Introduction:

Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers takes place during WW2 with the US and Japan. The single player campaigns consists of 4 campaigns with 2 for each side, each with their own stories and missions and you can choose which campaign you want to do first. I went with the US first because I am familiar with their planes and equipment, plus all of the single player trophies were obtainable in that campaign except for the Japanese Campaign trophy. The USA missions take place on the U.S.S Enterprise carrier and the Japanese missions takes place on two IJN carriers, both campaigns have several assignments which are:

  • Battle (Mandatory)
  • Watch Tower (optional)
  • Patrol (optional)
  • Missions (optional)

Other Main screen missions are: Dogfight and Survival Modes, Training mission and Online. See here for additional tips: CLICKY

Step 1: Playthrough the campaigns

Play through both story campaigns on rookie and will obtain the following trophies: Japanese Campaign and American Campaign. You should also receive the following trophies if you start out with the American campaign: Destroyer Destroyer, Carrier Killer, Torpedo Master, Torpedo Wizard (missable), Mind the Water, Aces High, Ship Sinker, and Ace. Note: You can skip Watch Tower and still advance in the campaign.

Step 2: Mopping up

Any trophies you might have missed during the two story campaigns could be obtained in mission select. Go to the main screen and select replay missions.

Step 3: Online trophies

The Online can be done via LAN or PSN with up to 7 other people in 4 Modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and Carrier Battle (Destroy and Protect). We did capture the flag and set the wins for 3 (this is the quickest way to win) I personally recommend boosting the online because this is one of those speciality genre games in which few people are playing so you may or may not find matches all the time. The boosting thread could be found here: CLICKY

17 trophies ( 7  )

  • Awarded for successfully collecting all trophies from Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers

    This will unlock when all the other trophies are unlocked. Congratulations on your new Plat!

  • Complete both IJN Campaigns

    There are 2 IJN (Japanese) campaigns, each with 5 major missions. Once you have completed both IJN campaigns, the trophy will unlock.

    GLITCH

    There is a glitch in the EU version of game in the "Bombing of Darwin Mission. Thanks to robg69 and others, this glitch is easily fixed:

    This mission (Bombing of the Darwin) in the first round of Japanese missions where you have to destroy the Australian Airbase. After you destroy all the targets, you are stuck and the game doesn't progress. What I had to do was fly to another base (roughly Northwest of the main airbase) and bomb several hangars there until the missions would advance. I must have restarted that 2-3 times thinking it was glitched .

  • Complete both USN Campaigns

    There are 2 USN campaigns, each with 5 major missions. Once you have completed both USN campaigns, the trophy will unlock.

  • Sink 5 destroyers in campaign game mode

    Destroyers are smaller than cruisers but larger than a submarine. This trophy will unlock naturally as you progress in the USN campaign. Sink 5 destroyers and this trophy will be yours.

  • Sink a carrier in campaign game mode

    The aircraft carrier is the largest ship in the fleet and it will take a lot of damage to sink one. If you start off with the USA then you will get this story related opportunity early in the campaign. Torpedoes are very effective so choose the last squadron of planes when starting the mission.

  • Hit a moving ship with a torpedo

    You do not have to sink a ship with torpedo, just hit it. As you approach the ship with your plane fly low, slow and level till the red plane marker (underneath your plane in third person view) turns white then release the torpedo.

  • Hit a manoeuvring ship with a torpedo

    Missable

    People are stating that this trophy is a missable, I have not experienced this personally. Your best opportunity to do this is during the U.S. mission "Dangerous Cruisers" where you have to find and attack 5 Japanese cruisers. All I did was torpedo the leading Cruiser of the fleet as it was turning and the trophy unlocked. You do not have to sink it.

  • Successfully land on carrier at mission’s end

    You will have an opportunity at the end of most missions to select and attempt to land on the aircraft carrier. Tip: I got this on the training mission. I recommend using that mission so if you crash, you do not have to restart a story related mission.

    To land your plane:

    1. Hit to drop the landing gear.
    2. Slow your plane down with throttle.
    3. Have the plane lined up and approach the back of the moving aircraft carrier. The plane should be slightly above the aircraft carrier.
    4. Ease up on the throttle some more while over the deck of the aircraft carrier.
    5. Slow down even more until you touched the deck of the aircraft carrier.
    6. Slow down till you shut off the plane's engines. Note: If you feel like your going too fast or going to crash, raise your throttle and attempt steps 1-6 again.
  • Reach maximum experience (255) with any pilot.

    You need to get at least one pilot (in any squadron) ranked up to over 255 experience. The quickest way to start this is after the first mission. The game will take you to your aircraft's screen. If you select the square button you will have an opportunity to rearrange each of your 3 squadron's pilot's by highest ranked experience. By doing this, you will have the first opportunity to gain more experience with your highest ranked pilot starting off first in the next mission. Rinse and repeat till you get that pilot ranked up just passed 255 xp and the trophy will pop. Note: If your highest ranked pilot dies, you will not rank up so restart the mission or checkpoint.

  • Sink 20 ships in campaign mode

    This is story related and will come naturally towards the end of USN campaign. All ships count towards this providing you sink them.

  • Ace

     

    Shoot down 100 enemy planes in campaign mode

    This will come naturally. When there are dogfight missions you will have every opportunity to get anywhere from 10 to 15 kills. There are 20 missions so it shouldn't be a problem. If you start with the USN campaign, then you will get this trophy in the middle of it.

  • Perform 3 kills in row in MP

    Just get 3 kills in a row in an online match. You could boost this one with a friend in a 1v1 match or you could do it at the same time as Good Show and Cracking Good Show.

    You must do this with at least 6 people in the room. Just be in the top half of the score board, for example: If you come in third place you will be in the top half. If you boost and choose to get 3 or more kills in a row, you'll get Multiplayer Ace as well.

  • Place first in multiplayer match with at least 6 players

    Just come in first place with 6 or more people in your match. You will get this at the same time as Good Show.

  • Play 15 multiplayer matches to the end
