Plow the Road35
Perform 5 kills in a round using overdrive

Can be done solo (Instant Action) or in multiplayer (Ranked or Private match)

If you do it in a Private Match with a friend, then have your friend Free Spawn in front of you after you are deployed. Stand beside your friend and run away from him and from the moment you go into overdrive mode, stop running and turn around and shoot your friend until he is one shot away from dying. Now run at him. You should hit the overdrive mode a few feet before you get to him and you will kill him instantly. Rinse and repeat 4 more times and the achievement will pop.

You can also do this with bots, but it may be somewhat harder. If you do attempt it with bots, remember that as long as you are running then it will hurt them, so if you miss the first time, do a U-turn and keep trying to hit him. Can only be done on enemy bots. Enemy bots on Trivial difficulty take about 2 hits to get killed by colliding into them in overdrive.

Revenge of the Falling25
Drop kill an enemy Anti-Air Turret

Can be done solo (Instant Action) or in multiplayer (Ranked or Private match)

An easy way to get this achievement, is to burn in using the Infiltrator loadout since this loadout is pretty resistent to air attacks while burning in, especially on an easy difficulty setting.
So, set game difficulty to "Trivial", combat mode to "No bots" and pick any map you like. Just make sure to burn in on a base that has only one turret and not two, as two turrets can kill you.

Choose "Free Spawn" and set your drop zone (crosshair) on an AA-turret, and start burning in. When the game tells to press to brake, DON'T! Just crash onto it!
You might be lucky and destroy the AA-turret on the 1st try. If you don't, equip your shotgun (which is the 2nd weapon with the Infiltrator loadout, so press to switch weapons) and shoot at the AA-turret until it's almost one or two shots away from being destroyed.

You will notice one (maybe two) repair drone(s) flying around the AA-turret to repair it. Destroy these repair drones.

Now, press and press or until you're on the "Dropship" tab. From the list, choose "Self Destruct".

Time to repeat the 1st step and burn in again on the AA-turret. Move the crosshair slightly if you noticed you've crashed next to the AA-turret on the 1st drop. Again, don't press when prompted.

Keep repeating these steps until you crash & destroy the turret, and the achievement unlocks immediately.



Army of One15
Win a complete game of One Man Army

Must be done solo (Instant Action) - Can be glitchy

You can play however you feel comfortable with, as long as combat mode is set to "One Man Army" and you have to win the game or course. From the main menu, choose Instant Action. Easiest settings are the same as usual:
- Map: pick any you like
- Mode: MUST be "One Man Army"
- Difficulty: Trivial
- Players: 8

In regards to the glitchy part, I used above settings on the Nuclear Dawn map, won the game but the achievement didn't unlock.
Used the same settings over again but this time on the Edge of Oasis map, and got the achievement.

Insanity Defense20
Win a complete game of Super Swarm on Insane difficulty

Can be done solo (Instant Action) or in multiplayer (Ranked or Private match)

Alright, this one can be a real pain if you're doing this one solo.
It's better to have a friend helping you with this, since it'll make it way easier!!
If your friends don't have Section 8 or simply aren't online, and you don't want to do it on your own, you might be able to find someone in this thread to help you.

But in case you want to try it by yourself, following strategy might be helpful (works in co-op as well)...

First, start Instant Action from the main menu using these settings:
- Map: Orbital Relay West
- Mode: Super Swarm
- Difficulty: Insane
- Players: 8

Choose whatever loadout you like to play with. I used the Infiltrator loadout but equiped with the Assault Rifle as primary and Rocket Launcher as secondary weapon. I also equiped the Repair Tool and Det Packs.

Now, set drop zone to control point number 2 and start burning in. The AA-turret will lower your shields but not kill you. Once arrived, start hacking the control point (CP) and put all 5 Det Packs on the CP and get the hell out of there.
The enemies will possibly swarm the CP and once they are close enough, it's time to press to detonate the Det Packs and kill some of them.

Don't bother capturing CP2 over again (nor CP3). Instead, it's time to focus on killing as many and as quickly enemies as you can, as it will add to your score but more important you'll get money. If you're not skilled in killing enemy bots, use your Rocket Launcher to destroy assets instead. It takes approx.2 rockets to destroy Minigun Turrets, Array Sensors and Supply Depots and it takes approx. 4 rockets to destroy an AA-turret, but the money you get isn't rewarding.

Once you have enough money (60$ or more), go back to CP2 and kill the enemies. CP2 is important as it is the only of the two control points that can be accessed by air transports. You'll understand why in a moment...
When clear of enemies, start to hack CP2. Once hacked AND captured, deploy 1 Supply Depot and 1 Minigun Turret as close as possible to CP2. Keep enemies away as best as you can until deploy!
Once deployed, the Minigun Turret will start killing enemies as they enter the base, giving you score points and money. When they are trying to destroy the Minigun Turret, the Supply Depot will start repairing it if deployed close enough.

As soon as you have another 60-100$, deploy 1 more Supply Depot and 1 (preferably 2) more Minigun Turret(s)s as close as you can to the first set-up.
This is tactically an important part of the battle: enemies trying to enter the base will suffer from heavy fire from the Minigun Turrets. If they are trying to destroy the Supply Depots, the Supply Depots start repairing eachother.
It will also guarantee that CP2 won't be easily captured over again by the enemy and you get points every now and then for each CP captured.
If the enemy succeeds in destroying one or more deployables, you should have hopefully enough money by now to set the same deployables back active.

