I just wanted to give something to the gaming community as so many other kind people have done before me. This is my very first guide so it probably isn't as good as it could be but if you have any problems at all with this guide or think that anything should be changed please contact me. My details are in the contact section. ############################################################ ## Achievements [2A] ## ############################################################ All the achievements listed within in the sub-sections are in alphabetical order for easy finding so if there is an achievement you need help with then it is easily findable. Good luck with trying for the achievements. ================================= == Offline Achievements [2AOF] == ================================= This sub-section covers the offline achievements in the game. There are 14 offline achievements out Turoks total 43 achievements. The offline achievents amount to 375G. == 5,4,3,2,1...BOOM! == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Kill 3 soldiers with a single frag grenade in story mode. This is an easy enough achievement and from my experience it is best done on the level Bad Blood. Keep going through the level until you get into the enemies base. Keep going through the base until you come to a room with some monitors. At this bit Turok should comment on the planet being terra-formed or something of the like. Grab some grenades if you don't already have some. There are some on the shelves. Now proceed left and down the stairs and you should see a small group of soldiers round the corner. Throw your grenade and watch as your achievement unlocks. If you didn't get it just restart from the last checkpoint and try again. == Angler Ribbon == Gamerscore : 20G How To Unlock : Beat the sea creature on the 'Down And Out' level. You'll get this achievement just by going through the game. The sea creature is a boss on the 'Down And Out' level. It isn't too hard too beat as it has a predictable attack pattern. Here's how to beat it if you're stuck. Before you fight the monster stock up on the napalm grenades and flamethrower ammo that is lying round. When the fight starts throw all your grenades and shoot all your napalm grenades (the flamethrowers secondary fire) at the monster. This should get you some easy damage on it from the get go. The monster should now start swinging at you with its tentacles. Simply jump over them and you should be fine. After doing this three times it should dive underwater then re-appear. Take note of which of the vents has gas coming out of it because that's the one you need to stand behind. It should start as the rightmost one then travel left to the leftmost one and then back again if I remember correctly. The creature should now lung at you. As it does flamethrower the vent so it explodes in the monsters face. You might get hurt when it lunged at you but it doesn't matter as you'll recover quickly. After you've hurt it some more it should start throwing rock at you. These can be quite awkward to dodge but it doesn't really matter because it one hits you your health will have recovered by the time the next rock hits you. Wait until it goes underwater then re-appears again. Hide behing the currently exhaling vent the flamethrower it as the monster lunges for you. After you've hurt it further the monster will move onto its final stage of attack. It will grab 2 of the spires from the ceiling and throw them at you. This is the hardest bit of the fight. Try you best to roll to the side of them. It will throw 3 pairs at you. If 2 hit you consecutively your done for so keep on your toes. When it pops up after its dip in the water it will only lunge at you once before it goes at you again with the spires. Damage it a couple of times and watch it plunge to it's watery grave. == Big Game Ribbon == Gamerscore : 20G How To Unlock : Beat the T-Rex on the 'Mother Superior' level. As with the Angler Ribbon you will get this by just going through the story. You'll have to fight the T-Rex in the 'Mother Superior' level near the end just after Gonzales is eaten by the T-Rex and you fight off all the T-Rex babies. Here's how to beat her if you're stuck. As soon as the battle starts equip you're knife so you can run faster and head straight for underneath the tree in the middle. Avoid using the shot gun if you're going for the 'Sell Your Shotguns' achievement. Pulse Rifle works well here and so does the Sticky Gun if you have one from earlier on. Basically just stay under the tree, poking out when needed to shoot it. It may sometimes poke it head through underneath the tree so watch out. It shouldn't hurt you too much though and it gives you a good shot on its head. Just keep it up until it falls to the ground. Then quickly equip your knife and run up to it and press the trigger when the prompt appears on the screen to end the fight. == Dino Dominance == Gamerscore : 25G How To Unlock : Kill 50 creatures with the knife in story mode. This is probably going to be one of the first achievements you get as the knife is generally the preliminary means of disposing of raptors and like throughout the game. Just keep killing dinosaurs with the knife as you go and the