  1. Walk to the right edge of the pumpkin that you start on and fire a ninja rope just below the oil drum. Retract the rope and try to bounce the rope off of the floor until you gain enough speed to move yourself over the oil drum so you can collect the crate containing the Baseball Bat. Walk behind the artillery worm next to you and aim your baseball bat horizontally and fire. The worm will fall into the three mines below, opening a hole down to the vital crate.
  2. Walk to the crate and collect it.

Mission 2 - Operation Market Garden

Operation Market Garden

Use girders to get your worms into positions where they can shoot straight at the enemy, then just go for it.

Note: the name of this mission is the name of a military operation during the Second World War (see References to other media).

Mission 3 - All Quiet in the Library

All Quiet in the Library

Chances are you're going to be nuked in this level - you're unlikely to finish it before then. However, that in itself shouldn't be a problem. As suggested, try to get your worms away from the edge before the earthquake (which comes one go after the nuke). If you can (and you don't think the enemy will grab them), leave a health crate or two lying around so you can heal yourself after the nuke strikes.

So long as you're not stupid (ie don't leave worms right near the edge of the landscape, or clustered together), this level should be reasonably easy.

  1. Use a Jet Pack to collect the two right-most weapon crates, which contain a Longbow and a Dynamite. Fly back to the polar bear and drop the dynamite to open a hole to reach the enemy.
  2. Use a Parachute to glide down to the enemy (or your second Jet Pack if you still have it), and use the Longbow to knock the enemy into the water.

  1. Climb up to the tree and firepunch the enemy into the water.
  2. Blowtorch through the tree, and collect the crate (it contains a girder).
  3. Place the girder so that you can use it as a ladder to climb to the top of the train.
  4. Trigger the mine then quickly jump away to avoid harm. The climb down the other side of the train, using the bungee where necessary, and collect the utility crate (it contains a jetpack). Use it to collect the weapons crate on the far right of the map.

This one's pretty easy, really... just get to the top of the pyramid with one of your worms fairly early on, and keep plugging away... Don't forget that you have worm select on this round - it can make all the difference! (For instance, the first go is best taken with the worm on the right, on the tree.)

  1. Attach the ninja rope to the very edge of the mushroom, and swing your worm over on top of the mushroom. This may take a bit of practice. If you are struggling, you can build up extra speed by retracting the rope by holding up. Collect the crate, and use the Girder Starter Pack to build a walkway over the minefield. Stay on the first mushroom, so that Sentry can't shoot you.
  2. Use the walkway to collect the crate just to the right of the minefield, then teleport to the flashing crate on the far right.

Mission 8 - Big Shot

Big Shot

Note: The briefing text indicates that the mission involves one Worm with an unlimited supply of shotgun bullets is incorrect. The actual ordnance for the mission is:

3× Handgun, 2× Uzi, 2× Longbow, 3× Girder, Unlimited Blowtorch.[1]

Firstly, ignore the briefing - you don't have an unlimited supply of shotgun ammo. In fact, you don't have a shotgun at all. You do have an infinite blowtorch, however.

There are no hard-and-fast rules for doing this one - you have to play it by ear. However, here are a few guidelines:

  • On your first go, you can set off the nearby mine with the ninja rope without doing yourself any damage. This should hurt Guard a little. Similarly, you can clear the mine on the far left, as the ninja rope has infinite repeat swings.
  • Although the enemy can select which worm they use, they can only select amongst one team - this sometimes means you can stand right by one worm, knowing that it can't take the next turn.
  • Cannon Fodder (the team with the worms called Sentry) has the first enemy go.
  • If a team can't attack you, it may well have a go at the other team. They can do a fair bit of damage to each other while you're busy collecting the crates on the far left.
  • Blowtorches can do reasonable damage - I did 45 damage in one turn in this level.
  • You have some girders - use them!
  • An old woman launched from the top of the highest leaf can easily kill the worm on the mushroom.
  • Sudden death can be a pain in the neck or a blessing... just bear it in mind as it comes quite quickly.

Mission 9 - Water Surprise

Click here for a YouTube tutorial.
  1. Stand on your other worm's head and fire the first arrow to the right, horizontally. Fire your second arrow at the highest mine. The best way to ensure a hit is to use the greatest possible firing angle and adjust the position of your worm until you get it right. The mine will bounce off and land at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower. You will need to retreat to the right a little bit to avoid triggering the mine.
  2. Without moving your worm, fire an arrow upwards with the maximum angle. Use your second arrow to shoot the remaining mine. The best way to ensure hitting it is to position your worm at the bottom of the pyramid's slope, and fire an arrow up with maximum angle. The mine will hit you, but this is unavoidable.
  3. Move to the bottom of the pyramid's slope and fire both arrows upwards with maximum angle.
  4. Climb the tower using backflips, then place a long girder so that you can reach the crate.
  5. Collect the crate and use the aquasheep to kill General. The aquasheep can be flown underwater.

An alternate strategy which is self explanatory:

Mission 10 - Jurassic Worm

  1. Use your Ninja rope to collect the crate containing Mole Bombs on top of the dinosaur's head. Release a mole bomb to the right, and make it start digging when it walks over the first mine.
  2. Use another Ninja rope to get your next worm on top of the dinosaur, and set off the first mine. This should knock another mine down the hole and into the enemy worm. If it gets stuck inside the tunnel, you can use an Uzi to knock it down the tunnel, or otherwise use your remaining worms to kill the opponent worm.

Mission 11 - Chemical Warfare

Chemical Warfare

This level is fairly straightforward when you get the hang of it. You should poison all the worms you can't reach (as the landscape's indestructible) as soon as you have the skunk. (Until then, use any infinite weapons you have such as the firepunch and uzi to do damage. The worm in the bottom right corner is ripe for a kicking as soon as possible.)

