after 70h trying.. i finally got 00:43:36 witch isnt still enoug.. im using blade + first boss weapon mostly (i hate second + 3rd bosses weapon also) where do i need to stand after the first wave to get that annyoing robot Charge at me ? 70% my trys it dosnt charge so i cut the 4 troops down.. and 99% after that It NEVER charge..
Don't use zandatsu and use blade mode to kill all of the troops preferably just cut the part of them that will kill them, and as for the gekko, if it doesn't charge use the pincer blade and it will go down easily.
As the other guy said, basic cyborgs can immediately be blade mode dismembered, but don't zandatsu. And use the charge attack with the pincer blades, it will destroy most everything. If you need more help this guy gold medals all the missions, all 20 in one video- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-iQpLT92RY
WOOOT he skipped the TRIANGLE smashing event on the robot and went straingt into Finishing move after it charged oO HOW DID HE DO IT ?!
He perfect-parried a bullet from an enemy's rifle and the counterattack coincidentally hit the Gekko, putting it instantly on stun.
For VR-01, I don't suggest using that video as reference, since it's just plain luck.
Lmao oh man I just saw that myself, that was pretty awesome. And also incredibly lucky... OP I'd suggest that if the gekko doesn't charge immediately restart if you still can't get pincer blades to work, or take out the soldiers who appear with him and kill them while waiting for a charge To be honest this mission is tough to gold (compared to the first 6 or so VR missions)
