None Left Standing 20
Get 100% kills on any floor on Don't Hurt Me or harder

Simple. Just don't leave any rooms unchecked. Obviously easiest attained on the very first floor.

Clean out the Castle 20
Get 100% of the treasure in any floor

Treasure might be found in open areas, but most of the time they are hidden in secret areas. You might want to do this achievement on the very first floor.

You can find map overviews, which will help you much to find those secret areas, HERE.


One of Many 10
Exit any floor at any difficulty

Just complete any level.

Hey, That Wall Moves! 10
Find one secret

In Wolfenstein 3D, secrets are hidden behind movable walls. Just run up to one and press to make it move!

You can find complete map overviews, including all secret areas, HERE.


You Are Death Incarnate 10
Complete one floor on "I Am Death Incarnate"

Complete one level on the highest skill level. Do this on the very first level. Since there aren't that many enemies but enough secret areas with ammo and health kits inside, this shouldn't be a problem.

Blazkowicz-ed! 40
Complete all six episodes on Bring 'Em On! or harder

There are 2 important things you need to to in order to beat the whole thing on this skill level.

First: Save, save, save. You don't want to restart a whole level just because you accidently ran into a big bunch of enemies, right?

Second: Collect every secret! There may not be "only" ammo or health but bigger guns and treasure!

Okay, I hope you like my guide. Even though the game isn't out yet, this guide will definitely work 100%.


==

Road map:

- Estimated achievement difficulty: 5/10
- Offline: 12 (200)
- Online: 0 (0)
- Approximate amount of time to 200 : 4-5 hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1
- Number of missable achievements: None
- Glitched achievements: None
- Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No cheats

Introduction

Welcome to Wolfenstein 3D. This game was created by id Software back in 1992 and was one of the very first FPS which laid the foundation stone for all FPS which came out in the meantime.

Wolfenstein 3D is ported by the same company which ported DOOM - analogies between Wolfenstein 3D's and DOOM's achievements are obvious.

Step 1: Playthrough

Start a new game and pick the skill level "Bring 'em on". Roam around the level, killing everything you encounter. While doing this, check this overview in order to gain access to all secret areas. After you've moved the first wall, Hey, That Wall Moves will pop up.

Once you've double-checked every room for treasure and enemies, exit this level and None Left Standing, Clean out the Castle and One of many will unlock.

Now continue to play through all episodes, unlocking all respective chapter-achievements and finally, when beaten the sixth episode, Blazkowicz-ed! will unlock!

Step 2: One floor on "I am Death Incarnate"

The only thing which still is between you and another 200 is the achievement "You Are Death Incarnate", which requires you to beat one floor on the skill level "I am Death Incarnate". Just start a new game and pick the first episode. You won't even need health kits since there are only a few enemies. However, in the event that you accidently lose a great amount of health and/or ammo, check the guide for secret area locations.

Right after you pulled the exit lever, the achievement will pop up. 200/200!

Conclusion

As you can see, there is no "hardest" achievement in Wolfenstein 3D. All achievement are pretty easy, not only because there are teleporter exits which allow you to skip huge parts of the game, is desired. Especially oldschool gamers won't have a problem with this game.

Great job! I was going to write one but my lazy self never got to it. You may want to add this video onto your guide or just leave it here. It shows how to 100% the first level for those of you who have never played good ol' Wolf3D.

heh. I wanted to write this guide since I've heard of Wolf3D coming to XBLA.

Thanks for the vid, but does it show 100% kills or 100% treasure or both. If so, where do I include it in my guide?

Only one of those videos is needed, as they are identical. Great achievement game, got 70GS in less then four minutes.
Difficulty in general is less then Doom which will make it that much faster to 200/200 it.

I plan to grab this whenever the hell I have some time, probably sometime tonight (damn dr visits). Definitely will be using this guide. I use to have this on the old super nintendo but I'll be damned if I remember ANYTHING from this game at this point, that was so long ago and I prefered Doom moreso then this one.

Nice guide and especially cool that you posted it so fast... for old school gamers the achievement difficulty is rather 2 / 10, but that's just because you remember so well how the game plays out

Yeah, but playing through the whole thing on Bring 'em on can be very difficult to new wolfers.

I have to agree as I am new to Wolfenstein and am not finding it that easy on Bring 'em on difficulty. I fought the level should have ended by now but I keep getting lost. Can I ask a quick question?? I followed the video in the thread to get the 100% achievements and after that it took me to Episode 1 Level 10. I got to the next door and I am now at Episode 1 Level 2, is this supposed to happen?? Am I going the wrong way?? I have looked for other Wolfenstein video guides but none help me.

Level 10 is a bonus level. Typically the episodes go 1-9 and one of them will have a 2nd exit to take you to level 10. Once you finish that, you go back to where you should be.

What's this about teleporter exits? I know about the level 10 ones, but there are ones that let you skip parts? News to me.

No, teleporter exists will get you to the bonus level of each episode, you cannot skip parts with them.

Rightly so, everyone who's having difficulties should just save a lot. Like with the SEGA classics, you can save whenever, wherever (now wasn't that some crappy song?)

