Easy One Man Army missions
In One Man Army missions, take out as many air units as possible quickly, especially jets as they are too fast to chase and difficult to shoot down. This is especially true in Arctic Battle or the One Man Army Mission 3 (vs. Mercs), as the jets are difficult and required to complete the mission. Take them out as they fly off the runway to defeat them effectively.
"AIM-X" mission: Easy completion
This is a very challenging mission, with anti-air defenses everywhere. Immediately go for the couplings. Take as little time as possible on defensive units. If you take your time destroying them and go on to other couplings, the couplings will be repaired and defenses will be reinforced. Immediately after their destruction, go to the center and destroy defenses. Hide under the platform to recharge your armor. Once the defenses are substantially diminished go to the top and strafe Horgan, keeping the cannon below and in front of you. When he charges his attack, drop behind the cannon. He will hit it and damage it. After a few times of doing this, not only will you defeat Horgan but also get the hero objective of destroying the cannon.
"Flying Fortress" mission: Easy completion
Go to the fortress' jamming device. Next to it is a door mounted to the bottom of the fortress. Fly up inside and destroy the four boxes that will take down the shields of the cannons. Fly back down. Go around and fly to the highest point. Take out the cannons with your missiles. Jarvis will tell you to go inside. Tap into the computer and come back out. Destroy the four engines then destroy the top of the craft. Go back inside to another door. Open the big loading bay door and fly inside. There may be a few mines dropped on the city below. Destroy the mine and go back into the loading bay doors. Destroy the big blue cannon to go inside. Straddle between the two orange power engines to complete the level.
As you unlock parts to your suit in Story mode, they will become usable in past missions in Mission Archive mode.
