Introduction:
Brink is a unique shooter. It is a hybrid of Team fortress 2 and Shadowrun as well as having the free running aspect from Mirror's Edge. The free running is not as prevalent as one would have assumed but it is there in all degrees. What I mean by "all degrees" is that a Heavy can still vault over walls while a Light can wallhop and climb like no other with the Medium falling somewhere in between. The game's unlock system may not seem so in depth at first. You only get 20 credits per character by the time you reach max rank but you must distribute it thoughtfully. Do you make a well rounded character which can switch classes on the fly and get the job done? Do you specialize fully within one class or divide it among 2 classes? Do you play as a heavy or a light? You can switch weapons mid game but you cannot switch characters so you must have a well developed set of characters playing towards your strengths(or weaknesses) and what your role among your friends will be. The limitation set through the credit cap adds a lot of depth to the character and class setup.

Boosting:
All the achievements in this game can be completed offline playing against bots. All the miscellaneous achievements can be boosted for in a Private game either alone with no opposition or with/against friends. Go to Free Play and set up a Private Match. Change the match options so that the maximum number of players is 0. The game will start and you will have no opposition. This trick is useful to get the achievements "You shall not pass!" and "They never knew what hit them". If you allow your friends to join then you can boost for the other achievements.

New Character Trick:
It seems that the game gets more difficult the higher your level despite the difficulty setting. If you have trouble getting the challenge achievements then it is advised you make a new character as the difficulty is much lower and you do not unlock any more attachments by completing the 3 star challenges. If you are having trouble completing the campaign on hard mode, making a new character and rushing through the campaign will help.

What-If missions) in either Online Versus, or in Hard mode

This is one of the hardest achievements. You must do this from the campaign lobby and either complete it solo or in a versus match. The AI on Hard mode is very unforgiving on the opposing team and your teammates don't really help all that much. If you plan on doing this achievement on Hard mode then I advise you to avoid playing as a Light Weight as you cannot take as many hits due to your size and will still have to single handily complete all the objectives. It seems that the enemy AI becomes more aggressive the higher your level so you may want to start out fresh and rush through the campaign. Make sure it is solo and that you don't get an online bonus for match completion because if the match is not populated with players it will not count.

There are challenges that you can complete to unlock weapon attachments. These challenges range from parkour to completing objectives by yourself against opposition. Most of the challenges are difficult and feature bots on Hard mode on the 3 star level. Just complete the 1 star level of any challenge for the achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1095/5-nD-h0=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/brink/achievement/52824-Very-well-done-indeed-.html)Very well done indeed!

There are challenges that you can complete to unlock weapon attachments. These challenges range from parkour to completing objectives by yourself against opposition. Most of the challenges are difficult and feature bots on Hard mode on the 3 star level. Just complete the 3 star level of any challenge for the achievement.

If you have trouble completing a 3 Star challenge just take a look at the best completion time for the Parkour Challenge and copy the path/maneuvers.

There are challenges that you can complete to unlock weapon attachments. These challenges range from parkour to completing objectives by yourself against opposition. Most of the challenges are difficult and feature bots on Hard mode on the 3 star level. Just complete the 1 star level of all the challenges for the achievement.

This is one of the most difficult achievement in the game. This must be done SOLO. If you are having a hard time come back once you have more abilities and better attachments as they carry over. However it seems that the AI becomes more aggressive the higher your level so be aware of the repercussions. If you do not care about having all the challenges completed on one character then you can make a new one as the difficulty would be extremely low; this makes the achievement much easier. If you need more help check out this thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=309704).

This will be one of your very first achievements. Command posts are computer stations strategically placed around the map. Capturing the command post will yield some sort of benefit to your team, either an extra health or supply pip as well as allowing you to changes classes or weapons. Press X to interact with the command post to capture it. If a teammate is capturing with you then it will be faster.

This is one of the hardest achievements but is extremely easily boosted. Start up a private match and don’t allow bots or opposing players to join. Now complete the match on offense as quickly as you can. The time limit in question is the total time limit which is 30 minutes for any given mission. Complete all the objectives within 10 minutes and the achievement is yours.

This will be your first achievement. When you get knocked down or incapacitated wait for a medic to revive you instead of respawning. Once the medic gives you a syringe, click and hold the LS to revive yourself.

Like in Team Fortress 2, when an operative is disguised he will try to “blend in” this his actions will be suspicious. The disguised operative must take a name to be displayed over their heads and it will be of you or one of your teammates. If you see a player not shooting or has the same name as you or a friend then it is a spy. Simply shoot at the player and the disguise will wear off.

You must purchase this universal ability which is rank 1 and costs 1 credit. Throw your grenade at an enemy and spray with your gun with the hopes of hitting it. If you have good aim this will be easier. You can shoot the grenade on the ground before it detonates if you have trouble shooting it in the air.

Boosting:
All the achievements in this game can be completed offline playing against bots. Alternatively, all the achievements can be boosted for in a Private game either alone with no opposition or with/against friends. Go to Free Play and set up a Private Match. Change the match options so that the maximum number of players is 0. The game will start and you will have no opposition. This trick is useful to get the achievements "You shall not pass!" and "They never knew what hit them". If you allow your friends to join then you can boost for any miscellaneous achievement.

