    Achievement Walkthrough
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Anti Air - 15G - Bring down the Chopper
    
    For this Achievement, you must take down a Helicopter. The easiest part to do
    this is in Chapter 3, after you get the Black Hole ability. After collecting
    the briefcase in the Turkish Baths, exit the room and a 
    Helicopter will drop off some SWAT enemies.
    Kill them off via Black Hole, and stay up on the balcony. 
    Now, press RT to manifest the Darkness, and wait for the 
    Blue Lights to fill up. This is a time meter for the Black Hole.
    When it is filled, aim at the skylight and press RB. 
    If you are close enough to the Helicopter, the guy will 
    yell something and crash. Just keep manifesting, waiting for the meter,
    and casting the Black Hole until you get it.
    
    Another method is to cast the Black Hole, then explode it by pressing RB before 
    the meter has run out. Either of these methods will 
    work to bring down the Chopper.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Anti Hero - 25G - Complete the game on normal setting 
    
    Self explanatory. You must beat the game, all 5 chapters, 
    on normal difficulty. 
    This is not a walkthrough, so if you need help with this 
    one, refer to GameSpot’s guide.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Beginnings - 25G - Complete the first part of the game
    
    Self explanatory. You must beat the first chapter on any difficulty. 
    This is not a walkthrough, so if you need help with this one, 
    refer to GameSpot’s guide.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Bringing People Together - 5G - Trap 5 enemies within a Black Hole
    
    You must kill 5 enemies at once, in the same Black Hole.
    
    This easiest part to do this is in Chapter 3 or 5. First, find 
    Terence Willis in the Canal Street Station. He will be sitting 
    in a corner at one of the ends near the tracks. Terence will ask you to 
    take out a gang near the Whitefish Poolhall, 
    which is located in Lower East Side. Exit from the Fulton Station entrance 
    into Lower East Side and continue to walk forward. Turn left at the end 
    of the street and follow this road 
    straight. At the end of the road will be the entrance to Pier 19, and 
    to the left will be another road. Follow this road to the Poolhall, 
    where exactly 5 gang members will be 
    standing. Wait for the girl with a mohawk to meet up with her friends, 
    and quickly shoot out a light, manifest, and cast the Black Hole. 
    If you don’t get all of them into 
    the hole, reload your last checkpoint and try again.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Bullet Dodger - 20G - Finish a multiplayer match with less 
    than 5 deaths (minimum 4 players)
    
    I know the multiplayer is laggy most of the time and barely 
    anyone plays, but it is still possible to get the achievements. For this one, 
    join a Deathmatch game, transform into a Darkling, and hide. 
    You can climb walls as a Darkling by 
    holding LT. If you’re skilled, just participate in the game and 
    try not to die too much.
    
    See “Multiplayer Achievements” section to see how to do this 
    easier with a friend.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Butcher - 25G - Claim 20 killing streaks in multiplayer
    
    A killing streak is when you kill 4 opponents without dying. 
    Now, if you want to do this legit, just join a game and begin killing. 
    Jumping at an opponent as a Darkling deals a considerable amount of 
    damage, but you are also more susceptible 
    to attacks that way. After a gun fight, transform into a Darkling and 
    run to find health, then find another opponent. These don’t all have 
    to be done in one game.
    
    See “Multiplayer Achievements” section to see how to do this 
    easier with a friend.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Cannibal - 25G - Devour 300 enemies
    
    As soon as you get the Creeping Dark ability, start eating 
    the hearts of every enemy. Basically all you have to do for this is 
    eat every single heart you come across. Never run from 
    enemies, they die so easily. If you’re having trouble, 
    lower the difficulty and try again. 
    
    See “Finding Enemies” section if you need help locating 
    good amounts of foes.
    		
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Completionist - 20G - Unlock 100 collectables
    
    Find every collectable phone number/letter in the game to 
    unlock this. There is no need to write all these out, because 
    there is already a great guide on GameFAQs.
    
    Refer to Collectable/Sidequest Guide by modemman11.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Contract Killer - 25G - Be on the winning side in 50 multiplayer matches
    
    You must win 50 matches, on any mode. Most people play D
    eathmatch these days, but those games last quite a while.

    this with a friend
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Crazy for You - 25G - Acquire Black Hole
    
    In Chapter 3, you will have to travel to the Turkish Baths. 
    While in the City Hall station on your way to the baths, you will 
    come across a man sitting behind bulletproof glass. Kill this guy 
    and devour his heart to gain the Black Hole ability.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Darkling Master - 15G - Acquire all Darkling types
    
    You must find all 4 types of Darklings (mandatory for beating the game). 
    When you first gain the Darkness abilities in Trinity Cemetery, 
    you automatically get the Berserker Darkling.
    
