For a sturdy and effective defense follow these instructions:
1. Build a line of bunkers (not moaters).
2. Build a hardcrete wall just behind the bunkers (you could put in hard points
they don't hurt!).
3. Put a line of guard towers behind the wall.
4. Build another hardcrete wall behind the towers.
5. Build mortar pits 2 spaces behind the wall.
Note: for a surprise put cyborgs in-between the 2 walls (but leave the
towers) this works cause when the enemy breaks through the wall they come
pouring out discouraging further attack.
Getting Rank & Fuel in Level One
In the PC version of Warzone, mission one has no timer so you can lets the game
build up oil over night. But even better-you can have your guys build up rank.
The second and third base will constantly send out troops if you stay near it
and do not destroy the factory, power generator or oil derrik. By constantly
rotating my troops I know have 10 specials, 1 hero, 30 Elites and a few
Say Hello to
Build ripple rocket enplacements grondshakers ect at a safe postion outside the
enemy base (with a few hardpoints and AA sites just incase) Then WATCH THE
When attacking a base that contains NEXUS 'converters' - technology that
converts units from your team to NEXUS units - approach with indirect firing
units like the groundshaker, pepperpot, bombard etc. These units maintain a
larger distance than others thus avoiding to be NEXUSsed.
Build a few vehicles with the heavy weapons you would use as ground instalations,
they are mobile and cheaper than the structures. They have limited use though so
dont replace your base with vehicles. they do a good job of defence until you
have something better than machene guns!
Destroy Long Range Defenses
When you have tech level 3... With VTOL, destroy long range defenses in enemy
base (mortar, bombard, howitzer...), start destroying energy generator to stop
oil production for a while. In this time, prepare a cyborg transport, 4 laser
cyborg, 4 scourge cyborg and 2 repair cyborg. Send the transport and cyborgs
near the enemy base (behind is better) and start destruction... For easier use
create two groups with cyborgs : 1 with laser, the second with scourge.
Defend with Towers
Always Make Sure Your Base Is Well Defended With Towers. Pits. Bunkers.
Hardpoints. And Enplacements Before You Attack Nexus. The Pardigm. And The
Colletive. While You Are At It, Dont Forget To Put Air Defenses In Your Base
Too, Sense They Will Attack With VTOLS Also. You Might Want To Put Defenses At
The Back Of Your Base, So They Cant Get In That Way Either.
Base/SA Missile Attacking
When attacking a base that has SA missiles, don't just go in right away with a
VTOL squad - no matter how many you use. You might get away with it, but it will
claim enourmous resources for rebuilding the lost units. Usually you could not
see all the SA missile bunkers, so you would know what you started when it's too
That Spare Time
Don't ever finish your mission with a lot of spare time. Instead, use the spare
time to research artifacts and to fortilify you base.
VTOLs cannot go into unexplored territory, to solve this send them on patrol by
selecting patrol from the right mouse button menu and assigning them to the
The Warzone 2100 manual does a good job of informing you that VTOL aircraft can
strike at anything. Its high speed also makes it ideal for reconaissance
purposes, but here's a use that is not mentioned and easy to overlook:
Recovering artifacts via VTOL from enemy bases. This is simple to do, and can be
done while placing only one unit at risk! It is especially easy if all of the AA
defenses have been eradicated and you want to recover artifacts before taking
down the anti-tank defenses.
