This is a pretty short and relatively easy FPS. The story is only about 3-6 hours, but it may take you a little longer on your first run through because some of the objectives are a pain to spot and the objective marker is less than helpful at times. The difficulty, even on hard, is comparably easier than the Call of Duty games on veteran, however this game can require the same patience and has a few places that can make you want to pull your hair out. Shotguns will be your biggest nightmare, as they will normally kill you almost instantly, however once you learn the area that they will be, you can breeze through most of the game. Occasionally your screen will turn all white, that is you failing an objective (i.e. the person you are supposed to protect died) or if you get shot in the head... tough luck pretty much, especially in the beginning part of the Llebo level while escorting the prisoner to the camp. The final boss can be a huge pain trying to fight fairly, however, you can just wait behind cover and once he gets close, jump out and knife him (click the ) repeatedly until he dies.
Part 1- Campaign:
I recommend doing at least two play throughs, one on hard for the complete all missions and complete the game on hard achievements and one on normal for The Real Deal (complete the game on normal without dieing) achievement. However, the second playthrough does not have to be in order for the achievement. I find it easier to just do them in order as to not miss any, but you can do them in any order from the Mission Select screen. The game looks at each individual section of a level, so if you die simply quit out and use Mission Select to go back to the part right before dieing. Also, The Real Deal must be done all on one difficulty, you cannot mix and match levels on both difficulties.
Part 2- Online Player Matches:
Most of the online can be done in player matches (except for the ones that state Ranked Matches, pretty self explanatory) with one other person. It is best to find a reliable boosting partner (or con a friend into doing them with you) and just trade off kills, head shots, and dismemberments. I recommend trying for multiple people because the more people you have, the faster the kills and adding another person will usually save you more time then it will add to get everyone their achievements. This will be the majority of the multiplayer along with hosting 100 matches (see below for more on that).
Part 3- Ranked Online:
Ranked online is more of a pain in getting the people together rather than the actual time it takes. Most of these are relatively low numbers required, the longest being the 50 knife kills from behind, making them quick and easy. Ranked matches require 4-6 people (4 for free-for-all games, 6 for team games), however these only take about 2 hours to get everyone their achievements. These can be frustrating getting put in the same match, as the game tries to scatter people into a few games but once a few get paired up, if everyone re-searches, you will usually all end up in the same game. A quick note on team elimination, it is a best of three rounds match, so you can do it with just 6 and it does count kills from one round to another as it is the same match.
Part 4- Hosting and Multiplayer clean-up:
Now starts the longest portion of the online, hosting 100 player matches. It sounds like a lot but it can go by quite fast. Simply invite one friend to a deathmatch on a map you prefer (there are only 5, so your choices are limited) set to 1 kill. Start the match, hunt them down, kill them, and rinse and repeat. They can simply wander off, watch TV, go to the zoo, whatever they want, while you just continually kill them. You can also use this time to get the other 50 knife kills required for Butcher if you have not already done so, it also gives you a good idea for a rough half way mark in your hosting.
Part 5- Tips:
Cash and Prizes – When going for this, it is recommended that you host a CTF player match (I preferred to use the Garage map as this map is relatively small and meeting at their flag as they will respawn all around you) and put everyone else on the opposite team. You should crouch and aim between their legs, slowly moving the reticule up until it turns from white to red. If you get a one shot kill it was in the right spot, repeat 74 more times. Also, using a shotgun (I prefer the CAWS-50), and aiming at the top of the thigh will net you crotch shots as well as dismemberments towards Daddy Longlegs, however it is less reliable than the first method.
The Impossible Shot – Another achievement I recommend doing in Garage as is just an all around easy map to use. Equip the M16A3 and leave the optics slot under the customize menu empty. Line yourself up with the wall in the center looking down the stretch with the loading bays. Get your partner to stand against the far wall and without using the shoot short bursts at them until they die. Just a reminder, this achievement is actually for 25 kills, it says 10 until you unlock it then it says 25.
No Mercy / Not Enough Milk - If you still need campaign kills and/or dismemberments, load up the last section of Eshkashem from Mission Select on easy and as long as you don't blow up the helicopter, the guys will keep spawning. Use an AK and you will never run out of ammo as every guy you kill will drop you more ammo. You do not need to finish the level for the kills / dismemberments to count.
Easy Boss Fights – For the boss fights in the Garage and Nightclub levels, you can hide behind cover (the crates on the right in the garage and any pillar in the nightclub), wait for the boss to get close and run out shooting to stumble them. Once you get close, just keep clicking the to continually knife them. They will occasionally get lucky and hit you with the butt of their rifle, however you can live 2-3 of these and you will usually heal before they can get more than 1-2 hits.
This can be a very easy 1000 if you have a little patience and a good boosting partner. Once you get past the poor level design and less than helpful objective marker, the levels are pretty short and most of the time you just need to shoot everything that moves. The online can go by pretty fast so long as you stick with it and try to have fun.

