Achievement Guide and Road Map

So I finally got around to finishing Hydrophobia and have realised that no one has even made a guide yet and this game has been out for quite a while now. I thought I'd write a quick guide to help people out getting started as I know that it would have helped me to get started too.

This is my first guide so any help/feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Overview:
Estimated difficulty: 3/10
Offline: 12 (200)
Online: 0
Approximate time to 200: around 5 hours
Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1
Number of missable achievements: 0 (Some medals may be missable but with the level select function no achievements are really 'missable')
Glitched Achievements: none
Do Cheat Codes disable achievements? No cheats

Introduction:
Hydrophobia is quite an easy game and has no difficulty achievements so the game can be played from start to finish on easy and still be 200G'd. Only one play through is required as long as you use your auto saves wisely. If any collectable or medal is missed you can start a new game or load the start of any chapter and you will still have all of the collectables and medals you had before.

Step One:
Story
This should be your first and only playthrough of the story. The game and all achievements are fairly easy on hard difficulty but as there are no achievements for difficulty just go ahead and start on easy if you want to get through the game quicker.

There are 55 documents, 17 objects and 47 medals, all which are needed for achievements. There is a great guide by StarsRPD on how to get them all here http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=293046 if you are having trouble with finding something then there are also achievement hunter videos on youtube of the entire game.

There are 5 misc medals which aren't found at certain parts of the story so you should take note of them before you start the game.

Supersonic: Complete the game using sonic rounds only

If you want to get every medal in one playthrough be sure to get any medal that needs you to use a different type of bullet and when you get the medal just kill yourself and your last checkpoint will be loaded. The game will still think you haven't fired a different type of shot but you will have the medal still.

Geek: Complete the game without failing a hack

Once you get the hang of hacking they are very easy. If you fail one just reload your last checkpoint and try again. (this may require going to the dashboard but probably not)

Mermaid: Spend 20 minutes under water

If you don't have it near the end just keep going underwater.

Poseidon's Daughter: Complete challenge room without firing your gun

Hydro Power: Complete the first 2 waves of the challenge room without firing your gun

These are both done in challenge room and have nothing to do with the story.

Step Two:
Challenge Room

Once you complete the story you will unlock challenge room. In this mode you have to fight off 5 waves of 10 enemies but you gain the power of Poseidon, allowing you to manipulate water.

Just play through challenge room without firing a bullet to get two medals and the achievement Challenged . This is very easy to do, just find a good spot on the banister that you start on where you can't get shot much, press LB to wield your Poseidon power, then hold LT to manipulate water and click in the RS to throw anything in the water across the room.

Step Three:
Mop Up

If there are any collectables or achievements you have missed just start the appropriate chapter to find them.

Suvivor 25G
Complete the game.

Pretty obvious, just finish the story.

Honour 15G
Collect 50% of the medals.

see Celebrated

Private Eye 35 G
Collect all documents and objects.

see Celebrated

Celebrated 25G
Collect all the medals.

Use this guide to find all medals, objects and documents.
All can be found in one playthrough as long as you reload your checkpoint after using any bullets other than your energy rounds.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=293046

Challenged 15G
Complete the Challenge Room.

Once you complete the story you will unlock the challenge room. In this mode you have to fight off 5 waves of 10 enemies but you gain the power of Poseidon, allowing you to manipulate water.
This is quite easy and will take about 20 minutes. Make sure to complete it without firing a bullet to gain the two medals: Poseidon's Daughter and Hydro Power

Tinker 10G
Complete a hack.

Story related and cannot be missed.
Near the start of the game you will come to a hacking point, just match the signals and achievement unlocked.

Swept Off Their Feet 15G
Sweep 3 Malthusians off their feet with water.

You must use water to knock over 3 enemies. If you don't have this by the end of the game load act 2 and shoot the glass walls to bring water out knocking over the enemies. This can be done to the first 3 enemies.

Vengeance 10G
Kill 5 Mathusians with fire or electricity.

This should come naturally as your progress through the game. Just shoot explosive barrels that you find on the floors and walls next to enemies or wires above them 5 times. Firing wires into the water that enemies are standing on will also electrocute them.

Chain Gang 15G
Kill 2 Malthusians within a timed chain attack.

Just simply kill 2 enemies with one combo. Pretty easy and should come naturally. There are plenty of times throughout the game where there will be 2 enemies next to a barrel.

My Hero 10G
Save Chief Billingham.

Near the end of act 1 you will have the chance to save the chief. When you use a control panel shortly after seeing the malthusians in person for the first time you will get a checkpoint and a timer will appear at the top of the screen. You must run back to where the police chief is, equip the Mavi whilst stood in front of the window and open the door behind him.

Davy Jones' Locker 15G
Neutralize 10 Malthusians in underwater combat.

You should be able to get this near the end of act 3 if not sooner.
Just use your energy round to knock out the malthusians underwater and they will eventually drown. Just do this as much as you can by flooding corridors and rooms then going underwater and you should be able to get this achievement quite easily.

Drowned 10G
Drown a Malthusian.

see Davy Jones' Locker

You can easily miss "knock them off their feet", "private eye", "honour", "celebrated", "chaingang", "vengeance", "my hero", "davy jones' locker", "drowned" all missable.
"knock them off their feet", "private eye", "celebrated" are all easy to miss even. i played through it multiple times to get these cheevos, i still don't even have "celebrated" though that's because of that stupid deep breath medal :-/

There is a level select system and things like medals and collectibles carry over to your other playthrough's so they aren't really missable. I guess there are 2 medals that count for the whole playthrough so that is kind of missable.

Wow awesome, I failed the first hack because it doesn't really explain it. Looks like i'm starting over to avoid 2 playthroughs.

Oh my god... I completed the game, loaded Act II on another difficulty and lost the Supersonic and Geek Medals, what the fuck? Do I have to play through the entire game again to get them or can I just play Act 3 again?

Well fuck, I'll just do a speed run on easy.

Anyway, something you might wanna add to the guide, and would've helped me avoid this shit altogether: The combos medal can be achieved playing the challenge room. Damn.

Omg, I didn't know that you had to use that Mavi thing to find documents. I thought all the documents were on tables and stuff, I guess that's why I only found 21/55 docs, I found all the items though.

Same shit happened to me. You can get those 2 medals back by just replaying Act 3, still abiding by the medal guidelines.
Also, these keep disappearing:
Poseidons Daughter
Hydro Power
Can the OP please update the guide to include this information?
