Achievement Guide and Road Map

Overview:
+Estimated achievement difficulty: 3/10
+Offline: 5 (95)
+Online: 5 (155)
+Approximate amount of time to 250: 10-12 hours
+Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 2
+Number of missable achievements: None
+Do cheat codes disable achievements? No codes
+Does difficulty affect achievements? No
+Glitchy achievements? None
+Unobtainable achievements? None
+Extra equipment needed? No

Step 1: Story Playthroughs
Find a group of 1-3 other players with the DLC (both people can have second accounts if you can only get one other person) to do the story in 4-player co-op in either Standard or Arcade. Once done, complete it again in the other mode any way you'd like (can be solo). The story takes about three hours, most likely less the second time.

Step 2: Mop Up Kills
If you didn't get any of the unique kill achievements during your two story playthroughs, see their achievements below to mop up the remainder. There are conflicting reports of kills registering while playing in Arcade mode, so use Standard to be safe. This may simply be due to the use of mutators in Arcade. If you play plain Arcade (no mutators) the kills should still count.

Step 3: Online
Go online to play ten matches with Zeta characters, find a group to do the five-player Horde run and then hope for the best finding Kims to execute in normal matchmaking while playing as RAAM.

Conclusion:
Another fairly easy set of DLC achievements. The time and difficulty are extremely dependent on how lucky you are finding or setting up boosting methods to get your executions on Kim. Otherwise, not much to it.



Welcome To Zeta 25
Completed "RAAM's Shadow" in Standard Campaign.

See "Help From My Friends" for more info.

Some Friendly Competition 25
Completed "RAAM's Shadow" in Arcade Campaign.

See "Help From My Friends" for more info.

Help From My Friends 25
Completed "RAAM's Shadow" in 4 player co-op.

You'll need to complete the new story content at least twice. Once in 4-player co-op in either Standard or Arcade, then at least once more with any number of players in the opposite mode of your 4-player playthrough. Your second run can be done solo if you'd like, and both of them can be done on Casual to make it easier.

Finger of Doom 15
As RAAM, ripped 50 Gears to shreds with your Kryll.

You take control of RAAM early in Chapter 2. To use his Kyrll, simply pull + as if you were shooting down sights with a gun. You can hold down to prolong the attack and kill multiple enemies before you need to recharge. You'll use RAAM twice during the campaign, but will likely get this done the first time.

I'm Rubber, You're Glue 15
Used the Mauler shield to kill 10 Gears that had the temerity to fire upon you and your General.

To use the Mauler, you will need to be either Player 3 or Player 4 in a co-op game. You can boost this with one other person if they sign in a second account and you join them to become Player 3.

During Chapter 2 you can easily get all of these kills done; use the reticule while shielding yourself to "aim" the reflected bullets at the COG.



Death from Above 15
Showed 50 Locusts the meaning of sky-fire with HOD Command Center.

You will have the opportunity to use the HODCC two times during the campaign, once in Chapter 1 and again in Chapter 4. You'll likely only get around 25 kills from both, so you'll have to boost a few of these with the Chapter 4 section being the better of the two. Make sure if you're going to reload a checkpoint that you exit the overhead view for the kills to register first.

Unarmed and Dangerous 15
Ignored all Loader safety guidelines and killed 10 Locusts.

After eliminating the Seeders at City Hall in Chapter 4, head to the construction site to grab the Loader. Use to punch and you should be able to kill a handful of enemies in the area. You can also leave the last one alive (so you don't create a new checkpoint) and reload your checkpoint to knock out all ten kills quickly before moving on so you don't have to come back for this.


Note: This can also be unlocked using the Silverback. Also, make sure you do not have the Instagib Melee mutator on or the kills will not register.

Ghosts from the Past 15
Honored the memory of Zeta Squad in 10 matches of Versus.

