Secret Achievements


Past Memories10 Destroy both Henry’s ship and Donald’s plane in Pearl Harbor.

In the beginning of the Pearl Harbour mission fly towards the airfield. On the far side of the airfield you'll see a PT boat labeled "PT 29"...this is Henry Walker's boat that he is cruising on in the beginning of the Battlestations Midway game when he is on his way to the USS Phoenix and the game starts. Kill him and a japanese pilot will say something like, "His name was Henry, but this is not his story." Then play through the game until you come to the part where you have to destroy 5 fighters. As soon as that happens start flying as high as you can for about 10 seconds and look to the north...that is the direction Donald's plane came from the 3 times it took me to kill him. The plane is labeled Donald's P-40 I think....try to kill him as fast as you can...what happened to me the first 2 times is my fellow wingman shot him down before I could and you don't get credit. Good Luck.


I’ve Changed My Mind10 Land manually on an airfield or carrier with a kamikaze squadron.

To get this simply take off in a Kamikaze plane but make sure there are 3 in the group, then turn around and land.

To do this simply come in the oposite way to you have taken off and slow right down and your landing gear will automatically drop down all you need to do now is stop the plane safy on the carrier or airfield. As soon as the planes speed gets to 0 you will get the achievement.

Underwater Hideout10 Discover the secret underwater cave of Sydney Harbor.


ok the cave is on the Japanese mission "Attack on Sydney Harbour"

To get this achivevment dont folow the markers set on you map follow the river straight on from the bridge. look on your map at the end of the river you will see a very big rock formation (big light brown patch) at the end of the river. when you get to it you will see a big entrance simply go inside and you will see a billboard with a Japanese flag on it as soon as you get to it you will get the achievement.


Map by boyday

Trainkiller10 Destroy the train with the exploding refinery in Air raid against Indochina.

As the achievement says, you have to destroy the train with a refinery which is located just outside the tunnel that the train is going for. You have a TON of time. I took out the 30 targets and then when the train was next to the 3 big fuel tanks close to the track I targeted them and the train blew up instantly. I had strafed it down to half health but I suspect you don't even have to do that.

Flying Fish5 Land on the water with a seaplane or flying boat.

I got this real easy...just go into a aviation training session (I used the japanese). When its loaded up go to the shipyard and launch a seaplane. Then take off...and then slow right down and land it. As soon as the speed hits 0 the achievement pops.

Tin Can Captain15 Sink 20 enemy ships with your destroyer by using torpedoes.

To get this acheivement use your destroyers ( using torpedoes ) to sink 20 enemy ships.

Easy way to get this set up and island capture game

Broadside Kill15 Sink an enemy ship with your cruiser in 15 seconds.
got this on the 3rd Japanese mission as soon as you start a enemy destoyer will appear on the left of your cruiser simply turn the ship and attack him remember to have your ship side on to the enemy ship so you can use all your guns the enemy destoyer should be destroyed with the 1st salvo but you might have to give it a second.



Death from Below15 Sink an enemy battleship with your submarine.

This can be achieved in the American campaign in the "Battle of Phillipines". At some point during the game you get a sub which has sighted a Battleship and Carrier. Just go sink the battleship and your done.


Deadly Accuracy15 Cause 20 magazine explosions with dive bombers.

Double Whammy15 Damage at least two targets in one bombing run.

Also, a lot of these achievements that have to do with airplane units can be accomplished in the training sessions.

The double whammy was done in this fashion: I took off in a B-17 fortress. I destroyed one of the battleships. When it sinks the ai automatically launches another one which will pass by close to the carrier. Then you do a bomb run perpendicular to the ships and you should hit both ships.



Supply Line5 Use the support manager to successfully send up a plane or request a ship.

Advantage5 Use the naval supply manager to activate a naval supply.

Banzaaai!15 Crash into an enemy ship while flying at least 600km/h.

The Banzaaai! was also done in a training session. Launch the kamikaze as fly as high as you can in altitude. Then nose over in a 90 degree nose dive into a ship. As soon as you nosedive press and hold the Left stick for turbo....you should get the achievement on impact.


Turning Point10 Sink all US Carriers in the Invasion of Midway.

After you have sedtroyed the airfield you will have to destory a carrier and its escorts, simply destroy the escorts and then destroy the carrier.Then you get a message saying there is a second carrier just do the same as before and you should get it.

Preventive Strike10 Sink the US Battleship before the reinforcements arrive in Solomons' Skirmish.

Ok this one is pritty hard to do 1st time, all you have to do if go straight to the target location then you will see a a small cut scene shoing an enemy Battleship coming around a small island. All you have to do is sink it in 4 mins before the reinforcements come but with me they come 30 secs to early dunno why maby glitch
just make sure you sink it before the next cut scene where you get Two battleships.

This is easyest done on the Rookie.

Under Cover of Darkness10 Win a night battle.
Just got this on an Island capture map called Map 08-Coral just simply win the battle and you will get it.

Queen Sacrifice10 Sink the abandoned Hornet in the Battle of Santa Cruz.

Start the mission on rookie. As soon as the game loads and you take control of the cruiser ignore all zero's and gekkos as they are just there to fly around with no anti ship weapons. Focus on anything that says kamikaze. They will attack at first from the Bow of your ship and then from the Starboard bow of your ship (thats right hand front of your ship for you landlubbers) from the direction of the airfield. As long as your ships take no hits (if they do restart mission) when you transition from your ship to a plane the achievement will appear.


Marianas Turkey Shoot10 Destroy 20 enemy planes in the Battle of the Philippine Sea.

For once you get Helcats to fly around with...one of the better fighters. Launch Helcat fighters and select a fighter group that is engaging a enemy squadron. As soon as you shoot down 20 planes the achievement appears.


