    Description: An extraterrestrial spaceship has appeared above the city.
    The Alien force is so large in number that it covers the entire sky.
    Negotiations are currently underway, but in case of an emergency, all
    Ranger Teams and Storm Teams are to report to their designated posts.
    
    Weapons I used: 
    AF18 Assault Rifle - Good at close range when fighting the bugs
    Cascade 1 Rocket Launcher - Good for hitting big groups of bugs
    
    When you start the level you will see a cut scene with civilians
    running towards the screen while the screen pans up to look upon
    the massive alien spaceships while the reporter talks about how
    the aliens have been named The Ravagers. 
    
    When you take control of your character also known as Storm 1 you
    will see many spaceships in the sky but for this level ignore all
    of them. As you move forward you should see civilians running towards
    you and away from the aliens. Here you will encounter the first and
    weakest of the Ravagers, the Black Terror Ant.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Description: The Black Terror Ant looks just as it sounds. It
    is a rather large black ant. It is much taller then a normal
    human. It's attacks include trying to bite you to shooting
    out some sort of orange liquid acid at you. They are the
    weakest and most common of the Ravagers, for now at least.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    
    As you move up you will encounter a large group of these bugs
    which you have to kill. Use the Cascade 1 or any rocket launcher
    you have as you move towards them and then use the assault rifle
    if the bugs get close to you. As you kill them power-ups will
    sometimes drop from their bodies. The green ones are weapons,
    the reddish ones are armor upgrades which increase your health
    by 1 after you beat the level. The white ones heal you and the
    darker green ones heal you more then the white ones.
    
    After you finish off the Black ants here look at your radar
    and move towards the new mass of red. You will end up at a
    small park where you are supposed to meet up with another
    Ranger Team and help them annihilate the surrounding bugs.
    As you approach them it is best to use a ranged weapon
    such as a rocket launcher or sniper rifle, the Cascade 1
    in my case and then once  you get right up next to them
    use your assault rifle.
    
    Also watch out and try not to get surrounded as their
    acid can hurt a lot when their is a big group of them.
    Once you finish this group up a third group will appear
    so use your radar and head towards them. They are most
    likely already heading towards you crawling up and down
    the buildings so be ready and hit them with a ranged
    weapon until and try to eliminate most of them that
    way. 
    
    After you defeat these enemies you will get a mission cleared.
    
    The weapons you receive will vary but the ones I got are:
    
    MMF41-B3 (Sniper-Rifle)
    C24 Bomb (Special Weapon)
    MMF42-RA (Special Weapon)
    Y10 Wide Impulse (Special Weapon)
    UM3-J Grenade Launcher (Grenade)
    Buffalo G3 Burst (Shotgun)

    Description: The city is in a state of panic because of the sudden
    appearance of giant insects. All available Ranger Teams and Storm
    Teams are to report to the scene at once. You must protect the civilians
    from the bugs. At this time, we do not know the relationship between The
    Ravagers and these giant bugs, but we are gathering data as quickly as
    possible.
    
    Weapons I used: I used the same as the las level as you will be mainlky
    fighting more Black Terror Ants and these weapons are good against them.
    AF18 Assault Rifle
    Cascade 1 Rocket Launcher
    
    As the level starts you will immediately gain control of your character.
    You will see the spaceships in the sky again but still keep ignoring
    them because you cannot do anything about them. You will also hear
    civilians screaming. If you look up ahead you will see why as you will
    see more Black Terror Ants and they are now attacking the civilians.
    You should be able to see their orange spray flying out. There are a lot
    of them so try and take as many as you can out from a distance and try not
    to get overwhelmed by them. Once you defeat all of the bugs the mission is
    over.

    As you start you will gain control of your character and the general will
    tell you how you must exterminate the bugs as they are now attacking 
    civilians. You should be able to see the bugs ahead of you walking accross
    the road so head towards them and kill them. It should be just like the
    last level with nothing new added yet. Try and meet up with the soldiers
    to your right in the park first and help them and then head over to kill
    the rest of the bugs. The bugs are positioned all around you so just use
    your radar and head towards the large groups of them and usually most of
    them will end up running towards you whereas you can kill them. Also
    do not worry about destroying the buildings they are walking on with a
    rocket launcher as there is no consequence for doing so.
    
    Once all the bugs on your radar are destroyed the mission is cleared.
    
    What I go: No weapons.

    They are attacking civilians and eating them. This threat needs to be
    eliminated at all costs. Storm 1 and 2 are to go into battle at once
    and support the Ranger Teams that are already engaged in combat.
    
    As the level starts you will immediately gain control of your character.
    You will see no enemies but if you look at your radar their is a large
    concentration of them. So you must head towards that concentration
    of red dots on your radar and get ready for a fight. When you get to them
    just use your rocket launcher to annihilate most of them and then your
    assault rifle if they get to close or to kill all the stragglers. After
    you defeat the first group keeping moving on towards the large needle
    building where the second group is. Use the same tactics to kill all
    of them.
    
    After you defeat them the camera will look up and lock onto the
    alien spacecrafts, two of them to be exact. Their bottom doors will open up
    and many Black Terror Ants will fall out of it onto the ground. Kill all
    of them and the mission will be cleared.

    When the level starts you will be told that your job is to take out the
    enemies on the ground while they attack the enemies in the air. So you
    must head towards the concentration of red on your radar and confront the
    Black Terror Ants. Over the course of fighting them you will hear the
    reporter talking about how the EDF is attacking the Mothership and then
    how the Mothership deploys countless warships. You will then hear how
    the EDF Fighters are being rapidly destroyed and how the attack on the
    Mothership was a failure. You will then be told to retreat as the gunships
    are heading towards you. You must now destroy the enemy gunships.

