Introduction:
Welcome to the world of Mindjacking. This is a place where getting all 50 achievements and 1000 is all possible in 15 - 25 hours. Mindjack is a 3rd person action shooter game and requires a lot of getting used to due to the sheer fact that this game is like nothing else. I gave the game a 4/10 difficulty because the game was relatively easy to achieve 1000. A lot of the achievements are very simple and a few may piss you off but they are all easy. All the achievements are self explanatory but I will try and simplify them for you. There is no in game achievement checklist so you just play until the achievement pops.

This game has no actual difficulty option. The difficulty is in the form of Plug-ins. Plug-ins are like perks that can help or hinder you. When you set your Plug-ins, if you are the host, you can set a Rule plug-in that will change the amount of time required to get a health regeneration. If you set the Glide plug-in your health regains faster. If you set the Berserker plug-in then your health will regain slower. If you set the Demigod plug-in then you health will regain even slower. You will have to change to the Berserker and the Demigod for 2 different achievements. The Host is the only one who can set Rule Plug-ins.

It may help to look through the entire guide to see what is done in all game types! All kills and any achievement needing more than just what could be gained in one game are all cumulative across Host Portal and Hacker Portal.

I would recommend playing this game with a friend so you can help each other gain the MIND JACKER and for the BLUE COAT (5 wins), BLUE HELMET (20 wins), and BLUE BLOOD (50 wins) achievements. Remember if you are host you are not considered a blue hacker.

Step 1 - Single-player or Host portal:
Play the story. From the main menu you have to play the Host portal to play your single player. If you play from the Hack portal then you will not receive the completion of the story achievements. If you do not have Hack portal yet just start the game and get a little into the game and you will automatically gain access to Hack portal in the main menu. You will get to a part in the story when you will be prompted to make your game closed or open for other people to join. I would advise you to keep the game closed unless you have a friend wanting to play or you want a possibility of a challenge. If you make the game open then other players may join your game and play against you. If you closed the game and want it open or vice-versa, then hit start and go to the Host portal menu. From the Host portal menu you can change the setup. If you want the game open then make private slots ZERO and hacker limit to no. if you want it private then make private slots FIVE and hacker limit to no. If you leave the game open or have a friend join you throughout the game you may acquire the MIND JACKER achievement, which requires you to host and have someone else in your game for half of all scenes in the game. That is 15 scenes out of 30 and it only works in CAMPAIGN.

Play the game once all the way through. Occasionally go back to the Host portal menu to see new plug-ins you have acquired. After you play the game once you will have become a hacker level 30-40, depending how many times you redid a mission(s), and don’t forget to aim for head shots since they give extra XP. When you level up you will see on the right side of the scene a notification that you have acquired a new art or rule with a picture of the new item. I would advise you wait until you have acquired a cow looking picture as a rule (it’s a yellow picture). When you acquire this ability wait until you finish a scene and it will ask you to Continue scene? Hit the and this will through you back to the Host portal menu. Then you can change your plug-ins by hitting  and changing the Rule and your own plug-ins. You can then continue the story.

Step 2 - Single-player or Host portal clean-up:
Now you will need to go to scene play and replay 2 out of 4 scenes and equip specific Rules to your game. The name of scenes are above the picture of the scene.

Step 3 - Multi-player or Hack portal:
If you have finished the game you should have all the single-player related achievements and maybe a few others. You can now join the online community. Now is when you will need to know someone or just join random lobbies until you get all the kills required and game win required achievements.

If you know someone these achievements will go much faster. If you did not have your game open from the very beginning of the game you may not have gotten the MIND JACKER achievement. You can try and leave your game open and hope someone joins in and plays with you or against you for at least 15 of the 30 total scenes so you can get the achievement (only works in CAMPAIGN). You will need to join a game and complete a few areas as a blue player helping the host to get the achievements up to BLUE BLOOD (50 wins). Every scene has about 3 sections in each and you get 1 win for each section.

