Achievement Guide & Road Map with VIDEOS
 
This guide was written by myself and Deejayc, so if you see Deejayc around make sure to tell him thanks.

Although this guide is complete, I will continue to add more and more to it as I go for my own 1K.

If anyone has anything they feel needs to be in the guide, please PM me or reply below.

Roadmap:
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 9/10 (* read note below)

- Approximate time: 150 Hours +++ ??? (rough estimate)

- Offline: 42
- Online: 6
- Missable Achievements: No
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 4 +++
- Avatar Awards: No
- Glitched achievements: No
- Cheats: No

*Note on achievement difficulty - If you played the original Lost Planet and went for all of the achievements you will with out a doubt remember playing on extreme and trying to get all of those dam "target marks". It's likely you lost a few controllers due to smashing them against the wall in the process. The campaign in this game is a breeze in comparison. Unfortunately, in order to get a few achievements in this game you will need to reach #1 on the leaderboards in any category. This wasn't to bad when the game first game out, but as time goes by and people keep setting new records, this will get harder and harder.

Pre-Game Game-plan...
First off let me say, if your looking for a quick or easy 1K than this game isn't for you. This game proves to be extremely time consuming to obtain some of the achievements. You will have to do things like beat the game on each difficulty, complete 300 chapters, obtain all the good job awards, and the most time consuming of all... get all of the "Noms de Guerre" titles.

In order to obtain all of the "Noms", you will have to do things like get a crazy amount of weapon damage for all the weapons, damage with all the VS, and VS weapons, kill a certain amount of each enemy, etc... Its a long list. In order to obtain all the Noms you will have to finish number 1 on one of the leaderboards. Now that the game has been out for awhile this will be the hardest Noms to obtain. If you can not get to the top of a leaderboard you will not be able to unlock 3 achievements in this game!

The achievements for difficulty do not stack, this means you will need to play through the entire game at least 4 times. The highest difficulty you can start out on is hard. If you have played Lost Planet before and feel comfortable with the game I would recommend starting on hard first, this will be a good warm up for EXTREME! This game is 4 person co-op, but ONLY play with others you know, and know they are good! Lives are split up between the team, so your only as good as your weakest member.

Also, I recommend concentrating on a lot of campaign first, as you build your character and unlock more weapons you become more of a threat online.

Complete Episode 1 Chapter 0-B.

At the beginning of the co-op campaign, there are 2 separate parts to play. You will automatically get put into "Prologue A" if your the 1st or the 3rd person to join the room. If your the 2nd or the 4th you will play "Prologue B". Either way this achievement will pop after only a few minutes of playing. The Prologues are complete after defeating a giant akrid spider. If you want both achievements just restart the campaign and switch places with a friend. It takes about 4-5 minutes to complete the prologue and difficulty does not matter.

Note: You only need to play these one time each. You DO NOT need to play the prologue for each difficulty.

End Boss = Cordiant

If you played the co-op demo, then you have already fought this Giant. If not, don't worry, it's bark is louder than it's bite. The first half of this battle is really easy. The first thing you should do is grab all the dataposts in the area. I believe there are 3. After that, your main focus should be blowing off it's legs. I prefer a VS along with the large mountable shotgun to start things off. Just get close and bang away. Just about any of the weapons for the VS will work good here. Once you blow off a set of its legs, you will have the opportunity to jump inside it's mouth and go inside of it. I like to just stay out and keep shooting away at the legs. If you do go inside of it, look towards its center and do as much damage to the beating heart as possible. You can inflict alot of damage from inside. Unfortunately, sometimes when it spits you out you take alot of damage, or even die.

Up until this point, as long as you have kept your distance you should be pretty good. About halfway through the fight, the boss will raise its front legs and do a huge stomp that release an electric charge. Beware, this hurts like hell! And if your in a room with 4 people it can quickly drain some lives. Being inside a VS is a good way to avoid this, your VS will still take a little damage but quickly repair and continue on. If your not in a VS, the best method is to time a roll when he stomps. Also, if your at the end and low on lives, I found that if someone is low on health he can run back to the start of the map and the boss's stomped can not reach him there.