When the poisoned worms have lost all but one point of energy each, start using the shotgun on them carefully. Following these rules, you should have no problems, although it's worth getting under cover, as the enemy will be using plenty of airstrikes.

  1. Use a Worm Select to select your second worm and place a girder to get on to the central green platform. It is best to end the turn under cover so you do not get shot.
  2. Backflip onto the silver mechanical arm above you and walk towards the mine, then girder over it so you can collect the weapons crate.
  3. Bazooka the worm on the blue wire above you to knock him down from his high spot.
  4. Ninja rope up to the blue wire, stand in a safe location and then place a girder directly above the leftmost worm so that he cannot attack you directly.
  5. Use your blowtorch to dig upwards as close to the roof as possible.
  6. Skip your remaining turns and the enemy worms will all drown. If a worm teleports up to your safe haven, use the minigun or longbow to knock him away.

Mission 14 - Super Sheep to the Rescue!

Super Sheep to the Rescue!

Easier said than done. This mission really relies on Super Sheep skills.

You have to collect the crate at the opposite of the map using a Super Sheep. The crate contains a Fire Punch, which has to be used in order to kill the enemy.

Not going for gold will give you closer and thus easier crates to collect.

300 HP worms may sound hard to kill at first, but they're actually easy to sink:

  1. First, focus on piling the two worms at the bottom the map. Use a shotgun for that: the first shot has to push the worm on the red wire onto the mine, which will then push him next to his teammate. The second shot will then push both worms onto another mine next to a utility crate. If everything is done correctly, drowning them should be easy.
  2. Then, on the second turn, kill these worms using either a Dynamite or a Holy Hand Grenade.
  3. Finally, use your Ninja Rope to go near the remaining enemy and drop a Dynamite or a Holy Hand Grenade (depending on what you've used on the previous turn) on the right of that enemy's head.

It is not easy to have everything working as intended, but if there are any survivors, just kill them afterwards (except the General, which you should kill as soon as possible because he plays very often).

  1. First go, hide in the E (in the small tunnel between the two top bars, in order to reach it: go below Assassin, walk backwards until the worm blocks you and jump) and kill the worms on the M using a Napalm Strike.
  2. Then, kill the Assassin using a Longbow; this may kill the previous attack's survivor(s), if there are any. Use your second shot to push the Field Soldier so it is closer to the barrel. Retreat in a way the General will have to get close to the A - you'll need that A as a wall for the Minigun to work.
  3. Go down and kill the General using a Minigun. Retreat left in the E as far as possible. (Don't climb on the A like I did in the replay, as this messes up the leftmost pile.)
  4. Kill the rightmost worm (Field Soldier) using a Homing Missile.
  5. Kill the two leftmost worms using a Banana Bomb: in order to do that, use the Ninja Rope so you can go to a place where you think you can fire the Banana easily.

The following walkthrough is absolutely fool proof but also boring to perform.

  1. Collect the two crates closest to you, which contain 2 ninja ropes and 2 blowtroches. Use a single ninja rope to collect the leftmost crate, ignoring all other crates along the way. This crate contains a Pnumatic drill, which you can use this turn to collect the flashing crate.
  2. Fire your second ninja rope straight up to escape this pit, and then use it to get on to the red tentacle above. Fire an uzi to knock the two top-most enemy worms off of the red and green tentacles.
  3. Jump onto the brown stalagtite and blowtorch up towards the roof of the map.
  4. Launch the Nuclear Test for fun.
  5. Go and make lunch because you will now win the map with no further keyboard input. Sudden death will eventually trigger and the all enemy worms will eventually drown.

Mission 22 - Go Bananas

You don't have many turns to collect the crate; an Earthquake occurs a few turns after the mission starts.

First, ignore your first two worms and just play with the third one: don't forget to select it at the beginning of each turn. Then, well, focus on digging a way to the crate:

  1. Fire a Bazooka on the Sentry so you can walk to the next fruit; don't forget to fall down right after firing, during your retreat time.
  2. Then, open the way to the first banana by throwing a Grenade behind the Guard.
  3. Walk to the banana and use Blow Torch to dig through it; aim it upwards. Do not walk back to the beginning of your tunnel during the retreat time, otherwise CPU won't help you finishing digging.
  4. Remove the remaining tiny wall using a Bazooka. You're done with the digging job.
  5. Finally, walk to the right until the crate, paying attention to mines. Fall down with a bungee or a parachute in order to collect it.

Boring but easy. Just rope to the rightmost enemy, and then every turn until Sudden Death wait without doing anything. Warning however, when it's going to be the worm you're close to's turn, you have to freeze on the last second of the turn, so don't be in a continuous awayness! Turn order for CPU worms is Left -> Right.

On Sudden Death, you don't have to wait anymore, just to skip until it's guaranteed that all the 3 other worms will die within the next two turns. Once it's the case, just kill the enemy you're close to using a Blowtorch.

  • The first worm digs to the left, using 3 Blow Torches and 1 or 2 Shotguns.
  • The second worm digs to the weapon crate (which contains a girder), using 4 Blow Torches. In order to achieve that, you'll have to keep digging downwards, digging three times in total to the left and once to the right.

The second worm must have collected the crate after it finished using its 4th Blow Torch; otherwise, the mission has to be restarted. The first worm has to place a girder as far on the left as possible on its 5th turn, i.e. right after the "Almost here!" message appeared. If necessary, this worm will finish digging to the crate and then collect it on its 6th turn.