Using any of the four new COG characters from this DLC pack (listed below), play any ten matches in normal online matchmaking. This does not have to be done consecutively or in any specific gametype, though it can not be done in private matches.
  • Lt. Minh Young Kim
  • Tai Kaliso
  • Michael Barrick
  • Alicia Valera
Foreshadowing 25
As RAAM, made sure Minh never forgets that day outside the House of Sovereigns.

Set your Locust character as RAAM so you can try to work on this whenever you find someone else playing as Kim (and if you're feeling generous, be Kim while COG to help others get it). Note that it requires an execution; go for a chainsaw if the other player is unaware of your presence, or use the lancer to gun someone down and move in close for an easy ground execution. This can not be done in private matches, so it is slightly up to luck that you get the proper character across from you to attempt this in normal matchmaking. You will need ten executions of Kim as RAAM in total.

There is one small trick that might work out to try and boost this with only one friend. Have your friend join a match and wait until his side is full of human players but the other side has at least one bot. Use your Guide Menu to "Join Session in Progress" and you should be put on the other team. From there, find a place to meet on the map to do the business.


Otherwise, you can get a group of five and join a match, but have the host of the party leave once the game loads up. The remaining four people will no longer be in a party and may be matched on different sides. Keep playing this way until everyone gets their kills. Be sure to help out your host after!

The final option to try this alone is to flood your internet with downloads or streaming video so that you will be placed into a match with all bots. You'll have to get lucky to be placed on Locust and have a Kim bot across from you, but after a few attempts it should work out.

Zeta Team, Go! 75
Defeated the first 10 waves of Horde with every member of Zeta in your party.

This can be done on any map or difficulty, so choose a map you're comfortable with and do Casual to make it easier. You will need at least three people for this (two people can use guest accounts), though finding two more to avoid that shouldn't be too hard using the Achievement Trading Thread. Each person will need to select a different character so you have all five of the below represented.
  • Lt. Minh Young Kim
  • Tai Kaliso
  • Michael Barrick
  • Alicia Valera
  • Jace Stratton

I'm basing this off the original descriptions:

Quote:
  • Welcome to Zeta - Complete "RAAM's Shadow" in Standard Campaign on any difficulty. (25 points)
  • Some Friendly Competition – Completed “RAAM’s Shadow” in Arcade on any difficulty. (25 points)
  • Help from my Friends – Completed “RAAM’s Shadow” in 4 player co-op in Arcade or Standard Mode. (25 points)
  • Finger of Doom – As RAAM, kill 50 gears using your Kryll. (15 points)
  • I’m Rubber, You’re Glue – As Mauler, kill 10 Gears by reflecting their bullets using your shield. (15 points)
  • Death from Above – Using the Hammer of Dawn Command Center, kill 50 Locust. (15 points)
  • Unarmed and Dangerous – Using the Loader, kill 10 Locust. (15 points)
  • Ghosts from the Past – Play 10 matches of Versus as a member of Zeta (Barrick, Tai, Minh, or Valera) (Standard or Casual). (15 points)
  • Foreshadowing – As RAAM, execute Minh 10 times in Versus MP (Standard or Casual). (25 points)
  • Zeta Team, Go! – Complete waves 1 – 10 of Horde with 5 players as Zeta (Barrick, Tai, Minh, Valera, and Jace). (75 points)
When they were posted to xbox.com, they had much more vague descriptions but I am assuming the requirements will still be the same.

Bleh, I won't speculate anymore.
I'll just wait for the season pass thing to be fixed.

Hate cheeves that force you to play online. Bullshit actually. Eh, it's just cheeves, no big deal... but it is annoying.

Can you do the 4 person co-op with 2 guys, each doing split screen? Assuming not, cause then you're not enjoying the ever precious online experience.

That's how I did my last few chapters of the campaign 4 player achievement, with 1 friend and we both used two controllers. Don't see why it wouldn't work here, but I can't say for sure as I'm still only downloading.

