i'm fairly certain the right trigger is throw, when you've picked something up by hand. gordon ain't too strong, though.

For the Puttin On A Clinic achievement, it's actually at the end of the "Riding Shotgun" chapter no "Under the Radar"

I missed it on my first run through aswell...

It comes up as soon as you kill the last sniper from what I remember.

What chapters are those in?

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.
What chapters are the Snipers in what how many are there?

When the antlions are coming up from those holes, you have to plug them up by putting a car over it with the gravgun. Just keep pushing the car into antlions with the gravgun. You should get updates too(5/15 and 10/15).
What chapters are those in?

What chapter is this in?

Great job, I'm actually using this guide right now as I'm going through.

But Revenge comes before Yorticough, just let you know so people don't waste their time looking around for that area before they defeat the chopper.

In the Chapter titled "Under the Radar", after your car breaks down, you will have to take down the chopper. When it drops the little bombs, pick it up with the gravgun and shoot it at the chopper. It will take 4-5 of these. If you miss just reload an autosave.
If you just hold the bombs, and do not shoot them, then it DOES NOT count as a miss. i did that twice and still got the ach.

You get the achievement in Nova Prospekt when you are in the small room between two rows of jail cells. Just play through the entire Nova Prospekt chapter and you'll have it. Check your achievement list to see if it unlocked and you didn't see it.

Welcome to the site friend. In the future don't double post but rather just edit your previous one. That way everything stays purdy and the mods can keep their focus on important stuff.

Ah. I thought I was out of Nova Prospekt because a new level popped up, Entanglements, but as it turns out that's where you get the achievement. Thanks.

I got that Car Crusher Achievements when you're with Alyx in a parking garage and you need to cover like 3 ant lion holes because they are swarming you. Just get behind a car and when an ant lion is close hit the RT. The car hits them and "crushes" them. Thats how I got the achievement since the ant lions never stop spawning until you cover those 3 holes.

This was a really impressive guide, what i mean by that is how you sorted out every achievement in the order where you would get it in the game. I just printed that guide out and i got every half-life achievement in one play through.

To get this one you need to kill X number of guys (five, I believe) with the same energy ball; an energy ball being the secondary fire on the pulse rifle typea thing you get. My memory's a little fuzzy on this one... but I believe I got this one near the end of the game in a dark parking garage, the ball shot off the walls and disintegrated all of them.
I can't remember the level I got it in... but anywhere there's a large number of soldiers in a relatively small area will work. Hope I helped! Good luck

Can anyone tell me how to get pacifist? The explanation provided isn't helping much. Do I launch the mine at something? What is the "opener" thing? Is this done before or after Alyx recharges it to be friendly?

I've been having some problems with the man-hack achievement. I've shot several of them at enemies with the gravity gun but the out of 5 counter isn't going up. Do you have to kill 5 enemies with one man hack to get the acheivement then? Anyone got this that can shed some light on it please?

**EDIT**
Sorry, think I might be confusing a man hack with a hopper mine. Haven't seen any man hacks though to even try for this achievement. Where are they?

1. You don't need 1 manhack to kill 5 enemies, you can use all manhacks through the game.
2. Maybe you don't know what a manhack is and you are shooting the wrong things? It's the red flying thing with the zooming sound.

Hope this helps

Thanks a lot that answers my question...had no idea what the man hacks were but of course I've encountered loads of them. I just hope I haven't run out of them or the hopper mines otherwise I'll have to do Anti-citizen one all over again.

You know what's pathetic? The fact that you come on here and flame this members work with an anonymous account or that you're very first post on this site is not only unproductive but downright deserving of a ban. Just my opinion...

I did notice during my playthrough that some of the achievements are out of order which made me nervous that I had missed one, but it all worked out in the end.

Hey guys, thanks for the (mostly) positive responses, but really the credit goes to Pyroman cause he made up the guide, I just laid it all out.

I never said it was in order of how you get them. That would be impossible to do because you can do a lot of them in any order you want. It's in order from what's shown at the start menu. I didn't write the guide and therefore I am not the one being unspecific, but it doesn't seem like anyone else is having any problems whatsoever. I think it's plenty specific and it has helped me, and many other people out. Sorry someone didn't hold your hand to give you your 1000 points.

Next time don't join a site to complain, join it to contribute.

Sadly, the whole episode.
P.S. Don't flame people for making a great guide. If "it sucks balls", then let's see you make a better guide.

Haha, maybe if you'd like to become a welcome member of this site you might try dialing it back a bit. You know, make some new friends rather than getting everyone riled up.

As to your question I haven't played episode 1 or 2 yet so I can't help but the guide was useful to me for the original campaign.

Welcome to the site by the way, most people here are quite friendly, be nice please, or else do us all a favor and get your achievement information elsewhere.
