    A. Introduction
    ===============================================================================
    
    This guide is a tool to help you gain all the achievements available in 
    Condemned 2: Bloodshot. Due to the vague descriptions of the achievements
    provided by the game as well as the lack of a clear, concise achievement 
    guide available elsewhere on the internet, I decided to make this guide to 
    help people out. Single player guides exist with pictures of the locations of
    the emitters, antennas, etc, so I will not be covering those in my guide, at
    least not yet. I'm aware that most of these achievements are painfully easy to
    obtain, but this is my first guide, and therefore it's a learning 
    experience for me. Also, if you have any suggestions/strategies/corrections to 
    tell me about, I'll be glad to use them! Just email me with the subject line 
    as "Condemned" or something relating to the guide, and I'll check it as soon 
    as I can. Thanks for checking out the guide!
    
    ===============================================================================
    B. Update History
    ===============================================================================
    
    Version 1.0 (04/07/08)
      -Initial draft, included all achievements
    
    Version 1.1 (04/09/08)
      -Added extra information thanks to Robert Joyce
      -Noted permission to host on a number of websites.
    
    Version 1.2 (05/01/08)
      -Added some helpful notes sent to me by Squizur Boom and Spyrock47.
    
    ===============================================================================
    C. Single Player Achievements
    ===============================================================================
    
    These achievements are attained through playing single player.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. Anger Management - 10 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Perform an emotional response ten times. These are the instances in single 
    player where the prompt to push the A button appears. When you see them, 
    simply hit A and soon enough you will have the achievement.
    
    "This can be done in Multiplayer as well.  When someone gets behind you, a 
    prompt will say "Push A" and you can do a quick 180 degree turnaround.  
    If you turn around and hit the guy 10 times you shoudl get this without 
    ever playing Single Player." -RJ
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2. Beat Cop - 10 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Simply complete the first level of the story mode and you will get this 
    achievement.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3. Big Game Hunter - 10 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    To get this achievement, you must kill ten enemies with the antler. 
    The antler can be found on the mission Black Lake Lodge, but the enemies 
    there are heavily armed and you must complete the first half of the level 
    to even reach the antler to begin with. A simpler way to complete this 
    achievement is to go to the Bloodshot Fight Club practice arena and select 
    "exotic combat". The enemies that spawn will ocassionally be carrying an 
    antler that you can use to get the achievement. You can also get the 
    GOOOAAALLL! and Flambe achievements using this method.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4. Bloodshot - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete up to mission 8 in the single player for this achievement. 
    This will unlock all the Bloodshot Fight Clubs, which gives you the achievement.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5. Can You Hear Me Now? - 30 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    To gain this achievement you must destroy all the emitters in each 
    level of the game. Since they are often in hard-to-reach areas, I have 
    found this to be the easiest while going through in FPS mode, where you 
    are always given a firearm. I would make a list of locations, but there 
    is a nifty walkthrough on the internet with pictures already. See my 
    credits section for a link.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6. Chain Gang - 30 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    For this one, you must execute 5 of each type on chain attack on an enemy.
    Chain attacks are performed by rapidly pressing the right or left triggers
    while hitting an enemy. There are three chain attacks for each hand, which
    are differentiated by how much your chain attack bar (top right corner) is
    filled. Having one full bar lets you do a level 1, two bars a level 2, etc.
    It is easy to get this by either replaying the first area of the Commuter
    Tracks mission or fighting in the practice arena.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    7. Chief Investigator - 50 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete every level of the single player game on hard mode.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    8. Decisive Restraint - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    On the museum level, do not kill any guards. It is fine if enemies kill a
    guard, but do not hit the guards yourself. If you need to get rid of a guard,
    fight them with your fists until they fall unconcious. Don't let any thrown 
    items hit them or they will die, this happened to me while trying to get
    this achievement.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    9. Detective - 30 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete a level on FPS mode, unlocked after you beat the game once.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    10. Detective - First Grade - 50 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete the entire game in FPS mode. This is a very easy mode to complete,
    you can clear a level in a few minutes if you know where to go.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    11. EPA (Environmental Pwnage Area) - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Successfully perform 25 environmental kills on enemies. These are the moves
    done after you grab an enemy from their knees and bring them to the floating
    white logos. You should be able to get this before you finish your first run 
    through of the single player.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    12. Flambe - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    For the Flambe combo, you must first throw a bottle of alcohol at an enemy.
    Then, tase the enemy, and he will light on fire and die. Do this ten times
    and you'll get this achievement. An easy place to do this is in the Bloodshot
    Fight Club Practice arena where you can select alcohol bottles to be placed in
    the arena. You can also do the GOOOAAALLL! and Big Game Hunter achievements
    there.
    
