Written by Dilligan   /   Jan 14, 2021    


This is a short guide on how to complete each challenge and how to make some of the more challenging ones easier to beat. I have include step by step with screenshots to complete each challenge with ease.

Guide to Combat Master Challenges



Points System



  • Each challenge will have its minimum score you will need in order to beat the challenge.
  • You will have to play and beat each challenge on I am death Incarnate (gold).
  • Playing on Uber will be harder, but not really noticeable. The main difference is more soldiers to give you more points and opportunities to pass the challenge.



How Points Work

  • Each soldier type will have their base points.
  • Bonus points are rewarded for head shots, silent kills, knife throws, explosives, and combos by killing multiple soldiers in a short period.
  • Don't forget about the kampfpistole to get combo bonus points by killing multiple soldiers at once.

Soldier Types

Drones

  • Base (100).
  • Potential (200), but need to shoot its rocket gun weapon right on the spot.
  • Should only see them during the Caves and Paradon Bridge Challenges.

Basic Soldiers

  • Base (400) + headshot (200) + stealth kill (200) = 800.
  • Potential 1,000 points with a knife throw to the head for a silent head shot kill.

Elite Soldiers

  • Base (600) + headshot (200) + stealth kill (200) = 1,000.
  • Potential 1,200 points with a knife throw to the head for a silent head shot kill.

Marksman Soldiers

  • Base (600) + headshot (200) = 800.

Heavy Soldiers

  • Base (800) + explosive kill/the pack on its back (200) = 1,000.

Commanders

  • Base (900) + headshot (200) + silent kill (200) = 1,100.
  • Potential (1,300) = base (900) + silent knife throw to the head (400).
  • Not always, but if possible I recommend at least taking out 1 commander right away and leave the other one for last.

Panzerhunds

  • Base (500) + headshot/ (200) = 700.
  • Only available during the paradon bridge challenge.

SuperSoldiers

  • Base (1,200).
  • Unsure if there are bonuses, everytime I killed one its always been 1,200 with no bonuses.

Zombies/crawlers

  • Base (300) + headshot (200) = 500.
  • Potiential (1,000+). When you get to the last 3 challenges what you need to do is headshot soldiers with 1 bullet which will give you bonus points and it will turn the soldiers into zombies.

Example: elite soldier with headshot (800) + turning into zombie and killing it with headshot (500) = 1,300 points. Plus more points if you can do it quick enough for combo kills.

Only available during the last 3 challenges.

Research Centre



  • Research centre combat master.
  • Achieve gold medal for this challenge map.
  • Obtain a minimum score of 11,300.
  • Unlocks by completing Prologue.
  • Beatable on Death Incarnate.

Walkthrough

What not to do

Do not sit in the back room for too long, you will constantly have grenades thrown at you. Eventually the soldiers will move in and rush you on both sides making it more difficult to stay alive.

What to do instead

When you first start out, turn around, run in the back room and fill up on health, armor, and ammo as quickly as possible. Once that is done, basically run in a circle around the room while staying under the walk way/railing for cover. This will prevent grenades from being thrown at you and you can pick them off one by one instead of letting the soldiers clutter and build up in one area.

Prison Docks



  • Prison docks combat master.
  • Achieve gold medal for this challenge map.
  • Obtain a minimum score of 29,800.
  • Unlocks by completing Chapter 2.
  • Beatable on Death Incarnate.

Walkthrough

When you first start out you should be able to take out the commander and get a score of 1,300 points. After that, work your way around to the left and get to the crates.



At this point you should have taken out 1 commander, 4 soldiers, and 1 dog.



Crawl Space

  • Just be patient holding the area as you pick off the soldiers.
  • You will notice the soldiers will stand in 3-4 spots for easy pickings.
  • Should not have issues with grenades being thrown.
  • Just hold the point until 2 waves have been cleared.



Once the waves have been cleared, make your way to the boat and grab the heavy gun.



Once you grab the heavy gun, make your way to the last commander and take him out. After this its pretty straight forward.

