Syndicate achievement and trophy guide

Cover Lover


Make it past the conveyor best without taking any damage from the turret

As soon as you begin the level you’ll be in a giant room with a turret at the center. If you look carefully, there are control panels on the sides of the conveyor belts. Breach them to turn them on, then use the moving crates for cover. You’ll need to do this twice as you take a zigzag path through the room. When you reach the power switch for the jammer, the turret can still target you through the hole in the window. Wait until it turns away, then breach it to take control. The achievement will unlock when you reach the next set of doors.

Employee of the Month


Complete a mission after earning a team savior score

(CO-OP) A team savior score is earned by one who completes the mission after having been the last man standing. You don’t have to remain last man standing for the duration of the mission - only for a moment. So, if you are only playing with one other person, simply reboot them once at some point and finish the mission for an easy 10g.

Every Bullet Counts


Defeat Tatsuo without restocking your ammunition from the UAVs, on normal or hard difficulty

Tatsuo is the boss in chapter 4. Since you can’t breach the UAV drones for extra ammo, make sure to be well stocked beforehand. If you have a Gauss Rifle, this is a piece of cake. If not, make liberal use of your Overlay to increase damage and fire in short bursts. Your biggest challenge will be avoiding an accidental UAV drone breach.

If you do run short on ammo, there should be plenty of weapons left over from the firefight beforehand. About halfway through the boss battle, a wave of normal baddies will show up to offer even more ammo.

Field Surgeon


Heal 3 team members for at least 50% of their health within 1 minute

You can manufacture the right circumstance if you have three willing teammates, but if not, go into a co-op match with a healing-only mindset. Without you aiding in the shooting, your teammates will likely take more damage, which, if you are constantly healing, means this achievement can be knocked out in no time.

Gaggle of Guidance


Use the Swarm’s multi-target lock-on firing mode to kill 3 UAV drones with one volley

During Milestone 10, you’ll come across the Swarm missile launcher on a red rack against the wall. Very soon after, you’ll find yourself outside battling a swarm of UAV drones. Make sure to breach them as they are launched, but don’t shoot them down until you’ve breached at least three and they’ve grouped relatively close together. From there, all you need to do is lock on with the launcher and reap the easy 5g.

Golden Handshake


Achieve CEO ranking on any level

CEO rank is not hard to achieve on easy levels such as the first. Maintain decent accuracy, go for headshots, try to avoid damage, and move quickly. These are some of the factors that determine the ranking you get at the end of each level.

Greed is Good


Achieve CEO ranking on all chapters which track difficulty, on hard difficulty

You can see the factors that determine your ranking at the end of each chapter. Even on hard, getting CEO rank isn't particularly difficult once you’re familiar with the game’s mechanics. Make sure to invest in the Killing Spree (double rampage timer), Adrenaline Rush (40% increase in energy gain), Synchronize (25% longer overlay duration), and Augmented Overlay (25% more damage in overlay mode) chip upgrades. An increased rampage meter means easier combos, more energy means more opportunities for breach spikes, and a better DART Overlay means more killing in less time.

Make sure to use DART Overlay often, particularly to line up headshots. Also, if you’re playing on hard, chances are you've had some experience with breach spikes (perfect breaches), so focus on using your abilities as often as you can. Finally, don’t forget to move quickly; time completion time is a factor in your final score.



Use breach abilities 300 times

This will come naturally with enough play, though it probably won’t unlock on your first playthrough (unless you die often). Check your progress by viewing player statistics from the ‘extras’ sub menu.



Collect 500,000 energy

Breach spikes, headshots, and rampage kills are common ways to get extra energy. If you want to unlock this achievement quicker, invest in the Killing Spree (double rampage timer) and Adrenaline Rush (40% increase in energy gain) chip upgrades as soon as possible. Check your progress by viewing player statistics from the ‘extras’ sub menu.
