Looks like a pretty straight forward list:

Collectibles, single player, multiplayer, challenges and at least one Easter egg, Newt's Doll.

Does single player look a little short? 5-6 levels? I hope they are a good length.

I'm hoping those 1st 5 cheevos are sections, not just levels. If they are, they better be extremely long otherwise this will be a very short campaign.

To me it looks like they were designed to get most of them either way. This way they can be unlocked by those without a gold XBL account. That's purely speculation on my part though.

It looks, from the descriptions later on down the list that there are several more campaign levels.

Seems a simple list, which is great as I want to play the co-op with a mate who is an achievement addict. A tricky list would have probably scared him off :P

Wow, I just noticed the date this thread was created in comparison with the game's release. How many times did it get delayed?

I like the fact there is Newt's Doll achievement.

Just to confirm for anyone wondering, you can unlock Game Over, Man!, Not Bad For a Human and State of the Badass Art by beating the game on Ultimate Badass difficulty which is available from the very beginning. Difficulty achievements do stack.

It's not overly challenging either if you're competent at FPS games.

Thanks for the heads-up man! That's good to know.

'Gib two enemies at once'

Sorry but... what? I don't think I've ever heard the term 'gib' before in my life. Just Googled it and I can see that it can mean several things, none of which make any sense in the context of this game. Can someone enlighten me please?

Means kill two enemies at once and have them blown to peices. Maybe a grenade or shotgun would work best.

Wiki says basically blow them to jiblets

Every time you rank up a level, you get a commendation to spend on weapon upgrades etc. The achievement will pop once you've done that 30 times.

Secret achievement is called: Easter Egg 5 - Find the Easter Egg.

Located in Level 2, after you open the door with the loader.

Anyone know all 6 legendary weapon locations?

I've seen 5:
Level 1- Hicks' Shotgun
Level 4- Gorman's Pistol
Level 5- Hudson's Pulse Rifle
Level 9- Vasquez's Pistol
Level 10- Frost's Flamethrower

Edit: Nevermind. Last one was in mission 6.

It wasn't, UB is very manageable if you're competent at FPS. Using CoD as an example, if you can beat the recent games on Veteran you'll breeze through this.

There is a generous supply of armour and health available (if they spawn that is, the game has issues with this), enemy AI is bad at times staring at you or a nearby wall/object rather than attacking, your teammates can't die either so you can use them as bullet sponges while you flank enemies who seem oblivious to you shooting them.

The game isn't challenging overall, or that great either to be completely honest.

I'll have to do second playthrough then, I didn't realize it would be that easy.
