Achievement Guide and Roadmap


Achievement Guide by Tyger7

Overview

-Estimated achievement difficulty: 5/10
-Approximate time: 20-25 Hours
-Offline: 44 (980)
-Online: 1 (20) You can gain achievements via split-screen, but online co-op will make things easier if you don't have someone local to help.
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 Story, 1 Co-op, and various game modes.
-Number of missable achievements: 0
-Glitched achievements: The Realistic mode glitch people were having was solved with an update. Anyone who does the update will gain the achievement after the update if it was glitched prior for them.
-Do cheat codes disable achievements? No cheats.
-Does difficulty affect achievements? Yes.

Introduction:

The achievements for this game are pretty straight forward and you may only need some assistance on a few of them. Realstic mode doesn't prove too difficult, and with a secured cooperative partner, you should have a fairly easy time gaining the multiplayer achievements.

Step 1: Campaign (Realistic Mode)

Start on the hardest difficutly so that you can gain all of the achievements related to the story in one playthrough. Make sure you don't change any settings and do not dashboard in order to gain other various achievements. Do not use level select until you've finished the campaign. Follow the challenge guide and get tons of upgrades early on to make things easier. There is an achievement regarding killing or not killing a specific character. After you've chosen one route, you may hit continue from the main menu and replay the last mission on rookie. Then just breeze through it and choose the opposite. You may play cooperative inbetween your solo campaign if you'd like, it will not harm your solo campaign.

Step 2: Cooperative Mode (Realistic)

There are only 4 main missions in this mode and it's easier than the single player. You should have an online partner or refer to the achievement trading thread to find one. You may also do this split-screen if you'd like. This mode will help you secure the last of the weapons as well. If you're co-op partner is also going for achievements, you should replay the last level on rookie to let them obtain the Survival achievement themselves. The one online achievement is for inviting an xbox live friend to play in an online mode. Once the mission starts the host will aquire the achievement. Exit out and have your partner host as well to be fair.

Achievement Trading Thread

Step 3: Game modes (Hunter, Last Stand, Face-Off)

You can pick the various game modes in the menu. I suggest doing this after you've completed the campaigns and challenges, so that you can have everything upgraded. These can also be done split-screen. If you're decent at the game you can actually do everything split screen with only you playing. These might pack some of the harder achievements.

Conclusion:

After completing the single and cooperative campaigns, you should have all the weapons and be able to upgrade all of them and the uniforms with leftover points. Just make sure you get those challenges done. As far as the cooperative mode goes, doing the Last Stand waves will most likely take you longer than the cooperative campaign. This will probably be your only struggle, especially if you had a hard time on the single player campaign. Once you finish the various game mode related achievements, you should be done.

Realistic Difficulty 50
Complete single player story on "Realistic" difficulty

Start the campaign on Realistic Mode. The major difference between this and other difficulties, is the enemy awareness. It is far less forgiving. Still, it will not prove to be too extreme. You will die, but the game has several checkpoints that aren't all that far apart. If you complete challenges early on (hit start to see what they are) then you will have enough credits to upgrade your weapons at weapon stash locations and in the various game mode start screens. You will gain weapons as you complete missions. You really won't need too many tips, but I will provide a few useful techniques to keep in mind.

-Weapon stash locations refill all of your ammo and gadgets. If you run into a difficult scenario, use what you have. Chances are afterwards you will be able to refill anyways. A lot of times you'll be able to run back to it to restock.

-You have unlimited pistol ammo. Using silenced weapons will make this game a lot easier. Personally the submachine gun MP5-SD3 was a great choice for a secondary weapon. It comes silenced and has great zoom. For a pistol, once unlocked the Five-Seven may just be the only pistol you carry.

-If an enemy is alerted, run! Your character creates a "last known location" which makes the game much easier. In fact, a lot of areas you may feel like the best solution is to just shoot everyone you see and run to create your own diversion.

-Try to always give yourself a hand to hand kill and keep marks only when you need to use them. Plan ahead!

Many people have complained that this specific achievement did not unlock for them. There was a glitch, and has since been updated. Anyone who had the glitched achievement can now do the update and gain the achievement automatically.


