They are currently located in the North-East. You must destroy the location to be able to take over the bridge. Destroy all the WarMonkeys in the region. You'll start at the South-East. Now, put your soldiers in your Protector unit and go to the North. If you go to the right of the map, you'll see a hill about mid-way there. Hide your units behind it. The enemy troop should be to the North-East of the bridge. Don't forget that it's the main target on this mission. You'll need to destroy it. Just take your Geezer tank and try to go to the opposite side of the river. You must be very careful here, you might run into the enemies. To avoid this, use your mad to go to the North and use the hill as a shield. However, once you reach the troop, they will open fire at you and it's hard to avoid this. Just shoot at it until it's destroyed while hoping that your tank doesn't get destroyed before! When this is done, go to the South towards the bridge. Aim for the Ranger Missiles and destroy them quickly if you don't want to die a very painful death! Kill the troops as well. There are still a few troops around the bridge but now that you've already destroyed most of them, the rest is a piece of cake...Just make sure your tank insn't blown up in the process. You'll complete the mission once you've destroyed all the troops ------------------- SEARCH AND RESCUE ------------------- MISSION NOTES: 3 snipers have crashed to on their way to intercept 3 tanks and to free some hostages. You have to find them and help them. You will have a Santini for this mission. It will come from the North-Ouest. You'll quickly notice the soldiers to the right of the first hill (wonder now they ended here!). Take them and go to the East (you should be on the border of the map when you've stopped!). From where you are, you'll see 3 tanks along with 2 Specters and some enemy units guarding these. Don't worry about these for now and go up the hill you'll see on the border. First, you should take a sniper with you. Don't worry about losing him though; I managed to kill all the enemy snipers with him alone as the hill will protect you. There are 8 enemy sniper in all, make sure you kill all of them (forgetting one of them can prove fatal here!!). Once they're all dead, take the Specters with you. But you msut do the following stuff quite quickly or else, it won't work and you'll lose them in the process. Take them and go to the middle of the map. You see, the enemy tanks have gone to the South so you'll be able to move. Once you reach the middle of the map, you'll see the tanks waiting for some soldiers. Try to get as close to them as possible while ensuring that they can't aim for you directly from their current position. Destroy the tanks (it may take some time). Note that these will continue to move but you must keep on shooting at them even so! When they start going towards the hostages, follow them and keep shooting at them. The trick here is to destroy them before the reach the camp. By doing so, you're eliminating the bigger threats. And once they're destroyed, it's again a piece of take to kill the plain soldiers guarding the hostages. Mission complete! ------------------ CLOAK AND DAGGER ------------------ MISSION NOTES: You have to free the hostages by destroynig the generator so that the alarm doesn't give you away. You must then go to a given location. You're dead if the enemies spot you. Actually, that's one of the hardest missions on the game. I played it 5 times before completing it successfully. You'll take control of a sniper. At the beginning, you'll be in a camp. Go straight into the corridor (take care of the guards first)! Once you reach the wall, turn to the left a first time and then once more to the left to reach the middle of the enclosure. You'll see the generator, keep shooting at it until it's destroyed. Go on rapidly to the right until you see some hostagesbehind an energy barrier. You need to go on the grey spot you'll see here to desactivate the barrier (you can't miss it). The hostages will then be free. Take one of the tanks and kill the guards around. Next put your soldiers in your Protector (good ol' Protector!!) and position the 3 vehicles on the road. Take one Geezer and go down the road alone (leave the others where they are). Go on until you reach a bridge. You'll see 2 enemies further down on your radar. You need to be careful of those, they're really dangerous. In order to defeat them, go to the other side of the bridge to lure them while shooting at them. Shoot at them, while keeping on going backwards on the bridge, until you've finally crossed it. DON'T LET THEM GET CLOSE TO YOU!! Once you're on the other side, go to the side of the bridge quickly. They will go towards the prison to take it over (talk about AI here...), leaving you free to shoot them in the back. It's easy to destroy them now. Then, take the other units (those you left behind) and go on towards the second bridge. Once you've crossed it, you'll meet other units facing some enemy troops. Help them! Take a Zippy (choose one who's been badly hit) and send it to the left near the Solar