Defense Grid: The Awakening

Defense Grid: The Awakening Achievements

Master Strategist

Earn a gold medal on at least 40 Story or Challenge mode missions in any campaign.  
To get a gold medal in your missions you must earn the required amount of points and still have all your cores at the end of the mission. If you find yourself short a couple points during the endgame results, remember that the amount of resources you have add to your points, so if you can build a tower or upgrade less, then do so.

Extra missions like Poison Core, Grinder, Relaxed, etc. count toward this achievement as well as the default Story and Story Challenge.

Look here for examples on how to achieve a gold medal on your story missions

Sweet game! I enjoyed it.

Achievement difficulty 5/10.
Even with a video to guide you, it takes time and work, but it's fun.

I recommend this set of videos. He's got that Netherlands accent and he knows what he's doing. Easy to follow, too.
Thanks "SilverMagic".

Here is a guide made after the latest patches so these should work for most:

Thanks to Herzfinsternis. He also walks you through everything so it is easy to follow.
