Welcome to Joe's Adventures! The second and final DLC add-on for Mafia II. The achievements in this DLC are a majority of story related achievements, and thus cannot be missed. There is only 1 achievement that I have deemed missable, which is 'Arctic Grave'. This is obtained by killing a certain person by pushing them into a frozen lake, but there are other means with which to kill this person, so you could miss this achievement. The remaining achievements can be earned in free roam and thus, can be earned at any time.

Step 1: Story
First you should complete the story of this DLC. You will earn at least 5 achievements just for doing this, as they are the story related achievements that cannot be missed. You may consider consulting the guide for tips on unlocking any other achievements that may be easier obtained during missions, as opposed to during free roam. These may include the aforementioned 'Arctic Grave' and 'Jack of all Trades'. These can only be earned during missions, but whereas 'Arctic Grave' can only be earned on a certain mission, 'Jack of all Trades' can be earned on any mission.

Step 2: Clean up
After completing the story, you may have some achievements left over, that are perhaps easier to obtain in free roam. These will likely include, 'Hypersonic', 'Jacked Jumper' and 'Driftin' Daddy-O'. These are all obtained by performing certain stunts in a vehicle. 'Hypersonic' can be obtained during a certain mission, where you will find the fastest car in the game, so consult the guide for further information on this. The other 2 achievements will be better done during free roam were you will not be disturbed by enemies.

So a relatively easy set of achievements, that are earned through a very fun and entertaining DLC. You should not have any problems unlocking these achievements as they are all straight forward. If you do have any problems, you will find a clear answer within the guide, below.
