    A) Guide Introduction
    
    There are 47 achievements with a total of 1,000 Gamerscore points for this 
    game. Two of those achievements are Secrets, and I have also included those.
    
    You cannot get campaign achievements while playing Co-op on XBOX LIVE.
    
    At the start of some achievements, I will add a comment to tell you 
    that this achievement can be combined with another achievement to save you 
    time, so make sure you check for it. 
    
    ALL of the Single player achievements can be done on CASUAL difficulty.
    
    I will not go into "Complete x campaign level" achievements because that's
    a Walkthrough FAQ and this is not a Walkthrough FAQ.
    
    To navigate quickly through the Guide, use the Table of Contents above and then
    Copy + Paste and search for it using your search function 
    (Ctrl + F for most Windows users)
    
    ___________________________________________________________________
    
    B) Aragorn's Undead Power move
    
    This is a move that gives Aragorn more power. He runs faster, takes less damage,
    and glows green like the Undead Army in the movie.  It can be used in single
    player and online multiplayer. This power is useful and I will tell you 
    to use it in this guide.
    
    To perform this move, you have to be Aragorn and press the following :
    
    Hold B for 7 seconds, then press X.

    How To : Choose CASUAL difficulty for "War of the Ring" the Helm's Deep level. 
    Choose the warrior and begin carving enemies.  The best move to use is LB + Y
    to perform the Whirlwind Sweep when surrounded. Always pick up the green orbs 
    of health. 
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    17) "Blade That Was Broken"

    reach the part of the level where you have to defend the front Gate. Go
    outside and find a large group of enemies coming up the ramp to the gate.

    should get it. Perform the move over and over until you run out of energy.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    18) "Blademaster"
    Kill 25 players as the warrior in any ranked match.
    
    You can combine this achievement with "A Red Sun Rises"
    
    How To : You can get this achievement in any ranked mode, but the best way is 
    to select a Ranked Team Deathmatch game. It cannot be Hero Team 
    Deathmatch. Choose the Warrior class, it cannot be a hero. It must be regular
    Warrior class.  You can play as Evil or Good, it does not make a difference.
    
    You must make the killing blow 25 times. Other players CAN weaken enemies, but
    only the person who makes the killing blow will get the credit for the kill. 
    If you combined this with "A Red Sun Rises", now you only need 5 more kills
    and you knock out two birds with one stone.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    19) "Eagle Eyes"
    Get 25 headshot kills in one life as the archer.
    
    How To : Select CASUAL difficulty for the Helm's Deep level. Choose an Archer
    and proceed to get as many headshots as you can. The bulk of your headshots 
    will come when you have to defend the Gate. Every time you get a headshot,
    it will say "Critical Hit" in red letters. Just keep doing it until you get it.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    20) "Rain of Fire"
    Kill 25 enemies in one life with the archer's fire arrows.
    
    How To : Select CASUAL difficulty for the Helm's Deep level. Choose an Archer
    and then start using your Fire arrows. Press B to load a fire arrow. You must 
    get the killing blow with the fire arrow to get credit. Keep doing it until
    you unlock this achievement.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    21) "Marksman"
    Headshot kill 10 players as the archer in any ranked match.
    
    You can combine this achievement with "A Red Sun Rises" and either/both
    "A Storm is Coming" or "Assassin"
    
    How To : You can get this achievement in any ranked mode, but the best way is 
    to select a Ranked Team Deathmatch game. It cannot be Hero Team 
    Deathmatch. Choose the Archer class, you cannot be a hero during this process. 
    You can play as Evil or Good, it does not make a difference.
    
    The killing blow must be a headshot. You will know it's a headshot when the
    words Critical Hit appears. Other players CAN weaken enemies, but
    only the person who makes the killing blow will get the credit for the kill. 
    If you combined this with "A Red Sun Rises", now you only need 20 more kills.
    You can now switch to a Mage class and get "A Storm is Coming" and then only
    need 5 more kills to complete "A Red Sun Rises" and you knock out 
    three birds with one stone.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    22) "A Knife in the Dark"
    Use the scout to backstab 10 enemies in one life.
    
