Max Payne 3 achievement/trophy guide

Something Wicked This Way Comes


Get 7 Kills While Jumping From The Rickety Boat [FREE AIM]

Fire up the story mode, chapter 5, checkpoint 6, and switch to easy mode. You also have to select Free Aim mode from the menu for this to count. When you are unnoticed in cover, quickly pop out and shoot the yellow propane tank on the stairs to ignite it before the cutscene triggers. The tank will explode during the cutscene, killing three of the men for you. The rest is easy!

Sometimes You Get Lucky


Get A Headshot During The Rooftop Tremors

Go to the story mode, chapter 12, checkpoint 11. Kill all the enemies who have the high ground, then walk forward and the ground will cave in a bit. Take cover behind the big AC unit and wait for a tremor. As soon as it does, turn on bullet time and rush the closest enemy. The point is to get as close as possible, increasing the likelihood of a headshot. (The achievement did not unlock for us in this video because we already had it.)

Sure Know How To Pick A Place


Discover All Tourist Locations

There are two “tourists.” One is the ex-cop and the other is the pervert. Finding them in each of their locations counts as finding clues, so just follow our complete clues guide HERE. They can be found in chapters 2, 7, 13, and 14, so refer to those sections in our guide.

Sweep (secret)


Flawless Team Gang Wars Victory

Every Gang Wars match has five rounds. If your team wins all five of these rounds, this achievement will unlock.

That Old Familiar Feeling


Clear The Hallway Of Laser

Fire up story mode, chapter 4, checkpoint 8. To clear the hallway of laser you have to kill all the enemies who carry weapons with laser sights. Take cover underneath a window and kill all of the men on the roof. Don’t forget about the two enemies that come from down the hall too.

The Gambler


Won A Wager

You have a chance to place a wager at the start of each round of Gang Wars by pressing X/square. Sometimes you can coordinate a successful wager if you are in communication with your teammates. Otherwise, it’s mostly a crapshoot.

The Fear Of Losing It


Survive A Level Without Painkillers

Load the first chapter in story mode. Switch the difficulty to easy and turn on Hard Lock (if you prefer to). Just be cautious. You are allowed to die and/or reload checkpoints, but do not use last stand mode if given the opportunity. Remember that doing so automatically consumes any painkillers you have on hand.
