 Payne In The Ass (20 points)
Story Complete [HARDCORE]
 

Hard, Old School and Hardcore paythroughs all must be done with [FREE AIM] on. If you change aim assist at any point during a playthrough you will NOT get the achievement.

This difficulty will be very hard for those not experienced with Max Payne titles, you will die very quickly and easily. It will only take a few shots for an enemy to kill you so you will need to constantly be in/behind cover.

Here are a few tips to help you in this playthrough:

  • Cover is very important this time round, if you run in guns blazing you will without a doubt be killed. You can take cover behind nearly anything so be sure to use and objects to your advantage.
  • Bullet time will come in handy, you will find yourself using it a lot more on this playthough than the others. Don't waste it if you have made your kill/s then tap  again to exit bullet time, its to valuable to waste and isn't as easy to get.
  • Headshots will be the quickest and most effective way to kill your enemies, especially when there are multiple enemies around headshots will be your key out of a sticky situation.
  • Take your time, if you rush in this game mode you will have no chance of finishing it. Don't aim to finish the level but aim to reach the next checkpoint.

Note: Remember, you must do all the playthroughs with [FREE AIM] on or the achievements will NOT unlock.

This mode is unlocked after beating the game on any difficulty. You initially have only have 1 minute to finish each chapter, but kills earn you more time. The timer will stop during cut scenes and slows in bullet time. Headshots, cover, precision and bullet time will be crucial on this playthrough as well as speed. Use the Painkiller Location Guide. Painkillers are very handy in your NYM:HC playthrough as well as Old School and Hardcore playthroughs.

If you die in this playthrough you will restart back at chapter one, so be very careful when toward the end.

 Dearest Of All My Friends (10 points)
Kill Someone On Your Friends List
 

This can be done in any multiplayer playlist. All you have to do is kill someone from your friends list once and this achievement will unlock. Deathmatch would be the easiest to get this on, just join a game and then get a friend to join in with you then kill them.

You could also invite players in the Deathmatch to be your friend and delete them after the match.

 
 Air Ace (25 points)
Get 2 kills in a single Shootdodge in the Departure Lounge
 

This one isn't too bad and can easily be done without boosting, either catch 2 enemies battling it out on each other and go for the double shootdodge kill, if you only kill one of them and you're are still alive on the ground then remain prone and wait for another enemy to come by and then kill them. This will also unlock the achievement, you can strafe left and right to make little movement in aid of hiding or finding an enemy, just don't get up before your 2nd kill.

If you wish to boost this, you will need 8 players in order to fill the lobby up and lock out any random players form joining, then the player who's getting the achievement should either make their way on the 2nd floor or just at the top of the elevator in the main terminal, have either an RPG equipped or a duel wield of your choice, have 2 players stand below/in front of you and go for the kills.

 
 Express Checkout (25 points)
Kill 4 players within 3 seconds in the Imperial Palace
 

If you want to go for this legitimately, the easiest way to pull this off is to unlock the Weapon Double Dealer Burst perk which is available at level 48, when this is triggered at level 3 all the enemies grenades will instantly drop and explode. When you trigger this you need to be in the line of sight of at least an enemy player and be ready to kill them, hopefully causing a chain reaction to the other players on the team and blasting them all.

Although that last method still seems quite challenging, this is a challenging achievement therefore you can always boost it by getting together 8 players again and start up a public Team Deathmatch game. Then gather 4 enemy players in a small area like inside the empty swimming pool and either blast them with an RPG or chuck a grenade.

 
 Long Arm of the Law (25 points)
Win 20 Vendettas in the 55th Battalion HQ
 

You win a Vendetta when you kill an enemy after they have killed you twice in a row. So it's pretty self explanatory and will take you anywhere between 2 and 5 game depending on how good you are at the game and don't worry if you lose a vendetta from other players, it doesn't affect the achievement. You initiate a vendetta at the respawn screen by pressing . A perk that will greatly help here is Vendetta Tracker which shows your target on the minimap at all times once you've initiated the Vendetta.

 
 M4 Murder (25 points)
Level up your M4 all the way to level 10
 

The M4 is unlocked from the start, you need around 400 kills depending on headshots and the amount on XP you're getting to reach level 10 with the weapon. You can get this achievement by playing on any map on the game as long as you get kills with the M4. You will unlock attachments for the gun as you progress so make sure to add those as they become available because they will greatly help.

 
 Keep Your Nose Clean (25 points)
Get 100 Kills as a member of the SPP
 

The SPP is the Sau Paulo Police faction that play as on a random basis through multiplayer game modes. You simple need to get 100 kills while playing as this faction and a guaranteed way to always play as them is to go to your multiplayer Arsenal and select Avatars, then pick a game mode (e.g. Deathmatch) and select SPP. Now when you play Deathmatch online you will always be on the SPP team so start killing!