Then you will need to join a room and play as a red hacker and get all the achievements up to RED DEVIL (50 wins). If you easily want the red hacker and the GATEKEEPER achievements then the way I recommend if a friend hosts a scene in the scene selection on scene 1-0 and the host invites you to join and he starts the level and pretty much stands there and takes the bullets and dies. This will give you 1 kill as a red hacker (watch out because the Rebecca may revive Jim) and if you kill the Rebecca then wait for the timer and when blue loses you get 1 red hacker win. By the host doing this for you, he also gets 1 extra person counted toward his STAR achievement (which means he will get hacked 50 times already).

Also if you need these kill related achievements (GATEKEEPER, I KNOW KUNG FU, GUN WHEEL GURU, STREET RIPPER, MURDEROUS MACHINE, MOWER MAN, SCRATCHER, HOTHEAD, COMBO KING, SHIELD, and HEAD CASE) it is best done with a friend so you can control a specific body or robot and have you friend stand somewhere so you can shoot or come to you and die by you so you can get the kills required. This must be done in Scene Selection due to the fact that when you lose in campaign it does not count for the hack-ins by other player because they already hacked-in. When you lose in Scene Selection it requires all player to hack-in again and each hack-in will count. For example: you host and play a chapter that has the specific unit and have a friend play as red and stand in the line of fire or get attacked by you (This does not need to be done in one game or in one life). You will easily hit level 50 before you get the STAR achievement.

To finish the game you will need 100 people join your host. You can start a completely open host on a level and just stand there and allow people to join and quit until the achievement pops You can also have a friend join your room by going to his friends list and joining your session in progress as long as he spawns over you and then quits and then rejoins again.

x360a would like to thank A 360KID for this Road Map.



MIND HACKER5
Mind Hack successfully for the first time. (1) 

Story related and cannot be missed. This is obtained through the tutorial.

 

HONORARY CITIZEN20
Mind Hack 100 citizens. (1) 

This is obtained by hacking the minds of any humans. It will be easy if you play a lot of Hack Portal. After you get 100 the achievement will pop.

 

NEWBIE5
Reach Level 5. (1) 

See "Guru".

 

BERSERKER20
Equip the “BESERKER TIME” PLUG-IN and clear “DESTRUCTION SITE” or “STEEL GIANT”. (2) 

This achievement requires you to be level 18 and it requires you to play either Destruction Site scene #08-1 or Steel Giant scene #09-1. I would advise you doing Destruction Site because this scene does not have an end boss. This can and should be done in Scene Selection.

 

DEMIGOD30
Equip the “DEMIGOD TIME” PLUG-IN and clear “HEADQUARTERS” or “DOORWAY”. (3) 

This achievement requires you to be level 30 and it requires you to play the either Headquarters scene #10-2 or Doorway scene #11-1. I would advise you doing Doorway because this scene does not have an end boss. This can and should be done in Scene Selection.

 

ARTIST30
Obtain all PLUG-INS. 

This will require you to be level 46 and does not need the downloadable plug-ins.

 

HEAD CASE20
Take out 30 enemies with head shots. (1) 

You are required to kill or down 30 enemies with head shots. You will know if you got one by the picture of the enemy that you killed or downed which will be a picture of a head with crosshairs on it. By holding you can aim and keep your reticle small.

 

COMBO KING30
Defeat 10 enemies in a row using attack combos. (2) 

This can be done on the first mission, scene 1-0. Just try to get close to an enemy and tap  until he dies. If you kill an enemy when he was down it does not interfere with the 10 Combos in a row. Also if you die with Jim, switch to the Rebecca and try to revive Jim and go back on the offensive with your melee kills. When you see the floating robot you can try and hide until your computer kills it or run by it and go for the humans behind it.
This can be done with the help of a teammate, just let him/her bring the enemies to you while you melee each one.

 

HACKER20
Reach Level 30. 

See "Guru".

 

GURU40
Reach Level 50. (1) 

Reaching level 50 in this game is easy enough. Just kill enemies, recruit allies, and aim for the head for more points.

 

ARTISAN5
Equip a PLUG-IN for the first time. (1) 

This achievement requires you to be at least level 2 and exit your game and return to the Host portal menu and equip a plug-in. To do this be in the Host portal menu or Hacker portal menu and press and then press  on a selection in the plug-ins menu and equip the ability you want.

