Battlefield 1943 is everything Battlefield 1942 was for the PC, but with a prettier engine to make this one of the best looking downloadable games on the Marketplace. BF 1943 is an online-only game where players are pinned as either American or Japanese militants, and their mission is to take over the enemy base no matter what the cost.
There are 3 personnel in the BF 1943 library: Rifleman, Infantry, and Scout. Each has their specialty, and each have their weaknesses. Play around with each class and find out which one works best for you, and then learn to play as a team. This is definitely a team-based game and working together is a must.
Step 1: Airplanes, Tanks, and Jeeps!
This comes first, because you are already tempted to fly them and drive them. Get these achievements out of the way, so you can focus on the actual gameplay. You'll want to fly around for a while to build your 10 minute timer up to unlock "Milkrun", shoot down at least enemy planes, and then when you feel daring, take a jump out of your plane with and then press to deploy your parachute. Make sure you're high enough to at least float for two seconds to get the achievement. Go ahead and find a jeep or tank. Even jump in with someone in either, as long as you get a kill in both vehicles, it will count towards the "Motorman" achievement.
Step 2: Ground Work
As I said in the Introduction, play as each of the classes to get a feel for which one you like most, but also to get at least one kill with each class. It doesn't matter how, as long as you use one of their three weapons (2 guns, 1 melee). Speaking of melee, if you get ONE, you'll receive a 20 achievement! It sounds easier than it is, but it is still pretty easy. Just press when you're close enough to an enemy to melee.
Another couple of achievements require you to capture 5 and 25 flags. You can actually gain flag captures while in vehicles as well, so don't feel like you have to exit a vehicle if you're just driving around capturing. Defending 5 flags is also an achievement, which is actually quite easy to get. When you spawn at a base, just wait for an enemy to come in and take them out. Rinse and repeat.
Step 3: Team Work!
The last couple achievements require you to both play well and win. "Best Squad" is earned when you are on the best squad on all three maps, although some people seem to have problems unlocking this. This means you and three other people (Your squad) excelled and have come out of the match as the best, even if your whole team wasn't. However, you do want to win on each of the three maps as well, so you can unlock 'The Pacific Campaign".
If any of these achievements sound difficult or seem like they might take too long, well, that's okay, because the last two achievements you'll more than likely get will be "Tour Of Duty I" and "Tour of Duty II". After finishing your 100th game and unlocked "Tour Of Duty II", I'm pretty sure all of the other achievements will be finished.
Battlefield 1943 is actually a very simple 200 game, and with 100 matches to play in order to get 200 , I'm pretty sure you'll have plenty of chances to win on each map, kill with each class, get a melee kill, be on the best squad on the three maps, kill with each vehicle, and capture/defend enough flags.
