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.
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
- 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
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
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:
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
