Achievement Guide and Roadmap

Roadmap

Overview:

-Estimated achievement difficulty: 4/10
-Offline: 36 (1000)
-Online: 0 (0)
-Approximate amount of time to 1000: 12-15 Hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 but multiple replaying of missions needed for rank 5.
-Number of missable achievements: 0 (Some achievements require ability points. There are more abilities than points. You can reset points with cost of a level).
-Do cheat codes disable achievements? No Cheats
-Does difficulty affect achievements? Yes. Tough as nails achievement requires Hard Mode but you could play on Versus instead for a possibly easier time.
-Glitchy achievements: No
-Unobtainable achievements: None
-Extra equipment needed? None

Introduction

Right away you need to know to play all your games on Versus or Hard to get Tough as Nails achievement. Just play all campaign missions this way to assure your 1000 comes without worry of multiple play-throughs. There is no way to check what levels you have played on what difficulty, or if you beat them on Versus or not. So to be safe, just play on Versus when doing campaign. If just going for XP, you can play with Easy bots in freeplay. Also, do not do the three star challenges until you have gotten every other achievement. Do the other ones to gain the unlockables and for free starter XP. Case in point, do the 1 and 2 star challenges before playing. As you level, the bots get harder for the mentioned challenges. You can create up to 10 characters, so just create a new one after you finish the game to grab the challenge oriented achievements.

Achievements can be earned in private matches or freeplay as well but not during challenges. Considering this, boosting certain things are possible. Go HERE to find boosting partners.

Step 1: Campaign on Versus Mode (or Solo Hard)

Before playing do all of the challenges from the main menu that give unlockables. That would be all 1 and 2 star challenges. Afterwards start Versus mode. It is important you play on Versus mode from the start of the campaign if you want the easiest time. This gives you more XP, ensures you unlock the needed Audio Logs, and potentially will make your campaign run faster. If you join in the middle of a match and win, for example, you'll still get credit but have only played half of it. You will unlock many achievements playing normally as the various classes. An extremely good class to play disregarding achievements is the Engineer. They can build turrets and place mines near Objective points to make it difficult for the opposing team. The turrets can earn you XP, boosting team mate gun damage, completing repair based objectives, etc. They seem to have the most things to do and can upgrade Command Posts. They are very defensive (repairing, removing hack boxes, and disarming HE charges). Many missions require you to defend until time runs out. This class makes that happen a lot easier.

Favorite Weapon: Kross SMG (Muzzle Brake, Front Grip, Yeotek Red Dot, SMG Drum Magazine). Some people complain there is too much recoil in this game. Using this weapon you will experience almost no recoil at all.

Step 2: Misc. Achievements and Rank 5

If you haven't been focusing much on achievements while playing campaign missions, go ahead and finish them off here while trying to earn 300,000 XP to reach rank 5 (level 20). Always play online modes even if private to get the extra 20%. This will make leveling much faster.

Step 3: Challenges

Create a new character to play the three star challenges with. Playing as a level 20 will be extremely frustrating because of the AI on your team not helping. Since it is a new character you will have to play all of the 1 and 2 star challenges over again, but it's worth it doing it all in this order. Once you ave completed them, you will have completed the game.

Conclusion

The game's achievements overall are straightforward and easy. There can be some frustration with the game because of bot AI and also lag when playing online. There is nothing else to really do after gaining all achievements except wait for DLC which will most likely raise thel level cap. Because of the nature of this type of game, updates are also to be expected.

If you're looking for a guide that seperates achievements based on story, class, etc, then feel free to head over to this guide HERE made by Xx Overkill VR

That's how you win a match 10
While on defense, take down an attacker who's completing a Primary Objective

You will get this easily while playing through the game. Just kill anyone that is trying to do one of the primary objectives. This includes all types: hacking, planting charges, repairing, etc.


Not over till the fat lady sings 10
Take down an enemy with gunfire while knocked down

Sometimes you will get knocked down but actually still be alive. Before you get up, kill an enemy. You get knocked down by melee attacks (not knife), explosives/grenades, or even by someone jumping down and landing on you (usually accidently).

