Hints and Tips
Use these hints and tips for Heavy Weapon: Atomic Tank on the Xbox 360 video game console. Heavy Weapon: Atomic Tank is a downloadable arcade video game available on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
Level 6 - Atomic Bombs
On level six you will encounter large planes that drop small nukes. If these nukes are not destroyed by the time they hit the ground, they will kill you in the blast. Be sure to level up your laser weapon specifically for this level. When the planes come through, stay under them and attack the dropping nukes until the plane itself is destroyed.
Use this recommended weapon upgrade strategy to complete mission mode. More powerful weapons can destroy incoming ordinance better than upgraded shields can, therefor it is recommended that you upgrade shields near the end of the mission mode.

The Joint Command Reward
You'll notice in the achievements listed below that there is a Joint Command one listed, awarded for getting through a mission with a friend. However, there is no way to play the game on-line in mission mode. To get the achievement, plug a second controller in and complete a couple of missions with a friend locally, or just log a second player in there and play a couple missions alone as normal to gain the achievement.
Kill 12 Enemies at Once with a Nuke
This one can be tough when playing alone. Note: the missiles that drop in sets of 5 or 8 do not count towards this. The easiest way to get this achivement is to play on Xbox Live in a four player gain. Since there are more enemies on the screen at once, depending on the number of players, it is easier to get 12 at once.
Easy Way to Get Cannon Happy Achievement
This achievement looks really hard, since you need to complete 11 missions without using a nuke or reinforcement (reinforcements are brought in if you die). Basically, to get the achivement, start a new game and do not use nukes throughout the entirety of it. If you die, pause the game and restart the current mission. Continue until the achievement has been unlocked.
