Ahh, no. You can get everything after finishing the game.

For the achievement Marksman (50 headshots)

this can be done with any weapon.
just aim for their heads while shooting ^-^

it's also a good way way to quickly dispose of enemies when you only have handgun bullets left, 1 shot to the head is usually an instant kill,which also saves alot of ammo

Great guide rrushn!

That's what gets me about this game. Damage seems random. Sometimes an Elite will go down in 1 bullet, sometimes 4. Sometimes I'll get shot a little, and take little damage, sometimes I'll lose a lot more. Weird...

Also, Generals go down with 1 headshot, always, at least in my case. Are Elites better than Generals? That doesn't sound right to me.

Wrecking ball makes me wanna wreck my own balls. D:

Still looking for consistent ways for getting 5 kills with it. I had a fully detailed tip from someone on xbl, but I didn't manage to get kills with it consistently. I managed to get 4 in a row once, but was inside a race challenge so they didn't save when I died.

Rage ensued.

The biggest problem is that I can't find any consistent way to put up in the guide. Sure, I would get the achievement with getting a kill here and there, but that doesn't help you lot. D:

Added 'Wrecking Ball' description.

I'm sorry people, it's an annoying achievement, nothing to do about it. Until someone finds out a sure-fire method, the ones I listed will have to do !
I'd look myself for other possibilities, but I've spent about 4-5 hours on testing methods and I'm seconds away of fusing my controller with liquid crystals.

I'm doing everything on experienced, but from what I've heard, hardcore isn't that much harder. In fact, normal is reported not to be very easy either.

To be honest, I started on Casual as I knew the game would be a long-haul, and wanted to enjoy the game instead of being pissed off all the way through, and even on this difficulty my vehicles get raped in no time. Same with my health.

It seems that the only difference in difficulty would be a slight increase in enemies, everything else, such as damage and AI ability, is just the same. I say AI ability, but there is a serious lack of the 'I' and 'ability' part.

I don't know if it already been said, but you can get the "Invincible Warrior" Achievement on the very first mission. I started a new game on casual, when I got to where you blow up the SAMS, i destroyed them both with the mini gun. Then I grapple hooked the statue and stayed up there killing the enemies. They keep spawning on the left and right. I left the APC since I know someone would go in it and its an easy head shot. Just make sure you have full ammo for the pistol and sub machine gun. I only used the pistol, 1 shot to the head. Hope this helps.

I have several solutions I'll be testing soon for the latter, so here's hoping it's only the first left and I'll consider this guide pretty much final.
I've been working on a little something to help that out. I've noticed that quite a few of the ones I was missing can be found in the race challenges. I'm working on a list of all the race challenges, what vehicle you get and where the race is located. Hopefully it will help a little atleast.

Yeah, noticed that too. Hoping to finish all faction missions today and fire up the challenges.

I'll be glad to PLAY the game for a bit, instead of finding ways to add to the guide. ;-)

Developers said that the only difference between the difficulties is that enemies are more, and get smarter in each difficulty. I was playing on experienced but I got pissed off because I didn't want to play a game like this and get frustrated so I quit and started on Normal, and it seemed like I didn't change the difficulty at all.

Yeah I'm playing on normal and I die... quite a bit. I have a level 6 shotgun, ricos signature gun which is a level 6, level 3 smg, level 3 frags and level 3 c4.. and sometimes I still get outgunned. Whenever I do buy a vehicle it's a level 6 and even that usually lasts maybe 2 minutes.

As for "Wrecking Ball," I tried the truck tethered to a chopper method and I got 1 kill in before I had 3 choppers shooting me down. Scratch that idea. lol

I had my kills scattered with different methods aswell. For now, we'll have to accept that it is an annoying achievement but the methods listed are 'the best' others and I found.

Be happy you got a kill ! I think I've tried over 50 times to gather my 5 kills.

Nice guide mate, getting to the point now where I can start mopping up some of the achievements I don't have and the wrecking ball really is a pain.

Maybe an idea to put the percentage increases behind the things you need to do to get to 75%?
I know a resource item is 0,01%, so is destroying something from the military, finding a faction item is 0,03%. These are all per item.

I can check for the colonels, races and faction missions if you want?

You can check the faction missions if you want, I already completed all of them, so I can't check these anymore.
If someone can track the % of Story Missions too by saving before and after, then check the increase, I can make a quick calculation of how many % you will have by completing all the achievements (1k crates, 150 f-items, 1k sabo,...)

if u play on hardcore mode then would u get the achievements for completing 50 and 75% on normal mode?

also, after watching the video for invincible warrior, maybe u could do all the grappling hook kills at that point too, maybe even wrecking ball if u could get a vehicle there.

It's explained in the roadmap.

Nice work with the guide mate. Just wanted to point out though that the achievement picture for "Follow Me!" is wrong. You've used the melee kill one twice

Look forward to future updates. Keep up the good work.

Yeah, someone pointed it out earlier, but I forgot to change it. I'll do it now !

Well, you do need to collect 150 for an achievement, along with % to reach 75% completion. If I'm near 0.03%, I'm not going to let it slide.

I'll check the faction missions tonight. It seems that the challenges sometimes give me 0,1 % completion and other times 0,09%, but maybe that's from the 0,005% you get from destroying military objects.

Story missions % is impossible to get exactly, maybe roughly, but you don't see the completion % until after you finish the story.
