So I was doing it right, to what the achievement description said, that Maka has written down. So that is wrong and needs changing. I was shooting the soldier, as told but it's the snipers I need to hit. So when you get a chance Maka, you'll need to change that one!

Also, add the AA12 to the shotgun list for weapon kills. Though it shoots like a machine/assault gun it's actually a shotty.

lo Yea we had that debate earlier. Technically and in real life, the AA-12 is a real shotgun, but we had numerous people confirm that while getting AA-12 kills, there heavy weapon counter went up. The only time you get the AA-12 is in chapter 14 so I already had both those achievements but others have confirmed this. Might want to double check just to be 100%. But your are right, the AA-12 is a shotgun

I just got the AA12 in Chapter 10. Well I had all the gun kills up to that point, so I can't test it out.

Also, you'll want to change the descriptions for Unfriendly Fire & Friendly Fire. I'm not sure if it saves if you do Unfriendly Fire first, but I just shot Riggs, go the achievement straight away and I've literally restarted the checkpoint and tried the other decision and got Friendly Fire.

There's no save point. So you can do both right away!

Yea I had written the decision achievements in another thread here:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=376350

and I had put all the correct decisions in there. Those ones should be the one in the guide.

Thanks for pointing everything out! Maka should be on some time today to make changes

I think everything is stacking up against the AA12 being a heavy/assault weapon.

Known in RL as a shotgun, plus the cross-hair is a full rounded circle shape, which is the same as the other shotguns in the game and not the heavy/assault stuff.

Yea thats what I said in earlier posts but people say it counts as heavy. I guess I could test it in a few on another gt

I can 100% confirm the AA12 is a heavy weapon as I got my achievement after 5 kills with it.

Thank you for changing the road map and the difficulty. I think 5/10 is realistic for a completionist and it doesn't mislead anyone. The 3/5 was misleading because similar games were rated that low like Darkness 2 which was really easy even on hard.

The guide looks good. I'll be happy to use it to pick up some missing achievements when I go through on Fubar. Hopefully that isn't too hard. So far Suicide Mission (or whatever it's called) isn't too bad.

Yep, I'm getting progress towards Heavy Weapons with the AA12 too. Weird...

[EDIT]: Just finished my first playthrough. Did it on Suicide Mission and it only took me 4 hours. Time played is actually exactly 4:00:00. I'm guessing you could actually get 1000G in just over 8 hours (depending on how hard FUBAR is compared to Suicide Mission).

I think the Airspace Control achievement is done on chapter 11, not 10.

there is an earlier place to get close combat carnage, i cant remember exactly what mission it is on but when you save that guy who is part of the 33rd he rappals down the hole and then when you follow him 4 people will ambush you, but is you carry on down the path you will get the drop on them and be able to take them out no problem, just make sure to get a shotgun earlier in the game, and just to help find where it is they are the first us army people that you kill.

Mine was around four hours too but it definitely took me longer than that so I assume the time doesn't include cutscenes or reloaded checkpoints.

you can get Preventive Diplomacy easily in the epilogue, as soon as you kill the guy talking to you, theres 3 soldiers to the left, the one in the middle will throw a grenade, you can kill him easily.


also
Friendly Fire
&

Unfriendly Fire

are at the beginning of Chapter 11, you can by-pass Chapter 10-2 all together which is nothing but the grenade launching part on the truck.

There are a few mix-ups where you refer to things as being in Chapter 10 but they are actually in chapter 11. Friendly Fire and Unfriendly Fire are right at the beginning of Chapter 11 (easy to Chapter Select for the alternative choice). Likewise the spot you describe for doing Situational Awareness is in Chapter 11.

For Man of Action/ Man of Patience you can make a copy of your save on a memory card / cloud save as an easier choice than chapter select. Not really needed if you plan to do two playthroughs, but for 50G I doubt most people will bother.

It's the only thing standing in the way of 100% completion. If there was some hard or time consuming achievement like get to rank 45 in multiplayer, maybe people wouldn't bother, but I think lots of people will go for a second playthrough with that easy 100% at the end of it. Plus it's a short game

Just unlocked the 'heavy arms' achievement but i got it after a melee so dunno if that means that melee's count which would be very strange. Dunno if its because it was a melee on a knife expert but oh well an achievements an achievement

More like 7/10 Seriously...Call of duty is so much easier on veteran than this on fubar....
1/50= 7/10
49/50= 2/10 Lol

Just so people know, I got the "preventative diplomacy" (kill enemy as they are throwing a grenade) on the epilogue part. I blew the guy away on the right and then the left. So not entirely certain which one has the 'nade. But the checkpoint is right there. So easy enough to reload if it doesn't pop.

@Stook85
Ohm your post is pointless.Stook85
You havent even played the difficult fubar and you are going to tell us that this game is a 3/10?
Come on ...Just play fubar first then you will change your mind.
Its a 6 or 7/10 for sure.
Just to let everyone knows

I apologize for the guide being outdated. Ive sent Maka messages since he is the only one that can edit the post, so he should be on at some point to fix some things, since hes busy with work and what not. If I could do it myself I would. For the decision achievements, follow this one for now:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=376350

Again, I apologize for the delay in update. This ones out of my hands

Thumbs up

Nice guide man-just thought i'd see if someone had done one as i was missing 1 intel and thanks to u i got it.
I loved this campaign by the way-it really puts CoD and Battlefield single player efforts to shame really-the MP on this is average but i buy games mainly for the story/campaign,anything else is a bonus and for a modern millitary shooter this is very well made.
Once again thanks for the guide.
