[x360a would like to thank echoes999 for this Roadmap]
|Defeat all the waves in any Survival map||(8)|
Aside from hard mode, this will be the hardest achievement in the game. There are 30 total waves you must complete. This is the strategy my friend and I used to get it. It might take a few times to get it down but it works really well.
|The Story Ends||15|
|Complete Campaign Mode on Normal difficulty|
The difficulty achievements don’t stack in this game so you’ll have to beat it on normal and hard. Normal isn’t too difficult and there are plenty of checkpoints to make things easier. Just beat all eight levels for this one.
|Complete Campaign Mode on Hard difficulty||(4)|
The good news is that this time around hard mood is easier. Although, not that much easier. There are more checkpoints than the last games hard mood and overall all the game seems easier. The biggest challenge will probably be the boss fights, but with some patience and trial and error you should have no problem with those eventually.
|That Is Gonna Leave A Mark||15|
|Perform 100 Machete Counter Kills|
To perform a counter kill you have to knock down an enemy’s health until they’re blinking red. Once there, wait until they attack and you see a red exclamation mark over their head. When you see it press the and you’ll perform a counter move. This is cumulative and can be done in story mode and survival. Must be done against enemies carrying a machete, otherwise it will not count.
|Perform 60 Pistol Counter Kills|
Just like the machete counters, except you have to do it on an enemy holding a gun. For these ones you don’t have to knock down their health before you can perform it. Just wait near an enemy with a gun and when they start to aim at you and the red exclamation appears press near them to perform the counter. This is cumulative and can be done in story mode and survival.
|Get 30 firetrap kills in one Survival match|
This has to be done on the church level. On the left and right side of the level are switches. Flick one of those and the corresponding fire trap will turn on. I found this to be easy enough in co-op. Have your partner either throw enemies into the fire trap or lead them there so you can turn it on. I unlocked this around wave seven after killing almost each wave enemy with it. This achievement is not cumulative so it does all have to be done in one match, otherwise you start your count over.
|Do 10 combos of 20 hits or more|
Like any other game, combos revolve around you hitting an enemy over and over without your chain being broken. It’s usually easiest to start with the shank move , and then pounce the enemy so you can get four or five more hits in. Finally use your gun to shoot other nearby enemies or pounce the next one to keep the chain going.
|Reach the zombie wave in each Survival map|
There are a total of three survival maps and for this achievement you just need to make it to round 13 on each one, as that is the zombie wave. Not very hard at all.
|Kill a Survival Boss with no traps or grenades||(1)|
This one can be kind of annoying but is pretty easy with a co-op partner. I found Shanks chainsaw and shotgun to be a good combo for the boss. Just keep your distance and constantly attack the boss, who first shows up on wave six. If he gets close roll with the button as his attacks can really damage you. If you get downed have your partner revive you. Just keep at it and don’t touch the traps or use grenades and you’ll have this in no time.
|Stay alive for 15 consecutive Survival waves||(1)|
This particular achievement can be fairly difficult. This needs to be done in survival and it’s much easier to do with a co-op partner, though I’m sure it’s quite possible solo. For this achievement you have to survive 15 waves without losing all your health and getting downed. Keep your distance from most enemies and spam your long range weapons or grenades. Make sure to heal with tequila whenever you’re at half health. On the boss round it’s easiest to use traps and shoot them from afar so you don’t take too much damage. Or if you have a co-op partner have him do most of the fighting so you can keep your health up. After round 15 you will get the achievement if you haven’t been downed.
|Buy nothing for 10 straight waves of Survival||(1)|
Another one that is easiest done with a co-op partner. For ten waves you can’t buy a single thing. If your partner buys tequila you can still drink it and it won’t count against you, so just work together and have him buy everything for the first ten rounds. Then switch out and do it for him.
|Up Close and Personal||10|
|Beat a Campaign level with no ranged attacks||(1)|
The easiest level to do this in is the first one, as it’s pretty short. Just play through the level and don’t use your throwing knives or guns at all--grenades are okay though. After you finish the level the achievement will unlock.
|And the Kitchen Sink||5|
|Find the kitchen sink and kill someone with it||(2)|
On level 7, The last resort, you will find the sink in a room with a prisoner and an enemy. It's right after you jump down from a deck. You'll see a door to the left that you need to go in to find it. Just pick the sink up and throw it at an enemy to kill them.
|Buy everything in Survival Mode|
This does not have to be done in a single session. To access them just hit on the controller and buy whatever you need. Here’s a list of the eight items needed and what round they unlock.
|Kill 100 enemies using the shovel||(2)|
Some of the big enemies carry a large shovel with them. After killing them you can pick up the shovel and use it in place of your normal heavy weapon. You will have to do this multiple times as the shovel breaks after only a dozen hits or so. This can be done in story mode and survival and is cumulative.
|Execute 150 kills with the baseball bat||(1)|
Some of the smaller enemies carry a baseball bat with them and it’s the same deal as the shovel. Kill them, pick it up and kill other enemies with it. If you perform a counter on a bat enemy it will also count toward this. Can be done in story mode and survival and is cumulative.
|The First Dozen||5|
|Kill 12 enemies|
Should be the first achievement you get. This can be done in story or survival mode.
|Kill 50 enemies with the heavy object smash|
Heavy objects are things like the sink and wheel that you find throughout the levels. Just pick them up and throw them at enemies to kill them until you hit 50. You can also use the cars located in some levels that you can push with , as they also count toward it. On level 7 you can take the sink with you through the rest of the level and kill as many people as possible as it does not break like other weaons. There should be enough to get the achievement or get pretty close.
|Rescue 50 Civilians From The Militia||(5)|
Through the course of the story you’ll come across civilians that are tied up. They are usually easy to find and out in the open. Just walk up to them and hit the to release them. This is a cumulative achievement so you will probably unlock it during your second playthrough.
|Not So Fast||5|
|Do 30 counters in one Survival match||(1)|
Counters are when you wear an enemy down until they’re blinking red. Then wait for them to attack and hit when there’s a red exclamation mark over their head. You’re better off doing this as much as possible in the first ten waves as things get a little hectic after that. This does have to be done during one session and is not cumulative. I found it was easy with a co-op partner. While one of us would be doing a counter move the other one would keep the other enemies attention and soften them up.
