Achievement Guide



This guide will help you get the Mirror's Edge achievements. Have fun and overall enjoy this awesome freerunning game!

Overview
+Estimated achievement difficulty: 8/10
+ Offline: 44
+ Online: None
+ Approximate time: 25-30 hours
+ Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 3
+ Glitched achievements: None
+ Cheats: No Cheats

If you want all the achievements in just 3 playthroughs use this strategy:
Playthrough 1: You can get 715gs in your first run if you do all the tricks, find all the bags and don't shoot an enemy. You can complete the story mode in about 4-6 hours depending on your playstyle.
Playthrough 2: Now you've finished the game and unlocked the hard difficulty. If you complete the game on hard you'll get the pro runner achievement worth 80 gamerscore. You can finish the game pretty quick because you know the way and you're able to shoot enemies so this take about 3-5 hours.
Playthrough 3: Not really a playthrough but you need to finish the chapters under a time limit. The speedrun's are worth 10g each so all together will give you 100gs. Speedrun's are very hard and depending on your skills this will take most of your time, about 10-15 hours.

Time trials: And at last the time trials wich will take you 5-7 hours also depending on your skill. They are not that hard and if you practice them you get the time trial achievements worth 105gs pretty easy.

Vrooom! 40
Maintain sprint speed for 30 seconds.

In Chapter 6, checkpoint D, after the sequence about Project Ikarus, you need to escape from the guys who came in the elevator. As soon you have control of Faith, just run in circles around the base you need to climb. The area is large enough to maintain speed. You need maintain 30 seconds in full speed. Try not to do edgy corners, try to stay in the same direction, doing the corners softly. Stop running when you think you hit 30 seconds. The achievement will pop up if you stop.


Up, over, under, onwards 25
String together the following: jump, coil (over obstacle), slide (under obstacle)

Easy done in Prologue. Start checkpoint A and the first fence you jump () over you can coil up and then carry on holding down and slide under the pipes.

Free flowing 25
String together the following: wallrun, jump, speedvault

Run towards an wall and press at the right moment, then press and again and speedvault. A speedvault is when you hurdle a mid-height obstacle perfectly, which makes you gain speed. To do this press to vault an object thats in your path.
Easy to do is the tutorial: When crossed the pipe you see a small building. Instead of climbing on it wallrun the wall on the right and jump on the ledge. You'll have more than enough height to do a speedvault.



May I have this dance? 30
String together the following: wallrun, turn, jump, wallclimb, turn, jump

Press to start wallrunning next to a wall, then press to turn, again to jump towards an edge. Press when climbing on the wall followed by one more time and this achievement will pop up.
Done in Prologue: The 2 buildings you're after is the one where you have to cross the pipe and the one right next to it, run up towards the left wall and start a wallrun, quickly do a 180, jump again, another 180 then jump and you should be on top of the pipe building and 30 points better off.

aaaand safe! 30 String together the following: wallrun, jump, coil (over obstacle), skill roll

Press to start wallrunning and again to jump. Press when in the air to coil over an obstacle and finally again to roll and achievement unlocked. A good place to do this is Playground two in time trial mode. Go to the second checkpoint and look right of you for an orange stair. Now go a little bit forward (keeping the stair right) and you'll see some wood right next to the building left of you. In front of that wood there's a fence with a wire. Now go back a bit, make a run to the plank, on the end of the plank press and jump toward the building (you'll be wallrunning now), when almost at the fence press again (timing is important) and quickly press and again to skill roll.


Head over heels 20
Complete a chapter of the game without ending up in a heavy landing

Easiest done in Prologue (training doesnt count) try pressing right before you land from a high distance. Faith will do a skill roll and don’t take any damage.
Be carefull: when droping down from the vents (first encounter with enemies) make a skill roll!!! Otherwise youll get hit and this counts as a heavy landing.


Untouchable 15
Complete a chapter without getting shot

Easiest done in Prologue. There are 2 enemies that you'll encounter. At the First enemy, Try jumping () and press (kicking) at the right moment so that you bodysmash him to the ground

Test of Faith 80
Complete the game without shooting an enemy

Easiest done on easy difficulty. Just melee opponents () or disarm () them. When disarmed throw away there weapon with . Note that the achievement says never shoot an enemy so you can shoot a gun but don't hit an enemy. If you wanna be sure just never press when wielding a weapon and you’ll be fine. To check your progess press and if the text '' So far, you have not fired a shot at anyone'' appears at the top right you're doing good.

Great guide, really helped. I haven't read through all the posts, but I got the Sweet Goodbye, just by testing the move before I went to any cops. As long as the fingers go up, I guess you get it.

As long as you're facing an enemy, yes, you will get it. I tried at the very beginning of the level, with no one around, didn't get it. Then, I tried in the first room full of cops, and got it.

