    I. The Achievements
    -------------------
    Perfect Dark for the Xbox Live Arcade has 20 achievements worth 200 
    gamerscore.  To aquire this game, you must have Xbox Live.  Gold or
    Silver membership.  This game currently costs 800 Microsoft points.
    
    
    A. How's That For Starters?
      - Complete dataDyne Central - Defection.  10G
      - You have to complete the first level of the game on any
        difficulty.  If you want this fast, just play the level on
        Agent.  The only objective is to get to the elevator leading
        to the underground lab.  As soon as you start jump down off
        the helipad.  Shoot the guard and enter the building.  Shoot 
        the guards until you get to the main office floor with
        Cassandra's office on it.  Hit A on the elevator to the left 
        of her office.  Now just stay in it until it takes you to
        ground floor.  Get off the elevator and kill enemies.  Make
        your way to the door on your left while heading down the
        stairs.  Go through and kill the enemies and make your way
        around the wall on the right.  Now head straight and a wall
        should open up to show the hidden elevator.  Enter and this
        is yours.
    
    
    B. Both Barrels
      - Kill an enemy when dual-wielding  5G
      - This can be done on any difficulty in Solo, Co Op or even
        the combat simulator.  Only small guns can be dual wielded.
        On the first level, you can get dual silenced falcon pistols.
        Once you get into the building, make your way down to the 
        third floor of offices.  You will run into a guard that is
        wearing a mask.  He is using dual falcons.  Kill him and
        pick them up.  Now just kill an enemy while holding both
        pistols.
    
    
    C. Act Your Age, Joanna
      - Destroy Carrington's wine collection.  5G
      - This is done on level 4, Carrington's Villa.  As soon as
        you enter the basement of Carrington's house, you will
        first have to cut on the Wind Generator.  Once that is
        done, you will enter a room with a lot of bottles on
        shelves.  You must destroy every single bottle.  There
        are a few shelves with bottles on them.  Try to destroy
        all bottles as you come to them because if you go to
        far, the level will end.  The achievement will unlock as
        soon as all bottles are destroyed.
    
    
    D. Double 64
      - Kill 128 enemies using secondary fire mode.  10G
      - To change to your secondary function, press Right Bumper.
        The secondary function will show a yellow box down in the
        lower right corner of the screen.  Easiest to do with the
        Cmp150.  The secondary function allows you to lock on to
        enemies by aiming at them with Left Trigger.  This doesn't
        have to be done with just one gun.  Accumalates amongst
        all guns.
    
    
    E. Camera Shy
      - Destroy 5 security cameras.  10G
      - Depending on difficulty depends on the number of cameras
        on a level.  Level 1 will have I think 3 cameras if you
        are playing on Perfect Agent.  You must destroy different
        cameras.  Each camera only counts once.  So if you shoot
        the three cameras on level 1 and then shoot 2 others on
        a different level, this will unlock.  You just can't 
        repeat the same level and destroy the same cameras because
        that doesn't count.
    
    
    F. Deadly Laptop
      - Kill 50 enemies using the laptop in sentry gun mode. 10G
      - To put a laptop gun in sentry gun mode, you must hit the
        Right Bumper and then throw the gun with the Right Trigger.
        You will get your first laptop gun on Carringtons Villa
        if playing on Perfect Agent.  YOu also start with one on 
        Mission 6.1.  There is also a secret one located on level
        1 on Perfect Agent.  YOu have to get the hacker to unlock a 
        door beside the elevators to get it.  This can also be done
        in the combat simulator once you have unlocked the Laptop
        gun in single player.  Start a big game on Felicity against
        8 Peace sims with nothing but Laptop guns on.  Now just
        deploy 1 gun at a time because deploying another will destroy
        you other one.  Laptop guns only have 50 bullets in them
        before running out.
    
    
    G. Paci-Fist
      - Complete any Solo Mission on Special Agent or harder using 
        only your fists.  10G
      - This is easiest done on Mission 1.  As soon as you start
        put away your falcon and make your way down the helipad.
        Set your fists to disarm and disarm all guards that seem to 
        be a threat.  This way they can't shoot you without their
        gun.  throw the ECM Mine on the computer as soon as you 
        enter the building.  Then make your way to Cassandra's
        Office and punch her to knock her out.  Then jump on an
        elevator.  Get down to ground floor and make your way down
        the stairs and go in the room on the right.  Throw an ECM
        Mine on the wall mounted computer on the left of the standing
        computer screens.  Now make your way back out and into the
        room that was on the left and get to the elevator.  Make
        take a try or two to get down.  You can't shoot anyone, you
        can kill with your fists though.
    
    
    H. Tools Of The Trade
      - Get a Bronze rating or better with all 32 weapons in the 
        Firing Range.  10G
      - First off you have to unlock all 32 weapons in the campaign.
        Play through the game on at least agent and try and use 
        every weapon you find.  Might as well go ahead and kill
        with everything to work on the specialist achievements as
        well.  Once you have completed the game and feel you have
        found all guns, in the main area when not in a mission. 
        exit the room with the mission computer and make your way
        to the elevator.  Go down to the first floor and go left.
        The targeting range is the first door on the right.  
        Getting at least bronze for each weapon is really simple.
        It doesn't get bad unless you are going to gold on each
        mission.  Just aim for bulls eyes because they are worth
        10 points a piece.  For explosives, you need to destroy
        targets, points aren't really a factor in those.
