View Full Version : Jimmy's Vendetta Achievement Guide

02-01-2012, 07:46 PM
I did not make this guide. Just seen it on the PS3 Trophies section and decided to bring it over here for people to find faster. Please sticky so others can find it faster. This works for the 360. 100% sure as i used it to get all my achievements. Guide by Lord Maim and reupped for 360achievemnts.org by the smoking ace.

NOTE: Saving in this game works slightly differently than in the regular game. You can save by going to any of the "Home" locations and using the spinning house icon, or by initiating any of the missions. An autosave from the beginning or ending of a mission will retain all of your progress, money and stats up to that point. When you continue from an autosave, Jimmy will appear on the map at the point where that mission started or ended.

Complete your first mission in 'Jimmy's Vendetta.'
Finish the opening mission and escape from prison. This trophy will unlock during the cinematic of your escape.

Achieve a 10x point multiplier in 'Jimmy's Vendetta.'
This is easiest if you can chain headshots together. Keep the chain alive by killing additional enemies before the meter runs out. Once you have a 10x multiplier, you'll receive this trophy.

Drive a total of 1,000 miles in vehicles in 'Jimmy's Vendetta.'
This is an evil, evil trophy. Luckily it isn't tied to a specific vehicle, but that is a lot of driving. Once your total distance traveled reaches 1,000 miles you'll receive this trophy.
Refer to Millionaire achievement.

Kill your enemies in 'Jimmy's Vendetta' with every weapon available in the game.
In addition to the guns available from Harry's Army Surplus, Giuseppe's and the regular gun shops, the police carry the M1A1 Thompson that is unavailable in stores. You will need to get at least one kill with all of them. Give them a heaping helping of lead salad with the following weapons:

.38 SMG
.38 Revolver
1911 Semi
1911 Special
C96 Pistol
Grease Gun
K98 Rifle
M1A1 Thompson
M1 Garand

Destroy 100 vehicles in 'Jimmy's Vendetta.'
This will also take a while to accomplish. Either using grenades and molotovs, or more economically by shooting their gas tanks.

Kill 100 enemies by headshots in 'Jimmy's Vendetta.'
You should get this naturally through working towards the Millionaire trophy, as headshots are worth 250 points as opposed to a normal kill which is worth 100. After you pop the 100th melon, you'll get this trophy.

Finish all Car Dealer missions in 'Jimmy's Vendetta.'
The Car Dealer missions are represented by the light blue pentagonal mission icons. They will become available as the story missions are completed. Steal the car that is indicated and drive it to the drop off point before time runs out.

Kill 1,000 enemies in 'Jimmy's Vendetta.'
Send a lot more of theirs to the morgue. Kill 1,000 enemies to get this trophy. Note that police and civilians do not count towards this total. The good news is that any kills you get in replayed missions still count towards this total, so you don't have to worry about running out of targets. In fact, even if you die or fail to complete a mission your total still counts.

By the end of the missions, you'll likely be about halfway to this total. To farm the rest, stock up on ammo (especially grenades) and do the mission "Account Closed" just above the east side of the Grand Upper Bridge. There is a big alley full of enemies. It will take you about two minutes with grenades to go through this alley, and there are upwards of thirty enemies each time. Don't worry about being too careful, just run and gun, tossing grenades at any cars that a lot of enemies are using for cover. If you die, or reach the end of the alley, you can restart from the checkpoint to maintain your kill totals and refill your ammo. Each time you restart this mission it will automatically save your progress.

Finish 'Jimmy's Vendetta' on any difficulty level.
Complete all the missions to earn this trophy.

Earn 1,000,000 points in 'Jimmy's Vendetta.'
You can see your score total on the map screen in the lower right corner. Either earn 1,000,000 points in "Mission Score" or "Bonus Score". A combination of the two scores will not work, you have to earn the full million in one score or the other.

To maximize your "Mission Score", play on Hard difficulty and try to chain head shots together. There are several good missions to focus on to rack up huge scores, like "Kill the Accountant" or "I Got the Stones", which can make up almost half a million between them if you maintain your chains. You can replay missions to improve your scores, but only your highest total for that mission will count towards your score.

unwraper1 has discovered a glitch that currently allows you to exploit the "Bonus Score" to get the respected achievements by falling through the map. Getting the achievement via this method will take roughly 3.5 hours of falling, depending on your starting score. See the video below. This can be done while working towards your Explorer achievment as well.
To get the achievement via this method, turn off your controller's power saving function, and plug it in to a USB cable to prevent it from turning off for any reason. Then I would advise you to do this over several nights, leaving your Xbox on overnight and saving your progress in the morning.

To save your progress, simply select "Restart Last Checkpoint" from the start menu, then go to any mission and start it to trigger an autosave. Your progress will be retained the next time you start the game. This has been tested and confirmed as working.
