Introduction:

Apache air assault is an helicopter flight simulator from Gaijin Entertainment and published by Activision Publishing. It was released on the 19th of December 2010. In game you control the most lethal attack helicopter on the planet, the Apache AH-64! You play through levels as different helicopter teams from different armies in special operations all over the world. There are many helicopters you can fly in this game such as the Apache AH-64D Longbow, Apache AH-1, Apache AH-64X Experimental Prototype, MQ-8B Fire Scout and the Mi-35 Hind. Each model varies in size, features and depending on your control settings - manoeuvrability. You’ll can customize each aircraft with different paint jobs and decals that you unlock from playing the game's 16 missions.
 

Walkthrough:

Step 1: Playing through the Campaign

Apache air assault is a very challenging game and it would be foolish to go in and play it straight away on any difficulty other than training. At first you are asked to play through a training level which will test out your skills flying the Apache and shooting the weapons. I advise you to play through this mission as many times as you need to make sure you get the hang of the flying and shooting, as you are going to need to be good at it to complete the hard missions. After starting the first mission you will unlock the trophy Got To Da Choppa!. All the trophy requires you to do is Start 'The Sky is Burning' mission. After watching the mini-cutscene the trophy will pop. Then playing through each mission and completing objectives will earn you the other campaign trophies:

  • Flying Colors
  • Wave Goodbye
  • Radio Silenced
  • Overwatch
  • Crude Defender
  • Stopping Power
  • Highly Survivable
  • Point And Shoot
  • Ace Of Diamonds
  • Chemical Killer
  • Rigged With Explosives
  • A Leaf On The Wind
  • Team Player
  • Rumble in the Jungle
  • Second The Best


You will then need to play through the campaign on Realistic or Veteran difficulty. Playing through the campaign on Realistic or Veteran difficulty will unlock these trophies:

  • Desert Striker
  • Feet Wet
  • Jungle Striker
  • Touchdown

Step 2: Co-op Trophies (2nd Controller Needed)

There are also some trophies in this game that require you to complete the level in Split-screen co-op. In split-screen co-op you and your partner are in one helicopter and one person is the pilot, the other is the gunner. I highly recommend that you get a friend over to your house to play this, as it is very hard to do it on your own. If you try to get the trophies on your own, have both controllers next to you and fly high above your targets. Make sure you have the aim perfect, the heli going at a steady speed and not on a crash course! Then switch to your other controller and start shooting all of your missiles. Don't spray your missiles everywhere if you are on any difficulty other than training. Do each of the co-op missions and it should get you these trophies:

  • Bridge Burner
  • Drug Bust
  • Four Eyes
  • Demolition Man
  • Apache Of Two
 
Step 3: Squad Operations Trophies

Now you are going to tackle the squad operations part of the game. Squad operations are separate missions from the main campaign, but they take place in similar places to the main missions. Each missions have different objectives you need to follow, and some you need to do in certain time limits. All the squad operations missions can be done solo but it is STRONGLY advised that you do them with a partner. They range in difficulty but many are very challenging. You will need to complete all of the squad operations for the Team Player trophy and at least one online for the Squadrowned trophy. At the end of this part you should have these trophies:

  • Dominator
  • Helicopterrific

Step 4: Clean up

This is the part where you finish up collecting trophies and earn you Platinum. Refer to the trophy guide on how to do them, You may need to earn trophies such as these trophies and more:

  • Peppy's Request
  • What, No Roflcopter?
  • New Veteran

    For this you will need to complete all of the squad operations missions. You can either do the missions online with other people or on your own.

  • Finish Tazirstan Chapter on Realistic or Veteran difficulty

    Finish Tazirstan Chapter on Realistic or Veteran difficulty See 'Jungle Striker' for extra help.

  • Finish Africa Chapter on Realistic or Veteran difficulty

    Finish Africa Chapter on Realistic or Veteran difficulty. See 'Jungle Striker' for extra help.

  • Finish Amazon Chapter on Realistic or Veteran difficulty

    For this trophy you will need to finish the Amazon Chapter on Realistic or Veteran difficulty. Realistic mode is the mode I advise you to play through the missions as they will be easier. In the Campaign there are a few missions that are very challenging on Realistic mode. The difference between Realistic and Training are the controls are more complicated. Veteran has no retries and you will need to re-arm at helipads because if you run out of ammo there is no auto reload.

    Here are some videos and tips to help you get through each of the hard veteran missions:

    Turkey Shoot (credit to JaximusDecimus1):

    First you are going to need to take out the Reaper EMP drones. You will need to switch to your stinger missiles (Air to Air) and take out as many as you can with those. Also try and position your gunner to take out some. After you have done that, a friendly jet will come along and destroy the rest. On the way to the next way point, take out the boats with hell fires. Re arm at the nearby checkpoint and attack the base with nearby with hell fires. Follow the video for more help.

    Sharks in the Water (credit to Roman Buehler):

    For this one you also need to use your Hellfires to take out the boats as they have AA guns. Use your gun to take them out too. Another tip is to fly around at high speed to avoid getting shot down. Do fast fly-bys on the boats to take them out. For the next part near the oil rig do not use Hellfires when the friendlies are close by. Use FLIR view to see the targets better. Watch the video for more help.

