Welcome to the Quantum of Solace Achievement Guide. This game has a total of 50 achievements and you only need one complete playthrough to get all of the single player achievements. Most of the achievements come naturally while playing but others you need to work for. If you do not get any single player achievements during your 007 playthrough then you can just go to Mission Select and play the mission on the easiest difficulty, New Recruit.
Step 1- 007 Playthrough
I highly suggest playing through on 007 difficulty first because the difficulty achievements are stackable. It is the hardest difficulty but it is not even that hard. You just have to make sure you use a lot of cover and use your map that is found in your phone to find where your enemies are. Using stealth is very important. Any fighting that you can avoid is important and will help you complete the game faster and easier. While playing through the game you can try and get as many extra level achievements (achievements that you might not get just by playing but you have to do something special to get) but if you don’t get it while playing then you can go back and do it on an easier difficulty.

Step 2- Wrap Up
This is where you have to go back and get any single player achievements that you might have missed. You can go to level select and just play the level that you need on the easiest difficulty setting, New Recruit. Once you get the achievement that you are trying to get, you can just quit out of the level.
If you missed any cell phones or power weapons then this is when you can go back and get them. Make sure once you get the power weapon or all the cell phones in the level that you reach the next checkpoint before you save and quit.
Step 3- Multiplayer
The multiplayer achievements are not hard, they are a little time consuming though. If you keep playing the game modes that have achievements for them, such as Territory Control, Golden Gun, Bond Evasion, and Bond Versus, you will eventually get the achievements.
If you are really having trouble or you want to get the achievements right away, then look in the Quantum of Solace Achievement Trading Thread to find people who you can boost achievements with.
This game is not hard to get 1000 in. There are no glitched or missable achievements that you have to worry about. The game can be frustrating at times on 007 difficulty, but if you keep trying then you will complete the game.
