Jump Master 25gp
Discover a skill drop location in every mission

see Master Parachutist

Crack Shot 25gp
Get 10 head shots in a row

While i was on Operation Husky and did it with a Springfield, just be patient and wait for the enemies to stop moving and take their head off. You can miss a shot and not hit them, if does not count if you completely miss the enemy but if you hit them you have to restart.

Tick-Tick-BOOM 20gp
Kill 3 enemies with a cooked grenade

I got this on the First level, what you do is you hold down the throw button and you hear it tick and then you just let it go when you think it is ready, I found a group of Italians who were all standing together, try to look for such a thing.

5-In-A-Row 20gp
Earn a 5-in-a-row

Here you must kill 5 enemies in a row without getting hurt or damaged at all, i did this on Operation Neptune when you have to take the trenches, just look at your radar and see where the largest clumps of enemies are

Homerun 10gp
Kill an enemy with a Sprint-run

This is a very easy achievement you have to sprint (click Left thumb stick) and run up to an Enemy and melee (click right thumb stick) them, they will die in one hit

Shoot to Kill 10gp
Kill an Enemy with iron sights while moving

What you have to do is go into the options and switch you control's to schematic #2, then you go back into the game and hit the Left Bumper and move around, find an enemy and kill him while you are walking around looking down your sights. If you don't want to change the controls then you can hold LT and then click the left thumb stick and move around.

In Yer Face 20gp
Kill an enemy by kicking a grenade at him

When there is a grenade thrown at me i just kick it in any random direction and hope there is someone there to get killed by the grenade, another way to do it is to throw your own grenade at your feet and then kick it at an enemy.

Purple Heart 10gp
Recover to full health after being on the verge of death

I started playing the game on Normal difficulty and you will get down to very little health sometime in the game it does not take very long, then just look for health packs like any normal person would and you will eventually find enough to get back to full health and you will get the achievement

Pop-n-Drop 5gp
Crouch-Sprint between cover objects

Also done on the first level, you crouch behind one cover object and look for another and then get up and sprint (click left thumb stick) for it and then stop sprinting when you are behind the object

Weapon Handler 25gp
Fully upgrade one weapon

I went through the first level and i just used the Axis Rifle (will edit when i remember the name) and i get it very quickly, If you kill people using the Sprint - Melee they die in one hit and you get a very large amount of experience for that kill

Weapon Specialist 50gp
Fully upgrade five weapons

I Upgraded 1 weapon in each level, the Enemies weapons are the easiest to upgrade because there is ammo all over the place. If you do 1 weapon per level you will have 6 by the end of the game

Weapon Master 75gp
Fully upgrade all weapons

You will have to go back through to the earlier levels to get this, best go through level 1 a bunch of times and get it there, try to get 1 weapon and then finish the level, Then rinse and repeat. You must upgrade Every type of weapon that is in the game, if you go into the Campaign & Medals section then hit the right trigger a couple of times then you will see the Badge's Bar, here shows all the weapons that are upgradeable. You must do all Grenades and all the pistols and the Recoilless tank rifle. Just use Melee's and throw a lot of Grenades

Cheat Death 20gp
Complete any Operations without dying

Best done on the first level on casual, just make sure you don't run out into bad places and kill everyone on your radar before moving up. If you are about to die and you hit the "load last check point" then you can continue and try to get the achievement.

Village of Adanti 15gp
Complete Operation Husky

This is the first level and the easiest of them all. Here is where I upgrade weapons, go through the level once using only 1 weapon and it will be fully upgraded before you finish the level. there are large amounts of enemies that are sitting around in the same area you can use this to your advantage and try to get the 5-in-a-row achievement.

