I lost my chance at the Medium/Hard achievements!! Help?

I have a question. I played on hard difficulty all the way up to the Panama canal. When I got to the shootout with Passos (before you rappel on the rope to get across) that gun fight was to difficult for me to pass so I changed my free aim to dead lock and had no idea that it would disable the medium and hard achievements. I have since completed the game and wanted to ask, if I continue from the point before I changed the free aim and played through changing nothing until the end of the game will the achievements then unlock?

Unfortunately, you will have to start a new game and play all the way through in order to unlock the difficulty achievements.

Yeah,thats what I thought, I don't have the patience to go through it all over again so I guess I'll be 80 points short. Thanks for chiming in on this.

If you think about it the game isn't really long, it's those goddamn cutscenes and not able to skip them is what makes it long.

Unfortunately it seems you ignored the message that comes up saying that Hard Lock will disable certain achievements.

Your only option is to restart a New Game.

Agreed,You also have to factor in the length of time it takes being in cover and trying not to get hit on hard difficulty with next to zero pills available. It's just not worth it for me.

Not if you know the spawn spots, it's fairly easy. Don't give up on the game, you can beat it on medium with soft/hard lock on.
