This game is fairly easy to get the majority of the points in, but for the full 1000 you will need to invest a significant amount of time online to get "Retirement Savings Plan". The single player is pretty straightforward though and playing in co-op with a friend makes your life a lot easier.

Be aware that one of the achievements (Starting a Riot) does require you to play in human co-op, as the A.I. will never pick up the riot shield for you.

Introduction:
Army of Two has 1000 points available with the retail game. You will have to play the game at least twice, as the Elite difficulty will not unlock until you complete the game for the first time. You can bypass this by playing online co-op with a friend who has accessed Elite difficulty already. Also, it is impossible to get all of the weapons kills in just one play-through as there simply are not enough enemies. You can just select individual levels in order to rack up the kills, overkills etc achievements though. Online is a different story as you will have to rack up $1 billion which is rather time consuming.

Step #1: Playthrough on Normal
Play through the game and focus on using each weapon until you have the required number of kills with it, then switch to another. Save all of your money to buy the achievement specific guns and use a guide to locate all of the briefcases on each level. It would be wise to do this difficulty with the A.I. as your partner for the achievement as they are less helpful on the highest difficulty.

Step #2: Play-through on Elite
Complete the game again on Elite; work on any kill achievements you are missing. Do this in co-op with a friend so you can get the Riot Shield achievement too, plus they will be much better help than the A.I.

Step #3: Clean-up
After finishing the game twice, go back and mop up anything you missed, which will probably be the kills achievements. You can just level select for any achievements you are missing here.

Step #4: Online
For online, I would recommend finding three boosting partners as otherwise you are looking at hundreds of hours of legit play. Assuming you have three people, then go and take turns to get all the specific achievements and blow up the required number of barrels. Do not kill each other or buy any other weapons except the pack needed for an achievement and you will pick up pretty much everything. Once these are cleared up you will need to start playing twenty minute Bounties games in Afghanistan, taking it in turns for each team to do major and minor objectives. This will net both sides a large amount of money. Keep this up all the way to $1 billion.

NOTE: The online leaderboards for money reset every now and then, but do not panic! Your money earned up to that point will still be counted. The achievement willl still pop when your cumulative total is correct rather than it having to say $1 billion on the boards.

Conclusion:
The single player is pretty much a walk in the park, though some achievements can be a pain without a human partner. The online mode is a lot more troublesome, especially without boosting, and will require a lot of time and effort. I would suggest getting a dedicated team of people before even attempting the full 1000.

Elite PMC50
Complete all missions as a Professional. 

Professional only unlocks after beating the game at least once on either Recruit or Contractor difficulty. Enemies hit harder and there's much less time for your partner to revive you when you are down.

NOTE: You can go to Mission Select and play each mission on Professional out of order and it will still unlock.

Tips:

  • All Primary Weapons unlock after your first playthrough, so save your money for upgrading the firepower of your favorite guns. The Dao-X kills most enemies with 2 shots and also knocks down even heavy armored guards at mid to close range.
  • Play slow and clear out all enemies before advancing (the majority of the the enemies in every area are finite, so you will eventually kill all of them).
  • You can unlock this with either the AI or a co-op partner.
My Virtual Friend35
Complete all missions with the Partner AI. 

Complete all 6 missions with the AI as your partner on any difficulty.

Say Hello to my Little Friends45
Purchase the MP7, M134, DAO-X Protecta, MGL MK-X, and the M107 Light Fifty. 

After completing the game on any difficulty, all primary weapons are unlocked, so you can save money on 3 of the 5 guns (M134, DAO-X and MGL MK-X). Just purchase the remaining two guns (MP7 under 'Secondary Weapons' and M107 Light Fifty under 'Special Weapons') to get the achievement.

OR

Complete the game on Professional (see "Elite PMC") to unlock every weapon and the achievement.

Man of Many Masks50
Purchase every mask variant. 

You will need $110,000 for this achievement. Purchase all masks for one character to get this. Make sure you have enough to buy all the masks, and once the achievement unlocks, power off your 360, and boot the game up again. You will have both the achievement and your money intact.

If I Were a Rich Man40
Earn one million dollars in total over the course of campaign mode. 

This can be earned throughout the course of 3+ playthroughs of the game.

A complete playthrough is worth $395,000 if you collect all briefcases and complete all bonus objectives. Assuming you have already collected all briefcases in the first playthrough, the second time you can only earn a maximum of $288,500. 3 playthroughs will therefore net you $972,000. You can spend money you earn as the game tracks your total earned, and not what you currently have.

Note: Objective rewards are the same in any difficulty.

Most of the sub-objectives are pretty straightforward except for one in China where you are asked to take down the first Chinook. Preparation is needed beforehand.

You need either the RPG or Stinger (FIM92). I recommend the Stinger because despite the damage chart, it does more damage than the RPG (2 shots to take down the Chinook instead of 3 RPGs), it comes with 3 ammo by default, and it has lock on. The only con is that it cost nearly 5x more.

