View Full Version : Achievement Guide

10-28-2007, 12:40 AM
A couple quick notes before we start, opening a spoiler will give you information about the achievement it’s under unless stated otherwise. Also all the level information is based on Hard-Boiled.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/+fvFlA==.jpgHong Kong Marketplace Completed 10
Complete the Hong Kong Market Place on any difficulty

The Hong Kong Market Place is the tutorial of the game. You shouldn’t have too many problems going through this level, even on hardboiled. This level will end with a fight against…

Boss: Kwong Fang
The general strategy here is to simply grab all the paper cranes before you fight him and then unload as much precision aim and golden pistol into his face as possible. As long as you have the golden pistols this should be a cakewalk.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/-MDXog==.jpgTai O Completed 10
Complete the Tai O level on any Difficulty setting

The longest level in the game. This one may be difficult because most cover is destructible, be sure to make proficient use of all the explosive crates lying around and any other environment that you can. Also be aware that the drug labs are explosive. The level will end with you planting 14 bombs.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/-bnW-g==.jpgThe Mega Restaurant Completed 15
Complete The Mega Restaurant level on any Difficulty setting

The mega restaurant allows you to use two “Guitar Cases” that can be used on the first two checkpoints of the level and will refill your health and ammo. Each one can be used every so often so use them whenever your health starts to dip. I recommend putting them both behind one of the bars on the side; when crouched behind a bar your enemy has a very small chance to hit you while you can easily hit them. When trying to protect the band use the bar again to hide behind, you still run the risk of running out of ammo so try for head shots to save ammo. After the band you need to kill Lok to finish the level.

Boss: Lok
Before the fight be sure to grab an assault rifle and as much ammo as possible for it. When the fight starts get behind the left staircase and try to get it so that you can just barely see Lok’s head (see the video below for exact placement). Use slow accurate shots until you run out of ammo. Then circle around the arena to the back grabbing the 2 paper cranes along the way. Avoid Lok’s fire here until he has to reload then grab the crane near him and get behind the other staircase grabbing the crane there too. You should repeat what you did for the first portion of the fight again using burst shots from the assault rifle which can be found by a nearby wall. After using the ammo from this assault rifle grab another and shoot the left statues leg closest to Lok. This should trigger a cut scene; if not then continue to shoot his head until it does. Then circle around to the back again, hit the 2nd statues leg closest to Lok so it drops on him. Then barrage Lok twice. If he isn’t dead yet you can find more cranes (and health) upstairs. Fill up and then head back down to barrage Lok even more. If you barrage him right to the head every time he should go down.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/-5jfSw==.jpgZakarov's Penthouse Completed 15
Complete the Zakarov’s Penthouse level on any Difficulty setting

The level starts with you in a parking lot, fight your way through here by using whatever cover you can (be aware that cars can explode) and shooting what glints there are (mainly green signs on the roof.) After the first section you get into a standoff. Finish that and repeat the same process for this part of the garage as before (remember to shoot the green signs!!) After this garage you chase Vlad through a series of lasers beams that kill you on touch. Avoid those and chase him, fight what little resistance is in the way until you get a checkpoint and then start the…

Boss: Vlad
Now Vlad is in a helicopter and is shooting at you with a rocket launcher. Grab the 2 paper cranes near the window and run up the stairs, grab the crane on the chandelier before continuing on to the HMG. Grab that and jump down (grab a health pack if necessary) and pick up the golden guns. Now either get close and barrage him with the HMG or use precision aim. Be careful to not get caught in the fire when the helicopter sweeps across to shoot you or you will die. Finish him with whichever gun you want if need be.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/+jo0sg==.jpgChicago History Museum Completed 20
Complete the Chicago History Museum level on any Difficulty setting

Move through the museum fighting the goons as you go. You shouldn’t have too much trouble making it through this portion of the level up until the first merc fight. These enemies drop from the roof first during the portion of the level with the T-Rex in it. They take more and deal more damage to you. Find cover and play safe letting the come twords you and moving slowly. Watch out for the dude with the knife, he can get you in one or two hits. After you clear the room you get to do a

