AvP: Achievement Guide + Roadmap

Overview:
-Estimated achievement difficulty: 8
-Offline: 40 (720)
-Online: 10 (280)
-Approximate amount of time to 800/1000: 30h+/70h+
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 per Species
-Number of missable achievements: 6
-Do cheat codes disable achievements? No Cheats yet
-Does difficulty affect achievements? Yes
-Glitchy achievements: None
-Unobtainable achievements: None
-Extra equipment needed? None

Introduction:
Welcome to a great Sequel of the AvP series. You can expect some good action and getting the full 1000 is some piece of work.

Missable Achievements:
4 of the missable Achievements are the Collectibles covered in the Guide. However there are 2 story related achievements which are missable if you don't pay attention. The first is helping van Zandt via killing him before the Alien Larva bursts through his chest and the second is killing all Marines in the 2nd Alien Mission - Refinery.

Step#1: Playthroughs on Hard
I recommend starting on Hard if you have some skill in FPS and you are not a real newbie to the genre. This way you'll learn how to play the 3 species and get to know the levels with its triggers. You need this knowledge to survive Nightmare since there are NO checkpoints. You should collect the Diaries/Jelly Containers/Trophy Belts as well as the second collectible for the Alien: Civilians who must be harvested. Regarding this please check the Achievement Guide.

Step#2: Playthroughs on Nightmare
This will be quite challenging. If you make a mistake you have to restart the mission. Manual saving doesn't work, so this depends solely on your skill. As Predator and Alien take it as slow and safe as possible. Nothing is more frustating as the last Marine in a level kills you after a 30-40min Level. You basicly play a level setup on Hard without checkpoints, so be careful as dieing can happen quite fast. For general information about each campaign please check the guide.

Step#3: Survivor and Ranked Multiplayer
Play survivor with some friends to get several weapon achievements and the survivor related killing achievement. All that is left afterwards is playing ranked MP to get enough experience for the achievements.

Step#4: Mop up
If you are still missing some achievements, check the guide again how to unlock them.

Conclusion:
It will take some time and skill to get through the campaigns on Nightmare and boosting the exp may be difficult. Hopefully someone can provide a decent strategy for this.

Story:

Club hopper - 15
Survive The 'Party' at The Club

After the reunion with Tequila you have to go to the Club and help another Squad. After everything is dead inside it unlocks.

Exit Strategy - 15
Escape from C-Block

You have to survive the Alien Horde. If you do survive you receive this achievement.

You Have My Sympathies - 15
Help Van Zandt

This one is missable as you can proceed without shooting him. You find him in a cocoon like the colonists in the 2nd Alien movie during the mission Refinery. Release him from his pain via headshot.

Regicide - 15
Defeat the Matriarch

The "boss" of the second mission. Kill all facehuggers before using the lever, then shoot the glowing canisters while fighting off the aliens. Then you have to hold out for 2-3min until the lever is ready again.

I Will Never Leave You... - 15
Locate Tequila

After killing the Predator proceed through the mini Hive and rescue her.

...That's A Promise - 15
Get Tequila to surgery

Fight your way through the Research Lab and put her into the cryo chamber.

One Big Bug - 15
Defeat the Praetorian

The "Boss" of the Research Lab. Kill the normal aliens first with the scope rifle and have a shotgun ready. As soon as the aliens are dead the Praetorian will attack you with primarly charge attacks. Go in close and shoot 2 shots at once with to stun it and deal lots of damage. Aim for the body instead of the head. The pulse rifle is quite good too, but you need lots of ammo. The attacks can and should be blocked as 2 hits will kill you.

Get to The Chopper! - 30
Recover Weyland's datapad

After killing the newest version of Bishop go up the stairs and take the datapad. Prepare to aim quickly for the head after the cutscene or you are dead.

Stay Frosty - 15
Complete Marine Campaign on Hard difficulty setting

Beat all missions on Hard. Unlocks after the final cutscene once you are back in the main menu.

I LOVE the Corps! - 30
Complete Marine Campaign on Nightmare difficulty setting

General Information for Nightmare as Marine/Prey
Welcome to hell private. This campaign is by far the hardest to beat on nightmare. Aliens are more durable as on Hard and the final mission is suicide. You have to fight:
30-50 Aliens, 2 Praetorians, 8 Androids with cloaking device and shotguns, which can kill you with a single hit if you are at least 5m away and the infamous new Bishop with a shotgun. He takes 16! Shotgun hits if you are up close on Hard, so I presume he takes as much on nightmare and finally the cutscene where you have to aim fast to kill him.

