Hong Kong Marketplace Completed (10G)
Tai O Completed (10G)
The Mega Restaurant Completed (15G)
Zakarov's Penthouse Completed (15G)
Chicago History Museum Completed (20G)
Slums of Kowloon Completed (20G)
Wong's Estate Completed (25G)

Just play through the game on whatever difficulty you'd like, and these achievements will unlock automatically

Game Completed - Casual (40G)
Game Completed - Normal (50G)
Game Completed - Hard (60G)
Game Completed - Hard Boiled (70G)

These achievements are just like the last set, play through the game, and they'll unlock. The difficulties are also stackable. For example, if you play through on Hard, you'll get the achievements for Normal and Casual

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UP-4Qjw=.jpgI Don't Know How to Play Those (20G)

In the mega restaurant level, on either of the first two floors, just hide the cases in a corner where you won't accidentally go near them, and just complete the floor. Personally, I believe the restaurant (1st floor) to be the easier of the two. As soon as you complete the floor, the achievement will automatically unlock. Also, on both of these levels, the "Death by Swing" achievement can also be unlocked, so if you wish, you can get them at the same time. Staying on the chandelier is also an easy way to make sure you don't go near the cases.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UP9Sgu8=.jpgPaleontologist (10G)

Completely destroy either the Brachiosaurus (long necked guy) or the T-Rex while in the Chicago History Museum

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UP6yenw=.jpgStay Dry (10G)

In the Slums of Kowloon level, stay along the top pathway. See Post #10 for some advice from Murbay

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPhImWw=.jpgMaster of Precision Aim (25G)
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPmoYf8=.jpgMaster of Barrage (25G)
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPwKigY=.jpgMaster of Spin Attack (25G)

Just kill 50, 100, and 100 enemies respectively with the special move

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPpaqcU=.jpgBarrage Specialist (10G)
Check Volucer's post #15 for the full list of weapons, use barrage at least once with each.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UP1zi1o=.jpgOld School (25G)

Go through an entire level without using any Tequila special moves. This achievement can also be unlocked after a chapter is completed, by going back to the final checkpoint, opening it up, and completing that single part without special moves. It's kind of a glitch, secret, something.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPyTc8k=.jpgUntouchable (10G)

Just win a standoff without taking any damage. The first 2 standoffs are very easy, so within a few tries this one should be easy to unlock

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPrwaRY=.jpgDeadly World (25G)

Just kill 50 enemies using the environment. That is the shiny glistening object you see on your screen, that when shot will drop a sign, explode, fall, etc., killing whatever is under/near it. This should be unlocked just through playing through the game.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPnXfRg=.jpgRolling Death (25G)

Just kill 50 enemies by laying on a rolling cart and shooting those around you.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPkxmDA=.jpgDeath by Swing (25G)

Kill 50 enemies while hanging from a chandelier, and is probably easiest unlocked while doing the "I don't know how to play those" achievement. This also helps for the "Chow would be Proud" achievement. To hang from a chandelier, just stand on the railing, and shoot at it a few times to get it swinging, then when it gets near you it will turn white and can be grabbed with LT.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPsQkYU=.jpgThe Killer (10G)

Another one that will be unlocked just by playing. You just have to shoot 10,000 rounds. Relax, it'll go by a lot quicker than it seems. I unlocked it in the 3rd level. I also unloaded a lot in the 1st level working for the "Ruthless" achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UP-LeyA=.jpgOrigami Master (35G)

Just collect 250 origami cranes. Now this is not possible to do in a single run-through, but this achievement also collects over many run throughs. Supposedly it will unlock by the end of your 2nd completion. Also, any cranes collected in multiplayer do NOT count.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPppkNk=.jpgChow Would Be Proud (15G)

Kill 10 enemies with a 5 star style rating. This is another that should come naturally on its own, and will be unlocked while completing the hanging achievement, if it hasn't been unlocked already.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPg3hYs=.jpgRuthless (30G)

This is easiest to do in the very first chapter, here is a video showing how it's done.