Boss: Damon
This dude hides in the higher portion of the level and tries to shoot you with his super bullet every once in a while. It’s best to avoid this at all costs. Start the fight by grabbing the two paper cranes (one’s on the bridge other is below it under a horse) then precision shot Damon while simultaneously avoiding his gun fire. After one or two shots he will release some bodyguards for you to kill and then after that you will have access to get up to him. Put whatever precision shots you have left into him and then grab an assault rifle. After every super shot he does go into Tequila time and shoot him in the head. Do this until you run out of ammo, then grab any gun you can and finish him off.
After the boss continue through the level killing and stuff until you get to the fossil exhibit. Mercs will drop from the roof again here and this time they use smoke. I found it most effective to run to the opposite side of the room, up the stairs, around the room again, and hide in the far back corner as fast as I could. You might find a different strategy but I simply hid here and let the mercs come to me as I killed them one at a time. After that the door (where I was) opens and a few mercs come out. Take them out and proceed through the level until

Boss: Jerry
Jerry’s style of fighting mimics your own and Vlad, he does matrix moves while at the same time running away using mercs to protect himself. Kill the mercs and then proceed into the next room where you fight Jerry for rizzle this time. Grab the cranes (they’re spread in a sort’ov zigzag manner in pretty obvious places) and precision aim him until you’re out. If you have the rocket launcher use it, if not simply get behind some cover and use any weapon you see fit grabbing health packs when you need them.

10-28-2007, 12:46 AM
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/-346Yw==.jpgSlums of Kowloon Completed 20
Complete the Slums of Kowloon level on any Difficulty setting

This level starts with a standoff. After finishing that go outside and work your way down killing a few enemies. Continue through the level until you get to a demolition area. There are a few snipers here as well as lots of enemies. Grab the golden pistol behind the fence to the right if you want. Make sure to use the red container as cover, it’s the most effective cover here. After getting to the next checkpoint jump across the falling ground until you reach the slums. Watch out for the rocket launchers and sniper rifles. Most snipers will have environment that can kill them. Finish the level, no boss, woo.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/-uHeFw==.jpgWong's Estate Completed 25
Complete the Wong’s Estate level on any Difficulty setting

Take out the two enemies in the tower however you want and then continue twords the houses on your right. Watch out for enemies (there’s a lot) and use the houses as cover, they contain ammo and health. Move through the village-thing killing everyone until you get to the front of the larger house where there are enemies with HMGs as well as snipers. Get into one of the red houses and grab an HMG, if not for the power, then for the upcoming boss. Kill everyone while staying in the cover of the house until…
Boss: Broadsword Helicopter
Alright either grab the rocket launcher in the last red house to the left of the road. Or use the HMG the entire time. Both work. After you grab your weapon of choice go to get the 4 paper cranes, the first one is by the fountain closest to you, the second by the fountain near the first red house on the left, the third in first red house to the right of the path, and the last to the right of where you started. Then proceed to shoot the helicopter with whatever weapons barrage you want. If need be, use non-barrage attacks on it.
After that enter the house and continue until you get into another standoff, this time against 18 people. After that…
Boss: Dupang and Wong
Start by getting to the bottom of one of the stairways, hide here and kill the guards until Wong comes out to try and kill you. Get directly below him with an assault rifle. Here you can hit him and he can’t get you. You know he can’t get you when his sniper is not out. Shoot him until he retreats and then head back to the stairs for some more guards. Do the same thing to the guards until Wong comes out again and then do the same thing to him. After Wong’s health is reduced to about half Dupang will drop down. Grab the golden guns and barrage him (there are paper cranes upstairs if you need them) and he will die. Now there is an infinite stream of guards coming at you. Use precision aim on Wong to finish him off. If you didn’t already use them grab the cranes upstairs of retreat to the bottom of the stairs again and fill up your bomb gauge until you’re ready to precision aim him. Should take two to four to drop him.

