This is pretty much just another movie game, but it isn't as bad as many. It does get tedious at moments, but for the most part, it's a simple and fairly easy 1000 :gsicon: game. Each playthrough will take you anywhere between 5-9 hours, depending on how long it takes you to complete all of the sector challenges.

Introduction
James Cameron's Avatar is an extremely anticipated movie that came out on December 18, 2009. Along with any AAA movie, there's just got to be a game. Anyway, you have to do a minimum of 2 playthroughs, one as the Na'vi, and one as the RDA. There's no difficulty, so don't worry about playing it on easy or medium, etc. All the secret achievements in the game are simply for beating it, so that knocks out 15 achievements accumulating 450 :gsicon:.

Step #1: Playthrough 1 - As the Avatar
It doesn't matter which side you pick, you can either choose to stay a human or help the Na'vi as an Avatar. I would go with the Na'vi your first time around. Simply beat the game and get all the Clean Sweep achievements for the Na'vi. To access the "Sector Challenges" in your current sector, press the button and press . There are various objectives such as "Lift the Fog: Explore the map and reveal the entire map." and "Cell Samples Collection". It should only take you a few hours to beat it and complete the sector challenges for each area.

Step #2: Playthrough 2 - As the Humans
On this playthrough, play as the RDA, or humans. Complete each mission and go back and complete all the "Sector Challenges" [see step 1 for more information] and the final 7 secret achievements, as well as all the remaining Clean Sweep achievements will be yours.

Step #3: Jack of All Skills and Turn the Tide Achievements.
Do these achievements at the end of the RDA campaign by selecting continue.

Now for the Conquest achievement (Turn The Tide), what you want to do is make sure you have gotten 100% on all the missions/planets and this will give you around 95,000-100,000 credits. What you want to do when you start Conquest is use all your credits to buy 20,000+ Soliders, 95+ Mech suits and 30+ Helicopters then all you have to do is move everything to each part you wish to take over. Keep doing that and you will have 50% captured in no time as the Na'vi will tend to build more than attack.

For the Jack of all Skills achievement, what you want to do is when you have finished the RDA campaign load up a planet and select 4 skills to use (any will do). Use them and then select the Travel guy and travel to another planet. This will fill up your skills again and is much faster than waiting for them to fill up themselves. Just do that 20 times and then select the other 3 skills. Rinse and repeat until the achievement pops up.

Step #4: Go Online
There are 2 methods to completing the 150 games completed. The first is the "do nothing" method and the other is to play CTF (Capture the flag). For the capture the flag method all you have to do is get a group of people together and just run the flag from the enemy base to yours 3 times and the game will end, With a good team and a good rhythm you can knock out games within 2-3 minutes.

Although this is faster its very boring and tedious so i suggest doing the "do nothing" method. All you have to do for this is start up a private game of TDM (Team Death Match), open it to public, start it up and then just leave your 360 on for 25-27 hours and the achievement will pop as the game auto starts each game without you having to be there or if you don't want to leave your 360 on you could do it when you go to bed/work for a few nights.

All the other MP achievements are self explanatory and can all be boosted with a partner in a private match. If you need a partner please post HERE to find one.

Conclusion
In the end, this is a pretty easy game to get all of the achievements in. If you hated the story and thought it was dull, don't worry, this is a prelude and not based on the plot from the movie. This one shouldn't give you much trouble, so good luck!

Blue Lagoon Clean Sweep20
Complete all Sector Challenges in Blue Lagoon. (3) 
Blue Lagoon is for both factions. You will only need to complete it once since the game saves in a separate slot when you decide whether you wish to play as the RDA or the Na'avi. You can check your progress by pressing and then .

Lift the Fog
You need to reveal 100% of the map. This is not as daunting as it sounds. You really don't need to clear the map 100% just explore until the game tells you that you have. This is the same for all sector challenges in the game

Activate GMI or Tree of Vision - 6
GMIs are the big red computer consoles used by the RDA. Trees of Vision are the twisted tree stumps with a purple light that the Na'avi can use. Since you will be playing both in this level, you can activate either type. Either one will count towards your six, so you won't need to activate all twelve if you don't want to. They will show up as white dots on your map.

ViperWolf Culling
Kill 110 ViperWolves. They are the blue or red dog-like monsters.

Cell Sample Collection - 15
Collect 15 cells. If you are playing the RDA, you can collect them by killing enemies who then often drop yellow circles that say RDA. If you are playing the Na'avi (or avatar), you can collect them from plants that have a green glow. Just run up and press .

Experience Collecting - 37,000
You gain experience from killing monsters and plants and by finishing the missions. You must collect the required amount on each map. It doesn't matter how much experience you have collected throughout the game. During this level you will have to switch from RDA to Na'avi. Once you make the switch to your avatar you will not gain experience from killing anything until you finish the chapter. You can return to any map at any time, including after you beat the game. Simply go to either a person with a blue or gold planet above thier heads (marked on your map) and navigate to where you need to be. It will say at the bottom the percentage of challenges that you have accomplished.

You do this in conquest mode, which is activated in either the GMI or Tree of Visions. Wait until you are on the last level and go in and buy as many mechs, planes and soldiers as possible to hold in your base. Follow the tutorial and start conquering. I made about three armies and was unstoppable. Aim for areas with a low troop count whenever possible.

Get 10 kills in a row without dying. (7) 
You can boost this in a 1 vs 1 match. Any mode.
Bring On All Comers!20
Complete 150 Multiplayer games. (22) 
There is a slow easy way and a fast hard way for this one.

For the slow way you can host a team deathmatch and just leave your xbox alone. You will automatically enter each match. This will take you over 30 hours.

The faster way is to make a CTF match with as many people as you can find. The minimum one other person, but three would be better. Both join the Na'avi team and make sure you are wearing armor with good mobility. Run to the enemy flag (well flip since it is faster). One person takes the flag and captures it while the second waits for it to respawn in the enemy camp. Then they capture the flag. Rinse and repeat. Get a good system and you can knock out two minute matches.
The Enemy's Bane20
Finish a Team Deathmatch with the most kills of either team. (2) 
You can boost this in a 1 vs 1 match. Just let one keep killing the other.

Your team has to do this, not you personally. As long as the other team doesn't capture a flag, it should unlock.

As an RDA grunt, reach the end of the timer with 3 intact missiles. (2) 
Join the RDA side. Don't let the other team destroy your missiles for 10 minutes. This can be boosted in a 1 vs 1. This is a separate map from the Defend the Crystals map.
Pandora's Protector20
As a Na'vi warrior, reach the end of the timer with 3 intact crystals. (2) 
Join the Na'avi side and don't let the RDA near your crystals for 10 minutes. This can be boosted in a 1 vs 1 match. This is a separate map from the Defend the Missiles map.
