Step 1: The campaign playthroughs
Note: Most campaign achievements behave glitchy - this guide will try to to give you hints and pointers to have as few problems as possible... unfortunately this is still not a 100% guarantee.
Note 2: Play on the lowest difficulty except for your third playthrough. Do not skip the credits at the end of the game or some achievements might not unlock.

Step 1.1: First playthrough
Achievements: Survivalist, Real Time, Interval-Achievements, Medic!, Bullet Sponge, Environmentalist
Your first playthrough should have the goal to memorize most of the campaign and get familiar with the game mechanics. While it may sound harsh to go for Survivalist and Realtime on your first run, this really helps to build up your abilities crucial for beating the game on extreme (see Note below). The only achievement you have to keep an eye on is Environmentalist as all the others will unlock automatically or over time.
Note: If you accidentally activate SloMo or die quickly hit the guide button and go to the dashboard as this will (in most cases) still enable you to get the achievements - simply reloading a previous save or quitting to the main menu will not work though.

Step 1.2: Second playthrough
Achievements: Ammo Hog
Your second playthrough should focus solely on Ammo Hog. If you feel amitious enough you can try to go for No Juice as well but keep in mind that less SloMo means a harder time rushing your enemies and you need to get in close for the melee kills - less health means possibly having to waste ammo on the ghosts in the last intervals. Use this playthrough to familiarize yourself with the SloMo function.
Note: There are a few places where it is inevitable to shoot - in those cases use your Pistols or the Type-7 if you have it. Go for headshots.
Note2: Dying or reloading seems to count as double ammo. Employ the guide-button trick again. Moreover shotgun shells count as multiple rounds while the MOD-3 seems to glitch the achievement completely - Grenades on the other hand do not seem to have an impact.

Step 1.3: Third playthrough
Achievements: Fearsome, Fearless, Explorer, Exterminator, Intel, Explosives Expert, Slow Jo, Vermin Badge, Suicide King
By now you should be familiar with the campaign and the controls, so now is the time to switch the difficulty to extreme. Since you have to be careful about every enemy it's only reasonable go for the collectible-achievements as well as Exterminator on this run. The other achievements can be done along the way without much effort.
Note: Tips for beating extreme are (i) use cover! a lot! (ii) use SloMo! never pick a fight with a drained SloMo-bar! (iii) employ the right weapons for the right situations
Note2: Exterminator can be quite a hassle. Look here for some tips.

Step 1.4: Fourth playthrough
Achievements: No Juice, anything that did not unlock the first time
The last playthrough is basically for the remaining No Juice achievement since that somehow does not mix well with the other achievements. Furthermore it is intended to get any achievements that did not unlock on a previous attempt (and believe me the chances for that are high).
Note: The guide-button trick still works if you accidentally picked up a booster.


Step 2: The Instant action maps
Since you are now almost a F.E.A.R-veteran these 2 achievements should not pose much of a problem. Employ the same tactics as you did for beating the campaign on extreme and don't be afraid to spend first aid kits or ammo. If you still have problems, a video-walkthrough can be found here.
Note: Unfortunately these achievements are glitchy too. To be on the safe side, play through the instant action maps in order and offline.

Step 3: Multiplayer achievements
The only thing that is left now are the multiplayer achievements which must all be done in ranked multiplayer games. All achievements are obtainable with only one other person, use the achievement trading thread to find a partner.

As far as the achievements themselves are concerned focus on the weapon achievements first. Regarding the weapons that you already come equipped with it is fastest to start a CTF-match on rubble and keep spawn killing your partner (the ideal spot for this is to wait in front of the door leading to the flag-room and your partner will spawn in the courtyard next to you - just keep your distance to the spawn point). You can also get Belly Gunner and Sapper on that map.
For the "special" weapons play Death match games on Campus as this map holds all the missing weapons and is easy to navigate. In addition, remember to go for the 150 headshots over the course of boosting the weapon achievements.

Once you are done with these finish up the rest of the multiplayer achievements (Demolitions Expert, Team Victory, Fearless Flagman, Noob and MP100/1000). For a quick way to gain games played start up Elimination matches on High Tech and have one player blow himself up with the nearby fuse box.

Survivalist150
Complete the Campaign on any difficulty without dying. (18) 

For this achievement, be as careful as you can, take cover where ever you can, and be sure you don’t stand near anything that can explode so the Special Forces won’t blow them up and kill you. The only real danger is Alma and her Ghosts. Make sure you have a good supply of health in the final levels, and you should be able to survive their attacks. Just don’t let Alma touch you. A single touch will take you down.

Fearsome100
Complete the Campaign on Extreme difficulty. (5) 

Simply complete the game on the hardest difficulty. Use cover a lot, and move slowly. SloMo is your best friend.

