Pylon is the last mission of the Europe campaign of Iron Brigade. Resembling a hermit crab of technology the Pylon lives in the side of a large hill with a back full of antennas and power lines.


Commander Woodruff: "We've reached the Northern Pylon, which seems to be the source of the Broadcast. It was the Broadcast that started this whole mess in the first place, and destroying this Pylon should end it all... at least it better."

  • Destroy the Pylon.
  • Keep your distance.
  • Target arms when exposed.




Fighting the Pylon is a three part battle. The first is a straight forward assault as the Pylon's head remains still allowing the players to tear apart its health.

After the first health bar is removed a shield appears around the Pylon's head and it pulls itself further out of the hill with six spider like legs, the target at this point is each of the Pylon's legs.

Once the legs are all destroyed the Pylon will fall on its face and eventually lose its shielding, at which point it will get up for its final attempt to destroy you. The target at this point is simply the head as the shields have been disabled.

Gold Medal Edit

Beating this boss in 40 seconds may seem impossible your first time, but with a little practice and the right weapons its actually very easy. Using quickload legs is a must as this cuts reloading time by more than half. The Gungnir is a great sniper to use for this boss and any high damage artillery cannons can also be helpful.
