This game is fairly easy to get the majority of the points in but for the full 1250 you will need to download two DLC packs (one of which is free) and also 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.
Army of Two has 1000 points available with the retail game, another 100 through the Challenger pack and a further 150 through the free sponsored DLC. 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. If you have the DLC then you can do the extra two missions as well, use the correct handgun to kill the last boss for an achievement here.
Step #2: Play-through on Elite
Complete the game again on Elite, again working 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 and the DLC ones for destroying objects (only applies to the last two levels) and killing the last boss in under 40 seconds. 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 do the SSC Challenge matches first and take it in 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.
The single player is pretty much a walk in the park, though some of the DLC 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 1250.

|Complete all missions as a Professional.||(14)|
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.
|My Virtual Friend||35|
|Complete all missions with the Partner AI.||(5)|
Complete all 6 missions with the AI as your partner on any difficulty.
|Say Hello to my Little Friends||45|
|Purchase the MP7, M134, DAO-X Protecta, MGL MK-X, and the M107 Light Fifty.||(5)|
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.
|Man of Many Masks||50|
|Purchase every mask variant.||(2)|
You will need $110,000 for this. 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'll have both the achievement and your money intact.
|If I Were a Rich Man||40|
|Earn one million dollars in total over the course of campaign mode.||(9)|
This can be earned throughout the course of 3+ playthroughs of the game.
|Fear is The Mind Killer||45|
|Spend 1 minute straight at full Aggro.||(5)|
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 till you get the achievement.
|Starting a Riot||30|
|Kill 50 enemies total in Co-op Riot Shield.||(7)|
This is the only single player campaign achievement that cannot be gotten without a 2nd 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's 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'll be outside the lift again. Do this 4-5 times to get this achievement.
|Two Eyes are Better Than One||35|
|Kill 5 enemies total using Co-op Snipe.||(5)|
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. Get into a good position near the back of the street and enter co-op snipe. 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.
|Kill 250 enemies total using Assault Rifles.||(3)|
|This is my Boom Stick!||20|
|Kill 250 enemies total using Shotguns.||(3)|
|Spray and Pray||20|
|Kill 250 enemies total using Machine Guns.||(3)|
|Dead Man's Hand||20|
|Kill 150 enemies total using Handguns.||(4)|
|Alright, Who Wants Some?||20|
|Kill 250 enemies total using SMGs.||(3)|
|One Shot. One Kill.||20|
|Kill 100 enemies total using Sniper Rifles.||(3)|
|Big Boom! Big Bada Boom!||20|
|Kill 25 enemies total using RPGs.||(4)|
|Flip You. Flip You For Real||20|
|Kill 50 enemies total using the Melee Attack.||(4)|
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's hard but possible (unadvisable) to do them on heavy armored guards from behind but there's no point.
|Kill 25 Martyrs by shooting the Bomb Packs on their chests.||(4)|
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 cause I believe there are less than 25 martyrs.
|If It Bleeds, We Can Kill It||30|
|Kill 25 Heavy Armor enemies.||(2)|
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 Heavys in the game (about 6) and 4 of them are worth $5,000 each when you kill them.
|Drag and heal your partner 25 times.||(3)|
Heal your partner 25 times by holding the 'A' button when he's down. 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 Ground||10|
|Finish playing a versus ranked match.||(10)|
Just as it says, simply complete a versus ranked match. Shortest duration is 10 minutes and you need 4 players minimum to play a ranked game.
|The Devil's in the Details||20|
|Complete 20 minor objectives in a ranked match.||(10)|
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. 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 Game||25|
|Complete a ranked match without ever needing to be revived.||(4)|
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. Watch out for the AI running amok and sometimes just spawning right behind you and you should be fine. You can get shot to near death and then Feign Death for the entire match and it will also unlock.
|Retirement Savings Plan||40|
|Earn one billion dollars in total in ranked matches.||(44)|
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 Debt||15|
|Heal your partner for the first time. Training does not count.||(1)|
See "Field Medic".
|One Gun is Enough||35|
|Win a ranked match without purchasing any additional weapons.||(5)|

|Beast with Two Fronts||20|
|Kill 50 enemies total in Back-to-Back.||(2)|
During the scripted back-to-back sequences, kill 50 enemies. You will get this in the course of 1 playthrough.
|Kill 75 enemies while in the stealth mode of Overkill.||(3)|
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.
|Kill 100 enemies while in the power mode of Overkill.||(4)|
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.
|Purchase 3 weapons.||(1)|
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.
|Kill 30 enemies using the Riot Shield melee attack||(2)|
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.