    The Ravager gunship is a flying spaceship with a silver color. It
    is equipped with multiple laser cannons which it will shoot at you
    when it flies down upon you. You may destroy them with whatever
    type of weapon you please. Assault rifles work good when they fly close
    and sniper and rocket launchers are also very effective against them.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    As you look forward you will see that a very large number of gunships just
    appeared right in front of you and to clear the mission you must destroy
    them all. Fire your rocket launcher or sniper rifle to kill them before they
    get to close. When they do get close you can use your assault rifle to take
    them out. The ships have the habit of flying around you and then stopping to
    shot so use this time to take them out before they fire. Also keep moving
    throughout the entire fight. Once they are all dead the mission is complete.

    The Ravagers' Flying Saucers or UFOs are their transport ships. They
    stay up in the sky and their bottom part opens up and anything form giant
    bugs to enemy robots can fall from it. This is also though it's weak spot.
    When it's underside doors open you can attack any part of this reddish
    opening and the UFO will be hurt.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    
    You probably won't be able to destroy one of them right away but just wait
    and kill the bugs until it opens again and fire at it until the ship
    comes falling to the ground. Once these two ships are destroyed and all
    the enemies they dropped your mission is complete.

    must walk foward some and you get a good view of the beach. From this view
    you should be able to hit all of the robots with either a sniper or rocket.
    Just attack them all until they are destroyed and then the mission will

    will be to destroy these enemies. As you start you will see that there
    are many of them on your radar. You will see one directly in front of you
    and one marching towards you from the left. You must quickly move and begin
    firing at the one in front of you and then keep moving on to the next. Try
    and keep moving the entire time for they won't be able to hit you
    with their weapons and knock you down. The AF18 is rather effective
    against them along with a rocket launcher or sniper. About a whole
    clip of the AF18 will just kill one of them and when you are shooting at
    them with it they usually cannot hit you. Just get close, maybe even under
    them, and unload. When you kill all of them you will hear a news report

    The Ravagers' Assault Spiders were engineered to be high-flying,
    silk-spinning death machines. They can leap several city blocks
    in a single jump and their spinnerets produce a sticky, acidic
    thread that is easily capable of plucking a jet or helicopter
    from the sky. The silk thread is also effective against ground
    units because it slows them down on contact. They are now one of
    the new general enemies you will fight along with the black terror ants.
    Do not get overwhelmed by them as their silk will hurt you and slow you
    down.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    As you gain control of your character you will immediately see the spiders
    jumping towards you. There are a lot of them so get ready for a fight.
    Try taking as many of them as you can out from a distance but when they get
    close be ready and use your assault rifle to take them out. They are not
    much stronger then the terror ants but their numbers are strong. Once you
    defeat the surrounding spiders the mission is cleared.
    
    Also if you want to use it their is a tank forward to your left you can get
    into and use to fight the spiders until they destroy it but it really isn't

    must go to so look at your radar and choose one to head over too to assist
    the rangers in defeating the spiders. Once you defeat one of those two
    groups of spiders head over to the other one and kill all of them. Once you

    The Ravager Fortress is a massive walking weapon. It stands taller then
    many buildings. It is a moving weapon and fortress. It can drop off
    giant bugs and the Hektor walking arms. It is also equipped with
    several laser cannons to defend itself and it's main weapon is a massive
    plasma artillery cannon when can shoot several miles away and destroy
    almost a mile in length at a time. As of right now you cannot destroy
    the fortress but do not worry as in a future mission you will be able too.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    When the level starts you will be looking forward at the mothership
    was has something else below it. Soon you will find out that the thing
    below it is some sort of fortress with a very powerful plasma artillery
    gun on it. The fortress has powerful armor and shields around it but
    do not worry as you cannot destroy it now. Your mission will just
    be to destroy all enemies it deploys and wait until the fortress
    walks away and the mission is pronounced a failure. As the level
    starts the mothership flies up into the air leaving the fortress
    behind. The fortress will then start moving towards the beach. You
    will see the fortress begin to deploy gunships. So you will have to deal
    with and destroy all of them. As the fortress gets to the beach you find
    out it has laser cannons so if you like you can target and destroy the laser
    cannons. Once the fortress reaches the beach it will stop for a second and
    deploy some walking arms which you will have to defeat. It will deploy
    about five walking arms before it turns and starts to move towards the
    city. Just ignore the fortress and defeat the enemies around you. It
    will also deploy some more gunships which you will have to deal with.
    As it moves away you will hear about how it is charging some sort
    of weapon which is found to be a massive plasma cannon which hits
    the city six miles away and destroys about 700 meters in length
    of the city.

    Description: The walking fortress is heading for Tokyo. If we don't stop
    it here and now, it's plasma cannons will destroy the entire metropolitan
    area. We need to deploy immediately, but there arenít many troops on standby.
    Having said that, there are several teams that are currently heading for
    this area.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF18
    Any powerful rocket launcher or sniper
    
    When the level starts you are shown a cutscene of the fortress walking
    through the city firing it's cannons. When you start out as Storm 1 you
    are in front of the massive fortress and it is walking towards you. Don't
    let it's foot step on you or it will hurt you. As it walks over it's hatch
    will open (do not fire at it now as while it is it's weak point you cannot
    kill it yet) and it will deploy some walking arms. As you follow the fortress
    it will continue to move around and deploy some gunships and walking arms.
    The walking arms are the most challenging part as in groups of like 5 or
    6 they can easily kill you if you get to close so I suggest constantly moving
    away from them and firing at them with some sort of rocket or sniper rifle.
    Eventually you will be ordered to retreat once you eliminate all enemies
    in the area. The gunships are not that hard as they don't hurt you that
    much, the walking arms will be the real challenge. Once they are all
    dead the mission is cleared.

