Introduction:
The Expendables 2 game has two purposes: 1. to get people hyped up for the release of the movie, and 2. to blow shit up. For me, the first was not necessary considering the epic cast of awesomeness in the movie, however the second purpose alone is reason enough to play a game. The campaign in the game takes place over the course of 4 Chapters with 5 sections each, and each of the Chapters consists of basically the same setup with there being a shootout, followed by a chase scene, and then lots of more shooting, with lots of explosions and bad voice acting throughout. Now it's time to kick some ass and take some names.

First Playthrough
You can set this to either Casual or Hardcore first depending on your preference, personally I went with Hardcore as I usually do and Caesar with upgraded attack and health makes the end of the game pretty easy even on Hardcore. It may be safer for some people to level up characters first through Casual, however, but it's up to you; one difficulty will yield "Mission Accomplished" and the other "The Extra Mile". As you progress through the game you will finish one achievement for each of the Chapters; "Balkan Party", "Desert Storm", "Urban Pacification", and "Burma Breakout" respectively, and during this time you'll need to work your way to getting xp for the character leveling achievements: "Peak Peformance" and "Top Class Crew" (most likely won't finish the latter), as well as "Professional Wrestler" by using each character's grapple move once their attack skill is maxed out. During this initial playthrough you will also receive "Under Duress" at the end of the first section of Chapter 1, "Time is Money" about midway through that same section, "Knock, Knock" just after time is money, "Raining Down the Fire" in the second stage of Chapter 2, "Gun Safari" basically as soon as you want to use all 4 characters, "Blanket Party" might as well be paired with Gun Safari, "Florence Nightingale" as 50 heals of your partners will come very quickly, and eventually "Challenge Junkie" since the challenges aren't missable.

Second Playthrough (Other Difficulty):
Depending on what difficulty you chose to do first, you can try for some of your cleanup achievements now, primarily "Hands-on" if you're doing Normal 2nd, and "Untouchable" if you're doing Hardcore 2nd. Depending on how you chose to level your characters

Cleanup:
As stated in the previous section, if "Hands-On" wasn't finished in your 2nd playthrough, now is the time, and you should now have at least a couple of maxed out characters by now to make "Untouchable" easier, obviously Chapter 1 is the best bet for this. That also means you can do "Killing Machine" which would more simply done with a juiced up character on Normal in areas where enemies constantly respawn (such as the helicopter fight in the bitch black . During this time, as well as during your first playthrough if you want, you can also go for "4's Company" by grouping with 3 other people for the entirety of a chapter. It's not necessary for Hardcore, however, so it counts as cleanup.

Grinding:
In order to hasten your progress toward "Hands-on", "Killing Machine" and both character upgrade achievements, I highly recommend you set the game to Normal and start from Mission 1 of the Kowloon Chapter (Ch3). What you want to grind on is the large groups of guys between the beginning of the level and the point where you must C4 the first wall (this whole level is pretty full of easy enemies, but I feel this is the quickest section to steam through guys on). With max attack and 2/3 health, Yang can cut through the guys no problem for the "Hands On" achievement. For the other achievements you'll want a more conventional approach by using Caesar and a fully upgraded AA-12 and as much health as you can afford when you attempt this. Note that once you get inside the building full of shipping containers, you'll want to hang to the left behind the first shipping container as long as possible so the sniper won't knock you down and cause you to drop your combo, once you need to proceed for more kills, move quick and shoot 2 or 3 shot bursts until you get to 50 kills (should be very soon after you move out from cover).


Achievements:
Knock, Knock - 10
Blow the factory gates!

When you reach a large gate blocking the way in the first level, Barney will tell Caesar to blow it up. That's your queue to switch to Caesar () and move up to the gate, then hold until you plant the bomb.

Time is Money - 10
Complete a challenge

Destroy the enemy APC with the rocket launcher by the sandbags. Pick up the rocket by holding and then fire it as you would a regular weapon.

Under Duress - 10
Interrogate the Sniper

Blow the sniper out of his tower at the end of the first level to get this achievement.

