Guide By: Cla55y, Gerror
[x360a would like to thank Cla55y for this road map]
|Just like Dad would have done||15|
|Complete the game on any difficulty level|
Cadet is the easiest difficulty.
|Best cop this city's ever had||25|
|Complete the game on OFFICER difficulty|
This is the “Normal” difficulty.
|Complete the game on DETECTIVE difficulty||(2)|
|Detective is the games “Hard” difficulty The achievements stack so to make it quicker just go straight in on Detective.|
|Crossing the line||15|
|Defeat the Enforcer with a Takedown|
|Mission 1 (Not the prologue) after the tutorial for fist fighting you will come to the towers foyer. Here you will meet a large topless man with tattoos. He is an Enforcer. Proceed to attack him and eventually you should get a prompt on your screen to press do so and you should get a cutscene where you do something brutal which results in his death. This is a Takedown.|
|Shown the ropes||15|
|Complete the fight with Frank.|
|At the beginning of Mission 2 you will be in a boxing ring with your dad (Frank). Here it will teach you about combos and other fist fighting techniques. Complete all these tasks and the achievement will pop up.|
Note: Once you have done this you can stay in the ring and farm other achievements as long as you don't hit the bell. The achievements you can unlock here are as follows:
"It’s all in the timing"
|Perform a silent kill with Shadow||(2)|
|See "Shhhhh", but you only need to do it once|
|Smile, you son of a…||10|
|Take out a GAC Tank||(1)|
|You will first meet the GAC Tank in Mission 6. You will get a mini cutscene introducing you to him. He has a big yellow canister on his back. Shoot this enough and he will explode. |
I found the sniper rifle most effective on him as it only takes one shot to the canister to take him down.
|That's what you gets!||10|
|Kill an enemy by knocking or throwing him off a ledge||(1)|
|In Mission 1 after taking down the Enforcer and traveling up the elevator you will will be taught about disarms. In this area you will need to clinch (+) and take an enemy hostage () and move over to the railing and hit +up on . You will then kick the enemy over the rail to his death.|
|Got your GAC||10|
|Take a GAC hostage|
|Mission 5 is where you first meet the GAC forces. You will need to take one of them hostage by clinching (+) and the hitting to take him hostage.|
|Get ready for a surprise!||10|
|Leap over and kick an enemy from cover|
|In the same area as described in “That's what you gets!”, take cover behind a block with an enemy taking cover on the other side, the hold up on the and hit to jump the cover and you will automatically kick the guy on the other side.|
|Complete any level (excluding the Prologue) without firing a shot||(1)|
|I did this on Mission 1. Its easy enough on Officer difficulty (Normal) but to do it even easier do it on Cadet (Easy). Just disarm everyone with a gun and proceed to beat them up and take them down. Also if there is a ledge nearby take the enemies hostage and kick the over the side as described in “That's what you gets!”.|
Another good mission for this is Mission 2.
|Crime and punishment||15|
|Perform 50 takedowns|
|To perform a takedown you will need to beat up an enemy enough to the point where he is holding his face and no longer fighting back. At this point you will get a prompt to press and you will get a brutal cutscene where you execute the poor. It doesn't matter if its a shooting takedown or a hand-to-hand takedown.|
|Perform 50 Shadow kills|
|You will get this before the end of the game. There is 2 ways to get these. The people you kill in the sections where you are controlling shadow count towards this as well as pressing to order Shadow to attack while you are controlling Jack.|
|Bring a gun to a fist fight||15|
|Perform 50 disarms|
|To perform a disarm press while fighting an enemy, however the GAC enemies you must punch a few times before you are able to do it. You will get a prompt to press when you are able to do so. |
You should get this before the end of the level you are going for the “Brawler” achievement on.
|It’s all in the timing||15|
|Perform 50 counters||(1)|
|To perform a counter you must hit just as the enemy is throwing their punch. Do this 50 times and the achievement is yours. |
You can also get this achievement at the beginning of Mission 2 when you are fighting Frank in the boxing ring. See “Shown the Ropes” for more details on what else you can achieve here.
|Perform 200 3-hit combos|
|A 3-hit combo is a combo consisting of 3 button presses E.G. ,,. Do this 200 times to unlock the achievement. Chances are you will unlock this in a playthrough just from button mashing your through the fist fighting.|
This can also be unlocked in the Frank fight at the beginning of Mission 2 (See “Shown the Ropes”)
|Perform 100 5-hit combos|
|Just the same a “Featherweight” except this time you need to do a 5 hit combo. E.G. ,,,,+|
If you aren't adept at combos you probably won't unlock this in a playthrough but it is another one that can be farmed at the beginning of mission 2 in the fight with Frank (See “Shown the Ropes”)
|Dash evade 50 strikes|
|To perform a dash evade you must hit and a direction as the enemy throws their punch. You will move aside and his punch will fly past you. Repeat 50 times for the achievement.|
This is another one that can be farmed at the beginning of Mission 2 in the fight with Frank (See “Shown the Ropes”)
|Perform a tag team kill with Shadow|
|See “Finish Him Shadow”, but you only need to do it once for this achievement.|
|Open 10 doors with a hostage head||(4)|
When you grab an enemy and take them hostage (clinch with + then tie up with ) you can run around with them as a meat shield, when you come to a door and open it you will open the door with them. When I did it it he opened the door with them but it wasn't their head, it was their chest so the description is slightly off for this one but it doesn't make a huge difference.
