The backstory of Lieutenant First Class Wade Jackson is certainly an interesting one. The former US pilot eventually landed on Task Force One where his actions often turn the tide when backs are against the wall. The Battle of Midway was where Jackson showed his piloting prowess, assisting in the war against the Japanese in the Pacific.
The Battle of Midway is the fourth mission in Call of Duty Vanguard's campaign and focuses on the aerial battles that frequently took place over the Pacific during the war. In this guide, find a detailed walkthrough as well as some tips on how to complete the mission on Veteran difficulty.
Prepare For Takeoff
After being briefed on the task at hand, you follow co-pilot Mateo to the top deck of the aircraft carrier before jumping into the cockpit and performing some pre-flight checks. Follow the on-screen commands to test the numerous features of the plane before flying into the action.
While flying in formation a group of Japanese fighter planes will ambush you, forcing an early engagement. After shooting down a couple of planes, the command to start the first dive-bomb will come over the radio. Point the plane downwards, zoom in, and drop the bombs at the right time for maximum impact.
Just as you're preparing for the second dive-bomb, the Japanese launch a ruthless counter-attack that leaves you and the squadron heavily outnumbered. Withstand the attack for a set period of time and command will radio in confirming that the second dive-bomb will be going ahead.
After reaching the perfect altitude, angle the plane downwards to begin the next dive-bomb to destroy the second aircraft carrier.
Tip: You'll come under heavy fire so attempt to dodge the anti-aircraft guns with some agile piloting.
Once Mateo has guided you in range, drop the bomb and watch the carrier go up in smoke.
