I'm guessing this will unlock once you get all other SP achievements? Like this one.

I love single player challenges. Started with SPLINTER CELL CONVICTION. Its like achvs with more achvs. Gives u lots to do!

I actually like this. The challenges in SP adds replay value to the game. Not like the game isn't worth playing through again anyway. I just beat it and I have to say I like this game more than I thought. Definitely going to try and get this!

I just checked these on the Rockstar Social Network and they are literal grinds. If you're planning on getting this, you better grab a Snickers.

Comment #12 by Valkynaz

Easy enough. As the name implies, you can just grind each challenge on a checkpoint by reloading it. Each challenge can be tracked through the main menu under "Grinds" in the Story/Multiplayer sections. Golden guns also tie into about half the challenges, so it's imperative that you hunt down the collectables as you play.

Most of the challenges have different degrees and magnitudes as you complete them, getting more tedious as you ascend from bronze to gold rank challenges.

I guess once you go through the game multiple times to get difficulty achievements you should have most of them

Comment #14 by pronto tonto

will you still have the same stats one you re-play the story on a different difficulty?

Comment #15 by gunboy27
Tuesday, May 22, 2012 @ 07:00:22 AM

@14 yeah the stats carry through even when you restart checkpoint

sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo close, just got the lounger grind complete , now just shotguns, melees, people falling, 8 more bullet cams and im done! wow, the time spent on this one alone.

Double damage is easy to grind on chapter III checkpoint 8. You'll kill about 13 goons including the last two on stairs. Then just reload checkpoint. Similar story with shotgun dues. Load the same checkpoint, get the shotgun dropped by the guy down the stairs, get some ammo on the way, go upstairs killing two guys there, through the door. You'll start another checkpoint. Switch to shotgun. You'll get about 10 kills with it and just keep reloading that checkpoint from now on.

Comment #18 by Romaudi

Wreckage, fireworks, guesswork, blowout are best achieved on chapter x checkpoint 12.

Comment #19 by Romaudi
Tuesday, May 22, 2012 @ 11:31:35 PM

Dodge brawl, artful dodger, back from the dead and cam lover are easy on chapter vIII checkpoint 5

Comment #20 by Romaudi
Wednesday, May 23, 2012 @ 08:20:24 AM

The Lounger and Take a load off also works great on chapter VIII checkpoint 5.

do you have to get the platinum level grinds or is bronze fine?

Comment #23 by Ififallx
Friday, May 25, 2012 @ 03:51:38 PM

Dude ^^^
what does all mean to you?
Your asking if bronze is fine. Obviously no. Get plat for each one. So each grind says "COMPLETED" Why do people make achievements harder to understand? I don't get it

Chapter 10 last checkpoint is a good spot to get platinum medals in shooting enemy projectiles (start the checkpoint and stay in the cover but don't kill anyone and they will take turns trowing grenades at you), destroying cars there is about 6 cars which you can shot at which also gets you the killing enemy's with explosions medal

Comment #26 by Hurricane Of 87
Monday, May 28, 2012 @ 06:00:30 PM

Chapter 5, checkpoint 13 (I think) for projectiles bro. There's one molotov every 5 seconds as opposed to half minute.
The end of Chapter 10 is good for vehicle destruction and killing enemies in explosions.

Currently grinding Chapter 8, checkpoint 5 for Dodge Brawl (Shootdodge kills)

Comment #27 by Hurricane Of 87
Monday, May 28, 2012 @ 06:26:09 PM

Finished with style
Chapter 8.5
Run and Shootdodge
5 headshots before I hit the ground

Comment #28 by Badgger
Saturday, June 02, 2012 @ 04:07:38 PM

Only three more grinds for this one. The one that takes the longest is the 'recover from Last Man Standing' 250 times..

Comment #32 by skelovic
Monday, June 11, 2012 @ 04:53:10 PM

@#20:romaudi,can you explane me what to do for "take a load off"?

Comment #33 by Skweezle II
Tuesday, June 12, 2012 @ 04:11:06 AM

#32 - Don't rush to stand up after shootdodging, just stay there on the floor and pick off any enemies you can. You can also just lay down and shoot everyone until you complete it. I got this one just playing through so it's not a difficult grind.

Comment #38 by Skweezle II
Thursday, June 14, 2012 @ 08:32:53 AM

~36 I can't rmember the chapter but it's the level in the bus terminal at the point where you shoot a gantry that two enemies are running across. They fall and die. That checkpoint reloads at the exact moment you rush to shoot it so this is quite a lot quicker to complete than you'd think

Very amusing achievement. This one is fun!

Comment #40 by jaaaaaaack13
Friday, June 22, 2012 @ 03:24:07 AM

@38 It's chapter X checkpoint 7.
It also counts the kills, if you always reload after you killed them :)

Wednesday, August 08, 2012 @ 12:08:41 PM

For Blow Out, I think Ch. 13 Checkpoint 5 might be the best one to get kills with explosives. Just use the grenade launcher where the LAW is on the left side (after you find cover for the first time), and grind some kills after you take out the vehicle.

If you know anywhere else that can grind this one faster than the place I mentioned, that'd be great.

Comment #45 by Fheran
Friday, August 10, 2012 @ 09:02:46 PM

Best place for cam lover is chapter 3 , checkpoint 12. All you have to do is shoot Passos; this may seem sick but it actually does count for a bullet cam. Just click retry and repeat as necessary.

The most satisfaction I've gotten from earning one single achievement in a long time

Comment #47 by richardlidster
Friday, October 19, 2012 @ 09:20:03 AM

after 4 play throughs the only ones i needed were melee kills, grenades shot out of the air, vehicles destroyed and blind fire kills. melees finished in about 5 minutes on chapter 6 2nd to last checkpoint and the other 3 about 20 minutes chapter 10 last checkpoint

Comment #48 by it007
Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 04:27:12 AM

Yeah some take a whole lot of time, but in the end you will have 100 gs to add and that makes all worth it to me.

Comment #49 by it007
Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 01:50:00 PM

200 Molotovs is easy at level 10 checkpoint 12, it starts in the bus where a granate is thrown at you, shoot it and then restart, worked very fast for me.

I made this video playing the theme from this game with Alice: Madness Returns... Interesting, but WARNING to younger people: There is some high pitched feedback noise that I couldn't hear because I'm old.

"WARNING to younger people: There is some high pitched feedback noise that I couldn't hear because I'm old."
LOL, very funny. I can't hear the sonar squeaks of bats anymore. :(

NB: Be careful with your save file and use Cloud with a HDD back up - I changed my controls to Type 4 online and it corrupted my file and I've lost everything! Online even says I've completed no Story stuff and has re-locked the gold weapons!
Crap game! Stupid grinding - DLC-conning achievements! Nothing to the actual game but shooting. 5/10.
