Battle Hardened Achievement Guide/Roadmap
 

Overview:
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 2/10 (Can all be obtained in Private Matches)
- Offline: 3/4 (A New Challenger Appears, Stubborn Stunner & Wolves For Lambs - 75:gsicon:)
- Online: 1/4 (One For All - 25:gsicon:)
- Approximate amount of time to 250:gsicon:: 1-2 Hours
- Cost of DLC: 800 Microsoft Points or Free for Season Pass Holders
- Glitchy achievements: None
- Unobtainable achievements: None
- Extra equipment needed?: None

Introduction:
As part of the Assassin's Creed III's Season Pass, the Battle Hardened Pack offers additional Multiplayer experience to players with three new maps and characters for Multiplayer modes, and four new achievements. The new characters include the influential Governor, the resilient Highlander and fearsome Coyote Man, while the maps include Charlestown, Fort St-Mathieu and Saint Pierre. The Battle Hardened Pack is free to Season Pass holders, or available for $9.99 (800 Microsoft Points) to everyone else.

Multiplayer:
All four achievements are Multiplayer related and can be obtained in Private Matches. All For One can only be obtained in a team-based game type. A New Challenger Appears can be obtained in a Solo Wolfpack session without any help from others, or any effort on your part. Stubborn Stunner can be obtained in a Private Manhunt session with others, or in Training Mode by yourself. Lastly, Wolves For Lambs can be obtained with up to three other players and is probably one of the more challenging achievements on this list.

Conclusion:
The Battle Hardened Pack delivers simple, yet enjoyable content. All four achievements are very easy to complete, whether you're playing legitimately or boosting with three other players. It will take about 45 minutes for a full, four player boosting lobby, to get all four achievements. If you decide to challenge yourself by playing the Multiplayer legitimately, you will find that it may take a lot longer to obtain your achievements. Remember that Season Pass holders have free access to this DLC, while it can be purchased separately for 800MSP.

------------------------------------------------------------------

https://live.xbox.com/tiles/ch/6A/0o...fn5-2vHm4=.jpg One for All 25:gsicon:
With any of the additional characters, perform 20 ‘Revive’ actions.

You must revive 20 teammates while playing as one of the three new characters. To revive a stunned teammate before they get back up on their own, approach them and press :bbut: to successfully revive them. This action can only be performed during team based games such as Manhunt and Wolfpack.

To knock this achievement out quickly, play a Wolfpack (Invite Only) - Standard session with another player. Approach your targets and have your teammate purposely get stunned by the target. Recklessly kill the target and revive your teammate before they get back up. Repeat this method across all players until everyone obtains their achievement.

Note: Alternatively, you can play a Private Team Manhunt session with three to four players and have one of the 'Pursuing' players allow a 'Hiding' member to stun them. The second 'Pursuing' player can then revive their teammate. Repeat this process until both 'Pursuers' have their achievement, then switch teams accordingly or repeat this method on Round 2 so that everyone obtains the achievement.

https://live.xbox.com/tiles/fA/qn/0Y...fn5-6ICmA=.jpg A New Challenger Appears 25:gsicon:
Finish a multiplayer game session with each of the additional characters.

Before a match starts, you have the option to choose which character you would like to play as. You must finish a match of any mode as each of the three new characters.

Note: This can easily be done in a Custom Match by yourself. Choose the Wolfpack (Invite Only) - Standard - Extra Content Maps Playlist. You will be able to choose the character you want to use without having to worry about another player choosing your character. When the match begins, simply let the timer run down. When the match is over, repeat this for the other two characters.

Remember, the new characters are the Governor, Coyote Man, and Highlander. Each character looks distinctly different:


https://live.xbox.com/tiles/7-/JH/0I...fn5-9o8vM=.jpg Stubborn Stunner 25:gsicon:
Stun 3 pursuers without dying, playing with any of the additional characters.

While playing a Versus mode where you are the target and you are being pursued, you must stun your pursuer using :xbut:, three times in one life, as one of the new characters. This can easily be done in the Team Manhunt Mode.