 

BIRTH5
Experience the wonder of birth as a Wanderer. (1) 

Story related and cannot be missed. This is obtained through the tutorial.

 

CONTACT10
Successfully make contact with Rebecca at San Mira Airport. (1) 

Story related and cannot be missed. Just follow your contact at the airport.

 

STAR40
In Host Play, get hacked into by over 100 Hackers. (11) 

To get this achievement you can do a few things. You can start a completely open host on a level and just stand there and allow people to join and quit until the achievement pops (and you can have a friend join your room by going to his friends list and joining your session in progress as long as he spawns over you and then quits and then rejoins again).You will get a lot of the 100 hacks out of the way if you do this the short way to get 50 wins for the "Red Devil" achievement for a friend.

This must be done in Scene Selection due to the fact that when you lose in campaign it does not count for the hack-ins by other players because they already hacked-in. When you lose in Scene Selection it requires all players to hack-in again and each hack-in will count.

 

SHIELD30
10 people engaged as bullet shields get defeated. (1) 

An enemy engaged as a bullet shield is when you hold him as hostage and shoot over his shoulder. Just get close to an enemy and when the screen tells you to engage, HOLD and you may hold him. Now you just have to let him get shot and go down and you get 1 bullet shield. (When they go down it gives you a picture of a body with arms wide open on the left side) You can also run into and enemy while holding and it will engage him as a shield also. This can be boosted with a friend by having him shoot the bullet shield or be the bullet shield. Remember that when you grab a non-computer enemy, he will have the option to escape from your grip!

 

BLUE COAT5
Win 5 times as a Blue Hacker. 

See "Blue Blood".

 

APPRENTICE GATEKEEPER5
As a Red Hacker, hack into an enemy and win. 

See "Red Devil".

 

GATEKEEPER20
As a Red Hacker, successfully defeat 50 Mind Hacked enemies. 

This achievement will require you to join an online game as a red hacker and kill any non-computer enemy. You can also find a room where there is one person and you join with a friend and kill your friend. If you easily want this achievement then the way I recommend is if a friend hosts a scene selection on scene 1-0 and the host invites you to join and he starts the level and pretty much stands there and takes the bullets and dies this will give you 1 kill as a red hacker.

 

GUARDIAN20
As a Blue Hacker, successfully defeat 50 Mind Hacked enemies. 

For the "Guardian" achievement you must join an online game and play as a blue hacker and kill a red hacker. If you’re the host player, then you cannot get this achievement due to the fact that you are not a blue hacker. With a friend, find a game with a people and have yourself on blue and have your friend play as red and have him stand still while you kill him. It helps if you join a game with only 1 person so there is not a lot of bullets flying.

 

RED FLAG20
Win 20 times as a Red Hacker. 

See "Red Devil".

 

RED DEVIL50
Win 50 times as a Red Hacker. (1) 

All of these achievements will require you to join a room and win as a red hacker. If you want this achievement easily, then the way I recommend is to have a friend hosts a scene in the scene selection on scene 1-0 and the host invites you to join and he starts the level and pretty much stands there and takes the bullets and dies. This will give you 1 kill as a red hacker. Watch out because Rebecca may revive Jim and if you kill Rebecca wait for the timer to end and blue loses. You then get 1 red hacker win.

 

MIND JACKER100
Clear half of the scenes with Hackers present. (2) 

If you leave the game open or have a friend join you throughout the game you will acquire this achievement, which requires you to host and have someone else in your game for half of all scenes in the game. That means you will need a hacker in 15 of the 30 scenes and this only works in Campaign.

 

BLUE HELMET20
Win 20 times as a Blue Hacker. 

See "Blue Blood".

 

BLUE BLOOD50
Win 50 times as a Blue Hacker. 

This must be done when you hack into someone’s game, REMEMBER the host cannot get this because he is not considered a blue hacker. You will need to join a game and complete a few areas as a blue player, helping the host so you can get this achievement. Every scene has about 3 sections in each and you get 1 win for each section. You can acquire this from joining a friend and helping him through the campaign which can help get him the "Mind Jacker" achievement.