    NOTE - I was informed this can be done using molotov cocktails in the arena. 
    I can't confirm, but it probably works, I just did it the hard way. 
    Thanks SpyRock47!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    13. Gold-Plated - 50 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Get a gold rating in every level for this achievement. I found this easiest to
    do in FPS mode. For a gold, you must find all the antennas, emitters, and 
    complete investigations and other objectives perfectly. Don't forget easy to
    miss investigations like the sign before the stairs on the museum level, 
    the writing on the wall next to the boat launch in the lodge, and the bowling 
    bag next to the score card in the bowling alley.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    14. GOOOAAALLL! - 10 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Kill five enemies with the fooseball stick for this achievement. You can find
    the fooseball piece in the bowling alley level, but an easier way to find it is
    in the Bloodshot Fight Club Practice Arena. Simply select exotic melee from the
    options and you will see the fooseball piece laying on the ground. It breaks
    easily, so be careful. If you need another, just restart the mission or wait
    for an enemy to appear with one. You can also do the Flambe and Big Game Hunter
    achievements here.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    15. Investigator - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Finish any level on hard mode and you will get this achievement.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    16. Master Investigator - 50 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Get a "perfect" rating on every single investigation in the game.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    17. Self Medicated - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Simply heal yourself a number of times using the health kits found around the
    levels. You should get this achievement after a few levels of gameplay.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    18. Sleuth - 10 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Get a perfect rating in an investigation sequence. The first investigation
    in the apartment building is easy, so you will probably get this on your first
    playthrough of that level.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    19. The Final Word - 10 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Perform an environmental kill after bringing an enemy to his knees. Simply
    press both triggers when prompted and bring the enemy to one of the 
    white floating logos and you'll smash his head in some fun, unique way. Oh, and
    youll get the achievement. :)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    20. The Plumber - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Kill 50 enemies using the pipe weapon. If you do not get this in the course
    of playing the single player missions, go to the Bloodshot Fight Club Practice
    Arena and select light melee. The pipe will be leaning against the wall and you
    can kill with it to your heart's content.
    
    "Multiplayer kills count towards this.  Note that in Multiplayer Deathmatch 
    you get to start with either the Pipe or Brick." -RJ
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    21. Trooper - 30 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Complete the game on any difficulty.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    22. Tune in Tokyo - 30 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Find every antenna in every mission. Nifty picture guides are around for these,
    and I cite one at the end of my guide.
    
    ===============================================================================
    D. Multiplayer Achievements
    ===============================================================================
    
    The online multiplayer achievements are quite a bit harder than the single
    player ones, so I will do my best to give you the best strategies to use in
    order to get these without simply telling you to boost. :P
    
    All achievements are able to be completed in player matches except two, which
    are noted.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. Ala Mode - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Play every game mode (Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Crime Scene, Bum Rush) five
    times apiece. 
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2. Brick Wall - 10 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Block an enemy attack five times in an online game for this achievement. This
    would be much easier if it weren't for the lag... it's easy to get, though.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3. Bum King - 30 GP ***NEED RANKED MATCH AND 4 PLAYERS MINIMUM*** -RJ
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    One of the most difficult achievements in the game. You must play as SCU in a
    bum rush game and survive the 3 minutes without firing a shot from the gun you
    start with. There also must be at least 4 players in the game at the end of the
    match or it will not count. Personally, I hosted a game of Bum Rush myself to
    have first chance at SCU and set it on the Doll Factory level. I would simply
    holster my gun to avoid accidentally firing it and grab the sledgehammer which
    is leaning up against one of the center cylindrical tanks next to a toilet
    seat. I would then run to the back and hide behind the three tanks by the table
    and use sprint attacks which kill influenced players in one hit. The best tip I
    can offer you is to KEEP MOVING if you feel overwhelmed. If you are moving, 
    they will waste more time looking for you and have a harder time hitting you 
    with molotov coctails and other projectiles. Having another SCU player also 
    helps.
    
    "FIRST of the 2 Multiplayer achievements that requires a RANKED game." -RJ
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4. Collector - 10 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Scan the evidence 5 times as SCU in a Crime Scene match to get this achievement.
    Pull out your scanner with the X button and scan using the A button. You have 
    two opportunities in each round to scan the evidence, so after a few rounds of
    Crime Scene you should get the achievement.
    
