Didn't see one so id thought id start one Please no one complain that theres not alot here. Instead of moaning please help out. This is only a work in Process.

When i describe missions it is the mission number in the game stats. (main missions unless stated)

Warning: This guide may well contain spoilers, ill try to keep them down as much as can but not always possible.

Introduction

This game as a total of 49 achievements with a score of 1000GS. All achievements can be gotten in one play through if you dont get any glitches and if you make sure you do everything in the North before going into the south, and making sure you finished everything before the last mission. 14 achievements you are only able to get through online play. All others need to be collected in story mode.

Summary
Achievement Summary

- Estimated achievement difficulty:6/10
- Offline: 34 (640)
- Online: 14 (340)
- Approximate time for 1000 GS: 100 - 130 hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed for completion: 1
- Number of missable achievements: 19
- Glitched achievements: Yes
- Do cheat codes disable achievements: No cheat codes available

No matter how good you are at games this will take you a long time to do as the online achievements can take an age to collect. Mainly the ranking up to level 30 (Warlord) and upgrading all weapons (Soldier of Misfortune) are the two that take the time.

Glitches

Where to start there are quite a few glitches in this game but the main one which courses people to miss between 3-5 achievements is the Cell Tower missions. This is because when doing a cell tower mission you have to kill a selected target. This target however some times gets away but you still get a mission complete. This means you don't not get the correct number of Diamond you should have so this causes you to miss all diamond and cell tower related achievements.

How to fix this.

When doing a cell tower mission be sure to save before starting the mission. Make sure you get the diamonds when finishing this mission if you do not get the diamonds. Reload your save and try again.

Playthrough One.

You can get all the achievements in one playthrough as long as you get them in the correct order and get the north achievements before heading to the south.

This is the order that i would try to do things before moving on with missions.

North
1. Find all save houses in the North
2. Hit all weapons convoys
3. Save all Buddies in the North
4. Find all Diamonds (can do them all at once at the end but its easier)
5. Find all Jackal Logs (can do them all at once at the end but its easier)
6. Do all the Cell Tower Missions. (Make sure to get diamonds)
7. Start the story missions (Make sure you subvert all missions and do 1 mission for both sides)

South
1. Find all save houses in the South
2. Hit all weapons convoys
3. Save all Buddies in the South
4. Find all Diamonds (can do them all at once at the end but its easier)
5. Find all Jackal Logs (can do them all at once at the end but its easier)
6. Do all the Cell Tower Missions. (Make sure to get diamonds)
7. Start the story missions (Make sure you subvert all missions and do 1 mission for both sides) Also save before the last mission if your unsure when that it save around 90% and get all achievements that you may have missed. You cant go back.

Make sure to save before finishing the game. YOU CANT GO BACK TO FINISH THINGS YOU HAVE MISSED!!

"Story Related"

After the cut scene at the the start of the game you need to try and escape from the town. The quickest and easiest way to get this is to die. You then get picked up and driven out of town.

Escape torture at the old slave outpost.

"Story Related"

Whilst in the Southern District, either the APR or the UFLL (UFLL for me) will offer you a mission which is the easiest, as of late. They will ask you to take a Letter to a man, and collect the diamonds while you're there. Whilst leaving the HQ, one of your Buddies will ask you to bring the Diamonds with you to the Airport to meet him.
I slowly sneaked into the village where your target man is. Things were extremely calm, though. I don't you'll be shot on sight, if anyone is there. Close to the building the man is in, is a Fire. I didnt create this, so I'm gathering something has gone down here. The following scene suggests this.

You go up the Ladder to find your Man dead on the floor. Your Objective is completed, and the new assignment is to take the Briefcase of Diamonds. That's simple, they're in front of you. As you pick up the briefcase, a knife flies up in front of you. It's The Jackal. You're third encounter has begun. He has his knife up to your throat. He seems a lot less friendly than your last encounter with him. He recognises you, and he harps on about the Factions merging, and how people will think You have killed this man. He takes your Diamond Briefcase, and before leaving, he kicks you in the face to knock you out.

You wake up in a Prison cell. A man calls for you, and tells you to come to the Wall (to your right of the cell door). He talks to you about the Factions. Shortly after, a Prison Guard starts harrassing him, and takes him away. You'll notice the Wall has many cracks within it. It's weak. Take a step back, and you'll be able to press Y to kick the Wall in. As you climb through, you find a Machete and a pot of Tablets for your Malaria. There's a Save Box on the Wall. The Cell Door has been left open, so you can escape. Travel through some empty corridors and you'll go up some stairs. To your Left down that Tunnel is an open area in the Prison, which will be full of Mercenaries. From this view you can see that it looks very much like the Fort, or Last Bastion. Up ahead is an Open Gate. This is the simplest way out. You have your map, which shows you a target you need to reach to have fully escaped the Prison. It's just up the road, but watch for Mercenaries and vehicles. Stick to the vegetation on the Left of the road and you should be fine. Once you reach the destination point, you're free. Crouching is important in that part. Or else you could make your life alot worse.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/592/s998.jpgLast man standing 30
Wipe out the senior leadership of both Factions and determine who will be the new Warlords.

Resolve your conflict with the Jackal to facilitate the exodus.

"Story Related"

After tackling the Heart of Darkness, and completing both of The Jackal's original missions (to achieve the Diamonds from the Landing Zone, and kill both Faction Warlords), you will be ordered to rendezvous at The Jackal's Hut. Here, The Jackal gives you a debrief on the next Mission. You can either take a Car Battery to activate a Bomb. This results in your destruction, but the rocks will block the Border of the Country.

