Chapter 13 - Purple Heart Lane - D-Day +4

This is your first time with a Sniper Rifle. You zoom in the same way you do with a normal gun, click down on the right analog stick. Remember to crouch for a more steady shot. You are also in command of two teams: Assault and Fire.

Advance to Bridge 4 on the causeway

Follow your Arrow to the half-walls overlooking the swamp, where all of your men are located. There are two groups of enemies firing on you. Use your Sniper Rifle to pick them off. When it's clear, follow the Arrow into the swamp and be on the lookout for a few more Germans hiding on the left, behind a dirt wall. Keep following the Arrow and you'll soon see more enemies coming from the WSW. Take cover behind the dirt wall and pick off these enemies behind the fence. Continue to follow the Arrow, going under the bridge and meeting up with more Allied troops.

At this point you need to make it all the way down the causeway (roadway). Gather your men to you. Between the road and the swamp there are several large brush-covered dirt mounds that you can take cover behind. The German reinforcements will keep coming, so you can't shoot everybody. First, snipe any Germans that you see from a safe position. Then, have your men fire on anybody else that you see. Next, run like heck to the first brush-covered dirt mound and take cover. Again, peek out and pick off any Germans that you see. Repeat this as you head down the road. You don't need to shoot everybody, just enough of them so that you can make it to the end of the road. When you get to the end, near the gate, you'll get a cutscene and you'll be told that you have to take out a MG position.

First, however, there are more regular Germans to kill before you can go through the gate. Leave your men behind, you don't need them for this section and they'll just die anyway. Head West, down the small hill, and to the North you'll see two sets of Germans in the distance. Pick all of them off. Next, look to the SW and you'll see a set of Germans on the right and the MG on the left. Stay crouched behind the rocks and pick off the two non-MG Germans. To take out the MG, you're going to flank it. If you're at the rocks, facing West, look to the NNW and run to the large tree. From the tree head West along the fence line and follow the irrigation ditch to the sandbags where the MG is located. Shoot the German manning the gun, then head back to the gate to end your mission.

Chapter 14 - Cole's Charge - D-Day +5

Follow the Yellow Arrow to Lt. Colonel Cole and the rest of the gang. Cole will brief you on the assault on the farmhouse and that you'll use artillery smoke as cover. You're back to having a normal Rifle and you're still in command of the two teams.

Capture the Ingouf Farmhouse

Follow your arrow and make your way to the hay bails in front of the small mound/hill. At the hill, go left as far as you can and take out the two Germans behind the dirt wall. Flank them from the left if necessary. Follow the fence line heading West so that you can flank more enemies, including the MG. After taking out the MG from the dirt wall near the fence line, head to the hay bails to the West where you'll see the Farmhouse. From the hay bails, have your two Teams fire on the two German teams while you head to the left, taking cover behind the brush and picking off anybody in the barn.

Go into the barn and call your Teams to you. If you still have one enemy left to kill, it's probably the other MG gunner. Keep your Teams in the barn and head to the MG gunner and you can find a dirt wall behind the gunner where you can attack him. After he's dead, meet up with Lt. Colonel Cole, near the barn.

Secure the area behind the farmhouse

The gate near Lt. Colonel Cole will open after the cutscene. Grab your men together and enter the paddock where there are many stone half-walls. Watch as the Germans come in and start shooting them. You can easily have each of your Teams fire on each of the enemy teams and then flank them from the right by crouching and moving along the wall. After the first two sets of enemies are killed, move forward and take up position behind the next half-wall. Again, have your Teams suppress the enemies while you move along the right side and take up position behind the wall there. From here you can shoot at the first set of enemies from the side. They may move, but just keep moving forward and picking them off when their heads pop up. Also, be aware of reinforcements setting up behind the fence line to the South. There are three of them. Stay behind your wall and pick them off, too.

When they're all dead, follow your Yellow Arrow (crossing the road) and you'll see three more groups of enemies. Have your men set up behind the dirt wall and have them fire on the left two groups of enemies. Then, make a run for the left group of enemies (to the North), running to the downed tree near the pit in the ground. From here, take out the enemies to the East then kill the guys to the North.

Go to where the North enemies were and from here you can safely shoot the men manning the MG from behind the dirt wall. When the MG is gone, call your men to you. Follow the Arrow, heading along the path and you'll see some enemies to the NE, across the pond, and several more enemies directly to your right. First, kill the enemies to your right, the ones hiding behind the barrels and firewood. Then, run there with your team and use it for cover as you and your Teams fire on the enemies across the pond, now to the North of you.

