Always make use of every possible item you find. If you can't carry anymore head back to the bank to make a spot for it do not waste med packs. Sell air canisters, upgrade only what you need. IE, suit HP and Air and the only gun you use. Save as often as possible. Conserve as much ammo as possible, try shooting out the legs and crushing their heads with your foot to save ammo. Use the stasis and the stasis cheat unless you don't want to cheat. Its up to you. It does not effect achievements. (Cheats are in the FAQ). YOU WILL UNLOCK IMPOSSIBLE MODE IF YOU BEAT EASY, AS SOON AS YOU START THE GAME ON IMPOSSIBLE SAVE OTHERWISE IT WILL DISAPEER AND YOU WILL NEED TO BEAT THE GAME ON ANOTHER DIFFICULTY TO UNLOCK IT AGAIN.

At first I thought I was going to have a huge problem with this and have to go and find every one of them but I actually got both achievements just going through the game once, you will come across text messages, audio logs, and video messages, just keep looking through rooms and as you walk you will come across many of them. You can miss 18 through out the entire game. You do not need every single one. Their are 168 total. You will get a log for each time somebody talks to you and tells you what to do.

On level 10 you will come to a mini game of a zero G basketball court. You must beat the high score or tie it to move on to the next level. So all I did was start the game, jump to the very front wooden platform shoot 20 goals at level 1, wait, at level 2 shoot 21 and wait, 22, wait, 23 on and on until level 6 and you will unlock this. Don't bother getting multipliers.

Merchant10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Collect 8 schematics

Butcher 40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Dismember 1000 Limbs

Shoot for the head, arms or legs of aliens, after their dead run to their body and press RB and stomp off every limb until you just have the body left. Head, arms, and legs can come off. You can do this on normal dead bodies too. Rinse and repeat, I found it very amusing. :p

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UPwCU5Q=.jpg
Freeze 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Use Stasis on 50 enemies

Every time you see an enemy hold http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/lt.png aim at it and press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/x.png. It will slow it down then just kill it find another do the same thing. Make sure to keep your Stasis gauge full it will drain very fast when using it a lot. Use cheats to keep it filled if you like. They do not affect any achievements.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UP4jWiE=.jpg
Crackshot 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Achieve a perfect score in the Shooting Gallery

You will come across a shooting gallery in level 9. Use the Plasma cutter have it on vertical firing mode. The goal here is to shoot all the red guys as fast as possible (if you miss a red guy you lose) and without shooting a single blue guy. It takes a little bit of practice but its pretty easy. You will get good prizes too.

Picture below:

Air Alert 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Zero-G Jump over 100 times

Zero G rooms will be marked and it will tell you when your in one. Make sure you don't have an oxygen timer going it will make it 10x harder. Just keep jumping from wall to wall and you will get this. Their are many spots to Zero G jump at.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UP6JmvI=.jpg
One Gun 40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Beat the game using only the Plasma Cutter

This can be done in a good 7-8 hour run through on easy. Make sure you upgrade it all the way. It will help a lot. Stock up on nothing but ammo and a few med packs. Sell everything else. If you run out of ammo in a boss fight your screwed.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UP9pYmE=.jpg
Brawler 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill at least 30 enemies with a melee attack

This one is pretty easy. Shoot out the legs of an alien and when it starts walking with its arms run up to it and press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rb.png and you will obliterate it with your boot and it will die. Do this 29 more times.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UPrLiZg=.jpg
Maxed Out 75 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Upgrade all weapons and equipment

This achievement is a pain. Always look for blue and yellow cases on the wall each one has a power node guaranteed. Do not sell your weapons, you will lose all upgrades you bought for them, I had to find that out the hard way after wasting 35 nodes on them. You will need to do multiple play throughs on the same save. You can by power nodes at the store for 10,000 credits each. So be sure to save up your money. Concentrate on stuff you need first then move on to weapons you don't use. When you want to upgrade go to up to a work bench and press A, then select what you want to upgrade and start popping in power nodes for each upgrade slot. 155 Power nodes needed total. You do not have to waste them on the empty slots. Try and go around them.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UPsrcQs=.jpg
Ragdoll Check 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Force an enemy into a Gravity Panel 5 times

During chapter 4 you will come to a room with many panels that are missing they have blue lines coming from them. Do not step on them as they will instantly kill them. You need to get monsters on them and kill them with it and you will get the achievement. To do this have your stasis gauge full, hit them with stasis and then push them by walking into them with your body until they fly up and die. Make sure you don't go with them. Other wise you die. You should have just enough enemies, if you do happen to run out and still don't have the achievement there will be a few more panels on chapter 9.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UPkKeL4=.jpg
Big Spender 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Spend 300,000 credits at the store

This achievement is cumulative. Which means you do not have to save up to 300,000 credits and spend it all at once. You can keep spending money with whatever amount you have and when it adds up to 300,000 it will unlock.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UPvNlCM=.jpg
Full Contact 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill 30 enemies with the Contact Beam