http://stage6.divx.com/user/Elemen7s/video/1609809/Stranglehold---Achievement-Ruthless

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPjRYKM=.jpgMassive D (20G)

Cause $75 million dollars worth of damage. This is another that will unlock naturally, and at the end of each chapter, the summary will tell you how much you tore up that chapter, in case you want to keep track of your progress

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPg9gz4=.jpgNobody Has That Much Style… (60G)

Aquire 5,000 skill points, again, something that can't be done in one run through. Also, it is in the end of chapter summary, so you can keep track of your progress. Also, it is counting the overall acquiring of skill points, not how many skill points you have available, so there is no need to worry about holding off on your spending until this one is unlocked, also, only counts single player, not MP

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPh7oHA=.jpgMeet John Woo (5G)

Just enter the unlock shop. He's the bartender, and just entering that menu will unlock the achievement

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/+0M17g==.jpgFreedom! (10G)

Unlock all the multiplayer characters in the unlock shop. It will cost about 5,350 style points, if my math is good.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UP3qcpU=.jpgIt's All Mine... (30G)

Unlock everything in the shop, for a total of 7,650 style points required, once again, if my math is good.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPkCoSw=.jpgTea Party (15G)

Just host and complete 10 online matches in either ranked or player in the Kowloon Teahouse. With a friend, and the match set to 1 minute, it can be done rather quickly.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UP1AskY=.jpgJurrasic Battle (15G)

Same as Tea Party but in the Dinosaur Rotunda

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPvFTbE=.jpgMega Jackpot (15G)

Same as Tea Party but in the Golden Dragon Casino

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UP6BQ2A=.jpgLounge Lizard (15G)

Same as Tea Party but in the Mega Lounge

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/+WI8Ww==.jpgGeronimo! (15G)

Same as Tea Party but in the Totem Pole Gallery

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPrDUAo=.jpgSea Food (15G)

Same as Tea Party but in the Tai O Drug Labs

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPsjqJk=.jpgMovin' on Up (15G)

Same as Tea Party but in the Chicago Penthouse

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPjiWb8=.jpgOne Gun To Rule Them All (10G)

Finish in 1st place in a multiplayer ranked match, pretty self-explanatory.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UP9hu-M=.jpgKilling Spree (20G)

Get 5 kills in a row without dying in a mutiplayer ranked match.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/+qPNfQ==.jpgBullet Ballet (20G)

Kill 50 opponents while in Tequila Time in either Ranked or Player multiplayer matches

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/-wEmhA==.jpgWinner Takes All (20G)

Kill 50 opponents using Tequila Bombs in either Ranked or Player multiplayer matches

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPygStU=.jpgHardboiled Killer (20G)

Kill 307 opponents in either Ranked or Player . It's really helpful to do this after unlocking John Woo as a multiplayer character, then you can stack this achievement with the next.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UPoltSI=.jpgBe the Master (20G)

Kill 100 opponents as John Woo. As mentioned in the last one, if you unlocked the previous one using John Woo, this one should have unlocked on its own.

Props on the new guide bro... Way to step up and get a new one out there.

Just got a simple question, no need to bite my head off if its been posted somewhere already, but i did look all over and can't find an answer... can the Hosting achievements be unlocked using player matches and sending out invites? I play ranked all the time, but it takes FOR FREAKING EVER to get players in the room, and friends can never find it due to the crapy matchmaking system!

WTYD
09-15-2007, 07:37 AM
Yes you can, try make it a unique room and have your friends look it up.

BTW khaos2639 the guide is perfect. One thing I like to add is that if your going for like Rolling Death,Death by Swing etc keep track of your kills, cause I kept doing the 1st lvl where you get the Precision Aiming I killed a couples of guys and then restart the checkpoint, after a while I got the Master of Precision Aim achievement if you knew this already then I'm sorry.