To the East you'll see one more red enemy icon. This is the MG on the road. Follow your Arrow to it, and you'll end up behind it, where you can easily kill this last enemy. Afterwards, meet up with Mac to end the mission.

Chapter 15 - Ripe Pickings - D-Day +5

You have to help Lt. Combs and bring him back in a "Saving Private Ryan" kind of mission. You only have your Fire Team as Mac needs your Assault Team. You have your normal Rifle and your Sub-Machine Gun.

Find and rescue Combs

Take your men and follow your Arrow through the gate and half-wall field that you went through earlier. When you get to the road head SSW (the only direction you can go). When you get to the orchard wall, head right (NW) and follow the wall all the way to the house. Go between the shed and the house and go to the barrels. Have your team fire on the enemies behind the wall while you shoot the two nearby Germans to the South. Then, continue looking South and fire on the Germans further away. Then, focus on the MG in the corner of the house on the second floor and fire on him to kill him. Next, fire on the enemies behind the wall that your Team is still firing on and kill them off.

Head to the house, following your Arrow. Keep heading past the house along the path. Soon, you'll see Lt. Cole in front of you firing on some enemies. Join him behind the dirt wall. From here, have your team fire on the enemies in front of you, then you can flank around right taking cover behind the wagon and barrels. Fire on the enemies from the side, then move out to the road and take out the enemies behind the wagon from just near the other enemies behind the dirt wall. Next, take out the enemies behind the dirt wall by charging them with your Sub-Machine Gun, tossing a grenade at them, or issuing an "Assault" order. Finally, you'll have a mortar team protected by sandbags. There are three Germans there. Toss a grenade in their direction then, if there are any survivors, pick them off. Or, if you want, issue an "Assault" order and have your troops take care of the enemies.

When everybody is dead, go back to Lt. Combs. He tells you that you need to go back through the orchard but there are more Germans. There are only two Teams of enemies, so just shoot them like normal. When they're dead, meet back up with Combs and head all the way back to the farmhouse and meet up with Mac. He'll tell you about a final assault on your position.

Defend the farmhouse

You now have control of both Teams and once again your battle will take place in this paddock with the many half-walls. No real strategy here. Just use suppression fire and flank to get good shots. If you want, you can use your Assault Team to "Assault" suppressed enemies. If you and your Teams run up to one of the middle walls you can easily order fire on the incoming enemies and most will be shot by your Teams. There are about 5-6 waves of enemies. When they're all dead, meet up with Mac back in the barn to end the mission.

Chapter 16 - Push Into Carentan - D-Day +6

You start out with both your Fire and Assault Team.

Secure the industrial region of Carentan

Leave your teams where they are or else they'll be gunned down by the MG when you cross the road. Run SSE, across the "T" intersection, and enter the yard of the house on the other side of the road. Head West between the wall and the house and get your Sub-Machine Gun ready. Run to the area where there's a dead Allied soldier and the wooden crate you can hide behind and kill the enemies manning the MG from behind. Try to stay crouched because there are enemies across the road, behind the stone fence. When the two MG gunners are dead, pick up the US BAR Machine Gun as a replacement for the Sub-Machine Gun near the dead Allied Soldier and then use your Rifle to pick off the enemies across the road behind the fence. Alternatively, you could take out the guys behind the fence first, then the MG gunners. Next, call your Teams to you.

Follow your Arrow into the industrial half-wall area and you'll see a group of enemies to the South. Have your Fire Team suppress them. Then, take your Assault Team with you and find the enemies to the West. Have your Assault Team suppress these enemies. Then, pick off the enemies until they're dead.

Regather your Teams and head back out to the main road, kill the two enemies across the road (behind the stone fence), then locate the next two groups of enemies to the South. Take cover behind the wall and have each of your Teams fire on each of the enemy Teams. Meanwhile, head to the Truck, and then to the shed, so you can flank them. From this position you can also fire at another group of enemies. When they are dead, call both Teams to you, by the shed. Then, run toward the silos.

