This game can be rather challenging as you have to complete the game on its hardest difficulty setting, this along with the fact that Kane’s Challenge requires you to play 10 missions using each faction can lead to difficulty on some levels.

Introduction:
Welcome to the Kane’s Wrath Road Map. All of the campaign achievements can be gained in a single playthrough and all of the online achievements can be done with little effort, if boot camp is not skipped immediately then the Hotshot achievement is unattainable.

Step 1: Campaign Playthrough
Before you even place the disk in your console the first thing you should do is be sure not to miss the Hotshot achievement. You get this achievement via skipping the tutorial; it may only be a zero point achievement but it's still worth achieving. Once you have skipped the tutorial you should then go play the tutorial to learn the basics and unlock an achievement.

The campaign on the game is not too difficult however with the bonus objectives some missions can become unmanageable. To minimize on loss of time save often before any major attack so that if it fails you can re-load and try another tactic.

There are 4 missable achievements during the campaign, these are:

Oh, The Hubris
Marv Masher
Thieves In The Temple
Nod Loyalist

To achieve these achievements ensure that you complete all the bonus objectives on the relevant missions, if any of the bonus objectives are missed this can lead to you having to replay the campaign to achieve these achievements.

Step 2: Kane’s Challenge
Kane’s challenge is a series of battles against each of the other factions. You fight one of each other faction which culminates into a final battle versus Scrin and Nod forces. There is no difficulty level on this game mode however it ill get increasingly more difficult as you progress. Each faction has it’s own ladder which results in 90 battles having to be fought. You will learn how to use each faction to their full potential while playing this game mode. For strategies for each faction see the achievement guide.

Step 3: Skirmish
This mode the game is a simple 1 on 1 fight with another AI. You have to win as each of the 9 factions versus any opponent. Using what you learned in Kane’s Challenge to defeat your opponents,. The AI can be set to easy for these achievements. The achievement for defeating a brutal AI can be attained by following the method found in the achievement guide.

Step 4: Online Achievements
The first slew of online achievement are gained by simply playing a game as each faction whether you lose or not does not matter. The achievement guide has a method for quickly achieving these achievements.

The second set of online achievements require that you play in certain game modes these are a 2v2 and 1v1 it does not matter if you lose as you only have to play in the game not win. The final achievement is for using a super weapon during an online game this achieved easily with a boosting buddy, both of you build a super weapon and use it on any part of the enemies base that does not contain their super weapon.

Conclusion:
The bulk of your time will be spent playing the campaign and Kane’s challenge. Although both are manageable aspects of the game, they can become a bit of a grind at times. The difficulty is not too bad however you may sometimes come against battles you can't win. Just relax and don’t get mad at the game there’s always another way to tackle the problem your facing.

From the Ashes...75
Complete Act 1 of the Campaign (2) 
The first act of the game has four missions. These missions are extremely easy, since it is the begining of the game. The best strategy is to spam out Scorpions for the first two missions. After that, spam Stealth Tanks with their Rocket Upgrade. They can destroy ANYTHING. Once you get the Black Hand of Nod, build Purifiers and upgrade their flame throwers with the Secret Shrine. Take the Purifiers and just order them to pass by the enemy units and buildings and enjoy the show. Also, remember to set units to Aggressive Stance.
Fist of the Prophet75
Complete Act II of the Campaign 
Same general tactic for the first part of the game. This act has the bad luck of having two commando missions. Take it slow and steady, if anything, go to gamefaqs and read the strategy faq for the pc. On keys to the Kingdom use the stealth power on the APC and rush for the buildings with engineers inside. On All That Glitters, take it SLOW. Leave one Shadow Strike Force at the spawn and take another to move up on the left. Stay clear and no attack stance and plat the beacons. Plant ONE on the airfield and then destroy it with the Specter. After that, destroy the other two buildings. Also capture ALL the boxes/crates for an achievement. Lastly, for MARV Rising, spam Stealth Tanks with their rocket upgrade.
Ascendancy100
Complete Act III of the Campaign 
By far the shortest and hardest act of the game. The act only has 3 missions, however the last one is extremely hard, especially on hard. The first mission is quite simply. Build a War Factory, followed by Shredder on the top left side of the map, a emissary for the blue tiberium, AA turret next to Shredder, two refineries on the blue tiberium, two Obelisks(one near Blue Tiberium Field other near AA Turret) and spam Stealth Tanks with their upgrade. Liberate the troops for an achievement and destroy the Drone Platform. Build your Redeemer and rape the Scrin Epic Unit. The next mission is so easy thanks to a little glitch. Send your veteran units and kill GDI to take MCV. Use stealth power on MCV and take it to the objective. Done and Done. The last mission is a pain on hard. The key is to NOT capture the objective until you have a pretty large force. Capture one of the objectives when you're ready and attack GDI with your forces. Make sure you have a Redeemer with an engineer inside to keep it alive. Don't worry about the bonus objective, focus on the present objective.

