Hints

Renaming guns or masks

Enter your inventory and find a gun or mask to rename. Select the gun's or mask's name above its stats, then rename it.

Easy "Affordable Healthcare" achievement

 PC  Enter Crime.net Offline and choose any contract in which you start masked; for example, any of Hector's contracts (Watchdogs, Firestarter, Rats) or Elephant's contracts (Big Oil, Framing Frame, Election Day), any Transport Heist, or Shadow Raid. If possible, respec to have access to two medibags to speed up the process. Begin the game, place the medibag(s) on the floor, then return to the main menu and select "Restart". Repeat the process until the achievement has been earned.

Easy "Are You Kidding Me?" achievement

 PC  Play the "Train Heist" level in stealth under the Hard or higher difficulty setting. There is a chance that a Bulldozer will be hiding in one of the vaults. If you drill that vault in stealth and find a Bulldozer, he will not detect you or raise the alarm. You can then kill him with a single knife stab.

 PC  Have ECM Feedback Ace (Ghost Tier 6) and other skills that will increase your damage with melee attacks or against special units, such as Pumping Iron Ace (Enforcer Tier 2), Spotter Basic (Mastermind Tier 3), Cleaner Basic (Ghost Tier 2) and Berserker Basic (Enforcer Tier 4). Also consider having the Enforcer Tier 5 bonus (+5% damage) or the Technician Tier 4 bonus (+25% damage to headshots). Then, play any heist under the Hard or higher difficulty setting. A non stealth heist such as Transport: Park or Rats is recommended. Wait for a Green Bulldozer to spawn, then clear his surroundings. Plant an ECM, activate the feedback, and shoot him until both his faceplate and his protective glass are broken. Next, charge your melee attack (the Trautmann Knife recommended) release it, aiming at his face. Step backwards to charge a new attack and repeat the procedure until it dies. Usually two charged melee attacks will be required to complete the task.

Easy "Beaver Team" achievement

 PC  Note: This may require a respec; three players will require Aced Shaped Charges (C4). The fourth player will use the provided chainsaw. Select the Normal difficulty setting. You must get through the majority of the heist on the way to the escape. If a mistake is made, you will have to complete almost all of the heist again. Play the heist normally and select the plane escape during pre-planning. Progress until you have all four bomb parts. Make sure that the C4 players keep one charge each. Have the fourth player pick up the chainsaw next to the stack of logs when it is time to escape. When you reach the street, clear out the enemies. Take care of the trees in between assaults. The chainsaw player should take the pair of trees closest to each other. They are found on the train side of the street. Have the other three players position themselves on the three remaining trees. Precise timing is required to get all five trees down within the allotted time. Have the chainsaw player begin by cutting down one tree. The C4 players should start placing their charge just as that first tree has been cut. The chainsaw player should immediately sprint and cut down the second tree once the first one is done. It will take longer for the C4 to be planted than the saw to cut a tree. If you plant the C4 too fast or slow, you will miss the window of the first tree falling.

Easy "Becoming Infamous" achievement

 PC  Reach level 100 and select the "Infamy" option. You will need at least $200 million in your offshore bank account, and everything will be reset.

Easy "Bullet Dodger" achievement

 PC  Escape scenarios appear randomly. Do not purchase the Expert Driver asset while in the lobby, as it will prevent escape scenarios from occurring. Fail to stealth the heist or go loud to get chased by the police. You can also try to escape the heist while on assault. If you trigger an escape, more luck will be required, as Street is not a guarantee; you can end up having a Cafe or a Park escape instead. If that happens, restart the entire heist. When finally in a Street escape, hold the "Crisps Store" where you start to avoid snipers. Remain inside the storage room and wait for the chopper to arrive, either on the store's roof or in the adjacent building's roof. When it appears, open the back door and run to the chopper. You do not need to bring your loot bags. Make sure no one on your team kills any snipers. The chances to get an escape are as follows. Killing civilians increases the chance by 5% per civilian.

Bank heists: 15% chance on gold and cash, 5% else. Possible escapes: Cafe, Park, Street.
Jewelry Store: Normal 25%, hard 27%, very hard 32%, overkill and death wish 36%
Four Stores: 30% Possible escapes: Cafe, Park, Street
Diamond Store: 10%. Possible escapes: Cafe, Park, Street
Nightclub: 25%. Possible escapes: Cafe, Overpass, Garage, Park
Ukrainian Job: Normal 30%, hard 33%, very hard 35%, overkill and death wish 37%
Framing Frame day 1: 25% chance. Possible escapes: Cafe, Park
Framing Frame day 2: 24% chance. Possible escapes: Overpass, Park
Transport Downtown: 10% chance. Possible escapes: Cafe, Park
Transport Underpass: 10% chance. Possible escapes: Park, Street

Easy "Clay Pigeon Shooting" achievement

 PC  Use a shotgun with equipped flechette ammunition. The ammo can be found in the modding menu of any shotgun. Play the "Night Club" mission under the normal difficulty setting with a friend. Camp in the room upstairs behind the DJ table, as snipers will spawn in the house on the other side. The police will come through the windows occasionally. When you hear an announcement about snipers, be ready to shoot them quickly.

 PC  Play the Hotline Miami DLC under the Overkill difficulty setting. There are up to seven snipers that spawn around the Kommisar's vault, and they re-appear quickly. The ones that spawn behind the door that you open with three C4s respawn faster than the rest. Additionally, the snipers are relatively close compared to other heists, making them easier to hit them with Flechette ammo.

Easy "Dead Presents" achievement

Complete the heist in stealth mode because triggering the alarm makes it impossible to bag any corpses. Purchase the Body Bags asset in the pre-game lobby if you are playing solo. After assaulting the bank, destroying the cameras, killing the guards, answering the pagers and pacifying the civilians, bag two guards and two random civilians. Place the body bags under the Christmas tree at the front of the vault or behind the teller.

Easy "Disco Inferno" achievement

 PC  Use a team on Rats OVK. Camp at the basement after setting the house on fire. The assault waves will eventually become large enough for you to burn ten enemies simultaneously. Note: Instead of letting them flood inside, run out to burn the rest after burning four or five enemies inside.

Easy "Fifth Nightmare" achievement

 PC  Complete the Safe House Nightmare in Deathwish difficulty. The Safe House Nightmare is only available during the Halloween Event. The Titandozers spawn rate is very fast, and its KSP damage output is extremely dangerous. To do this safely, use the fact that Titandozers only shoot at you if you have them in your field of view. Only Cloakers can kill you if you do not pay attention to them. Note: Cloakers will not attack if you are playing solo, with no human or CPU players. Start the drill, remain in a corner near by, look down at your feet and only look up when a Cloaker gets near. For safety, bring two fully evolved ECMs with feedback that are activated when dealing with Cloakers. Your objective is to drill the vault and get the four money bags of money. Ignore the safes in the side room. After the vault has been drilled, have each player collect a bag then go to the ground floor. Secure the loot then escape to complete the heist.

Easy "First Nightmare" achievement

 PC  You must find all four "baby" masks on the ground floor of the Safe House Nightmare under the Normal difficulty setting. The Safe House Nightmare is only available during the Halloween Event. Your objective is to drill the vault and get the four money bags of money. Ignore the safes in the side room. The Headless Bulldozers are not a serious threat as only one spawns approximately every minute and is fairly easy to kill with a Thanatos .50 cal. After the vault has been drilled, have each player collect a bag then go to the ground floor. Secure the loot then search for the baby masks. The Titandozers cannot follow you but Cloakers can.

Easy "Fourth Nightmare" achievement

 PC  You must find all four "baby" masks on the ground floor of the Safe House Nightmare under the Overkill difficulty setting. The Safe House Nightmare is only available during the Halloween Event. The Titandozers spawn rate is very fast, and its KSP damage output is extremely dangerous. To do this safely, use the fact that Titandozers only shoot at you if you have them in your field of view. Only Cloakers can kill you if you do not pay attention to them. Note: Cloakers will not attack if you are playing solo, with no human or CPU players. Start the drill, remain in a corner near by, look down at your feet and only look up when a Cloaker gets near. For safety, bring two fully evolved ECMs with feedback that are activated when dealing with Cloakers. Your objective is to drill the vault and get the four money bags of money. Ignore the safes in the side room. After the vault has been drilled, have each player collect a bag then go to the ground floor. Secure the loot then search for the baby masks. The Titandozers cannot follow you but Cloakers can.