 

RED CAP5
Win 5 times as a Red Hacker. 

See "Red Devil".

 

BLUE HACKER5
As a Blue Hacker, defeat a Mind Hacked enemy for the first time. 

See "Guardian".

 

STREET RIPPER30
Mind Hack a Titan and defeat 10 enemies. (1) 

Titans are units that are giant Gorillas. This simply requires you to mind hack a Titan and kill 10 enemies with the button. This can be done with a partner so you don’t get shot. He stands there and you melee him and let him bring another guy for you to melee.

The levels a Titan are found on are: 02-2 and 10-0.

 

GUN WHEEL GURU30
Mind Hack a Gun Wheel and defeat 20 enemies. (1) 

A Gun Wheel is a little rolling enemy that has guns that shoot. This simply requires you to down a Gun Wheel and mind jack it. This unit is probably the hardest to get the 20 kills with due to the fact that its health is very low and should be done with a partner so you don’t get shot, he stands there and you shoot him and let him bring another guy and you shoot him again.

The best level a Gun Wheel is found on is: 02-2. There is another scene but this has the best success rate.

 

MURDEROUS MACHINE30
Mind Hack a Quick Draw and defeat 10 enemies. (2) 

A Quick Draw is an enemy who has two mini-guns on each side that rolls on 3 wheels. This unit is not the one with the giant shield, that unit does not have guns. You must down one then mind jack it then use its guns to get 10 kills. This machine has a lot of health and a good amount of firepower so you may get 1 kill each time you use one. Again you can hack one and let a friend stand there as you shoot him.

The levels a Quick Draw is on are: 02-2 and 03-0. There are others but these are the best.

 

MULTI-TASKER30
Mind Slave 4 enemies at once. (1) 

This requires you to mind slave 4 enemies, meaning when they are on the floor with a little symbol on them. When in range hit the button to mind slave them. You can get this anywhere but the first scene #1-0 is probably the best. If you don’t have enough energy then just wait a few seconds and it will recharge.

 

MEDIC15
Heal 20 people. 

Simply put, just revive an ally that has a Medic symbol on them. To heal an ally you have to hit the  button when in range. This can be done either when you revive the main two characters when playing as blue or a downed soldier if you play as red.

 

SCRATCHER30
Mind Hack a Swarmer and defeat 10 enemies. (1) 

A swarmer is a unit that looks like a small monkey with guns on their backs. This is an easy one because on the scenes the swarmers are found on, there is a swarm of them that show up that you can shoot. Hence the name Swarmer. Again you could let a friend help you but it’s not necessary.

The best levels for swarmer kills are: 06-1 and 07-2. There are others but these are the best ones.

 

HOTHEAD5
Defeat an enemy within 1 second of them being Mind Hacked. 

This achievement requires you to shoot another player (ie a friend) within one second when they enter a body. This can be achieved when you are hosting and other people join, you just have to shoot the person they hack the second they hack into one.

 

RECEPTIONIST5
In Host Play, be hacked into by a Red Hacker for the first time. 

This is simple enough, just have your game open or invite a friend and if they join red team you will get the achievement.

 

RED HACKER5
As a Red Hacker, defeat a Mind Hacked enemy for the first time. 

See "Gatekeeper".

 

PUPPET MASTER30
Successfully Mind Slave 255 times. (1) 

This achievement is cumulative over Host or Hack portal (You can only do this when you’re on blue team) When an enemy is down, just get within reach and hit the button to mind slave them. They will now fight for you. When you get enough the achievement will pop.

 

MOWER MAN30
Use a Finishing Blow on 50 damaged enemies. (1) 

When an enemy is down and you don’t have enough energy or you just don’t want to fight them, you can go to them and finish them off with the button. After you kill 50 downed enemies this achievement will pop.

 

I KNOW KUNG FU30
Defeat 100 enemies using Attack Combos. (9) 

This requires you to be in front of an enemy and press the  button to attack them with a melee hit. This will probably be one of your last achievements unless you are working with a friend because getting in front of an enemy is very dangerous.
