Guide By: The Pants Party
Step 2, Survival Mode:
[x360a would like to thank The Pants Party for this Roadmap]
|Kill 100 Ants|
See "Ant Farmer" for more info.
|Welcome to the EDF||10|
|Kill 1000 Ants|
See "Ant Farmer" for more info.
|Kill 10000 Ants||(1)|
If you don't get this while going for all the other Campaign/Survival achievements (highly unlikely), it can be worked on best during Chapter 1, Mission 4 after you blow a hole into the drainage ditch. There are three ant hills inside which will continually spawn ants until blown up. Use a turret and high tier assault rifle to rack up kills on Normal.
|Kill 100 Spiders|
See "Spider Fighter" for more info.
|Make it through 5 Survival Mode Waves in One Session||(2)|
This requires that you play through five consecutive waves without backing out to the main menu. Done solo it will be rather difficult as you won't have any revives, so try to find some friends to play with. The first map (Cornerstone) is the easiest, though Map 6 (Double Whammy) is excellent with the tank to use.
|Kill 100 Ticks|
See "Tick Tock Ya Don't Stop" for more info.
|Kill 10000 Spiders|
If you don't get this while going for all the other Campaign/Survival achievements, it can be worked on best during Chapter 1, Mission 4 (Ditchslap) in Remix mode. You have a 50/50 chance of getting spiders out of the three hills inside the drainage ditch.
|Tick Tock Ya Don't Stop||10|
|Kill 5000 Ticks||(1)|
Ticks are found with the Bomber Spiders primarily, and will come out of its orange splooge shots. They are best killed with a quick-fire assault rifle, or the Battle Armor's lightning attack. If you don't have this after doing all other Campaign/Survival achievements, you can grind the remainder out on Chapter 2, Mission 5 which has two Bombers at the end with a ton of ticks coming out of them. Kill the two Mantises (Mantii?) and just let the Bombers keep spewing ticks. There are also about 50 on Map 1 (Cornerstone) in Survival Mode, Wave 2.
|Kill 10 Small Hectors|
See "Hector Wrecker" for more info.
|Kill 100 Small Hectors|
You'll get nearly 20 Small Hectors in a single Campaign playthrough, but there are three near the beginning of Chapter 1, Mission 4 or five in Chapter 3, Mission 2 that you can farm if you'd like. You'll get a ton of these on Map 1 (Cornerstone) in Survival as well.
|The Sting's the Thing||5|
|Kill 10 Wasps|
See "War Against Soaring Pests Award" for more info.
|War Against Soaring Pests Award||10|
|Kill 100 Wasps||(1)|
The best spot I've found to farm wasp kills is described in the "Scavenger" achievement description. There are dozens of them on Map 2 (Shallow Grave) of Survival as well.
|It's a Start||5|
|Destroy 100 Gunships|
See "Fleet Depleter" for more info.
|Destroy 1000 Gunships|
See "Fleet Depleter" for more info.
|Destroy 10000 Gunships||(2)|
You'll likely only get about 250 of these during a Campaign run, and not a whole lot during Survival either. However, at the end of Chapter 3, Mission 1 you can avoid killing the carrier for unlimited spawns of over a dozen each time. You can get nearly 1000/hour if you're efficient enough, using one of the homing missile launchers and deployable turrets with the Tactical armor. Play on Normal with no bots for quicker kills.
|Kill 10 Bomber Spiders|
You will get this (playing solo) during the third mission of Chapter 3 on your first playthrough. If you're in co-op you may not have got all of them, so it could take some more time. Chapter 2, Mission 5 has two of them at the end, and is also a great spot for Tick kills.
|Look What the Rookie Did!||10|
|Kill 5000 enemies|
See "Who Ravages the Ravagers?" for more info.
|Survive 100 (total) waves in Survival mode.||(3)|
See "Survive-o-Rama" for more info.
|Who Ravages the Ravagers?||40|
|Kill 25000 Enemies||(9)|
This will easily come with progression toward all the other achievements, considering you need 25,000 for ants, spiders and ticks alone.