Note: There is an ability called "Downed Fire" which lets you shoot while incapacitated. You must be Rank 5 to unlock it, but this ability is not required for the achievement, even though the achievement picture is the same as the ability picture.


Cut 'em off at the pass 10
Close an enemy team's shortcut

A really easy level to get this is on the Resistance mission What-If: Operation Babel. As an engineer, do either of the secondary objectives "Construct Main Barricade" and "Construct Side Barricade". If you keep dying, set up a private freeplay game with no bots on the map "Shipyard". You can now create it without trouble. If you start as resistance, change teams via in game menu.


Oh I'm sorry, was that yours? 10
Capture an enemy Command Post

During any form of play, press and open the Objective Wheel. Choose the objective to take over an enemy's Command Post. You can also find them by chance. They must be controlled by the enemy for the achievement to unlock.

Note: You cannot go to the spawn point and capture their main Command Post.


Not so sneaky now, are you? 10
Reveal an enemy in disguise

Required Class: Operative (or any other if you shoot them out of disguise)
Required Ability: Homing Beacon
Ability Unlocked: Rank 2

To get this achievement, the opposing team must have Operatives that are actively disguising themselves. You must then focus your aim on them (holding ) and reveal them. The game will not do it automatically. If you find another person with your gamertag, then you know they are a fake. If you see someone not shooting the opposing team, or doing any objectives, you can also figure they may be a fake. Is the other team ignoring them completely and shooting you? Suspicious team mates hanging around enemies without being attacked? You come into a zone plagued with enemies and one of your team mates, camping together. That is who you will want to focus your aimer on.

Note: You can also pick any class and just shoot them out of disguise. This achievement may unlock without you even being aware you were doing it.


You shall not pass! 20
While on defense, prevent the attackers from completing their first objective

This should come naturally and is easier on some levels. But an even easier way is to start up a private match with a defend based objective and let the timer run out. Remember, no bots. You can change sides if you're not on the defense side as well.


Was it the red or the blue wire? 10
Disarm an HE charge

Required Class: Engineer
Required Ability: Standard Engineer Kit
Ability Unlocked: Rank 1 (automatically unlocked)

There will be missions where the opposing team has a main objective to destroy something. There are a few secondary ones as well. Once a soldier on another team plants a charge, you must disarm it by holding on it.


Great shot kid! One in a million 10
Take down an enemy by shooting a grenade

Required Class: Any
Required Ability: Grenade Shooting (Universal ability)
Ability Unlocked: Rank 1

Throw a grenade by pressing . Now shoot at it while it's near an enemy (in the air, or on the ground). With a little luck you should be able to pull this off.


They never knew what hit them 20
While on offense, win the match in less than 30% of the time limit

This achievement can be pretty tough. To make it one of the easiest achievements in the game, start up freeplay with no bots. An easy one to do is Aquarium. Plant the charge, then escort the VIP. Of course there could be easier/faster methods. This is just an example.


The story has just begun 100
Win both story campaigns (not including What-If missions)

Complete every mission in both campaigns (Security and Resistance). Remember it's best to do this all in Versus so you can get all of the Audio Logs.


You've escaped the Ark 75
Win all main missions of the Resistance campaign (not including What-If missions)

See "Viva la revolution" achievement description.

The start of something big 20
Win any mission, whether campaign or What-If

You will get this upon your first win, as long as it's a campaign mission.


You've saved the Ark 75
Win all main missions of the Security campaign (not including What-If missions)

See "To serve and protect" achievement description.


Viva la revolution! 50
Win every Resistance campaign mission, including What-If missions

This requires you to complete each of the missions on the bottom set of missions (Resistance). You can do this in any mode while in campaign (solo, versus, etc). To see what missions you have completed, look to the right and you'll see a circle. If it is complete, it will be filled in.


