Double post continuation!

Quote:
You'll Feel a Little Prick: Assist in killing four enemies with a single Ubercharge on a Scout
Two methods. Hope your scout knows his way around the scattergun and baseball bat, or boost it. Get 4 enemy scouts to stand in a line as he scatterguns the living daylights out of them.

Quote:
Autoclave: Assist in burning eight enemies with a single Ubercharge on a Pyro
Boost it. Or, just hug a pyro on Granary, who will eventually get it as he zergs the starting position.


Quote:
Blast Assist: Assist in exploding five enemies with a single Ubercharge on a Soldier
Another easy achievement to boost, or just, again, go on a level like Granary where everyone gets together into a single position at the start.


Quote:
Blunt Trauma: Assist in punching out for enemies with a single Ubercharge on a Heavy
Haha, okay, I have to admit this one is kind of ridiculous, but you could not only boost this one easily, but get some comical satisfaction out of it as well.


Quote:
Medical Breakthrough: Assist in destroying eight enemy Engineer buildings with a single Ubercharge on a Demoman
Lots of complaints about this one. Eight buildings is two dispensers, two teleport entrances and exits, and two sentries all in the same room, built by your two boosting friends on the enemy team. Go nuts, mister Demoman.

Quote:
Midwife Crisis: Heal an Engineer as he repairs his sentry gun while it's under enemy fire
If you've played a medic on any level, you've already done this. Hug the engineer, and it will happen eventually. I guarantee it.
Quote:
Ubi Concordia, Ibi Victoria: Assist in killing five enemies on an enemy control point in a single life
You can get this boosting in conjuction with the Soldier achievement, actually, but if you're really stretched and want to do it legit, just play something like Dustbowl or well until you get it. Notice it doesn't say on the SAME control point, or in a time limit. You could even just get 2, retreat, get the other 3 later, as long as you haven't died.
Quote:
Grand Rounds: Heal two hundred teammates after they have called for Medic
Well I know I would boost this one in a heartbeat, but a vigilant medic will have no problem getting this over the course of playing the game for fun.

Quote:
Infernal Medicine: Extinguish one hundred burning teammates
Since you will usually be confronted with 2-5 burning people at once in the face of Pyros, this would come easily.

Quote:
Doctor Assisted Homicide: Assist in killing twenty nemeses
If you boost, you know that everyone is eventually EVERYONE'S nemesis over the course of an hour, so no reason not to have trouble getting this. Note it doesn't have to be your nemesis, just the nemesis of who you are assisting. Tolerable.
Quote:
Placebo Effect: Kill five enemies in a single life, while having your Ubercharge ready but undeployed
I'd imagine Kill Assists do not count, but it should still be easy if you're boosting. Just take turns getting it.

Quote:
Sawbones: Hit enemies with your bone saw ten times in a row without dieing or missing
To boost - hit enemy heavy while he is getting heals from enemy medic. Done.

Quote:
Intern: Accumulate seven thousand heal points in a single life
See 'Specialist'.

Quote:
Specialist: Accumulate ten thousand heal points in a single life
This would be hard and the cause of lots of frustration. You could boost this in about 20 minutes per person, though, I'd estimate.
Quote:
Chief of Staff: Accumulate ten million total health points
Before you say OMG 10 MILLION, SUX, think that if you're playing to get these, you're probably playing to get the Medic weapons, meaning you probably like playing the medic. Just chillax and boost this, or play as the Medic for fun. It will take time, but its not impossible.
Quote:
Hypocritical Oath: Kill an enemy spy that you have been healing
Boosting this would take all of 5 seconds. Heal, bonesaw, done. The spy would also get 'Master of Deception' if they didn't have it already, win/win!

Quote:
Medical Intervention: Save a falling teammate from dying on impact
Have a soldier rocket jump off of the radio tower in Dustbowl and ubercharge him before impact.

Quote:
Second Opinion: Ubercharge two teammates at once
OKAY. Now you may say that this is impossible, but by the name of this achievement, I would imagine all you need to do is Ubercharge another medic who is currently Ubercharging someone else, or do something else that would be introduced in the patch this content would be released in. Keep an open mind, people!

