Talking STOPWATCH achievements....cheat

A wounded little bird told me that you can get all the Stopwatch Achievements by replaying a mission, choosing the last chapter of each mission and simply beating only that portion. Any truth to this? I am away from my 360 for at least another 20 hours and would like someone to try it out.

Didn't work for me. I tried two levels that I still need Iron Man on. Started on the last segment, completed without dying, no achievement.

Don't waste your time trying this. I did most of the stopwatch achievements last night and the only reasonably hard one was Anvil because as a sniper you seem to go done in 2 or 3 shots.

The answer is no, and this thread ought to be shut down. The question has already been answered.

I'm on my first play through and am doing it on normal. It worked for me on the tank mission, i played all but the last checkpoint. came back to it a couple of hours later and when i finished the mission the achievement popped. Rather surprised because at the start i was messing around for ages trying to get used to the controls. I reckon in combined the mission probably took me an hour and half to complete.

for most of the people at the top its for the stopwatch achievement not

ironman, but this does work but u cant just load the last mission. u know

how there is 2 parts to every mission hince the loading screen in the

middle of them. if u do the the checkpoint just b4 the second part starts

( befor the loading screen) u can get the stopwatch achievement. its

easier than doing the whole mission.

If you load up the checkpoint BEFORE the mission Cut scene halfway through the level, you WILL get the Stopwatch achievement.
Normally just means you dont have to do the 1st checkpoint... just load up the second checkpoint and rush through it. I did all levels except Anvil this method and had about 5-10 mins left.

How do you tell which one is the mission before the cutscene. Some have like 8 parts. Also is there an easy way to get ironman achievements.

Best way is to go for the complete each level on normal or harder achieve (15gp) then on each level note down where the cutscene comes in, then restart on casual and load up that checkpoint. Generally its checkpoint 2, but on the bigger levels with more stages sometimes C/Point 3. Should complete that checkpoint then up pops a cutscene. Carry on and up pops 25gp

Oh for Ironman... unfortunatley..... no! Easiest way is the obvious! Put it on Casual and dont get hit. Get in vehicals as soon as you can as its the equivelant of an extra life. Tank blows up with you in it.... out you pop ready to carry on! Keep watching on the map for more tanks respawning.

Gaming has to be a hobby, and a passion. Never a necessity. Love the games, and love the friends, but don't ever love a high you may get from it. If the fun is gone and achievements are something you must have, you need to stop. Trust me, I would know.

I have been achievement-free since 4/17/08

i wonder how many people had that kind of thoughts cause actually he s quite right i mean games are still funny and achievements is a nice way to have people know what games you have finished on what difficulty did you got 10000 kills? man i m so glad i red this cause i definitly know i m not only a videogames addict i m a an achievements seeker now!!

I've done this on like 4 levels so far and its worked?

My friend also did it for every level on the game so i dunno why people are saying it doesnt work cause it clearly does.

You have to play the whole level for ironman.

When loading a checkpoint, just look at the loading screens. When they are different that will tell you if it's the first or second part of the mission. A little guide so you know where to start and don't have to keep reloading.

Darkness Falls
Capture Motor Pool

Captains of Industry
Capture Rail Depot

Anvil
Secure Guard Post 2

Graveyard
Neutralize Artillery

The Mountain King
Secure Fortress Door

Living Quarter

Secure Slums

History Repeats
???(i haven't played the last mission yet)

I'm going to try it again some time... Maybe an update did something. I'll confirm sooner or later after I'm done.

I just tried this on Captains of Industry and the achievement for stopwatch popped straight away.

Just to clarify - I have been slowly playing through the campaign on the normal difficulty setting (I am not a fan so it has been taking a while). I thought I would see if this would work, so I loaded Captains of Industry on the Capture Rail Depot checkpoint on Casual difficulty. Raced through to the end and achievement unlocked.

I have only ever completed this mission once before on normal mode. By loading the last checkpoint on Casual difficulty I got the achievement.

I never cleared my cache or did anything else.

The only other explanation for this other than this little "cheat" working is that the game saves your times for each checkpoint of a level and adds your time together and I did the final checkpoint slowly on my first playthrough.

Thought I would let you know. I have not tested any other levels yet - so my bad if that upsets anyone.

Does this not work for Anvil? Its worked on every level I've tried and this is THREE times now it didn't unlock for Anvil...

I ended up doing it legit, with three minutes left. Loading it from Secure Guard Post 2 did not seem to work.

Also, you can load the last level, History Repeats, at the "Secure Bridges" Checkpoint and unlock this achievement.
