Introduction:
Welcome to the 3rd instalment of the Far Cry series. As Jason Brody, alone on a tropical island, you will have to confront the dark side of humanity. Gamers will be impelled to act as he learns more about the horror and corruption that is taking place on the island.

Playthroughs:
The game should only take you one whole playthrough to complete and this includes the added addition of the coop missions. They are pretty straight forward and aren't too tasking. It's quite a delight to play.

As you play through the game, main and side missions will become available to you as well as WANTED Dead, Path of the Hunter, Supply Drop quests and Trial of the Rakyat. When these do, you'll want to complete these before the main missions as added XP is gained and adds to your advantage plus towards further achievements.

The games made up of a few story related achievements that can't be missed, so don't worry about these. They'll simply unlock as you progress through the main missions. he rest shouldn't cause you any other issues, so overall the game is a easy 1K.

Coop:
Playing the coop missions is very similar to the main story, but you're simply with a friend(s). You have a route before you that you must take and simply objectives given to you. You can also complete these missions via split-screen, so don't worry if you can't find a friend to join you via LIVE.

Misc:
There's plenty Misc achievements in FC3. Some you can get early on, while others will require you to uncover the island to reach certain spots. As well as that, some again will require certain weapons, equipment and so forth.

Collectables:
You've been let off lightly with these achievements, as for one set (Relics), you don't have to collect all 120. Grabbing all the collectables in the game or the set amount required isn't too hard. Though there's a bit of travelling involved, each one will soon been shown on you map.

Glitchy:
There seems to be an issue when playing Coop and when unlocking the story based achievements linked to it. Sometimes they unlock, while in other circumstances sometimes they don't. This is mainly linked to playing none-private matches. I personally had no issues running through the coop on a private match game with a friend.

For more information, please go HERE.

Conclusion:
Overall the game is not hard at all and quite a lot of fun to 100%. Difficulty does not matter, so feel free to put it on the lowest or the hardest one depending on your skill.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075514.jpg Free Fall 5:gsicon:
Freefall more than 100m and live (Single Player only).

Throughout the game you'll come across gliders which are in most cases on the high hills of the island. Only a few of these though are high enough to reach the 100m mark. The earliest and best one is on the upper left side of the island which you'll head over to early on in the game. Head to these coordinates - X: 442.4, Y: 651.1 - to find the glider. Now grab hold of it with :xbut: and glide out to the water in front of you.

Don't move the gliders position and just head straight. Keep looking down with the :rs: until you're over the water and when you're in a good position, hold :xbut: to drop from the sky. Once you hit the water, the achievement will unlock.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075492.jpg Fearless or Stupid 15:gsicon:
Dive more than 60m (Single Player only).

You'll first need to play a few main story based mission to unlock the Deep Dive Syringe. Once this has been unlocked and you've made one with the required coloured plants (2 Blue and 1 Green), head towards the sea. You're now looking for an area with the darkest blue to it. Head to these coordinates for an area opened up early to you - X: 709.1, Y: 835.6.

Now equip and use the Deep Dive Syringe and dive down to the bottom. Your best bet here is to press :ls: to swim faster so that you don't drown. Once you've reached and touched the bottom of the sea, the achievement will unlock.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1067187.jpg Inked Up 5:gsicon:
Earn 5 skill tattoos.

Please refer to 'Fully Inked' for more details.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075994.jpg Fully Inked 30:gsicon:
Earn every tattoo by learning all the skills.

To earn every Tattoo (Tatau), you'll need to earn XP by playing through the game. XP can be gained by completing missions, doing side tasks like the WANTED Dead/Path of the Hunter, taking over Outposts or Crafting. For each time you level up, as shown in the Skill menu, you'll receive 1 Skill Point to use.

Not all Skills will be available to you from the start and some will only unlock once you've progressed in the main story or completed certain objectives. I'll list below the few you should really try and complete before you advance too far into the story.

If by chance you have taken over all Outposts in the game but have not completed the Skills objectives. You can reset them all by going into the games options menu.


http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1069040.jpg Money to Burn 15:gsicon:
Spend $5000 at the shop.

This should come naturally as you play through the game. Even if the guns become free due to you taking over Outposts, each one will have something you can buy to customise it. This is accumulative, so you not have to spend $5000 all in one go.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1067561.jpg Aftermarket Junkie 20:gsicon:
Buy all attachments and paint jobs for one weapon.

