FLIPADELPHIIA’s Decision Achievements Guide
Nozza's FUBAR Tips

Released on June 26th, 2012

Single Player:
If you plan to get all the achievements, you want to start your first playthrough on "Suicide Mission" difficulty. During this playthrough, make sure to get all the pieces of intel, following the INTEL GUIDE, and try and get as many kills as possible yourself. You will unlock most of the achievements during this go of the campaign. Try and unlock "Deer Hunter" and "All You Can Be" during the first chapter of the game. I suggest just playing through once, and not revisiting chapters just to get all the decision based achievements. Leave alternate decisions for your second playthrough!

Completing the game on "Suicide Mission" will unlock "FUBAR" difficulty, and this is the difficulty you'll be playing on during your second time through the campaign. It'll be similar to the other difficulty, but you will die a little faster. Just make sure to use Attack Command, and be as safe as possible. After completing the game for the second time on "FUBAR" difficulty, you should have all (or at least most) of the achievements. Revisit chapters to boost certain kills and unlock any of the achievements you might have missed.

At this point you should have all 1000:gsicon: in the game, after about 12-18 hours or so.

Multiplayer:
There are no multiplayer achievements in this game.

Conclusion:
The difficulties can be challenging, but otherwise this is a straight forward completion for most gamers, and is recommend to boost gamerscore for those who enjoy shooters, and are looking for a game to rent over a week or weekend.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-x1A60=.jpgDeer Hunter - 20:gsicon:
Kill an oryx. (campaign only)

An oryx is an animal that looks a lot like a gazelle. Right after the tutorial in Chapter 1, you'll be prompted to rappel down the side of a bridge. As you get to this point, don't rappel but look down off the side to the right and you'll see a group of Onyx's.

It is also possible to get this achievement at the end of Chapter 10 - Part 2, when the truck crashes. After walking you will be given a pistol with one bullet in it. Leave your team mate to die, and take the pistol with you. At the end of the path, an oryx will be feeding on a dead body, just line up the shot and kill it.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-5UChg=.jpgAll You Can Be - 20:gsicon:
Complete any chapter with 60%+ accuracy without dying or reloading a checkpoint.

If you are going for this achievement specifically, just load the first chapter (new campaign) on Walk on the Beach (easy) difficulty. Use the pistol to ensure accuracy, and have your teammates do most of the work by using the commands. You can view the video for more information on the mission, and the intel locations for Chapter 1. The mission is only about 15 minutes, so it isn't too long.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5--L7mw=.jpgSierra Hotel - 50:gsicon:
Complete three chapters in a row without being killed or reloading a checkpoint.

My advice is to complete the game to unlock all the difficulty achievements first. If you still haven't unlocked this achievement, just select the easiest diffculty and start a new campaign, being very careful, and unlocking it during the first 3 chapters.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-v24eE=.jpgThe Human Factor - 20:gsicon:
Kill an enemy by tagging him with a sticky grenade. (campaign only)

The first time you pick up stickies is in Chapter 6, and you can get the achievement as soon as you pick them up if you're careful. You simply have to aim and toss it at an enemy and hit him. You can hold :lbbut: to view where the grenade will be tossed. Once you hit him, he will kind of do a little panic dance and then blow up.

During Chapter 7, there is a guaranteed spot to get this one. You will eventually come to part where you have to shoot out a big glass in order to continue. After that you rappel down into a desert area, and you will come across several guys standing around, not noticing you. Before firing at them, look for a sticky grenade crate right as you enter the area. Crouch down and aim the grenade at one of the guys, making sure to stick him.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-7N89c=.jpgPreventive Diplomacy - 20:gsicon:
Kill an enemy just as they are throwing a grenade. (campaign only)

When an enemy is about to throw a grenade, he will will draw his arm back and hold it in the air a few seconds. As long as you kill him before he throws it, you will get the achievement.