Another easy way to beat this part is to grab the 3 man VS in the area before this fight (where you fight several VS units). If you are with a couple guys grab your favorite VS weapons, and mount them on the VS. I recommend grabbing the VS shotgun and blasting away at it's legs.



http://x360a.com/images/achievements/980/s1.jpgComplete Episode 2 - 10http://x360a.com/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete all the chapters in Episode 2.

End boss = Akrid X

At first go this fight may seem somewhat overwhelming, but with the right strategy you will have this flying, headless...bug eating out of your hand. First off, be careful getting there, this stage is loaded with snipers that can easily kill you, depending on the difficulty level. Once the battle starts, have one guy go collect all of the VS rocket ammo he can. While he is doing this, you try to grab some Gatling gun ammo and run over to the VS and just use it as a turret on the ground (along the wall to the right of the train). Basically, your friend concentrates on blasting him with rockets while you, like the coward you are, sits on the turret and picks him apart. On the turret, one of your weapons has unlimited ammo, this should be firing at all times. It does weak damage but never runs out! Use your Gatling gun a bit more sparingly. Pay close attention to when he flys on top of the building to the turret's right side. This is a good opportunity to do some good up close damage. Your turret will take all the damage, if it gets low just jump out and do some quick repairs.

Word of warning, don't be fooled (like I was, taunting him) by his first death, he comes back after you drain his initial health!

The video below was done on hard but the same strategy applies to extreme.

Complete all the chapters in Episode 3.

End boss = Red Eye

This part can be very confusing if you don't know what to do. If you die here you will have to go all the way back to the beginning of the train part. The blue health bar is the coolant system.

The coolant system is controlled by 2 switches in the lower inside part of the train. You will want to keep this from going low, as the train will start to catch on fire. There is also a T-ENG replenishing machine in this room and a turret which drains your T-ENG.

By now you should have noticed huge bullet casings everywhere. Go up on the outside of the train, towards the huge cannon. Behind the cannon you will see a bullet delivery system. Basically what you need to do is, grab a shell, go to the side and load the shell. Then you need to energize the shell by hitting another switch on either side. You can have 3 shells loaded at one time. Once you energized them you have a limited amount of time to blast it at the Akrid. If your running low on shells you can use the crane near the back to load shells.

The goal here is to blow up all the round orange spots on the bosses sides. Once these are destroyed you will see a message that says "final shot". Just blast him in the face and call it a day!

With all that said I recommend ignoring the turret all together, its strong but just way to slow. There are 4 turrets on both sides of the coolant room, that can be used to do pretty decent damage. Have one or two guys down there running the coolant and shooting the turrets. There is also a helicopter near the back, have one guy in that for sure. Make sure the guy in the helicopter calls out which side Red Eye is coming up on, the guys in the coolant room can't really see.

The video below was done on hard but the same strategy applies to extreme.

Complete all the chapters in Episode 4.

End boss = Vital Fortress

After activating the switch on the bottom level, have one person get into the VS sub. This person should just repeatedly shoot missiles at the boss. The other people should head to the top, grabbing any heavy weapons they can find. Aim towards the boss's red laser targeting system, this will give you the most bang for your buck.

The only attack you have to worry about is the torpedoes attack. It will shoot multiple torpedoes at you. This attack is easy to see coming so just find some cover and you will be fine.

The video below was done on hard but the same strategy applies to extreme.


http://x360a.com/images/achievements/980/s4.jpgComplete Episode 5 - 10http://x360a.com/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete all the chapters in Episode 5.