Zero Damage10 None of the kamikaze planes should hit any of your ships during Divine Winds of Leyte.

For once you get Helcats to fly around with...one of the better fighters. Launch Helcat fighters and select a fighter group that is engaging a enemy squadron. As soon as you shoot down 20 planes the achievement appears


Take No Prisoners50 Destroy every hostile unit in Battle of Santa Cruz on Veteran difficulty.

To get this you MUST destroy all ships on this mission on veteran.
As soon as you start the mission you will have to destroy a carrier and its escorts just sink the carrier.

Then you will have to sink to hornet. After you sink the hornet you will see a fleet of 3 Battleships use your destroyers to launch topedoes at them then move your Battleship in to finish them off then turn your attention to the carrier. Destroy the escorts 1st then sink the carrier you should get the aciement after you sink the last carrier.

just from playing the demo and talking to friends that got the game early these all can be done in 1 or 2 games in multiplayer mostly and it is easier then playing the pc since they dont always do what you want .

I didn't get the achievement for sinking the carrier with my battleship on the midway level of the Japanese campaign. Possibly a glitched achievement, ill try again.

Also playing the Guadalcanal level i finished the level by shooting down all the planes, but the game wouldn't end. Kept on saying that i needed to protect the HQ. Had to quit and restart the level.

Here is a couple of easy achievements that can be boosted:

Queen Sacrifice10 Sink the abandoned Hornet in the Battle of Santa Cruz.

At some point during the Battle of Santa Cruz you get a notification that the Hornet is disabled and you are ordered to sink her with torpedoes (just like in real life). Just select one of the destroyers that is alongside her and fire 2 torpedoes into her. Select the other destroyer on the other side and do the same thing. Ship sinks and achievement appears.

Marianas Turkey Shoot10 Destroy 20 enemy planes in the Battle of the Philippine Sea.

For once you get Helcats to fly around with...one of the better fighters. Launch Helcat fighters and select a fighter group that is engaging a enemy squadron. As soon as you shoot down 20 planes the achievement appears.

Dribblebag: Don't mean to be the perfectionist...but if you want your guide to be submitted so its linked...you may want to peruse through it and fix some of the spelling and grammar errors. It looks great...just needs some cleaning up. If you like I can help you with it.

I had to send up around 50 squadrons to get that for some reason. Just keep crashing all your planes into the sea as soon as they take off and you'll be able to launch more faster. You'll get the achievement about 10 minutes after you get bored!

Exactly like Boyday said. I thought I had launched 50 fighters....but I had gone through all my dive bombers and torpedo planes and had just started launching fighters when the achievement popped. I think its 50 squadrons.

Deadly Accuracy15 Cause 20 magazine explosions with dive bombers.

I've tried this on training mission at first and either was losing count or just not having the patience. Also, have tried to boost this on multiplayer but usually get shot down with flak and was just taking to long. So went back to training missions and got it this way (keep pen and paper ready): Keeping track of my hits I used a helldiver with 1600 lb bomb for max damage assuming I had to sink 20 different ships. I targeted all ships except for sub and AK (sinking AK 3 times ends the training mission). I would target and drop the bomb holding the rt trigger to watch bomb drop and explosion noting on whether or not the magazine would erupt (looks like fireworks going off). Then would target a different ship with full health. By the time I was done targeting all the ships the ships that had been hit before were back at full health. Rinse and repeat. I know I didnt sink 20 ships....so I assume you just have to let the ships heal themselves fully and hit them again. Took about an hour but I got the achievement. Good Luck.

I have tried getting this and it doesn't seem to be unlocking. Is there a particular mode/map people have used succesfully to unlock this?

I got this one on the last campaign mission for the japs. One of the carriers you get launches nothing but kamikazes....launch one...as soon as all 3 planes are in the air....take control and land (make sure your going in the right directions....approach the CV from the south)...as soon as the plane reaches the fantail of the ship the achievement should pop.

my question on the zero damage achievement. Is it ok for the kamikaze planes to crash into the ships after you shot them? Or should you destroy the planes completely?

I got this first time up by just playing that particular mission on Rookie. Concentrate on nothing but kamikazes. All the other planes are just fighters which serve nothing but to distract you in my opinion. The Kamikazes pretty much approach from 2 directions...your bow and from the airfield. Once you get those figured out you can pretty much anticipate and destroy. Good Luck!!!

Past Memories Achievement

can anyone be more clear on how to get this achievement ? The pt boat is 23 not 29. Where is Donald's P-40 ? I've flown all over but haven't seen it yet.

The PT Boat is PT 23, and you can kill it as soon as the mission starts. I've always found Donald's plane right above the airfield when you begin the final part of the mission. Just make sure you wait around the airfield for about a minute before you shoot down your fifth enemy plane. Also, your AI allies can shoot him down, thus preventing you from getting the achievement.

As far as I know you just have to get all main missions as well as secondary and hidden - that's it. I've done the first two missions as Japs so far and both are gold.

To obtain a gold medal, you must:

1. Complete all primary objectives
2. Complete all secondary objectives
3. Complete the hidden objective

And you must accomplish these three things during the same playthough on each mission. For example, to earn a gold on IJN Mission 1:

1. Primary objectives: Destroy enemy planes on the ground, then make two successful bomb hits on the USS Nevada, then make two successful torpedo strikes on the USS West Virginia, then shoot down 5 enemy planes

2. Secondary objective: Destroy the USS Monaghan before it sinks the Japanese Midget sub

3. Hidden objective: Destory the USS Neosho and USS California at the same time, with one bomb.

Doing steps 1, 2, and 3 in one sitting will earn you a gold medal.
