The Incredible Hulk Achievement Guide
There are 50 achievements with a total of 1000 points
Encounter General Ross’s Spec Ops team for the first time.Just make it to the end of the first level "He Must Not Escape" and defeat Bronsky's armor at the end. See also "You break it, you bought it" as you will be doing that during this level.
Save New York from the Enclave Chemical Bomb.Finish the "Enclave is on the Move...part 2" mission. Throw the bombs into the river before the clock runs out. This is also a good time to try "Smash-ifist."
Enlist Samuel Sterns in the search for a cure to Banner’s condition.You'll meet him when you start the mission "A Friend Who Can Help Part 1". Smash all of the Army bases to find the data.
Defeat the Bi-Beast.This guy comes from completing the main Enclave missions. He can be a little tough, and he has a lightning attack that stuns you (and sets you up for more lightning). The tutorial says to pull out the rage attacks... simply hit him once and do a charged heavy punch to do a thunderclap combo (you must hold it for its entirety to stun him), pound the walls to build rage, and use the full-rage ground pound. It takes away around half of his health and he can't block it. Watch your health, and you should manage.
Destroy an Enclave Kyklops for the first time.This is a giant robot. You may meet it and defeat it in a few missions. Just chuck cars at it from a moderate distance. Don't fool around too much because his health will regenerate. You can lock on to enemies with LT and this helps quite a bit. Jump up and a use a charged X attack to hit it right in the "eye" which is a big bullseye.
Ignite an old flame . . .Complete the mission "Our Old Research Data." Destroy the army bases and move on to fight Bronsky. When you damage his car beyond repair, he'll zip past you and get in another vehicle. Repeat this process until his health runs out. Keep in mind that when 4 vehicles are destroyed, Bronksy will call for backup. Again, just repeat this process.
Expose Major Talbot on television.This is a story mission. Attract the news helicopters by smashing things on the rooftops near them. Don't hurt any civilians. Once you have the attention of all three helicopters, bring them to Major Talbot's base. Keep them from dying by taking out the SAM launchers and the special suits that show up (they are susceptible to pole-attacks). If the special suits are still flying, jump up and do a rushing aerial pole attack. This will knock one down, where you can finish them off.
Dishonorably discharge Major Talbot.This guy is a sore loser. You get to fight him in his S.I. Hulkbuster suit. Punch and full-charge thunderclap to stun him. Hit him with a combo and repeat until dead. Enjoy the cut scene and fitting achievement message.
Clean up the contamination from the streets of New York.Finish the "Enclave is on the Move...Part 4" mission. You need to set down the machine in the green cloud and give it time to suck in the gas. Don't let the Enclave forces damage it. Finish all the clouds and bring it back to the ESU campus.
Crash and destroy the Enclave’s Lightning Satellite.See "Struck Out"
Defeat Enclave’s F-POD...with a little help.In the "Lesser of Two Evils Part 3" mission, an S.I. Hulkbuster armor will need protecting while it scans the F-Pod for a weakness. Keep him alive until he tells you knock that thing down. Once it takes enough damage, punch the 4 buttons on its top to insert the breaker rods. Then finish it off.
Protect General Ross's team while they attack the Enclave base.This is pretty self explanatory, but in mission "Lesser of Two Evils Part 1" make sure the Enclave Barbaria, drop ships, and foot soldiers don't kill the army vehicles. As an added bonus, you are still considered a target by Ross, so feel free to move on to the next group of Enclave ahead of the convoy. If you're going to get shot, it might as well be by the real bad guys.
Get a power boost from Samuel Sterns.Complete the mission - "We're Not Giving Up - Part 2". See "Fear of Falling" as this will be done during this mission.
Test the cure developed by Samuel Sterns.Finishing the mission where Sterns tests the cure on the infected building. It is interesting to note that you don't get the "testing the cure" story cut scene before the achievement.
Defeat the Abomination.