See the achievement “Game Completed – Hard Boiled”
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/-FkubQ==.jpgGame Completed - Hard Boiled 70
Completed the entire game on the Hard Boiled Difficulty setting
Play through the entire game on the Hard Boiled setting, this is unlocked after finishing the game at least once. You can check your progress in Hard Boiled by checking under the chapters section. If you need help check the above achievements for some help.
Some general tips are
-Stay under cover
-Use environmental glints
-Use health packs instead of your Tequila bomb
-Aim for the head of enemies
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UP-4Qjw=.jpgI Don't Know How to Play Those 20
In The Mega Restaurant level, complete the Casino or the Restaurant without using the Guitar Cases
Simple enough, I recommend playing through on casual. You need to get through the first two checkpoints without touching the cases, I recommend dropping them as soon as the level starts and then stay upstairs and on the opposite side.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UP9Sgu8=.jpgPaleontologist 10
In the Chicago History Museum level, completely destroy the Brachiosaurus or the T-Rex
Load up the second checkpoint in the Chicago History Museum level and find the dinosaur to you right (you can run up its spine) and continue shooting each individual bone until it falls off (Grenades are good here too.) You should unlock the achievement as the last bone falls off.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UP6yenw=.jpgStay Dry 10
In the Slums of Kowloon level, stay along the top pathway in the crumbling sewer area
Load up the checkpoint Condemned in the level Slums of Kowloon. Simply try to stay on the white area. The black area will drop you into the water after the screen shakes. Try to avoid this but if that does happen simply reload the last checkpoint. Also be aware that some parts will require you to jump over them.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPhImWw=.jpgMaster of Precision Aim 25
Kill 50 enemies with the Precision Aim special move
Load the checkpoint “Precision Aim” in level one and do it on casual. You start with 3 Tequila bombs and 4 paper cranes can be found in close proximity of you. That is a possible 7 kills every time you load the checkpoint.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPmoYf8=.jpgMaster of Barrage 25
Kill 100 enemies with the Barrage special move
For this I recommend loading the first checkpoint of the Mega Restaurant level and doing it on casual, there are a lot of enemies here and it is fairly small. Simply barrage everyone possible and rack up quick Tequila bomb by diving/shooting them in the head when necessary.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPwKigY=.jpgMaster of Spin Attack 25
Kill 100 enemies with the Spin Attack Special Move
Similar to “Master of Barrage”, head to the Mega Restaurant on casual and then wait until at least 4 people are around before activating your Spin Attack. Hopefully you can average 4 people per attack.

10-28-2007, 12:50 AM
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPpaqcU=.jpgBarrage Specialist 10
Use the Barrage special move with every weapon
For this one you gotta find and use every weapon’s barrage. You don’t have to actually use it, just watch the short cut scene of each where he reloads it.
Check out the below spoiler for where the weapons can be found

The weapons are
-golden pistol
-submachine gun
-assault rifle
-Rocket launcher
-Heavy machine gun
Most weapons can be easily acquired by loading the second checkpoint on the last level on casual. Each building has a different weapon and you should be able to grab them all and use barrage with each one.
The only weapon you can’t get here is the HMG so I recommend that you load up the last check point for the level Zakarov’s Penthouse. Here you can find a HMG up the stairs on the right. There are plenty of cranes around for you to get the barrage.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UP1zi1o=.jpgOld School 25
On any difficulty setting, complete a level without using any of the Tequila Bomb Special Moves
Play through any level without using any Tequila Bombs, I recommend the first on casual since it is the easiest. Simply don’t touch your D-Pad and you will receive it at the post mission results.
There's a well known glitch that allows you to get this. After you complete the game, press "back" to return to the main menu during the credits. Choose "Continue Game", and select any difficulty level. The final cut-scene loads and you get the achievement.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPyTc8k=.jpgUntouchable 10
On any difficulty setting, complete a Standoff by defeating all enemies without taking any damage
Load up the 3rd checkpoint in the first level. I recommend simply leaning to the left at the start and only changing where you lean when a bullet is coming at you. There are only 3 guys to shoot also which will make it easy.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPrwaRY=.jpgDeadly World 25
Kill 50 enemies by using the environment instead of guns
I recommend using the first level’s first checkpoint. There are about 16 people who you can easily kill in the first checkpoint very quickly. Simply shoot any environmental glint you see.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPnXfRg=.jpgRolling Death 25
Kill 50 enemies while riding on a roll cart
I recommend the second checkpoint in the first level on casual, jump on the cart and ride back and forth on it shooting as many enemies as possible. Don’t forget you can steer these things with the left analog stick too and that the cart doesn’t need to be going fast. Also try to avoid bodies or other obstacles.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPkxmDA=.jpgDeath by Swing 25
Kill 50 enemies while hanging from a chandelier
Load the second to last checkpoint in the first level on casual. Head up stairs and jump onto the guard rail, then jump onto the chandelier, you should start swinging, now begin shooting at everyone you can, finish the checkpoint then rinse and repeat until you’re done.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPsQkYU=.jpgThe Killer 10
Fire 10,000 times
You should have no trouble getting this but if you are simply pick up a gun and shoot it. Most guns have 150ish bullets in them, that means you need to shoot about 67 guns until they run out of ammo. Should unlock around the 3rd or 4th level.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UP-LeyA=.jpgOrigami Master 35
Collect 250 Origami Cranes
You need to start and finish each level in order to have the cranes count, that means from the first checkpoint to the post-mission stats.
The first level contains 10 easy to find origami cranes so I’ll just list those here in the spoiler, also I’ve gone ahead and taken pictures (via phone) and circled the crane with in red

-Immediately after the 2nd checkpoint, the tutorial points it out on top of some boxes


-After killing all the people in the market, a gate opens, directly after the gate you will find awning with some boxes on it. The crane is in those boxes so knock the awning down by shooting it and grab the cranes.