Easy "Gone in 240 Seconds" achievement

 PC  Start the heist under the normal difficulty setting. Have two or three players camp at the computer rooms on both floors. Have a player rush the manager's office on the second floor. Break the window instead of going for the card. While inside the office, look at the whiteboard and type out the full name to your partners. Hack the correct computer, using the nameplates on the side of the cubicle to find it. While hacking, place the C4 at the designated location. You can place it before the hack is finished if it gets loud too early. The speed of the hacking will determine your success. When the hack finishes, the storage room will open if the C4 has been placed. Note: the C4 will not explode if someone is still outside the building. Collect the keys and enter a car to drive to designated area. Have one player drive while the suicide after the car begins to move so that they do not bump into each other in the road. While driving the car there will be four moderate turns. Be careful when turning, without decelerating too much. You should be able to make the trip in four minutes. When you reach the end area, park the car into the container and then press F to exit. Escape in the van parked beside the containers.

Easy "Hammertime" achievement

 PC  Mobsters encountered in the Hotline Miami will not count. Qualifying thugs can only be found in the following maps:

"Rats": Days 1 to 3 (Mendoza) and Day 2 (Cobras)
"Firestarter": Day 1 (Mendoza)
"Big Oil": Day 1 (Overkill MC and Cobras in case of a drug deal)
"Nightclub": Dmitri's Russian Mafia

Because of the high amount of damage thugs can inflict, invest in the Brother's Keeper (Ace, Fugitive Tier 3) skill. Play solo in Nightclub under the normal difficulty setting. Mask immediately when in front of the club and then kill all thugs inside. When the first police assault is starts, restart the map. Thugs will no longer spawn after the police arrive.

Easy "I Am the One Who Knocks" achievement

 PC  Having three other players and playing under the Normal difficulty setting is recommended. Always stay outside the house to keep the police focused on you and not try to enter it. Have one player with two Medibags, another player with two Ammobags, another player with two Turrets and the last player with six Trip Mines. Place the mines, turrets and barricades at strategic locations outside the house to keep the police out. Listen carefully to Bain, as he will tell you which ingredient to add for the recipe and indicate where the police will spawn (either the lumber mill, railway bridge or forest next to the road). He will also warn you if the police are climbing the walls or a helicopter is dropping them onto the balcony. To defend the balcony, a player must sprint to the second floor. The heist must be restarted if he says that a cop has successfully entered the house. When cooking begins, have each player cooks one bag. During the cooking process, you and your allies will still have to defend the exterior the house. Only go inside when the next ingredient is known. To learn which ingredient to add, listen carefully to Bain's instructions.

The correct ingredient is Muriatic Acid if he says one of the following lines.
  • Add Muriatic Acid to continue the process !
  • Acid, guys, Acid. Get some and pour it in there.
  • Ah, OK... Muria, Muriatic Acid. Add more.
  • Cooking away fine - needs more Acid though.
  • Hm, yeah it is not Caustic Soda... Yeah. It should be Acid. Yep, sure that is it.
  • I'm 100% it is Muriatic Acid now. Just add it.
  • Looking at this site... Says Acid is used in this step... We got Muriatic, right?
  • Mu... Muriatic Acid - we need some more in there.
  • OK, so add caustic... No, wait, add acid - Muriatic Acid.
The correct ingredient is Caustic Soda if he says one of the following lines.
  • Add Caustic Soda to continue the process !
  • Caustic basic reaction is now added. OK you got any Soda around? Add it.
  • Caustic chloride. Says it is liquid form... Wait a minute... Should be Soda, right?
  • Caustic Soda - yep, that's it. Go for it.
  • I'm 100% it is some Caustic Soda needed here. Drop some in.
  • It needs hydrogen chloride, for sure... OK wait, Soda... Yeah, Caustic Soda!
  • Says we need club Soda to get this temperature up... Sounds odd. What can you get?
  • Try Caustic Soda....Or hydrogen... No no, wait, Soda... Go for that. Yeah.
  • I'm just guessing at this point... These internet descriptions are iffy.
The correct ingredient is Hydrogen Chloride if Bain says one of the following lines.
  • Add Hydrogen Chloride to continue the process !
  • Caustic Chloride. Says it is some solid form... Wait a... Should be that Hydrogen, right?
  • Hydrogen... Is that a gas... Can't be a solid... Says add it. You guys got a gas tank?
  • I'm not 100% but I think it is Hydrogen Chloride now. Yep, should be.
  • It needs Hydrogen Chloride - for sure.
  • It needs Hydrogen Chloride, for sure... No, no wait... Yeah, OK.
  • F*ck me, we needed those cooks. I'm going with Chloride.
  • F*ck me, we needed those cooks. I'm going with Hydrogen.
  • F*ck me, we needed those damn cooks. I'm going with Caustic Soda.
  • This site says something else... Chloride Soda Hydrogen mix. I don't know, go for it - something.

