Welcome to Unreal Tournament 3. This game has 50 achievements for 1000
You do not need to be an first-person shooter god to complete this game, however, you will need some skill. The estimated time and difficulty to achieve the full 1000 in this game is based on the methods recommended in this guide. For example, boosting the 500 ranked wins. Earning them legit will be near impossible, as no one plays this online anymore.

Despite the fact many achievements say you must complete them in multiplayer, most of these can be completed during the campaign. This includes all the weapon achievements, Hat Trick, Sir Slays a Lot, Being a Hero, Serial Killer, Kill Joy, Off to a Good Start and the four power up achievements. You can also begin work on Like the Back of My Hand. Become familiar with what you need to do in each of these achievements and throughout your campaign on Casual work towards these. It will save you time later. On any VCTF map ensure you get a kill with each vehicle for Jack of All Trades and in warfare matches return orbs as much as possible to get Being a Hero

For Like the Back of My Hand I used the following guides to make life easier. They are not the stickied guides, but a compilation thereof. The first is the two sticky guides combined into one, which is much easier, the second includes the missing information for the VCTF and Warfare maps. All credits are listed in the posts.

The following steps can be done in any order or in conjunction with each other.

Step 1: Get a Life...
Since you need to get 200 kills on 50 days I suggest you begin working on this achievement immediately. This can obviously be done in conjunction with all steps below. There is a quick way to do this also, get your 200 kills for the day, then quit to dashboard, change your time zone, (system settings > console > time zone) to the next or previous day. Then get 200 more kills. Switch it back, rinse and repeat. The quickest way to 200 kills is to set up a Deathmatch game on the Morbias map, with 16 novice bots, time limit 10 minutes, the beserk mutator and the weapon select mutator set to all enforcers. You should get around 250 kills in that 10 minute match and will likely get the Pistolero, Sir Slays a Lot, Serial Killer and Kill Joy achievements quite easily.

Step 2: Campaign
Whilst I have said the minimum number of playthroughs is one, you will likely play the game through twice. Once single player, once co-op. This is not necessary, if you can find someone nice to help you. Assuming you do it co-op, begin the campaign on Casual as the Insane achievements are dependent only on the final match of each chapter. When you reach the final stage in each chapter quit to the menu, and continue your campaign changing the difficulty to Insane. This will ensure you achieve all campaign achievements in a single playthrough. Follow this guide to ensure that you don’t miss the last stage as you cannot select it from replay chapter to get the achievement.

You MUST get it during the playthrough or else you will have to restart the entire campaign.

By the end of the campaign you should have all chapter achievements and insane achievements as well as the co-op achievements for a total of 380 . You will likely also have achieved several of the weapon achievements if you have been working on them as well as Sir Slays a Lot, Serial Killer, Off to a Good Start and Kill Joy if you haven’t gotten them already.

If you do not have a partner, then complete the campaign in solo using the Insane switch method, then run back through it with a second controller signed in on casual the whole way. Unless you are amazing, you will not beat the Insane levels with a dead controller.

Step 3: Instant Action
You must play a instant action game with each mutator using only one per game. Simple. Set the game to minimum kills/flags/points, novice bots and the mutator of your choice. When you reach the Weapon Replacement mutator follow the achievement guide to get Untouchable. You will also get Spice of Life achievement at the end

Step 4: Muliplayer (Local)
You must win a game on every map in every game type.
Note: You DO NOT need to complete all the maps in TDM or Duel. Completing the maps in DM counts. Just play one game in each of these game types to satisfy the Lets Get It On requirements.

Either work towards the 100 games of DM/Warfare/CTF/VCTF by setting your game up appropriately, or set it to minimum kills/points to win to burn through it. Use this opportunity to complete Like the Back of My Hand and if you set your DM games to 20 wins work on your outstanding weapons/powerups achievements. Any kills achieved in this process count towards your 200 for that day so set up your time zone accordingly before you start.

