Video Achievement Guide - Posters,Targets,Gold on Hard!
 

You are realistically looking at 3 playthrus of this game.

Your first playthru is going to be on Hard in Solo. This is to get you all the Golds and finish it on Hard. The game is pretty easy up to level 5_1. Then you are going to want to buy a few better weapons to help you out. First you want the Dragon SUV. This is the BOOM weapon. 10 shot, semi-sniper, with a 1 shot kill. Then the SG 12 auto shotty is nice to have. Just remember to taunt after EVERY kill and when everyone is dead to take your time to get all the Posters, Targets, Money, and Explosive options in every area before moving on.

After you finish on Hard you will have 2 more playthrus. 1 as host with a friend to get him all the Co-op achievements and then with your friend hosting to get you all the Co-op achievements. Do this on easy and you can breeze through the game in a couple of hours for each run.

Overall this is a very easy 1000.



http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...ts_upclose.jpg Up Close - 5gs
Performed a counter kill.
You will be told to do one right away in the level. Counter Kills are a great source of points so whenever you are close to an enemy initiate a Counter Kill with the B button. Then hit B each time the shockwave style circle in the screen. Follow up with a Y taunt for mondo points.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/..._gotitdone.jpg Got It Done - 5gs
Successfully completed one scenario.
Scenarios are the tasks at appear in the upper left of the screen. Kill 3 certain enemies in X seconds and the like. They are worth good points so it pays to go for them. You don’t lose points for deaths or speed so go all out.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/..._flyposter.jpg Fly Poster - 15gs
Collected all 5 posters on any level.
There are 5 Posters in each section of every on foot level. Getting all the Posters and all the Targets is the key to getting Gold Medals. Follow the videos and I show you how to find them all in EVERY section.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...etpractice.jpg Target Practice - 15gs
Shot all 5 targets on any level.
There are 5 Targets in each section of every on foot level. Getting all the Posters and all the Targets is the key to getting Gold Medals. Follow the videos and I show you how to find them all in EVERY section.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...s_massacre.jpg Massacre - 10gs
Killed 5 enemies fast enough to score a 5 kill combo.
Using Gangsta Time and reloading at the correct times are the secrets to getting Massacres. Follow the guide and I show you several opportunities to get Massacres. Just go for headshots and quick kills and you’ll get one in no time.

Completed Mission 1.
2 chapter opening mission.


http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/..._hitandrun.jpg Hit and Run - 10gs
Ran over a foot soldier.
On the second mission in the car you would need to try to NOT run over someone. Very easy.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/..._rampingup.jpg Ramping Up - 10gs
Completed a ramp scenario.
There is exactly ONE ramp scenario in the second mission Freeway. Just make sure you hit the ramp square on. You will see a cutscene showing you that you did it properly and of course you will get the achievement. You can reload if you miss it but you will have to do the entire mission over. Which isn’t that long anyway so no big deal.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...getinmycar.jpg Get In My Car - 20gs
Completed Mission 2
Very short 5 minute level with NO posters and NO targets. Just driving.

http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/..._candyshop.jpg Candy Shop - 20gs
Completed Mission 3
There are 3 chapters in Mission 3.



http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...ttothebank.jpg Straight To The Bank - 20gs
Completed Mission 4
There are 5 chapters in Mission 4.

http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...ariomaster.jpg Scenario Master - 20gs
Successfully completed 50 scenarios.
I got this during one of the first chapters in Mission 5. When you get it will depend on how often you complete the scenarios successfully obviously. You can replay the early missions to add to your total if somehow you don’t get this by the end of the game.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...ts_wannabe.jpg Wanna Be - 10gs
Obtained 15 Silver Badges
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...s_hardcore.jpg Hardcore - 50gs
Obtained 15 Gold Badges
By following this guide you will have 15 Gold badges at the end of Mission 5.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...scoinferno.jpg Disco Inferno - 20gs
Completed Mission 5
Mission 5 is going to be the first mission that is actually hard. 5.1 in particular is a beast, especially in regards to getting the Gold medal.