Co-op Realistic Difficulty 50
Complete the co-op story on "Realistic" difficulty

This is shorter and easier than playing the campaign solo. You should find someone that is willing to complete this all the way through. Split-screen works for this game mode as well. You will be able to revive each other and save one another from choke holds. In fact, if one player is downed, and the other is in a choke hold, you can still survive. The other player can still sit up and shoot the enemy that's choking as long as he's in range. This is a big difference from story, but makes it easier as it gives you a second chance. You also have double the gadgets. Playing single player (both players) will help a lot. You will both have upgraded gear and more weapon choices.


Quality Time 20
Invite a friend to join and participate in a co-op story or game mode session

This is the only achievement that technically requires an online connection. The host will gain the achievement, so once your friend joins and you start a mission, quit out so they can get it as well if they don't already have it.


Hunter 10
Complete any 1 map in "Hunter" game mode in co-op

You can do all of the hunter missions online cooperative or split-screen. If you really can't find anyone to play, you can sign in your second controller and play with that controller doing nothing (only having to move it to save you or to reach the next area). Just play the first map and pass all 5 areas.


Last Stand 10
Complete any 1 map in "Last Stand" game mode in co-op

This is also online cooperative or split-screen. I have tried starting from wave 15 but that did not unlock the achievement. Oddly, it unlocked after I started from wave 1 and got to wave 10 on the same level, during the end of that wave. If you do this with a partner, start from one and work your way to 20. You can retry from every wave, so it's not that tough.


Hunter Completionist 20
Complete all maps in "Hunter" game mode on rookie or normal difficulty

See "Hunter Master"


Hunter Master 50
Complete all maps in "Hunter" game mode on realistic difficulty

This game mode has 6 levels with various areas to travel to. You can keep track of which ones you have completed on which difficulty by the icon next to the level. If all three dots are red, then you have completed it on realistic. You may do this alone or with a friend. Having a partner does not effect how many enemies are on the stage. The amount of enemies are a set amount, but different in different areas as well as the number of backups that are called. Even if backup is called every time, it is still pretty easy (especially with a partner). It is suggested that you have completed the storyline and have done upgrades on all gadgets, uniform/s, and guns that you use. With a coop partner that has all the upgrades and has beaten the game, this mode will be very easy. It saves every area and has weapon stashes after each area. I suggest going in with as many gadgets as possible.


Last Stand Completionist 20
Complete all maps in "Last Stand" game mode on rookie or normal difficulty

See "Last Stand Master"


Last Stand Master 50
Complete all maps in "Last Stand" game mode on realistic difficulty

You will have to play through the 10 different levels (accessed by hitting down in order to reveal the other levels). This mode can be done online cooperative, split-screen, or by yourself. It's easier with a partner because you can revive each other. The number of enemies increases by 5 if you do have a partner along with you. There are a total of 20 waves in this game mode, but you are able to start from wave 15 on all maps and still get the achievement, leaving only 6 waves per map. Some of them do get pretty hard, so I will explain how to make it go by a lot easier.

On all of the maps there is usually a good vantage point where you can pick people off. Explore the maps to figure these out. Use silenced weapons and as many gadgets as you can. You can kill each wave, then die on purpose if you want to restock. Unlimited attempts! Here is an example video explaining some things.


If you would like more info on how to set the mode up and for a video covering every different level, please see the link below:

All Last Stand Levels on Realistic

Face-Off Completionist 20
Complete all maps in "Face-Off" game mode using any connection type

This game mode cannot be done solo. You have to have someone else you're playing against, be it an online friend or split-screen action. There are 6 main levels to complete. All of them include multiple sub-levels. To make things easy, set the time limit to 2 minutes. Just make sure you pay attention enough to ready up for each round. You may try for some challenges while you play, or just let your character sit there. There is no difficulty requirement for this mode.


Face Off 10
Win one match in "Face-Off" game mode on any difficulty

While you're doing the Face Off levels, you should win at least one match (the entire level results). Get a few points and go hide as long as the person you're playing against knows what's going on. If you want, you can join a random game and take your chances!


Preparation Master 30
Complete all prepare & execute challenges

There are a total of 12 challenges for this type, requiring 3 levels of completion. See "Well-Rounded" for more info.


Stealth Master 30
Complete all vanish challenges

There are a total of 8 challenges for this type, requiring 3 levels of completion. See "Well-Rounded" for more info.

Best Of The Best 30
Complete all Splinter Cell challenges

There are a total of 19 challenges of this type, requiring one level of completion. See "Well-Rounded" for more info.