Khaos
09-15-2007, 07:59 AM
Yeah, anything that isn't specifically marked as Ranked, can do whatever you want. For the hosting, like I said, the bare bones easiest way to do it is make a 1 minute room, invite a friend, host 10, then they host 10, play as John Woo while you're doing it, and while you're waiting for the minute to be up, blast the hell out of each other, and you'll be well on your way to the MP achieves

As for the restarting for the precision aiming and such, I didn't know that, so thanks for the info. I'm still playing my way through it, and I use precision and the cart rather frequently, so I was just planning on going through and seeing how many unlock on their own. I'll use your advice then to clean up the missing.

Thanks for the compliments. :woop: I was kinda worried since this is the first contribution I've made, I wasn't really sure how to do it.

--edit: I changed the wording for the MP achievements so it's easier to understand. Hope it helps :)

nice guide. I have a question:
Can you get the achievements for the difficultes when you only make the last part of every chapter?
anyone tried it?

Khaos
09-15-2007, 08:12 AM
There's a forum post about it over at GameSpot asking the same question, and the general consensus over there is no, it doesn't work.

The last one seems to have disappeared!

Yeah, read my aforementioned thread titled "ummmmmmmmmm" for discussion on that very topic

Thanks for the good word man, I was super nervous about this, but now I'm feelin pretty damn good about it :)

Got this pm from Murbay with some help on the Stay Dry achievement, and the original post is too long to add it, so I'll just copy and paste it here.

Hi mate, in addition to your guide this achievement is really easy to get.

When you get to the sewer area, first of all you have to work your way down inside the building. I originally thought this was where the achievement was but I was wrong.

After the first building, you end up outside on a construction/demolition site where you have many enemies to kill. Once they are all dead you have to make your way up into another building and this is where you will get the achievement.

The floor in the building crumbles away and you can so easily fall through the floor into the water below. The best way through this is just to dive around because not all parts of the floor crumble away. It is pretty easy to get through this area and just before you leave it the achievement will pop up.

All I can suggest for people who do fall, is by now you will have grenades so work your way back near the begining of the building and drop grenades at your feet because I'm pretty sure once you leave it checkpoints.

Hey nice guide. For the "Its all mine" ach. it costs 7,650 so your math was almost correct. LOL:)

For the Origami Master does anyone know if you can just do the levels over I know I got about 200 and something of them now but I was not sure if you needed to complete the game to have them count.

Volucer
09-16-2007, 09:50 PM
Yeah, you can just replay levels (or the same single level) again and again for it. And like the Massive D and Nobody's got that much style... achievements it'll unlock when you go through the next checkpoint.

EDIT:
Also for the "Barrage with every weapon" The weapons you need are
Pistols - Which you can find pretty much anywhere
Golden Pistols - Shouldn't be too hard to find, there's some in the Penthouse level after you fight the helicoptor a second time
Shotgun - Another one that's easy to find
Assault rifle - Ditto
Sub-machinegun - Ditto
Heavy Machine gun - I think you can get these from the penthouse level onwards, but I'm not too sure
Rocket Launcher - There's one at the end of Kowloon, and one in Wong's Estate garden, in the left hut at the top of the stairs. But there's a hidden one earlier in the Mueseum level. When you get to the area which looks different, sorta like a maintenence tunnel, in the second room after the one you enter it, on the left hand corner closest to where you enter the room there's one.

Great guide, really glad that kills in player matches count too :)

asianxcore
09-17-2007, 01:11 AM
Yeah, you can just replay levels (or the same single level) again and again for it

I really wish there was an in-game option to track the number of cranes. I feel like I've picked up a billion of them :)

Do you have to complete the level to get the crane count? Or can you load up a checkpoint, grab a couple paper cranes, die and repeat?

Khaos
09-17-2007, 01:20 AM
Thanks for the input guys. As for having to finish the level or just the checkpoint, that's a question that I've been wondering for a very very long time. I think I'll figure it out tonight and let you all know.

What I'm planning on doing, if anyone wants to do it with me, is go to the unlock shop and check my style points, then do the very first level in the beginning, and do up to the first checkpoint, which is where you can get about 70 style points in about 3 minutes (It's the spot where Ruthless is the easiest), then go back to the unlock shop and see if it updated. I'll let you all know in a couple hours, got to do some things with the wife right now.

