Getting Rank & Fuel in Level One
In the PC version of Warzone, mission one has no timer so you can lets the
game build up oil over night. But even better-you can have your guys build up
rank. The second and third base will constantly send out troops if you stay
near it and do not destroy the factory, power generator or oil derrik. By
constantly rotating my troops I know have 10 specials, 1 hero, 30 Elites and a
For a sturdy and effective defense follow these instructions:
1. Build a line of bunkers (not moaters).
2. Build a hardcrete wall just behind the bunkers (you could put in hard
points they don't hurt!).
3. Put a line of guard towers behind the wall.
4. Build another hardcrete wall behind the towers.
5. Build mortar pits 2 spaces behind the wall.
Note: for a surprise put cyborgs in-between the 2 walls (but leave the towers)
this works cause when the enemy breaks through the wall they come pouring out
discouraging further attack.
Say Hello to Artillary
Build ripple rocket enplacements grondshakers ect at a safe postion outside
the enemy base (with a few hardpoints and AA sites just incase) Then WATCH THE
When attacking a base that contains NEXUS 'converters' - technology that
converts units from your team to NEXUS units - approach with indirect firing
units like the groundshaker, pepperpot, bombard etc. These units maintain a
larger distance than others thus avoiding to be NEXUSsed.
Defend with Towers
Always Make Sure Your Base Is Well Defended With Towers. Pits. Bunkers.
Hardpoints. And Enplacements Before You Attack Nexus. The Pardigm. And The
Colletive. While You Are At It, Dont Forget To Put Air Defenses In Your Base
Too, Sense They Will Attack With VTOLS Also. You Might Want To Put Defenses At
The Back Of Your Base, So They Cant Get In That Way Either.
Base/SA Missile Attacking
When attacking a base that has SA missiles, don't just go in right away with a
VTOL squad - no matter how many you use. You might get away with it, but it
will claim enourmous resources for rebuilding the lost units. Usually you
could not see all the SA missile bunkers, so you would know what you started
when it's too late.
That Spare Time
Don't ever finish your mission with a lot of spare time. Instead, use the
spare time to research artifacts and to fortilify you base.
VTOLs cannot go into unexplored territory, to solve this send them on patrol
by selecting patrol from the right mouse button menu and assigning them to the
The Warzone 2100 manual does a good job of informing you that VTOL aircraft
can strike at anything. Its high speed also makes it ideal for reconaissance
purposes, but here's a use that is not mentioned and easy to overlook:
Recovering artifacts via VTOL from enemy bases. This is simple to do, and can
be done while placing only one unit at risk! It is especially easy if all of
the AA defenses have been eradicated and you want to recover artifacts before
taking down the anti-tank defenses.
Build a few vehicles with the heavy weapons you would use as ground
instalations, they are mobile and cheaper than the structures. They have
limited use though so dont replace your base with vehicles. they do a good job
of defence until you have something better than machene guns!
Destroy Long Range Defenses
When you have tech level 3... With VTOL, destroy long range defenses in enemy
base (mortar, bombard, howitzer...), start destroying energy generator to stop
oil production for a while. In this time, prepare a cyborg transport, 4 laser
cyborg, 4 scourge cyborg and 2 repair cyborg. Send the transport and cyborgs
near the enemy base (behind is better) and start destruction... For easier use
create two groups with cyborgs : 1 with laser, the second with scourge.
