Medals are awarded based on how well you held your ground and performed during the mission (i.e. how well you protected the objective or how quickly you defeated a boss). The highest-ranking Gold Medals are earned if no less than 80% of the primary objective's health remains by the end.
For boss levels, defeat the following within the corresponding estimated time frame:
LEVEL - TIME FRAME Africa - 135 seconds. Europe - 40 seconds. Pacific - 320 seconds.
When using tripod legs that have Quickload, press A to activate the leg special. When you need a quicker reload, press [Reload] and immediately press A again. Your ammo should be re-filled as soon as your trench is up and able to move again.
For this achievement you must complete a mission in single player without firing a single shot. That means you must use Emplacements. You'll need the best Emplacements to make this possible. Once you do, it is recommended that you attempt this on the very first mission in Europe called Beach.
