Introduction
Homefront is a FPS set in the year 2027. North Korea has united with South Korea to create the Greater Korean Republic. They have overtaken the battered USA and now it’s up to a small force of "everyday" freedom fighters to help save the country. The single player is a fast paced style with an added twist of fighting on your own soil. Multiplayer has several different game types and a great ranking system to keep you interested.

Step 1: Campaign/Miscellaneous
For your first playthrough you'll want to play on the easy difficulty. Just doing the campaign achievements will net you seven achievements and 70. Playing through on easy is a perfect time to go for those pesky Iron Man achievements for not dying in a chapter. As long as you take your time and don't rush into any battles you should be able to do these as well.

That will bring your total up to 14 achievements and 245.

There are several chapter specific achievements that can all be done on easy:

  • Chapter 1 – Pistol Whipped and Give Him the Stick
  • Chapter 2 – Welcome to Freedom and Good Use of Cover
  • Chapter 3 – Let ‘em Burn and Mercy
  • Chapter 4 – David Rejected
  • Chapter 5 – Stairway to Heaven
  • Chapter 6 – Speed Demon and Safer Skies
  • Chapter 7 – Wilhelm’s Nightmare, Fatal and Tragic, and Soft Targets

You must also find 61 missing newspapters spread across all chapters except chapter 6. Doing so will unlock:

  • Chronicler
  • Archivist
  • Historian

This will bring your total to 30 achievements and 425

Step 2: Campaign Playthrough on Guerrilla
For the second campaign playthrough change the difficulty to Guerrilla. Take your time, use cover, and your teammates. When you're in trouble duck behind something to heal before continuing on. You can die as many times as you’d like, all you have to do is finish the level from start to finish and you'll earn a total of 7 achievements and another 175

This will bring your total to 37 achievements and 600.

Step 3: Multiplayer
There are a few tasks you need to perform which can be boosted:

  • Squad Commander
  • Full Boat
  • 3-Star Threat
  • 5-Star Threat
  • Medal of Honor

The remaining online achievements are Challenge and Rank related:

  • Weapon Expert
  • Vehicle Expert
  • Drone Expert
  • Expert of War
  • Over the Hill

Note that any challenges that you complete won't count if you lag out or are booted from the match.

Once all those are done you are now at 47 achievements and 1000. Congratulations!

Conclusion
The campaign will only take roughly 4-5 hours to complete, possibly longer if playing on Guerrilla. The real time consuming achievements are the online ones. They will take the most amount of dedication to complete. Overall the game is not bad, it’s fun and entertaining. Not on the same level as COD or Halo but the online play is still respectable.

Historian30
Find all 61 News Pickups in the Single Player Campaign (65) 

There are 61 "hidden" newspapers throughout the campaign. There are none in chapter 6.

Here is a guide to help locate them.

Pistol Whipped10
Kill 25 enemies with a pistol in Chapter 1: Why We Fight (6) 

As soon as the bus crashes you are told by Connor to pick up the pistol. From here, simply shoot and kill 25 KPAs and this will unlock. You can reload checkpoints if you do not get this by the end.

Give Him the Stick10
Kill 25 enemies with melee attacks in Chapter 1: Why We Fight (37) 

Simply get close enough to the enemy and melee attack them with your knife. Repeat this 24 more times for the achievement to unlock. I recommend doing this on easy and you can reload checkpoints if you do not get this by the end.

Welcome to Freedom10
Talk at least once to each inhabitant of Oasis in Chapter 2: Freedom (13) 

There are a total of eight people you can talk to:

  1. After coming down the stairs there is a man on your left. Looks to be messing with ammo.
  2. After following Boone inside the first house there is a lady ironing.
  3. Right after speaking with her talk to the lady on the couch.
  4. After leaving the house there is an elderly man straight ahead.
  5. Directly to the right of (4) there is another man to talk to.
  6. Look to your right. There is a guy walking on a stair master that’s been set up to help irrigate water.
  7. In the garden there are two people, however you can only talk to the woman.
  8. The final one is tricky. He is on the far left right before you enter the house. He is milking a goat.
Good Use of Cover10
Destroy the first sentry without taking any damage in Chapter 2: Freedom (12) 

Very early into Chapter 2 you will notice a large tower with a blue beam of light coming from it and circling. This is a sentry tower. You have to move from cover to cover (I found the left side easier) and toss a frag grenade at the fuel tank behind it.

You can use Mission Select - Scout the Sentry to do this quicker.