    After chasing down Dutch Oven Harry through the apartment in Chapter 1, 
    devouring his heart will give you the Gunner Darkling.
    
    You get the third Darkling, the Kamikaze Darkling in Chapter 2, a 
    little way into the first trench, after the plane crashes into the wall.
    
    The fourth and final Darkling is obtained in Chapter 2 when in the 
    German Bunker. You must turn off each water generator, but one of 
    them is broken. Devour the heart from the nearby body to 
    obtain the Lightkiller Darkling.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Darkness Master - 100G - Only for those who are completely 
    in tune with the Darkness

    Darkness Guns - 100%
    Darklings - 100%
    
    Simply put, you have to use each of the abilities a certain number 
    of times. In your quest to get all achievements, you will come 
    very close to this one after getting the others. You must kill a 
    certain amount of enemies with Creeping Dark,
    Demon Arm, Black Hole, and Darkness Guns, and you must 
    summon a certain amount of Darklings.

    Knuckle, Meet Face - 5G - Perform a melee kill for the first time
    
    A melee kill is when you hit an enemy rather than shoot them. 
    With two handed weapons, such as the Shotgun, just press the 
    Left Trigger to hit people. It may take a couple swings to 
    kill them. With the Handgun of Uzi’s, you need to 
    let them run out of ammo, then use the respective trigger 
    to hit someone.

    Legendary Dark - 35G - Complete the game on hard setting
    
    Self explanatory. You must beat the game, all 5 chapters, 
    on hard difficulty. This is not a walkthrough, so if you need 
    help with this one, refer to GameSpot’s guide.
    
    
    Some people have reported that it is glitched, and that if you 
    beat it on Hard during your first play through, you will not get 
    the achievement for beating it on Normal. So, you should 
    first beat it on Normal, load up each chapter and set it 
    to Hard, and beat each chapter in one sitting. People have also 
    reported that playing Multiplayer in between sessions on 
    Hard will glitch the achievement.

    Legendary Executioner - 20G - Kill 50 enemies using execution moves
    
    An execution move is when you walk right up close to an enemy 
    and press on of the trigger buttons. An instant death attack will 
    be performed. You must perform 50 of these attacks.
    
    See “Finding Enemies” section if you need help locating 
    good amounts of foes.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Legendary Summoner - 25G - Summon 50 Darklings
    
    You must use the Summon Portals to summon any 50 Darklings. 
    You cannot simply stand above one portal and keep summoning 
    different Darklings, nor can you run back and forth between 
    portals. You must summon each Darkling from a different 
    portal. So whenever you see a portal (manifest the Darkness 
    in order to see them), summon. 
    
    I believe you can summon a Darkling, leave the area, triggering 
    a loading screen, then go back and summon another. 
    This is not confirmed, I will test it very soon.

    Made Man - 35G - Be on the winning side in 100 multiplayer matches

    Murderer - 5G - Kill enough players to achieve a killing 
    streak within a multiplayer match
    
    A killing streak is when you kill 4 opponents without dying. 
    Now, if you want to do this legit, just join a game and begin 
    killing. Jumping at an opponent as a Darkling deals a 
    considerable amount of damage, but you are also more susceptible 
    to attacks that way. After a gun fight, transform into a Darkling 
    and run to find health, then find another opponent.
    
    See “Multiplayer Achievements” section to see how to do this 
    easier with a friend.

    trenches where you begin.

    One with the Dark - 25G - Achieve maximum Darkness level
    
    As soon as you get the Creeping Dark ability, start eating the 
    hearts of every enemy. Basically all you have to do for this is 
    eat every single heart you come across. Never run from 
    enemies, they die so easily. If you’re having trouble, lower 
    the difficulty and try again. I believe you need 180 
    Hearts for the maximum Darkness level.
    
    See “Finding Enemies” section if you need help locating 
    good amounts of foes.

    Picking Up Stuff - 5G - Unlock a collectable for the first time
    
    Find one collectable phone number/letter in the game to unlock this. 
    There is no need to write all these out, because there 
    is already a great guide on GameFAQs.
    
    The first one is on the floor after Mikey gives you the guns and 
    you shoot the lock in Chapter 1. Dial this number when 
    you get to the Subway for the achievment.

    Ripper - 15G - Kill 30 enemies using Demon Arm
    
    You must impale 30 enemies using the Demon Arm after acquiring it 
    in Chapter 2. This however, does not work on the Nazi soldiers because 
    they only die if you eat their hearts. 
    