These are the objectives for this Level

-Secure the town of Adanti
----Destroy the Town Hall AA Guns (2)
----Destroy the Hill Houses AA Gun
----Destroy the North East AA Gun
-Assemble with the Airborne at the North Gate
-Locate the missing Sniper team
-Eliminate the German Officer
-Repel the German Counterattack
----Assemble with the Airborne at the Town Square
----Eliminate the German Officers (3)

Paestum Ruins 20gp
Complete Operation Avalanche

This level is much harder than the following level, also much more frustrating. There are many different parts when you run into a large group of enemies and there is no where to take cover. In these point just lie down and take out the guys who are giving you trouble once they have been killed get up and try to find the closet place for cover that is possible. The one part that i had the most trouble with was the end of the level when you have to take the top of the temple. When the soldier first blows the gate you have to go up some stairs to move forward. The only problem with this is that fact that there are dozens of Germans that are guarding the stairs. During this level i picked up a Springfield, so i hide behind the gate that was blown open and took out all the enemies that showed up. If you don't have a Springfield then you need to use the gun you have and throw every grenade that you have to the top of the stairs this will reduce their numbers and then you can move up slowly and pick them off as they show up.

These are the Objectives for this Level

-Secure Paestum Ruins
----Sabotage Fuel Containers (2)
----Destroy Ammo Containers
-Sabotage Enemy Communications
----Disable Communications Antenna
----Disable Communications Radio
-Assemble with 5th Army Demo Team
-Defeat Enemy Ambush
-Assemble with Corporal Kish
-Destroy the Hilltop Artillery
----Ascend to the Hilltop Temple

D-Day in Reverse 25gp
Complete Operation Neptune

During Operation Neptune the Airborne drops down behind the Axis line of defense that is set up to repel the Incoming beach invasion. Here on this level you start out behind the enemy line and make you way to the beaches to clear the road for the 4th Infantry division. This level is not hard but it is not easy. The hardest part in my mind would be at the end of the level when you finish blowing up the 88's you have to take the 3 pillboxes to give the infantry on the beach a chance to advance. Here you are set behind a broken down truck and you have to avoid a large cross fire and make your way into the trenches. Here just hide behind the truck and lean out to your right and pick off anyone who pokes their head out. Once you cannot see anyone left behind the boxes head to the trench to the left of the truck and make your way around the trenches through there there will be a pillbox in that trench and the other one is father to the right.

These are the Objectives for this Level

-Secure Audoueville Battery
----Collect M18 Bundles
----Clear and Secure Spotting Tower
----Destroy Radar Antenna Relay
-Knock Out Tiger Tank
-Clear Concrete Casement
-Clear Pillboxes

Nijmegen Bridge 30gp
Complete Operation Market Garden

Here i went through the mission pretty quickly the only problem that i had was the ending at the bridge, I sprinted out to the blown up tank and i just picked people off with my Rifle, make sure there is nobody who is looking at you before you move up because one shot from them will kill you. The tank i just hit with one shot from the Panzerfaust and then i quickly backed away behind the bus, DO NOT try to get more than one shot off of you will die

These are the objectives for this Level

-Sabotage Bridge Demolition equipment
----Disable explosive plunger
----Disable Radio Equipment
-Secure town of Nijmegen
----Collect Gammon Grenades
----Knock out Roving Tiger Tank
----Clear the 3 MG Nest's
-Clear Resistance and assemble with the Airborne
-Knock out Tiger Tank
-Assemble with the Airborne at the bridge Surface
-Clear our and Secure Bridge
----Knock Out Tiger Tank

War Machine 35gp
Complete Operation Varsity

The factory is not my favorite level, i really did not like the factory levels in any other WW2 games. Here you have to Sabotage the Germans Tank Factory. Basically start off with a Springfield because there are snipers all over the place, this is the sniping level. if you have the Springfield it is pretty easy to progress through this level, at the end you have to watch out for the MG42 SS Freaks they can take more damage than a brick wall so just use an upgraded SMG and pump them full of lead and they will eventually go down

These are the objectives for this Level

-Secure Factory Drop Zone
----Destroy Tanks on Rail cars (3)
----Destroy Munitions Stockpile
----Destroy the Rail gun
----Sabotage the Tank Factory control room
----Destroy Pressure Valves (2)
-Assemble with the Airborne at the Steel Mill
----Clear and Secure the Entrance to the rail yard
-Clear and Secure the rail yard
----Destroy the Panzerzug Engine
----Destroy the Panzerzug Cannon cars (2)

Der Flakturm 40gp
Complete operation Der Flakturm

The is the final and hardest operation of the game. Here you are set out to destroy a Flak Tower. I found this level pretty hard on normal difficulty. My only problem during the level seemed to be the Nazi Storm Elites (the guys with the MG42's and the gas masks). When you run into one of these you half to take your time and find some cover before you even start shooting them. Lean out of your cover and put shots on them until the notice you and start shooting you. Once that happens lean back into your cover and wait until they look somewhere else. The hardest part of the level is at the end when you run into about 10 of these things. When your trying to escape and you finally see them and die the first time, you will know where they are, throw every grenade and gammon bomb you have into the middle of them, this will reduce the number. Then find some cover and pick them off 1 by 1.