Beam. This will cause the tanks there to go away. Choose a sniper and go towards these but keep on the left side of the map. Use him to destroy the helicopter you'll see in the distance (use the map). You msut act quicky from now on. Take a Geezer and go on the left side. Keep on going until you reach the enclosure (a bit a after the enemy's position). Choose another tank and do the same thing again. Destroy the targets here. Once you've destroyed them, everything will explode, along with your tank, in 5 seconds. You'll be completing the mission as the other untis will be waiting for you to the South. Mission complete! -------------- ONE FINE DAY -------------- MISSION NOTES: Your first battle against the Mantai. You must investigate a deserted base located in the middle of the map. Send the empty Protector on the road and you'll see some enemies fighting. Just watch them and once they're dead, move all your units and position them so that just below the wall. Take the Protector again and follow the road to the deserted base. You will be attacked by some Mantai if you go further to the South. Leave the Protector there to lure the Mantai and move the rest of your units. When the Mantai start appearing, just attack them. After some time, they will go to the centre of the base and will try to regroup. Follow them (they won't pay attention to you) and kill all the enemies you find. Finally, kill those you have been following...It's very easy! ------------------- BRICK IN THE WALL ------------------- MISSION NOTES: You must proctect some trucks which follow the road to the left. There are 10 in all and you must make sure that at least 5 reach the destination. You'll start with a Corbett and a Reaper. Move them to the enemy base located on the right (it's marked with an X). The Corbett should normally arrive first. Position it near the top and shoot at the rocks above the door when the tanks appear. The rocks will block the passage! Now, move the Corbett to the other side of the bridge located to to the South-West. Take the Reaper et shoot at the tanks and the Firemonkeys which you see. The trucks will then appear, protect them from the enemy. It doesn't matter if you lose the Reaper here if you've done everything I've said so far (I finished the mission with only the Corbett!). Move the Corbett to the North and kill the soldiers before they attack the trucks. Once they're all dead, do to the upper left and wait for the trucks to appear. This shouldn't take long. As soon as they appear, some soldiers will come show up. Kill these too. You should have at least 7 trucks at this point. If you have more than that, you should be writing this FAQ :) Another group of soldiers (I still don't know how to call them- Missile Soldiers?) will show up near the end of the road. Kill 'em all! When the trucks finally arrive, you'll get the Zippy, Geezer and Specter and some soldiers (for the sacrifice? =D ). You will be attacked by some Mongrels and soldiers now. They're are also some tanks but they's shooting you from the bridge, the cowards!! Destroy the Mongrel and the soldiers but make sure that you still have the bigger machines and that they're not hit. Once this is done, take a Specter and go to the North, then East. You should be on the hill now. From here, destroy the tanks (very easy from this position). The mission will be over once you've destroyed them all. ------------------ NIGHT OF MADNESS ------------------ MISSION NOTES: Use your Protector and your Santini (Corleone!? :D ) to rescue 5 groups of soldiers. Firstly, I don't think it is necessary to rescue all of them to complete the mission. I managed to rescue only 4 and still moved on to the next mission. Send the Protector to the upper right and take the soldiers. Then, go on to the South. While they're moving, take the Corle...sorry, Santini and kill all the Mantai you find below you. You should then regroup your unit in the lower right, all of them! Next, send your Protector to the upper left, there's another group of soldiers here. There are more soldiers to the South but they're being attacked, so you should just forget about them unless you're interested in losing your Santini! Once you've gotten the soldiers at the upper left, take them to the base in the middle (I do think the bases are always in the middle now!). Go back to the lower right to where the others are wiating for you and take them to the base too (you'll have to repeat the process twice to move all of them though). Once all your troops are in the base, you'll get a Specter and some tanks. You must kill all the Mantai with those. I did this using only the Spectre. Just shoot the Mantai from a distance and the mission will be over quickly. -------------------------- GARRISON DUTY IN CHERTON -------------------------- MISSION NOTES: You have 12 soldiers and a Reaper and must protect the townspeople from an attack perpetrated by the WarMonkeys. The mission is over if all the townspeople perish. At the beginning of the mission, a truck will be coming from the South. In fact, there are some Mantai behind it (they keep getting brighter and