Or you can take the Diamonds to the Border, bribe the Post Guards to allow you to leave, and then put a Bullet through your head. The Jackal tells you that you'll both die in the process of killing this War. Once you've completed either of these paths, you'll complete the Story Mode and unlock this achievement.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/592/UP73kbI=.jpgDown but not out 10
Escape to Bowa-Seko - the Southern Territory.

"Story related"

After you have picked the Church or your buddies in the final mission of the North Territory. You will have to do one mission in the desert. When this is done you are told to meet Voorheer in Sefapane. Which is in the South Territory you will then get this achievement.

Turn over all of the Jackal's audio logs to the Journalist

It might be helpful to note that there are actually 9 tapes in the North, one is automatically given to you. The numbering is a bit off and can mislead a few people causing confusion. This should be added to the guide for future reference.

North
1 00. Infamy
2 01. Smuggling
3 02. Circulation
4 03. Economics
5 04. Home
6 05. Rat-Catcher
7 06. Career Counseling
8 07. Stability
9 08. The Humanist

South
10 09. Stealing Boots
11 10. Gluten-Free
12 11. Necessary Evil
13 12. Lion's Share
14 13. Unrecognizable
15 14. Gutshot
16 15. No Sense
17 16. Numbers

Due to a patch that was released for the Save glitch in Far Cry 2, it causes the Jackal Tapes to not appear in the menu after you've collected Stealing Boots. Once you've collected all tapes in the North and then travel South, the only tape you will hear is 09. Stealing Boots. If you check under the Jackal Tapes section of the menu, you won't see any tapes past this point. Not to worry though! The game still keeps track of all the tapes you've collected. Make sure you mark the tapes off in the South as you collect them. Once you're sure you've collected all the tapes, either head to the Marina bar in the South or back to Mike's bar in the North. The journalist will be waiting for you at either location.

Create a map and get it validated in all game modes

Start the map editor. Once you're in, hit the Start button and go to "Validation". Look under each game type, there will be a list of things you need on your map with check boxes. Add the things you need, working your way though until you get all check boxes checked. If you see any under "Map" that are blank and say something isn't clear, it means you put that thing in a place it can't be, ie spawn point. Once all boxes are checked, Save your map and the achievement is yours.

Download and rate 25 usermaps

From the Main Menu go to "Map Community" then "Download New Maps". Download 25 different maps. Once done, go back to the Main Menu and to "Multiplayer" then "Player Match" the "Create Match" then highlight "Map Cycle" and hit A. Add the first 15 of the 25 maps you downloaded into the cycle by highlighting them and pressing A (you can only add up to 15 at a time). Set "Private Slot" to the same number as "Maximum Players" is set at. Then "Launch Match". Select "Force Launch" when available or "Ready". Once the map loads, check it out a little, then hit Start and go to "Cancel Match".
On the Summary screen, notice it says to hit Y to rate. So hit Y and give your rating. Once the Lobby comes back up you'll be on the next map in line. Repeat. Took me about an hour, maybe an hour and a half.



Some Extra Tips that might help.


1. Buddies go missing for no reason(story related)

2. Buddies can all live and all die it doesn't matter for the achievements as long as you once during the game find all of them, and of course subvert 12 missions 6 south 6 north

3. You guys may think that the game is kinda confusing but all your questions will be answered at the end of the story

4.If you used morphine on your buddy 3 times and it didn't work...its because he or she got wounded twice.....the first time they fall u can save them....the second you cant!!

5. You can only do underground missions when you are close to running out of pills....you only get close to running out of pills when you do story related missions....so if you wanna get diamonds, tapes and other things not related to story dont worry....malaria wont bother you!!

6. Try to do all non-story related achievements when you reach exactly 73% of story....if you do a story mission from there....you wont be able to go back to cell phone tower and other side missions!!

Good guide so far(I realize it's a lot of work to do something like this).
But does anyone happen to know if a buddy that is "lost" is gone forever?
I assume that's only if he's actually killed.Is there some way to find a "lost" buddy again?
Because if there isn't I'm pretty much screwed up for the "The third faction" achievement.

Most of the time an achievement guide is a collective project. Someone takes the responsibility on to update and provide as much info as they can, while taking info that others provide, verify it, and insert it. It's a community effort, the OP just decided he'd spend the extra time that others aren't willing to or can't.

We found the easiest way online is the Pitbull map, deathmatch. One of you who is doing the kills gets in the middle where the turret guns (moutned weapons) are. There are 3 possible spawn points for the one who is going to get killed. The watertower, a down left at a hut like strcutre or by the windmill. Get a sniper and headshot your buddy as much as you can 15 XP. There is an ammo crate nearby. When you weapons starts to jam you could give the joy of killing to you buddy. I got around 500-600 XP/ match if you and your buddy get used to it, you'll sure do more and more each round.

yeah thats the first story mission (ie. involving the factions) once you get to the southern territory, as i remember its unavoidable to do anything but that mission first - you have to go and get that mission first because its a red objective to do so

**spoiler alert**
do the mission where you have to get the gold for the UNLL (or whatever theyre called), subvert the mission by taking your buddy up on their request to do things differently. then when you go to the oasis with your buddy as the last part of the mission, go down the hole where the gold is and press back next to the gold as you normally would, then save. now come out of the hole and your buddy shouldve taken a pounding and be on deaths door. if not on deaths door already, let them sweat it out a bit longer than mop up the bad guys(this is an easy mission with it being so early on in the game). go over to her and start the whole heal/kill process by pressing Y and blow her brains out. one achievement. reload the last save, do it all again but this time save her and carry on the game like normal! two achievements

Now I haven't beaten the game yet, but I'm pretty sure some of the achievements that you have red text under can be summarized by "Story related - will obtain while progressing the story."

