Introduction:
The second set of paid Spec Ops missions takes the Spec Ops team through the most dangerous sections of Raccoon City yet, pitting them against countless Tyrants and Super Tyrants, waves of BOWs, and an entire army of USS soldiers. Thankfully, they'll get some help from some familiar faces along the way.

Playthrough:
As you play through these missions you'll unlock achievements upon completion of each, and you'll need to play through at least on mission without dying from anything, and one mission with all 3 male characters in your party. The achievement for the 5 Tyrants will come naturally, as well as the "Turrets Syndrome" achievement. The "Supernaut" achievement can only be accomplished on one level, but if done properly you can get all 3 Super Tyrants in one go. The one achievement that might be tricky is "Rocket Socket" if you don't have DLC pack one you'll need to do it online. If you do have DLC pack one, you can get a rocket in the I Now Know Why You Cry mission.

Multiplayer:
For "Delivery Specialist" you'll need to get into a Biohazard game on Dispatch, either in a regular multiplayer game, or in a private game with a friend on the other team (obviously easier the latter method).


Achievements:
Rocket Socket - 15
Kill 5 enemies with Rocket Launcher

This achievement needs to be done in the multiplayer mission Dispatch if you don't have DLC pack 1. If you do have DLC pack 1, load up I Now Know Why You Cry. You can find the rocket launcher in the back of the room you need to C4 to enter, and also in the hands of one of the USS guys at the end of the Foundry area, just before Nemesis spawns. There are some pretty huge groups of enemies after the C4 door so you should be able to get this in one run if you aim the rocket launcher to take out multiple enemies at once.

Bigger They Are - 20
Complete Longest Yard

Story related, unmissable.

Birth of An Abomination - 20
Complete Root of All Evil

Story related, unmissable.

Derailed - 20
Complete The Places We're Meant to Die

Story related, unmissable.

Tyranical - 15
5 Tyrants Slain

Playing through all of the DLC missions will net you this no problem. Also, repeating The Places We're Meant to Die while turning as few of the enemy Tyrants into Super Tyrants will make this much easier for you. Although if you did everything in order, you will get this achievement when you kill the first Tyrant in that level.

Delivery Specialist - 50
Deliver all 5 virus samples for your team in Dispatch's Biohazard Mode

You'll need to set the quick match settings to DLC pack 2 maps, and either play online with quick match, or one on one with a friend. Collect all 5 samples for your team to take the win will net you the achievement.

Turrets Syndrome - 20
Shut Down or Destroy 5 Turrets

Going through the DLC pack 2 missions and shutting the turrets down, or destroying them instead of bypassing them will net you this achievement. They are very obvious when you encounter them, and are shut down by a computer nearby them (marked on the map), or destroyed with grenades and other powerful weapons.

Boys Club - 30
Beat an Echo Six Expansion Pack mission with 3 male characters in your party

This can be done on any of the Spec Ops missions by playing any of the female characters, and making the three other characters on the team the male characters and then completing a mission with that setup.

Supernaut - 30
3 Super Tyrants Slain

The Super Tyrants are the red clawed Tyrants you see at the end of The Places We're Meant to Die. The key thing to note is that the standard Tyrants, the Mr. X guys, will turn into a Super Tyrant if they're hit by the rail gun that your Spec Ops commander has air dropped through the roof for you. Once you are facing a Super Tyrant, draw him away from the rail gun while it recharges, and make sure he is not in line of sight when it is charged or otherwise it will hit him again and kill him, which doesn't count for the achievement. Instead, draw him around a corner and kill him with your guns and grenades by shooting at the red spot on his chest. Once he's down, draw another Tyrant to the rail gun to be transformed, drawn away and killed by you and your team. Repeat one more time for the achievement.

Divided We Fall - 30
Complete an Echo Six Expansion mission with no human player incapacitated from death or infection

You can get this in any of the Spec Ops levels easily by making it through the mission without dying in any way. The same must be done by any people you are playing with. The AI, however, can die nonstop without voiding the achievement. Just set the game to any difficulty you feel comfortable with and play through the game as your favorite class. The achievement will pop as soon as you finish the mission without dying.
