Mako Reactor Materias Fire Materia Fire materia is possibly one of the best materias currently in the map, the best places to use them are during holds, or after holds open to slow zombies down and give slower teammates more time. Most used locations : - During the superior door hold, use it either when zombies are attacking the hold or after it opens, if needed, wait there so all zombies get on fire. - When crossing the bridge, near the corner, it is very hard to hold the bridge with a rush of fast running zombies, so slow them down if your fire materia has recharged. - If you are in the elevator it's good to use it since you will have some time to recharge after it, since you won't see zombies until after you die, probably. - (On hard or X-Treme) Use the fire materia on the boss if you have less than 20 people, or atleast 2-3 people who are using snipers or doing nothing, if that isn't the case, use it on the zombie cage to slow them down for slower teammates. - Some experienced players might prefer to wait with the person who has earth on top of the pipes to put them on fire, for an increased slowing effect. - The last room, obvious shit. (If needed, drop your fire on the ground so even patient zombies get on fire.) Ice Materia Ice materia is one of the weaker materias compared to some others, but when used right, it can slow zombies down a fair bit. Most used locations : - If people are holding the tunnel, go there and use it so that they can escape with no zombies being right on their tail. - The room after the superior door is a great way to use ice materias so people that didn't notice the door opened have some time to escape. - The bridge, same as fire. - After going down the elevator, you wait there with earth and use ice before you think they break through, incase the person with earth is abit slow and uses it too late. Or if you don't even have earth at all. - Use ice when you are going into the reactor room for people that fall off. - Ice the zombie cage. - The end room, in some cases this is the best materia there. Healing Materia Healing materia is only of a good use when having level 0, or level 2 heal, the 1st level is practically useless. Locations where you should heal: - At the first, superior door hold. - when zombies are breaking through a hold (only level 2) - In the elevator - When you're at the boss point. - Back in the elevator when going up. Wind Materia Wind materia is AMAZING, if used right it can guarantee a win. Most used locations : - At the start, it really doesn't matter where aslong as you don't push zombies into humans. - At the bridge, it's really nice to push the zombies back regardless of the level. - To protect the elevator. (Before it goes down) - Before the boss arrives to slow the zombies down and stop them from getting humans. - At the end room, if you're level 2 wind, wait till the door opens and drop your wind while it is activated to ensure zombies getting slowed down. Electro Materia Electro requires the least skill of all materias, get it if you aren't *pro* with materias. It can have 1 to 3 charges and will only regenerate when all charges are used. Use it where?: - Anywhere you like, anywhere near the electro burst fields the zombies get the speed like they are on fire, so use them if you need to buy humans more time. Earth Materia This materia is a MUST, it is possibly the best materia other than ultima, maybe even better! Spots you MUST save it for : - After the 10 second door opens (After the superior door) - When you are going DOWN the elevator, if you are down you wait with earth near the bottom of the elevator, use it after the top vent breaks. - At the tunnel leading to the reactor, if you used earth late you will have to use it there. - On the top of the pipes after the boss fight. - On the elevator or vent, listen to what the team suggests. Gravity Materia This is what you can use when earth wasn't taken or died. Spots you should use it : - All spots of using earth - When you DO have earth the only spot you should use it is on the jail after the boss fight, to buy slower people more time. Ultima materia What can I say, slays all zombies, however tactics can differ in wether you are on extreme or hard. Spots on Hard : -When the boss is coming (If theres less than 5 people) -The elevator, when it is halfway (Count to 5 after it started going up and then use it) When this is done, it is prefered that the person carrying ultima helps with the buttons as he doesn't have a materia anymore. Spots on Extreme : - At the boss, when theres less than 8 people. - At the final room, activate it when it says 60 seconds left and THROW IT ON THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM ( This is CRITICAL) As zombies can just go out and back in after the ultima blew, if you drop it more zombies will die and zombies have to retreat further to not get blown up. How to get higher level materia Higher level materia is easy, everytime you pick up an upgrade based materia your magic level will increase and your materia will upgrade one more. Tricks -At the 2nd hold after the superior door you should stand on the box and jump OVER the door as it is opening, this will get you up front of other humans by 2 seconds, and that's 2 seconds less they have to fend off zombies. -If you have 225 health from someone with ++ heal, JUMP DOWN from the pipes when you're near the ladder and save valuable time. Any other item guides on maps can be posted here, but since this is the one that probably needs it the most, I've made this one. Posted by kaemon, the locations of the materias.