Compared to Ironclad and the rest of the U-Foes, this guy was a pushover.
- Part 1: after the rapid-tap mini-game, use a charged thunderclap (when he is blocking, reg. punch then immediately hold heavy punch until it releases... it will use 1 rage bar) to make him dizzy. Wail on him with a combo and repeat until his health is zero.
- Part 2: clear the helicopter pieces to save Betty. A well-timed jump and rushing punch does the trick.
- Part 3: Stand next to him and he will pick something up to hit you with. Let him wind up then quickly move out of the way. He'll drop it and get dizzy after two swings. Land a few punches and repeat.
- Part 4: wail on him with the last rapid-tap mini-game!
Defeat 50 enemies using Rage powers.When you unlock your rage powers, and when your rage bar is full, you can unleash devastating charged attacks in the middle of a group of enemies. Thunderclap gives the best radius and Groundslam does the most damage in a straight line. These must be full rage charged attacks -- without the roaring mini-cutscene, they don't count toward this feat.Select a rage power with the D-pad, then unleash it by holding Y+B.
Survive for longer than 60 seconds at Threat Level 9.You must unlock level 9 to begin this (beating the first S.I. Hulkbuster armor seems to do the trick). On your first few missions, you get no threat level (a great time for knocking down a whole neighborhood, collecting landmarks, etc. Just keep in mind, you also can't use the subway/save feature either). First you unlock level 4, then level 6, then level 8, and finally 9. You'll know when you can't reach a new level when no matter what you do, you can't raise the bar higher than 4, 6, or 8. Usually when you kill a new type of army enemy or vehicle in a story mission, a threat level unlocks.Once you get level 9, simply start jumping across the city and you won't even be scratched. Use a subway to clear the threat.
Defeat 5 enemies by knocking them off a high building.Try to get in a mission where you are fighting on rooftops, then nock off an Enclave to the streets below. Be careful to keep an eye on your pass/fail condition (health of a buddy). A normal thunderclap usually knocks enemies back, but a charged straight punch can send them flying. A good chance to try this is the "We're not giving up - part 2" where a lot of enemies spawn on roofs. Knock the more powerful ones (barbaria) off with a charged thunderclap (not a full-rage clap, that may kill).
Knock an enemy a distance of at least 436 feet.Charge a punch and unleash it on a very weak enemy. You will get more distance if you knock them off of a rooftop. Throws do not count.
Find every landmark souvenir in New York City.When you hit the back button, you can see a map. On this map are black buildings (landmarks). If there is a brown dot inside this black building, you need to demolish the building and collect the token, if it is black then you already have it. There are 50 in total.
Find every Subway Station in New York.
There are 19 in total. They are identified by a yellow circle with an "S". You must touch it (almost go down the steps) or activate it to "find" it.
Check this post for the locations.
Climb to the top of the five tallest buildings in New York City.These are (in order):
- The Empire State Building
- Stark Tower
- The Chrysler Building
- American International Building
- Trump Building (not Tower)
Cross the tops of the flagpoles outside the U.N. Building.Jump and land on the top of the first flag and use sprint to run across the tops to the last flag. If one breaks, save and quit your game and try again.
Complete "We’re Not Giving Up – Part 2" without touching the ground.You just have to stay off the ground until Rick lands the helicopter. Once he lands, land in the green area ONLY (Otherwise you don't get it). Once you do, the achievement unlocks, and you have to kill the rest of the Enclave.
Keep in mind that the last bomb requires you to take it to Rick (whom is landing by the park), but you MUST jump from the top of the building to the green square. Landing on the lower part of the last building will invalidate this for you.
Gain access to all the upgrades.You get upgrades by doing various feats. In your upgrades menu, it will show you progress you have made towards all of them and what tricks or how many more points you need to obtain them. Absolutely everything is tracked here, so visit often.
Wipe out the Enclave's four sectors.
