TLDR: Mortar, Fire Bellows. Roll, use fire, roll, use mortar, rinse & repeat! ;)

Access this particular dream by selecting the Pipe in the Bastion. It appears near the beginning of the story, after completing Cinderblock Fort, and sits just south of the Monument.
It consists of 20 waves of mostly Windbags (many variants) and Security Turrets.

First off, do this on your 2nd playthrough in Score Attack Mode since that's when you should be worrying about maxing out your level and weapons anyways.
You should be at least lvl 7 before you try this. It's possible earlier, but why torture yourself.

Before I begin, let me preface with this: I've had some questions asked about why I haven't incorporated tips for every single wave (Reflection) or why I have similar solutions for each dream. The reason for this is that you use the same exact method to deal with almost every enemy in the game when using the loadout below (exclusions will be listed in Tips section). Slow them with fire and shoot a mortar at them. toast
I will provide a few specific tips below for particularly harmful enemies/rounds if deemed necessary or if people comment with questions about specific waves.


Weapons
Galleon Mortar
- Rapid Bombs
- Target System
- High-Explosive Charges
- Dampened Tubing
- Immunity to Bomb Damage (The most important)

Fire Bellows
- Sustainable Fuel
- Napalm Reservoir
- Modified Intake (THE most important tool you'll have. This slows down foes dramatically which makes fast moving enemies much easier to deal with using the Galleon Mortar)
- Contoured Grip OR Shielded Grip (Whichever you prefer)
- Industrial Furnace (Important for range purposes. And since you have the Napalm Resevoir and Modified Intake, just hit them a bit, then roll and use the G. Mortar to finish them off)

Distillery drinks
(I will list the 7 most important then options for 8,9, and 10) :
1) Leechade (THE most important since enemies won't drop health tonics with all idols on)
2) Bastion Bourbon
3) Black Rye
4) Lifewine (You have no idea how useful this is. I was skeptical of it at first but it's literally a lifesaver)
5) Bull Brandy OR Cham-Pain if you don't mind the side-effect
6) Hearty Punch
7) Werewhiskey (This is really important if you still have a few Reflections left but you're out of health tonics. You start doing massive damage at low health which helps you gain back health really fast with Leechade)
8) Bull Brandy OR Cham-Pain (whichever you didn't choose before)
9) Whale Ale
10) Graver Gimlet

Secret Skill
Turret Surprise
(This is extremely useful because besides damaging enemies it also serves as a great distraction and it lasts for a long while if you can help it keep alive. Also, if you've failed a specific round (Reflection) multiple times and find it to be the hardest one, just drop down 2 turrets instead of one)

Tips
Dream Specific:
- Use the Sky Bridges in the corners of the map to avoid enemies that get too close. You have a lot of control over where you land when using these so move in mid-air. These are particularly useful against the spinning Gasfellas to keep your distance from them.
- Try to quickly take out the adult Gasfellas that create holes in the ground. Those holes will mess you up in later rounds.

General:
-Roll......a lot.
-Use cover. All dreams have a little cover, some more than others. Sit behind it and use your mortar if you can.
-Try to use your Fire Bellows for like half a second to slow down fast moving enemies, then roll out of the way and drop a mortar on their face.
-For squirts, peckers, and stinkeyes, just spray flames all over the places then roll far away and repeat. Don't try to target one individually, your Napalm Reservoir will work it's magic on them over time.

One last tip that can be a huge game changer but is time consuming and/or tricky to pull off:
If you're not at level 10 yet and you're having a very difficult time with a certain dream, get yourself somewhat close to lvling up then enter the dream. If you time it right and can lvl up somewhere near the last 7 reflections or so, then all your health, health tonics, and black tonics will all be restored. This is especially useful for this dream since it is 30 Reflections instead of 20.
