There are 12 achievements with a total of 200 points.
|Destroy a Super Tank Classic game - Normal difficulty||(2)|
The super tank is a rare enemy. Sometimes you won’t spot one until 50,000 points and sometimes you might only need 20,000. It seems like the super tank spawn is tied in with how many missiles you destroy though, so try to take out any missiles you can (the enemy not the shots fired at you.)
The super tank is much faster and more compact than the normal tank and other enemies.
|Destroy a Tank by piloting a Missile Multiplayer game - Ranked match|
|Join a ranked multiplayer game and fire a missile at him, you will now be in the perspective of the missile and can control it’s direction, hit an enemy with it and they should go down. Remember that you don’t move while piloting the missile and so should try to hide behind some cover before you fire.|
|Score 50000 Classic game - Throttle Monkey mode||(1)|
|Scoring 50,000 points isn’t going to be too easy so see the achievement “Corporal” for tips.|
|Score 100000 Classic game - Normal difficulty|
|Scoring 100,000 points is a difficult task as well. Your only option to gain points is to kill enemies by shooting them with your missiles and you’ll have to survive at the same time so avoiding their missiles is a must too.|
The following are point totals for the enemies you can kill.
Super tanks: 3,000
Now for the tips.
-Missiles will always spawn in front of you and will always use the same path of movement to try to hit you. They move pretty fast so trying to avoid them is pretty much out of the question so you’ll have to try to shoot them down. Missiles will always zig zag at you and as mentioned before use the same pattern, try to get the pattern down and then fire at them as they get closer for a larger target. If you don’t have very good aim wait until the very last second before the missile hits you and then shoot. Since it’s about to impact it will be facing right at you and be right in your crosshair (assuming you didn’t move.)
-If an enemy tank fires at you, turn your tank away from the shot and move
forward slightly. This will put you just far away enough from the shot to avoid it but close enough to be able to counter attack quickly. Once the shot has flown past fire back at the enemy. Remember that avoiding shots comes before shooting an enemy, so only fire back after you’ve dodged one or you risk getting shot.
-Although flying saucers are worth the most points they don’t attack you, so wait until there aren’t any tanks troubling you before you shoot a saucer down.
-Closer enemies attack you faster and you are able to kill them faster. Their shots are harder to dodge than further ones so always kill closer enemies first.
-As mentioned before, the closer an enemy the bigger the threat, so stay as far away as possible.
-Use third person perspective, it gives you a better view of the battle field than first person and makes lining up shots a bit easier in my opinion.
-Watch your radar, it makes thing so much easier when you know where the enemy is when it spawns rather than spending 3 seconds looking around for it. Also be aware of where you next enemy is when fighting multiple enemies so you can quickly move to avoid any shots it fires at you after you deal with the first one.
-Keep moving, except for when you have to aim just keep moving along, you never know when an enemy is going to shoot at you and from what direction.
|Win a game Multiplayer game - Ranked match|
|Winning a ranked match isn’t all that difficult. The most difficult part of this achievement though is simply getting into that game. Since online play is very scarce in the game I recommend simply setting up a match with a friend or another player and then beating them. Remember, its got to be a ranked match.|
|Destroy 10 Saucers Evolved game - Normal difficulty||(1)|
|Head into the evolved game and realize that the classic game completely blows when compared to this one.|
After you’ve done that you’ll have to kill ten saucers. The saucer is the enemy that is shaped like an oval and floats around the area doing nothing. You can go to “Help and Options” at the menu and then see a picture of one if you still don’t understand.
The main trick to killing ten saucers is simply shooting them when they spawn. Every time you kill one the respawn timer for the next is reset, so killing them sooner will cause the next to spawn sooner. Survive long enough and you should be able to pick this one up quickly.
|Have 5 lives in hand Evolved game - Normal difficulty|
|You start the game with 3 lives and get your first one after 15,000 points. The next one you unlock will take another 30,000 points for a total of 50,000 points. That’s assuming you didn’t lose one life in the course of the 50,000 points though.|
See the achievement “Corporal” for more help on succeeding in BattleZone.
|Get a 5-frag killing spree Multiplayer game - Ranked match|
|Getting a 5 kill streak might not be the most difficult thing in the world but getting someone to play against actually is. There’s no way around it, find another person with the game and then have them allow you to kill them five times in a row.|
Be a good person and allow them to kill you five times back as well.
|Destroy 10 missiles in 1 game Classic game - Normal difficulty|
|Missiles are hard to kill sometimes, luckily you can die to them while going for this achievement. Eventually while going through BattleZone missiles will begin attacking you. You’ll need to kill ten to get the achievement. As mentioned before there are a few things you should know when trying to kill missiles.|
Missiles will always spawn in front of you and will always use the same path of movement to try to hit you. They move pretty fast so trying to avoid them is pretty much out of the question so you’ll have to try to shoot them down. Missiles will always zig zag at you and as mentioned before use the same pattern, try to get the pattern down and then fire at them as they get closer for a larger target. If you don’t have very good aim wait until the very last second before the missile hits you and then shoot. Since it’s about to impact it will be facing right at you and be right in your crosshair (assuming you didn’t move.)
|Win a game without dying Multiplayer game - Ranked match|
|Again, get a boosting partner for these online achievements. You can get all the achievements done in one match if you really want to but it’ll take all day to find a match without a boosting partner.|
|Have three enemies in play at once Evolved game - Normal difficulty|
|Simply don’t kill any enemies and continue dodging their fire, enemies will keep spawning and eventually you will get this achievement. Even if you’re not going for it, it probably will unlock while going for the achievement “Lieutenant.”|
|Score 1000000 Classic game - Normal difficulty|
|1,000,000 points. One million points. Ouch. See the achievement “Corporal” for tips on getting the points but unless you really like the game then I wouldn’t bother going for this achievement.|
It simply isn’t worth 30 gamerscore to play this game for that long.
