|That Coulda Gone Better||30|
|Finish the Single Player game on Hard Difficulty.||(4)|
Refer to I Need a Nap
|Kill 5 enemies with one L.E.O. shoulder bash.||(12)|
You will first use the L.E.O suit on level 6. To perform a shoulder bash press . This is very easy to get, just line up 5 creepers and shoulder bash them. Don't despair if you don't unlock this on level 6 because you can pilot the L.E.O Suit later on in the game as well. Standing by a doorway and letting enemies get in front of you is a good way of making them crowd up for this achievement.
|Make it through to the lair.||(5)|
This is story-related and cannot be missed. It will unlock during level 19.
|One Big, Ugly Motha…||20|
|Defeat the source of it all.|
This is story-related and cannot be missed. It will unlock during level 20.
|Hit 'N Run||15|
|Kill an enemy by ramming them with the Inferno GX.||(4)|
You pilot the Inferno GX on level 17. This one is really easy, just drive into the first enemy you see. Pressing will make enemies easier to spot which may help. If you don't get this on the first enemy you see there are many chances to get this later on in the level. You only pilot this vehicle on level 17, though, so make sure you get it out of the way as soon as possible.
|Destroy 100 Pods while piloting the Mantis.||(1)|
You drive the Mantis on level 19. There will be two sections where you control the Mantis: one where you will be killing cultists and bugs and the second after a cutscene. The pods are in the second section. The Mantis is a very powerful vehicle and there are around 250+ pods, so this achievement is really easy to get. In a couple of minutes of controlling the Mantis you should get very close to the 100 mark. Press to spot pods easier. To check your progress press > Extras > Player Stats > >Achievements and then find the achievement and it will have your current progress.
|Gather 25,000 total salvage.||(3)|
You can gather salvage by blowing up infected buildings, blowing up explosives/objects, collecting piles of salvage and killing enemies(After buying an upgrade). I recommend you buy Autopsy from the upgrade menu which allows you to get salvage for each enemy you kill as soon as possible. Piles of salvage give you 30-75 salvage each so check every corner for them. Please see the Salvager achievement for more info on these. You can easily get this achievement on your first playthrough if you check thoroughly for salvage piles and blow up infected buildings.
|Kill 100 enemies while in the Marauder Scout Walker.||(2)|
On level 14 you drive a marauder scout walker for the first time. I finished the first part with 80 or so kills. After you get the Family Business achievement, you pilot it again and you will easily get this achievement. You can keep restarting the checkpoint until this unlocks, but it probably won't be an issue. To check your progress press > Extras > Player Stats > >Achievements and then find the achievement and it will have your current progress.
|Kill 175 enemies while in the L.E.O. exoskeleton.||(4)|
You will first be able to use the L.E.O suit on level 6:road to Bastion. You could boost the kills here by either letting the creepers keep spawning from their pods or by reloading the checkpoint as the kills carry over. You don't really need to boost this achievement though it should come naturally because you can pilot this suit again on level 11 where you go through the Red Faction HQ. To check your progress press > Extras > Player Stats > >Achievements and then find the achievement and it will have your current progress.
|Find 200 piles of salvage.||(2)|
These salvage piles are everywhere most are out in the open but some are hidden in crates, corners, and behind objects. They look like blue cylinders and contain a large amount of salvage (30-75 salvage). There are a lot more than 200 piles throughout the game, so you should get this if you check each location thoroughly. You'll probably get this towards the end of the game, but if you are a few off after finishing the game simply replay a few levels and it shouldn't be an issue.
|Open up the secret entrance.|

|Money Well Spent||15|
|Buy out any one Upgrade ring.||(1)|
You will need 6,000 salvage to buy out the first upgrade ring. Refer to Martian Can Opener for more info on upgrading.
|All For One, One For All||25|
|Finish a 4 player Infestation game beyond wave 9 without anyone bleeding out.||(94)|
You will need four people to complete any wave past wave 9 without dying to unlock this achievement. You are allowed to get downed, but not bleed out. You have 25 seconds to heal the downed person before they bleed out.
|Finish waves 1 through 10 on any map in Infestation.||(2)|
Refer to Honorary Mason.
|Perform Revival 25 times in Infestation.||(42)|
Simply wait until a team mate is downed and then hold to revive them. They revive instantly, so this isn't hard at all. If you have a boosting partner, you can just take turns downing yourselves and healing each other and it will work for this achievement.
