Yes, the pistol trick work
- I got it 2 days ago, now I have 990/1000 and the last 10 I will get after 2 weeks
Nearly there 25
Find 120 collectibles.
There are actually a total of 140 collectibles in the game (hence you're "nearly there"), though this is the max you'll need achievement-wise. Anything labeled as a Fact, ID Card, Recording, etc. will count toward this. Weapon mods and blueprints do as well.
One small trick to this though: collectibles are counted multiple times for each save file. You could technically pick up the first one in 120 different games if you wanted. So you don't need to worry about this one really.
...total 140? Hmm...I actualy find 156 (and I will have a video up in a few minutes).
And I think there is a total of 160 - I did not use any guides, I just explore every part of the game
brb with the video.