|Snake In The Grass||10|
|Kill 10 enemies while crouching in any multiplayer mode.||(9)|
This achievement is cumulative and can be done in ranked or player modes. Stay crouched whenever you kill someone. Crouch is for this game; simply crouch while sniping or camping a corner. That, or walk around crouched and hope for some kills.
|Every Bullet Counts||20|
|Finish a multiplayer match with 100% accuracy (Minimum of 10 kills).|
This achievement will have you using your knife quite a bit. Since the knife doesn’t change your accuracy if you miss, simply camp a corner and get the 10 kills with your knife attack (click ) Of course you need at least 1 bullet to hit an enemy, I recommend a sniper for the job since they are the most accurate.
|More Ammo For Me!||10|
|Perform 300 reloads in any multiplayer mode.||(1)|
Grab an automatic gun, and basically fire 1 bullet then reload () the entire match. Obviously the longer the game the more time you have to reload. These must all be done in a single match. Also stay as far from combat as possible to avoid dying and wasting time.
|Nades For Everyone||20|
|Get a triple kill with an explosive during a single Ranked Match - Team Deathmatch.|
Gather 3 friends and then have them all stand next to each other. Throw a grenade () and hope for the best. Weaken them a little if need be.
|Accumulate 30 kills with a silencer over Xbox LIVE.|
Attach a silencer to any weapon that allows it and then get the 30 kills whenever you want. The kills are cumulative so you don’t need to do them all at once.
|I Got Shotgun…||20|
|Get 20 kills with a shotgun in a single Ranked Match - Capture The Flag.|
Take any shotgun and set up a boosting match. Get your buddy to run to the center of the map then kill them, 20 times. Make sure the match is set to CTF.
|There Is No Blue Wire!||20|
|Disarm 15 bombs in Demolition mode.|
This can be done in player matches or ranked and over the course of many games. Either allow the enemy to plant the bomb and then kill them and defuse it, or get a friend and have them plant and then you defuse it.
|Aim In Vein||20|
|Achieve a 25% vital zone hit ratio in a multiplayer match.||(1)|
This should unlock when going for the achievement “Every Bullet Counts” if you got a headshot. The easiest vital organ to hit is the head. Simply get one kill from a headshot and then either stop killing or continually knife enemies throughout the match. Can be done in player or in ranked.
|The Impossible Shot||20|
|Achieve 10 kills from a distance greater than 100 feet without a scope in any multiplayer mode.||(1)|
This can be done in player or ranked matches and is cumulative. For this achievement you are not only not allowed to use the scope but there can be no scope on your gun. Get a buddy and have them stand still, take an assault rifle and get beyond 100 feet but not so far as to make your gun ineffective. Then kill your enemy. Your enemy may want to weaken themselves before you start killing to make it easier.
|Achieve 15 kills with a sniper rifle in a single Ranked Match - Deathmatch.|
Either use your favorite sniper (I recommend the .50 Cal) and kill enemies as best you can or get a partner to let you kill him 15 times. The kills need to be done in a ranked match and in only 1 game.
|One Shot Is All I Need!||20|
|Achieve 5 headshots in a row without dying using a sniper rifle in a multiplayer match.|
Unless you are godly with the sniper I recommend simply getting a partner and going into a player match for this one. You need the 5 headshots without dying or the game ending. A killing spree with sniper headshots basically, there can be no other weapon used during the spree
|This Is My Rifle…||20|
|Kill the bomb carrier with an assault rifle 5 times in a single Ranked Match - Demolition.|
Get a good view of the bomb in a demolition game and then camp it using a suitable assault rifle (I prefer M16.) Allow enemies to pick up the bomb then take them out. I recommend using a silencer so enemies have slightly more trouble finding you. If need be then find a boosting partner and allow him to take the bomb before killing him.
|Spray And Pray||20|
|Achieve 5 kills in a row without dying with an SMG in a single Ranked Match - Elimination.|
I highly recommend boosting for this achievement. Start up an elimination match and then take a SMG and get a killing spree on all of your friends.
|Kill 10 opponents with a machine gun during a single Ranked Match - Team Elimination.|
Take any machine gun you please and then try to get the 10 kills with it on elimination. I recommend sitting at moderate range with it and sticking to somewhat crowded areas. Either that or get some friends to help out.
|It’s Not The Size…||20|
|Achieve 50 kills using pistols in any multiplayer mode.|
Whip out a pistol and kill 50 enemies. The pistol isn’t the best but since the kills can be done in player or ranked and are cumulative I recommend simply using the pistol ad nauseam until you get the 50 kills. That or set up a boosting match.
|The Black Knight||20|
|Shoot off all 4 limbs on any combination of players over the course of a multiplayer match.|
Over the course of a match (ranked or player) shoot off the arms and legs of any enemies you want. Limbs are detached when you kill an enemy by shooting them in that limb. Shotgun and sniper seem to work the best. Also don’t forget that you need to get the left and right leg/arm.
|Do It From Behind||20|
|Kill 50 opponents in Ranked Matches with a knife attack from behind.|
This achievement is cumulative so you can do it over multiple matches. Either find enemies that don’t see you and then sneak up and take them out with a quick jab to the back or get a partner and boost. It seems to be easiest to do on snipers and enemies that are too focused on the objective (such as running straight for the flag.)
|Accumulate 250 dismemberments in any multiplayer mode.|
This achievement is cumulative and can be done in ranked and player matches. A dismemberment is considered any kill or gun shot that takes off a body part or limb, so either aim for an enemies arms or legs. If need be set up a boosting match with a friend. Taking off limbs seems to work best with shotguns and snipers.
|Head Of The Class||20|
|Accumulate 100 headshots over Xbox LIVE in any mode.|
This achievement is cumulative and can be done in ranked or player matches. A headshot is any shot that hits an enemies head. Using snipers is the most effective way of getting a headshot off. If the need arises simply set up a boosting match with a buddy and shoot him 100 times in the head.
|Kill 30 enemy flag carriers in Capture The Flag.|
This achievement is cumulative and can be done in ranked or player modes. Similar to the achievement “This Is My Rifle,” camp by the flag and allow enemy players to grab it then kill them after they do. If the need arises grab a boosting partner and set up a CTF match, allow him to grab it them take him out.
|Cash And Prizes||20|
|Kill 75 enemies by shooting them in the groin in any multiplayer mode.|
This achievement is cumulative and can be done in ranked or player modes. Shoot any enemy in the crotch (the area where the legs meet the hips) for the kill to count twords the achievement. I recommend using a sniper or accurate assault rifle since they are the easiest to aim at an enemies crotch.
|Hostest With The Mostest||10|
|Host and complete 100 multiplayer matches.||(1)|
You must host 100 PLAYER matches, ranked don’t count. Either set the time limit or score very low and invite a friend to play 100 matches or simple invite players to play 100 matches as you progress through the multiplayer. As long as you are the one who makes the match.
|Kill 4 members of the opposing team while carrying their flag.|
This achievement is cumulative and can be done in ranked or player modes. Simply pick up the enemy teams flag then take down 4 people. You can of course set up a player match and then kill your buddy 4 times while holding the flag.