WARNING: DO NOT COMPLETE THIS UNTIL YOU HAVE DEFEATED 25 ENCLAVE ASSAULT GROUPS!
Some games have glitched, causing the forfeiture of "Patron of the Arts." For some, they still get groups after this; for others, the groups no longer appear.
In the course of (and once you complete) the Enclave missions, You will obtain a purple mission. Each one of these unlocks when a sector has completed a research phase. For the first two mission parts in each sector, you must destroy the base and surrounding enemies. For the last parts, When you have taken the base and enemies down, you will face off against that sector's leader.
For each boss, they will float around with a rod. When they stop, they will charge an attack at you. Jump up and rush-punch them a couple of times to knock them down. Unless they are getting ready to attack you, you will not damage them. After a bit of that, they will be knocked down to street level. Watch out for their initial attack, and when ready, use the reg. punch, hold heavy punch thunderclap move to stun them. When stunned, use a combo. Repeat as necessary to drain their health. Then repeat for the other sectors to wipe out the Enclave and unlock a chunk of concept art.
Note: To speed their research, defeat any assault group you see. To make it go extremely fast, replay the last mission from that sector. If you are trying to get the sector's second missio to appear, replay the first. If trying for the third, replay the second. The research bar will fill extremely fast.
Win a gold medal in every mini-game.
There are 23 mini-games total and they will unlock during the course of the story. To replay a mission (if you did not get gold the first try) open your map and use the D-pad left or right until the mini-games section comes up.
Check this post for a detailed description of each mini-game.
Trick a U-Foe into taking down one of his or her teammates.When facing the U-Foes (either in their mission or around the city), get X-Ray to low health and have Vector or Ironclad charge through them, delivering the final blow. This is mostly luck, but Vecto's power has a large radius so try and leave only those two alive and get them in close quarters.
Destroy a building in each New York City neighborhood.Each one of the neighborhoods on the map can be identified by its boundary square. Knock a building down when you are in each region. If you have finished "Enemy of the Empire State", you are well on your way.
Score 6,132,008 points.Smash your way to a the date of the theatrical release (06/13/2008). Finish the game and/or just sprint around killing things. See "Thrill-ionaire" for score tip.
Destroy every building in a New York City neighborhood.Same as "Apprentice of disaster", just clear out a whole region. Wear comfortable pants, and you must do this in one sitting... buildings regenerate after restarting the console. Stick with Spanish Harlem as it is the narrowest section. If there is a section with less buildings, let me know.
- I find it easiest to line up semi-parallel to the base of a building, jumping slightly up and doing a charging punch. If you do it right, the length of the wall will be mostly destroyed.
- xtremerocker says: Replay the mission where missiles lock on to your feet and run round the buildings. A couple of hits will bring them down easy.
Defeat every type of enemy at least once.There are rumors that this is buggy, but once you beat the game and take down all of the Enclave bosses, you should get this achievement (as you have defeated every type of enemy). For most, this won't unlock without killing a normal ASAC unit (Threat level 2 robots).
Sprint a total distance of at least 26.2 miles (138,435ft).After unlocking the sprint ability, use it often (you will, don't worry). If you MUST grind this, use the expressway or double up with your "Pickin' Up The Pieces" goal by running though the city knocking over picnic tables and streetlights.
Defeat at least 1 enemy with each class of attack.Try every combo and special move in your "Upgrades->MOVES" list.
Smash 10,000 things.This will come naturally during play, but just run or jump around and you will destroy objects. I especially like running through a bunch of picnic tables and having the strike teams enabled. Because we all know how important to Manhattan picnic tables under a highway are.
Crush 10 enemies by throwing either a taco, an ice cream cone or a doughnut.In certain areas of the city, when you have a strike team on you, delivery vans will have one of these giant items on them. Keep yourself at threat level 1 and throw these food items at the weak human soldiers (I recommend doing 5 of each, as they count toward feats, which unlock upgrades, which you must get anyway).
