Kane and Lynch is a third-person shooter in which you play as an ex-mercenary, fighting your way around the world just to say sorry to your wife and daughter whom you haven't seen in a number of years as you have been on death row. The campaign in this game is not very difficult and even on the hardest difficulty you easily get past it with a little patience and using cover wisely. There are no major glitches but some achievements tied in with the multiplayer can be a little inaccurate when it comes to how many rounds you've won/lost and how much cash you have earned. Sadly, this game does not have online co-op so you will need to play locally to earn a few achievements and you will also need two controllers. This game has been given a 7/10 because whilst the online related achievements are not difficult, they can be quite time consuming.

Step 1: Local Co-op on Hard
The first thing you will want to do is start up the game and load it up on Morphine difficulty, this is just another way of saying Hard difficulty. This is also the best point to net the ''End of the Road'' achievement, which is awarded for completing the game in co-op. Along the way you will earn story-related achievements and at the end of the game there will be an option to either take off with Jenny in the helicopter or go to the village and rescue the rest of your squad. At this point choose to go with Jenny in the helicopter and you will unlock ''Damned if you Do'' achievement. Once the achievement has popped go to the dashboard and then load up the game again and replay from the last checkpoint. Once you come back to the same choice choose to go to the village and rescue your squad mates. You should unlock the ''Damned if you Don't'' achievement as soon as the choice is made and when you have finally rescued your squad you should unlock both ''Iron Flower'' and ''End of the Road''. (Assuming you were playing cooperatively.)

Step 2: Mop-up
There are a couple of miscellaneous achievement in which you have to perform certain feats in certain missions or even gain a certain amount of headshots. Each achievement is explained in fantastic detail in the achievement guide and you should have no trouble understanding it. However, there are four achievements where you have to be playing as Lynch (2nd Profile signed in) to net them. These being: ''Bullseye'', ''Berserkopath'', ''Boomstick'', ''By the Grace of...''.
At this stage you should be sitting on 600

Step 3: Fragile Alliance (Multiplayer)
There is no quick way to gain the multiplayer achievements, other than visiting the achievement trading thread and finding some boosting partners. The one that will take the most time is ''Veteran''. It involves you finishing 200 sessions, as either a merc or a cop. The rest of them you will need to kill traitors, grab a certain amount of loot and play on all the different maps. The achievement guide explains them all and you shouldn't have too much trouble. One thing to remember though is that if the host ends the game session early then all of the stats you earned in that session will be lost.

If you have been following the roadmap then at this point you should have 1000. If you have missed any achievements then you can always use the replay chapter option to finish them all up. As for the online achievements they are available anytime but you should really play at peak hours because the online has a small population.

There are 46 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Let your crew do the dirty work.

    I got this from a level where I made my crew do everything. I didn't shoot a single round and just kept pushing the button whenever I saw an enemy. I got this on the level where you get the briefcase back. Just made the crew do everything.
  • Complete the first level in co-op.

    Awarded after completing the first mission on co-op. Co-op can only be played on one Xbox(No Live!) so grab a friend and play the game.
  • Go to the point of no return in co-op.

    At the end of the level "Choice" choose to take the helicopter.
  • Complete the game in co-op.

    Grab a friend and finish the game. If you want play it on hard and get this and the "Iron Flower" achievement as well. At the end of the game, you HAVE to go to the village to get the achievement.
  • Impact



    Escape from death row.

    Story related. Awarded after completing the first mission on any difficulty.
  • Let them burn.

    Take the helicopter out of the village. Best way to do this is take the helicopter then right as it is going black load last checkpoint and go the other way that way you don't have to re-do the level. This is after saving Jenny.
  • No rest for the wicked.

    Choose to go to the village and complete the level "Consequence" instead of going with Jenny.
  • Complete the game on hard.

    Complete the game on hard. Probably the easiest way to do this is to grab a friend and finish it on hard, that way you knock out both achievements at once. You HAVE to go back to the Village at the end to get the achievement. Getting on the chopper will not count.
  • Travel into the Rising Sun.