If your going through on easy all of the weapon achievements are very simple. Most enemies die in one hit. This gun you need to press and hold http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rt.png to charge it up and then let it go. Enemies get obliterated by it.Make sure to stock up on ammo for each gun. Then once you get it store the gun in your safe and buy ammo for the next gun. Repeat for every gun achievement.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UPotbLA=.jpg
A Cut Above 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill 30 enemies with the Ripper

A very fun gun, shoots a spinning saw blade out that you can control and chop up limbs with. Stock up on saw blades for this.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UPmTgXE=.jpg
Tool Time 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill 30 enemies with the Plasma Cutter

This is your starting weapon, surprisingly one of the best in the game. Depending on how many guns your carrying, if your just carrying one gun you will get a lot of ammo for that gun. Make sure to make use of the RB while holding the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/lt.png (alt firing modes) when needed.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UPuyiMQ=.jpg
Pusher 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill 30 enemies with the Force Gun

Looks a lot like the half life gravity gun works like it too but you can pick up objects with it. Works best up close.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UPpScFc=.jpg
Live With The Hot Ones 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill 30 enemies with the Flamethrower

The flamethrower will require a lot of ammo. You will burn through a canister of fuel for one guy. Aim for the arms or legs. Make sure to keep plenty of fuel tanks for it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UP-wm64=.jpg
Autofire 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill 30 enemies with the Pulse Rifle

I didn't have a problem getting this. Aim for the legs and arms. If you get surrounded by enemies press and hold http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/lt.pngand then hold RB you will get on one knee and you will hold the gun up shooting all around you. Very awesome.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/UP4QYz0=.jpg
Eviscerator 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill 30 enemies with the Line Gun

Aim for the shoulders and it should just about kill every small monster in 1 hit. Keep only one weapon in your weapon slots for lots of ammo.

There's Always Peng! 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Find the Peng Treasure

You can find this on chapter 11. In between the two walk ways. Its an award probably an easter egg from the developer. Anyway just grab it with kinesis and pick it up. It can be sold at the store for 30,000 credits!

From Sgt Dex Grif: Peng's Treasure is located directly to your right as you exit the ship on Chapter 1. Unfortunately, its also out of reach. When you come back here in Chapter 11, you will have Kinesis to grab it with.
Picture of it - http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/1451/pengstreasurekf8.jpg (http://imageshack.us/)

Mindless Prey 30 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif Kill the Hive Mind

You cant miss this. This is the very last battle.

This boss is the size of one of Resistance 2 boss's. Its pretty epic. Good thing hes easy. When you start the battle start strafing left and right dodging the tentacles that come at you. First aim for 5 the yellow blobs on top and shoot all those once those are gone, shoot the ones in his rib cage. After their all gone its dead, simple as that.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/s1.jpg
Exterminator15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill the Leviathan
You will come across the Leviathan at the end of chapter 6.
He is a very huge boss. At the very beginning of the battle. White worm like things will shoot out from underneath it, quickly shoot the yellow parts of them to kill them. After all 3 are dead it will shoot exploding rocks at you from the middle of its mouth, while its shooting catch them with kinesis and shoot them back for the playing catch achievement. After you get it just shoot them before they leave his mouth and it will hurt him more. Keep shooting them and its dead. I finished it in under 2 minutes on easy.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/s2.jpg
Brute Force15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill a Brute

During the game you will face many of these. The line gun is very good against them. Try and shoot them between the shoulder blades. Other times if you shoot them enough they will lay down and get tired and you can go around behind them and shoot their back till they die.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/475/s4.jpg
Playing Catch10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Catch a Brute or Leviathan Pod using Kinesis

From Sgt Dex Grif: I've never had a brute shoot at me, personally, so I did this during the Leviathan battle in Chapter 6. Wait until the mouth starts spitting pods at you, grab it with kinesis, and shoot it back.
From EternalDamntion (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/member.php?u=27114):When your facing a brute shoot off its shoulder and it will start launching pods from it, grab it with Kinesis and send back at him.

Slugger 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif Kill the Slug Boss with more than 50% shield strength remaining

When you get to the slug boss the one thats covering up the Array right before you get on the gun go to the save point so you can restart if you mess up, after you saved as soon as you get on the gun and start shooting aim for the middle left tentacle. Press RT and LT at the same time really fast but dont over heat the guns. You should be able to kill it pretty fast. After that take your time. Dont let the shields go underneath 50%. If you mess up just quit and load again.

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/yD/KW/1YCLiGJhbC9ECBsFG1lTWTU3L2FjaC8wLzIwAAAAAOfn5-q5MtQ=.jpg
Don't get cocky, kid 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif Survive the ADS Cannon with over 50% shield strength remaining

As soon as you cross the big cap where the asteroids are coming at you. Have the door close and SAVE right before you get on the gun. If you don't save and go below 50% shield strength on the gun you will not get the achievement. I just got this achievement with 77 shield remaming. What you need to do is focus on the big rocks and the really fast ones. Fire both guns at the same time. It will kill the big rocks a lot faster. Remember that the sequence is scripted so it will be different every time. It took me about 3-4 times and I finally got an easy script. So if it goes to 49 quit out and load again you will be right next to the gun for another try. Happy rock shooting :)

From: Sgt Dex Grif: This is the segment on Chapter 4 where you have to shoot down the asteroids before they hit the ship and is pretty difficult. Remember you have two guns, and you can hold down triggers, but the guns will overheat. Try to only concentrate on the ones headed straight for you and the huge ones that split. I noticed that some of the asteroids will fly off screen and won't damage you.

