In Leviathan DLC, on Despoina how do you get past the Brute attack and still pick up power cells from Cortez? I tried running all over the place to get to Cortez, but died as many times.

I am in my final push to get to Leviathan, just unable to get to Cortez.

I tried killing all the enemies from cover, but the waves never end.

Normally in these situations, there is a gun available that can help with the fight. But I have not found such gun, and the enemies are kicking me where it hurts.

So how to achieve my goal to get to the Leviathan?

I have stopped playing for now. It was too frustrating dealing with the wave after wave of enemies. – ヴァイシャリ Sep 9 '12 at 15:14
What class are you? It should be easy as an infiltrator or vanguard. Other classes may need to be more methodical. – ILMTitan Sep 9 '12 at 21:26

The key is to not focus on the enemies. The goal is to power the ship, not kill the enemies. As you've seen, the enemies never stop coming.

I got past this part by sprinting to the next power port whenever I got a new power cell from Cortez. If any enemies were in my way, I'd shoot them but other than that I would ignore any enemies since they take a long time to take down (especially the Brutes).

For me, it took 3 power cells to fully power the doors. I believe that the various ports can be reused, if needed.

Thanks for the advice. I am running from socket to socket. I picked up two power cells from Cortez. Added it to the socket. And am basically trying to keep the charge at 100%. Will let you know how it goes. – ヴァイシャリ Sep 10 '12 at 17:05
Actually, you just have to get the power to 100%. Once you've done that, the mech is powered up and you can proceed. – Adeese Sep 10 '12 at 18:28
Thanks. Worked finally. :-) – ヴァイシャリ Sep 11 '12 at 2:29
Glad you were able to get past the hard part. :) – Adeese Sep 11 '12 at 3:00