This achievement can be done in ranked or player matches. Simply kill yourself five times and then remain inactive the rest of the game.
|Where's The Competition?||20|
|Have a 5 to 1 or better Kill to Death ratio in a multiplayer match (minimum of 20 kills).|
This achievement can be done in ranked or player matches. You must at least go 20 and 2 in a game. The best way to do this legit seems to be to use a sniper throughout the match and try to keep your enemies from killing you at all costs. Of course a boosting partner can be used.
|Stop Hittin' Yourself!||0|
|Accumulate 50 suicides over Xbox LIVE in any mode.|
I recommend going for the achievement “Going Out With A Bang” before this one. This achievement is cumulative and can be done in ranked or player modes. Simply start a match and then start throwing grenades at your feet or shooting the ground with an RPG.
|You're The Best... Around||10|

|Complete Al Qa’im||20|
|Complete the Al Qa’im level on the hardest difficulty setting.|

|The Real Deal||110|
|Complete the game without dying on Normal or Hard difficulty.|
You need to complete the entire game on either normal or hard to unlock this. Picking normal will make thing much simpler. Unlike what you may think you don’t need to do it all in one run or all in the correct order. Simply select the level you want to do without deaths from the level select and then play through that level without any deaths.
|Complete the game on any difficulty setting.|
Finish all of the missions on any difficulty you want. For time purposes you might want to start on hard to get all the “Beat the level on Hard” achievements but it isn’t required.
|Soldier Of Fortune||100|
|Complete the game on the hardest difficulty setting.|
Complete all missions in the game on hard and you will pick up this achievement.
|Kill 1000 enemies throughout the campaign.|
Killing 1000 enemies sounds hard but really won’t take too long. Playing through all the levels once or twice should net you the achievement. You don’t need to finish the level for the kills to count.
|Not Enough Milk||30|
|Perform 500 dismemberments throughout the campaign.|
Similar to the achievement “Daddy Longlegs” except done in campaign. Use similar tactics as before, aim for the arms and legs and use snipers or shotguns.
|Kill 5 enemies in 5 seconds in any game mode.|
Near the end of the second level there will be about 15 enemies on the opposite side of a bridge. Either get them to bunch up and take them out with a grenade or shoot them all as quickly as possible with a machine gun or something with a largish clip size.
|Quicker Than Diet And Exercise||20|
|Perform a dismemberment at every point on the enemies' bodies.|

|Accumulate 100 kills with the knife over Xbox LIVE in any mode.|
This achievement is cumulative and can be done in ranked or player modes. Use the knife (click ) to kill 100 enemies. Simply get to a corner and knife enemies as they come through for the easiest kills or find a boosting partner to help you out.
|Survived an entire Deathmatch without hurting anyone (minimum of 4 active players).|
This achievement can be done in ranked or player modes. Find a good corner to hide in and then sit there the entire game. You can't die and you can't hurt any enemies. If you think you found a good spot go ahead and walk away from the game until it ends.
|Going Out With A Bang||20|
|Killed yourself and an opponent with an explosive 10 times in any multiplayer mode.|
The easiest way to do this is to either equip an RPG and then shoot an enemy or the ground at point blank while right next to them or throw a grenade at them and then run on top of it. Both methods are best done on unsuspecting enemies.