    Finish the level "Cracking Up."
  • Counter-revolution.

    Finish the level "Tokyo Streets."

    After killing Remomoto and loading the next level this achievement will unlock.

  • The Beginning of the End.

    Story related. Complete the El Capital Level (chapters 11 & 12), this unlocks at the start of the Jungle.
  • Stop the roaring beast.

    Awarded after killing the driver of the huge dump truck. Let it pass over you the first time and kill the two guys on the back. Then 3-5 guys will come one foot and try to kill Jenny. PROTECT HER AT ALL COSTS or its game over. When the truck comes back around, there will be three guys on it to the left of the driver. Try to kill as many of them as possible. After killing at least one of them, just shoot the driver's window over and over and over again until it breaks. Headshot the driver and achievement is gained.
  • Points for getting up close and personal.

    Awarded for 10 kills with close quarter combat. All you have to do is run up to an enemy and press .
  • 5 with one fragmentation grenade.

    Awarded after killing 5 enemies with one grenade. I got it after you get out of the church and there is a grenade gun on the ground near the stairs. Wait for a bunch of the soldiers to come up the stairs at the same time. Another way to get it is to wait at the bottom of the stairs on the subway level and when a bunch of SWAT guys come down, throw them a little present
  • 47 headshots.

    Awarded for getting 47 headshots. Should be achieved sometime in gameplay. Just take a gun with a scope and aim at an enemies head for easy head shots.
  • Lynch puts them out of their misery.

    While using Lynch, get ten kills in a row without getting hit. I found this easiest done in the bank where Kane and Lynch split up. Just get next to the main door, and when cops start coming in, just keep pressing the trigger.
  • Shotgun messiah.

    Kill 30 people with the shotgun. I was playing co-op with a friend and Lynch always seems to get the shotgun and he got the achievement. I did not, so you have to do it by yourself with a shotgun.
  • Throw back enemy grenades.

    Throw grenades back at cops. The easiest way to do this is in the prison level. When tear gas grenades are thrown just walk over them and you will see at the bottom of the screen it will say "Press to throw grenade" just press . Go to where the grenade lands and do it again. Keep doing it until the achievement is gained.
  • Teflon



    Avoid damage on a level.

    DON'T GET HIT. Just don't get shot on a level and the achievement will unlock. Make sure game is set to easy(Asprin) and just play the level you find easiest. If you have a crew to control, make sure that you send them ahead of you to kill everyone. Easiest done on the Trial level, just make Lynch do all of the work.
  • Avoid using adrenaline on a level.

    Using no adrenaline means you don't get knocked out from getting shot and one of your teamates has to revive you. Best level to do this on is "Trial" as it is very easy and there are less enemies than any other level.
  • Silencing the silent one.

    Story related. Awarded after The Mute from The7 is Killed. P.S.- Have fun with the truck...
  • Shouldn't have gotten personal.

    Story related. Received at the end of Chapter 14. Shoot the mine to trigger a cut scene, and it unlocks.
  • Glad it got personal.

    Story related. Received at the end of Chapter 15. Kill The7 Member, and go to Jenny. It unlocks.
  • Get that bird out of the sky.

    Done on the "El Capitol" level, destroy the Hind helicopter. It will pester you in the courtyard and you will be unable to take it down. YOU CAN ONLY DO IT ON THE ROOF! You will have access to rpgs and when it comes right beside the building is the best time to shoot it
  • Make the most of Lynch's condition.

    In the level where you are in the streets, Lynch will start halucinating and all of the pedestrians will turn into cops. Kill all of the pedestrian/cops as Lynch and the achievement will unlock. I hear that it is also capable to do it in the bank when Lynch freaks out the first time. *FUN FACT* When playing co-op and Lynch freaks out, go over as Kane and the pedestrians will be holding imaginary guns.
  • Lynch reacts fast at the Exchange.

