Achievement Guide and Roadmap



This guide can only be used here on X360A unless otherwise stated by the sites owners or myself. If you have any questions about this guide then please PM me or reply here. Thank you.

Overview:

Estimated achievement difficulty: 3/10
Offline: 29
Online: 1 (Connection to Facebook)
Approximate amount of time to 1000: 7+ hours
Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 2 for the story and several for the galleries
Missable achievements: Yes
Do cheat codes disable achievements?: N/A
Does difficulty affect achievements?: No
Glitchy/ed achievements: Hungry for Fame
Unobtainable achievements: None
Extra equipment needed?: None

Any feedback is welcome and any tips for unlocking any of the achievements for this game are also welcome here.

Introduction:
Cabela has brought out a new title for the year 2012 and like previous titles this one allows you to go on a the adventure of a lifetime to kill trophy animals for fame.

Step 1 - Galleries:

Your first port of call is the galleries section as these are the easiest to obtain and the quickest. Start up the galleries and always choose the first course out of each category. The achievements you should get here are; Let Them Fall, Clean!, Hunting the Hunters, Deadeye, True Hero, King of Reflexes and Demolition Expert.

Step 2 - Story Mode:

After completing the galleries you will be free to complete the story mode, this should last around 5 hours depending on how quickly you are able to work your way through each level and how quickly you are able to kill each trophy buck etc. Achievements you should gain here include; Detective, Bushman, Adrenaline Seeker, Close and Personal, Paparazzi, Skill or Luck?, Spoorer, Archer, Anatomy Saved My Life, Bow Mastery, Hunting for Money, Shadow and Become a Legend.

Step 3 - Story mode again:

You will need to play the story mode again in order to clean up the rest of the achievements and play through all levels using only the Trophy Gun and the Compound Bow. A quick run through will do. Remember that you must replay levels to play with the trophy gun and compound bow, not start a new game. Achievements you should get here include; Pimp my Gun, Hungry for Fame, Pump It Up, Gun Slinger, Heartbreaker, Secret Seeker, Gun Master, Devarminator, Lucky Luke and Good Reflexes!.

Simple game really, just takes time to get the full 1000G as you have to play through the story up to two times.

Gallery Achievements:

Hunting The Hunters - 15
Shoot 10 predators during a single player Arcade Shooting Gallery.

This is a simple achievement, in order to get this load up the first level on Montana (Woodlands) and as soon as you see a red sign in front of you look in to the distance on the right. Two mountain lions will run across the screen, shoot them and then don't shoot anything else. You will fail that section so will have to replay, rinse and repeat five times until you unlock the achievement. Also remember after each two kills to shoot the ground in order to lose your bonus or else you will get more points that required so will have to continue.

King of Reflexes - 30
Win any 1 Player Reflex Shooting Gallery hunting all animals in the correct order.

Switch to the 'Reflex Galleries' and enter the first available. All you have to do here is shoot the animals that the game tells you to and in the order that their symbols are shown. If you get the order wrong don't worry, let the timer run around and retry.

Deadeye - 30
Win any single player Shooting Gallery while not missing a shot and scoring 20000 or more.

Load up the first Montana gallery once more (first on the list) and take your time through each section. Once you reach the points you need to move on don't shoot anything else, this makes it simpler. Shoot what you have to and then stop until the next section. Also, don't make the shot if you don't think you can hit anything. If you don't waste all of your lives you should easily get over the 20,000 points mark.

Demolition Expert - 15
Shoot 10 exploding cans in single player Target Shooting Galleries.

Load up the first gallery in Reflex Mode and shoot the red cans which are dotted around. Replay twice and you should get it, there are 8 cans in total in this particular gallery.

True Hero - 15
In any 1 Player Arcade Shooting Gallery make your Hunter Award reach five stars.

This is rather hard if you have trouble aiming. Load up the first gallery in Montana and make sure you get as many of the deer at the beginning as possible without missing. Continue to shoot the animals without missing and you should get this achievement quite easily. It takes 25 kills without missing for this achievement to unlock as each star takes five kills to fill up.

Let Them Fall - 30
Shoot 100 birds in single player Shooting Galleries.

This will come naturally when you do the above achievements, it was one of the first that popped for me. Just shoot the birds when you see them.

Clean! - 30
Hunt at least 75% of male animals in any single player Arcade Shooting Gallery.

Load up the Woods in Montana (first in the galleries) and play through. You need to shoot 42 or more of the larger animals (larger than rabbits for example). If you get 42 or more kills (first total when you finish the gallery) the achievement should pop for you.

Story Mode Achievements:


Pimp My Gun - 90
Unlock and fully upgrade all the firearms.

As simple as it sounds really, just upgrade all of the weapons available. (Need help with the totals.)

Pump It Up - 30
Hunt 300 birds with the Shotgun in Story.

Simply shoot 300 birds using the shotgun in the story mode, this may take you two playthroughs to get.

Hunting for Money - 90
Earn more than $50,000 in Story.

I got this around 3/4's through my first playthrough, just play as best as you can during each round and you should get this with little hassle.

Spoorer - 15
Find 20 tracks in Story.

Tracks are the yellow prints you will find using your detective mode, simple walk over them and press A in order to view the tracks. Do this 20 times and you will have your achievement.