Another place is in Chapter 2. After you get the key with Shadow and you are controlling Jack again carry on for a bit until you get to an outside section with a chain gate with a forklift next to it. Reload the checkpoint that is just here then turn around and run back inside the warehouse and grab the enemy that is inside. (Clinch with + then tie up with ), then run him over to the chain gate and open it up with him. Reload checkpoint again and repeat.
|The price of justice||10|
|Collect 25 cop badges|
|See "Honor the dead"|
|Honor the dead||30|
|Collect 50 cop badges|
There is an outside website with a badge guide: http://www.msxbox-world.com/features/Dead-to-Rights-Retribution/
There are ten missions, with 5 badges per level.
|Perform a Shadow groin takedown||(1)|
|This will most probably be your first achievement. In the prologue where you are controlling Shadow protecting Jack. Sprint around and hit next to an enemy to rip them apart. Eventually he will attack their groin and the achievement will unlock.|
|Medal of merit||25|
|Bronze rating on every level|
|See “Medal of valor”|
|Medal of bravery||50|
|Silver rating on every level|
|See “Medal of valor”|
|Medal of valor||100|
|Gold rating on every level|
|This is actually extremely easy. When you are playing on hard you will most probably get most of them, if not all. But to mop up the ones you missed you need to get as many bonuses as possible.|
I did this on Officer difficulty and although you will get a bigger multiplier on Detective it could be a struggle getting Gold on them due to the extra time and deaths it will take to complete the level (Officer has a 1.25x and Detective has a 1.5x)
The bonuses are as follows:
Clear Time – Finish the Mission as fast as possible, this goes up to a score of 3000
Variation Bonus – Mix your kills up between Shadow, Shooting and Hand-to-hand. This goes up to a maximum of 1500
Survival – Don't Die (1000 possible)
You want to get as many of the following as possible all up to a maximum of 1000 points:
Takedowns -See “Crime and punishment”
Headshots – See “Boom”
Stealth Kills – The sections where you control shadow, don't get seen while you take out everyone. See "Shhhhh"
Tag Team – See “Finish him Shadow!”
|Complete any level with 10 silent kills, on OFFICER or greater difficulty.||(8)|
|Mission 2, once you get control of Shadow hold to sneak around and pick the enemies off 1 by 1. The enemies are really dumb so you don't need to be incredibly stealthy to do this but be as careful as possible anyway. |
Once you are next to an enemy you will get a prompt to hit . if underneath the picture you see the words “silent kill” this will count as one of the 10.
This will unlock at the mission results screen so keep count so you know if you will get it.
|Achieve maximum VARIATION BONUS on any level (excluding the Prologue)|
|See “Medal of valor”|
I'd Recommend Mission 3 for this.
|Get 30 headshots in any level, on OFFICER or greater difficulty.|
|Line up your shots and shoot enemies in the head. You will know when you get a headshot as the game will go into slow motion for a few seconds. Repeat 29 more times for the achievement. |
This will unlock at the mission results screen.
|Got your back||30|
|Complete a level without Jack or Shadow dying (levels 3-10)||(5)|
|Select Mission 8 on Cadet and take it slow. Don't send Shadow off to kill anyone to avoid him going down. If you have to revive him you will have to start over. The reason I say mission 8 is because once you have Temple hostage you will have unlimited ammo so try and get hold of an LMG and just spray everywhere. When you are low hold while you have Temple hostage and it will refill your ammo.|
|First at the scene||30|
|Achieve maximum CLEAR TIME BONUS on any level (excluding the Prologue)|
|See “Medal of valor”|
I'd recommend Mission 1 for this.
|Finish him Shadow!||25|
|Combine Jack and Shadow to kill 20 enemies in any level, on OFFICER or greater difficulty.|
|I'd recommend Mission 9 for this on Officer. Mainly because you will always have Shadow and it's a fairly lengthy mission. Just shoot an enemy and order Shadow to attack the same enemy. Your shot should make the enemy recoil so Shadow can rip him apart. Repeat this 19 more times and the achievement will pop up at the end of the mission.|
|Clear a path for Jack|
|Story Related. This will unlock after completing the Prologue.|
|Protect the innocent||15|
|Save the hostages||(2)|
|This is the only secret you won't get from just completing the storyline. In Mission 1 there are 3 sets of hostages to save. NONE OF THEM CAN DIE. The first set is where you are first taught about the focus mode (). There is one guy here holding a hostage.|
Later on in the level you will come across the next set with two enemies patrolling them, again, use focus mode and take both out QUICK before the other shoots a hostage.
The third set is the same as the 2nd set except they will be at the bottom of a set of stairs, again use focus mode and quickly dispose of these two.