    Description: The assault on the walking fortress was a failure. Also, some
    new intel just came in and the situation keeps getting worse. Giant bugs
    have been spotted outside eastern Japan and it appears they are coming
    from beneath the ground. Several bugs have been seen emerging from
    these holes. The holes need to be blown up to prevent the damage from
    spreading any further. 
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF18-RA

    When you start out run forward and to the right you will find some black
    terror ants which you must kill. Also you will find a large mound or hole
    to the right which you must destroy as that is where the black terror ants
    are coming from. After you destroy the hole and defeat all the ants another
    hole will be found and new targets will appear on your radar. So now head
    towards the new targets. When you get there you will encounter more black
    terror ants and have to destroy another hole. It's best to try and
    destroy the holes from a distance and then finish off the remaining
    bugs. After you destroy the second hole another one is found so
    look at your radar and head towards it. This hole unleashes
    even more black terror ants. Once you destroy the hole and all
    of them you hear word of yet another hole so head towards this
    one. This hole will be different though as the spiders come
    from it instead of the black ants. Another good tip may be at the 
    second hole to get into the mech suit once the second hole is destroyed
    and use it to slowly move towards the other holes and fire upon them. The
    main challenge is the final spider hole as if the spiders surround you
    it can be a very very fast death. After you destroy the spider hole the
    mission is cleared.

    Description: More bad news. It appears the giant bug nests extend into
    an underground network. The bugs have begun to reproduce within the nest.
    It's only a matter of time before they take over the planet. Their nest
    needs to be destroyed at once. We know that entering the nest to combat
    the bugs is a dangerous mission, but this is all we can do to combat this
    new threat.

    In this level you will start out in the tunnels with black terror ants
    running towards you. The tactic I used was to actually run foward while
    shooting them and get into one of the tunnels and go back as far as I can
    while shooting missiles at the enemies trying to get me since the tunnels
    are small the enemies are easily bunched up to whereas a rocket kills
    a lot of them. I stayed back in the tunnels until they stopped coming
    for me and then I slowly moved my way back up and killed the remaining
    bugs. While fighting in the tunnels towards the end you will hear a 
    report about a large 120 foot tall creature attacking the city and how
    the EDF is planning an attack on it, this will be your next mission.
    So continue finishing off the stragglers and once they are dead the
    mission is cleared.

    This enormous, dinosaur-like creature has been outfitted with powerful
    armor that gives it substantial protection from normal weapons. Despite
    its massive size, this creature can still move with alarming speed. It
    is capable of destroying massive areas with its fire breath and a
    devastating smash attack that can level buildings.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    When the level starts you see a cutscene of the Dino-mech moving through
    the city destroying things. That is your target.
    
    When you gain control of your character you can see the Dino-mech off
    in the distance. At this time I would use the Zero Laser Rifle and unload
    all of it's shots on it and then continue after that to fire the missiles
    at it until it dies. All you have to do is keep firing and keep your
    distance from the dino-mech. Once you kill it the mission is cleared.
    The battle should be rather quick.

    As you start you will see two UFOs in front of you. To complete this
    mission you must destroy both of them and all of the spiders they
    release so as the mission starts use the Zero Laser Rifle and unload
    into them. You should be able to destroy them both if you are quick
    enough. Then you just have to finish off the remaining spiders and
    the mission is then cleared.

    Description: An army of Hector Walking Arms is advancing.
    According to our intel, they are a new type equipped
    with plasma cannons, possibly a support artillery unit. They are reducing
    everything in their path to rubble. They cannot be allowed to cause any
    further destruction. You are to head out immediately and destroy them.
    
    Weapons I used:

    When you start out you will see several blips on your radar which
    are all the walking arms. If you keep moving you should be able to
    avoid their plasma cannons. Use some sort of sniper to take them out
    from a distance. After you defeat the ones on your radar several more
    will appear. Just stay your distance and keep moving and fire upon them
    all until they are all dead. When you defeat them all but about one
    you find out that you are in a trap. On both sides of a large number
    of gunships appear along with a few more of the walking robots. Continue
    to systematically take out the walking arms while shooting down a few
    gunships in between them. If you keep moving the gunships are not much
    of a threat compared to the walking arms. Once all of these enemies
    are defeated the mission is completed.

    Description: The Red Terror Ant looks just like the black version
    but as it's name suggests it is red. The red ants are tougher
    then the black ones in that they have more health and their
    physical attack is stronger. They, however, do not have a acid spit
    attack like their black counterparts.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    As you start the level a swarm of the red terror ants are right in front
    of you. You will have to kill all of these ants. They will make quick
    food of your fellow EDF soldiers so use this time to unload upon them
    with the Goliath and blow as many up as you can. Once they start coming
    towards you all you really have to do is constantly move away from them
    which makes it hard for them to attack you and well you are moving away
    use the assault rifle to slow them and then use the goliath to blow
    up several at a time. Keep doing this until the first wave is dead.
    Once they are all dead another wave of the red ants will start moving
    towards you. You will have to defeat all of them too. After you defeat
    all of them use the same tactics to defeat the third and final wave.
    Once this next wave is dead the mission is cleared.

    At the start of this mission you start in a canyon with two Walking Arms
    in front of you and the black terror ants approaching. The best thing to do
    would be either to use the mech in front of you to take out the walking arms as
    it is faster then using the sniper but once they are taken out leave it as the
    ants can easily destroy it. After the walking arms are destroyed run towards
    where they were and turn back and fight the ants. As you fight the black ants
    some more walking arms will soon start appearing from the other side of the
    level. You will have to keep moving as one of these walking arms is equipped
    with a plasma cannon. Once you take out these walking arms and the ants the
    mission is completed.

