Galactic Threat (Merciless) is one of the possible follow-up stages that the player can access after completing An Elder Secret (Merciless), the first stage in Growing Strange. Completing this stage yields an Elder Catfruit Seed, with a very small chance of an Elder Catfruit. This stage is based around Alien Enemies.
- The battle begins with a Scissoroo.
- After 27 seconds, another Scissoroo will appear.
- When the enemy base is attacked, Kroxo and Ursamajor spawn alongside the boss, Elder Sloth, with Scissoroo appearing after 10 seconds.
- Another Ursamajor appears after 40 seconds.
- Scissoroo spawns every 20 seconds and stops spawning after 100 seconds.
- Kroxo spawns every 12 - 14 seconds.
This is a relatively normal stage, as it is a simple army of strong enemies without the help of Long Distance, Metal trait, burrowing/reviving, omni-strike etc.
For this reason, all you need to have is a bunch of strong units with good range (or, better, LD) and some meatshields. Due to the strenght of the enemies, however, you shouldn't take this level lightly, especially if you don't have anti-alien units.