 
  Old School Moves (10 points)
Perform a 720 spin while prone in Nightclub.
 

This must be done on the "Nightclub - Club Moderno" Multiplayer map and can be done in a Private Session. Use Shootdodge, , anywhere on the map. Once you land in the prone position on the floor, rotate yourself with the left analog stick three times until the achievement unlocks.

 
  Early Adopter (40 points)
In a single game, kill the same player with both the M24 and the IA2 AR.
 

The M24 is a Sniper Rifle, while the IA2 AR is an Assault Rifle. This is easily done in Deathmatch and can be unlocked on any map, wether it be a DLC map or original map.

Make two different loadouts, one with the Sniper Rifle, and the other with the Assault Rifle. When the game starts, aim to get about five to six kills with the Sniper Rifle, in hopes that each of the kills are on a different enemy player. Switch to your Assault Rifle class and get another five to six kills and hopefully, one of the enemies you kill will have fallen victim to both your weapons. The achievement will unlock once the same enemy player is killed with both the new weapons.

 
 WMD (40 points)
Get 3 kills from a single use of the level 3 explosives burst.
 

Equip the 'Explosive Burst' to any of your loadouts. Hop into a Gang Wars game and proceed to get a couple kills until your Burst meter reaches Level 3. Melee kills will fill up the meter faster than regular kills.

This Burst essentially drops a live grenade at the feet of all visible enemies on the map. Your best chance to get this legitimately would be to wait until there is a round of 'Turf Grab' , as the chances of the enemy team being bunched up are high. Once you see at least 3 players on the enemy team, activate your Burst and hopefully the enemies die from the explosion.

If boosting, simply follow the same steps to get your Burst meter to Level 3, then have your partners stand in a circle right in front of you while you activate the Burst. They will all drop a grenade and once the explosion kills them, the achievement is yours.

 
  60 Seconds of Intimidation (35 points)
Grind 60 Seconds of Intimidation on enemy players.
 

You will need to equip the Intimidation Mask to one of your loadouts. This mask essentially effects the reload speed of your enemies. When you are near and enemy who is reloading, they will reload slower than normal.

This achievement's 60 second requirement is cumulative so it does not need to be done in one match. With the Mask equip, simply play Multiplayer as regular and it will unlock overtime.

If boosting, simply have your partners stand in front of you and have them shoot one bullet at a time, followed by an instant reload. If all players have the Mask on, everyone can the achievement in one match.

 
 Long Arm of the Lawless (20 points)
Kill Max Payne in Panama as the De Marcos
 

This achievement is very simple but it should be noted that it must be done on the Panama Canal map (this is the larger map where the yacht is docked). First, set up your Deathmatch avatar as the new De Marcos faction (that came with this DLC) from the Multiplayer Menu. Now launch a game of Payne Killer and simply kill the player who is Max Payne and the achievement is yours!

 
 Bar Brawler (20 points)
Kill someone with a melee strike in the Bar area of Hoboken Bar
 

Any game mode will work for this achievement; however, make sure you are playing on the new "Marty's Bar" map. In order to obtain the achievement, you must melee attack-kill, , an enemy player inside the Bar area of the map.

The Bar is easily found across from the Church and has multiple entrances. If you are boosting, simply ask your partner to meet you inside the bar and make sure to melee strike them in front of the bar counter.

 
 Ouch My Head (25 points)
Headshot someone with a Hangover
 

This achievement's description is quite confusing, as one would think you would have to be the one who is hungover while getting a kill.

That's not the case. All you must do is kill an enemy player who is effected by your Hangover Burst. Be sure to get your Burst meter to Level 3. A Level 3 Hangover will cause enemies to spawn with little stamina and low health for about 10-15 seconds.

It is suggested that this achievement be boosted with a full 8-player lobby, because it is likely that an enemy will hold back until their Hangover wears off in a legitimate match. A great map for this achievement would be "Branco HQ." Activate your Level 3 Hangover burst and kill your partner. When they spawn, communicate quickly in order to locate and kill them while the Hangover is still in effect on them.

 
 Welcome Ashore (30 points)
Kill a player on the yacht from the observation platform of the Panama Canal
 

This must be done in a Gang Wars mode and is suggested that you have a full 8-player boosting lobby and a Sniper Rifle loadout. Be aware that the observation platform is not the 2-story building immediately to the left of the yacht. You can find the observation deck to the south-west of the yacht, past some metal catwalks. It is the single-story, white building with large glass windows.