    As you start the level you should see some black terror ants in front
    of you. So head towards them and get ready to fight. The first hole
    which you have to destroy is right near them in the middle of the
    road. So quickly destroy that hole (if you use the Governor it only
    takes 3 shots to destroy a hole) and defeat the remaining bugs. Once
    you defeat all of them head off to the next group of bugs on your
    radar. The next hole is actually right around the corner from the
    one you were just at so quickly destroy it before you move on.
    After it is destroyed move on forward up the street towards the
    next one. You will encounter some Red Terror Ants along with some
    spiders at this one so be ready for them. After you destroy one
    of these holes look around as their is another nearby. After you
    destroy that the hole the final two, the spider and red terror ant hole
    is the one you have to go to so try and quickly finish off the
    nearby enemies and head over to that one to finish them off. If
    too many of them start rushing towards you then you may have 
    retreat for a little bit to finish them off and then move back towards
    the hole. Once you destroy one of them head over to the other one
    and finish the bugs off. Once they are all dead the mission is completed.

    When you start the level you will see a large amount of gunships heading
    towards you. I would suggest looking to your left and using the mech
    to take down as many as you can before it get destroyed. If you could
    also use it to take out the Walking Arms that would be useful but if not
    try and take them out from a distance using the Laser Rifle. It shouldn't
    be that hard, when I did I took out all of the gunships and the walking arms
    of the first wave and my mech still had a little over 1500 health. Now
    once they are dead brace for the second wave of enemies. The second wave
    consists of even more gunships and some walking arms which come from
    the opposite side of the level as the gunships. You must watch out though
    as these walking arms are the ones with the plasma artillery cannons. If
    you keep moving and shooting at all times you should be able to easily
    destroy all the enemies while in the mech.

    Terror Ants. Move up and help them kill all of the bugs. You have to 
    get ready for a big fight as there are a lot of black ants and they
    will overwhelm the other EDF troops rather quickly. Once you get close
    to defeating them all new targets will appear on your radar so head on
    towards them once you kill all the bugs and get ready for another fight.
    As you pass through the large pit ignore all the paths leading up and just
    move through it to the other side. At this group of bugs you will encounter
    black terror ants along with some assault spiders. As you defeat most of
    them a lot more enemies will appear on your radar so move up towards them
    and get ready for a big fight. After you move through the tunnels and

    Description: Casualties are mounting from the giant bugs' counterattacks.
    Many units have become stranded in this underground maze. The giant
    bugs are finding these units and surrounding them with greater numbers
    before collectively attacking them. Be very careful.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19 Assault Rifle
    Governer 50 Shotgun
    
    In this level you start in a little conjunction where a bunch of tunnels
    meet. Giant bugs will come out of all of these tunnels, the black and red
    terror ants along with the spiders will be attacking you so I would
    advice to pick on tunnel and kill all inside of it and then turn around
    and use that tunnel to lure the enemies in and kill them. After all enemies
    on your radar are dead the mission is cleared.
    
    Weapons I found:
    Wideshot A1 Shotgun
    FORK-A20 Missile
    Sticky Grenade Prototype

    Description: We have finally begun the last phase of our operating. There
    have been many casualties, but we have reached the deepest part of the nest.
    The core of the nest should be somewhere around there. Look for this core,
    killing any giant bug you see on the way.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19 Assault Rifle
    Governer 50 Shotgun
    
    When you start the mission move forward through the tunnels and follow
    them until you meet up with the enemy bugs which should be right
    through the next room. In the room you will meet up with some troops
    who will join you. You should be able to see the giant bugs in the
    tunnel up ahead. Once you kill all of these bugs move forward through
    the tunnel until you meet up with another group of EDF troops. When
    you meet up with them you will have to fight two groups of ants from each
    side so watch out and be ready. You can take either tunnel and as you
    go through one of them you will meet up with some EDF under attack by
    some spiders so use your shotgun or rockets to kill them off. Once you
    kill all of the spiders more will appear so look on your radar and move
    towards them. Use your shotgun or rockets to take out this new group of
    black terror ants rushing towards you. Try to keep moving to avoid their
    aciod spray. Once you defeat all of them move down the tunnel to get to
    the core of the nest. In the core you will find a massive ant.

    Description: The Queen Ant is the leader of the nest. It
    controls the giant bugs of the nest. The queen resembles
    a giant ant with some wings. It has the same acid shot
    ability as the Black Terror Ants but on a much larger
    scale. It is very powerful so watch out.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
                                             
    This is the nest's leader. Watch out as the massive ant's acid spray is
    very large and makes it so you can barely see what is going on so
    continue to fire down the tunnel until you see on your radar that the
    enemies have thinned down. If the large ant isn't dead yet just continue
    bombarding it with attacks until it does. Once it is dead kill all of
    the surrounding ants and the mission is cleared.

    Description: A unit of smaller Hector Walking Arms has invaded the city.
    It appears they were deployed from above by a UFO. The Walking Arms have
    penetrated our defense line and launched a sudden attack, bringing the city
    into a state of panic. All deployable teams are to head out there at once
    and protect the civilians. 
    
    Weapons I used:
    Cascade 2 
    Zero Laser Rifle
    
    As you start level you should be able to see 3 UFOs around the city.
    These UFOs will drop the Walking Arms so you must take them out
    as quickly as you can. Use the laser rifle to take out the UFOs.
    You should be able to take out at least one of them. Use the Cascade
    to take out the Walking Arms until the UFOs open again and then
    repeat by using the Zero Laser Rifle to take out one or maybe
    even both of then. If not then repeat the same method for the
    third one.

    Description: The Ravagers' mothership has been spotted along the coast.
    Our intel says it appears to have shut down it's functions. We suspect
    it has been forced to land there to refuel or for repairs. You are to go
    across the mountains, surprise the enemy, and destroy the mothership's
    defense fleet.
    