Some tips I can give for survival are: Choose your weapons wisely. Scoped Rifle can kill an alien with 1-3 well placed shots, shotgun can knock them back if they are too close. Flamethrower is working arkward and Pulse Rifle is to weak against several aliens at once. Another big problem which will be really frustrating: Giving an unintended headshot to aliens if they are right in front of you = instant death.

Once you encounter Androids be careful. They kill you quite fast and take 5 shots from the Scoped Rifle. So try to destroy a leg with two 2 hits to immobilize them. A headshot helps as it weakens their accuracy. If you stand still they can't target you with the Motion Tracker.

To kill the Praetorian in the Research Lab use the Frag Grenades from the Pulse Rifle and the alternate fire from the Shotgun to bring it down.

Cause of this factors a good to perfect knowledge of the level is necessary as some real good FPS skill.

I Admire its Purity - 15
Complete Alien Campaign on Hard difficulty setting

Beat all missions on Hard. Unlocks after the final cutscene once you are back in the main menu.

Magnificent, Isn't It? - 30
Complete Alien Campaign on Nightmare difficulty setting

General Information for Nightmare as Alien

If you haven't watched any Alien movie yet, do it quickly. Marines react to sound your claws make on metal surfaces. That's one reason why Aliens move very, very slowly until they are spotted. Target only marines which are seperated from their Squad mates, so that you have enough time to execute the Stealth kill because even if it is called stealth kill, the sound of the screams attract attention.

Use the rooms to your advantage, find dark corners to lure Marines with and dispatch them. Escape after a kill, preferably by climbing walls and/or ceiling. Remember that you can jump to any surface if your crosshair becomes highlighted. Pouncing Marines after they are aware of you will often be blocked on Nightmare and Marines may even spot you more often if you walk on the ceilings in the light. To trick marines who have motion trackers, just stand still. Even turning around is dangerous. After a while the marine will follow his routine again, just be patient.

Level 2 Colony:
The only challenge here is the last room with 5-6 Marines. Stay on the ceiling and destroy the lights in the middle and the proceed forward and position yourself above the walkway which is in the dark with one light. Destroy it and kill the marine. If you are lucky someone will investigate the mate's death and he could join him. Try to lure them there or seperate them any way you see fit.

Level 3 Refinery:
You enter a large room. You have one walkway with 2 Marines on it. Next to the one near your on the lower level is a civilian and a marine. Kill the one on the walkway fast, since the part is dark already then jump back to the ceiling. Now kill the one on the lower level or wait until the 2nd on the walkway has finished his investigation. Once the one on the lower level is dead, another one should check his disapperance and becomes the next prey. Now there should only one marine left near the exit. Jump behind him from the ceiling, which makes only little noise at all and kill him.

Mission 4 Jungle:
Once you are trapped destroy the lights and behind the crates on the right is a gas canister. Hit it and after it explodes you have a new exit in form of a vent. Now get out and kill the marines from behind instead of fighting head on.

Mission 5 Ruins:
Killing the synthetics should not pose much of a problem, just be careful to give them some extra hits when they are down on the floor as a imidiate grap could be prevented. To kill the Preds take your time ~20min. Never attack any of them if you have taken a bit damage. A successfull counter and a grab from them can kill you.

Once they jump down either pounce them or give them a heavy hit. If you have the chance to perform a grab do it! Of course you can't kill them with it, but they take a good chunk of damage. If you want to pounce them NEVER do it from the front only from behind or you have a high chance of being countered. Good luck with it.

It Uses The Jungle - 15
Find a way through Gateway

After you open the gateway via leeching the console you get this achievement.

Fallen Comrade - 15
Find the Youngbloods in the Jungle

You will find two Youngbloods during the mission and after initiating the self destruction sequence this is unlocked.

Matter of Honor - 15
Discover the Elite Predator's fate

Near the end of the mission you will stumble upon his corpse and receive the Disc along with this achievement.

Eyes of The Demon - 15
Retrieve the ancient mask

In the Ruins you will find this nice artifact to finally receive the Alien vision.

World of Hurt - 15
Survive trial by combat

You have to kill the Praetorian and his/her Alien minions. Note that the Praetorian can't climb and only two Aliens are summoned at the time. Use the disc and stay out of melee range. If you need to regain some health jump to the top of the towers and inject a health shard. But don't too long on it as you might receive a nasty acid shower, which really hurts.

Breaking and Entering - 15
Find a way into the Research Lab

After killing all synthetics, disabling the power to the monorail and decapacitating the officer you get entry to the Research Lab and an achievement.

Reclaimer - 15
Retrieve the second artifact

Near the end of the mission you will find the stolen Wrist Bracer after battling several Aliens.

Extinction Agenda - 30
Destroy the Abomination

You have to fight the Predalien and on top of that in a arena which falls apart in midst a pool of lava. Don't attempt fighting it melee. The heavy attack knocks you to the ground and really hurts. Use the Stick and aim carefully. In case you need to replenish some health, hop around the platforms to gain some distance and inject yourself. After losing 1/3 and 2/3 health it will break down more and more of the platforms so be cautious where you fight.

It Ain't No Man - 15
Complete Predator Campaign on Hard difficulty setting

Beat all missions on Hard. Unlocks after the final cutscene once you are back in the main menu.

One Ugly Mother - 30
Complete Predator Campaign on Nightmare difficulty setting

General Information for Nightmare as Predator
To be frank, the first two missions are horrible. You don't have Alien Vision, no disc and no Spear and fighting Aliens in close combat can be difficult. Once you get your gear back it will be easier. To fight them in a effective way try to use the jump attack to weaken them. After a successfull block you can land two light attacks.

Preying Marines makes less fun than as Alien, since you are not so quick. To make your life easier look for a good place to retreat to and make use of the plasma caster or lay proximity mines and distract marines to them.

Don't forget to activate stealth with as it doesn't cost energy like in AvP 1+2 for the PC. If you are unsure wait awaits you in the mission, replay it on Hard and try to remember as much as possible. Good luck huntin'.


How to beat the Predalien:


Check at 3:40+ min how to kill it quite fast without much effort.

Game Over, Man! - 30
Complete all three Campaigns

Once you've beaten all campaigns, no matter which difficulty, you unlock this.

Weapon Achievements:

This achievements can be boosted online in ranked match. Need confirmation if it works in private matches, too. These are cumulative, so you can farm kills at a checkpoint or just try to get it during the campaigns.

Gunslinger - 30
Kill 30 enemies with the pistol

Since you have a Pistol right from the Start and infinite ammo on the lower difficulties, farm the kills against single aliens.

I Like to Keep This Handy - 15
Kill 2 enemies with one shot with the shotgun

You will encounter the Alien Matriach with lots of Facehuggern. Kill two of them and you are done with this task.

Elite Sniper - 15
Kill 10 enemies with head shots from the scoped rifle

Dismember Aliens by shooting them in the legs to make them crawl and finish them with a headshot.

Let's Rock! - 15
Kill 5 enemies with one burst from the smartgun

Once you receive the smart gun, just go straight forward up the stairs and wait until the first aliens climb over the wall. Now pull and don't release until the clip is empty or the achievement pops.

Spin Doctor - 15
Kill two enemies with one throw of the Battle Disc

Equip the Disc with . Once you throw the disc it will follow your laser so that you can steer into multiple enemies. Aliens take 1-2 hits until they die, so it is a matter of luck if you can kill two of them with one throw.

Stick Around - 15
Kill 20 enemies with the Combi Stick

Equip the Stick with and throw it at enemies. Synthetics and Marines are the best prey as the stop moving. Hitting aliens might be quite difficult.

Survivor:

Ain't Got Time to Bleed - 15
Heal or regenerate 30 blocks of health in Survivor

Do this in the level Mausoleum as the Aliens come one after another and it is not as crowded as in C Block. You can let the last Alien of the first wave live and hurt you, use a Stim and pick up another until the Achievement unlocks.

Scatter Shot - 15
As a team, kill 20 enemies in under 60 seconds in a Survivor match.

Set up a Survivor game with 3 friends and it should be quite easy to kill 20 Aliens in C Block the beginning of the round.

Collectibles:

Harsh Language - 15
Discover all 67 Audio Diaries

You can check the progress of your Diaries from the main menu and during the mission if you press . They are usually located on ground level or on tables/crates. Of course they will often be behind something so you have to explore all nooks and corners. Here is a collectible guide.

- Mission 1 Colony:
15 Diaries

- Mission 2 Refinery:
12 Diaries

- Mission 3 Jungle
14 Diaries

- Mission 4 Ruins
13 Diaries

- Mission 5 Research Lab:
9 Diaries

- Mission 6 Pyramid:
4 Diaries

Here is a video guide for the Diaries. Thx to ken007



Quite A Specimen - 15
Destroy all 50 Royal Jelly Containers

There are 10 Containers per Level. If you are close to one it has a marker around like the ventilation shafts. They can be on ground level or crates as well in Vents and higher places in some dark corners. Here is a collectible guide.

