 I Can Win (15 points)
Won 5 ranked matches.
 
This one requires you to win 5 ranked matches online in any mode.

Note: This achievement has glitched out for some people. If you happen to be one of those unlucky guys it seems like you will have to wait until it's been fixed.

Fragged an opponent with each weapon.
 
For this, you need to kill an enemy with every available weapon in the game. Kills from both singleplayer and multiplayer count. This is the available weaponry:
  • Gauntlet

  • Shotgun
  • Grenade Launcher
  • Rocket Launcher
  • Lightning Gun
  • Rail Gun
  • Plasma Gun
  • BFG10k

 Lord of the Arena (20 points)
Defeated Xaero in Campaign Mode.
 

Just play through the single player campaign in order to unlock this. There are 33 arenas to beat.

Note: You don't need to do the challenges for this.

 
 Gladiator (20 points)
Fragged 1000 opponents.
 
This one requires you to win 5 ranked matches online in any mode.

Note: This achievement has glitched out for some people. If you happen to be one of those unlucky guys it seems like you will have to wait until it's been fixed.
 
 
 This is Stroggos!! (10 points)
Knocked someone to their death.
 

This achievement is only attainable on maps in space. You need to knock somebody to his death by shooting him. The best ways are to shoot somebody while he is in mid-air (after using a jump pad) or spraying rockets at somebody near to an edge.

This is easily boosted in a private match.
 
 
 Flag Runner (10 points)
Captured 3 flags in one match.
 
The best way to do this is to start a single player CTF-match with a capture limit of at least four - don't take three or else it won't unlock - with no bots. Then just capture three flags and it'll pop up.
 
 
 First Frag (5 points)
Got a frag. Way to go!
 
This achievement is only attainable on maps in space. You need to knock somebody to his death by shooting him. The best ways are to shoot somebody while he is in mid-air (after using a jump pad) or spraying rockets at somebody near to an edge.

This is easily boosted in a private match.
 
 
 Arena Eternal (40 points)
Played in 500 multiplayer matches.
 
This achievement will take quite a while. Only online matches (ranked/player) count towards this. A good way to boost this is to set up a private 2-player match in either Capture The Flag with one capture or Death Match with five kills.
 
 
 Hardcore (30 points)
Conquered the universe.
 
This is the hardest achievement in the game and requires you to play through the whole single player campaign on Level 4 difficulty or harder. I suggest a lot of practice before attempting this since enemies are significantly harder than on the lower difficulties.

The final boss is Xaeros. Be careful when he possesses a rail gun since he has 99% accuracy with it. Your best bet is his stupid AI. He will keep dropping to his death, thus making it easier for you to win. I recommend you to get the BFG10k to try and kill him right after he spawns and prevent him from getting his rail gun.

Right after you've beaten Xaeros, the achievement will unlock.
 
 
 Ultimate Humiliation (15 points)
Humiliated an opponent carrying the Quad Damage.
 

This will be your first achievement. Just kill somebody in any mode.

 
 Collect 'Em All (15 points)
Picked up one of every item.
 
This achievement requires you to pick up at least one of every item available in the game. Here is a complete list of every item:
  • All weapons and ammo
  • 5, 25, 50, Mega health
  • Armor shard, Armor, Heavy Armor
  • Medkit
  • Invulnerability
  • Personal Teleporter
  • Kamikaze
  • Battle Suit
  • Haste
  • Quad Damage
  • Regeneration
  • Ammo Regen*
  • Doubler*
  • Guard*
  • Scout*

*Only in CTF, One Flag CTF, Harvester and Overload Games.

 

 
 You're Comin' With Me (10 points)
Fragged someone after dying, before respawning.
 
The best way to do this is to set up a private 2-player match on any map with a rocket launcher. Damage yourselves until you're low on health and stand in front of each other. Now Player A needs to shoot and Player B will do the same a few seconds after, so that Player B dies and his rocket will kill Player A while he is dead and not yet respawned. Switch roles and repeat.
