Deluge DLC:
Welcome to the Deluge DLC, the latest addition to Crackdown 2. This DLC is pretty straightforward, yet it requires some grinding for those 10,000 kills. That's why the amount of time is that high.


15 Minutes of Maim - 25
Survive the Deluge for 15 minutes in every arena.

This one requires you to survive 15 minutes in every of the three arenas (Hope Springs, Green Bay, Unity Heights). The best way is to start at zone 1, wave 1 and continue to play until you've reached zone 2, wave 7. If you die, you need to compensate for the time penalty you receive and keep playing. The achievement will pop up once you've survived long enough in the last arena.

Cartographer - 25
Win a public match of Capture the Orb in every arena.

Capture the Orb is the latest addition to the team-based PvP modes in this game. You need to capture the enemy's orb while defending your own. There are six maps to win on:
  1. Docks
  2. Block
  3. Figure of Hate
  4. Hostile Takeover
  5. Uptown GRRRR!!
  6. The Pit
On a side note: If you are on the leading team and everyone in the opposing team quits, the game ends and counts as a win.

Decimator - 25
Destroy 10,000 wave enemies in Deluge.

Pretty self-explanatory. Just kill 10,000 enemies of any kind in Deluge mode. A good way is to achieve "Project Sunburst" first to get a helicopter. Then use it to breeze through the later waves, which contain a lot more enemies. You can grind about 2,000 kills/hour using this method.

You can check your status in the pause menu, under "Achievements". Also, you can always save & quit, your kills will be saved.

Deluge Domination - 25
Complete all 50 waves of a Deluge arena.

Just complete any arena until the very end. If you're hosting, don't worry about dying, you can restart at the last failed wave.

Earth Wind Fire - 25
Achieve 5x Combo, Blast, and Air in Deluge.

This one certainly requires a bit of luck. It requires you to gain 5x Combo, 5x Blast and 5x Air at the same time. This means you will have to kill 5 enemies with a gun (You could also melee-kill them, but no explosive weapons are allowed here) while standing on the ground, kill 5 enemies while in the air (Also no explosives here) and kill 5 enemies with any kind of explosives (Grenades, Rocket launcher, grenade launcher, etc.).

A simple technique is to throw a grenade into a big group of enemies, jump in the air and shoot 5 guys and when you land, pop another 5.

A good place for doing this is Hope Springs, zone 4, wave 4.

Project Sunburst - 25
Play Deluge with Project Sunburst enhancements or with someone who has this achievement.

This is a viral achievement, unless you happen to own a Windows Phone 7 smartphone with Project Sunburst on it. If so, you will gain a few advantages including Peacekeeper support and several powerups. If you gain this achievement by playing with somebody who already got this achievement, you will get only 1 bonus: A helicopter.

If you are looking for someone to give you this achievement, take a look into THIS thread.

Raging Bull - 25
Kill 10 Freaks in 30 seconds by shoulder charging.

A shoulder charge can be done by holding . Just keep running into big groups of Freaks until it pops up. A good place to do this is the quarry in Hope Springs.

Speed Scorer - 25
Score 20,000 points in 1 minute in any Deluge arena.

This will most likely be your first achievement in this DLC. If not, just cover an area full of enemies with grenades and rockets, this will give you a nice score, even without a high multiplier.

The Big Score - 25
Score 1,000,000 points in any Deluge arena.

This one is a bit tricky. You need to gain 1 million points in any of the three arenas. I was playing alone, didn't even die once and got a nice multiplier (9x) and had a ending score of 3 million points. So avoid dying at all costs since it sets your multiplier back to 1. The achievement unlocked in zone 4, wave 6.

The Blender - 25
Kill 60 Freaks in 60 seconds using the blades on the helicopter.

Start up a singleplayer game and hop into a helicopter. Fly to the quarry (top island of Hope Springs) and wait for the Freaks to come and spread out. Fly to the topmost path and lose height until your helicopter floats above the ground. Then just strafe to your left or right, butchering large groups of enemies and this achievement will pop up in no time.

I made a video so that you get the idea:


*Please comment if you know something that should be added to the guide. Thanks for any input!

