All Of The Above/Grind Guide

MAX PAYNE 3 GRINDS GUIDE

GOLDEN WEAPONS: These are collected throughout the game.


Each Grind has four stages: Bronze-Silver-Gold-Platinum :These colors will represent the total for each of the in game Grinds. Some of these are very self-explanatory but some can be a little tricky to understand. I've done my best here to give good examples and even a few tips and tricks for farming. If you have any questions, comments, or tips that would be useful per Grind, please post or PM me and I'll try and post as quickly as I can. Lastly, these numbers were pulled from the BradyGames guide, Rockstar's Social Club, and my own progress. Not all of these sources match up but I've tried my best to make sure they are as accurate as possible. If there are any discrepancies, please let me know and I'll adjust accordingly.

BLOODBATH: Kill 200-500-1000-2500 enemies.

HEAD MASTER: Get 100-250-500-1000 headshots.

ARMS DEALER: Shoot 25-50-100-250 enemies in the arm or hand.

LEG PAYNE: Shoot 25-50-100-250 enemies in the leg or foot.

BELOW THE BELT: Shoot 25-50-100-250 enemies in the groin. (Shoot just below the waist to ensure you're getting these kills to count. They are also two/three shot kills so you'll know when you get them.)

DODGE BRAWL: Kill 100-250-500-1000 enemies during ShootDodge. (By clicking , you enter ShootDodge. Any enemy you kill during this time will count towards your total. Chapter VIII:Checkpoint 5 is a good place to load up. This also helps with shoot dodge kills and if you get the chance to go prone or lie on your back, you can rack up a few this way as well.)

ARTFUL DODGER: ShootDodge for 5-10-20-50 minutes total. (This is all the time you spend in the air using ShootDodge. It will take some time but shouldn't be an issue over time.)

TAKE YOUR TIME: Kill 100-250-500-1000 enemies during Bullet Time. (This is any time you use ShootDodge or click to use Bullet Time.

BULLET RIVER: Shoot 1000-2000-10,000-25,000 rounds. (Very easy to get over time. No sense in worrying about it.)

TAKE A LOAD OFF: Shoot 25-50-100-250 enemies while prone. (Any time Max is on the ground and you kill an enemy, this will count.)

SLOW DIVE: Preform a(n) 5-6-7-8 second ShootDodge. (You must stay in the air for a total of 8 seconds to get this one done. Where I found the best was in Chapter III, once at the top of the high bleachers, you can dive down with a good running start and get 8 seconds no problem.)

CAM LOVER: Watch 100-250-500-750 bullet cams. (You must see the bullet all the way through to your target. You can slow it down by holding and can even continue to fire rounds if you'd like.)

WRECKAGE: Blow up 25-50-100-200 vehicles. (Almost all vehicles are destructible. With enough bullets or explosives, they will explode counting towards your total. Loading up Chapter VIX:Checkpoint 12 is a good place to start. Blow up every vehicle, this will also count towards some explosive kills and Fall Man kills. Don't destroy the armored truck at the end and you can reload the checkpoint as much as you please.)

DOUBLE DAMAGE: Kill 150-300-750-1000 enemies while dual wielding.

BLOW OUT: Kill 25-50-100-250 enemies with explosions. (This is any kind of explosive, i.e. grenade launchers, RPGs, fuel tanks.)

Continued

GUESSWORK: Kill 25-50-100-250 enemies with blind fire. (Must be in cover but must not aim. Just blindly fire but take your time and wait because most enemies will rush you after some time. Chapter X:Checkpoint 11 where you are inside the bus is a great spot. You have unlimited ammo and close to 20 enemies to kill.)

THE TURTLE: Kill 100-250-500-1000 enemies from cover. (Must be in cover while you shoot for this to count. Once in cover, use to aim and take fire.)

BACK FROM THE DEAD: Win 25-50-100-250 Last Man Standings. (When you're shot down but have painkillers on you, you have the option to shoot the person who shot you. You may not always get a clear shot. Keep on eye on your aim indicator to turn red. Once you get back up, that counts as one. Loading up Chapter VIII:Checkpoint 5 again on easy, you start out with 5 Painkillers. Just let the take turns downing you and kill the guy you shot you. Be sure your aim indicator is red once its on the enemy responsible. You should be able to get five in before you have to reload the checkpoint.)

FIRE WORKS:Shoot 25-50-100-250 explosives out of the air. (Chapter VIX:Checkpoint 10, Becker shoots grenades at you which you can shoot out of the air. If you can, ShootDodge to your left after taking out the first wave of enemies and lay a little bit behind the first jeep that pulls in. If done right, you can lay here for a number of minutes unbothered to shoot Becker's grenades.)

SCRAPPER: Melee 25-50-75-150 enemies. (An easy way to farm this is load up Chapter I:Checkpoint 2 on easy. There are five enemies that are easy to run up to and melee. Just rinse and repeat.)

PHARMACIST: Use 50-100-250-500 painkillers.

FALL GUYS: Cause 25-50-100-250 enemies to topple over railings. (This counts towards anytime someone falls over something when they are killed. Even in the final chase scene where you grenade launch the jeeps. A decent spot to load up is Chapter X:Checkpoint 7. You will want to shoot the catwalk they are standing on.)

KEEP IT SIMPLE: Kill 50-100-250-1000 enemies with hand guns.

SHOTGUN DUES: Kill 50-100-250-1000 enemies with shotguns.

RAPID FIRE: Kill 50-100-250-1000 enemies with sub-machine guns.

IF IT AIN'T BROKE: Kill 50-100-250-1000 enemies with rifles.