it wont be long before the achievement pops up. If you haven't got this achievement and are going through it on inhuman this will be harder because dinosaurs are more difficult to knife on inhuman but it still shouldn't be hard. == Impaler Ribbon == Gamerscore : 10G How To Unlock : Pin an enemy to the wall with an arrow in story mode. Easy achievement. Just pull back on the bow for a while to build up some strength and let loose on an enemy that's standing near a wall to pin him right up against it. If you can't find a good place to do this refer to the section for the 'Pincushion' achievement for details. == It's A Trap! == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Lure dinosaurs to kill 5 enemies by sticking a flare to them in story mode. I found the best level to do this on was Reunions. Right as the level starts, just after Turoks flashback to training in Wolf Pack set off forwards into the grass. I recommend stealthily knife killing the guard that it right in front of you as you step into the grass. There should be a log leading up to a little raised section to your left. Walk across the log and onto this section. Then get your shotgun out and aim at one of the enemies below then shoot a flare (the shotguns secondary fire) into one of them. A raptor should come from the left and start attacking him. After the raptor has had it's way with the soldier press start and then save your current progress. This will save your current number of soldiers you've lured a dinosaur to. After it's saved restart from the last checkpoint and repeat another 4 times. After you've lured your fifth dinosaur to attack the achievement should pop up. == Loud Love == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Kill 3 enemies with a single Rocket Launcher shot in story mode. This is easy enough. At anytime where you have a rocket launcher in the game and there are a group of enemies just fire and say hello to the achievement. This is easily done when a group of enemies are being dropped off by a helicopter. Just aim at where it's dropping them off and your set. There are multiple opportunities throughout the game to do this so it shouldn't be too much trouble. == Man Or Animal == Gamerscore : 30G How To Unlock : Kill 100 soldiers with the knife. This achievement is easy on the Bad Blood level. Journey through the level until you enter the enemies base. Slade should then split up from you and there will be a checkpoint. As you go through the door get your knife out as there are four enemies waiting to be done over in this room. The first one is too your right behind the first set of boxes. He's an easy kill. The other 3 shouldn't be hard to pick off. After you've taken care of all the soldier in this room proceed to the next where there should be another 4 or 5 without having to go up the stairs. Take care of them all then press start the save your progress so that you don't lose all the kills you just racked up. Once it has saved restart from the last checkpoint and repeat until you unlock the achievement. It shouldn't take that long. Oh and one thing to mention. I'm sure that despite the achievement description the game gives you the kills don't have to be stealth. Almost half of mine were not stealth and I still got the achievement. == Pincushion == Gamerscore : 25G How To Unlock : Pin 50 enemies to the wall with arrows in story mode. This isn't as hard as a lot of people think it is. It's easy on the bad blood level. Keep going through the level until you enter the enemies base. When Slade splits up from you and you get a checkpoint the room through the doors is the place where all the pinning will be taking place. Get your bow out and go through the doors. Your first target is to your right behind the first set of boxes. Sneak up on him from the right and pin him against the boxes that he is facing. Now continue hugging the right wall and taking cover. You have 2 options now. Follow the guy that heading into the room to the left and pin when is next to the boxes or wait until a guy starts typing stuff into the just before the stairs at the end of the room and pin him instead. Sometimes you can get both. You'll probably won't be able to pin all the enemies but most of the time should at least get 2. After you've got some pins press start and save your progress. This will make sure you don't lose all the pins you just racked up. Once it's saved restart from the last checkpoint and repeat until the achievement is unlocked. == Sell Your Shotguns == Gamerscore : 35G How To Unlock : Complete the 'Mother Superior' level without using the shotgun. This is simple enough. I don't really see much use for the shotgun in this level anyways except for at the end where you lose your weapons and the dilophosaurus' attack but it's still easy enough to live without using them. It's probably best just not to keep a shotgun in your inventory just to avoid any mistakes. Just complete the level without firing it or using it's flares an you'll get the achievement. == Sniper! == Gamerscore : 40G How To Unlock : Headshot 10 enemies in a row in story mode. This achievement can actually be quite akward. You can't miss on shot once you get your first headshot in the streak. 10 in a row. I found the best level to do this on was End Of The Road. Go through the level until you get to the part where Reese get shot in the head by an arrow. When the video is finished and the battle begins immediately grab Reese's Sniper Rifle from next to his dead body and start picking off the enemies directly in front of you. You should get at least 1 before the rest eventually get taken out by Cowboy or run off because of the T-Rex attacking the base. Be careful and try to pick off more enemies as they appear at the gate. Don't go for the ones that have the T-Rex's attention as you could have a good shot ready and just as your firing they get picked up and eaten by the T-Rex. After the T-Rex leaves finish off any enemies left at the gate. Now get your last few kills by zooming in through the gate and snipering the troops waiting for you through there. Hopefully you got them all in the head and the achievement will pop up. The things that make this achievement so annoying are as follows. Sometimes you have a shot lined up and you'll either get shot as your shooting which will make your shot stray or cowboy will shot one you're aiming at just as your shooting and the enemy will waver making you miss. Also make sure you go for the center of the head just in case some shots that appear to be headshots sometimes aren't. Just keep it up and have patience. I know it's annoying if you get 9 then screw up but you'll get it eventually. == Turok Campaign Ribbon == Gamerscore : 60G How To Unlock : Complete the story mode on inhuman difficulty. Inhuman isn't that bad for the most of it but a few bits (I quiver at the thought of that elevator bit on Bad Blood) can be quite annoying indeed. Here's some tips on getting through the game on inhuman. * Cover is important. Some bits you'll just have to take you're time on because you're not getting through it any other way. Some enemies can kill you near instantly on inhuman so you may only have a split second to pop out before having to return to cover. Be careful. * Dinosaurs become a lot harder to kill with the knife so the Pulse Rifle may very well become your new method of dealing with them. * Speaking of Pulse Rifles they are always handy to carry and there disruption grenades can be handy for flushing sneaky enemies out from behind there cover. * Watch out for turrets they are pretty much instant death. The bow is a good way of dealing with them. Get them when they're not looking. Quickly pop out of cover then fire your arrow. I'll probably think of more later but I can just add those at another time if I think of some. But patience and trying out different strategies is the key to getting through certain parts of inhuman. == Turok Defense Force == Gamerscore : 25G How To Unlock : Fight off 20 raptor mauls in story mode. This wont take long. Go to a place where there is a lot of raptors and let them go for you. When raptors start trying to maul you just hit the indicated buttons like crazy to fight them off. After you've successfully managed to fight off twenty of them the achievement will pop up. == Turok Service Ribbon == Gamerscore : 40G How To Unlock : Complete the story mode on normal or hard difficulty. This isn't too hard. Just go through the story mode and you'll will get it at the end. Doing so also unlocks inhuman difficulty which is where the real challenge comes in. Refer to the 'Turok Campaign Ribbon' section for more info and tips on inhuman mode. ========================================================== == Online Achievements (Public/Private Matches) [2AONP] == ========================================================== This sub-section will cover all the online achievements that aren't ranked only achievements. Most of these achievements can be done in ranked matches as well as player matches but the how to unlock part will tell you the exact details as some can only be done in private matches and some only in player matches. Also most of these achievements can be got with a friend if they need them too (called boosting an achievement) if you want to go that route. There are 20 online public/private achievements out Turoks total 43 achievements. The online public/private achievements amount to 365G. == All-Purpose Warrior == Gamerscore : 30G How To Unlock : Win 10 public games of each of the following playlists: Small Team, Large Team and Co-Op. Well most of this shouldn't be too hard, it's just winning 10 co-op games that can be awkward as even if you're quite good sometimes you can get matched up with players that can just be ignorant to your warnings for bits you've done before or just sometimes player that aren't very good. But just keep playing co-op games and you'll get it eventually. See the section on the co-op achievements for tips on the individual co-op maps. The large and small team wins should just happen as you play online more. == Arch-Nemesis == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Kill the same player 5 times in a row without killing anybody else in between in a public match. This isn't too hard especially when in a small free for all game where there is just a couple of you playing. Just remember the name of the person you want to kill and just avoid the other players if you can. But as said try and do it on small free for all and just hope not many people join, sometimes you can just get a one on one match if you're lucky which makes it an almost guaranteed achievement unless the guy you're against is really good. == Arsenal == Gamerscore : 20G How To Unlock : Achieve at least 1 kill with every weapon in the game during public play. This is overall out of all your public matches not just in a single match. Just keep using different weapons until you get it. If you want a list of all the weapons then they are as follows: Bow, Flamethrower, Grenade, Knife, Mini-Gun, Pistol, Pulse Rifle, RPG, Shotgun, Sniper Rifle and the Sticky Gun. Yes you need to have a grenade kill as well if I recall correctly. Grenade kills are easy enough if you just sneak up on someone, see a group fighting or see someone getting mauled by a dinosaur or a scorpion. The rest of the weapons you'll just end up using anyways and end up getting kills with. Make a note of which weapons you've already killed with if it makes it easier. == Boomstick == Gamerscore : 10G How To Unlock : Destroy a Dilophosaurus with the Sticky Gun during a public match. Unless you have the Velociraptor Map Pack this can only be done on co-op map 2 (shadowed paths). After the part where there is rocket launcher turret and you have to open the gate by activating the terminal there are 2 Dilophosaurus' after you've dealt with the raptors. There is a Sticky Gun on the floor to the left near some bones. Pick it up and simply kill one of the Dilophosaurus with it. Just as a note, make sure it's in a public match and not a private one or you wont get the achievement. If you have the map pack then the map Sentinel has a Dilophosaurus wandering around in it for you to do away with/to screw you over when your trying to kill someone. Anyhoo in the bit with the huge rocket launcher thing on the top of it there is a ladder coming off of the side of it which leads to a sticky gun. Simply find the Dilophosaurus and blow it up with gun for the achievement. == Buddy Blowout == Gamerscore : 20G How To Unlock : Play a full 8 vs 8 private team game. This is one of those really pain in the ass achievements that will just become harder to get as time goes on the online community gets smaller. There are some tips for getting it though if your after it. If someone invites you to an online game then accept because they might be trying to get it. While in the lobby waiting for players to join invite everyone on your recent players list and get everyone else to do the same. It might take a long time before you get sixteen players so you have to have patience. Also if anyone quits then you don't get the achievement so try and clear that with everyone before the game starts and good luck. == Co-Op 1 == Gamerscore : 30G How To Unlock : Finish Co-Op Map 1 (The Lost Valley). This can be in either a private or a player match but I recommend player matches so you can rack up wins for the All-Purpose Warrior achievement. Also co-op maps are a lot easier with a full party of 4 generally. 2 can be quite hard at some points. Anyways here's a small guide for co-op map 1. At the start of the level after you've killed the initial few enemies on the hill there is an enemy up on a ledge with an RPG. Watch out he can be lethal. The bow is a good way of taking him out as you can just pop round into view and send a well pulled arrow into him. After this bit grab the Mini-Gun an enemy has as it can be handy soon. At this next bit after the raptor watch out for snipers ahead as well as Mini-Gun Turret to the right which will be manned sooner or later. After you've hacked the terminals to open the gate deploy the mini-gun as a turret and hold back. Enemies will keep coming at you but just keep back and shoot them from cover. Watch out for snipers that are lurking on the catwalk. If it's completely safe you may also want to go out and pick-up the mini-gun to reload it and then place it again. The enemies may seem to keep coming but they have a limit so just keep taking them out from cover until there are none left and then go and hack the terminals. Watch out because after you've hacked them enemies will come from all angles including the path you came through to get to the base. Watch out as some enemies have RPGs. If you see an rocket heading your way roll to the side to dodge it. After you've taken care of the enemies just keep going through the level until you get to the end. Prepare for Dilophosaurus' and enemies with RPGs and just try and hold out until the counter reaches zero and if you do you've beat the level. == Co-Op 2 == Gamerscore : 30G How To Unlock : Finish Co-Op Map 2 (Shadowed Paths). This can be in either a private or a player match but I recommend player matches so you can rack up wins for the All-Purpose Warrior achievement. Also co-op maps are a lot easier with a full party of 4 generally. 