I've never written a FAQ before, so this is my first one. And how fitting that it's over one of my favorite games on the XBox 360. I've beaten the game twice so far. Once on Normal, for my first playthrough, and again on Easy, to get the Test of Faith achievement, and one day I will beat it on Hard. I've gotten a large majority of the achievements in the game (except for those accursed speedrun achievements) and am pretty confident that I can make a guide for it. You can contact me using the information located at the end of the guide. THE GAME [INTRGA] Mirror's Edge was released in November 2008 (a PC version was later released in January of 2009) and was met with generally positive reviews, with a Metacritic score of 79 out of 100. The story involves a utopia city, where all communication is monitored and censored. Enter the Runners, a group of people who are hired to transport sensitive information to their clients. You play the role of Faith, an orphaned Runner whose life is turned upside down when her sister is framed for murder. But in her attempt to save her, she comes across a scheme that is much more sinister, and could bring an end to the Runners once and for all... MIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGE VERSION HISTORY MIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGE [MRDGVE] Version 0.9 - January 24, 2009 = GameFAQs approved my first guide! WOOT!

MIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGE ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE MIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGEMIRRORSEDGE [MRDGAC] STORY ACHIEVEMENTS [ACHIST] Back on the job (10G) - Complete the Tutorial Can be done on any difficulty. Prologue Complete (20G) - Complete the Prologue in story mode Can be done on any difficulty Chapter 1 Complete - Chapter 8 Complete (20G each) - Complete Chapter x in story mode These can be done on any difficulty. That's a wrap (60G) - Complete the story mode on any difficulty Pro runner (80G) - Complete story mode on hard difficulty Can get pretty difficult at times. My advice to you is to play through the game once on Normal or Easy to get an idea of each level before you play through on Hard. Pacifist (15G) - Complete a chapter without firing a gun Should be pretty easy. I did it on the prologue, since there's only two enemies you have to fight, and they are pretty spread out Untouchable (15G) - Complete a chapter without getting shot Also pretty easy. I did it on the prologue. When you encounter the two Blues, you should be able to take the first one down easily. After killing or disarming him, run straight forward to the blue walkway, so that you are out of sight of the second Blue. From there, climb onto the vent, and then onto the building, so you avoid the Blue entirely. Head over heels (20G) - Complete a chapter of the game without ending up in a heavy landing You avoid heavy landings by pressing the Crouch (LT) button right before you hit the ground. This should be most easily done on the Prologue level. Just be careful when you are falling out of vents. Test of Faith (80G) - Complete the game without shooting an enemy Easily done on Easy. If you do it on any other difficulty, you'll have some trouble getting through certain parts of the game. You have much more health on Easy mode than you do on Normal. SPEEDRUN/TIME TRIAL ACHIEVEMENTS [ACHISP] Note on speedruns: These are unlocked after beating the game. I will give a Youtube link for each speedrun. Please inform me via email if the link is inactive. Prologue Speedrun (10G) - Complete a Speedrun of the Prologue below the target time Target time: 3 minutes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtohAZ_rHMM Chapter 1 Speedrun - Chapter 9 Speedrun (10G each) - Complete a Speedrun of Chapter x below the target time Chapter #: Target Time - Youtube Link Chapter 1: 6 minutes - http://tinyurl.com/73nlyy Chapter 2: 11 minutes - http://tinyurl.com/8fm5eo Chapter 3: 8 minutes - http://tinyurl.com/9xnj6v Chapter 4: 9 minutes - http://tinyurl.com/a2k6sm Chapter 5: 9 minutes - http://tinyurl.com/a6jgra Chapter 6: 7 minutes - http://tinyurl.com/8ykvo4 Chapter 7: 8 minutes - http://tinyurl.com/9zjheb Chapter 8: 8 minutes - http://tinyurl.com/9lh5w4 Chapter 9: 6 minutes - http://tinyurl.com/7psx3p Videos by watuhboy On the clock (10G) - Beat the qualifier time on any Time Trial stretch All you have to do is get at least one star on any Time Trial Access all areas (20G) - Unlock all Time Trial stretches You unlock Time Trials by completing the story mode and by getting at least one