Kickin it 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif Escape from a Lurker's grab attack 10 times

Upgrade your armor to the max amount of HP you can get. Get a few medic packs. Then go on the hunt for the lurkers. They look like little babies, they have 3 little tentacles that come out of their back. Run up next to them and let them lunge and attack you. They should start stabbing your back/neck. Quickly tap A and get them off of you. Repeat 9 times :)
Lurkers look like this -

Get off my ship!15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill the Slug Boss

When you get to the canon shoot it once, it will then raise up 4 big tentacles. This will start throwing junk at you if enough of it hits the ship it will blow up and die. So you need to make sure you shoot it before it hits the ship. Look at slugger for an easy way to get this achievement and the slugger achievement at the same time.

Peng's Treasure is located directly to your right as you exit the ship on Chapter 1. Unfortunately, its also out of reach. When you come back here in Chapter 11, you will have Kinesis to grab it with. As soon as you step into the landing bay in Chapter 11, it will be to your right, in between the catwalks and over the railing. It is a small golden trophy.

Here are some other ones if you need.
Secret Achievements:
Brute Force - Kill a Brute
You can't miss it. The Brutes are the huge, tank-like necromorphs. You have to fight about four or five in order to complete the game. The first is on Chapter 4.

Don't get cocky, kid - Survive the ADS Cannon with over 50% shield strength remaining
This is the segment on Chapter 4 where you have to shoot down the asteroids before they hit the ship and is pretty difficult. Remember you have two guns, and you can hold down triggers, but the guns will overheat. Try to only concentrate on the ones headed straight for you and the huge ones that split. I noticed that some of the asteroids will fly off screen and won't damage you.

Playing Catch - Catch a Brute or Leviathan Pod using Kinesis
I've never had a brute shoot at me, personally, so I did this during the Leviathan battle in Chapter 6. Wait until the mouth starts spitting pods at you, grab it with kinesis, and shoot it back.

Exterminator - Kill the Leviathan
Yet again, you can't miss it. This is the boss at the end of Chapter 6 and is very easy. Simply shoot the tentacles in the yellow spots, and shoot the mouth when it opens. Simple as that.

Get off my ship! - Kill the Slug Boss
Once again, you can't miss it. This is the second cannon segment on Chapter 8 where you are fighting, well, a giant slug. Just shoot the tentacles in the yellow spots and shoot down the trash they throw at you.

Slugger - Kill the Slug Boss with more than 50% shield strength remaining
This is much easier than its predecessor. Just take it slow, concentrate on one tentacle at a time, and don't take any unneccessary chances.

Mindless Prey - Kill the Hive Mind
Ah, the final boss of Chapter 12. Despite its size, it is easily taken down. To begin with, strafe from side to side to avoid its tentacles then shoot the yellow spots on its face. Lather, rinse, repeat. When two are left, it will pick you up, and you must shoot at it while hanging upside down. There is a time limit here, so be careful. After it drops you, return to the strafing loop, but this time, shoot at its exposed chest. Lather, rinse, repeat, Achievement Unlocked.

A much easier way to get the ragdoll achievement is to go to the same area on level four.
But use stasis on them and just push them into it.
If you run out of guys to push in, after you beat the brute, two more guys spawn outside, just lure them back into the room and stasis them.

its much easier.

You will come across a shooting gallery in level 7. Use the Plasma cutter have it on vertical firing mode. The goal here is to shoot all the red guys as fast as possible without shooting a single blue guy. It takes a little bit of practice but its pretty easy. You will get good prizes too.

For RagDoll Check, I used stasis and pushed them in, and I tryed to lure them into it, but I didn't get it right away. I actually got it in the second room on that chapter with those, where those Black Slashers are walking around. They got me against a wall and I just used RT to melee the crap out of them, and they stumbled into the Grav Panels. Kinda funny to watch.

wow great guide toasty!

i haven't gotten the game yet because im in australia. but i just want to know 2 things:

1. are most achievements mixable? what i mean is, can i dismember 1000 limbs over easy then hard mode? also do you need to get the logs all in one play through or on same difficulty, in second playthrough?

2. with certain achievements can you die and restart from a checkpoint but retain your stats? so if you kill 29 enemies before the next checkpoint does the game still remember that?

thanks!

Well, the "official game guide" by Prima basically tells you that you got to save on Impossible mode ONCE you unlock it, or it doesn't stay unlocked.

That is... once you unlock it, start a new game on impossible, get to the first save point, then save.

If you don't, it doesn't stay unlocked.

I'd also like to point out that some of the stuff in this guide has been stolen from Prima's guide too ;) some of it even word for word... heehee...

Strange how it isn't in some crazy language nobody has ever heard of then...

You'd think it'd say something like, "glip slahwo ploblitty floo!"

I think you are actually using American English in your own guide... So... you couldn't have actually made up every word of the guide...

And plus... taking information from other people who contribute without crediting them is the same as plagerism from an "Official Game Guide".

However, I don't care who wrote it. I'm just pointing out the obvious, that some sentences are direct quotes and lines from the official guide by Prima. Whomever uses them is basically stealing them, regardless of who "contributed them".

Plus... if someone contributed content to your guide, you no longer "made it yourself with your own words".

Please pay attention to the langauge we've all agreed to use. Words mean things. Choose them carefully and string them together appropriately.

Ladies and gentleman, attend carefully!



But actually, I don't mind if the information was jacked from one person or another. I also don't care who gets credit. Very few people are going to become widely known for "making an achievement guide". It probably won't even net you a job anywhere. People will use your guide, not caring who you are or why you made it, and then move on.

The only time you EVER read the author of a piece of work is if you enjoyed it a lot, and want to read more things by that person. And, newsflash, that doesn't happen much, if at all, outside of standard literature and novels.

I just wanted to point out that some of this information is in the official game guide in case, you know, moderators or whatever, have a problem with direct quoting from an official money making entity. There could be legal ramafications there, after all.

But, if they don't care, I don't care. I'm just glad all the information is out there for people to use.

So, by all means, get extremely defensive about it. You know, 'cause that ALWAYS convinces people you've done nothing wrong.

Game on, guys, game on!

I just have one single question about the guide...

During the "one gun" achievement playthrough... Does ammo for the cutter stay pretty abundant through the entire game, or will I have to hoard it from earlier levels and buy it in later levels?

Jesus buddy go get some help. Stop taking everything so seriously. I don't even have the stupid Prima guide, I didn't even know it existed for this game. They are a waste of money why would I copy off of that.

On to your question. The ammo is cheap and you get a lot of it and as long as you carry that gun only you will find more of that ammo. The game changes drops with what your carrying.

Don't worry, melee attacks don't count against the achievement. However, you can not switch to another weapon at any point during the game. Doin so will prevent the achievement from unlocking. So the safest bet, to avoid accidentally switching weapons, is to just leave the other 3 slots empty.

I think it is hysterical how long his post are. They are all at least 500 words.

That's when you buy a copy, play it. Then when you're free copy comes in, return that one to the store.

Now, just to confirm:

For the Maxed Out achievement: Using the Elite armor (or the Scorpion armor for that matter) does not affect the achievement.

Likewise, you do not have to fill every blank slot on any given track. You just need to max the attributes.

Yes you should be able to finish it if your starting on easy. For logs just keep in mind that you do not have to find every single one in the game I missed 2 and still got the achievement in level 11. and there really not hard to find. Imposable is not to bad you take allot of damage but if you use the stasis code its not bad just keep freezing them and melee them to death lol it helps conserve ammo.

That is... once you unlock it, start a new game on impossible, get to the first save point, then save.

If you don't, it doesn't stay unlocked.


if you've unlocked impossible mode you don't have to make a save to keep it unlocked. If you go to make a new game and you don't have the option to start on impossible mode then just reload your save that unlocked it and quit out and then try starting your new game and impossible mode will be back on the list.

yes, the game carries over, once you beat the game you can reload the save and it will start a new campaign and you'll have everything you've acquired except for the kinesis ability, that you'll have to wait until the second level to get back. unfortunately you can only carry the game over on the same difficulty though, you can't use everything for the other difficulties.

there are only 5 regular suits (1-5), the only level 6 is the military suit awarded for completeing the game. the regular suits are ok but the 2 DLC suits (both DLC suits are level 5) are much better im my opinion, the increased armor and especially the increased inventory slots are a real bonus.

yes, the game carries over, once you beat the game you can reload the save and it will start a new campaign and you'll have everything you've acquired except for the kinesis ability, that you'll have to wait until the second level to get back. unfortunately you can only carry the game over on the same difficulty though, you can't use everything for the other difficulties.

there are only 5 regular suits (1-5), the only level 6 is the military suit awarded for completeing the game. the regular suits are ok but the 2 DLC suits (both DLC suits are level 5) are much better im my opinion, the increased armor and especially the increased inventory slots are a real bonus.
So the regular suit leveled up doesnt have as many slots as the DLC?
What about the military suit? Is it any good?

TheNookieMonstr
I posted it about it in hear earlier. Then some one else did it again a couple post later.
It really should be in the guide!!!

But once you unlock impossible mode, dont quit the game!!!
You have to start it up and get to a save point and save your game.
Otherwise it goes away for some strage reason.

Which means you got play through it all again(or a last save)-sorry.

Ragdoll Check 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Force an enemy into a Gravity Panel 5 times

During chapter 4 you will come to a room with many panels that are missing they have blue lines coming from them. Do not step on them they will instantly kill them. You need to get monsters on them and kill them with it and you will get the achievement. To do this have your stasis gauge full, hit them with stasis and then push them by walking into them with your body until they fly up and die. Make sure you don't go with them. Other wise you die. You should have just enough enemies.

This sentence should read " Do not step on them as they will instantly kill you."

One quick question.