Once the bag is done cooking, bring it with you and drop it anywhere outside the house to distract the police. You will earn the achievement or trophy as soon as the third bag is done cooking.

Easy "I Do What I Do Best, I Take Scores" achievement

 PC  You do not need the DLC unless you have to host the Armored Transport heists. You do not need to complete the same heist fifteen times. You just need to complete them under the Overkill or Death Wish difficulty settings (Downtown, Crossroad, Park, Harbor or Underpass). Additionally, you do not need to be present at the start of the heist. Joining a few seconds before completion will also count towards your total.

Easy "I Will Pass Through Walls" achievement

 PC  You must complete the entire heist without killing anyone after securing at least six bags. Choose the normal or hard difficulty setting. Travel through the sewers and enter the warehouse from the inner manhole. You will usually find at least one bag of weapons and one or two bags of cocaine in the very first room. Another bag of cocaine can be found in the locker room. There is usually at least one bag of money either in the kitchen or both offices. You can find a crowbar on a crate, immediately next to the locker room exit when entering the main storage area to use to open crates. You should be able to find any remaining bags in that area. Chain ECMs to gain the maximum amount of time to find and secure the bags. If stealth fails, you still have a total of five minutes to secure the bags and escape after detection if everyone in your team has two 30 second ECMs (requires at least ECM Specialist Aced and ECM Overdrive Basic).

Easy "I Will Take With Impunity" achievement

 PC  Earning "I Will Take With Impunity" relies on a lot of luck due to the randomness of the loot spawning. Select the normal difficulty setting. It also can be attempted solo. The loot can be found randomly at the following locations.

  • Money: Four bags of loot are always hidden inside the red containers in the courtyard. Money bags can also be found in the office, in the kitchen, and/or in crates in the warehouse.
  • Gold: Can only be found in crates inside the warehouse.
  • Cocaine: Plentiful; found inside the warehouse (both floors, locker room, basement), inside or outside crates.
  • Artifact: At the five minute mark, have a player in your team standing on the "H" of the helipad until the helicopter spawns. This forces the game to spawn a chopper transporting a container with an artifact, which will be dropped in the middle of the courtyard. Other artifacts can be found inside crates in the warehouse.
  • Painting: In the room down the stairs leading to the roof, look in one of the locked storage boxes or on the left of the main storage area near the stairs.
  • Weapons: Plentiful; found on the first and second floors of the warehouse.
  • Server: Located either in the camera room, in the room behind the stairs leading to the roof, on the second floor of the warehouse.

Easy "I Will Walk Faceless Among Men" achievement

The four pieces of the samurai armor are in the vault inside the warehouse. To open it, two keycards must be used in less than ten seconds on the readers on either side of the door. Failure to do so will lock the vault permanently. Up to four keycards spawn on the map, at the following locations. The higher the difficulty, the less keycards will spawn.

  • Held by the guard watching the camera. Killing this guard will also disable cameras.
  • Held by the only worker with a orange suit and yellow hardhat.
  • Held by a random patrolling Murkywater mercenary.
  • Appear in one of the locker rooms, the kitchen, or offices on the ground level.

Once the vault is opened, secure the pieces immediately, as mercenaries (and cameras if not previously disabled) will be alerted. You may want to wait until all other loot in the warehouse is secured before opening the vault. This can also be completed solo. Collect the keycard from the camera guard and wait for the yellow helmeted worker to enter the warehouse. Hwill regularly takes a break at the location between the trucks and the stairs. Once he is inside and away from a guard's sight, kill him, bag the corpse, and throw the body bag in the sewers. When clear, insert your keycard in the left side reader, run to where you killed the worker, collect the keycard, then run back to the vault and use it on the right side reader.

Easy "Impossible, It Can't Be. Is It?" achievement

 PC  During the "White Xmas" job, there will be many gifts scattered on the ground. Open them to get jewelry, cocaine, teddy bears, and possibly the Almir toast. Because of the random number generator, the toast may not spawn in any of the gifts. If this is the case, restart the level. After getting the toast, take it to the helicopter to escape at the end of the heist. Throw the bag inside the helicopter before moving to the escape area that completes the heist. The toast is heavy and will make you stagger frequently. Note: If you get the toast at the start of the heist, drop her in a secure location and pick her later at the end. Note: If you do not get the toast from the gifts, during the time waiting for the helicopter to rescue you, some gifts will drop from the sky. Also check them for a chance for toast.