Well-Rounded 50
Complete all challenges

The challenges are how you earn a form of currency, and are the only "collectible" if want to think of it that way. They can be accessed in all game modes, as your challenge completion follows your profile in each mode, each difficulty, and each replay of levels. Any time you complete one, it saves. Even if you die, retry, or flat out quit the game. They are all pretty easy to complete, as even the harder ones have tricks. Here is a guide I have composed to walk you through everything you need to know about them, including the best spots and best methods. There are also videos for some of the harder ones, just click the link below.

Challenge Guide


Weapon Upgraded 10
Purchase all 3 upgrades for any 1 weapon

Upon completing challenges you will earn credits for upgrades. You can upgrade any weapon you have completely by visiting a weapon stash in game, in any mode, or by accessing the upgrades via Deniable Ops and Coop and Multiplayer. Highlight any weapon and press to upgrade them. If done in the menu for Ops and Multiplayer, you must first choose highlight equipment and hit .


Gadget Upgraded 10
Purchase both upgrades for any 1 gadget

This is the same as "Weapon Upgraded" except you must do this on a gadget (grenade, Emp, etc). You will want to upgrade all of these anyways. The more challenges you complete early on in the game, the more advantage you'll have.


Weapons Expert 20
Purchase all 3 upgrades for all weapons

You will only be able to do this once you have completed a lot of challenges. There are more than enough points to upgrade all weapons, gadgets, and uniforms (including special DLC and Uplay). You do not have to worry about missing this. See "Weapons Collector" for a list of the weapons you must upgrade.


Gadgets Expert 20
Purchase both upgrades for all gadgets

There are 2 upgrades for every gadget, and upgrading all of them first will help out in the long run. They all have specific challenges associated with them, and make the game easier when upgraded. You must upgrade the following gadgets:

Frag Grenade
Remote Mine
EMP Grenade
Flashbang
Sticky Camera

You do not have to upgrade the portable EMP, as it has no upgrades.


Weapons Collector 20
Unlock all weapons in the weapon vault

There are a total of 17 weapons to collect. You gain these by playing and completing story based missions. In single player, you will unlock all of the associated weapons upon finishing the level Michigan Ave. To unlock the rest, play missions 1-3 of cooperative story mode. There is no worry of missing a weapon in the game as long as you complete the levels. You do not have to pick weapons from dead enemies to gain them. Also, there is confusion with the AK47. It is unlocked by playing the cooperative story, not by playing the Iraq level (even though that level has you using it). Just enjoy the game, you'll get these along the way. The ones marked "Silenced" come that way.

Handguns
Mk.23 (Silenced)
MP-446 (Silenced)
Desert Eagle
P228
Five-Seven (Silenced)
USP.45

Machine Pistols
Skorpion
SR-2M

Submachine Guns
MP5-N 2
MP5-SD3 (Silenced)
AKS-74U
UMP-45

Assault Rifles
AK-47
M468
G36C
SC3000

Shotguns
M-500


Variety 10
Purchase any 1 uniform

Unlike weapons and gadgets, this can only be done in the equipment screen in Ops and Multiplayer modes. Each uniform costs 200 credits.


Accessorizing 10
Purchase any 1 accessory for any 1 uniform

While on a uniform you've purchased hit to upgrade. Each uniform has 9 total accessories, but only 3 types. They cost 100 each.


Ready For Anything 20
Purchase all 9 accessories for all uniforms

You must purchase all accessories for all uniforms. There are a total of 6 main uniforms. They all come unlocked.


Fashionable 20
Purchase all 6 texture variants for all uniforms

When in the menu for uniforms, hit on the one you want to buy textures for. They must be purchased before you can do this. There are a total of 6 textures, only 5 of them costing you credits. This might be the last thing you want to upgrade, as there are no real perks to gaining them all.


Perfect Hunter 20
Complete any map in Hunter without ever having been detected on realistic difficulty

This will be one of the harder challenges in the game. You can do it the hard way, by actually playing and trying, or the easy way. Set up a split-screen game by yourself and play with an alternate account (can be a silver account). Only control the alternate account when you are going for kills. It is okay if you alert guards with your alternate account, even if they call in backup. I got backup called on me every section! Don't go too far from your weapon stash (which is where you should have your main account hidden). Kill as you see fit, mostly from a distance and using gadget galore. When you're out, run to the stash. If you are downed, do not sit up. Let your main account revive you first. You should always shoot out lights around the area you are fighting at to ensure shadows for your main account. Enemies will wander off while you can revive and start the fight again. I did this and got the achievement while even being spotted for a brief second, but had killed him silently without alerting other guards. So if that happens, do not quit out, you may still be entitled to achievement.

