Welcome to Lost planet. This game has a total of 35 achievements and a minimum of 4-5 playthroughs are required for this game. For the harder difficulty levels and the collectibles, beating them unlocks Extreme mode which is required for the "Legendary Soldier" achievement and the "Pioneer" achievement. The game isn’t terribly hard and is let's say very enjoyable until you get up to Extreme mode, This difficulty level is very hard and requires a certain level of skill from the gamer. Be warned there is a lot of replaying levels and collecting in game as it requires you play through every difficulty on every level to collect every target mark for the "Pioneer" achievement, so don’t be expecting to be finishing this game any time soon.
Cheats do disable achievements, but they don’t disable them on the Easy difficulty, here is the list.

Well let me start by saying that there are a lot of collectibles in this game and it will take a good portion of the 40+ hours to collect them all as some are in very awkward places. Don’t be saddened people, there is a very accurate and excellent collectibles guide with pictures and a description for all difficulty levels which can be found HERE.
NOTE: When you’re collecting target marks be sure to finish the level because if you quit out they will not be counted.
Step 2: Playthrough on Easy
This playthrough is going to be very easy and shouldn’t give you too much hassle. Use this playthrough to familiarize yourself with the game and the levels as you will be replaying them quite a lot in later playthroughs.
You will be getting the following achievements in this playthrough:
"Mission Clear 1 – 11" you will get these just by playing the levels. None of the levels are too hard. Remember to collect all your target marks for each level for the achievements (See Step 1).
In mission 3 you will get the "Worm Hunter" achievement. This will worm will attack you when you're roaming the wide snowy area and is very easy to take down. Just shoot the orange spots on it side and when it open its mouth shoot a rocket down it.
NOTE 1: The worm does not die, it respawns so when the music stops you have killed it.
NOTE 2: You must finish the level to obtain the achievement.
In mission 5 you will get the "Moth Hunter" achievement. This boss will circle the top of the mountain so just make your way up and pick-up the VS laser rifle when you get there, It takes around 5–6 shots to take down. Just remember don’t stand too close to the edge as its attacks can knock you down. You will know when you have killed it as it will crash into the mountains. NOTE 3: You must finish the level to get the achievement.
NOTE 4: Don’t worry if you missed a target mark you can replay levels any time you want.
Step 3: Playthrough on Extreme.
You will be getting the "Extreme Soldier" achievement in this playthrough. This is where the game gets a lot tougher and you will need a certain amount of skill and patience as the boss fights are very hard. Always keep your machine gun, it’s a very good all around weapon. Rockets are always a good thing and very effective when taking down enemy VS. There are 4 different types of Grenades, Plasma, Disc, Gum and plain old Grenade. Never pick up plasma grenades because they do more harm than good. My personal favorites are Gum grenades as you can stick them to VS, but when you don’t have of them I recommend the good old fashioned hand grenade.
Your TNG will deplete very quickly so don’t take your time to stop and look at the pretty scenery, Enemies are a lot tougher to kill and their attacks are a lot stronger which will kill you very easily so be prepared to die a lot. Many of the target marks for Extreme can be reached on this playthrough, but not all so it’s up to you if you wish to collect them now, I highly recommend you don’t as dying is very frustrating when you’re trying to beat the level.
Shoot everything and anything to obtain TNG. Try to steer clear of VS suits unless you really need to use one as these will gobble your TNG. The first and second bosses are the hardest in my opinion so try to obtain as much TNG as possible, anything over 1100 TNG should do you fine. Boss fight videos and level walkthroughs can be found HERE.
Step 4: Playthroughs 3 -5:
These playthroughs will net you the "Pioneer" achievement. Now this is the boring part and very frustrating as you have played this game a lot already, but its requires you to play on Medium, Hard and Extreme, You may only need to play on medium and hard if you collected all the target marks on your second playthrough. Just take your take time and play through the levels making sure you collect all target marks. Target marks are in a different places on each difficulty and some are in very awkward places. You can view your progress for each difficulty and its levels from the main menu.
TIP: For the target marks on the last Boss level on Extreme, I suggest getting his health down to a quarter as they are in very hard to see places and you don't want to collect them all and die.
All these achievements can be obtained whilst going for the "Online Master" achievement which requires you to hit Level 50 and will take around 120 matches of boosting Fugitive with a friend. Alternatively you can play online matches, but the game isn’t very active anymore and will take you a long time to level up. I suggest getting the Medals, Chain killer and Headshot Hunter first then boost the fugitive matches. If you don’t have a friend to help you out I'm sure you can find somebody in the forums.
That’s it! If you have obtained the full 1000 take a breather and give yourself a pat on the back, you deserve it. If you need any further help refer to the achievement guide or forums.
