Attempting an exact walkthrough for each mission on the possibilities of accomplishing these goals would be a tedious and unnecessary task. I will, therefore, list the way that I have accomplished the Quick Mission Achievements; and tips, locations, and ways on how best to accomplish the Secondary Objectives. I. Quick Mission Achievement Guide These Achievements can be done in any order, on any Quick Mission, at any difficulty setting. The majority can be done on two maps, only one try on each map. You must complete the mission if you wish to recieve the Achievements. The two maps I used to do this were, "Need Your Cojones, Son" and "Unpleasant Surprise." Achievement Goals (in no particular order): Team 'Elite' - Team gains +50% of kills, no team member injured; Bull's Eye - You have 100% accuracy; Predator - You initiate all combat; Hawk's Eye - All intel gained outside of combat; Iron Man - You do not get injured. A. "Need Your Cojones, Son" The Achievements sought in this mission are: Team 'Elite,' Bull's Eye, and Iron Man. At the beginning of the mission, you get to choose your team and your weapons. Keep in mind, you are going to do your best not to let yourself or your team get injured, so you will have no need for a medic when setting this up. Also, as you want to have 100% accuracy, it is best to go with a scoped rifle, and make sure it is in single shot mode. I used the Scar Lcqc, and my team consisted of a rifle man, gunner, and marksman. After your insertion, and you have chosen your team, you will need to make your way toward the current objective (East). There will be 3 people inside the village. Put your team near one of the half walls, and let them take out all 3 of the enemy (make sure to switch them back to recon after they are finished). Now, with the village clear, move forward and toward the eastern (left) path. You can head the other way if you wish, but if you are following this guide, it will just cause you to have to run around more later. Upon arriving at the objective point, you will be alerted that you have been granted UAV access. Whether you use it or not to discover the location of your opponents is up to you. Continue moving along the path until you start travelling down hill and see a couple of ruined houses. A little down from the ruined house on the left (south-southeast), there will be a half wall. Send your team there, and then order them to attack. There are generally 3 enemies immediately outside for them to kill. Let them kill all 3. If the 4th does not move out, then send your team into the tunnel to kill him also. Put them back into recon afterwards. Move them away from the tunnel, and blow up the artillery hidden inside. Now continue toward the next objective. There are several ways upon which to arrive there, but no matter which way you take, you should end up coming out just up the hill from another ruined house. Send your team inside, and then order them to attack. Once again, there should be 3 enemies out in the open, let your team take them all out. After they are finished, there is a small path of land toward the north of your position. Enter from the side closest to the ruined house that your team was in, and work your way around. At the other end, there will be a person sitting behind some sandbags, but he will be on the same side as you. Once again, let your team take him out, then order them back to recon. From this position, continue toward the artillery piece and then demolish it (make sure your team is somewhere away from it). Now continue toward the southeast from the artillery piece and you should enter a path heading toward the closest bridge to where that artillery piece was. You want to cross this bridge (note the location of the boxes), then move toward the west (right) where you will find a road leading up to the road- bridge. Set your team up behind the rock, and just peak out onto the road- bridge and shoot one enemy. Make sure that you hit on any shots you take, or you will fail the Bull's Eye Achievement. The truck should begin moving down as you go back toward the cover of the rock. Wait for the truck to approach a bit, then order your team to take it out. They should be able to do so before it escapes (Secondary Objective). Now move your team to the cover of one of the boxes near the bridge that you had crossed into this area. The further back the box, the better their line of sight will be. Order them to open fire, then move back toward the road-bridge. Make sure to keep cover, and help your team to mop up the remaining enemies (just make sure that they stay +50% of the total enemies killed). After you are done, the new objective of meeting the humvee for extraction will come up. Head across the road-bridge to the humvee. Mission completed, as long as you didn't miss any target and you and your team didn't get injured, you should have all three Achievements. B. "Unpleasant Surprise" An actual walkthrough for this mission