About
My Gamertag is dataDyne 2023, I love writing guides and I already have two other guides in various forums! (Banjo-Kazooie Guide & Banjo-Tooie Guide) Perfect Dark is my absolute favourite game of all time, so when it was announced for the Xbox Live Arcade I was really excited and decided to do an achievement guide for it! For this guide I have used my knowledge from the n64 to bring the guide into a beta stage before the games release.

Introduction
This game is quite long and on the higher difficulties is very challenging. Perfect & Dark Agent will take time, patience, dedication and skill to complete. The multiplayer is packed full of features and was very advanced for its generation. The game also features a brilliant mode called ‘Counter-Operative’ where one player is Joanna and the other plays as the bad guys! All the achievements apart from a few should be pretty easy, even for a beginner.

Mini-Guide
Newbies to Prefect dark may want to start their campaign on Agent difficulty so they can break in the controls and such. I however recommend starting on Secret Agent because this way Perfect Agent won’t seem quite so hard! (of course you can always just go straight into Perfect Agent if your feeling brave).

There are 3 achievements which will be challenging:
  • Prime Target
  • Crowning Glory
  • Perfect Agent

If you start on Agent/Special Agent it would be a good idea to read through the crowning glory guide and pick up as many of the crowns as possible, also get the easier achievements like Act your age Joanna and Camera Shy. When you have finished your first playthrough you can either start Perfect Agent or Do the Combat simulator achievements. Naturally Golden Days and versatile will come first then do as many of the challenges as you can (if your having a hard time get a friend to help).

Next you should get the coop & Counter Op achievements, these are fairly easy and can be done with two controllers or over live. When those are done, return to the main menu and exit into the hub. Go to the firing range and get a bronze with all your new shiney weapons to get the Tools of the Trade achievement and mop up the weapons specialist achievements you still require.

At the end the last achievement you will probably get is Crowning glory, check what you have got left to do and mop them up for your well-earned 200 Gamerscore.







How's That For Starters? - 10
Complete dataDyne Central - Defection.

Difficulty: 3 / 10
Location: Single Player > dataDyne Central: Defection – Level 1
Requirement: Complete the first level on any difficulty

Level Walkthrough – Objective by Objective (on agent)

Objective 1 – Gain Access to the Laboratory.
All you need to do is get down to the ground floor and find the elevator leading to the underground lab.

Once the mission begins, jump down off the helipad and head down to the roof door. Shoot the guard here if he sees you, otherwise knock him out from behind. Head into the building, then as you reach the top of the ramp leading down; there'll be a guard right around the corner so get ready to shoot him. Head down to the next door and head down the stairs. You'll now be on the same floor as Cassandra's office. As soon as you enter the floor, call the elevator to your left and wait for it to appear. Jump in and head down to the ground floor.

Once there, leave the elevator and go down the stairs. Go left and head through the door there. A few guards in the next smaller room will greet you, kill them then go right around the corner and part of the wall in front of you will open. Go in and activate the elevator on the right to finish the mission.

Mission Complete and Achievement Unlocked! Well done!



Both Barrels - 5
Kill an enemy when dual-wielding

Difficulty: 1 / 10
Location: Single Player > any level
Requirement: Shoot 1 enemy while dual wielding any gun
  • Only small guns can be duel wielded
  • To dual wield a gun you need to pick up a second gun of the same type of the one your using.
  • Only specific gun pickups are duel wields (dropped by guard or placed in level).
  • Can be done on co-op

The first dual weapons available are on the first 2 levels:
  • Level 1 - Two floors below Cassandra's floor lies a room with a helmeted guard. Kill him and he will drop his Double Falcon 2 (Silenced).
  • Level 2 – You need to reach a weapons cache a long ways from the starting point without getting caught. When you begin, quickly close the elevator doors and listen for a guard walking on the metal in front of the elevator. When he’s gone, quickly open the doors and run to the right hallway until you reach a metal door, do not go through. Wait for the yellow hover bot to come and open the secret door to the left of the metal door. Run in and turn right. Break the glass panels on the side with your fists and jump down. Here is the tough part. Peek through the right corner here and make sure there are no guards. Run down the hall and into a small room with a computer inside. Activate the computer and you will earn duel CMP150s.

