 Mission 01 Cleared (10 points)
Successfully complete Mission 01.
 

Beat mission number one on any difficulty.

 
 Worm Hunter (50 points)
Defeat the giant worm!
 

This is a simple achievement which is done in Mission 03. Here you must kill the giant worm that follows you throughout the plains of the level. There are 2 ways that you can defeat this thing.

Option 1 - when he opens his mouth to do the wind breathing attack shoot some rockets down his throat.

Option 2 - grab anything that shoots and unload on its orange pods.

The worm doesn't actually die, he respawns. So when the intense music stops playing and he disappears for about a minute, you have earned the achievement so leg it out of there before he comes back because when he does, he'll have full health.

Note: YOU MUST FINISH THE LEVEL to get the achievement.

 
 Moth Hunter (50 points)
Defeat the giant moth!
 

The Moth is huge and while you'll first see it in Mission 04, you can't actually kill it until Mission 05. It will circle around near the top of the mountain you have to climb at the beginning. Pick up the VS laser rifle and blast it 4-5 times and it'll crash and burn into the mountains.

Note: YOU MUST FINISH THE LEVEL to get the achievement.

 Online Master (50 points)
Reach level 50 in online battle.
 

To get this achievement there are 2 methods depending on what online achievements you already have.

Method 1- If you are new at this and have no online achievements, well this will make your life easy: follow the guide to get the medals for Elimination, Team Elimination and Post Grab, then when you are going for your fugitive medals follow this method:- Start a game with a friend, on Pirate Fortress, rifles as the default weapon. From the start, the player who is going to win captures a data post while the other player commits suicide using grenades (now in some instances this will end the battle and you will recieve 4000+ exp). Repeat again until the battle ends, getting you anywhere from 3900 exp to 4300 exp. This method should take around 12 hours to get the whole online component of the game complete.

Method 2- If you have all the online achievements and are already above level 10, follow the above method for winning at fugitive; your level will increase quickly, when you hit level 30 it will take 4-6 games like this to level up all the way to 40 so it is about 30-120 seconds per game. Once you hit level 40 it will take 6-10 games per level, so level 30 to level 50 will take around 1hour 30 mins - 2 hours per player.

 
 Chain Killer (50 points)

Extreme Soldier (150 points)
Complete Campaign on Extreme.
 

Very difficult.

Things to keep in mind:

* Enemies have more health and there are more of them.

* You will not have a VS suit for most boss battles.

* Your T-ENG decreases much faster.

* Shoot everything in sight. Everything that dies, breaks, explodes drops T-ENG which is your key to survival.

* The hardest boss is the first boss so save your energy because the game will get easier toward the end.

Master Pioneer (50 points)
Found all of the target marks in every mission.
 

You will have to find every Target Mark on every difficulty. If you miss a Target Mark you can come back for it through level select, but you must finish the level for the Target Marks to save. During Extreme some Target Marks are located outside of the map and can only be reached with long ranged weapons so pay close attention to the directions and what weapon the character is holding in the screen shots.

Target Mark Locations (Including Pictures

Written Guide

Note: During the Final fight on Extreme you must grab 5 Target Marks while fighting the boss. My suggestion is to get his health down to where he has about 1/10 of it left and then grabbing them, because it guarantees the win and you're not wasting time grabbing them in the beginning just to die.