Once again I may be wrong as I don't have the achievements, but the ones that come to mind:

Down but not out 10
Escape to Bowa-Seko - the Southern Territory.

Dawa ya moto ni moto 20
Break the ceasefire and reignite the conflict.

Prison escape 20
Escape torture at the old slave outpost.

Last man standing 30
Wipe out the senior leadership of both Factions and determine who will be the new Warlords.

Heart of Darkness 40
Enter the Heart of Darkness.

The horror... the horror... 40
Resolve your conflict with the Jackal to facilitate the exodus.

Now it says that I left all my buddies, and I guess the quests for undercover taken from church are gone. Did I screw uo carrying up with the story?

I messed out too, the missions suported by buddies, the alternative way to do. The guy keeps diying in the end, and I can't rez him. He dies all the time...

So, did I missed the achivs for the undercover and buddies? :(

I don't know about the buddy achievement but I can confirm that the underground achievement will still unlock.
I too chose to save my buddies but they all died.
I think it's unavoidable that nobody but you survives the end of act 1.
Nevertheless,I got the Courier achievement rather suprising after completing 5 of the underground missions(some in the north,some in the south), only going after them when I needed more medicine.
I'm not sure if that was a glitch,but that's what happened to me.

Now I completed the game but I still don't know what exactly the "The third Faction" Achievement requires you to do.
Do all the buddy sidemissions?
Avoid that anyone of them dies?
Just save them were they are originally being held captive?
Has anyone unlocked this and can explain what he did?

Thanks for the guide, I have a question regarding the scouting of the outpost. In some outposts It's real easy to scout, whether using the monocular or finding the explosives or medkits, but others are real tough, like I kill everyone and walk around for a good 5 - 7 minutes before the scouting unlocks. Does anyone know what is the best and most effective way of scouting the outpost?

NukeDukem
10-29-2008, 02:33 AM
you just have to know what to look for, i havent had any problems. its either an explosives, molotov or ammunition cache like you have in your 'gun room' at the arms dealers, which are easy enough to spot as they will have three flashing items, on top of some crates. (although if you use a lot of explosives clearing out the outpost, you could destroy the supplies... you can still get the scouting acknowledgement by going to where they were, but finding that could be harder if you didnt see where they were beforehand.) it can also be, and maybe you didnt know this as it didnt occur to me straightaway either, a large med pack cabinet on a wall like you see a lot in the game. not to sound arsey but i never use the monocular thing its usually pretty easy to find these things if you have a good look after clearing out the enemies because most of the outposts are really small.

something thats puzzling me, i never got the achievement for doing all the underground missions in the northern territory but i did them whenever the game asked me to.. :(

DirtyMcHater
10-29-2008, 03:49 AM
Thanks for answering. Idk why but there are times when I can unlock it real quick and others where it takes longer... Even after I pick up the meds or explosives.. I've also found some that don't have any meds or explosive, that one unlocked by me just walking around the outpost for a bit.

Regarding your question about the underground missions sorry, but I have no ideal.



Ruthless 30
Subvert all the main faction missions in Leboa-Sako - the Northern Territory.

You get this when you to the "Secondary Option" on every mission you can. When I say "Secondary Option" I mean when you get a mission and you get an option of doing it in a different way than the way you were asked eg. Go to a different location first and kill someone else before you kill main guy.

@ OP, When you mean secondary you mean the mission your buddy asks you to do right?

You can destroy ammo caches and the like, sometimes in the heat of battle these things get blown up, you just have to wander around untill you find the location the cache was before it exploded, look for burnt areas and scorch marks.

When you find the area where the cache was, just stand on it and it will say outpost scouted.

And i can confirm that if you need to choise between saving the church or trying to save your buddies and the die trying it, you'll stil get the achievement if you managed to save them all from there respective predicaments.

Now I haven't beaten the game yet, but I'm pretty sure some of the achievements that you have red text under can be summarized by "Story related - will obtain while progressing the story."

Once again I may be wrong as I don't have the achievements, but the ones that come to mind:

Down but not out 10
Escape to Bowa-Seko - the Southern Territory.

Dawa ya moto ni moto 20
Break the ceasefire and reignite the conflict.

Prison escape 20
Escape torture at the old slave outpost.

Last man standing 30
Wipe out the senior leadership of both Factions and determine who will be the new Warlords.

Heart of Darkness 40
Enter the Heart of Darkness.

The horror... the horror... 40
Resolve your conflict with the Jackal to facilitate the exodus.



Only suggesting just to clean up the guide a bit. Hope you found this advice helpful.

I completed the game yesterday and can confirm that these achievements are story related and cannot be missed out.
Heart of Darkness 40
Enter the Heart of Darkness.

The horror... the horror... 40
Resolve your conflict with the Jackal to facilitate the exodus

these two you can only get at the very end of the game.
Just a word of advice, complete all of the cell tower missons, collect all diamond and tapes, find all safe houses and buddies before atttempting the last mission as wonce you enter the heart of darkness theres no going back. You would have to re-load a previouse save.

I found a buddy just by wandering into some outpust. He was been held captive and i unlocked him by just opening the door but i can't remember where i found him and it wasn't on a mission

Also on the 16 map achievement you have band balasted down as a map. I think it should be sand blasted instead.

I'm having some trouble with the "Adventurer" Achievement.
I downloaded 25 maps,put 15 in a cycle and rated each of them,put the remaining 10 in a cycle and rated them,but still no achievement.
When I'm prompted to choose the amount of stars for the rating should I hit A to submit or Y to report?I'm sure they are all different because you can't download the same map twice.