You can do this quite early on in the game and all you need is $1200 in your wallet. Your starting gun, the 1911, only has 6 camouflages to buy worth $200 each.

Once you have the money to hand, head to a shop or your Outpost locker. Select the 1911 and then press :abut: again to 'Customise'. Now buy all 6 camouflages and the achievement will unlock. This method is one of the fasted and cheapest to do.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1069039.jpg Rebel With a Cause 10:gsicon:
Liberate 3 outposts.

Please refer to 'Island Liberate' for more details.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075991.jpg Island Liberator 40:gsicon:
Liberate all outposts.

There are a total of 34 Outposts scattered across the islands. The Outposts are the strongholds for Vass's/Hoyt's men and control certain areas of the map (shown in red) and are represented by a Flag icon. Taking over an Outpost clears the surrounding area of the enemy AI.

To clear the an Outpost, you must dispose of all the enemy AI inside and around it. This can vary from 3 guys, to 5 and some guard dogs. Your best bet is to use a stealth like tactic, as if they sound the alarm (which you can disable) more guards will come to assist.


http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1067560.jpg Unheard 20:gsicon:
Liberate an outpost without triggering an alarm.

This is best done on the first few Outposts you come across. Mainly because they're made of few guards and are easy pickings. To liberate an Outpost without any alerts you must take the stealth route to killing everyone. You'll need to make sure the enemy AI does not spot you and this is pointed out by the white arrow at the top of your screen. If this fills up all the way to the sides and guard starts to shout and shoot at you, you've been spotted. This also counts if the alarm is set off.

The first thing to go is to find an advantage point near the Outpost and use your camera to tag all the AI in the area. This way you can keep track of them all. Once that's done, make your way around it distracting each guy with your rocks one-by-one. When they get close, either make sure you're hiding in some bushes or on a corner and press :rs: to do a takedown.

Using your gun should be out of the picture here, as it'll alert more guards to your spot. Just take your time and this should be quite easy. If by chance you have taken over all Outposts in the game but have not completed the Skills objectives. You can reset them all by going into the games options menu.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075141.jpgFull Bars 20:gsicon:
Activate 9 radio towers.

There's a total of 18 Radio Towers, but you only need to take over 9 for this achievement, which is pretty easy, though you will be unlocking them all as you pay through the game. The Towers are located by the Radio Tower icon on the map. Simply head to one and you'll then need to reach the top by climbing up it. Doing so, you'll be awarded with your map being uncovered and a new gun being free from any store.

There are no enemy AI involved with these, you simply must find your way to the top of 9 for the achievement to unlock.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075995.jpg Archeology 101 20:gsicon:
Gather a total of 60 relics.

There's a total of 120 Relic scattered about the islands, but for this achievement you'll only need 60. The Relics come in 4 forms and each form varies on its location and difficulty to find. Some will be out at sea and/or under water, while others will be up in the hills.

As you play through the game and unlock new Radio Towers, you'll notice an Urn like icon on you map. These are the Relics. You can also buy Treasure Maps from stores to help you unlock their locations. Now simply locate and grab 60 of them for the achievement to unlock.


http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075996.jpg Dead Letters 20:gsicon:
Gather all "Letters of the Lost".

There's a total of 20 Letters of the Lost scattered about the islands. The Letters normal locations are in bunkers or near old artillery sites.

As you play through the game and unlock new Radio Towers, you'll notice a Letter icon on you map. These are the Letters of the Lost. You can also buy Treasure Maps from stores to help you unlock their locations. Now simply locate and grab all 20 Letters from the dead bodies for the achievement to unlock.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075992.jpg Memory to Spare 20:gsicon:
Gather all the memory cards.

There's a total of 20 Memory Cards on the islands and all are within the Outposts you liberate. In each new Outpost, you'll have your own building where you can stock up on equipment. If you then look closely on the map, over some Outpost buildings you will notice a Computer Chip icon (Like the one in the achievement tile).

Head inside of your building and inside you'll see a laptop. Simply grab this by holding :xbut: and the Memory Chip will be yours. Now keep liberating Outpost to find the rest.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1068927.jpg Jungle Journal 20:gsicon:
Unlock 50 entries in the Survivor Guide.

I wouldn't worry too much about this achievement as it'll come naturally as you play. Your Survivors Guide holds all information you gather as you play through the game. So characters, items, collectables, animals etc. Simply play the game as it intends you to and as you do all of the above and much more, new entries will unlock.

