Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Achievements

None Can Stand Before You

Complete the entire game on Hard difficulty.    

Complete the game on Hard.

To do this:

1. I would recomend avoiding melee whenever possible, as your job becomes much easier with less enemies in your way when you're forced to engage in melee.
2. When your armor's shield pops, fall back behind objects and wait for it to restore.
3. When you're low on health, try to execute any Gretchin or Traitor Guard for a quick burst of health. If no gretchin are nearby, fall back and use your bolter to thin the enemy before you engage in melee to heal.

Also: Do not use the chapter select after starting the game on hard. Doing so will cause the game to reset your progress towards beating the game on hard.

lol I thought #1 post was funny :P

I'll probably start on hard difficulty setting. After beating mass effect 2 on Insane i've been on a huge "hard mode" kick.

Finished my first playthrough in hard and it wasn't that bad. A few spots here and there you'll find yourself in trouble but other than that not hard. Probably around Heroic deifficulty for Halo 3.

Doing it on hard right now. Like #8 said it ain't that bad. Over halfway through and I've only died twice. Hoping Chaos Marines won't be too much of a problem.

Stay at range and this is surprisingly easy. I had very few deaths and used the bolt & plasma pistols as my main weapons for almost the whole game. Just keep a melta handy and a stalker bolter or lascannon, always overcharge the plasma and you can do no wrong. Even chaos space marines are no problem when faced with a charged plasma gun.

Surprisingly easy. Only hard moment was trying to kill two Demon Hammer dudes with just Plasma guns to get that achievement. Soon wrapped on that and used the melta gun to, again, a surprisingly easy effect.

Played through the campaign on Hard. But didn't get the achievement. Granted, I would occasionally backtrack if I thought I missed something, but I always made sure I had Hard selected when using the Select Mission.

I beat the first chapter without dying and boy am I glad I don't have to beat EACH chapter without dying! Almost done on hard though. It's really not that hard. Final boss is going to be insanly easy I hope! :P

You will have to do this all in one playthrough, you can't select a new
chapter mid-way through the campaign. You can only choose to continue your

@16 same here, and I can confirm from their forums that you can't select missions from the menu for this to pop. They are hazy as to whether it'll be patched.

Fucking game... This achievements glitched on me and i havn't unlocked it, and i am NOT re-doing the whole campaign on hard. So fuck this game...

@18 It's fucking retarded that you have to do it in 1 playthrough. You should be able to unlock it as soon as you have completed every chapter on hard wether it be from chapter selecting or one playthrough...

You muther fuckers!!! I played this goddam game on fucking hard the whole way through, went back before the end for ONE fucking servo skull and you screw me outta 125 points? FUCK YOU!! PATCH this bullshit already!!!

Why backtrack? Just complete the game in one go in Hard and THEN, you can choose the chapter and level you want to replay it for the missing skulls...

Tip for last encounter: Use the Melta Gun, gather Daemons up and bang. All dead. Lascannon works great on the Chaos Marines and Psykers, Guardsmen are free health just like Gretchins.

I had the same problem that #23 had, this fucking blows. Halo had no problem doing it, why does warhammer?

So many whiners going on about how they missed the acheivement.
It's not a glitch, and it won't be patched.
If you weren't so impatient to get the servo skulls you'd have the acheivement by now.
