To get this achievement, you must fully upgrade all four types of units in each campaign of the game.

Each race doesn't have to be fully upgraded in the same level, but you do have to upgrade all of them at least once per campaign.

While killing enemies, you earn points. Once you have 2000 points you are allowed to upgrade a unit (via the Y button). At 3000 points, you can upgrade that unit again, which makes it a level three, or fully upgraded unit.

To fully upgrade all units in one campaign, you'll need 20,000 points, which can easily be earned especially on Casual difficulty. Just take it one unit at a time. Start with your best/most used unit and once it's fully upgraded go to the next.

Say you only manage to upgrade one unit on the first level of a campaign. You don't have to do this again to get the achievement. On the next level, simply upgrade the other three units fully and it'll count.

In theory, you could spend one level per campaign just upgrading one unit, and with 5 levels per campaign, you'll easily have enough points and time to do so.

If you don't have this achievement at the end of the game, just go back to a previous level from each of the campaigns and focus only on upgrading your units (which primarily means killing instead of capturing control points).

The best way to ensure you will kill all the enemies without having to stick to one control point, capture just over half of the control points in a level (3 control points if there are 5 total, and 2 if there are 3 total). This way you have plenty of room in case you lose a control point, and you'll know exactly where the enemies are coming from.

Just do this for all three campaigns, and you should have this in no time.