Day 1: Getting Answers
Day 2: Breakout
Day 3: Chen's Plans
Day 6: Black Box
Day 7: Attack on CCity
Day 8: Airborne
What-If: Operation Babel
What-If: Critical Reaction


Use the wheel, earn more XP 10
Complete an objective after first selecting it on the Objective Wheel

First pull up your objective wheel with and use to navigate around. Choose any of the objectives to make it your priority. It will be highlighted. Now just complete it.


I think I know a shortcut 10
Open a shortcut for your team

There are a few levels this can be done. In Security campaign, the level Day 4: Dirty Bomb has a secondary objective "Construct Side Stairs". You will need to be an Engineer to complete this objective. On the Resistance mission What-If: Critical Reaction, as an engineer do the secondary objective "Repair the Bridge Access Panel". You can find these on your Objective Wheel to make them easier to find.


To serve and protect 50
Win every Security campaign mission, including What-If missions

This requires you to complete each of the missions on the top set of missions (Security). You can do this in any mode while in campaign (solo, versus, etc).

Day 1: Hostage Rescue
Day 3: Smash and Grab
Day 4: Dirty Bomb
Day 5: Prison Break
Day 6: Early Launch
Day 8: Fallout
What-If: Chopper Down
What-If: Grand Theft Aero


Tough as nails 80
Win all storyline campaign missions (exc. What-If missions) in either Online Versus, or in Hard mode

You will have the most luck doing this in Versus. Since you have to do Versus to get all audio logs anyways, then it's automatically what you must play. Only those who do not have online access might think to play on Hard mode. If you join a match that has 5 seconds left and your team wins, then that counts as a win even though you didn't start the match or do anything in it. If you seem to have horrible luck with this game, it might be best to quit out and try your luck getting into matches that are near over.


Well done! 10
Complete your first 1 Star Challenge

See "King of the world!" achievement description


Very well done indeed! 20
Complete your first 3 Star Challenge

See "King of the world!" achievement description


No I insist, you take it 5
Use the last of your Supplies to refill a teammate's ammo rather than your own

Required Class: Soldier
Required Ability: Standard Soldier Kit
Ability Unlocked: Rank 1 (automatic from start)

Just keep giving your team your ammo by holding when close to them and the game indicates that you can. Before your last reload of ammo, shoot a few but instead of reloading, give that pack away so that the bottom number on your ammo is 0 and your top is less than whatever full is.

It's a trap! 10
Take down an enemy with a Satchel Charge

Required Class: Soldier
Required Ability: Satchel Charge
Ability Unlocked: Rank 5

You can plant up to 3 at a time but you can kill an enemy with one depending on how close they are and what body type they are using. Press and hold where you want to plant the charge. It will explode if it is short or a grenade goes off near it. You can also make it explode when looking at it and the icon above it indicates you can detonate.


Who's bad? 25
Complete all 1 Star Challenges

See "King of the world!" achievement description.


You're going places, kid! 20
Reach Rank 2

See "Time to start a new character" achievement description.


Time to start a new character 100
Reach Rank 5

Rank 5 requires you to be a level 20. You will get most of your levels by playing through the campaign in Versus. Depending on how much you win, how well you do personally, and even what mission you play will result in how much XP you get. If you complete the match you get an additional 15%, and if you play online you get an extra 20%. This is another reason it's good to always play Versus. Even if you are doing solo missions, make sure you at least just set it to a private match to get that extra 20%.

Rank 1: 0 XP (level 0)
Rank 2: 15,250 XP (level 5)
Rank 3: 60,750 XP (level 10)
Rank 4: 148,000 XP (level 15)
Rank 5: 300,000 XP (level 20)



King of the world! 100
Complete all 3 Star Challenges

There are a total of 4 challenges to complete. You must do the first and second Star Challenges in order to unlock the 3rd for each. They hardly change and add a little bit more difficulty. Straight from Splash Damage out of the strategy guide, they state the higher you rank up the harder they become. So it's best to do the first couple for each challenge to get all unlockables, then play the campaign. Once done with campaign, create a brand new level 0 character to do the challenges with. After completing the 1st/2nd Star Challenges prior, and by learning lots of the game from playing so much and hitting rank 5, you should not have too much trouble completing them now.

