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.

There are 12 achievements with a total of 200 points

  • Capture five flags

    See "Veteran."

  • Be in the best squad on all three maps

    This achievement is temperamental, but it still is attainable. Most of the time you will not get the achievement after you fulfill the requirements for it. If you are playing in a squad and you get the top squad award in-game for each map then you still might not get the achievement.

    Most of the time people get the achievement while they are playing alone, not in a squad. If you can't get the achievement while playing in a squad, then leave the squad and keep playing and you should unlock the achievement. No one really knows what makes the achievement unlock though.

    A discussion on this matter can be found here.

    Possibly fully glitched for some players.

  • Play one hundred matches

    If you win or lose, all you have to do is play one hundred matches.

  • Defend five flags

    After you capture any flag, wait at the base, and as enemies come, kill them. Hide behind a wall and crouch to be covered. If you also wanted to also get the "Attacker" achievement, you can capture five flags, then wait and kill any enemies that try to attack the base. A good strategy is to go to a base with a yellow X over it because this base is a point of interest, which means many people will be going for it. Take a tank or other vehicle for extra safety and either capture the flag and defend or defend one of your already captured bases. If the +3 defend bonus when you kill the enemy does not appear, it will not count as a defend.

  • Get one kill playing as each class

    You need to get a kill as a scout, infantry, and rifleman. This does not have to be done all in one round. Use the sniper for the scout, rifle for the infantry, and the sub-machine gun for the infantry. Either sneak up behind the enemy or catch them in the middle of combat to get a quick and easy kill.

  • Fly a plane for 10 minutes

    Get into the plane at either the carrier or the airfield. Then just fly around and try not to get shot down. This does not have to be in the same round, you fly an overall of ten minutes.

  • Get one kill with car, tank and plane

    This is one of the harder achievements because you have to get a kill in the plane. First in the car, either run someone over or shoot them with the machine gun on top of the car. In the tank, either run someone over or shoot at them with the coax gun or barrel. The plane kill can be considered either the bombing raid or fighter plane. If you use the bombing raid, which is easier for people who can not fly, just hit an area where there are many enemies. In the fighter jet, kill an enemy plane or drop a bomb on the enemy. This does not all need to be done in one round.

  • Use the parachute once (2 seconds)

    Once you get into a plane at either the carrier or airfield, take off and get high in the air. You need to be at least 100 feet above the houses. This way the parachute will not fail and it will definitely be more than two seconds. Jump out of the plane by pressing and then press to deploy your parachute. Do this once and the achievement will unlock.

  • Win once on every map as any team

    You have to win once on every map. To win:

    • Capture flags
    • Kill the enemies
    • Prevent the enemies from capturing your bases
  • Play 30 matches

    See "Tour of Duty II."

  • Cap 25 enemy flags

    To capture a flag, you have to be the first person to arrive at a flag and wait until it becomes your flag. You can tell if the flag is almost yours by the ticker at the bottom of the screen. If it stops it means an enemy is nearby and needs to be eliminated before you capture the flag. If the ticker at the bottom is completely red, the flag is enemy, if the ticker is completely blue, it is your own flag. Eliminate all enemies and take the flag. You can not assist - you must capture the flag for it to count. Being in a tank can help protect you from enemy fire.

  • Melee kill one enemy player

    You must press when you are near an enemy. When you kill them with the melee weapon the achievement will unlock. It only takes one hit to kill the enemy.
