Here's a good achievement for Battlefield 3 players who are tackling the co-op campaign. In the last level of the campaign, "The Eleventh Hour", you're tasked with diffusing a bomb before it blows up a subway station.
Every Modern Warfare game has had bits of enemy intel for you to recover, and they're always hidden within the level. The few pieces I've uncovered across the series has always been through dumb luck. But if you want that 'Scout Leader' achievement, you'll have to find all 46 pieces of intel throughout the entire single player campaign.
To understand how mind-blowing this achievement is for me, it should be known that Metal Gear Solid 2 is one of my favorite games ever made. Like, in the history of video games, this is probably my second favorite game of all time. I know every where secret, item, and Easter egg is in this game. So when I saw the footage for this achievement in the video below, you'll understand why I screamed like a girl.
Talk about a tough challenge with very little reward. The '50x Combo' achievement in Batman: Arkham City is hard to get. Like, stupidly hard. What you have to do to get this achievement is get a 50x combo without taking any damaged.
Another great thing about Batman: Arkham City? The rogues gallery! Every great villain from Batman's history shows up in the game, and it's always awesome when they do turn up. Even Mr. Freeze, my least favorite of Batman's enemies, is kind of cool in the game (see what I did there?).
The latest in the Legend of Zelda series, Skyward Sword, released a few short weeks ago to very little fanfare. I have no idea why that is, because the game is absolutely gorgeous and pretty darn good. Maybe it was the fact that Nintendo forced motion controls in to this one, or maybe it was because everyone is busy playing Skyrim/Modern Warfare 3/Battlefield 3. Whatever the reason, if you even remotely like the Zelda series, give this one a whirl.
Further proving I need to start the College of Winterhold quest line already, here comes this achievement tutorial for 'The Eye of Magnus'. This is the last main quest for the College of Winterhold, and the coolest looking quest in the storyline. In true fantasy fashion, there's a really evil wizard looking to uproot all of reality, and you're tasked with taking him down for good. Here's a tip, though: shoot The Eye of Magnus with The Staff of Magnus so you're able to directly attack Ancano.
If you're crafty with a sniper rifle, this achievement is for you. In order to get 'Bullseye', you have to take out all of the bad guys in the level "Drop 'em Like Liquid" without alerting anyone to your presence. Good luck with that, by the way. If you manage to pull this off, you'll be rewarded with 20G on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3.
In the level "Going Hunting", you take control of the co-pilot of an F-18 Hornet tasked with shooting down enemy planes. To get the 'You Can Be My Wingman Anytime' achievement, you'll need a perfect playthrough of the level. That means you don't get hit, and all the enemy planes are shot down without running out of ammo. Do this, and you'll get 30G on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3. If you need some guidance, check out the video below.
After months of waiting, it seems the Xbox 360 interface update has finally arrive. I can't wait to go home and test it, though many complain it slows the system down and has nothing new, just better navigation. Hmm.
YouTuber sockcornnoodles is a punk. Not only does he have the best user name ever, but he's able to make it through a single chapter of Super Meat Boy without dying. Which also got him the 'Iron Boy!' achievement, worth a measly 10G on Xbox 360.
This looks like a nice little challenge for any Assassin's Creed: Revelations players out there. To get the 'Lightning Strike' achievement, you need to take out five guards in five seconds or less using your hidden blades.
Here's a tougher achievement for you guys to get in Battlefield 3. In the level "Thunder Run", you take control of a big friggin' tank. Use it to take down six enemy tanks before you reach the fort, and you'll get 25G on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3.
Here are two pretty quick and easy achievements for Battlefield 3. You're welcome, by the way. To get the story-specific 'Not On My Watch' achievement, load up the level "Operation Swordbreaker". All you do is provide covering fire so that your buddies can get out safely. Do this, and you'll net 20G on Xbox 360, and a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3.
Here's an easy one for you Battlefield 3 fans out there. This is the achievement 'Twofor', and it's the easiest 15G, or bronze trophy you could ever get. Load up the level Night Shift, and you'll see two guards standing right next to each other. All you need to do is take them both out with one shot. It's that easy!
Here's another great achievement tutorial for Battlefield 3. This one is for 'The Professional', which you get on the level "Comrades". What it asks of you is to complete the street chase in under 2 minutes 30 seconds. Seems easy enough. But if you take in to account all of the bad guys that stand in your way, suddenly the challenge went way up.
Trying to get all the achievements in Battlefield 3's single player campaign? You'll go nowhere without this handy guide to getting the poorly named 'Butterfly' achievement. Basically, you have to shoot down a plane on your first attempt with a Stinger missile on the level "Rock and a Hard Place". Seems easy, right?
Big fan of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's Spec-Ops mode? Then boy do I have the achievement guide for you. In what looks to be a pretty tough to get achievement to get, 'Serrated Edge' asks of you to take down a Juggernaut with your knife. Luckily, you're allowed to use as many flash grenades and pump him with as much lead as possible, as long as the final blow is with your knife.
The Standing Stones in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim are wonderful little additions to the game. Basically, they give your character modified attributes, or special abilities to give you the upper hand in the game. For example, if you activate The Mage Stone, you'll learn all of your magicka skills 20% faster. Long story short, they're awesome and you should find as many as possible.
