Achievement Guide

Didn't see one so id thought id start one Please no one complain that theres not alot here. Instead of moaning please help out. This is only a work in Process.

When i describe missions it is the mission number in the game stats. (main missions unless stated)

Warning: This guide may well contain spoilers, ill try to keep them down as much as can but not always possible.

Introduction

This game as a total of 49 achievements with a score of 1000GS. All achievements can be gotten in one play through if you dont get any glitches and if you make sure you do everything in the North before going into the south, and making sure you finished everything before the last mission. 14 achievements you are only able to get through online play. All others need to be collected in story mode.

Summary
Achievement Summary

- Estimated achievement difficulty:6/10
- Offline: 34 (640)
- Online: 14 (340)
- Approximate time for 1000 GS: 100 - 130 hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed for completion: 1
- Number of missable achievements: 19
- Glitched achievements: Yes
- Do cheat codes disable achievements: No cheat codes available

No matter how good you are at games this will take you a long time to do as the online achievements can take an age to collect. Mainly the ranking up to level 30 (Warlord) and upgrading all weapons (Soldier of Misfortune) are the two that take the time.

Glitches

Where to start there are quite a few glitches in this game but the main one which courses people to miss between 3-5 achievements is the Cell Tower missions. This is because when doing a cell tower mission you have to kill a selected target. This target however some times gets away but you still get a mission complete. This means you don't not get the correct number of Diamond you should have so this causes you to miss all diamond and cell tower related achievements.

How to fix this.

When doing a cell tower mission be sure to save before starting the mission. Make sure you get the diamonds when finishing this mission if you do not get the diamonds. Reload your save and try again.

Playthrough One.

You can get all the achievements in one playthrough as long as you get them in the correct order and get the north achievements before heading to the south.

This is the order that i would try to do things before moving on with missions.

North
1. Find all save houses in the North
2. Hit all weapons convoys
3. Save all Buddies in the North
4. Find all Diamonds (can do them all at once at the end but its easier)
5. Find all Jackal Logs (can do them all at once at the end but its easier)
6. Do all the Cell Tower Missions. (Make sure to get diamonds)
7. Start the story missions (Make sure you subvert all missions and do 1 mission for both sides)

South
1. Find all save houses in the South
2. Hit all weapons convoys
3. Save all Buddies in the South
4. Find all Diamonds (can do them all at once at the end but its easier)
5. Find all Jackal Logs (can do them all at once at the end but its easier)
6. Do all the Cell Tower Missions. (Make sure to get diamonds)
7. Start the story missions (Make sure you subvert all missions and do 1 mission for both sides) Also save before the last mission if your unsure when that it save around 90% and get all achievements that you may have missed. You cant go back.

Make sure to save before finishing the game. YOU CANT GO BACK TO FINISH THINGS YOU HAVE MISSED!!

Guide

Story Related Achievements that can't be missed.

On the run 10
Escape the Town.

"Story Related"

After the cut scene at the the start of the game you need to try and escape from the town. The quickest and easiest way to get this is to die. You then get picked up and driven out of town.

Stickin' it to the man 10
Kill a Faction Captain in Leboa-Sako - the Northern Territory.

"Story Related"

You will unlock this by killing any faction leader. The first chance you will have to get this is a mission for the UFFL you need to go Goka Falls and kill Prosper Kouasso.


Dawa ya moto ni moto 20
Break the ceasefire and reignite the conflict.

"Story related"

You get this after you do the first prober mission in the South Territory when you have to protect the drug boat. Successfully keep the boat intact until you reach the port to unlock this achievement.


Prison escape 20
Escape torture at the old slave outpost.

"Story Related"

Whilst in the Southern District, either the APR or the UFLL (UFLL for me) will offer you a mission which is the easiest, as of late. They will ask you to take a Letter to a man, and collect the diamonds while you're there. Whilst leaving the HQ, one of your Buddies will ask you to bring the Diamonds with you to the Airport to meet him.
I slowly sneaked into the village where your target man is. Things were extremely calm, though. I don't you'll be shot on sight, if anyone is there. Close to the building the man is in, is a Fire. I didnt create this, so I'm gathering something has gone down here. The following scene suggests this.