I like how this is already stickied and yet there is almost nothing helpful about it. The OP hasn't even played the DLC yet. If it were any other member posting, this wouldn't even have the chance of being stickied until fully complete.

Finger of Doom 15
As RAAM, ripped 50 Gears to shreds with your Kryll.

As soon as you got to chapter 2 you will begin for a little second as michael barrick, after that you will begin as raam, if you are raam you just zoom and push the RT button(like a weapon). repeat this 50 times on all the enemy's you will see and the achievement is yours.(can also be done later in the campaign)

I'm Rubber, You're Glue 15
Used the Mauler shield to kill 10 Gears that had the temerity to fire upon you and your General.

this one can also by done on the second chapter. you need somebody else to host the game and have a second person join before you do. you need to be the 3/4 person who joins the game.(1 person= raam 2 person= theron elite 3/4 person= mauler) you need to use your shield to get this one, you need the enemy shoot at you while you are using your shield and reflect the bullets back to them while you are aiming(you will also see a aim, aim it on the enemy to reflect the bullets back).

Death from Above 15
Showed 50 Locusts the meaning of sky-fire with HOD Command Center.

can be found in very beginning of the campaign(in the first chapter) after you have close the second grub hole alicia will say there are to many of them and michael while ask for some back-up after anya says the have to wait a little longer then michael while ask to use the hammer of dawn she will let you use it(video how to use later upload).
Also there is a second chance while you are playing chapter 4 you while get into a mansion and you must kill some locust inside after that there is a second command center on the second floor, use it and you will get even more kills with it.

Unarmed and Dangerous 15
Ignored all Loader safety guidelines and killed 10 Locusts.

for this one you thus need a silverback to get this one(I did it when I was playing whit a friend co-op i was the theron elite and I got it that way), but as the title says you need to kill at least 10 locust while playing as the zeta team, this can be don on chapter 4 almost at the end, you will see a loader standing be sure you got a checkpoint go in it and push the B butten to kill them remain this some time and you got it.

@Pants: Don't take this the wrong way, because I respect everything you do for this site, including all of your awesome guides.....however, don't you think it is a bit unfair that you guys keep auto-sticky-ing your guides, even when they aren't even remotely close to being finished? If we are playing on a level field, shouldn't you wait until everything is finished in case someone else wants to take a crack at it?

Like I said, I love the site and all of the work you guys do......I just think many people get disheartened to even attempt a guide when they keep seeing guides get auto-stickied by staff before they even had a chance to tackle one of their own.

There are some forums that have guides that are up to six months old (and yes, they are definitely complete)and don't have a sticky just because it is for a game that none of the mods seem to care about.

Sorry if that came across as a rant, it's just that I have seen this becoming a more frequent trend in the past few months.

Just to add to this,when you first take over as RAAM i don't know if anyone else thought the same as me but i thought you could only use the kryll for one shot at one person and then it has to re charge but once you press LT you keep hold of RT and aim towards the soldiers and it only stops once the charge run out.

As for complaints of me sticking my own guides before they're complete, they're probably justified but honestly it's not going to change. If you have a complaint about the quality of my guides, that's fine, but I think I've proven I can provide a good guide in the end, better than most. I'd rather people thought I abused my power and the site got the best guide possible than someone who doesn't know how to format it and can barely spell were throwing something together, ya know? Think I'm a dick if you wish.

On the other points Shaun made: I've stuck plenty of WIP guides in the past from others if the person was making plenty of updates and had a good skeleton on it in the beginning (such as what I have here). It's half-assed "I want to be first" guides that we don't pay any mind to. And if there's a guide out there that should be stuck and hasn't, it's just because we haven't seen it or been notified - feel free to message any mod and they'll take care of it.

Anyway, further complaints about my power mongering can be registered here or here. Keep this thread for discussion on the achievements from here out please. I'll update everything later tonight. I work for UPS so we're rather busy right now and I can't spend as much time as usual on the site during my shift today.

