Achievement Guide with Videos and Roadmap
 

Overview:
-Estimated achievement difficulty: 3
-Offline: 50 [1000:gsicon:]
-Online: 0 [0:gsicon:]
-Approximate amount of time to 1000: 26 hours total (20 hours campaign, 6 hours co-op)
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1
-Missable achievements: Unheard , Fully Inked
-Does difficulty affect achievements?: No
-Glitched achievements: People are reporting issues with the Co-op achievements popping. I have not had any problem personally on 2 accounts. Make sure you play through each chapter from the start menu to completion each time.
-Unobtainable achievements: None

Roadmap:

Playthrough #1: This is an open world game so you can do what you want when you want. 1000ing this game will still leave a LOT of world left to explore.
Co-Op Campaign: Play through the Co-op story mode either online or local for those 6 achievements.


EQUIPMENT

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f+v0zu.jpgAftermarket Junkie - 20:gsicon: Buy all attachments and paint jobs for one weapon.
The opening pistol, the 1911, is a required buy at $60 at the start of the game. It has no attachments so you only need to buy 6 camos at $200 each for a total of $1200 for the achievements to unlock.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f6-V+E.jpgArtsy Craftsy - 10:gsicon: Craft 5 upgrades for your equipment.
You can get this for crafting the pouches and items you need to hold items. You will need to look up a recipe in the Crafting menu to see what hides you need. Then look at the map and look for the icon that equals that animal. Go to that area and hunt down the animal. You can use the camera to mark them for easier tracking. The achievement will pop as soon as you craft your fifth item.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f5B9wc.jpgHeartless Pyro - 10:gsicon: Kill 50 enemies with the flamethrower (Single Player only).
The Flamethrower costs $2400 and it is under Specials in the store. I would recommend spending the $250 on the larger fuel tank expansion. Be careful with the flamethrower as you can easily light yourself on fire.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f9oype.jpgImproper Use - 5:gsicon: Kill an enemy with the Repair Tool (Single Player only).
The Repair Tool costs $400 and it is under Specials in the store. Then use it on an enemy. It will light them on fire and they will eventually die.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f69RQm.jpgMoney to Burn - 15:gsicon: Spend $5000 at the shop.
This is cumulative. You do NOT need to save it all up and spend it once. As soon as you've spent a total of $5000 it will unlock.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f-bI1h.jpgNeedle Exchange - 15:gsicon: Craft 25 syringes.
Syringes are made in the Crafting Menu using plant materials you have found in the world. The plants all show up on the mini-map and re-spawn when you leave and re-enter an area so making and using 25 syringes is VERY simple.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f45ySP.jpgThe Good Stuff - 15:gsicon: Craft a special syringe.
For this you must first collect 30 Relics. These show up as white vases on the map. Once you have 30 you will unlock a new category under Syringes called Specials. The first one, Untouchable, costs 5 green, 5 blue, and 2 white. Craft it for the achievement.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f8SdR4.jpgToxophilite - 10:gsicon: Kill a target from 70m or more with the bow (Single Player only).
The Recurve Bow costs $925 and it is under Specials in the store. I would suggest doing this on a Outpost or Wanted enemy. If you set a waypoint via the map on the enemies location then you will see your distance to target in the bottom left of the main HUD.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f43FYx.jpgLove the Boom - 10:gsicon: Kill 4 enemies simultaneously with one explosion (Single Player only).
Easiest way to do this is to go to a Outpost and let them trigger the alarm. This will bring reinforcements in cars. Wait for one with 4 people in it and BOOM, achievement is unlocked.
(TIP CREDIT: PONYPO2001) If you have problems unlocking this with the RPG some people have had success with grenades.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f9qSzr.jpgRock Always Wins - 10:gsicon: Fully distract 25 enemies with rocks (Single Player only).
You throw rocks by pressing Right on the D-Pad. The enemy must not be currently in an alarmed state. You can also NOT kill them. You need to throw the rock, let them investigate, and then fully reset. That counts as 1. You can do this 25 times in a row.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f8rXxH.jpgIsland Paparazzi - 15:gsicon: Tag 25 enemies using the camera (Single Player only).
You bring out the camera by pressing up on the D-Pad. Then you will see skulls above the NPCs to show you have tagged them. Just pull it out whenever you get to a Outpost or WANTED Dead quest and it will unlock very quickly.


OUTPOSTS

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f9fr3I.jpgRebel With a Cause - 10:gsicon: Liberate 3 outposts.
To "Liberate" an Outpost is to simply go in and kill all the enemies. Once everyone is dead, the flag will change and it will move to your possession. Doing so unlocks new quests in the area.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f8lg75.jpgIsland Liberator - 40:gsicon: Liberate all outposts.
There are a total of 34 Outposts.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f7HacX.jpgUnheard - 20:gsicon: Liberate an outpost without triggering an alarm.
The opening mission Outpost does not count so head to any other Outpost on the map. Getting the Bow or a Silencer for a weapon will greatly help on this achievement. Most of the Outposts are VERY small. 4 or 5 enemies tops.

