Yep, thanks for these guides! I missed that hijack an atlas achievement and few others also, because I was afraid that there might be spoilers. Hope Bioware releases DLC soon that I can play this through on insanity.

Just an FYI, you can obtain all achievements without Multiplayer, IF you have an iPad.

I obtained 100% in all segments by playing through the Galaxy at War portion of the Mass Effect Datapad app.

Not interested in the MP (ME will always be a Single Player game to me), so this was a good way to do it. Took a while, but so long as you remember to check your iPad every 3 or 4 hours it doesnt take too long

According to Xbox.com, you unlocked it on the 26th.

The only alternative to buying the Online Pass to play the normal MP portion of the game is if you own an iOS device (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) and download the "Datapad" app (free), or purchase the "Infiltrator" game ($7) which can also increase your Galactic Readiness.
Evidence presented in this thread shows that this isn't the case; your readiness might show as 100% within the app and on BSN, but the game will not pull that info without an Online Pass, thus not unlocking the achievement.

I think the apps should still be mentioned as an alternative to playing multiplayer though (just make it clear that the Online Pass is needed regardless), but it should be updated to note that Infiltrator is now available on Android.

I got it on my Vanguard playthrough. Use the Scorpion (LVL1) pistol or the Katana Shotgun to blow the shield away, make sure your teammates aren't shooting at it and then when the shield is gone, shoot him either with the shotgun or pistol and he should die. I've done it a few times now.

It is possable to get all achievements in one play through with the exception of 'Defender'(odviously), 'Battle Scarred'(just start a new playthrough with NG+), 'Gunsmith' (just continue NG+ until you can get to the cargo hold and upgrade gun), 'Veteran' (5000, really) and...... 'Master and Commander'.

I have searched all over to see if this could be possable on my first playthrough and can quite confidently say that it is a no. Two reasons.

1. I have seen the save file transfer list and with all calculations you can only ammass 7600 and change in war assets.

2. Bioware have stated on one of there forums (buried under and behind red, green and blue tape) that it cannot be done.

I have found plenty more on the subject, but them two points about sum's it up.

Now to be ready to do it all in one playthrough you must be prepared to make a full insanity run doing everything and I mean everything.

A. Import a Femshep and change the class to sentinal (also change one thing on her for 'inlisted'). This is because you will need Warp for 'Pyromaniac', throw for 'Sky high' and overload for 'Overload Specialist'. Also the easiest romance option is with Traynor who's a carpet muncher.

B.Take Liara with you at all times and use and abuse her..... singularity for the combo for 'Combined Arms'. This also makes the majority of your playthrough relatively easy.

C.You can only reach level sixty in your first playthrough by doing the following.
  • Make sure insanity is switched on by the time you reach the first med box on earth. The game gives you 150 xp per med gel not used, thats 300xp per box and 450xp for wall mounted.
  • Do not use med gel. Ever. you need every bit of xp the box/wall gives you.
  • There are times that you will bump into Harvesters. Make sure you kill every last one before they fly off. This gains you another 100xp each.
If you follow these rules you should hit 50 after leaving the citadel priority II and level 60 whene you hit the final missile button before the..... erm.... end.




D. For the 'Bruiser' achievement on insanity, don't go out of you're way to get it, if you see something with low health and you can old school it go for it. Mine popped at the last battle.



E.At this level the kill brute/hyjack atlas can be challenging but I did manage them both. A bit like pulling teeth really. A relief and satisfying whene you get the 'berlip' unlock. I hyjacked the atlas at the end of the 'Gill' Grissom Acadamy whene I just used the one I was in machine guns on the glass.



All other achievements will come with natural progression and you check them off as you get them or go out of your way to finish them.

It took me fifty hours and one minute to do all this. Time enjoyably and well spent.

Hope this helps.

I transferred my saves from my X_bot fat to my X_bot slims. Will mass effect 3 read my save data? . I have gold. I've heard that you can upload your save to the cloud to get past this or something. Thanks

Yes it'll be fine. I played Mass Effect 2 on another Xbox and it imported fine on my new Xbox.

If it's been covered already, I apologize, but for Unwavering on the MP side.... which six maps count? Any six, or the original six? And if the original, which ones are they?

Just the original 6: Ghost, White, Glacier, Giant, Dagger, and Reactor.

I definitly am having more trouble with ME2 on Insanity. I finished ME3 on Insanity with relative eas. I'd say this game is more a 4 out of ten since ME2 is giving me this trouble.

Just like to add that you can romance Kaidan as Male or Female on imported save or not imported. And it unlocks the achievement.

I managed to do everything but Battle Scarred, Gunsmith and Veteran in one playthrough with an imported ME2 level 30 vanguard. Took me just over 30 hours (not sure what exact time it is but no more than 40, it's in the 30's somewhere). I did defender in one evening during a break in the storyline so I guess it counts as being in the first playthrough.
I then boosted veteran during the first mission exploiting a spawning trick when I imported my character back in for the battle scarred achievement. Gunsmith was the last achievement to be unlocked for me. Somehow the one about delivering most assets to war popped up way before I attacked the cerberus base so I don't know what happened there, I guess the dlc helped as it did with getting to level 60 (which I also did quite a while before the cerberus base attack too)

My character is an Engineer. He uses only Overload and/or Incinerate as his powers. From what I can tell, you just have to combine your power with someone else's power in a combination. You do not have to do the combo by yourself. I had no idea this was working for me until the achievement popped (surprisingly).

Sky High is the same situation. It can be done with Overload and/or Incinerate. Those were the only power attacks I was using and I got the achievement. So it doesn't have to be just biotic type attacks. Just an attack powerful enough to knock them off of their feet.

If this is new information, then glad I could help. If it's been mentioned before then this is just a refresher.
Do you have any better idea which combination really counts for Sky High when playing Engineer class ?