You'll see a tank. From the silos run directly East to the tarp-covered crates. Enemies will charge you. Have your teams fire on them. You'll probably die but you just got a checkpoint, so it won't be that bad. When the charging enemies are dead, hide your teams between the two sets of tarp-covered crates and find the Panzerfausts near the shed, just NW of the tarp-covered crates.

Grab a Panzerfaust and use the shed for cover as you shoot rockets at the enemy tank. Keep in mind you'll have to aim up quite a bit, to account for gravity. Once you get the hang of it you'll get in the pattern of grabbing a Panzerfaust, hiding behind the shed, poking out to fire on the Tank, grabbing another and repeat. It'll take about 5 hits or so.

When the tank is destroyed, immediately grab another Panzerfaust and turn around and find another enemy tank. This one is closer and therefore easier to destroy. Move your men behind the crates so that they remain safe. Then, again, take Panzerfaust after Panzerfaust to destroy this tank. Next, locate the few remaining Germans down the road to the North. When they're all cleared out you'll get a message to clear the German warehouse.

Clear the German warehouse

Follow your Arrow to the sandbag area where there are three more Germans. Mac and Leggett will come in and help you kill them. NOTE: if you do die at this checkpoint you'll start out not holding a gun. A little weird, but just hit your "Switch Weapons" button to pull it out. Anyway, when this first set of Germans is dead, meet with Mac (Sgt. Hassay) at the door of the warehouse.

This part is pretty tough and you'll probably lose a few good men. Enter with both of your Teams and as soon as you see enemies have them fire on the enemies. Meanwhile, head into the warehouse and stick to the left wall. Take out the three enemies behind the crates at the back of the warehouse and stay crouched. Next, look South and kill any more enemies through the windows. When they're dead, slowly make your way outside to the crate behind the truck. From the crate, run like hell to the East and take cover behind the crates. There are three enemies just past these crates. Face them and peek out to the left and pick off the enemies.

Next, head toward the building where the MG is located. Go up the small stairs and stick to the left wall. As soon as you can see into the building, still against the left wall, shoot the enemy that you can barely see. Then, slowly turn the corner and look inside the building. There will be two enemies behind the crates at the back of the room. Kill them, then go left and kill the other two enemies. If you want, and if the MG isn't active, you can call in your Teams and have them "Assault" both of these enemy positions instead. Then, make your way through the rest of this warehouse, killing as you go.

You'll notice that you can't get to the other MG from this area. Instead, go back outside, sneak up on the MG from the side of it, kill the man manning it, then head to the small staircase to the West and enter the warehouse again. Now you are on the other side. Kill any remaining Germans and then meet with Mac to end the mission.

Chapter 17 - Tom and Jerry - D-Day +6

In this mission you'll be primarily sniping enemies from the upper and lower roof of the Church. Later you will be using a Bazooka on three tanks. Note that you do have two Teams on the ground at your command. You begin with the Sniper Rifle and your Normal Rifle.

Defend Carentan from counter-attack

From the Start, look South down the main road and start picking off oncoming Germans. Crouch to steady your shot. After you kill about four of them, Mac will tell you to cover the West side. Go West and look out to the West. Find the gray stone alley. There will be Germans running along it. Pick them off. Look back South a bit and find any remaining enemies. Next, Mac will tell you to cover the East. Do so. After that just go from lookout to lookout finding enemies to snipe. After you clear them Mac and Leggett will tell you to go downstairs, to the lower roof.

Go all the way down the stairs and start sniping any enemies below. For good cover, crouch and use the gaps in the walls to fire. You may run out of Sniper ammo. If that's the case you can fare well enough with your normal Rifle. Note that you have men below that you can command if you like. Keep shooting enemies until there are no more.

Leggett tells you that the Bazooka is on the North side of the Church and that you need it to destroy the three oncoming tanks. Slowly make your way East and get your Rifle ready. The wooden door will open and you'll have to kill three Germans. Do so and then find the Bazooka along the railing on the left. Unlike the Panzerfaust, you don't need to account for gravity as the Bazooka is a rocket and goes pretty much where it's aimed. Grab the Bazooka.

From the Bazooka, look NW and find the enemy tank. Fire on it repeatedly, crouching and taking cover between shots. If you run out of ammo you'll automatically switch to your other weapon. Re-equip your Bazooka and go to the crate where you got the Bazooka and you can restock your ammo. You'll be dying a lot here. The tank is mean and if it gets a good shot in on you, well, it's all over. The best way I found to avoid this is to crouch and move back between shots.

