Iron Brigade

Iron Brigade Achievements


Completed a mission while wearing the uniform of an elite PSI agent.  

This is composed of the Psi Goggles obtained from completing the Challenge for Emplacement Kills and the Raz Sweater obtained from completing the Challenge for Scrap Collected. These are both Personal Challenges, not Regiment Challenges.

To complete the Emplacement Kills Challenge you'll need 2,500 kills solely from Emplacements. This is easiest farmed on the mission 'Oasis'. Use a Chassis that has two Heavy and two Light turret emplacement slots. The map is made up of four lane ways.

The reasoning behind grinding on this mission is that it has the largest volume of Knobs. They will die in as little as one bullet sometimes. In front of the objective you will want to place six Machine Gun emplacements placed in two rows. This will cover the two lanes in the middle. As for the the outer two lanes you will want to place a Mine Dropper on each.

Mine Droppers are hidden emplacements so Monovisions will walk straight past them. Because of this Knobs will roll straight on the mines and head for the Machine Gun emplacements in the middle. Other enemies will walk over them in groups and wipe themselves out.

There is only one wave in which your emplacements may become overwhelmed if they are not sufficiently upgraded, it involves a lot of Knobs and a lot of Aerials. Be sure to maintain this volume of turrets and resist the urge to shoot. Using this method should net 300 - 350 kills each mission for Emplacements.

To complete the Scrap Collected Challenge you'll need 25,000 Scrap. This is easiest farmed on the last mission of the act 'Pacific' called 'Farnsworth'.

Equip a chassis with two Support Emplacements and some sort of long range weapon to defeat the boss with. Equip a Collection Prong, the higher tier it is the better. Collection Prong emplacements are also a hidden emplacement so Monovisions are oblivious to it. Because your chassis is primarily a Support role, emplacements will be cheaper to buy and upgrade.

Once it starts, defeat the first two forms of the boss straight away but leave it sitting on the last form. During this form the boss will cause lightning storms very frequently. During these lightning storms 100 - 200 scrap is dropped all around the level. Place the Collection Prongs everywhere you think is necessary to cover the entire island you are standing on, upgrade as you wish.

You will be attacked by Monovisions constantly so kill them to boost scrap. When playing in single player it is actually impossible to die, when you lose all your health a quick time event will pop up asking you to tap either , , or to regain health. As long as you do not kill the boss, you can sit here forever. Using this method it is entirely possible to collect 2,000 scrap every ten minutes.

Once both items are unlocked, complete a single mission while wearing them. It is possible to complete the boss mission of the first act 'Europe' in 30 seconds with a good Trench set-up.

I was at Pax East this year and got to play this game. Talk to the developers and they mention we might see some old characters through wearing the hats, so I'm guessing that's how you can get this.

@zombicida: my guess is that once we get to like level 15/20 or whatever we can either buy the outfit or it will be in a loot box. i mention the buying aspect because i just got level ten and a suit/tophat became available. they were pretty expensive too, i remember the hat was 10000 and i think the suit was 40000 (dont member for sure)...

To get this achievement you must finish the scrap collection personal challenge for the psi agent jacket and the personal challenge for emplacement kills for the hat. You need 25,000 scrap and 2500 kills. Once the items are unlocked equip them and beat a level.

Couple of Raz sightings lately, namely this and Alice. Hopefully it'll amount to something. Sequel would be nice, or even just a port of the original to XBLA with achievements would be fantastic.

@Icarus: i think it may be different for us all if that is how you got it. i dont remember when i got my psi goggles but i know i have all the personal challenges done except the mission count. and like i said the only thing i have is the goggles. from that my guess is that it is different for us all....

Me and my friend have been grinding levels for scrap ever since this game had came out and im still about 50% on the challenge that it takes to unlock the uniform.

A good level to grind salvage + emplacement kills is the Knob level in Africa. You'll also come out with a few Gungnir snipers, which will be useful in the fight against Vlad if you want to go for Gold.

I wish Double Fine would come out with a Psychonauts game with a Trenched Achievement
instead... *sigh* :( Don't get me wrong, Trenched is awesome, but can you
imagine how sweet a current gen Psychonauts game would be?!

@ #13, they already imported the original Psychonauts to XBLA, but it's just one of those cheap "original xbox" ports. No HD, no new features, nothing. Now that Double Fine is almost finished with their plan for four downloadable titles, I'm REALLY hoping to see a new Psychonauts emerge. The first one is still one of my all-time favorite games, and a sequel on the 360 would be my dream come true.

So basically to get this you have to max out the personal challenges for emplacement kills and scrap collected.

Just a note for people, you CAN die on the last mission. I have tried multiple times to confirm this. Take a repair crane with you and you will be fine.

@22 Thank you for confirming my belief. Either this guide was mistaken or they patched this exploit so you can now die during the final mission.

You will definitely need a repair crane to make this guide work now. Follow the guide, but then build a repair crane way in the back (near the island with the single palm tree), sit next to it and build machine gun emplacements around you to deal with the enemies so you can just AFK.

Yes, you will get hit by the lightning strikes because you're sitting still, but I used the highest level repair crane so it would repair me to full health after they hit. Just check on your machine guns once every ten minutes and rebuild the ones that may have been destroyed by enemy units (trust me, you'll have plenty of scrap to build more).
