Intro:

Welcome to Blacklight: Tango Down, a multiplayer exclusive online first person shooter arcade game. Based around a city thrown into destruction and chaos, take control of the Blacklight Soldiers or the Order and fight for control of what remains of the city. With a largely customizable set of weapons that you can modify to create your own "one of a kind" weapon.

 

Getting started:

There is a free demo available on the Xbox Live Marketplace for this game, the download is just over 700MB, and gives you the exact same experience you can earn in the full version of the game. The only catch is you only have 1 hour of play time in the demo. Your 1 hour will not count down while waiting in a lobby and will not expire unless you are in a game. Use this demo to framiliarize yourself with the game and decide if this is the game for you.

 

Conclusion:

If you have any questions or find any of the material in this thread confusing, please ask questions and I am sure that myself or someone else will try and clarify things for you.

Well thats all I have, lets get on the what you really care about: Achievements!

 

 

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1371/-n6OTg==.jpgn00b 5:gsicon:

Win 1 quick match! Welcome to the winning team!

 

Fairly simple, join a quick match game and be on the winning team, this will come eventually with play and experience, but most of it starts with luck on how good your teammates are.

 

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1371/+B2UkQ==.jpg Opportunist 10:gsicon:

Kill 10 opponents in a quick match while they are affected by a Digi Grenade.

 

Digi Grenades are available from level 1, right at the get-go. You can equip them on any of your classes in the armory by going to your classes' equipment section. You need to kill 10 people who are currently stunned by a Digi Grenade, meaning it must land and explode relatively close to them before you kill them. Something to take note of is that your secondary grenades can be pre-detonated by holding down the trigger before releasing. The only advice I have for this would be to throw lots of Digi Grenades before going for kills and try doing it in close quarters areas where the enemy is less likely to escape and be hit by the grenade or while they are hacking objetives. This achievement can be earned across mulitple games.

Achieve a win in any game mode on every map in quick match games!

 

Self explanitory, there are 12 matches in the multiplayer rotation, win a game on each of them to get the achievement. You can find a complete list of the maps below:

 

BRUTALISM

CURFEW

DERAILER

DROPZONE

FLOODGATE

PITFALL

POST ALLEY

WHARFARE

SHADOW MARKET

SKY FIRE

ZERO POINT

SLUMLORD

 

Unfortunately, all 12 maps are randomly rotated so you may find this takes a while to get if you cannot find a specific map.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1371/-b9-aA==.jpg Field Officer 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png

Reach the rank of Sergeant.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1371/+f1sAg==.jpgDodge This 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png

Headshot 25 opponents while they are using HRV in quick match games.

 

HRV is your visor mode activated by pressing :dup: and allows you to see enemies, health and ammo stations through scenery. You need to score 25 headshots on people who are in the visor mode, this may take a while to get naturally but can be easilly boosted in the Achievement Trading thread Here.

 

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1371/+jydJA==.jpgWay of the Gun 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png

Kill an opponent with their own weapon in a quick match. Ouch!

 

Not as hard as it sounds, kill an enemy and pick up their weapon with :ybut:. Now you have to kill that same enemy before you die and lose their weapon, you can do this very easilly if you are close to the opposing teams spawning area.

 

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1371/+RuJKg==.jpgFlatten and Reinstall 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png

Kill 25 opponents in quick match games while they are EMPed!

 

Similar to "Opportunist" (above) but using EMP grenades instead of Digi Grenades. Simiar tactics and strategy should be used, for more information please re-read "Opportunist" (above). This achievement is culminative and can be earned across multiple games.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1371/+0WceA==.jpgCommissioned Officer 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png

Reach the rank of Second Lieutenant.

 

Second Lieutenant is level 38 in the ranking system, please see "General" for more information.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1371/+PtxuQ==.jpgCommand Officer 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png

Reach the rank of Major.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1371/+IRtXg==.jpgGearhead 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png

Unlock all gear and weapons!

 

Gear and weapons are unlocked with natural level progression. As you advance in rank, you will obtain more modifiers for your weapons.