-After the first shootout you will see a destructible pole (marked by a yellow danger sign), knock it down and go up it until you get to the crane (and some golden guns)


-At the 4th checkpoint there will be a box right outside the door with a crane on it


-Just a little past the previous crane on a box


-Head up the stairs past the previous crane for…..another crane


-And on the ground right below the previous crane is?!?!!? Another crane


-The next crane is found after the shootout/cut scene in the middle of where the next fight will be


-Right after the previous one is a small bridge that can fall down, go up the bridge after destroying it to find another crane on a box


-the last one is found in the restaurant, go to the top floor opposite the one the boss comes from, look up and you should see a light above a table with a crane in it, shoot the light to force the crane to drop

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPppkNk=.jpgChow Would Be Proud 15
Kill 10 enemies with a 5 star kill rating
For this I recommend (as usual) playing the first levels second to last checkpoint. Jump on the swinging chandelier up top, any kill done while swinging/in Tequila time/headshot at the same time will be 5 stars.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPg3hYs=.jpgRuthless 30
Perform a 50 star Style Combo
Check out the below spoiler for this one

For this one load up the first level on casual and continue until you get to the part where you need to slide down a rail. Slide down and shoot the glints as you go. At the bottom of the rail jump onto the roll cart and kill as many people as possible while trying to stay on and reach the next rail. Once you make it to the rail interact with it and start running up, shoot the glints as fast as possible and you should have around 62 stars.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPjRYKM=.jpgMassive D 20
Cause at least $75,000,000 of damage
Damage is racked up pretty easily while playing the story, you can check out how much damage you did at the end of the level while viewing the post-game stats. The best level to get some quick damage in is the Chicago History Museum. Simply shoot anything that looks like it could break.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPg9gz4=.jpgNobody Has That Much Style… 60
Acquire 5,000 total Style Points
This took me about two playthroughs to get. You can check how many style points you got in the post-game stat page. An easy way to get a 4 star kill is to dive in Tequila time and shoot an enemy in the head. I recommend the first level for this one.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPh7oHA=.jpgMeet John Woo 5
Visit the Unlock Shop
On the main menu (right after loading the game up) there should be an option that says “Unlock Shop.” Go over that and hit A, easy 5 points.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/+0M17g==.jpgFreedom! 10
Purchase all of the Multiplayer characters in the Unlock Shop
Getting every character will cost you a grand total of 5350 points. Check out the below spoiler for a list and prices of all characters.

LOK 200
YUNG 300
WONG 500

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UP3qcpU=.jpgIt's All Mine... 30
Purchase every item in the Unlock Shop
Buying everything will cost you a total of 7350, Check out the below spoiler for a list and prices of all the non-character items.

TAI O 100

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPkCoSw=.jpgTea Party 15
Host and complete 10 multiplayer matches on the Kowloon Teahouse map
Open the below spoiler for some help with this

Set the game type so that the time is one minute. Don’t forget to do this after every match because the game type resets at the end of every game. This can be done on either player or ranked matches as long as you are the one who creates them. It doesn’t matter if the game ends early because someone quit and there were only two of you, that one will still count. For best results I recommend inviting a friend and then doing the matches, he doesn’t have to do anything other than join and stay online so he can leave and do something else. If you don’t have a friend than simply open a match and wait for someone to join and then start it. The load times will add a lot of time to these achievements and create an overall annoying feel to the game. I recommend having a magazine or TV show on since all you have to do is change the settings and hit start every 3 minutes. Completing all the host 10 achievements took me about three hours.

