Level Cheat

There are achievement points for completing all levels on different difficulties, but they are not stackable. So if you were to play this game legit, you would have to play the game three times to get achievement points for easy, medium and hard.

However there is a cheat to bypass a whole chunk of levels and pick up all the level achievements without the need to play the entire game again.

You will need to first complete the entire game on Yellow (easy). All the levels are divided into chapters. Once you complete the game, return to the main menu and change the difficulty (medium or hard). Select and play the FIRST chapter, then JUST the last chapter of EACH level. (You will need to play the first chapter, and this has been verified on xbox.com forums) Once you complete the very last chapter, the achievement should unlock.



This is basically a very simple first person shooter and you can collect a whole lot of points by doing just that. Shooting. Thats right, kill a lot of aliens and an achievement pops. However, some these are a little time consuming, but they are also very easy to rack up. For all weapon achievements it is best to complete the game first, then re-select certain chapters.

There are some online achievements that are also very easy to collect by boosting with a friend. The online lobby lets you choose your host. I personally feel this is the only way to pick up the online achievements, as there are very few people playing this game online anyway. Some games require four people to start and so you may need to rent three copies! Others can be done with just two.

The Downward Spore                                                                 10 G

Bring down a Spore Tower.

The first Spore Tower you encounter is in Episode 3, Rachel, near the beginning, after you clear the gas station area. Just shoot the glowing segments on it and NOTHING else! This achievement is glitchy and will not unlock if you shoot anything else during the battle.

I said Drop and Roll!                                                                   10 G

Bring down a Fire Brute.

The first Fire Brute is in Episode 5. Again shoot the glowing segments on it’s back and NOTHING else. Yes , this achievement is a little glitchy as well. Shoot Anti-tank missiles at it’s back and the beast is down. Don’t worry if you shoot those crawling bugs. They don’t affect the glitch.

Beware! Octopus Dog!                                                               10 G

Kill more than 25 Drudge using only melee.

I found this confusing at first because these things had two names. Drudges and Octopus Dogs.

The best place to do this is Episode 4, Counter-Insurgency, Transfer of Authority chapter. Jump down off the platform and melee  (hit the “B” button) the ugly two-legged bugs around the Spore Tower. Do not kill the Spore Tower or the bugs will stop re-spawning.

Rapture                                                                                        20 G

Kill more than 250 Reborn.

Reborn are enemy soldiers turned into aliens. There are loads during the whole campaign, but if you want to rack them up quickly, there is a place where they continually re-spawn until you finish your objective.

Load Episode 4 Counter-Insurgency, 2nd chapter, Hearts and Minds. After you clear the medical center assault, your next objective is to use C4 to blow up the drain pipes. Don’t bother about setting the C4. Just continually shoot at the Reborn that spawn until the achievement unlocks.

Master Delegator                                                                        20 G

Get your squad  to help you get more than 250 Focus Fire Kills.

Load Episode 4 Counter-Insurgency, Transfer of Authority. Jump down off the platform and one of your teammates should automatically operate the turret on your left. Head to the other side of the compound and then hit RB to target the Drudges (Octopus Dogs) that spawn out of the Spore Tower.  A little red target should appear above them and your teammate on the turret should now be shooting them. This is a Focus Fire Kill.

Don’t kill the Spore Tower or they will stop spawning. It takes a little while, but you should eventually get 250 kills here.

Professional Motivator                                                               20 G

Get your squad to High Morale more than 20 times.

This is very easy to do on Yellow (easy). You need to do well in battle to get High Morale. What I did was not to take any damage and focus kill a lot. Your squad morale will become high. Then take damage and it will go back to low. You are bound to get it somewhere in the campaign if you play it on Yellow.

Small but mighty                                                                         10 G

Get more than 10 head shot kills with the pistol.

Try aiming at the Drudges. They have huge heads. This total is accumulative.

Magic Bullets                                                                               10 G

Get more than 10 kills while the M4 is equipped in Campaign.

This achievement is slightly glitched. The only way to get it is to get all ten kills, with one clip, WITHOUT reloading.

Long distance charges may apply                                            10 G

Get 5 kills while the Sniper Rifle is equipped in Campaign.

There’s a Sniper Rifle in the first level, when you each the very first compound. It is next to the gate on your left. Just shoot any 5 enemies here to get it.

Meatseeker                                                                                  10 G

Get more than 10 kills using the Antitank Launcher’s target-lock in Campaign.

This must be done by locking on to the target first. Click LT to zoom in and lock on to a target first, then fire. Your target reticle will turn red when you are locked on.

Load the Episode Topside, Catastrophic Success. There’s a Rocket Launcher ammo case with unlimited ammo. When you first enter the compound, head right towards the metal staircase next to the metal building. Climb to the top and jump onto the roof of the carport to grab your Rocket Launcher.

