Achievement Guide

Earth Defense Force 4 - Achievement Guide

Overview:

  • Estimated achievement difficulty: 8/10 (Challenge in 2P Coop, Easier in 4P Coop)
  • Offline: 50/50 (1000 )
  • Online: 0/50 (0 )
  • Approximate amount of time to 1000: 320+ Hours
  • Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 8 in Split-Screen (16 in Single or Online)
  • Number of missable achievements: None (Stage Select)
  • Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No
  • Does difficulty affect achievements?: Yes
  • Glitchy achievements: No
  • Unobtainable achievements: No
  • Extra equipment needed?: Yes, 2 Controller
Roadmap:

Step 1: Missions

You have three options to complete all stages. You can clear all difficulties in SP, Split-Screen or Online. In SP mode you will notice that some stages are designed for Online or at least Split-Screen mode, so you have to grind much armor to survive on Inferno some minutes.

The best thing you can do is complete all stages in Split-Screen, since the progress will be saved for both classes you and your friend play. That means you save 8 playthroughs in total. Make sure to combine Air Raider or Fencer with Ranger or Wing Diver. Otherwise you will have problems, because the Air Raider only supports other classes and the fencer is too slow for some enemies.

Step 2: Weapons

After clearing all difficulties with all classes, you will certainly miss some weapons you need to collect. The drops are luck based and it may takes hours of grinding.

Step 3: Mop up

You should have all achievements at this moment, because of all difficulties and weapon grinding. If not, it's time to get the remain kill, medic and revive achievements. If you don't know how to get the medic achievement, you can look in the guide below.

Introducing Classes:

the best team for coop is Ranger and Wing Diver, although the ranger seems to not do the damage that is shown, where as the wing diver does the exact damage which is listed.
i.e. the "Monster-S" energy sniper for the wing diver does 6000 damage, so on inferno 4 shots to take out a dropship while the Rangers "Lyzander - Z" shows 5500 damage, but needs more shots. Maybe the rangers damage is affected from distance and probably the enemie type.

Air Raider does not have good rifles for close combat, but does have heal, power up, defense up stations, supports with transport vehicles and mechs, plus airstrike support.

The Fencer is more of a tank, he will get the most armor out of all 4 classes, providing high HP while also able to defend with all kind of guns.

You have to clear 85 stages.

If you play a stage in Split-Screen coop it counts for both classes, so you can save 8 playthroughs in total.
Since the later stages are more difficult in 2P Coop, you should combine the Air Raider with a front fighter like Ranger or Wing Diver.

Finally got the 100% weapon achievement. I still have to destroy just under two hundred carriers (that achievement is BS, compared to the others' quota numbers) and clean up the higher difficulties.

How the hell did you rack up that much HP and is it capped there? I'm half tempted to play each class a bit, find a favorite, and grind until it has like 30,0000 HP to run Inferno split screen once with each other class. I still need to find a good place for grinding, unless I just run through on Normal/Hard. I really want to find the damn Lysander Z though, and that likely requires Inferno. We need to confirm if certain weapons can only be found beyond a certain mission, etc. Like I think some of thw eapons in EDF 2017 (Lysander Z?) could only be found beyond mission 40something on Inferno. If one could find the right mission to farm certain weapons from Inferno early on, it would be possible to walk right through the other difficulties killing the big enemies a lot easier.

i boosted in stage 37, a dock level, there are 6 tunnels spawning endless waves of spiders, ants and red ants. with 2 controllers (ranger and wing diver) i used wing diver to get there, bomb away all houses and containers there with plasma launcher and just kill and collect everything.
in 1 hour you can rack up nearly 100 - 120 HP with wing diver, and the ranger gets 200 - 240 HP.

so plan a few days boosting straight.
To get inferno weapons fast and soon, especially with air raider and fencer, play the only cave level with 2 giant ants at the end, or other caves if you think you can beat it. they can be done with low HP, so farm weapons there.

Another tip on inferno is to hide under catwalk platforms or in some houses that have a roof above the entrance when playing stages with dragons in it. they will sometimes grab you through the wall there and glicth you to death so keep moving.

Its always good to keep pushing walls or against buildings.
In the last stage you start at a park, nearby at the street is a tunnel, there are a few levels in this city, so remember that this tunnel will help you alot.

Weapons that helped me alot:

Wing diver
- Plasma sniper called Monster-S for dropships and bigger enemies
- Plasma spreading launcher called something like M30, 30x320 damage wide spreading
- close combat laser, one of the later ones (first category)
you can literally, even with 2000 HP, fly through the arena caves and
beat all enemies unharmed, it will paralyse them. Also it doenst need that much of the energybar.

Ranger
- AF99 assault rifle (get it eventually in the cave with the giant bees)
- lysander-F
- a grenade launcher which summons fire (very helpful with the dragons)

Fencer and air raider however will need in 2 player coop at least one guy beeing ranger or wing diver to protect and take down dropships.

Ok, thanks. I still haven't figured out how to actually use Air Raider. I spawned a tank but couldn't figure out how to use it. I also had this one weapon equipped that looks like a target painter but nothing ever happened. btw, have you figured out the stats list? I'm specifically wondering if there's a that that tracks the weapons unlocked per class so you know exactly when you've completed a class. I don't get how a few of the things are in english, but they didn't just go ahead and have the menus both ways. What, there no japanese word for "easy" or "armor"?

p.s. Is it just me, or do you only pickup weapons for the class you're controlling in split screen? Armor counts for both but weapons have to be picked up by both classes?

You have to press Back in a shiny circle near the vehicle to get in. I don't use the support things of the air raider often, but the most result in an air assault or similar.

One stat shows you how many weapons you collected, its directly under all mission percents, but a stat for individual classes doesn't exist. I'm working on a weapon table you can use later.

About the weapons ... yes, only the class you collect with, will get it. So make sure you collect with both classes.

So is the Genocide Gun back? Hopefully beating Inferno unlocks SOMETHING reasonably cool.