10-28-2007, 12:57 AM
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UP1AskY=.jpgJurrasic Battle 15
Host and complete 10 multiplayer matches on the Dinosaur Rotunda map

See the achievement “Tea Party” for tips on how to do this quickly. Make sure to set the level toChicago Penthouse.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPjiWb8=.jpgOne Gun To Rule Them All 10
Finish in 1st place in a Multiplayer ranked match
Get into a ranked match online by selecting quick game, custom game, or create game, and setting it to ranked. Then you need to win the game with the best score, in free-for-all you must have won, in team deathmatch you need to have the most kills and be on the winning team. I recommend finding a ranked match with only one other person in it. See the achievement Hard Boiled Killer for help with winning.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UP9hu-M=.jpgKilling Spree 20
Get 5 kills in a row without dying in a Multiplayer ranked match
This has to be done in a ranked match, not player. Joining a match with just one other person will make this easier for yourself. You should get the achievement as soon as you get your fifth kill.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/+qPNfQ==.jpgBullet Ballet 20
Kill 50 opponents while in Tequila Time in Multiplayer matches
You can only activate Tequila time when your yellow bar in the top left is completely full. I recommend getting a gold gun, rocket launcher, or a heavy machine gun and then sitting in a corner until you gauge is full. Then go find someone to kill quickly, hit RB to start the time, kill them, hit RB to start time again, then rinse and repeat. Also it needs to be you who used Tequila time, not someone else for this achievement to count.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/-wEmhA==.jpgWinner Takes All 20
Kill 50 opponents using Tequila Bombs in Multiplayer matches
Your Tequila bomb is in the bottom left and fills up as you shoot someone, when you kill them, and when you get a paper crane. Fully automatic weapons will fill your gauge up faster than a semi. I recommend barrage (right on D-Pad) with a shotgun, golden gun, rocket, or HMG. If you’re using a friend to help you I recommend the Totem Poll Gallery. Blowing up all the totem polls will reveal 4 paper cranes and a rocket launcher that will spawn right around you. Then have your friend sit still while you precision shot him. Set the score limit to 20 and time to 30 minutes.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPygStU=.jpgHardboiled Killer 20
Kill 307 opponents in Multiplayer matches
These kills can be done in either player or ranked matches. I recommend you go for the achievements
-Winner Takes All
-Be the Master
-Bullet Ballet
first since they all stack and by the end you will have around 200 kills. For some tips on playing open the below spoiler

Tip #1
Play only player matches.
I know you want to know just how many kills you have but after every single ranked match you need to go find another group of people to play with, this takes far too long and with player match you just start the game again
Tip #2
Play free for all matches.
Trying to compete with others for kills is altogether difficult unless you are the person who gets all the kill steals. The more people you can kill the less time you have to spend looking for them
Tip #3
Play in small maps
Don’t play Tai O Drug Labs or any other big map, stick to the little ones. Smaller area means finding people takes less time and span-camping is that much easier.
Tip #4
Keep control of the map
Stranglehold’s online play is anything but balanced. Knowing the map you’re playing on is vital. Be the first one to grab any cranes and power weapons before someone else can. There is no chance in hell someone with the starting pistols can kill a full-tequila bomb with double golden pistols. Letting your enemy get anything in terms of power could be fatal for you. If someone is dominating you then try to camp a crane or power weapon and then use it against them.
Play with as many people as possible
Like I’ve said before, the more people you have the less you have to look for them, and let’s face it, killing 5 other John Woo look-alikes with one spin attack is just awesome.

Also it's 307 since that's how many people are killed in the movie "Hardboiled"
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/302/UPoltSI=.jpgBe the Master 20
Kill 100 opponents as John Woo in Multiplayer matches
John Woo is the most expensive item in the unlock shop. Costing you a massive 2000 points he should be the first thing you save up for. Once you have enough to buy him head into any game (Ranked or Player) and select him (push X at the lobby to choose your player, Woo is under “Good Guys”.) 100 kills shouldn’t take too long, see Hardboiled Killer if you need some tips on how to get easy kills
Alright…all done
Any and all posts are welcome and sorry for poor video quality and if the mini-walkthrough was kinda sketchy, wrote it while I played through each level on hard-boiled for accurate information.

11-04-2007, 06:16 AM
great guide, i'm surprised no one has said good job yet, well great job on the guide. It helped me alot through the game

12-01-2007, 10:49 PM
this is an awesome guide, very detailed, and with videos it made it a lot easier, but there is already an achievement guide. That is probably why no one replied to this guide.., but other than that, this is awesome:woop:

12-06-2007, 10:06 PM

better than the guide we already have man, great job

Meh I've made 3 and people haven't really given a crap about 2. I get games way too slowly to be able to beat people to making a guide.