http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...hfromabove.jpg Death From Above - 10gs
Destroyed 50 vehicles and destroyable objects on the flying level without dying.
This will pop in game if you get it. Mine popped before the final helicopter fight. If you don’t get it, just replay the level on easy. Mine did not pop when selecting restarted Chapter in game. I had to go back to the main menu and re-select the mission there.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...sementpark.jpg Amusement Park - 20gs
Completed Mission 6
My suggestion is to get your Gold medal on Hard on your first time through and learn the locations of everything that you can blow up. Then replay on Easy to get your Death From Above. It should pop just before the final helicopter battle.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...unzcomeout.jpg Gunz Come Out - 20gs
Completed Mission 7
7 is where the game gets "fun". Enemies are a lot stronger and cover is harder to come by and they seem to still find a way to get you. First off you are going to want to buy the Dragon SUV sniper whether you have your million yet or not because it is worth every penny. 10 round clip, semi auto (NOT BOLT), and a 1 shot anywhere kill. Beast gun. I also suggest you buy the SG 12 auto shotty. If you start a section with low ammo just quit and do mission select for the chapter you are on. Full ammo!

http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...lstillkill.jpg I’ll Still Kill - 20gs
Completed Mission 8
Mission 8.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...ts_gotpaid.jpg Got Paid - 25gs
Complete all missions on Easy or better difficulty level
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...ts_gangsta.jpg Gangsta - 50gs
Complete all missions on Normal or better difficulty level
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...ulletproof.jpg Bulletproof - 100gs
Complete all missions on Hard difficulty level
The difficulty achievements stack. The first 4 missions are pretty easy. Missions 5, 7, and 8 can start getting absurdly hard very fast. Take it slow and make sure to maximize points with Taunts and destroy EVERYTHING you can.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...ittoheaven.jpg Gotta Make It To Heaven - 20gs
Completed Mission 9
Joke of a last mission. All you have to do is drive to the bottom and run into a few trucks. Easy.

NOTswaggers 03-02-2009 03:08 PM

These are just cuts from my main guides to just show you the Posters and Targets on a level. If you are having problems figuring out where a Poster or Target is watch the full video guide.





http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...title_misc.png
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...ulletproof.jpgNot Bulletproof - 0gs - Secret Achievement
Died on Easy difficulty.
I really hope no one needs help on how to get this. Just play any mission on easy. Walk up to bad guy. Bad guy hits you a lot. You die. 0 points!

http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...flyinghigh.jpg Flying High - 10gs
Scored air time from a single character for more than 10 seconds.
Gangsta time slows down in game time, but is counted as real time. Got this in Mission 3. Truthfully don’t know how. Check out the video to see when the achievement popped.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...arpshooter.jpg Sharpshooter - 25gs
Killed an enemy by shooting a rocket or grenade out of the air using Gangsta Fire.
I got this in Mission 4, Chapter 2. The key is patience. Look for a rocket guy and eliminate all the other enemies. Then go into Gangsta Fire and aim at the Rocket guy. Wait for him to fire and then immediately fire. It will blow the rocket and kill the enemy. If it worked correctly the achievement will pop immediately.

http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...illionaire.jpg Millionaire - 50gs
Have 1,000,000 dollars in the bank.
This is a 1,000,000 at ONCE. Not overall. If you do not have this at the end of the game you can replay missions for more money.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...packinheat.jpg Packin’ Heat - 10gs
Unlock all pistols.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...pointblank.jpg Point Blank - 10gs
Unlock all close combat weapons.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...ots_rifled.jpg Rifled - 10gs
Unlock all assault weapons.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/..._explosive.jpg Explosive - 10gs
Unlock all special weapons.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...s_tooledup.jpg Tooled Up - 50gs
Unlock all weapons.
http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/..._blackbelt.jpg Black Belt - 40gs
Unlock all counter kill packs.

Once you have your Millionaire just go to a phone in game and buy all the weapons and counter kill packs. Not counting taunts (since there is no achieve for them) everything will cost you just over the mil. Guns that are unlocked by picking them up off dead bodies do NOT count towards these achievements. Those are all considered bonus weapons.

Revive a coop player.
This has to be a co-op partner. Not AI. So just have your friend go out and get mowed down and then help him up.

http://www.swearingatvideogames.com/...bots_gunit.jpg G-Unit - 50gs
Complete all missions on any difficulty as a member of G-Unit.

You have to play as a G-Unit member meaning that someone else has to host. Best to do with a friend so you don’t just get booted before the end of the mission. You do NOT need to go in order, but you do need to be in the game at the end of every chapter.