There a lot more than 50 in the game, so again you should no problems unlocking this achievement.


http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1067188.jpg Bagged and Tagged 10:gsicon:
Complete a Path of the Hunter quest.

After liberating an Outpost, these will become available to you via the news board in the same Outpost. The Path of the Hunter quests are shown to you via a Blue Dear icon. These are small side quests that task you with killing a certain animal with a specific weapon.

Accept the mission, and you'll then be directed to pick up the weapon at a set location and from there, you'll need to use it to kill the animal. Killing the animal and then skinning it will result in you completing the mission.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1068926.jpg Road Trip 10:gsicon:
Complete a Supply Drop quest.

After liberating an Outpost and accessing new Radio Towers, these will become available to you via random locations on the map. The Supply Drop quests are shown to you via a Blue Plus icon. These quests are a checkpoint race, where you need to deliver the medic kit to a set location.

At the start, you'll be given a vehicle and then you'll need to drive and follow the smoke checkpoints to the destination. You'll want to get there as fast as possible as you're also given a time limit. Most of these are pretty easy to finish on time, but some are a little harder due to the terrain you have to cover. Just take each part carefully and don't put your foot down in hilly or bumpy areas.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1065072.jpg In Cold Blood 10:gsicon:
Complete a WANTED Dead quest.

After liberating an Outpost, these will become available to you the a news board in the same Outpost. The WANTED Dead quests are shown to you via a Blue Skull icon. These are small side quests that task you with killing a enemy AI but with your knife.

Accept the mission, and you'll then be directed to a set location where the enemy is. Remember to scan the areas first tagging each person so you can find the target (shown by the Gold Star icon). Remember that he must be taken down by your knife but there are a few other ways.

Later on you can buy a Skill where you can take down an enemy and then if you're aiming at another NPC, you press :rtbut: to throw their knife, thus getting another instant kill. Doing this on the target also counts. The other is if your friendly NPC's (Rakyat) join in the fight. If they somehow get into a fire-fight and kill him by gun, this counts as a completing the quest.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1068928.jpg Let the Trials Begin 10:gsicon:
Beat any Trial of the Rakyat score.

Trial of the Rakyat are shown to you via a Star icon. These are small Trials that task you with a variety of challenges. Each one is different and has it's own unique set score you can try and beat.

There's a few around the islands, but you only need to complete one, so feel free to pick and play anyone you feel is the best option for you.

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1078509.jpg Poker Bully 20:gsicon:
Win $1500 playing poker.

After liberating certain Outposts, Poker will become available to play in certain little villages or towns. The Poker locations are shown to you via a Black Spade (card shape) icon. For this achievement you do not have to win $1500 all in one game or session. It's accumulative over the course of the game, so feel free to play when you can.

To win decent money, you're going to want to play the $250 buy-in games. Now to actually win profit money, you'll need to get over that $250 buy-in. So if you leave a game with $251 in your games bank, then you've made $1 and have $1499 to get.

The game of Poker isn't too hard to play and there are helpful note pages you can refer to if you need help. Sometimes you'll lose a few times in a row, while others you'll get a good hand and can be up to $750! It's based on luck and how you pay. If you also watch the video below, there's a nice little trick to try out for easy winnings.

To see your current earnings, head to you Handbook and press :xbut: to go to the Statistics. Now scroll down to World and it'll be under there.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1067189.jpg Hunter Hunted 10:gsicon:
Lure and kill a predator.

The animals that count towards this achievement are anything that will attack you - Komodo Dragons, Sharks, Wild Dogs, Tigers and so forth. You can tell if it's a predator by tagging it and if the Teeth icon is show above their head, it means they'll attack. Just look for their locations on your map to find their roaming spots.

Once you've found one, make sure it starts to head towards you and in an attacking mode. Now simply kill it by whatever means you see fit and the achievement will unlock.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1074989.jpg Poacher 20:gsicon:
Hunt and skin a rare animal.

The rare animals are linked to the Path of the Hunter quests. When looking at the poster on the board, some will have a rare stamp across them in red. These quests are no different than the normal versions, other than the animal is slightly different colour wise.

Again, make sure you kill and skin the animal as later one its hide will be used to craft the last object of certain equipment.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1068930.jpg Artsy Craftsy 10:gsicon:
Craft 5 upgrades for your equipment.

To craft a new item for your equipment, you'll need a certain amount of animal hides. Head into the Crafting menu and look through your equipment. Each one will tell you how many hides of a certain animal you need and how many you currently have in stock.

