    This isn’t as bad as you might think. In fact, it’s the easiest challenge so far.
    All of the enemies are equipped with shields. They disappear once you get close to them.

    My group did this with


    Roadhog is good cause he has his hook attack and can heal himself. Hook attack works great for snipers that are out of reach. Snipers can be taken out efficiently with Roadhog

    Reaper is good for close range headshots. Can dispose enemies quickly and his ultimate works extremely well in taken out large groups.

    Dva is a surprise addition. She has a lot of health and is great for close range and using her ultimate to also take out groups of troopers and enforcers.

    Mercy is the best healer for this. As Mercy you want to heal pretty much 95% of the time and take out the odd enemy here and there. Her ultimate is great for healing the rest of the group in dire need.

    Most of this is pretty straight forward. Take out enemies, heal your group yada yada yada.

    Disposing of the heavys is actually pretty simple. When you arrive at the house halfway through. You want to bring the heavy into the building and up the stairs like your legendary play through training him around the building.

    But, there’s a very easy way to take him out quickly. Once he reaches the stairs and starts to make is way up. (Make sure everyone here as their ultimate ready) Once Mercy pops her ultimate for constant healing. Everyone needs to activate their ult all at once doing a large amount of damage to the Heavy. If pulled off right you should drop the Heavys’ health around 80-85 percent. Everyone’s Ults should be gone and mercy still healing only leaving you with a few more shots to take him out.

    Do this exact same method once you reach the final heavy. Works very effectively and efficiently. Just make sure to dispose of all other enemies and make sure the heavy is by himself before everyone uses their ults. Our group got this on the first try without any issues.

    Hope this helps!

    Players can only do damage to enemies that are in close proximity to them.

    Hero selection: All

    Roadhog is absolutely needed here to make dealing with the snipers easier, and while you have to be close to do damage it's actually easier done than said. And no I didn't mess up that saying, as long as any one person is near an enemy everyone can do damage to him no matter the distance, making rushing characters VERY good for this.

    Wreckingball, Roadhog, Reaper, Tracer, Moira, Doomfist, Junkrat, any strong CQ character will work wonders. Avoid snipers or medium to long range characters as you'll be useless to your team for the most part.

    The strategy here is simple: Rush. Rush everything. Including the enemy tanks. With Roadhog and Wreckingball it's as simple as a Moira healing them while they destroy whatever it is they're shooting at and a Reaper is just the icing on the cake. Snipers are going to be the only issue you come across and as long as Roadhog hooks them then nothing in the mission will stop you getting the easy 15g.

    If you would like help for this challenge and don't have anyone to do this with message me on Xbox and me and some discord friends will happily take you through.

    My teams setup:
    Wreckingball, Moira, Roadhog, Reaper.