If you choose not to actively work on the 100 wins for a gametype, then set up a match to the relevant score (or just higher as the AI sometimes won’t close you out) for 10 minutes, 2 godlike bots, Speed Freak Mutator. Leave your controller plugged in and wander off to do something else or leave it on while you sleep. This will take longer, but you are not actively involved.

Step 5: Multiplayer (Online)
You’ll need a good boosting parter for this. 500 ranked wins is easiest in Duel and let the non host quit out to give the host the win. Be warned that you must see the “saving” icon appear for the game to count. Some gamers have reported this not happening, so quit to your dashboard and restart. This will net you Just Warming Up, Winning is the Only Thing and Ranked Champion. For Equal Opportunity Destroyer you will need six players to complete a win in all gametypes

Unreal is not a difficult game to achieve the 1000 but it is time consuming and relies on having a quality boosting partner to complete. If you don’t have a good boosting buddy, you could be left at around 930 . Hopefully with this road map and the achievement guide you will get there. Good luck!

There are 50 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Complete Chapter 1.


    For this just complete chapter 1 in campaign offline or online. This is basically 1 short deathmatch played to 20 kills I would advise going through on casual first to get a feel for the game.

  • Complete Chapter 2.


    Just complete chapter 2 in the campaign which will take some time but not too much and you will get this.

  • Complete Chapter 3.


    Play through and complete chapter 3 in the campaign, you will get this in time.

  • Complete Chapter 4.


    Finish chapter 4. The game does get a bit harder at this point so use your cards that you get in missions if you get stuck.

  • Defeat Akasha and complete the campaign.


    For this you will have to get to the end of chapter 5 then you will have a fight against Akasha. You will have to get 20 kills before you beat her and get the achievement. If she is losing to you on casual after 13 kills she will turn into a masterful bot, on normal she will be godlike. So if you can't do it get a buddy to help you.

  • Complete Chapter 2 in Insane.


    You must complete these chapters on insane difficulty. Or... You can play up to the last level on each chapter and then quit out, select continue and change the difficulty to insane. In effect it cuts your work down a lot. It will still be quite hard though as the bots are godlike and can teleport anywhere and can dodge like hell.

    Full list of missions here:

    NOTE: There are some parts where you can choose of two missions and depending on which order you do the missions, the final mission of each chapter WILL be different than someone who took a different path. Chapter two has a total of four different missions that could be the final one. The other chapters may also have a different selection. Follow the guide above to be safe if you're using the difficulty changing trick.

  • Complete Chapter 3 in Insane.


    See "Just business"

  • Complete Chapter 4 in Insane.


    See "Just business"

  • Defeat Akasha and complete the campaign in Insane.


    See "Just business"

  • Complete 1 mission in co-op.


    Just complete 1 mission in co-op offline or online in the campaign.

  • Complete 10 missions in co-op.


    Just complete 10 missions in co-op offline or online in the campaign.
    You will get this if you're going through the whole campaign easy.

  • Complete a campaign in co-op.


    Complete the campaign with someone offline or online. Just go through all the chapters if you want to get the other co-op achievements as well.
    Play through and defeat Akasha at the end of chapter 5 and you will get this.

  • Complete an Instant Action match in every game mode.

    Go into Instant Action and just play 1 game of Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, CTF, VCTF, Warfare and Duel. If you are after this in a hurry put the time to 5 minutes, 5 kills ect.

  • Reach 20 kills against a god-like bot in instant action without dying.

    Go into Instant Action and set up a game of Duel vs 1 godlike bot. Choose map Heat Ray and put on mutator "Weapon Replacement" and edit it and put everything on Impact Hammer and game score to 20. Now you want to hide from the bot and don't let it kill you once. After a few minutes (2:45) a Dark Walker will be brought to a platform near the train tracks. Get in it and destroy the bot 20 times without dieing. After the match is over the achievement will unlock.

  • Collect every power up on every map.


    This is going to take a long time as there are loads of maps. This link will help: POWER UP LOCATIONS.