With this information, simply head out into the wild and start your hunt. Simply craft any 5 new equipment and the achievement will unlock.


http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1069540.jpg Needle Exchange 15:gsicon:
Craft 25 syringes.

Crafting syringes requires plants. These are scattered all over the islands, and are impossible to miss. The best and easiest ones to craft are the Medicine as they only require 1 Green plant. If you have anything else to hand that can be crafted into any other type of syringe, then you might as well use it.

Overall, this achievement will come naturally as you progress through the game. A good boosting tactic is to stock up on Green plants and find a predator animal. Let it attack you, then press and hold :ybut: to heal yourself. Keep doing this and when you run out, go craft some more and then repeat the process.


http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075515.jpg The Good Stuff 15:gsicon:
Craft a special syringe.

The Special Syringe can only be made and crafted once you've found and collected 30 Relics. Once you've collected 30 Relics the Untouchable Syringe will become available for you to craft. Crafting one requires 2 White plants, 5 Blue plants and 5 Green plants.

Once you've got them, simply head into the Crafting menu and make the new syringe for the achievement to unlock.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1067190.jpg Say Hi to the Internet 10:gsicon:
Find the lost Hollywood star.

This achievement can be located at these coordinates X: 619.7, Y: 559.4 on the main island. It'll be easier to get later on in the game when you've unlocked more of the island, but it can be obtained at any point.

Once you've reached the location, look for the bodies hanging from the tree. A little to the left side of them (back to the water) and buried into the sand you should look out for a head popping out of the sand. Head over to it, then press and hold :xbut: on the head to unlock the achievement.



Nozza XBA 12-21-2012 02:46 PM

http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075998.jpg Heartless Pyro 10:gsicon:
Kill 50 enemies with the flamethrower (Single Player only).

The Flamethrower can be found under the Specials menu when at a shop for a cost of $2400 or you can wait for it to become free by unlocking more Radio Towers. If you have the money, buy it and if you have any spare I'd purchase the upgrade for it as well.

Now all you need to do is kill 50 enemies with it. The weapon itself is pretty good but you need to get in nice and close for it to really work. Though once you do set someone alight with it, it'll kill them in no time. One burst should do the job.

This is best used on Outposts. Let the alarm ring out, and you'll have a new group of enemies to kill. Take note that this only works on enemy NPCs. Killing animals does not add to the counter but you can provoke your Rakyat friends to attack you and doing so will then make them count as kills. To see how many kills you've earned, head into your Handbook and press :xbut: to see your Statistics. Scroll down to Kills and you'll find it there.


http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075512.jpg Love the Boom 10:gsicon:
Kill 4 enemies simultaneously with one explosion (Single Player only).

This can be unlocked with any weapon or equipment that gives of an explosion, so don't be nailed down by one thing. Personally the best is the RPG-7 which can be found at any store under the Launchers menu or obtained for free by unlocking Radio Towers. Now for the best chance at getting this, head to any un-liberated Outpost.

Once you arrive, make sure you get caught and the enemy NPCs set off the alarm. Now wait out the battle until the reinforcements arrive. Keep an eye on the map of the location they're coming in from and wait there. Once they arrive, it'll be a convoy of 2 vehicles and it's the second one you're going to want to shoot with your RPG-7.

If you get the hit, the vehicle holds 4 enemy NPCs and the they'll all die and the achievement will unlock.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075999.jpg Rock Always Wins 10:gsicon:
Fully distract 25 enemies with rocks (Single Player only).

To distract an enemy, make sure you're within distance and press :dright: to throw a rock. If the rock lands within the right area, the enemy NPC will get distracted and walk to the spot where the rock landed.

You now need to make sure that you do not attack him and let him walk away. Killing him before he starts to walk off, will void the distraction and count towards achievement. Through the whole game you should be distracting enemies to get them into vulnerable positions, so this should unlock in no time.

Take note that some enemies like the snipers sometimes do not get distracted. Also, each enemy has about 3 distractions before they start to look elsewhere in the area. So don't throw all 3 in quick succession.


http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1068929.jpg Island Paparazzi 15:gsicon:
Tag 25 enemies using the camera (Single Player only).

To tag an enemy, get out your camera by pressing :dup:. Now press :rtbut: if you need to zoom into the enemies location. If you hover over them with camera, an orange icon will pop up above their head. This now means they're tagged.