Ok here's how you do this:
Select in the main menu "time trial" and then "playground two".
As soon as you start run forward and run into the first checkpoint, then take a turn left and jump over the fence run toward the white box and jump on them so that you make it to the other building (actually it doesn't mather how you do it just jump to that building).
On that building make a turn left so that you see the second checkpoint and jump to it by using the wooden plank (don't forget to roll when you land).
If you followed the above you will see a orange stair to the right of you (just to make sure you're in the right place).
Forget about the stair and go a little bit forward and you'll see some kind of wood right next to the building left of you, in front of that wood there's a fence with a wire (see where I'm going )

Go back a bit, make a run to the plank, on the end of the plank press LB and jump toward the building (you'll be wallrunning now), when almost at the fence press LB again (timing is important) and quickly press LT.

Tadaaaaa another achievement for you!
Maybe there are a lot easier spots to do this but I got it this way

As it says, do "prologue-the edge",jump to the building with the blue plates, run up on a plate (the one closest to the fence),jump and quickly press LT to get over the fence and after you touch the flour press LT again close to the pipes,slide under them and achievement unlocked.
If not just jump over the fence again to the other side and keep trying, took me 2 tries
Good luck.

what you mean, will i get this achievement , till now i only disarm my enemies, is better the to shoot
A lot of people are thinking you may not fire a single shot.
There all wrong!
Just make sure you don't shoot at people and everything will be alright.
In the later levels you'll see that it's impossible to complete the game without firing a single shot (at objects).
Hope this helps.

I have been trying that for about 30 minutes now and still no luck. I can sometimes coil over but it's a 1/30 chance that i make it over. Also the fence has harmful wire on the top. Is that the one? Because i have tried about 100 times now and only managed to get over a few times.

It took me a while to realize the location lif3 was talking about, but once I got there, I got the achievement my first try. Just wallrun until you're almost at the fence, jump over the fence with a coil jump, and do a safe roll-landing with LT before you hit the ground. 30G richer!

I got mine in the storm drain in Lv2 while attempting a speed run. I can hold sprint mode for 37ish seconds. the above suggestion is a much easier place to get it, but it felt really good to get that Achi. while running for your life from snipers in choppers.

Complete a chapter of the game without ending up in a heavy landing

Easiest done in Prologue (training doesnt count) try pressing right before you land from a high distance. Faith will do a skill roll and donít take any damage.
Be carefull: when droping down from the vents (first encounter with enemies) make a skill roll!!! Otherwise youll get hit and this counts as a heavy landing.

for this one if you fall of the building it will count as a hard landing. so you'll have to go back to main menu and redo it if you should fall.


Untouchable 15
Complete a chapter without getting shot

Easiest done in Prologue. There are 2 enemies that you'll encounter. At the First enemy, Try jumping () and press (kicking) at the right moment so that you bodysmash him to the ground
(this will get you the Secret achievement ''Hey it's-a-me!'') Now move to the left to avoid the second enemies gunfires. Activate Slowmotion with and disarm him with .

if a enemy melees you with their gun its okay, just as long as they don't shoot you.

Keep trying - and try your best not to mix it up and attempt a different speedrun. Stick with one, and grind at it!

Which one is giving you trouble? Sometimes a combination of both the speedrun videos AND time trial videos help because the best shortcuts aren't always used, only a selection of them.

If you have access to the leaderboards load up the top players ghost so you can follow him and learn his shortcuts. Shaves loads off your time once you've mastered it.

HI there! question regarding TEST OF FAITH ach., in chapter6 where the snipers are all around, is it safe to shoot yellow barrels on the ground level to get rid of those gunners there? it's not shooting the enemy, just barrels, so it should count... but i do not want to ruin my "shooting-free" game but this section needs some shooting :-)

I would suggest not shooting, I think you would still be okay but if you are playing on easy like you should be, you shouldnt have to much trouble after a few tries.

I noticed for the Speed run achievements you had blanks for the times. Once you beat the game it shows you the Qualifying Times needed to get the achievement. So, I'll list 'em out.

Prologue - The Edge: Qualifying Time - 3:00:00
Chapter 1 - Flight: Qualifying Time - 6:00:00
Chapter 2 - Jacknife: Qualifying Time - 11:00:00
Chapter 3 - Heat: Qualifying Time - 8:00:00
Chapter 4 - Ropeburn: Qualifying Time - 9:00:00
Chapter 5 - New Eden: Qualifying Time - 9:00:00
Chapter 6 - Pirandello Kruger: Qualifying Time - 7:00:00
Chapter 7 - The Boat: Qualifying Time - 8:00:00
Chapter 8 - Kate: Qualifying Time - 8:00:00
Chapter 9 - The Shard: Qualifying Time - 6:00:00

Hope this helps to complete the already amazing guide. Thanks.



Also, on the bag location guide, for the Prologue the first bag you find is after you bash the door down, and have to jump on the boxes onto the shimmy bar (I guess that's what it is) and then onto the vents. The bag is located opposite the vent you crawl into, it's next to where you land. I hope that was specific enough for people to find it, the other two locations are correct, but are after this first bag. The one you throw to Celeste doesn't count for anything.

the bag that you pick up there is the bag you throw to celeste, thats why people have been saying that it is impossible to miss, as you walk over it in order to pass through the vent thats next to it
