[x360a would like to thank Arsenic 17 for this Roadmap]
|Have your HP reduced to less than 10%, avoid dying and recover to full HP|
*SINGLE PLAYER ONLY* This will likely be your first achievement. You must simply let your health (the white bar at the top middle of the screen) drop below 10%. Then, you must avoid dying and take cover to avoid further damage. Within a few seconds, your health will begin to regenerate. Once your health gets back to full, the achievement will unlock.
|Wield 7 weapons in a match.|
*MULTI PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you use 7 weapons in a match. You will need at least one other player and either you or your partner must be at least level 3 and have purchased the shotgun from the Armory. Whoever has the shotgun must equip it. Then load up a Free-For-All game on the Last Stand map (Time Limit set to 0). You will be picking up four of the weapons from the random weapon spawns on the map. There are four weapon spawns you need to keep checking: one in each of the bases, one in the middle lower area, and one in the middle sniper perch. Pick up whatever weapon spawns so the spot can generate another weapon (in about 30 seconds). Weapons spawn randomly, so it may take a while to get all four to spawn. If you are already maxed out on a specific weapon's ammo, you will not be able to pick it up. Equip that weapon, fire a few rounds, then reload. You will then be able to pick up the weapon from the spawn.
|Capture 3 flags without dying in a match.|
*MULTI PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you capture 3 flags in a row without dying and you need at least one other player. Start a Capture the Flag game on the Last Stand map, with the Score Limit set to 3. Have your partner stand there while you quickly capture 3 flags in a row to win the game. The only way you can die is if your partner kills you. The achievement unlocks as soon as you capture the third flag to end the game. This will also unlock the "Star Player" achievement for you as well.
|Kill a sniper with a melee weapon.|
*MULTI PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you melee another player who actively has the sniper rifle equipped. The other player will need to pick up the sniper rifle from a random weapon spawn. On the Last Stand map, the sniper rifle commonly appears first at the top spawn in the middle area of the level (sniper perch). Once they have the sniper, make sure they equip it. Then walk up very close to them and you will see the melee button appear (looks like a saw blade). Hit that button and you will instantly kill them and unlock this achievement.
|Make It Count||5|
|Kill an enemy with your last bullet.|
*MULTI PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you kill an opponent with your very last bullet and needs one other player. Make sure you have a class created in which you have a pistol. Then set-up any game type on the Last Stand map. Be careful not to pick up any other weapons. Empty out all of the ammo in the gun which is not the pistol. Then empty out the pistol ammo until you have exactly 2 bullets left. Walk up to the other player and aim at their head. Fire both remaining bullets into their skull to kill them and unlock this achievement immediately.
|Against All Odds||15|
|Kill 5 enemies in a match while under 25% energy.|
*MULTI PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you kill five enemies in a match while you are under 25% health and is the only achievement that requires two other players (in addition to yourself) to unlock. Start a Free-For-All game on the Last Stand map with unlimited Time and Kill Limits.
|Five in a row||10|
|Win 5 consecutive matches|
*MULTI PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you win 5 consecutive matches of any type and requires at least one other player. It also requires good connection, as lagging out can sometimes (but not always) reset the counter towards this achievement. Capture the Flag on the Last Stand Map with a Score Limit set to 3 is the fastest way to get this done. Just constantly sprint to collect the three flags and continue to the next game afterwards. It is best if the player going for the achievement is host. Each game can be completed in about 3 minutes. Make sure not to capture the last flag when the "Connectivity Error" is counting down on your screen or the win will not count. As soon as you finish the 5th game in a row with a win, the achievement will pop. You can exit the entire game and even do the wins on different days. You do not have to stay continuously in the game for all 5 of the wins.
|Kill a flying enemy.|
*MULTI PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you kill an enemy while they are flying through the air using a jetpack. This is easy in principle, but the problem is, to unlock the jetpack you need 9,200 gold coins. These coins are earned very slowly through multiplayer play, so slow that it would take more than 10 hours of pure boosting to earn enough coins. And this achievement is not even something you can do for yourself. You need to come across and kill ANOTHER player that has the jetpack! This leaves you with one of two options basically.
