Iron Man 2 Achievement Guide and Roadmap

Overview
Estimated achievement difficulty: 4/10
Estimated time for 1000: 4-6 hours.
Minimum playthroughs: 1
Missable achievements: None
Glitched achievements: None
Offline: 50
Online: 0
Do Cheat's disable achievements: No cheats

Road Map

Introduction
Iron Man 2 is a very easy and shockingly quick 1000 gamerscore, much easier than the original game. Thanks to the game allowing you to replay any mission on any difficulty, there is nothing that is missable. Your first aim for an easier ride should be to plump for 2 playthroughs and do your first run on easy. You can do everything in just one, but without upgrades, formidable is quite daunting. With them, it is a joke. Also, by playing on easy, you should net a huge amount of points after each level, guaranteeing you will unlock all the extra suits. As well as these suits, you should be able to gain most of the mission specific achievements as they are very straightforward to gain on easy.

Abbreviated Walkthrough
So, start off on easy and just play through the 8 levels in turn. This should only take 2 hours tops and by the end you should have a solid grip on the game as well as most of it's achievements. Follow the guide to see which level's have achievements tied to them and make sure to replay the appropriate levels as War Machine to earn those achievements. You should have unlocked all suits and have a multitude of points to spend on upgrades. Don't be shy, spend them all. Upgrading War Machine's machine guns and getting the damage modules should be your primary concerns as these will make your formidable run very straightforward. Now simply mop up any achievements you have left on easy then replay each mission on formidable (press start at the headquarters screen and change it there. Don't start a new game else you lose all upgrades). This should take another 90 minutes or so and with all the upgrades to your loadout, should not pose any problem to most gamers.

Once your formidable playthrough is done, simply load the Protean level and play through till you reach the laser tripwires section. Simply set them all off on the descent and you can happily grind all the weapons and kills achievements you have left to gain. Once you kill the 8 wall mounted turrets shortly after this section, a checkpoint will appear. Now simply return to headquarters and replay the same section. All your kills are saved by that checkpoint so you can really go to town on clearing your last achievements here.

Conclusion
And there you have it. A very quick and easy 1000 points. Hope the roadmap was helpful.

Access Denied 10
Prevent Roxxon from stealing the Stark Archives.

This is story related and comes after finishing the first mission. Simply defend the tower from the drones till the cutscene kicks in. This level serves as a tutorial mainly to familiarise you with the control setup.

Deportation 15
Prevent the Russian separatists from deploying Roxxon Armigers.

This is also story related and unlocks after finishing mission 2. It also features your first fight with an Armiger. Simple to defeat, just shoot the beastie till it raises it's turrets and then destroy as many as possible. Once they retract, continue firing, also making sure to deflect the missiles back for some bonus damage.

Power Outage 15
Defeat the Crimson Dynamo.

Story related. To defeat Crimson Dynamo, destroy the 3 target points on the main tower structure in the centre of the screen which Dynamo draws power from. Once that is done, lay into him with your weapons. When he rises into the air to draw power, get ready to dodge to the side as he shoots a nasty beam at you which does a lot of damage on higher difficulties. Keep chipping away till the cutscene and then just fire a few more shots to finish the job. Keeping your distance is advised during this fight.

Anti-PROTEAN 20
Destroy Project PROTEAN.

This is earned for defeating the Protean boss. Very simple. Start off by charging all 3 power outlets in the room. Once this
s done, shoot the Protean till he turns green and goes into his health regen state. As soon as you see this, dash / fly into the adjacent room and operate the computer. This seals the doors and fries the big guy. You need to quite quick but if you mess up simply shoot at him again and retry.

Improvisation Under Fire 20
Save Rhodey and the Stark mobile armory from the A.I.M. attack.

This is earned for finishing the 5th mission after protecting the S.H.I.E.L.D helicarrier the first time. Be on your toes to kill the enemies as quickly as possible here, utilizing the grapple attack is needed to turn the enemies onto your side. You will fight various waves of enemies attacking the engines and Tony's jet. After killing the last lot the level ends.

Operation Daybreak 20
Defeat A.I.M. and save the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.

Story related. This comes after protecting the helicarrier from the armiger. On easy this level is fine, but on formidable it can be daunting. Make sure to load up on upgrades to your guns and equip them with armour piercing rounds and the highest damage module. You will then destroy the armiger so fast it'll make your eyes bleed.

Stormbreaker 20
Shut down the GREENGRID power transmitter.

You get this one after shutting down the power transmitter. You face a lengthy escort mission on this level but it is very easy with a few tips. On harder difficulties, stay back and near the Arc Armiger. It can take a royal pounding, you can't. Even if it gets damaged badly, you can simply repair it and off it goes again. Make sure to mark targets for the armiger to shoot and prioritise the turrets as they are the biggest threat. Just take it steady and repair the armiger as and when needed and you will find this level totally managable on formidable.

The Bigger They Are 30
Deafeat ULTIMO

This is the final boss fight and can be a little frustrating. When outside as War Machine, you need to shoot the panels on his body till you see the B button prompt. Fly in and tear it off. After taking off enough, you play as Iron Man inside the huge robot. For the protean ultimo inside, simply keep dodging and blast him with rockets. When he stops attacking and releases the 3 orbs, fly up and target each one as it is spinning and fire a rocket at it. When all 3 are down, you go back to War Machine. Repeat the same pattern till you play as Iron Man again. This time, after killing the 3 orbs, you will need to lay the final smackdown on ultimo. You once again play as War Machine and simply have to shoot giant Ultimo's head till he's dead.

Shake It Off 3
Recover from the Roxxon EMP attack.

This will be your first achievement and is gained after leaving Stark Tower on the first mission.

Not In My House 15
Prevent the first wave of Roxxon dropships from deploying their drones.

As you leave the tower on the first level, you will see a dropship directly ahead of you. Fly towards it quickly and shoot it down. Now turn around and head back towards the tower and blow up the dropships that appear. Shortly after the achievement will pop. If you see any drones appear before the achievement pops, reload your checkpoint.

Full Flight 15
Only one S.H.I.E.L.D. transport lost in the canyon run.

Firstly, remember, you will always lose one gunship during the second level, this is unavoidable. You start with 6 ships so you need to have the remaining 5 ships alive when you reach the tunnel at the end. You may get this on your first run through but it's a lot easier to accomplish with some upgrades under your belt. Swift killing is obviously the key, making sure you kill anything firing missiles as priority.

Area Secured 20
At least 10 S.H.I.E.L.D. units survive the battle for the docks.

After emerging from the tunnel on stage 2, you will be in a dock area. Simply wipe out all enemy opposition here while preserving the S.H.I.E.L.D units. I got this without even knowing so it's very easy to obtain. Just kill quickly and you'll be fine.

Pulling The Plug 15
Destroy all four Tesla reactor stabilizers in under 60 seconds.

On mission 3, inside Shatalov's base, you will need to destroy 4 Tesla cores in a room to proceed (just before you fly out of the base). Just concentrate on taking all 4 out as soon as the message appears on screen and you will be fine. If you fail, reload checkpoint before heading through the door.

Anger Management 15
Destroy most of the structures in Shatalov's base.

As you emerge from the tunnel on mission 3, you will be told to, "Access the facility subnet". You will see a number of marked buildings. Make sure you destroy all of the building's roof's so no panels remain. Then destroy all the fuel silo's and small buildings. This should ensure you get the achievement. It may take a while to pop but if you do as stated above you will get it.

Entrapment 15
Reach the bottom of the elevator shaft without touching a laser tripline.

This looks very daunting but is really straightforward. On the Protean level, after hacking the second computer, you will set off a load of laser tripwires inside the shaft you need to go down. Just hug the side of the shaft and decellerate down carefully and you will get this easily. If you set any off, just reload checkpoint and try again.

Defensive Player Of The Year 20
Save all four repulsor lifts and all four stabilizers on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.

On the 5th mission, just be sure to kill all enemies as quickly as possible. I almost always lost an engine on formidable so this is best attempted on your easy playthrough. You will be dashing between the engines and the jet on top of the carrier. If you need some help, don't forget you can grapple damaged enemies to turn them to your side. This can buy you some time when things look grim but isn't really necessary.

Brute Force 30
Destroy the A.I.M. Arc Armiger without using missile deflection.

On the 6th mission, simply destroy the armiger without deflecting any missiles. Just keep your finger clear of the B button and you will be fine. With upgrades to your ammo and a nice damage module, you'll tear through the armiger in no time. Just be sure to quickly kill it's repair drones to ensure it doesn't regenerate.

Guardian 25
Shut down GREENGRID without needing to repair the Arc Armiger.

On easy, this one is a doddle. When escorting the Arc Armiger, just make sure to target and take out all the missile turrets ASAP. It will be advantageous to spend some points on upgrades just to ensure you are doling out good damage, thus reducing the impact on the armiger.

Switchboard Operator 20
Reposition all of the GREENGRID relays without being interrupted.

This one is obtained at the end of the 7th mission. Simply reposition the relays without being hit during the button prompt sequence. First off, destroy all the surrounding turret. Then, shoot the core to raise the relay terminals and fly over to the first one. Make sure you kill any enemies you see and then mash the B button till it is complete. Repeat for the other 2 relays. You can do each of them one at a time to be on the safe side. Just make sure you're not hit while doing the button mashing.

Not A Scratch 40
Defeat ULTIMO with no armor damage.

Ok, this achievement reads like you can't take ANY damage at all on the Ultimo fight but this is not true. Don't worry about damage during the War Machine sections as these are fine. It's when you fight as Iron Man you need to be vigilant. Just make sure that Protean Ultimo never hits you once. The spinning orbs are ok but Ultimo must not hit you once. Thankfully, he is a doddle to keep dodging around so this is actually a very easy achievement on any difficulty setting.

Ultimatum 15
Complete every mission on Easy difficulty.

See 'Invincible'

Iron Man 30
Complete every mission on Normal difficulty.

See 'Invincible'

Invincible 100
Complete every mission on Formidable difficulty.

Not as difficult as it may sound or appear to be. In fact, once you have upgrades and a feel for the game, you will almost not notice the difficulty setting as you will be killing so fast. You do die a lot faster, with some enemies killing you in as little as 2 hits and bosses in 1 hit. My personal setup for Formidable was War Machine with 2 machine guns equipped with armour piercing bullets and the Ultimate module. His damage output with these is insane and shreds everything to bits. If Iron Man is more your cup of tea, you'll want a similar setup but opt for lasers in place of the machine guns. Just kill fast and make sure to land and recoup your shields if you are running low and you will breeze through.

To keep all your upgrades and finish the game on formidable, simply press Start at the headquarters screen and change the difficulty from there then replay the missions in any order. As long as you do all 8 on formidable, the achievement will pop. Make sure not to start a new game as this will leave you with zero upgrades which is not good.

Fists of Iron 20
Defeat 100 enemies in close combat.

See 'Overkill'

FStorm of Lead 20
Defeat 100 enemies War Machine's minigun.

See 'Overkill'

Fire and Forget 10
Defeat 100 enemies with homing missiles.

See 'Overkill'

Subtle Like a Rocket 15
Defeat 100 enemies with the rocket launcher.

See 'Overkill'

Room Broom 20
Defeat 100 enemies with War Machine's shotgun.

See 'Overkill'

Extra Crispy 20
Defeat 100 enemies with Iron Man's laser.

See 'Overkill'

Pushback 20
Defeat 100 enemies with Iron Man's repulsor.

See 'Overkill'

Up Close And Personal 20
Defeat 100 enemies with Iron Man's Blaster.

See 'Overkill'

Overkill 20
Defeat 100 enemies with Iron Man's unibeam.

All of these weapon achievements can be easily and quickly earned on mission 4 where you destroy the Protean. Simply hack the first 2 computers and then descend the shaft making sure you set off all 3 layers of the lasers. This will summon 3 waves of drones. Kill these with the desired weapon and then proceed through the doors. Kill the drones and 2 robots and then shoot the 8 wall mounted turrets. As soon as you see that the game has checkpointed, you are safe to back out to headquarters. From here, simply replay that part of the mission and all your kills will have counted making this the best place to grind for them.

Thanks go to Dead Herb for his post on this location.

Armors 35
Unlock all armor suits.

You unlock suits at the end of missions if you scored well. To ensure a high score, make sure you take as little damage as possible and shoot down as many enemies as you can. Also, keeping allies alive and protecting friendly structures add to your score. You are almost guaranteed this at the end of your easy playthrough. If you do happen to be missing a suit, simply check the corresponding achievement in the guide to see which level it is gained on and replay on easy.

Technical Genius 50
Invent every module, ammunition, and weapon upgrade.

