Introduction
Welcome to the Achievement Guide and Road Map for Quake Arena Arcade. After 2 years of waiting, the time has finally come. The Xbox LIVE marketplace gets its own Quake. Use this guide to help you on your way to the 200.

Step 1 - First Playthrough


The very first thing we want to do is to play through the singleplayer campaign in order to get to know the basics and get a feel for the controls of this game. I do not recommend it, but if you feel like it, you may increase the difficulty to 4 stars so that you don't need to do another playthrough later. After the very first kill, First Frag will unlock.

While playing through the campaign, try to do the following things:
  • Play a challenge in CTF and capture 3 flags in a row (See Flag Master)
  • Frag someone after dying. (See You're Comin' With me)
  • Humiliate and opponent carrying the Quad Damage (See Ultimate Humiliation)
If you don't get these, don't worry as they all are easily boostable.

Try to use every weapon at least once and pick up every item for the Weapons Expert and Collect 'em All achievements. Note that you need to pick up the CTF-only stuff for this. So either play a CTF challenge or play a CTF match in practice mode.

And after 33 arenas, Lord of the Arena is yours.

Step 2 - Second Playthrough

If you didn't increase the difficulty on your first playthrough, now it's the time to do it. Increase it to 4 stars and play through the whole thing again. This will net you the Hardcore achievement.

Step 3 - Multiplayer


The only achievements which need to be done in multiplayer are This is Stroggos!! (Knock someone to their death), Arena Eternal (500 matches online) and I can win (Win 5 ranked matches). Arena Eternal will take quite a while so sit back and enjoy this awesome classic.

Conclusion

The achievements of Quake Arena Arcade are, except one, relatively easy and doable. You might have some problems with the singleplayer campaign on the high difficulty but with a bit of practice, you will definitely succeed. Other than that, it's an enjoyable 200.

GUIDE


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/+m1s5w==.jpgI Can Win - 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Won 5 ranked matches.

Simple. This one requires you to win 5 ranked matches online in any mode.

Note: This achievement has glitched out for some people. If you happen to be one of those unlucky guys it seems like you will have to wait until it's been fixed.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/-1Z+0Q==.jpgWeapons Expert - 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Fragged an opponent with each weapon.

For this, you need to kill and enemy with every available weapon in the game. Kills from both singleplayer and multiplayer count. This is the available weaponry:
  • Gauntlet
  • Machinegun
  • Shotgun
  • Grenade launcher
  • Rocket launcher
  • Lightning gun
  • Railgun
  • Plasma gun
  • BFG10k
  • Nailgun
  • Prox Launcher*
  • Chaingun
*= Only in CTF, One Flag CTF, Harvester and Overload Games.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/+ExlUg==.jpgLord of the Arena - 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Defeated Xaero in Campaign Mode.

Just play through the singleplayer campaign in order to unlock this. There are 33 arenas to beat.

Note: You don't need to do the challenges for this.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/-Xd3ZA==.jpgGladiator - 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Fragged 1000 opponents.

This will come over time. It doesn't matter if singleplayer, player or ranked match - all kills from all modes count towards this.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/-JeP9w==.jpgThis is Stroggos!! - 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Knocked someone to their death.

This achievement is only attainable on maps in space. You need to knock somebody to his death by shooting him. The best ways are to shoot somebody while he is in mid-air (After using a jump pad) or spraying rockets at somebody near to an edge.

This is easily boostable in a private match.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/-e6Oqw==.jpgFlag Runner - 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Captured 3 flags in one match.

The best way to do this is to start a singleplayer CTF-match with a capture limit of at least 4 (Don't take 3 or else it won't unlock) with no bots. Then just capture 3 flags and it'll pop up.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/-ZGSTA==.jpgFirst Frag - 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Got a frag. Way to go!

This will be your first achievement. Just kill somebody in any mode.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/+aydwQ==.jpgArena Eternal - 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Played in 500 multiplayer matches.

This achievement will take quite a while. Only online matches (ranked/player) count towards this. A good way to boost this is to set up a private 2-player match in either CTF (1 capture) or DM (5 kills).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/-HFq3w==.jpgHardcore - 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Conquered the universe.

This is the hardest achievement in the game and requires you to play through the whole singleplayer campaign on Level 4-difficulty or harder. I suggest a lot of practice before attempting this since enemies are significantly harder than on the lower difficulties.

The final boss is Xaeros. Be careful when he posesses a railgun since he has 99% accuracy with it. Your best bet is his stupid AI. He will keep dropping to his death, thus making it easier for you to win. I recommend you to get the BFG10k to try and kill him right after he spawns - to prevent him from getting his railgun.

Right after you've beaten Xaeros, the achievement will unlock.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/-8+HHg==.jpgUltimate Humiliation - 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Humiliated an opponent carrying the Quad Damage.

I would suggest boosting this since humiliating someone carrying a Quad Damage is next to impossible (Unless the carrier has absolutely no skill and you have 200 health and 200 armor, of course).

Just start a map with a Quad Damage on it. Let it being picked up and use your gauntlet against the carrier.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/-raGQg==.jpgCollect 'em All - 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Picked up one of every item.