NOTE: The player with the jetpack needs to equip it after purchasing it. This is done by clicking in the bottom right corner of the picture of your character in the Armory. This will change the color of the square from red (not equipped) to blue (equipped).
NOTE ON COIN GRINDING: If you decide to take the grinding route, know that you must actually complete the game for the coins to get saved to your profile. This is a pain, because you can boost for an hour, then the server kicks you and you loose all that progress. This makes boosting next to impossible and downright annoying. If you are boosting with only one other player and they either leave or get booted in the middle of the game, you will loose you progress as well. As much as it pains me to say it, it is recommended that you forgo wasting your time and just suck it up and pay the money to get the completion if you want it.
|Hijack a vehicle after killing its driver.|
*MULTI PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you to kill an opponent that is in a jeep and then get in to the jeep and requires at least one other player. Load up a Free-For-All game on the Badlands Map. This map is basically shaped like a circle, with a two bases on opposite sides of the circle. In each base, there is a jeep (that looks like the Warthog from Halo). Have the other player get in the jeep and walk up to him. Kill the other player by shooting him a few times with a machine gun or pistol. Once the other player dies, quickly jump into the vehicle (done by walking up to it and pushing the button that pops-up on-screen). The achievement will unlock instantly.
|Be the best player during a match.|
*MULTI PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you finish a game with the most XP out of everyone in the game and will need one other player. Simply load up a Capture the Flag game on the Last Stand map. The player going for the achievement should quickly capture 3 flags while the other player does nothing. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.
|Ghost in the Machine||10|
|Kill 10 enemies with the Mech.|
*MULTI PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you get ten kills while riding in a Mech and will need at least one other player. Load up a Capture the Flag game on the Badlands Map with a Time Limit of 0. This map is basically shaped like a circle, with a two bases on opposite sides of the circle. In each base, there is a Mech (looks like a big robot). Get into the Mech (done by walking up to it and pushing the arrow button that pops-up) and meet up with the other player. Have him stand there while you kill him with the machine gun or rocket attachments of the Mech. To speed things up, take the whole operation over to the other player's base (you can tell by their color). Since it is a Capture the Flag game, they will always spawn there. After you get the 10th kill with the Mech, the achievement will unlock immediately. The kills do not need to be done in the same game, but there is no reason not to do so.
|Complete level 2 in under 20 minutes|
*SINGLE PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you complete Level 2 - Price of Loyalty in under 20 minutes. All time in the level counts from the minute you tap the screen to start the level, including black load screens, cut scenes, and retries of all checkpoints. Some tips:
You can see your time on the "Mission Complete" screen. On my first attempt of the level without even trying for this achievement, I got 26 minutes. On my second attempt, when going for the achievement, I got 18:30 minutes. I died once and had to replay a lengthy section. So this achievement is entirely do-able. See the playthrough of the mission below in a video by YouTube user GeGeMoN123 if you are stuck (NOTE: This is not a speed run video).
|Get 10 headshots with the sniper rifle in a Campaign level|
*SINGLE PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you get 10 headshots with a sniper rifle in a single mission. The very beginning of Level 2 - Price of Loyalty, is the perfect spot for this. When prompted, head into the elevator, ride it up to the tower, and pick up the sniper rifle. There are at least 12 fairly stationary enemies to snipe. The counter for this achievement seems to include body shots as well, so if you miss a head or two, don't worry. You have to be somewhat quick, as if you are too slow and both your allies die, the mission will be failed. As soon as you hit your 10th head, the achievement unlocks.
|Complete a campaign level without ever retrying|
*SINGLE PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you finish an entire campaign level from start to finish without retrying at all. Essentially this just means you cant die or pause and push "Restart Checkpoint." You will probably get this without trying while working through the campaign. The first five levels are good bets. Level 1 has a tricky defend sequence and it is quite long compared to other missions. The only potentially challenging section in Level 2 is the part where you are a gunner in the jeep. One RPG hit and you will be dead. For these reasons, it is probably best to attempt this achievement on Level 3 - Lost Ark. Just take it slow, always hiding in cover and picking off enemies when you can. Also note your surroundings as you progress since there are a few locations where you need to run and jump to avoid falling to your death.