Win a story mission without defeating any enemies.You can do this on any mission where the requirements do not include defeating enemies or defend xxxx. I did this on the mission where you have to find the transmitter in the army bases. Just knock down the bunkers, pick up the transmitter, and chuck it into Central Park Lake without killing the army members.
Complete "The Problem is the Hulk - Part 3" without being hit by a lightning blast.You begin the level with a big red laser trying to make friends with your backside. When it locks on, it will fire a lightning bolt (that takes away 75% of your life). When the light locks on, jump and charge punch to get out of the way. When it fires, Rick can track the dish that controls it. Climb a taller, sturdy building next to it. The light will lock on here as well, but moving left or right will cause it to miss. If your building is not so sturdy, the lightning strike will knock the building down, forcing you to climb another. Jump to the satellite dish pit and line up a vertical slam to the dish. Hop out because the laser will still go after you. NEVER stop moving. Repeat this a few times and the satellite will crash into the park. Take out the surrounding turrets and finish that thing off.
Shut down the Enclave's biotech group.See "Para-Gone!"
Shut down the Enclave's weather manipulation division.See "Para-Gone!"
Shut down the Enclave's psych-ops branch.See "Para-Gone!"
Shut down the Enclave's mechanical design corps.See "Para-Gone!"
Find all the Gamma Canisters hidden in New York City.Credit goes to BlueGoggles at wikicheats (and aCzarX for fixes) for this map.
See this post for the map.
TIP: Search for canisters before anything else! This way you won't have grabbed any during missions and everything will be in place when using the map. Now, open the map in the program Paint or something similar. Every time you collect a canister, use the eraser tool to erase it off the map. Every time you save your game, save the map to your desktop so everything matches up. Do not save the map without saving your game! I saved the map once and then my game froze and I lost all my progress on the canisters, but a bunch were now erased off my map and I didn't know which ones.
Find all the Fury Canisters hidden in New York City.See "PPO'd"
Get the Enclave off your back.What you need is to let one of the brutes with the stun rod hit you with an attack that will knock you down, while 2 or more brutes are close by. He will put his foot on your back, while the others jump in. i got it three times in a row, by letting him knock me down. The regular brutes don't seem to be able to knock you down, so look for the ones with the stun rods.Just fast-tap whatever button it asks to fill the bar, Hulk will knock them all off and unlock the achievement.
Stick 25 auto-wrecks to buildings.Destroy a car (it'll turn black after 3 hits) then pick it up. Throw it full force over your head into a building (Glass works best). Repeat 24 more times.
Smash as much as possible in one trip to Brazil.
You MUST destroy every little thing (including the A/C ducts above) in this factory (this is the opening mission).
You can go back to this. Open up the map, and switch to the main story missions by hitting left or right on the D-pad. The mission is called "He must not escape."
View every piece of concept art at least once.You must unlock all of the art pieces before you can view them (Including beating all of the story missions) To find out he requirements, check your upgrades menu and scroll to the bottom. For a couple of pieces of art, you need the Iron Man game save. Make sure you stay on a piece of art for about a full 2 seconds...give the game time to register that you viewed it.
Score 1,000,000 points while Strike Teams are active.Same as "Now Playing", but when a strike team has been assembled. You know you are getting these points because your points + meter on the left will be red. Rule of thumb: You can only get these points from Threat level 1 until the level before the maximum you've unlocked.If you wait until you can get to Threat Level 9, a single powered up Thunder Clap in the middle of the Hulkbusters and some buildings can net you around 1.5 million points per clap.
With a friend like this . . .There are two methods:Super-quick: Have an Iron Man save game on your hard drive. Rent it, beat a mission and save. I have confirmed this is profile-based. You must have played Iron Man on the same profile you need this achievement for. This will unlock as soon as you start the game if you have an Iron Man save on your hard drive, from your profile.Other: Get to threat level 9 and defeat a Hulkbuster. But, you still need the Iron Man save for "Patron of the Arts."
