Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Achievements

Master of Sword and Gun

Complete a Chapter of the single-player campaign using only the Bolt Pistol and Chainsword.  

The Chainsword is aquired on Chapter 2, after it starts. You must complete an entire chapter firing only the Bolt Pistol and swinging the Chainsword. It's also worth noting that the Plasma Pistol you gain in Chapter 6 is a permenant swap; therefore you must complete this achievement before Chapter 6 to get this achievement.


Any easy way to get this achievement is to simply load the final checkpoint on Chapter 2 and finish the level with your bolt pistol and chainsword.

Probably a stupid question but does a grenade count? I hit the left bumper by accident and it killed an Orc.

Yes, grenades stop you from getting this achievement.

Any ideas on the easiest chapter to go for this one?

Easiest chapter for this one? The chapter where you get the Chainsword is easiest, you'll have to play through to the end of the jump pack part for it to unlock. BEFORE getting the Chainsword, use ONLY the Bolt pistol.

Easy way to do this is start up Chapter 2 on easy. Sprint past all the orcs you can. There are only a few areas where you have to clear out in order to proceed. Once you get the chainsaw halfway through its a piece of cake. I did this in 10 minutes.

Fyi, shoulder slams do not affect this achievement.

This cannot be gotten on the first chapter and I suppose that is because you don't get a chainsword so completing a chapter with only a bolt pistol doesn't count.

Just completed this achievement after the main campaign. Mission select - do chapter 2 from the start. Shoulder charges and jetpack slams are fine, as is attacking with the combat knife before you pick up the chainsword.

Confirmed combat knife, shoulder charges and ground pounds do not affect this achievement.

Did this on Chap 5. Loaded the cargo bay checkpoint and laid waste with enthusiasm. Played on easy, took about 5 mins.
