Boss/Specific Encounters/Everything Else
|Complete the game on any difficulty||(10)|
Simple. Complete the game. It's not difficult on normal mode. Never forget to abuse your DART overlay and breach applications. They will make the game a snap.
|Business Is War||50|
|Complete all chapters which track difficulty, on hard difficulty||(6)|
Some people will have problems with this. Be sure to take upgrades that will help your survivability (health, damage mitigation). Make use of your apps when appropriate, like using persuade when overwhelmed by enemies, or suicide when enemies are clustered.
|Complete chapters 2, 3, 4 and 5 on normal or hard difficulty|
|Complete chapters 7 and 8 on normal or hard difficulty|
|Campaign: La Ballena||20|
|Complete chapters 10 and 11 on normal or hard difficulty|
|Complete chapters 12, 13, 14 and 15 on normal or hard difficulty|
|Welcome to EuroCorp||5|
|Complete Wakeup Call|
Unmissable. Complete the first level.
|See No Evil||30|
|Defeat Kris without making him visible using EMP or DART Overlay, on normal or hard difficulty||(3)|
In chapter 15, Kris will cloak at the beginning of the fight, and stay cloaked. You will have to look for the light bending around him to figure out where he is to avoid using EMP and DART. He's not too difficult on normal, and Razorback ammo is plentiful around the room on the shelves. Just slog it out until he's dead. If you have trouble seeing him, stand still, and look in the direction you hear footsteps.
|Defeat the final boss without allowing any agent to be revived, on normal or hard difficulty||(8)|
This occurs at chapter 20. The trick here is bringing both of the twins down to critical health. Attack the main boss above until staggers, so he can't interrupt your attempt. Take down the twins side by side, and then execute them quickly. It shouldn't be too difficult. Just be sure to lower their health as much as you can before you start the execution process.
|Breach an entire barrage of five missiles in the Ramon boss fight, on normal or hard difficulty||(3)|
In chapter 11, Ramon will drop an EMP grenade before he launches a barrage. His SWARM laser will turn blue to warn you. Quickly stomp the EMP grenade (it'll be at his feet) and run in the opposite direction from Ramon. As soon as he fires his barrage, mash the DART overlay on, and breach all five missiles.
|Achieve a perfect result in all the Tutorial challenges||(2)|
There are three tutorials, one for each breach application. Follow the directions, and they should be straight forward. The hardest one will probably be persuade. Use persuade on enemies on the higher ground to maximize how useful they are. Line up a headshot with your pistol for enemies on the ground, as there aren't a whole lot. Any tutorial you fail you can immediately retry, and can be loaded from the chapter select menu.
|Achieve CEO ranking on any level||(4)|
This isn't too hard. Go for breach spikes, accuracy, completion time, head shots and rampages. Obviously, the better you play, the easier this will be, but the simplest thing to go for to shoot your score up is breach spikes and head shots. You can get away with taking extra time this way.

|Wetware Integrity Policy||20|
|Don't kill any EuroCorp civilians with the minigun in chapter 8||(8)|
On chapter 8, a ton of EuroCorp civilians will be running shortly after you kill a reactive armor and jack his minigun. A bunch will run out in the beginning, which are easy to avoid, but as you make your way up, some more will pour out from a door on the right. Take it slow, and if all else fails: melee everyone. You don't have to use the minigun, and enemies can kill civilians without negating your attempt.
|Gaggle of Guidance||5|
|Use the Swarm's multi-target lock-on firing mode to kill 3 UAV drones with one volley||(2)|
Obtainable shortly after picking up the SWARM for the first time. Drones will be pouring out of the contraptions soon after picking it up for the first time. Breach the shields of three of them, and then lock on to each one. Fire, and destroy them all in on volley to get the achievement. If you mess up, it's okay; the drones endlessly spawn until you shut off the machines.
|Kill 3 specters in chapter 14 without using EMP effects on them, on normal or hard difficulty||(2)|
Spectres are the cloaked guys. There will be a few of them in the level near a bunch of EMP mines. Watch for their movements and fire at them without breaching any of the mines, or using EMP grenades. There's plenty of chances to get this, as there's 10 or so spectres.
