Objectives

Disable Communications Radio. Sabotage Fuel Containers. Destroy Ammo Cache. Assemble with 5th Army Demo Team. Defeat Enemy Ambush. Assemble with Corporal Kish. Ascend to Hilltop Temple. Set Signal Fires for P-40 Warhawks. Destroy AA Gun. Land here, pushing away from the amphitheater. The locked gate here will force you to go the long way. The scaffolding here is how you will get around. Destroy the radio equipment and the radio antenna. Plenty of enemy resistance...

Objective IV Destroy Ammo Cache

If your back is facing the amphitheater, then you'll want to head to your right down the road off of the area that held the fuel tanks. This will lead directly to our third objective, which is to uncover the location of the Nazi ammunition cache and destroy it. Well, you didn't have to look very hard to find it, as the Nazi resistance in the area shows. You'll have to work your way through more open ruins here, that will lead to closed-in ruins, just like earlier on in the mission. The enemy...

Objective V Destroy Pressure Valves

Now we can undertake the next initial objective on our mission (don't worry, there will be more when we're done with this). But first, before you even leave the control room, be absolutely sure you check the room adjacent to the control room. You'll see a safe with a red box on it. Examine the red box and place an explosive there, and when it blows open, grab the Mauser pistol it drops. It's stronger than the Colt, and once you have it, you'll have it for your other missions as well. Sweet...

Objective VIII Eliminate the Nazi Officers

Even though it's a plausible option, you'll not want to take the Germans on at the town hall by heading in there willy-nilly via the front entrance. It's guarded by multiple machineguns and pissed off Nazis. Instead, if you're facing town hall from where you reassembled with your team, head down the adjacent alleyway, taking your second left (as the first left will simply bring you towards the main entrance). This will bring you down a linear pathway, riddled with Nazis (or not, depending on if...

Medals and Weapon Experience

There's no denying it - Medal of Honor Airborne has a quirky weapons experience and medals system that gives it somewhat of an RPG feel. Acclimating yourself to this system will allow you to become more comfortable with the game, therefore becoming more successful while playing it. While medals are somewhat peripheral in nature, not being all that important in regard to making the game easier, weapon experience is integral. Each weapon you use in the game, including grenades, are leveled up...

Objective VII Assemble with Engineers in Ammunition Storage

Assembling with the Engineers at the ammo storage room is easy enough, because it's located just below the control room. You shouldn't run into any enemy resistance en route. You can find an elevator down to the room you need from the control room. Hit the control panel on the elevator and you'll be taken several floors down. Once down there, head to your left, and you'll run into your demolition team. They'll be setting the explosives that will send the flak tower burning and crumbling. But...

Objective II Knock out Tiger Tank

Picking up the fourth bundle will make you drop your currently equipped weapon in lieu of M18 rocket launcher you just assembled. This powerful weapon will be your salvation, since you're now instructed to destroy the Tiger tank that's currently making your life a living hell. Unfortunately, you can't just hit the heavily-armored tank anywhere and expect it to explode. You must get on the front or back end of it and shoot directly into its soft underbelly. When struck in the proper way, only...

Objective Vi Vii Destroy Panzerzug Engine Destroy Panzerzug Cannon Cars

This last leg of our mission during Operation Varsity is, bar none, the most mind-bogglingly frustrating part of the game thusfar, and perhaps overall. You will not only be introduced to one of the game's cheapest, most annoying enemies, but you'll also be hard-pressed to find more than a moment's rest at any turn. The enemies here are many, they are aggressive, and frankly, they seem a little pissed off. Hell, wouldn't you be if you were losing the war Luckily for us, you're not losing the...

Objective III Disable Ammunition Lift Controls 4th Floor

Depending on the techniques used when destroying the AA guns, there may or may not be a plethora of enemies within the rooms on that same floor. If you worked your way through the outer edge of the room as you destroyed the AA guns, in lieu of remaining outside, the enemy resistance you'll find will be markedly more mild than it will be otherwise. Either way, you're gonna have to fight your way through this circular room with many enemies who want nothing more than to eliminate the very real...

Objective III Knock out Roving Tiger Tank

You'll also see a glowing green box which, when examined, will contain ten Gammon Grenades. You'll need this, as mentioned earlier, for the Tiger tanks on this mission. For now, however, there's only one to deal with, and it's roaming around below. The tank's primary gun is a threat from any distance as long as the tank has a clear shot, while its machinegun can tear you to pieces in no time flat if you're running around on the streets with it. Because of this, you'll want to combat tanks from...

Objective IX Knock out Tiger Tank

The enemies that used Panzerschreks on the Allied armor are still in the area, and are using those high-powered weapons as anti-personnel now. They're clad in black and are typically difficult to see, so what sets you off to their location most often is the fire from their shoulder-mounted projectiles. Keep a keen eye out for these foes, since more often than not, they'll be placed strategically on black-colored structures lining the heavily-armed bridge. The tank that is your primary target is...