2 can be quite hard at some points. Anyways here's a small guide for co-op map 2. At the start of the level someone will have to get the bomb for later. Then just proceed on killing enemies (watch out for the sniper) until they're all done then whoever has the bomb will have to plant it. Go through the gate and take care of the enemies that come out the APC (a grenade works wonders). When you've done the enemies over take cover as there is a manned RPG turret ahead as well as a sniper on the raised platform to the right. Take out the sniper first. Then go for the guy on the RPG turret but be careful. If you see a rocket heading you way roll to the side to avoid it. You can either take out the person manning the RPG turret from a distance or go up to the left of the building he is on top of (it's not hard to make it there while avoiding the rockets) and there is a spot where you can shoot him but he can't get you and you can take him out easy from there. Watch out for the grenades the enemies seem to like to throw down at you though. After all the enemies are done hack the terminal then get on the RPG turret and fire at soldiers that come through the gate. Then proceed through the gate and take care of the raptors and then the Dilophosaurus' will make their entrance. If you are playing in a player match and don't have the boomstick achievement yet this is the only place to get it. See the section on the achievement for more information. Anyhoo you're coming up to the last bit of the map. grab the sniper and snipe out there sniper who is hanging out on top of the building to the right. Also there will be a guy manning the RPG turret to the left. Take him out too. Then go in and finish the rest of the soldiers. Once that is done you're going to have to survive and protect a helicopter for a few minutes. Stay as safe as you can but don't let the enemies destroy the helicopter. Watch out for snipers and people with RPGs. It may help to note that the next batch of enemies won't come if there is still at least one enemy still roaming around. == Co-Op 3 == Gamerscore : 30G How To Unlock : Finish Co-Op Map 2 (Breaking The Sword). This can be in either a private or a player match but I recommend player matches so you can rack up wins for the All-Purpose Warrior achievement. Also co-op maps are a lot easier with a full party of 4 generally. 2 can be quite hard at some points. Anyways here's a small guide for co-op map 3. Right from the get go there is a sniper behind the doors . But anyhoo take out everybody on the upper platform and once you've done that some enemies will come out from a door on the lower level. After you've beaten all of them a door will open. Get your knife out and go through the doors knife killing the unaware soldier inside and then hack the terminal. Enemies will come though boths doors now but a quick grenade easily takes care of them. After they are done go through the door on the right and you will eventually end up the upper platform that enemies were attacking you from before. You have to hack the two terminals to open the door to the next area but watch out as enemies will rush you from the left and the right. Once your through the door hack the terminal too gas the dinosaur. Then a door will open with a group of enemies waiting. A grenade will easily kill them all. In the next area lots of enemies will hide behind some cover. If you have any left throw grenades and if you have a pulse rifle fire disruption grenades (secondary fire) to take out a few from the get go. After that watch the doors as more enemies will come through, There are loads of weapons lying around if you want some too. Hack the terminal and through to the next room which has some giant scorpions in so watch out. On the upper area there is a Sticky Gun which I personally like to pick up (it's my favourite weapon). Just be careful about using its secondary fire as team mates have a tendency to accidentally walk over it and die. Anyhoo continue on to the next room hacking the terminals and taking care of the enemies. In the next area you have to descend to the area below. Since there are a lot of enemies down there I recommend sitting atop the pipes and taking some out from there before descending below to hack the terminals. Once you've hacked the terminals climb up the ladders and take the elevators up until you get to the highest level where there should be a terminal. Watch out for enemies particularly the sniper on the highest level. Once you have hacked the terminal destroy the four power cores (the blueish things) and the place will start flooding with radiation. Escape through the door with the green lights on and keep going. You will eventually reach a room with some more giant scorpions in. Hold on you're almost there. The door should open to the next area. Watch out at this bit because the sniper outside can get you even when your inside so stay in cover. When you get outside watch out for enemies with RPGs and the sniper. Raptors can also screw you over at this bit since you're a sitting duck for the RPG when they are mauling you. Don't rush for the helicopter as simply getting to it wont win you the game. Kill all the enemies and your mission is done. Keep your mind sharp as the sniper and RPG guys are lethal. There are a couple of Sniper Rifles on the sniping platform for you if you want to get them but keep a lookout as the RPG guy will be on to you. Good luck. == Crack Shot == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Kill 5 enemies in a public game with headshots. Not too hard actually if you're really trying for it. Sniper when you can and the pistol also work well. The flamethrower is also surprisingly good for getting headshots. Just aim upwards with a bit and you'll probably get one. Also if someone's unaware of your presence it's a perfect opportunity to take aim stick a cap in their head. You can tell if you got a headshot by looking to see if there is a little red marker on your weapon icon where it tells you who's killed who. == Dino Hunter == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Kill 20 dinosaurs in one public match. A good map to do this on is Fire Storm since a ton of raptors spawn in that bit that links the trenches. This is easiest done on small team or free for all games since there are less people to screw you over and even some people to take out the enemies on team games. Just keep knifing them as they spawn and you'll have after the twentieth one has fallen. == Exterminator == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Kill 20 scorpions in one public match. Spire is easily the best map to do this on as the only other map I can think of that has the bugs on it is A Heated Rivalry and that's only if you release them and they don't come many at a time. Anyways on the spire there is always plenty of bugs under the bridge. The Mini-Gun mows them down easily. Keep going until 20 have fallen. Just as with the Dino Hunter achievement a small team or small free for game works best for this as it limits interruptions. == Gamesman == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Play full private or public match each of the following playlists: Small Free For All, Large Free For All Small Team, Large Team and Co-Op. Not much to say here really. Just play a full match of each of the playlists. This means no quitting half way through remember. And it can be private, public or ranked. Easy stuff, you'll get it very quickly. == Grab Bag == Gamerscore : 10G How To Unlock : Kill at least 1 creature, 1 enemy, 1 ally, and yourself in a public match. This is an easy one, can only be done in a team game as you've probably already worked out. Kill one creature (dinosaur or bug) and 1 enemy. After that your gonna have to kill an ally. Hey no hard feelings if it's an "accident" (man sarcasm is awkward in text but note my attempt with the quote marks) right? Waiting until there knifing someone and then chuck a grenade their way for the kill (Sticky Gun or RPG also works). After you've done that just throw a grenade to the floor directly in front of you to commit suicide and say hello to the achievement. == Great Round == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Finish a Public Deathmatch with a battle rating greater than 100. This can be either a team deathmatch or free for all, it doesn't matter which one. But essentially the idea is that if you do well in the match you'll probably come out with battle rating over one hundred. I can't teach you how to be good on multiplayer but you get better by playing more and the achievement isn't as hard as it sounds just have patience and you will eventually get it. == Hometown Hero == Gamerscore : 25G How To Unlock : Return the flag to your base 5 times in one public match. This isn't as hard as it sounds. It doesn't mean returning the enemy flag to your base five times as that just isn't happening in a single public match. It means returning your own flag to your base five times after the enemy has dropped it. Just wait near your flag but not too near or they will likely try to kill you before they pick up the flag. Just wait until they have the flag and are running with it and shoot them down and then run over the flag to return it to your base. Since the enemy runs slower when they are holding the flag they are easy knife targets if your prefer that. If your doing this in a ranked match you'll probably get the Thorn In Side achievement at the same time. See the separate section for that achievement for more details. == Massive Battle == Gamerscore : 10G How To Unlock : Play a full 6 vs 6 public match. Yes that means if anyone quits part way through the match you don't get it. This should be a very easy achievement but quitting seems to be common practise in Turok multiplayer. Anyways just keep playing full large team games until you get it. If you're having trouble you could try asking the other people in the game not to quit because you're trying to get the achievement. I've been a few game where people have done that and it had worked. == Pacifist == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Play a full public match with no shots fired or kills awarded, capturing the flag at least twice. Fingers off triggers for this one guys. No knifing the air either as it still counts as a shot. As said keep your fingers off the triggers completely and just keep going for that flag. I recommend a small team game as there will be less interference that way. Even if you are getting shot at don't do anything just keep going for that flag and try to dodge the best you can. Good Luck. Thanks to Thomas Hurst for confirming that this achievement can be done on assault capture the flag. == Primitive Weapons == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Play