|Make it past the conveyor belt without taking any damage from the turret||(2)|
The conveyer belt level is on Chapter 15 of the single player campaign. As soon as the level starts and you exit the vent, do not move. To your right is the turret that you have to avoid. Kill the enemy directly in front of you and peek out just enough to see the conveyer belt controls that you have to override. Overriding the conveyer belt moves along a box that you must keep between yourself and the turret as cover.
|Make Them Watch||30|
|Kill Agent Crane before you kill his two sidekicks, on normal or hard difficulty||(6)|
This is on Chapter 18 of the single player campaign. You'll be notified with a cutscene after you drop down from a vent when you hit the boss fight, so you'll know for sure when you're on it. To stay alive, simply use the pillars (raising them with a breach when necessary) and dodge around the lackeys - don't use persuade or anything on them, as they may kill each other, or time may run out and the persuaded lackey may commit suicide. The achievement will pop when you down Agent Crane and extract his chip.
|Ambassador of Peace||15|
|Kill enemy soldiers of two different syndicates fast enough to receive a rampage energy bonus||(3)|
This is pretty simple. Just load up Chapter 19 and find any area where there are black soldiers and white soldiers fighting one another. All you have to do is kill them one after another quickly enough for your rampage bonus to go off. You can do this right after you hit your first outside area after opening the door-like thing... just shoot one guy on the platform, then one guy down below under cover.
|Unlock the Datacore in the minimum number of breaches||(5)|
At the end of Chapter 19, you'll encounter a big round door with lights surrounding it. Simply overlay (and you have to use overlay) and breach one side, then the other. If you miss it somehow and fail, just reload your last checkpoint to try again.
|Obtain a health bonus from network connection links from your upgrade choices (single player only)||(4)|
This is achieved by linking two upgrades that are side by side on the agent chip upgrade menu (accessed by hitting the back button on your controller). It doesn't matter what two upgrades you pick so long as they connect to one another.
|With Friends Like These||15|
|Kill an enemy from the explosion of a reactive armor unit||(2)|
The first time you can get this achievement is on Chapter 8 and best played on easy (just so you don't have to worry about the lackeys). You'll know you're at this point when you encounter a cutscene with a big, white armored guy holding a minigun. Breach the big guy's armor and shoot his health down, then do the same thing again. When you have breached him twice and shot down his health, lure him over to a lackey and breach him one final time. His explosion should take out his friend, and you will get the achievement immediately. If for some reason you fail, you can also reload your checkpoint and start right at the beginning of the fight.
|Find all propaganda tags (unlock all propaganda tag infobank entries)||(5)|
Refer to the guide that IDiivil and I wrote for a full description on each propaganda tag and location.
|Every Bullet Counts||30|
|Defeat Tatsuo without restocking your ammunition from the UAVs, on normal or hard difficulty||(6)|
This fight is at the end of Chapter 4. The easiest way to go about this fight is utilizing your overlay to shoot at Tatsuo and avoiding him otherwise whenever you need to let your overlay recharge. As the achievement says, do not restock your ammunition (aka do not breach) the floating UAVs during the fight. If you run out of ammo, just pick up any of the guns dropped by enemies before and during the boss fight. If you are careful and use timed shots and shoot only during overlay, though, you shouldn't have to even change guns.
|Kill 3 or more enemies from the electricity discharge of a dying electro armor unit||(4)|
Best unlocked on Chapter 19 in the outside area (the one you enter by forcing that door-like thing open with X towards the beginning). When you see the flashy lights appear towards the garage-like doors, stand before it and ready your gun. These garage doors should open after you've killed the guys originally in the area and after you've killed the guys who come in by the dropships. When the garage door opens (should be the middle one), use your overlay and breach the blue-like man in the middle. Kill him ASAP, and his electric armor should discharge and kill the other guys that had spawned with him.
