Breeding Tek-Rexes for Gamma Boss fight with Mek

Hello,

our mini tribe has started breeding rexes to prepare for the Gamma boss-fight in Genesis.
But we're kind of wondering what stats we should be putting on our Tek Rexes?

Right now we're looking at the following options, based on various video's and discussions:

  • 30k health, the rest in melee
  • 40k health, the rest in melee

We will be using a Mek in the fight with the shield strategy, so we'd like to adjust our Tek Rexes to that approach.
A Squeakysaurus will also be part of the setup.

Tips, advice anyone?

 

Stats Input Received

  • 25k Health / 700% Melee , 80-ish Armor Saddles : 11 Rexes lost

Deduced Information

  • < 25k health is not sufficient
  • < 500% melee damage is not sufficient

Im not entirely sure, but if the VR mission in the patch notes is referring to the boss fight, u might not be able to use the mek anymore.


v309.4
Prevented Meks from being deployed in the VR Mission

Great...that complicates stuff a lot...
Not sure how to deal with this.
Does that mean we can deploy one outside and teleport it in ?

Today's results:

  • We reached the final phase pretty easily
  • The damage / amount of enemies becomes too much however.

We actually did a test afterwards with 20 Kentro's to test theory about their pack bonus and damage reflection : We lost several in the first phase already.
They simply are too slow in killing stuff, but did reach the final phase thanks to their veggy cakes.

Next test for us will be either getting mutations on our rexes, or attempt the fables Tickle Chicken Army™

I have tested Kentros, and if you command them well enough, none should die before the last stage. They are not adequate to fight Avatars! Either bring mounted Rexes or Theris for this task.

Meks cannot be deployed on this boss anymore (unless you try the cripod exploit, which is unreliable). Instead, breed good Feroxes and slap solid helmets on them.

Finally, forget Gamma. Beta is the same deal but with more boss HP. You should only try Gamma if you are not with adequate Pump-Action Shotguns to drain its life, but even so, it's not a good idea to face this boss without adequate shotguns, be it Gamma or Beta.

Tried with Therezino's and another Rex army. There's simply too much going on in the final phase, and with the restriction on no more mechs etc this fight is a joke.

you can complete it but with rexes 30k hp 700-800 melee most rexes will die the trick to this boss is you need foot soldiers with high speed good armor and a couple of tek rifles/good shotguns and never let your rexes or yourself go anywhere close to the middle play the outer wall

We're three people in full ascendent Flak and Tek gear. It only lasts so long against reapers and those drones.
At some point you just get swarmed really. 35k health rexes do last as long as the Therozino's do, but so far we can't get the boss down.
