    -Mission 1-
    This one is easy. You should always equip a long range weapon and a sword.
    Use the sword to slaughter the mech after about 6 hits. There are plenty of
    destructable objects, so use them as cover.
    
    -Mission 2-
    A bit harder. Use the blocks seperating you from the enemy mech as cover.
    Hopefully he will waste all of his missiles trying to destroy the blocks to
    get to you. Use any beam weapon you can to take him out.
    
    -Mission 3-
    This guy is TOUGH! Use your rifles or long range weapons. This guy is extremely
    fast and can dish out LOADS of damage. Whittle him down while using the pillars
    as cover and you should'nt have too much of a problem.
    
    -Mission 4-
    You start far away from each other. Use this distance to your advantage and
    whittle away at him with your Beam Rifle (If you have one in your possesion).
    You do not get anything for beating this mini game, it's just loads of fun.