10-29-2008, 04:28 PM
When you quit out of the map you hit Y to bring up the rating, then A to submit. I did and it took 26-27 maps, I may have missed one, but I had to download a couple more and rate them.

After completing the tutorial there's 2 buddies you can go unlock right away, (there's actually 3 tutorial missions, you only get 1 and it's assigned by where you Escape from the city).
You'll find a buddy in the Lumber Camp, in the Slaughter House, and at the Cock-Fights. These can be unlocked at any point after the Tutorial mission.
Just go to the locations you didn't get sent to on the mission, clear it out, and look for a room with a save point and a locked door. When you enter you'll hear your new buddy asking for help. Open the door.
There's also a buddy in the North section of Leboa-Sako. North of Shwasana, at a plane wreck here:

Yes, whenever you're doing a buddy mission, or your buddy saves your, or you subvert a main mission. Make sure you save before though, since there's an achievement for saving all your buddies so you don't wanna lose one.

Do I get a warning when I'm running low on pills or do I just run out? All I've been doing in the game is gathering diamonds and Jackal tapes. I acquired all my buddies, did one main mission, and got all the diamonds/Jackal tapes in 5/9 sectors of the North. These diamonds take forever. I can't wait till I have them all and can play the game. (I usually go on these collection quests at the end, but since the diamonds are used to buy guns and such, I decided to do it first off, this way too I'll be less likely to give up on finding them all).

When you're running out on pills you see your characters looks at the container right after you take the last one.. This would be a good time to go and do underground missions and get a refill. You'll have enough time to do the mission but you must hurry.

Comfort a Buddy and ease his passing.

Make sure to save before you do this if your wanting to keep all your buddies and i would advice you to.

Do the mission where you have to get the gold for the UNLL (or whatever theyre called), subvert the mission by taking your buddy up on their request to do things differently. then when you go to the oasis with your buddy as the last part of the mission, go down the hole where the gold is and press back next to the gold as you normally would, then save. now come out of the hole and your buddy shouldve taken a pounding and be on deaths door. if not on deaths door already, let them sweat it out a bit longer than mop up the bad guys(this is an easy mission with it being so early on in the game). go over to her and start the whole heal/kill process by pressing Y and blow her brains out. one achievement. reload the last save, do it all again but this time save her and carry on the game like normal! two achievements

Ok, how do you save by pressing <back? I don't find a save option.. :/

DemonI81
10-29-2008, 07:00 PM
Do a main mission. Subvert it by getting the call from a buddy and going to his/her location. They'll be at a safe house. Save there after talking to them then go and do it. Reload save, complete mission as normal.

NukeDukem
10-29-2008, 07:50 PM
sorry if it was confusing, but i didnt mean either of those things! when you get to the oasis, go straight down the hole to the gold. when you approach the gold you will get prompted to press the back button, do it and then the game will ask if you want to save. then all you have to do is come out of the hole, put your buddy out of her misery, reload the save down by the gold, come out of the hole and save her life.

edit: oh and DemonI81, i think you get the optional objective to get more medicine on the second to last pill, not the actual last pill. so keep checking the pause menu if you think youre running out. ive got the achievement for doing all the underground missions, i think i did 3 in the north and 2 in the south. as for this Third Faction achievement, did someone say they got it after choosing to save their buddies at the end of the nortern campaign? so the buddies in the south dont count towards the achievement?

I dont think you do have to go through the whole game again as long as youve done there missions i think its ok. I hope so anyway as one of my buddies died without me relising and i saved the game, and im not playing through the whole game again.

youre only forced to go there when you run out of pills.. and the missions arent there when you have more than 1 pill left in your container. just do the missions everytime they come up and you should get the achievement, thats all i did. it might actually be impossible to miss this achievement, im not sure. maybe if you go through the story missions really quickly you could miss them but idk.

Damn sucks to hear about that malicious RROD. Regarding the missing buddy, I really don't know wth happened, since Warren Clyde is never the one to come save me, It's always the other dude, I forget his name, the one with the towel on his head LOL. I do remember the first time I went to Mikes bar he was talking about taking on a bunch of people by himself and whatnot, could it be that I was suppose to help him and didn't?

DirtyMcHater
10-30-2008, 12:56 AM
As long as you have done that buddies missions i dont think there is any achievments to be missed

I think if you're done with the buddy's mission it would have a check mark next to it's name. The one who's missing has a red line across his name. So far I have 3 buddies, Quarbani Singh, Michele Dachss and Warren Clyde, on the first 2 the status is 'Alive' and on the last one the status is 'Missing' :/

Also, I'm now doing the 3rd mission for the UFLL ( I think) The one you get from the guy at the door and not the two upstairs. Usually every time I went on a mission I would have a buddy call me for the side quest or w/e. I'm this mission now and no-one has called me, is it supposed to be like that?

Another question, Am I really suppose to only have 3 buddies? I'm by 20 percent of the game and only have 3. I've been playing for about 9 hours though :/

Edit : DukeNukem, yes, this game is indeed frustrating and confusing.

Alright 2 questions.