|Greed is Good||35|
|Achieve CEO ranking on all chapters which track difficulty, on hard difficulty||(5)|
CEO ranking is marked at the end of every chapter to the right during the chapter summary screen (seen at the end of every chapter). It is also marked as a checkmark on your chapter select menu if you have achieved CEO ranking on those chapters in the past.
|Successfully sprint tackle 25 riot shield units||(9)|
Many reports have shown that while the achievement claims you must tackle them, using a riot lance or electron mace on shield users in coop also works (coop riot shields can't be tackled).
|Complete all Co-Op maps on any difficulty||(1)|
Complete all 9 co-op maps. They are fairly easy on normal, even with randoms. You will start with Western Europe, and with each map completed, you unlock the next map.
|High Value Asset||25|
|Complete all Co-Op maps on expert difficulty||(8)|
This one will be a little rough. On Expert, all of the spawns are overhauled, all of the enemies are tougher and dish out more damage, and usually bring weapons that hit harder. The main issues for most players will be guarding UGVs and agent battles. Gackt made a helpful guide for dealing with agent battles: LINK
|Initial Public Offering||10|
|Be a member of a Syndicate consisting of at least 4 people||(35)|
A "Syndicate" is a themed term for "clan". Join any Syndicate with four members (even if you are the fourth) for this to pop for everyone in the Syndicate.
|Defeat an enemy agent squad|
An "agent squad" is a group of four agents. They appear at the ends of Atlantic Accelerator, Scandinavia, and New England. Atlantic is the first level in the line of progression, so you will get it on that level if you're playing in order. It'll pop at the end of the level once they are all dead.
|Save a team member that is stunned by an electron mace|
You will need a partner to do this. When in Colorado or Scandinavia, have your partner get trapped by someone using an electron mace. Kill the sergeant with the electron mace while your ally is stunned. Easy!
|Complete a mission without going down||(5)|
This is easier as you level up solo, but is way easier if you have team mates healing you. Western Europe on normal should be a snap for this. Go slowly if you're a low rank, and work with a partner that you can trust will heal you. It will pop at the end of the level.
|Kill 4 enemies in 4 different ways within 1 minute||(6)|
This must be done in coop mode (you can be in a game by yourself, however). There are several methods to killing people, despite a loadout of only two weapons by default:
|Heal 3 team members for at least 50% of their health within 1 minute||(1)|
This is easy to arrange with a team of 4 in coop, especially on harder difficulties. Your squad heal app makes this really easy. Just wait until everyone's damaged below 50%, and pop it.
|Oh no you don't!||10|
|Complete 10 Contracts against members of your syndicate||(1)|
For this, you will obviously need to be in a Syndicate. A contract is when a player is further along in a challenge than you. You can complete this contract by exceeding them in that challenge (like getting more liquid kills, healing more syndicate members, etc). On the stats and challenges screen, your contracts will be on the right side. You will want to join a Syndicate that has players with the same amount of progress as you do, otherwise, if you join one with members that have been playing for a while, your contracts will be for ridiculous values.
|Score a 2,000 points combo|
Combos occur from bonuses when killing enemies. Each type of bonus (sergeant, head shot, etc) will add an extra multiplier to the combo. An easy way to get this is to take damage link and C2C pulse when in a group. Damage link will give you points everytime an ally damages something else, and C2C will heal any damaged allies in range, also giving you points. Difficulty levels effect point values for enemies, so this might be easier for some on hard mode or above. Another easy way to get this is to be the last man standing, and begin raising your team mate as you continue to kill enemies.
|Employee of the month||10|
|Complete a mission after earning a team savior score||(1)|
"Team Savior" is awarded for reviving your team as the last man standing. Simply let your team fall, reboot them, and complete the level.
|In the name of Science||5|
|Finish your first research|
Research is completed by using blueprint or application tokens on upgrades for weapons and apps. After tokens are used, that upgrade must be selected for active research. A little cog will appear next to the tech you are researching. This tech will have a progress bar and number listed; this is the amount of experience needed to finish the research. As you play, that bar will fill up behind the scenes and alert you when it's completed while on a mission.
