Crossing is the thirty-eighth offline mission and the fourtieth online mission in Earth Defense Force 2025 and the fourty-first offline mission and the fourty-third online mission in Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair.

Objective Edit

2025: We have confirmed large enemy numbers emerging from tunnels in the mountain area. We must destroy them before they strike out. There appear to be three tunnel entrances. You can reach them by crossing the bridge from the mission start point. Be aware that Ravager combat troops are supporting the creatures. Before the bridge is sealed off, cross the valley and destroy the tunnel entrances.

4.1: We have confirmed large enemy numbers emerging from tunnels in the mountain area. We must destroy them before they strike! There appear to be three tunnel entrances, which can be reached by crossing the bridge from the mission start point. Be aware that Ravager combat troops are supporting the creatures. Before the bridge is sealed off, cross the valley and destroy the tunnel entrances!

Storyline Edit

Storm Team is on the left side of the bridge mentioned in the mission description, above the valley. HQ orders them to destroy the Tunnel Exits that can be found on the other side, with Hectors protecting it.

While they are fighting, for some reason Pale Team, the Wing Diver unit mentioned in the previous mission, starts reporting about a different mission on an open radio channel. HQ who is either oblivious or doesn't care about everyone listening in, then wishes them good luck.

Just when Storm Team is finishing off the remaining enemies, Pale Team reports that half of their forces is dead. After HQ's inquiring they explain that EDF has been lied to all this time and giant insects do actually fly.

4.1 Changes Edit

The mission now starts at the end of the long road leading up to the bridge.

Two E551 Gigantus tanks were added with a squad of Rangers supporting them. They move along the road and the tanks stop on top of the bridge while the Rangers do the smart thing and go to the other side instead of risking falling. Unfortunately if the bridge is destroyed before they reach it they still try to move as if it was still there and fall down.

The number of enemies was slightly decreased.

Strategy Edit

4.1 Edit

Bring a weapon against swarms of insects and high-damage weapon against the Hectors and Tunnel Exits.

Try to kill the Hectors as soon as you can then focus on the tunnels before the bugs can reach you. Be careful not to destroy the bridge, if you bring explosives, as NPC tanks can become useless and it will be harder to cross the valley if you don't bring a Wing Diver.

Trivia Edit

4.1 Edit

  • The picture on the missions selection screen shows two Hectors. The one in the back can be seen having a Spark Launcher on its right arm, however none of the Hectors in the mission use that weapon.
