Just so everyone is aware, I downloaded the update for Frontlines the other day and then went ahead and attempted to get all the stopwatch achievements.

THIS TRICK WORKS!

What you need to do is determine which of the checkpoints is the last one before the second-half of the mission begins. Updating your game does not have any bearings on whether it blocks you from obtaining this achievement through this trick. Chances are you're going too slowly or constantly getting killed. It's easy as hell on normal, even easier on casual. Take your time and just go straight for the checkpoints on each section of the level - time will fly. I managed to get four stop-watch achievements in less than an hour.

I can also confirm this works, glad I didn't have to mess with the three waves of tanks again while trying this on the fourth mission.

easier than doing the whole mission.
So am i right in thinking that if i load the checkpoint before the halfway mark i can complete the level and get the stopwatch achievement? so i have to basically do half the mission instead?

Well its a lil more than half actually since you need to clear the objective that takes place before the halfway mark, Still it skips you past an objective or two depending on the level and that saves a good amount of time allowin you to take it a lil more easy on the second half of the level.

Bofur is right. Seems to not work for Anvil. I did it also 3 times.
Then I did the full mission and I used a chrono to see how much time I took and I can tell you the game is quite gentil with us ) It can last a little bit longer and you'll still have the achievement unlocked.
I took 25'50'' for Anvil and more than 28' for Graveyard and the achievemnts still unlocked. For Graveyard I know I could have used the trick, but I was just having a round to make me remember the map. I definitely didn't expect it.

I can confirm that loading checkpoint 2 (Capture Bridges) on the History Repeats mission will net the stopwatch achievement. Finished in 30 minutes. 10 minutes under the required time.

Also, you can load the last level, History Repeats, at the "Secure Bridges" Checkpoint and unlock this achievement.
This is happening to me as well. I load the check point and coplete the level in 15 minuts well under the 25 minutes needed. I guess i will just have to do this the real way.

I also could not get this to work. Watch a timer and you should be fine. For me the most difficult ones were Anvil and History Repeats.

On History Repeats start the chapter by loading "capture bridges"
you'll beat the chapter in like 31 minutes and you'll get the achievement. That's how I got it.

That one doesn't work, i've tried it twice now and completed it with 15 minutes to spare each time.

I usually die once doing the tank bit but that shouldn't effect a speed achievement.

Edit: I'm sure some of these are glitched and only unlock when they feel liek it, i've started from the beginning and i don't unlock either the timed one or the ones for not getting killed, even though i don't die and i'm doing it within a certain time.

I can confirm that it does work, since this was the 1st one that I tried using this guide. VERY helpful information.

i am not sure on this one. some levels work, some dont. my guess is that the game saves the fastest time for each checkpoint within the level individually and puts them together for the fastest overall time. so if you rush through anvil for example, but get a third timer running during the last checkpoint and dont make the time, i think its enough to play the last part again to unlock the achievement. if you spent too much time in the level before the last checkpoint, youll have to replay more checkpoints...

Looks like this one may have now been patched, unfortunately.

Just tried Anvil twice loading from the second checkpoint. I even timed myself second time around to make sure, and I did it in 19 minutes with no achievement..


--EDIT--
Just did a timed run from the beginning of the level in 23 minutes and the achievement popped.

The first level worked using this method but I had to do level 2 (Captains of Industry) from the beginning. The achievement wouldn't pop starting from the second checkpoint.

Graveyard - Stopwatch (4th mission) works fine if you load up the second checkpoint and miss those stupid tanks.

Going to try Anvil (3rd mission) next. Got through ok without being killed but need to get my timing sorted.

PS These are being done after the latest update.

Darkness Falls and Captains of the Industry worked great as the guide instructs. Anvil is not working. I literally ran through the level…using the shotty they provide before the load screen. I then took out the next two checkpoints immediately once you start out with the Heavy Machine Gun. Waiting the approx 10 minutes it takes to complete the level.

EDIT: tried Anvil again and no such luck. So I went at it full boar legit. Only took one time. Basically ran through the level hard charging from cover to cover using a lot of grenades. Also got Graveyard using the glitch.

Anvil is very wierd. This trick didn't work for me on Anvil or History Repeats but when I went back and done anvil it took me 27 minutes and it unlocked...

EDIT: Just got History Repeats legit with 11 minutes to spare, now have the full 1000

To back up those that have already stated it before, the "cheat" to unlock the stopwatch achievements by just loading the very end of every chapter does work. I beat the game and got all but the first and last level legit, and then (obviously) loaded the last parts of those two levels. They popped once I blew the door, and killed the people at the square. I would say if it isn't working for you, it is because the update fixed it, seeing as my internet is busted atm, and I didn't update the game.

Just to clarify, this trick seemed to work for all levels apart from "Anvil" and "History Repeats".

Anvil can be a little tricky to do in under 25 minutes, you just have to rush like crazy - and I'd definately recommend doing it on Casual. History Repeats is rather easy to do un under 40 minutes, you should have no trouble running through on Casual - I did it with at least 10 or even 15 minutes to spare.

Pardon my Noobishness, but shouldn't someone add this information to the "Achievement Guide" ?!?

I only looked into it because i was having trouble with the "Mountain King & History Repeats Stopwatch" 'chievers...
Seems it would have saved me and countless others some unwanted frustrations ?!?

Regardless, thanks for the tip, works like a charm !!!
