0 comments by Geopelia666 on Jul 5th, 2013

After clearing EXTREME 25+ times... I noticed something; I only managed to get a single soldier with a S3 stat; the rest where S2s and less...

Now... I read on a forum somewhere that on hard mode; without any "BAIT" soldiers, there is a 0.01% chance of finding a soldier with a S3 stat. Hmm... One bait soldier + Easy = 3 S3 soldiers in the space of 15 minutes!!! SMG, Sniper and Trap were the S3 stats on the three different soldiers. I can only call this blind luck. However; recruiting a soldier who drops magazines/ga ko toys or chaff grenades apparently increases the chance of finding a S3 soldier. On one of my EASY play through I had recruited a chaff grenade dropping soldier...

Furthermore; ensure none of your spy units have the "SPY" ability as it will weaken your enemies and if you're looking for S3 soldiers you'll want their health/stamina as high as possible. Furthermore; ensure you have NO medical team members at all! I'm not sure about the technical team; I have a full team of arms specialists; expands number of rounds that can be carried in a single weapon "stack". E.g. AK47 - 330 rounds can be carried with a single AK47. :) Having anyone in your medical will decrease the chance of S3, SPY ability wielding troops = less chance of S3. If you have technical team soldiers then make sure they are just arm specialists (ammo capacities increase) and nothing else.

Use a soldier with headhunter and look out for the soldiers with any red above their heads; you can have 1,2 and 3 star soldiers with S3 stats so be on the look out for them! Some soldiers are skilled at more than one thing so keep looking at the soldiers and if they have more skills the icons (knives/shotguns...etc) will cycle through.

Have at least one bait soldier in your sneaking team otherwise you'll have much less chance of finding a S3 stat soldier. I suggest you use a headhunter with high health and stamina (sprint recommended too) to locate the s3 soldiers and recruit them while having the other 3 members with the bait skill to increase chance of stronger enemies.

Another factor to be considered; codename. The better the codename; the better the chance of high ranking soldiers; at the very least (with no baits); on extreme with a soldier bearing the FOXHOUND codename; at least 1 S3 stat soldier will be encountered. I have found the 3 mentioned S3 soldiers on easy with the meager title of HOUND or DOBERMAN (don't remember) with only 1 bait soldier. Just keep a lookout, follow the above advice and hopefully you'll find the soldier of your dreams :)

On a further note: If you want to find Ocelot soldiers; they DO spawn in extreme although they are EXTREMELY RARE! Many people state you can only find them online or via AP scan. I have found a male ocelot soldier once after 25+ extreme throughways and I was using 3 baits + 1 headhunter. Good luck finding one with S3 stat ;)

Thanks for reading; if you got any corrections/suggestions I will look into them. I hope you find a S3 soldier but remember... Try not to trigger alerts... Stronger enemies = more pwnage! XD

Testing a theory at the moment; magazine dropping soldiers have good health... Also; chaff dropping soldiers not only increase the chance of S3/better soldiers but also are guaranteed to be good in at least one skill (cqc/shotgun...etc.).

Update: Found two S3 ranked soldiers on Normal mode with no baits or magazine/chaff/ga ko toy dropping soldiers. Logic dictates that I'm either very lucky or the system is broken in the EU version? Anyone else encounter this?