These are the objectives for this Level

-Secure The Flak Tower
----Destroy the AA guns (4)
----Eliminate Enemies on the Half tracks
----Disable the Ammunition lift controls (4th floor)
----Disable the Ammunition lift controls (2nd floor)
-Assemble at the Main Control room (3rd floor)
-Assemble with the engineers in the ammunitions room
-Escape the Flak Tower
-Destroy the Flak Tower

While here there is only one good peace of advice that i can give and that is too take it slow. Unlike in the Call Of Duty series you can sit in one position and just keep killing enemies and they will eventually stop coming, there is a limit to the amount of enemies that come. If you just wait until this point then you should do fine and not have much of a problem with this. On the later levels Use the Shotgun, unrealistically you can hit a target that is more that 20 feet away from you. Also Use grenades they are very useful and can damage an enemy very easily.

MP - Distinguished Service Cross 75gp
Get over 1,000 kills and 500 objective points in ranked online matches

Just play objective games and you will get this achievement after a while, if you are in objective games try to take the flag and score it as many times as you can because the objective points are the hardest to get. The 1000 kills won't take you more than a week if you play 3-4 matches per day. The reason for objective games is that you can kill people and get you kills but you also have the chance to get objective points

MP - Distinguished Service Medal 25gp
Get over 500 kills and 250 objective points in ranked online matches

See Distinguished Service cross

MP - Silver Star 0gp
Get over 20 first place finishes in ranked online matches

While you have to get first place in the entire game including both teams, just try to get the flag a lot and kill any one that you see, if you are any good at this game then you should get this pretty quickly and it will unlock on your way to the Distinguished Service Cross achievement.

MP - American Campaign Medal 0gp
Be on the winning team for every map in ranked matches

See WW2 victory Medal

MP - Legion of Merit 20gp
Get over 10 objective points in ranked matches

Start an objective game and try to get the flag as many times as possible, you get one point for delivering the flag and you also get a point for killing the enemy flag carrier. Just keep going after the flag and try to score as many times as possible.

MP - Soldier's Medal 20gp
Get 20 kill assist through out a career in ranked matches

Just follow someone on your team around and when they see someone and shoot them you also shoot them, if you kill them then they got a kill assist but if they kill the enemy then you got the kill assist. If you do this for 2-3 games you will get the achievement

MP - Bronze Star 0gp
Get over 20 top three finishes in ranked matches

If you have played shooters before this achievement is really easy, there are not very many people online who are very good, so just use what gun you want and try to capture as many objectives as possible to get points. If you play 30 matches and you are good at FPS's then this should come very easily. If not just try to kill as many people as possible if you find a map that you are good at then just set it to the map on your settings and go from there. This does not take very long

MP - Purple Heart 10gp
Recover full health after being on the verge of death in ranked matches

Same as the achievement for the single player just find a way to get healed and this will come because you are bound to get hurt to the point of death some time in Multiplayer. I got this achievement by running over an objective and it healed me, so you can try that but don't get your hopes up

MP - World War II Victory Medal 0gp
Come in first place on every map in any game mode in ranked matches

Here you can get 3 achievement while trying to get this one. If you go into to custom matches then set it to each map just play on that map until you come in first place, then go back to the custom games and repeat with a different map, you will most likely get the American campaign medal achievement because if is hard to come in first place when your team is not in first place in the game.