Be More Objective: Here you must do objectives with the various classes. Your AI team will not help hardly at all. This is the most frustrating of the challenges. You will get shot randomly and get taken down quickly. Make sure you use the high ground often. Do this challenge first.

Parkour This: This is the easiest of the challenges. There are no enemies. Be sure to do this one last so you don't gain experience from it (so you don't gain a level).

Escort Duty: This mission can be a little bit tough but it's more about the time. If you keep killing enemies and moving on you will do fine.

Tower Defense: The way it works is there are 3 rounds with various amounts of enemies in each wave. You must kill them and protect the Command Post. Place a mine near the objective but not directly in front of it. An enemy has to step off of for it to detonate. If you die, it will be your safeguard. Also remember you can self buff your weapon damage and refill ammo by accessing the Command Post every time you need it.

Click below and you will find videos and more in-depth discussion on the challenges.

3-Star Challenge Guide by Maka


Well that was educational 50
Collect all Audio Logs

There are a total of 74 Audio Logs. To gain all audio logs you must complete levels in campaign. It does not matter if you have all bots or a mixture of humans and bots. If you join a match already in progress, you will still unlock the audio logs. Therefore, if you have trouble with this game you may want to keep joining random matches and hope you land in one that is almost over and your team is winning. Keep playing until you get them all. They seem to be random when they unlock, but playing Versus (every level) seems to work well. It's a possibility they unlock also with certain secondary objectives being complete, so make sure you focus on those at times just in case. If not boosting for getting to level 20, you should get this before you hit that rank.

You can get audio logs in solo mode, but either way, you will likely want to play versus to collect the rest and get the Tough as Nails achievement easier.

To look a list and more detailed guide on the Audio Logs, please visit the guide thread below:

Audio Log Guide by A. Gamer

Note: You may play solo levels by yourself, without any bots and still unlock Audio Logs. If missing some logs, go ahead and try each level by yourself doing all objectives.


Smart decisions win battles 10
Attempt to Revive an objective-class teammate over a non-objective teammate near a Primary Objective

Required Class: Medic
Required Ability: Standard Medic Kit
Ability Unlocked: Rank 1 (automatically unlocked)

While a Medic, you will have no real objectives to complete like the other classes do. While at an objective, there are times when multiple people will get downed near it. If you revive the class which is tied to that specific objective, but they are both near it, then you will unlock the achievement. You can find these team mates by pulling up your objective wheel and seeing a team member's name.

Note: Like the description mentions. this must be a primary objective which are always gold on your objective dial. They are also listed before you start the missions.


I live… again! 5
Revive yourself

Required Class: Any
Required Ability: n/a
Ability Unlocked: n/a

When you get downed, wait around for a medic. Keep the box associated highlighted so that you do not respawn. Once a medic throws you a shot, hold to revive yourself.

Note: There is a medic ability where you literally can revive yourself without another medic needed. This is not what the achievement requires.

You can place another mine now 10
Take down an enemy with a mine

Required Class: Engineer
Required Ability: Mine
Ability Unlocked: Rank 1 (automatically unlocked)

The mine is an ability you get from the start. To place one, hit and place the mine somewhere you know enemies will be running by. The mine will not detonate until they actually step off of it. Therefore, you will want to place it near an objective but not right in front. Otherwise they can still get the objective done first and even possibly be killed by someone else.


Pump up the volume! 10
Upgrade your team's Command Post

Required Class: Engineer
Required Ability: Command Post Upgrade
Ability Unlocked: 3

You can only upgrade the command posts that you don't spawn at and that you already own. While in the class class/weapon screen, just let it sit there and it will upgrade automatically.


T'is better to give than receive 10
As a Medic, using the Transfer Supplies ability, give the last of your Supplies away

Required Class: Medic
Required Ability: Transfer Supplies
Ability Unlocked: Rank 2

As you run around as a Medic, you will get opportunity to refill your team's supplies. An interaction prompt will appear on the team member who needs them or is low. Refill by holding on them.