If you reload a checkpoint, the same enemies will always throw grenades. If you find an enemy that is throwing a grenade, feel free to reload the checkpoint, and then stare at him until he raises his arm, and then kill him for the achievement. You can also unlock it through natural progression.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-4rFv8=.jpgArmy of One - 20:gsicon:Kill 3 enemies with a single grenade. (campaign only)

There are plenty of opportunities to get this achievement. The grenades are powerful, so this achievement isn't too bad at all. Near the beginning of Chapter 2, when you pick up your first pair of grenades, you will have a chance by throwing one into the room when you get ambushed. You can also wait a little bit later in the mission to find a group of enemies. See the video for 2 examples.


You shouldn't worry about this as you'll have plenty of opportunities for this.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-tvGC4=.jpgDamn Close - 20:gsicon:
Kill an Edged Weapon Expert while he is up to 5 meters away. (campaign only)

The very first time you encounter an edged weapon expert will be in Chapter 5. After your first sniper fight, you will fall down to an area. Some enemies will then come running through the doorway, and your team mates will tell you that one of the enemies is an edge weapon expert. He will be sprinting at you with his hand up in the air. Once he's close enough, take him out with whatever weapon you have, although I recommend a shotgun. If he gets to you, it's instant death. If you miss the opportunity, you can reload the checkpoint or attain it later in the game.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-nX6FQ=.jpgAirspace Control - 20:gsicon:
Kill 10 enemies while they use zip lines or are rappelling. (campaign only)

This may have to be boosted, but luckily it is quite easy to do so. During Chapter 11, you will flank a group of enemies, and take control of a turret. Once you do, look up and an enemy will begin to zipline towards you. Make sure to kill him while he is coming down the line, and then reload the checkpoint and repeat until you have the achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-+08os=.jpgClose Combat Carnage - 20:gsicon:
Kill 4 enemies with a shotgun in 10 seconds or less. (campaign only)

I found this one easiest to be done at the beginning of Chapter 6, when you become stranded. Go over to the right hand side from your start point to find grenades and a shotgun. Proceed down this hallway, and you should have just flanked 4 enemies, with a shotgun in your hands at a very close range. Kill them all to unlock the achievement.

If you are having trouble using the above method, just keep at it, and use the shotgun in close quarter combat situations when enemies are running towards you, and you can always try to try the difficulty down.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-iu6Qg=.jpgBattle Management - 20:gsicon:
Kill 50 enemies using only the Attack Command. (campaign only)

Battle command is when you instruct your teammates to kill an enemy. Simply press and hold :rbbut: and select an enemy, and one of your teammates with attempt to take him out. Once the enemy is killed, it will count as an attack command kill. Remember, you are only able to mark 1 enemy at a time as well.

Note: It is suggested that you leave this after getting most of the gun specific kill achievements. You are most likely to get a lot of kills using Attack Command during your "FUBAR" difficulty playthrough.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-8tC0Q=.jpgAdapt and Overcome - 20:gsicon:
Blow up 10 explosive objects, killing at least one enemy each time. (campaign only)

You will find many explosive objects scattered around the game. They are dark red and have a fire hazard symbol on them. They are scattered all over starting as early as the first chapter. Simply shoot ten of them and make sure that each time the explosion kills at least one person. If you kill more than one person with a single explosion, it still only count as 1 on the counter.

If you find a spot where there are enemies near explosives close to a checkpoint, you can just keep reloading the checkpoint until you unlock the achievement. I good spot to get this achievement is during Chapter 10, Part 2, where you use the grenade launcher from the side of the truck.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-oWGXI=.jpgSituational Awareness - 20:gsicon:
Stun an enemy by dumping sand on their head. (campaign only)

You will get this achievement while playing through the game, and it's hard to miss. There are multiple ways to get it, but all you'll need to do is trigger some piled up sand, causing it to spill onto an enemy.

