I think the complete-the-game-with-less-than-13%-of-the-items might be quite hard too.

I'm guessing that the 13% of the items are the mandatory weapons you find/collect through the whole game.

Don't think so, in the Metroids, they are independent from health/ammo upgrades.

Minimalist seems to be the hardest. All the other achievements you'll get eventually just through playing. For Minimalist, you have to refrain youself from grabbing more than a set amount of items, thus making your game just a tad bit harder. I'll definitely be playing on Easy for this achievement. Also, it might help to be in the high levels when going for this achievement.

Proving Grounds doesn't seem that hard, especially if you've played the trials Bionic Commando Rearmed. At least there isn't an achievement where you need to get a certain amount of a certain medal.

yeah, im really glad the achievements arent collect-a-thons or what not. the 100% could be considered but atleast what you collect is something you actually use. i agree about the 13% or less though. it could prove to be very difficult. does beating the game allow us to continue again, like a new game+ type deal? i realize we have to recollect the items but do we still have our same level?

im REALLY glad the shoot 50/100, beat 5 type achievements have counters. that helps SO much. i loved that in the orange box and havent seen it in other games since.

and what do the master challenges (beat in under 2 hours, under 3 on insane) do? i realize they arent achievements but they should atleast unlock something - a gamer pic, a theme, etc

I agree Mgetter. I love it when they implement a GUI for the achievements ingame. Not just showing the xbox interface. Call of Juarez also have that
More games should follow that trend imo.

Just in case you still haven't found it:

In the room where you picked up the grenades, there are destructilbe boxes behind a knee-high wall, jump over that wall and plant a grenade. Drop down the knew-ly opened vent and you'll be in a crawl space.

That initial opening is harder to see if you're on a SDTV as it's mostly hidden. But once your drop down you'll be fine.

I have all the achievements except the level 50 one, that one will be completed with time. I am trying to complete the 4% master challenge right now. Now that one my friends, is going to be hard.

I think those ones are the only ones that WILL be hard to complete.

So this 100% Completion Achievement (Completionist);
Does this involve a lot of backtracking after finding the weapons (foam etc) needed to gain access to some/most of the items... Or am I missing something big? ???
I dont want to play much more if I have missed something early on. (ive just gone through the big room with the mech in and about 8 or so soldiers. At Grenade Pack 7's location.) Cheers.

did the names of achievements and or the achievements them selves change? I remember seeing different ones when I first downloaded the game, but now I don't see a couple of them anymore. One i can remember is the Jason Bailey one in particular. ...or am I loosing my mind.

None of the achievements have changed.
You probably saw the master challenges.
Which aren't achievements themselves, but do add something extremely difficult to complete.

Which are:

Jason Bailey: Complete the game at 100% in under 2 hours on any difficulty.

ChAIRNESS: Complete the game at 100% in under 3 hours on any difficulty.

The Insurgent: Complete the game at 4% with only the Flashlight, Backpack, Grenade, Foam, and Missile.

Status Update: Single; Complete the game by abandoning Claire to her fate.

Does anyone know anything about this one? I finished the Insurgent run yesterday and I think I pretty much left Claire to her fate then. What do I have to do.. or cannot do?

edit: ok I found out using google. I have to admit I just didn't get this one. But perhaps it's for the best not to spoil it here and to let people figure out for themselves? I wouldn't have figured this one out though.

I highly recommend watching a few of the Youtube videos for the Chapter 3 challenges and then come back to them after a day's rest. I was getting frustrated with them too, but once I knew exactly what needed to be done & I was more relaxed, they were not all that difficult. Some will still take 3-5 tries, but you will be much less frustrated. Also, don't worry about the clock, just take your time.

I just polished off the Proving Grounds last night after thinking I would have to skip over them as well.

Now I just need to level up to 50.

It is really hard to figure out the achievement without help. Just leave Claire alone ;-)

Does anyone know if you unlock anything for doing the Master Challenges? Like gamer pics or avatar rewards? I'm still going to do them, just curious.

I'm wondering about that too, they seem pretty nasty. This is probably something really simple, and I guess it's not technically an achievement, but how are you supposed to get Status Update: Single?
