Awards Showcase Road Map - Bronze
Total Awards: 1 (more» ...)
Exclamation Achievement Guide/ Road Map

Overview:
Estimated achievement difficulty: 2/10
Offline- 10 (180)
Online- 2 (20)
Approximate amount of time to 200- <1 hour
Minimum number of playthroughs needed- 1
Number of missable achievements- None
Do cheat codes disable achievements?- No cheats
Does difficulty affect achievements?- No
Glitchy achievements- None
Unobtainable achievements?- No

Introduction:
Harms Way is a free XBL arcade game combining racing and shooting it is extremely easy and actually quite fun, not to mention it is one of the easiest games to complete yet. You also get gamerpics for winning races as a turret and as the driver!

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
This game is easiest to complete with one single player game, followed by heading online with a partner for the remainder of the achievements.

Single Player- Start up the game in single player. Play as the driver and go for the win, you'll most likley get wrecked so you'll get that achievement too. Next, play as the Turret gunner. The AI driver should gather your upgrades, so you just have to take out the other drivers and turrets.

Online: Host a match (you dont even need to finish it) and then join a match for the two online achievements. Also, boost with a partner for any other turret/driver achievements you missed.

Credits: Watch them. Simple

Conclusion:
A very easy, fun, and free 200 . Not much else to say here. Thanks Doritos for another free game!


Turret Downgrade10 Activate a turret downgrade powerup
You need to be in a multiplayer game for this. As the driver just grab the power-up with the turret and red arrow to downgrade your opponents turret.
Turret takeover30 Shoot and takeover an enemy turret
This one has to be done in multiplayer. Play as the turret and take out another teams turret. Then take it over when prompted with .
Affiliation10 Join a multiplayer game for the first time
Head to the Achivement trading thread here and join a game to get the achievement.
Justin Carpenter Achievement10 Just look at credits
Go to Help & Options and click credits. You'll get it as soon as they start.
First Blood20 Wreck an opponent as a shooter
Mines, missles, whatever: Just wreck a driver as a turret.
Entertainer10 Host a multiplayer game for the first time
Go to Multiplayer, then create match. Once the lobby is started, you'll get the achievement.
Missile-Fest10 Get the missile launcher for the first time
This one is dependent on the driver. Once he collects the missle power up you will get the achievement.
Alternativley, you can actually shoot the power-up icons as the turret gunner.
Mine-Fest10 Deploy mines for the first time
Done as the turret, once your driver collects mines, you will get a HUD notice. Switch weapons with and fire them as usual with .
Flat Tire20 Hit the tires of a driver
Done as the turret, easiest with the Sniper Rifle (Starting Weapon), or the machine gun. Just zoom in on a tire and shoot it.
Alternatively, just play multiplayer and shoot your boosting partners tires'.
Get Wrecked10 Wreck your vehicle
Either crash until you explode or hope a turret gets ya. Simple.
First Win30 Win a game in Single Player
Can be done as the Driver, or as the Turret if the AI driver wins. Simply ensure your team comes in 1st.
Alternativley, just do a solo game and finish it at your own lesiure.
One shot kill30 Hit the windshield of a driver
This one is all about luck/skill. You need to shoot a driver in the windshield to get the one hit kill. I'd reccomend the Sniper. Just select a turret directly in front of a driver and hit it dead centre.
Alternatively, just play a multiplayer game with a partner and shoot him the windshield when he's sitting still.

these are the easiest achievements i've come across. the only one i can't get is the affiliation one cos it can't find a match -.-
but yeah, it's ridiculous how easy this is. also it's free! should not be a 2/10 but a 1/10 or even a 0.. it takes no more than 15 minutes (except if you can't find a game like me =[)

im confused on how u get the mine and missile achievements. i can't find those power-up and they aren't listed in the power up section of the menu. i've played over 4 races and 2 turret games and am still missing these achievements.

Once the driver collects mines, switch weapons as the gunner with . Fire them as usual with

what does this mean. how do u switch from the driver to the gunner? this game blows and i just want to get it over with.

you need to play a single player game as the shooter. When your driver runs through a turret upgrade, the game will announce your turret was upgraded..as the shooter press x and your gun will upgrade.

The way the OP worded that was funny, it took me a minute to figure that out.

what to u mean by "your" driver? also I've played a few more games as the turret and I've pressed every 10 or so seconds and i still cant change weapons. none of the drives seem to be picking up the missiles or mines.

The matches are set up as teams (1 driver in a vehicle and 1 shooter) Start a single player match as the shooter. When your teammate drives thorugh a a couple of turret upgrades the game will announce that you can upgrade your turret, thats when you press x. If you still are having trouble start a local match with a second controller and have the 2nd controller be the driver, then drive around looking for turret upgrades. When it says your turret was upgrades swicth to your main account (the shooter) and press x.

thanks. i just did all of what u said in local coop. now i just need the "join a multiplayer game" achievement which I'll get with a friend later tonight.

its an easy 200G but I found it confusing since there aren't any tutorials. the only advice u get is in the loading menu and they are too short to really learn anything.

I had the same issue. But when I played as the gunner. I figured out that as the gunner you can shoot the power ups to. Just find a green power up and shoot it with the sniper. It works for the driver to if he is close enough. Just shoot the shield power up when he is close and he should get it. We played split screen and my mate could not see to well lol. But as long as I shoot the power ups as the gunner it worked to. Did not work for the downgrade tho for some reason. That has to be done by the driver.

I can confirm the multiplayer achievements (except join a game) can be done in Local Split-Screen against the bots.

You can also upgrade your turret by being the shooter, and actually 'shooting' the upgrade to collect it. Find a turret with a clear view of the upgrade icon, use the sniper rifle, zoom in, bang...

Wait for it to respawn twice more, and bingo, fully upgraded, then release the hounds for two more cheevos.