Chances are that you will unlock this achievement randomly when shooting at enemies and using explosives, although in case you don't have it, there is a spot where it is almost guaranteed. While playing Chapter 10, there will be a point where your team mates are trying to unlock a door, and you will have to hold out the position for them. The room will be now stormed with enemies. Wait a few seconds for enemies to fill the room, and now shoot the glass pane on the ceiling, letting sand fall onto them. This will unlock the achievement for sure, if you were unable to get it while playing.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-qP4L0=.jpgGood Training - 20:gsicon:
Sprint into cover 10 times while under fire. (campaign only)

You will attain this achievement easily within the first few chapters. Just make sure to use :abut: and sprint towrads cover whenever you are near enemies. You're character will slide into the cover, and if enemies are shooting at you, you will get one tally towards this achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-lOEZs=.jpgBlind Luck - 20:gsicon:
Kill 5 enemies using blind fire. (campaign only)

Get in cover, and then press :rtbut: without aiming. If you can kill 5 total enemies, you will gain this achievement. Easily done using an assault rifle during the first chapter.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-q82aE=.jpgIn Your Face - 20:gsicon:
Kick an enemy by vaulting over a cover. (campaign only)

This happens when you vault over cover (using :bbut:), and an enemy is on the other side of it. This will make your character kick the enemy. This may be hard to get on the harder difficulties as most of your battles will take place at range, but there are a few places you will be able to get it. You can always revisit chapters on lower difficulties once you beat the game.

A notable place to get this is during Chapter 10. There will be a cutscene where one of the bad guys has one of your partners at gun point. After the cutscene, go forward and you will see a soldier on the other side of a barricade with his back to you. Mount the barricade, press :bbut: to vault over, and you will kick him right over the edge. The level is set-up specifically for you to do this.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-0MAvE=.jpgApplied Force - 20:gsicon:
Hit 10 enemies with your melee attack. (campaign only)

For this achievement, you have to run up to any bad guy and press :bbut:. It does not have to kill him; you simply have to just land the melee attack. It can be quite hard to do on the harder difficulties. If you don't get this achievement during your normal playthroughs, try to lower the difficulty and play Chapter 2, running up to enemies and using the melee attack.

There are multiple places to boost these kills. It can be boosted right at the start of Chapter 2, even on higher difficulties. Near the beginning, run down the ramp and 2 guys will be standing near the edge of the walkway. They won't turn around, so run up to them, press :bbut: to kill both of them. Now look right, there will be a 3rd enemy, so quickly run down to him and press :bbut: again. Now simply restart the checkpoint and repeat. It is also easy to boost right at the beginning of Chapter 6. Also, remember that an execution does not count towards this achievement. They must be standing and alive.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-zs+mI=.jpgAim High - 20:gsicon:
Kill 250 enemies with headshots. (campaign only)

A headshot can be attained with almost any weapon, including Rifles, Pistols, SMGs, Snipers and Shotguns.

Just play through the game and chances are that you will unlock this achievement during your first or second playthrough. There is not really a good place to boost this, just try your best to aim for the head. When you get a headshot, you'll get a short slow-mo moment during the gun battle. This is like an in-game trigger to show that you got one.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-tcITI=.jpgMarksman - Grenade - 25:gsicon:
Kill 50 enemies with grenades. (campaign only)

Weapons that count:
Frags
Sticky grenades

Just make sure to use your grenades wisely, on larger groups of enemies and this achievement will unlock with natural progression, most likely during your first playthrough. It can also be boosted in Chapter 2 when you come across your first grenade ammo box. Just pick up the grenades, kill the enemies in the room, and reload the checkpoint.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-l9KIc=.jpgMarksman - Heavy Arms - 25:gsicon:
Kill 150 enemies with any heavy weapon. (campaign only)

Weapons that count:
Grenade Launcher
RPG
M249 SAW
AA-12

The best place to "boost" this is during Chapter 10 - Part 2, where you protect the truck using a grenade launcher. Just keep killing enemies to progress. If you want, you can purposely die when you see the helicopter, and it will start you back at the beginning of this section. Otherwise, just use the weapons posted above, the most common being the M249 SAW, which you can pick up from tougher enemies.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-7+yss=.jpgMarksman - Sniper - 25:gsicon:
Kill 50 enemies with any sniper rifle. (campaign only)

Weapons that count:
Scout Tactical
M-99 Sniper rifle

You will have a fair amount of opportunities to pick up the Scout Tactical sniper rifle throughout the game, although it will never really have much ammo. Just pick it up when you can, and try to get as many kills as possible with it.