a public match using only the bow or knife and earn at least 10 kills. Choose either the Bow or Knife as a mix won't work. Winning a free for all with just the Knife will get it you most of the time. Just be patient (yes that damn patience again) and keep going eventually you'll get it. I prefer the knife most of the time. Sneak up on the enemy wherever possible and get that Knife in there. == Resurrection == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Finish a player free for all match with at least 10 kills and 10 deaths. Essentially this means losing the match but oh well it's just how the achievement goes. This has to be in a player match too. A ranked match wont work. Just keep playing normally trying to kill as many opponents as possible and when you reach 10 just commit suicide (jump off a ledge or grenade yourself) until all your lives are gone. Just hope someone doesn't win the game before you've killed yourself enough times (damn suicide penalties). == Retribution == Gamerscore : 15G How To Unlock : Kill your rival in a public match. This is probably going to be one of the first online achievements you will get It's easy stuff. Your rival is the person who last killed you. Your rival will be glowing orange so he/she'll be easy to spot. As soon as you spot him (hopefully from a distance before he sees you which is easier considering he/she is now orange) take him out and you'll get the achievement. =============================================== == Online Achievements (Ranked Only) [2AONR] == =============================================== This sub-section will cover all the online achievements that can only be earned in ranked matches. Because you can't party up on ranked matches you can't boost any of these achievements with a friend but you can sometimes get in the same ranked match as a friend if you want to try it by searching for the same type of game at the same time and it isn't that uncommon to be put in the same game as them. So if you want to try and go down that route for these achievements you can always have a go at doing that. There are 9 online ranked only achievements out Turoks total 43 achievements. The online ranked only achievements amount to 260G. == Accuracy Award == Gamerscore : 20G How To Unlock : Achieve an accuracy of 75% or greater in a single ranked match with at least 20 shots fired. Isn't as difficult as you may think as long as your going for it. Don't shoot unless you know you're gonna hit. Sneak up behind people when possible and you're guaranteed some accurate shots. The pistols secondary fire will get you three shots in at once which is 15% of the way there and you'll probably be able to get more than just that in. And if an enemy is right in front of you so you know you'll hit go for it with a rapid fire weapon. If you fire at least 20 shots and seventy five percent of your bullets hit you'll get it at the end of the match. == Medal Of Citation == Gamerscore : 25G How To Unlock : Earn 100 player kills over all your ranked matches. Not difficult. Just keep playing ranked matches and it'll come. You'll get the achievement as soon as you've killed your one hundredth player. If you go on the in game achievement list from stats section of the main menu it keeps track of how many you have killed so far for you. Kills generally rack up pretty quickly in free for all games. Capture the flag and wargames also seem to get you a lot of kills too as some of them can go on for a while. == Medal Of Commendation == Gamerscore : 50G How To Unlock : Earn 500 player kills over all your ranked matches. Just like Medal Of Citation except it takes five times as long. But also as with Medal Of Citation just keep playing ranked matches and it'll eventually come. Again the achievements list under the stats section of the main menu will keep track of your current number of ranked kills for you. Free for all, capture the flag and wargames are recommended game modes here. == Multiplayer First-Class == Gamerscore : 35G How To Unlock : Finish a single ranked match with 100% accuracy and at least 5 kills. Finger off triggers unless you know you're gonna hit. Even knifing the air will screw you over. Speaking of knives, the knife is a good way to go for getting this achievement just hit the trigger ONLY when the prompt appears on the screen to knife kill the enemy. Once you have five kills just keep fingers off those triggers and hide until the match is over to get the achievement. == Multiplayer Master-Class == Gamerscore : 40G How To Unlock : Finish a single ranked match with all headshots and at least 5 kills. This may indeed by the hardest achievement in the game. Fingers off the right trigger this time unless you know you've got a headshot, no hitting the rest of their body. try sneaking up on unaware opponents as this will give you ample aiming time to go for their head. The pistol works well in one of those situations. Also as you'd probably think the sniper is a good accurate tool for this obviously, sometimes you can catch out other people sniping as they aren't always paying attention to you. You can tell if you got a headshot by looking to see if there is a little red marker on your weapon icon