This is a very good guide :) The videos are very helpfull aswell

Sora 03-02-2009 09:07 PM

This topic needs a sticky I think

DerEnglaender 03-02-2009 10:25 PM

my personal opinion is that the sheer number of videos clutters it a little. idk maybe im just oldskool and too stuck in my ways, but i prefer a short concise text guide. but it must have taken some effort to record and post all the videos, so kudos.

A lil competition for your guide then eh ? This is looking great and is a brilliant option for those who have different opinions about guides. I personally prefer a video guide rather than a text one so this is ace and keep up the good work dude. This should definantly get a sticky !!

:D:D

As they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words"

To me

This:

Is easier then this:
target 5 - before jumping down, look to the bridge ahead. there is an arch where a heavy enemy is hiding, slightly left of that arch, real far in the distance is a yellow pixel.

This is some good stuff thanks man. just a little question when are you hoping for this to be finished. as mines a rental and goes back saturday lol

I have first run editted and encoded through the end of mission 5. When I get home today I will lay the audio and finalize those. Then probably film 6-9 HOPEFULLY. Depends on how hard and long they are. First run edit those. Then over the night final encode thru 5 and post through 5 in the morning.

Then Finish everything else up tomorrow to be posted Wednesday morning.

More then likely it will take till Thursday as I don't know if I will get the last 4 missions filmed today or not.

Then on to the next game. lol.

B Rabbit FNFA 03-03-2009 05:27 PM

ok much appreciated

:D:D

:P yeah like i said its just personal preference. we should defiantely have as many different forms of guide as possible on the site to cater to everyones needs.

and i totally see where the otehr guy is coming from, some things are much easier to explain with a quick pic.

my only gripe with videos is [unless you want to watch the whole thing] its not very easy to get to the exact bit you want quickly

When all the missions are shot I plan to do what I did for my FEAR2 guide which is then cut Poster/Target only vids with text overlays for people who want just that.

ZOMG! LOVE YOU DUDE! Manly friendly love....

Genesis x360a 03-04-2009 07:08 AM

Great guides personally i prefer video guides muh easier to understand - Awaiting to see the next set of vids. Also you should contact Nextgenwalkthroughs.com as they wuold be very interrested in posting this guide on there site also it will get your work out to a wider audience, Just a thought :)

NOTswaggers 03-04-2009 03:03 PM

Re-formatted everything with some new descriptions and added through Mission 5.

5_2 encoded poorly so I am going to have to go back and re-film it.

6 and 7_1 were filmed last night.

The Reds 1993 03-05-2009 12:23 AM

mate you deserve some serious recognition

will i am not 03-05-2009 11:24 AM

Loving this guide. Thanks for doing it.

NOTswaggers 03-05-2009 02:20 PM

Guide is laid out 100% and text is up for ALL achieves. Now I am just adding vids as I film.

Aksh0le 03-05-2009 04:39 PM

Great Guide Swaggers! I used all your vids up to the most recent and now I'm 100% done. Thank You!

note: Death from Above - playing on easy if you dont get the achievement by the time you have to take out the helicopter, dont blow it up, just let it keep circling and shoot everything around you. I eventually got it by doing it this way because my 50 other attempts failed with no cheevo.

DerEnglaender 03-05-2009 10:06 PM

hurry up so this badboy can be stickied ;)

Glad I can help! Probaby RE5. I might be able to squeeze something in if I can get 50 done fast enough.

NOTswaggers 03-06-2009 02:47 PM

Been getting a lot of questions on where I am on filming and this guide so here it is:

3_3 I was editing for time and somehow edited out a poster. So I edited it back in. New video is up.
5_2 had a bad source film so I need to re-film it
6_1 encoded bad, so it just needs to be re-encoded and uploaded
7_1, 7_2, 7_3 are uploading to YouTube right now
7_4, 8_1 are filmed, need audio and encoding
5_2, 8_2, 8_3, 9_1 need to be filmed.

Then I will re-edit ALL the missions to cut down to just targets and posters.

I want to be DONE completely Saturday morning.

xgonscm2 03-06-2009 04:06 PM

good job swag
 
hey man nice guide, i like the videos better then text, keep up the good work..