If you need a boosting partner, refer to this thread.
|Boom Goes The Dynamite||10|
|Kill 2 other enemies with a single exploding Berserker.||(4)|
A good level to get this achievement is on level 6. To get this achievement you must have a Beserker explode and kill 2 other enemies. These enemies are the bigger/tougher enemies that have lots of life and run and explode near you when they are low on health. When you reach the excavator and power it on, you will have to survive a massive onslaught of enemies attacking you. Two of these enemies are Beserkers which will come running at you and then explode when you hurt them enough. Just focus all of your fire on the Beserkers and don't harm the creepers and you should be able to get this. There are a lot more of these creatures throughout the game, so chances are you will get this without trying for it.
|Kill a Wraith before it re-stealths.||(5)|
You will be first introduced to these enemies on level 9. The wraith vanishes and reappears. If you don't have any strong weapons, run backwards to the weapons locker. The rocket launcher will work perfectly. Now continue along the tunnel and once the Wraith appears, shoot it and get the achievement. These appear a lot of times throughout the game, so just try this at every opportunity you get if you don't unlock it here.
|Finish waves 1 through 20 on any map in Infestation.||(3)|
Refer to Honorary Mason.
|Back At Ya!||20|
|Make an enemy kill themselves while shooting at your Shell.||(4)|
You can't buy the Shell nano power until fairly late on in the game, and you have to wait until even later on in the game so that you can upgrade the shell power so that it rebounds enemy fire back at the shooters. To activate your shell power hold and then press . As you upgrade it, the duration, size and the rebound function will unlock which makes this achievement possible and easier. This achievement can also be gained on Infestation mode.
|Listen to 40 Audio Logs.||(7)|
A guide to all of the audio log locations can be found here.
|Buy a Cheat.||(9)|
Cheats become available after you have finished the game on any difficulty. They are located on the pause menu when you start a new game +. Cheats don't disable achievements and help immensely on insane difficulty. The cheapest cheats to buy are the infinity gun bullet cheats which all cost 5,000 salvage, but I recommend you buy the Napalm Laser for your insanity run. To get more salvage simply play Infestation Mode on the higher waves.
|Finish waves 1 through 30 on any map in Infestation.||(4)|
Infestation mode is a multiplayer co-op mode comparable to horde mode on Gears of War. You can play with up to 4 people online or even by yourself. To make this achievement easier, start a survive custom game and set the difficulty to casual and wait for four people to join and then start the game up. Each wave you survive is recorded so that if you give up or lose you can restart from that wave at any time and still unlock this achievement. The more waves you survive the better the weapons you get and the harder the enemies become. It's relatively easy to beat wave 30 because the weapons you're given on higher levels are insanely powerful
|I Need A Nap||75|
|Finish the Single Player game on Insane Difficulty.||(22)|
Insane difficulty may prove to be a real challenge if you start on this difficulty on your first playthrough, so I recommend you start on easy/normal on your first playthrough because after you complete the game on any difficulty you unlock new game +. New game + allows you to buy cheats, carry over all your upgrades and weapons from your first playthrough, and unlock a powerful/funny weapon.
|What Is Best In Life?||15|
|Perform melee finishers on 25 Creepers (single player only).||(12)|
Creepers are the bugs that crawl up to you and try to melee you all the time. To perform a melee finisher it is much easier to stand still and let the creepers attack you and then press to finish them. You could also wait from them to spawn out of a pod and melee them as soon as they come out. A melee finisher looks like you stomp on their heads instead of just punching them. To check your progress press > Extras > Player Stats > >Achievements and then find the achievement and it will have your current progress.