    How To : Choose "War of the Ring" , select CASUAL difficulty, choose Osgiliath
    level.  Select a Scout.  In the very first part of this level, you have to
    defend enemies who jump over a wall and land among you and your NPC army.
    This is the perfect place to do this.  Press LB to go into Cloak mode, and 
    then get behind an enemy and press RB to perform the Backstab kill. Do this 
    ten times and you will earn the achievement.  If you have problems with 
    energy, just hit an enemy with a small combo a little to regain your energy so
    you can go Cloak and Backstab again.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    23) "Fire and Slaughter"
    Kill 25 enemies in one life with the scout's bombs.
    
    How to : Choose "War of the Ring" , select CASUAL difficulty, choose Osgiliath
    level.  Select a Scout.  In the very first part of this level, you have to
    defend enemies who jump over a wall and land among you and your NPC army.
    Press Right Trigger to throw your bombs. 
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    
    24) "Assassin"
    Backstab 10 players as the scout in any ranked match.
    
    You can combine this achievement with "A Red Sun Rises"
    
    How To : You can do this achievement in any ranked mode. It would be easiest 
    to do this on either Team Deathmatch or Conquest.  You have to be a regular
    scout, no hero.  You can play as Good or Evil, it makes no difference.
    
    If you want to combine this achievement with "A Red Sun Rises" , you must do 
    it on Team Deathmatch.  You will need twenty more kills after you get 
    "Assassin", so you can try and knock out "A Storm is Coming" or "Marksman"
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    25) "House of Healing"
    Heal 30 allies in one life as the mage.
    
    How To : Choose "War of the Ring", select CASUAL difficulty. Choose the 
    Osgiliath level. This is the perfect level to heal many allies without too
    much pressure on you. Press LB to heal. You can heal your army even if they
    do not have a green signal above their head. If you see anyone take damage,
    heal them and you get credit for it. Do it often when you are in large groups.
    You should get the achievement before the level is over.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    26) "Flame of Anor"
    Kill 100 enemies in one life with the mage's fire wall.
    
    How To : Choose "War of the Ring" and select CASUAL difficulty. Choose the
    Minas Tirith level.  Press B to cast Firewall. At the very start of this level,
    you have to stop the incoming enemies coming through a gate into Minas Tirith.
    This is a perfect place to spam Firewall every chance you get. You will
    get a huge chunk of the kills in that spot, then just go upstairs and get 
    the rest when you have to destroy the siege towers. Do not destroy the siege 
    towers until you get the achievement - you need the enemies to keep spawning
    in front of the siege ramps so you can get the kills.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    27) "A Storm is Coming"
    Kill 15 players with the Mage's lightning in any ranked match.
    
    You can combine this achievement with "A Red Sun Rises"
    
    How To : You can do this achievement in any ranked mode. You have to get
    the killing blow with your lightning to get credit for a kill. You cannot be
    a Mage Hero, it must be a regular Mage. You can be Good or Evil, it makes no
    difference.  
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    28) "Storm and the Lightning"
    Score the most points on the winning team in any ranked online match.
    
    You can combine this achievement with "I Will Take It" and "Rings of Power"
    
    How To : Play any ranked mode. You have to have the highest score when the
    game is over on the winning team. You should probably ignore this 
    achievement and go for "Rings of Power" and "I Will Take It" because they will
    automatically give you this achievement.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    29) "A Red Sun Rises"
    Kill 30 enemies in a ranked Team Deathmatch match.
    
    You can combine this achievement with several others. These include :
    "A Storm is Coming" "Assassin" "Blademaster" and "Marksman"
    
    How To : Exactly as it sounds. Join a ranked Team Deathmatch game.
    You can be Good or Evil. You can switch classes from Warrior-Mage-Archer-Scout,
    it doesn't matter.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    30) "Rings of Power"
    Capture 3 rings in a ranked Capture the Ring match.
    
    This achievement can be combined with "I Will Take It"
    
    How To : You must capture all 3 rings for your team in a ranked match. You can
    switch classes and even become a Hero if you like. It doesn't matter if you
    are Good or Evil. Warrior's have the fastest sprint speed and they are
    the toughest class to kill due to their high health, so they might be the 
    best choice to run the ring.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    31) "Ride to Ruin"
    Capture 10 control points in ranked Conquest match.
    