As is the case with all of the games in the Uncharted series, trying to find all of the pieces of treasure in the game is an exercise in sudden hair loss and creative use of expletives. At least in my case.
Continuing the theme of "Let's get a bunch of achievements on the 'Halo' level", the 'No Fly Zone' achievement should be cake for seasoned Halo veterans. All you do is destroy three out of four banshees on the level "Halo", as demonstrated by the Achievement Hunters below.
In this awesome five-part series, the Achievement Hunters break down how to find every terminal and skull in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. Skulls have been gameplay modifiers, and have been a part of the series since Halo 2. Basically, you start a single player level off with a bunch of these guys on to drastically increase difficulty, change the way you play, or induce silliness. The terminals are a fairly recent addition to the series, and give a bunch of back-story on the different cha...
How To: Get the 'Walk It Off' and 'Overshields Are for Sissies' Achievements in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary
Tuesday was the tenth anniversary of the original Xbox. To celebrate, Microsoft released an HD enhanced version of the classic Halo as Halo CE: Anniversary. With updated graphics, remastered sound, and you guess it...Achievements!
This one goes perfectly with the 'Mosh Pit' achievement I posted about earlier today. To get the 'Monster Dance' achievement in Assassin's Creed: Revelations, you have to get a guard to incapacitate three civilians.
Any daredevils out there? This one is for you. The 'Almost Flying' achievement in Assassin's Creed: Revelations looks absolutely awesome to try. You'll have to parachute from the top of the Galata Tower (which I think is the highest point in the game), and fly all the way to the golden horn.
Is the Iron Curtain achievement in Assassin's Creed: Revelations getting you down? Well here, have an easier one to try out. The 'Mosh Pit' calls for ten guards to be poisoned at the same time. Do that, and you'll net a cool 20G on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3.
Today continues an overload of Assassin's Creed: Revelations posts, so let's begin! This is a lengthy video guide that comes from PowerPyx to get the Iron Curtain achievement. What seems like a herculian task will only net you 20G on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3. What gives, Ubisoft?
There's a certain achievement in Assassin's Creed: Revelations that springs up whenever the games chooses to. The Tax Evasion achievement is only worth 10G on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3, but boy is it fun.
So you just got Assassin's Creed: Revelations yesterday, and you're loving it. Awesome! But, oh no, what's this? You can't find all of the Memoir Pages to unlock the Hagia Sophia level? What do you do?
Today, I'm dedicating to the Assassin's Creed fans out there. Yesterday saw the release of the latest in the series, Assassin's Creed: Revelations. In honor of that release, we here at Achievement Arcade would like to give the fans every advantage you can get.
To be honest, I haven't played an Assassin's Creed game since the first one way back in 2007. So, the fact that there is a character named Duccio kind of makes me want to play the new one, Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Add to that, the fact you can get 20G if you're playing on Xbox 360, or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3 if you beat the tar out of him...well, color me interested!
Having trouble getting the 'Nein' achievement in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? Then let the Achievement Hunters help you out! What seems to be a pretty simple 20G Xbox 360 achievement, or bronze PlayStation 3 trophy, is actually pretty tough to get. I wish I had this video last night as I finished the game, as it took a few tries to get this achievement.
It may not be the most epic of quests in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but it's one that's worth taking up. Getting married not only gets you 20G on Xbox 360 or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3, but you also get some cool in-game bonuses. Your wife (or husband, depending on gender or sexual orientation) will cook you a hot meal every day that restores your health fully, and she or he will even give you gifts sometimes!
Because I like all of you so much, here's two achievements for the price of one! They're both on the level "Black Tuesday" of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and they're pretty easy to get, too.
I remember playing this part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 fondly. Not because you take control of an awesome remote-controlled grenade shooting robot, but because I died toward the end of the level and had to restart back at the beginning of the robot section. Stupid checkpoints.
Remember going to see Inception last summer and dreaming of playing a game where you'd fight dudes in zero gravity like Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Well, you can in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3! Not only that, but there's 20G on Xbox 360 or a bronze trophy on PlayStation 3 in it if you complete that section of the game taking out all of the bad guys.
There's a lot that you can do in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Sure, you can do the predictable thing and be a gay cat-man that shouts at dragons to death. But you can also take on even the most mundane of tasks. Want to make pies for twenty hours? There's an oven right over there, get baking. How about living an honest life as a blacksmith? Well, by golly, you can do it!
If you're a good shot, this is the achievement for you. In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on the "Back to the Grid" level, you gain access to a mortar to hold off a few waves of enemies. But the trick to getting the achievement and 20G, or bronze trophy if you're on PlayStation 3, is to take out all of the bad guys using only four shells.
This is one of those achievements that takes some time. How much, you ask? Well, it spans the entire single player game, so quite some time. The Achievement Hunters are on the case, though. In the videos below, you'll see how to gather all of the enemy intel in the first two-thirds of the game. But what about the last act of the game?! They're working on it, and once it's up I'll be updating this post to include it.
I was never one for the Zombies mode in Treyarch's Call of Duty games (World at War and Black Ops), but I know a lot of people love that mode. So this one if for you guys.
