This is a guide for obtaining this solo (offline with bots). It's a bit luck based, but certainly possible - it took me 4 tries.

- From the main menu, go to Swarm > Offline > Select Medium Difficulty, and for your map choose Whiteout. Start the game, then go to your loadouts. You can play around a bit if you want, but here is what I recommend (some of this stuff will need to be unlocked):

Sniper Rifle - Frag Rounds
Assault Rifle - Automaton Mod
Riot Mortar
Repair Tool
Standard Armor
+2 Tungsten Coating, +2 Gyro Stabilizer, +4 Composite Plating, +2 Repair Field

- Start the game, drop down and hack the control point. Now look north, facing away from the base, and you should see a set of crates on the ground (2 big, 1 small). This is going to be your own personal defense spot. Go behind them. The general idea is you can hide behind them, peek out around both sides to watch the left and right flanks, as well as crouch in the middle to see enemies going through your base.

- Use your sniper and start taking out enemies as the come, the use your riot mortar to on groups (try to aim where they're moving too, not where they are unless they're obviously sitting still). As soon as you have $20, place a supply depot right behind the crates with you - make sure it's close enough that it will be resupplying you when you're hiding behind them.

- Keep fighting as normal, your AI teammates aren't amazing but they should be decent enough that you'll survive. Watch out for enemies come over the hills on the left and right, and enemies going on top of your base.

- When you get $100, you can buy a mech. While it presents a bigger target, the extra firepower and protection is helpful. The biggest thing you need to know about it is GET OUT if it's taking too much damage, because A) you'll drop out with full personal health and B) you can repair it with your repair tool. You can also stand near supply depots (or jump out of it, leaving it beside one) and it will be automatically repaired.

- When you get more cash, make sure to jump out and put down rocket turrets (they cost $40). You only get 2, so place one on either side. Make sure to put them far enough out that they'll shoot at targets on the hills - while putting them behind cover will keep the turrets safe, it won't keep you safe.

- Other tips:
- When enemy mechs show up, don't let them get to close to you - they can pull off the instant kill fatality just like you can. You can try to risk pulling it off yourself, but it's safer to move away from them, shooting and letting the turrets help you out.
- You can also repair friendly buildings - and even your teammates using your repair tool. Make sure to do so in the small downtimes between waves.
- Don't focus too much on the DCMs, most of them aren't worth the trouble. The only one worth noting is the VIP mission, because if you succeed the VIP stays and acts as an extra bot to help you out (he fights and can defuse the control point too). He has more health and shields, but also doesn't regenerate as quickly, so make sure to use your repair tool on him.

As mentioned, it's a bit luck based but very possible. Practice and you'll eventually get better at the little details. Good luck! :)
