Sandcastle locations

Search one of the following locations to find a hidden sandcastle:

    Guadalcanal: There are two islands (a small one and a big one). On the big island is a beach facing toward Guadalcanal as well as two trees. Follow the beach to the left of those trees to find a mini sandcastle with a shovel.

    Iwo Jima: On the island closest to the carrier is a small sandcastle facing the carrier.

    Wake Island: There are two small islands by the beach base. On the one to the right is a sandcastle with a Swedish flag and a yellow shovel.

Quick reloads

Press [Reload], immediately sprint a few steps, then press [Reload] again.

Repairing planes

Land your plane on a landing pad or ship to repair them at anytime. Additionally, airplanes will be repaired when flown low enough over the airstrips or carriers. However, they must be under your control.

Repairing tanks

Tanks will self repair in the spawn huts in Guadalcanal (base and airstrip) and Iwo Jima (airstrip), but the area must be controlled by your side.

Easy repairs

Infantry can fix all vehicles with the wrench. They will also get points for repairs.

Easy healing

After getting hit by an infantry soldier’s rocket while in a tank, kill him and any nearby enemies. Get out of the tank, and take his kit to heal yourself.

Easy kills

You usually will not get points when you use a sniper rifle from within your spawn point. However, the anti-aircraft area on aircraft carriers are not treated the same way. You can remain in the gun area and get points. This is especially useful on Iwo Jima when attacking the Lighthouse or Beach.

Bombing runs

While in control of a bombing run, keep checking the mini-map to see all enemies. Any enemies standing outside the shelter will appear on there. Although you may miss bombing a few enemies grouped together at their base, it is better to kill campers outside the air raid hut.

Capturing bases

After spawning, fly a plane directly to an airfield base. Parachute out, and immediately capture the base. This allows your team to spawn at the strongest point and also unlocks the bombing run, tanks, and another plane. Although you may have lost a plane, you now have a new one and 30 more points.

Detecting attackers

All empty vehicles will appear on the map. When boats suddenly appear around the base you are defending, it will let you know when attackers are there.


Always join an open squad if not already playing with friends. This gives you the ability to spawn next to them at anytime instead of spawning at a base.