End boss = Overland Battleship

At the start of the final part of this episode you will need to use the main laser cannon and the mounted turrets to destroy the other ship. Make sure you use the T-ENG chargers because the laser cannon using a lot of T-ENG. Have all the other players use the mounted turrets on both sides. Your main focus should be on destroying the other ships turrets, wings and laser cannon (in that order). When you see the other cannon open, have everyone concentrate their fire on it. If you do it fast enough it will close before ever getting in a shot.

You can also destroy the helicopters that come in and drop off enemies and enemy VS units. If you destroy them before they land on your ship you will save yourself from having to deal with them.

If your playing with someone you can have them shoot T-ENG into the laser cannon to charge it. If you listen closely you will hear the cannon make a sound when it reaches charge level 1, then it makes the sound again when its fully charged. Charging the laser is worth your time, it does a lot more damage fully charged.

Once the other ship is down you will be told you storm it. You need to board the ship and activate a post. Once this post is activated it will count down from 100. At the same time they will be sending guys over to your ship to activate a post on the lower level. If they activate your post another timer starts to count down. As long as you get their post timer down to zero first you will win. It may be worth while to keep a guy or 2 behind to guard your ships post.

Once you have guarded the enemy post until it reaches zero, another timer starts. You have to make it back to your ship because once this timer reaches zero the enemy ship blows up. Anyone left on that ship will die.

*Note - if you stick around near the enemy post after the first timer goes off you can keep collecting boxes until the ship blows up. This is the best place to farm boxes.

End boss = Over G

The final boss in the game... Once you reach it you will need to unload everything you can find into it's "orbs". From time to time he will shift and move and reveal his orbs, they are big round orange balls that look like the ones you had to damage in the previous areas leading up to this fight. After inflicting enough damage to one of these orbs it will darken and then finally it will lower to the ground. When it is actually sitting on the ground you need to run up to it, once close enough you will be prompted to hit the B button. If done correctly you will insert a GPS locator on it. Do this 3 times. Game Over...You Win.

Note: If you look at the orbs closely you can sometimes see a rock-like formation. You can grapple up to this and hold X, then tap B to insert the GPS unit.



http://x360a.com/images/achievements/980/s6.jpg100-Chapter Playback - 10http://x360a.com/images/site/gp-g.jpg

http://x360a.com/images/achievements/980/s8.jpg300-Chapter Playback - 30http://x360a.com/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Play through 300 chapters.

There are 6 episodes in the game, with a total of 21 chapters (there are 42 areas in the game). If you played through the game 14 1/4 times you would complete 300 chapters.

I recommend playing through on hard, then extreme, and then normal. On your easy playthrough get the remaining good job awards. After that, if your dedicated, start boosting with a friend. Boost points and credits on 5-2 and 5-3. This will give you a lot of chapters as you need to complete one each time.


http://x360a.com/images/achievements/980/s23.jpgIt's So Easy - 20http://x360a.com/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Play any combination of chapters 39 times on Easy.

Just play 39 chapters, and make sure you play them on easy. After completing your easy run through you will still need 18 more chapters on easy.


http://x360a.com/images/achievements/980/s26.jpgMe Against the World - 10http://x360a.com/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete 93 areas while online without the help of other players.

Every chapter is made up of several (usually 3-4) areas. I believe for these you need to go into campaign, make sure the "Connection Type" says "Xbox Live" and play alone. Make sure to set 3 private slots so random people don't drop in.

Also, you can play with AI just no human players.

You can play any combination of chapters you like in any order. If you playthrough the game 2 times by yourself you will need 9 more areas.


http://x360a.com/images/achievements/980/s36.jpgTwo is Better Than One - 10http://x360a.com/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete 386 areas with one or more other players.

Every chapter is made up of several (usually 3-4) areas. For these just play co-op campaign with at least one other person.

Playthrough hard and extreme with a friend. After that just boosting 5-2 and 5-3 with a friend, you will most likely need to do this for points and credits anyway.

Complete the game on Extreme.

These achievement DO NOT stack. You will have to play the campaign 4 times to get these all. Extreme is unlocked after beating the game on Hard. If you have some Lost Planet Experience I recommend starting out on hard first.