Raining Down Fire - 10
Take out the weapons train

In the second part of Chapter 1 you'll be a gunner in a helicopter shooting at bad guys. Once the choppers move to give you an angle on the fuel tank toward the front of the train, unleash hell out in with missile and gatling rounds (use to change between weapons). Make sure to shoot up the cars behind it as well, and soon enough the entire train will go off the rails and the achievement will pop.

Blanket Party - 10
Perform all grab moves, melee attacks and signature kills

Each of the four characters has a unique grab move, which is performed by holding , a unique melee moved, performed by tapping , and a unique signature kill, which is performed by holding when your combat charge bar is full. The combat charge bar is the 3 section bar under your gun icon, note that using grenades takes up 1 section of the bar, and collecting the crossed knives combat charge powerup will restore roughly one section, killing people restores it as well.

Gun Safari -30
Use each weapon in the game to kill an enemy

Each character has 2 weapons, you can swap between them by pressing . You need to make sure you kill at least one enemy with each. However, the pickup weapons do not count toward this achievement. You can pair this with Blanket Party pretty easily by simply switch to a character, using their Grab (Hold ), melee (tap ), signature kill (Hold with full Combat charge), and both of their signature weapons (tap to switch), and then proceed to the next team member until you have used all available abilities for all 4 guys.

IF the dropped weapons do count, they will be classified as: Rifle, LMG, Shotgun, Rocket Launcher most likely. Need someone else to confirm that they don't, though I got it without using the sniper rifle or the m16.

Balkan Party -20
Complete chapter 1

See "Burma Breakout"

Desert Storm -20
Complete Chapter 2

See "Burma Breakout"

Urban Pacification - 20
Complete chapter 3

See "Burma Breakout"

Burma Breakout - 20
Complete Chapter 4

Each chapter consists of 5 sections, basically divided into your insertion into the area, an on rails chase sequence, and 3 progressively harder shoot and blow crap up scenes (Burma has the chase scene at the end, however).

Florence Nightingale -10
Heal 50 times

When a teammate drops to the ground, injured, run over to them and hold to heal them. During this time you are immune to damage, and if you need to stop for some reason the heal bar won't reset. Do this to 50 teammates during your career and you'll get this easy achievement.
If you want to get this VERY easily, play on Hardcore and whenever you see someone on your team (in singleplayer) healing a fallen teammate, switching to the character that is healing them for easy points. That is most useful if you're dead.
If you're playing online, it can be even easier by working with your teammates to have them basically collapse in a pile since the heal is area of effect, meaning they will all be healed together as long as they're close enough together.

Challenge Junkie - 25
Complete all challenges

Many of the missions have challenges you need to complete to proceed, and are generally mandatory to the progress of the game. You need to simply complete the challenge, not meet any other requirements, for the achievement to pop, however if you happen to miss a challenge after completing the game just browse the Challenge menu from the games main menu. The achievement will pop as soon as you blow up the APC and Tank combo during the Burma Chapter.

Professional Wrestler - 10
Perform all 4 fully upgraded grab moves

Once you max out your primary character, start leveling up the attack skill of your other characters until they're all maxed. Once a character reaches it's max attack level, their upgraded grab move (hold ,then tap it's basically the same as their old one with the addition of a grenade) can be used. Rotate between the four characters until you've used the ability at least once on each.

Untouchable -20
Complete a mission on Hardcore without getting healed

Make it through a mission on hardcore without getting knocked down and needing to be picked up by a teammate. Be sure to utilize cover () as much as possible, and always fall back if necessary. Once you pass through at least most of the game and level up a bit you should be good to head back to Chapter 1 to cross this achievement off your list. Remember that using your Signature skill (hold next to a bad guy when you're at full charge) heals you to full health, and at max stats for the character causes a massive explosion that kills or severely damages everything in range, use that to your advantage if necessary.
It's important to note that you can switch to a different teammate if you're about to die, even if that person is already dead, just make sure they either have a lot of health or are already dead so you don't immediately die after switching.
Remember - Caesar , Gunner , Yang , Barney

Killing Machine - 20
Kill 50 enemies in a single combo

As you kill enemies in quick succession a number will appear above your total kill counter. Keep unleashing hell on your enemies in order to keep the counter going, any extended pause in killing will reset it. A good idea to get this achievement is to have a leveled up signature weapon that you like to use, and play on Casual in an area with infinite spawning enemies (usually a helicopter area), which can be found toward the end of each Chapter.