Hide in a group of civilians and use the decoy, tripwire, or blend crowd perks to throw off your pursuer when they are near. You can quickly stun them while they are unaware of your presence and quickly run away. You may also want to have the knives equip on your loadout in order to slow down your pursuer for another quick stun. Simply perform three stuns without dying and the achievement is yours.

Note: This can be obtained in a Private Custom Match under the Private - On Extra Content Maps Playlist. Set the match up with Manhunt as the gametype. Assuming you are on the 'Hiding' team on the first round, have your boosting partner find you and have them allow you to land three stuns on them. Once the achievement pops, let the timer run down and repeat this method for your partner in the next round.

Note: You can also play the Training Mode Tutorials if you are short two other players. Load up Introductory Session 3. This session will start off with the practice of stunning pursuers. Simply stun three AI pursuers to get the achievement. Thanks to KAMOE550 & VyperJMc for the confirmation!

https://live.xbox.com/tiles/Q6/1o/04...fn5-xHrV8=.jpg Wolves for Lambs 25:gsicon:
Complete a Wolfpack multiplayer session on any of the additional maps.

This can be done in a private match with one to three other players. Host a Wolfpack (Invite Only) - Standard - Extra Content Maps Playlist session and complete all 25 Sequences in order to obtain this achievement.

Make sure you communicate with your team in order to synchronize your kills for more points. Be aware of the timer as the match will end when the clock reaches zero. Try to approach your target slowly to avoid getting a low-point discreet kill. Instead, follow your target or hide in a crowd with them for a silent/incognito/hidden bonus. Make sure to lock kills onto the target using :ltbut: to get a focus bonus. These bonuses will add major points to your score. Be sure to always assassinate the 'Extra Target' for more time, too.

Nooo not more mulitplayer achievements!!!!

BiggD 11-26-2012 08:49 PM

These are ridicolously easy though, dude :p

DoosMakhina 11-26-2012 10:10 PM

I dunno... I can see some people struggling with the last two. But yeh, pile of piss.

Hurricane Of 87 11-26-2012 10:55 PM

Stubborn Stunner looks like the hard/boosting one, but I'm sure I've already pulled off such a feat before. Definitely more likely on Deathmatch or Assassinate than Manhunt.

Weird how the achievements come out but there's nothing about the new maps.
I absolutely swear when I checked my friends scores a week ago there were two additional maps down at the bottom that had no scores on them. Charlestown and Fort St. Mathieu. When I went to take a picture (post-patch) they had gone though. :( BREAKING NEWS EXCLUSIVE I guess.

The AC III wiki sez the new characters are
"Coyote Man
Governor
Highlander"
Good thing there's only one Highlander. Those are the rules.

Q: I've hit level 50 and was told 'you've been awarded a prestige star!' but I've rifled through all the menus and can't find where I go to prestige.
Any idea?
I still can't buy anything that unlocks at 1*, despite having earned it. Sad face 2.0

I haven't even touched the Multiplayer yet man, so I can't help ya with your dilemma :(

However, in regards to the achievements - they all look extremely easy except for, like you mentioned, Stubborn Stunner. I'm sure that some players will obtain it without even trying however. It seems like one of those achievements that if you're trying to do it legitimately in match, it'll just come naturally - if you make it your sole purpose to play countless matches to get it, you'll end up without it. I'm eager to see what the new maps will be and the new characters sound pretty sweet!!

That's because you get the 1* at your second 50. There's a difference between the star you get that signifies that you are prestige, and the star from hitting 1st prestige.

Robbo1991 11-27-2012 06:38 AM

Thats rubbish :( hate multiplayer achievements, I thought they were supposed to release that washington DLC singleplayer first?

onyxguard11 11-27-2012 07:22 AM

oh christ quit the whining,they'll most likely be earnable in private like every mp achievement has been in the ac series

claudiaca 11-27-2012 10:26 AM

And there it goes, my 100% completion. Dam you, MP. Too bad I don't like you.