    In the level where you go to exchange the briefcase and have the girl as a hostage, there will be a part in co-op that two snipers come out and threaten to kill Kane. Lynch will have to use his sniper and headshot both of the enemy snipers within 15 seconds. Use the d-pad to zoom in.
  • Complete a Fragile Alliance session.

    Awarded after completing any session of Fragile Alliance. It does not matter if you win or lose, just that you sit through all of the rounds of one session.
  • Some



    Escape with $50,000 from a Fragile Alliance heist.

    Awarded after getting to the escape van with at least $50k to yourself, or after the split having at least $50k. Should not be very difficult to get if someone you are playing with is fairly good at the game. Jewelry Heist is probably the easiest level to get this on.
  • A Lot



    Escape with $1,500,000 from a Fragile Alliance heist.

    Awarded after getting to the escape van with at least $1.5million to yourself, or after the split having at least $150million. This is pretty difficult to get on any other level than the bank. And even on there it is pretty difficult. I suggest trying on the jewelry level and betraying everyone to get as much money as possible...
  • Get personal revenge in Fragile Alliance.

    Awarded when playing on a ranked match and someone betrays you, you come back as a cop and kill them. Can be achieved on any of the multiplayer levels.
  • Kill 10 traitors in Fragile Alliance.

    Kill ten traitors while in Fragile Alliance. DOES NOT HAVE TO BE DONE IN ONE ROUND OR SESSION. Just find people with their names highlighted in orange and fire away until they fall down dead. Don't forget to get their money once they die.
  • Kill 2 traitors in a Fragile Alliance round.

    Kill two traitors in one round. HAS TO BE DONE IN ONE ROUND. Any traitors will do, just make sure they have their name highlighted in orange and fire away. Make sure you pick up their money whenever you're done with them.
  • Get 3 personal revenge kills in a Fragile Alliance session.

    Just like the first revenge. Someone has to betray you and when you come back as a cop you have to kill them. Its easy to spot them because their name turns orange. Do this three times in one session. IT HAS TO BE DONE IN ONE SESSION!!!
  • Get 30 personal revenge kills in Fragile Alliance.

    Get 30 revenge kills. Just like the first two, but it has to be done 30 times. DOES NOT HAVE TO BE DONE IN ONE SESSION.
  • Kill 100 traitors in Fragile Alliance.

    Kill 100 traitors. If you see any people with their name in orange, aim at them and press the trigger untill they fall down dead, because frankly, if they have orange over their head, they wont have a problem doing the same to you.
  • Help to get all the money out in a Fragile Alliance round.

    Escape the match as a Merc with all the money in the level. No traitors can escape with money and no cops can pick up any for you to earn it.
  • Escape with $150,000,000 from Fragile Alliance heists.

    Under Multiplayer stats it will tell you how much you have gained from all of your heists. Once that number hits $150 million, then achievement will unlock.
  • Complete one session in each Fragile Alliance scenario.

    Complete one session in each level. There are 4 different levels. The easiest way of doing this is go into Ranked Match and go to Host Match and just host a session in each different scenario.
  • Win 50 rounds of Fragile Alliance as a merc.

    Finish 50 ROUNDS, not sessions as a merc. To count it as a finished round, you have to get away as a merc. Doesn't matter if you have money or not, but you have to survive.
  • Win 50 rounds of Fragile Alliance.

    You have to win 50 rounds of fragile alliance. Winning consists of escaping as a merc, or not letting anyone escape as a cop. It is counted for ROUNDS, not sessions.

    Complete 200 sessions. Does not matter if you finish as a merc or a cop. You just have to finish it.
  • Escape in all rounds of a Fragile Alliance session.

    Escape as a merc in all of the rounds. It would obviously be smarter to make a session with the least amount of rounds possible, but it can also be done with the most rounds, it would just be a little bit harder.
  • All players split the money equally from a Fragile Alliance heist.

    All of the players in the heist have to escape with the same amount of money. No one can die and no one can be a traitor. It doesn't matter how much money each player gets because its split up at the end of the round.