is unnecessary. It is a straighforward helicopter side door mission. The Achievement goals are: Predator and Hawk's Eye. You will be in the helicopter, on the side door gun turret the entire mission. Your goal is to kill everyone you can, with the emphasis being on the enemy vehicles. I'm not sure if there are actually any stipulations to the Achievements on this mission. I got them both in one try. I destroyed all of the enemy vehicles and shot almost every single enemy. As long as you can do that, you should recieve both Achievements at the end. II. Secondary Objectives (AKA Mission Accomplished Achievement) I tried to include all the secondary objective vehicles. It can be hard to tell all of the ones that count though, and I may have accidentally skipped one. If anyone knows with absolute certainty where another secondary objective is, please notify me so that I can update this as soon as possible. I will be continuing to play this game as it is my favorite, as of right now, and if I come across anymore, I will be sure to update this. This is not a full-on walkthrough of every mission. There are already full walkthroughs posted, and I didn't not feel obligated to repeat that. This part is for those people that have went through the game, or are going through the game, but do not want to miss a secondary objective. Tips: The secondary objectives are all vehicle (fleeing vehicle) related. If you want to play it safe, destroy all enemy vehicles. Worried about ammo? Don't forget that you can pick up and use enemy weapons for the job. Also, use your team as often as possible. The best way to stop the trucks is to get a good angle on the driver, and take them out. Then you can destroy the vehicle whenever you get a chance. Just remember, if it must be destroyed, you have to do it before the next major mission objective, or it won't count. If you are just doing this for the achievement and you miss it, but don't want to play through the whole thing again, then you can frag yourself. It will reload you at the last checkpoint. Also, it is best to go through the main campaign first. Then none of what I say here will be a spoiler for you. All the Quick Missions will tell you if you have completed their secondary objective requirements. You can complete these secondary objectives on any difficulty setting. A. "Need Your Cojones, Son" See the Quick Mission Achievements section above. B. "Knock 'Em Dead" You meet up with the mule and then take out a handful of enemies. Afterwards, you will move into position above a big open area. Toward the left (east) of your position there will be a truck. Normally, it does not flee until after you are done taking out or chasing off the enemies. Take out the driver, you should have a good line of fire on him as he tries to flee the area. Then, destroy the vehicle at your leisure. C. "Unpleasant Surprise" Helicopter side door mission, you can't check objectives by use of the 'back' button here. Just make sure to destroy all enemy vehicles, kill as many of the enemy as you can, and complete the mission. You should recieve the secondary objective, I did. D. "This Place Is An Inferno" On this one, you will get the secondary objective after the first objective of reaching the mule. Make sure you equip the ZEUS T2. You will have to head toward your next objective, which is a tank. There is a building over looking the area that is the best position. The tank will be to the north. If you look toward the northwest, to the front left of the tank, you will see a jeep. You must take it out with the ZEUS T2 before you go after the tank, and you have to be quick about it. The jeep will quickly flee the area. Then you can feel free to take out the tank. E. "You'll Be Inserted Solo" When you get down to where it says 'checkpoint' and 'objective complete,' there will be a sandbag position to the southeast corner of the map. Set up behind this area, and then face north-northwest. Two trucks will appear, and from this angle you should have a good line of sight on each driver. Destroy them at your leisure. You will then be tasked with crossing the graveyard to meet up with your support. At the end of the graveyard, you will be granted a UAV and have to go to the mule. After the mule, check the map. The yellow square is where the next fleeing vehicle must be taken out. On this one, you are going to want to head around east of that position, and come in from the north. Be careful, there are hidden soldiers, other than in the yellow objective mark. If you enter from the north, you will have an excellent position on the vehicle's driver. If you come from the south, without a grenade launcher or ZEUS, you are likely not going to stop the target. F. "The Price of Peace" After you take out the AA's, you will be sent to a checkpoint where you will get to modify your team and pick new weapons. You will need a grenadier and anti-tank gunner. It is best if you pick up a grenade launcher of some sort for yourself too. Play through until the end of the mission when you get to the area near the extraction point where the helicopter flies over. Send your team forward toward the helicopter, and when they get close to that area, head in yourself. When you approach, the helo comes under fire and gets taken out. Put your team behind cover and get behind cover yourself. Order your team to attack the enemy helo that approaches on the right (east) first. Then, use your grenade launcher to keep the other helo off balance until your team finishes off the first. After the first one is taken out, order your team to finish off the second one. There will be an enemy attack helo that comes not too long after. Have your team take that one down too, just to be safe. G. "On Your Own" It never actually says there is a secondary objective, and so its hard for me to be sure which vehicle did it. Starting out, there will be an enemy truck near your position to the north-northeast. Take out the driver, if there is one, and destroy at your leisure. After you reach the mule, grab the ZEUS T2 again. There will be two jeeps further in, one manned and one unmanned. Take them out with the ZEUS. Closer to the extraction point, you will be alerted of two incoming helicopters. Equip the ZEUS and take them both down. H. "Failure Is Not An Option" Another helicopter side door mission. Take out as many hostiles as possible, destroy all enemy vehicles, and protect the convoy. I. "Get Me Rosen" After you blast the blackhawk in to little tiny pieces, there will be two camps you are ordered to clear out. The first one is west of the blackhawks position, and is the only one of signifigance here. There will be a truck parked near the building in this camp that definitely counts as a secondary objective. There will also be three vehicles that approach the hacienda after you have secured Rosen. I don't believe that these are secondary objectives. However, if you take them down, you will be greatly benifiting yourself by limiting the number of enemies that you have to fight. It would also be the safe thing to do. J. "Who The Hell Are These Guys" After you defend the checkpoint position against enemies while awaiting Bravo and their ill fated search for the nukes, you will be told to head to a checkpoint where you will have the chance to switch out team members and weapons. Pick whatever you would like, as they will not be necessary in accomplishing the secondary objective. When that is done, turn right (south) where you will see a building not too far in front of you. There is an alley to the left side of the building, there is a ramp up the side and a bunch of debris. Head up the ramp to the top of the building. You should be getting helo support around now, and you should see two purple targets (fleeing vehicles). Being careful to note the direction that they are travelling in, order the helo to attack the truck in the front of the convoy. After it is done with that one, the other one should be bottled in, have the helo take it out. K. "Codenamed Farallon" Entering this mission, you will want the grenadier and the anti-tank. Feel free to choose whichever weapon makes you happiest, I would suggest a scoped rifle of some sort. After your first objective, you will be given two areas to clear out. The one to the south is the one that you should do first. Stay toward the street, and clear out as much as possible from this position. Leave your team here, and then you and the Mexican loyals should head in and finish the rest of the enemies off. When you finish, an enemy helo will fly in. Have the team you left behind take it out. At the end of the mission, you will come up against two more helos. Use your team to the best of their abilities, and make use of the grenade launchers scattered around the buildings. I'm not sure these two helos are secondary objectives, but I always enjoyed taking them both down. L. "Just Shut Up And Do Your Job" There will be an APC that pops up fairly quick at the very beginning. Any team should be able to take it out, as it is fairly close range. You may have to help them to finish it off, and you may have to change their position. I always sent them toward the building toward the southeast of where they start off, while I take up their previous position. After it gets behind the building to the east, you don't have much time left. It will leave after it deploys its load. Up the hill and past the building on top, there will be a jeep that will drive in circles. Take it out. The area down the hill (big paved area, hard to miss), you will have another encounter with enemy troops. Toward the right of the area (south) there will be two trucks. You won't have long to destroy them. If you have trouble with it, try moving toward the south end of the fence and take out the drivers before entering the area. I'm not sure it will work, I entered the area and was able to take them out with my team members. III.