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19
    Zero Laser Rifle or Cascade 2
    
    When the level starts you must destroy all the UFOs. Ignore the Mothership
    as it will eventually just fly away. Quickly roll and move to the right and
    jump down onto the beach and use your Zero Laser Rifle or rockets to destroy
    one of the Motherships there. You should be able to get there and blow up
    the closest one. Then use your AF19 to kill the bugs and gunships moving
    around the area. Once you kill enough of them and the other UFO opens
    it's hatch use your Rifle or rockets again to quickly blow this one up
    before it drops too many more enemies. Then just finish up all the enemies
    on the beach. After they are all dead move up the hill and towards the other
    UFO.  If you get to the right spot you should be able to hit the opened
    hatch as you walk up the hill and destroy it. As you move you will here
    the other teams talking about how it seems the mothership is shut down
    but as you get closer to it the mothership will slowly reactivate and
    eventually just fly up into the clouds. After this happens you will be
    told to finish off all the enemies in the area and then the mission
    will be cleared. After that one is destroyed you should be able
    to see two more. One right ahead of you and one off to the right
    some. The one ahead you should be able to be sniped if you get
    yourself into the right position. Once that one is destroyed.
    Walk along the hillside to the right until you can see the final
    UFOs open hatch and blow it up. Once all the UFOs are gone the 
    Mothership will fly away and you will just have to finish off
    all the remaining bugs and gunships.

    Description: A large army of Hectors consisting of both large and miniature
    Walking Arms is advancing. You are to intercept them with the Ranger Teams
    and destroy them.
    
    Weapons I used: 
    Cascade 2
    Zero Laser Rifle
    
    In this level you will be only fighting some Walking Arms so it will
    be useful to have the Laser Rifle to unload on them until it is out
    of ammo and then use the Cascade. You start out near the tank and
    the walking mech. The walking mech is very good against the Walking
    Arms so I would say to get into that which is a little forward to your
    left and use it to destroy the Walking Arms directly in front of you.
    Then continue using it to eliminate the other Walking Arms and if
    they destroy it and then use your Zero Laser Rifle first until it
    runs out of ammo and then use the Cascade to finish off the rest of
    the Walking Arms.

    a sniper team together to take them out. Storm 1, your mission is to
    protect the sniper team.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19 Assault Rifle
    Goliath D1 Rocket Launcher
    
    In this level you start out with a group of EDF snipers all around you.
    Over the course of the mission Assault Spiders will attack from
    different sides. All you really have to do is keep firing the rockets
    at them and the snipers will help pick many of them off. The first wave
    comes from the direction you start out looking. After they are all dead
    the second wave will come from the left of where you start out. Do the
    same thing for the second wave, it shouldn't be much of a challenge.
    After they are all dead one more wave will come from behind you so
    repeat all the same tactics and the mission will be cleared.

    Description: The walking fortress is still wreaking havoc in the city.
    According to our recon team, however, the fortress is currently stationary,
    most likely for resupplying. This is our best chance. You are to make
    a surprise attack on the fortress and destroy it.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19
    Zero Laser Launcher or Cascade 2
    
    In this mission you get to meet the Ravager Fortress again. You will still
    not be able to destroy it though so don't even bother firing at it. You
    should see two UFOs with one on each side of the Fortress. Use the rifle
    or rockets to quickly destroy one of them. If you have the laser rifle
    you should be able to easily take down one. You will be attacked by
    the terror ants on the way to the UFOs so just kill them with your
    assault rifle. Once you destroy one of them the camera will lock
    onto the fortress as it starts to move. Once you can control the
    camera again quickly destroy the other UFO if you can, if not
    destroy all the nearby bugs until it opens again. Once they are
    destroyed the fortress will walk around the city deploying several
    waves of Terror Ants and Gunships. To complete the mission you just
    have to destroy all of these gunships and ants.

    Description: The walking fortress is on the offensive once again. Its
    plasma cannons are reducing one city after another to rubble. It needs to
    be destroyed, but we have yet to destroy any of these fortresses anywhere
    else in the world. It's time for use to set and example.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19
    MMF43 Sniper Rifle
    
    In this level you can actually hurt the giant fortress form it's weak spot
    which was mentioned earlier. It's weak spot is the same as the UFOs, the
    little hatch that opens to drop enemies. When the level starts you are
    shown a cutscene of the fortress walking through the city and firing it's
    massive plasma cannon as you hear your orders. When you gain control of
    your character you will see the fortress in front of you moving towards you.
    I would suggest that you quickly move and get under and behind the giant
    walking fortress. Then as it starts dropping enemies shot it's hatch unload
    with the sniper onto it. When it is closed kill as many bugs as you can
    around you. You can most likely try and ignore the Walking Arms it drops
    as they will take too long to kill. Eventually the fortress will start
    to blow up and fall over. Once it is dead the mission is cleared. So
    you don't even have to worry about the remaining enemies.

    Description: The walking fortress has been destroyed, giving us a bit
    of breathing room. Our next target is a group of giant bugs gathering in
    the mountains. Ranger Teams are already preparing for an offensive.
    Storm 1, you are to support the Ranger Teams and eliminate the giant bugs.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19
    Goliath D1
    
    In this level you will just have to kill off several groups of bugs.
    Usually I just grab the air bike and head to the left to take out the
    red ants as they are sort of the strongest. As you are fighting them
    though the spiders like to jump in the battle so you will have to be
    ready and able to take the red ants and spider out. Just kill all
    the nearby enemies and follow to where the spiders came from and finish
    off all of the spiders. Once they are dead you must head over to the
    third group of enemies the Black Terror Ants. They shouldn't be that
    hard so quickly eliminate all of them. After they are eliminated move
    over to the next group which is just more Black Ants so like before
    kill all of them. After they are dead you have one more target, some
    red Terror Ants and some Spiders. Kill as many as you can from a
    distance and then just use the AF19 to finish them off as they 
    close. Then the level should be cleared.

