Easy "Clusterluck" achievement

  • Play Act 1 under the Casual difficulty setting. Play the very first chapter "14 Days after E-day" until reaching the part where you are about to go outside for the second time. This is when the Locusts are about to break open the door. Run to the door that is not in front of them or you will die. Make sure you have frag grenades equipped. When they break open the door, stick the very first Locust that comes through the door then stand in front of him so he cannot run away. When the grenade explodes it should kill all three of the Locusts and you might survive. If you survived make sure that you killed all three of them then pause game play. Load the last checkpoint and do this ten times. You do not have to survive while trying to get this achievement.
  • Play the "Evolution" section of Chapter 3. After you rescue the stranded, you will reach a point where you must cross wooden floor boards that may fall away. Cross all the way to the other side where the respawning grenades are located. Standing just at the edge of the planks, wait until a few wretches gather underneath. Then, toss a grenade in the middle of the group. Refill your grenades as needed. To make it even easier, do this is co-op mode and have your partner stand on the planks looking down into the pit.

Easy "Dish Best Served Cold" achievement

Start playing Co-op mode with a friend. Have him stand to the left side of the pipes just ahead of where you are and take cover. Have him shoot RAAM to get his attention. When Dom goes down and RAAM starts to come after you, he should be moving towards Dom. If done correctly, he should get stuck on Dom and not be able to move or send his Kryll out to attack you. You can now defeat him easily and earn the "Dish Best Served Cold" achievement. This is extremely difficult to execute and should not be attempted in Single Player mode.

Easy achievements

  • Instead of completing the game three times, just play it under the Insane difficulty to get all three achievements for each act, completing the game, the Broken Fingers, and A Dish Best Served Cold all at the same time.
  • When playing online, search for a one round Warzone game with a round length of 1 minute. This is called an achievement match. You get free kills towards your achievements. Each played takes a turn. One person from each team will go to the opposite side of the map while his teammates stand behind and wait for a person from the other team to come over to them. The one player from the other team kills everyone, except for the one person who is killing on the other team. The other players should stand there and let him kill them any way desired. If you swing your smoke grenade or throw it, the person will down your teammates and you can revive them, so you can get your revive achievement. When there is only one person on each team remaining, wait for the time to run out so you can start again, with another person on your team turn taking their turn to earn the achievements.

Easy achievement points for Co-Op mode

When starting a Co-Op campaign, instead of logging into your main Gamertag as player one, log in as player two. Doing this from the beginning or while replaying chapters will let you play as Dominic Santiago. There are several achievements that you will unlock playing as him. Also if you start as Dominic from the beginning, you will not gain any less points then you would as the main character and it will save you a lot of time.

Navigating the Rotten Wood room

Refer to this map of the "Rotten Wood" room in Act 3. This is an annoying part of the level for first time players because there is no way to identify rotten wood and is thus time consuming. The map should provide a clear path of safety, however it is not to scale. It also provides the location of the COG tags located in the room.

Easy Xbox Live kills

  • When playing on Xbox Live have a boomshot and a sniper ready. When your enemy is taking cover fire two boomshot bullets as fast as you can. They will think you are out of ammunition. Take out the sniper and aim at their position. As soon as they come out, get a head shot.
  • When a player is teasing you by ducking up and down behind cover, time his ups and downs. Just before he ducks, shoot but do not hit him. He will then come up again. Immediately blast him.
  • Put away all your guns and say that you have nothing remaining. Most of the time they will come for you, but have a sniper ready. Try to spot him and shoot him in the head.
  • "Roadie Run" directly at your opponent with your shotgun. When you get close (a few feet away), release A and immediately shoot. You can get some easy kills by doing this. It works best if you sneak up on your enemy from behind.
  • On any small multi-player map like Mansion, to know where the enemies are located, go inside the door and throw a smoke. Other peoples may say something like "Incoming smoke!" and you will now know that the enemies are near.

"About face" maneuver

This type of move is done when your character whips around 180 degrees quickly. To do it, hold Analog-stick Away to start walking backwards + A for a short time. Release A when your character turns around to perform it. To avoid frag grenades or retreat somewhere fast, keep holding A and Marcus will "Roadie Run" in the opposite direction.

Two player path block

Use the following trick while playing in two player mode and you reach a difficult part with a doorway. Have one player die in the doorway. This creates a block that the Locust cannot get past. They will usually line up behind your dead partner, allowing you a safe zone to easily pick off the queued up enemy. Once it is clear, just revive your friend and move on.

Multiplayer execution moves

Do not perform an execution move (or curb stomp) during any multi-player mode. You are only exposing yourself to enemy fire power.

Spinning kill

When close to a downed enemy, take out your chainsaw and hold the Right Analog-stick Right or Left. This will make you spin while you slice them in half.

Chainsaw rev

  • When you have the chainsaw activated, hold B and tap RT. This should make the chainsaw emit a loud grinding sound.
  • When you are in melee combat hold B and tap RT to rip through your opponent.