When you shoot your first enemy with duel weapons equipped the achievement will pop!



Act Your Age, Joanna - 5
Destroy Carrington's wine collection

Difficulty: 2 / 10
Location: Single Player > Carrington Villa – Level 4
Requirement: Shoot and destroy every wine bottle in Carrington’s basement

On the 4th level (Carrington Villa) Carrington is being held hostage in the basement of his house. When you first enter the basement you will notice a lot of wine bottles scattered throughout. All you have to do to gain this achievement is destroy every last bottle.

When all of the bottles are destroyed you will hear Carrington say: “act your age Joanna” and the achievement should unlock. (On a side note all of the bottles are in the basement and if enter the last room of the basement where Carrington is, the level will end and you will need to start again).



Double 64 - 10
Kill 128 enemies using secondary fire mode

Difficulty: 3 / 10
Location: Single Player > any level
Requirement: Shoot 128 enemies using a gun’s secondary function

Secondary functions on the guns are activated by pressing , simply change to the secondary function of any of the guns you are using and start racking up the kills.



Camera Shy - 10
Destroy 5 security cameras.

Difficulty: 2 / 10
Location: Single Player > any level
Requirement: Shoot and destroy 5 security cameras

All you have to do is destroy 5 cameras by shooting them or blowing them up.

There are quite a few cameras on mission 1.1 (perfect), the higher the difficulty you play the more cameras there will be. You will more than likely get this just playing through normally.

NOTE: You must destroy 5 different cameras, it will only count each one once!

Deadly Laptop - 10
Kill 50 enemies using the laptop in sentry gun mode.

Difficulty: 2 / 10
Location: Single Player > any level
Requirement: Kill 50 enemies with a Laptop Gun Sentry

All you have to do for this achievement is get a laptop gun and put it into sentry mode with where there are a few enemies. Kill 50 and the achievement is yours.

Tips:
  • Sentry mode is the Laptop guns’ secondary function (will contribute to ‘Double 64’)
  • Laptop sentries have 50 bullets.
  • You can pick a sentry back up and re-place it.
  • You start with a Laptop gun on mission 7.
  • There is a secret Laptop gun on mission 1 (see secrets section)
Multiplayer Solution
In multiplayer, set-up a match where it is you against 8 peacesims and set all of the guns to laptop guns. The peacesims wont attack you unless you have a gun out and even then they just disarm you and run away.

Now you need to find an area with a laptop gun you can camp in. Just set a turret down and pick up/equip another laptop gun to lure the peace sims in. They will get mown down by your turret racking up the kills. When your turret runs out, set another one with your equipped gun and pick up/equip another.



Paci-Fist - 10
Complete any Solo Mission on Special Agent or harder using only your fists.

Difficulty: 8 / 10
Location: Single Player > any level
Requirement: Complete any level using only fists on SA

This is going to be one of the hardest achievements for new Perfect Dark players or gaming novices because you have a health bar and it can be removed quite quickly in special agent.

Tips:
  • Do it on Special Agent so there is less objectives
  • Avoid unnecessary fights - Try a stealthy approach
  • If you do have to fight use the disarm function, it disarms the enemy and hurts them.
  • When faced with multiple enemies go and disarm them first and then just run away. When you disarm them Joanna usually picks up their gun so they end up just chasing you. (watch out though because sometimes they have a backup pistol)
  • Memorise the levels when you play it through on agent and find an easy level with a short route
  • I would recommend doing this on Level 1, but levels 2,5 and 6 are also good for this (especially when trying stealthily)
  • A really easy method would be to do it on 'The Duel' just slap the 2 opponents for an easy win! (use the cover by the door when you can)


Tools Of The Trade - 10
Get a Bronze rating or better with all 32 weapons in the Firing Range.