|DLC: SSC Challenge Map Pack|
|Price: $7.49 USD Achievements: 4 Points: 100|
|True SSC Challenger||25|
|Win every stage of a ranked three round SSC Challenge match||(19)|
Win every stage of a ranked three round SSC Challenge matchThis is unlocked when you and your partner win 18 out of 18 'stages' in a three round SSC challenge. There are 6 stages a round and the end of each stage is marked with a claxon and confetti going off. This could be done legit pretty easily but can also be done at the same time as when your boosting partners are going for the "SSC Challenge Marksman" achievement.
|Barrel SSC Challenger||25|
|Destroy 500 barrels in ranked SSC Challenge matches||(2)|
This takes the longest out of the 4 DLC achievements simply as you only get a few barrels a stage. The fastest way to do this is to boost it with 3 others on the Warehouse 2 level. There are about 12 barrels right at the end of it that continuous respawn after about 40 seconds. If all four of you run to the end and then take it in turns to blow up the barrels (It only takes one shot as they are so close together) then you should have this in about four hours.
|SSC Challenge Win||25|
|Win a ranked SSC Challenge match||(1)|
If boosting then you should get this with "True SSC Challenger", if not, then you'll get this naturally within a few games.
|SSC Challenge Marksman||25|
|Achieve 75% accuracy at the conclusion of a ranked three round SSC Challenge match||(1)|
This achievement is given for, obviously, hitting 75% of your shots through out a 3 round challenge. (After 3 rounds a conclusion screen will pop up. Its the screen which says red/blue team wins.)
Its virtually impossible to win and get over 75% accuracy so you're pretty much doomed to a loss if you want to get this. Here's what I did. Simply shoot the first target of the level once and then sit there. Do this for all 3 rounds and you're set. Achievement unlocked. The other team will indefinately get 'True SSC Challenger' if you use this technique so make sure you have someone who will return the favour.
|DLC: Veteran Map Pack presented by Pontiac|
|Price: Free Achievements: 6 Points: 150|
|That's right. Who's laughing now||15|
|Buy the 'pack 8' gun pack in a multiplayer ranked match||(4)|
Ok so this is an online one, and despite what most people think, you can do it on any map. Not just the new map. Now for this achievement you have to buy weapon pack 8. Just do bounties on any map because bounties makes the most money and once you have $475,000 you can buy weapon pack 8. Once you have that amount or more head over to any weapon station, select pack 8 and buy it. The achievement will instantly unlock.
|Destroy 300 destructible objects in Mission 7,8||(2)|
You must destroy 300 destructible objects. Very easily done on Level 8. It will take about 1.5-2 playthroughs of level 8 to do this. Almost anything can be destroyed from fire extinguishers to electrical boxes, to chairs to laptops to TV's etc. In the level there will be a massive fight in an office area, there will be tons of offices on the main room and in side rooms with plenty to destroy (laptops, chairs, clocks, TV's) and then there will be another fight in Dalton's main room before the vault where you will be a huge screen with Tyson and Rios' face on it. That huge screen has 48 individual screens which can all be destroyed. There is nothing more to really say for this achievement though, just shoot anything that looks like it can be destroyed. You can also find an area, destroy everything than die and come back and keep rinsing and repeating. But after a maximum of 2 playthroughs of the level destroying everything you see you should have it. I got it in 1 and a half playthroughs. It unlocked on my second playthrough in the massive TV room with Tyson and Rios' face on the screen. Oh yea and also if you are doing co-op you must each destroy 300 objects, you can't get 150 than have your partner get 150, each person must destroy 300.
|I promise to kill you last||30|
|Kill Dalton in less than 40 seconds||(13)|
You must kill Dalton in under 40 seconds. Easiest done on recruit in co-op.