    Description: The walking fortress and the giant bugs' nest have been
    destroyed. We paid a high price, but things are finally looking up on
    the Japanese war front. Wait a moment, we are receiving a new report...
    Emergency! The mothership has flown into the skies above the city. It
    appears it is now ready for own final battle. You must destroy the
    mothership and its defense units.
    
    weapons I used:
    AF19
    MMF43
    
    In this mission you will get to see the mothership but you won't
    be destroying it yet, you still have awhile to go before that.
    You will start out in the street with some EDF soldiers nearby.
    You should be able to some enemies up ahead, some Black Terror
    Ants. Also be ready as there are some Walking Arms you will
    have to take out. The mothership will also deploy some 
    gunships which you will have to destroy. After many of
    these enemies are dead a giant weapon like thing will
    deploy from the bottom of the mothership. You have
    two choices with it. You can either avoid it because it
    usually doesn't hit you or fire at it until it goes away.
    So after whatever you choose to do with that just finish
    up the bugs that are roaming around and destroy the gunships.
    The mothership should eventually deploy a final wave of gunships.
    Once they are dead the mission is cleared.

    More giant bugs are pouring out of those things. Those holes need to
    be destroyed at once. Most seem to be located around the river. You can
    expect the bugs to put up fierce resistance as you get closer to the holes.
    
    Weapons I used: 
    AF19
    Zero Laser Rifle
    
    When the mission starts you will see a bunch of EDF soldiers charging
    forward ahead of you. They are charging towards some enemy bugs and
    a hole. You should be able to quickly take out the hole with the Zero
    Laser Rifle or some other rocket or sniper from a distance. As you get
    closer you will find that all of the holes in this mission are in the
    river and around it. So you should be able to quickly take them and if
    the Laser Rifle runs out of ammo use unload onto them with the assault
    rifle. Once you destroy all of the holes and kill the bugs which 
    came from them the mission is cleared.

    Description: The units sent in to destroy the alien nests were intercepted
    and are now surrounded by several large UFOs. It appears the UFOs are
    deploying giant bugs to attack the units. Given the incoming numbers,
    there is no way reinforcements can arrive in time. But... Storm 1
    is with them. Maybe they can pull of another victory.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19
    Zero Laser Rifle or Cascade 2 or Goliath D1
    
    When you start in this level you will see a large circle of UFOs around
    you. They will all be dropping bugs so you will in for a fight. Right
    at the beginning you should be able to take out at least 1 UFO right
    away. Then shoot at another if they are still open. When they close
    get ready to fight some bugs. Your EDF troops will be able to 
    kill some of the bugs but they will be wiped out eventually.
    So just keep switching from taking out the bugs to taking
    out a UFO one or two at a time. Once all the UFOs are dead
    finish off the remaining bugs and the mission is cleared.

    been sent in to stop the beasts, equipped with the latest Assault Laser
    Guns. You are to join them in combat.
    
    Weapons I used: 
    Zero Laser Rifle
    Goliath D1
    
    This mission is just like the Dino-mech mission but instead of only
    one Dino-mech you now get to fight two at the same time. There are
    two ways you can choose to beat this mission. You can choose to use
    your weapons by unloading the Zero Laser Rifle into one and then
    firing rockets at it or you can get into the nearby mech and use it
    to fire it's cannon and plasma shots at the dino-mechs. If you keep
    constantly shooting you should be able to take both of them out
    rather easily and without even having to leave the mech.

    Weapons I used: 
    AF19 Assault Rifle
    Goliath D1
    
    In this mission you are back inside of a canyon, hence the name return.
    In the mission you will start in the middle of the canyon with a squad
    of EDF soldiers. You will have to fight the Red Terror Ants which will
    approach from both sides of the canyon. Use the Goliath to hit them
    as they approach from a distance and then use the AF19 when they get
    close. The EDF troopers around you should help some and if you can take
    out enough of the Red Terror Ants some of them will survive. After you
    defeat all of the ants a second wave of them will move in to attack you.
    Do the same thing for the second wave and once they are dead the mission
    is cleared.

    You are to act as a Scout Team and sneak into the city, hiding behind
    buildings as you approach the enemy to take them by surprise. This is a
    dangerous mission. Good luck.
    
    Weapons I used:
    Zero Laser Rifle
    AF19
    
    In this level you will start out in an unusual place, on the balcony of a
    building. You should be able to see about two UFOs around the area and a
    bunch of gunships flying around. You can choose to attack the gunships
    with the assault rifle or you can choose to quickly jump off of the
    building and aim up at the UFO to the right and blow it up with the 
    zero laser rifle before the hatch closes. This UFO also happens to be
    the one deploying the Assault Spiders so it will be good to quickly
    take it out. After this one there are two more UFOs, one dropping
    the Black Terror Ants and the one dropping the Red Terror Ants. You
    can choose what one you want to attack first but most likely you will
    arrive at the one dropping the Black Ants. Just shoot the ants until
    it opens it's hatch and take it out and then repeat for the third one.
    After they are destroyed finish off the remaining bugs and gunships
    and the mission will be completed.

    is controlling the bugs. This leader is apparently enormous and highly
    combat capable. Be careful.
    
    Weapons I used:

    In this mission you have to fight a lot of giant bugs along with the
    even larger ones, the nest leaders. When you start the level you
    should be able to see the enemies in the distance. It is best to
    take out all of the smaller bugs nearby before trying to take
    one their leaders as the leaders are best to try and take on one
    on one. In this level you will encounter about 3 of the massive
    spiders.

    Description: The King Spider is a leader of the spiders.
    They basically just look like even larger spiders. They have
    the same attack of shooting out web at you so make sure you 
    avoid the giant web. Mainly they are just larger and tougher
    spiders.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    All you really have to do for this level is systematically
    move and eliminate the spiders first and then their leader
    either last or when it starts attacking you. Once you defeat
    all the enemies on our radar then the mission is completed.