Simply do this to another 24 enemies and the achievement will unlock.


http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075513.jpg Never Saw it Coming 20:gsicon:
Kill an enemy with a takedown from above from a glider, zipline or parachute (Single Player only).

For this achievement, you'll first need to buy the 'Death from Above' Skill under the Heron Skill Tree. Once you've got this you'll need to find the perfect place where you can get either glider, zipline or parachute in the same place as an enemy NPC.

Personally the zipline is the best and easiest option here, so aim for this option. One of the best places get both of these is during the 'The Medusa's Call' mission. Head to the mission marker and look out for the zipline over looking the area the enemies are walking about.

Once you're ready, distract one into place by pressing :dright: to throw a rock. Once he's under the zipline, press :abut: to grab hold and slide down. When you're above him or within a range, press :abut again to drop off. Doing so, you'll automatically do an Death from Above Takedown and the achievement will unlock.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1074591.jpg Improper Use 5:gsicon:
Kill an enemy with the Repair Tool (Single Player only).

You'll first need to get the Repair Tool which can be brought from the store where it's located under the Specials menu or you can wait for it to become free by unlocking more Radio Towers. Once you've got it, make sure it's equip.

Now simply find some enemy NPCs and have the Tool out. Head up to them and simply keep close and press :rtbut: so the Repair Tools flame starts to set them alight. Once the enemy is on fire and dies, the achievement will unlock.



http://www.trueachievements.com/imag...00/1075493.jpg Toxophilite 10:gsicon:
Kill a target from 70m or more with the bow (Single Player only).

Again, you'll need to head to any store and grab the Recurve Bow from under the Specials menu which you can buy or get for free by unlocking Radio Towers. Next, make sure you buy the Marksman Sight for $300 as this will help.

Now head to any un-liberated Outpost on the island and try and get to a good vantage point where you can look over it and see the enemies inside. Tag the Outpost with a custom marker from the menu and walk back to the vantage point until the distance meter in the corner shows 70m+.

Now located the easiest target and aim true. Use the new sight to help you gauge the distance and see if you're landing too short or shooting too far. The Bow is a one hit kill, so all you need to do it get that one hit! If you're having trouble hitting your target and if you can, use the explosive arrows.

*snip* Killing friendlies or animals do not add to the counter. To see how many kills you've earned, head into your Handbook and press :xbut: to see your Statistics. Scroll down to Kills and you'll find it there.[/COLOR]

Killing friendlies (Rakyat warriors) do count. Provoke them and they'll start to attack you. They count for multiple achievements actually. (Such as the toxo achievement :))

Ah ok. I'll add the video when my PC is running a bit better. Just got into the post page.

I didn't know the Rakyat counted. I killed one, but got nothing to the counter, probably because he didn't get angry. So I'll add that.

Thanks

Not that I'm complaining, but why are there two achievement guides and roadmaps?

Anyway, "Free Fall" can be done just by playing the story. There's a cenote at the north of the north island where you have to jump down for one of your missions (one of Buck's missions I believe), and that counts. I actually went down there near the start of the game while looking for collectables, and the achievement popped. Realised it was the same place during that mission I mentioned.

the ferenczy 12-23-2012 12:36 AM

Nozza, you have the wrong video for the toxophilite achievement. You repeated the improper use video. Otherwise, the guide is great.:)

Infernal 12-23-2012 07:38 AM

I like this Achievement Guide better! thanks for this :)

StayonTarget 12-29-2012 07:53 PM

Excellent guide Nozza. Way better than the other one.

Hoborg 12-30-2012 02:58 PM

Very good guide. Much better than that other lazy and haphazard guide.

BBDrew84 12-31-2012 05:12 AM

Nice guide, I was wondering why I did not get "Rock always wins" and it was because I was killing them. I also noticed that you had the wrong video for Toxophilite, just a heads up

Nozza XBA 12-31-2012 11:26 AM

Thanks for the replies all. I'm sorry in the delay in editing out the slight video mix up and any other stuff that needs sorting out.

I'm currently still on Christmas holiday until Wednesday but the main issue is that my internet at my new house is beyond crap and hasn't worked in the last 3 days. Kind of means I can't get online and sort it all out and I'm not going to even try it from my iPhone.

As soon as I'm back at work or my internet gets sorted her at home I'll make the changes for everyone!

I'm nearly done with the game, just have a few outposts and all the collectables left so your guide has saved me quite a bit of time. Cheers!

