Aliens: Colonial Marines

Aliens: Colonial Marines Achievements

State of the Badass Art

Complete all Campaign levels on Ultimate Badass difficulty    

If you're able to join random games, you don't have to beat the entire campaign on this difficulty. As long as you join before the end of the mission, you'll receive credit. This means some unlucky person could fight through 90% of the mission and you join for the last 10% and receive credit for beating the mission. (Lucky you!) To see which missions you've completed, select "service record" from the menu and select "records". The first highlighted screen (campaign records) will list all 11 missions with the difficulty you've completed. If the cheevo doesn't unlock, try doing one mission solo (mission 11 is pretty easy) to get it to unlock.

Co-op is easier if you have the opportunity, but watch friendly fire especially flame thrower. Enemies are tougher and do more damage. Revives will help a lot along with good communication for solid teamwork. If going solo, use the parts of the campaign where you have help from NPC's to your advantage. You will also have no "HUD" during this playthrough so ammo and reloading can become tricky. Find co-op partners using THIS THREAD.

This name has nothing to do with Gearbox and/or Borderlands, and everything to do with Hudson's quote from the movie.

@6 you really think that when it is a Ref to Aliens 2. not to mention this achievement/trophy is going to be harder to get cause the Xenomorphs will be stronger and faster and you will be more then likely to hold the fire trigger down a lot of the times or you die so many times you just give up.

This Achievement/trophy is named for the Ref to Movie 2 of Aliens and hardcore fans of Aliens will be playing this on this level

I just hope they don't go with the AvP health system. Three miserable blocks which go down instantly.

@12 They have the same health system, except for they have armor also added in which can absorb acid.

@13 - Thank you for fielding that one for me. You were way more tactful than I would have been.

@15 - Great. Armor that absorbs acid for one second and then you die. Can't wait. I just hope now that we have checkpoints. None of this no checkpoint Nightmare BS.

Does anyone know if the achievement disables on coop because it would be a lot easier with a few friends.

If this can be done on coop then I'm sure it won't be to bad. (Hopefully)

This can be done solo. Its probably quicker co-op, but I just finished it on my own. There are a handful of tricky areas, but nothing impossible for sure.

Raven fight is slaughtering me. Sometimes, the other aliens circling are killing me before I even engage the raven alien. How do I keep the smaller ones off me for this fight?

Just died in the power loader without taking a single hit from the raven alien. WTF?

Comment #33 by FPSnoob2012
Tuesday, February 18, 2014 @ 02:12:11 AM

Twice I was pummeling the raven alien in the corner and died from the attacks of the other aliens. Now the smaller aliens have killed me as I chase the raven alien. AI with intelligence would be great.
Worst game I've ever played.

I need this achievement. I've completed the entire game on ultimate badass except for one mission: the raven. I can't seem to beat the raven while in the power loader at the end of the mission. I'm willing to help with other achievements in return...

The best way to get this achievement is to run through it with 3 other players it makes it very easy
