Singleplayer: Finish every level in the game on Tier 1 Mode under par time

Tier 1 Mode is a game mode that you must complete missions under a specific time. If you die during any part of the mission, it will cause you to restart the mission. You must be connected to xbox live to play this mode. Here are some tips to help you complete this:

  • Stay back, your team will take care of some enemies, but not all of them.
  • Conserve your ammo and go for kill shots. You can't request ammo from your teammates like in normal campaign. You can rarely find a weapon, so pick your shots carefully.
  • If you are sprinting, pressing the will cause you to slide. Use this to quickly get to cover.
  • Learn to use the cover system. It will be a good amount of help while trying to get the upper hand on some enemies.
  • Take advantage of Headshots and Knife kills as they will reduce your time.
  • Also take advantage of killing several enemies (or getting several headshots) in a short ammount of time as this will reduce your time.

The Par Times for each mission are as follow:

  1. First In - 25:00
  2. Breaking Bagram - 30:00
  3. Running with Wolves... - 20:00
  4. Dorthy's a Bitch - 17:30
  5. Belly of the Beast - 25:00
  6. Friends From Afar - 15:00
  7. Compromised - 12:30
  8. Neptune's Net - 15:00
  9. Rescue the Rescuers - 28:30

This is likely the most difficult achievement in the game that people can attempt. You have to beat the 'par time' (though it's mostly generous), you get one life per attempt (no spawning back at a checkpoint), you get limited ammo (can't ask friendlies for additional ammo), personal damage takes a little longer to reduce, the HUD defaults to 'off' (but you can press up on d-pad to see it for a moment), and you can kill friendly forces which would cause the attempt to fail.

I found that this isn't all that difficult if you are focused and at least a little aggressive with advancing through the map. The par time allows for some hiding and laying low when taking bullets. It gets frustrating when getting to the end of a map only to have something happen and die resulting in at least severa

I have started this achievement but because of how long it takes i often get bored a switch it off. Its a good achivement but they should have made the conditions slightly fairer

It would be nice if they didn't have these "cut-scene" where you stop and your team talks to either command or to one another and you can walk around but your gun is hostlerd. they are cheap because the clock still runs. the worst is the ones at the end of a level where you finish your objective in time but then your squad just rambles and runs up the clock to so miss the par time

yes with out the cut_scene then your time will just be less to do in par time(no waste)

I get that it's frustrating watching the cut scenes with the clock running but they would have taken that into account when setting the par time. I'm struggling to get this achievement though.

I loved getting this achievement :)

It's difficult, which is what this game needed.

The only other difficult achievement was Fire Controller.

Last Achievement I need, I just beat the fourth mission "Dorothy's a Bitch".

So far not that hard, you just have to be careful. You can take a lot of hits before going down, but if you don't get behind GOOD cover you WILL die.

Yeah, best advice is to take your time. You've got plenty of it. The stoppage time isn't really pertinent either since in all of my successes, I would have made it easily without the stopped time.

This is the last achievement I need. I feel like its not that hard, but I just keep failing. I mean, I can't get past the first level.

Ah well, 100gs and 100% game completion are good motivators.

@12, I know what you mean by the controls in single player lacking smoothness. I definitely agree. I think, however, that this is a great campaign. I also like the multiplayer a good bit.

Easy 100G, like this achievement.

well I really don't have a problem with this achievo, even making par time isn't that hard. it's just the AI system for this single player that pisses me off. I'm constantly getting killed cuz I'll stay behind cover for like 2 minutes to make sure its safe to move up and then get killed by one of the AI that is just hiding around a corner. not to mention the freaking guys with RPGs. I've never seen a rocket fly so strait in my life. Even if the rocket doesn't hit me, if its anywhere close I always seem to die.
In my opinion, OK achievement, crappy game/AI system.

I thought this achievement would be simple until i found out you cant start from your checkpoint then i got pissed. I tried the first level and died at the very end. I hate this achievement and wont be getting it any time soon.

This was way too easy of an achievement. Hell my 6 month old son could 100% this game!

This should have be worth 30 points and fire controller should have been worth 100!

Challenging but not too hard. I liked it. I hate when people say how easy it is, just to boost their own egos.

It's very simple all the way through EXCEPT for when you reach the two huts at the very end. What I found worked the best for me is to just hang on to most of my ammo for my SAW until they send the truck through the hut, then back out and behind the back wall, and keep them from flanking on the right side. I noticed I didn't have any shots coming from behind me when I was holding off the right flank.

@17/18, you aren't helping anyone. I'm absolutely certain your 6 month old son could do no such thing. Please don't be a troll.

Belly of the Beast can be tough right at the end. I used some tips from a video walkthrough and it helped me finish it at 23:45 with only 1:01 in freeze time. I dropped my shotgun right at the start and grabbed an AK. In the village before you take on the DShK, an enemy will drop an RPK with about 600 rounds. I took that and left the AK, giving me the M249 and RPK. I used the pistol to suppress the DShK since it's a fast reload and infinite ammo.

I want to say I was around 17:00 when I started firing on the mountain after the IED blows. The two weapons I had let me just lay into the hills and get some time freezes and most were not head shots.

I used MrBr1zzo's YT video to give me an idea of where I needed to be time wise at certain parts.

I only have Belly of the Beast, and the last level left.

Belly of the Beast has glitched on me twice now, after taking out the DDSK, the dust cloud caused by the explosion stays on my screen, instead of going away. So I'm completely blind, and have to restart.

It's done this twice in a row. I'm hoping when I try it again, it'll be better, since the game would have been turned off.

The last mission is annoying cause of the guys with the RPGS, they've killed me a lot, since it only takes one shot from them to instant kill you.