Once the fight with Dalton starts have both ppl use PMK's or if you can't shoot well enough with it then use AK-47's. You must knock him off the bridge within 10-12 seconds max, if you have to reload or if he walks too far to the right, it has taken you to long. Once you do this and he is knocked off, immediatley after the cutscene take out your sniper, use the M107, and have both people instantly start firing headshots at Dalton, he should be across the room, once the cutscene is done he will directly across the room from you. It might help to take 2-3 steps to the left to get a clearer shot. If you both hit him with 2-3 headshots you should make it in under 40 seconds. The achievement should pop up about 2 seconds after he dies so you will know.
Now this is a very difficult achievement, you won't get it quickly. you and a partner will have to practice this many times. The most key part is being able to knock Dalton off the catwalk in about 10 seconds, 12 max!! Try to get him before he goes past the first bend of the catwalk. Just open fire right away with a PMK or Ak-47, me and my friend used Ak-47's but PMK does more damage but is less accurate. To get the headshots you will need to get lucky. Sometimes Dalton will run and hide, but right when the cutscene ends you will have a few seconds where he is out in the open shooting at you and if you get lucky he might even stop to reload before running to cover. You have to have your hand on the LB button in the cutscene getting ready to swtich to sniper. Once that scene ends run 2-3 steps to the left if you need to and instantly line up a few headshots. Like I said I got about 3 off on him and my friend got about 2-3. The headshots are key.
|I wanna be a cleaner||25|
|Final blow to Dalton is a headshot with a pimped .44 MODEL 29 handgun||(8)|
You must kill Dalton with a pimped .44 model 29 handgun. First equip that specific handgun and make sure the appearence is pimped. Then start a co-op game on Mission 8 on recruit. Once you get to Dalton try to get him down to about 2 bars of health, maybe less, once done get one partner to draw enough aggro to go into 2X damage mode. Make sure you are close to Dalton once in stealth mode, once in stealth mode run over to Dalton and shoot him repeatedly in the head with the pistol. When I did this I shot him about 5 times and he didn't die although once stealth mode ended I shot him once more and I got it. So I don't think you can get it in stealth mode but once stealth mode is over he should have like no health so you can just shoot him in the head. The trick here is to make sure the final blow that kills him is a headshot with the pistol. So there are a bunch of various methods to do this. Just do what works for you.
|Mission 7 Complete||30|
|Completed Mission 7 as Professional.||(3)|
You must beat this mission on Professional for the achievement. The mission is called "Kiev" and is pretty easy if done with a partner online thorugh co-op. The only semi-difficult part people seem to have trouble with is the back to back. For the back to back, try to stay on the sides it starts you on, don't keep turning around because that will confuse you. Stay on your side and take out the enemies quickly. Other than this the level is pretty easy. I have head reports of people putting the difficulty to recruit for the back to back, than afterwards switching back to Professional and still getting the achievement but I have not tried this so I can not confirm it.
|Mission 8 Complete||30|
|Completed Mission 8 as Professional.||(7)|
You must beat this mission on Professional for the achievement. The mission is called "Miami Alternate Ending" and is not terribly hard if done with a partner in online co-op. Mission 8 is not terribly hard until the end where you face off against Dalton. To defeat him make sure your both packing stingers. It should take about 4 rockets to knock him off the catwalk as long as each one was locked on. To easily pull this off make sure once the cutscene ends you run out side of the vault and shoot the stingers from outside the vault door, Dalton will keep circling around so take your time and wait until he walks into your line of sight. Once he is knocked down a cutscene will start. After it ends run imeediatley to one of the little bunkers, they are where all those electrical units are and they are lower down and provide great cover. WATCH OUT for a guy on the second floor who will be firing rockets at you, try to take him out quickly. As for Dalton turn on your GPS to see where he is, try chucking grenades at him and shoot him when he occasionally pops out of cover, try to keep moving around though from "bunker" to "bunker". What my friend and I did was eventually he got into 2X Damage mode and I was in Stealth mode, we were both close to Dalton so he started firing on Dalton with 2X Damage and I ran over in Stealth and started firing into his head. I suggest using the gun with the most damage which is the PKM, as your primary weapon. Anyways once your stealth/2X damage mode is done you should have Dalton down to literally no health if not dead, if this is the case just keep shooting him once the mode ends, and he should die. He died for my friend and I literally once my stealth mode was done.