Difficulty: 3 / 10
Location: Carrington Institute (hub)
Requirement: Collect 32 Bronze medals in the firing range

To obtain this achievement you need to complete the firing range challenges for each of the 32 weapons available with at least a bronze medal.

Some tips:
  • Bronze medals are simple to get so this should be fairly easy for all players.
  • To get a gun in the firing range you must have used it in single player.
  • There are 5 requirements for each challenge: Score limit, Time limit, Accuracy Number of Targets hit and Ammo available. See below for scoring:
  • Obviously it is best to aim for the centre of each target, but try and hit as many shots within the red boundary for a better chance of winning.
Also for more in-depth look at the firing range check out these links:
  1. Perfect Dark Recon's Firing Range Guide

Versatile - 10
Complete a Combat Simulator game using each of the six Scenarios.

Difficulty: 2 / 10
Location: Combat Simulator (multiplayer)
Requirement: Complete a game of each of the 6 modes.

The six scenarios are basically the game types. Here is a detailed guide on the six game types:
  1. Combat (Deathmatch)
    This is the standard 'kill each other' mode. The aim of this mode is to get more kills than everyone else or the opposing team.
  2. Hold the Briefcase
    This game mode requires the players to get the randomly placed briefcase and hold it for the longest. The person who holds it longest at the end is the winner. Players need to kill the briefcase holder to pick it up.
  3. Hacker Central
    Players must find the Data Uplink and hack into the terminal to score points. Both items are randomly placed and marked on the map. If a player is killed with the uplink it moves to another random place.
  4. Pop a Cap (Kill the VIP)
    The aim of this free-for-all scenario is to kill the target. The target is picked at random and all players must fight to kill them. Whoever kills the target will get two points and someone else will become the target. The target gets 1 point for every minute of survival.
  5. Capture the Case (Capture the Flag)
    Each team has a case. The objective is to get the other teams case and return it to your own while keeping your own safe.
  6. King of the Hill (Zones)
    Players fight to capture sections of the map (zones). When a member of a team is in it they capture it and start scoring points. The other team will need to kill the players in the zones and neutralize them to capture and start scoring points themselves.
All you need to do is complete a match for each one.



Golden Days - 10
Complete a Combat Simulator game on Felicity, Complex or Temple using Classic Weapons.

Difficulty: 2 / 10
Location: Combat Simulator (multiplayer)
Requirement: Complete a game on a Classic(Goldeneye) level with Classic Guns.

All you need to do is finish a match in any game mode on one of the classic Goldeneye maps with 'Classic' Goldeneye weapons. The weapons are listed below:

The Classic Levels:
  • Felicity (Goldeneye: Facility)
  • Complex (Goldeneye: Complex)
  • Temple (Goldeneye: Temple)
The Classic Weapons:
  • PP9I (aka: PP7)
  • CC13 (aka: DD44 Dostovei)
  • KLO1313 (aka: KLOBB)
  • KF7 Special (aka: KF7 Soviet)
  • ZZG 9mm (aka: ZMG 9mm)
  • DMC (aka: D5K Deutsh)
  • AR53 (aka: AR33 Assault Rifle)
  • RC-P45 (aka: RC-P90)
Make sure to use a set with the word 'Classic' in front of it.

Prime Target - 10
Complete every Challenge up to and including 29, the 10th Prime number.

Difficulty: 8 / 10
Location: Combat Simulator (multiplayer) > Challenges
Requirement: Win Combat Simulator challenges 1 - 29

This is probably one of the hardest achievements to get in the game. A lot of the earlier challenges are easy but some of the later ones are pretty hard and you will find yourself up against DarkSims a few times!

