Burn 'em Out - Call of Duty: World at War
September 15th, 1944
This is a relatively straightforward level. We are continuing the push towards the airfield on Peleliu, this time assisted with a flamethrower to burn out the Japanese soldiers from their hiding places.
The flamethrower makes this level a relative doddle
Move through the initial trenches, clearing a path with your flamethrower.
TIP: The flamethrower has surprisingly good range, so use it to kill enemies both in the trenches and above them.
The mission is to take out the three enemy mortar pits. Throw some smoke grenades to cover your path before moving out of the first area. Once round the corner, turn on the flames to cook the enemy in their trenches.
Take out all the early enemies using the flamethrower
Follow the trench north and use a combination of grenades and flames to take out the enemies in the first mortar pit. Watch out for Japanese soldiers on the side of the trenches however, as they can pick you off quickly if you don't switch to your Garand. Take it slow as you move into the open area, picking off any enemies in the way. Use the cover behind the barrels at the entrance to the pit to clear the vicinity.
For the bunker beyond the open area just run in with your flamethrower activated and you should be able to burn out all the enemies within. Head back out and in the direction of the next mortar pit with this done. Stay aware of the numerous enemies that are sure to be lining the sides of the trenches, particularly as the trench turns from earth walls to wooden supports. As you round the corner and the trench-walls become earth again, watch for snipers in the trees and Banzai attackers on the ground.
Watch for enemies in the trees as well as down low
Follow the path through, relying on your flamethrower until the trench opens out again. Clear the area (it will be something of a battle of attrition) and then either head into the bunker on the left for the Death Card, or up the slope to the right to head to the next mortar pit.
DEATH CARD: Queen of Hearts (Vampire)
- It's in the bunker to the left as the trench slopes up into an open field on the right.
Once up the slope, loose some grenades into the pit to easily take out the mortar crew and its defenders.
Move straight through the pit and out the other side once the objective has been checked off. It won't be long before you need to use a gun with good range, such as the Arisaka, to pick off the distant enemies at the trench walls. Watch also for Banzai attacks. With the ranged targets eliminated, switch back to the flamethrower and continue through the tight trenches, burning out any enemies within.
You will come to a trench with a bunker entrance on the right and an open area with camouflaged snipers at its end straight ahead. Throw a smoke grenade and clear the bunker, then emerge back in the trench and clear the area. Flame the next bunker before heading through the narrow passage which leads towards the final mortar pit.
The bunker on the left is a dead end, but still needs to be cleared. The one on the right heads towards our objective
Move into the narrow corridor, using fire to clear the initial area. Take cover behind the barrels once it opens up and pick off the enemies at the end of the room. This may take some time on higher difficulties, with attrition being the way to go.
TIP: While the flamethrower is great at close quarters, be careful not to use it next to any explosive red barrels!
Getting through the bunker
With that done, follow the slope out and into the final mortar pit, which boasts numerous enemies and a couple of Banzai runners. Clear the area and the mission is complete once your allies have regrouped.
