Hidden shortcut to completion[]

The German HQ is not abstract. It is actually the largest building in the very center of the map, inside the enclosed compound. Technically, the compound is inaccessable as paratroopers are absent in this level, and all entrances are blocked by indestructable barriers.

However, using artilleries such as captured Nebelwerfers or 105mm howitzers, a player may continuously blind-bombard the German HQ till it collapses. Doing so will instantly finish the mission.


  • The mission is called St. Lo Counterattack in the game files.