    It appears the German version of the game has a slightly different description for this achievement, which states "(shield, health)" after the initial portion, so this will take a lot longer than expected. The thread above should be updated when it is confirmed.

  • Play a match with every mutator, using only 1 per match.


    Play Instant Action matches with every mutator, if you have played Deathmatch and used all the mutators 1 per game and you have not got this don't panic as there is 4 more in CTF, Warfare, Duel and TDM. When you finish playing a match with the last mutator the achievement will unlock.
    Here is a list and and gamemodes you should play them on as to not get confused. Work your way through this list and you will get it. Remember it is only 1 per match.

    Big Head
    Kills Slow Time (Instant Action ONLY)
    Low Gravity
    No Super Pickups
    Slo Mo
    Speed Freak
    Super Berserk
    Weapon Replacement
    Weapons Respawn

    Team Deathmatch:
    Friendly Fire

    No Orbs

    No Translocator


  • Get the "Head Hunter" award in 10 matches.


    Set up a multiplayer match of Deathmatch with max novice bots. Put on the mutator "Weapon Replacement" and edit it and set all the guns to Sniper Rifles. Set the kill limit to 20 and the map to Rising Sun. Then just kill the bots 20 times with a headshot. Do this 9 more times for the achievement. Note: You get the award when you get 15 kills but I suggest you do it to 20 kills so you can get "Paint the town red" and other achievements quicker. Also you can't get these in Instant Action, so remember that!

    Alternately, you can use the Morbias map against one Novice bot with SloMo and Weapon Replacement mutators turned on and force respawn set to "Yes". If you stand near the middle, the bot will often spawn down the same tunnel for most of the match and you can easily get 20 kills in less than five minutes. The SloMo makes it easier to hit the headshot if he insists on moving.

    This video explains how to setup the match and use the Weapon Replacement mutator. Do this for every other achievement, choosing whatever weapon you need for the achievement.


  • Get the "Combo King" award in 10 matches.


    Same as "Brain Surgeon" but you need to get the kills with a Shock Combo. No headshots are needed, just kills. The shock combo is done by using the Shock Rifle's alt. attack () then shooting the orb with () making an explosion that kills the enemy.

  • Get the "Biohazard" award in 10 matches.


    Same as "Brain Surgeon" but you need to get the kills with the Bio Rifle. No headshots are needed, just kills.

    Note: You cannot choose this gun in the mutator "Weapon Replacement" so you will have to find it in a match. The normal map Rising Sun has one at the back of the level. You can also use Koos Barge which has a Bio Rifle next to the middle divider. This is easier if you set all other weapons to Impact Hammer.

  • Get the "Gun Slinger" award in 10 matches.


    Same as "Brain Surgeon" but you need to get the kills with the Enforcer. No headshots are needed, just kills.

  • Get the "Blue Streak" award in 10 matches.


    Same as "Brain Surgeon" but you need to get the kills with the Mini Gun. No headshots are needed, just kills.

  • Get the "JackHammer" award in 10 matches.


    Same as "Brain Surgeon" but you need to get the kills with the Impact Hammer. No headshots are needed, just kills.

  • Get the "Shaft Master" award in 10 matches.


    Same as "Brain Surgeon" but you need to get the kills with the Link Gun alternative fire (). No headshots are needed, just kills.

  • Get the "Rocket Scientist" award in 10 matches and "Flak Master" award in 10 matches.


    Same as "Brain Surgeon" but you need to get the kills with the Flak Cannon and Rocket Launcher. No headshots are needed, just kills. Note: This is just 2 achievements stuck together, so they can be done in seperate matches like the other weapon ones. If you're after "Painting the town red" and such other achievements this will count for 20 of those games played.

  • Get the "Big Game Hunter" award in 10 matches.


    Same as "Brain Surgeon" but you need to get the kills with the Avril. No headshots are needed, just kills. Note: You cannot choose this gun in the mutator "Weapon Replacement" so a different approach is to use a second controller and set up a VCTF on Rails with no bots. The Avril on the ground in the loop of road your base surrounds. You can go to the enemy base and in two of the buildings that overlook their central road there is ammo that respawns for the Avril, making this much easier. Definitely one of the longer weapon kill achievements, however.

     You can work on this achievement at the same time as Armadillo, Ace, and Deathwish also since they can all be done on this map. If you set the flags to 3, it will also help you progress toward 30 Minutes Or Less.

  • Get the "Roadkill" award in 10 matches


    Set up a game with you and a second controller, no bots and map Suspence. Then just run the other player down 4 times to get this award. Play it on VCTF to 1 capture, so when you get it you only have to capture the flag once. Repeat 9 more times to unlock.

  • Kill an enemy with every vehicle (except hoverboard).


    Setup a VCTF to 1 capture with novice bots and on any map in multiplayer. Before starting your game change your character in the main menu to be Axon. Then when setting up the match make the bots Necris. When in the game use all the vehicles on your team (killing at least 1 enemy in each one) and finish the game. In the next match do the same again but change your character to Necris and the bots to Axon. Keep repeating this method if you don't get the achievement straight away as you may have to go to a few different maps to have access to other vehicles and turrets. You can look if have killed someone in a vehicle or turret in your stats. You can't run them down as it doesn't count.

    Axon and Necris vehicles are:

    Axon vehicles:

    Necris vehicles:
    Dark Walker

    Turret (counts as a vehicle so use it!)

  • Ace



    Get the "Top Gun" award in 20 matches.


    Start a mutiplayer game and a map with flying vehicles (VCTF, Sandstorm) with another controller or friend. Then get the other player to fly in the air and leave it. Get your character and fly up and shoot the other player/controller in the air. Do this 19 more times in different matches.

  • Get "Bullseye" (self-destruct to destroy an enemy) award in 20 matches.


    Start a multiplayer game with vehicles and find a Viper, find a enemy and just blow yourself up in the vehicle. This is activated by holding the jump button () and pressing the alt. fire (). Repeat in 19 different games to unlock.

  • Have over 20 minutes of "Berserk Time".


    Find the Berserk power up on a map in multiplayer and wait for it to respawn and then rinse and repeat. It takes super powerups around 90 seconds to respawn. You could get this more easily with another controller as you don't have to be worried about getting attacked. Setting to game to 1 hour will help.
    Note: You can also get this by just standing where the powerup respawns and then doing other things like watching TV until you get it.

    Here is a link to a thread on the locations of powerups: POWER UP LOCATIONS.

  • Have over 20 minutes of "Invisibility Time".


    Same as "Seeing Red" but with the Invisibility powerup.

  • Have over 10 minutes of "Invulnerable Time".


    Same as "Seeing Red" but with the Invulnerable powerup and for 10 minutes instead of 20.

  • Have over 20 minutes of "UDamage Time".


    Same as "Seeing Red" but with the UDamage powerup.

  • Achieve a Hat Trick in 10 CTF or VCTF matches.


    Start up a game on the map Facing Worlds on CTF, 3 flags to win, multiplayer. Start a game with another controller so there is only two players in the game. Then just keep using your translocator over the centre bridge to get to the other base easier. Bring back 3 flags in a game and boom Hat Trick! Do this 9 more times.

  • Return 100 Orbs in Warfare matches.


    Orbs are those weird floating glowing ball things in Warfare matches. If you see a ememy orb in a multiplayer match run up to it and hold () to destroy it. Do it 99 more times. You can boost this with a second controller or friend.

  • Completed 100 CTF matches played to at least 3 captures.


    You can boost with 16 bots or play these normally in mutiplayer. If you're going for "Around the World" or "Hat Trick" then that will count for about 20 of these matches.

    Note: You can also do this and other complete 100 match games by setting up a game with just you against a couple of godlike bots, then going off and doing something else until it unlocks.

  • Complete 100 VCTF matches played to at least 3 captures.