    How To : You have to be inside of the circle when your team capture's a point.
    It doesn't matter if there is other teammates in the circle, you will all get
    credit for the capture. The best strategy is to use a Scout and go around
    the map with Cloak. Just worry about capturing points and avoid fighting people.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    32) "Return of the King"
    Defeat 3 Nazgul as Aragorn in Minas Morgul ("War of the Ring" Campaign).
    
    How To : Do this one on CASUAL difficulty. When you start seeing the Nazgul,
    use Aragorn's Special move. To do it, hold B for 7 seconds, then press X.
    This should allow you to take less damage and kill a few Nazgul. Remember to use
    Aragorn's abilities and you should be able to take down the 3 Nazgul. Your NPC
    army can steal a kill from you, so make sure you get the killing blow on the
    Nazgul to get credit.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    33) "You Have My Axe"
    Kill 20 enemies with Gimli in any Team Deathmatch game.
    
    How To : You can do this by joining a Hero Team Deathmatch on 
    Mount Doom/Mines of Moria map or you can do this playing 'Instant Action'. 
    It does not have to be done online multiplayer. 
    
    If you choose to do this in 'Instant Action', then choose AI difficulty as 
    Casual and set the kill limit to 100. Select Good side, then select Gimli.
    Get twenty kills.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    34) "You Have My Bow"
    Kill 20 enemies with Legolas in any Team Deathmatch game.
    
    You can combine this achievement with "Lord of the Nine Riders"
    
    How To : You can do this one by joining a Hero Team Deathmatch online or 
    playing 'Instant Action' against AI bots.
    
    If you want to combine the achievement with "Lord of the Nine Riders", then
    join a ranked Hero Team Deathmatch online.
    
    If you choose to do this in 'Instant Action' against AI, then set AI difficulty 
    as Casual and set the kill limit to 100. Select Good side, then select
    Legolas and get twenty kills.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    35) "I Will Take It"
    Capture a ring with Frodo in a ranked Capture the Ring match.
    
    How To : This achievement is the most annoying of all. Why? Simply because
    you have to play The Shire map to be able to play as Frodo. No other map has
    Frodo for Capture The Ring. The best way to do it is capture the ring twice
    and this will almost guarantee that you get the option to play as Frodo. 
    
    If you are having trouble finding a server playing The Shire map, I have
    included a map rotation.
    
    The Shire
    Mount Doom 
    Minis Tirith Top
    Pelennor Fields
    Mines of Moria
    Rivendell 
    Minas Morgul
    (repeat)
    The Shire 
    Mount Doom
    etc...
    
    That is the order. Using that map rotation, you should be able to find a
    server in which to get to The Shire.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    36) "You Shall Not Pass!"
    Defeat the Balrog as Gandalf in the Mines of Moria ("War of the Ring" Campaign)
    
    How To : Select Casual Difficulty. Once you are allowed to play as Gandalf,
    your best bet is to play hard to get. Run away, hit the Balrog with Firewall,
    hit him with a lightning, and run away again. Don't run too far, but 
    don't let him get near you.  You can use the large pillars as a merry-go-round.
    Continue to smack the Balrog with Firewall and lightning bolts and you should
    be able to down him.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    37) "No Living Man Am I"
    Defeat the Witch King as Eowyn in Pelennor Fields ("War of the Ring" Campaign)
    
    How  To : Select Casual difficulty. The secret here is - never fight the 
    Witch-King one on one. Eowyn is basically a Scout class. She has backstab and
    cloak. Run away from the Witch-King and then cloak using LB. Try and get behind
    him and then press RB to backstab him. Sometimes the Witch-King will get
    paranoid and know that you are near him even if you are cloaked. When this 
    happens, run away. Try to wait for the Witch-King to fight some of the NPC army,
    and this is when you make your move and backstab him. Poof, one hit kill.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    38) "Lord of Mordor"
    Defeat Gandalf as Sauron in the Shire ("Rise of Sauron" Campaign).
    
    You can combine this achievement with "Stupid Hobbitses"
    
    How To : Make sure you do this on Casual difficulty. Once you are Sauron,
    you are going to want to single Gandalf out. You can either wait it out and
    wait for Gandalf's army to die out, leaving him almost alone... or you can
    go straight for Gandalf and avoid everything else. I did it this way. Combo
    on Gandalf a few times and bam, he was dead.  If you need heal, you could always
    run away to your teammates and hope the NPC Mages heal you. 
    
