That is something I wouldn't ever EVER try.
I would lose my mind. The rest of them are pretty cool though. And I do agree that the achievements are quite easy, easier compared to 2 I will say that.
Good list.

Good list.

I don't know...On the default difficulty outposts end up getting really easy to liberate silently as long as you have a silenced sniper rifle and are patient. Especially if there is a caged animal in camp. I haven't played the game on insanity so I don't know how much of a difference that would make. As long as people don't go for the alarm until they actually see you it wouldn't be all that hard...Just a little time consuming.

OT: Amazing list and some other really great ideas in the posts

You know I was going to write one for playing without Radio Towers myself and I forgot to add it before I finished, nice. That's a good one, it would be a real pain.

I forgot these too, but I suppose making up horrible multiplayer achievements isn't nearly as fun since we all really hate those anyway.

Came into the forum, saw the thread title, was happy because I assumed "the nightmare" was a leaked DLC.

Then I read the start of the first post and realised that it wasn't a new DLC, and I was unhappy.

Then I read the whole thread, and now I'm happy again.

Quite frankly, if even one of your achievements were on the list, I might re-consider playing the game at all.

I would be in the bitching thread as a gamer if this was the achievement list and I would totally make a list like this if I was a developer. Honestly though looking over it, it's kind of similar to Dishonored's achievement list, maybe a little Deus Ex as well.

Complete the entire game on any difficulty without causing an explosion or using explosives (do not explode cars either, though enemies can blow them up). Any mission where it is mandatory to use an explosive weapon or to blow up cars does not count against this achievement.

Well, those are my two cents ^_^

The fuck!? Those two would be hard as hell! Not purchasing any skills means you're stuck with like 2 or 3 bars of health for the whole game! And not using any healing items?

But, entirely doable since you can do First Aid on yourself whenever you want without a syringe. And all you have to do is not get shot at and screwed up.

What's even better? You can do this on any difficulty. I could probably do it on Normal, though I shudder about trying.

SAVE OFTEN! Ha ha.

Ahh, so self-healing is acceptable then? Good.

I've always enjoyed when the community creates a Thread dedicated to 'player-created achievements.' I feel as though the community often times has better ideas on what may be more challenging or enjoyable to achieve during gameplay than the developers themselves.

If you're talking about some of the relics on Islands that don't seem to have a way up you can actually climb those hillsides using a modified version of the ElderScrolls/Fallout mountain "hack" jump. Basically you just run at various angles spamming the jump button and you eventually make it up something you weren't supposed to be able to climb.

All of them had vines to climb up I thought? At least the 20 or so I got from islands.

Pretty sure Relic 107 (Heron) near Gaztwon (left most town on Island 2) is ONLY obtainable with the Hand-glider. No other way possible to get that one.

Cool

There were two relics I picked up that REQUIRED me to use the Hang Glider to obtain. There's one on an island that I couldn't do the "hack jump" that I'd been using for all the rest of the islands. There was just nowhere to jump up to because of the sheer cliffs on the place. It stuck up about twenty feet high with no slope on it.

Then, there was the one in the ravine. There's a little shrine in the cliffside. I fell to my death ten or twelve times without ever ONCE seeing a way into this little nook. I saw no vines. I saw no alternate paths. I couldn't drop into it... I just went up the hill, grabbed the glider, then flew into the small nook for that Relic.

Beyond those two Relics, I didn't need a vehicle or a glider for any of the rest. So, if we're not counting Hang Gliders that were required for me to use to obtain a relic... I actually beat the game on Normal without using a single vehicle that wasn't forced on me.

And yes, BiggD... You can self heal. The problem with that though?

If you accidently pick up a "first aid kit", it actually gives you a syringe that you cannot drop or get rid of. At all. So if you try to heal after picking one of those up, you'll use the syringe and forfeit the achievement.

Save often!

Then, there was the one in the ravine. There's a little shrine in the cliffside. I fell to my death ten or twelve times without ever ONCE seeing a way into this little nook. I saw no vines. I saw no alternate paths. I couldn't drop into it... I just went up the hill, grabbed the glider, then flew into the small nook for that Relic.

You and BiggD could very well be right. I only got relics off a couple islands and I was either able to find a place to "hack jump" or there were vines. I stopped getting relics after I got the achievement and leveled up all the way so you are probably right.

True insanity would be completing the main story at least 10 times. This harks back to Project Sylpheed for the "Gigaton Club Patch". Fuck me! That took some doing.

If you accidently pick up a "first aid kit", it actually gives you a syringe that you cannot drop or get rid of. At all. So if you try to heal after picking one of those up, you'll use the syringe and forfeit the achievement.

Save often!
I hadn't even noticed that! Well, looks like we'd have to save every 5 minutes, lol!

Yeah man, I'm honestly not sure why I bothered getting all 120. Probably just to have my map clear since I bought all the Items Maps. But anyways, I know for a fact that Heron Relic 107 can only be done with a Handglider. All others can be done with the wall jump you were talking about, or simply traversing the land to get around them.

Weak, because you've killed a bunch of them for the achievement. It's a play on words I'm guessing, I liked it. Now if he comes back and it was an error, we'll have to be mean to him for the rest of our lives.

Ahh, a play on words. If that was his intentions than I like it. If not, well...

Yes, it was a play on words.

I originally listed it as Shark Week 2.0 then realized that "Shark Weak" would be so much cooler.

And Walt, if it wasnt a play on words, I would have jumped all over who said it like that as well....lol