So it should be the same for cranes and style points.:)

For any of the online kills achievements....

Do you still get your kills if a person leaves your game before it's up? (ending it/assuming it's 2 person deathmatch)

Khaos
09-17-2007, 05:17 PM
Hmmmmm, I don't know. I would think as long as the host stays in the game, the room would still exist, then when everyone else leaves, the game would be over. Since the host and the room remain, my guess would be that the stats attached to said game would remain as well.

I could be very wrong tho, it's just my guess

I can confirm you would have to finish the act to get your cranes achievements I think it's the same for the style points... not sure about style points..
But I am about the origami cranes because the achievement unlocked after beating the level not while picking up a origami crane...

I works fine for me. One thing that might be your problem, is it's a Divx site, so if you don't have your Divx codecs on your computer, watching the vid will be a no-go. Try going out and downloading the Divx codec and give it another try.

just go to chapter select take the mega restaurant level the mega battle chapter... you have to defeat lok here (real easy on casual) there are 4 origami's downstairs and 1 upstairs so that's 5 origami's in less then 2 minutes... I just got my achievement this way.

Easy way to get 10,000 shot achievement! When you gett o the mini gun chopper level, just hold down the fire button - infinite ammo, no overheating - easy

Peace

Khaos
09-18-2007, 01:13 AM
Yeah, that would explain how I got the achievement on that level.......

Davey_Pitch
09-18-2007, 08:22 AM
The easiest way I found to get the Old Schoold achievement (finishing a level without any Tequila Bombs) was simply to finish the game, watch the credits, then go to continue game when I'm back on the main menu. You'll see the final cut scene again, and you get the achievement without actually having to do anything. Nice and easy, no danger of using a Bomb by mistake :)

Took me a few goes as well. The secret I think is remembering to steer the rollcart while killing people, you stay on it longer and should come off it with a streak around 33 or so stars. Kill the guys on the stairs by shooting the signs above them and you'll hit 50 pretty quickly. I ended up with a 54 star streak before it finished :)

Kill 50 opponents while in Tequila Time in either Ranked or Player multiplayer matches


can anyone confirm how this is done? me and a friend just got about 60 each and didnt get it? also we were using each others tequila time as it seemed quicker, is that where we went wrong?

09-19-2007, 02:54 PM
I got the Ruthless achievement on the first level...

As you enter the tea house in 'Hong Kong Marketplace' just use 'LB' to put your back against the pillar and look from the left side and the right to keep the combo going.

Can anyone confirm if it works or if it was just luck?

Edit: I couldn't get the video to work either, the page has an error message, but I assumed that it shows a different method.

09-19-2007, 03:08 PM
unrelated i know but was confused by an earlier thread entitled 'easy 1000' the person who posted this was accused of 'gamesaving' i had never heard of this and wondered what it was?

on a seperate note, what a game, best game out for a while in my opinion but my word how difficult is hard boiled!! didnt struggle to much on hard but cant see me completing it on hard boiled. i just cant get passed the bit with the band! - any tips would be much appreciated.

apologies if ive posted this in the wrong place, first time using the site - and congrats on what a fantastic site it is!

Don Manolo
09-19-2007, 03:37 PM
there's a thread in the forum related to the part with the band, you should check that first.. There's also a great boss guide.. Welcome to the site!

09-19-2007, 03:41 PM
yeah i saw that right after posting it.... typical!

i'll be back on it tonight to give those tactics a go!

thanks

09-19-2007, 05:57 PM
Well, I appreciate the kind words on the achievment and the boss guide. Like others said, welcome to the site, and I know you'll enjoy yourself.

If you have any problems with either of the guides, would like something explained better, have a better method than what is described, or have anything at all to add, feel free to post and I'll see what I can do about getting it into the guides :)

is the achievement collect 250 cranes as a total (like just keep loading up level 1, until i get 250 cranes?) or is it individually collected (certain amount per level?) i was just wondering cos i have several cranes scattered around in the levels.