    City of Fire (credit to AGEMO):

    When playing this mission make sure you only use your Hellfire missiles on T-90 tanks. Re-arm on the roof of the main building to get more ammo. Attack the convoys closest to the city first. At the end of the mission you will need to hold back the enemies until back up comes.

  • Complete the Campaign

    For this one you just need to complete all missions in the campaign on any difficulty. Finish all the chapters and on the last mission and the trophy will pop.

  • Complete the Campaign and Squad Operations

    For this one it is the same as Rotorhead but you also need to complete all missions in the squad operations on any difficulty as well. See the squad operations trophies and the roadmap for more info.

  • Win any 3 missions from the Campaign in Local Co-op on any difficulty

    For this trophy you must win any 3 missions from the Campaign in Local Co-op on any difficulty. This one will be very easy to get as you need to play 3 missions in Local co-op to get 3 other trophies, so to make this much easier, just make sure you finish all three of those missions to the end, and the trophy will pop on the last one.

  • Complete all secondary objectives in Campaign mode

    GLITCHED

    For this you need to complete all secondary objectives in Campaign mode. Secondary objectives come up in these missions:

    • Sky Is Burning
    • Holidays In Hell
    • A Diamond In The Rough
    • City on Fire


    To view your objectives and secondary objectives press the button. After each waypoint/checkpoint you pass, you will get a new set of objectives. Press every time to view your next set of objectives and when you receive them you will need to complete them.

    This trophy is Glitched. After playing through the campaign missions and doing all of the secondary objectives, the trophy does not pop for many people. The solution to this is to copy your save to a USB drive or the PS+ Cloud then delete your save off your system. Play through the game doing all of the secondary objectives and the trophy will pop after you complete the last one. Now simply copy your old save back to your PS3 and you will carry on as you left off before.

  • Post scores to all Leaderboards

    After you complete a mission your data will be uploaded to the leader boards. Do not cancel this procedure, and it will pop after you complete the first training mission. If it does not pop then, try and complete a squad operations mission and then upload your scores.

  • Watch a replay

    After you finish the a mission it will give you the option to watch the replay. Save the replay and watch it. The training level would probably be the quickest video to watch as it would be the shortest mission. Just play replay and the trophy will pop once you quit out.

  • Kill 10 enemy infantry in FLIR view

    FLIR view is a view you can switch to in your heli. Press to switch to FLIR view. You may get this in the training level is you kill 10 infantry in FLIR view. Otherwise you will get it through the missions. Play the first tutorial level to refresh your memory on how to do it. Here is a picture:

  • Complete a landing at a landing zone in Realistic or Veteran difficulty

    This trophy is unmissable as when you play through the game on Realistic mode, many missions require you to land to complete it. Re-arming your helicopter also counts for the trophy. Another easy method for touchdown would be just go into free flight on realistic at 50 feet and then just land straight away!

  • Kill 8 ground units with on Hellfire ripple shot

    To get this achievement you need an aircraft equipped with at least 8 Hellfire rockets. You will see an arrow or chevron appear above the target after a while, this can be done over several targets before you fire your barrage. Now release the button and tap it to switch to the next target. The previous target stays marked when you do this. Now repeat this process until you have marked 8 enemy units. After you have marked the last enemy you can fire the Hellfire missiles with the button. All eight missiles will be fired at once and as soon as the last target is destroyed the trophy will pop.

  • Enable setting 'Control Turret in Zoom' and kill 5 enemy infantry by gun in this mode

    To enable the setting you must go into Options and select the Controls. There you will have to set th line reading "Control turret in zoom" to Yes. Now apply the settings by pressing the button.

    I recommend doing the training mission on training difficulty. Fly to the part where you have to use the FLIR to kill the enemy infantry after destroying the three vehicles in the village. Switch to an external view, do not use FLIR do kill the infantry. Instead hover quite low and zoom in. Now you can control your turret with the right stick. You will see a small dotted crosshair moving around. Use this to kill at least five soldiers in the village and the trophy will pop. Use auto hover to steady your self using .

  • Win any mission on Veteran difficulty

    To unlock Veteran difficulty you first need to finish the campaign. You will unlock this difficulty as soon as you gain The Rotorhead trophy. Now all you need to do is pick a mission and complete it on Veteran difficulty! I recommend the tutorial mission as it will be much easier to complete as you have infinite ammo!

  • Win one Squad Operations mission in online Co-op mode

    For this you need to play one Co-op SQ OP mission ONLINE. You need to successfully complete the mission. Pick the mission that you feel you find the easiest. If you are first starting out I recommend the Close protection mission. It can be on any difficulty. Try to co-ordinate your attacks with hell fires to be more effective.

