Inspired by the grisly shootouts from Max’s past, the Painful Memories Pack will bring four new maps and much more to Max Payne 3 Multiplayer.
Revisit the subway bloodbath from the original Max Payne in the Roscoe Street Subway map. Flashback to the dingy Hoboken watering hole at Marty’s Bar, open fire on the posh Branco family yacht in Shoot First and wage Gang Wars at Canal De Panamá. The Painful Memories Pack also includes the IMG 5.56 and UAR-21 Assault Rifles, new factions and items. There is also the Hangover Burst, which causes enemies to respawn with blurred vision, reduced stamina and health.
The Painful Memories Pack is available for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE. Rockstar Pass owners of course receive it free of charge.
Step One: Bar Brawler
+ Drinker's Revenge
They can be done in the same match, in the "Marty's Bar" map. Make sure you have a loadout with the Hip Flask item equipped, and your partner with a Sniper Rifle loadout.
Step Two: Ouch My Head
It's suggested you boost this one with a 8-player lobby on the "Branco's HQ" map. Make sure you have a loadout with the Hangover Burst equipped.
Step Three: Long Arm of the Lawless
This achievement can be obtained on either the small Panama-Yacht map, or the larger Panama Canal map. This must be done in the Payne Killer game mode.
Step Four: Welcome Ashore
be done in Gang Wars. The observation deck is located south-west to the yacht, it should be be mistaken for the large, 2-story building right next to the boat.
Long Arm of the Lawless 20
Kill Max Payne in Panama as the De Marcos
This achievement is very simple but it should be noted that it must be done on either the Panama Canal map (this is the larger map where the yacht is docked), or the Panama Yacht map (the smaller map with the boat in the ocean). First, set up your Deathmatch avatar as the new De Marcos faction (that came with this DLC) from the Multiplayer Menu. Now launch a game of Payne Killer and simply kill the player who is Max Payne and the achievement is yours!
Bar Brawler 20
Kill someone with a melee strike in the Bar area of Hoboken Bar
Any game mode will work for this achievement; however, make sure you are playing on the new "Marty's Bar" map. In order to obtain the achievement, you must melee attack-kill,
, an enemy player inside the Bar area of the map.
The Bar is easily found across from the Church and has multiple entrances. If you are boosting, simply ask your partner to meet you inside the bar and make sure to melee strike them in front of the bar counter.
Ouch My Head 25
Headshot someone with a Hangover
This achievement's description is quite confusing, as one would think you would have to be the one who is hungover while getting a kill.
That's not the case. All you must do is kill an enemy player who is effected by your Hangover Burst. Be sure to get your Burst meter to Level 3. A Level 3 Hangover will cause enemies to spawn with little stamina and low health for about 10-15 seconds.
It is suggested that this achievement be boosted with a full 8-player lobby, because it is likely that an enemy will hold back until their Hangover wears off in a legitimate match. A great map for this achievement would be "Branco HQ." Activate your Level 3 Hangover burst and kill your partner. When they spawn, communicate quickly in order to locate and kill them while the Hangover is still in effect on them.
Welcome Ashore 30
Kill a player on the yacht from the observation platform of the Panama Canal
This must be done in a Gang Wars mode and is suggested that you have a full 8-player boosting lobby and a Sniper Rifle loadout. Be aware that the observation platform is not the 2-story building immediately to the left of the yacht.
You can find the observation deck to the south-west of the yacht, past some metal catwalks. It is the single-story, white building with large glass windows.
Have your partner(s) on the enemy team stand on the front of the yacht while you position yourself inside the observation platform. Melee the windows and follow up with a direct headshot from your Sniper Rifle. The achievement will pop as soon as you kill one of the enemy players on the yacht.
Drinker's Revenge 30
Kill the sniper who broke your Hip Flask in the same life
The Hip Flask item protects the user from a single Sniper Rifle round. With that said, equip this item to one of your loadouts and make sure your partner(s) have a loadout with a Sniper Rifle.
Have them shoot you in the torso, preferably at close range. The Hip Flask will save your life, allowing you to terminate your partner and earn the achievement!
