Awnsering the questions!!

i finished the game yesterday and realized after looking at this thread, that i did alot of crap....so i kinda gave up on achivements....for the first time in one of my games!(except that shit GRAW) anyway.....I can help u guys with yours!!

NO SPOILERS!!

1-buddies go missing for no reason(story related)

2-the buddies can all live....all die....it doesnt 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 awnsered at the end of the story

4-if you used mmorphine on your buddy 3 times and it didnt 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 exacly 73% of story....if you do a story mission from there....you wont be able to go back to cellphone tower and other side missions!!

well i hope this helps!!

Some things I'd like to add.Sorry if any of this has already been mentioned.

"Investigative Reporter"/"Pullitzer Material"
There are 17 of the Jackal Tapes overall,you only have to find 16,the first one(numbered 00) will be given to you when you reach Mike's for the first time.
Their locations can be found on the maps where the diamond locations are.
(8 in the south,8 in the north)

"Messenger Achievement :
Since you can only do underground missions when you're running low on pills and that only happens while completing story missions,the Achievement will propably unlock once you have done enough to reach the end of the game without running out of pills, or in other words when you won't need any more until finishing the game(and I think that's about 5).

"The third faction"
I can confirm that you only need to rescue them from where they are being held captive in the first place(11 total).
They don't need to survive(which is even unavoidable at one point in the game) and you don't need to do any of the misions they give you.
Buddies :
6 in the North :
-The first on you free during the tutorial.
-2 others will be added automatically
-You can free another one either at the Lumber camp,the Slaughter House or the Cock Fights.Go to the location you haven't been to during the Tutorial.
-One more is near a downed plane at the locaion that was posted earlier in this thread
-The last one you will free at fresh fish,after you have been told about that by one of the doormen in pala.

5 in the south:
-the first one will be the captain of the boat you escort to Port Selao.
-The second one is the one you meet at the clinic during the "Introduction to the south"
-A third one will join automatically
-another one is locked up at the Brewery in the very south of the area
-The final buddy you'll come across while proceeding through the story,again one of the doormen will hint you at that.

This one is at Sediko. This one and the one at the Brewery can be obtained as soon as the intro missions are over. I just got to the south, did the intro missions (the first 3 join you during these missions) and the first thing I did was went and got these 2 buddies. Achievement unlocked. I even let one die early in the north.

EDIT: Sediko is in the North Sector (middle/north most square). Brewery is in the South Sector (middle/south most square).

im stuck with getting this one diamond on the south map. When you enter the central 1sqk map (where the town is where the main missions are) the diamond is on a rock on the river. I think you haveto use the handglider that is around the rivers bend on the otherside of the big hill (mountain thingy). Is this how you are suposed to get the diamond or is there an easier way?

I hope its clear enough for you to know which one im on about but i dont know how to add a pic of the diamonds location to the message so if someone could tell me how to do that as well it would be realy helpful.
Someone please help thank you.

Ok,so you can get them anytime.I thought this only works once you are being told about them.
I must admit I haven't played the game many different times,only twice.
And I think now it's official that whether you're buddies are dead or alive doesn't matter as long as you have a total of 11.

And a little question about the "Safari Tour" Achievement :
Do you have to play all maps in the same game mode,or even every map in every game mode?
Since I have completed one game on each map and didn't get the achievement.

Nope, you can get them as soon as you want. Just like the 3 in the North, (plane wreck, and 2 locked up).

No idea. I've been reading that the online achievements seem to be even more buggy than the single player ones.

For the buddy at Sediko,I've finished the intro missions and have unlocked the convoy,radio mast missions etc but when I went and cleared out Sediko,there is no buddy there.I "think" I can see the hut he/she is kept in by the slide lock on the front but it is not openable and there is no person inside.Do I need to do a few more missions? This is my last buddy and I'll scream if I can't rescue them for some reason.

The hut is in the back, it's a big one on top of a hill. When you go in you can not use weapons, this is how you'll know you're in the right hut. Once in, there's a ladder to climb up. Open the door up there and there's your buddy.
(I missed the ladder, wandered around for 20 mins going "WTF!!!!" then found it.)

Regarding the messenger achievement, do I have to get a certain amount of missions on the north and then the south? Or can I get the remaining ones in the south?

Cheers for the info DemonI81 I totally kept missing that ladder.Doh.

Regarding the underground missions,I think I glitched this achievement.I unlocked it after doing 3 underground missions before I even hit the second area.I'm pretty sure this wasn't meant to happen.This happen to anyone else?

I've got 23 hours in, 50% done and 400somethingGS. So, long. Hard, no. Annoying, yes. The entire game is annoying. It felt like it should've been over after the North section, now all the same crap all over again in the South, but more mountains and stuff blocking you from taking short cuts, actually forcing you to drive further than you'd have to by far in a lot of parts, more people driving around shooting me.
I'm beginning to dislike this game.

4 in the north.
4 in the south.
Yes, just look on your map, there's a few spread throughout each area.

Dr Livingston, I presume 20
Enter every 1 square kilometer map region of the world.

This is just entering each Sector. There's 19 in all, 9 in the North, 9 in the South, and the 1 middle one. I just got it after entering the final sector I hadn't been to.

For the Southern buddies, #5 is in Sediko. This buddy can also be gotten without being told to. According to the strategy guide, you're not always sent after the buddies the UFLL or APR send you for. To be safe it's best to go without being told for the final 3 in the North and the final 2 in the South.

You can do them all from 1 or go to different ones. Doesn't matter. It's the same with the Cell Tower missions.

As this game is one big, repetitive glitch, it probably is.
I had a guy inside a boulder shooting out at me earlier. I couldn't kill him.
A guy in Sediko started shooting a Mac 10 at me and continued to do so for, literally, I swear I'm totally serious, 5 mins. I sat in a building where I could see him and he was just aiming at the building firing non-stop for 5 mins. Then I killed him.
So many other things too.... Oh well, 2-3 days and I'll be totally done with the single player. I doubt I'll really play online. Fallout 3 is sitting here waiting for me and I've got GoW2 and CoD:WaW both preordered and paid off.

The game is? It's been pissing me off since I got 3 hours in. Even more so now that I'm in the south and they've restricted movement to the road only much more than they did in the north.

Hi guys, just wondering if the journalist guy who gives the mission for the jackal recordings counts as a buddy.

It says I have 6 buddys so far in my log, just making sure before I progress to the next area.

Thanks in advance.

@ NukeDukem: I'm pretty sure you can't.

@ johnjoe: No, the journalist doesn't count as a buddy.