where it tells you who's killed who. == Practically Canadian == Gamerscore : 20G How To Unlock : Headshot an enemy carrying your flag in a ranked match. I see perhaps some south park influence in the in game achievement description. I love Canada though, one of the greatest experiences in my life was visiting Canada. But anyways just hide near your flag but so near that the enemy will see you when approaching your flag otherwise they'll probably try and shoot you before picking up the flag. As soon as they have picked up your flag jump in front of them and try your best to go for the head if you did it you should get the achievement when the match ends. == Thorn In Side == Gamerscore : 20G How To Unlock : Kill the flag carrier 5 times in a single ranked match. If you haven't already gotten the Hometown Hero achievement you'll probably get that at the same time as this one (see the section for the specific achievement for more information on it). Just hide near your flag but not so near that the enemy approaching your flag will see you as they will probably try and take you out before going for the flag. Once they have the flag get yourself out of hiding and let the chase begin. Run up behind them and take them down. Since they run slower when they have the flag it'll make for an easy knife kill. Do it five times and the achievement is yours. == Triple Kill == Gamerscore : 20G How To Unlock : Kill 3 enemies within 4 seconds of each other in a single ranked match. This can be tough and may take some time. Rocket Launchers are the way forward for getting this achievement generally. The Hard Place and Power Struggle are maps I see people getting triple kills on mostly if I recall correctly. Large free for all games seem to be best for this achievement as you have more opponents due to having no team mates. It's not that unusual to find 3 people close together going for it with the knife and the likes. If you see this and have a Rocket Launcher then fire at them and watch as your achievement unlocks. If you don't have a rocket launcher then try with a grenade, there's nothing to lose. Patience and you'll get it eventually. == Unbreakable == Gamerscore : 30G How To Unlock : Play through a full ranked match without dying. This isn't as annoying as you may think. Capture the flag games (Assault CTF not so much) are great for this especially in small team games as you'll have less enemies to worry about. Sometimes you'll also get lucky and have very few people playing in one match which makes it all the more easier. Just get in a good hiding spot and just let them win the match and you're sorted for getting the achievement. There is also a good hiding spot on the map The Hard Place. If you go to a cliff where there is a Pterodactyl (flying dinosaur) flying around and hug the wall to right and slowly drop off the cliff you will land on a small bit of ground. You can't really be seen there unless someone directly looks over the bit you walked off then looks down. It's not always that great a hiding place though if someone sees you going over it and its whereabouts isn't completely unknown by most of the playing community. If someone sees you going over the cliff a quick rocket or shot from the Sticky Gun and you're a gonner. I recommend the capture the flag method. ############################################################ ## Contact Details [3CD] ## ############################################################ If you have problems/questions/suggestions for the guide then please feel free to contact me.

This will also be the thanks section too. My name is Stuart Craig and as of writing this guide I am 18 years old (19 in may yay). I am scottish and I'm big on music and play guitar mainly but I can also play some bass and mandolin. I also have a drum kit, jaw harp and harmonica but I can't play them very well. I'm into alot of music, thrash and folk metal, jazz, delta blues, bluegrass, old rock 'n' roll, classical, old hip-hop and more. I'm less keen on rock, pop, hardcore and dance. I am at college doing music and it's great. I also like to compose music and play with other open minded musicians. A few of my favourite video games are Final Fantasy VII (yeah I'm one of the people who just love it), The Pokemon Series, The Advance Wars Series, Bioshock, Pacman, The Golden Sun series (which has sadly come to an end), Halo 3 and an honourable mention to Viva Pinata because you all know it's good. And on to the thanks. First and foremost thank you the reader for reading this guide. Without you this guide wouldn't have a reason to exist. Also thanks to the makers of Turok. This was my first Turok game and it has left a good impression on me (knife kills are awesome). Also thanks to my girlfriend just because I can and I want to thanks her. Oh and thanks to GameFAQs for hosting this guide. I'll add more when I can think of them but I'm tired at the moment but bear with me because eventually all that need thanking shall be thanked. I sincerly hope you enjoyed reading this guide and thanks again. I'm off for moment but hope to hear from you if you have something to say. Good luck on getting the achievements (or congratulations if you already have them). ~Sceptile_Master