EAGLE EYE: Kill 25-50-75-100 enemies with sniper rifles. (There are two sections where you use sniper rifles. Once in Chapter III and the other in XII:Checkpoint 9. Both areas can be loaded up from checkpoints.)

THE LOUNGER: Kill 25-50-100-250 enemies while lying on your back. (Preforming ShootDodge, you will land in a prone position. You MUST be on your back when killing an enemy for this to count towards a kill.)

for guess work (blindfire kills) if you use LT to pop out of cover, and get the enemy in your crosshair, that it seems to be where you will blindfire. its less acurate than aiming so you'll need lots of ammo.

Do melees not count towards the 100 melee kills achievement? Am I not supposed to be firing my gun after I whack them?

I smack 'em twice then it prompts me to pull the trigger. Am I doing something wrong?

So I shouldn't shoot then after the smacks? How do they die then?

Edit: Got it. I shot a couple guys in the leg so they fell down, then walked up & stomped them. Definitely didn't do it 100 times though.

You're all good. Just as long as you're prompting the melee animation and killing them at the end, you'll add kills towards the grind. It's a little goofy. I got stuck with the same one but have since unlocked it and the achievement so you're on the right track. You go ahead and pull that trigger mister.

Great guide. It's really helping me. Does anyone know any good place to grind out the 1000 shotgun kills?

I'm very happy to say that the guide is mistaken about the shotgun kills grind. You only need 500 not 1000. I was grinding this out earlier and got it by surprise. I'm really glad this was the case.

Is this sill getting updated, LOCATIONS, BEST SPOTS...cause you started out so great!?

I still need DOUBLE DAMAGE (my last one) and doing it in Chapter 8 - Checkpoint 5 but it's quite boring. Oh well a 600 more to go.

Oh and yeah it's 8 kills in 10 seconds.

Hello everyone !
I found a easy way to make Bullet Cams with in a checkpoint that you can reload, also you can do other kind of kills aswell.
I'm from the PS3 trophies but since I don't care about consoles war, I respect every console, I came here to share with all of you !

The first advice is, update your game and keep it connected to the internet, I don't know how or why, but when I went offline(even after the update), the needs of the grinds have changed, but when I was online they all were reduced(only 500 shotgun kills to platinum, 750 bullet cams to platinum), so here goes the advice and pay attention to those number once you can do things that weren't actually necessary to do.
I was looking for some way to farm those, especially the Cam Kills, once they usually only appear in the ending of a shootout sequency where you actually can't reload the checkpoint, so luckly I found a way to do it !
It works great with double pistols, shotgun, shootdodge and maybe if you wanna try the prone and lying in your back.
I've used just for shotgun, double damage and bullet cam, here's how:

STEP 1 : mode: easy,aim: soft lock(or do how you want, that doesn't really matter, just make things easier), CHAPTER 1, CHECKPOINT 4.

STEP 2 : Kills the guys in this level first level, THIS IS NOT WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO FARM, and get their weapons, you can get another pistol to make the double damage grind, and the shotgun, I suggest you get both.

STEP 3 : BEFORE you go to the next area, EQUIP the weapon you wanna farm, as it will save you some time about selecting it.
BUT, the shotgun won't be equipped, you only will carry it to the next area, now about the DOUBLE PISTOLS, you WILL be with both if you select them before entering!

STEP 4 : Kill all the guys, there are 4 guys, where the last one will be a bullet cam, ALSO, the guy behind the gate can be killed aswell, WITHOUT PRESSING THE BUTTON.

STEP 5 : Don't press the button, or it will probably get you to the next checkpoint, that's the trick!
Just reload checkpoint and there you go, you can kill all of them again, getting a fast bullet cam(once you're closer the guy that you kill) and you can do it again again and again!

It had to be detailed so no mistakes will happen, it's not hard, it's pretty easy actually, I just wanted to be sure everyone understand how it goes.

100% tested and works great(I've tested in the bullet cams, shotgun and double damage, I have the "All of the above" trophy, all grinds completed).
Good luck to all of you!

Great guide, but I found a slight error.
The fireworks grind last tier is 200 not 250... I just completed it using your guide
Also, it's much faster if you keep reloading the checkpoint after shooting Becker's first grenade instead of fighting the enemies and waiting for him to shoot more grenades.

Great guide, but I need some help with the blow out grind.
Do you know of a checkpoint where there's a bunch of guys near a gas canister?
I've been trying chapter 13 checkpoint 5 where you use the LAW to take out the armored vehicle. I grab the grenade launcher and shoot the guys coming through the gate, but for some strange reason they won't die.... I think it's a glitch or something. This started happening after I unlocked the golden grenade launcher... anyone else experiencing this?

The Lounger Grind

A great place to do this is in Chapter 1, Checkpoint 2. Two groups of bad guys net you five easy kills. The first group run forward a bit and then Shootdodge backwards. When you are flat on your back plug the three guys in front. Then repeat the move in the next room with two thugs. Run forward a bit and Shootdodge back. Wait for them to come to you. Just reload the checkpoint and repeat as many times as necessary. Also a good idea to do this on EASY with HARD LOCK turned on You can even use this technique to get five kills while prone while Shootdodging forward

I found a place but you need to keep reloading the checkpoint the good part is the fight is easy and it happens right after you pick up a shotgun just as you leave Bronco's quarters in Chapter 1. Load up Checkpoint 3 so you can get the shotgun. Then after the first battle in the underground parking lot you can reload the checkpoint and still have the shotty. This fight only nets you four kills but if you keep reloading the checkpoint it goes rather quickly.
