Bomber Crew - Achievement guide & roadmap

Guide & roadmap

A good fun FTL-like with a cartoony WWII bomber.

Pretty easy on the achievements; most you'll get naturally through your playthrough, and most of the rest are easy to deliberately get. The only two to watch out for - aside from keeping your whole crew alive for Seven Survive Seven and Tour Of Duty - are Ace of Aces and Qualified; concentrate on levelling up your crew and make sure to find and kill Aces whenever you see a mission with one available.

Bear in mind you can grind out each campaign segment by repeating all the non-critical missions as much as you like, they randomly regenerate after each attempt (technically, each time you enter the hanger to select one, whether you fly or not...)

Story

Bomber Crew

Complete the first mission

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r132834631

Mission Success

Return to the airbase having successfully bombed all targets

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r900713674

Target Destroyed

Destroy an enemy target

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r977192706

Ace Encounter

Encounter an Enemy Ace

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r499880864

Aces will be randomly present in the missions in each campaign segment. Besides choosing a mission with an ace in it and flying you don't need to do anything to 'encounter' them... ...they will find you!

Ace in the Hole

Defeat an Enemy Ace

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r196874929

Note that missions are randomly re-generated even if you just save & return to main menu and come back in. you can use this to good effect to help get aces to appear... ..and to get them to appear in an easier type of mission!

The Bunker

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r116694653

Complete the campaign

Grind

Sinking Feeling

Sink 5 Submarines

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r531429103

It will be mostly impossible to miss this as you go through the story.

Fifty Fighters

Destroy 50 enemy fighters

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r902931355

Twenty Targets

Destroy 20 enemy targets

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r602998895

Fifty Fighters Five Times

Destroy 250 enemy fighters

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r669528505

Two hundred Targets

Destroy 200 enemy targets

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r234793761

This will take a lot of grinding - even if you're repeatedly grinding the missions in each campaign segment to earn the cash for plane upgrades.

Note that you can bomb any random enemy buildings to count against this - even the optional photo op recon objectives (if you're nimble you can get a photo and bomb it in one pass over!). If you bomb on a first pass and photo the wreckage on the 2nd pass you will still get the recon photo credit. Do this on every mission to help get there more quickly...

Double Qualified

Fully level up a crew member in two skills

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r914744147

Once at level 5, in the Training screen you can select a secondary skill for each crew member. XP per mission gets split between the primary and secondary skill.

Rookie

Fly 10 missions

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r690634789

Experienced

Fly 25 missions

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r375865763

Veteran

Fly 40 missions

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r188255665

Four of a kind

Defeat 4 Enemy Aces (in one campaign)

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r577818979

See Ace of Aces.

Ace of Aces

Defeat all Enemy Aces (in one campaign)

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r379947563

There is one ace per campaign segment, so 8 in all. Ish. Make sure you get one in each segment - but if lucky you may get 2 in a segment (I got 2 in the 5th segment). They will be randomly present on the randomly generated missions in each segment. Keep grinding the missions until you get the ace. They will often take two attempts/missions to kill as they will usually escape the first time (assuming you're not hanging about in the mission!).

Ofc aces are tough; upgrade stuff before attempting and don't be afraid to run away and try again later if you're getting battered.

Objective

Winging it

Repair an engine mid-flight

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r836103099

you can send a dude (preferably the engineer) to repair the engine if damaged; he will climb out along the wing to do it. This should be easy to get; engine damage will be inevitable as you go through the missions.

NB don't emergency dive while he is out there... ...he will fall off and die!

Seven Survive Success

Complete a successful mission with all 7 crew surviving

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r291394752

Photographer

Take a photo of an intel site

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r729206737

Most missions will have an optional objective for this. Use someone in the bomber position to do this, the bomb bay doors do not need to be open.

Bail Out!

Bail out your entire crew

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r229237783

you need parachutes for everyone for this - which means you will need around $10k to buy the equipment stations.

Use the command on the Pilot to get the rest of the crew to bail, then take the pilot manually to a remaining parachute and then to one of the parachute icons to get him to bail too - the achievement will then pop pretty much immediately.

One Engine

Land at the airbase with only one working engine

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r538279187

Seven Survive Seven

Complete 7 missions with the same 7 crew surviving

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r988993129

Tour Of Duty

Have one of your crew survive 30 missions

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r496833819

Running On Fumes

Complete a mission and land at the airbase with less than 5% fuel remaining

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r760420174

Its easy to do this at the end of the mission by instructing the pilot to land but leaving the gear up; he will circle round and round making landing attempts. When the fuel gauge nears the bottom of the red part lower the gear and you'll land pretty quick. Use the Boost option to consume fuel more quickly while circling. Also time acceleration.

Skeleton Crew

Complete a mission and land at the airbase with 2 or fewer crew members surviving

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r130888979

Puit your crew naked (or clothing with minimal armour), and make your plane as tough as possible. Except the pilot and one other (navigator!).

Or, put 5 people out on the wing with no parachute and do an emergency dive...

Good luck...

NB to avoid messing up your campaign progress, do this at the beginning of the campaign (first mission), or back up your saves first (C:\Users\%Username\AppData\LocalLow\Runner Duck\Bomber Crew)

V1 Destroyer

Shoot down a V1 Rocket

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r930819799

You'll see these in the 2nd portion of the game, they can be tagged like enemy fighters and should be easy to shoot down. you should get this easily.

Focused Four

Use 'focus' on all 4 gunner stations at once

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r566070344

You'll need to have selected gunnery as a secondary skill for two people (bomber and mechanic maybe) - and level this up to 5 to get access to the Focus ability.

Grand Slam

Destroy a target using the Grand Slam bomb

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r121845912

Available from the 6th campaign segment. Must be launched from High altitude - so get the thermals on your crew!

NB can be done from Medium altitude just after selecting to go to High - but in this case aim a chunk after the target in the bombsight crosshair; maybe the diameter of a large base.

Qualified

Fully level up a crew member

This div will be opened in a lightbox achievement-lightbox-r328763858

Remember they level up more slowly if a secondary skill is selected. Keep one member with no secondary so they level the primary more quickly (the XP is split between primary and secondary).

Level 12 is maxxed. Level 4 for the secondary for Medic.