star on each course. Baby Steps (20G) - Attain a Time Trial star rating of 20 This means that all your Time Trials must add up to be at least 20. There are a total of 23 time trials, so all you have to do is get at least one star on 20 of them. A for effort (25G) - Attain a Time Trial rating of 35 With 23 total courses, you only need to get 2 stars on 18 of them. Still Counting (30G) - Attain a Time Trial rating of 50 23 total courses, so 2 stars on all of them and three stars on four of them will do the trick. TO BE DONE: Add Time Trial videos BAG ACHIEVEMENTS [ACHIBA] Bag Lady (20G) - Find all three hidden bags in one chapter Bag videos to be posted eventually. For now, use this guide by Blood_XIII: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox360/file/941951/54830 Ran out of fingers (30G) - Find 11 hidden bags http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox360/file/941951/54830 Packrat (80G) - Find all 30 hidden bags http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox360/file/941951/54830 OTHER ACHIEVEMENTS [ACHIOT] Tango Down (15G) - Knock out 20 enemies in melee combat Easily done at Checkpoint E on Chapter 2 - Jacknife. Put it on easy, and keep reloading the checkpoint after you wipe out the Blues. Mine! (15G) - Perform 15 successful disarms (outside of the tutorial) Easily done at Checkpoint E on Chapter 2 - Jacknife. Put it on easy, and keep reloading the checkpoint after you wipe out the Blues. Vrooom! (40G) - Maintain sprint speed for 30 seconds Can be done at several places. First, at the Prologue, drop down from the first platform you start out on and just run around the edge of the ledge. You can also do it at Chapter 2, when you're going through the canal thing. Stick to the left ledge and just keep running. The achievement won't pop until after you stop running. Martial Artist (10G) - Perform a melee hit from a wallrun At the end of the prologue, right after you give the bag to Cel, there will be a group of Blues running towards you. Run towards them, do a wallrun, and nail one of em to pop this achievement. Up, Over, Under, Onwards (25G) - String together the following: jump, coil (over obstacle), slide (under obstacle) Can be done on the Prologue. At that first part, where there are blue panels sticking out of the ground, jump off of one of those, over the fence, (make sure you press LT in the air to coil) and slide under the bars to get this achievement. Free Flowing (25G) - String together the following: wallrun, jump, speedvault Done during the tutorial. After crossing the balance beam, you will see Cel wallrun up to the next ledge. Instead of doing that, however, you want to wallrun off the wall to the right of the ledge, press the Turn button (RB), and jump. Keep trying if you don't get it at first. May I have this dance? (30G) - String together the following: wallrun, turn, jump, wallclimb, turn, jump Sounds a lot harder than it is. On the prologue, after you climb the fence, veer to the left to the platform where the zipline is, but don't go on it. Instead, go in between the platforms. Wallrun off of one (LB), turn (RB), and jump (LB). Faith will automatically start wallclimbing, and while she does, quickly press Turn (RB), and jump (LB). aaaand safe! (30G) - String together the following: wallrun, jump, coil (over obstacle), skill roll Done on the Playground One Time Trial course. After wallrunning across the first wall, instead of going straight into the building, turn left and jump off the plank onto the next building. From here, you will see a wall and a barbed wire fence. Run on the wall (LB), jump (RB), coil over the fence (LT), and perform a skill roll (press LT right before you hit the ground) to pop the achievement. It took me a couple tries. SECRET ACHIEVEMENTS [ACHISE] Hey, it's-a-me! (10G) - Execute a stomp move on an enemy A "stomp move" is when you jump on top of an enemy and pull the right trigger as soon as you make contact. I did this during the Prologue. Before you give the bag to Cel, and you are facing two Blues, jump up on the vents that are beside the Blue that is nearest to you, and pounce em! Sweet goodbye (5G) - Triggered the flip-off move Do this by running, then pressing the Jump, Turn, and Punch buttons, quickly, and in that order. (XBox controls: LB, RB, RT) This must be done to an enemy.

Q: I'm on Chapter 8, and the game's making me pick up the rifle. Will this prevent me from getting the Test of Faith achievement? A: Don't worry, you only lose the achievement if you shoot somebody. You can also shoot the terminals on the last level.