You should probably change the wording of that section because you say that all the achievements can be boosted in a private game with no bots...

well pretty much you get 1 to 2 audio logs every mission you do after a certain level . . .maybe 5 or 10 after that you can still get audio logs from private matchs and public games too but its usually one at a time. .
they are not specific to levels just keep playing. .. .
itll pop like every other chieve . . . when you earned it.

I've noticed that when I play solo I get 1 audio log at a time, but when playing with friends on new and already played maps I was getting 2 each map. So maybe you need to play each mission solo AND in co-op. or as haven said just keep playing if they are random. either way the game is enjoyable so it shouldn't be too bad if they are random

Yeah, i just found out that every category of audio logs, represents every Campaign (excluding the What-If's). In the first category i need 4 audio logs. I started up the first campaign with 0 bots, won the campaign and i got one audio log. I guess i need to replay that campaign 3 more times to get every audio log i need in that category.

Same goes for other 9 or so logs, that i'm missing.

I'd say it's a poor move by the developers to stretch out the gameplay...

I added this to the roadmap:
New Character Trick:
It seems that the game gets more difficult the higher your level despite the difficulty setting. If you have trouble getting the challenge achievements then it is advised you make a new character as the difficulty is much lower and you do not unlock any more attachments by completing the 3 star challenges. If you are having trouble completing the campaign on hard mode, making a new character and rushing through the campaign will help.

I agree with this. When I started this game i played the security campaign 1st n it was sooo easy. When i started the resistance campaign at lvl 12 i struggled in every single mission. Literally. The enemy A.I. was brutal. I started playing the challenges at lvl 15 n i couldn't complete any 2 star challenges. I created a new character n started the challenges on easy n i completed BMO & TD on the 1st try. I had to replay the 3 star ED twice but it was overall way more easier than when i played it with my lvl 15 guy.

I can't vouch for everyone, but the New Character trick is not helping me in the slightest for campaign (I haven't tried it for challenges yet). I'm stuck on Resistance mission two, when you have to escort the pilot. There's a choke point you have to take him through, and with the enemy team outnumbering, out-damaging and generally out-performing my idiot squad, it seems nigh impossible.

I haven't had time to scrutinize the entire guide yet, but I did notice something you have wrong. For Not so sneaky now, are you? you can't just shoot them, shooting them does not break the disguise and will not earn you the achievement. I can't speak for actually killing them outright, but I assume you need to use the Operative's "Homing Beacon" ability to reveal the enemy Operative.

Achievement description: "Reveal an enemy in disguise"
Ability Description: "Homing Beacon also lets you reveal enemy operatives in disguise."

That's my two cents anyway, but I haven't done it yet. I just know there's more to it than simply shooting them.

You can get tough as nails without playing in a full lobby. I went to campaign and selected everyone and versus match and I got the achievement and so did several friends. The guide is mostly wrong at the moment.

You cannot however start a private match against bots, you have to do it from the campaign menu and put it on everyone but you could just play against the regular AI if nobody joins your match. I played through all but 2 missions without anyone ever joining my session except my friends who were on my team. Hope that clears some things up. I also PM'ed the guide maker and corrected what was wrong in the guide.

Maybe it's been answered, I didn't read the thread but didn't see it in the description. Maybe it would be good to specify for the one where you complete both campaigns if you have to complete it on the same character or not. I don't know, but I haven't finished resistance yet and I'm playing through it on a new character, so we'll see I guess.

Also wondering if for the Tough As Nails 'chievo, you can make a new character for every mission. Kind of along the lines of the other question I guess.

Like in Team Fortress 2, when an operative is disguised he will try to “blend in” this his actions will be suspicious. The disguised operative must take a name to be displayed over their heads and it will be of you or one of your teammates. If you see a player not shooting or has the same name as you or a friend then it is a spy. Simply shoot at the player and the disguise will wear off.


This one is wrong. Pretty sure you need the spotting ability (so you outline them in red) for this to work. Just shooting them isn't enough, as I've tried that many times now

The description for this is correct. I got by shooting a guy that was disguised as me ! Lol. All I did was shot him and the achievement popes for me. My advice is too stay by objectives and look for "suspicious" behavior.

Yeah I tried it myself, I shot and killed a guy who was me, and nothing. Where as the Operative has a ability to spot disguises, so that why I thought that. Were you buy chance an operative when you shot that guy?

I love guides that sort and categorize the achievements in a logical order. Saves me the trouble of having to do it myself.

"Great shot kid! One in a million" was one of my first achievements and it popped randomly for me. It was a pleasant surprise. I guess what happened was I was spraying this enemy and he happened to be tossing a grenade at the time. One of my bullets must have hit the grenade. Lol.

"Not so sneaky now, are you?" was the toughest one to get for me. I thought it would randomly pop from playing regularly, but it never did. I had to stalk their spawn, waiting for an operative, then just followed him around until he disguised himself.

Thanks for the helpful guide!