You go up the Ladder to find your Man dead on the floor. Your Objective is completed, and the new assignment is to take the Briefcase of Diamonds. That's simple, they're in front of you. As you pick up the briefcase, a knife flies up in front of you. It's The Jackal. You're third encounter has begun. He has his knife up to your throat. He seems a lot less friendly than your last encounter with him. He recognises you, and he harps on about the Factions merging, and how people will think You have killed this man. He takes your Diamond Briefcase, and before leaving, he kicks you in the face to knock you out.

You wake up in a Prison cell. A man calls for you, and tells you to come to the Wall (to your right of the cell door). He talks to you about the Factions. Shortly after, a Prison Guard starts harrassing him, and takes him away. You'll notice the Wall has many cracks within it. It's weak. Take a step back, and you'll be able to press Y to kick the Wall in. As you climb through, you find a Machete and a pot of Tablets for your Malaria. There's a Save Box on the Wall. The Cell Door has been left open, so you can escape. Travel through some empty corridors and you'll go up some stairs. To your Left down that Tunnel is an open area in the Prison, which will be full of Mercenaries. From this view you can see that it looks very much like the Fort, or Last Bastion. Up ahead is an Open Gate. This is the simplest way out. You have your map, which shows you a target you need to reach to have fully escaped the Prison. It's just up the road, but watch for Mercenaries and vehicles. Stick to the vegetation on the Left of the road and you should be fine. Once you reach the destination point, you're free. Crouching is important in that part. Or else you could make your life alot worse.

Last man standing 30
Wipe out the senior leadership of both Factions and determine who will be the new Warlords.

"Story related"

Heart of Darkness 40
Enter the Heart of Darkness.

"Story Related"

The horror... the horror... 40
Resolve your conflict with the Jackal to facilitate the exodus.

"Story Related"

After tackling the Heart of Darkness, and completing both of The Jackal's original missions (to achieve the Diamonds from the Landing Zone, and kill both Faction Warlords), you will be ordered to rendezvous at The Jackal's Hut. Here, The Jackal gives you a debrief on the next Mission. You can either take a Car Battery to activate a Bomb. This results in your destruction, but the rocks will block the Border of the Country.

Or you can take the Diamonds to the Border, bribe the Post Guards to allow you to leave, and then put a Bullet through your head. The Jackal tells you that you'll both die in the process of killing this War. Once you've completed either of these paths, you'll complete the Story Mode and unlock this achievement.


Down but not out 10
Escape to Bowa-Seko - the Southern Territory.

"Story related"

After you have picked the Church or your buddies in the final mission of the North Territory. You will have to do one mission in the desert. When this is done you are told to meet Voorheer in Sefapane. Which is in the South Territory you will then get this achievement.

Pulitzer material 20
Turn over all of the Jackal's audio logs to the Journalist

It might be helpful to note that there are actually 9 tapes in the North, one is automatically given to you. The numbering is a bit off and can mislead a few people causing confusion. This should be added to the guide for future reference.

North
1 00. Infamy
2 01. Smuggling
3 02. Circulation
4 03. Economics
5 04. Home
6 05. Rat-Catcher
7 06. Career Counseling
8 07. Stability
9 08. The Humanist

South
10 09. Stealing Boots
11 10. Gluten-Free
12 11. Necessary Evil
13 12. Lion's Share
14 13. Unrecognizable
15 14. Gutshot
16 15. No Sense
17 16. Numbers

Due to a patch that was released for the Save glitch in Far Cry 2, it causes the Jackal Tapes to not appear in the menu after you've collected Stealing Boots. Once you've collected all tapes in the North and then travel South, the only tape you will hear is 09. Stealing Boots. If you check under the Jackal Tapes section of the menu, you won't see any tapes past this point. Not to worry though! The game still keeps track of all the tapes you've collected. Make sure you mark the tapes off in the South as you collect them. Once you're sure you've collected all the tapes, either head to the Marina bar in the South or back to Mike's bar in the North. The journalist will be waiting for you at either location.

Jackal tape below marked in red.

