Survival Guide - Dust Settles: Focus Path Overview
There are three focus paths in this game. These are areas of concentration
that your camp will be able to choose from at different points during the game.
You can choose to take your camp down the research
heavy Nuke path, the battle
heavy Military path, or the gold
heavy Economy path. Once you choose a path
and build the related focus building,
you will not be able to turn back, so choose carefully. Don't wait too long,
though, as these are a major way to earn score during the mid and late game.
Each path requires a great deal of research
to open the ability to construct the focus building for that path.
Each focus path has its own way of increasing your camp's score.
The Military Path: If you choose to follow this path, you will get a boost in the amount of victory score you can win during battle and will have the ability to open and construct mechs. Light mechs will take 1 unit of titanium and give 1 point. Medium mechs will take 2 units of titanium and will give 2 points. Heavy mechs will take 3 units of titanium and will give 5 points. Mechs must be stored in lots and produced through garages.
The Economy Path: This path allows your camp to make pallets of gold bars. Each pallet will only get you 2 points, but will only take 100 workers and 1 unit of gold to construct each turn.
Once you have chosen a focus path, you will gain the abilities associated with
that path and will gain new abilities for your special
ops. These new ops lvl 3 missions will allow you to do directed damage to
people on the same focus path that you are on and people on other paths. Your
ops will be able to sabotage nukes, gold stores, and armories,
hangers, and lots.
Nukes are also vulnerable to cruise missiles,
though they can install patriot missiles for defense against these.
You will be able to open all three focus buildings, but you will only be able
to construct one. Once you
have constructed a focus building, you cannot demolish it. Focus buildings
will be constructed through the Construct page just like any other building.