If you beat the campaign and your achievement didn't unlock it's because you didn't get the secret area in chapter 1-2.



http://x360a.com/images/achievements/980/s21.jpgEndangered Species - 15http://x360a.com/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Defeat 3000 S- and M-sized Akrid.

You need to kill 3000 small or medium sized Akrid. These count across all your playthroughs on any difficulty and it doesn't matter if your in co-op or solo. You can check how many of these kills you have by going into My Page > Statistics > Campaign Statistics. They are listed under "Enemies Defeated (S-size Akrid)" and "Enemies Defeated (M-size Akrid)". Unfortunately, there is no "total" for these stats, you will have to count each section across all difficulties to get a count.

If you can find a group of small ones flying together make sure to shot them, as that seems to be a good way to rack up some S-size kills.


http://x360a.com/images/achievements/980/s20.jpgA Thousand Unmarked Graves - 15http://x360a.com/images/site/gp-g.jpg

You can check how many of these kills you have by going into My Page > Statistics > Campaign Statistics. They are listed under "Enemies Defeated (Soldiers). Unfortunately, there is no "total" for these stats, you will have to count each section across all difficulties to get a count.

This should come fairly easy over time, I would worry to much about it. I got this achievement before the end of my first playthrough.

You can check how many of these kills you have by going into My Page > Statistics > Campaign Statistics. They are listed under "Enemies Defeated (VSs). Unfortunately, there is no "total" for these stats, you will have to count each section across all difficulties to get a count.

This will come pretty quickly. You can equip the "VS Takedown ability" which will help you kill them quicker. Also, blowing up enemy turrets count towards this. I got this achievement before the end of my first playthrough.


http://x360a.com/images/achievements/980/s7.jpgInstrument of Destruction - 20http://x360a.com/images/site/gp-g.jpg

Unfortunately, there is no "total" for these stats, you will have to count each section across all difficulties to get a count.

The end of every episode has a boss, as well as the end of a few chapters. You can also kill the same boss over and over and each death will count as a boss kill. In order for this to count for you, you need to be the one who gives the final death blow. After the chapter ends, the player who gets the boss kill will have an image of the boss by there score.

You should get this really quick, I got it before the end of the 2nd episode. Just collect all of the "orange" stuff that spills out from killing enemies and blowing up some items.

Unlock all items (weapons, Abilities, Noms de Guerre).

Collectibles in this game are earned by spending points in the slot machine, which can be found under "My Page > Customization". The slot machine costs 2,000 credits at first. Once you get all of the emotes it will cost 10,000 credits. You can earn points by doing things like playing the campaign, training, and collecting the "cubes" that bosses and random guys drop when you kill them. Some times the "cubes" will give you more than just points, example, it may give you a Noms de Guerre. So make sure to collect these fast, as they will disappear after a few seconds.

"Noms de Guerre" is a french expression that roughly means war name. These are the different titles that you can apply to your name.

If you are looking for a specific weapon and don't want to wait for the slot machine to randomly give it to you, you can save up alot of points. Go into the slot machine, and use up all of your points. If you don't get the what your looking for just exit to your dashboard. The more points you have saved the more spins you will get (the more chances of getting what you want).

These achievements will be a grind. You gain level by gaining points. You get points for playing online and the campaign. Points are based on how well you do, mainly how much you kill but also other things like getting good job awards.

Also, it appears that if your playing in campaign and hosting a game, for some odd reason you will not receive as many points as the people playing with you.

Career Points & Credits Box Drop Boosting

There are 2 chapters that are good for grinding out some career points and/or gaining credits from box drops. If you still need credits for the slot machine then play 5-3 for sure, as you get way more box drops than any part in the game. In my opinion, once you have the slot machine maxed out I think playing 5-2 for points is easier. On 5-2 there is 2 sections, but you can put it on Extreme and easily pass it everytime with 2 people. Once you get it down, 5-2 can be done in under 10 minutes. On 5-3 extreme sometimes it gets hairy trying to board the other ship and get the timer, its much harder to do this everytime without dieing, espicially with only 1 or 2 people.

