[WALKTHROUGH] Single player walkthrough

Postby Hob_Gadling » Fri 22 Jun 2012 16:36

I'm doing a commentated single player walkthrough with all primary and secondary objectives. It's halfway done now: I expect it should be finished in about 4 more weeks. Enjoy!

Thanks for the walkthroughs, Hob - they were incredibly helpful.

I have a question about a technique you used in Bruder gegen bruder 3rd mission: at thet start, you selected Paratroopers from the Deployment Menu, then placed them in individual groups of 2 at various points on the map, without ever going back to the Deployment Menu. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to make this work - whatever number I select from the menu all get placed at once. How did you do this?

Thanks,
Sky

My singleplayer walkthrough:
For missions that require taking out specific CV(s), which is the majority of missions, deploying a bunch of attack helos in the beginning and rushing straight for it works extremely well with proper recon.

I think I completed one of the PACT campaigns in less than an hour using that. Not exciting, yes, but I was just anxious to get the stars and start playing MP.

Best wishes,
Daniel

I found the missions were predictable once you found out what was going on and where everything was. Thus I was able to find the best way to place my forces. Then take my time and methodically eliminate enemy forces.

The AI was very good though at throwing some surprises in here and there but I was able to finish most missions with no losses. I was obsessed with keeping as many units alive and vetted as possible lol.

I even managed to take out most AI CV's thinking it would cripple them. Lotta good that does :P

Thanks - I hadn't realized that "Queue" also apllied to deployment.

The final mission just went up. For the most part I tried to play the missions honestly: no hunting down enemy CVs to prevent reinforcements, for example. For many missions I also had an extra challenge, which is now mentioned in the Youtube notes box. You be the judge on how well I did. Most of them were certainly fun to attempt.

If someone manages to complete all Wasteland mission 4 objectives without any helicopters and tanks at all, I really want to see the video. I got very close many times, but that doesn't count.