Once you dock at the dam, enter mid-mission shopping if you haven't already, and equip/buy the Stinger ($42,500). Throw the first control switch and clear out all the enemies first before moving the hovercraft in. After climbing up the ladder, clear out any remaining enemies again. Once you throw the second control switch, the Chinook comes flying in across the dam. Lock on and take it down with 2 missiles before it flies off.

OR

Go to Mission Select once you have completed the game and choose level China and complete the first objective. Blow up the bridge the convoy is passing over, run back to the hovercraft at the bottom to trigger the checkpoint (or else the money won't be credited), and then quit the game. It takes less than 2 minutes and it's worth $30,000. You can rinse and repeat untill you get 1 million.

Fear is The Mind Killer45
Spend 1 minute straight at full Aggro. 

You can get this at the first turret at the game's tutorial area in Somalia. You have unlimited bullets, so just hide behind cover at the turret and blind fire untill you get the achievement.

Starting a Riot30
Kill 50 enemies total in Co-op Riot Shield. 

This is the only single player campaign achievement that can not be gotten without a second controller/human partner. You have to be the one behind doing the shooting while your partner holds the Riot Shield to get this. I recommend doing it on Mission 2, Afghanistan on Casual difficulty. There is a part in the level where you are in some corridors filled with gas. There's a riot shield right outside the lift you come out from. Have one player pick up the riot shield and one behind doing all the shooting. Take the left path and circle clockwise. You can easily get at least 12 kills before the shield breaks. Once it breaks, restart from checkpoint and you will be outside the lift again. Do this 4-5 times to get this achievement.

Two Eyes are Better Than One35
Kill 5 enemies total using Co-op Snipe. (1) 

This can be done as early as Somalia. After killing Mo'Alim, you are asked to clear out the street so the chopper can land. Clyde will hint to you that you should use Co-op snipe to take out the gas tank; don't do this! Get into a good position near the back of the street, enter co-op snipe, and take out 5 guards to get the achievement. Do not press to cancel out of it as you cannot enter back into Co-op snipe mode after that.

Seven-six-two Millimeter20
Kill 250 enemies total using Assault Rifles. 

Assault Rifles:

  • S-System
  • HK 36
  • AK-47
  • AUG
  • FELIN-2C


These achievements will be earned throughtout the course of the game if you take out a majority of the enemies. Switch to another Primary/Secondary weapon once you have gotten it so that you can start raking up kills for another gun. Kills online also count towards these achievements (whether be it AI or player kills).

For the Assault Rifle, Handguns, and Sniper Rifles achievements, a good place to get them is the final training area of the first mission (Somalia). Ask your partner to advance ahead; he will then stop cause there is a proximity mine ahead. Throw a grenade beside him; he will run forward and be injured by the mine. Drag him around the corner and kill the guards that keep spawning. You have unlimited ammo and invulnerability. There will be 120 guards spawning 2 by 2 behind the fence so take them out at your leisure with one of the 3 guns. (This is because you are stuck with stock weapons for the entire first mission). Your AI partner will not die while you are doing this.

You can also get the Submachine gun achievement in the last area in training. Start the the first level Somalia with Salem, select your secondary weapon when the training tutorial prompts you to swap weapons,  get a submachine weapon from Rios, and do the steps outlined in the paragraph above.

This is my Boom Stick!20

  • RPG-7 V1

See "Seven-six-two Millimeter".

Flip You. Flip You For Real20
Kill 50 enemies total using the Melee Attack. 

Run up close to an enemy and press to do a melee attack. Kill 50 for this achievement. In the later stages, enemies with red health bars will not die from one melee attack so be careful. Enemies with blue life bars will still be taken out with one attack. It is hard but possible (unadvisable) to do them on heavy armored guards from behind, but there is no point.

Fission Mailed20
Kill 25 Martyrs by shooting the Bomb Packs on their chests. 

Only Mission 2 (right after the opening parachute sequence you can take out 6-7 martyrs) and Mission 3 (halfway through the mission) have martyrs. Shoot 25 in the chest to make the bomb packs explode. This may not be achievable on 1 playthrough because I believe there are less than 25 martyrs.

If It Bleeds, We Can Kill It30
Kill 25 Heavy Armor enemies. 

If you make sure you kill every heavy armor enemy in your playthrough, you will get this mid-way through the 2nd playthrough. If not, Miami has the highest number of Heavy Armor enemies in the game (about 6), and 4 of them are worth $5,000 each when you kill them.

Note: In Iraq, Ali Youseff is also considered to be a heavy armor enemy.

Field Medic30
Drag and heal your partner 25 times. 

Heal your partner 25 times by holding when he's down. The training mission in Somalia does not count. You can also repeatedly shoot at him to bring him down (if you have the ammo) and then heal him to get this.

Boots on the Ground10
Finish playing a versus ranked match. 

Just as the description says, simply complete a versus ranked match. The shortest duration is 10 minutes, and you need 4 players minimum in order to play a ranked game.

The Devil's in the Details20
Complete 20 minor objectives in a ranked match. 

In an online ranked game, press to open the GPS. Minor objectives are highlighted in yellow. All you have to do is go up to them and press to pick them up. This is best done in a 20 minute match. Some minor objectives can only be reached via step-jump. If you find that none are appearing on your GPS, go complete a main objective and they will respawn eventually. You might want to split with your partner so that one does the main objective while the other collects the minor ones. Both players on that team will get this achievement once it's done.