Grim Reaper - 15
Harvest all available civilians in the Alien Campaign

This is also kind of collectible since some Civilians are tricky to harvest. I won't specify each ones location, only the total per level and the ones who pose a problem to harvest. Each harvest is worth 500 points in the statistic screen. For those who have problems with these description of the civilians you can find another guide for this here.

- Mission 1 Research Lab:
Once you freed your brthers/sisters you enter some hallways with 2floors. You'll notice a civilian on the top level in a closed room. This one CAN'T be harvested and doesn't count towards the achievement.

- Mission 2 Colony 3 civilians:
After climbing up the Ventilation Shaft and exiting the sewers you will encounter one Marine with Motion Tracker and a civilian who escapes to the next room. If you force the door open he will shoot himself. Proceed through the hallway and enter the vent above the obstacles and slowly enter the room.

- Mission 3 Refinery 8 civilians:
After the first room with Marines, you pry open a door. One civilian will run away and trigger the elevator with two marines in it. There is also another who runs through the 2nd corridor and sometimes kills himself if you are not fast enough.

- Mission 4 Jungle 4civilians:
After you've been ambushed in a closed off room you have to open the gateway to the Hive. On the top level next to the switch is a civilian. If you go near him on ground level he will turn around and use a grenade before you reach him. So after you enter the room, cling to the wall/ceiling and ambush him with , and quickly press to harvest him.

Mission 5 7 civilians:
A quick overview where they are:
- The first is straight ahead and one level down next to an android.
- The second is on top of the middle pyramid next to an android, but the civilian might kill himself by falling off the the edge.
- The third is next to a pressure plate guarded by an android. Kill the android by suprise and DON'T walk on the pressure plate or you might burn the civilian.
- The fourth is on the opposite site of the first one but alone.
- The fifth is walking around starting behind the wall of the fourth.
- The sixth and seventh are inside the closed off pyramid.

Fortune and Glory - 15
Find all 45 Predator trophy belts

These collectibles are easy to find as you can see their locations once you press and hold . The location of the belts are indicated by a red skull like the achievement picture. Once you collect any collectible it is saved automaticly. Here is a collectible guide.

- Tutorial:
no Collectibles

- Mission 1 Jungle:
10 Collectibles

- Mission 2 Refinery:
10 Collectibles

- Mission 3 Ruins:
10 Collectibles

- Mission 4 Research Lab:
10 Collectibles

- Mission 5 Pyramid:
5 Collectibles

The last one is atop the structure where you set off the Bracer to destroy the Pyramid. To avoid the cutscene and to get a chance to collect the Trophy Belt, go left next to the stairs and jump from there to the structure's base and then atop the structure. Achievement unlocks right away.

Ranked Multiplayer:

Welcome to The War - 15
Play and complete your first Ranked Match in standard Deathmatch mode

Just play a Deathmatch game. It has to be free for all and not any team deathmatch.

Killer Instinct - 15
Win your first Ranked Match in standard Deathmatch mode

Win a deathmatch free for all and not a team deathmatch.

Serial Killer - 30
Win 10 Ranked Matches in any Deathmatch mode

Just win 10 Ranked Matches. You can choose between DM, species TDM and mixed species TDM. The easiest tactic is playing with a party consisting of 4 players. 3 should play as Alien or Predator and the last one as the other species. If the 3 are good the single player can sneak some kills as most players tend to play with a team of 3 Predators and/or 1-2 Aliens and the Preds usually only hunt the species with the most members.

Very Tough Hombre - 15
Kill 10 enemies in a row without dying in a Ranked Match

Either use the tactic as for "Serial Killer" or try to boost it. You need 2 Partys consisting of 4 Players and start to look for a Domination Match with 8 Playerlimit at the same time. If you get in the same game you have 60minutes to finish everything you need.

Persecution Complex - 15
Achieve Persecutor status more than once in any Ranked Match

To become a Persecutor you have to kill one player 5 times in a row without being killed. To boost it use the same tactic as for "Very tough Hombre".

The Six Pack - 30
Play with six friends in a Ranked Match

Look here for someone willing to do this if you don't have enough friends playing AvP. Start a lobby and invite your party and find a game. You need 7 people in the Lobby(You + 6 friends).

The Uninfected - 30
Finish a Ranked Infestation match as the only remaining prey

One player is an Alien and once it kills a Marine, the player becomes an Alien, too. So use your weapons wisely and be cautious. The best tactic is looking for a remote place and hoping that the aliens go straight for the pack. If you manage to stay hidden there, until you are the last man standing your chances are getting quite high to survive. Many people quit after they've become the alien.

Welcome to The Party - 30
Get 6000 XP in Ranked Matches

See "Real Nasty Habbit" for more information. Unlocks with Rank 27.