|Destroy 10 Carriers|
See "Carrier Dropper" for more info.
|Destroy 100 Carriers||(2)|
There are only 8 carriers in the Campaign, so this will take a bit of grinding. There are a few levels in the Campaign with two carriers each, so if you haven't got this after getting all your other kill-related achievements you can load up Chapter 2, Mission 1 to finish this off.
|Destroy 10 Anthills/Spider Nests|
See "Homewrecker" for more info.
|Destroy 100 Anthills/Spider Nests|
If you don't get this while going for all the other Campaign achievements, there are six in Chapter 1, Mission 4 which is rather short to do. Destroying these with the Pesticide weapons does not count, you need to manually arm the mines to blow them up.
|Collect All Dropped Weapons||(4)|
There are 107 total drop-only weapons from "Elite" enemies/bosses. The weapons are random for the most part and will drop on any level of the game, but you only get up to Tier 4 while playing on Normal difficulty. I have had Tiers 2-6 drop on Hard so there is a bit of overlap there, with Tier 7 being reserved to Inferno (though any Tier can drop on Inferno, all the way down to T2). There is only one Tier 8 weapon for each armor, which is a gift for maxing the respective armor's level. Weapons in your inventory that came from a drop will have a biohazard symbol on the left side.
|Smells Like Team Spirit||20|
|Incapacitate a teammate||(13)|
You can do this on the first level, and is easiest in a co-op game where the second player doesn't move. Just pick the Battle armor and use his rockets to kill your friend.
|Unlock all armors|
There are four different armor types in the game, and you are able to unlock one at the beginning of the first four missions. There is no cost to this, so it will come quickly with normal game progression.
|All Dressed Up...||25|
|Level up an armor completely|
See "Lifer" for more info.
|Level up all armors completely||(10)|
There are eight levels for every armor type, and the final level can only be earned while playing on Inferno difficulty. You can unlock up to Rank 5 in Normal difficulty or Rank 7 on Hard. Your "score" at the top of the screen during a level is how much experience you will earn after its completion. The more kills you get, the more experience. Higher difficulties will offer better experience, so the first mission on Inferno is a good starting point until you get up to Tier 6 or 7 and can handle the rest. Chapter 1, Mission 4 is fairly quick and offers great experience due to the many ant hills. Once you can handle it efficiently, Chapter 3, Mission 3 offers the best experience. Also, once you beat the game you can play again and turn the AI off, so you can get every single kill in a level. Be aware that you do not earn experience in Survival Mode.
You will need 3,174,000xp to fully upgrade all four armors.
|Purchase all available weapons for a single armor|
See "Daddy WarBugs" for more info.
|Purchase all weapons for all armors||(5)|
You'll earn money (CR) at the same rate as experience. Once you have all your armors at Tier 8, play Chapter 3, Mission 3 (The Package) with the Battle or Jet armor. Use the Pesticide gun, which you can survive at close range due to your shield on the Battle armor, or zip far enough away with the Jet armor, and blow through the level. You can get 140-160k XP/CR in about an hour doing this level repeatedly.
|Helping Hand Award||5|
|Revive a teammate|
See "Bedside Manner" for more info.
|Revive 250 teammates||(3)|
During a Survival mission you can revive any teammate up to three times before they are completely dead; there are unlimited revives during the campaign. Any armor type can revive, though the Trooper armor does so the fastest. This counts on both human and AI teammates. Simply hold the Y button over a downed teammate to revive them. The best place to work on this though is during your Inferno playthrough. You could also do it in a 6-player Survival game. You will all die eventually, likely before Wave 10, so you can try to snag a few revives per player.
|Survive 500 (total) waves in Survival mode||(9)|
There isn't much to this one. You'll need 10,000 kills in this mode anyway, so there will be plenty of waves involved grinding that out. Doing Wave 1, Map 1 (Cornerstone), you will get 40 kills per run, so that is only 250 waves to get the 10,000 required kills. It is very fast though, and you can simply pause and select "Retry" after Wave 1, then hit X when the loadout screen comes back to do another wave. You will likely average about 34/hour with this method.