My brother is currently going through the game and is on Chapter 5. He has about 600 limbs dismembered so far and probably used stasis on about 40 enemies. I am going to start a new game ( On a different save obviously) and play through the game using only the Plasma Cutter. Will it stack up with his save for the dismemberment achievement? Will I be able to get around 400 more dismemberment(s) and than the achievement will pop? Same goes for weapon and stasis achievements.

The shooting range is in the room before the laser chandelier thing. Alternately it's the first large room on the upper deck.

In the engine (fire) room room move the cylinders with kinetics and shoot out the fuses to stop the fire, three on each side. After you get the first three, backtrack and use the other cylinder to get the other three. Make sure you stay very close to the cylinder or you will burn. Do the shooting range before this, as there's no going back when you grab the core

In chapter 9, there are more areas with gravity panels, in a particular room with a lot of necromorphs. If you haven't gotten the Ragdoll Check achievement by this point, you will almost surely get it in there. Try running around and dodging until it finally pops up, enough of them seemed to die on their own accord.

Getting right next to them having them touch you should make them lunge at you. Yes it will disable it even if you select another weapon. Keep all other weapons the the bank have only the plasma cutter in all of your weapon slots.

Thanks for the guide, few things I noticed though:

Merchant10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Collect 8 schematics

Some times these objects will have a dark blue glow. Schematics are like blue prints for armor and weapons, they allow you to buy them at the store or upgrade your suit. Their is a schematic for 6 levels of suits and 6 guns. You should get this early in the game.

We should make a list of chapters, where the prints are.

Maxed Out 75 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Upgrade all weapons and equipment

This achievement is a pain. Always look for blue and yellow cases on the wall each one has a power node guaranteed. Do not sell your weapons, you will lose all upgrades you bought for them, I had to find that out the hard way after wasting 35 nodes on them. You will need to do multiple play throughs on the same save. You must find the schematic that lets you buy power nodes. They are 10,000 credits each so be sure to save up your money. Concentrate on stuff you need first then move on to weapons you dont use. When you want to upgrade go to up to a work bench and press A, then select what you want to upgrade and start popping in power nodes for each upgrade slot.

What do you mean the schemtaic to buy a power node? I thought I could buy them immediately.

Eviscerator 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Kill 30 enemies with the Line Gun

Its rare if you find some ammo for this gun. So you will need to buy plenty at the store. Aim for the shoulders and it should just about kill every small monster in 1 hit.

None of the weapon ammo is rare, just use this bank other weapons etc. Seems to drop ammo for weapons you have equipped.

Ragdoll Check 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg Force an enemy into a Gravity Panel 5 times

During chapter 4 you will come to a room with many panels that are missing they have blue lines coming from them. Do not step on them as they will instantly kill them. You need to get monsters on them and kill them with it and you will get the achievement. To do this have your stasis gauge full, hit them with stasis and then push them by walking into them with your body until they fly up and die. Make sure you don't go with them. Other wise you die. You should have just enough enemies.

From Sgt Dex Grif, and Atari6: To get the ragdoll achievement is to go to the same area on level four.
But use stasis on them and just push them into it.
If you run out of guys to push in, after you beat the brute, two more guys spawn outside, just lure them back into the room and stasis them.

Also chapter 9 there are some spots, I actually unlocked it here as I only had 3 or 4 "gravity panel" kills up until this point.

Do you have to insert power nodes into empty slots as well? Or is a weapon/equipment considered fully upgraded when all the colorslots are filled?

Big Spender 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Spend 300,000 credits at the store

This achievement is stackable. What I mean is you do not have to save up to 300,000 credits and spend it all at once. You can keep spending money with whatever amount you have and when it adds up to 300,000 it will unlock."Cumulative" is a much more appropriate word than "stackable".

Don't get cocky, kid 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif Survive the ADS Cannon with over 50% shield strength remaining

As soon as you cross the big cap where the asteroids are coming at you. Have the door close and SAVE right before you get on the gun. If you don't save and go below 50% shield strength on the gun you will not get the achievement. I just got this achievement with 77 shield remaming. What you need to do is focus on the big rocks and the really fast ones. Fire both guns at the same time. It will kill the big rocks a lot faster. Remember that the sequence is scripted so it will be different every time. It took me about 3-4 times and I finally got an easy script. So if it goes to 49 quit out and load again you will be right next to the gun for another try. Happy rock shooting :)

From: Sgt Dex Grif: This is the segment on Chapter 4 where you have to shoot down the asteroids before they hit the ship and is pretty difficult. Remember you have two guns, and you can hold down triggers, but the guns will overheat. Try to only concentrate on the ones headed straight for you and the huge ones that split. I noticed that some of the asteroids will fly off screen and won't damage you."Scripted" means that it will be the SAME every time. Use "random".

I've just finished the game for a first time, using mainly the Plasma Cutter, so I'm hankering to beat it again with just the Plasma Cutter for "The One Gun" Achievement.

My question is, can I replay my completed save state and use the pistol the entire play through? That way I can use all my spare cash/nodes to upgrade the weapons I don't use. Or will I have to create a new save file?

