If you really want the whole story then start with Half-Life 1 on PC. But yah, start on Half-Life then Eps 1 then 2.

Has anyone gotten the "Team Doctor" achievement from TF2 to unlock? I healed over 25000 (my counter was actually almost 26k during the game) but lost connection to the game before it ended. The achievement didn't unlock, but shows as completed in game and shows 25,000/25,000. I've tried playing again as Medic and finished a couple more games, but still haven't gotten it to unlock. Anyone know anything about this?

Wouldn't it be great if Youtube had videos of the grub squashing achievement, the lambda caches, etc? I know there are some text guides for some of these achievements but videos would help. Also, for the Lambda caches, if I beat the game but I don't get all of the caches, can I just start over (on any part of the game) w/o the counter reseting to 0? Half-life 2 is pretty damn long, and I wouldn't want to restart from the very beginning to get the very few I missed. (Sorry if this has already been discussed, I'm too lazy to check if it has) :B

Boom.
God, you guys complicated your lives. You just had to press the action button (X) where you see yellow and purple buttons on the right side of the mini-teleporter simultaneously. So the cactus teleports back and forth very quickly. :B

yeah with the grubs ive checked the guide and it says 93 in chapter one, well when i get to the drop that leads to chapter 2 i only have 90, i know theres one in a locker that i missed so make it 91 but im having a hard time finding the other two. It says in the guide before the vorigaunt saving alix which is in chapter two isnt? so the two grubs at the beginning of chapter two, do they count as part of the 93?

EDIT: nm that, now i cant find these 2 grubs at the top of the ceiling, im stuck on 224/226 according to the fuide, anybody got a screen of the two?

I'm having trouble doing the "One Bullet" achievement in Episode 1. I'm at the part where you are in the elevator shaft with 3 barnacles above you. How are you supposed to get up the shaft if you are not allowed any bullets? All I can use are grenades and the Gravity Gun and neither one of those do any good.

Any suggestions?

Edit: Nevermind. I got through it.

most of the multiplayer achievements on the guide just say "get some friends that will help." Does anyone have any hints for getting the achievement without help from friends? thanx

Friends and little rocket man

both of these are making me want to shoot myself in the head. I'm stuck at the train-yard with the gnome and he won't stay in. Any tips on that or friends like these?

Friends like these...: just tell everyone in the game you need the achievement and FR them all. They will usually accept providing they need it too.

Whew. Welcome to the club. I am still looking for "hints and tricks" on this one. This one is a pain in the buttocks. Let me make these recommendations (I have him all the way to Under the Radar, so far):
  1. Put him in the car, just below the steering wheel;
  2. Put him in the car, through the back window by jumping on the back of the car and crouching - he sticks there the best, but will fall out with any serious bumps:

3.Throw his little pain in the ass as far as you can in front of you, drive to him, and repeat. I would save after each significant progress you make when driving and throwing. Sometimes you'll throw him out of the map!

Hello

Can you please help me on the Targetted Advertising Ach. ?

i have read the guide

Quote:
Just before you cross the bridge to that farm with many foes, there is a big car pile up. If you look next to it, there is a hill with a tree on it. Get up the hill and there should be a corpse with the crossbow. The player should still be able to stick that guy from the hill provided they aim slightly above the target.
But i don't seem to locate that hill, or that tree, or that farm. Is that hill before or after i meat up with some allies and that guy ghives me the rocket launcher...? After I destroy that gunship...i drive away to some farm...and i see a hill but i don't know how to get to it..is that one ?

Please help..and mabye explain a bit closer to my knowlege of english...

mabye a picture of that hill or something ?

Tnx...and I hope someone reads this ...

[i have finished the game and now i was turning back for the Targetted Advertising and the Zombie Chopper ach. I got Zombie Chopper but...no Targetted Advertising ]

5 Pin a soldier to the billboard in chapter Highway 17.

Get up the hill and there should be a corpse with the crossbow. The player should still be able to stick that guy from the hill provided they aim slightly above the target.

4 stickies or so down was the achievement guide. This is your first post so for future reference, look a little better and if all else fails, search. Welcome to the site and enjoy.

Hey I just got the "turret" achivement legit in TF2.

(Kill 10 people with a single turret)

Well my advice is to try to set up a turret in their base in 2fort. Try going back and upgradeing it.

that's how I got it got 12 before someone killed it

About the Pyro ach: does 'set five people on fire' mean 'kill them'? Or is that not necessary?