Note: You must complete it in one go. The achievement will not unlock if you die and use the retry option.

Bonus: This can be stacked with the challenges "Advanced Stealth and Advanced Combat Mastery. This is where I got them personally, with the method described above.

Update: This game has patched this method, so that it will not work. You must clear your cache. Go to your dashboard and go to System. Go into Memory and press on your hard drive. Choose to do the maintenance. This will delete all game updates (this is good to do anyways if you play/rent a lot of games). Now sign offline and this method will work.

Last Man Standing 50
In Last Stand, survive all enemy waves of any map in one session without failing on any difficulty

To get this you will need to play Last Stand with or without a partner. It is strongly advised that you have a partner to speed things up. You must not die nor let the EMP get destroyed. Play it on the level you think is easiest. If you want the easiest possible way, follow my video guide. It shows you the best possible level and spot to make this achievement a breeze. You can do it by yourself even on realistic using this method. Remember to start at wave 1 and return to menu if you fail (then retry).


Uniform: +1 Gadget +1 Gadget + magazine, armor, or another gadget
Pistol: Five-Seven. Though you won't be using the 4 marks, you will be using it's silenced feature as well as it having laser sight. You'll get 20 shots out of it and it has increased range.
Alternate Weapon: I highly suggest my favorite alternate weapon MP5-SD3. Stocked with a silencer, it also provides extreme accuracy and good range. There is a 2x scope to help you aim for maximum precision.
A Partner: You can do this by yourself, but with so many people out there also needing this achievement, you may as well get it done faster. If you have no one you know of to play with, look in the "Achievement Trading Thread".


Revelations 10
Discover Anna Grimsdottir's dark secret

This is actually story related. You will get it within the Third Echelon level. There are no choices to be made, or anything special required.

Secret Achievements

These are all secret achievements, meaning some of them will contain spoilers. If you dislike having any info revealed early on, I advise you finish the campaign first. I will not be giving any more spoiler warnings beyond this point, as anything I write is strictly related to gaining the achievement, and not to the intent of discussing or explaining what happens.


Merchant's Street Market 20
Complete Single Player Story "Merchant's Street Market" on any difficulty

This is the first level in the game. It is set up as a tutorial to help you get used to the controls and features. Level Difficulty: 1/5


Kobin's Mansion 20
Complete Single Player Story "Kobin's Mansion" on any difficulty

This level will introduce you to stealth tactics for the most part, as well as climbing and dropping. It is a pretty straight forward level. If you find yourself taking a lot of time on this level, that is fine. After this level you will really start to have the hang of things! Difficulty 1/5


Price Airfield 20
Complete Single Player Story "Price Airfield" on any difficulty

This level steps it up a bit in difficulty. There are lots more enemies, and not much climbing involved. This is where you'll need to learn how to eliminate many enemies in small areas. Difficulty 3/5


Diwaniya, Iraq 20
Complete Single Player Story "Diwaniya, Iraq" on any difficulty

This level is a flashback. You will not be playing as Sam in this level. You have an AK47 and must rescue him. You have no stealth tactics and must utilize the long range of the Ak47 assault rifle. Difficulty 1/5


Washington Monument 20
Complete Single Player Story "Washington Monument" on any difficulty

In this level you'll be at a carnival. There are two main segments. First you must take out the "tails" following, which is actually very easy. The game saves after each one you do (there are 3). After this, you will be fighting a lot of angry enemies. You will be introduced to gadgets here, and can practice them and gain some challenges at the start. If you check the challenge guide I have two videos detailing this level in the Splinter Cell challenges. You may use the same route on realistic, but you will need to use gadgets to help. Difficulty 1/5


White Box Laboratories 20
Complete Single Player Story "White Box Laboratories" on any difficulty

You just may end up spending the most time on this level, as it has awesome opportunity for the challenges. It gives you lots of gadgets and a perfect area to do them in (check the challenge guide for info). This level involves quite a bit of climbing around. Difficulty 2/5


Lincoln Memorial 20
Complete Single Player Story "Lincoln Memorial" on any difficulty

This level is also pretty straightforward in what you have to do. You have to do some spy/filming, chase a guy through crowds of people, and then survive a couple waves of enemies before you can escape. Difficulty 2/5