|Get 1000 kills in Survival mode|
See "Social Dead Butterfly" for more info.
|Social Dead Butterfly||20|
|Get 10000 kills in Survival mode||(2)|
You'll no doubt earn this while working on the 500 waves completed, after only 250 waves if using the Map 1, Wave 1 boosting method.
|Get 250 kills with the Lander Turret||(1)|
The Lander is the aircraft you begin the very first mission in. You can probably get 30-40 kill per run of this level if you don't have it by the time you finish all the difficulty achievements. You also use it on Chapter 2, Mission 3.
|Get 500 kills with the Mech||(1)|
You first encounter the Mech on the fourth level, and it is used prominently in the fifth as well. You'll get quite a few kills with this during the course of the Campaign/Survival so there shouldn't be any need to grind extra.
|I Heard Them Scream||10|
|Get 500 kills with the Tank||(3)|
The tank is first found in Chapter 2, Mission 4. You won't really get many kills inside this level though. Your best bet for grinding these kills is Chapter 2, Mission 5 or Survival Mode Mission 6 (Double Whammy).
|Get 500 kills with Base Turrets||(1)|
These first show up in the second mission, and you'll likely earn well over a hundred between it and the third mission alone. You'll get quite a few kills with this during the course of the Campaign/Survival so there shouldn't be any need to grind extra. If you want to knock it out quickly though, play Map 1 (Cornerstone) of Survival.
|Destroy 500 buildings|
See "Collateral" for more info.
|Destroy 500 cars/vehicles|
See "Collateral" for more info.
|Destroy 500 world objects|
This will likely come without any effort. If you play this anything like I played 2017, you'll be destroying more of the city than enemies sometimes - especially when one elusive ant decides to hide at the end of a mission. Grab a rocket launcher and go wild.
|Beat the game on Normal||(5)|
See "Infernal Master Destroyer Deluxe" for more info.
|We mean it Man…..||(1)|
See "Manticore" for more information.
|Preying ON Mantis||(2)|
The Preying Mantis first appears in Chapter 2, Mission 3. You'll fight two here and another three in the following mission. You'll get this for defeating 10 of them during your Hard playthrough as there are only about 7 in all the missions. There is no "weak spot" for this enemy, so just use a rocket launcher on its body. A Tactical armor with a Plasma Turret is a huge help against these.
|Well he's a long gone daddy….||(1)|
The Daddy Long Legs is found in Chapter 1, Mission 5. Much like the carriers, you simply need to shoot the bay underneath him as he drops more spiders. If playing co-op, have one person focus on the bay and the rest kill the ravagers. Solo, you'll have to hope your AI watch your back as you go for the bay.
|The bigger they are….||(2)|
The Large Hector is first found in Chapter 2, Mission 4. The weak spot here is the chest. Your best option is to run in a wide circle around the level inside the tank. Once the Bomber Spider appears, take that out quickly, then refocus on the Hector.
|The Queen is dead!||(3)|
The Ant Queen is found in Chapter 3, Mission 4. She stays inside the nest, but her weak spot is a small diagonal stripe on her ass, so you'll need to move from side to side to keep her head pointing on an angle so you have an open shot at it. This is a good spot to farm ant and wasp kills if you need them, just avoid killing her.
|Rule # 3||(11)|
See "Infernal Master Destroyer Deluxe" for more info. This is unlocked for beating the game on Hard.
|Infernal Master Destroyer Deluxe||100|
|Dante? Is that you?||(9)|
The game has three difficulty levels available: Normal, Hard and Inferno. They are all available from the start, but the game is rather short with only 15 levels, so I would suggest just playing each in full to work on weapon drops, kills and leveling up your armors. This specific achievement is for beating the game on Inferno. See the Road Map for some Campaign tips.
