FEAR 3 Achievements

Handle with Care

Return 30 crates in one game of Contractions  

This achievement requires a single person to return 30 crates by themselves. You don't need a team for this but the more players you have the easier it will be. You will need to work together and communicate for this achievement. A solid method for this is playing on "Mechanized Invasion" and be sure each person understands their role. This strategy is also viable for earning "Hanging 20".

From the beginning all 3-4 players need to rush to the Church building, it's on the other side of the map from where the team originally spawns; from there each player needs to understand their role:

Player #1 - Crate Runner
This player will spend all of the preparation phases and most of the fog phases running crates to the base until they have the achievement. Once there they'll fall in with players 3 and 4.

If they go into last stand they will need to shuffle their way back to the safe zone where they can be picked up.

Player #2 - Powered Armor Pilot
This player is the team's eyes and teeth. On top of having the best firepower and defense, the PA's scanner highlights enemies and makes their location visible through the fog. On top of seeing enemies, special enemies (EPA's, ATC Phase Units, ATC Rocketeers) have a red outline. Be a team player and call out what is attacking.

This player should be very cautious of Alma. Her daze and blindness doesn't affect you that much but she can do much worse. She can remove you from the PA, teleport you to a random area of the map and have you outside the PA or simply destroy the PA.

If you lose the PA under any circumstances, your priority one is to find it. If it gets destroyed it will spawn at a random location in the preparation phase after the current fog phase.

Player #3 & 4 Base Defenders
These players should not go far from the church and shouldn't even leave the building. They should barricade all possible gaps every preparation phase and be ready to revive anyone put into Last Stand. These are the players that can make or break a game if things go sour; stay safe, stay alive.

A very important thing to remember when playing Contractions is... there is no bleedout timer. You can shuffle around the map for the entire fog phase and not die.

What I want to know is if it's team cumulative or you yourself have to retrieve 30 crates.

Should be team cumulative, but its solo. I was in a game thinking it was team, waiting for it to pop. On wave 16 we died, finding that I had brought back 18, another person 15, 12, and 1. So now I'm somewhat frustrated.

I found this guide guys. Hope this help.

This achievement will be easiest to boost, because after Wave 9, you will be lucky to get more than 1 crate per round. what you want to do, play play with 1-3 friends who are helping on This Is Suicide! map, and just grab all the crates, you should get this during round 8. The crates appear between rounds, and 4 at a time: 3 yellow, 1 red. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

- Leave one last enemy left alive if you still need crates: ending the wave will put the count BACK TO 4, not add 4 more, so if you have 3 and need the 4th, and the wave ends, you get only 3 from that set. Doing it this way, you will finish in between or at the early part of Wave 8 (32 crates if you get them all including these)

- Don't get downed while carrying a crat

I found that doing it on the mech level was easiest, just have your friend cover you.