See the grinding section at the top of the main post for a grinding guide.

Alternative method (thanks to NewProfileKid):
Load up Chapter 4 Mission 4, playing as Caesar (and as many of the other players as possible, less computers is better), and progress through the level until you reach the point where you must take Caesar and destroy the two APCs with C4. Clear out the enemies and DO NOT blow up the APCs, instead wait and look to the top right of your screen to kill the infinite enemies that spawn to the right of the APCs (yup, one of the infinite spawn areas I talked about). They will come at a relatively steady stream while you shoot your way to a 50 kill combo.

Peak Performance - 10
Upgrade 1 character completely

Max out the SKILLS of one character, see "Top Class Crew"

Top Class Crew - 35
Upgrade all characters and signature weapons

Each character has two signature weapons with 4 upgrade tiers each, and 3 skill upgrades with 3 tiers each. This achievement may very well be your last for 100%, and if it is you CAN buy the upgrade pack (NOT each individual upgrade, the 240msp ONLY). This will net you the achievement(s) the next time you start a campaign mission (In general, the achievements do not pop until you enter a new game/next level/etc.). See the farming section at the top of the main post for a farming guide.
Each character has the same price for their skills, which are as follows, in order of the upgrade
Health: 3000, 5000, 8000
Speed: 3000, 5500, 7500
Attack: 3500, 5000, 7500
Each character has different prices for their guns

Gunner
Shotgun: 5000,7500, 10000, 14000
M-82: 5000, 9000, 13000, 18000

Barney
Colt: 5000, 8500, 12500, 16000
Dual Kimbers: 5000, 7000,9500, 13500

Yang
Knives: 5000, 7000, 11000, 11000
MP9: 5000, 8500, 12000, 15500

Caesar
AA-12: 6000, 10000, 14000, 17500
Hk-69 : 8000, 12000, 12000, 17500

Hands-on - 30
Kill 2000 enemies using melee attack or grabs

Yang is the guy you want for this job, and to make life easier you'll probably want him to be the guy you level up first, starting off by maxing out his attack skill. His knife attacks are both fast and pretty powerful, with good range, and his combat ability ( ) is a smoke grenade which helps protect him from damage as he closes into melee range, and also lights up all the enemies in the area like christmas trees. Once you've maxed out Yang and move on to other characters (Barney does good melee as well), try and melee as much as possible. Each character's melee can be a powerful tool if used properly, some are just easier to use, especially on the higher difficulties (Gunner and Caesar are both open to more damage as their attacks are slower).

See the grinding section at the top of the main post for a grinding guide.

Mission Accomplished - 20
Complete the Campaign on Casual Difficulty

The difficulty achievements DO NOT stack.

The Extra Mile -40
Complete the Campaign on Hardcore difficulty

You can make this your first playthrough if you follow some key guidelines. I personally spent the first 2 1/2 chapters or so using Yang to get work on the "Hands-on" achievement, but eventually found that leveling Caesar's Grenade launcher and then armor was a god send. From that point on, be sure to park yourself behind some cover (hold ) while you reload, and only coming out to launch a grenade. Use that slow turtle tactic to keep yourself alive while slowly making progress, with progress coming in the form of you rolling () between cover points. This technique is key for the areas that are full of enemies and have an annoying checkpoint ages before you even reach that part. As long as you remember to take the difficult parts slow, and also remember that you don't need to rush any of the challenges in the campaign for the achievement, you just need to finish them, then this achievement won't be too hard to get. Also remember that if the going gets tough and you need to constantly respawn thanks to stupid game mechanics, at least you don't lose your XP so 1000 deaths = 1000 tries worth of XP.
Also, armor piercing ammo is great! Upgrading Caesar's grenade launcher for the last Chapter and a half was a life saver with all of the armored enemies that appear, and of course don't forget body armor (health), it gives a very noticeable difference in survivability.
Some other Tips =
1. if you need to use a rocket launcher to take out a vehicle and you have to reload it, as soon as you start to reload, roll with and it will automatically reload (and it's safer).
2. You DO take damage while planting C4, however you CAN plant it while you're dead if don't release the button, and doing so to reach the end of the mission in a few missions will complete the mission even if you're all dead.
3.Finally, your teammates revive themselves after being down a while, and will instantly revive if you run too far away from them (most importantly if you backtrack to revive them safely, when you are allowed to backtrack...) . Basically just stay alive if you're the last one alive and you can't revive anyone without dying, since in case you haven't noticed all of the enemies on the screen will attack you as soon as the guy is revived.