    You can boost with 16 bots or play these normally in mutiplayer. If you're going for "Around the World", "Hat Trick", Jack of all Trades", "Armadillo" "Ace" and "Deathwish" then completing them will either get this along the way or you will be close. Also see Note: in "Flag waver".

  • Complete 100 Deathmatch or Duel matches played to at least 20 kills.


    You can boost with 16 bots or play these normally in mutiplayer. If you're boosting just set up a small Deathmatch with 16 bots on Rising Sun to 20 kills. I would do the weapon achievements at the same time and get them out of the way while you're doing this. Also see Note: in "Flag waver".

  • Complete 100 Warfare matches played to at least 3 points.


    I would advise you do this with bots or another controller as you could also aim for "Being a Hero" while doing these matches. If your doing "Around the World" that will contribute a lot to this. I would not do this legit with other players online as Warfare games can take an age to finish if both teams are of equal skill. Also see Note: in "Flag waver".

  • Get the "Killing Spree" award in 20 matches.


    Get 5 kills in a row in a match without dieing to get the Killing Spree award. This needs to be done once in a match over the course of 20 matches. You will get this very fast if you're doing the weapon kill achievements.

  • Get the "Monster Kill" award in 20 matches.


    This is how this works:
    Double Kill - 2 people killed within 4 seconds.
    Multi Kill - 3rd person killed within 4 seconds of a Double Kill.
    Mega Kill - 4th person killed within 4 seconds of a Multi Kill.
    Ultra Kill - 5th person killed within 4 seconds of a Mega Kill.
    Monster Kill - 6th person killed within 4 seconds of a Ultra Kill.
    Do this with max bots on Rising Sun and gamemode Deathmatch in multiplayer with the mutator "Super Berserk" on.
    Get it 20 times to unlock.

  • End sprees in 20 matches.


    A spree is 5 or more kills without dieing. Ending that is killing a person after they have got 5 or more kills without being killed.
    You could set up a second controller in multiplayer on Rising Sun and kill your main character 5 times and then kill the second controller or player to get the award. Do this 19 more times in different matches. If you have a spree you can also kill yourself and still get this award so if you want to do it that way you can.

  • Get the "First Blood" award in 40 matches.


    Get the first kill in a multiplayer match 40 times (once per game). Should come easily if your boosting for the gun kill achievements or any others with novice bots.

  • Complete a multiplayer match in every game type.


    Must be done in multiplayer non ranked matches. Just play every game type, there are only 5 in total so this should come very easily.

  • Win a multiplayer match on every map.


    You will get this achievement in a matter of time if your going for the weapon achievements, played games or ones like "Hat Trick" or any others. Just keep changing maps and gamemodes and setting the modes to achievement requirements like 3 flags and 20 points ect. Choose novice bots to play against for this.
    If you want this fast just play novice bots to the lowest requirement for the game (such a 5 kills or 1 capture).
    This is not recommended though if you have not unlocked the weapon kill achievements or the 100 games played ones.

  • Get 200 kills in multiplayer on 50 different days.


    Get 200 kills in a day on 50 different days. This does not have to be done in a row.
    I would advise playing loads of novice bot games until you achieve 200 kills and then have a rest until the next day (or whenever) and rinse and repeat. Do this in multiplayer matches. A good tip is not to play close to midnight and I would advise to play on Rising Sun with max bots on Deathmatch to 20 (10 times to 200). You could also work towards other achievements when doing this.

  • Finish playing a "Versus" Ranked match.

    Just finish a ranked match on any game mode.

  • Finish with the highest points in a Ranked match.

    Basically win a ranked game on any mode. If your playing CTF, VCTF or Warfare make sure you keep doing objctives as thats the most points.

  • Win a Ranked match in every game type.

    Just play all 5 game modes and win in each one. Team games are easier because you have a 50/50 chance more or less.

  • Win 500 Ranked matches.

    Win 500 ranked matches in any game mode. Try and play Duel one on one and see if anyone wants to boost, if not quit and try again.