    See “Finding Enemies” section if you need help locating

    Roadkill - 10G - Kill the workers in the tunnel
    
    At the very beginning of Chapter 1, you start off in a car. After 
    acquiring the Shotgun, you must kill 6 workers in the tunnel. This 
    can be very hard and frustrating since you only have 
    a few seconds to shoot each one, and you have to watch 
    the long cutscene every time you restart. 
    
    To get this achievement, play on Easy mode. That will ensure that 
    one shot will kill a worker. Also, put your sensitivity up higher, 
    so that if you do miss, you can swing around and 
    shoot again. One last thing, put Auto-Aim at it’s highest (Advanced 
    Controls). Now, right when you get the ability to shoot, shoot out 
    the windshield and get ready. There is no reloading, 
    so always fire your gun. There are around 10 workers, 
    you only need to kill 6. Try memorizing each workers place since you 
    will be trying this multiple times.

    Romantic - 10G - Real guys stick around for their ladies
    
    This achievement is obtained in Chapter 1, when you are going 
    to meet up with Jenny. Her new apartment is in Chinatown, just 
    through an alley. When you get there, she will tell you 
    that Butcher called and she left his number on the table. 
    Don’t call Butcher yet. Wait till Jenny sits down and join her. 
    A movie will start and you will talk. Don’t get up until 
    you get the achievement. She will start to fall asleep, 
    but just keep waiting, and pick the option to tell her you love her. 
    Eventually you will get it.

    Take a Look at the Sky - 50G - Take down 6 airplanes
    
    In Chapter 4, after getting back to the British trenches, Anthony 
    will bring you on a little ride in the tank. You must take out 
    6 airplanes flying overhead and shooting at you. It isn’t 
    that hard, just keep your finger on the trigger the 
    whole time, so you are always shooting. Anthony will let you know 
    when planes are coming and from what direction. There are 
    way more than 6, so it shouldn’t be a problem. Just 
    like most achievements, reload the checkpoint if you don’t get it.

    General Tips

    Finding Enemies				EN1
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
    
    A lot of the achievements require you to kill 30 enemies using a 
    certain power, such as the Demon Arm or the Black Hole. Some 
    require you to get a certain number of Execution Kills. 
    Now, if you have played through the game not using these,
    and just shooting people, it will be hard to find enough 
    enemies to get all these achievements.
    
    There is, however, one part in the game where there are 
    infinite enemies. This is at the very end, so you really 
    don’t have to worry about using your powers a certain number of 
    times until the very end. Once you are at the secret island 
    that Paulie is hiding at, continue along until you reach the top, 
    where his mansion is. Outside, giant spotlights will come on. 
    Shoot them out and continue to kill everyone in the 
    area. Don’t enter the house. Now, once everyone is gone, look straight 
    at the mansion and run to your right. There is a little hiding 
    place near the side of the house where you 
    can lure enemies. From the far left side of the house, 2 enemies will 
    come every couple of seconds. Come out from hiding so that they 
    see you, then go back and wait for them to 
    come. This may be a bit lengthy, but it does work. 
    
    Now at one point or another, people will stop coming. Just come out 
    of hiding and run around for a bit, and more enemies will come. 
    You can keep doing this until all “killing achievements” are received.

    Multiplayer Achievements			MU1
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Most of the Multiplayer Achievements require you to play tons of 
    games and get tons of wins. Now, this just isn’t possible due to 
    the small amount of people that play online, and the lag in lots 
    of games. Therefore, I have come up with 
    this surefire way to get the achievements.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    *Note: I have not stolen this strategy in any way, it was 
    discovered by me and my friend. Using this strategy, and with a 
    little practice, you can be winning games in less than one minute.*
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    You or a friend must host the game. Here is what your 
    settings should be:
    
    Gametype: Capture the Flag
    Race: Darklings
    Level: Your choice, I prefer the Subway.
    
    Your Advanced Settings should be:
    Private Slots: 0
    Auto Balance: No
    Time Limit: 5
    Score Limit: 10
    Capture Limit: 3
    Auto Map Cycle: No
    Randomize Teams: No
    Friendly Fire: No
    One Hit Kills: No
    Join Game in Progress: No
    Maximum Players: 2
    Weapons: All
    
    Now, once you press “Create Game”, wait until your friend joins. 
    Both of you go on the same team. You will be winning against 
    nobody, yet it still counts as a win. After the 5 
    second warmup, both run to the opposing flag, and whoever gets 
    there first, grab it and go capture it. The remaining player 
    will wait at the flag so that right when your partner 
    captures it, you grab it and then you capture it. Your partner 
    will then run back as you are capturing it. After three captures, 
    the game will be over. With a bit of practice, you can 
    win in less than one minute per game. Make sure that 
    you are optimizing time by standing on the flag spot 
    while your partner is capturing.
