Challenge Guide

This guide contains details on all the challenges in the game and will be ordered with all similar challenges together. I suggest you copy this guide into a Word Document or print it out. You can then mark off the challenges as you complete them, or just keep track using the in game challenge menu.

 

Warning:

If you die, any challenges completed since the last time the game was saved will be lost and will need to be completed again. There is no way to repeat levels to finish any challenges, or continue the game after the last level. This means that if you miss ANY challenges you will not be able to unlock the “Bionically Challenged” achievement, unless you start another playthrough. The challenges must ALL be completed in one playthrough to unlock the achievement.

 

Always keep an eye on the challenges that are currently active, and work towards completing them whenever you can.

 

The guide will be laid out as follows:

 

Requirement: What the challenge asks you to do will be detailed in this section.

Guide: How to complete a challenge will be listed in this section.

 

Unlocks: Anything unlocked by completing a challenge will be listed in this section, including achievements and ingame rewards.

Bosses:

These challenges are completed by fighting the games bosses. None of these challenges can be missed.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/491/-JI8lA==.jpg

Out of the Bush:

You will fight the Buraq helicopter at the end of the "The Buraq, Pre-Fight" level.

 

Requirement: Destroy the Buraq.

Guide: To destroy the Buraq pick up the Tarantula Missile Launcher that will be dropped for you, and climb to the top of the large central tower. Wait for the Buraq to stop firing then peak out zoom in, lock onto it and fire. Repeat this two or three times and the Buraq will be destroyed.

 

Polycraft will also attack during this fight; you can destroy them using the Tarantula as well. You will need to destroy them before continuing the fight with the Buraq helicopter.

 

Unlocks:

- Six Shooter - The Tarantula can now lock onto up to six targets.

- Achievement “Out of the Bush”.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/491/-irM7g==.jpg

Can you dig it?:

You will fight the Mohole at the end of the "Mohole" level.

 

Requirement: Defeat the Mohole.

Guide: To defeat the Mohole you will need to wait for it to open the panels around its “eye”. It does this when it is about to attack. Once it opens use either the Bulldog or the SJMG to damage its eye (the SJMG does more damage). You can also throw the cars found all over this area at the Mohole but they are less reliable than your weapons.

 

Sometimes after you damage the Mohole it will fall over and start to regenerate its health. When this happens run over to it (shooting as you go) and attach to its eye. It will fling you up into the air. Press the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/y.png and the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/b.png buttons repeatedly to do a powerful Death From Above attack on the Mohole. Repeat this until the Mohole is defeated.

 

Note: Try to stay on the raised platform at the back of this area whenever you are not running at the Mohole or retrieving a weapon. Doing this you will mean you will avoid its most deadly attack (a series of shock waves it fires into the ground) without having to do anything.

 

Unlocks:

- Red Matrix.

- No Clipping - Ammo capacity for the SJMG has been increased.

- Achievement “Can you dig it?”.

The Constructor:

The fight with Groeder is on the second from last level "The Constructor". To start the fight you will first need to disable the Constructor.

 

Requirement: Defeat the Constructor.

Guide: To start with you need to destroy the three Cooling Units, to do this head to one of the markers on your radar kill the enemies in the area, then grab the Cooling Unit and repeatedly tap the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/b.png button to rip it. Repeat this for the remaining two. Once this is done head to the Buraq helicopter to start the fight with Groeder.

Note: Save all of the grenades you can on the first section of this level for the fight with Groeder.

 

Groeder will use two main attacks on you, one will start with him jumping into the air; dodge this attack by jumping off the edge and grabbing the side of the structure. For his second attack he will dash at you, use the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/lb.png to dodge this attack then attach to him with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/lt.png and press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/a.png to Zip Kick him.

 

Once he is below half health his suit will be clearly battle damaged. At this point you can damage him with grenades. Wait until he is circling the edge of the arena than through a grenade, once he gets back up and starts walking again through another. 3 or 4 grenades should be enough to kill him.

 

Unlocks:

- White Matrix.

- Achievement “Choke on that”.

Thank you, I hope you're all finding the guide helpful :).

 

Wow good job im away for a week with the red ring and my guide gets taken over by someone else. dam

 

Thanks, sorry to take over on you like that but due to the "Bionically Challenged" achievement, this became a necessary part of the Achievement Guide. Which I needed to be able to edit personally.

 

I've added you to the list of contributers at the bottom of the Achievement Guide, and linked to your thread.

 

I hope there are no hard feelings.

I missed a few of these (death from above and what follows), which sucks cause I probably wouldn't have it if realized there was an achievement for getting all challenges. Then I was thinking no biggie I can redo all challenges but then I realized collectibles were one of the challenges. Fuck.

The collectible challenge does not count towards the Bionically Challenged achievement, so you won't need to do it again.