Good guide! For Earth Wind Fire achievement, just to back it up, that is good spot to do it (Hope Springs, zone 4, wave 4), I did it first time.

The funny thing was, I was doing Hope Springs from zone 1, wave 1, I ran out of time on this level, then I happened to look at this guide, just to see if you could fail and carry on, and I also looked at this achievement, and thought, that is the exactly the wave and zone I got up to lol, so I when I restarted it from there, I got it first time!!

Great guide! A small note -- on 'The Big Score', it's a million points, not a billion

Just a few quick notes:

Cartograhper - If you join a match mid-game and your team wins, the win counts towards this achievement.

The Big Score - You don't need a billion points. You need a million, which is very attainable by playing a Deluge arena from start to finish. (I am very curious as to how you got 3 billion points )

Earth, Wind, Fire - This bit of information may not be necessary, but melee kills count towards the Combo kill multiplier.

Decimator:
Here's the colored tile for you.

Thanks Hybrid for that piece on info on the Cartograhper

Any other tips for the blender achievement? it was really annoying me earlier, im sure I got 60, sometimes I just think im crushing them and not blending them, and if you straife too far then you blow up or damage the helicopter!!

The Blender was the last achievement I unlocked. I used the Squad Chopper in the Quarry area, but I didn't fly like T0b3 does in the video. I was flying sideways, but I had to have my blades more perpendicular to the ground. This will damage the helicopter but it shouldn't outright destroy the chopper (unless you're using the regular chopper). In order to tell if you're killing with the blades, the freaks will explode either green or orange. Green means you're using the blades but orange means you're just running them over.

This is incorrect, Deluge has three difficulty settings.

Also if you are going to take the tip about going to the quarry for The Blender that I got from GameFAQs, you could at least give the guy who thought of it credit.

Thanks.

Okay, then I'm gonna give myself credit. The quarry is an obvious place for several achievements, nobody deserves any credit. I also immediately thought of the quarry when I first read about this achievement.

The Quarry isn't the only place to earn this achievement either. The road on the outer edge of the quarry (underneath the highway) is where I unlocked it. The road next to the highway at the beginning of the campaign can also be a good location, but you'll have to be mindful of Buggies. Unity Heights tends to be pretty populated with zombies, but you just have to be careful there as there are freaks strong enough to destroy the helicopter in a few attacks.

Maybbe this might help for the Earth Wind Fire achieve.

I did it in Hoe Springs Zone 1 Wave 2, there are plenty of enemies.

You can kill in any order, 3 with explosives, then 4 on air, 3 melee and then finish them.

Start killing like 2 or 3 running with sniper then throw a granade (it surely kills 5 or more enemies) fly and kill 3 or 4 enemies (it depends on how fast you are) then land normally and melee the other 2 or 3 enemies and then jump and kill the enemies you are missing.

I try it like this and succesfully did it at the first try, because I was trying to kill first 5, then the other 5 and then the missing 5 and I was having problems like this.

Well I hope this can help someone haha n_n

For the Decimator achievement what I'm doing is running through Hope Springs waves 1-10. Immediately after you start, do a 180 and grab a helicopter on the highway. Use that to blow your way through waves 1-10, wave 10 being an area where you have to capture but instead you can simply kill all the enemies that swarm in after triggering it. The average time of completion is 10-12 minutes and you get around 500 kills each time, so it's about 3000 kills an hour if you do it right.

A good tip for this is to wait until the freaks first appear at night time then save and quit. Copy your save game on to a USB pen and copy it back if you fail your attempt. This will save you waiting roughly 10 minutes for the freaks to respawn.

The video worked great, but it's really a matter of luck when you get the kills with the blades. When going sideways be sure to quickly tap fly down every now and again. When you strafe you tend to fly up slightly. As long as the chopper itself doesn't touch the floor you don't need to worry about the blades since they go through the floor

Cool 'Earth Wind Fire' Achievement Help.

I found this from Google , it worked 2nd time for me.

then quickly pop off five more with a machine gun on foot
for the remaining x5 Combo Kills.
If you did it fast enough,
your Air Kills x5 and Blast Kills x5 messages
should still be up on the screen when you hit your Combo Kills x5.

Achievement Unlocked.