MP - EAM Campaign Medal 25gp
Play every map in ranked matches

See WW2 Victory Medal

MP - Good Conduct Medal 0gp
Play 20 consecutive ranked matches without getting a team kill

If you want this just wait until you see their name in red before you shoot at anything. This will allow you to not kill any team mates and make sure that they are enemies before shooting them. If you have a hard time doing this then just join a game hide and wait till the game ends you will not be killing anyone let alone you teammates

MP - Presidential Unit Citation 30gp
Get 20 team points in a ranked match

See Meritorious Unit Citation

MP - Meritorious Unit Citation 20gp
Get 30 team points in a ranked match

Here is one of the hardest achievements in the game because team points are hard to get. Try to follow someone around. It is best if they are the best player on your team. Help them capture all the flags and shoot everyone that they shoot eventually this will unlock because you get 2 points for getting an assist and you get 3 points for capturing a flag with someone else so if you combine the two you could get a large amount of points following someone around

MP - Paratrooper Badge 10gp
Kill an enemy with a melee kick

Same as the single player achievement, you have to come down right on top of someone and then hit the melee button and you will kick him, if you are on the allies team then just look for someone you don't have to be right on top of them but some where around them and you will kill them. You will get this in maybe 1-2 matches

MP - Combat Infantryman Badge 10gp
Kill an enemy player while he is parachuting

This is harder than it sounds but is still pretty easy, during a match just look every once and a while, if you see someone then just shoot at them and hope that you hit them, after 3-4 tries you will get the hang of how fast they fall and you might be able to get them there.

MP - Pistol Whip 10gp
Kill an enemy with a Pistol Melee

If you really want this then try to sneak up on someone and then Sprint-Melee them to death otherwise just run around with your pistol and try the Sprint-Melee and eventually someone will miss you and you will get a chance to hit them

MP - Human Flak Gun 5gp
Kill an enemy with a grenade while he is Parachuting

watch an enemy who is trying to come down right above you and then cook off a grenade until it gets to the part where it is about to go off then throw and there he goes. Takes a while to find someone who is right on top of you though so you might have to look a little bit

MP - Weapon Virtuoso 40gp
Upgrade all weapons during ranked Matches

Here you only need to upgrade the 5 main categories of weapons and they can be used on both sides, so if you want to upgrade the SMG you can get experience on the Axis using the MP40 and you can also get experience using the Thompson. The ones in bold are the side you want to be on to upgrade that class as the weapons are better.

Master Parachutists 40gp
Discover all skill drop locations in the game

Operation Husky

1) The sniper's tower near town hall, just to the south, has a destroyed rooftop. Land on the walkway inside of it.

2) The building just to the north of town hall has a balcony. Find the chute there, then flare your landing and press forward to land on it; it's covered.

3) Church Steeple: Near the northeastern green landing zone, there's a church. Land atop the steeple tower.

4) Small Rooftop: If you glide down to the eastern side of the city, you'll see an alleyway that isn't part of the main road of the town. There's a small, half-destroyed rooftop here that you need to land on. It's difficult to see from the air, but if you land in the road and look around, you'll spot the chute.

5) If you head towards the Northeast Gate AA gun, you'll come under an archway. See the parachute? You need to land through that window. Note that although the gate is the Northeast Gate, it'll actually appear on your compass to be in the southwestern portion of the city. Go figure.

Operation Avalanche

1) In the ampitheatre, land on top of the cargo loader.

2) Near the western drop flare, there's a large column. Land on top of it.

3) Near the eastern drop flare, look along the aqueduct that lines the road to spot a parachute and land through the opening there.

4) In the fuel depot where you destroy the fuel reservers, there's a water tower. Land on it.

5) To the west of the ammo depot that you destroy, there's an easy-to-miss set of stonework excavations. If you stick to the top of it, you can find a parachute. Land through the opening in the ceiling

Operation Neptune

1) In the same house as the green flare you have to land on the second floor

2) You can also spot this one from the air when dropping into this level

3) it is in the small ruined house between the spotting tower and the radar antenna, you can find another parachute.

4) This one is Near the Concrete bunker on the outside

5) for this one you have to land on the concrete wall that leads to the bunker

Operation Market Garden

1) There's one near the church steeple, on a platform just outside.

2) In between the buildings to the south that house two of the MG nests, there's a small plank connecting two of them. Land on the plank.

3) In the same buildings as above, head to the easternmost building and go upstairs. There's a parachute in the northwestern corner of the building, near a large hole in the wall. Land inside the hole.