Most of them are on the floor in a corner of a room, i wouldn't say you have to hunt for them but if you look around most rooms there normally visible. I can't remember where those ones are but i can tell you that you don't need to look far for them.

On level 11 when you are retrieving the cargo there are about seven lurkers in that area, so kill off the other necromorphs then let those attack you. There are at least three lurkers on the previous level so on 10 and 11 you could easily get Kickin' It.

Question--

When getting the various weapon achievements, do you have to deal ALL the damage to the necromorph with the given weapon? Or can you dismember them with the plasma cutter and finish them off with whatever you're trying to get the achievement for?

I'm asking because I'm not a really big fan of the crappy flamethrower and on hard it seems to be taking me quite a long time to get 'Live With The Hot Ones'.

Skelix
10-24-2008, 06:53 AM
To answer some recent questions...

When you beat the game on a difficulty, we will say easy. You will get to save the game to a slot. Now to play the game over and to keep weapon upgrade progress you load that slot, you don't "start a new game".

Your load file will now be a new game from the beginning with all your weapons + their upgrades, your rig upgrades, your inventory+bank and cash. Plus you will have accesss to the military suit (need to buy it I believe).

The only thing you won't have will be stasis and kinesis, but when you do get them at their story point, they will have whatever node upgrades you sunk into them.

As for weapon kills (30 of each etc), it's the final killing blow. So yes if you're good, blast a leg off with your good gun blast another with the one you want the achievment with. Sides all those little guys all count etc so none of the weapon ones are hard at all.

Also, I can confirm. When I loaded up my slot for my second play through (I did easy first time around). I unlocked my melee kill achievment and the kick 10 of those baby monsters off you. I did less than the achievment requirement, so those X # of times achievments seem to carry over.

For some odd reason i got this while shooting the creatures it unlocked before i killed so the easy way to do this without getting headaches is just use 1 weapon but carry the plasma cutter with you just in case you run out of ammo, and yes you will run out of ammo at points trying to do this.

Something I have noticed though if you carry say the line cutter, all ammo around the game will be for that gun if you carry the plasma cutter as well its sort of split in half some ammo will be line cutter some will be plasma cutter.

And for those worrying about the Surgeon/Butcher achievements, I got Surgeon about half-way through Level 4. I stomp off every limb on every body I come across [partially because I think its hilarious], so I imagine it won't be so hard to get Butcher in the first play-through [sorry if that has already been said].

just wondered to those who have comlpleted it on impossible is it,

its just i want to do it the proper way: as in start a new save and have issac at his most basic starting on impossible. Getting the achievement the way the developers intended i guess

is this easily achieved? because ive played hard modes on games before and breezed through.

The beginning can be hard just for the fact you have nothing and they can kill you in like 2-3 hits, stasis is your best friend it will help conserve ammo try to use melee in the early levels, that way you have ammo for the harder levels. Also do the mini games shooting range and the z-ball you can get some good stuff to sell and healing items.

ps why you where not in the final SOTF is still a mystery to me I loved you entry.

as madcap has stated, use the statis cheat..that's the easiest way to do it, i dont know if i could have done it other wise..if you want to play thru it without using that i wish u the best of luck. they take alot of your energy, but you have to hit them quite a few times with your shots....

Also how exactly does the basketball achievement unlock, what exactly do I have to do? It unlocks after you get to level 6. You just need to keep beating your previous high score to advance to the next level.

Z-Baller5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg Complete Level 6 in Zero-G Basketball

On level 10 you will come to a mini game of a zero G basketball court. The game goes by high scores. You must beat the high score to move on to the next level. So all I did was start the game, jump to the very front wooden platform shoot 20 goals at level 1, wait, at level 2 shoot 21 and wait, 22, wait, 23 on and on until level 6 and you will unlock this.

You don't have to beat your high score every time. I completed this achievement today and I didn't beat my high score after Level 2. All you gotta do is play the 6 levels. Probably why it's only 5 points :D

Yes you can. Just make sure not to fire any other weapon.
Just to be safe, put all other weaponry in the safe and keep only your cutter in your inventory.

I was just thinking about the pack rat achievement this is just common sense but how i got it was by saving and buying a bunch of cheap air canisters with a little bit of money and storing them so you can get the achievement pretty early in the game.

Feel this needs adding.

Z Ballers Achievement you don't have to beat the high score you just have to equal it.
Also you can ignore the multipliers and just stand on the nearest board and fire in singles, you have more than enough time.

There are at least 2 more schematics to be found in form of those for the medium and big med packs. Thanks for the guide!

Yes, melee only. However, the curb stomp classifies as such.
Keep going. That is exactly how I got mine. Seemed like it took forever though!

Yeah, think to pass level 1 you have to get 20 points, then for level 2 get 21, then for level 3 get 22 etc.

Hi everyone,

I have a quick question. Have just completed the game within the past 30 minutes - amazing game, 9/10 for sure!

I'm just wondering about the One Gun achievement. I completed the game on Medium, and I'm planning on using the same New Game+ file to go through the game again using only the Plasma Cutter. But, I've read that even if you choose another weaopon without even firing it, then that counts against the achievement.