The achievement will unlock straight away if you have saved them all.

|Play on CADET difficulty and use the seperate DLC Mission Guide to speed through it. Try not to die as this wastes time, this may take a couple of attempts but the more times you play through the more likely you will get the hang of it.|
|Get 350,000 points in a single play session of Riot Control.|
Riot Control is the new mode that comes with the DLC. This mode is similar to all those “Horde modes” that have been going around recently. You play as Jack who is accompanied by Shadow, there is only one level you can play on which is the Alpha Site Helipad 2. The game consist of 6 rounds which get harder by having more enemies later on. Two bosses appear one on round 3 and another on round 6. Ok first thing you want to do is stay near the helipad area. Go down the stairs where you start and take a left, there should be a box with a pistol in there, don’t use it yet save it for when you are desperate. When you first start the enemies that come will use their fists so try using the ,, ,+,+ combo on them as this deals a lot of damage as well as gaining you “focus”. As you are doing this you may be prompted to do a takedown do this and you will be rewarded with 2000 points. Now when doing the takedown you still have full control of the camera. Try and aim it at another enemy and use the up direction to tell Shadow to attack the other guards. Doing this rewards you with a Shadow take down and a command kill. Scoring more points and a multiplier the quicker you pull these combos and kills off you should notice the bar in the top left fill up. Once this has filled up your fists will be on fire and you have now entered “Retribution mode” this means you get double points on all the takedowns, combos and kills you do. So keep using your fists as this will quickly rack up points as well as an end of round bonus. The more you string the combos together and kills the longer the bar will take to go down meaning you could if your good enough be able to make it last a whole round. Some general tips for this mode:
Don’t use the turret it’s too inaccurate and you open your self to being attacked from behind.
|Dedication to the cause||40|
|Get 5,000,000 points total over multiple play sessions of Riot Control.|
|No matter how many points you get if you die or finish the six rounds it will continuly add up to 5mil. You may at first be only getting 100,000 per game but after a while you may get 500,000 - 650,000 a time so it wont take as long as you think. This achievement will pop the moment you hit 5mil.|
|Marking your territory||5|
|Upload a Riot Control score to the leaderboard.|
|After you have finished all six rounds or if you die, (no matter what score) at the end the game will automatically upload the score for you as long as you are connected to Xbox Live.|
|Score 500,000 points in Retribution Mode over multiple play sessions of Riot Control.|
See "Contender" for tips on scoring.
Retribution mode is when you have gainied so many points in a short period of time your fists will be on fire.
|Score 250,000 points from Retribution Bonus over multiple play sessions of Riot Control.|
When the Retribuition Mode has ran out or the round ends you will get a "Retribution Bonus" it can go all the way upto 10,000 points. The longer and more varied you kept your combos the higher the bonus will be. You can have Retribution Mode run out and get a bonus then fill up the meter, multiple times in a single round but you get more points for keeping it there for longer.
See "Contender" if you need scoring tips.
|Jack Slate of all trades||15|
|Get 15 unique awards in one round in Riot Control.|
|Using the guide provided you should have a few already at the start of the round but I will list the easier ones there are though 33 awards to get. But you only need 15, and it has to be in one round and has to be 15 Different awards. This is best done on any round but round 1 as there is less types of enemies and not enough weapons.|
-Disarm Shoot an enemy's weapon to disarm him.
-Explosive Shoot one of the barrels when a enemy is near it to get this one, must kill them!
-Headshot Shoot an enemy in the head.
-Mobile Cover bonus Kill an enemy while holding another hostage
-Massive damage Kill an enemy with significantly more damage than it take to kill him, (use the LMG on a scout or weak soldier whilst in focus mode)
-Dead Eye Kill an enemy with a ranged weapon from long distance. In round 2 towards the end there should be snipers appearing in towers shoot one in the head from the helipad should suffice.
-Tag team Use Jack and Shadow to kill an enemy. While shadow is attacking someone shoot them in the head.
-Cheese! Score the same medal three times in a row(most likely takedown or shadow takedown)
-Overboard! First enemy you see grab them with + and through them over the helipad side.
-Guard break kill Using the ,,++ combo you should be able to get this quite easily. The enemy must be blocking to work though!
-Shadow Kill Use shadow to kill an enemy you can get this as well as:
-Command kill Press on an enemy for shadow to take him down.
-Takedown Hurt an enemy enough untill you are prompted to take down an enemy with the Button.
-Last man takedown Repeat the above but use it on the last enemy.
-Switch style Combine armed and unarmed tactics to kill an enemy.
|Didn't I kill you already?||25|
|Defeat Redwater in Riot Control.||(4)|
|May seem tricky at first but don't worry he isn't nearly as hard as he was on single player. He appears midway through round 6 by chopper he should get off the helipad with a few soldiers. Ignore him for now. Unless he comes and directly attacks you use the ,,, +,+ combo as this deals the most damage. After he takes so much damage he will use a flash grenade to stun you and teleport across the map. He will stay there unless you go near him so avoid him and take out the remaing officers first. As soon as you kill him the achievement will pop.|