4) On the northern side of the city, near the demolitions equipment, there's a large alleyway leading north. Spot the chute hanging down to the street, and land in the balcony above it.

5) In a building near the radio equipment, there's one last parachute.

Operation Varsity

1) Land through the doorway of the balcony in the munitions factory on the middle southern side of the zone. The balcony is red, so this chute is difficult to miss.

2) There's a flatbed train car on the eastern side of the area, elevated off the ground and surrounded by snipers; it's up the ladder to your right if you exit the munitions factory through the doorway near the explosive charge point. Land on it.

3) On the fuel tanks across from the tank factory, there's a catwalk leading over to the upper entrance of the factory. Find it, then look around on the balcony for the chute.

4) The last two are pretty high up. Climb up from the landing zone between the two tall buildings and head east along the pipe there. You should find a chute on the pipe near a small hut with two snipers in it.

5) The last drop point is atop the three large fuel canisters in the middle of the map. You can't see the chute from the ground, so you'll have to just drop onto it to find it.

Der Flakturm

1) On the southeastern side of the tower, between the uppermost roof level and the lower ring around it, there's a small balcony with a chute on it. Land through the doorway to receive your stripes.

2) If you head to the fourth floor of the interior of the tower, you should be able to spot a doorway leading to the sniper's scaffolding outside. There's a pretty obvious chute here that you need to land on

3) The secret entrance! There's a very tough-to-spot window on the northwestern corner of the tower, above one of the markers for one of the halftrack soldiers. The easiest way to find the window is to land on top of the tower and head downwards completing objectives. After destroying the ammo lift controls on the fourth floor, take the ladder in the room downward to the semi-hidden ammo cache room. The walkways on either side of the room will lead you to the window.

4) On the western side of the tower, in the middle of all the sniper's scaffoldings, you can spot a row of small windows, including one with a chute in it.

5) When you jump, turn 180 degrees and its in the house on your left, you should see the parachute in the doorway coming down.

Kill an Enemy with iron sights while moving

What you have to do is go into the options and switch you control's to schematic #2, then you go back into the game and hit the Left Bumper and move around, find an enemy and kill him while you are walking around looking down your sights.



Or without changing the controls you can just hold LT and click and hold the left thumb stick, that way you can be on iron sights whilst still able to move.

So for 5-in-a-row and 10-in-a-row: Do you have to get 5 (or 10) headshots in a row without taking any damage or just kill 5 (or 10) people in a row without taking damage? Also, does exiting scope view or changing weapons affect these 2 achievements? (ex: get 4 kills w/out damage w/ the sniper rifle, then switch to another rifle and get 1 kill w/out damage). Thanks for the guide.

5-In-A-Row 20gp
Earn a 5-in-a-row

Here you must kill 5 enemies in a row without getting hurt or damaged at all.

I got it by killing 5 enemies in quick sucession (threw a grenade and took out my machine gun and started shooting) and I did get damaged quite a bit.

Saracin
09-13-2007, 04:59 AM
The 5 in a row probably has to be within a certain amount of time between each kill or the 5 have to be rather quick period.

The head shots are more than likely 10 in a row as long as you don't miss the head of the enemy or accidentally fire a shot

i have another question along these lines: does all of the 5-in-a-row kills or 10 headshot kills have to be back to back?
or for example, i snipe out an entire area, then go walk around until i can setup another sniping position, take out some more, etc...?

on the first level you are in Italy, Operation Husky is when the Airborne takes down Rome and central Italy while Patton and Monty move up from the recently taken Sicily. The first level you start off by killing Italians... don't question my knowledge on WW2:p

the reason that i don't have pictures is because they take up space and take too long to put up and get in there correctly. there will be pictures once i get it submitted

a really easy way to do the 10 head shots in a row is to go to operation husky and when you have to take out the AA gun on the hill there are 3 machine gun nests on the way. Let your AI counterparts kill everyone except the machine gun guys, just keep hitting guys on the machine guns its really easy, just use the squeeze mechanism. Just keep shooting them and you should get it fairly easily.

you can get a skill drop and then die then get another and die and so forth and then go and finish the level. Once you get all 5 go get a checkpoint but you have to finish the level

I also have one more question. When you are completeing campaigns on different difficulties can you just choose the "select campaign" feature and start from there while maintaining all your upgraded weapons, stats, badges or do you have to choose "new campaign" for you to get the achievement?

