Before you start out your going to need to play through the game at least two times; One on any skill to unlock the "Very Hard' difficulty and a second time to get the hardest difficulty. Something else you may want to do to get some of the online achievements out the way is boost online, if your not to interested in boosting achievements you can play games of manhunt which will earn you the most money.
On a more interesting note there are two stories to follow in the game with each brother, you can either do one difficulty run with Thomas and then the other with Ray. These achievements are simple enough but they can also make the game a little more interesting as you don't have to take the same route in every level.
While you start out you have no choice over which brother you play as on the first two levels so just play along as the game tells you to. Before you start out though you have a choice of if you start the game on easy, medium or hard. If you want to get the most of the achievements out of the way on the first run through, play the game on hard. Then once you unlock very hard mode you will be a little accustomed to the skill level required. If your not so into playing through on hard either select easy or medium and then do your second playthrough on very hard to unlock all the difficulty related achievements.
There are a fair amount of collectables to find, but as long as you follow the collectables guide you shouldn't have any issues finding them.
There are six side quests to complete in the game. Three are in chapter six and three in chapter eight. You can bypass these but they will earn you two achievements, you can also use these side quests to earn easy money.
Through the game you will be faced with objectives on certain levels, these are straight forward but the D-Day achievement can be a real pain. In the middle of the map where you have to shoot the rafts there is a large boulder, an invisible raft will spawn behind this towards the end which will cause you to loose out on the achievement if your not paying attention. Keep a close eye on all parts of the map and watch the videos for the locations.
There are are a few achievements for using certain weapons to get 250 kills, you don't need to worry to much about these as you will either get them in the campaign, or through ranked online play, as both settings will unlock the achievements. If there is a level where you find you get a lot of kills you can keep reloading a checkpoint and collecting kills until the achievement unlocks.
This is where your going to be spending most of your time earning achievements, one big part of the online play is earning $200,000 and $1 million for the money achievements, on the way to these you will also need to unlock classes and play a few rounds on wild west legends. These are all pretty straight forward but a little time consuming depending on how good at the game you are. If you want to earn money fast while playing kill as many people as you can and save your wallet money. The more money you save the more you will have to go towards your money achievements.
Working towards the class ranks is probably going to take you far more time as you need to keep your bounty high to get a good pay off at the end of each game. The higher your bounty the more money you will have to spend on new players.
- Easy, Medium or Hard, your choice, once completed will unlock very hard mode.
- Complete all Misc Objectives.
- Complete the six side quests.
- Complete all misc kills/ weapons based kills. This can be done online also.
- Pick up all collectables.
- Finish off all other difficulties and collect very hard difficulty achievements.
- Collect other kills and weapon based kills if needed.
All the single player achievements are straight forward but you will need to play through at least 2 times to earn the majority of the achievements. Online play may take a while but can easier be done within a few matches boosting.