1. Has anyone got the "Subvert all main missions for the Leboa-Seko area, the first area"? Because i'm now on the 2nd part of the game and i subverted all the missions i could and it didn't unlock for me

2. One of my buddies the paul guy, he went down in a battle and i tried to save him, i shot him 3 times with syrettes to try and save him but he died anyways, i saved while he was down after completing a mission or whatever, figuring i could save him but he still died. I ended up just reloading my save and abandoning him because it wouldn't let me revive him..., so it said he was "missing" but not dead. Is that going to affect any achievements? Oh and then the mission where you have to save the church or help your buddies at mike's bar, i went to mike's bar and all my buddies died, as well as me. I know you can die and continue on but wtf are you really suppose to keep them all alive, they all drop like flies. What a confusing game

I get there and I take out about 4 - 5 people outside, I then go inside and helped the guy with the refrigerator and bang! Windows brake they start shooting everyone, I see one of my buddies fall so I go and try to revive him and died :/

By the time I wake up I am in this fking truck in the middle of a sandstorm, I fall off the truck and now I have to make to a shelter.. Well I tried opening the map and of course it doesn't work and I have no idea where I'm going.

I finally collapse and wake up in some fking type of house, hut, idk (it's that supposed to be a shelter?) What's this the way it was supposed to happened? Now The only 3 buddies I had are all dead :/ WTF?!? Did I do something wrong? Did I all of the sudden devide by ZERO? Should I restart one of my saves?.. OMFG... This is hectic. :/

i finished the game yesterday and realized after looking at this thread, that i did alot of crap....so i kinda gave up on achivements....for the first time in one of my games!(except that shit GRAW) anyway.....I can help u guys with yours!!

NO SPOILERS!!

1-buddies go missing for no reason(story related)

2-the buddies can all live....all die....it doesnt matter for the achievements as long as you once during the game find all of them, and of course subvert 12 missions 6 south 6 north

3-you guys may think that the game is kinda confusing but all your questions will be awnsered at the end of the story

4-if you used mmorphine on your buddy 3 times and it didnt work...its because he or she got wounded twice.....the first time they fall u can save them....the second you cant!!

5-you can only do underground missions when you are close to running out of pills....you only get close to running out of pills when you do story related missions....so if you wanna get diamonds, tapes and other things not related to story dont worry....malaria wont bother you!!

6-try to do all non-story related achievements when you reach exacly 73% of story....if you do a story mission from there....you wont be able to go back to cellphone tower and other side missions!!

well i hope this helps!!

Some things I'd like to add.Sorry if any of this has already been mentioned.

"Investigative Reporter"/"Pullitzer Material"
There are 17 of the Jackal Tapes overall,you only have to find 16,the first one(numbered 00) will be given to you when you reach Mike's for the first time.
Their locations can be found on the maps where the diamond locations are.
(8 in the south,8 in the north)

"Messenger Achievement :
Since you can only do underground missions when you're running low on pills and that only happens while completing story missions,the Achievement will propably unlock once you have done enough to reach the end of the game without running out of pills, or in other words when you won't need any more until finishing the game(and I think that's about 5).

"The third faction"
I can confirm that you only need to rescue them from where they are being held captive in the first place(11 total).
They don't need to survive(which is even unavoidable at one point in the game) and you don't need to do any of the misions they give you.
Buddies :
6 in the North :
-The first on you free during the tutorial.
-2 others will be added automatically
-You can free another one either at the Lumber camp,the Slaughter House or the Cock Fights.Go to the location you haven't been to during the Tutorial.
-One more is near a downed plane at the locaion that was posted earlier in this thread
-The last one you will free at fresh fish,after you have been told about that by one of the doormen in pala.

5 in the south:
-the first one will be the captain of the boat you escort to Port Selao.
-The second one is the one you meet at the clinic during the "Introduction to the south"
-A third one will join automatically
-another one is locked up at the Brewery in the very south of the area
-The final buddy you'll come across while proceeding through the story,again one of the doormen will hint you at that.

This one is at Sediko. This one and the one at the Brewery can be obtained as soon as the intro missions are over. I just got to the south, did the intro missions (the first 3 join you during these missions) and the first thing I did was went and got these 2 buddies. Achievement unlocked. I even let one die early in the north.

EDIT: Sediko is in the North Sector (middle/north most square). Brewery is in the South Sector (middle/south most square).

im stuck with getting this one diamond on the south map. When you enter the central 1sqk map (where the town is where the main missions are) the diamond is on a rock on the river. I think you haveto use the handglider that is around the rivers bend on the otherside of the big hill (mountain thingy). Is this how you are suposed to get the diamond or is there an easier way?

I hope its clear enough for you to know which one im on about but i dont know how to add a pic of the diamonds location to the message so if someone could tell me how to do that as well it would be realy helpful.

Ok,so you can get them anytime.I thought this only works once you are being told about them.
I must admit I haven't played the game many different times,only twice.
And I think now it's official that whether you're buddies are dead or alive doesn't matter as long as you have a total of 11.

And a little question about the "Safari Tour" Achievement :
Do you have to play all maps in the same game mode,or even every map in every game mode?
Since I have completed one game on each map and didn't get the achievement.

Nope, you can get them as soon as you want. Just like the 3 in the North, (plane wreck, and 2 locked up).

No idea. I've been reading that the online achievements seem to be even more buggy than the single player ones.

For the buddy at Sediko,I've finished the intro missions and have unlocked the convoy,radio mast missions etc but when I went and cleared out Sediko,there is no buddy there.I "think" I can see the hut he/she is kept in by the slide lock on the front but it is not openable and there is no person inside.Do I need to do a few more missions? This is my last buddy and I'll scream if I can't rescue them for some reason.

The hut is in the back, it's a big one on top of a hill. When you go in you can not use weapons, this is how you'll know you're in the right hut. Once in, there's a ladder to climb up. Open the door up there and there's your buddy.
(I missed the ladder, wandered around for 20 mins going "WTF!!!!" then found it.)

