If you’re having trouble aiming, follow the path of your
tracer fire or make your own crosshairs with Scotch tape
and stick it on the monitor.
Conserve heat-seeking missiles for either tanks or planes.
Deal with helicopters with standard artillery fire.
The only reason you should use your handgun is to pick off
supply crates that drop in.
Switch to the Antitank gun when the big chunks of metal start
Try to pick off enemy foot soldiers while they’re still in
the boat. You should be able to wipe out all of them with a
direct missile hit.
Change Level Settings:
Under the beachhead directory you’ll see a list of
all the levels in the game:
If you open those in notepad you can modify any of the
levels settings. Incuding type of ammo and the enemys agression…
//Bullets, Projectiles, Missiles
Ammo 250 15 15
//Tank, Jet, HelicopterGun, HelicopterRocket (range:1-9)
Aggression 6 6 6 6
Just change the numbers beside Ammo to whatever you want,
or lower the agression of the enemies to give yourself a
little breathing space.
When the boats that carry the troops and tanks appear, do not wait until
they hit the
beach and the gates drop. Instead of trying to gun down every solder that
of those boats, use the howitzer cannon and try to destroy as many of the
boats as you
can before they hit the beach. Do this quickly and accurately, trying to hit
with the first shot. You will not be able to get all of them before they hit
the beach unless
done quickly. For the remaining boats, use your machine gun and gun the
troo[s down as
they appear from the boats. The troops will be in more of a group formation.
Only use your missiles on the jets and helicopters. If you run out of
missiles and need to
shoot a jet down, use your machine gun and wait until they dive towards you.
Shoot away at them to take them down.