I found that exit this morning and was stoked, I thought I blew through all of episode 1 haha. Then I went back to floor 2 and was depressed as hell. It's been a while since I played this, and I don't even remember finding a single floor 10 when I use to play it when I was younger. Oh well. Hopefully I'll finish up episode 1 when I get home this morning.

Okay thanks for clearing that up as I was unsure on it as wondered why the order would go in that way but a bonus level makes sense. Now onto finishing the floor itself. Also a very good guide dude, has helped alot with it being so easy to understand.

Can't you also find the head of commander Keen on a stake on one of the bonus floors? Or am I confusing this with Doom?

Nice job on the guide, you beat me to it.

I'm going to go ahead and disagree with the difficulty and the time needed.

Given that you can save at any time as often as you want, and you don't have to play on the hardest difficulty level, this is a 3 at most for difficulty.

In terms of time, there' 60 levels in the game, if you figure 10 minutes on average to account for longer levels, dying and having to go back, etc, then that's 600 minutes or 10 hours. You might think 10 is too high for an average, but 4-5 hours would mean 5 minutes on average which is low IMO (especially if you think it's a 5 for difficulty).

I gotta say though, this is exactly the kind of thing that needs to come to the arcade -- an old classic (instead of some boring puzzle game that is just a rehash of some other boring puzzle game), 400 points (instead of 800+), and straightforward achievements (just beat the game for the most part). And as a bonus: you unlock stuff for another game.

It would've been nice if they had retouched the graphics a bit, but otherwise this is a perfect XBLA release.

Edit: just a couple tips as it occured to me that not everyone's an old school Wolf3D gamer from back in the day (like I am):

- mentioned in the guide, but save often.
- use the machine gun (not the gattling gun), and try to do single shot as much as possible. You'll be surprised at how much this saves ammo
- rely on the poor AI. Charge into a room to trigger them (hearing the "Gustahfson"), then run out and wait for them to come through a doorway or around a corner before laying into them. The AI has a basic "charge at BJ" strategy, so this tactic is very effective.

I have to disagree. People might play it without map overviews and since some levels are extremely confusing, getting lost is very easy. Furthermore, enemies can oneshot you on that difficulty and if you forgot to save, you might have to replay some time.

I played through the whole thing in about 3 hours and 40 minutes without remembering any of the levels (Except for the very first ones). So 4-5 hours is a very suitable time, even for beginners.

You don't need to save ammo, I didn't ran out of ammo once in my playthrough. Just rely on secret areas.

That's true. But you have to be careful since enemies can shoot through the tips of corners.

Ok, silly question, but just to confirm, do you need to hit the secret levels to unlock the episode achievements?

Anyone else have this problem?

On Episode 3, Map 10 (the bonus level), I hide myself in the secret room with all the ammo and let all the enemies come at me. But for some reason I'm being shot when there are no enemies in the room with me. (And no, they're not shooting me through the corner.) I counted about 30 come at you once you start the killing.

In other words, some of the enemies are invisible. I even killed one and couldn't see him until his body lay on the floor dead.

Just wanted to give a heads up, because it's hard to explore and find all the treasure here when you can't see enemies.

Wolfenstein 3d 200/200.

P.S. I've been playing video games for over 15 years and I never got around to Doom or Wolfenstein until these came out on Arcade. Both games are great, and I can say that more than a decade after they've been released.

That's in DOOM (DOOM 2 actually). It's at the end of the bonus level which is a remake of the last level of the first episode of Wolf3D.

Well, agree to disagree. Enemies can one shot you on any difficulty, but very rarely do so (usually it's just a LOT of your health). And if you forget to save then it's your own fault. Difficulty is supposed to be a measure of how tough a game is, or how much skill is required to complete it, not how tough a game is if you make it hard on yourself. Is there any part of this game that will press even an average gamer? No, and that's why I don't think it deserves a 5.

Compared to Duke (or even DOOM) this one's a cakewalk.

Nice, that's a damn good time. That's about a half hour per episode. I'm averaging probably about 45-50 mins per episode (I'm on the 5th) and that's skipping the secret levels (and that's also not counting dying and reloading times). To be fair though, I am exploring a little bit.

To each their own, rather than dig up a map and spend the time trying to find secret areas I'd rather just play smart. In either case, the tip is still valid even if it isn't necessary.

Yes and no, you learn to watch for things like that. At any rate the "trigger the enemies then retreat back" strategy is going to be more effective 90% of the time than the "charge in guns ablazing".

Y'know I was worried that there'd be a lot of "this game looks like crap" or "yet another crappy old game from MS for the arcade" sentiment from people who've never played Wolf3D, but most of the comments I've seen seem to echo what you said there. As a guy who remembers playing the shareware version of the game on a 3.5" floppy disk back in 1992 it's nice to see that even people who don't have that nostalgic tie to the game still enjoy it.

Edit: for those who want maps with more details (all doors, keys, etc), you can look at these ones:

These are all screenshots of each level in one of the more well-known level editors for the game. As such they're much more "cluttered" than the ones mentioned in the guide, but are just here as an alternative.

How would they find said secret areas without map overviews? /:

Ah right, that's why I was confused.

It reminds us all of a time where games weren't measured on how they look, but how great it is to play them! Good comment