So you trash the other guide for not listing glitchy cheeovs. But nothing but praise for this guide that list glitchy at 0!! You know why neither guide list any? Because THERE are NONE. But why are you posting wanting this guide to hear your complaints about glitchy cheevos??? Both guides are great and both list glitch achievements at 0. Seems like you have something against the Op of the other guide instead of a legitimate complaint.

In regards to heartless pyro achievement.

Civilians don't count but allies do. Shoot them once and they'll start attacking you and any surrounding people will become aggressive towards you. I had left the achievement as my last, accidently caught a "friendly" and it was adding to the counter so I went ahead and made the most of it.

On a side note, all single player achievements took me around ~23 hours according to my ingame timer. It felt alot longer than that though, was wondering if the time stops when your looking at your map, paused, fast traveling and loading times?

Then again It could be just me, It did only take me 4-5 days casually playing this game.

Edit - Hi to the poster above me, recognized your name from a recent Halo 3 boosting session. :P

Also the Fully Inked cheevo CAN be obtained after beating the game. Just keep beating the outpost's and getting XP to unlock the abilities.

So if someone were daft enough to liberate all of the outposts without fulfilling the requirements of taking two of them undetected for the Ninja Step skill, how then would they be able to fulfil the requirement if there are no outposts to liberate? Fully Inked is therefore missable.

This. Why would you [BrandonR85] argue that it's 'not' missable if there's multiple comments within different threads and both authors of the achievement guides say that it is...

Anyways, great guide, Nozza. I'll definitely be using it to mop of the miscellaneous achievements along the way.

Nozza XBA 01-02-2013 10:00 AM

Finally got some internet back at work. All edits made with the achievement descriptions and videos mentioned.

Going to do a quick grammar check and all that, but other than that I'm all done. Enjoy!

Hoborg 01-02-2013 03:43 PM

I'd appreciate it if you mentioned the glitchy co-op achievements. It's been confirmed by lots of people in my co-op thread.

I hadn't got around to play much coop due to my internet being down, so I wasn't aware of this when making the guide. I'll add the information and links now.

Thanks.

Once again i will ask you. What cheevos have you not been able to unlock??? Cry to anybody and everybody to hear you glitch story. I still bet that you have unlocked all them. Anytime you want to prove me wrong please do. And its funny you totally trash the other guy, then praise nozza, now ask for him to list them. So does every guide need to list if for some reason they will not unlock for YOU?? There are no glitched cheevos. 1000 can be obtained if you pay attention and actually read. Hell I would be if the other op came to your house, unlocked them for you, that still would not be enough!! Plain and simple plug in a second controller and your done.

Nozza XBA 01-02-2013 05:12 PM

Right to clear this up. Can someone tell me if they're glitched/glitchy or whatever please.

I have broken internet at my house, so I can't try the coop out myself.

Nozza i am just trying to make a point to hoborg. He trashed the other op that made a guide. I got half of mine online and the other half with a second controller. No big deal. But I called him out for trashing the other guy in a post and saying nothing in his post about your guide. Your guide listed the same as his. NO GLITCHED cheevos. There are no problems that make it where you cant complete this game. I feel that he has something against the other op and now just covering his tracks. Maybe he just wanted a link to HIS tread. Both guides are great and I appericate all the work you guys put into them. Simple solution to getting the co op cheevos. Plug in a second controller. Have a friend play or just play by yourself. Done. Another 1000k added to your gamerscore.

I would label them as glitchy. It seems that sometimes the host in a public match won't have the achievement unlock for them at the end of the match. I personally saw this happen 3 times with a group of randoms i was playing with. Yet once we switched over to a private match there weren't any problems, same goes for split screen.

Harry94 01-02-2013 11:34 PM

The only problem I had with co-op was I had to replay the last mission 3 times to get the trophy. I'm yet to try co-op on the 360, so I'll see how it goes with that. But it's pretty random wherever it will unlock or not, I don't think there's a set reason for them not to unlock in public.

Great guide btw :)

Wildmn34 01-02-2013 11:52 PM

Great guide, Nozza.

Thought you may want to know for the "Love the Boom" Achievement - Kill 4 enemies simultaneously with one explosion. I found an easier way to do it.

The Trial of the Rakyat located at 756.5, 746.0

It's a trial where you have to get kills with an RPG. There are a couple times where I got multiple kills with one rocket. That's where I unlocked the achievement. For those who are fighting the other way.