4's Company - 20
Play through an entire chapter with 4 player co-op

When you start a new campaign you can either join a quick match or make a private/public game where you can invite people to join or wait for people to join, and/or plugin in controllers so the party has 3 players. Once you have a full squad, complete all 5 parts of any Chapter as a full squad. They're all basically the same length so it's really just preference.
Head to the Achievement Trading Thread if you need help.
Note that if a teammate lags out during a mission, you can just wait for them to come back and proceed to finishing the mission and you'll still get the achievement. Also note that you can get this over multiple sittings, just play through to the screen where you get your score before quitting out of the game for it to count (thanks Halfevilmonkey).

So, are the difficulty achievements stackable in the Xbox 360 version of the game? I'm wondering because according to the PS3 Trophy Guide they aren't stackable on the PS3 version

Thanks for the guide looks great, good job! I got this yesterday i didn't start it yet because i also wanted to see if the achievements stack? I hope they stack because i was starting hardcore today, if they don't stack i may as well start on casual to know the level layout then run on hardcore.

I bought the DLC for max characters, so hardcore should not be that bad. Can anybody confirm about how many playthroughs please? if you want to do co-op hit me up guys.

Looking at the guide writers card he has the hardcore achievement but not casual. Seems fairly safe to say they don't stack.

I am just at the end of chapter 3 on hardcore, tbh unless you have the DLC to max characters I would start on casual then do your hardcore run. It's not really hard but 4 players would make it cake IMO. I wish I knew previously about the achievements not stacking before I played lol.

The good news is i suppose the casual run will be quick and easy after this.

Thanks for the response

EDIT: I have another question... Does the 4 player Co-Op achievement have to be done online? or can it be done me with a guest, and a friend of mine with another guest also? I'm a little confused because I know I can have a guest and invite my friend to the game, but the guide says it has 1 online achievement and it's that one

people always say its online but they never tell you if its offline.
In this case you can do one complete chapter offline as 4 players, did it with my brother both with 2 controllers.

I just finished the game on hardcore and did not get the achievement for casual, So unless it was just me, i don't think the difficulty achievements stack.

Very helpful.

Overall I like the game, but damn this Killing Machine achievement is giving me fits. I just cannot find a good spot to do it. It might be easier 4 player in that the others can keep the horde off of you while you run around killing people.

Fixed the difficulties and 4's Company,thanks.


Edit: Found what I believe to be the best Hands-on, Killing Machine, AND top class crew farming.
Mission 1 of Kowloon, from the start up to where you have to C4 the door. You can get a minimum of 100 kills in that stretch on Normal, I have gotten to 49 once and 40s several more times in about 6 go throughs using strictly melee so it is entirely possible to get Killing Machine as you work on Hands-on. Once you get to the C4 gate, make sure you kill everyone that keeps spawn until they stop coming and then return to lobby and rejoin the game. I'll add this info to the guide once I get Hands-On...and a note on that, DO NOT use your super signature skill that you get for maxing out a character's stats, the explosion does NOT count to your combo. Caesar's upgraded grenade launcher doesn't always count every kill you get from a multi kill either which is screwy.

Edit 2: Alright got Killing Machine within 2 tries lol.. Using Caesar with max Shotgun (20 shells + max range = money), you have to make sure you have people around you so keep moving up. Once you get inside the building, stick to the left behind the containers as long as possible to avoid the sniper who WILL tag you if you stop for too long, and screw up your combo if you're like me. I got up to 67 or 68 before I reached the trucks and lost the combo my 2nd try. Hope it works for you guys.

Thanks for the tip Shiftie. I will give it a go and see if it works for me. What do you do when you run out of shotgun ammo? Do you switch quickly to the grenade launcher? I feel like the combo would go away during the reload...is that not the case?