|It's All In The Wrist||15|
|Send an enemy at least 30 meters with Impact.||(2)|
Impact is your default nano power (). A good location to get this achievement is on level 11 after the cutscene where one of your chasers gets killed and you have to kill some enemies. There is a cliff here. Position yourself so that the enemy will go flying off of the cliff and this will add a lot of distance. It may take a couple of seconds to unlock because of the long fall, but within a few tries it should unlock. You could do this with any cliff, high up place, or any open place as long as the enemy doesn't hit an object.
|Kill 5 enemies in one shot with Impact.||(4)|
Impact is your default nano power (). A good location to get this would be near the beginning of level 11. You climb up some spiraling stairs and then enter a room with two pods either side of the room. If you stand by the door way and let the Creepers line up and then press . You should get this achievement after a couple of tries. To make it easier, you can always upgrade Impact. Hold Still can also be obtained here if you stand in the middle of the room.
|Zero G War||20|
|Kill 50 Shockwaved enemies before they hit the ground.||(1)|
To use your shock wave ability you first have to buy it from the upgrade menu. Once bought, hold and then press to use it. When you use this power it will shockwave enemies into the air and they will float for a few seconds. To make this achievement easier you could just upgrade your shockwave ability to increase the floating duration. While they are floating simply shoot them with a weapon, but preferably not an explosive one. To check your progress press > Extras > Player Stats > >Achievements and then find the achievement and it will have your current progress.
|Martian Can Opener||40|
|Buy every Upgrade.||(1)|
There are a total of 34 upgrades which cost a total of 37,000 salvage to buy. You should have about 25,000 salvage after completing the game. To get the rest of the salvage I recommend you play Infestation mode. While you go for Honorary Mason you should get enough salvage to buy all of the upgrades. If you start on easy/normal first and then play on insane difficulty you should get this after you finish your second playthrough.
|Kill 6 enemies in one use of Shockwave.||(3)|
To use your shock wave ability you first have to buy it from the upgrade menu. Once bought, hold and then press to use it. Shockwave is best used when you are surrounded by enemies instead of getting them in front of you like Impact. It is vital that you upgrade your shockwave ability in order to get this achievement because your shockwave is to weak to kill enemies otherwise. Refer to Haymaker for a great location on where to get this.
|Lock And Load||20|
|Keep Berserk active for at least 21 seconds in one use.||(14)|
The berserk nano power becomes purchaseable about halfway through the game. To use it, hold and press . This achievement is nearly impossible to get if you haven't fully upgraded the berserk nano power, so upgrade it before going for this achievement. You will notice a red bar which drains on the middle of your screen when this power is activated. To replenish this bar you need to kill enemies fast. I killed about 6 enemies with the beserk power fully upgraded and unlocked this achievement.
|Send an enemy at least 50 meters with the Magnet Gun.||(3)|
Just find an open area, shoot an enemy with the magnet gun, and then aim for a far away target and this should unlock. If you're having trouble, you could re-use the strategy from It's All in the Wrist.
|Fire an enemy into another enemy with the Magnet Gun.||(1)|
Simply target two enemies with the magnet gun and make sure there's nothing in the way. They should collide and this will unlock.
|In. The. Face!||25|
|Kill one of each enemy type with the Maul.||(8)|
The Maul weapon is the sledgehammer. Below is a list of each enemy you need to kill with it.
|Finish at least one wave on each map in Infestation.||(1)|
There are a total of 16 maps. Eight are available from the start the other eight are unlocked when you reach wave 5 on each of the 8 maps. There are 8 defend maps and 8 survive maps. Survive game mode has you surviving against waves and waves of bugs while defend mode has you doing the same as survive mode, but you have to keep a building from being destroyed as well. Simply reach wave 5 on the normal maps and just complete one wave on the dark maps and this will unlock.
|Use the Magnet Gun to fling debris BACK at a Tentacle.||(2)|
You will face a tentacle near the beginning of level 12 where you have to defend the Red Faction. Wait until the tentacle is holding an object get out your magnet gun and keep tapping on the object. This achievement should unlock even if it gets close, so don't worry about having great accuracy. If you accidentally kill the tentacle just restart the checkpoint or try to get it later on on another tentacle. To prevent yourself from being hit use your shell ability.