Tips:
  1. Learn the levels beforehand, getting to know where all the good items spawn or where shields may be can be a life saver.
  2. While it may be easier for some people using more players, doing so will add more simulants.
  3. Use laptop gun sentrys where available (especially on defence challenges)
  4. Below is a list of the challeges. The challenges are set out like so:

    Scenario *Allies v Simulants (No. Simulants 1P) on Level [Difficulty]
  • 1 - Combat v Meatsims (1) on Skedar [Easy]
  • 2 - Combat v Meatsims (1) on Area 52 [Easy]
  • 3 - Combat v Meatsims (1) on Pipes [Easy]
  • 4 - King of the Hill v Meat & Easysims (1) on Skedar [Easy]
  • 5 - Combat v Meat & Easysims (1) on Complex [Easy]
  • 6 - Hold the Briefcase v Meat & Easysims (4) on Area 52 [Easy]
  • 7 - King of the Hill v Easysims (1) on Warehouse [Easy]
  • 8 - Capture the Case v Easysims (1) on Skedar [Easy]
  • 9 - Combat v Normalsims (1) on Ravine [Easy]
  • 10 - Capture the Case v Easysims (1) on Temple [Easy]

  • 21 - Hacker Central v Hardsims (1) on Grid [Hard]

  • 23 - Combat v Hardsims (2) on Complex [Medium/Hard]
  • 24 - Capture the Case v Easysims (4) on Fortress [Medium]

  • 28 - Capture the Case v Darksims (2) on Villa [V.Hard]
  • 29 - Combat v Darksims (2) on G5 Building [V.Hard]

There are a few in-depth guides kicking about on the internet:
  1. Perfect Dark Recon
  2. GameFAQs
When you have completed all 29 of the Challenges your rightfully earned achievement should unlock!



A Friend Indeed - 10
Complete any mission in Co-operative Mode.

Location: Co-operative > any level
Requirement: Just complete a level in co-op

All you have to do for this achievement is get friend on XBL or in offline splitscreen and complete any of the missions on any difficulty (all levels in a mission). I would recommend Carrington Villa on agent as there is only one level and it is quick.

Location: Counter-operative > any level
Requirement: Just complete a mission in counter-op

All you have to do for this achievement is get friend on XBL or in offline splitscreen and complete any of the levels on any difficulty (all levels in a mission). I would recommend Carrington Villa on agent as there is only one level and it is quick.

Also to speed up the process have the counter-operative go round killing all his own men so it’s quicker for Joanna, then swap round. (Or the counter-operative could just take a suicide pill for every guard he becomes.)

Perfect Agent - 20
Complete the Solo Missions on Perfect Agent.

Difficulty: 9 / 10
Location: Story mode
Requirement: Complete the story on Perfect Agent

Complete the single player story on Perfect Agent difficulty (Hard)

Perfect Dark’s Single player campaign consists of 17 levels. They start off pretty easy but get hard towards the end. If you played through on easier difficulties first you will notice that there are new objectives, much fewer shields and different weapon pickups, as well as the substantial increase in AI accuracy.

There are no checkpoints on Perfect Dark’s levels, nor do you have COD/Halo style health regeneration, meaning you have to do the whole level with your health meter. Stealth and duck and cover is a major part of the gameplay here, you will find yourself popping in and out of cover repeatedly taking a shot or two each time.

Tips for Perfect Agent:
  • Always aim for the head. While enemies die with a few shots, headshots are an instant kill (if an enemy doesn’t have a shield) and will help to preserve ammo.
  • Always look for a shield, if you find one in previous playthroughs on Agent check to see if it is there on Perfect Agent (there are very few though)
  • Look at this guide for secret weapon locations to pick them up on your playthrough. They can come in very handy
  • Take your time, don’t attempt to play like COD or Halo, this is a different style of play and you do not have regenerating health either!
  • Game guide 1: Perfect Dark Recon
  • Game guide 2: Perfect Dark IGN Guide

Completing the story on any difficulty may not unlock the lower difficulty achievements. Another user has played through on Special Agent and did not get the achievement for Agent

