F.E.A.R Files is the second F.E.A.R to be released on the Xbox360. It is a first person shooter and the graphics are not the best but the gameplay makes up for it. The achievements in this game are mostly skill based and will require some practice.
Step 1: Single Player - Extraction Point
There are two campaigns in this game Extraction Point and Perseus Mandate. First do the Extraction then the Perseus Mandate. Now before you start the game print the Extraction Point Booster & Phone Locations. These are all in order and if you collect them all you will earn two achievements at the end. Start a new game on the easiest difficulty and collect all Boosters and phones and kill all enemies for Achievement Boost, Fear My Wrath, Take a Message, andNo Batteries. For the No Batteries achievement you must complete the Extraction point without letting the flashlight run down; best method is to use a flickering method to just see what is in front of you. Also make sure you pick up the weapon achievements Laser Showoff andMinigun Marauder. Once you have completed the game once start a new game on Extreme and make sure you take it slow and abuse the slow-mo and grenades. Only use your healthpack when your health is red. It will take you some time to beat the game but use the tips in the Achievement Guide and you will be okay.
Step 2: Single Player - Persues Mandate
This is the easier of the two campaigns. First you need to print out the
Perseus Mandate Booster/Phone/Laptop Guide. I would suggest doing your first playthrough on Extreme since this campaign is straight forward and there are not any hard enemies you have to fight. On the way make sure you pick up these weapon achievements High-Tech Hitman, An Advanced Arsenal, The Bouncing Boom, and kill enemies with every weapon in the campaign for Arms Master. Once you complete the game in Extreme you should have all the achievements for this campaign if you missed anything YOU MUST START A NEW GAME, so make sure you pick up everything.
Step 3: Instant Action
These are the hardest achievements in the game and they will be the most time consuming. First beat all maps on easy for Instant Gratification and on the way you will earn Action Initiate. Then once you are familiar with the maps load up Clinic on Extreme and complete it for Action Veteran. Now it is time for Glutton for Punishment, the hardest achievement, this will take time and patience. What I did was I did a map on easy then the next difficulty then Hard then Extreme and then did the next map. The enemies spawn in the same spots and once you memorize where they spawn you will do fine.
Step 4: Multiplayer
These achievements are very easy. First step is to find 3 partners in the Achievement Trading Thread. Then just boost all the online achievements and they are all very easy to obtain.
Step 5: Mop Up
If you still do not have achievements in a campaign or Instant action then you will have to start a new game for a campaign or just replay a level for Instant Action.
F.E.A.R Files is actually quite a tough 1000 and will require a lot of skill and patience. But once you are familiar with the game it will get easier to do the achievements.
