Max Payne 3 achievement/trophy guide

Maximum Payne

80g/Gold

Story Complete [OLD SCHOOL]

Old school mode is unlocked after beating the story mode on hard difficulty. You take even more damage than you would in hardcore mode and the last man standing option is no longer available to you.


Man Of Many Faces

25g/Bronze

Unlock All Faction Characters

All factions are unlocked once you reach rank 7 in multiplayer.


Man Of Many Weapons

25g/Bronze

Unlock All Weapons

This achievement/trophy is significantly more time-consuming than the “Man of Many Faces,” even though it’s worth the same amount of gamerscore/trophy color. You’ll have to reach rank 40 in multiplayer to unlock all weapons.


Max Payne Invitational

5g/Bronze

Invite someone to play through the in-game contact list

Set up a private match and press RB to go to your friends list. Move the cursor over to someone who’s currently online, select them and then invite them. Even if they don’t join you (or even own Max Payne 3) the achievement will immediately unlock.


One Bullet At A Time

20g/Bronze

(Single Player) 300 Headshots

This should unlock naturally on your first playthrough, assuming you’re not playing with Hard Lock activated and are actually attempting the occasional headshot. Use bullet time and shootdodge to aid in aiming if you’re having trouble.


Out The Window

10g/Bronze

Get 6 Kills While Diving Through The VIP Window [FREE AIM]

Fire up story mode, chapter 2, checkpoint 2, and switch to easy mode. You also have to select Free Aim mode from the menu for this to count. Don’t worry about perfect accuracy or headshots here — the goal is simply to kill all six men as quickly as possible. You also have a bottomless magazine during this sequence, so fire away. See the video for their exact locations.


Part I Complete

20g/Bronze

Complete Part I Of The Story

Part I encompasses chapters 1 through 5. The achievement will unlock upon completion of chapter 5.


Part II Complete

20g/Bronze

Complete Part II Of The Story

Part II encompasses chapters 6 through 10. The achievement will unlock upon completion of chapter 10.


Part III Complete

20g/Bronze

Complete Part III Of The Story

Part III encompasses chapters 10 through 14 (the end). The achievement will unlock upon finishing the game.


Past The Point Of No Return

10g/Bronze

Take 100 Painkillers.

Again, this should unlock naturally during your first playthrough. When will depend on how good or bad you are at Max Payne 3!


Payne Bringer

30g/Silver

(Multiplayer) Kill 100 Other Players

This is pretty self-explanatory, just rake up those kills online.


Payne In The Ass

20g/Bronze

Story Complete [HARDCORE]

Hardcore mode is unlocked by beating the story mode on hard difficulty. In hardcore mode, there is no aim assist and you will take more damage. Remember to select new game from the story menu, then Hardcore mode.


Serious Payne

50g/Silver

Story Complete [HARD]

This unlocks when you beat the game on hard difficulty. Aim assist must be turned off (in other words, Free Aim only) for the entire game or this achievement will not unlock. You also must also start a new game as opposed to selecting individual chapters.


So Much For Being Subtle

10g/Bronze

Get 9 Kills While Being Pulled By A Chain [FREE AIM]

Load story mode, chapter 7, checkpoint 9, and switch to easy mode. You also have to select Free Aim mode from the menu for this to count. Make sure to kill the men on the second level before you lose the sightline. Because these enemies are a little closer to you than the other Free Aim challenges, try lowering your aim sensitivity if you’ve been playing with it turned up (like we were). If you’re having trouble unlocking this using a semi-auto pistol that you’re given if you go directly to this checkpoint, load an earlier checkpoint and find a fully automatic one-handed weapon for the task. Like the other Free Aim challenges, you’ll have a bottomless magazine during the sequence.

    This game looks cool. I just got a M4 like in the game http://www.airsplat.com/airsoft-video-games.htm and they have a bunch of other guns from different games.

    I got the "Colder Than the Devil's Heart" (30 enemies in 2mins) achievement in chapter 5, checkpoint 17 -- same place you got "It’s Fear That Gives Men Wings" (10 enemies in 1 bullet time) --- Only got 8 in one bullet time though. Try, try again.
