Achievement Guide

Alright guys, here is the ultimate guide to getting the achievements. Some still need to be completed. So post any info you have. Thanks so much to icedtea for his help on many of these!

Half-Life 2 Achievements:

Bone Breaker
5 Kill 30 enemies with thrown physics objects.

Very easily done in Ravenholm, just pick up anything with the gravity gun and shoot it at enemies. It must kill them, not stun them. You will get little popups along the way(10/30 and 20/30).

Deadly Harvest
5 Kill an enemy by planting a hopper mine.

Easily gotten in the chapter, Anticitizen One. There are a few hoppers that you can set up before the first wave of enemies come at you. Just set them up at one or both ends where the force fields are at.

Hack Attack!
5 Kill five enemies with a Manhack.

After recieving the Gravity Gun, you will be able to use man hackers to your ability. Just pull them in and shoot them at an enemy to kill them.

Hot PotatOwned
10 Kill a Combine soldier with his own grenade.

When you get out of the tunnels of Ravenholm, you will come to train tracks guarded by snipers. Once you get past this, there will be a few guys, wait alittle bit and they will lob a grenade at you, pick it up with the Gravity Gun and shoot it back at their feet and viola!

Conservationist
5 Kill five enemies with the same energy ball.

This applies to those energy balls floating for generators. Very easy when working your way into the Citadel. Pull one in, shoot it to kill an enemy, then pull it back, rinse and repeat till 5 are down.

Think Fast!
10 Kill an Elite Soldier with his own energy ball.

Exactly like Hot PotatOwned achievement but in a different location.

Grave Robber
5 Steal a Zombine's grenade.

In Episode 1 or 2, there will be zombies who used to be Combine soldiers. When they pull out a grenade, just use the gravity gun to take it away from them.

Zombie-que
5 Use flares to light 15 zombies on fire.

Easiest place is in the parking garage in Episode 1, right around when the lights go out waiting for the elevator. Plenty of zombies, a good few flares. The flares are usually lying on the ground. When you pick them up they will light automatically.

Malcontent
5 Escape the apartment block raid.

Near the beginning of the game, you jump out of the window after talking to Barney and then you should get this one.


What Cat?
5 Break the mini-teleporter in Kleiner's lab.

When you first enter his lab, the mini-teleporter is on the left with the plant inside it. Just keep making it go back and forth and eventually it will break and you will get this.

Trusty Hardware
5 Get the crowbar.

This will unlock once you receive the crowbar. Also works in Ep1 and Ep2.

Barnacle Bowling
5 Kill five barnacles with one barrel.

Easily done in the Chapter called Route Kanal. Awhile into the chapter you will come to a guy on a turret, take him out and follow the path into the muddy tunnel ahead. Once in there you will soon come to a tunnel with MANY barnacles in one spot and a explosive barrel right next to you. Simply shoot the barrel until it's on fire, then make it roll down into their line things and it will bring it up and it will soon explode.

Anchor's Aweigh!
5 Get the airboat.

Story related so you can't miss it. Once you jump into the airboat in the end of Route Kanal, you will get it.

Heavy Weapons
5 Get the airboat's mounted gun.

Also story related, you will get this attached to the airboat in the chapter called Water Hazard.

Continuing in next post...

Vorticough
13 Discover the hidden singing vortigaunt cave in chapter Water Hazard.

Here is a nice video showing the exact location of this guy in the very end of Water Hazard. But instead of using a modded weapon(like he did), just park the airboat under it and climb on it and jump up.


Revenge!
10 Destroy the hunter-chopper in Half-Life 2.

At the end of Water Hazard, there will be a little battle with a chopper circling around. Just keep shooting it with the airboat's machine gun and avoid the little bombs. When it finally blows up, you will get this one.

Blast from the Past
10Find the HEV Suit Charger faceplate in Eli's scrapyard.

When you first enter the scrapyard, look to your left. You will see a little ledge above you with a couple barrels on it. Just stack boxes with the gravity gun and when you get up there, you must pick it up with the Gravity Gun to get the achievement.

Zero-Point Energy
5 Get the Gravity Gun in Black Mesa East.

As soon as you get the Gravity Gun handed to you from Alyx, you will get this achievement.

Two Points
2 Use DOG's ball to make a basket in Eli's scrapyard.

When playing catch with DOG, it will throw the ball at you. Just look up to the right and you will see the hoop. Just keep shooting 'til goes in. You should get the achievement right after that.

Zombie Chopper
25 Play through Ravenholm using only the Gravity Gun.

Might sound alittle tough but it's not all that hard. Just keep finding saw blades, barrels, boxes, and anything else to pick up and shoot at enemies. If you stuck on a rooftop with no items to pickup and are being chased by enemies, just run from them...You can pull out other weapons but you just can't hit the Right Trigger. Even if you swing the crowbar to open boxes it will count as using another weapon.

OSHA Violation
5Kill 3 enemies using the crane.

In the chapter, Highway 17, you will come to a magnetic crane in which you need to pick up the buggy and place it on the higher level. When you get into the crane, 3 guys will come out from the building and start shooting you. Just pick up a huge container, and start swinging it at them. You can also drop it on them to kill them as well.

Targetted Advertising
5 Pin a soldier to the billboard in chapter Highway 17.

Just before you cross the bridge to that farm with many foes, there is a big car pile up. If you look next to it, there is a hill with a tree on it. Get up the hill and there should be a corpse with the crossbow. The player should still be able to stick that guy from the hill provided they aim slightly above the target.

One Man Army
5 Destroy six gunships in Half-Life 2.

These ships are easier taken out by Rockets. It takes about 4-5 rockets to take one down. You have the entire game to do this so you should get it eventually. Once you kill any of them, a little popup will show your progress(1/6, 2/6, etc.)