Have your partner(s) on the enemy team stand on the front of the yacht while you position yourself inside the observation platform. Melee the windows and follow up with a direct headshot from your Sniper Rifle. The achievement will pop as soon as you kill one of the enemy players on the yacht.

 
 Drinker's Revenge (30 points)
Kill the sniper who broke your Hip Flask in the same life
 

The Hip Flask item protects the user from a single Sniper Rifle round. With that said, equip this item to one of your loadouts and make sure your partner(s) have a loadout with a Sniper Rifle.

Have them shoot you in the torso, preferably at close range. The Hip Flask will save your life, allowing you to terminate your partner and earn the achievement!

 
 3 Blind Mice (30 points)
Blind 3 players simultaneously with the pepper spray
 

Equip the Pepper Spray item to one of your loadouts. Now meet your boosting partners in the center of the map and have them stand in a straight line. Spray the can back and forth across the faces of all three of your partners and once they are all blind, the achievement will pop.

 
 Sweaty Betty (40 points)
Trigger and avoid a Bouncing Betty by Shootdodging
 

It is suggested that this achievement be boosted with at least one other player. Meet your partner in a safe area within the map. Have them deploy their Bouncing Betty near you. Now walk towards the Betty and when the light turns green, this is your cue to ShootDodge backwards as the Betty launches into the air to explode. This may take a couple tries in order to pull it off properly. Just make sure you trigger the Betty, then ShootDodge backwards.

 
 Betty Confetti (40 points)
Kill a player with the Bouncing Betty
 

This is the easiest achievement out of the bunch. Simply equip a Bouncing Betty to one of your loadouts and deploy it during a match. An enemy is bound to trigger the Betty during the match and when it kills them, the achievement will unlock.

 
 Resisting Arrest (40 points)
Stun 10 players with either the cattle prod or stun gun
 

Equip either the Stun Gun or Cattle Prod to one of your loadouts and simply use them to stun an enemy player! The Stun Gun only has about 3-4 shots and the Cattle Prod runs out of 'ammo' rather quickly. This achievement is cumulative and will unlock once you have stunned the 10th enemy player.

 
 Breaking and Entering (50 points)
Open 15 Containers or Doors in a single game of Dead Men Walking
 

Dead Men Walking is a new game mode in Multiplayer that plays similar to Halo Reach's Firefight Mode. As Max and Passos, you and your partner will have to fight endless waves of enemies, while using teamwork and skill to stay alive. Each kill grants you points to your new "Grit" meter, which allows you to open new areas of the map via locked doors, and new weapons and pill bottles via locked containers.

Each container or door will have a icon above it with a different color - bronze, silver or gold. These colors match that of your Grit meter, meaning if you have Silver-Grit, you can open a locked, Silver-Door. For the achievement, you must open 15 of these locked doors/container. Take note that only containers you opened will count towards the 15 total count. Any containers your partner opens will count towards their own achievement.

While doors will remain opened after unlocking them, containers will eventually close and you can reopen them on later rounds. Make sure you and your partner have a clear line of communication in order to stay alive as long as possible.

 
 It Looked Easy Enough (50 points)
Complete the Challenge Mode
 

Do not let the significant gamerscore or name of the mode throw you off. Challenge Mode is very easy and is nowhere near as difficult as the New York Minute Modes.

In the Main Menu, go to the Arcade Menu and you will find Challenge Mode. In this mode, you will have to complete the Story while a game-pausing challenge will appear on the screen before major firefights. These challenges are quite fun, and not too difficult. Some of the harder challenges include, "do not use cover" , "no headshots" , "fire only 10 rounds" , "no pills."

If you happen to fail a challenge, do not worry. You will restart from the last checkpoint you earned, which is always right before one of the challenges. Make your way through each level and the achievement will unlock once you blow up Rodrigo's plane on the last Chapter.

 
 Breaking the 4th (40 points)
Earn a x4 multiplier in Challenge Mode
 

In order to get your multiplayer up, you must complete challenges without failing. If you complete three challenges flawlessly, you will be rewarded with a 3x multiplayer. However, if you fail the third challenge, the multiplayer will be reset to zero.

Taking this into consideration, simply complete the first four challenges in Chapter 1 without failing any in between. The achievement will unlock once the 4th challenge gets added to your multiplayer.

 
 
Secret Achievements
 
 
Sweep (10 points)
Flawless Team Gang Wars Victory
 

In the Gang Wars playlist there are 5 rounds of objectives were you and your team compete against another team. For this achievement you and your team will need to win all 5 rounds in one game.

 
You Push A Man Too Far (5 points)
Don't Shoot The Dis-Armed Man
 

On the last mission of the game, you will come to a part where you have to take out Becker who has the grenade launcher. When you approach him and the cutscene appears, do NOT shoot him.
