How to beat the Gears Tactics Brumak boss:

  • First, you’ll want to make sure that your squad is spread out around the Brumak. You do not want to group together.
  • Use your soldiers to shoot at the three tanks located on the Brumak’s back.
  • Each time you hit a tank, the Brumak will turn around to block your fire. Switch to a soldier with a clear view of the tanks and fire again.
  • Keep switching between soldiers to hit the tanks as much as possible.
  • If a character becomes low on health, either heal or move away from the Brumak. This boss focuses on the soldiers closest to it, so keep your fully healed characters near it as a distraction.
  • Avoid the rockets by moving out of the red zones. Deal with minor enemies by closing E-Holes as quickly as possible.
  • Keep hitting the tanks with gunfire and you’ll soon destroy the Brumak.
  • Bonus: On tougher difficulties, aiming for the Brumak’s secondary guns can be a big help in surviving more turns over time.

Now get out there and defeat that Brumak.