Third Echelon HQ 20
Complete Single Player Story "Third Echelon HQ" on any difficulty

This level starts off with an area you have to be extremely stealthy in, and will fail if you get detected (or a body does for that matter). Refrain from shooting the cameras, as you will fail for doing so. This is probably the longest level. There is a room later on that requires you to pass through lasers. Once you get to the end of that said area, a helpful hint is to climb up and over. You'll know when you get there. You will be introduced to a thickening plot as well as a new type of enemy that can detect you even while you are hidden. You get sonar goggles finally! Also note, a good way to complete the Assault Rifle Marksman challenge is provided at the end of the level when you get unlimited Mark and Execute status (the only time in the game). There are around 16 or 17 enemies. You should pack your assault rifle along for this mission just for this reason alone. Difficulty: 5/5


Michigan Ave. Reservoir 20
Complete Single Player Story "Michigan Ave. Reservoir" on any difficulty

You might recognize this level if you played the demo. They changed it up a little bit this time around. After you save the scientist you will have to head outside for the rest of the level fighting more enemies and even an attack helicopter which is somewhat annoying on realistic. Difficulty 4/5


Downtown District 20
Complete Single Player Story "Downtown District" on any difficulty

This mission is fairly short. Make your way to the White House which is the last level in the game. You will have very limited stealth here, as you will not be able to climb anything. If you kill a civilian on accident you will fail, so avoid throwing random grenades in the crowd. You can go back to your weapon stash constantly to help. When you get to the White House, head to the left side while Sam is talking to Grim. a bunch of guards will appear, but since you're already passed them on the left, you can easily walk by the one guard in your path. Difficulty 2/5


White House 20
Complete Single Player Story "White House" on any difficulty

This level can be very annoying, as it's the last level. You will be fighting plenty of enemies along with Splinter Cells. The easiest way to do this level is to run back to your weapon stash and refill on gadgets. Keep hiding behind areas and throw heaps of grenades and other explosive gadgets. When you run out, go refill. Use the sonar to mark targets. I have suggested before using the Five-Seven. It has 4 marks when upgraded. Even if you don't have execute status, mark people. That way you can still see the icon through walls and can move around easier knowing where they are. This level can be hard, but easier if you use your gadgets and abuse the weapon stash refill. Difficult 4/5

St. Petersburg Banya 20
Complete CO-OP Story "St. Petersburg Banya" on any difficulty

This is the first co-op level. You will find this very easy if both you and your partner (split-screen or online) have upgraded gadgets and weapons. If not, it's still passable. They let you revive each other and the checkpoints in co-op are all seem very close to each other. Difficulty 2/5


Russian Embassy 20
Complete CO-OP Story "Russian Embassy" on any difficulty

This level isn't too much trouble. After figuring out what co-op is all about, you'll be able to pass this one with ease as well! Difficulty 2/5


Yastreb Complex 20
Complete CO-OP Story "Yastreb Complex" on any difficulty

This level gets a little trickier. It provides the closest thing to a boss that you'll see in the game. There is a big turret at the end that you must destroy by move a crate over it, and releasing with two controls on opposite sides. There is one challenge you will really want to work on that part specifically. The challenge is for killing 5 enemies while being downed. What you want to do is run to the turret and take a left trying your best to dodge everything (use EMP if you must). Once you get to a little staircase leading down into nothing, let yourself be downed and sit up. As your partner is in the middle still, killing enemies, more will respawn (two at a time). They will not notice you as they run by and you can shoot them in their backs. Retry for last checkpoint to give the challenge to your partner if needed. Difficulty 3/5


Modzok Proving Grounds 20
Complete CO-OP Story "Mozdok Proving Grounds" on any difficulty

This is the last level that you have to do. It resembles the Echelon HQ level from the single player campaign. You must not alert any guards/cameras (this time you can shoot cameras) for the first area. Then you have to do tons of climbing around and going lower via stairs. You then have to do a lot of co-op type sequences where you move an EMP through various chambers. This level has possibly the worst checkpoint distances in the game. Once you complete it, you're done! If you have not gotten the co-op related challenges by this point, now is the time. Specifically killing 5 people while downed. At the end before raising the door, let your parter get downed and help him out with lots of EMP. He should be able to take out 5 people here, there are plenty. Afterwards you will go to the sequence for the "Survivor" achievement. Difficulty 5/5


Judge, Jury and Executioner 10
Take down Tom Reed

In the White House mission, at the very end, kill Tom Reed. If you still need to spare him, skip the credits and go replay the mission on Rookie. You may try to hit the guide button or the start button right when the achievement unlocks in order to retry from last checkpoint. Depending when exactly it unlocks for you, it may already be too late, and you'll be forced to replay the level.