01-07-2008, 04:12 AM
I've reached the max character limit on the first 5 posts so here are the new DLC achievements.
Most of these can achieved very quickly using a boosting partner.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/302/UP4Yuq8=.jpgBulletproof 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win a multiplayer match without using a health pack.

Start a match with the time limit set to 1 minute and invite a buddy to the game. Kill him once and do your best to avoid health packs. A health pack looks something like this
and are attached to walls. Simply avoid touching those as much as possible. If necessary have your friend move to you rather than moving to your friend, so as to avoid accidentally grabbing a health pack while on your way over to him.

Win a multiplayer match without using a Tequila Bomb.

Tequila Bombs are the Heath Regen, Precision Aim, Barrage, and Spin Move. These are activated using the D-Pad on the controller and pressing in the correct direction.
Simply set the time limit to 1 minute and then invite and kill a buddy once without touching the D-Pad.

If you have absolutely no Tequila Bomb meter filled up you can press any direction on the D-Pad and still be awarded the achievement. As long as you don't actually use a Tequila Bomb you are fine.

In multiplayer, kill an opponent with an explosion in Slums Courtyard.

Load up the new level Slums Courtyard with a friend. Scatted throughout the level are propane tanks and grenades. You can use either one of these to kill your enemy and receive the achievement.

You can find some propane tanks near the bottom of the level half submerged in water. Have your friend stand near these and then shoot the propane tank a few times. It may take multiple tanks to kill your enemy. You can shoot him first, but the explosion needs to finish him off.

For this achievement you need your opponent to be on the HMG platform. You can be where ever you please when you kill him. The HMG is on a stranded little platform out in the water. In order to reach it you need to zip-line down from the wire that is on a small wooden platform outside a small house near the outskirts of the level. Then just kill the opponent on the platform.

In multiplayer, kill an opponent with a falling object in Kowloon Market.

Load up the Kowloon Market with a buddy. Look around for an air conditioning unit, these are attached to walls and are semi high up (above jumping range.) After locating a unit have your friend stand directly beneath it. Shoot the unit and it will drop on your friend, instantly killing him and awarding you 20 points.

In multiplayer, kill an opponent with a melee attack.

Get your friend into a game with you. Sometimes the melee will not work if you still have ammo inside of your weapons. The simplest way to melee is to be out of ammo so start off the round by emptying your double pistols and avoiding picking up other guns or more ammo.

Once out of ammo have your friend come over to you and then try to shoot him (RT.) Instead of shooting your gun you now punch. Hit your friend a few times and he will drop.

Of course some games a melee is as simple as a RT next to the enemy.

More than 1 guide can be up for the same game... Also where are grenades on prior maps? They sound fairly good to me.

i cant remember where they were, but i do remember having them. Probably on tai o somewhere because i love that map.

Thanks for the sweet guide drno:)

This guide should be the one stickied.

Currently working on the Ruthless achievement, definitely the hardest one I've done so far. I'm playing through that part in the first level and the best I've gotten so far is 34, I always seem to run out of enemies and break combo.

For the Ruthless achievement you should remember to always shoot the environment rather than the actual person themselves as it is worth more points. When you get on the cart try and steer it to the next rail rather than let it careen into a wall.

As shown in the video the main time when you should be aiming for the environment is while running up the rails.

Once you get it down it should be like second nature.

Thanks for the tips, I think my problem is I'm missing some of the signs and losing valuable stars, that and I didn't steer the cart all the way to the rail, so I had to walk part of the way there. I'll try this again over the weekend.

Man this guide is frickin sweet. Thanks. Its real detailed and has images and is generally better than the one on the main page (No offence to whoever made it)

For the Old School ach, all I had to do is load up the final checkpoint of final mission and it gave it to me as soon as the screen popped. I actually played level 1 without any of the tequila bomb special moves and didn't get the ach, but the one I posted did work

Great guide, thanks a million! I can't understand why THIS guide is not on the main page...

05-29-2010, 02:52 PM
Bump! Back to page 1 you go!
MUCH better guide than the stickied.

07-28-2010, 07:49 PM
Found this guide a lot more useful than the one that's stickied... hence I'm bumping this up to the top. :)

08-17-2010, 06:11 AM
Yeah, this is tons better then the other guide, most of that guide just repeats what the achievement tells you to do, not ways to get them.