Real Nasty Habit- 50
Get 18060 XP in Ranked Matches

You have to play ranked games and reach Rank 43. There is currently no decent strategy how to accumulate XP in a short time yet.

Not Bad for A Human - 50
Get all the Aliens vs Predator achievements

The last achievement you will unlock. Pops up after the second to last one

Ain't Got Time to Bleed - 15
Heal or regenerate 30 blocks of health in Survivor

Attempt this with several friends in coop as you will die less and have more chances to use Stims/get some time until regen kicks in.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wonder if (assume) this counts playing as Aliens also? They are the only species that regenerates health, correct?

*edit* Thanks for starting the guide, looking good so far!

Well it looks like a good start so far, since you have barely played the game. Im sure it will be updated quite a lot within the next several weeks.

P.S. I like your Picture.

For the weapon achievments, Are they obtainable in either Story, Survivor, or online? Or is there a specific mode you have to play.

no you have 3 health blocks as marine which regenerate if they aren't depleted. predator has a health bar which depletes in segments if you watch when you are getting hit. anyway you can play survivor only as marine

erm i think you don't know how it is to live in germany as a gamer. AvP for instance will not be released here, since rebellion won't release a cut version, so i import most of my games from the UK or austria( NOT australia). if anyone doesn't believe can receive screenshots as evidence.

anyway i will try to get the pesky "traveler" achievement tonight in dragon age and maybe attempt to finish ME2 the first time while i switch between AvP. for those who know my guides, i will do my best to deliver my usual standart depth of information. however i think i won't do a collectible guide.

I hate aliens. Possibly the worst class to play.

Nice looking guide man. I'm hoping my local Blockbuster will have this title to rent and this will help me get the single player ones quickly at least.

I hope you update the Achievement Guide more. Just a tip for each "Complete the Mission Achievement" you should add tips for Beating the Mission.

He just got the game so wait. And also, that would be a walkthrough . . . isn't needed in a guide.

Nah,I agree with Boofer here.So many guides now just put "story related" in when it would take literally 2 minutes more to at least give an overview of the story level or mission.It shows much more effort and looks ten times better.

Also,granted if Cra has only just got the game,the guide may be a little threadbare,but if that is the case,people need to stop with the guides as soon as they have 10g in a game.

I look forward to seeing how it pads out as I know you have done other good guides before mate so that's not a bash at you.

can't wait for ht ecollectible locations.. need 2 adio tages (1 in 2 seperate missinons) and a few of alien/pred ones.

I am surprised tho your post wasn't met as my opionion of the game.
I postede about the length of the campaings and was met with numberous people saying i pirated the game. Hope that negativity and jealousy doesn't find it's way to your thread.

I'll be looking out for the location guide.

Nightmare is brutal, It rivals COD on Veteran. The problem is you get to points in the Predator campaign where even though you are high up and in Stealth mode, They can still somehow see you.

This game is going to frustrate ALOT of people on Nightmare.

No you cannot. Not really sure if there is a purpose for manual saves anyway, since it autosaves at every checkpoint.

And I have been working on Nightmare difficulty for the Predator, well just the first stage, and it is a bit frustrating to die and having to redo the entire stage. It's a damn strong 30G to get! lol.

It takes too long to heal yourself, by the time you activate it, you're may be already dead.

ok guys. i finished my first run through ME2 and completed dragon age. so i will work the next week on AvP. Playing Alien now on Nightmare.

I thought about the short "walkthrough" for each mission. yeah maybe i'll do something for tricky rooms as nightmare earns this title^^

I could have sworn I had heard there was no save feature and that you need to rely on checkpoints to auto-save for you, which is why Nightmare is so difficult.

Why are you wondering, anyway? You have the game. Why not check it out for everyone who doesn't and help with the guide?

you can manualy save, however it saves the progress since the last checkpoint and once you reload you restart at the checkpoint. dunno why they implented it. if you save on nightmare and reload you start at the beginning of the level.

added more information. hopefully that satisfies the critics for today

Thumbs up Dayum!!!

Hey hey, nicht schlecht, du bist echt schnell!
Kanns kaum erwarten das Game zu zocken.
Hab auch erst ME 2 auf Insanity beendet.

What would you say is the best race so far?!
Cause I'd love play as a Predator.

Great guide so far!!!

pred sucks in the first 2missions as the nice, handy gagdets are missing to kill aliens without much effort. will be a real nightmare...

so far i like the feeling as alien the best.

edit: wow finished pred on hard...fighting a pred alien sucks without spear gun. will tackle alien on nightmare and do marine tomorrow.
