Pencilneck – composed of Cargo, Tension, Flatline – this operation starts showcasing some of the more dangerous defenses such as mass Rocket Launchers and the dreaded Shock Launcher.
- First eliminate the Boom Cannons on the left side with Heavy/Zooka
- Then, Warrior Rush with Smoke Screen and Shock Bombs to destroy the Rocket Launchers and Sniper Towers if possible.
- Attack the left side with Heavy/Zooka to destroy the cannons
- Use Shock Bombs rather than artillery and barrage as your troop damage is far greater.
- Once the cannons and sniper tower are eliminated, another Heavy/Zooka crew can destroy the Power Core.
- Destroy the Shock Launcher. As long as it remains active, attacks to the back of the base or Rocket Launchers may end poorly.
- Destroy the group of 9 Rocket Launchers. As long as these are active, they will repel almost any attack to the Power Core.
- Warriors and shock bombs can be used to great effect here since the close attack range renders the Rocket Launchers unable to attack.