At first, it will seem like you're not earning near enough points to get this. However, bear in mind the final mission can net upwards of 40 million points. I really didn't have to grind at all for this. I had enough after completing my easy playthrough and a few levels on formidable. You do all upgrading from the research tab in your headquarters.

Gonna Need Some More Bad Guys 30
Defeat more than 1,000 enemies.

This will easily come from playing the game so don't go out of your way to worry about it. You'll probably kill double that amount before you're through with all the weapon achievements.

Unnecessary Force 7
Defeat a soldier with Iron Man's unibeam.

Earliest opportunity to get this is on the second level as you emerge at the docks. You will see a couple of soldiers on the ground next to a tank. Simply hit the soliders with the unibeam (LT + RT) and this will unlock.

Bulletproof 30
Defeat 50 enemies in melee as Iron Man while Invincible.

See 'Overkill'

that is bang on,i used your war machine setup and went through formidable in about 1hr 30mins,only difference i could see was that Ultimo mission 8 took a little bit longer to kill and the double miniguns,the amount of damage war machine was doing is just stupid,he obliterates everything.

cheers for the tip.

It'd be nice if in the descriptions for weapon kills instead of just mentioning where you can get them, maybe how to use them? Which ones are assigned to what trigger, which ones must be switched out for other weapons, etc. Also, if you have to beat many of the levels with both Iron Man and War Machine, shouldn't someone just play through as Iron Man first on easy, then on Hard with War Machine (besides the few levels you cannot be War Machine). I know this is supposed to be an easy game, but it's nice to have all of those questions answered in the guide. It's nice to be descriptive even on obvious things. Not trying to be a jerk or anything, I'm just saying it could have some additional information to make it easier on some people

Also, on Anger Management, that could really be touched up. Say level 3, after escaping the vent. Since you said tunnel, I had kept that mental note and was doing it on level 2. It'd also be nice to explain the enemies count towards this achievement, so destroying everything before the subnet won't guarantee the achievement because you have to kill the enemies who spawn after. Big mistake on hard, as dying resets the building conditions.

Save all four repulsor lifts and all four stabilizers on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.


I just got it (french version of the game), but scored 20G for it.
Bug, or error?

Talking 'Not A Scratch" Achievemnet

Not A Scratch 40
Defeat ULTIMO with no armor damage.

You can take damage during the Ultimo fight, You just can't take ARMOR damage. You armor is displayed in the lower left corner of the screen. It is the little while bars that make a circle. You have a blue ring that surrounds the white bars. this blue ring is your shield (it regenerates in a few seconds if hit)*just like HALO*. As long as you do not lose all of the blue ring, you can get this achievement. also, if you have managed to get to a checkpoint without losing any armor, pause and click "save at last checkpoint " if you accidentally lose some armor, just load from that checkpoint, also, this trick works for getting the extra iron man armor(you get a new iron man armor if you make it through a level with out dieing)

Can you clear up an issue for most of us.
When we finish the game on easy and get all our upgrades are we supposed to start a new campaign? Or can we just change the difficulty to hard and replay all levels from the menu screen.

some games in the past have not let you go back and replay individual missions for difficulty related achievements.

there is nothing mentioned about it in this guide.

some games in the past have not let you go back and replay individual missions for difficulty related achievements.

there is nothing mentioned about it in this guide.
From the Roadmap mate :-

"Now simply mop up any achievements you have left on easy then replay each mission on formidable (press start at the headquarters screen and change it there. Don't start a new game else you lose all upgrades)."

I made sure to put it in cause it's not made obvious that you can change it this way and restarting is obviously not the way to go as you lose all upgrades.

You know why I didn't see it? because instead of reading the road map properly I went to the invincible description and didn't see anything there. Maybe add that part to the invincible achievement description too.

But then again if people read the road map properly they would already know this. :P Well it doesnt hurt to list it twice in case people just skim over the roadmap like me.

By the way Ive been following the guide and its perfect no mistakes so far. Very good.

Answered every question I had and then some, this would have been a pain-in-the-butt 1k without this!

Good guide, very helpful! Not to sound arrogant, but I'm not sure why some people were having trouble beating this on formidable, with max upgrades it was relatively easy.

Is this for real?

All I have left is the Invincible (formidable difficulty) achievement.