No Juice65
Complete the Campaign on any difficulty without using any boosters. 

To get this achievement, don’t pick up anything that will boost your Health or SloMo Percentage and you'll obtain this achievement.

Real Time65
Complete the Campaign on any difficulty without using SlowMo. (6) 

Simply dont use SlowMo at all during the game.

Fearless Flagman75
Successfully capture 50 flags in ranked CTF or SlowMo CTF games. (6) 

The best map for quick flag captures is Rubble. Coordinate this with the need to get 5 CTF and 5 SloMo CTF wins for the Team Victory achievement.

MP 100075
Participate in 1000 ranked Multiplayer games of any type. (31) 

Can be boosted with one other player. Create a Ranked Elimination match and set the max number of players to 2. Try and pick a map that is 2-6 players (they seem to be smaller maps). Once you create the match have your boosting partner search for your match. When they join the lobby start the match. It only takes one kill to end the match, and if you keep choosing the same map it loads faster. It takes about 2 minutes per match which seems to be faster then any other game type.

Multiplayer Victory75
Win any ranked Deathmatch, SlowMo Deathmatch, or Elimination Multiplayer game. (7) 

This is an easy achievement, Simply play a DeathMatch game and have the most kills to obtain this.

Fearless35
Win the Campaign on any difficulty except Low. (2) 

Beat the game on Medium to obtain this achievement.

Explorer35
Find every Health Booster and Reflex Booster in the single player campaign. (2) 

For this achievement, go into every room you can and pick up anything you can that way you'll make sure you pick them all up to award you the achievement. Many of them are hidden well, so look everywhere. There are even some at the very end of the campaign, so as you are running for the exit, be sure to look closely.

Exterminator35
Kill every enemy in the Campaign. (4) 

Simply don’t leave a single enemy alive in the campaign! This is harder than it sounds. Several enemies are locking doors and running away, and you’ll need to kill them before they can leave the area. Also, all of Alma’s Ghosts explode on contact with you. You will need to shoot them all, and not allow any to hit you.

Ammo Hog35
Win the Campaign using less than 500 rounds of ammo. (4) 

Make sure you use the Penetator for a Melee weapon and Pistol to shoot (only when absolutely necessary). Also, run past any Heavy Armor and Mech you can – which is almost all of them. Use SlowMo when ever you can that way you can Melee the enemy without having to worry about them running for cover.

No Fear35
Win every Instant Action map on Extreme difficulty. (2) 

Pretty self explanatory, Simply complete all Instant Action maps on Extreme difficulty.

Demolitions Expert35
Kill 200 enemies with the N6A3, AT-S or M77 in any ranked Multiplayer games. 

Simply grab one of the grenades or mines named in the achievement title and use it until you get the achievement.

Dead Eye35
Kill 150 enemies with Headshots in any ranked Multiplayer games. 

This is actually pretty easy to obtain. The reason I say its easy is because when people are running around trying to shoot you, sometimes they end up crouching. When they crouch you'll pretty much shoot them in a head awarding you a headshot. You can also get headshots with melee attacks.

Initiation5

See "Secret Facility"

Intel5
Gather every phone message and lap top in the Campaign. (5) 

For this achievement go into every single room looking at all laptops and phones, if you can interact with it, push X to obtain the info. Once you gather the last message or file, you'll be awarded the achievement. Once again, look carefully. Some are not so obvious.

Explosives Expert5
Kill 3 or more enemies with a single N6A3, AT-S or M77 in the Campaign or Instant Action. 

Simply use one of the grenades and go into a group of enemies, make sure there's at least 3-5. The best place for this achievement is in Interval 8, just before you face the Heavy Armor with the rocket launcher. A van crashes through the door and four enemies pour out. Hit one of them with the grenade and the others will die from the splash damage.

Environmentalist5
Kill 10 enemies with barrels, fire extinguishers or fuse boxes in the Campaign or Instant Action. 

When ever you see enemies around something explosive, shoot the explosive to kill them. When you have killed 10 enemies this way you will be awarded the achievement.

Slow Jo5
Kill 5 enemies with one SlowMo use in the Campaign or Instant Action. 

In the room where the first controller turret camera is, don't use the camera. Go over the counter and into the room with the soldiers. There should be a group of 5 that enter the room. Toss a grenade, active slo-mo instantly, and Melee those that live when the grenade hits someone. You'll need all boosters for slo-mo up to that point, as it's hard to do. But time it right and it can be done. If you fail, kill yourself and you'll load the checkpoint right before that spot.

Medic!5
Use 50 Medkits in the Campaign or Instant Action. 

See "Bullet Sponge"

Bullet Sponge5
Use 50 armor vests in the Campaign or Instant Action. 

To obtain these two achievements use armor vests when ever you can, and use medkits when you see fit.

Feared5