BillyBobTwo 11-29-2012 03:16 PM

SIDE MISSIONS

As soon as you complete the first Outpost mission as part of the story you will unlock one of each of the side quests. Simply complete each one and you will get all four of these achievements.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f5NOUA.jpgBagged and Tagged - 10:gsicon: Complete a Path of the Hunter quest.
The Path of the Hunter quests are a series of side quests where you need kill specific animals with a specific gun. You will be directed to a area and the gun will be there. The first one is for killing 5 rabid dogs with a shotgun. When you get to the area be sure to check the mini-map as the hunting area will show up as a greyed out section. Kill all the animals with the required gun and the achievement will be yours.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f5D5e+.jpgPoacher - 20:gsicon: Hunt and skin a rare animal.
Certain Path of the Hunter quests are for rare animals. These are needed for the top level crafting recipes.
You'll know you are at a rare quest because the poster will show a big red RARE across it. There is one at Camp Murder among many other places.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f7Fey1.jpgIn Cold Blood - 10:gsicon: Complete a WANTED Dead quest.
WANTED Dead quests require you to go to a specific area and kill a commander NPC with the knife. Using a takedown is the easiest way to accomplish this and is the first upgrade you should get. You can either run and gun into the area taking out the guards first and then running in for the takedown or stealth in and get the takedown immediately. Use whichever play style you desire.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...5/5+f-X7R9.jpgRoad Trip - 10:gsicon: Complete a Supply Drop quest.
The first Supply Drop quest available is a simple :30 driving quest where you need to drive a quest specific Quad, following pre-determined checkpoints, to the end point. The first one is extremely easy.

The Trials of the Raykat are a series of challenges that have on-line leaderboards and score requirements. These load into private areas to test your skills. The first one unlocked is just North of the main starting village. It is a takedown challenges. You get bonus points for Silent and Takedown kills. Note that even if you reach the score requirement you still need to finish the challenge alive for the score to count.

Check the information section at the end of the guide for a video for it's location.

INFORMATIONAL

Here is a nice area in the bottom left of the main area below Dr Earnhearts that ALWAYS has enemies.

iBuzz7S 11-29-2012 03:22 PM

Why didn't you just pull the achievement tiles from your profile on Xbox.com? They're all blank and it looks like shit, sorry to say.

Pretty sure I got 'Never Saw it Coming' when I jumped off a shipping container (located in some of the outposts). You must also have the skill, otherwise you will be falling to your death, or maybe a little scratch.

Oh as well, you can miss an achievement. How do you liberate an outpost without triggering the alarm if you have captured all of the outposts? ;)

ChickinOnaChain 11-29-2012 03:22 PM

Sweet! Keep up the good work!

upindat 11-29-2012 03:24 PM

HELL YEA!! be picking this one up. swaggers u the man!!!

Unfortunately those are the tiles here on x360a which are the ones we are supposed to use. Hopefully they update it.

Technically you can start a new game and then do Unheard then, it but I will update it.

Predni 11-29-2012 03:32 PM

You should be fine with using the Xbox pictures, but if you ever submit the guide it might be an issue.

Anyway, nice work :)

As far as I know it's a problem with uploading the https files onto this server, since that is what xbox.com uses now. So basically, when you upload the images from xbox.com you will need to remove the s at the end of the http in the image to get it to work properly.

Barad 11-29-2012 06:49 PM

Damn another early guide that's great! I was hoping at least this game would be worth playing for more than 30 hours unlike Hitman but no..

DJ RJester 11-29-2012 09:20 PM

Good guide, I can't wait to get this game in the morning.

Nevander 11-29-2012 10:13 PM

Looks good so far.

I'm planning to write a guide too, but I have to wait until December 4th. :(

Do you not think you will get 30hrs out of FC3?..or do you mean you have already finished it?

No I'm just basing my thought off the roadmap, 1000 in 22 hours it says but I guess there may be a few more things to do past the achievements that may add a couple of hours..well I hope.

It's more along the lines of personal preference. The OP, from what I can gather, has not completed the game yet, thus making the 16 hour campaign time unconfirmed. Regardless, it will never be 100% because no two people will play the same way.

:p

Zim 11-30-2012 03:45 AM

Great guide so far!

Just thought I would add that I believe the achievement ''Fully Inked'' is also missable. The reason being that some skills have criteria to make them unlockable. One of them has the criteria to take two outposts without being detected. To get unheard you only need one, so would in fact need another one to get all skills. Would be a pain to have to start a new game to re-earn ALL skills if you missed it.

Also off-topic but iBuzz7S's comment is rather rude =/ Especially from a mod. To say part of a guide ''looks like shit'' when it has only just begun? And due to an error with the site note the TC =/

He's not a mod. The green text means he's a subscriber.

Iv AJay vI 11-30-2012 04:07 AM

3/10 ; is it really that easy?

DEG23 11-30-2012 04:23 AM

Good start, but are all the videos necessary. The achievements you have posted them for are extremely easy and don't really need videos. Generally videos are only used to show difficult achievements that can't be described clearly in text.

The OP obviously knew what I meant, or he did not take offence to it. Don't see how or anyone else should.

Never bashed the guide or his efforts in it. Just simply put out there that it looks like shit because all of the achievement tiles are blank. Besides, the site review has been live for a week. They could of pulled those tiles and updated the current ones.

I used to think that too but the easy ones always get the most views. I could make a vid about pulling out the camera 25 times.....

Difficulty doesn't affect achievements for one. The only really difficulty is the fact you have to run all over the entire map to do and get stuff. More really a time sink then a difficulty factor.

Infernal 11-30-2012 07:19 AM

Only 16 hours for the campaign? I was hoping it was gonna be longer :(

I dont think he completed the game to actually say its only 16hrs(correct me if im wrong). Who knows it might be 16 or 30+ it really depends on how fast you play and whatnot.