Now you can focus on the DCM that are and/or will become active. More information about the DCM can be found here.
You're main objective should become now: 1) be victorious on the DCM that become available to you, and 2) make the enemy fail the DCM that becomes available to them. Being victorious on your DCM will give you score points, and none for the enemy.
Making the enemy fail their DCM, will increase your score and not theirs.
Don't bother killing enemies (unless necessary to get the DCM done) or capturing control points.

While doing the DCM, try to repair things on your way when you see a wrench above the item to be repaired!
You get 1 Support Feat for every 3 repairs, and you'll need several Support Feats to activate the Convoy DCM. To find out what it'll cost you (costs vary sometimes!) to activate a DCM, press and go with the or on the "DCMs" tab.
More information on how to get Feats can be found here.
It is important you understand the mechanism of Feats in order to activate DCMs!

Your kills with the Assault Rifle will contribute to activate the Outpost DCM which is 100 points for each victory!
The Convoy DCM is important as it is a heavy armored (but slow) vehicle, and has some powerful weapons on board as well. Very helpful against the enemy's Commando and VIP DCMs!! But also a great asset to defend your base.
And remember, if your Convoy needs to be repaired, go as close as you can to the Supply Depot in CP2 or use your Repair Tool (or even better, both of them!)

If the enemy activates the Intel DCM that you have to pickup, don't bother. It'll be located high on the huge satellite dish and there will be 4-6 enemies, which means getting killed quickly (and giving points to the enemy side). Instead, go capture their CP for fun.

If the enemy activates the Bomb DCM, go with your Convoy to your base. They'll probably won't make it there, because of the 3 Minigun Turrets you put in place killing the enemy as soon as they try to enter your base. This will give you 35 points for them failing.

Good luck!

This achievement will also contribute to the Swarming Behavior achievement.



Immortal Sovereign25
Win a complete game of Swarm without dying

Can be done solo (Instant Action) or in multiplayer (Ranked or Private match)

The achievement's desciption is pretty clear, and doesn't say anything about the difficulty. So, we're going to make it easy for ourselves. Any map is OK.

An easy method that worked for me was:
- Settings: Nuclear Dawn map, Swarm combat mode, Trivial difficulty, 8 players, Friendly Fire OFF
- Loadout: Guardian but equiped it with Assault Rifle as weapon 1 and Rocket Launcher as weapon 2. I also had the Repair Tool and the Det Packs.

I focussed mainly on hacking and capturing check points. The few bots that came to me trying to capture the control point were easy kills with the assault rifle since it was on trivial difficulty.
As soon as the DCM (Dynamic Combat Mission) became active, I focussed on doing those to increase the score quickly. If you have to do a DCM but there are too many enemies involved, stay away from it. Let your friendly bots do the job, and focus on another DCM if active, or otherwise capture control points if any available, or kill enemies one by one.
When hurt, heal using the repair tool!



Swarming Behavior50
Win a game of Super Swarm on all maps

Can be done solo (Instant Action) or in multiplayer (Ranked or Private match)

In order to unlock this achievement, you'll have to win on the maps from the main game and the DLC as well. Winning on the DLC maps will also give you the All Your Basin, Buzz Kill and Dance with the Devil achievements. Be sure to set difficulty to "Trivial" to make it easier for yourself. The maps are:

Main game (8)
- Blackstone Marsh
- Edge of Oasis
- Invasion Point
- Land's End
- Nuclear Dawn
- Orbital Relay
- Stormfront
- Utah Crash Site

DLC (3)
- Azure Basin
- Devil's Backbone
- Hornet's Nest

See Insanity Defense for more information on increasing score.



For the Swarm50
Win a game of Swarm on Hard difficulty on all maps

Can be done solo (Instant Action) or in multiplayer (Ranked or Private match)

Similar to the Swarming Behavior achievement, except combat mode has to be set to "Swarm" and difficulty to "Hard". I suggest doing this with a friend, as the AI of your friendly bots won't be a big help.
Again, you have to win on all 11 maps.

Dance with the Devil10
Win a Conquest game on "Devil's Backbone"

The three dlc maps can be done in a Ranked match or Private match. Start a private match and invite a friend. Make sure you win the match by doing the objectives that come up, taking over the bases, and/or just killing your friend. If you are doing this with a friend then you should win rather easily. Chances are you can get this with bots on here as well, since you can do it in a Private match.

Personally, I had an extra copy of the game, so I did it with myself. My dummy account got kicked out of the match for going idle, but I invited him back in, won the match, and still got the achievement.

Plow the Road35
Perform 5 kills in a round using overdrive


Can be done in a Ranked match or Private match with a friend/bots.

If you do it in a Private Match with a friend then; Have your friend Free Spawn
in front of you after you are deployed. Stand beside your friend and run away from him the moment you go into overdrive mode, stop running and turn around and shoot your friend until he is one shot away from dying. Now run at him. You should hit the overdrive mode a few feet before you get to him and you will kill him instantly. Rinse and repeat 4 more times and the achievement will pop.

Revenge of the Falling25
Drop kill an enemy Anti-Air Turret


Can be done in Ranked or Private match.

The easiest way to do it is to start up a Private match with a friend. The person getting the achievement needs to make a custom class with the modules 4x Armor Plating, 4x Deceptor Plates, and 2x on either Shield Booster or Stealth Matrix (Either is fine).

Now you two need to spawn as close to each other as you can. Have your friend come to you, that way he knows where you will land when you die. Your friend needs to kill you twice to get enough money to buy a deployable anti-air turret. Make sure not to change where you land so it will be in the same spot every time. When you die the second time, do not respawn. Instead let your friend put down the anti-air turret where you have been landing. He needs to shoot the turret until it is almost dead. Once he does this you can spawn as your custom class that you made. You will land on the turret without even having to aim.