I've got 23 hours in, 50% done and 400somethingGS. So, long. Hard, no. Annoying, yes. The entire game is annoying. It felt like it should've been over after the North section, now all the same crap all over again in the South, but more mountains and stuff blocking you from taking short cuts, actually forcing you to drive further than you'd have to by far in a lot of parts, more people driving around shooting me.
I'm beginning to dislike this game.

Enter every 1 square kilometer map region of the world.

This is just entering each Sector. There's 19 in all, 9 in the North, 9 in the South, and the 1 middle one. I just got it after entering the final sector I hadn't been to.

For the Southern buddies, #5 is in Sediko. This buddy can also be gotten without being told to. According to the strategy guide, you're not always sent after the buddies the UFLL or APR send you for. To be safe it's best to go without being told for the final 3 in the North and the final 2 in the South.

You can do them all from 1 or go to different ones. Doesn't matter. It's the same with the Cell Tower missions.

As this game is one big, repetitive glitch, it probably is.
I had a guy inside a boulder shooting out at me earlier. I couldn't kill him.
A guy in Sediko started shooting a Mac 10 at me and continued to do so for, literally, I swear I'm totally serious, 5 mins. I sat in a building where I could see him and he was just aiming at the building firing non-stop for 5 mins. Then I killed him.
So many other things too.... Oh well, 2-3 days and I'll be totally done with the single player. I doubt I'll really play online. Fallout 3 is sitting here waiting for me and I've got GoW2 and CoD:WaW both preordered and paid off.

I am trying to get this achievement and the one where you have to subvert the factions. If I accept the factions missions so they give me the diamonds will it still count if I accepted the buddies idea also? (If I take the factions diamonds and then do buddies idea to subvert it?)

Subvert all the main faction missions in Bowa-Seko - the Southern Territory

You get this when you to the "Secondary Option" on every mission you can. When I say "Secondary Option" I mean when you get a mission and you get an option of doing it in a different way than the way you were asked eg. Go to a different location first and kill someone else before you kill main guy.

Hey, I have done the Ruthless achievement for the first territory, and I am now on 73% and 24/33. I did do one mission without doing the "Secondary Option" first. Are there anymore missions that I can do before the end that will get it or do I have to play the whole game again?

Not sure if this has happened to anyone yet, while doing the mission where you escape the prison I unlocked 2 achievements 1 for the prison escape and 1 for the convoy.

Something I found kind of amusing I have only done 1 weapons mission where I have had to destroy the convoy in the game and I got the achievement when I killed 2 guys in a jeep and took all there weapons. Seems that the achievements in this game are pretty messed up anyhow seeing as other people have said that there achievements aren't unlocking.

I think I also got the weapons specialist without having to get the manuals and the guns which go together. Either way, if you haven't done the convoy missions for the arms dealers and your close to the prison mission you may unlock this achievement as well but I can't confirm it will happen as I am still on my first play though of the game. Shame this game is a little boring traveling around I think I would enjoy it a lot more if it was linear sad as it sounds.

Also this guide is great thanks for the helpful information :)

Do you need to do the Buddy Side Missions for the 3rd Faction or do you just get them on your buddy list when you pause the game? Because I have all 6 of the North people but I really don't want to do their all missions.

One other thing, if I do a mission for another faction, can I still go back and do missions for the first faction?

I can confirm pretty much anything. I have all the SP achievements and a few of the MP.
I could try to scan the strategy guide maps, but my scanner's being retarded and I don't think you can use scans in a guide.

EDIT: Scans were posted here (http://farcry2game.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=2666) by someone else. Again, I don't think you can use copyrighted scans though.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/592/+L+Vlg==.jpgWar Party 20
Win a match with 16 players (Ranked Match)

Just play a game mode with 16 players I found that Team Deathmatch is the best as your more likely to get 8 people a side, and if your team wins you get the achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/592/-P2G-A==.jpgSafari Tour 20
Play at least one full round in every Official Map (Ranked Match)

Just play a match on each map listed below.Not sure if you have to play each map on each game type though.

Crude Awacking
Dirty Work
Last Bastion
Pit Bull
Love Shacks
Mud Maze
Cut Bait
Riot Control
Coup D'Etat
Rumber Strip
Rusty Beef
Far Cry
Clear Cut
Sand Blasted

War Party: I've won a few matches, TDM, with 16 people and never gotten the achievement. I think it's only for DM.

Safari Tour: Easiest way (I just got it) is to go to Ranked match. Create Match. Set it on whatever, I used DM, and add all the maps in the playlist you haven't played. Let the room fill up to desired amount of people and start the match. After the match you'll be put back into the waiting phase with the next map in your rotation up. Keep playing until you've played them all.
You must play the complete round. The achievement unlocks AFTER the round on the last map you need.

8 in the north and 8 in the south. You'll end up with 17 total though because of the 1 that you get when you meet the reporter.

The crash site one, look around there's a glider on a cliff around there.
The other one I can't remember, I don't believe I had to use a glider.

Do you need to collect all the diamonds in order to buy the weapons and upgrades to get the weapons specialist achievement? Or will you have enough diamonds from the story and side misisons?

A Satyr
11-07-2008, 07:34 PM
It takes alooot of diamonds. I would say you need at least 700 so finding some diamonds is essential... Also you would have to not buy vehicle manuals, camo, syrettes, the grenade and pyro bandoliers dont count for all weapons either.

Well, you can get 1000 diamonds in total. That's when you've found all the diamond briefcases and have gotten your last payment (right after you start the last main story mission). So it's not a really bad thing if you buy other stuff too.

And another thing that I find annoying online is when I try to get the War Party Achievement (Win a ranked match with 16 people) is that half way the match always 1 or 2 players leave. I've played so many starting with 16 players, but finished it with only 12 or 13 players.