Don Manolo
09-23-2007, 09:50 AM
You can replay any level you want to get your cranes, I've also posted a pretty fast method to get all your cranes on the forum, but I would recommend to everyone to complete the campaign at least once, best twice so you don't have to do the levels that much

i've noticed if you beat the game and go to continue with higher difficulty & then play through the game with that same difficulty level. then you don't have to beat the final boss to unlock the achievement. It worked for me on Hard. sry for my english
:)

xfrearsx
09-25-2007, 08:11 AM
The way the achievement unlocks early (for difficulties) is because once have watched the ending credits, say on casual you will unlock the casual achievement, but now you can go and continue this checkpoint (after the boss fight) with a different difficulty setting and for some reason after watching the end credits again (say on hardboiled this time), it will show on the chapter select screen that you have also defeated the final boss on hardboiled. This does not work if you just reload a checkpoint. It has to be done after completing the game, in the main menu and continue game. I know this for a fact because i did it the hard way. Was stuck trying to beat the boss on hardboiled for like 4 hours, and getting very fustrated.

Great guide!

I just got Ruthless by using the video. Great video guide for that part, man!

Also, I got 'Death by Swing' at the end of the first level in the Tea House before the first boss fight. I just swung back and forth shooting people until I died. Rinse and repeat until it unlocks.

I'm trying to find a good spot early on to do the rolling cart achievement. I believe that my choices are between the cart portion of the 'Ruthless' combo and in the Tea House before the first boss fight.

Anyone have any other suggestions? I'm up to where you have to defend the band, so I haven't made it far yet.

Thanks again for the great guide!

All I can suggest for people who do fall, is by now you will have grenades so work your way back near the begining of the building and drop grenades at your feet because I'm pretty sure once you leave it checkpoints.

I find it funny that as I grabbed the blue crane in mid-dive, the achievement unlocked just before I landed in the water. :woop:

Haha!

I can confirm you would have to finish the act to get your cranes achievements I think it's the same for the style points... not sure about style points..
But I am about the origami cranes because the achievement unlocked after beating the level not while picking up a origami crane...

Not sure about anyone else, but I got my crane achievement when the game went to save at a checkpoint mid-level. BTW, this guide and all of the comments have been awesome. Thanks.

Hardboiled aint hard at all, if you batter it right after you finish it on hard itll be so easy youll laugh I know I did, I actually found hard worse than hardboiled.

The way the achievement unlocks early (for difficulties) is because once have watched the ending credits, say on casual you will unlock the casual achievement, but now you can go and continue this checkpoint (after the boss fight) with a different difficulty setting and for some reason after watching the end credits again (say on hardboiled this time), it will show on the chapter select screen that you have also defeated the final boss on hardboiled. This does not work if you just reload a checkpoint. It has to be done after completing the game, in the main menu and continue game. I know this for a fact because i did it the hard way. Was stuck trying to beat the boss on hardboiled for like 4 hours, and getting very fustrated.

CONFIRMED!!!!

It will work. Each stage is saved with the highest difficulty completed.

I read your Stranglehold guide and I thought it was very good but I have two things:
1. To get the achievements for beating the game can you do the last checkpoint on each level?
2: To get the hosting achievements, it is easiest to do this with a friend and all you have to do is start it and have him quit. Thats how I got mine but the load time sucks.

If anyone can respond to my first question I would appreciate it

No you can't. Each checkpoint has to be beaten on hard boiled. Order doesn't matter.

Just kill 50 enemies using the environment. That is the shiny glistening object you see on your screen, that when shot will drop a sign, explode, fall, etc., killing whatever is under/near it. This should be unlocked just through playing through the game.

what level should i do this on

For the "Stay Dry" achievement, I actually fell in the water halfway thru. I made my way thru to the end of the lower level, turned round and dove onto the top level. I worked back a bit and the achievement unlocked anyways...

