Xbox360Achievements.org - Every Point Counts
There are 20 achievements with a total of 1000 points.
|New recruit! (10 points)|
This should be the very first thing you do when getting the game. The tutorial is found by going to the campaign / single-player menu and then selecting it when the prompt appears.
The tutorial should take all of five minutes and gives you a very cursory introduction to the game.
|First blood! (10 points)|
|First mission completed (Campaign Mode)|
"First blood!" as detailed in the description is the very first mission you play after the tutorial. If playing on the lowest difficulty you will only encounter eleven enemies all on foot.
|Specialist Infantry (10 points)|
|First bazooka recruited (Campaign Mode)|
The bazooka unit is unlocked after the second mission. The earliest you can recruit a bazooka unit is after the conclusion of mission #2.
Bazooka- 8,000 Prestige. Cost decreases with a more experienced soldier being upgraded to the Bazooka. And although the price does decrease with a higher exp soldier, note that you must recruit a new unit, not simply upgrade.
|Retrained! (20 points)|
|First upgrade made (Campaign Mode)|
This achievement can be done as early as before the second mission. I upgraded my soldier who had the most experience into a sniper and it unlocked. When looking at who to upgrade, take note at how much exp they have because the more they possess the cheaper the upgrade will be.
|Armored support (20 points)|
|First tank recruited (Campaign Mode)|
You unlock your first tank between missions 2 and 3 although it is quite pricey. Tanks that can be used to fulfill this achievement are the following:
|Destroyer! (20 points)|
|50 German units destroyed (Campaign Mode)|
Will come naturally during the game. Earliest level this can be achieved is Operation 1, Mission 4.
|Battle Hardened Recruit (30 points)|
|First operation completed (Campaign Mode)|
The first operation consists of 2 stealth missions, 2 regular defeat the enemy missions and 1 specialty mission in which an objective must be accomplished that is different than the previous two options. Overall this first operation is where you should build a good balance between range and power without using too much prestige and injuring/losing too many soldiers. The list of Operation 1 missions is as follows:
|Skilled warrior (40 points)|
|Second operation completed (Campaign Mode)|
The second operation consists of some new elements to the game and some new objectives that are sure to keep things lively and fresh. They are as follows:
|Assassin! (40 points)|
|15 German soldiers killed with knife (Campaign Mode)|
You unlock the Commando during Operation 2 right before the first stealth mission in that operation. There is an allied unit you get prior to this stealth mission that you can use, but the commando is the cheapest. In order to get a knife kill though you need to be close enough that the commando can attack in the number of movement pieces he has left and you will need to be able to see the knife icon when you scroll over the enemy troop. When you see this icon simply press and watch the fireworks.
Your best bet for nailing this achievement is to use either one or two commandos during each of the stealth missions following the one in Operation 2. 15 kills will fly by. Just remember to use cover, and use that huge distance they have.
|Heroic (40 points)|
|5 heroic victories achieved (Campaign Mode)|
See "Heroic Leader."
|Their worst nightmare! (40 points)|
|100 German units destroyed (Campaign Mode)|
This will come with the natural progression of the game. The kills can only be unlocked in single player campaign mode.
|Air Support (40 points)|
|First aircraft recruited (Campaign Mode)|
Aircraft are fuel drainers, while at the same time are big time game changers in the field of killing off enemies from afar. These are the three available aircraft that will count for this achievement:
|Inspirational General (50 points)|
|Max out any of Patton's Skills (Campaign Mode)|
Patton has 6 skills each with 10 levels. They are as follows:
|Full army! (60 points)|
|Third Army completed (Campaign Mode)|
"Full army!" requires you to recruit the max number of soldiers which is 24 in campaign mode. If you wanted to simply rush this achievement you must save up at most 24,000 prestige for 24 Regulars at 1,000 prestige a pop.
|Combat veteran (70 points)|
|Third operation completed (Campaign Mode)|
List of missions for Operation 3:
|War Hero (80 points)|
|200 German units destroyed (Campaign Mode)|
This final installment of the number of kill achievements should be unlocked sometime in late Operation 2. Even if you avoid a lot of the unnecessary soldiers, you should snag this well before the later half of your playthrough.
|Weapons Tech (80 points)|
|All types of units unlocked (Campaign Mode)|
There are 7 different types of units to unlock. They are as follows:
|When the war is over (100 points)|
|Game completed (Campaign Mode)|
This achievement simply requires completion of the campaign mode. Here is a list of every mission and its mission type:
|Heroic Leader (120 points)|
|10 heroic victories achieved (Campaign Mode)|
Arguably the hardest aspect to this game will be the achieving 10 heroic victories on 10 different missions in one playthrough. Heroic difficulty for starts is the best rating you can receive upon completing a mission. What contributes to rating? This:
But which missions are best/easiest to do in order to get these heroic ratings? It's up in the air. Some people are much better at the stealth missions (I personally hated them and simply rushed--hard through them). Get a good feel which missions you are best at, and just plan ahead. Notice the different symbols on the map when you are moving onto the next mission.
|Supreme commander (120 points)|
|Fourth operation completed without casualties (Campaign Mode)|
The achievement requires you to complete the fourth and final operation in the campaign without losing a single unit. This in essence means that you cannot have any of your troops die at any point in the five missions that encompass the final operation. Here are a couple quick tips to help you get this booger:
