but then i realized, the glitch won't be triggered had i not bought swat smg. i bought 400++ bullets for it, and the other ammo had the same number too, including rockets. that made me finish the dockside missions of gabriel thomas. too bad i'm almost out of rockets too. the ordinary informants are giving me dockside missions so i have to buy a cheetah rifle to do them.
Yeah I am not bothering with challenges anymore that is for sure! I am level 18 now and money is nearly limitless right now unless you feel the need to purchase all the guns. I get 4-8k per mission (from Shady Wessler) and cannot even spend that much. Already have the best sniper and assault rifle. Shotguns and handguns seem useless considering how far away most enemies are.

Also, I purchased the 9,000 dollar armor. I think it is one time use only, which doesnt make any sense it only resists 30 damage. Why would you buy that? 20 medkits costs buy 2,500 and can restore 400 health.

Game has not been letting me play online lately at all...which I only care for because I want those credits from friends. Since the Addicted achievements is glitched anyway!

have you unlocked the loaded achievement? can you verify if the tranquilizer handgun must be purchased too?

as for the armor, i learned that lesson early too. too expensive for a one time use.

i have loaded, and from what ive read on true achievements the handgun tranq darts are required, i bought the handgun tranq before my task force rifle so i didnt know if it was required or not.

Yes it appears the tranquilizer hand gun is required...as I have all the other ammo types and it isn't unlocked yet. Lame...especially.since I can't connect online to get the coop challenges..meaning I can never really earn any credits...

daily bonus still pops up if you start the game in airplane mode then turn it off and go back and play, on day 5 its random and can give you game credits so not all hope is lost... or just hope they patch it soon

I am not touching this game until a patch is made. I am definitely not going to level 40 when I have to put my phone in airplane mode everytime. That is too much of a hassle. And in that case, I will not be getting any credits to unlock all ammo types either. And dont even get me started on the glitched "Addicted" achievement...

EDIT (8/3/12): I finally unlocked the Unrivaled achievement and have updated the guide with some tips. It only took a few tries once you find a good map to do it on and a compatible contract.

EDIT (8/4/12): Well today I earned 10 credits as my Day 5 chance award.

you are all lucky to be getting credits. i am only getting cash. i am tempted to reinstall the game since i can't play the game online and receive credits by completing the daily missions. but i am hesitating as i am already in level 21 and want to go and finish the level 40 achievement first.

how about you, what level are you already?

So you can confirm you did not have to get the kills in the first 15 seconds of the mission? Did you use any Reactix? I was able to clear out all the enemies in the first 10 seconds but I used a ton of Reactix and did not get the achievement.

Yeah I only got credits 1 time, the other three I only got cash. I wouldnt reinstall if you are already Level 21, but that is up to you. That is like 15 hours of gameplay you would be wasting. I am Level 20...I basically stopped playing as soon as I realized some of the other achievements are unattainable (Addicted). I do continue to keep racking up my daily bonus with hopes that I will get enough credits to unlock the handgun. Other than that, I am not wasting time going to Level 40 on a game that is impossible to complete anyway

Yes, I can confirm that you do not need to get the kills in the first 15 seconds of the contract. I did not use any Reactix, and since I was not doing it on an ambush mission, I just used the in-game clock to time my attempt. Did it in 13 or 14 seconds. I provided a good level (top left of monument square) to attempt this on in the guide. Just fire a random shot then wait 1 minute. Then survey the area and count all the guys and plan your shots. They tend to cluster on each side of the street near the explosives. Use those and then pick off any stragglers quickly.

Thanks for the advice. I finally got the achievement. I think the level you had in mind was the bottom of the two on the left of Monument Square. The one on the top has a few more spawn points. It will have to be a mission where you kill the boss first so he doesn't run away. Once you kill the boss and blow the two explosives, there will be ~5 guys that you have to finish off. Clear out one side before you move on to the next.

- About Deep Sleepachievement. It opens for me after 128. but I suppose 125 is necessary amount (as was written by Arsenic 17) because when mission was started I had 122 and achievement pop up after mission was ended.

Thanks for the XP amount. How did you get to 39 so fast? Did you spend money? Just wondering so I could fix the real world time to complete the game.

Also, what kind of XP are you getting per mission now on average? How many contracts did you complete? I am just looking to add to the guide.

It's not that bad. I didn't spend any money. It took me about a day and a half per level. Every time you go up a level, you get more energy so you can complete more missions, plus the XP for the contracts go up about 100 each time. Hans Grossberg and Crispin Sandlight contracts gave up to 3900 XP towards the end and Burpie McGhee and Sammy Turtle gave up to 2300. The others gave up to 1500. I don't know about the people where you have to pay 5 credits for because I wasn't lucky enough to win any credits from the daily bonus. I spent my initial credits on Dimitri Pushkin and he only gives out a contract every two days or so. Another thing I thought helped out is using rockets whenever possible. I was getting about 600 bonus XP as opposed to 200 using the Anti-Material Rifle. The game glitched and gave me 20k ammo for all weapon types . The total amount of contracts I completed is 1665.

hahaha! it also glitched on me and i had around 400++ of each ammo. it also takes me a day to day and a half to level up. i am now at level 37. and i agree with the rockets, they indeed provide lots of bonus. but since i have none anymore, i try to do headshots as they give out twice xp. i also try to kill as early as i can, given that i get x3 multiplier on the first 5 seconds and x2 on the next 10 seconds.

as for the contracts, you are right. these are the multipliers for the maximum possible value that i noticed along with their cool down time:

crispin sandlight (24:00) - level x 50
antonio lamancha (2:00) - level x 40
hans grossberg (1:00) - level x 100
burphie mcghee (0:45) - level x 50
sammy turtle (0:20) - level x 60
parker (0:10) - level x 80 *accidentally unlocked
lorenzo mazzalla (0:07) - level x 20
john smith (0:05) - level x 10

i rarely do the last two at they give out the least amount of xp. i only do if i have excess energy after leveling up and having a full bar.

i just noticed that dimitri pushkin no longer shows on my map. so the total number of informants on my map is 9. that means i would probably need to reinstall the game for the 10 informant achievement. just wanted to let everyone know if you're approaching 40 and don't have that achievement yet.

confirming that the total xp needed for level 40 is 2566916. it is the maximum xp you can get, playing after you achieved level 40 won't earn you anymore xp.

contracts completed, 1466. the last few levels were really hard, almost everyone were carrying heavy guns. i am now thinking if i should reset the game and chase the loaded achievement.

Well if you got all other achievements, save Addicted as well, you got nothing to lose. Delete away! Actually why are you deleting. All you need is to get some credits? Deleting would make a hassle!

the only achievements i am missing are loaded and addicted. i reinstalled the game hoping that it can be played when i am connected to the internet. indeed, i was able to play but it says no xbox live friends.

this evening, it prompted me that my data is not in sync with their server. the server says i am level 30 (even though i just finished the game earlier) and gave me the option if i want to sync to their server. after attempting to sync, it crashed. opening it without internet, it did not sync to level 30. now i can't play it again when i am connected to the internet. wonder what i should do next.

anyhow, for the level 10 achievement, you can actually do it in one day.

Glimmer of hope for those still playing...

I've been playing almost every day for the past month or so. Some days the game works, some days it doesn't. Since the issues with the game are server-side, they're pretty much out of our hands as users.

However, a miracle happened this morning. I started the game up to see the 10 gold that I earned over a month ago on a 5-day bonus magically increased to 140 gold overnight. This may just be a glitch in my favor, or it may mean Glu's server(s) have been hording my rewards for playing 5(7?) days in a row and challenges, and they finally shook loose. Either way, it gives me enough encouragement to keep playing.

For those in need of some possibly useless advice, here are some tricks I've been trying:

1. Use 'CO-OP' to sync with the server
When you start the game (and the game actually starts), click 'OK' if any prompt screens (challenges, daily rewards, etc.) pop up. Once you're looking at the game map, click 'CO-OP' and wait for it to fully load. This theoretically ensures your game is in sync with Glu's broken servers, and hopefully tracks your progress & rewards. You'll know you're in sync if you select the ASSASSIN'S GUILD tab and you see all of your friends' actual Xbox LIVE gamerpics. If your friends' gamerpics are one of the default Contract Killer "calling card" avatar pics (gun, raven, wolf, etc.) your game is not in sync. If that's the case, go back to map & try again. When I'm done playing, I click 'CO-OP' and sync my game one last time before exiting, just as a precaution my progress is saved server-side.

2. Refresh your Xbox LIVE friendlist
A month or so ago I noticed that when I add a new Contract Killer friend to my Xbox LIVE friendlist, that friend regularly shows up in my challenge, gift, and news feeds. I assumed it was because the new friend was just playing the game more than my other friends, but when I looked up my friends' game history on xbox.com, that was not the case. So I tried an experiment and removed all of my contract killer friends from my Xbox LIVE friendlist, started (and synced) Contract Killer confirming my ASSASSIN'S GUILD tab is empty. Then I exit the game, re-add my friends via xbox.com, and restart (and sync) Contract Killer and confirm my friends have returned to my ASSASSIN'S GUILD tab. For the following few days/week I receive far more gifts, and challenges unlock much faster. Now this may just be a coincidence, but I've done this twice over the past month and noticed a big improvement both times.

3. Play during morning, noon and night
I have noticed that I am only able to send gifts to certain friends at various parts of the day. I assume this is either an issue with time zones, or perhaps Glu's servers update different users at different times of day. Either way, I try to sync my game and send gifts & challenge updates to friends in the morning, afternoon, and evening.

Keep in mind the game is a hot mess, and you may not see any improvements by following my advice. All I know is what I've experienced, and the tricks I've been using have seemed to improve my game experience and may improve yours if you stick with it for a month+.

This will get your gamerscore reset. I suggest not doing it. Yes it is not hacking Xbox Live, but it still is cheating. It is no different then game saving. Will prob get deleted by the mods anyway.