brighter =D). Take your Reaper and go towards the South entrance. Kill the Mantai as quickly as possible. A neat way to do so is to use your mines against them. Once the truck is safely in town, the driver will inform you that lots of Mantai are coming!! You'll then be notified that you'll obtain help from the air but that this will take some time, so you'll have to do something during that time. There's no real strategy to this mission. BTW, it's probably the most difficult one in the whole game. I find it easier to kill the Mantai and to keep them from further progressing into the town. Thankfully, they attack from only one direction but they keep on changing so you'll have to be careful. You should at all cost protect the town entrance with mines. The Mantai will keep on coming in numbers to make matters worse. Try to know from where their attack is coming and place your mines them, this should take care of them. If a Mantai avoids your traps and manages to enter the town, choose some soldiers to kill him. Choose 3 soldiers to make things easier but make sure that the Mantai cannot harm them too much. After a lot of time (half an hour, I think), the airplanes will arrive and will take care of the rest. This mission sure is a tough one! Good luck... ------------ BIG BATTLE ------------ MISSION NOTES: Time now for the big battle!! Don't fret, if you managed to complete Garrison Duty in Cherton, this one is easy...Note that the mission will end if your tank is destroyed!! You'll be controlling a Panzer Zwei Plasma (cool name!). Don't worry about the rest, they can take care of themselves (hmmm...a boost in AI!?). You'll begin on the lower right of the screen. From where you are, go to the South of town and destroy the tanks which will be moving alongside some FireMonkeys. Then, try to destroy all the bigger units. It will take some time but doing this makes things easier. Don't worry about the little ones for now. When you engage in a battle, make sure that your troops don't take too much damage. Also, even if some enemies are far from where you are, go after them and destroy them. The mission will be over once all the enemy troops are destroyed. NOTE: They will retreat to the other side of the bridge and you'll win if they do so but it's more fun to destroy them right away :) You can now play as the WarMonkeys. ============================================== WARMONKEYS ============================================== ----------------- CREEK NO PADDLE ----------------- MISSION NOTES: You now control the WarMonkeys. The game gets much harder here as the WarMonkeys don't have that much equipment. Learn your enemy's weakness and use it to your advantage. Take the helicopter and go to the South until you see a group of tanks being attacked. You can't save them. The enemy units are destroying the tanks and moving to the right to engage battle with the other tanks. Here, you can use your helicopter and throw mines at them, try to take away most of them. You just have to fly above them et throw your mines on them. Follow them and just keep pummelling them with mines. They won't do anything to you. Next, choose 2 tanks and place them to the right of the base. Take your helicopter above the hill and you'll see more units here. Avoid their attacks and destroy them. You must destroy the 2 last ones as these can easily destroy your helicopter. Once all the tanks are destroyed (it shouldn't be that difficult if you've followed my advice), the mission ends. ---------------- DOCKYARD BRAWL ---------------- MISSION NOTES: Again those damn Mantai! Take your soldiers and move them towards the lost units. These are located to the right of your own location. Your soldiers will liberate them and you'll now have the means to defeat the Mantai. The Mantai should now start attacking you. Take a FireMonkey and kill them as soon as they arrive (FireMonkeys are grat against them). The Mantai will just keep on coming in great numbers and will attack you like mad. At one point, you'll get an unexpected shield when the truck on the side of the enclosure falls down. This will make it harder for the Mantai to pass through and thus make your job easier. Just keep one of your tanks at the back to take care of any stray Mantai. The Mantai will soon be unable to pass through and reach you. Now, take all your units and go on to the left through the newly-formed barrier. This will be tough though as the Mantai will be waiting for you at various points on the road. Use your FireMonkeys if you still have them. They will take care of the on-coming Mantai and protect the rest of your troops. When you reach the end of the road, you'll see the SL18 which you need to destroy. Use your tanks to destroy them and destroy the whole building. But don't forget to place your FireMonkeys so that they can protect your troops from more Mantai (they'll still keep coming). The mission is over once the building is destroyed. -------------- BRIDGE RACER -------------- MISSION NOTES: This one is fairly easy. Use your Protector to capture Professor Hjoak. Also, don't forget that you don't have a lot of time for