    This is an expansion to "DarkVVind"'s solution

    To expand on 2-1, the fastest I've done that level is 3:10 with a jet w/ pesticide for roughly 20k on inferno. Here's a summary. (It seems long and wordy, but once you try it a few times, it is easy.)

    1. Go the right of where the tank will spawn. Wait for ants to spawn (Ops ends a sentence with "inbound"), then target the top gray trim of a brown building (right next to the white building on the corner.) That should take them all out.
    2. Aim up/right for the carrier, shoot, and both should go down.
    3. Jet toward lander, activate, activate.
    4. Jet toward the next objective. Once you hit the river/ravine, turn around and snipe the the Hector.
    5. Jet toward objective, ignoring everything in the way (they will hide once you get there).
    6. Jump up on the "ledge"/ raised area behind the objective/crew. Turn around and look at the building that the ants are on. Snipe the top portion of building and that should get them all.
    7. More will spawn behind that building you just blew up. Blow all of them up too.
    8. Start jetting to the left, and once they are all gone, a mass will appear on the right. Zap them (either shoot an ant, or the white building on the left of the ants).
    9. Then spiders should be popping up around you, go up the street at the gas station, toward the ravine.
    10. Turn around, shoot a building to kill a wave a spiders.
    11. There is another wave of spiders, take care of them.
    12. A mess of spiders and a bomber-spider spawn. Snipe the wave on the left first while they are together, then get the bomber-spider.
    13. Snipe the last spider wave.

    Notes:
    -AI is useless, so don't need them.
    -My secondary weapon was the skillet just in case there was a straggler.
    -It takes a while to figure out the blast radius; be patient.
    -This is also good if you want to boost a secondary profile. They can live or die, and they are guaranteed 9720 xp. (In fact, I boosted 3 classes to level 7 while earning my money.)

    It took me nine days of fairly heavy grinding to get this final achievement after already being at 49/50 achvs on this game.

    After doing everything else in the game you'll still need roughly 5 million credits to buy every gun for all four armours. An average level will give you 25k for roughly ten minutes so you're looking at 200 runs.

    My method was to pick a level I felt comfortable beating. Either 1-2 or 3-2 (with AI, they need healing all the way through the level but are useful at the end of each of those levels) were my choices as they have little in the way of air attackers. I always picked my Tier 8 battle armour and gave him the Pesticide Mortar and a homing rocket weapon.

    My best piece of advice isn't that though. This achievement takes ages so to stop yourself going mad, break it down into sub-tasks. I started by clearing all the 250,000CR weapons first. Once that was done, I felt like I'd really dented the achievement.

    Then do the 175,000s. Once I'd cleared the 97,500s I knew I had broken the back of this achievement. Carry on taking out everything in that fashion until the 37,500s are done. Then I just cleared out the remaining weapons of each type in each class.

    It doesn't make it go any quicker but it does give you a structure to follow.

    If you don't want to rubber band grind this, the best place I have found for points per minute is 2-1.

    I have been able to use my trooper with pesticide and finish the level in around 7 minutes for about 20k points.

    Still working towards this I have found that 2-4 "Hectored" is also very good points per minute.

    With the Jet and Pesticide I could get 14k in about 4 minutes.

    High Roller & Daddy WarBugs Achievement Solution

    Thanks to DarkVVind for filling out tier 6 and 7 for both Tactical and Trooper class's weaponry.

    The amount of credits you earn is tied directly to your score (similar with experience). So, if you finish a level with a score of 21,000, you will also be 21K credits richer. There is a score cap of 65,500.

    Cost for all purchasable weapons: 8,102,300
    Battle: 2,063,100
    Jet: 2,010,100
    Tactical: 2,064,100
    Trooper: 1,875,000

    Trooper, being almost 200K cheaper than the other weapon sets, makes for a slightly quicker High Roller achievement get.

    Here's a very easy method that I used to get this achievement.
    1. Turn the bots off and put the difficulty on inferno.
    2. Pick stage 2-5 the cube. I chose the cube because there's no dropships, hector mk2's or aerial enemies making it easy to blow through rather quickly.
    3. Pick your battle class and equip it with the pesticide mortar, it doesn't matter what your other weapon is cause you won't be using it all that much.
    4. Just kill all the enemies using the pesticide mortar and don't forget to use your battle classes shield to stop the blast radius from killing you.
    5. By the end of 2-5 I ended up getting 32k for about 10 minutes work and usually only died when I didn't run from enemies while waiting for my mortar to reload.
    6. Rinse and repeat the above steps till you get the points needed to buy all the weapons you have left up.

    Oh and I used PeaceSquid's method for buying up the weapons but you buy them in whatever order you feel is best for you

    If you feel this deserves a thumbs down then please leave a comment telling me why.

    I didn't see anyone else post an idle boosting guide, so I thought I'd share mine.

    Start the first level on Inferno difficulty with no bots. You will want to use the Jet class, and have the Goatstrike equipped. You can use other classes/weapons, they just need to be powerful homing weapons. I haven't tried the homing Shotguns, but I'm sure some of them work very well.

    Now, play until you reach the second anthill. This is the spot you will want to farm. What I did is I would go back to the beginning of the level, but still be able to see about where the anthill is. You just want to make sure your missiles are reaching them.

    Now slap that rubber band on your trigger, sit the controller down, and watch it go to work! The score caps at around 65,000, so check back in about an hour to finish the level. Make sure you don't die to the hector! You will lose your points if you do.

    It's a slow method, but you can do it without having to grind out the game, and if you're on the last achievement like me, you're probably getting pretty burnt out on it -_-
Do you have a question about this achievement? Please post it in the Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon Forum