Hungry for Fame - 30
Upload 20 pictures.

You can take pictures using your camera or every time you kill your trophy animal you get a special picture taken with it. You need to press X and login to Facebook using your details and then upload the picture, do this 20 times and you're done. This is glitched as I only need one more photo but the servers have seemingly stopped working. Works for some but others not.

Detective - 15
Spend 15 minutes total in detection mode.

You will be able to get this easily during the course of the story mode, but if you can't wait you can do it on the first level. As soon as you are taught how to use your detective mode simple stay in it until the achievement pops, just be careful your controller doesn't turn off midway!

Gun Slinger - 30
Shoot 10 trophy animals while using the Trophy Gun.

You will unlock the trophy gun before your second playthrough, so use it then. Simply kill your trophy animals with this weapon and repeat 10 times. You must REPLAY levels in order to use this weapon.

Bushman - 15
Spend one continuous minute fully covered by vegetation.

You can do this easily near the beginning of the game. Go in to cover within some bushes and wait for one minute, you will know if you're fully covered as the screen blackens near the edges.

Shadow - 30
Finish any location in Story without alerting any trophy animal.

I got this on the last level, but you could get it on any of the levels so long as you don't disturb your trophy animals before you kill them.

Anatomy Saved My Life - 15
Win 10 skill shots in Story.

Skill shots happen when larger animals jump out at you, you must react quickly to kill them. There are more than enough in the story mode to get this in one playthrough.

Heartbreaker - 30
Hunt 10 big game trophies by shooting them through the heart.

Simple, when aiming at your trophy animal shoot them in the chest area to kill them. Holding down LB to hold your breath will show you the animals vital organs.

Secret Seeker - 20
Find 7 hidden locations in Story.

All hidden locations being found currently.

Gun Master - 100
Finish every Story map using only the Trophy Gun and the Compound Bow.

On your second playthrough you will only be able to use the trophy gun and the compound bow, no other weapons such as rifles. You must REPLAY levels in order to use this weapon. DO NOT START A NEW STORY!

Close and Personal - 30
Shoot any big game from less than 15 yards.

I got this near the beginning of the game when doing a Target of Opportunity shot. If you don't get it simple creep up to a larger animal and shoot them at close range.

Devarminator - 30
Hunt 200 small game land animals in Story.

You will see various small animals running around as you make your way through the levels, simple shoot 200 of them to get this. It may take you the second playthrough to get.

Paparazzi - 15
Take 30 pictures in Story.

As soon as you are able to use your camera take 30 pictures one after the other to unlock this.

Become a Legend - 100
Finish Story Mode.

This achievement unlocks as soon as you finish the last level.

Skill or Luck? - 30
Hunt any trophy with one shot over 280 yards.

During the Mexico level and day two you will have to shoot across a large plain. Simple shoot near the trophy animal to startle it and have it run away, once the yards indicator says 280 yards+ aim at the animal and shoot. It may take a couple of tries as it's hard to shoot from such a large distance.

Bow Mastery - 30
Hunt 15 big game trophies while using the Compound Bow.

When it comes to hunting the trophy animals that aren't too far away, try your best to sneak up closer to them and take them out using the bow. Some of the trophies will need to be dealt with in this manor, but not all. Aim for the neck as it's a quick kill.

Archer - 15
Hunt a bird using the Compound Bow.

During the levels in which you have a bow, try to aim at a bird flying overhead. It can take a while to get the shot but it will happen.

Lucky Luke - 30
Hunt an animal from at least 40 yards without using your scope or sights.

Simple shoot and kill an animal without using your scope or sight, the beginning levels are perfect as they have plenty of trophy animals nearby.

Adrenaline Seeker - 30
Hunt a trophy animal while it's alerted and running away.

Alert an animal with a shot near them and once they start to flee shoot them and kill them, easy 30G that I got without realizing.

Good Reflexes! - 15
Hunt 10 Target of Opportunity animals.

At certain parts during the game animals will run out in front of you and the voice over guy will announce a target of opportunity, simple kill them to add one to your total. Rinse and repeat 10 times to get this, though it mat take you two playthroughs to unlock.

Don't worry, I did the exact same thing as you and now I'm right at the beginning! The post below yours is correct in saying you have to do a replay and pick the correct weaponry.

Are you sure you're getting the animals in the order that they appear on the screen? You have to make sure they're in the correct order and that you do them within the time limit all the way through the level.

Is it really a 4/10 seems a bit high for a Cabela game. Well Alaskan Hunt was pretty hard I suppose. I'll buy it and play it and I'll see how I rate it, I'll probably end up finding it harder now lol.

Also is the gun needed for this game?

It's not needed but would make things a little easier IMO.

I can not get by the first day, second hunt, I think, where you have to shoot 8 prong horned sheep. I tried this over and over and unless I can get by this, I'm stuck...and that sucks. I'm not worth a damn at hitting moving targets.

I don't think the hungry for fame achievement is glitched, it's just that the game will only let you upload about 15-17 pictures every 24hrs to Facebook. I got mine by taking the same picture over & over and uploading it (which it let me do 15 on first day), and I took a different picture repeatedly 24hrs later and uploaded it and got it after the 5th upload.

I've put it as glitched as it seems to be working for some but not others, still to this day it hasn't worked for me. Safer mentioning it.
