One of the easiest challenges. Burstone Bombs is strongly recommended, and if it continues to give you trouble, Shrapnel Charges will make it basically effortless.

The only complication is the two groups of Squirts which move from side to side. Either catch them when they pause on the corners or track their timing to hit them with other large groups as they pass through the center.

Weapon Pick Lines[]

  • Cael Hammer : With that mortar and a hammer, he's like a one-man demolition squad.
  • Fang Repeater : Kid's ready to hit them fast and hit them hard.
  • Breaker's Bow : Sometimes arrows ain't enough, so Kid packs something bigger, just in case.
  • War Machete : Walk by a Kid with a machete and a mortar, you just keep on walking.
  • Scrap Musket : That's some heavy duty hardware. Not exactly the most delicate pairing.
  • Dueling Pistols : With all that firepower, Kid looks like he's ready to raid a fort.
  • Brusher's Pike : A pike and a galleon mortar? Now that's some terror from the high seas.
  • Army Carbine : Kid ain't taking chances, takes all the firepower he can carry.
  • Fire Bellows : Well if you can't burn it, you can always blow it to Mother on high, right?
  • Calamity Cannon : OK, now that's just plain overkill. I mean, come on.
