You've you have glided across the gap, you will see a sea of bandits. You will notice a bar on your screen that will fill up as you kill the bandits.
In order to proceed to Sabetha, the final boss, you will need to kill enough bandits to fill this bar.
Typically, you will first kill a large group of bandits at the bottom of the ramp. Once these have been cleared, you can make your way up the ramp to the very top. Once here, you will kill another group of bandits.
During this pre-event, you will encounter a new mechanic: Sapper Bombs.
These are a Ground-targeted skill that you can throw with your "Special Action Key". Make sure you have this key bound, you can find it in your control options.
Why are Sapper Bombs even important? Well, you need to use them to launch people up into the air from launch pads.
You will encounter a launch pad after you have killed the bandits at the top of the ramp. Use a Sapper Bomb to launch your squad across the canyon. On the otherside, you have a few more bandits to kill before you have finished the pre-event.
There are a few things that you need to plan first though!
During the fight, cannons will become active every 30 seconds around the arena. They follow a strict pattern that never changes. You can destroy these cannons by being launched from a launch pad with a Sapper Bomb. Once you arrive at the cannon, you can just DPS it down as they have very little health. Once the cannon is dead, you can glide back down to the main platform.
Cannons spawns every 30 seconds at xx:30 and xx:00. Sapper Bombs will come when the four bandits spawn at xx:35 and xx:05.
spawns every 15 seconds and will explode after three seconds. After Sabetha has reached 50% health, you will get two mechanics at the same time. Make sure you don't have anyone else inside the AoE when the timer runs out!
Keep out of the squad. Make sure you have someone designated to kite it!
Sabetha will use her Flame Wall every 45 seconds and will spin, on the spot, for 360 degrees in an anti-clockwise manner. You can't Dodge, Evade or block this! Just out run it or, be the smart guy, and move slightly clockwise from its spawn point.
Keep kicking off those Heavy Bombs! Heavy Bombs spawn when Sabetha has teleported off the platform. This means that you will need to keep an eye out for them when she teleports off the platform at 75%, 50% and 25% health.
You can easily die to the Flame Wall when you are trying to go for your cannon. Take a second to think about when the last Flame Wall was and if you have enough time to get to your cannon. Remember to also take a look before you fly back down from the cannon. Make sure Flame Wall isn't active!
can easily wipe a squad. Make sure to bring it well out of the squad before it times out! Take care that you don't kill your kiter!
Dying to one of the mechanics from the Bandit Champions. You need to remember three mechanics from these guys: , and . You can just move behind Kernan and Karde for their attacks and you need to quickly break Knuckles to interrupt his .