As long as the NON HOST player kills the boss or ship (depending on which chapter you select) and the difficulty is on extreme both of theses chapters will net close to 70,000 points.

If your playing for credits than difficulty does NOT matter. When your trying to gain career points to level up your characters difficulty DOES matter. The higher the difficulty the more points you will earn. Boosting for career points with more than 2 people is a waste of time, seeing how only 1 person will be getting most of the points each time. Boost with is many people as possible if your playing 5-3 for the boxes. Having AI on doesn't make a difference as far as points earned. I suggest keeping them on, they do very little damage to anything that matters and act as good distractions for the enemies.

Boosting 5-3

Before you start
-Host equips T-ENG Supply ability (generates T-ENG quicker)
-Player 2 equips Superstar ability (double points earned)

Phase 1
-The person who is NOT hosting gets on the laser cannon
-The host should shoot the laser cannon anywhere with T-ENG while its in fire mode, keep doing this until the cannon charges to level 2 (listen closely for 2 unique sounds, indicating the cannon has charged a level).
-The host keeps charging the cannon so every shoot player 2 takes is fully charged
-Player 2 should take out the cannon and 4 wings of the ship. It's also a good idea to destroy the Offsprey that will try to fly onto your ship, as well as the turrets on the enemies ship (at least the ones on the side you will board it from).

Phase 2
-With the enemies ship's defenses down, you need to board it and activate a datapost. While your doing this they will send enemies to board your ship and activate a post. Whoever gets their timer down from 100 first wins. If the enemey gets their timer down first you will fail the mission losing all points earned.

-I think its easier to have one guy stay on defense and send the other guy over to clear out the enemy ship and activate the post. Once the enemy post has been activated the guy playing defense should go over and help defend the enemy post. As long as you start the timer first and don't let the enemies stop it you will win.

-Once the timer final runs out, stay in that room and collect boxes if you need them, they will continualy respawn. If you have enough lives to spare both guys can stay in that room and collect boxes until the timer reaches 0 and the enemy ship blows up. If you don't have enough lives you will have to leave the enemy ship with about 15-20 seconds left on the timer, enough time to jump back on your ship before the enemy ship goes BOOM. If you die and run out of lives at this point, all boxes and points earned will be lost and you will have to start over.



Boosting 5-2

Before you start
-Host should equip VS Takedown ability and T-ENG supply
-Player 2 should equip Supstar ability

Phase 1
-Defend the ship from enemies coming to activate switches on the hangar door that is located down below.

-Have the host, with VS takedown jump on the turret located in the front of the ship and shoot down all the incoming Offspreys. Player 2 can also help. Both of you together should be able to kill most of the choppers before they get close or drop off guys.

-There will be a point when 4 enemy soldiers jump onto your ship from the front. At this point jump down near the hangar door, by the switches you are defending. You will have 1 good push from the enemies here, do not let them get close to the switches. On extreme they activate them quickly! Once the push is over jump back up and take out the last couple Offsprey.

Phase 2
-Player 2 goes straight for the laser cannon while the host stands in T-ENG generators and builds up T-ENG. Charge the laser cannon upto level 2, same way as in chapter 5-3.

*note - while the hosts waits for the boss to come he can grab the gautlin gun and kill about 50 Akrid flying around, a nice little boost towards your Akrid kills.

-Player 2 should take out all 4 legs first with fully charged laser shots. If you aim for the backlegs sometimes you can get 2 legs at once. With the legs done and usually one more shot on the boss, he will attach itself to the ship. Make sure your laser is fully charged and blast him right in the eyes. This shot will kill him taking about half of his health away.