Thanks to Vultu for the heads on this achievement

Mapper 10
Create a map and get it validated in all game modes

Start the map editor. Once you're in, hit the Start button and go to "Validation". Look under each game type, there will be a list of things you need on your map with check boxes. Add the things you need, working your way though until you get all check boxes checked. If you see any under "Map" that are blank and say something isn't clear, it means you put that thing in a place it can't be, ie spawn point. Once all boxes are checked, Save your map and the achievement is yours.


Adventurer 20
Download and rate 25 usermaps

From the Main Menu go to "Map Community" then "Download New Maps". Download 25 different maps. Once done, go back to the Main Menu and to "Multiplayer" then "Player Match" the "Create Match" then highlight "Map Cycle" and hit A. Add the first 15 of the 25 maps you downloaded into the cycle by highlighting them and pressing A (you can only add up to 15 at a time). Set "Private Slot" to the same number as "Maximum Players" is set at. Then "Launch Match". Select "Force Launch" when available or "Ready". Once the map loads, check it out a little, then hit Start and go to "Cancel Match".
On the Summary screen, notice it says to hit Y to rate. So hit Y and give your rating. Once the Lobby comes back up you'll be on the next map in line. Repeat. Took me about an hour, maybe an hour and a half.



Some Extra Tips that might help.


1. Buddies go missing for no reason(story related)

2. Buddies can all live and all die it doesn't matter for the achievements as long as you once during the game find all of them, and of course subvert 12 missions 6 south 6 north

3. You guys may think that the game is kinda confusing but all your questions will be answered at the end of the story

4.If you used morphine on your buddy 3 times and it didn't work...its because he or she got wounded twice.....the first time they fall u can save them....the second you cant!!

5. You can only do underground missions when you are close to running out of pills....you only get close to running out of pills when you do story related missions....so if you wanna get diamonds, tapes and other things not related to story dont worry....malaria wont bother you!!

6. Try to do all non-story related achievements when you reach exactly 73% of story....if you do a story mission from there....you wont be able to go back to cell phone tower and other side missions!!



Thanks to Cra, DemonI81, PTPetisco, Nuke Dukem, oO ThrissY and Ell365 for helping

For "Best Laid Plans" simply follow the Blue objective marker and complete the mission that way.

same applies for the other main missions for ruthless and cold blooded.


...into the fire.
go up to your buddy press Y select the syricte and press RT

good night sweet prince
go to your buddy, press Y select your sidearm(pistol etc) and press RT

out of the frying pan...
after you've met your second buddy at Mike's start any fight with the locals and "die". your 2nd buddy comes to save you

supply... and ...Demand
after you are told that the tutorial is over, you can visit your local weapon dealer, go up to him and press Y for this side missions. after you blow up the truck or damage it heavily the mission is complete.

Bagman and Messenger
once you run out of medicine, you can accept a mission from the priest to deliver some documents. after you completed the mission the achievement unlocks.

Lineman and Utility Man
after the tutorial you are free to go the a cellular tower(correct me if it is the wrong word) and accomplish the mission given.

Lent a Hand
Return to Mike after the tutorial and your 1st buddy will give you something to do, finish the mission

Weapon Specialist and Weapon Expert
just buy the manual and the bandoliers at the weapon dealer of your trust


updated some achievements

nope what i mean is, you get basicly one achv for the first time you do anything, and another after you've done the rest.

manuals are unlocked after you bought the weapon. the bandoliers maybe unlock after story missions, dunno so far.

Playing both sides...
just finish a mission for each of both factions, unlocks after you finish a mission for the second faction.

Good guide so far(I realize it's a lot of work to do something like this).
But does anyone happen to know if a buddy that is "lost" is gone forever?
I assume that's only if he's actually killed.Is there some way to find a "lost" buddy again?
Because if there isn't I'm pretty much screwed up for the "The third faction" achievement.

This is what I can offer for help.

Mapper
-10G
"Created a map and got it validated in all game modes"
Start the map editor. Once you're in, hit the Start button and go to "Validation". Look under each game type, there will be a list of things you need on your map with check boxes. Add the things you need, working your way though until you get all check boxes checked. If you see any under "Map" that are blank and say something isn't clear, it means you put that thing in a place it can't be, ie spawn point. Once all boxes are checked, Save your map and the achievement is yours.

