did it :D

  2. what does minimum casualties mean?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. o. it means you have lesser soldiers to get sacrificed in the battle.
      Normally, it can be achieved by using the soldiers with the higher HP. (and unleash the skills whenever possible)

    2. Thank you, on Sunday

    1. ok... do you ensure that the tank doesn't come out before you destroy the portal?

      Delete
    2. What do you mean with tank? I never saw any tank in this stage, only the big crab :(

      Delete
    3. is it? Too bad i am only able to verify this next week.
      A big crab for stage 1?
      Anyway, the blue soldiers are meant to reach and destroy the portal faster before the boss comes out...
      (i may be wrong...)

    4. I'll try again next week, no problem. Your help is already greatly appreciated :D :D :D :D

    1. Hopper Mecha is the answer :)
      Summon Hopper Mecha as much as possible.

      Meanwhile, remember to upgrade your HOME base HP. (to withstand more attack)

      Delete
    2. FYI, Hopper Mecha can be unlocked after playing the Emergency
      Area (World 1 North Asia North East)

  8. Is Trevor a required unit to unlock most of these pows? I haven't spent any medals yet as I'm very limited to medals.

    Currently, I am stuck on Thursday (South Africa) Stage 3 where I keep getting overwhelmed by the 3 Juniper Kings. I can't summon anything or push them back without my units dying in one laser. I am using the marco, tarma, fio, eri, di-cokka tank, 3 ton truck, SV001, SV Camel, ostrich slug.

    1. The reason i use Trevor is that he can fulfill multiple conditions at the same time, in my post "how to save POWs" . Generally, i would use Trevor as the first test, while trying not to "Upgrade AP Buildup, activate skills, activate Metal Slug attack, etc". It works for me so far.

      In the Thursday Stage 3, i would recommend using Leona instead (another awesome unit). You can defeat 3 Juniper Kings with only several Leona (around 5+)! The idea is to use her critical skill before the Juniper King casts the laser attack. (if you play the New Missions, you will experience this.)

      I would say that your deck is not that strong for the South Africa Boss challenge. Those marco, tarma, fio , eri are just basic units... 3 ton truck also cannot cause much damage to the enemy... SV camel and ostrich slug have relatively lower HP. (Did you just start playing this game? )

      Perhaps you should use the units with higher HP. You will gain more medals after unlocking more POW or the completing the New Missions :)


      Delete
    2. Yes, I am relatively new to the game. I just started 5 days ago. I already unlocked all of world 1, I got most of my POW abilities for world 2, but not all 100% yet. The thing is that I only have 400 medals, so buying leona and trevor is already 250. Which units do you recommend for higher HP than my basic deck?

      Delete
    3. I see. You are quite fast actually.

      Anyway, i would recommend just buying Leona and Trevor. Both of them are awesome enough :)

      Most of my units with the higher HP are unlocked through the POW rescue, such as the Di-Cokka, Elephant Slug, Nop-03 Sarubia. Together with the original SV-001, i think these troops are enough to handle all the World maps. (It might be a different story to play Wifi PvP...)

      Delete
    4. haha, i just kept reading your POW guides to make sure I have an easier and quicker chance saving POWs. Alright, I'll start with those two. What about the giant catepiller and samurai tank? I haven't seen those in the store yet. When do I unlock those?

      I have most of those tanks except for Elephant Slug, so that'll be my next goal. As for PvP, is there like a list of units that people reviewed to see which one is good or not to invest in? Or is that in your next blog post about units? Thanks for the tips so far! They're very helpful

      Delete
    5. First, your feedback is very much appreciated :)

      Regarding the giant caterpillar and the samurai tank, not quite sure but i guess they would be available in the shop after you have defeated the 2 areas in the World 3.

      You are posing a good question here. Due to unstable network, so far i couldn't have much achievement in the PvP mode. And be honest, my Win Loss ratio is like 2:1. The thing is, gaining medals through PvP mode in order to purchase and verify the ideals units for this mode is kind of time-consuming.

      Perhaps i should open the post for open discussion or something. At the time of writing, maybe the useful information that i could provide is that, the Samurai Tank is not bad for PvP. (Due to the low AP cost and fast production). My Leona experiences a latency and her critical attack couldn't serve much...

      Will talk more about this in the new post soon :)

  9. On Friday:
    -I rescued 1 pow with multiple trevor, leona, nadia, sv-001, hopper mecha and metal claw + ap max and 1 metal slug attack
    -I try another pow with only mechanical units, (sv-001, hopper mecha, metal claw and DI-cokka + ap and 1 metal slug attack...

  12. I need some help on Saudi Arabia (Sunday); I do not have Hopper Mecha, but I do have Leona. Using Tarma to take out Abbas, I send in Leona immediately after and her skill to avoid the explosions. After that, I can repeat Leona, add Slugs, summon Madoka, etc. But I cannot get that last POW!

  13. Hi Edward!
    On Monday what do you mean with "No walking soldiers"?
    -Only flying units (argh, that could be troublesome)
    -only machine and flying unit (difficult, but I can do it)
    -other?

    I saved 3/4 Pows and I NEEEEEEED fat marco XD

    1. For example, the SV-001, Di-Cokka, Elephant Slug, Nop-03 Sarubia.
      (i think Samurai Tank is fine too). If not mistaken, i do not use any walking soldier such as Marco, Tarma, Leona, Trevor.... :)

  19. Hate to tell you this, but POW unlocking is Entirely Random. There are no conditions that effect it at all, as far as I can tell, other than one. The Radio Item that can be brought (or collected occasionally via daily rewards and such), will automatically force a POW to be unlocked. If there were set conditions for unlocking them, then the item would be a bit too game breaking surely.
    You can play the same mission over and over, the same way every time, and suddenly unlock 2 POWs, with no change in strategy. The point is, the game is trying to force you to buy the radio item, or a sortie point refill, so that you end up sending real money on additional medals, as is the Freemium marketing plan in almost every Freemium title.
    That is why they don't list conditions for unlocking, there are none.

    1. It is perfectly fine if you don't agree with this. Let other players to decide.

      I personally will avoid myself from spending on game, such that i am used to go all ways to figure out the potentially hidden 'features' in any game.

      Here are just my observations that could possibly boost the POW saving. You may still be able to save the pow without following this. But i would say it might require more attempts.

  20. To unlock Friday (Russia) Pow's on second and third stage I used:
    Only Ralf without raising ap production. When I got the oportunity I started raising up ap prod and summoned another Ralf, used its special power and got 2 pow's at the second stage with this. I believe you can use Ralf, Clark, Trevor or Nadia for this.

    At the thir stage I did the same and after raising ap I summoned Allen O'Neil and got another pow.
