*This guide is specifically for the normal and prestige version of The Arms Dealer during the week of October 24-31 as modifiers change. This guide also provides the basic method to successfully complete The Arm Dealer Strike for the exotic shotgun, The Legend of Acrius.
Torrential Light – Players abilities recharges much faster. (~5 seconds cooldown for grenades so use them as soon as they are available)
Timewarp: Zero Hour – Mission timer can’t be extended.
Time: 16 mins on Prestige Mode; 20 mins on Normal Mode
Enemies: Cabal (Incendiors, and Honored Phalanx)
As soon as the screen loads, head left and toss grenades towards the group of Cabal. Take out the 2 shielded enemies with Void weapons and grenades and hack the terminal to the left of the group.
Enemies: Cabal (Incendiors, Psions, Legionary, Honored Phalanx, War Beasts, Unsanctioned Blaster, and Exiled Launcher)
After hacking the terminal, a door will open, head through it and prepare for a fight. There will be several enemies you must defeat. Take out the sniper Psions first then focus on the other enemies. After the enemies are clear, have 1 person pick up the round sphere and take it to the premarked location. Everyone else should run towards the lower area once there, avoid the obvious path and instead, head up the right side climbing up a ledge. The person with the charge should deposit it while getting cover fire by their teammates. Once the charge is deposited, eliminate the boss enemy with power weapons and anything available to do massive damage per second.
Enemies: Cabal (War Beasts, Psions, Legionary, Honored Phalanx, and Unsanctioned Blaster)
Once those boss enemies are done for, run up the path and inside the base. Bypass all the enemies you’ll find and take the entrance to your right. Continue running up the inclined interior of the base until you reach an open gate. Summon your sparrow and head north west towards a orange glow tunnel and a sloped piston. Climb the piston, summon your sparrow and bypass the enemies while heading left towards the base. Follow the only path inside until you see a giant tank.
Enemies: Cabal (Legionary, Honored Phalanx, and Unsanctioned Blaster)
On the right is a platform which must be hacked, be wary of the 3 enemies guarding it. Next, head straight, then make a left towards the red draped platform to climb it to hack the second terminal. This will spawn an elite enemy, Unsanctioned Blaster take him out and a large tank to progress the mission. Enter through the newly open door and follow the path until you reach the end.
Enemies: Cabal (Legionary, Honored Phalanx, Volcanic Scorpius, and Unsanctioned Blaster)
Open the door using the terminal on the right. (This takes about 20 seconds) The boss will temporarily be on an aircraft. He will retreat quickly so shoot him as quickly as you can. Have 1 person take the upper route while the other 2 take the lower route. Take out the turrets (Volcanic Scorpius) first then focus on the rest. At the end of the hanger will be a lift, eliminate the last enemies and prepare for the boss.
Enemies: Cabal (Legionary, Psions, Centurion, Honored Phalanx, and Volcanic Scorpius)
Weak Points: Head
While the lift ascends you have time to shoot the boss while he does the same thing. Head towards the left ledge and take out more of those turrets (Volcanic Scorpius). Once the boss’s health has gone down by 1/3, he will retreat and summon mob enemies. Take them out and have someone grab solar charge (sphere) and deposit it in the proper location. The boss will be able to be damage once more. Repeat taking out the turrets, damaging the boss, picking and depositing the solar charge. It shouldn’t take long to defeat Bracus Zahn.