My question is, is this true? Because I've loaded up my completed file, but I've started the game with the Line Gun already in my hand! Do I have to start a fresh game from scratch to get the One Gun achievement?

Not that I would mind doing that I suppose. I'm planning on going through it again on Medium to max everything out, while at the same time going through Impossible mode for the challenge.

Edit: Never mind, I've just read a response from UK Mylo here - http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=100412 - Thanks :P

I achieved this at 16 points. You do have plenty of time to get it in singles, but a quick jump at beginning of each round to a multiplier does buy you some time.
Another tip on this level is when you have reached your highscore of 16, catch the g ball one last time and leave it by one of the front shooting platforms (let go of your B button), return to the starting platform, then wait for the time to run out - this way it's a doddle to find it at the beginning of the next round.

For the Maxed Out achievement, do you need to upgrade to the Level 6 suit or is that basically wasted credits? And from what I understand, you cannot sell any of your weapons or it will not award you the achievement?

It's actually quite easy; especially with using cheats. I think I died a total of like 5 times on Impossible mode when I was using cheats.

I certainly died ten or twenty times, but if it's too hard you can always spend the $5 or so to get the DLC (I didn't.) Certainly not as difficult as a game like CoD or Halo.

you can freeze the same enemy 50 times and it will unlock.

just use the code to replenish your stasis and its easy to get right off the bat. and yes, you'll prolly get it eventually just playing like normal :)

Does anyone know of a walkthrough guide that has detailed descriptions or images/videos of what to do. This would help me out a lot.

I've watched a couple of the rooster teeth achievement videos but there not complete walkthrough of the entire level just small sections on how to get achievements.

Well, I must say, that's a situation I never thought of. I personally wouldn't risk it, which may be difficult in your case.

In my head, melees should be okay. More so with the stomps than anything else. I would recommend retrieving the Plasma Cutter, however, if you can't get one immediately, I suggest using stasis on everything and running by everything so you don't fire a shot. I don't believe there are any situations forcing you to fight (I could be mistaken).

I personally am not sure on how the game registers melees with other weapons. Personally, I wouldn't risk wasting my time and just start a new game or something.

01-13-2009, 12:15 PM
melee is ok. It is actually kind of unavoidable since in a couple places those anoying little leeches are hiding in the storage boxes you curb stomp. I got the achievement and used melee on occasion. And before you get there, yes using the turret is ok, it is part of the story and no way around it.

Kickin it 10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif Escape from a Lurker's grab attack 10 times

Upgrade your armor to the max amount of HP you can get. Get a few medic packs. Then go on the hunt for the lurkers. They look like little babies, they have 3 little tentacles that come out of their back. Run up next to them and let them lunge and attack you. They should start stabbing your back/neck. Quickly tap A and get them off of you. Repeat 9 times :)
Lurkers look like this -

This carries over right? I've been grabbed by Lurkers about 4-5 times (if I had to guess) & restarted since I don't like being damaged, especially on Impossible. One of the last achievements I need along with the "Kill 30 enemies with X weapon".

Kewl guide although I completed it on medium my 1st and 2nd run through (getting one gun & weapon achievements) and have come back a while later to find I can't play impossible difficulty.

However I already knew about the glitchyness with impossible leaving if you don't start a new game straight away but I found that if you still have a completed game save (when it asks you to save it at the very end) load that up and it'll start a new game, then press start and quit out as soon as possible and Impossible difficulty will be there again.

Don't know if that will help anyone but yeah just thought I'd let people know :)

I have a question regarding the starting a new game with an old save file, for the max out achievement...

I'm not quite getting what I should do... I just started the game, played the 1st chapter and in the beginning of the 2nd Chapter I saved over the original save (the save from the 1st chapter), will I have a problem with this for the achievement?

How does it work the thing to start a game with the previous save file? if i load the file won't it go to the point where the game saved last? That is the thing I don't understand... sorry for the lameness! :confused:

another question, on my 1st play I was going for the One Gun Achievement too, but i read if we equip one of the other guns even without firing them it will cancel the achievement, so I bought two other guns already and immediately stored them in the bank. is it possible to upgrade the guns that we have in the bank or do we have to be carrying them to be able to upgrade them? If it's not possible to upgrade them while their are in the bank is it possible to upgrade them without holding them (meaning is it possible to upgrade them while they are in the Inventory)?

Thanks for this guide :)

It's fine to keep saving over you old saves, but when you finish the game for the first time you will want to make sure you keep that save safe. To start a second play through, load up the last save from your first game, this save will be called Game Cleared, it will then start the game again, this time being round 2. You will have all your money, guns, ammo, items from your last play through.

I did the one gun achievement on my first play through, but I never even bought another gun, so I don't now how equipping another gun effects the achievement. There is no need really for you to buy others guns on your first play through, this way you are guaranteed to get the achievement without any problems and any chance of accidentally equipping another weapon and ruining the achievement.

You can't upgrade weapons when they are in the bank.