Quote:
Autopsy Report: Provide an enemy with a freeze cam shot of you taunting above their ragdoll
You know when you die, and the camera zooms up to who killed you and gives you stats and what not before you respawn? THAT is the freeze cam shot. It is not a screenshot, and to whoever confused that on the comments of the news post, shame on you. This is what its referring to.

Quote:
FYI I am a Medic: use a bone saw to kill five enemy spies who have been calling for Medic
Well, it's not on the same life. Easy. Boost it or get it legit, eventually, in a round full of spies. Also, best achievement name off this list.

Quote:
Family Practice: Ubercharge ten of your steam community friends
Another thing, whoever tries to call out this list about 'steam friends', and how it would be impossible for a 360, all I have to say is this.

~.WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE.~

That was an achievement which was steam friends for the PC, and xbox live friends for the 360. Possible. End of discussion on that achievement.

Quote:
House Call: Join a game that one of your friends is in and then deploy an Ubercharge on him
Absolutely possible on the 360 and one of the easiest on this list.

Quote:
Bedside Manner: Be healing a teammate as he achieves an achievement of his own
And, finally, you may say it's impossible, but I challenge you all the same - how would a game communicating information to the xbox live servers NOT know when somebody else got an achievement? Our gamercards online and in the console are updated near instantaneously, so the technology is not a limitation.

Zombie-que. Use flares to light 15 zombies on fire. Guide suggests in EP1, the dark parking garage while waiting for the elevator. Are there any more spots throughout the game to toss flares at zombies or is this the only spot? My first try I got 9 zombies. So I'm wondering if I can still get it at a later part of the game, or should I try better?

Edit: I found more flares and zombies right before the end of Urban Flight, which allowed me to complete the achievement.

I think i can only tolerate 99 achievements because the games are fun. i play a lot of boring games for achievements and even easy gamerscore is a pain if it makes me bored as shit. i love the different achievements in this game though and while some aren't that great most of them are pretty fun.

There are only 33 cameras that need to be destroyed, all the ones on the darker walls don't need to be destroyed.

Now I have a question, Two Points is on Half-Life 2, right? How far into the game is it?

EDIT:So here's my explanation as to why I need to know this if you don't care skip it.
Spoiler! (click here to reveal)
What I need to know, how many more Achievements will I automatically get between "What Cat?", which I just unlocked, and "Two Points"?

Has anyone had trouble with Keep off the Sand? Reloaded save the couple times antlions popped up, and I never felt the earth rumble without them coming up. Most of the time I used the two wooden pallet boards and just did one after the other. Got to the guard antlion and no cheevo.

Argh, I'm really angry. I was going for the 'Little Rocket Man' achievement and was approaching White Forest. Finally, I can drop this little ******* off and get my 30G. Next time I switch my 360 on, I get the disk unreadable error No achievement for me, lol. I've also lost a few other achievements that I could have easily gained.

Even though Camera Shy is an easy achievement, every time I go through an elevator my game messes up an I get stuck in the top portion of the elevator. I don't know what the heck is wrong with my game/console...

I just got the "Payback" achievement where you kill a hunter with its own flechettes. I think the guide should note that A) a steel barrel works better than a box since it won't break apart from multiple hits/explosions, and B) the flechettes vaporize the hunter the same way that an energy ball would but ONLY if you actually throw it at them. holding it next to them won't do it.

Hoyt PotatOwnachievement

If you don' have any saves on the ravenholm chapter I suggest doing this on Highway 17.
From the startig point, drive through the first tunnel,then you have to drive on te beach and pretty soon you'll find two houses on your right; one of them (the higher one, by the sea) has two enemies, one of which will throw granades a you.

I'm going for the Targetted Advertisement achievement, and I just realised that I could not go through ravenholm again to get the Hot PotatOwned.

Hope this helps, cheers

Does anyone know easy ways to get the achievements for Portal where you have to do all the challenges? They're so annoying and they are 3 of only 5 achievements I need to 100% the orange box.

Yeah, it is Half-Life 2. It's right before you go to Ravenholm, during the part where you're learning to use the gravity gun with DOG.

It's also a pretty annoying achievement. You may need to save and reload a few times to get it.