Edit: For some reason I can't open the diamond location maps anymore (The ones on page #1 in the guide). It probably has something to do with photobucket, because I get this picture:

Speaking of those maps, there is a big problem with the southern map.

In the center section, the casual observer would note only 11 diamonds. However, in game, the map says 12 are available.

Now, if you look closely at the map here on the site (well, is it still down?) then you'll see on the top left corner, in a brown desert like area of map, the 12th diamond, almost completely cut off from the map.

Hope that helps some people.

Also, when I did Safari Tour I just used DM, but a couple maps I had played already, and didn't replay, on other modes so they don't have to be all on the same mode.

This is the WORST Achievement Guide for any game I have ever played...

First off the links you provided are broken and, only show a photo bucket picture saying bandwidth exceeded.

Secondly your descriptions on obtaining the achievements are vague, misleading or incorrect.

For example; for the 'Utility Man' Achievement, you wrote "There are 6 cell towers in total." which first off is wrong, there are at least 4 towers in the North Territory and another 4 in the South Territory, what you should have written was that 'you need to complete 6 Cell Tower missions in the North Territory, and 6 in the South Territory, for a total of 12 mission during the game', the way you phrased it, is just completely misleading, and caused myself and several others whom I've talked with to miss out on the 30 GS, unless of course we want to play another play through. "Canít Wait"

Also you have no info at all on the Jackal tapes, and even worst you donít even state where the journalist can be found to give them to, not that it's hard to find him, but for a non experienced player DETAILS are everything when it comes to achievements in a SANDBOX game such as FAR CRY 2.

Also, for the "Last Man Standing" achievement you wrote, "Think this is story related and cannot me missed" You THINK, come on man are you serious, how do you think that looks when someone is reading this and they see that? Theyíre wondering if they will miss it or not. From what I experienced, I got the Achievement after I had subverted 2 missions back to back around 84%. During which when subverted leads you to the cease fire area where the faction leaders are found...

Again for the "Prison Escape" Achievement you wrote once again,"Think this is story related and cannot me missed"

PLEASE BRO BEFORE YOU POST A GUIDE TRY TO HAVE SOME STANDARDS, I RESPECT YOU AS A GAMER AND AS AN X360A MEMBER, BUT THIS IS A FIRST CLASS WEBSITE DEDICATED TOWARDS ACHIEVEMENTS, AND THIS GUIDE IS JUST NOT FIRST CLASS, SORRY IF IM RANTING AND WILL UNDERSTAND IF THIS GETS DELEATED, HOWEVER, SEVERAL GAMERS THAT I HAVE SPOKEN WITH OVER XBOX LIVE FELL THAT THIS GUIDE WAS NOT ALL THAT HELPFUL, AS DO I.

Overall Iím disappointed, this guide is not a GOOD representation of the website or the GAME itself, I myself love this website and 99% of the time find it answering the questions I have, also the game itself was very enjoyable minus the excessive driving time it took to get places/waiting for a load screen if you choose to travel by bus.

I agree im still confused about some areas of the game that are not really talked about in the guide. I don't want to play through this game twice so have to check different sites to double check the achievements and how to obtain them.

My rant was long, however only took a few minutes, but the fact is that this guide is not even a work in progress, its incomplete, when it comes to the story line missions, the online one are common sense, but in FAR CRY 2 there are points after certain missions you can never go back, and the only warning we got was to save before the end of the game, but w/e I’m done with the game and on to Quantum of Solace, which actually has a great guide for it, and has a great online multiplayer.

If the person who wrote the guide really wanted to improve it, he/she should take some of the suggestions we gave and complete the guide to the furthest extent capable...

From the Main Menu go to "Map Community" then "Download New Maps". Download 25 different maps. Once done, go back to the Main Menu and to "Multiplayer" then "Player Match" the "Create Match" then highlight "Map Cycle" and hit A. Add the first 15 of the 25 maps you downloaded into the cycle by highlighting them and pressing A (you can only add up to 15 at a time). Set "Private Slot" to the same number as "Maximum Players" is set at. Then "Launch Match". Select "Force Launch" when available or "Ready". Once the map loads, check it out a little, then hit Start and go to "Cancel Match".
On the Summary screen, notice it says to hit Y to rate. So hit Y and give your rating. Once the Lobby comes back up you'll be on the next map in line. Repeat. Took me about an hour, maybe an hour and a half.

I cant help my bandwidth has been exceeded, ive asked people to post some maps up so people can use them in the mean time. Jackal tapes are on the diamond maps if people cared to look ive asked people if they have any better maps with no response. Yes its need a but more detail and ive said that on many occasions. All you had to do was tell me the mistakes and I would change them. Ive been reading nearly all the posts posted in here and adding things that are needed. I dont see many mistake on here ive aksed few people you have finished the game and they said it all fine.

For example; "I can confirm pretty much anything. I have all the SP achievements and a few of the MP"

I don't know what this kid's problem with the guide is. I think he's just pissed that he didn't get to write one or that the game sucks. Either way, it all looks like proper info to me. Check spelling in a couple places but other than that, a few additions where you stated you need them and that's it.

A lot of people have been on this site lately, newer people, ranting and bitching about everything. It's really getting irritating, especially since not a single one have anything useful to contribute.
Seriously Crusty, if all you've got to say is bitching, GTFO. Ask a question if you don't understand something. Provide info if you think something is wrong or could be written better. the_b1ues has been updating whenever people offer new info or suggestions for improvement. You've done none of that, only bitched.
Contribute, be polite, shut up, or get out.

