FEAR 3 Achievements

Man Mode

Finish the Campaign on INSANE difficulty    

To unlock INSANE difficulty you will need to complete all 8 intervals on a separate difficulty first. Once you have INSANE unlocked you must play through the entire game on INSANE difficulty. You must complete all intervals for this achievement to pop. You also must not replay, change difficulty, change characters or anything else between intervals. INSANE mode is also more manageable the higher level you are. Higher levels give you more health, more slow motion (possession) time and more grenade/ammunition. Even if you don't change anything sometimes this achievement will not pop. Start another game on INSANE and eventually you'll earn this achievement. There's no guaranteed method to earn this if it glitches, just keep playing.

There are a few difficult spots when playing on INSANE difficulty:

Interval 04
In the middle of the level you will be attacked by a Powered Armor, the easiest way to kill it is by stunning it with Shock Grenades. If you do not have any on you, check the wooden shed for 3 Shock Grenades. Once the Powered Armor is stunned, lay into it with your G3A3 or bombard it with frag grenades.

Interval 05
In the middle of the level you will be attacked by a Phase Caster and then immediately after a Powered Armor. The strategy in Interval 04 still applies, to your right (when entering the room) is a weapon crate with shock grenades. There is also a weapon crate on the left side of the room with the Arc Beam.

Interval 07
Near the end of the level you will press a button to open a bay door while Monostrosities warp in to kill you. Once you press the button to open the door, run back to the previous room and close the door. The Monstrosities won't be able to kill you and the door will still open. Every now and then a monstrosities body will phase through the wall, you can knife and kill them without risking yourself.

This strategy works if you brought the riot shield from the previous room (where you fought 2 Phase Commandos). Crouch, open the door and stand in the door way. The monstrosities won't be able to hurt you and you'll be able to kill them as they try to kill you. Once they're all dead you can reach the next area hassle free.

Saturday, June 25, 2011 @ 08:54:19 AM

Seems so you can do this in co-op, i geuss thats how most ppl got this by now ;) Plus there seems to be a new methode of the infamous "Savegame" stuff going on. If you ever wonder how some ppl almost finish every game on 1000/1000 then either they having no life or just achievement bitches or they did something ;)
Sorry i mentioned this but i just meet to much ppl lately that somehow finshed all just out games already with 1000G.

To unlock Insane, just beat the game on any difficulty. You don't have to beat it on Fearless.

WTF? Beat this on Insane and no achievement!! From the comments above it seems I'm not the only one with this problem. Any solutions? Crysis 2 all over again!

Anyone have any tips for the end of Interval 07 dogfest using Fettel? He really sucks when he's mobbed.

Comment #27 by spawn666
Wednesday, July 06, 2011 @ 11:31:39 PM

@ 26 I'm guessing you have already beaten the two Phase Commanders. For the part after that with the swarm of Scavengers just run back to the room that you started from and hide in the corner by the crates on the right side. Or you can kill them at the door way and close the door when you start taking damage. Eventually they will stop spawning and you can complete the level.

Take your time. Use head shots,cover and slow mo as much as possible. Right before you come out of cover use slow mo and aim for the head.

Comment #36 by fooyfoofy
Saturday, July 30, 2011 @ 01:43:11 AM

this is very easy. also in the main menue, set yr difficulty on insane there to since you might have problems if you dont do that there. Although, pretty easy cheevo,just dont rush through and take your time, and if played in coop, just work as a team and it helps to communicate. Did in around a couple hours with me and my friends and the only real challenges were the meck suits when can be hard to kill, but and overally easy acheevment if u take ur time.

Insane difficulty is a joke seriously especially on Multiplayer.I mean fear is a
Fucking epic series but the cheevos needed to be a bit harder on this one compared
to Fear and Fear files this was a walk in the park.

Comment #47 by BonySOOKY
Sunday, September 04, 2011 @ 03:43:04 PM

I just got the game a few days ago & completed Pointman & Fettel on casual or easy. Now if you think im going to do that in Insane Mode then you must be insane.

Ok most of it i know i could do but there are always parts in games that are a pain & in Fear 3 there's a few but the main one would have to be late on in Ch 7 & you have to press a button for the rolling gate to come up.

Meanwhile, you are being constanly attacked by some sort of devil dogs from everywhere.
Once the gate comes up you go under, press the button again & wait for it to close down again. Problem is you are still constanly being attacked......

Even on easy it was a pain.

Monday, September 19, 2011 @ 07:22:24 PM

Easy especially if you have a friend to coop with. The higher level you are, the easier it is (more slow-mo or possess meter if you Fettel)

i finished this game on FEARLESS in 2 days it wasnt too bad till u get to last 2 levels. but the reason i played it on FEARLESS was so i can get this achievement INSANE difficulty wasnt an option at the the time tuns out u have 2 finish the game once 2 unlock INSANE DIFFICULTY which is the dumbest shit i ever seen.they should atleast gave us a extra 60G achievement 4 finishing the story on FEARLESS

Comment #51 by Grimyest
Friday, October 28, 2011 @ 08:12:34 AM

BonySOOKY: i found a way 2 make that part easy. all u do is press the button then run back the way u came theres a trash can in the left corner all u do is camp in that corner till the demon dogs or wat ever they r start to go away theyll just pause and sit still so u can kill em all and 2 or 3 mite still b rushing u every now n then just slow mo and shoot em or knife em
