Easy "Randgriz Crest of Honor" achievement or trophy
- You do not need to earn an "A" rank on every battle. You just need to get an "A" rank on battles which are in the main game, and not those from DLC.
- Almost all maps can be completed in one turn with Alicia and orders (even Skirmish under the hard difficulty). Consider using combinations of Awaken Potential, Caution, Defense Boost and Demolition Boost for most maps. With the first three, Alicia can run over most maps in one turn without dying. With demolition Boost she can take out a tank in one CP.

This requires one character to die permanently. To do this, you wait three turns without calling in a medic or wait for them to get stepped on by an enemy while incapacitated. CP units (Alicia, Rosie, Largo and Shamrock) cannot permanently die, and will "retire" instead. Either choose a recruit that is unwanted and kill them if you want the in-game medal as well. Alternately, save the game beforehand and reload after earning ""The Splintered Horn" in order to keep all recruits alive. Consider waiting until you complete "The Wings of Solidarity" before attempting this.

- Saving a fallen comrade (4 points)
Include every unit in at least five battles to get the points easily. If you are trying for an "A" rank on all maps this should be easy. When your unit has 5 points, go to Castlefront St. When Ms. Ellet mentions that you have a rising star in your squad, the hidden potential will be unlocked. After completing the game, their full profiles will be unlocked. The profile under the "Personnel" tab has three parts. The second part unlocks after 5 points are earned and the third part is visible after completing the game with the potential unlocked. "The Wings of Solidarity" will be earned when you start a new game from your saved game file. Five hidden recruits are required and can be unlocked as follows:
