Orders are commands that improve the effectiveness of your troops and offer unique actions that can help secure your victory on the battlefield. Typically the effects will only last for a single turn. Enemy commanders on some levels can also use their own orders.

In Valkyria Chronicles, the Aged Gentleman teaches you orders. You also learn orders by leveling up the various classes. Orders in this game are extremely powerful, with the high-end Orders often effectively giving the player the ability to assign a positive Potential to one or more soldiers at will.

In Valkyria Chronicles 2, Alicia and Welkin both teach you orders. You also learn orders by leveling up the various classes. Orders are generally a lot more "expensive" in terms of Command Point usage than in the first game.

In Valkyria Chronicles 3, orders are learned from the Training Grounds using exp. You can also learn orders from leveling up stats.

In Valkyria Chronicles 4, orders are framed as ideas put forward by Claude Wallace and his comrades while they are together in the Mess Hall, with others gained by levelling up classes. The unlock progression and cost of using orders is more in line with the first game, and the order list is fairly similar, notably absent a few infamously overpowered entries (Caution, Awaken Potential and Awaken All being the most obvious).

Enemy Orders

Three enemy-exclusive orders were introduced in Valkyria Chronicles 2 which remained in Valkyria Chronicles 3 and some even made their way into Valkyria Chronicles 4:

  • Recall: Revives all fallen allies' units (excluding destroyed armor). Used by Baldren and Artificial Valkyria Baldren (VC2); Lydia (VC3); and Klaus Walz (VC4).
  • Eloquence: Reduces enemy team's morale. Used by Artificial Valkyria Baldren (VC2) and Lydia (VC3).
  • Forced Charge: Increases unit's AP. Used by Juliana (VC2) and Zig (VC3).

Trivia

  • Demolition Boost is extremely broken: what it was probably envisioned to do was give a small but welcome boost to the firepower of a Lancer. Because the +100 vsArmor bonus is applied to every shot a weapon fires, what it actually does is allow Shocktrooper machine guns and other high-capacity automatic weapons like the Shamrock's "Gatling gun" turret to deal more vsArmor damage than endgame-level Lances and fully upgraded tank guns.
  • The effects of Recall can be prevented by walking over enemy corpses to remove them from play.
  • "All units..." Orders in VC4 prevent the use of their companion single-unit order, and either by accident or design do not apply their effect to tanks, even if the regular Order can be given to a tank.