Sophia Hyakato 11-27-2012 11:31 AM

I hope these are actually easy to get because I hate the multiplayer (I can never seem to get paired with people my level.)

These are extremely easy to obtain if you take a minute to soak in the achievement's description and not complain that they're adding MP DLC.

Robbo, I thought so too. Maybe they'll do a mix between MP first, then Single Player, back to MP? Who knows, time will tell.

Easy or not, I simply don't like playing the MP. And I guess I won't go after them despite being easy.

J0kerr2012 11-27-2012 03:21 PM

So instead of trying for the perfect score...I will play through once and be done with this game...MP stinks...and I would rather more single player achievements. Oh well, good thing there are better games out there :woop:

Okay, thanks for clearing that up!

Any date for this sucker yet? I'm guessing 21.12.12 just for the in-game significance.
@assassinscreed is only good if you want retweeted fan art. haha.

WolfmanStarrk 11-27-2012 07:17 PM

I'm not bothered that there's more multiplayer achievements especially considering the Washington Downloadable will probably have more. Besides, I've resigned myself to not getting the completionist and Original Gamer ones anyway (DAMN YOU GAMBLING and GIANT OF THE STORM MISSION)

Scnew 11-27-2012 11:21 PM

These all look pretty easy. I expect I'll be back to 100% in a day or two.

yourbreakfast99 11-27-2012 11:27 PM

Yes, they seem super easy

Those two troubled me so so so so much dude. Giant & The Storm was annoying but you just gotta halfsail-deadstop right into the bow of all the ships to expose their spots, then Swivel Gun them. Gambling -> took me 334974 hours to finish -__-

this is exactly why i haven't gotten the season pass. MP is cool and all, but the SP is really where it's at, and where, IMO, the attention should be payed.

Barad 11-28-2012 03:12 AM

Look really easy, 2 of them are simply to participate.

Will end up buying every DLC individually when they're on sale.

The Splatterpus 11-28-2012 04:37 AM

I will be one of those people having trouble with stubborn stunner, as every time i go to stun someone I always get an honorable death. Oh well, guess I'll just have to boost it then.

Agreed x2.

BiggD 12-31-2012 09:03 PM

Bump since MP DLC is probably coming out soon.

CRA166 T 12-31-2012 10:01 PM

Only really just started this, and can't even consider dlc, but from AC mp experience this should be a doddle.

Mushy46 01-01-2013 12:40 AM

As much as I did not like the multiplayer in this game, these don't seem too bad.

Yeah, man. They all seem relatively easy to pull off so it'll be a decent MP addition. But 'Wolves for Lambs' I'm unsure about as to whether we need to complete all 25 sequences or just complete a game.

cjdavies 01-01-2013 01:24 PM

I ain't getting it, but that is easy, if you know how to play and stun.

Tip: Fun with noobs who like to run, play Wanted use Morph and Decoy (I'm only using this at the moment to complete the challenge). Don't bother looking for your target, let them come to you, morph a crowd. You hear a whisper, or your purser goes into High Profile run Decoy, purser kills them, you stun, no Decoy hope your purser kills another NPC lookalike and stun.

A lot of times the runners will end up congregating on one or two other targets in that team gametype where you take turns hunting each other. I got into one situation where I had two of the opposing team on the ground and I just took turns stunning them... one would get up, SMACK, turn to the other guy, he would get up, SMACK, etc. Got in three to four before they finally beat me to the punch with the assassinate.

My other favorite is setting up a trip mine right next to where I'm hiding. When a runner comes across a mine, it blows up and briefly stuns him, but you can still smack him one. So I do, then run away and do it again. Not foolproof way to three in a row, but it does work.

DarkSephiroth 01-02-2013 06:28 PM

Didn't bother with mp dlc's on revelation but this I might actually get as I don't like AC3 single player at all...

I was wondering is it 'revive' when you help your team mate after he's been stunned or is this a new ability? Now that the game is on my native language I'm really lost lol.
