Folks Need Heroes

Gamerpoints: 50

Game, Set, Match

Gamerpoints: 25
Completed a Firefight set on Legendary without dying.

Using the GRCHEEVOS gametype, set the match to one round and set the difficulty to legendary. One set will be 3 rounds of 5 waves with an additional Bonus Round at the end.  It will take about 15 minutes to complete but once you do… 25 Points.


Gods Must Be Strong

Gamerpoints: 125
Completed the Campaign on Legendary difficulty.

This achievement is for the truly masochistic.  Take your time through the campaign on this setting and the 125 points will easily be yours.  Ok, not easily – but it will be yours nonetheless.


Heat The Pipe

Gamerpoints: 75
Scored 1,000,000 points in a Firefight game.

Using the GRCHEEVOS gametype file, simply keep on killing and killing and killing some more.  To get one million points, it took takes about 90 minutes to reach it.


I Didn’t Train to Be a Pilot

Gamerpoints: 10
Killed 3 of the anti-aircraft batteries during the 8th mission.

In the night time flying mission over New Alexandria, there will be multiple anti-aircraft turrets set up on the rooftops.  You can just fly around until you see the blue-ish white gunfire from them and then take them out.  It’s easy enough to find three and killing them is even easier.


If They Came to Hear Me Beg

Gamerpoints: 25
Performed an Assassination against an Elite to survive a fall that would've been fatal.

Right at the beginning of Mission 10: The Pillar or Autumn, you will come to a ledge with an Elite and some grunts shuffling around down below.  To get the achievement, you need to wait for the Elite to come closer to the ledge and then run and jump off using Sprint.  Aim for the Elite’s head and be sure to turn off the sprint on the way down.  If you don’t turn it off, the achievement won’t work.  When you are right above the Elite, hit the right bumper and pull off the assassination.

    The Objective to "If They Came To Hear Me Beg" is to hit the ground and immediatly assassinate the elite on Normal Or Harder on The POA

    does anyone know how to get a "Bulltrue medal"?

    Just so people know, the If You Came To Hear Me Beg achievement isn't so much difficult as it is tricky. Not all assassinations will unlock the achievement. You have to be the right distance behind the Elite and press your melee button at the exact right moment. The distance is critical because if you're too far back your melee triggers a lunge, and the lunge invalidates the fatality of the fall, not the assassination, so no achievement. Timing is critical because you're moving so fast. If you're getting assassinations but they aren't unlocking the achievement, try going just a tad farther out to get a little closer to him, and try pressing the melee button just a bit earlier. You can use either weapon, and it doesn't matter where he's standing. The reason some people find it easy and others nearly impossible is different people do it slightly differently, so it works for some and not others. It's not because of skill. You could jump off that cliff for an hour, assassinating the Elite every time and still not unlock the achievement if you aren't doing it exactly the way the game wants you to do it.

  • slay3r0fm3n555 - October 10, 2010 7:44 p.m.

  • AeonOptic - October 10, 2010 6:25 p.m.

    Banshees, fast and low is incredibly frustrating. I EMP the damn thing then it won't allow me to jack it.
  • louiscox - October 3, 2010 11:26 p.m.

    Fu**k TCTHMB, A Monument to all your Sins is becoming a right bas***d to get! its the only one im struggling to get out of the three i have left ¬_¬
  • rv - October 2, 2010 9:23 a.m.

    For all the people who are having trouble with the if you come to hear me beg achievement, make sure ur using the pistol otherwise it wont work
  • NightlordKrusnik - September 28, 2010 2:44 a.m.

    And one more thing, between levels 6 and 7 i fall from freaking HIGH ORBIT and manage to survive with about half health, and yet falling about 100 feet or so causes me to off myself in spectacularly horrible fashion when i miss the damn elite
  • NightlordKrusnik - September 28, 2010 2:12 a.m.

    "Turn off Sprint".... Now i know why it took me 127 tries before i got that damn 'If They Came To Hear Me Beg' f****r
  • ViolentLee - September 27, 2010 7:50 p.m.

    The trick to Your Heresy Will Stay Your Feet is to get to wear he's waiting at the bottom of the stairs and hit him with the n00b combo (charged plasma pistol to knock out his shield, then another weapon to take him out while he's defenseless). That way, he can't dodge your shots, and you're not close enough to get hit by his sword.
  • marty90 - September 27, 2010 5:14 p.m.

    @Korvak you my friend are a genius did it alone within 20 mins, easiest thing in the world. much appreciated
  • Korvak - September 27, 2010 3:36 p.m.

    For the 1 Mill Firefight achievement, it only took me and 2 friends 13 min to get. I have the file share saved to my gamertag (which is Korvak)if anyone is interested.
  • beezn - September 26, 2010 12:25 p.m.

    stupid cliff jumping pain in the ass.
  • TeslaVonMagnus - September 25, 2010 8:03 p.m.

    The "If They Came to Hear Me Beg" achievement was made to sound MUCH easier than it really is. I've been trying for and hour and a half and I've still not gotten it. I've landed on the Elite's head and survived, I've simply melee killed it and survived, I've melee killed it and died also, and I've missed more times than I can count. Basically everything but an assassination. :/
  • Thuperman - September 25, 2010 5:52 p.m.

    GR should do more achievement guides, now i only need two more for reach and it will be a pretty long timre for me to get to Lt. colonel
  • Axcleblade - September 25, 2010 5:23 p.m.

    SPAAAAAAAAAAAM EVERYWHERE! Anyway, I actually didn't have too much trouble with "If They Came to Hear me Beg." When I got to that point on my first playthrough, I saw that Elite and knew he was the target for that acheivement. I missed my first jump, but got him on my second.
  • Zeb364 - September 25, 2010 8:57 a.m.

    I agree that the "If They Came To Hear Me Beg" achievement can be a massive bitch. I tried for awhile and just said screw it, I'll get it later.
  • dontshootthereviewer - September 25, 2010 5:14 a.m.

    For getting your rank up for the achievements you can mess around on forge and get a decent amount of points.
  • batman5273 - September 25, 2010 3:45 a.m.

    I also have a couple corrections For "keep it clean" you do have to kill the 7 ostriches, but if you die, the counter resets. for "score attack" you do not have to do it in score attack by yourself. I personally helped Brett Elston get this one in Firefight matchmaking. You want to get a team of 4 and select "rocket fight" on "Corvette." The score is accumulative and you do not run out of lives, but you do get a penalty for dying. We easily got 18k with our team.