 

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1371/+WSVzQ==.jpgGeneral 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png

Achieve the rank of Brigadier General. Hats off to you!

 

Brigadier General is level 70 in the ranking system. As you earn more and more experience from killing and completing objectives, you will slowly grow in level, as you level you will be rewarded with a new rank, new weapon modifiers, and achievements. Below is a list of the amount of experience needed to reach the ranks related to experience:

 

Sergeant (lvl 7) ------------------ 12,500 XP

Second Lieutenant (lvl 38) ---- 260,000 XP

Major (lvl 50) ------------------ 400,000 XP

Brigadier General (lvl 62) ----- 660,000 XP

Currently the fastest way to level in this game would be to play Deathmatch or Team Deathmatch games, as they offer a high amount of experience per kill and it is very easy to get multiple kills every game. Alternatively, you can boost control point hacking with a friend but you will need a full party of 6 and other people can easilly stop your progress.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1371/+9xltw==.jpgHack the Gibson 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png

Hack every control point on every multiplayer map in quick match games.

 

While playing Domination, every map has 3 control points that can either be hacked or captured by standing next to it, to get this achievement you need to hack every point on every map. You can hack a point by using the :abut:,:bbut:,:xbut:,:ybut: buttons where you must press a random 4 button combination, similar to Simon Says. Just watch for the buttons to flash and press them in that order after you know the 4 step pattern. An easy way to keep track of this achievement is to write down the names of the maps you still still need to hack a point on and crossing them out once you have hacked all 3 points. The list of maps can be found below:

 

BRUTALISM

CURFEW

DERAILER

DROPZONE

FLOODGATE

PITFALL

POST ALLEY

WHARFARE

SHADOW MARKET

SKY FIRE

ZERO POINT

SLUMLORD* (Slumlord only has 1 control pannel in the center)

 

Special thanks to Fatalfox for this list of maps

Guide is looking good so far! I think for hacking it has to do with the three consoles in Domination matches, but I could be wrong.
Was thinking something similar but I havn't been able to get into a single domination match all day, will have to try again tomorow.

I got into one. Each map has three consoles which you can either capture slowly by standing next to it or go through a "Simon Says" type of button-pushing mini-game to capture it right away (which is what I think the hacking is).

in reference to the EMP and digi grenade achievements they are words slightly different. i am wondering if it has been confirmed that you can get the digi grenade achievement in multiple games like the EMP one. because it looks to me according to the wording that it must be in A game. if you can confirm this either way that would be great. thanks.

I'm 99% sure it is culminative, I will add that as soon as I am sure.

I just estamated 40 hours, also was talking 40 hours in game, should probably make that more clear. I'm only level 14 myself.

and then the one point on SLUMLORD ( the achievement popped midgame so you will know if you did it correctly)

 

Thanks, I'll jot that down for now

 

 

Good start for a guide, maybe also a tip to list all the maps names?

While playing Domination, every map has 3 control points that can either be hacked or captured by standing next to it, to get this achievement you need to hack every point on every map. You can hack a point by using your D-Pad to move triangles on the sides into the middle, when all 5 triangles are in the middle, the terminal will change sides and be successfully hacked. The list of maps can be found below:

 

 

I don't know if it's random for everyone who plays but, when I hack something in domination a "Simon Says Handheld Game" mini game pops up. And I have to repeat the pattern of :ybut:, :xbut:, :bbut:, :abut:, it plays to me back for a successful hack.

Never heard of this before, but if I encounter it or hear more about this, I will be sure to update.

 

Just got it: Updating now

I get the same button pressing mini-game for hacking in Domination.

 

Also, I am in the middle of the match and just had something pop up on the side of my screen in relation to Digi Grenade kills. When the match is over, I will see what it was and see if it is related to the achievement.

 

EDIT: Apparently, one of the awards is for Digi Grenade kills and goes up to 10. I don't think this is related to the achievement.

 

Side note: anyone notice the teabagging award? :D

The award is not related to the achievement because i have both the grenade achievements and the award thing still says 1/10.
