I don't understand the achievement where you need to playthough Ravenholme with only the gravity gun, It was the only thing I used throughout but no achievement.

Are you not even allowed to switch too another gun or something? because a few time I acidently whipped out the crowbar, but never did anything with it.

I also accidentally pulled out the crowbar and was worried about the same thing, but alas, the achievement unlocked for me.




Not quite sure what you did wrong.

Are you allowed to use Gregori's "traps"?

When does the achievement unlock?

It should unlock when you go outside to see the buggy on the dock on Highway 17.

Easily done. Just keep sniping enemies as you go. You will get little popups as you go to(10/30 and 20/30).
This isnt exactly right, its after you kill the sniper in episode one, Alyx climbs up and gets it to back you up. Just run through the next part with only the gravity gun pushing the enemies into her path until she kills 30. You dont snipe at all

I've been stuck on Head of the Class with 8/9 for some reason. I've been playing each class and completing rounds with all of them. I wish it told you which ones you've done...

Since youve got nothing for the 'Conservationist' acheivement, Ill share my help so maybe you could add that in.
In the chapter "Follow Freeman!" once you find Barney and attempt to shut down the defenses by taking out the generators, on your way to one of the generators youll walk inside a room with doors on both sides.
There will also be 2 hoppers in the middle, unset and ready to be planted.
Theres small holes in the walls, and the Combine will lock you in this room by closing the doors.
Place the hoppers before each door and shortly, the Combine will bust through one of the doors (youll be able to tell which one by the laser thats cutting through)
Take out your pulse rifle and wait for your chance.
The door will open, some Combine storm in, hopper goes off, and after that is your chance to fire an energy ball straight at the door.
There'll be enemies in the doorway, some in the hallway, and if it went just right youll kill at least 5 enemies with one energy ball and hear that ever so satisfying achievement blip.

---Now Im sure you could condense that borderline essay into a short and simple addition for the guide, right?

Has anyone noticed that to achieve the advanced level achievements in Portal, you have to do them in one sitting? I played through two, got the achievement, then came back later to do the next two and didn't get the achievement for four. I had to re-do the first two again to get it to fire. My friend had the same issue.

You know the exact location of the lock that you use the one bullet on is when you first get your handgun.

Updated with more info.

Thanks to KissMyAsthma, lostboyz, and PhotoJ.

The lock is in the room you get pistol and shotgun in on the "Lowlife" level on Episode One.

The answer is simple just keep using the gravity gun and make sure you don't use the crowbar since one swing from it counts. switching weapons are okay but as long as you don't fire or swing the weapon that is all. Plus keep using the Gravity gun until the next chapter.

Find a hallway with high walls. Shoot one portal high up on the wall and then one on the ground. Keep falling through the portals WITHOUT hitting the ground or walls. You will get it fairly shortly.


Which would you recommend for high walls.. i have tried through level 18 and nothing... im not sure how to get this one done..

I used his traps and accidentally switched to my pistol but didn't fire and still got the achievement.

btw, for anyone who decides to beat episode one shooting only one bullet and making sure all the citizens make it to the train alive at the same time like I did, the rockets help a LOT. The crate of infinite rockets is pretty hard to miss, just clear the enemies, refill, pick up a group and run for the building, once inside you usually don't even need all 3 rockets to clear the guys and when you make it to Alyx she kills them pretty quickly.

yeah, what a pain in the ass. i think it's glitched to be honest. so what i did was make a save right before the elevator at the end for each one, then load each one up when i wanted to get all 6.


also do you have to get all lambda caches in one playthrough?

I think I accidentally switched to my crowbar and swung it into the air. So I didn't get the achievement but I was wondering if I had to make it through the cave before it gave it to me, or just until I reached Hollowed Ground? I wasn't sure when exactly it counted as "leaving."

Im pretty sure I got this just playing through normally on 19, in the room with 8 or so turrets. There is a nice jump setup that if you dont mess up you jump quite a ways.

I think we need to add "complete in one sitting" to the Portal advanced maps achievement since it appears I'm not the only one having the problem.

I had that problem after I beat the fifth advance map, I noticed after I had come back and beat the sixth and final advanced map. So after I beat the sixth I saved while playing the fifth one. When I came back later I was able to earn the achievement by beating the save file I had in the fifth.

Also, I just got Zombie Chopper and I had to clear the cave with the Gravity Gun to earn it.

Exactly like Hot PotatOwned achievement but in a different location.
I got this one in Episode 1 in the hospital, you will enter a room with combine and zombies fighting each other, on the right is a room with a bunch of zombies behind a door pounding on it, go past that, and in the last room on the right, there is a room with two combine soldiers. I suggest saving before entering. When you open the door have gravity gun ready, he will shoot, even if he misses you it will bounce around the room and you can still grab it, then just fire it back his way.

Hope this helps

EDIT: right before this part is also where I got HotPotatOwned, took me a couple tries because I saw a grenade on the floor and didnt know which combine soldier threw it.

I have located this symbol, but when I smash the box that is just inside the opening I do not get the achievement update.

I have tried several combinations of getting this but after several reloads I still have not be able to get this to trigger.

Can anyone who has this help me?
