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


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

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.

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.



Munkey out

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.

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?