The ammo case for the Rocket Launcher is underneath the carport, next to the burnt out Humvee. This case continually has three rockets stocked.

Geometry Kills                                                                             10 G

Get 5 kills with the Scatter Gun’s bouncing projectiles in Campaign.

Load the Episode Topside, Catastrophic Success. There’s a Scatter Gun right next to the APC ( Armored Personnel Carrier) when you enter the compound and ammo all around. This can be a little glitchy as well. I managed to unlock the achievement by holding down RT for a couple of seconds, waiting for the gun to charge, then firing straight on.

Dodge This                                                                                  10 G

Get more than 10 kills by detonating the Plasma Rifle’s projectile in Campaign.

Another slightly glitchy achievement. This gun shoots big glowing projectiles. Hold RT after you shoot, then release to detonate the projectile near the enemies. That’s how I unlocked the achievement. Although it has been known to unlock by shooting them straight on.

Load the Episode Topside, Oversight. The two Reborns on top of the roof, drop Plasma Guns when you shoot them. Pick up the gun, then when you turn the corner to climb the set of railway sleepers near the fence, there’s an ammo case on your left. After you climb the fence, there’s about 20 enemies you can shoot at.

Going for the Gutso!                                                                   25 G

Get more than 100 kills with each weapon.

See “Look upon my works and despair” achievement.

The instrument of your doom!                                                   50 G

Get more than 200 kills with each weapon.

See “Look upon my works and despair” achievement.

Look upon my works and despair!                                          100 G

Get more than 400 kills with each weapon.

These achievements require 100, 200, and 400 kills with EACH weapon. They can be done through a combination of campaign and online multiplayer. However they can be a little time consuming, but if you know where to rack up the kills quickly, there’s no need to go through the whole campaign again.

The trick is to load an episode chapter where you can get the most kills with each weapon. Unfortunately there is no way of seeing how many kills you have racked up with each weapon, so you will have to make an estimated guess by how many times you have completed a chapter run through or how much ammo you have used.

Below is a list of each weapon and where to get the most kills. I recommend going through each weapon guide below until you think you have reached hundred, then change to another weapon. Once the 100 achievements pops up, run through the guides again to get 200 and so forth. 


Load the Episode Topside, Catastrophic Success. This is the one with the Spore Tower and unlimited rocket ammo case. See “Meatseeker” achievement above. Unlike the Meatseeker achievement, you do not have to rack up the kills using the Target Lock-On. Remember not to kill the Spore Tower or the Drudges stop respawning.

I found this the most time consuming as the Anti-tank Launcher only holds three rockets, and you continually have to dodge to reload and then run back to the ammo case.


Load the Episode Topside, Catastrophic Success. There is a Scatter Gun in front of you, next to the APC when you walk through the gate. Unfortunately there isn’t an unlimited ammo case like the Anti-tank Launcher, but there are about three or four cases with 50 rounds in each around the compound.

Unlike the Geometry Kills achievement, you do not have to hold RT to make the projectiles explode in mid-air. You can hit the Drudges straight on to rack up the kills. If you get up close, they get killed with one shot, otherwise it normally takes two shots. With this in mind, you can guess how many kills you have done. Once the ammo runs out, kill yourself with a grenade.


Load the Episode Topside, Oversight. Shoot the first six Reborns with the pistol or assault rifle to help with those achievements. Once you have shot the two Reborns on the roof and they will drop a Plasma Gun. Pick up the gun, then when you turn the corner to climb the set of railway sleepers near the fence, there’s an ammo case on your left. After you climb the fence, there’s about 20 enemies you can shoot at.

Once you get the objective that the helicopter is about to land, kill yourself with a grenade. Do this about 5-6 times, and the 100 achievement should unlock.


Load the Episode Topside, Oversight. Shoot the first six Reborns with the pistol or assault rifle to help with those achievements. Once you have cleared the area , turn the corner and next to the railway sleepers is a ammo case and a Sniper Rifle.  The ammo case has about 15 sniper rounds and there is another case inside the metal office on your left after you have cleared the fence.

You should be able to kill about 20 enemies here, so it is quite easy to keep count. Once you get the objective that the helicopter is about to land, kill yourself with a grenade.


If you like me, I hardly even used the pistol during the campaign. I recommend doing this on Episode Topside, Oversight, as you can keep track of how many kills by how many times you run through the chapter. I count about 26 enemies here you can shoot before the objective. Unlike the Small But Mighty achievement, you do not need to do head shots to rack up your kill count.


It is more than likely you could have racked up quite a few kills already if you have played through the campaign and used mainly the assault rifle. Just to be on the safe side, I recommend doing this on Episode Topside, Oversight, as you can keep track of how many kills by how many times you run through the chapter.

Researcher                                                                                  10 G

See “Investigator” achievement below.

There’s 48 of them and there is a separate menu under the Main Menu indicating how many you have collected. You can repeat levels to pick up any you have missed.