You're a beast. Starting already a guide. Not bad so far. Keep up the good work. ;)

Muscle Blade 05-12-2010 01:40 PM

7/10 difficulty eh? This is a definitive 10/10. Its among the most demanding lists for any game. More timeconsuming than difficult but still demanding and therefore a 10. Timeconsuming is part of the difficulty, so even if all achievements would unlock on the easiest setting this would be a 10 because of the time it takes. Bayonetta is rated a 9 and was a easy and quick 1000 points compared to what this will be.

blkalleykat 05-12-2010 01:57 PM

Nice outline 4 the guide. But what the hell was Capcom thinking with the campaign achievements...

G3N3TIC FoX 05-12-2010 04:39 PM

I hesitated to take it for achievements online as well as the achievement of six months, but with the tips that are,I'll the take, thank you for this guide.

xOverLorDx 05-12-2010 04:49 PM

Any chance of Achievement Pictures?

Big Vic XXXL 05-13-2010 07:55 AM

i dont think this can be done in 80 hours :/ the problem is the 500 online matches achievement. i have allready 8 hours playtime and 45 matches


and i just wanted to add that you can get a lot of boxes in chapter 5-3. just activate their datastation and stay there all the way to the end. maybe every 20 seconds a lot of boxes fall down. after 90 sec you will die and spawn on your ship. chapter finished. i get around 100 boxes in 15 minutes.

Gonzo345 05-13-2010 08:55 AM

Buy it just if you have partners to play with. Playing this game on solo is simply insane.

You do not have to kill the boss with the main canon, I killed it today form one of the side mounted guns near the coolant room, in fact non of our party bothered with the main gun at all as it is too slow.

OK, thanks.

Update on the guide, I will be updating as much as I can in the next few days and plan to really try to blow a lot of this out this weekend.

GandalfStorm30 05-13-2010 05:52 PM

id agree with the 10/10 difficulty as well, this game is seriously tought, especially from 2.3 onwards, ive dropped down to easy due to either smashing the game or my controller

bucko13b 05-14-2010 12:57 PM

On the 'Me Against the World' achievement, do the AI partners have to be set to 0 as well? That would probably fit into the Capcom style wouldn't it?

luke391 05-14-2010 01:44 PM

Since i like this site, im gonna post the only useful thing i know XD

since i dont see quick point methods, go into training, then do advance, beat the first mission then do the second, the second usually (always havent done them all) a shooting one, their rather easy because everything is timed out... the one im doing (#2 on the leaderboard =D) I have never obtained less than gold due to the generous almost glitched amount of time you get to beat it, so on your path to top 10 or #1 (haha good luck, im on ps3 and i think a lot of them are already unobtainable) you get inane amounts of cash ive been doing this for 3? hours and got more than story and far faster!

Edit no one cares about~!

I GOT #1!!!!

I honestly can't see them banning you for adjusting your clock.

I never actually timed mine, if you want to know the truth, but i can say this much!

I averaged completing it in 27 seconds (the stage i was doing)
from what i understand you have to try to not get the gold (i did it atleast 50 times and not once did i get less than gold)
there is absolutely no challenge, and no chance of failing unless you try
you dont have to worry about missing out on all the boxes
etc

Yours might be "better" but mine is more "fail proof" which I think alone makes it a better method, and i do believe i can get 15,000 credits in about 14 mins, with zero effort/risk

To confirm this works, shugga gb and I did this yesterday without using the big gun. Using coolant will net you a Good Job award however.

I can't believe you would get banned for adjusting the settings on your xbox. If these settings can be adjusted by the user then you could have your clock wrong or your date wrong by choice??? With the million stages needed for achievements we will be playing in 12 months let alone 6 months!

JDUB XL 05-15-2010 10:17 PM

Can't let this fall to page 2. It's a guide after all.

Chronic Comando 05-15-2010 11:15 PM

Epic, good guide! Although not yet complete, it's got considerably more info then I've seen anywhere else at this point. Keep it going, and thanks man! will be looking forward to it's updates.
