Welcome to the walkthrough for Modern Combat 5: Blackout! This is a free to play game released by Gameloft for PC and smartphones, and is one of the more popular games of this type. Please remember that due to constant updates, information contained in this guide is very likely to change. The game has seen some massive overhauls since its inception, and I will do my best to keep this walkthrough current.
This game does sync between Windows Phone and Windows 8, and I will describe the process here. After finishing it on one platform, load up the other. Play through the tutorial mission again, and at the end you'll see an option to select which account you want to use; a newly created SOLDIER_#### account or the one with your gamertag tied to it. Use the one with your tag and within a few moments every achievement (minus completing 5 campaign missions) will unlock. Please note that people have reported problems syncing from Windows Phone - Windows 8, with an achievement simply not unlocking for them. The game is much easier to play on Windows 8 (since you have a larger screen and controller support) so I recommend doing it there first.
NOTE: After Update 18, the Windows Phone version will no longer be supported. This likely means all achievements will become unobtainable and the sync between Windows Phone and Windows 8 will no longer unlock achievements.
As a word of caution; this game is a very long completion or a very expensive completion. "Free to play" typically means "pay to win", and this game is no exception. The developers have events and bundles that may make things a little cheaper or shorter, but those are few and far between. My completion cost me around $150, and that's after spending a lot of time playing. Doing the game without paying not only takes a lot of skill and dedication, but a number of years as well. You have been forewarned!