When the first tank blows up, restock your Ammo and head to the SE corner and look out SE and wait for the other enemy tank to drive in. Destroy this one the same way. Finally, locate the final tank and destroy it. The mission will end when the third tank is destroyed.

Chapter 18 - No Better Spot to Die - D-Day +7

Sound familiar? You've finally caught up with that intro mission you played so long ago. This is your last mission and it is tough, so get ready.

Defend Hill 30

Grab your Fire Team and go up to the road and hide behind the downed tree and have the Fire Team suppress the first enemy you see on the left. Then, grab your Assault Team and go out on the road and turn right (NE) and go up the path along the side of the field. You'll be flanking two Germans to your left. Kill them then go to their position, behind the rock. Have your Assault Team fire on the enemies to the South, if your Fire Team hasn't already killed them. When this group is dead have your Assault Team suppress the next group of enemies to the right. Then, have your Fire Team suppress the enemies on the left. Meanwhile, crouch and work your way along the rocks to the last rock. From here you can fire on both positions. Be patient and kill them all. If you manage to take out the right side first, go there and call your Assault Team with you then have everybody fire on the left position. OK, two more groups to take out.

You'll see two more groups of enemies a little further forward; one to the left and one to the right. Have each Team fire on one of them. You should then head West, along the right side and flank the enemies on the right. Be very careful when you do this as these enemies will kill you quickly if you go in there too fast. Make sure they are suppressed (gray) and then slowly round the corner and lay into them with your Sub-Machine Gun. From this position, head South and flank the final group of enemies using the dirt wall near them for cover. Or, if you like, you can have both of your Teams "Assault" this final position.

When the field is clear, follow your Arrow and you'll hear Mac calling you. Find him and then play through this sort of dream-like section, the section you played through all that time ago in the intro mission. You can't be hurt so just stand up and fire on the enemies for fun. Basically you're just waiting for the enemy Tank to fire on you.

Link up with the 2nd Armored Division

When you finally reawake, Mac will tell you that you need to go find some Allied Tanks. Follow your Arrow along the road and kill the single oncoming German. Now run like heck along the road and when the road forks, take cover behind the trees/brush in front of you and kill the enemies behind the fallen tree, up the hill a tad. After those two are dead, continue following your Arrow. If and when you see an enemy Tank at the next fork in the road, hide until it passes. Then, run up onto the hill between the roads, going between the rocks. On the left is an enemy behind a rock. Charge him and shoot him. Continue forward in this field and take out the German in front of you, near the MG.

Man the MG and mow down the three Germans running from right to left (every once in a while, the enemy Tank will be in the area, if that happens it'll probably kill you, just retry). Continue following the arrow (pay no attention to the Tank on the left) and stay along the right side. Soon, you'll see a bridge in front of you with the 2nd AD (tanks) on it. Your job at this point is to run as fast as you can to the area under the bridge and crouch behind the first fallen tree. Whatever you do, don't get up. Just wait here. Don't even peek out. The Tanks will do their thing and will destroy any nearby enemies. It may take a few minutes so just be patient. You'll know your safe when you receive command of both Tanks.

You are now in command of two Sherman Tanks. You need to make it back to Hill 30 with the Tanks. Remember all of those forks in the road? Well, they're perfect for sending one tank to one side and one tank to the other. That's the basic plan. So, from your fallen tree position, issue a "Move" command and send one tank down the left road and one down the right road. Your two Tanks will engage the enemy tank in the area. If your tanks aren't attacking issue an "Assault" order on the enemy tank. Meanwhile, you can move through the middle, via the field between the roads.

Next, you'll encounter a MG nest. Issue an "Assault" order for each of your Tanks and they'll pound it. Here you'll find another fork in the road. Again, send one tank along the right and one along the left. You can go up the middle making sure your tanks didn't pull any stupid moves and need to be re-ordered. Your two Tanks will engage the enemy tank here. When this tank is destroyed you'll have one more to deal with. This time, don't worry about sending your Tanks down different paths, just have them both do a full on frontal assault of this third enemy tank.

When the third tank is destroyed move your Tanks toward Hill 30 and when they get there, have them "Assault" the various enemy positions while you stay covered. When the Tanks have destroyed all of the enemies on the hill go meet up with Mac to end the mission...and the game.

Chapter 19 - Victory in Carentan - D-Day +8
