Red face Tips for "Neverending Legend" achievement

Any tips for Neverending Legend achievement?

For example what units and tactics do you use for directness gold medal. I am stuck on Baghdad Mayhem Rearmed. So far got only silver. Any observation about how 'direct' the route has to be?

Didn't try Tokyo Raid directness yet.

Crawler, Shield, Crawler, Supply, Shield, Supply.
This was what I used. Just aim for the generator for every wave, taking the shortest path, and destroy the generator as quick as possible.

In my opinion, Tokyo Raid directness is the hardest of all. You need to be lucky.

Thanks Shawn, I managed to get through Baghdad Mayhem Reloaded with Dragon, Crawler, Crawler and Supply. Dragon is nice for quick destruction of generator because it has one flamethrower pointing at and destroying the generator. All other weapons keep firing at towers rather then generator. But perhaps as long as you on the path adjacent to the generator, it does not matter how long it takes to destroy it.

Last gold medal I still need is directness on Tokyo Raid. I agree it looks like the most difficult one. Obvious problem is that I can't seem to build up strong enough force because I just don't get chance to destroy enough towers/collect carusaurum to buy units and upgrades. Eventually I run out of repairs and that's it.

What about the levels where you need to destroy something before you can move on? What even is the shortest path there? Do you have any observations or tips?

Well, you really need to be lucky, especially the first few stages.
On my final try, this was what I did:

same setup as before, I used crawler, shield, crawler, supply, shield, supply. 2 Repair supplies, and later upgrade to 1 smoke and 1 decoy.

If I can't get enough money on stage 1 to make at least 3 crawlers, or 2 crawlers + $100, restart. I took a long route collecting as much money as I can, but stick to one path, no rewinding or circling. I either use up my air-strike here, or on the next stage, on groups of blasters for money.

If I can't get a nice path on stage 2, restart. (example, I restart if a head-on scorcher is unavoidable, or take too long to avoid)

On stages where you can collect power-ups, run the army straight to the bridge, and use air-strike on cars to get the power-ups on the sides, get as much air-strikes as possible.

GOT IT!!! Every single achievement.

I have used my typical setup of dragon and crawlers. Since you only have only 200 at the start, I bought two APC but later sold one. At the end, I had dragon, four crawlers and the APC. I have lost one crawler early but did not abort the mission.

Observations: you don't have to take the absolutely shortest path in many cases. When you are told to collect carusarum, I definitely did not take shortest path and picked up a few pieces. When you have to destroy something before you can proceed, it looks like you can take as much time as you need and don't have to rush it as long as the way is closed because at least one mandatory tower is left. This is true also for protecting transport and even in case you have to protect VIP unit, you can deviate from shortest path a bit.

Great idea of using airstrike to access the powerup caches, did not think of it and it is so obvious.

I guess that's Anomaly game over for me ... Now to the next game from the sale waiting to be played.

Hm.... I'm definitely missunderstanding something about the Tokyo Raid :x
I succeeded quite easily to achieve Gold Medals on Bagdad. But on Tokyo Raid, I'm trying to complete Effectiveness and Destruction Medals at the same time and I don't know why, but randomly (or for something I don't understand) I lose... Fail message appears and I don't understand. Of course I'm talking for round where there's not time objectives or anything like that.

So if someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong ..?

Seems like a bug.
A fail could only come from:
- Army destroyed and no money to rebuild.
- Time runs out (timer mission)
- VIP died (escort mission)
- Plane died (plane mission)

That's precisely my point, thanks for your answer.
I don't see any others reasons that the ones you mentionned.
I'll maybe create another topic to see if some have the same problem :x

I didn't want to create special thread, decided to use this one. Here is my tip for Tokio Raid Directness Gold medal.

During the 1st wave I took a long route to get as much money as possible. So after it I had Crawler + Crawler + 220 money. After the 2nd wave I sold one of the crawlers, so at the beginning of the 3rd wave I had Dragon + Shield + Crawler. I used them till the end. Somewhere in the middle I lost my upgraded Shield, but had lots of money, so I bought another one Shield immediately and upgraded it once.

On stages where you need to collect power-ups, I drove straight to the bridge, and used airstrikes to get more power-ups. The 17th wave was really harsh with this combo. The 18th wasn't. I had 6 smokes, 5 decoys, 0 bombs and tons of repairs before attacking CPU. Made two circles around it. Got the medal.
