Welcome to Crysis 2. Crysis 2 takes place in the near future and you play as Alcatraz, a once former Marine but has now been given the Nanosuit 2.0 and told to protect New York City. During the game you'll be given powers like Stealth and Armour to help you fight a losing battle against the CELL [Humans] and the CEPH [Alien].

Overall this game shouldn't prove to difficult to get the full 1000 but may take a little while due to the multiplayer achievements. Story mode is fairly easy as it has a Game+ feature. The multiplayer is fun and something new but will take up most of your time.

Here's how the Roadmap will be laid out:
  • Story
  • Misc Story
  • Collectables
  • Multiplayer
  • Glitches
I've stated in the overview that the game can be completed in one playthrough and this is still true, but it may be recommended to do 2 to save you the trouble. The game has a Game+ feature meaning if you play through on Easy or Normal to start and complete it, you can then head over onto Supersolier with all your last game upgrades and complete it faster and with no trouble. If you want to get the achievements out the way fast, then head straight onto Supersolier as its unlocked right at the beginning.

All the difficulty achievements stack, so completing the game on Supersolier will also net you any Veteran and other difficulty achievements as you play through and the end. You'll also come across many story related achievements that cannot be missed and will just be gained as you progress through the campaign at certain spots!

Here's a list full list of the Story related achievements:
  • Can it run Crysis?
  • Foreign Contaminant
  • More than Human
  • False Prophet
  • Internal Affairs
  • Into the Abyss
  • Once a Marine, Always a Marine
  • Hung Out to Dry
  • Fire Walker
  • Dark Night of the Soul
  • Crossroads of the World
  • Theseus at Last
  • Home Stretch
Here's a full list of the Difficulty achievements:
  • Start Spreading the News
  • City That Never Sleeps
  • Evolution
  • Heart of Darkness
  • Medal of Honor
  • Men of Destiny
  • Supersoldier
For more information on each achievement, please see the guide below.

Misc Story:
During the campaign they'll be certain things you'll need to do or look out for to gain those extra achievements. A fair few of them can be gained quite early on, but some can't until a little later on in the game. These achievements simply consists of killing X amount of enemies a certain way to not getting caught on a certain part of the story.

Don't worry if you miss some of them as you can go back anytime via the level select menu and make your way back to the spot and gain the achievements.

Here's a full list of the Misc Story achievements:
  • Close Encounters
  • Fastball
  • Death Grip
  • Popcorn
  • Two Heads Are Better Than One
  • Blast Radius
  • Food for thought
  • Headhunter
  • Hole in One
  • Band of Brothers
  • Literary Agent
  • Stealth Assassin
  • Speeding Ticket
For more information on each achievement, please see the guide below.

They're multiple types of collectable in the whole campaign but only one of them is tied to an achievement and that is the Souvenirs, which you'll have to collect 18 in total. Also feel free to look out for the Dog Tags, Car Keys and E-Mails, which will only unlock bonus content in the Extras menu.

Here's the only achievement linked to the Collectables:
  • The Tourist
For the multiplayer you'll have a few achievements to gain and some of them will take up the bulk of your time. Most are simple but a few cause you to play to the top ranks and one even to play the game 6 months later!

Some of the achievements can be boosted, but none can be gained via the clock change cheat or a Private Match.

Here's a full list of the Multiplayer achievements:
  • Crysis, What Crysis?
  • League of Your Own
  • Dressed to Kill
  • Tooled Up
  • The Cleaner
  • Cry Spy
  • Jack of all Trades
  • Dedication
  • Modern Art
  • Try Me
  • The Collector
  • Maximum Module
  • Team Player
  • Nomad
  • I Am Not A Number
For more information on each achievement, please see the guide below.

There seems to be a few glitchy achievements at the moment - Tooled Up, Start Spreading the News & Dedication.

Tooled Up: There seems to be a bug going around that even though you've brought all the weapons, the achievement doesn't unlock. No one really knows what's causing it and some people don't encounter anything, but here's some ways that might fix it.

Perks do not count towards this achievement plus using the level up code with the LE game may or may not effect your outcome. Some people state that this does effect it while others say that you need to buy the guns in order, but the truth is it could be both or any of them. If by any chance you've brought everything and the achievement hasn't unlocked, you may need to either play a few more games for it to register or get to level 50 and prestige. But before you prestige make sure you have brought everything. The last alternative that may fix it is to equip everything from each gun its attachments.

Above are just ideas I'm throwing about to save you from really doing the levelling up grind all over again. If none of these methods work, then you have 2 choices. Level up to rank 45 again and buy everything again or wait for a possible patch from Crytek.

Start Spreading the News: For some reason if you play on Supersoldier as your first playthrough, you'll unlock everything difficulty wise bar this achievement. The only way to fix this is to select the first mission again once you've completed the game and play through quickly on Easy. It shouldn't take you more that 2-3 hours if you stealth/skip past everything when possible!

I recommend you follow the Supersoldier tips I've given below to make it go extremely fast. I personally completed Supersoldier as a 2nd playthrough in about 2 1/2 hours, so on easy it should be a lot less!

Dedication: This achievement is pretty screwed to put it bluntly. The achievement is supposed to unlock 6 months after your first play online. Day and times do not matter, just the month. People are now logging on and playing an online game but the achievement is not unlocking, and people are now into their 7th month after their original game and it's still not popped.

There is not defined way to unlock this, and from what I've read it's either pure luck or you'll just have to try every new month. Hopefully Crytek and EA will fix this issue!

Overall the game is fairly simple and shouldn't cause you any heart ache in achieving the full 100%. The only things that may take time are some of the multiplayer achievement but if you keep on top of it all, you should be good to go!
