Battle Stations Midway - Achievement Guide
Hey all, thought I would start one of these as nobody else has started one yet.

Artilery Marksmenship - 20gp
see "Navy Distinguished Service Medal"

AA Marksmenship - 20gp
see "Navy Distinguished Service Medal"

Legion of Merit - 20gp
see "Navy Distinguished Service Medal"

Bronze Star - 20gp
see "Navy Distinguished Service Medal"

Distinguished Service Cross - 30gp
see "Navy Distinguished Service Medal"

Silver Star - 30gp
see "Navy Distinguished Service Medal"

Navy Cross - 40gp
see "Navy Distinguished Service Medal"

Navy Distinguished Service Medal - 40gp
This medal was achieved along with:

Navy Cross
Silver Star
Distinguished Service Cross
Bronze Star
Legion of Merit
AA Marksmenship
Artillery Marksmenship

This can be done with yourself and just one other player. I did this on the island of soloman (I think - well the demo map on full version) the person who is collecting these achievements should go Japs and the other Yanks. Heres how it goes
1) Jap player creates 2 battle ships only (Make sure you hold X and press left on d-pad to bring up orders and make sure that all items are turned off, just to make sure that no AI shooting is done. Send one BB to the Yank shipyard (a few squares out) and send the other to D4.

The Yank player should send their 2 carriers to E5 and send up 6 squadrons of Tordeo Bombers (You do not have to worry about orders just ensure that they are hovering around that square and not set to attack.

Once everyone is in position the Yank player should take control of a squadron and do fly-byes on the battle ship whilst the jap player pummels the crap out of the planes with AA fire. once all planes are destroyed in the 1st wave create a 2n wave and repeat. You only need 3 waves. Just make sure that you only create the next once all places in each wave are destroyed. It makes things easier.

2) Once the 3rd wave is done the Jap BB should destroy the 2 carriers, make sure you get a broadside to get as many artillery hits as possible.

Yank player should create destroyers and subs but making sure that they turn orders off so that the 2nd battleship is not attacked. Then as the Jap player simply artillery the crap out of these ships and repeat. They cant take much from a full broadside so make sure you do about 5 waves of ships to ensure that you get the 200 artillery hits. Toi make things easier once they are out of the shipyard just stop the destroyers and subs (as a still target is a good target)

3) once you have had enough blow up the ship yards and hey presto achievements unlocked :D


Hope this helps guys, Will do a guide tomorrow for the sub challenges and some of the other achievements tomorrow.

Peace out.

Part 2 - snuck this in whilst at work, am being hawk eyed so will tidy it up with pictures when I get home :D
Purple Heart - 20Gp
Simply have the worst kill death ratio. This is easily achieved if you are the yank player. See "Navy Distinguished Service Medal"
Air Unit Service Medal - 20gp

This again can be achieved whilst working towards "Navy Distinguished Service Medal" as the Yank player, due to you being the only person controlling planes.
Sea Unit Service Medal - 20gp
Unloucked as the jap player in "Navy Distinguished Service Medal"
Torpedo Marksmanship - 20gp
"See Air Medal"
Submarine Service Medal - 20gp
see "Air medal"
Distinguished Flying Cross - 50gp
see "Air Medal"
Air Medal - 50Gp
This can be unlocked with distinguished flying cross on the same map as "Navy distinguished service medal" scenario.

The only difference is that you as th jap player choose a single fighter plane. The yank player selects all torpedo bombers and makes sure that in the orders section on each squad they turn free fire to OFF. this makes things so much easier for you. Send them to an open water square and ensure that free fire is turned off for the carriers incase you get too close. Simply take out 3 waves of torpedo bombers with your fighter.

Build 2 Submarines and send them to the carriers, but make sure they are surfaced and that again free fire and also torpedo firing is OFF.

Once the waves of planes are taken out, line both submarines to the first carriers broadside (if the carrier is not moving its easier) and have both subs fire off their 4 torpedoes each, so that eight torpedoes hit the carrier. Repeat with the other carrier.

If any torpedos miss just get the person on the other team to build a destroyer and hit it with torpedos until 15 have hit.


Take one of your subs and take out the ship yards with your single artillery piece, it is time consuming but wastes time so you can get 15 minutes sub usage.

Once the ship yards go, Achievements ahoy. :D
Medal of honour - 150gp
Once both these scenarios have been completed for both sides the medal of honour will be unlocked.

