Many will complain about the MP achievements, especially leveling up to the top rank.

I, on the other hand, will complain about it having specific difficulty achievements!
I like it more when a game has no difficulty selection at all. Much like every GTA title, Red Dead Redemption, Assassin's Creed, or even LA Noir (though that would be near pointless).

I'm sure rank 50 won't take longer than 10 on GTA IV, game looks really fun too so shouldn't be too hard, otherwise a simple, fun list.

The achievements don't seem too bad imo. I just hope the multi player is better than Read dead redemption.

Looks like I won't be completing it because of that multiplayer achievement. I have limited access to get online so there's no way I'll be getting that one.

I like the variety of achievements here. Story completion, campaign skill challenges, and mulitplayer time invested unlocks. Max Payne 3 won't be an overnight 1000, it'll take several days, minimum. And probably some general trading for the "Dearest of Friends", "The Gambler", and "Max Payne Invitational" achievements as well.

new york minute in the old max paynes was just a timed version of every chapter/mission whatever you want to call it, in which the game gave you a specific time limit to complete the game and if i remember right killing people gave you slightly more time... pretty challenging gotta know the game first and be very specific in what you do, no exploring just straight to the point figure it will be more of the same if not exactly for part 3....

The SP stuff looks okay nothing too hard, except for maybe the new york minute achievement but i have doubts about Lvl 50. I just hope the MP is enjoyable enough to not feel like a long grind.

Bit of an aside (and I don't want to make a new thread about) but has anyone seen evidence of running in this game? From the single and multiplayer gameplay vids R* have put out it looks like there's only a jog available. It stuck out pretty big after legging it across the desert as John Marston.

The environments seen so far don't appear to be as expansive as Red Dead's deserts, so I think a sprint option might not be necessary.

Given R*'s history though too, Max will probably jog at the most, just the same as any GTA, Red Dead, and LA Noire.

Stack of questions upcoming!

Is Hardcore just Old School, but harder? Or is is it just the same (or easier) difficulty with a wacky parameter? (ala Dead Space 2's HXC mode = Second hardest difficult with only 3 saves)

For the purpose of collectibles; On completion of the campaign can you select any chapter to restart from or only the chapter you last saved on?

You Play, You Pay, You Bastard
How easy were melee kills to come across? Can you cripple enemies then run up and smack 'em?

Colder Than The Devil's Heart = Kill 30 enemies in 2 minutes
Did this achievement occur naturally through the campaign or is it something you'll have to go out of your way to find?

Man Of Many Weapons/Faces; How many of each are they? Are they level, stat or in-game mini mission related (Think COD's emblem unlocks) related?

The Gambler: What type of wagers are available on Multiplayer?

Past The Point Of No Return: Take 100 Painkillers
How many would you say you used throughout the campaign? Were these due to the game being legit hard, or unfamiliarity/incompetence on your part?
Is there an energy bar that tells you how far away these are from activation?

I'm enjoying the game so far. The only complaint I have is the achievements. I really think they could have done a better job in my opinion. I expecting to do multiple playthroughs. I started on medium but I went back and started with the easy mode so I can master the mechanics of the gameplay and I'll get to enjoy the story a little the first time around.

It's because you had probaby switched your targeting mode to hard or soft lock. The game clearly states before you start a new game that you can't change them in the middle in order to earn the achievement for Hard.

You'll probably only get around 6 achievements by the end of story mode. Try going for some of the miscellaneous achievements that are one specific chapters. There are 3 parts of the story and an achievement is unlocked after finishing each one. You'll probably get the first one sometime soon.

Answering my own questions here, but other might find it useful
1)Yes there is a chapter select option and also a checkpoint select option but the checkpoints are called descriptive shit like '1', '2', and '5'

2) Melees are rare to come by, I had less than 20 by the end of my first campaign playthrough. You can shoot people in the leg, then run up and clobber them when the stand back up.

3) Got this by the Panama Canal chapter (I dunno, 11?) I die several time and got downed multiple times per chapter on Medium, so this is pretty much unmissable for the novice player.

For all the 'Get X Kills while in FREE-AIM' achievements you have infinite ammo. Switch to the Micro 9mm SMG, since it's rapid fire and it seems body shots can kill when you use it too. Just Restart Checkpoint if you botch them.

You'll have to use the pistol for the Nightclub scene as it's right at the beginning of the level and you don't have a chance to pick up an SMG yet.

With Chapter 5's 'Get 7 Kills when jumping off the Rickety Boat' there's an explosive canister on the bottom of the stairs, to the top right of your screen. Shoot that before you draw anyone's attention. should take out 3 people and leave 4 grouped nicely together right in front of you.

With Chapter 7's 'So Much For Being Subtle' there's a bit of trouble with the top 3 guys.
Don't kill the guy on your extreme right first, because that will instantly end the scene, leave him for last.
Get the guy in the middle first before he goes into cover, then the dude at the end of the warehouse coming up the stairs, then finally the chap on the extreme right.

Can I unlock medium and hard achievements when I finish old school in free aim?
It is because I changed the lock in hard in my first time. So, I had not unlocked the achievement when I finished hard mode. But also old school and hardcore were opened.

NYM has no difficulty setting to switch. It has a fixed difficulty, MEDIUM. You can play it with SOFT LOCK targeting though. In other words, just beat each chapter of NYM to unlock NYMHC.

100 Kills With Melee
"This is an accumulative achievement. To melee an enemy while close press :ybut:, you can use chapter select to go back for this one."

Pressing :ybut: might start with a melee move, but it finishes with a bullet. Therefore the actual kill is with a weapon? I see this counts towards the SCRAPPER "Grind" but it does not unlock the Achievement??? I have 104/150 Melees according to my SCRAPPER Statistic, but no Achievement...

In hindsight I'd say Rockstar should have made the Lifetime Of Payne grind in MP an achievement in itself.
That's the grind where you have to play as a hunted character in Payne Killer for a total of 60 minutes. Seems like a slog, but the mode is very fun and ultimately you'll get it long before level 50.

I say this because according to the multiplayer stats on R*SC Payne Killer is tied last with the various Turf modes from Gang Wars as the least popular multiplayer mode (3%) and that's a shame.

Hi All,

Never considered asking this but reading some comments about this achievement not unlocking got me thinking.

If I choose to restart a level will it affect anything?

I started a new game on hard mode and free aim, everytime you press pause and go to gameplay settings it tells you what difficulty and aim assist you are on.

i'm only on chapter 8 and it's taken a lot to get to this point with my poor accuracy on free aim, everytime I get to a part for the achievement I have just restarted checkpoint on hard mode, I never use chapter select for the free aim achievements.

Thanks

1. It's like NORMAL difficulty.
2. You can't afford to die by any means or you have to start all over, back in Chapter I.