  • Fill up with health, armor, and ammo if needed.
  • Wave 1 when you press the button.
  • Wave 2 when you go down the stairs and work your way towards the boat.
  • Grab the heavy gun, press the button, and just sit and hold the door where the stairs are peaking around the corner as needed.
  • After clearing wave 1 go to the boat if you have the minimum score or clear wave 2 for more points repeating the steps for wave 1.

Keep Foyer



  • Keep foyer combat master.
  • Achieve gold medal for this challenge map.
  • Obtain a minimum score of 24,500.
  • Unlocks by completing Chapter 3.
  • Beatable on Death Incarnate.

Walkthrough

When first starting out grab the items to the left and stick to the left as there will be soldiers coming from that way. After killing the soldiers hide in the little corner by the pillar.



Just stay in the corner and lean out to pick off soldiers for easy headshots.



Fill up on armor and ammo. interact with the button and go to the same spot for wave 2.



After clearing the wave 2, fill up, and the next wave (wave 3) will be triggered when you go up the stairs and then to the hall to the left or right. It won't be noticeable as there will be a short delay.



After clearing wave 3, fill up, and work your way to the top floor. What I recommend doing is grabbing the heavy gun and back up.

Back up and hold the stairs and the corners.

Either side, doesn't matter, but I prefer covering and holding the stairs on the left.



Challenge ends when you get to the end, open the hatch, and walk through it.

Cable Car Platform



  • Cable car platform combat master.
  • Achieve gold medal for this challenge map.
  • Obtain a minimum score of 26,600.
  • Unlocks by completing Chapter.
  • Beatable on Death Incarnate.

Walkthrough

When first starting out, look for this ladder and walk way, remember how to get back to it, but don't go up it for now.



Work your way around to the stairs and grab some armor.

Go up the stairs and there will a soldier that you can take out easily.



When you get to the top there will be a soldier and a supersoldier, let the supersoldier pass and take out the lone soldier.



Stick to the right and you will come across a lone commander, take him out.



Keep going and stick to the right and you will eventually find a shotgun and some ammo.



Work your way back to where you took out the first soldier.

Use the structures for cover or back up into the door way. to take out the super soldier, use the bombenschuss to take out the supersoldier quickly.



When the supersoldier is taken out, go to the beginning by the ladder and climb up the ladder.



Continue walking to the end and stay on top. Take your time getting headshots, the soldiers won't shoot at you.



If there are soldiers under the platform use a grenade by bouncing it off the walls to take multiple soldiers out at the same time for combo bonus points.



After clearing out the wave of soldiers, go to the hatch and open it, but don't jump down.

Run around gathering ammo, armor, and health packs as needed.



When ready, jump down, pull the lever, open door, and go to the same spot as the first wave.



When you reach the minimum score or cleared the room, go to the rail cart and interact with it to end the challenge.

Caves



  • Cable car platform combat master.
  • Achieve gold medal for this challenge map.
  • Obtain a minimum score of 26,600.
  • Unlocks by completing Chapter 4.
  • Beatable on Death Incarnate.

Walkthrough

Wait for the 2 soldiers to pass, take them out silently. The first one with a throwing knife to the head and the 2nd with a silenced shot.



After taking out the 2 soldiers, climb up the rock wall, silent kill the soldier, and then look to the left and take out the commander.

Use the bombenschuss to take out the heavy soldier, then run back to the wall you climbed up, jump down, and use the wall for cover, until you clear the area.



Before climbing up the next wall, fill up with ammo, armor, and health. Climb the wall and jump down on the other side.

Crouch and you should be able to take out the two soldiers quickly.

Stay to the right side and hold the corner. The soldiers should funnel to you, just watch out for the grenades.



After the soldiers are taking care of, stick to the right wall, peak around the corner to take out the heavy machine gunners.



When you get up to the top by the machine guns, there will be soldiers that come from the bottom where you entered, take them out.

Once they're taken care of, work your way to the right to outside, there will be a super soldier and a commander.

The Important Part

You may reach the platform, but do not press the button, it will end the challenge.

This seems impossible, because you haven't reached the minimum score and won't pass the mission.



What to do instead:

  • Stand on the platform, look at the door you came through. By standing on the platform it will trigger soldiers to come through the door.
  • If you killed the wave of soldiers, but don't have a high enough score, you should be able to repeat the process 2-3 times.

