None

Hellespont 1

Objectives Challenge Maniac (optional)
Eliminate pirates
Ship Choices Hellcat
Other Friendly Ships None
NAV 1
Wave 1
1 Hellcat
Wave 2
2 Razor

Notes

  • Challenging Maniac isn't essential but it could serve as useful practice before the real fight.
  • When the pirates arrive, you have to wait for your guns to recalibrate before you can fight so just keep dodging the fire until you can return fire. You have a full load of missiles against these two bad guys so use them freely.
  • There's nothing you can do to save the Orlando depot so just continue on to Bluepoint Station.

    Outcome

    Success / Failure go to Hellespont 2.

    Hellespont 2

    Objectives Escort Transport to jump point
    Defend station
    Ship Choices Hellcat, Longbow
    Other Friendly Ships Transport at Nav 1
    NAV 1
    2 Razor
    NAV 2
    2 Razor
    NAV 3
    4 Thunderbolt

    Notes

  • The two wings of Razors shouldn't give you much trouble since they'll focus on the transport. Just get on their tails and wipe them out.
  • At Nav 1 you won't be able to move on until you move to within 1000 klicks of the transport and at Nav 2, you won't be able to move on until the transport jumps out.
  • When there are only two Thunderbolts left at Nav 3, the remaining two will run away. Stay about 10,000 klicks from them and follow them. When your computer reports mission complete, turn away and head for home.

    Outcome

    Success go to Hellespont 3a. Failure go to Hellespont 3b.

    Hellespont 3a

    Objectives Destroy pirate forces
    Ship Choices Longbow
    Other Friendly Ships 2 Hellcat
    BETWEEN LEXINGTON AND NAV 1
    4 Thunderbolt
    NAV 1
    1 Frigate
    Unlimited waves of 2 Arrow and 2 Thunderbolt

    Notes

  • Since you succeeded in your last mission, you get an easy ride here. There are four of you against four Thunderbolts so they shouldn't give you too much trouble. The best way to handle the battle at Nav 1 is to head straight for the Frigate and take it out otherwise you'll just find yourself facing infinite waves of fighters. Contrary to what the briefing said, missiles and guns do hurt capships as well as torpedoes, but since you have plenty of torps you might as well make use of them if you need to.

    Outcome

    Success / Failure go to Tyr 1.

    Hellespont 3b

    Objectives Destroy pirate forces
    Ship Choices Longbow
    Other Friendly Ships 2 Hellcat
    NAV 1
    4 Razor
    NAV 2
    4 Razor
    NAV 3
    4 Razor
    NAV 4
    1 Frigate
    2 Arrow
    2 Razor

    Notes

  • Your loss in the last mission means you'll be forced to face more fighters. Your only option is to handle them as best as you can while still leaving enough firepower to take out the frigate. Contrary to what the briefing said, missiles and guns do hurt capships as well as torpedoes, but since you have plenty of torps you might as well make use of them if you need to.

    Outcome

    Success / Failure go to Tyr 1.

    Mission : Difficulty Levels WC3 Vs. WC4
    Comments : The difficulty levels (at least for Mac) are MUCH tougher for WC4 than WC3. Don't get discouraged if you can beat WC3 on nightmare and find even lower levels of WC4 difficult.On nightmare: 2 WC4 bogies=over 4 WC3 bogies/Wingmen die faster 2.

    Mission : Nightmare Difficulty Level
    Comments : Take heart if you want to win on nightmare. Since the last post, I've played through the game on nightmare and will post a few tips to help you get through.

    Mission : Ship Choices For Nightmare Level
    Comments : Nightmare Level: Except for the Dragon, choose the faster ship whenever you're given a choice. 1 missile=death regardless of armor and you need to fly close before firing to prevent enemy missile decoys.

    Mission : Hellespont 1
    Comments : Maniac takedown, easiest way: while he talks, come to a full stop right next to his ship, aiming at him. Once you reply to him and he turns hostile, fire away with full lasers. You will cause about 50% damage to him, making the rest much easier.
