Way to Go, Garri-Son - 20
Finish all the Garrisons

Garrisons are essentially small enemy-occupied outposts around the island that act as safe houses and fast travel points once they are liberated. There are a total 13 garrisons on the island that must be captured. While there are multiple strategies to eliminating the enemy opposition within each garrison, it is best to approach each outpost quietly with a bow. Make sure to use your throwing dice to distract enemies, and chain any takedowns if the enemies are clustered together.

Once the enemies have spotted you they will call in for reinforcements, which can prove to be a burden. In order to prevent the potential for any reinforcements arriving at the scene, be sure to disable the alarm system within each outpost. These alarms are noted on your mini-map as a speaker icon.

Kill Them All - 20
Finish all the Predator's Path Quests

After taking out all the Omega Forces within a garrison, the Predator’s Path side quest will be available at a nearby console. Simply accept the quest and follow the waypoint to the designated area. Some of these quests will require you to pick up a specific weapon first, and then proceed to an open area where you can find your target.

The target will either be a wild animal or an Omega Force soldier. Always try to take on these quests slowly and eliminate your target from a distance with little to no commotion. Once you complete all 8 quests, the achievement will unlock.

Nice Like Jesus - 5
Finish all the Hostages Situations

After taking out the Omega Forces within a garrison, these Hostage Situations will also be available as a side quest. For these missions, you must follow the marker on the map to a secure location where a half a dozen guards are holding a scientist captive.

Your goal is to take out all the guards and rescue the scientist. However, you will need to do this as silently as possible, as the guards will kill the hostage quickly if they spot you. Throwing dice and the bow will be extremely useful during these side quests. Once you complete all 8 quests, the achievement will unlock.

Murder Nature - 30
Kill all the Animal Types

Around the island, you will stumble upon a multitude of wild species. In total, there are 12 different animals to look out for:
  • Black/White Tiger
  • Blood Dragon
  • Boar
  • Cyber Panther
  • Cyber Shark
  • Devil Goat
  • Mutant Buffalo
  • Mutated Cassowary
  • Mutated Turtles
  • Robo Crocodile
  • Robo Dog
  • Neon Snake
You should be able to find each animal without a problem, as you will be exploring the entire island through the main quests, side quests, and while recovering collectibles. Plus, you can always set waypoints to their location since their location is noted as a small icon on the world map. Many of these animals will be taken care of through the Predator Path quests, so do not worry about missing any. Take note however, that snakes are the only animal that do not appear on the world map. They are usually found slithering around the ruins where TV Sets are located. You can also try setting a waypoint to X:541.8, Y:484.6; this will bring you to a section of the island where snakes almost always spawn. You can find them off the main roadway in the tall grass.

Set Them Free - 5
Destroy 5 Braincages

As you progress through the main storyline, you will come across calm Dragons with red boxes around their heads, known as "brain cages." These brainwashed Dragons are timid and do not react to Cyber Hearts as the wild Dragons do. In order to destroy their Braincage, you will want to try to sneak up on them and then either throw an explosive near it, or shoot the red box on its head. After dishing out a minimal amount of damage, the Braincage will fall off, the dragon will become wild, turn bright red and attack. Simply destroy a total of 5 Braincgaes and the achievement is yours.

Just the Tip - 15
Kill a Dragon with the Bow

This achievement can be extremely frustrating, but there is one method that should make it a lot easier. First of all, you want to find a garrison that you have not yet liberated, with a Blood Dragon nearby. Now, you'll want to go inside the garrison to disable the barrier. Once you do this, start throwing Cyber Hearts into the garrison to attract the Blood Dragon into the base where it will begin to attack all the enemies, thus clearing the outpost for you. However, once it does clear all the enemies, the garrison will not be liberated until the Blood Dragon is killed, and this is where you'll want to get your achievement.

At this point, make sure you fill up on ammo and have a bow equipped, which shouldn't be a problem because you are in a base with a vendor. Take down as much of the remaining health of the dragon using C400 and grenades, until there is almost nothing left. Using your bow, you will need to shoot the Dragon in the chest, where it is vulnerable. This can take some patience, so just make sure to heal yourself when necessary and restock ammo if you need it. Eventually, you'll hit it in the chest, taking away its remaining health to kill it and unlock this achievement.


Blood Dragon Down - 20
Kill Your First Dragon

See “Dragon Slayer” for more information.

Dragon Slayer - 20
Kill 25 Dragons

Whenever you come across a wild Blood Dragon, simply kill it by any means. The Dragons appear less frequently around the island post game, so it is suggested to work on this achievement right away after liberating the first garrison.

A great method to killing these Blood Dragons is to camp out near a liberated garrison. The Blood Dragon will not be able to enter if the force field is up, but you will be able to damage it with explosives and gunfire from inside. Another great reason this tactic works best, is because it allows you to constantly refill your inventory (grenades, mines, ammo) once you are running low on firepower.

If you have already beaten the main storyline, the Blood Dragons will spawn less frequently; however, you can follow this method below to boost the remaining Dragon kills.
  1. From the Main Menu, select "Campaign" then "Continue."
  2. Fast travel to the garrison located at X: 521.7, Y: 466.6.
  3. After spawning, exit the door to your right and proceed up the hill to the left.
  4. Throw a Cyber Heart, which will spawn a Blood Dragon.
  5. Kill the Dragon any way you want, although the Killstar is definitely recommended.
  6. After eliminating the Dragon, pause your game, and select "Save Game."
  7. After saving, press to exit to the Main Menu.
  8. Repeat
