The achievements look like a good set. They look reasonably easy (although some will be time consuming)

However, there is one that sticks out as REALLY difficult.
Surviving ALL 50 rounds of Locusts in the horde mode seems super hard

EDIT: Some people, having played the game, have said this isn't too hard as you can just get it on casual. Thats a relief

Maybe. For the achievement, it stated it could be done on any difficulty. It might not be so bad on Casual. And, also, I haven't read anywhere what difficulty the Epic testers tried so for all we know, it could have been Hardcore or Insane difficulty.

Apparently the best at OXM only made it to 7 on Horde, and the best at Epic only make it to 25. But there was no difficulty mentioned. The achievements seem enjoyable, and most will unlock as you play through.

My understanding of horde mode is that it starts pretty easy and ramps up. I haven't heard anywhere that you can set the difficulty in this mode. I may be wrong tho

i was thinking that the weapon achievement ones might be easy but then i remembered that only one certian type of kill counts per match. but you could do some player matches on one round and get it that way meh......either way my ass has got 5 days after the release off from work and i dont think ill sleep all five of those days. see you all online.

I think the seriously 2.0 achievement could actualy be quite fun and not to hard considering that you can do it online and in the campaign.
i think completeing all 50 rounds of horde will be the toughest achievement but it will be good to have a try at it.
other than that the other achievements seem to be pretty easy

i think they dropped the ball on this one, they look too easy !!!! the 100 kill for each weapon on gow 1 was awesome and took some time and kept you playing, but if you get the achievements quickly then you most likely arent gonna play as much.

Yeah they do seem alot easier, not a bad thing if you ask me.

And as for keeping you playing, I think playing 1999 rounds of Multiplayer was pretty much got that rapped.

I think people are overlooking the fact that seriously 2.0 will still take a butt load of time. Look at Undertow's "Lord of the deep" - 80 kills in 1.5 minutes and 10,000 kills STILL took forever.

I wonder how many kills you get for hoard mode per hour?
If seriously 1.0 took a minimum of 100 hours, with 100 kills/hour (minus gathering times, etc)

seriously 2.0 will take a minimum of
1000 hours with 100 kills/hour
500 hours with 200 kills/hour
200 hours with 500 kills/hour
100 hours with 1000 kills/hour

and YES, i know all modes count, I'm just stating how long it will take to get 100,000 kills using the above figures. When we figure out how many you can kill in an hour of hoard, take 100,000 / (kills per hour) = length of time needed.

i agree with this. i believe that it was tested on insane so casual may be okay... i wont stop til i do it on insane tho probably using gridlock =D

i dont think this is as bad as it sounds.. this is less than 200 games on 10 rounds.. i usually plays 18 rounders so i think think i worked it out as playin 112 games. so not to bad at all

Yes, if you go and check ur leaderboard stats from GoW 1, you will see that its not that much.

I reckon it's the equivalent of getting about 2000 kills in GoW 1. (based on average of 1 kill a round)

i think the achievements in this sequel are pretty much the same as the 1st. Beat this mission get the achievement, find all of this get the achievement, and kill this with that. Only thing that seems hard is that survive 50 rounds horde mode. i think no matter how you set the difficulty.....50 rounds sounds a lot and the last few rounds shouldn't be too easy no matter you set it.
