Introduction:
Welcome to Crackdown 2, a sandbox game created by Ruffian Games. Crackdown 2 takes 10 years after the story of Crackdown. The city has been over run by a gang known as Cell and the Infected known as Freaks. Get ready to climb huge skyscrapers, grab a massive amount of collectibles, and blow up huge amounts of Cell and Infected. You will be saving the city with your super agent, one more time.

Breakdown:
Since there is no difficulty based achievements, you can begin right away on "Fragile" difficulty (easiest difficulty). As you play through the game, whenever you see agility orbs, go for them as much as possible. Having a high agility early on helps you get around the city much easier. Always use a variety of attacks to level up equally in all skill levels.

Story Mode:
Playing through the story will net you a minimum of 350 for just the story. Play through the story destroying all the Beacons and Cell Strongholds as you play. You will obtain everything that is story related as you play through it.

Miscellaneous/Clean up:

Conclusion:
Crackdown 2 is one game that doesn't get enough credit. It is great for coop game play that many may be looking for. But none the less, a enjoyable sandbox game among the ranks.

This may take a couple practice runs to figure out how far/hard you need to jump. You can also do this in co-op while playing with a friend.

Create a new campaign because the beginning tactical locations are much easier. Start a new game and complete the first 2 tactical locations normally, then activate the three absorption units that appear on your HUD. After this is complete, 5 tactical locations will show up on the map. These are the best 5 to go after with your team.

This can be done with anywhere between 2-8 players in a quick match game. Try to find a empty lobby (others may search too) and once you have found one, invite everyone that you are boosting with to the lobby. Once everyone that wants to boost is in the lobby, pick out which players will go in which order to complete the achievement. Have the selected player go and grab the orb for the entire duration without blowing up their car or having another player hit them to make them loose the orb. You must keep driving so drive around the outskirts and away from the other players as they wait for you to finish. Then rinse and repeat for others in the group that need the achievement.

One Careful Driver30
Win a Vehicle Tag Quick Match without ever destroying your vehicle. 

To win, you must have the orb for either the longest amount of time before time runs out or win by reaching 150 points all together. During this your vehicle you start with cannot be destroyed.

Refer to "Never Give It up" for how to accomplish both Vehicle Tag Quick Match achievements.

 

Beyond the Infinite50
Develop all skills to level 6. (7) 

You must get each of your skills to the 6th Level. This will make the circle complete and the final sixth red orb will be lit up.

The skills that you need to get up are:

  • Agility - You gain Agility Experience by collecting agility orbs and from shooting enemies from a high altitude. You will need to collect 400+ agility orbs to get to this.

  • Firearms - Killing enemies with guns is the only way. Using explosive weapons like Grenade Launchers and Rocket Launchers don't count.

  • Strength - You gain strength by punching, kicking, hitting, and throwing objects at enemies. You melee by pressing the  button. Pick up objects by holding down the  button, and throwing them with .

  • Explosives - Killing enemies with grenades, rocket launchers, grenade launchers, cars that explode, and explosive items count towards the Explosive skill. This will come with ease as explosives are the easiest way to eliminate multiple enemies quickly.

  • Driving - You earn driving experience by doing road races, catching renegade driving orbs, doing tricks in the air (barrel rolls, J-turns), hitting/running over and killing enemies.

 
 
DLC: Deluge
Cost: $6.99 USD Achievements: 10 Points: 250
 
15 Minutes of Maim25
Survive the Deluge for 15 minutes in every arena. (5) 

This one requires you to survive 15 minutes in each of the three arenas (Hope Springs, Green Bay, Unity Heights). The best way is to start at Zone 1, Wave 1 and continue to play until you've reached Zone 2, Wave 7. If you die, you need to compensate for the time penalty you receive and keep playing. The achievement will pop up once you've survived long enough in the last arena.

Cartographer 25
Win a public match of Capture the Orb in every arena. (32) 

Capture the Orb is the latest addition to the team-based PvP modes in Crackdown 2. You need to capture the enemy's orb while defending your own. The following are the six maps to win on:

  • Docks
  • Block
  • Figure of Hate
  • Hostile Takeover
  • Uptown GRRRR!!
  • The Pit

Note: If you are on the leading team and everyone in the opposing team quits, the game will end and will count as a win.

Decimator 25
Destroy 10,000 wave enemies in Deluge. (3) 

This achievement is self-explanatory. You must kill 10,000 enemies of any kind in while in Deluge mode. A good way is to unlock the Project Sunburst achievement. Doing so, will unlock the helicopter. Use the helicopter to breeze through the later waves, which contain a lot more enemies. You can grind about 2,000 kills/hour using this method.

You can check your status in the pause menu, under "Achievements". Also, you can always save & quit, your kills will be saved.

Deluge Domination25
Complete all 50 waves of a Deluge arena. (4) 

Just start any arena and complete it until the very end. If you're hosting, don't worry about dying, you can restart at the last failed wave.

Earth Wind Fire25
Achieve 5x Combo, Blast, and Air in Deluge. (2) 

This one certainly requires a bit of luck. It requires you to gain 5x Combo, 5x Blast and 5x Air at the same time. This means you will have to kill 5 enemies with a gun (You could also melee-kill them) while standing on the ground, kill 5 enemies while in the air (Also no explosives here) and kill 5 enemies with any kind of explosives (Grenades, Rocket launcher, grenade launcher, etc.).

A simple technique is to throw a grenade into a big group of enemies, jump in the air, shoot 5 guys, land, and kill another 5 enemies.

A good place for doing this is Hope Springs, zone 4, wave 4.

Project Sunburst 25
Play Deluge with Project Sunburst enhancements or with someone who has this achievement. (18) 

This is a viral achievement, unless you happen to own a Windows Phone 7 smartphone with Project Sunburst on it. If so, you will gain a few advantages including Peacekeeper support and several powerups. If you gain this achievement by playing with somebody who already got this achievement, you will get only 1 bonus: A helicopter.

If you are looking for someone to give you this achievement, take a look into THIS thread.

Raging Bull25
Kill 10 Freaks in 30 seconds by shoulder charging. (2) 

A shoulder charge can be done by holding after running a short distance. Running into enemies will kill them on contact. Find a highly-populated area to kill some freaks. A good place to do this is the quarry in Hope Springs.

Speed Scorer25
Score 20,000 points in 1 minute in any Deluge arena. 

This will most likely be your first achievement in this DLC. If not, just cover an area full of enemies with grenades and rockets, this will give you a nice score, even without a high multiplier.

The Big Score25
Score 1,000,000 points in any Deluge arena. 

This one is a bit tricky. You need to gain 1 million points in any of the three arenas. The trick for this achievement is racking up your score multiplier. The higher it goes, the more points you will earn for your kills.  Avoid dying at all costs, since it resets your multiplier back to 1.

The Blender 25
Kill 60 Freaks in 60 seconds using the blades on the helicopter. (9) 

Start up a singleplayer game and hop into a helicopter. Fly to the quarry (top island of Hope Springs) and wait for the Freaks to come and spread out. Fly to the topmost path and lose height until your helicopter floats above the ground. Then just strafe to your left or right, butchering large groups of enemies and this achievement will pop up in no time.
