I always thought a game could have a maximum of 50 achievements or at least close to 50 with a max of 1000 points. (without extra packs obviously) 99 achievements. Damn thats insane.

Nin...nin...ninty...ni...nine...ninty nine achievements...

At least they look good. A nice combination between story related ones and fighting ones. All in all they look like some of the best achevements so far. Although that "play online with 7 friends from your friendlist" will be sure to fill up peoples friends lists.

It kinda makes sense, it's more than a game, so I think the 50 Achievements per game rule was followed, me thinks...

Anyway, would it be possible, if anyone know, to point out which are online and which aren't ?
Thanks.

In every game it says which achievements you can get and how many % you got of them!

Hmm.. Maybe I shouldn't have cancelled my pre-order. I wasn't really into Half Life 2 that much after playing it a billion times on my crappy computer...

I guess the 360 version is exactly like the PC version, the Xbox 1 version was horrible.

I don't know about you guys but 99 achievements? Come on. Plus are they all can be done in single mode? I haven't played that much of Half life. I played the one on Xbox and for one day and wasn't that blown away.

Secret Achievment

Hi, i found a secret achievment in Half-Life 2 normal .

When you begin a new game you will meet Barney and after you jumped out off the window you will see a guard who says:" pick up the CAN and throw it in the trash".

Just pick up the can and throw it on him insteat off throwing it in the trash.

And you will earn a achievment.

NO Respect.

Any idea where the "Vorticough" achievement is? I know it's at the water Hazard but really never seem to find the singing one. Is it the one at the checkpoint or very hidden?

After you fight the helicopter and open the gate there will be a pair of sewage tunnels straight ahead. You need to enter the one on the left.

P.S. - You will need over 50 heath to get there because the water you have to walk through is tocix.

Wouldn't it be great if Youtube had videos of the grub squashing achievement, the lambda caches, etc? I know there are some text guides for some of these achievements but videos would help. Also, for the Lambda caches, if I beat the game but I don't get all of the caches, can I just start over (on any part of the game) w/o the counter reseting to 0? Half-life 2 is pretty damn long, and I wouldn't want to restart from the very beginning to get the very few I missed. (Sorry if this has already been discussed, I'm too lazy to check if it has) :B

yeah with the grubs ive checked the guide and it says 93 in chapter one, well when i get to the drop that leads to chapter 2 i only have 90, i know theres one in a locker that i missed so make it 91 but im having a hard time finding the other two. It says in the guide before the vorigaunt saving alix which is in chapter two isnt? so the two grubs at the beginning of chapter two, do they count as part of the 93?

EDIT: nm that, now i cant find these 2 grubs at the top of the ceiling, im stuck on 224/226 according to the fuide, anybody got a screen of the two?

I'm having trouble doing the "One Bullet" achievement in Episode 1. I'm at the part where you are in the elevator shaft with 3 barnacles above you. How are you supposed to get up the shaft if you are not allowed any bullets? All I can use are grenades and the Gravity Gun and neither one of those do any good.

Any suggestions?

Edit: Nevermind. I got through it.

most of the multiplayer achievements on the guide just say "get some friends that will help." Does anyone have any hints for getting the achievement without help from friends? thanx
