The achievements look like a good set. They look reasonably easy (although some will be time consuming)

However, there is one that sticks out as REALLY difficult.
Surviving ALL 50 rounds of Locusts in the horde mode seems super hard

EDIT: Some people, having played the game, have said this isn't too hard as you can just get it on casual. Thats a relief

Maybe. For the achievement, it stated it could be done on any difficulty. It might not be so bad on Casual. And, also, I haven't read anywhere what difficulty the Epic testers tried so for all we know, it could have been Hardcore or Insane difficulty.

Prety sure there is a journal to keep track.

TooMuchCowbell 08-31-2008 03:59 PM

Apparently the best at OXM only made it to 7 on Horde, and the best at Epic only make it to 25. But there was no difficulty mentioned. The achievements seem enjoyable, and most will unlock as you play through.

Royle 08-31-2008 04:47 PM

Yeah this looks like an good set a bit biased towards single player but still looks like a good set of achievements.

xLoCuSt_LicKeRx 08-31-2008 05:23 PM

I was watching g4 and they interiewed some of the staff, and they said that they could only make it up to level 7 of the horde

Look on the bright side... its going to be fun as hell to play

Chud 360 08-31-2008 08:40 PM

My understanding of horde mode is that it starts pretty easy and ramps up. I haven't heard anywhere that you can set the difficulty in this mode. I may be wrong tho

joshnorm 08-31-2008 08:50 PM

Look much easier then the last ones list. Well I wasn't really trying to achievement whore it up on GOW but this looks very doable

i should be able to get 700/800G by like first day ;) haha only joking.

crazyjarjar2003 09-01-2008 03:48 AM

i was thinking that the weapon achievement ones might be easy but then i remembered that only one certian type of kill counts per match. but you could do some player matches on one round and get it that way meh......either way my ass has got 5 days after the release off from work and i dont think ill sleep all five of those days. see you all online.

I think the seriously 2.0 achievement could actualy be quite fun and not to hard considering that you can do it online and in the campaign.
i think completeing all 50 rounds of horde will be the toughest achievement but it will be good to have a try at it.
other than that the other achievements seem to be pretty easy
:uzi::eek::drunk

Robbo1991 09-01-2008 05:43 PM

Im lookin foreward to the horde ones cz i herd that you can do it 5 player so it shouldn't b too difficult on casual

Pyroman31 09-01-2008 08:42 PM

I freakin' LOVE this list. So much better than GoW1.

sharno 09-02-2008 03:55 PM

i think they dropped the ball on this one, they look too easy !!!! the 100 kill for each weapon on gow 1 was awesome and took some time and kept you playing, but if you get the achievements quickly then you most likely arent gonna play as much.

Manwell Pablo 09-02-2008 06:51 PM

Yeah they do seem alot easier, not a bad thing if you ask me.

And as for keeping you playing, I think playing 1999 rounds of Multiplayer was pretty much got that rapped.

RRIKER 09-02-2008 07:03 PM

I think people are overlooking the fact that seriously 2.0 will still take a butt load of time. Look at Undertow's "Lord of the deep" - 80 kills in 1.5 minutes and 10,000 kills STILL took forever.

I wonder how many kills you get for hoard mode per hour?
If seriously 1.0 took a minimum of 100 hours, with 100 kills/hour (minus gathering times, etc)

seriously 2.0 will take a minimum of
1000 hours with 100 kills/hour
500 hours with 200 kills/hour
200 hours with 500 kills/hour
100 hours with 1000 kills/hour

and YES, i know all modes count, I'm just stating how long it will take to get 100,000 kills using the above figures. When we figure out how many you can kill in an hour of hoard, take 100,000 / (kills per hour) = length of time needed.

INFERNOII 09-02-2008 10:15 PM

Meh, if you can get Seriously, Seriously 2.0 won't be so bad, I mean come on, Campaign? I wonder if even Local Play kills count...

i agree with this. i believe that it was tested on insane so casual may be okay... i wont stop til i do it on insane tho probably using gridlock =D

i dont think this is as bad as it sounds.. this is less than 200 games on 10 rounds.. i usually plays 18 rounders so i think think i worked it out as playin 112 games. so not to bad at all

Yes, if you go and check ur leaderboard stats from GoW 1, you will see that its not that much.

I reckon it's the equivalent of getting about 2000 kills in GoW 1. (based on average of 1 kill a round)

tuxedodave 09-04-2008 02:41 PM

i think the achievements in this sequel are pretty much the same as the 1st. Beat this mission get the achievement, find all of this get the achievement, and kill this with that. Only thing that seems hard is that survive 50 rounds horde mode. i think no matter how you set the difficulty.....50 rounds sounds a lot and the last few rounds shouldn't be too easy no matter you set it.

Rammbone 09-04-2008 07:51 PM

I just hope they have an in-game tracking system to keep track of all the kills and rounds.

happy42gilmore 09-05-2008 12:43 AM
