The Sorted Achievement Guide for Half-Life 2
 
Originally created by Pyroman31, sorted by Link2430.

Well since people requested it (including me) and it hasn't been done yet, I decided to separate the Half-Life achievements by game myself using Pyroman's guide. It will be more than one post. Hope this helps, and if I screwed up or if something needs to be added, let me know. I am not taking credit for these, just putting them in an order that seems better. If not let me know. Good job with the guide Pyro.

These are not necessarily chronological, but separated by what you see in the start menu (includes secret achievements).


Half-Life 2 Achievements:

Might sound alittle tough but it's not all that hard. Just keep finding saw blades, barrels, boxes, and anything else to pick up and shoot at enemies. If you stuck on a rooftop with no items to pickup and are being chased by enemies, just run from them...You can pull out other weapons but you just can't hit the Right Trigger. Even if you swing the crowbar to open boxes it will count as using another weapon.

Just before you cross the bridge to that farm with many foes, there is a big car pile up. If you look next to it, there is a hill with a tree on it. Get up the hill and there should be a corpse with the crossbow. The player should still be able to stick that guy from the hill provided they aim slightly above the target.

Sorta difficult. When you come to the beach where you have to cross the sand that is infested with Antlions, find anything of use and use the gravity gun to make your own little pathway across the sand. If you happen to mess up, just reload an autosave and start again. The achievement will unlock, if done right, as you are on the hill RIGHT before the little battle with the Antlion Guard.

This one was a matter of luck for me, but I thought about where it might be easily possible, where a large group of combines come out together, and I knew in the last part of the game, when Breen is in that ball thing. At then end of the game in the chapter "Dark Energy", when Breen is trying to escape, simply get up to the part where there are three energy ball fields separated by panes of glass, take out one of the balls and then turn around and look back at the hallway entrance to your left once you have turned around. From this hallway, there will be a group of 7-6 combines, make sure to shoot it as soon as you see the first one, because they spread out more as they move.

Nice job. I wish you would have made this earlier when I was going for the achievements on this game.

Armstrong x360a 12-29-2007 01:12 AM

How lucky is this! I'm just starting HL2 and I find this great guide. Thanks for putting it together in this easy to read format. And thanks to pyro for doing the legwork.

Edit: This deserves a sticky imo. I realize it's the same as the achievement guide, but could be useful for many people that want to play through the game with the achievements ordered this way.

Tops work, exactly what I need, just got the Orange Box today and loving it.

Hi, great guide but one question, in Ep 1 level Lowlife, there are flares for Zombie-que, but can i use them as I go for the one-free bullet? Thanks.

laundryman 12-30-2007 08:49 PM

Great guide

Yes, you can use the flares. There is only one bullet that you have to use and you use it on a lock to get through a door

thanks this was really helpful

I got the Conservationist achievement on the rooftop after you kill the last gunship (unlocked the One Man Army achievement then) where the enemy lands in a dropship then drops the bridge across. If you cross the bridge some guys will swarm out and I used the alternate fire on the alien assault rifle to kill them. I had to try it a few times but I did get it there. Probably not the easiest place to get it as others have pointed out.

Great work on organizing the guide.

I had a hell of a time getting the 2 point shot achievement. The ball went through the hoop but for some reason it wasn't counting it. When you get it you will see a green light go off on the backboard. I backed up about 4/5th of the way to the wall and shot. Had to try it like 30 times.

Small mistake.
Fight The Power is 10 G not 5.
Regardless, it`s an amazing guide, great job.

greenie9 01-13-2008 09:17 PM

hate to sound like a prick... but

a couple of achievements are not game specific, and probably should be put under a different heading...

things like "hack attack", "bone breaker", "trusty hardware" can all be gotten in ANY of the games (not 100% sure about hack, need manhacks for that :P)

as i said... just being a bit of a "order nazi" but its just a thought

get in close to a group of soldiers and shoot your energy ball - the second you shoot it, draw it back in. just LT, RT, LT, RT, etc. i got it without really even trying.

laundryman 01-17-2008 08:42 PM

Woo! I got Lambada Locator and I am done with HL2 and EP 1!

Anathema729 01-20-2008 03:47 PM

I'd just like to say thanks for organizing this guide. It has helped me A LOT. :)

dirt junkie 77 01-21-2008 09:33 PM

Any one know any good places to get the 'Man hack' achievement? Seem to be really stugglin wid this one for sum reason?? Treid a few different levels but never seem to get enough kills :(

shadowr4ven 01-22-2008 04:44 AM

there's a spot in Episode One where a million rain down on you in an outside viaduct. just grab one of the last ones and use it like a chainsaw on your future soldiers.

Does this work for the first Half Life 2 game list??? I haven't started esp 1 or 2 yet as I want to finish all the achievements for each game before moving on, but if this works I will

trebligydna 01-22-2008 08:54 PM

you have the whole course of the game to get the achievement too. i didnt get it all in one spot.

Blackjaw x 01-22-2008 10:40 PM

I haven't opened my copy of the game yet, just because I wanted to find something like this - looks great!

A few questions however (please answer):

1. Are they also in order of when you have to look out for them / will receive them? I mean the episode ordering is a decent bit of help, but if I have to keep my eye on each achievement for that episode anyway, it would get confusing.

2. Can you put the ones that you have to look out for for the entire game at the very beginning (such as collectibles)?

3. How long is episode one? I want to do it for fun the first time, using bullets then another time for that last achievement.

trebligydna 01-22-2008 11:25 PM

1. they are fairly close to being in order

2. the game keeps track of the ones that add up in the achievement menu in the game

3. episode one is only like around 3 hours depending on how you play

sinnister 01-23-2008 02:14 AM

on the zombie chopper achievement when playing though Ravenholm...I know you cannot use any weapon other than the gravity gun...but can you use the right trigger of the gravity gun?

or do you have to pick up items and throw them...not the jolt from the gravity gun?

Just finished Ravenholm. Using the jolt from the gravity gun does not hinder you from getting this achievement.

shadowr4ven 01-25-2008 03:57 AM

is it even possible to "throw" items on the 360 version? i don't think there's a button for that. maybe i completely missed it.

I think you're right. Are you asking regarding the Defiant achievement specifically? I think it just depends on whether you aim at the guard or the trash can then hit release. If you're looking at the guard it throws the can. I could be wrong though since it's been awhile since I did that part.

Feel My Rage 01-28-2008 08:31 PM

Hey guys,I have a question.....is the Counter-Sniper achievement unlocked when you kill the snipers that are keeping barney holed up in the broken down warehouse?Because if so,I never got "Counter-Sniper"....(and I finished HL2 the other night)