    Description: A nest has been discovered in the mountains. Giant bugs are
    pouring out of the nest's hole in huge numbers. The hole needs to be
    destroyed to put a stop to the influx of bugs. In addition, it appears
    that the bugs are now being protected by Walking Arms. Fight your way
    to the nest and destroy the hole leading into it.
    
    When you start the level you will be by a few groups of EDF soldiers.
    Around you are a few vehicles around if you want to use them.
    You can then use your radar to head towards what group of enemies
    you want. You will have to destroy around 4 holes. Two of them will
    be letting out Black Terror Ants, one of them Red Terror Ants, and
    the final the Assault Spiders. Each of these holes is guarded by
    a Walking Arms os be ready to face them. If you can run under them
    just unload into them with the AF19 and they will die eventually. 
    After all of the holes are destroyed and the bugs killed the mission
    is cleared.

    Description: The giant bugs are becoming more aggressive. It appears they
    have dug a new nest and are beginning to reproduce. We cannont allow them
    to further increase their numbers any further. We need to go underground
    and exterminate the giant bugs once and for all. The tunnel advance team
    is to enter the tunnel and secure the area.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19 Assault Rifle
    Governor 50 Shotgun or a rocket launcher or sniper rifle
    
    For this mission you are back in a tunnel like environment, this time
    to completely destroy the final giant bug nest. When you gain control
    of your character you start out towards the top of a large pit much
    like before. I would advise that you don't drop down as there are
    tons of spiders down at the bottom that would quickly kill you. Just
    follow the paths down and shoot the spiders from a distance as you see
    them. Just keep going down and attacking them. Once they are all dead
    the mission is cleared and you move on to the next extermination 
    mission.

    Description: A new nest has been discovered underground. We have confirmed
    a large number of aliens in the upper reaches of the nest. You are to climb
    up the pit and eliminate the threat.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19
    Zero Laser Rifle
    
    In this mission you will start out up on one of the paths leading up the pit.
    You will have to travel up the paths and destroy the holes that the bugs are
    emerging from. All you have to do is follow the paths upward until you get to
    a hill and then shoot the holes with the laser rifle to quickly take them out.
    If you run out of ammo with the rifle then just unload into them with the AF19
    when you get close. The mission shouldn't be that challenging if you keep moving
    up and destroying all the holes. Once they are gone finish off the remaining
    bugs and get ready to move to the next part of the extermination, in other
    words the mission is cleared.

    Description: We have reached the deepest part of the nest. The enemy is
    putting up heavy resistance, but not a single one of them must be allowed
    to survive. You are to continue fighting the enemy until the nest is
    completely empty of all threats.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19 Assault Rifle
    Goliath D1 Rocket Launcher
    
    This is the final extermination mission and the final mission in the
    tunnels. In this mission you will get to take out some spiders.
    Just use your radar and continue to move forward using the rocket
    launcher to eliminate groups of the spiders and if you have to
    use the AF19 to kill them when they get close and you have to
    reload. Once they are all dead them mission is completed and it
    will be time to return to the surface.
    
    
    Mission #47:

    Description: The alien nest has been destroyed! A large portion of their
    population has been wiped out, with the lord of their nest forced out
    to the surface. He has gathered his remaining followers for an assault.
    It is time for a showdown with the giant bugs.
    
    Weapons I used: 
    AF19 Assault Rifle
    Goliath D1 Rocket Launcher
    
    Now the battle to kill the giant bugs is taken to the surface. This time
    you will have to fight both Queen Ants and King Spiders in the same mission.
    When you start the level you should able to see some Terror Ants up ahead
    and one of the Queen Ants up at the top of the Space Needle. You can either
    snipe it from a distance or even if you like take the nearby helicopter
    and fly up and kill it. After it is dead you should be able to see
    another of the massive bugs nearby most likely one of the Spider Kings.
    You can choose to continue using the helicopter until it is destroyed
    or just fire at it with the rocket launcher until it dies or even
    use the AF19 if you like. Just keep moving. You should be able to 
    see and avoid the massive spider's web shots due to their size.
    Now there are still two more Queen Ants and two more King Spiders
    left. So for now just finish off all the smaller bugs around you
    before you try and confront the large ones. Choose what one you
    want to target and try to kill it from a distance. Then repeat
    the same strategy with the other three. Once they are all dead
    kill the remaining normal sized giant bugs and the mission
    will be cleared.

    Description: The lord of the giant bugs has been killed. This has, however,
    caused the remaining giant bugs to become even more aggressive. Every giant
    bug across the country is now making a beeline for our location. Troops, 
    get ready to fight the largest enemy army yet!
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19
    Goliath D1 or Cascade 2 or Volcano-3W
    
    This mission is rather difficult, even more so on the higher difficulties.
    You will be swarmed with a large amount of enemies. So you must be ready
    and learn to be on the move while taking out the bugs. Soon after you 
    take control of your character you should see a massive wave of enemy
    bugs charging towards you from the direction you are facing. Try and 
    take out as many of the bugs you can from a distance as if too many
    get around you then you will die rather quick. Just keep moving back
    while shooting at the bugs. When the bugs reach the other EDF soldiers
    and attack them use this extra time to take out more bugs. You should
    be able to hopefully take out the first wave before they have a
    chance to get close to you. After you finish of all of them the second
    wave of enemies comes towards you but this time from two opposite
    directions. It would be good to choose the closest group and keep
    firing into them and kill as many as you can before they get close.
    Hopefully you will be able to kill off most of one of the groups
    before the other one gets too you. Once it does though you will
    have to keep moving away from them while shooting back to kill
    them. Use the AF19 to slow them and then blast them away with
    some rockets. One thing you have to avoid is getting webbed up
    by the spiders and then being surrounded by the Red Terror Ants.
    If this happens you will most likely die rather quickly. After
    you kill all of this second wave you will have to defeat one
    more. This time three groups of bugs will attack from three
    different directions. Usually most of the bugs will move in
    and attack the remaining EDF soldiers so if some are alive 
    use this time to your advance and take out as many bugs as
    possible. If you stay far back and keep moving you can hopefully
    kill most of the bugs before they get too close. Once they do 
    however just use the same tactics as before and constantly move
    away while firing. Once they are all dead the mission is completed.