    The secret to killing Gandalf is to keep the pressure on him. Never let him rest
    and heal. Attack, attack, attack until he dies.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    39) "Lord of the Nine Riders"
    Kill 10 players in one life as the Witch King in any ranked match.
    
    You can combine this achievement with "You have my bow"
    
    How To : The easiest way to do this is to join a ranked Hero Team Deathmatch.
    Select Witch-King and get ten kills. Fairly simple.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    40) "Never Toss a Dwarf"
    Defeat Gimli as the Balrog in the Mines of Moria ("Rise of Sauron" Campaign)
    
    How To : Select Casual difficulty. Don't let Gimli rest. The Balrog has a 
    pound the ground attack. Use it to knock Gimli to the ground. He should die
    fairly quickly.
    
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    41) "The Way of Pain"
    Defeat Aragorn as Saruman in Weathertop ("Rise of Sauron" Campaign).
    
    How To : Select Casual difficulty. This one is a little tough because Aragorn
    has many attacks and there isn't much room to run from him. Never let Aragorn
    get near you. 
    
    There is a way to do this without taking much damage. Aragorn is at the 
    top of the mountain, in a circular ruin. You can use this ruin to your 
    advantage. Lure Aragorn outside and down the ramp. Get past him however you 
    can and go right back up the ramp. Go inside of the circular ruins. There are 
    several pillars, and you can go inbetween them. 
    
    The pillars on the side of the ramp you came up from, that's where you want
    to stand. Stand inbetween them right on the egde of the cliff, looking down
    at the ramp you just came up from. If you did it fast enough, Aragorn
    is trying to swing at you from below but he just swings at the wall.
    You want to do it so Aragorn is below you on the ramp, and you 
    are right above him on the edge looking down at him. Lightning bolt him to 
    death.

    42) "Stupid Hobbitses"
    Kill 300 hobbits in the Shire in one playthrough ("Rise of Sauron" Campaign)
    
    You can combine this achievement with "Lord of Mordor"
    
    How To : Casual difficulty. You can die as many times as you want while getting
    the required amount of hobbits. It doesn't make a difference. The fastest way
    to do this achievement is to pick the Warrior class. Press LB + Y to use the
    Whirlwind attack. This is the best way to kill many hobbits. Do not destroy the
    hobbit houses until you get the achievement. Pick the Hobbit House to the left
    of your spawn and stay there. Try to kill the Ents that come to you, they are
    really annoying, so keep an eye out for them.  The hobbits constantly spawn
    at the Hobbit Houses, so that's where you want to be most of the time. 
    Kill enough of them and you get your achievement. 
    
     I do realize that after you destroy the Hobbit Houses, eventually you are told
    to kill 50 Hobbits. Someone might say why wait and get the achievement at
    the Hobbit Houses only? The problem is you can't really keep count of how many 
    hobbits you have killed so I would just avoid destroying the Hobbit Houses 
    until you have the achievement.

    43) "Mithril Armor"
    Complete any campaign level without dying.
    
    You can combine this achievement with "Splintered Shields" and 
    "Blade That Was Broken"
    
    How To : I would recommend doing this on "War of the Ring" campaign Helm's Deep
    level. Select Casual difficulty and always pick up orbs of health.

    Complete a campaign level cooperatively.
    
    How To : Go to Multiplayer in the Menu Screen. Choose Create Private Match.
    Pick "War of the Ring" or "Rise of Sauron" and then invite your friend to
    play with you. You have to invite someone or someone has to invite you. There
    is no search for campaign function on this game.

    How To : Go to "Rise of Sauron" campaign, select Casual difficulty.

    the battles. Get in the path of one and it will grab you to unlock this 
    achievement.

    46) "That Still Only Counts as One"  - Secret Achievement
    Climb and kill an Oliphaunt.
    
    How To : Select Casual difficulty. Select "War of the Ring" campaign.
    Select Pelennor Fields.  Oliphaunts will come on this map. If you run up to
    their feet, press RB. You get a little animation of your character climbing
    up the leg of the Oliphaunt just like in the movie where Legolas does it.
    Play the mini-game button sequence to successfully kill the Oliphaunt.
