Let me start with this - This is best used in conjunction with a Cannoneer to clear the target, either your own or pair up with a player that only has 1 or 2 Cannoneers and make everyone's day. You only need one of each to clear the entire target. IF you can't do this and are stuck with just one Ironclad and can not kill the Launcher turrets, keep in mind you can only do this to one side. Additionally, this allows someone else to come into the target without completely screwing them. If you can't clear behind you, you can only do this on one side as the Launchers block you from doing both sides with one Ironclad. (Of note: Disturbed mentioned to me that a Centurion or Punisher can also out-range and clear out the Launcher turrets. Thanks!)
So let's start with some context. TSM made a spectacular video for farming the 107's with a single Ironclad and Cannoneer. This is the nexus of this idea because... well, because I'm lazy, cheap and abysmally curious. You can watch this pure brilliance here:
Of note, you only need the Cannoneer to clear the Launcher turrets.
So, curiosity got the better of me. What if... what if I came in with a single regular old Ironclad, got my bloodthirst in the corral and came out and looped around that first turret?
(Interesting when compared to a full B set, yea?)
That all said, with as many Ironclad tokens in this raid, this might be a quick and dirty way to crank out some points for some people. Edit:Andrew (Admin on TFC) and I also just tested our old school Arb Punishers- they can outrange the launchers as well so you can kill the entire 107 for 2+ million points even!! One Ironclad built and ranked to grind. You have 3 days to grind. Good luck!!