If you want to get these out of the way as soon as possible, just keep replaying the checkpoint where you first come across a sniper rifle.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-0-O+0=.jpgMarksman - Shotgun - 25:gsicon:
Kill 75 enemies with any shotgun. (campaign only)

Weapons that count:
M1014
W1300

The first shotgun you will get will probably be the W1300 during the 3rd chapter, although there are plenty littered throughout the game. They are not very powerful unless you are very close range, so keep this in mind. Just rotate through whatever weapons are available to you, and you will get this achievement with natural progression.

If you are desperate for kills, start Chapter 6, go to the right hand side to pick up the shotgun and kill as many enemies as possible. Then reload the checkpoint.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-zfw34=.jpgMarksman - Small Arms - 25:gsicon:
Kill 100 enemies with any pistol or SMG. (campaign only)

Weapons that count:
M9
Magnum
Desert Eagle
UMP
P90

Just try to play a chapter or two using a pistol and you will easily get this achievement. Otherwise, this is easily attained through natural story progression.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-id0BQ=.jpgMarksman - Rifle - 25:gsicon:
Kill 350 enemies with any rifle. (campaign only)

Weapons that count:
M4A1
417
FAMAS
Scar
AK47

The rifle is the most common weapon in the game, however it also requires the most kills. Just use them when you come across them, and eventually you should kill enough enemies to unlock this.

Great guide already. Thanks for that. Might go renting it because this surely doesn't look too long.

Wow hmm...
I cant wait for this game but it germany its coming on 29th june....

Thanks For The GUide.

Despite it being a simple and straightforward one, thanks for the guide. It is a little sad that a game that I was kinda looking forward to for a few weeks has little to no replay value whatsoever.

Will wait until it is available as a pre-owned copy from EB Games, buy it and have it returned within a week.

Good to see a guide so soon. Well looks like I won't be getting this for a few months until the price drops.

Nice guide but 50/50 online and 0 offline is very misleading, it needs to be the other way around.

+1

All achievements can be unlocked offline. Better to show that and not online, otherwise someone is going to get the game thinking they can play via co-op and unlock achievements or even online multiplayer.

No need for an apology, it clearly says 'Work In Progress'. :p

Is the Fubar difficulty anything like COD Veteran or Halo Legendary?

Is it easier than those games' difficulties or harder? Last question and I'm out of this thread.

Keeping this for future reference! Thanks for making it.

So do I have to beat the game on Suicide difficulty to unlock Fubar difficulty or can I play on combat ops diff. and still unlock Fubar diff.

Also do the dfficulty achievements stack, ie will beating game on suicide unlock normal and easy achievements.

You link for Flip's YouTube guides just goes to YouTube.com not to his channel or a SpecOps Playlist if he has one.

Thanks, just wanted to confirm. Dlc probably wont come out for another month or so.

I have done a few updates, added 3 videos, and will continue to work on this guide until it's almost done for tonight.

I am currently rendering Part 1 for the intel locations.

It's a lot easier for viewers if you have them all in one part. The game doesn't have that many Intel so the video's length should only be around 8 minutes.

Maka 06-27-2012 01:06 AM

I've put information for almost every achievement now. I still have a lot of editing of text to do, especially on the last post.

After that is some formatting.

There are 23 intel locations, which in my opinion are too much for 1 video.

2 videos would probably be optimum, but I've already made all my video presets and templates for a 3 video structure, and I want to be able to give you guys the videos as soon as possible.

If they were to be in one video, you might be waiting for the video a few days.

I hope this is ok.

You should make it clear you have to play on Suicide to unlock FUBAR because I didn't know and now I might have to do three playthroughs.

And I'm guessing the roadmap is still a work in progress.