Surviving The Game25
Complete a ranked match without ever needing to be revived. 

You needs to stay alive for an entire ranked match to get this. If you know the opposing team's players, it will be easier to arrange a truce. You should be fine if you watch out for the AI running amok and sometimes just spawning right behind you. You can get shot to near death, then Feign Death for the entire match, and it will also unlock.

Retirement Savings Plan40
Earn one billion dollars in total in ranked matches. (3) 

Earn $1,000,000,000 in ranked games online. Good teamwork and knowledge of the maps can net each player a few million dollars every 10 minutes. Collecting minor objectives is a good and efficient way to boost your earnings.

Out of Debt15
Heal your partner for the first time. Training does not count. 

See "Field Medic".

One Gun is Enough35
Win a ranked match without purchasing any additional weapons. 

Do not approach any of the green highlighted weapons machine and do not buy weapons in an online match. Out-earn your opponent to win the match.

Beast with Two Fronts20
Kill 50 enemies total in Back-to-Back. 

During the scripted back-to-back sequences, kill 50 enemies. You will get this in the course of 1 playthrough.

Running Man30
Kill 75 enemies while in the stealth mode of Overkill. 

Put your AI partner to aggressive-hold and wait till the aggro meter fills up. The aggro bar on his side will fill to the max, then another darker red bar will fill inside after that. Let him maintain the aggro for another 2 seconds, and press to enter Stealth Overkill mode. Kill 75 enemies to get this. Not firing at all while your partner draws aggro will fill the meter quicker.

L'Abattoir30
Kill 100 enemies while in the power mode of Overkill. 

Put your AI partner to passive mode and keep firing at the enemies. You need to kill at least 1 to max the aggro meter. After maxing it, continue firing to let a darker meter fill inside the red bar. Hold it for 2 seconds once it's filled and press to enter the Power mode of Overkill. All enemies will fire at you during this time but you do double damage. Kill 100 enemies to get this.

Weapon Specialist15
Purchase 3 weapons. 

You can buy any 3 weapons in the mid-mission shopping or just complete the game on any difficulty to get this achievement as all primary weapons will unlock.

Stonewall30
Kill 30 enemies using the Riot Shield melee attack 

While holding the riot shield, ask the AI to hold his position, and advance yourself towards the enemy. Press when close to melee them. Melee 30 to get this achievement.

My Kind of Case!40
Collect all of the information cases in the entire game. 

Afghanistan - 3 briefcase
Iraq - 3 briefcase
Aircraft Carrier- 3 briefcase
China - 3 briefcase
Miami - 2 briefcase

You get a cash reward for picking up the briefcases and they can only be collected once. It disappears in future playthroughs once it is collected. You can check 'Objective' in the pause menu to see how many you have collected for the level. Collection is accumulative, ie, you do not have to collect all in 1 playthrough.

Rough locations:

Afghan
#1: Behind the first M-11 missile is a small uphill path; follow it all the way to the end.
#2: After encountering the first heavy armor guard in the mission (a cutscene plays showing him walking out of a door), kill him and all of the guards, and search the platform area. It's up past a short set of stairs at the back of the platform.
#3: In the area just outside of Brian Hick's cell, go all the way to the back to get this one.

Iraq:
#1: Right before ascending the ladder to take out Ali Youseff's Lieutenant's Helicopter, look around at the bottom of the ladder to find this.
#2: When you are asked to call in the air-strike on the bunker, run to the tent nearest to the huge wall dividing the area (there are some sentry towers near the wall); it's on the side of the tent facing the wall.
#3: In the final area of the mission before meeting Ali Youseff, there are some metal platforms with guard on it. Kill them all, climb up the small steps to the 2nd level of the platform, and then the ladder to the 3rd level to find this.

Aircraft Carrier:
#1: On the main deck of the ship after you land, run towards behind control tower, and then to the right to find this on a platform on the side of the ship.
#2: In one of the hangars, you have to operate one of the planes to blow through a door (a heavy armored guard appears once the door is blown). Search around the wall closest to the door. It's behind some missiles.
#3: In the final hangar, after activating the missiles to sink the ship, look around at the back right of the hangar to find a basketball court. It's behind the basketball hoop closest to the hangar wall.

China:
#1: Once you arrive at the dam, head up the stairs towards the first control panel. Look across the dam to see a similiar structure directly opposite. The briefcase is there.
#2: Once you arrive at the village, co-op snipe the 2 guards and take the right path. At the first house you can enter on the path, head to the 2nd floor to get this.
#3: After the only Back-to-Back sequence in China, do not enter the factory. Search outside near the back outside the factory (it's behind a dump) to find this.

Miami:
#1: After the gates to the luggage area are opened, you have to run to the second floor to operate a control panel. There's an office right before the control panel, search around the back of the office to find this.
#2: On the third floor of SSC tower where you have to jump onto the lift; ignore the lift and keep running forward to the back of the floor to find this. It's directly opposite and across the staircase that you came up on.
