Alright, first off, I know there is a video walkthough, but if your like me, you wont want something that is a dead give away, and since the placement of your opponents troops is random to some degree, then the video walkthough may or may not work for that particular match. The following is a list of tips and tricks that I have found work remarckbly well.

Part II: Upgrades (And If They're Worth It)

To decide which upgrades are for you, then you must first decide which tactics you most commonly use. Here are the three most basic ones.

Turtling: Extremely defensive, you ussualy win with moral being depleted.

Newt: Balanced combination of offensive and defensive. Win with both concuring and moral wins.

Rusher: Entirely offensive. The word 'defensive' isnt in your vocabulary. Win with concuring wins.

Turtlers will want mainly defensive, and artillery upgrades. Newts will want to get a combination of the both, and Rushers will want more infantry upgrades.

In Warfare 1944, Newts and Rushers tend to have more sucess than Turtlers, but Rushers tend to take bigger risk. Newts are a balance between the two.

Part IV: Player Submitted and Extra Tips

Player Submitted Tips

Vinster132
deploy tank. I use it to knock out the enemy tank.Then I deploy riflemen to protect the tank. When the enemy tank goes bye bye. I deploy assault men out. Then deploy some riflemen. And then I deploy 2 teams of riflemen on the left and the right. I make them stay undercover to kill some enemy's. (this is kinda cheating to the enemy but) I spam rifle men lol.

leo99rules
(last level)
u.s. regular
at the start the enemy will send out a tank first you put a tank where the other tank is (if the enemy tank is left then u put your tank left same for right) you then put bazookas behind your tank as soon as you have enough points your tank should get knocked out first (if on regular) and your bazookas will finish the enemy tank off now that the enemy tank is gone you have to press on the enemy and make them always need to use mg's assualts and riflemen because if you dont they send out another tank an easy way to press on the enemy is a tactic i call base build this is useful in the last lvl because you have two areas which can cover you on the middle row on the two bits of cover you have put mg's or snipers on them then you press the enemy's on the flanks and if they get to close mg's will take them out and the snipers will do the same thing for long range (snipers are easier for this tactic) then if you are like me you flank the enemy till their morale drops or just send riflemen down the middle

hope this helped


Extra Tips

Easy Tank Kills

Ok, everyone hate how the bazooka teams do zilch against a tank right? The bazooka teams lack the firepower to disable a tank unless they get lucky and hit an engine.

So, put an officer on the field, but keep him in the back so he doesnt get killed and make you lose morale. Deploy a rifle group ahead of the officer to hold up the tank for 30-45 seconds. Deploy a bazooka team, and at the same time call in a air strike. You must have the airstrike upgrade to do this! Before V. 1.1 came out, an airstrike would kill panzers (not shermans) in one hit, but the health got boosted on panzers. So when you call in the airstrike, deploy 2, yes, 2 bazooka teams to finish the tank off. It works with one, but he ussualy gets killed and you have to deploy another. Wash, rinse and repeat.



(Tank VS Tank)
When It comes down to the Sherman VS the Panzer, the Panzer Wins. In order to destroy the panzer, combine this tip with the 'Easy Tank Kills'.

While calling in air strikes on the Panzers, Send in a Sherman. BEHIND the Sherman, send in Bazooka teams. The Sherman will take the damage while the Bazooka teams remain unscathed. Send in Rifle men incase the Sherman is destroyed. The rifle men will take the damage, allowing the bazooka teams to continue attacking. Send in another Sherman when you can. You can also use mortars, as they can take out the infantry support around the tank with there sporadic fire. If your going for maximun XP at the end of the match however, stick with using just the Bazooka teams.

Note: I couldnt find a list of Maps for the game, and I dont have enough time to go back through the game beating it just to find out the Names of the levels. So... Deal with it