Just wanted to add this (I'm sure it's already here but I'm in a hurry)

The stay dry achievement comes from running through the sewage corridoors where the roof partially collapses. This is just before the cutscene where tequila is on the phone. After this cutscene, you're in the area with rocket snipers, normal snipers and some old buildings (the area where you can pick up the rocket launchers).

This new area starts you off at the top of some steps from the sewers. Instead of entering this new area, stand at the top of the steps, turn 180 degrees to face down the corridoors and perform a dive toward the pathway above you (this may take a few tries, but you can get there pretty easily).

From here, run back along the upper pathways for cranes, and the achievement, this is how I accidentally got the points.

seriously? reading that people have been having difficulties with hard-boiled has got me worried. is it that bad? worse than 'one shot, one kill' on veteran in cod4? i had trouble with that part where you're waiting with mcmillan as price for the chopper at the ferris wheel.
... just so you have a comparison:D

BlackDragon
06-09-2008, 05:33 AM
Hard Boiled sure is hard... well, it's not IMPOSSIBLE, and no, you don't get killed from taking one hit. You're still impossibly durable. You're Chow-Yun Fat, after all. However, one Sniper-bullet will take you from full health to nearly nothing, and rockets are insta-kill... enemies are also somewhat tougher, but if you get used to pulling headshots anyway, that won't matter, 'cept with the bosses.

Anyway, I think I can say, with some confidence, that the 'Ruthless' video no longer exists in the designated place. An alternate location would be nice, but I'm assuming that it just shows a guy sliding down the rails while shooting all the 'high' targets, jumping directly onto the rollcart, shooting guys while steering it towards the OTHER rail, and then jumping directly to that rail, running up it, while shooting more high targets... right? I kinda' figured that would be a pretty good combo, but actually DOING it seems... slightly more challenging.

The first level, checkpoint 2 I think, the golden dragon sign one or something, at the start there is a guy behind a food trolley with a shotgun, do this part, keep diving & learn where the enemies come from & in what order, keep nailing headshots whilst diving, took a few tries but in the end I managed a 91 combo.

It'll be quite time consuming and there are online and online DLC achievements you most probably won't get any way (there's no one online any more)..so getting to 1000 could prove to be quite a challenge..but hey, it's worth a try!

Don't know if anybody is still active in these forums, but I just wanted to ask: for the Death by swing achievement, do the kills still count if you get killed before the next checkpoint. I decided to jump in on hard on my first playthrough and I am trying the level 3 'I can't play those' area to get Death by swing but keep getting killed when the 3rd wave of enemies attack. If anybody can let me know if I'm wasting my time, I'd appreciate it.

Not sure if its been mentioned, but "Deadly World" is not unlocking when you make car explode(killing ennemies) or fire extenguisher killing them either...

I must have kill over 100 already and no achievement... so i guess the "shiny light" objects are the only one actually working.

I have done the entire game on normal, played the restaurant around 4 more times, played the zakarov penthouse 2-3 times, played a couple other levels a couple times and still no achievements...

So i guess i will have to play the penthouse again and again or that level with the rocks that can fall on them...

Seriously deadly world is giving me a headhache... i killed SO MUCH trough the environement, is there something i don't known? Like you have to NOT use your gun and melee the environement...? :mad: Seriously this one is so annoying to unlock... Worst is the "roll cart" achievements i tough i would not need to do it so much time, cause i had the impression i didn't kill much people that way, and first thing i noticed... i think it unlock on my first replay of a level...

EDIT : Ah nevermind... finally i replayed the lev 2 part called "path of destruction" and finally first rocks i made fall on them gave it to me...

But seriously this achievement is extremely misleading.... anybody would think estinguishers, exploding cars and such would count.. but they don't... cause i would had it BY A LONG TIME NOW...

The video for ruthless does not work, so i found this one on youtube... The guy make it look super easy but it took me 3 tries... and i had it barely ... 50 flush... LOL but it work in any case... Maybe its cause i was on easy.. anyway its probably the best place anyway in the game for that.