Mercy10
Kill 5 enemies while they are on fire in Chapter 3: Fire Sale (21) 

While you are overlooking the parking lot the truck will explode and several KPA will catch on fire. Simply take aim and kill them with the sniper, which is a one shot kill. There is one guy directly in front of you and the rest are to your right behind the sandbags. If you do not get this in one go simply restart checkpoint and repeat. This is a running total and does not need to be done in one try.

Let 'em Burn10
Don't kill any of the enemies that are on fire in Chapter 3: Fire Sale (21) 

Just do the complete opposite from the achievement Mercy and do not kill any of the KPA guys on fire. The achievement will pop right after you hear Connor ask "Who the hell is shooting?".

Chronicler10
Find the first of 61 news pickups (2) 

See Historian

Stairway to Heaven10
From the front door of the church, make it to the crow’s nest in 240 seconds in Chapter 5: Heartland (19) 

I got this without trying to go for it, so it’s pretty easy. The main guy that causes problems is the guy who sneaks out and shoots you from behind the boarded door right in front of you as you first walk up.

The rest of the enemies that pop out are pretty simple to kill and are in clear sight as you work your way up the crows nest. Get to the top and kill the last guy and the achievement is yours.

Speed Demon10
Hijack the tankers in less than 8 minutes in one life in Chapter 6: Overwatch (15) 

You'll first have to make it to the takers by flying the helicopter and taking out a few enemies along the way. Once you get to the tankers there are three you'll have to hijack. Get close enough to the door so your partners are close enough, then when prompted press to make them jump across onto the tanker. Do this two more times and the achievement is yours. This must be done without dying.

Use Mission Select: Chase for this achievement

Safer Skies10
Destroy all the SAM trucks in the level in Chapter 6: Overwatch (4) 

There are seven SAM trucks in the level; they do not appear until after hijacking the tankers. Destroy them and the achievement is yours. To make this easier press the stick down to go into thermal vision.

There are three trucks on the first road after hijacking the tankers, one is in the city on the roof that Connor tells you to take out, and the final three are in the harbor at the end of the mission; two on the left and one on the right. This can be done on easy.

 
Secret Achievements
 
Golden Gate10
Complete chapter 7 in the Single Player Campaign (9) 

See Golden Gate - Guerrilla

Golden Gate - Guerrilla25
Complete chapter 7 on the Hardest Difficulty in the Single Player Campaign (16) 

These achievements are unlocked by playing through the game. You must complete the campaign twice as the achievements don't stack. When playing on Guerrilla difficulty make sure not to rush into battle, make good use of cover, and let your AI partners do the work for you. Watch out for chapter 3 especially, it's one of the harder chapters.

Iron Man - Golden Gate25
Complete chapter 7 in the Single Player Campaign without dying or restarting a checkpoint (17) 

These can be done on any difficulty so I recommend trying for them on easy. Take your time. Watch out for frag grenades and RPG's as these are instant kills. Take cover to allow your health to fully recover, which only takes 3-4 seconds. Your AI teammates, once again, come in handy for this as well. Quitting to dashboard or starting from the final checkpoint in the level voids these achievements - they must be done start to finish.

David Rejected10
Complete the street section without Goliath taking any damage in Chapter 4: The Wall (30) 

There are eight RPG guys that are going to try and shoot the Goliath. Simply take these guys out before they can fire a shot. This can be done on any difficulty.

This starts at the "Goliath Returns" checkpoint and there may be a RPG KPA in the right corner. The achievement will pop right before the tank breaks through the wall.

Fatal and Tragic10
Jump off the Golden Gate Bridge in Chapter 7: Golden Gate (27) 

Go to mission select and pick Golden Gate. Select the checkpoint Assault Down the Bridge 1. After you take out the two RPG guys you will go past a bus on your left. There is an opening here and make sure you jump off the bridge and not the steel girder. It wasn't registering as jumping off unless I was on the concrete and jumped into the water.

Wilhelm's Nightmare10
Knock 10 enemies off of the scaffolding during the helicopter fly-in in Chapter 7: Golden Gate (49) 

In the very beginning of the level where you are being flown towards the bridge, you take control of your player. Use the grenade launcher to fire at the enemies and be sure to fire a little behind them so it will knock them off the platform. They must be knocked completely off the platform for it to count.

Soft Targets10
Destroy all vehicles using the UAV in Chapter 7: Golden Gate (5) 

Towards the end of the final mission, after the codes are rewritten for the AA guns, you will get control of the UAV. You'll be able to fire on the bridge from a drone, so simply take out the convoy of vehicles that are highlighted.
