5 Kill all the snipers in City 17.

You can easily find these guys from the blue laser their gun emites. Just kill them anyway possible. This is pretty much story related. Just lob a grenade in the windows.
i think i missed a couple of guys when i went through. does this include the ones when you leave ravenholm? so if i started a checkpoint from the mission after ravenholm and made sure to shoot them all i'd get the achieve?

also how many of them just in case

Good to know. I did it several times and it didn't unlock. Just one of those things I bet. I know what it is: your have barrels with more explosives than mine.

That achievement is unlocked when you kill all the snipers in Chapter 11 "Follow Freeman". You don't have to kill any of the snipers before this chapter.

I forget but I think there were 4-5 (someone correct me if I'm wrong) snipers in Chapter 11. When you start the level you'll see one in front of you in the street. The one that is hard to miss is the one guarding the alley before the building on your left.

After that I think there is a sniper you kill before Barney tells you to take out the two pinning him down.

All of this takes place really early in Chapter 11 so if done right it can be unlocked quickly.

"Radiation Levels Detected"
5 Get through the toxic tunnel under City 17 in Half-Life 2.

Story related so you can't miss it.

Pyroman, bro... are you sure about this one? I just finished Water Hazard and never got the achievement.
Unless is part of a different chapter of HL.
Help me out with this one please

Btw, any of you have the Apearence Science Achievement? Is god-like to win every gold medal there... at least the time ones U_U

PS: The achievement system is kind of... broken... I found around three lambdas that were never added to the count... should we ask for a patch?

It is story related, it has no connection to water hazard though, I don't wanna spoil anything so just keep playing.

Aperature science is difficult to get but study enough videos and you should be able to get it, that's how I got it anyway.

I didn't find said missing symbols but did you destroy the crates near the symbol or made sure the symbol wasn't already found? Thats usually when you miss them.

i think this is for another part of the game. play through all 3 games and if you still don't have it....there you go.

you're sure you hadn't already passed them? and i'm not sure if the count comes up after EVERY one you find - though i could be wrong

-------------------------------------------------------------

P.S - Thanks asianxcore i'll run through chapter 11 again tommorow and see if it quickly unlocks it. i was actually gonna play through ravenholm again since theres no chapter start at the end of the mine (end of ravenholm).

Camera Shy Achievement

Quote:
You must start from chapter 1 and go through the entire game and get them in ONE RUN. The counter resets to 0 when you beat the game. Chambers that are not listed below, don't have cameras that can be taken down.
Do I need to play the levels that don't have cameras or can I just select the ones that have cameras?

Warden Freeman

For the achievement "Warden Freeman," it's a lot easier than it seems. When you enter the room with the turrets, simply set two of them up at one doorway, and one at another. I Doesn't really matter since the resistance will throw grenades or beat them down. Now hide in one of the compartments that the turrets were kept in, (preferably one closer to the center so that you can't see the doorways) and take out a revolver or a shotgun. Now after the resistance takes out the turrets, they will start to enter that room. When they run by, quickly take a head shot at them. Eventually you'll have a pile of bodies in front of you, and Alyx will finally come, and you can come out of hiding. It is definitely easier than it would seem.

Thought this might help. Good luck.

Anyone know a good area to get the "Hack Attack!" achievement? I tried starting at Nova Prospekt but every time I tried attacking Combine's my stupid bugs would attack the Manhacks. I was just wondering if there's an easier place to get this achievement?

Hey supac, i just got this one right now in Episode 1 Chapter 2. I got it after Alyx sends you down the elevator and you go solo for the first time. There are easily about 5-8 soldiers there.

I just played through "Under the Radar" and did not incounter the chopper, although on a previous playthrough I definatly running into it, I think it was in a previous chapter though.

Are you positive that Under the radar is the apropriate chapter to achieve "Puttin' on a clinic"?

Edit. I can now confirm that the "Puttin' on a clinic" achievement is unlockable towards the end of the chapter "Riding Shotgun" and not "Under the Radar"

Just clearing that up.

Hey, I tried searching for this but couldnt find an answer. With the camera shy achievement, I understand that if you FINISH the game the counter resets to zero, but what if you were up to say chamber 15 and realised you missed one back at the start of the chamber and couldnt get back. Can you reload the nearest chapter point and go through from there?

I don't know if this has already been said but I found an easier, less stressful way to get the Conservationist's achievement. The Pulse Rifle's Alt Fire is an Energy Ball. So just simply get five enemies with one shot and the achievement is yours . I recommend this on the level where you FIRST fight Striders on Half Life 2 and when you have to fight the Combine in a hall after releasing all three Generators(Fight the Power Achievement) shoot an energy ball into that hall under the Exit sign and you'll easily get 5-7 enemies with this.

Could please someone make a video of this or explain it again? I just cant get this...
Because I shoot a portal at the wall and one on the ground, then I walk into the one on the ground, portal myself up, fall again into it, portal up, fall again into it, gain velocity, and then I dont fall again into it, but I fly over it and land on the floor behind it because I was to fast...