When you're doing a round 2 (3 etc.) play through is there a way to change the difficulty or can you only continue doing the same difficulty you started with? I was expecting to carry over all my equipment for impossible difficulty but it looks like I'm going to have to start fresh on that and none of it will count towards maxing out all weapons >_<

Can't reload to get the Lurker achievement? I didn't get it from the first play through. Probably escaped about 5 times. Don't feel like trying to do it on impossible. Right now I am in intensive care, (on medium) and hoping there will be more Lurkers soon.

They don't have to be all on a single playthrough so as long as you escape from the Lurkers 5 more times on your second playthrough you'll be fine.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this already: but after you beat the game once, to unlock Impossible and the military suit etc. Well the guide says start a game on Impossible and save right away or you'll have to beat the game again to unlock it. Well it is true if you turn off the game after unlocking Impossible it does disappear upon restarting the game although it's simply fixed by reloading your new game plus file or the continuation file for round 2 etc, then just quit and go to title screen pick new game and bam Impossible will be there. No need for another run through. :)

Another Note: Just finished a run on easy, going all the way through round 2 to get "Maxed Out" and it took about 11 and a half hours. Never touching Dead Space Before in my life. Just if you wanted to know how long it would take about to get all upgrades for everything.

Time for Impossible and One Gun! Yay! Can't Wait!
Awesome guide, and road map to! Tons and tons of help.

EDIT: Just finished Impossible while Getting "One Gun"
Final time was 7 hours and thirty minutes. Plus I have to say it was about 99 times as fun as stupid retard easy mode was. Totally awesome game, now bad total time to 1000, 19 hours. Wish there was more to do in this game though, come on DLC!!

I was wondering if the creator of the guide could fix the many grammatical mistakes in the descriptions of each achievement. Some of them are hard to read because of the lack of proper punctuation and what not. Thanks.
hell i had no problems at all with the guide

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this already: but after you beat the game once, to unlock Impossible and the military suit etc. Well the guide says start a game on Impossible and save right away or you'll have to beat the game again to unlock it. Well it is true if you turn off the game after unlocking Impossible it does disappear upon restarting the game although it's simply fixed by reloading your new game plus file or the continuation file for round 2 etc, then just quit and go to title screen pick new game and bam Impossible will be there. No need for another run through. :)

Another Note: Just finished a run on easy, going all the way through round 2 to get "Maxed Out" and it took about 11 and a half hours. Never touching Dead Space Before in my life. Just if you wanted to know how long it would take about to get all upgrades for everything.

Time for Impossible and One Gun! Yay! Can't Wait!
Awesome guide, and road map to! Tons and tons of help.

EDIT: Just finished Impossible while Getting "One Gun"
Final time was 7 hours and thirty minutes. Plus I have to say it was about 99 times as fun as stupid retard easy mode was. Totally awesome game, now bad total time to 1000, 19 hours. Wish there was more to do in this game though, come on DLC!!

Thanx and very good guide-trying @ the moment Maxed out on my 2nd run through,not sure if I sold any weapons first time round. I hope not cause that would suck.

Ok, so over a year ago I completed my first playthrough of Dead Space on easy difficulty. However, I forgot to start a new playthrough on impossible as soon as I finished. Thus, I have realized I'm going to have to do another run though to re-unlock impossible. I was simply wondering if this quick run though could be done on easy again or did I have to complete the game on a different difficulty like normal or hard? Thanks.

Hey, thanks for the guide.
Just one question, for the "One gun" achievement, can i save, fire other guns and then load the save and still get the achievement? Im wondering cause i didn't get all of the gun-achievements on my first round.

my recommendation would be to make a seperate save slot at the point where you plan to get your weapon achievements. load from that one instead of your main file just to be sure.

as for my recommendation for the game overall, it would be to do One Gun on the easy/med playthrough, meaning you dont handicap yourself for the impossible playthrough. just my thoughts.

Nice guide and for the details on the 2 secret achievements with the Brutes and Slug Boss. Never knew Brute's could shoot pods at you, but never tried to keep them alive long enough too.

brutes shot if you cut off their back legs and stay a distance away. i got catch on chapter 6 but against the brute you run into before the leviathan.

Great Game... The only problem is "IT'S GOT (EA) STAMPED ON IT".

And with the way (EA) are going "Downhill FAST" It worry's my that Great games like this will suffer even more. I say this because when I look at games I don't have and would like to play "I LOOK FOR THE (EA) LOGO" If it's got one I will not get it new no matter what it is "ME3 included".
If I do get an (EA) game it will be from the very reduced section as I have no love or support for the company,:rant::chair end of.

Niiice, thanks for the guide! Pretty much used it as a reminder for stuff to do during gameplay, put up several tabs of this and removed one for each cheevo done. Doesn't really sound like much, but when you are hunting for several cheevos at once, it really does help. Not that I needed this guide to play through the game since playing 3 times beforehand, but some stuff clearly got past me, like doing a plasma cutter run. Did the Kills with several weapons cheevos on the same run, saving at a good point and grinded remaining kills with specific weapons over and over. Other than, the All Upgrades cheevo gave me some trouble. But voila, game completed! So thanks for the great overview on this guide, went a long way to not initiating a 5th run lol.

Now onwards to DS2, eventually... :p