|Do 10,000 points of damage and heal or block 10,000 points of damage using applications||(1)|
This should come naturally with time. Shield, group heal, C2C heal, and e-drain can all count to healing (and damage, in the case of e-drain). Backfire, virus, and tentatively damage link can count to damaging. You need to do both 10,000 points of damage and heal/block 10,000 points of damage for this to unlock.
|50% completion (level, research and challenges)|
|100% completion (level, research and challenges)||(21)|
This is the long haul achievement for coop. You will definitely hit rank 30 and probably have the majority of your upgrades (52 for apps, 86 for weapons) before you're even close to finishing all of these. Any enemy that must be breached to be killed (Liquids, etc) can be shared between two people so long as you breach the final armor layer together, so you can easily cut down those grind times. Here's the list of what you'll need to accomplish for the challenges:
Kills by Fire: 100
|Kill 50 enemies with all the weapons in the game||(5)|
It's possible to do just about everything in single player (aside from Electron Mace and Riot Lance it seems), but if you have the option to play online, coop is a way, way better choice to efficiently get kills for these weapons. You will probably take care of most of the kills for these weapons during single player, the rest of which you can mop up during coop.
|Breach 873 grenades||(15)|
"Breaching" a grenade disarms it, so naturally you will have to wait for an enemy to hurl a grenade to you. Just aim at it and hold . Disarming a grenade is extremely fast, and sometimes you can finish breaching before it even hits the ground. After a grenade is tossed, you have around 5 seconds to disarm it and subsequently loot it for your own use. There are two bosses you can grind this on: Kris, and the final boss.
|Get the rampage bonus up to 5 sequential kills||(1)|
It's pretty easy to get this without trying in single or multiplayer. You need a rampage with 5 kills. Aim for a kill a second. In single player, the first Aspari level towards the end has quite a few opportunities to get this, even on hard mode. In coop mode, there are a ton of opportunities to get this if you play on normal by yourself. If you're having trouble, level your character up, fully upgrade the sniper rifle, and let guys pile up. The sniper will rip clean through a group of people, and you have 8 rounds to play with.
|Make It Snappy||10|
|Kill 50 enemies with melee executions||(2)|
Melee executions require you to stand next to an enemy and clicking . Note: not all enemies can be melee'd. All of the lower class soldiers can be melee'd, however. Just click the stick if an enemy is close to you. This can be done in single player or coop, or any mix of the two. Coop chiprips count toward this.
|Nowhere To Hide||30|
|Use a penetration weapon to kill 500 enemies through cover, while in DART Overlay||(7)|
The weapons that count for this are the Kusanagi rifles in scope mode and the COIL's secondary fire. After the penetration is upgraded on the rifles, it will shoot through moderately dense walls at an equal level of the COIL's secondary. It won't plow through thick bunker buildings, but this achievement is a breeze with an upgraded rifle, since you can take it as a loadout option. Just pop your DART-6 overlay and shoot anyone that's behind cover. Of the two loadout weapons, the sniper will be easier, as it does more damage, and with damage link, one shot's everything.
|Collect 500,000 energy||(2)|
Energy in this game is adrenaline, so don't let the description fool you. Adrenaline powers your applications and helps keep your DART vision filled. You can keep track of this statistic in the extras menu, under campaign and coop. It will come naturally as you complete the other achievements, especially while playing multiplayer.
|Use breach abilities 300 times||(2)|
This only counts abilities, not any moment where you're just using the "breach" ability. For single player, this includes suicide, backfire and persuade. For multiplayer, this is any ability aside from the default "breach" ability. This should come with time getting the other achievements.
|Do 250 rampage kills/kill streaks|
Rampages are a quick three kills or more in rapid succession, and it seems to count when the deaths are one after another, rather than at the same time. Damage link works wonders for this along with the sniper rifle using the assault scope, or an upgraded minigun. You will know when the kills you have just made count to a rampage in multiplayer when a "RAMPAGE 250" bonus shows up on the screen. In single player, you will have to just keep track of this in statistics menu since bonuses don't show up on the screen.
