The Earth Defense Force Wiki

The Package is the third level of the third and final chapter of EDF: Insect Armageddon, making it the thirteenth level in all.

Ops sends in Strike Force Lightning to retrieve an item known as "the package" after another individual of EDF "lost it" after a group of Landers are brought down by the Ravagers. Its proper location is narrowed down to 4 places—the aforementioned landers. Unfortunately Ops warns Lightning that the area is swarmed with Buggernauts. The contents of "the package" are also considered classified.

The level has fourth points where you must hold your ground and kill off a full swarm of giant insects. On the second scan there will be three Anthills to constantly spawn enemies, and on the fourth there will be a mid-boss battle against three Ravager Mantises at once.
