Hi guys, this is the first time i'm submitting a guide for a game. Hope people find it useful. If you find anything wrong or a better way to get the achievements let me know and i will edit the guide.
Elite PMC 50
Complete all missions as a Professional.
Professional only unlocks after beating the game at least once on either Recruit or Contractor difficulty. Enemies hit harder and there's much less time for your partner to revive you when you are down. NOTE: You can go to Mission Select and play each mission on Professional out of order and it will still unlock.
-All Primary Weapons unlock after your first playthrough so save your money for upgrading the firepower of your favourite guns. The Dao-X kills most enemies with 2 shots and also knocks down even heavy armored guards at mid to close range.
-Play slow and clear out all enemies before advancing (the majority of the the enemies in every area are finite, so you will eventually kill all of them)
-You can unlock this with either the AI or a co-op partner.
My Virtual Friend 35
Complete all missions with the Partner AI.
Complete all 6 missions with the AI as your partner on any difficulty.
Weapon Specialist 15
Purchase 3 weapons.
You can buy any 3 weapons in the mid-mission shopping or just complete the game on any difficulty to get this achievement as all primary weapons will unlock.
Say Hello to my Little Friends 45
Purchase the MP7, M134, DAO-X Protecta, MGL MK-X, and the M107 Light Fifty.
After completing the game on any difficulty, all primary weapons are unlocked so you can save money on 3 of the 5 guns (M134, DAO-X and MGL MK-X). Just purchase the remaining two guns (MP7 under 'Secondary Weapons' and M107 Light Fifty under 'Special Weapons') to get the achievement
Complete the game on Professional to unlock every weapon and the achievement.
Man of Many Masks 50
Purchase every mask variant.
You will need $110,000 for this. Purchase all masks for one character to get this. Make sure you have enough to buy all the masks and once the achievement unlocks, power off your X360 and boot the game up again. You'll have both the achievement and your money intact.
If I Were a Rich Man 40
Earn one million dollars in total over the course of campaign mode.
This can be earned throughout the course of 3+ playthroughs of the game. (Note: Objective rewards are the same throughout difficulties) A complete playthrough is worth $395,000 if you collect all briefcases and complete all bonus objectives. Assuming you have already collected all briefcases in the 1st playthrough, the 2nd time you can only earn $288,500 max. 3 playthroughs will therefore net you $972,000. You can spend money you earn as the game tracks your total earned, and not what you currently have.
Most of the sub-objectives are pretty straightforward except for one in China where you are asked to take down the first Chinook. Preparation is needed beforehand:
You need either the RPG or Stinger (FIM92). I recommend the Stinger because despite the damage chart, it does more damage than the RPG (2 shots to take down the Chinook instead of 3 RPGs), it comes with 3 ammo by default and it has lock on. The only con is that it cost nearly 5x more.
Once you dock at the dam, enter mid-mission shopping if you haven't already and equip/buy the Stinger ($42,500). Throw the first control switch and clear out all the enemies first before moving the hovercraft in. After climbing up the ladder, clear out any remaining enemies again. Once you throw the 2nd control switch, the Chinook comes flying in across the dam. Lock on and take it down with 2 missiles before it flies off.
Go to Mission Select once you've completed the game and choose level China and complete the first objective (Blow up the bridge the convoy is passing over), run back to the hovercraft at the bottom to trigger the checkpoint (else the money won't be credited) and then quit the game. It takes less than 2 minutes and it's worth $30,000. You can rinse and repeat till you get 1 million.
Fear is The Mind Killer 45
Spend 1 minute straight at full Aggro.
You can get this at the first turret at the game's tutorial area in Somalia. You have unlimited bullets so just hide behind cover at the turret and blind fire till you get the achievement.

Two Eyes are Better Than One 35
Kill 5 enemies total using Co-op Snipe.
This can be done as early as Somalia, after killing Mo'Alim, you are asked to clear out the street so the chopper can land. Clyde will hint to you that you should use Co-op snipe to take out the gas tank. Don't. Get into a good position near the back of the street and enter co-op snipe. Take out 5 guards to get the achievement. Do not press 'B' to cancel out of it as you cannot enter back into Co-op snipe mode after that.