Use a Superweapon in a match 
While playing one of the custom matches, create a super weapon. Build a Tech Center and go build it. Wait several minutes for it to be ready and fire. It should take four minutes to get one up and another seven to fire it. A better strategy is to play a skirmish and destroy everything except for a power plant and use the super power on it.
Great Potential...10
Complete Boot Camp 
After skipping the boot camp, head over to the Boot Camp. It will be VERY boring and quite unnecessary since you most probably already know the controls. Just follow the steps and finish it. Oh, and don't worry, you don't need to do the bonus objective.
True Ascendancy100
Complete all Campaign missions on Hard Difficulty 
Start off on easy to get the bonus objective achievements and get to know the maps, along with the general strategy to pass them. Keep in mind that the game gets harder each difficulty, so try to get plan out your strategy. Even though it takes 5 minutes to save, do so often before a major attack. It would save time from going to the main menu and starting over. Lastly, take advantage of your enemy. If you can capture a base, or expand to a point that something will happen, because of objectives, then do so. Mass out entire armies before completing objectives that require time, such as the last mission. Also remember to build defensive buildings. The game as a knack of not telling you when you're base is under attack and you can find some buildings gone.
Power through Peace30
Complete 'Kane's Challenge' with GDI 
Kane's Challenge consists of 10 missions. In each mission, you'll fight a different sub faction that already has a base operational. You can either steam roll with Mammoths, or do a blitzkrieg type of strategy. Build three refineries on a tiberium field and build an air field along with a barracks. Build ten Hammerheads with AP Bullet upgrades. Garrison the rocket troopers and move them to a corner and move up to the enemy. Take down their power plants, followed by the MCV and enjoy destroying the rest. This strategy will always work, but build some more Hammerheads against the Scrin factions.
 
 
General Tips for Kane's Challenge:

  • 1. It's crucial to capture the Tiberium Spikes. For some odd reason, the AI will focus on capturing them than actually attacking you. So, capturing them will distract the AI for a while so you can set up your base.
  • 2. On most maps, there will be a second tiberium field near your base. Build a surveyor and expand to it. Again the AI will focus on that expansion base than your main base, so build up some defensive buildings.
  • 3. Be careful with your engineers. The AI will target them first than threats.
  • 4. Your first attack might not be a complete success, so build some reserves on stand by.
  • 5. Although the AI barely attacks, build some anti infantry turrets, along with AA guns. The AI will rarely attack with vehicles.
  • 6. Try to not take too long, or the AI will actually start to do something. When you attack them, make sure you destroy their main productive facilities.
  • 7. Be careful with the aggressive stance. For some odd reason, your units cannot process threats, so they'll attack a power plant instead of enemy troops.
  • 8. Have a balanced income and outcome. You don't always want to have 0 credits, rather you want to have some in reserve just in case you need to repair or rebuild.
  • 9. Yes, you can repair Tiberium Spikes.
  • 10. Some times the best strategy is to dig in and defend your expansion and use your super power to destroy their power plants and send in the big guns.
  • 11. Lastly, the Epic unit can and in most cases destroy a base by themselves. Use them wisely.
No School like the Old School30
Complete 'Kane's Challenge' with the Steel Talons 
Refer to Power Through Peace Achievement. The only great difference the Steel Talons have is the Titan, along with the Wolverine. Also, the Rail Gun Accelerator helps out a lot, but be warned: the accelerator takes health fro myour units each time it fires, so upgrade their armor. You can either steam roll with Mammoths, or do a blitzkrieg type of strategy. Build three refineries on a tiberium field and build an air field along with a barracks. Build ten Hammerheads with AP Bullet upgrades. Garrison the rocket troopers and move them to a corner and move up to the enemy. Take down their power plants, followed by the MCV and enjoy destroying the rest. This strategy will always work, but build some more Hammerheads against the Scrin factions.
Eco Warrior30
Complete 'Kane's Challenge' with ZOCOM 
ZOCOM will be the hardest of the three GDI Factions simply because they don't have Rail Guns, but they do have Sonic Grenades, which will rape anything on its path. You can either steam roll with Mammoths, or do a blitzkrieg type of strategy. Build three refineries on a tiberium field and build an air field along with a barracks. Build ten Hammerheads with AP Bullet upgrades. Garrison the Hammerheads with Zone Raiders and move them to a corner and move up to the enemy. Take down their power plants, followed by the MCV and enjoy destroying the rest. This strategy will always work, but build some more Hammerheads against the Scrin factions.
Peace through Power30
Complete 'Kane's Challenge' with Nod 
Build a crane, three power plants, refinery, barracks(two engineers), war factory, operations center, tech center. Purchase the Laser Capacitor upgrade and mass out Venoms. Move them to a corner and move up to their base. Take down the power plants and the rest of the base.
Vanguard of the Prophet30
Complete 'Kane's Challenge' with the Black Hand 
Same strategy as for Nod, but instead of Stealth Tanks, build Purifiers. Upgrade their flame throwers with the secret shrine and set them to aggressive stance. Don't worry about attacking, just send them to walk to the enemy base and the flames will purify the enemy. The only problem this strategy has is its weakness to air attacks, so build several attack bikes with tiberium rocket upgrades.
The Way of the Future30
Complete 'Kane's Challenge' with the Marked of Kane 
The exact same strategy as Nod.
Scrin Overseer30
Complete 'Kane's Challenge' with the Scrin 
Build a crane, three power plants, refinery, barracks(two engineers), war factory, operations center, tech center. Now, you can do two things. Either build a massive Tripod Army, with their shield upgrade, or amass an air armada. The AI doesn't seem to bother with Anti Air guns, or at least, a lot of them. Mass out Devastators with their shield upgrade and set them to aggressive.
Heir to the Blood Cult30
Complete 'Kane's Challenge' with Reaper-17 
The same thing as with the Scrin strategy, but just build a massive army of Reaper Tripods with their upgrade. They can shatter a base quickly, but beware of enemy air craft, so take some anti air vehicles with you. Also, make sure to destroy the husks after your tripods die, or else the enemy will capture them and use them against you.
Master of Manipulation30
Complete 'Kane's Challenge' with Traveler-59 
Same strategy as the Scrin.
Oh... You're Good...30
Defeat a Brutal difficulty AI in a 1v1 skirmish match (4) 
Use the Black Hand for this one. Place 40,000 credits and place a small map, 1v1. Choose to fight against ZOCOM, they are the weakest one out of all the factions(for this achievement). They are slow to build up an army, and will only build ORCAS at the begining. Build a crane, three power plants, refinery, barracks, war factory, secret shrine, outpost, and tech center. Mass out Purifiers and upgrade their flames. Set them to aggressive stance and walk into the enemy base. Also, build the Redeemer and place an Engineer and Black Hand. My first assault consisted of 2 Purifiers and I was able to knock them out, except for an air field. Their Hammer Heads(they had around ten) killed my second attack. Just build some Bikes and to distract. They only built Zone Raiders and that was it. Make sure that they are also set to TURTLE, it will save you a lot of time.

OR:

This is the only buildings your going to need,1 Power Plant,and 2 or 3 Hand of Nod. Dont worry about getting money because you have plenty of it and shouldnt run out. Ok first of all play on the map Backwater Brawl, and set the resources to 40000 and no crates. Then i just set myself up on the bottom right corner, picked the Black Hand, and made the AI Scrin on Brutal AI, on Guerilla. Ok when you start quickly build a power plant and 3 Hand of Nods, you might only need 2 but i made a 3rd just in case. Now start creating like 30 Confessor Cabal in one Hand of Nod and in the other Militant Rocket Squad. Ok once youve got atleast 2 squads of Cabal, send one group to the north and one to the west just to make sure the AI isnt at one of those and if there not then it only leads down to one spot. Now keep producing both rapidly and when you get a pretty huge size army of foot soilders, set them in aggressive mode and double click to the spot were the AI should be, and they should just plow over anything thats gets in there way.