|Kill one enemy with the sniper rifle without using the aim|
*SINGLE PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you kill an enemy with the sniper rifle without using the zoom. This is best done in the earlier levels when the enemies are almost exclusively the weakest ones. Once you get a hold of a sniper rifle and some ammo, take out all of the enemies in the area you are in except one. Then, run up to the enemy with the sniper rifle equipped. Basically you want to put the barrel of the gun into the enemy's body and shoot until they are dead. It only takes one hit with a sniper to kill most enemies. The achievement will unlock the instant the enemy dies.
|Finish a level with an accuracy higher than 60%|
*SINGLE PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you finish a campaign mission with 60% or higher accuracy throughout. This is best done on the earlier missions (not Mission 2, as it has a vehicle section) where the enemies are mostly all the same and weak. For this achievement you are going to want to be abusing the auto-aim of the game. When you click the zoom button, your gun will auto-aim right to an enemy on your screen if there is one. You should exclusively use the machine gun in most situations. This gun requires three body shots, or one headshot, to kill each enemy. Make sure to single tap the fire button to take single shots. Never hold your finger on the fire button as it will rapidly fire bullets. Zoom in, make the 3 shots to kill the enemy, and then double tap the zoom button to auto-lock onto the next enemy. Repeat for the entire level.
|Complete an entire level using only the pistol|
*SINGLE PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you finish an entire campaign mission using only the pistol. You can swap through your other weapons. Just make sure not to fire a bullet with any other gun. This is best attempted on Level 3 - Lost Ark, as there are no vehicle parts or sections that require the use of another weapon. Just go slow, picking off one enemy at a time. It takes two body shots with the pistol to kill most enemies (several more for the more powerful ones). You need to be somewhat close to the enemies for the pistol to be accurate. The achievement will unlock at the "Mission Complete" screen if you met the requirements.
|Buy all the upgrades available in the campaign mode|
*SINGLE PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you purchase all the upgrades for your campaign character. The upgrades are only available to purchase from WITHIN a campaign mission. In the Pause Menu, you will find the Military Shop on the left side of the screen. Tap the Upgrade tab. Here you can see the five upgrades that must be purchased, which cost a total of 8,280 blue credits.
|Kill at least one enemy with each weapon of the game in the same level|
*SINGLE PLAYER ONLY* This achievement requires that you kill at least one enemy with each available weapon in the game. This achievement is first obtainable on Level 6 - Eye of the Storm, in which you will first encounter the flame thrower (sitting on a blue weapon crate directly in your path of progression near the beginning of the level). When playing through the campaign, be sure to play the levels consecutively (dont return to replay any missions; always click Continue). This practice allows you to carry-over from mission to mission all of your weapons, ammo, and grenades that you collect. Through the first five missions, save a little of each ammo for all of the weapons. Once you get the flame thrower, you can begin getting one kill with each weapon. The weapons you must get a kill with include the machine gun, pistol, shotgun, rocket launcher, grenade launcher, sniper rifle, and flame thrower. It is not confirmed as a requirement for the achievement, but you should also attempt to get kills with both the frag grenade and remote mine (run up to an enemy and throw this at their feet, it will pop up and explode if they are close to it). Grenades can be cycled just like weapons, by swiping over the equipped one. Be sure you don't die after getting a kill with a specific weapon as you will have to redo it if you did not reach a checkpoint. The achievement unlocks at the "Mission Complete" screen.
|Complete the campaign mode|
This achievement is awarded when you complete the single player campaign. There are 10 missions total, the last of which is only the final boss battle. The campaign starts out very easy, but gets significantly more challenging towards the end levels, where you constantly get bombarded with waves of strong enemies. It is in these levels that the Paralyze power (Lightning Bolt above and to the right of the fire button for the gun) becomes very useful to freeze enemies. With a little perseverance, you can get through the campaign in around 5 to 8 hours.