A bit of a headache 5
Take down an enemy with a Cortex Bomb

Required Class: Operative
Required Ability: Cortex Bomb
Ability Unlocked: Rank 4

With this ability, upon being downed, you will be able to detonate yourself and kill anyone standing nearby. To detonate, just hold down . Many times you will get downed while in close quarters, so you'll want to detonate right away. Other times if no one is near, just wait and there's a chance someone will run up to finish you off (common with bots).


Boom! 10
Detonate a HE Charge

Required Class: Soldier
Required Ability: Standard Soldier Kit
Ability Unlocked: Rank 1 (automatically unlocked)

There will be objectives in missions where you must plant this charge. Run to this objective and hold on it. A timer will start and you must protect the charge until it explodes. While on the list of missions, just highlight and anything that says "destroy" in it as an objective description means you will be planting a charge.


That mine you found? Disarmed! 10
Spot a mine which is later defused by another Engineer

Required Class: Operative
Required Ability: Standard Operative Kit
Ability Unlocked: Rank 1 (automatic from start)

In order to get this you must find a mine layed down by the opposite team. They are highlighted red for this class only. Look at the mine and aim at it. A bar will fill up and it will now be highlighted for the rest of your time. Now an engineer must come over and defuse it. The achievement can be somewhat tricky as it's rare for them to be defused, even by bots.

Note: You cannot be the Engineer that defuses the bomb you spotted. It must be someone else.


Brinksmanship 10
Complete an Operative Primary Objective within 5 seconds of breaking disguise

Required Class: Operative
Required Ability: Standard Operative Kit
Ability Unlocked: Rank 1 (automatic from start)

To go into disguise, go to any dead enemy's body and hold . The only objective for an operative is to hack. Oddly, hacking breaks disguise and is usually fairly slow. Also, if you die, the other team will likely take off your hack box and cause you to do it all over again. The scenario the game wants was as follows: You died at 95% or so hacking. You spawn, get in disguise, and go back to the objective. You then finish the hacking. This is extremely rare and unlikely, especially against bots. So what you need to do is hack until 95%, disguise yourself with a body nearby (or create one), then finish the hack. Remember the disguise breaks when you start hacking.

Note: As long as you are in disguise when an operative objective is complete (by someone else) you will still get the achievement. You had to have been a part of the hack at some point.

I have obtained this achievement by simply just killing an enemy I knew was disguised. He had my gamertag and my friend saw him go into the disguise so I simply shot the hell out of him and the achievement popped without having to use this ability.

Other than that this looks to be a good guide. I would like to add that you generally have the achievements in random order. Perhaps organizing them by the class necessary to unlock it, Miscellaneous, and then Story related (not really, but kinda fits as a category). But just some extra organization would help.

As it is now thought. Seemingly great guide for a fairly easy 1000 GS.

I have shot people that were disguised but did not get the achievement a few times. Were you maybe an Operative ? When you focused to shoot maybe it revealed him. Maybe others can comment too and I'll change it.

I have them in this order because it's what the site has them as. I may change it to class specific and spruce things up if more people think it's needed. Thanks for the input, appreciate it!

And he's me thinking (and remembering you saying) you weren't going to make a guide for this game...

Nice one!

Very informative. Just one suggestion.

On the 1 star part. You refer to "king of the world". You have scroll a bit down past other achievements to see this info. Can you not put all the star challange achievements beside each another . Should make it more user friendly.

Also....

I have 1 audio log to get. Only thing i have not done are the "What if's" in versus. Do you think i need to do them to get the last audio log?

It's the second audio log in AWU General Secretary Joe Chen section.

Any clue?

Nice detailed guide, looking to pick this game up once it drops in price a little. One question though, does this game have split-screen? This'll be a make or break for me.

Yeah, my brother. I'm always looking for a good co-op game and i thought this could be it. Also, my connection to live is sometimes shaky and isn't always a pleasant gaming experience.

Sorry for hijacking the thread, Tyger.

