The Explorer Achievement

  • The Explorer



    Complete all optional missions.

    Within the game there are optional missions you can complete. Complete them all for the achievement. Not every chapter has them. There are a total of 10 missions, 3 of them which are optional. You can choose to play the optional missions in chapter select if you have a second person in your party. The missions usually consist of getting to a container with parts and circuits.

  • Hopefully they're not miss able... But most likely they will be..
  • Yeah, I think 'optional' implies that you don't need to do them. ¬_¬ Depends if you have to go out of your way to find them (Dead space isn't known for it's open-world-ness) or if you're assigned them during your missions like Assassin's Creed.
  • Side quests in a Dead Space game?! Interest piqued.
  • Sounds interesting! I can not wait to check this out!
  • Can't wait for this!!
  • Oh god! Sidequests!!! I'm gonna LOVE that game!
  • There's always the danger that these missions are boring "fetch-quests", but I sure hope this isn't the case. Interested in how this is going to turn out. Arh, February still seems so far away :(
  • Side missions?! I did not expected that coming.... Hope it gonna be interesting...
  • assuming we can go off mission course for optional side missions, bigger mappage to explore :)
  • Blegh, they're a pain to do alone and some require a co-op partner which I don't (yet) have. But seriously, I don't need even 1/3 of the med & statis packs in the main missions as I do in the optional ones. Constant huge hordes and those bigger fellas with pickaxes or something aren't helping at all.
  • Easy way to destroy people, set up a double shotgun, you can almost max all the stats with a fully done heavy elite frame. -OR- you can go double bolus gun, one normal fire, one 'land mine' fire. both are so powerful, I pretty much beat the whole game just using the shotty, I don't like the bolus but people have stated how good it is.
  • Do you have to do all of the side missions in one play-though? I can't find this answer, anywhere. I'm on my 2nd play-through and did some side missions the first time and would rather not have to do them again.
  • @Angel4711 I don't believe that they do. But your new game + file should on a different slot from your first playthrough. You can load it up and replay a chapter, it should tell you what you have missed and you can collect all the collectibles or replay the optional missions.
  • To get this achievement, do you have to do the Co-op missions too? Or can you just do all the solo missions and get it?
  • #15. yeah, you have to do the co-op missions too. (the only unlockables you can get by singleplayer alone are the difficulties, the unitology-, S.C.A.F.-, and Alien Artifacts).
  • #14 new game+ is considered a whole new playthrough. the only thing that carries over are the collectibles you've discovered (and weapons and resources)
  • Looking for a co-op partner :) message me if u wanna do the whole game and get all achievements. GT: DarkShadow ohh I'm online now havent finished the game on solo yet CH 10 :P
  • I could use a little help with all the co-op achievements Gt Meangeorge II
  • i'll need help with this i'll be online at 1300 est this comments get post on pst i think
  • ok so this comments are posted on central time
  • If you do all the solo optional missions in Classic Mode, you do NOT need to do the co-op missions in order to get the achievement. I can personally confirm this, as mine popped last night in Classic.
  • I can confirm with #22 seeing as classic is single player only so you only have to do a total of 7 missions instead of the 10 (think it was 10) I actually didn't know about this till I noticed it randomly pop up when I was completing the disposal mission (and then there were 3 of those things, oh god...)
  • Does anyone else want to do this coop with me?
  • I got the achievement for all coop-mission but the last one on mission 14 did not enter... Is it glitched? Anyway, i'll redo it even if it is a pain in the ass. Espacially when the partner put it in impossible at any second. My Gamertag is in my name... :p