Paderborn Bridge



  • Paderborn bridge combat master
  • Achieve gold medal for this challenge map
  • Obtain a minimum score of 22,800.
  • Unlocks by completing Chapter 4.
  • Beatable on Death Incarnate, but need to get every headt shot possible, or can change to Uber.

Walkthrough

When first starting out, go to the right of the dumpster and take out the 2 marksman on top, should only take 2 shots, and should be able to get two head shots for a score of 1,200.

If you fail to do this, I recommend just restarting right away. Those bonus points from head shots will be crucial to passing the level.



Now just hold the wall and corner. Don't move forward, let the soldiers come to you for easy pickings.

Take your time, every head shot and bonus points will matter and determine whether you pass or not. You need to get every head shot you can.



After this area is cleared out, open the door, but do not climb up.

Now comes the toughest part of the challenge.



Before climbing up, grab every armor and ammo you can. Do not grab health packs.

After everything is max out, look around, you should be able to locate 8 health packs, memorize them, and do a practice run around.

After locating all health packs, run as fast as possible to grab all 8, go up the tower, jump down the other side, and try to clear the soldiers and drones quickly as possible.

After the soldiers are cleared, grab armor and health quickly, and rush the super soldier with a bombenschuss to take him out quickly.

After the super soldier, grab the heavy gun, grab armor and health and stick to the right. Use the barrier/post as cover against the panzerhund.

Shoot at the head to get the bonus points.



Take your time, peak the corner, and clear the final area of soldiers, go for head shots.

Challenge ends once you interact with the ladder.



Wulfburg Square



  • Wulfburg square combat master.
  • Achieve gold medal for this challenge map.
  • Obtain a minimum score of 17,600.
  • Unlocks by completing chapter 5.
  • Beatable on Death Incarnate.

Walkthrough

This one is tough, a lot needs to go right for this one to be completed. This may take 2-3 run-throughs to get it down.

What I recommend is stay on top and go to the right and stealth kill the lone soldier when the supersoldier goes back in the other direction.



Now croutch and stealth your way to the other side by the lone commander and take him out.



If done right you should be able to get 1,300 points from the commander (base 900 + knife throw stealth kill to the head 400 = 1,300).

Go to the other side of the truck, the direction you came from.



There should be a health pack sitting there. Shoot the supersoldier to knock him down, grab the health pack, attack and tear off armor, and run for the stairs immediately adn go up to the tower.



Once in the tower use the bombenschuss to knock him out and shoot him in the head/chest to weaken and kill him.

Take your time ducking in and out of the openings.

Work on the 2nd supersoldier and then the other soldiers.

Jump up in the window and peak-n-out to the left or right to quickly head shot soldiers without taking damage.



The challenge will end when you take out the commander on top, climb the wall, and go straight around the corner.



Workshop



  • Workshop combat master.
  • Achieve gold medal for this challenge map.
  • Obtain a minimum score of 17,200.
  • Unlocks by completing Chapter 6, need to save Kessler.
  • Beatable on Death Incarnate, but a lot easier on Uber.
  • I was short by 100-300 points everytime. Switched to Uber (more soldiers), passed on first run.

Walkthrough

Headshot soldiers with 1 bullet (600 points minium) + head shots on zombies (500 points = 1,100 points minimum for 2 quick kills.

These steps in the beginning are crucial and need to happen quickly.

Grab the health pack just off to the right.



Now there will be 1 zombie to the left and 2 soldiers in front of you, it should be easy points if you can covert soldiers to zombies/crawlers and get the kills quickly.



Now run up to the stairs on the right, grab the ammo, and hold the aisle.

Keep bursting shots and going for head shots, should be able to convert soldiers to zombies then kill them off for a load of points quickly.

Also don't forget about the kampfistole, if you have a lot of soldiers in one spot, use the kampfpistole to take them out quickly, and get combo bonus points.



Challenge will end when you go straight to the other side and up the stair case.

Go down the shower/bath hall and straight up the stairs. There will be 2 soldiers and a heavy to fight through.

After clearing the area, go across the bridge, jump up, and clear out the area out.



If you jump down, climb the wall to get back out.



Challenge ends when you go up the hill and open the door.