Great guide so far dude
couple of things i'd say atm, estimated time to complete could probably range from 12-36hrs depending on whether you've played it before or not
Cheats do affect achievements as if i remember correctly you couldn't play levels you'd not already completed with cheats on so you can't use them to get the perfect agent one etc, i'll probably test the others out as well may try to get hurricane fists before i get pacifist and see if that works

Also in the road map nice intro but i hope your also going to add a mini walk through of what order things should be done in
i personally would recommend play through of campaign on special agent followed by one on perfect, then do the challenges followed by any miscellaneous ones you have

Yes but, for all you know one of the missions is different, just because you have the N64 version doesn't mean it will be an exact port.

Fair point, but, from the mouth of Ken Lobb himself (summarised): "PD XBLA is a port with updated graphics, re-skinned guns, a high frame rate etc... but the game itself remains true to the original"

i can guarantee you 100% that it's an exact port with things added, thats what ken lobb (and one of the guys at 4J) have said anyway
if they've changed it i may have to kill someone, nevertheless being an achievement guide with pretty much self explanatory achievements should also take care of that

Excellent start to guide, Glad the crown one isnt that hard. Do you think it could be done with 2 pads? For example start a death match with no bots just you and a other pad, shot him in head and then leave time to run down? Because then you woud have most head shots, least deaths etc etc

Great guide so far. It's nice you can get it done early since it's an older game.

we sure thats what crowning glory is?
if so i reccomend starting a game in combat simulator with a second controller first to 1 kill all weapons as the DY357 Magnum then just pick up on find the second player and shoot him in the head, all 4 awards should be obtained

For the weapon ones, the psychosis gun can also be found in mayan SOS (think it's mission 11) but as you say may not be needed (doubt it as as kind of hard to kill with psychosis gun )
for the farsight you should find one on mission 6-2 (Deep Sea - Nullify Threat) on SA or higher
Also for the Calisto NTG your not given one on mission 8 you have to disam the mayan buddys to get it

I remind a trick beating the challenges... hmm

edit:

found it

  • Beat the Challenges, without actually playing them!



    All that is needed are 2 controllers, (3 or 4 if you want the remaining stars), and a simple scenario.

    First, plug the 2 controllers in and head to Combat Simulator with a simple scenario saved (such as 1 MeatSim, Kill Limit 1). Take the 2nd controller, head down to ''load game'' and highlight what you will (in the future) use for your Challenge. Take your 1st Controller, and pick a difficult Challenge, such as Challenge 30, and select it until it says ''START CHALLENGE'' (the background will be red at this time). Pick up your 2nd controller, load your simple game, and start your Challenge.

    What you just did was fool the game into thinking you're playing the Challenge, but you're actually playing a homemade scenario! Kill the MeatSim, and it's a game won. You will gain the star for the Challenge, and it's rewards gained from beating it.

Yeah i remember that glitch, used it to do a couple of the ones i'd already done on like 2 player on single, can't go in the guide though as don;t think your allowed to include glitches in ti only the way the achievement is ment to be got legitamatly
I also sort of hope they've taken it out or tbh we reallly will see people completing the game in a day

I don't know if it is allowed to put this into a guide, but i thougt it could help people getting the achievement, even if its not in there.
I see myself in the felicity toilet with the back against the door so that it could not be opened by the bots and waiting untill the time has runned out to win the challenge XD
Some were really fun ^^

Not 100% but that is the medal/award system in the original. Of course, if its a new feature I will update my guide immediately!

Ah now I remember! Thank you (updated) Just realised though, you can't kill people with the psychosis gun so if it did count it would have to be friendly kills!

Just thought I'd point out that you've put destroy 10 cameras when the achievement says to destroy 5?

In regards to the Pacifist achievement, I was trying to run through Chicago with no guns cause it seems like the quickest level, but I remembered you have to throw a remote mine on the door to complete the mission. I wonder if something like that would disable getting the achievement, since you're technically using something other than your fists?

If we find out it does, might be good to make a note of that in the guide.