this mission, so you need to hurry! First things first, capture the enemy's Protector. There's a small base to the North of your lacation, destroy it to do so. Once you have the Protector, move your soldiers onto it and go to the North. Send your tanks to fight against the enemy tanks further to the North. But keep a tank alongside the Protector just in case. Cross the bridge. Once you've crossed the bridge, you'll be attacked. This is an easy battle but you need to be quick. You now need to go to the South-East and cross the bridge you'll see there. But you'll meet another group of tanks there. And this will be really tough. Use everything you have to destroy them. You need to have at least one tank left when you cross the bridge. Once you've crossed the bridge, go onto the path which leads to the North. You will be attacked along the way, destroy these (concentrate on the tanks and don't worry about the others, it'll save you time). You'll eventually end up in the South part of the island. You'll be attacked again. Cross the bridge as quickly as possible. From there, hide where you can (you can do so to the North, the enemies will find it difficult to aim you there) and destroy the enemy troops. When they're all destroyed, go to the South. There, you'll see a building. Professor Hjoak is in it. You will also encounter another bunch of tanks there and some other enemies which are fairly easy. Destroy them all to capture Professor Hjoak and you'll have completed the mission. -------------------------- RESCUE IN MOUNT GRISHOLM -------------------------- MISSION NOTES: You need to control an enemy base. This mission is a bit difficult since you'll be facing a bunch of enemies on the way. From where you begin, move all your units along the road. When you reach the end of the second bend, you'll see small grey squares. If you touch these, they'll explode and kill your units. In order to avoid them, use the passage by the main road. You'll meet some enemies on the way but they're easy to defeat. You'll eventually reach a bridge. Beware though as it's protected by a turret. Destroy it first and then enter the town. Go to the South-East when you're inside to get your soldiers. Put the latter in your Spume and head for the enemy headquarters along the road to the West of the town. You'll reach a bridge. Again, destroy the turret first. But don't move your soldiers first, there's another turret at the top of the headquarters. Send your strongers unit to care take care of it first. Once it's finally destroyed, continue along the road. When you reach a hill, place all your units by the hillside and just remain there. Eventually, some enemy tanks will appear. Destroy these. Once they're all destroyed, the base is yours and the mission is complete. ---------------- GROWING BATTLE ---------------- MISSION NOTES: Control 3 bases and free more units. Take a Mongrel and go to the southern wall of the first base. You'll be attacked by a bunch of Corbetts. Destroy these (it's really easy with the Mongrel) and return to your initial location. You'll then be attacked by some Geezers. Destroy these too. Once the battle's over, go into the base and stop in the first passage. The units are just here but they're well-guarded by a Zwei Plasma Panter. It's difficult to beat but if you follow my advice, you'll destroy it without much damage. First choose one of your soldiers and send it forward. Needless to say, he will be killed as soon as he steps into the zone. Now, while it's loading its weapons, send your tanks forward and shoot at it. When it's finished loading, retreat to your initial position before it gets the chance to destroy the tanks. Repeat this until it's destroyed. Then, take all the units and go on to the second base. You will be attacked but the enemies are easy now that your troop's been increased. When you reach the base, you'll meet some Corbetts and soldiers. Destroy these. Use the same strategy as against the Panther and it should be quite easy. When you head for the third base, you will now have an impressive troop and this makes things very easy for you. Once you've killed all the enemies, follow the path until you complete the mission. ---------------- LIFE'S A BEACH ---------------- MISSION NOTES: Certainly the best mission in DoW. You only have a FireMonkey in this one. From whre you begin, go to the North and wait until a Protector arrives. Try to destroy it before the soldiers come out of it. If they ever manage to get out, just keep shooting at them to kill them. Once they're killed, you'll see 5 huge rocks all around you. If you move all around the zone, you'll also see 5 squares with steam coming out of them. Now, use the Firemonkey to put a boulder on each square. Now, follow the path. You'll then see a wall with a couple of turrets and a barrier protecting it. Go straight to the wall. As you do so, one turret will shoot at you but since you are now close to the wall, it will only manage to destroy the other one. Now, go to the boulder in front of the wall while avoiding the turret's attacks. Move it onto the grey square and you'll hear an