I was not an Operative at the time. I was a Medic. I am not entirely sure why I the achievement popped up for me, as i assumed you would have to use that ability that you say you need. I haven't played as anything other than a Medic yet, but somehow, someway the achievement popped when it shouldn't have. It could have been a glitch of some kind. I'm not entirely sure.

You're welcome I've used your guides many times before and they are all top notch, so I figure any constructive criticism helps out. And Thank You sir for all the amazing guides! You make the life of an achievement whore that much easier

It's the second audio log in AWU General Secretary Joe Chen section.

Yes, you must have missed one in Versus. I didn't have much of a test but here is what I did. I had 4 more audio files to go. I had completed all missions in versus, and had completed the 4 what if missions solo. 2 of them I completed on Hard mode by myself (before I tried Versus). Before I replayed the What Ifs in Versus, I attempted more regular story missions to see if I would unlock auido logs. I got zero. I replayed the 4 what ifs and they each game me one more audio log.

Someone test something, play a regular mission on Versus that you have never completed before. How many audio files do you get? I'm thinking 3.

There is a forumla I think it's somethine like this, but I'm probably wrong because there are a lot more audio files.

Complete mission - 1 audio file
Complete mission Hard mode - 2 audio files
Complete mission in Versus Mode - 3 audio files

What Ifs I think differ, 1 audio file less.

I think audio files are also unlocked behind the scenes during cut scenes. There are 74 audio files and I am sure I did not see that many unlock.

Now just to do the 3 star challanges! Can't be bothered, but last achievement.

3-Star Challenge Guide, if you're interested:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=309704

Never Knew What Hit Them video guide, if you're interested: (Shows how to set it up, visually). - Also, it's faster than escorting the hostage I believe.

Weird, tried it in a solo campaign, Security What-If: Chopper Down, never popped it.

Went into a Freeplay and bamf, first kill >.>

I've also shot people who were disguised and not got the achievement.

There's one thing that doesn't make sense to me in your guide. The details for Smart Decisions Win Battles. You keep saying in the description to revive the person who IS NOT tied to the objective, yet the achievement description says the exact opposite, and the achievement title implies the opposite... You should be reviving the person who IS tied to the objective. Hence being a smart decision. So in your escort example, you should revive the MEDIC, not the other random class. Unless you get the achievement by doing the exact opposite of the achievement description and it was just programmed like that.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, your method of unlocking all Audio Logs can't possibly be correct. Your method implies that you will have to unlock Tough As Nails by the time you unlock all audio logs. Last night my friend got the achievement for all audio logs, but he still hasn't done the last two Security campaign missions on versus, nor the last 3 Resistance campaign missions.

Smart decision info is correct. Read the description it again it will make more sense.

As far as diaries I'm still waiting on more feedback. Did.he play those in feeeplay?

Great guide, but I just wanted to point out a few things

For the "Great Shot Kid. One in a million" achievements I had to kincapacitate the enemy by shooting the grenade for it to unlock not by just knocking them over.


I know this is still a WIP, but I found a couple of common typos that I figured I would let you know about.
  • Introduction section
"Jus play all campaign missions this way to assure your 1000 comes easy."

  • Step 1: Campaign on versus mode

"It is imortant you play on Versus mode from the start of the campaign."

"This gives you more XP, ensures you unlock the needed Audio Diaries, and potentally will make your campaign run faster."

  • You shall not pass!
This sould come naturally and is easier on some levels.

  • Not so sneaky now are you?
You must then focus your aim on them (holding ) and reval them.

  • Its a trap!
You can also make it explode when lookng at it and the icon above it indicates you can detonate.

  • Smart Decisions Win Battles
While a Medic, you will have no real objetives to complete like the other classes do.

  • Brinkmanship
Note: As long as you are in disguise when an opertive objective is complete
  • "T'is better to give than receive" achievement
As you run around as a Medic, you will get oppurtunity to refill your team's supplies. An interaction prompt will appear on the team member who needs them or is low. Refill by holdig on them.
