|Upgrade a weapon|
See Fully Upgraded
|Fully Upgraded (30 points)|
|Upgrade all weapons|
To upgrade a weapon, you must first reach the required amount of money (the purple numbers in the top left of the screen) and then hold to open the gun menu and us to select the gun you want to upgrade, then to upgrade it.
|Some Like it Hot (10 points)|
|Kill 20 enemies with grenades|
Grenades are scattered throughout the game, and once you pick them up you can throw them with . Getting 20 kills should occur during the first mission, as you will in fact get hundreds of grenade kills throughout a single playthrough (unless you don't use them, for some reason).
|Pieces of You (30 points)|
|Kill 6 enemies with a single grenade|
This can be done pretty much anywhere, with groups of 6+ enemies being very frequent, and the explosion radius of grenades being MASSIVE. Make sure you have some grenades first (they're below you're purple money in the top left) and then use while aiming in a direction to throw the grenade. You automatically chuck it to the edge of the screen, so you will want to throw it if you see the first couple enemies in a group coming toward you. Grenades are very common, so there's no real reason to not throw grenades frequently, as well.
|Starting a collection (10 points)|
|Find 5 collectables|
See The Collector.
|The Collector (30 points)|
|Find all the collectables|
There are purple money collectibles scattered throughout the game that you will want to pick up for this, as well as to get a small boost in your wallet size. If you die, you will need to collect it again, however if you miss one, you can go back and get it via mission select later, and the achievement will unlock as soon as you pick it up (if it's your last one).
|It's done (30 points)|
|Complete the game on any difficulty|
|Hardcore (40 points)|
|Complete the game on hardcode difficulty|
If you're immediately sent into the first mission, quit out to the dashboard if you want to restart on Hardcore. Otherwise, continue through the game, blowing everything up as you go. I honestly didn't find Hardcore too difficult, as long as you're always staying in motion, you watch for grenades, and you manage enemies properly.
|Warm up (10 points)|
|Complete Mission 01|
Story related, unmissable.
|BFFs (20 points)|
|Play Co-Op mode for 5 minutes|
For this you can either play online or sign in a second controller while you're in a game. If you want it really easy, you can just sit in place for 5 minutes, or you can have the second controller follow you around (either you play both, or have a friend play).
|A Taste of Blood (30 points)|
|Kill 150 enemies|
This will come naturally, and very early on in the game. Just keep spraying rounds and you'll get this in no time at all.
|Don't get close (10 points)|
|Melee kill 10 enemies|
Even on Hardcore, it's very easy to melee kill most enemies, and you can do so by pressing when they are in close range. You swing very fast, and with a wide arc, so it's not too difficult to kill multiple enemies in one swing.
|Unpopular (30 points)|
|Kill 3,000 enemies in total|
Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women. This game is simple: kill, destroy, and blow stuff up, thus you will get this sooner rather than later. You should unlock this around mission 7.
|Bombing Run (10 points)|
|Destroy 5 ground enemies with your aircraft|
At the end of mission 2 you will hop into a plane for your first vehicle sequence. There will be enemy trucks, boats, and anti-aircraft guns on the ground that you will need to blow up with rockets (). There is also a weapon upgrade that you'll want to grab to shoot more rockets with each volley. You can also try this on mission 5.
|Invincible (20 points)|
|Complete a vehicle minigame without getting hit|
Vehicle minigames turn the game into a vertically scrolling shooter, a-la Galaga, and you must grab weapon pickups to upgrade your weapons to take out the enemies. You'll encounter both ground and air enemies, with being ground attacks and the standard being your primary attack.
|A Fistful of Dollars (20 points)|
|Earn 15,000 dollars|
You get money by blowing stuff up ($3 per object, $5-10 for vehicles) and getting the collectibles. You will get about half of this in a single playthrough, so if you're going the 1 playthrough (Hardcore first) route, you will want to keep repeating farm the rest. Also note, the value is cumulative, and you do not need $15,000 on you at a single time.
|The Specialist (20 points)|
|Use all special ammo and weapons|
Pistol - up
|I hope you have insurance (20 points)|
|Destroy 50 vehicles|
During your explosive rampage, you'll take out everything from forklifts, to semis, and everything in between. If you blow up every vehicle you will see, you should get this during, or even before, mission 2. Overall, you'll most likely get this without even trying.
|Welcome to the Jungle (10 points)|
|Get to South America|
Story related, unmissable.
|Old Friends (10 points)|
|Meet Delgado for the first time|
Story related, unmissable