EDIT: Tried this spot but I keep getting downed so fast, even on Casual, trying to keep the combo going. So annoying!

EDIT #2: After several tries, this worked perfectly. Thank you so much!

What is your health at? I got downed a couple of times as Caesar with 1/3 health but was ok after that. Yang moved too fast to get downed at all or even down to half health, so if you are dying a lot try moving and firing two or three shell bursts. As for reloading, I do just that, I reload. Once you have the shotgun upgraded it doesn't take TOO long to reload, just be prepared to blow someone away as soon as you're done. However, if you get stuck in a situation where the game bugs out and you reload, go to fire and have to reload again for some reason, you will lose it. But, you could try using both weapons if you want, I just found the grenade launcher to be too unreliable for kills (also buggy) despite being maxed out. Up to you.

I've already gotten over 50 combo there another 2 times since on two attempts using just the shotgun, so I know that does work consistently.

Sorry my info was wrong. I was rushing the end of the game and saw two achievements pop at the end.. I HATE games that don't stack the difficulty achievements and this happened to be one of them since those 2 achievements were Hardcore and Chapter 4 -.-

Look man don't worry about it, if it was a really hard or long game it may have been a pain. It's neither of those so no harm done, at least you had a guide up and quickly only a handful of us had even played it at that point. I also agree that the difficulty should stack, especially if they gave a DLC pack to give you a shortcut for 1 run what's the point?

A couple of quick notes for everyone considering the game:

(1) You do NOT have to play through an entire chapter in one sitting to get the "4's Company" achievement. I played the last three missions on Chapter 1 with three random people on Xbox Live, and then I did the first two chapters the next day, and the achievement popped when the second mission was completed. The game saves your data by mission.
(2) You CAN hook up extra controllers and login guests to get the 4's Company achievement as well. I did the first two missions with two extra controllers, and the guy I was doing it with ran ahead and did all of the killing. It is a bit cumbersome moving up three characters at once, but I just played as the sniper and sat back while the other guy I was boosting it with ran ahead with Caesar and killed people with the auto-shotty.
(3) On my hardcore run-through thus far, I feel like the sniper is the best character once you get a handle on the aiming. You can literally just hold down the right trigger and use the right thumbstick to strafe enemies, killing them pretty quickly.
(4) As Shiftie mentioned already but I will reiterate, Mission 1 of the Kowloon chapter is the best place for both "Hands On" and "Killing Machine." I got my multiplier up to 60 or 70 a few times once I got a handle on where the enemies spawn. When going for Hands On, definitely use the Asian ninja guy and rapidly tap B so he does his knife attack. You should be able to knock out 100 to 120 melee kills in that first section before the trucks arrive. Shiftie mentioned all of this, but just thought I would give my experience with the game.

Great guide!

Thanks for the 4's Company in multiple sittings info.

I think the guide is complete now..however I think I messed up on the cost of Barney's tier 2 Kimbers. I put down 7000 but I forgot to actually check before I upgraded so that's an estimate >.<

I found your tips for 'Killing machine' achievement quite difficult to understand, might just be me lol, but i found a good method on the internet so im not claiming this. But on chapter 4 mission 4 right at the beggining you just have to kill all enimies and blow up the tanks but dont plant the bomb in between the tanks. Theres an infinite spawn of enemies 1 at a time. But this is a better method, also i have 3 controllers so the computer didnt get involved. When one of my dummy profiles died i changed it to the last non controlled player so it was just me. I will post the link in a minute to the video i used.


There is the link, much easier this method. Again i am not the creator of this video nor claiming this is my method.

I changed some of the wording in my guide, although I know it's worked for a few people so I didn
t want to change it too much. My method is faster and more fun (imo~) too, for those who can figured out what I read I guess, but if anyone on here wants to copy the method you linked and make your own video that'd be cool. I don't feel right stealing some other guy's video, buuuuut I'll add a text version to my guide til then for people who prefer your method.

Don't think it has been mentioned but during the chase levels you can gain xp without actually playing the game.

Might help with people trying to max out the characters whilst doing other things, just make sure to start the level on hardcore to get 500xp for injuries and 1000xp for the level