This just requires you to have unlocked all hit/unit usage and kill medals.

nice guide thanks

MunkeyKungFu 02-20-2007 11:14 AM

Sorry for the lack of updates on this. I will get it finished in the next couple of days but i am hooked on marvel alliance at the moment. I will however get this finished asap. Will get P1n to keep hassling me until it is finished.

hey guys, just thought i would give some imput on the achievements. I am almost 100% sure that the navy cross, distinguished flying cross, and air medal can only be unlocked during single player. If you look at my achievements you will see that i did do the whole solomon island thing and took out 50 planes and 20 ships. But you only unlock the multiplayer ones. Also if you go to the medal section of the game to look at your medals, you will see the three medals say single player only. 03-06-2007 03:35 AM

does this work with two people

USMC Wall 04-19-2007 08:35 PM

I have every achievement aside from the SP campaign completion ones, but I still haven't unlocked the Medal of Honor, any ideas.

GTPBigDog 04-23-2007 02:27 PM

Medal of Honor needs to be done all on one multiplayer mission from what I've read. Heres what you need to do:

15 min sub usage
20 min plane usage
25 min ship usage
15 torpedo hits
100 AA hits
200 Artillery hits

USMC Wall 04-30-2007 06:39 PM

Wow, I guess I'll have to try that then

graemelunn 04-30-2007 10:21 PM

OK, I'll post this here as other people using the Achievement Guide may find any subsequent answers useful.

I need help with the following:

I'm just crap with subs so any help would be great.

2) Final Campaign Mission (on Expert)
The subs I take out with no problems at all. The cruisers that approach from the north and north east I can take out at the expense of my surface fleet (can you actually get these to survive??)
If I make it so far as to attempt an assault on the carrier group to the north, my air wing is eliminated by their destroyer/cruiser escort, meaning I fail horribly.

Any help on the above three would be lovely as I really want to wrap this game up this week. Thanks in advance.

Xc0mmand0 05-02-2007 10:24 PM

i keep getting fucked over on the medal of honor achievement. last time i tried today it didnt give me my aa marksmen despite having 900 aa hits even though only 350 were on planes. this is pissing me off cause its been 4 times now. if someone could show me how to do it properly that has already gotten the achievements, i will be willing to trade achievements in another game.

Fartmaster UEO 05-08-2007 02:08 AM

well did u make sure that all of ur ships were on auto fire off and other thanthat u need to be the one with the most hits.

MonsterShorty 06-08-2007 06:50 AM

Play with a friend an start a game at solomon.
You are P1 and you friend is P2.
Than do the following:

1) P1 makes a sub while P2 makes ships.

P1 pilots his sub and camps outside P2 shipyard and destroys P2 ships (keep count)
with torps achieving 15 hits and 15 mins time.
2) P1 makes a battleship (more artillery) and camps for 25 mins destroying P2 ships
with artillery achieving 200 hits and totaling 10 ships destroyed (including sub kills).
3) P1 stays in battleship while P2 directs waves of unarmed (no bombs/torps) planes at P1 battleship.
P1 destroys 50 planes and achieves 100 AA hits.
4) P1 flys a plane for 20 mins.
5) P1 wins by destroying P2 bases.

Your "strategy" for the Air medal does not work. Me and my friend just did it and I shot down 49 planes by myself with single fighters. No achievement. You want to know why? Because it is a SINGLE PLAYER achievement.

I got my AA marksmanship doing the first level of the singleplayer, i got torpedo marksmenship in challenge mode.

Creech 08-24-2007 01:23 PM

So this achievement guide needs some serious revision. Quite a bit of it is incorrect, and it is less than helpful for certain achievements (for instance, it should explicitly state that for the DFC and AM that you have to personally shoot down the specified number of planes without wingmen, etc.) I could really use some advice on which mission to get the Distinguished Flying Cross and Air Medal on.

Does anyone who has beaten the game want to take a stab at it? I took some notes as I went along that may help. Another point that may be of assistance is identifying what counts as a "ship" for the Navy Cross. For instance, it appears that landing craft and possibly LSTs do not, but verification of that would be useful.

EOU Findub 11-25-2008 05:49 PM

I HIGHLY suggest everyone use Creech's guide. Or if this one helps you, use a hybrid of both but Creech's strategies and methods always have worked for me.

Beau Coup Dinky Dau 11-27-2008 04:38 AM

I've noticed the game locks up about 50% of the time for me in multiplayer. Anyone else have this problem? Has it always been an issue, or has it popped up since the new Xbox interface went online? Or am I the only one experiencing it?