explosion. The barrier will vanish and the turret will be out of order. Now, go into the base to the South-West until you see some prisoners. Free them. You'll be attacked by the missile-soldiers along the way. Use your FireMonkey to kill them quickly. Just move on along the wall while shooting at them as soon as they appear. Then, free the soldiers and go on to the volcano (it's in the centre of the map). From there, destroy the enemy troops. The mission is complete once they're all destroyed. ---------------- KIRANDA CANYON ---------------- MISSION NOTES: A quite difficult one. You need a good strategy for this one. Also, there are a lot of enemies in this mission and you need to kill them all. From where you start, take your tanks and send them to the base which is located to the North, behind the hill. The base is protected by Geezers and Corbetts and you'll battle these. Destroy them all (all of them!!). Once you've done this, you'll be attacked by other units which you need to kill to be able to move on. Continue in the base and destroy the building to finish your first objective. Your troop will increase with 3 more units at this point. Take these and shoot the turrets on the hill. Stay out of range and destroy these. Some soldiers and tanks will try to attack you from the North, so dispatch some of your units to take care of these. Once the turrets are destroyed, go to the West until you can aim at the next turrets. Destroy these and use all your troops to destroy the base itself after this. There are more turrets to the upper-left, destroy these too. Once they've disappeared, kill the enemies present in the region to complete the mission. ------------ BIG BATTLE ------------ MISSION NOTES: The last WarMonkey mission. You control a helicopter while your other units stay in the middle of the map. You must simply drop mines with the helicopter to kill the Mantai. First, drop mines to the North of your units. Then, note the direction taken by the Mantai and drop mines on them. Just keep doing this. Don't wander off around the map in case your mines are used and the Mantai can move. You must absolutely stay around the troops. and continue on dropping mines. There is no real strategy to this mission. If the Mantai manage to pass and attack the building, go above it and drop mines as they enter. Your other units will try to stop them but they will eventually fail if you don't help them. The helicopter is the main unit here. The mission is complete when all the Mantai are killed. You can now play as the Mantai. ============================================== MANTAI ============================================== ------------ MANTAI 101 ------------ MISSION NOTES: Your first Mantai mission. You need to free your troops and kill the enemies. Go to the East and you'll see soldiers. You can try and kill them first but with only a Mantai, it is difficult. Instead, go further to the East until you see a Firebug. Now that you have the Firebug, you can kill the soldiers. Next, go to the North until you see the lava and stop it. Go up the path and destroy the turrets. Once this is done, move on to the Psychoraptor. Next, go the the upper-left of the map. You'll see some more turrets and the soldiers armed with missiles them. Destroy them all (my advice is to use the Firebug against the turrets and the Psychoraptor against the soldiers). Once you've gotten the Rhinoid, go to the East until you again see a couple of turrets and other enemy troops. Choose a Mantai which you won't be needing and send it towards the 4 Raptors there. Then, use the Raptors to kill the soldiers and the Firebug to destroy the turrets (or you can still use the other strategy but this one is better). Once this is done, move all your troop towards the East and the mission will come to an end. ------------------ ICE CAMP ASSAULT ------------------ MISSION NOTES: The second Mantai Mission. And a very esay one. Choose all your units and go to the West. You'll see a bridge guarded by 2 soldiers. Take a Firebug to kill them but don't cross the bridge yet. You'll see more enemies come, just take them out with the Firebug. You can then cross the bridge. Go to the centre of the map until you see a radar and a bunch of tanks. Take out those first and then, destroy the radar. Then, go along the path leading to the North until you reach the island to the left. Destroy the enemy units you'll encounter there. After that, there's a village. Enter it and destroy everything using all your units. The mission ends once the whole village is destroyed. And if you've managed to finish this mission, you've just completed the whole game. Of course, there are various other strategies for each mission, but following these will ensure you an easy game. *=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=* ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS *=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=* - Silicon Dreams for making this game. - GameFAQs for posting this FAQ. *=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=* END OF FAQ *=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*
