Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Achievements


Kill 250 enemies using Exotic weapons.   

'Exotic' weapons are any weapons that are mounted on tripod. You can find a Heavy Bolter and a lot of Orks in Chapter 2 where you can grind it out, and there are Plasma Cannons on Chapters 4 and 7 or 8. Mounted Autocannons can also be found later in the campaign. These weapons can be ripped off of the turret mount to carry around during the Chapter. For most turrets this disables its infinite ammo.

To grind this out, simply go to Chapter Select under Single Player, select Act 1, Chapter 2, and the section labeled "Trenches". Play through the Chapter until you reach the Digga cutscene where Ork machines bust up through the ground into the Imperial Guard trenches, then continue around the next few corners until you see a mounted Heavy Bolter. This is the location you want, as you can net somewhere between 30 and 50 kills after grabbing the Heavy Bolter. Once you gun down the horde, simply reload the checkpoint, run back around the corner, and begin the process again.

Maybe you will be able to pick up other enemies weapons and use it against them?

I know that exotic weapons include the lascannon, plasma cannon and heavy bolter. I'm not sure what else qualifies as exotic though.

Like El Grunto said.. Plus my guess is everything that you dont see on the tabletop game.. Like the vengeance launcher.. I hope that maybe the barrel, exploding pipes etc. are in the exotic weapons

Do you remember the exact chapter or chapters that have turrets?

Chapter 16 has an autocannon and 9 has the heavy bolter on the Valkyrie. I think maybe chapter 2 or 3 also has one. There's several levels with them but those are the only ones I remember off the top of my head.

In chapter 13 when you are on your way to commandeer the titan, there is a spot where you first meet the (psyker) the guy who opens a portal so that enemy’s can come thru, and there is a heavy bolter just before he opens the portal you can sit there and kill the guys coming thru, just don’t kill the psyker.

Yup, Trenches is probably the fastest way to grind this. Just keep reloading checkpoint after running out of ammo for the Heavy Bolter.

Is this achievable through multi player?

The achievement pic actually shows the Vengeance Launcher, so I would assume that counts towards the 'Exotic' kills. AzzTuzz, I don't think this means multiplayer,
but rather the mounted Heavy Bolters, Plasma Cannons and Autocannons in singleplayer, along with the Vengeance Launcher and MAYBE Lascannon/Melta (not sure on the Lascannon or Melta)

Part IV, Chapter 13. Starting at the beginning, you will shortly come to a door that as soon as you open it, a heavy bolter from an upper railing is pelting you. Go take that heavy bolter and rip it off the rail, using 1 bullet per enemy for kills. A psyker will spawn opening a warp gate that spawns 1 enemy about every 3 seconds infinitely unless the psyker is killed. In which case, simply re-start the checkpoint and you will find yourself right outside above-mentioned door.

You can get this INSANELY easily at the point where *spoiler alert* Sidonus is killed. Load up that checkpoint and there is an autocannon resting against a crate right where you start off. Two chaos mages are in the back of the area letting an infinite supply of infantry in through the portals...400 cannon rounds, 250 kills, takes no more than 3 minutes

#18's method proved simple. Chapter 14, last check point. The autocannon took me a second to find, it is in front of you to your right, leaning on a crate next to a metal sheet (which is also good for cover).

I did this not realizing that you can get it on chapter 14, last checkpoint, I forgot there was one there. xD

I personally loaded up the "trenches" which I believe is in chapter 1 or 2? I forget, anyways, loaded up trenches, got to the part where the lieutenant tells you to hop on the heavy bolter, reloaded that checkpoint a few times (only took like 2-3 times).

There's a good like 60 enemies that hit you there, first they poor in on foot, then another wave comes in a digger.

This achievement made no sense however, shows a picture of a vengeance launcher, yet only counts mounted and heavy weapons.

Also, in the warhammer 40k universe, "exotic weapons," are considered weapons like plasma, melta, and las weapons, so this achievement was extremely confusing to a guy who plays the

This is accumulative, so if u don't unlock this by the end of the game, u can reload a chapter and still get it