  • Complete free flight with each helicopter

    From the main menu, choose Free Flight. The quickest way to do each one would be to have these settings:

    • Ground Units - either none or friendly
    • Number of Allies - 7
    • Number of Enemies - 1
    • Enemy Skill Level - Rookie


    The helicopters you need to complete free flight with are:

    • AH-64D Longbow
    • AH-64X
    • Apache AH-1
    • MQ-8B Fire Scout
    • MI-35 Hind


    To be able to fly the AH-64X and Apache AH-1 you need to complete the first mission where they appear. They appear in Lord of War and The River Deep respectively. Both of these missions can be played once you have finished the "and The Sky is Burning missions". Once you start just wait for the enemy to be killed, and then you have completed free flight with that heli! Simple!

  • Use satellite view in each location

    Satellite view is activated by pressing . You'll see a green little bar filling up across your screen as the link is completed. By 'each location' they mean each theatre you are fighting in. Tazirstan, Lualia and Salcedo. You do not have to do it in every mission. Just go into satellite view once in 'The Sky Is Burning', once in 'Lord Of War' and once in 'The River Deep' and the trophy will pop.

  • Using the 30mm cannon, kill 20 enemy infantry without letting go of the trigger

    I got it in the second Campaign mission (it is the third if the first training mission is considered). At the last village, at a certain time your Apache team mate will be shot down. Then infantry enemies will start rushing towards the crash site. When the enemies appear hold down the 30mm cannon (FLIR mode) until the trophy pops up. Consider that you need at least 800-900 rounds available as you shall keep firing even if there are no targets available (they appear in subsequent waves). Do not let go of .

  • Do a barrel roll!

    For this you need to play on Realistic difficulty to get this trophy. Go into free flight and ascend to about 500/600 feet. Push the sticks to the left or right so you do a barrel roll. Here is a video.

  • Play one mission entirely in cockpit view

    For this trophy you will need to play one mission entirely in cockpit view. To change view press the button on your controller. Switch to the view that looks like this (credit to dealspwn.com for the image):


    As soon as the mission starts, choose cockpit view and play the whole mission in it. As long as you click it as soon as you can, the trophy will pop. Play the mission you find easiest on training difficulty to help you get it.

  • Complete any mission without dying on any difficulty

    For this one it is pretty straight forward but can be challenging if you struggle with this game. Obviously you are going to want to choose the easiest difficulty, unless you are more comfortable on another difficulty. Take it slow and make sure all of your rockets are reloaded before going into a fight. It would be better to wait 3 minutes for you Hellfires to be recharged than die because you didn’t have enough fire power.

  • Kill 30 enemy ground units with the 30mm camera

    This one you should pick up while playing through the campaign. The 30 kills does not have to be in one mission, so you could just replay the training mission a couple of times until you get it. You have to kill the soldiers though, your gunner cannot.

  • Kill 70 enemy ground units with the Hydra 70 rockets

    This one will definitely occur while you play. Just keep playing the missions and it will pop long before the end.

  • Kill 114 enemy ground units with the AGM 114 Hellfire missiles

    This one may occur while you play, but it may not. A way of doing this would be to begin a Free Flight mode with as many enemy ground forces as you can. Select an aircraft and arm 16 Hellfires missiles. Ensure that you do not have friendly ground forces or friendly pilots enabled so they do not steal your kills. Begin the flight at any altitude you want, but 50 feet would be best because at this height you wont have to wait for your engines to generate power for lift-off, but you wont be so high that enemy anti-air fire is a huge problem. Carry on killing with hell fires until the trophy pops.

  • Kill 9 enemy air units with the FIM-92 Stinger missiles

    Go into free flight mode and enable enemy air craft. Start the highest altitude you can to avoid being killed before take-off. Try to get really close to your enemy and then fire two missiles at them, the closer you get the more likely the missiles wont be attracted to the flares. Hide behind a mountain until your missiles are reloaded, carry on until you have 9 kills.

  • Avoid 15 incoming missiles

    For this one you need to avoid 15 incoming missiles from the enemy. You can avoid the missiles from enemy helicopters and ground troops. There are missions were you will get this trophy but a certain way of doing it is by going into free flight mode and choosing as many enemy helicopters to be there as you can. Set the difficulty to training and just dodge all of the incoming missiles until the trophy pops. If you are finding it hard, set some friendly helicopters to be there too so you don't have everyone firing at you.

  • Unlock all skins for all helicopters

    Skins unlock when you finish missions in the squad operations and campaign. On the way to getting those trophies, this one will pop as you will unlock all skins when you finish all SQ OP and campaign.

  • Unlock twenty decals

    See Skin Deep.

 

Secret trophies

  • Start 'The Sky is Burning' mission

    At the start of the First mission 'The Sky is Burning', your base will be attacked by the enemy. You will then watch a mini-cutscene and your player will run to the helicopter. You are not required to do anything for this trophy as it will pop at the start of the first mission. This trophy is un-missable and will pop on any difficulty.

  • Play the Credits

    At the end of the game the credits will roll. There will also be a small mini game you can play while you are watching the credits. You do not need to play the game for the trophy to pop. You cannot die through this stage. You may need to watch the whole of the credits to get the trophy to pop, but the easiest thing to do is put the controller down and do something else, come back in a few minutes and you will have your trophy.