First Response Team -10G
"Most revives in a single ranked match"
Just stick with your team, staying back a little bit and taking cover. When one drops, run up to them. You'll be prompted to hit Y to revive them.
Just do this more than anyone else in the round. Hitting the Back button will show you the scorecard and how many Revives each person has.

Adventurer -20G
"Downloaded and rated 25 usermaps"
From the Main Menu go to "Map Community" then "Download New Maps". Download 25 different maps. Once done, go back to the Main Menu and to "Multiplayer" then "Player Match" the "Create Match" then highlight "Map Cycle" and hit A. Add the first 15 of the 25 maps you downloaded into the cycle by highlighting them and pressing A (you can only add up to 15 at a time). Set "Private Slot" to the same number as "Maximum Players" is set at. Then "Launch Match". Select "Force Launch" when available or "Ready". Once the map loads, check it out a little, then hit Start and go to "Cancel Match".
On the Summary screen, notice it says to hit Y to rate. So hit Y and give your rating. Once the Lobby comes back up you'll be on the next map in line. Repeat. Took me about an hour, maybe an hour and a half.

Battle Hardened -20G
"Played at least one full round in every Game Mode"
Self Explanatory. Being only 4 Game Modes, you can get this fairly quick. Just make sure you play the entire round and don't quit out.

Upgraded Player -20G
"Upgraded one class 3 times (Ranked Match)"
The earliest you can do this is after reaching Rank 4 (1,200 XP). Just pick a class you like and stick with it, using your Diamond Upgrades each time you rank up for that class. This will also benefit you since you earn hidden XP for Accuracy ("Operation Manual"), Reliability ("Maintenance Manual"), and Ammo Capacity ("Bandolier") for each class.
Remember, these must be Ranked, not Player.

Hired Gun -20G
"Reach Rank 5 (Ranked Match)"
I don't have it yet, but the needed XP for it is 2,100
See "Warlord"

Professional -30G
"Reach Rank 10 (Ranked Match)"
I don't have it yet, but the needed XP for it is 15,000

Mercenary -30G
"Reach Rank 20 (Ranked Match)"
I don't have it yet, but the needed XP for it is 250,000

Warlord -40G
"Achieve Rank 30 (Ranked Match)"
I don't have it yet, but the needed XP for it is 1,500,000
10 XP for killing an opponent.
5 XP for doing it with bullets, with a headshot, with an explosion, with flames, with a vehicle, with a machete, and for executing a downed opponent.
15 XP for reviving a teammate.
You also get XP for capturing and scoring with a diamond and for capturing control points in Uprising or killing the enemy captain.

Two things: Where the red text is you spelled know wrong, and add the achievement pictures to the guide to make it more friendly to the eye.

Funny... the achievement pictures have been there since he started this guide. So critical of spelling and layout, but no input on any of the missing/needed info...

Are achievement guides assigned, or do people seriously rush to pos ton firs,t just so they can get the credit and respect?

Sorry but I think its absolutely ridiculous to post such an unfinished empty achievement guide.

Most of the time an achievement guide is a collective project. Someone takes the responsibility on to update and provide as much info as they can, while taking info that others provide, verify it, and insert it. It's a community effort, the OP just decided he'd spend the extra time that others aren't willing to or can't.

We found the easiest way online is the Pitbull map, deathmatch. One of you who is doing the kills gets in the middle where the turret guns (moutned weapons) are. There are 3 possible spawn points for the one who is going to get killed. The watertower, a down left at a hut like strcutre or by the windmill. Get a sniper and headshot your buddy as much as you can 15 XP. There is an ammo crate nearby. When you weapons starts to jam you could give the joy of killing to you buddy. I got around 500-600 XP/ match if you and your buddy get used to it, you'll sure do more and more each round.

Purchase the manuals and acquire the bandoliers for every weapon

You can buy the manual for each weapon once you have purchased that weapon. Just highlight the weapon and press LB/RB to scroll through.

But im not sure how to get the bandoliers yet.

The Bandoliers appears in the upgrade list to purchase. Just make RB to the other lists, in the computer.