This achievement requires you to pick up at least one of every item available in the game. Here is a complete list of every item:
  • All weapons and ammo
  • 5, 25, 50, Mega health
  • Armor shard, Armor, Heavy Armor
  • Medkit
  • Invulnerability
  • Personal Teleporter
  • Kamikaze
  • Battle Suit
  • Haste
  • Quad Damage
  • Regeneration
  • Ammo Regen*
  • Doubler*
  • Guard*
  • Scout*
*= Only in CTF, One Flag CTF, Harvester and Overload Games.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/-A52OA==.jpgYou're Comin' With Me - 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Fragged someone after dying, before respawning.

The best way to do this is to set up a private 2-player match on any map with a rocket launcher. Damage yourselves until you're low on health and stand in front of each other (With a certain distance). Now person A needs to shoot and person B will do the same a few seconds after, so that person B dies and his rocket will kill person A while he is dead and not yet respawned. Repeat vice versa.

aB1s 12-16-2010 11:20 AM

Great guide. Thanks!

chucky3ds 12-16-2010 11:22 AM

Awesome guide man! I'm guessing the game finally came out for you? Haha.

Just one thing about:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...1/+m1s5w==.jpgI Can Win - 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Won 5 ranked matches.

Me and what seems like a few can't seem to unlock this even if we have won 5 Ranked Matches, but somebody said on here that quiite possibly you have to win 5 in a row? Correct me if I'm wrong dude! :drunk

Nope, you don't need to win 5 in a row. I myself traded wins with a friend and it unlocked properly on my 5th win.

Ah ok. Thanks for clearing that up buddy :)

KiddingPigeon 12-16-2010 11:33 AM

Sure, go ahead. :p
The items aren't very well hidden.

Misandope 12-16-2010 11:57 AM

nice guide so far, I gonna help contribute If I find out something helpful :)

brett43 12-16-2010 12:58 PM

Great guide. I don't like my chances of getting the hardcore achievement. It was a struggle to beat the game on hardcore on my pc with mouse and keyboard so I have no chance with a controller.

tastefulmrship 12-16-2010 01:22 PM

You're Comin' With Me - 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Fragged someone after dying, before respawning.

Another tactic for this in any mode is to pick up the KAMIKAZE powerup and wait for a bot/friend to get close to you. Press your use key and you will die, creating a dome of death that will kill the bot/friend as well. The achievement will only unlock for the person holding the KAMIKAZE!
I can't remember which map(s) it's on, but it's the yellow SKULL icon when browsing the maplist.



Also, is THIS IS STROGGOS online only? I've knocked bots off platforms for ages now and got no achievement!

colarider 12-16-2010 01:55 PM

Kewl!Gonna buy it right now:D

kzone1991 12-16-2010 06:50 PM

Downloading the game to my xbox as we speak, thanks for the guide.

Really? Hm this is weird. I did it online, too but a friend of mine confirmed that it can also be done with bots.

T0b3 12-16-2010 10:41 PM

Guide updated, added "I can win" to glitched achievements.

NeMiiZz 12-17-2010 09:42 AM

When you are going for the "pick up everything" achievement, makes sure you complete each match or it wont count.

chucky3ds 12-17-2010 10:01 AM

Here is an odd thing.

I finally unlocked the "I Can Win" achievement... after losing 2 matches in a row??

I have won way more then 5 ranked matches and never could unlock it. Me and somebody else were playing and as soon as the match was over and I was defeated... *pop* it unlocked. :confused::confused:

2 1/2 hours of THE GANTRY bouncing later and still no achievement. It must be MP only! The description even says;

"Knock someone to their death in a multiplayer match."

Conclusive, huh?

Do you need to complete all challenges on 4 star difficulty too?

Yes you do sadly.

Balc0ra 12-19-2010 02:22 AM

A tip for "Ultimate Humiliation". I just made a practice match against one 1 star AI on a small map with Quad damage. Camp by it and wait for him to pick it up. Does not have to be online.

And for "You're Comin' With Me" I got that one on a practice match to. 1 star AI on CTF. I had 12 players to ensure I had a good enough chance to get one. Played one of the space CTF maps. And picked up the Prox Launcher with at least 15 rounds in it. Planet a few around the area of our flag when they where attacking and jumped into the void or let em kill me. After a few attempts I finally got it.

dont make it to difficult, the easiest way is just to pick up the "kamikaze" skull und press RB when enemy is near you --> achievement unlocked

vadim311 12-20-2010 08:19 PM

What is this?
Battle Suit
Haste

mickspawn 12-20-2010 10:18 PM

Practice Mode:
Team Deathmatch: House of Pain: Lightning/Haste - On a star above sewers.
FFA: Demon Keep: Yellow Shield/Battle Suit - Under teleporter (bridge/lava).

For the others I used CTF and FFA. Put it on 1 flag or 5 kills.

YogiB 12-26-2010 02:09 PM

Me and RetroCascade was boosting the 5 wins... And somehow I got it even I lost every match we play so he could get it, and then he lost 1 match and got it.. So there are something weird about that one o.o"

But when some items are only on 1 map... yeah it can be annoying to check them all if you dont know what it looks like...
