Hey there, i submitted the one on the site; i got it by Loading up Act 1 Chapter 2 (i think) where the helicopter starts killing the guys then you run up the stairs...


Once your up the stairs it saves the checkpoint, arm a grenade and lob it at the back of the little courtyard bit you walk out into, if you time it right (might take some practice) you can get the nade placed nicely as the 3 locust come round the corner taking all 3 of them out

~Yes.

You have 2 grenades, i used first to kill them, 2nd to kill me.

Rinse and repeat

/edit

Thinking about it the first level when they cut through the door might be easier

yeah make sure you don't just reload your last checkpoint bc that will reset the number back to what it was, you need to die and reload or it wont count

you can do this right in the beginning of the game when they cut through the door as well... lob the grenade, run outside and get killed, reload then repeat.

naw we both started it on hardcore and put that save file on the harddrive instead of my memory card not knowing what it would do to to my casual game, and then picked up where we left off the next day... even stayed the same characters so he would get the full dom achievement

Go to your campaign screen and select the load previous chapter. Next to each chapter in each act is a little symbol that says what difficulty you completed it on. Bronze and 1 star is Casual, Silver and 2 stars is Hardcore, and Gold and 3 stars is Insane.

Just replay whatever chapter(s) you don't have hardcore on.

Multiplayer Weapon Achievements

Ok, so I was looking over the weapon achievements and was suprised to see there was no shotgun achievement. Which sucks because Ive been using that the most. My question then, what is considered Capital Punishment? When I glanced at these achievements the first time I figured there was one for each weapon. Looks like its going to be harder than I thought.

I think that the capital punishment kills are shown by the picture of the head with the gun next to it when you see who killed who in the lower left hand corner.

I think his question, which I would also like an answer to, is exactly how you accomplish an 'execution' which is what is required for the Capital Punishment award.

It is not the same thing as a Curb Stomp or blowing someone to bits with a shotgun. Does anyone know how exactly you execute someone to fulfill things for this award? I've racked up only 6 executions across all gametypes and I have no idea how I did them...

In order for your kill to be considered an 'execution', you need to either chainsaw your enemy when he's on his hands and knees or shoot him directly in the head when he's on his hands and knees. The way you can tell if it's an 'execution' kill, is if the symbol of the kill is a gun pointing at someone's head.

100 Sniper Kills

I already have the 100 headshot achievement and most of the headshots were from the Sniper Rifle, so do the headshots from the sniper rifle count towards my 100 sniper kills?

Thank you, this is very helpful. Do you know if this would also count toward your chainsaw achievement? Because then you could kill 2 birds with one stone. Actually, it would be even better to shoot their head off with the pistol while they're down, if it would count both the pistol kill and the execution.

What about when you blow someone's head off with the shotgun. I was wondering last night if that counted toward your headshot total or if they all had to be done with the sniper.

As long as the icon after your name and before the killed person's name is a crosshair, it counts..

What about the one with the pistol to somone's Head? Does that indicate a headshot or an execution? I would guess a headshot with somthing other than a sniper, because I only see the crosshair symbol when I snipe somone, headshot or no.

Well, wait a sec, wouldn't an execution count as a headshot as well then?

You have to blow somone's head off to get an execution anyways, so wouldn't it be both? That would make sense in reality, but not in the game sense... as you would gain both achievements at the same time then, thus making the whole point of having two different ones pretty much worthless... idk, somone clear this up for me before my head explodes

An execution is a point blank shot to anywhere on the body..

That's not true. If you shoot your enemy while he's on the ground anywhere but his head, it will be counted as a kill using that weapon, not an execution.

Clusterluck

For the achievement of Clusterluck, at the ending of Act 2, about 3-6 Boomers spawn from an emergence hole. There's a gas tank that you can collapse onto them...Can't you repeat this 10 times for the achievement? Reply, message, email back.
