Duke Nukem Forever Achievements

I Am All That Is Man

Discover all Ego cap awards   

There are many Ego cap awards, which are given to you for interacting with the environment and defeating bosses. These are the actions in each mission that boost Duke's health level. There is a tracker in the chapter select screen to check how many in each chapter you have.

Boss battles also increase the total Ego so the achievement will unlock after killing the Energy Leech if you follow the guide. Provided is a guide/checklist of "Ego Cap" locations to go along with the video. Items listed by appearance.

To save "Ego Cap" - you must reach a new Zone (Lady Killer -> Lady Killer: Part 2). Not just a save checkpoint!

At least this one will be amusing.

this isn't as much a collectable achievement as it is just max your health to the highest it can get

That is better than finding 30+ collectibles on spots you will never look at.

I know there's a photocopier and paper planes which are sort of not obvious, and then there's all the porn mag's lololololol everything else is quite straight forward but I still don't have this either.

@10 You can jump through levels, you just have to reach a CHECKPOINT before you exit out for it to count.

Some cheevs count double! I got the achievement after I found the calender in the Shrinker level.
(On some levels I had to find 1 or 2 other items to proceed)

both the strip club and the first level, you have to get all the pooltable balls in the holes.

theres a "glory hole" in the strip club toilets that is an ego boost which i didnt notice next to th toilet

Comment #15 by Jackdmetal

I'm missing 1 in the strip club level and wondering
If the ego boosts have to be completed on the same difficulty? I've got all the others throughout the game and can't find the last one

Jesus christ I got down to 1 ball like 4 times on the pool table and then either a ball flies off of the table or I scratch. Fuck that.

Weird trick for you guys. I know how frustrating the pool table challenge can be;I got so frustrated I decided to try something ridiculous and it worked. In the game room at Duke's Titty City (no way of doing this with the pool table in Duke Lives!); go grab one of the basketballs from the throwing game. Throw the ball at the pool balls. It's still hard to get them to go in and you have to keep looking for the basketball after it gets on the ground, but your odds of scratching or having a ball fly off drop significantly; the latter becoming impossible.

I cant seem to pot all the pool balls,the white ball keeps rebounding off stuff and it keeps getting sunk.... :'(

Wow that seems like an amazing trick there Bcadren, I would probalby do that if I didn't already have the pooltable thing completed...for me it was more being patient and hitting the white ball before it goes in a hole.

i missed one can i reload a chapter after beating the game and still get it like the phone messages, or do they all have to be gotten in one playthrough?

if you look everywhere on the map you could probably get this in 1 run threw.

Hey, just for a heads up there is a tricky ego cap that I don't think is necesarily mentioned in the guide. If you go to The Lady Killer mission and try the benching ego cap with all 6 weights on you'll get another ego cap aside from "just doing a rep". Btw the other weights can be found in the room to the right while engaging Duke Vision.

I went through the list from the guide and no luck. It says i'm 6/7 for The Duke Cave and 13/14 for Titty City. Anyone know what i'm missing?

This one is horribly glitched for me. It keeps re-locking old ones whenever I unlock a new one. I've had to do the pinball machine 5 times now, and the pool table 3 times....
