    I can never get the Artillery to actually fire at anyone...

    what's the deal with it?

    Cheers.

    The unit you are attacking cant be next to it.

    In addition, you can only move or fire in a given round, you cannot do both

    To check its range, place the cursor over the unit and press the "B" button.

    Artillery only goes to the COs that behave well and eat their soup.

    Now seriously, what are you talking about? you mean in the campaign mode?

    yeah mate,

    in normal campaign mode.

    It just seems a little random as to when it can actually fire at something.

    But thanks for all the tips guys,

    especially the range tip, and the tip that it can't move and fire at the same time.

    thanks.

    also, i find this game very hard...

    maybe it's easier if you have played the first ones on the GBA?

    The first missions were very easy, yet on the mission TAG BATTLE, it gets hard.

    just hold b on the artillery to see where it can fire. you cant fire and move in the same turn.

    it doesnt get any simpler than that

    It's what makes it fun IMO [​IMG]

    Anyway, you could probably check out some FAQs on GameFAQs that tell you some general strategy. They do help a little. (Eg.: http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/ds/file/924889/48980)
