Condemned: Criminal Origins

Condemned: Criminal Origins Achievements

Melee Mayhem Award

You found every type of melee weapon and fire-arm   

You need to hit an enemy with every melee weapon in the game, as well as using every firearm as a melee weapon and using the taser. I would suggest writing down/printing off a list, and every time you use a weapon, cross it off.

The list of melee weapons is:
Rebar Conrete, Conduit, Sledgehammer, 2x4 Nails, 2x4 Bolts, Fire Axe, Large Pipe, Small Pipe, Rebar Bent, Shovel, Rebar, Crowbar, Mannequin Arm, Sign, Steam Pipe, Clothes Rack, Locker Door, Meat Cleaver, Paper Cutter, Gas Pipe, Desk Drawer, 2x4 Burnt, 2x4 Fire, Desktop, Stick, Large Plank, Fireplace Poker, .45 Cal, Revolver, Shotgun (pump), Shotgun (sawed-off), Sub-Machine Gun, Rifle, Taser

This achievement will only unlock at the end of a chapter, so if you have used all weapons and don't get it right away, make sure you finish the chapter to receive it.

This achievement will unlock as long as you use all guns for melee kills
I would advise making a list of each weapon and ticking off after each usage.

i love how the achievement says "found" every weapon and how it doesn't say shit about "using" all the weapons.

There is also a "Handrail" that you will find in the blue restroom on Chapter 8. I'm not sure whether you actually need it for the cheevo or not, but it's not mentioned in the list.

Very true! ...but don't forget early in the game you kill that guy with a handrail when you are hanging onto the back of a subway train. You don't really have a choice on that one, it comes automatic

@5 not correct. You need to get the handrail from chapter 8. Its on the second floor bathroom right before you enter the room with the addict scratching the chalkboard. You need to get it before attacking him or you can miss it. Also with the weapons link in the roadmap be sure to scroll down to the other list posted by Krazie its much more helpful.

Also can anyone confirm if you have to melee with all fiire-arms as well to get the achievement?

@Bum Commando, I cannot be totally sure about the fire arms as melee weapons, but between the Library and Chapter 10 you can easily get and use all the firearms as melee weapons. And if you make a save point right before the busted up white building with the two SMGs and the four health packs, you can reload, back-track just a bit and grab the rifles and just finish off the second hate ninja (by luring him back into the white building where he gets stuck at the stairs) and the final boss. Also, I never used the handrail and still got the cheevo.

I played it safe and made a list of all the weapons in the game, killed at least 1 enemy with all of them (including using the guns as melee weapons) and still no achievement. I used 3 differant guides together to make sure that they hadnt missed a weapon out so maybe there is a well hidden weapon somewhere that no-one has found yet.
I cant waste anymore time on it anyway im off to play skyrim :)

Can anyone tell me if I simply need to hit an opponent with each weapon, or actually kill them with it? it seems to me I've wasted a lot of strikes with the melee weapons trying to actually finish them off with each weapon, because of that 'stunned' type thing they do at the end of their lifespan, where they go to their knees and you can't melee them any further until they get up again (except with a kick).

You only need to use all melee weapons for this one, you don't need firearm!

if anyone still plays this, you DO need to hit them with all the fire arms tho. I'd suggest playing chapter 7 where you will get almost all the weapons except the rifle after chapter 7 continue playing chapter 8 where you will get regular rebar and handrail wich both are easely missed during your playthrough