Cyrex
10-07-2007, 03:04 PM
if you choose new campaign you will have to restart completely you want to use choose level so that you keep your weapons

HowardsTurn
10-07-2007, 03:11 PM

i know a bunch of people who had trouble with greased landing, all you do is run forward as you land, up on the joystick.


For the 5-in-a-row try operation market garden and use grenades near one of the machine gun nests

I saw people having trouble upgrading the Panzershrek and Recoilless. Both are found on GROUND LEVEL on Der Flaktum. As you start turn around and land on the top of the houses behind the green smoke. There should be 3 crates on the bottom floor of this house with Explosive, Ammo, and Health. On the bottom floor in front of the stairs there is a Panzershrek, and at the top (you might have to parachute onto the topmost level) there is a Recoilless. This way you can continually use them, and there are explosive ammo all the way up the tower. I just started using it on that level and nearly fully upgraded it while killing those hard guys constantly. Worked like a charm.

The greased landing is explained in the tutorial mission, which is where i got the Go go go achievement also, just by pushing the joystick forwards as you come for a landing

These achievements are sadly not stacked like they are in recent games so you have to go through on each difficulty, not just on one.

i found the easiest level and weapons to get the 5 In-a-Row is on Der Flakturm and with the Gammon grenades or Panzerschrek, respectively. The tight areas, close spawn points, and close hiding locations lead the enemies to basically huddle together like sheep to the slaughter for this one. The gammon is best implemented after being cooked for this but the panzer is ready any time. Regular weapons can also be easily used to get this, you just have to be fast and (I believe) you need to remain undamaged throughout.

Its actually only ten. Not 30. On my xbox, it says 10 when I checked my achievements.


Anyone else having problems getting World War II Victory medal I've came in first many times on all maps and still no achievement

This is a hard one, as there is no way to keep track of which ones you've come in first or not. So I'd suggest just to do your best when playing. Also, it only counts as first place if you're the best of both teams.



Also for anyone interested, certain MP achievements, like Purple Heart and Human Flak Gun can be done in a player private match. So just get a buddy to help you with these. Its also possible to get your friends all in the same game since not many still play at the same time, but it'll be hard, as its randomly generated.

Never mind, I finally hit the mark. If anyone else is having a problem hitting a distance skill landing, just press the A button, it will slow your decent and allow you to travel a greater distance.l

Just a clarification, for the skill drop achievements, do I have to do them at the beginning of each mission and land in the green smoke each time? I have noidea what to do with these, the guide doesn't actually explain what you're meant to do.

*BTC* Corrupted
10-21-2009, 09:38 PM
You don't have to land in the green (safe) areas. Inorder to get the skill drop achivements you must land one skill drop for the 1st one. To get the Jump Master one you must land all 30 skill drops.

After you land a skill drop you can either continue to the next check point... or if you become KIA (Killed In Action) then you can attempt to land another skill drop.

With some of the drops you will have to stear the rigging to hit the skill points.

Good Luck with it

Yes use the select campaign option and select the difficulty from there and you will keep the weapon upgrades DONT select start new campaign

I don't know if this changed in an update or if I'm just unlucky, but I just went through the game on normal after having done it on expert. I used the select campaign option and finished the game. No achievement popped.

EDIT: It turns out that the game was glitched somehow. If I started on normal or casual it would be fine for that level. When I continued from there, however, it would reset to expert. (How did I not notice that I was beating the game on expert rather than normal? I would like to think that I am just that good. but I suspect it is because I am just that stupid...) When I quit out to the main menu after every campaign and restarted on the appropriate level, I did eventually pop both the casual and normal achievements.

06-09-2010, 08:37 AM
You need to complete the campaign on Casual,normal and expert. I finished the expert one and only did got it from expert. So i also did Casual and Normal to get those. Only need the master parachutist now, and 20 matches without team killing and the win in every ranked match but that 1 is bugged for some reason and the weapon virtuoso. Only needa upgrade both bazooka's and 1 sniper rifle.