Dunno if anyone mentioned this, but in my save. I rescued the guy at the Brewery soon after I completed the first mission in the south. Once I got that done I went Diamon/Tape hunting. I moved from the Bar to the left, saw the brewery, freed him and got my Trophy/Achievement. I'm on the PS3 version but maybe someone should clarify (especially since I'm using 360 based Guides) that you only need to rescuse non-story related buddies to get the 'Third Faction' Achievement.

If that's the mission you are forced to do, just do it. You can't subvert it.

11-17-2008, 10:20 PM
by the mission your forced to do do you mean the one to assasinate the other faction leader in the north territory or the actuall first mission you have to do in the south which is directly after that which i guess you could say is also forced

Involves a boat... and weapons. Until you get the Break Ceasefire Achievement I naturally assume you can't subvert anything.

God dam it I didn't realize there was 'subvert every mission achievements'. Oh well its an amazing game I wouldn't mind doing it twice... although at 40 hours long thats a pain.

The third faction 30 is not explained good.. You can also save a buddy from ''Fresh Fish'' place.

If that's the diamond on a huge rock then put a car at the west side of the rock. Get on the car and sprint + jump on the rock. Keep trying and you'll get on it.

Hey, I'm like 70%-80% through the Story Mode. I can help you with a few achievements in the guide. Just cut out the unneccessary parts. I hope this helps the Guide.

Prison Escape - 20G
Escape Torture at the Old Slave Outpost

Whilst in the Southern District, either the APR or the UFLL (UFLL for me) will offer you a mission which is the easiest, as of late. They will ask you to take a Letter to a man, and collect the diamonds while you're there. Whilst leaving the HQ, one of your Buddies will ask you to bring the Diamonds with you to the Airport to meet him.

I slowly sneaked into the village where your target man is. Things were extremely calm, though. I don't you'll be shot on sight, if anyone is there. Close to the building the man is in, is a Fire. I didnt create this, so I'm gathering something has gone down here. The following scene suggests this.

You go up the Ladder to find your Man dead on the floor. Your Objective is completed, and the new assignment is to take the Briefcase of Diamonds. That's simple, they're in front of you. As you pick up the briefcase, a knife flies up in front of you. It's The Jackal. You're third encounter has begun. He has his knife up to your throat. He seems a lot less friendly than your last encounter with him. He recognises you, and he harps on about the Factions merging, and how people will think You have killed this man. He takes your Diamond Briefcase, and before leaving, he kicks you in the face to knock you out.

You wake up in a Prison cell. A man calls for you, and tells you to come to the Wall (to your right of the cell door). He talks to you about the Factions. Shortly after, a Prison Guard starts harrassing him, and takes him away. You'll notice the Wall has many cracks within it. It's weak. Take a step back, and you'll be able to press Y to kick the Wall in. As you climb through, you find a Machete and a pot of Tablets for your Malaria. There's a Save Box on the Wall. The Cell Door has been left open, so you can escape. Travel through some empty corridors and you'll go up some stairs. To your Left down that Tunnel is an open area in the Prison, which will be full of Mercenaries. From this view you can see that it looks very much like the Fort, or Last Bastion. Up ahead is an Open Gate. This is the simplest way out. You have your map, which shows you a target you need to reach to have fully escaped the Prison. It's just up the road, but watch for Mercenaries and vehicles. Stick to the vegetation on the Left of the road and you should be fine. Once you reach the destination point, you're free. Crouching is important in that part. Or else you could make your life alot worse.

Heart of Darkness - 40G
Enter the Heart of Darkness

In the final Main Faction Mission, you'll be ordered to go and meet The Jackal at the Prison you previously escaped. After a few words, The Jackal will give you a mission. You have to exit through the back of the Prison, where ammo/health supplies and a Save Box will be available.

Once you exit through the door, and head down the Road, you'll eventually be told that the terrain up ahead is rocky and steep, and there will be no way of returning. This is the Heart of Darkness. Once you go down the first rocky hill, you'll get the achievement. The Heart of Darkness is a long, enclosed valley between two Mountains. It brings the first Sandbox gameplay to Far Cry 2's Story Mode.

The horror... the horror... - 40G
Resolve your conflict with the Jackal to facilitate the exodus

After tackling the Heart of Darkness, and completing both of The Jackal's original missions (to achieve the Diamonds from the Landing Zone, and kill both Faction Warlords), you will be ordered to rendezvous at The Jackal's Hut. Here, The Jackal gives you a debrief on the next Mission. You can either take a Car Battery to activate a Bomb. This results in your destruction, but the rocks will block the Border of the Country.

Or you can take the Diamonds to the Border, bribe the Post Guards to allow you to leave, and then put a Bullet through your head. The Jackal tells you that you'll both die in the process of killing this War. Once you've completed either of these paths, you'll complete the Story Mode and unlock this achievement.

Is it confirmed that you need to save all buddies in order to get the 3rd fraction achievement? I missed the plane crasher in the north and if I go there now, there's just the plane and an stimpack to be found. -.-

Buddy missions don't count for anything? :confused:

Yes.

Nope... well, not really. By doing them you earn upgrades for your safe houses. They do not count towards achievements or story stuff. The Buddy Missions I'm talking about are when you go to the bar and talk to a buddy. Subverting main missions with buddies is a must for 2 achievements.

Thank you!


Also you have no info at all on the Jackal tapes, and even worst you donít even state where the journalist can be found to give them to, not that it's hard to find him, but for a non experienced player DETAILS are everything when it comes to achievements in a SANDBOX game such as FAR CRY 2.


Well... Where is he? :D

the map only seems to show locations of 11 diamonds in the center of the southern district when there is meant to be 12.. Either that or I can't count