For the RAAM achievement you should get it the first time you play as him if you're doing singleplayer. If not, you get to play him a second time.

With the HOD achievement you get to use it twice, the first time you use it you should get less than ten kills. The second time they have a big stream of drones waltzing on through, THESE DRONES AREN'T INFINITE! Get as many as you can that are grouped together and then take care of the seeders, you should get around 25 kills in total from using it both times. Second place being the obvious spot to grind with for this.

Now the Loader you can only get two to four kills with but killing the last drone will create a new checkpoint where all the enemies are dead. Hopefully you can get this in the normal campaign like people are reporting.

Ignored all Loader safety guidelines and killed 10 Locusts.

You get to use the loader in the construction site just after eliminating the Seeders at City Hall. You can get at the most 2 or 3 kills at a time. The trick to farm this achievement is not to kill the last drone in the area where the loader is as it will checkpoint. Just reload checkpoint and repeat till the achievement pops up.

Important thing to note is that the kills to unlock this achievement counted ONLY ON STANDARD MODE AND NOT ARCADE MODE.. I dont know why that is but thats the truth.

Mine unlocked in arcade for me. Only one I didn't get in arcade was finger of doom.

I can confirm that it doesn't unlock in arcade. I killed about 20 locust and when I checked in the main menu the counter was still 0.
Standard campaign was my way to go.
When you get to the construction side ignore the locust and just rush to the loader. Kill 5+ locust reload and two runs should give you the achievement.

When you get to the construction side ignore the locust and just rush to the loader. Kill 5+ locust reload and two runs should give you the achievement.
I unlocked the achievement in arcade.. Did you have mutators on? I think that mutators somehow prevent you from getting the loader achievement.

The only "trick" I know of is to have a friend join an online match where his team is full, but the other team has bots, then join him afterward (so you're not in a party together) and you'll be placed on the other team. Be in party chat and find a place to meet up and kill each other.

As for complaints of me sticking my own guides before they're complete, they're probably justified but honestly it's not going to change. If you have a complaint about the quality of my guides, that's fine, but I think I've proven I can provide a good guide in the end, better than most. I'd rather people thought I abused my power and the site got the best guide possible than someone who doesn't know how to format it and can barely spell were throwing something together, ya know? Think I'm a dick if you wish.

On the other points Shaun made: I've stuck plenty of WIP guides in the past from others if the person was making plenty of updates and had a good skeleton on it in the beginning (such as what I have here). It's half-assed "I want to be first" guides that we don't pay any mind to. And if there's a guide out there that should be stuck and hasn't, it's just because we haven't seen it or been notified - feel free to message any mod and they'll take care of it.

Anyway, further complaints about my power mongering can be registered here or here. Keep this thread for discussion on the achievements from here out please. I'll update everything later tonight. I work for UPS so we're rather busy right now and I can't spend as much time as usual on the site during my shift today.
This philosophy deviates a little from what we all believe to be fair. However, I concur with you, Pants. There are a lot of people on this site that neglect good grammar, spelling, and punctuation. For Gears, specifically, I think it's good for the continuity of guide authorship as well. My advice to the other users here that disagree with this: let's be honest, popular games like this with large amounts of attention deserve a good, professionally written guide. I think there are more qualified writers on this site other than Pants but again, he's already written the other guides so for uniformity purposes he is the most qualified to write this.

With all of this said, if I'm not mistaken, anyone can still write a guide, right? There's no promise that it will become the official guide nor get stickied but it provides the opportunity for others. In the end only the quality guides make it through the filtering process.

I think it's five? People might try to get two groups of five going (or a few people with second accounts signed in) and try to join matchmaking at the time and see if they get lucky and get matched together.

Either "trick" method is still a bit of a crap shoot though.

This may be a stupid question but has anyone actually tried doing the forshadowing achievement in private mode? I know it says casual or rank but you never know.

EDIT: Tried to do it in private and was not able to get it, i did it just to confirm it myself.