    "I found out the easiest way to get the "Just The Facts" and "Collector" 
    achievements. Even if you don't have xbox live! :) Just start a "System Link" 
    match in the MP menu. Create a match, choose Crime scene and then pick the 
    SCU side. When the game starts you'll be the only player in the level of 
    course. Just run to the other side and scan those boxes. The first 5 scans 
    will give you the Collector achievement and another 5 will give you the Just 
    The Facts one. So basically you just have to play for a couple of minutes and 
    do 5 rounds and you'll get the 35 gamerpoints :)"
    -Thanks to Squizur boom for the tip! Incredibly easy to do it this way.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5. Cut-throat - 30 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Perform 25 finishing moves in online games. These work almost the same as
    environmental kills in single player; when an enemy is stumbling, pull both
    triggers and you will perform a finishing move. The only difference is that
    you don't have to bring him to an environmental kill location. Just play some
    Deathmatch games and do these when you kill enemies and you'll have the
    achievement soon enough.
    
    "Multiplayer kills count towards this." -RJ  
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6. Defender - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Defend the evidence as infected 10 times in Crime Scene mode. You don't have to
    win the round, just kill an SCU player when he is near a piece of evidence. You
    should see an "evidence defended bonus" appear on your screen.
    
    "A sure fire way to get a "Defend" is to kill a SCU guy when he has his 
    scanner out and is scanning a case." -RJ
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    7. Just the Facts - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Same as Collector, scan the evidence 10 times as SCU in a Crime Scene match to 
    get this achievement. Pull out your scanner with the X button and scan using 
    the A button. You have two opportunities in each round to scan the evidence, 
    so after a few rounds of Crime Scene you should get the achievement.
    
    See the "Collector" achievement for an easy way to get this achievement.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    8. Magellan - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Play each multiplayer map 5 times. If no games are up with the map you need,
    just make your own game, you bum!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    9. MP Overachiever - 50 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    By far the hardest achievement to get in the game. You must get 15 kills in a
    deathmatch game and then not die for the duration of it. That's ten minutes of
    gameplay without dying. Yeah, it's a nightmare. The best real strategy I came
    up with is to play very, very carefully in the Underground level. Use shadows
    to your advantage and practice blocking and timing, and use ranged weapons
    effectively. When you get the 15 kills, either hide in a dark corner and pray to
    the gaming gods that no one finds you or move around quickly and avoid any 
    fighting at all. Truly a beast of an achievement without boosting.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    10. Punch Drunk - 10 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Kill 10 players with your fists only. Simply run around in a deathmatch game
    swinging wildly and this achievement will come to you. It's a lot easier than
    it sounds.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    11. Restraint... Not - 30 GP ***NEED RANKED MATCH AND 4 PLAYERS MINIMUM*** -RJ
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    To get this achievement, you must win Crime Scene matches as SCU without firing
    a shot from any guns. This is actually a lot easier than it sounds. Most games 
    of Crime Scene are won by the SCU easily, so you can get away with tossing your 
    gun at the start and relying on your teammates to supply the heavy firepower.
    You can still swing a melee weapon, so it's not like you become useless. Just
    persevere with this one and you'll get it before you know it.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    12. Rush Champ - 25 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Kill the SCU player 5 times as the Influenced in a Bum Rush game. This is a
    team effort so you do not have to deliver the final blow.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    13. Serial Killer - 50 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Get 1000 kills total in online matches to get this achievement. This one is
    not that difficult, it just takes some time (obviously). Playing Bum Rush
    matches as SCU or just playing Deathmatch games are the quickest way to rack up
    kills. Other than that, it's your own personal skill as well as luck that 
    defines how long this one will take to get.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    14. Sidekick - 10 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Assist in scanning the evidence as SCU 10 times in Crime Scene mode. When 
    another player begins to scan the evidence, begin to scan the evidence along 
    with him until it completes.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    15. SKX - 50 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Slightly difficult achievement, but ultimately based on luck. You must kill 9
    unique players that have the Serial Killer achievement in order to get this
    achievement. In your course to get 1000 kills yourself, it is likely that you
    will encounter these 9 people, but if not, tough luck, youll just have to keep
    playing. :)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    16. Survivor King - 30 GP
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Survive as SCU in a Bum Rush game 5 times. This is fairly easy to do,
    especially with halfway decent aim with the assault rifle. Just play on large,
    open maps, such as Doll Factory, and this achievement will be a piece of cake.

    For his sticky post on the gamefaqs forum about the achievements. It cleared 
    up a lot of stuff initially for me and I feel like im just being a jerk and 
    writing a fancy guide in his place. :P
    
    Credit to the contributors to the guide on Mycheats.com
    The picture guide there was amazing, and helped me to find all the hidden
    things in the game. Very useful!

    He emailed me a list of very useful extra info that I put in the guide and 
    market with "RJ". Thanks man! :)