    Description: Emergency! Elite Red Gunships are approaching. These ships
    managed to destroy our European command center. A direct assault will
    almost certainly result in massive casualties. A small squad of our best
    troops has been assembled to surprise them and take them out before
    they can recover.

    Description: The Red or Elite Gunships are basically just gunships
    that are colored red and have more armor. 
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In this level your only enemy is the Elite gunships. If you keep
    moving throughout the level you most likely won't get hurt that much
    Just keep shooting the FORK-A20 in their direction and the missiles
    will harm then. Then when they get close use the AF19. You will find
    that they can take a lot more damage then the normal gunships so
    just keep firing at them and they will blow up eventually. Once you
    blow them all up the mission is over.

    Description: A new type of alien creature has appeared. It appears to be
    a cyborg version of the Vallak Dino-mech. Several units were already
    deployed to combat the creature, but we have been informed that we had
    nearly 100% casualties due to the creature's tremendous firepower.
    We will deploy three Ranger Teams to provide backup. You are to go
    with them and destroy the beast.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Description: While similar in appearance to the Dino-Mech, this
    unknown creature appears to have been biomechanically altered by
    The Ravagers. Heavier armor has been added to protect the beast's
    soft spots and its arms have been removed to make room for two
    massive laser cutting cannons.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This whole mission is just fighting against this unknown Dino-mech
    hybrid. When it starts just unload all the Zero Laser Rifle shots
    into it and then use the missile launcher to fire keep firing at
    the creature until it is defeated. The mission itself shouldn't 
    be that challanging or long.

    Description: With the exception of our division, EDF forces around have
    been beaten to the brink of defeat. Without reinforcements available, our
    defeat too, seems inevitable. A large division is gathering in the ruins
    of what was once Tokyo. It appears they are preparing for an all-out
    assault. We will issue a preemptive strike and fight back no matter what
    the cost is!
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19
    Zero Laser Rifle or Cascade 2
    
    In this level you will have to destroy the final UFOs, there are 5 of
    them. Right when the level starts use whatever weapon you chose to
    quickly eliminate at least one or maybe two if you are lucky. Then
    well you wait for the others to reopen up use your AF19 to attack
    the giant bugs. The UFOs may even drop some Walking Arms so be sure
    to take them out for they won't start blasting you as you try to
    destroy the UFOs. Just keep doing this process until you get close
    enough to each of the UFOs to destroy them. Once they are dead
    along with the bugs then the mission is cleared.

    Description: The enemy army division has been destroyed, but other units
    scattered throughout the country have changed course and are headed for
    our location. We are now surrounded. It appears all is lost. We may have
    no chance, but we will show the Ravagers that the EDF will never back
    down until the last of us has fallen.
    
    Weapons I used: 
    AF19 but use the AF20 if you got it
    Cascade 2 or some other rocket or sniper
    
    When you gain control of Storm 1 you will be with some EDF soldiers and
    you should be able to see a large enemy army in front of you. This is
    one of the final missions so it will be tough. You should be able to
    see almost every normal enemy, the Black and Red Terror Ants, some Walking
    Arms, and some Gunships. First I would advise you use the nearby mech to
    take out all the enemy bugs and maybe even a Walking Arm or two before
    they overwhelm and destroy it. Once it is dead use your AF19 to finish
    the rest of the enemies off. Once they are all dead the mission isn't 
    over yet. You will then see two UFOs drop down from the sky and start
    to drop more enemies. Some Elite gunships will also be flying in so
    get ready to fight those. Right when you see the UFOs come down
    see if you can quickly destroy at least one when it opens and then
    be ready to destroy the other when it reopens it's hatch. Once you
    destroy both of them and finish off the remaining giant bugs and
    the Elite gunships the mission will be cleared and it is time to
    fight the mothership in the final mission.

    Description: The mothership has finally shown its true form. It appears
    it is intent on destroying us and putting an end to our existence. There
    is nowhere to run. We will gather our remaining troops and conduct one
    final assault on the mothership.
    
    Weapons I used:
    AF19 or AF20
    Cascade 2 or Goliath D1 or one of the high Lysanders if you found one.
    
    In this mission you will actually be able to fight the Mothership and even
    destroy it. It will be a challenge but you can do it. When you gain control
    of your character you will be by a few squads of EDF troopers. If you can
    aim up and take out the UFOs around the mothership when they open for they
    can't drop any more enemies. Then just wait and take out any enemies that
    come close to you. After a short amount of time you will see the Mothership
    open it's bottom hatch and deploy the giant weapon which you saw in an
    earlier level. As soon as the giant weapon deploys began to fire at it
    constantly. you must keep moving as you do this. After some time of firing
    the weapon will drop from the mothership and crash into the ground. While
    your teammates will think this is victory they are wrong. Panels will
    float off the mothership and hover around it. Each of this panels is
    a laser cannon. You must keep moving at all times and watch for the bottom
    of the mother ship to open and unleash it's core which is a glowing red
    object much like the other alien vehicle's weak spots. After it gets damaged
    some more the mothership will deploy even more cannons. You will just have
    to remember that even with all the craziness you must focus your weapons
    on the core when you can see it. Once you see it start exploding just keep
    moving and run away from it. After it hits the ground and explodes you will
    here the general talking some and then the mission will be completed.
    
    You have now completed Earth Defense Force 2017. The credits will then come
    up but you can easily skip them. If you want to get all the achievements you
    will have to replay all these levels 4 more times. Also to get all the weapons
    you will be replaying them some more.
