I'm sorry, I just don't see how long length means hard. Like Seriously 2.0 in Gears 2, it's not hard at all, you just boost it in the SP. It takes a long time, but insanely easy to do.

Difficulty does not effect achievements.
Start the main missions, make sure to subvert every one of them. After each main mission, look for side missions to become available. Check the weapon shop for convoys to hit, cell towers for jobs, etc... Each side has 3 main missions per area, if I remember correctly. Make sure you've found all your buddies and done all cell tower and convoy missions before doing the 6th main mission in the North. Don't worry about meds, you will get the missions to get new meds as you need to, it's related to main missions, so check your map after every one for a marker on the church telling you there's another med mission available.
I haven't played this game since the 2nd week it was out, so if I'm a little off, I apologize. Just make sure you fully read the guide first, so you know what you have to do, you don't wanna have to replay this game, to do all the SP achievements it'll probably take 30-40 hours. Those diamond cases suck ass.

Either that or the host decides to boot someone for no reason. Who the hell thought giving the host the power of God in a Ranked match was a good idea should be shot.

So you think Far Cry 2 is easy to get 1000 in... so you think it could go on the easy 1000 list... so you would recommend someone to go rent it, because they can "easily" finish it.

Hahahaha.

A game that takes 400 hours, whether or not those 400 hours require skill, is much more difficult than one that takes 10 hours but with skill. You can learn to beat a challenging game in far less than 400 hours.

Skill is relative.

I suck at avatar. I find it takes incredible skill to get the combo multiplier that high. I tried my best and could only get the first achievement. Is avatar a more difficult 1000 than Far Cry 2?

"Difficulty" includes both skill and time required.

When you get a main mission, a minute or 2 after it starts (Red circle), you'll get a phone call from a buddy. Go to him/her (Blue circle) and do their mission instead of the main one. You'll still do the main one, but you'll do extra for a buddy. This is subverting.

For the 'Third Faction' achievement do the buddies have to survive or as long as you picked them up before they died/disappeared does it count?

EDIT: Just seen it in the guide. The answer is no they don't.

As far as I remember, yes. I know there's 6 buddies and the 8 tapes, well 9.
The cases... I would drive around each sector, check you map in each one and make sure it says you got all the cases in each sector. I can't remember how many cases there are in the North and South.

ok i used this guide and i have few questions

is there a buddy location map with their respective names?
what can u miss and or not in order to earn the diamonds achievement?
(i know about the tower cell glitch)
i m supposed to start south district and i have 14/33 main missions 5/12 buddy missions 15/40 subvert missions 3 rebel missions done and 382 diamonds since u guys are smart could you put the exact /correct mission stats we need to have before we are about to go south district?

guides looks good but it seems to need some fix like the 112 north district diamond hidden by the -ZOOM from paint and if i do remember correctly i remember i found one that actually wasnt pointed in the map but it was days ago so i dont remember exactly which one

i think the best thing would be a walktrough achievements guide so everyones happy!!!! thx for all the efforts and no this game is easy as hell!!

Ok, where EXACTLY is the crashed plane? I went to the very north part of the middle north section of the north territory and I searched and couldn't find it.

Also, in the square km section in the north with Pala in it (the middle section of the north territory), 13 diamond cases are present. On your pictures some diamonds on the map are orange, explanation? I tallied 12 diamonds on your map that were normal blue, and on my map in-game I have 13 already, but one of my thirteen was a case that you get after finishing the very first mission from Mike's Bar. Any help?

Thanks

Yeah I remember one diamond that wasn't on the map, I think it was located at the Fresh Fish location.


Here is a map of where the plane crash buddy is http://img114.imageshack.us/my.php?i...ckbuddygb7.jpg


On a different note, this guide is horrible, it needs to be rewritten, first of it is full of "I think this and that", "I'll get back to this" and the starting words should express much better how to start the game, I had no idea that the place you start was north, and there is a south location, I thought it was north and south on the map ect. And there should be a much better indication of when it's safe to go south.

I just checked the guide in the thread, and it's a lot better than the one that's on the achievement guide. I still would have wanted more info on when to go south, not just do all x, find all x, find how many x please...


I got one diamond left now, it's the one fairly southwest on the southwest part of the South map, right over the text for W-something Village, it's on a slight hill on a snipertower with a ladder laying on the ground right under. I can't get up there, any ideas?

there are ways to put achievements on your account without playing the game. one of which is to use a hex editor on a new profile. problem is it is easy for microsoft to detect and can result in your score getting reset from xbox and banned. last time i checked, there were roughly 10 people with 1000/1000 for this game. looking at some of there profiles you can see some of there games they never even played online.

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!!

This isn't true. I've been wandering around getting diamonds and just normal fighting and Malaria has been coming over me at random times.

Hey b1ues, this might be nitpicky, but to me this guide would be 200% better if you would read through it and correct your grammar mistakes. In many instances you have "is" when it should be "are," and there are also some very easy words that aren't spelled right. Other than that, this guide is solid. I already know I'm never going to get "Warlord" and "Soldier of Misfortune," that would take FOREVER.
