I am currently in the process of completing this and as you may be aware, this game can crash, a lot! So after a bout of crashes I decided to let my Xbox rest and write this.

I had 75 kills, unless the last two crashes didn't register, then 73 before it started to crash.

Now to the guide, this is how I (will) accomplished this.
I used the UEF with the following options.
Settings:- Normal AI
Map - Open Palms
Unit cap - 250
F.O.W - None
V.C - Assassination
Pre-base - On
No Rush Option - Off
Game Speed - As Preferred
Civilians - None
Spawn - Fixed

Your aim is to build an experimental unit of the faction you choose, in my case this was the mobile factory. (the following will read as though new to the game)

*Note game crashes a lot so save often

First build 10 engineers from the land factory and have the first two acquiring a few mass points around your base. The rest should be assisting the land factory in building

Once these are done upgrade the land factory to tech two and build between 10 and 15 heavy tanks, this will become clear later, now upgrade the land factory to tech three, by this point your other two engineers should be done building the mass extractors and you should use these to assist the land factory. Uses your ACU to defend the base from any engineers attempting to claim you extractors and any ground scout units, as this is normal (easy) AI there shouldn't be many, if any.

Once your land factory is at tech three build 20 engineers. Once complete have them assist ACU as you will now upgrade your ACU to tech three also. Whilst this is happening have your original tech one engineers assist your extractors while you upgrade them to tech three also. At this stage however you need to be aware of your opponent and how much they have expanded, if it is too much you may want to trim there extractors and limit them to within the mountain range with the tanks you built earlier.

Once everything is at tech three use your ACU to build a mass fabricator and power generator near all mass points, no need to worry about the tech three engineers as they will continue to assist your ACU until you say otherwise. While your ACU and engineers are building the fabricators and power generators have your original tech one engineers build mass storage around the fabricators and energy storage around the power generators.

Once complete you should have a considerable amount of income, have your tech one engineers assist your ACU and build the experimental unit (mine was the mobile land factory). Once your E.U (experimental Unit) is built SAVE!!!. Advance it towards the enemy base. This is where you have to time it well to save again as once the enemy ACU is killed the game will end, press A, a couple of times and you will then be sent back to the title screen. Just reload the save and your E.U should already be on the move towards the enemy base, so as stated before if you time it well you will be killing the enemy within seconds. I have/had it to about 1 minute per kill, that includes reloading times.

*Note - this is just how I did it so there is probably room for improvement also the amount of mass extractors is up to you, but this is going to take a while and you don't need them all, I claimed the three at the back of the base and the two at the side of the mountain range.

*Note - I cannot stress enough the importance of saving as this game can be very glitchy and crash a lot.

*Note - This is a rough outline of how to get this written from memory, the overall aim is to get the E.U and have it attack the enemy ACU as quick as possible.

This is my second attempt at writing a guide, so any negative feed back i would appreciate it if you please explain your reasoning and I will rectify next time.
