Welcome back to the explosion filled world of the Renegades as they try to stop and old enemy from putting the world on ice! This guide may or may not be necessary but I thought I'd do it anyways.
Same deal as with the main campaign here, though the enemies seem to be tougher and there seems to be more of them in the levels. It may just be me though, seeing as it's been a while since I last played this. I say drop it to casual and knock 'em out that way since difficulty doesn't play a factor here, it'll save ya some time and aggro.
It may take you less time to go through this depending on the difficulty setting and how good you are, each level takes anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes (give or take) to complete. And difficulty is about the same as the main campaign, some will find is easier some will find it harder. Rolling with your up-graded characters on normal will help you out a lot also.
As always, happy hunting!
Mission 1 - Rescue all the civilians in single player (Coldstrike DLC required)
This is the secondary objective that comes after you’ve destroyed the three big tanks, not the first primary mission you’re given at the beginning of the level. I suggest you go at this one on the casual difficulty, since shortly after the secondary becomes active the platform carrying the Golems (flying drones) will appear and annoy the crap out of you and the civvies are pretty well protected by rocket trucks and other enemies. There are 24 total civvies to recuse, 21 around the environment and three from destroying the platforms that launch the Golems.
You’ve really got to move it to get this one done on time since enemies are everywhere (as well as the civvies) and the counter quickly drops to 3 minutes left to take out your primary target(s). *Remember, if you fail a primary you fail the level and if you go on casual you get not experience points.
* You have to complete this before you’re done defending the plane, before you have to take out the SAM sites.
Mission 2 - Acquire all intel on Coldstrike’s plans in single player (Coldstrike DLC Required)
Secondary on the second mission that’s active at the beginning of the level, I mean as soon as it starts. There’s about 20 of these and they are all on your way to your primary objectives, so you should have plenty of time to get them. Again I suggest you tackle it on casual to save your self some aggro and since difficulty doesn’t matter. You’ll get this shortly after taking out the third jamming station.
* Has to be completed before destroying all the jamming stations.

Mission 3 - Defeat the Panzer Wyrm (Coldstrike DLC required)
Story related and cannot be missed. Defeat Coldstrike and the achievement is yours.