Man of Conviction 10
Allow Tom Reed to live

In the White House mission, at the very end, spare Tom Reed. If you still need to kill him, skip the credits and go replay the mission on Rookie. See "Judge, Jury, and Executioner" for more detail above.


Survivor 10
Battle your CO-OP teammate and survive

This achievement can only be obtained in the last level in co-op mode. After the level ends you must kill your partner in order to gain the achievement. Just make sure your playing with someone you can trust, so that they replay the level so you both get it. Just agree who will go first and please do not screw anyone out of their turn. You can replay the level on rookie (pick last chapter) and it will be quite a breeze after just playing it on realistic.

Guide is looking very good so far. You may want to add a few more ideas/strategies for completing levels.

Thinking about picking this up today, seems like an awesome game.
Looking forward to the guide.

Before everyone starts spamming his guide thread, let me say that it doesn't matter how many guides are written for this game. Not one has been submitted and approved yet so there's no point in telling him not to try his hand at it. The best guide, consisting of the best parts of each members' guides will be posted to the site. In other words, it doesn't matter if others have already started guides for this game too.

Well I'm writing it right now, literally! I've written guides for games that already had published guides. Sometimes my guides will offer an alternate route or view on how to complete something. If it helps one person, then at least someone was helped. I sure wish I could make the thread temp invisible for now!

Also, thanks Method.

Quick question.

Im looking to start the game on Realistic now I have finished it on Normal and had a couple of questions;

1) Can I just go through mission select levels and select Realistic difficulty to do, or do I have to start it from scratch?

2) If I start the game again or Realistic, will it keep all my unlocked gear?

You are able to replay all of the missions on Realstic, in any order you choose. You will still have your upgrades and completed challenges. The main thing is the level showing the three red dots to represent realistic has been completed for that level.

No problem, I did it all at once with no sleep while watching a movie, so if anyone can point out any mistakes, please speak up.

Last Man Standing 50 In Last Stand, survive all enemy waves of any map in one session without failing on any difficulty

To get this you will need to play Last Stand with or without a partner. It is strongly advised that you have a partner. If not this will be a lot more difficult. You must not die nor let the EMP get destroyed. Play it on the level you think is easiest. To help out, start on wave 15. This way you only have to do waves 15-20. It might be somewhat of a struggle, but with the ability to do it on Rookie mode with a partner, it shouldn't take long to accomplish it.
Are you 100% sure that you can get this achievement starting on wave 15?

Question about Perfect Hunter. Does this mean you can't have additional guards called in? Or does it mean you can't be spotted once?

I got the achievement doing it split-screen. I noticed like an idiot that I forgot to include the details on that achievement. This seems to be my bad luck for every guide I write. So, I have updated the guide with the achievement description. Thank you very much for pointing this out!

Personally I had additional guards called in every single time. Using splitscreen or a friend online, have them (or yourself on your second controller) killing everything while your main account stays hidden. I can confirm I got it this way. The achievement is profile related luckily, so your partner or second controller can screw up all they want.

This is the same as "Weapon Upgraded" except you must do this on a gadget (grenade, Emp, etc). You will want to upgrade all of these anyways. The more challenges you complete early on in the game, the more advantage you'll have.

Should Read:

*Changed the link, because for some reason you linked to the second page. Also, the red signifies an improper description.

PS. I also changed the format to follow the website "guidelines". (By putting the achievement description a line down).

Alright thank you for explaining it, i've been trying it solo and have managed to not get detected on about half of the areas but always seem to mess up toward the end. Looks like i'll be trying the split screen method.

Thanks, I've always put it next to the achieements. Thanks especially for helping on the link i had not noticed!

Update: Video added for Last Man Standing. Should help out a ton! Even on realistic!

So, just to clarify (because I don't want to waste a bunch of time), you've actually completed only 15-20 on last stand on all maps? I just want to make sure you can completely confirm that it works before I try it.

Tyger, you sure bout the Perfect Hunter Achievement as I have tried about 5 times now, not being seen once on my main account, not even moving my controller until I have cleared a zone and I still don't get the achievement. Is there something I am missing?