Keep off the Sand!
20 Cross the antlion beach in chapter Sandtraps without touching the sand.

Sorta difficult. When you come to the beach where you have to cross the sand that is infested with Antlions, find anything of use and use the gravity gun to make your own little pathway across the sand. If you happen to mess up, just reload an autosave and start again. The achievement will unlock, if done right, as you are on the hill RIGHT before the little battle with the Antlion Guard.


Bug Hunt
10 Use the antlions to kill 50 enemies.

In the chapter, Sandtrap, you will get Bugbait grenades. Just throw them on enemies and watch the antlions kill away.

Flushed
5 Kill an enemy with a toilet.

In the chapter, Nova Prospekts, there should be toilets in some of the cells so just pick it up with your trusty gravity gun and fire it at an enemy.

Warden Freeman
10 Survive the second turret standoff in Nova Prospekt.

Story related so you can't miss it.

"Radiation Levels Detected"
5 Get through the toxic tunnel under City 17 in Half-Life 2.

Story related so you can't miss it.

Plaza Defender
10 Survive the generator plaza standoff in chapter Anticitizen One.

Story related so you can't miss it.

Counter-Sniper
5 Kill all the snipers in City 17.

You can easily find these guys from the blue laser their gun emites. Just kill them anyway possible. This is pretty much story related. Just lob a grenade in the windows.

Fight the Power
5 Shut down the supression device by disabling its generators.

Story related so you can't miss it.

Easily done. Just keep sniping enemies as you go. You will get little popups as you go to(10/30 and 20/30).
This isnt exactly right, its after you kill the sniper in episode one, Alyx climbs up and gets it to back you up. Just run through the next part with only the gravity gun pushing the enemies into her path until she kills 30. You dont snipe at all

You can only post so much stuff in one post. Thats way most achievement guides are around 3-4 post long. This one has 99 achievements so its going to be longer.

But a little note for your next achievement guide. Make several posts at once just saying "saved for guide" or something like that. That way your guide is one post after another without someone else posting in between your guide.

For the "Little Rocket Man" achievement:

"In HL2: EP2 find the Gnome in the communications shack in the begining of the game. He is hidden under a shelf. Keep the gnome with you until you get to the White Forrest Base and place it in the rocket with Lamarr." I got this out of the game guide.

The guide also states to use the one bullet on a lock in EP1. Not much else in there I can find to help on beside the web caches and time is short this morning. Maybe later I will post it to help out.

I have located this symbol, but when I smash the box that is just inside the opening I do not get the achievement update.

I have tried several combinations of getting this but after several reloads I still have not be able to get this to trigger.

Can anyone who has this help me?

for the Keep Off the Sand achievement, are you not allowed to jump down on the sand in front of the base. Where you have a mini boss fight with the large antlion guy? I stayed off of the sand for the entire level until that point, but I figured you had to in order to get the pheromones and gain access to the base.

If anyone had a problem with this achievement too let me know. I never touched the sand and never had to kill a single antlion the entire beach section. Any tips would be helpful thank you.

Hopefully this was not reported on another thread. If it was i'm sorry. i was able to open a few TF2 achievements offline. I selected system link, hosted a match and when i finished a complete game i saw that it was keeping track and giving me credit. I only tried this to check out the maps.

I deleted it from the list. It's just a logo and isn't an actual cache. That list needs some work...I found some myself that are not on the list. I am going to go through the game again and see if they missed something. I'll make a new list soon and make a new thread since it will be too long for a post.

Thanks.

Nice guide, which I'll keep on looking at for the Half Life 2 games, just for references.

Targetted Advertising: Before you get to the Petrol Billboard, there is a hill to the right, that you have to clear a bunch of cars out of the way to proceed. If you go to the top of the hill there is a crossbow. You can easily scope the guy on the billboard from very far away w/o him seeing you.

You should add that you must close the door after you place the Gnome inside the Rocket with Lamarr. The achievement will unlock once the door is closed.

Since youve got nothing for the 'Conservationist' acheivement, Ill share my help so maybe you could add that in.
In the chapter "Follow Freeman!" once you find Barney and attempt to shut down the defenses by taking out the generators, on your way to one of the generators youll walk inside a room with doors on both sides.
There will also be 2 hoppers in the middle, unset and ready to be planted.
Theres small holes in the walls, and the Combine will lock you in this room by closing the doors.
Place the hoppers before each door and shortly, the Combine will bust through one of the doors (youll be able to tell which one by the laser thats cutting through)
Take out your pulse rifle and wait for your chance.
The door will open, some Combine storm in, hopper goes off, and after that is your chance to fire an energy ball straight at the door.
There'll be enemies in the doorway, some in the hallway, and if it went just right youll kill at least 5 enemies with one energy ball and hear that ever so satisfying achievement blip.

---Now Im sure you could condense that borderline essay into a short and simple addition for the guide, right?

Does anyone know a good area to attempt the "Long Jump" Achievement in Portal?

I don't understand the achievement where you need to playthough Ravenholme with only the gravity gun, It was the only thing I used throughout but no achievement.

Are you not even allowed to switch too another gun or something? because a few time I acidently whipped out the crowbar, but never did anything with it.

I also accidentally pulled out the crowbar and was worried about the same thing, but alas, the achievement unlocked for me.




Not quite sure what you did wrong.

The answer is simple just keep using the gravity gun and make sure you don't use the crowbar since one swing from it counts. switching weapons are okay but as long as you don't fire or swing the weapon that is all. Plus keep using the Gravity gun until the next chapter.

You know the exact location of the lock that you use the one bullet on is when you first get your handgun.

Updated with more info.

Thanks to KissMyAsthma, lostboyz, and PhotoJ.

The lock is in the room you get pistol and shotgun in on the "Lowlife" level on Episode One.
