Hopefully this was not reported on another thread. If it was i'm sorry. i was able to open a few TF2 achievements offline. I selected system link, hosted a match and when i finished a complete game i saw that it was keeping track and giving me credit. I only tried this to check out the maps.

for the Keep Off the Sand achievement, are you not allowed to jump down on the sand in front of the base. Where you have a mini boss fight with the large antlion guy? I stayed off of the sand for the entire level until that point, but I figured you had to in order to get the pheromones and gain access to the base.

If anyone had a problem with this achievement too let me know. I never touched the sand and never had to kill a single antlion the entire beach section. Any tips would be helpful thank you.

for this achievement to unlock you cant touch the sand until you get past the thumper and up over the hill after you climb the hill to the other side you have to drop down to fight the antlion guard. you should get the achievement on top of the hill before the guard fight.

Nemesis
Get five revenge kills.

This is easy, me and a friend got this. All you have to do is let your friend kill you 5 times then he'll have punching gloves over his head. Then kill him and you'll get a revenge kill. Rinse and repeat 5 times.

you may have touched the sand and the antlions didnt come out that can happen if the earthquakes around you and the antlions dont come up it still counts as you touching the sand.

though i dont know if you did but get letting you and everyone know that you can touch the sand and sometimes the antlions wont come out

For the "Zombie Chopper" achievement, just use the Gravity Gun to kill enemies. Switching to different weapons doesn't cancel the achievement but it does if you press RT while the weapon is equipped. You'll get the achievement after you come out from the mineshaft(after you escort Father Gregori through the graveyard).

How did you guys transport that gnome in the car on the way to White Forest Base? As soon as I turn the gnome falls out of the car and I have to stay at a low speed. Unfortunately the trunk doesn't seem usable -.- so how did you guys get it there?

I deleted it from the list. It's just a logo and isn't an actual cache. That list needs some work...I found some myself that are not on the list. I am going to go through the game again and see if they missed something. I'll make a new list soon and make a new thread since it will be too long for a post.

Thanks.

Nice guide, which I'll keep on looking at for the Half Life 2 games, just for references.

The one where you get your HV suit, at the beginning.

I'm in Black Mesa East, I got the Grav Gun AND picked up the faceplate for the energy charger and got NOTHING.

Any idea why?

You end up in Dr Kliener's lab a second time after Nova Prospekt and that is when I unlocked the achievement for breaking the mini teleporter, so you can do it at either time.

I had a similar problem with them not ranking in, but it seems the problem was that I did the first one, started the second one but saved partway through, and went on to do other ones before coming back. When I finally did finish the second one I had started, it ranked in and then doing the other ones in started finally ranking in, so I think the issue is that you need to finish ones you start without moving on. I DID NOT do any of them in one sitting.

ok kids this isnt really a great guide but its better than nothing...

Pinata Party

1. after entering the tunnels and coming to the first water hole it will be under water. before getting to the vortigaunt that is saving alyx.

2. right after leaving the vortigaunts that are saving alyx and going into the tunnel with the main vortigaunt to get the extract. it will be on the wall.

3&4. after fighting the first wave of acid-lions there will be one and after fighting a second wave of acid-lions there will be another.

5. later on down the same tunnel there will be a weapons cashe above head.

6,7,8&9. will all be in the elevator room were you need to attach the gear (two above head and two on the walls)

Get Some Grub
now there is no way i am going to list where every single grub is... but here are some update points you can refer to.

-when you get to the vortigaunt saving alyx i had 93 grubs

-when you get to the weighted elevator i had 140 grubs

-when you get to the elevator with the thumper i had 224 grubs

i only got 331/333 but that just means if you have more than me at a checkpoint then you will be good. there also may be 2 later in the game.. i dont know

if anyone who has this achievement can tell me that they are only in the acid-lion tunnels that would be great.

EDIT:
There are 93 Antlion Grubs in Chapter 1
and 240 Antlion Grubs in Chapter 2.

For "Pedal to the Metal" It's not story related. You actually have to win the race against DOG at the end of Chapter 5:Under the Radar. It was to hard to race with trying to keep that damn gnome in my car.

How do you take down the Gunship with one Rocket? For the One Free Bullet achievement
Am I supposed to turn down the difficulty? Because it doesn't die unless I hit it with four or five rockets, does it have a weak spot like the rotor or something?

ROFL man read the achievement. Rockets, grenades, crowbar, and gravgun kills are OK.

Car Crusher
5Use the cars to squash 15 antlions in Episode One.

I got this in "Chapter 3 Lowlife"
After I fixed the second fuse box and I went through the door that open from said fuse box. I went up a set of stairs into a little underground garage type area. There was a hole where the Antlions came out of and you have to use the gravity gun to push the car on top of the hole. Instead of just plugging the hole I kept pushing a car toward the Antlions killing them and I did this till I got the achievement. If you plug the hole don't worry you can unplug it too by pushing the car out.

aww man the only thing I read was gravity gun kills were okay so I just went throughout the whole game (till that part) running around with the gravity gun, I even used a mine to kill the sniper =( I was sitting there trying to throw wood at that chopper in hopes of lodging it in the blade and taking it down -_- ty tho, I'll read more thoroughly next time

i think that all the achievements should be split up with there respective game. Its kind of hard to figure out what achievements i want to get for halflife 2 and episode 2 etc. unless im missing something

I found that getting the "Zombie-Que" Achievement was a bit easier to get in Chapter 3 when you fix the third fuse box and have to wait for the elevator to come down. There are several Flares around in the area and plenty of zombies to kill.

-when you get to the vortigaunt saving alyx i had 93 grubs

-when you get to the weighted elevator i had 142 grubs

-when you get to the elevator with the thumper i had 226 grubs

-when you get to the acid-lion guard (where the guard is first able to kill you) i had 263

i got all 333/333 just remember to look in the holes on the walls (there are none in the back of the holes high on the wall so dont worry). listen for the cricket sound they make. and the last grub is after the vortigaunts heal alyx.

Pyronman31 could you please add this and the Pinata Party guide to the achievement guide. ty