Easy "King of the Hill" achievement

 PC  After the Nightclub heist, when the Park Escape starts, remain at the van and begin moving after the new van appears. No one should have a reason to walk through the park.

 PC  Park Escape is rare and may be triggered after Trustee Bank, Nightclub, Jewelry Store, Ukrainian Job, Diamond Store, Four Stores, Framing Frame (Day 1 or Day 2), Transport: Underpass, and Transport: Downtown. Killing civilians adds a 5% chance to trigger an escape. Leaving during an assault will also increase the chances. Because there are a lot of civilianss in Downtown, consider using that heist to farm. Play under the normal difficulty and restart the escape until the escape van arrives. Turrets or C4 near the park entryways may help. Also try staying in a corner far away from the park.

 PC  Chances to get an escape are as follows. Killing civilians increases the chance by 5% per civilian.

Bank heists: 15% chance on gold and cash, 5% else. Possible escapes: Cafe, Park, Street.
Jewelry Store: Normal 25%, hard 27%, very hard 32%, overkill and death wish 36%
Four Stores: 30% Possible escapes: Cafe, Park, Street
Diamond Store: 10%. Possible escapes: Cafe, Park, Street
Nightclub: 25%. Possible escapes: Cafe, Overpass, Garage, Park
Ukrainian Job: Normal 30%, hard 33%, very hard 35%, overkill and death wish 37%
Framing Frame day 1: 25% chance. Possible escapes: Cafe, Park
Framing Frame day 2: 24% chance. Possible escapes: Overpass, Park
Transport Downtown: 10% chance. Possible escapes: Cafe, Park
Transport Underpass: 10% chance. Possible escapes: Park, Street

Easy "Knockout!" achievement

 PC  Break a Bulldozer's faceplate. You can also shoot a few extra bullets into his face, but be careful to not do too much damage. Then drop an ECM with feedback to stun the Bulldozer while you hit him with the gloves. This is easier to do with teammates who also have ECM feedback, as you can keep the dozer stunned for a longer period of time. If you cannot kill him while the feedback is active, remain close and strafe constantly. If you get too close, the Bulldozer will not shoot and will try to melee, however you can avoid the melee attacks by circle strafing around to their rear. Consider doing this in Hoxton Breakout Day 1 under the very hard difficulty setting. Fight the Bulldozer behind the locked door in the parking garage. He will always spawn and there will not be too many other enemies around.

Easy "The Man With the Golden Gun" achievement

 PC  Start a bank heist under Death Wish difficulty setting. Purchase the Vantage Point asset. Shoot the Skulldozer that is dropped on the bank roof by a helicopter.

 PC   Reach Day 2 of Watchdogs on DW with the help of some friends. A Skulldozer usually spawns at the start, guarding the bags along with four shields. Restart the day to keep farming the kills.

Easy "Not Invited" achievement

 PC  Play Firestarter OVK. The amount of enemies should be sufficient, as you can hit two or three per shot. You cannot miss because of the long reload time. You can sometimes find a line of thugs outside a hangar that are set up for a good shot. To complete the ten kills, toss a few grenades into the back of open warehouses.

Easy "Nothing Out of the Ordinary" achievement

 PC  Solo this on DW Diamond Store. Get the Basic ECM Specialist to allow you not to delay pagers but block calls. Begin by walking towards the cam room, from the side. Destroy the camera outside. Lockpick the cam room's door for easy access later in the heist. Wait approximately a minute for both civilians to pass by then hide or move them near the dumpster at the back of the building. Kill the first guard that inspects the broken camera then answer his pager. Immediately kill the cam guard and answer his pager. Rush to the front of the store. ECM before enter in order to block phone calls while answering the next pager. Kill the closest available guard after you enter from the front and answer his pager. ECM just before you rush to the next guard. Kill him, then answer his pager. He should be found near the manager's office if he was not in the front of the store.

 PC  Play the Shadow Raid Death Wish. There will be many guards outside. Shoot a guard and answer his pager, then repeat as many times as needed. If more than one guard notices, use a ECM.

Easy "OVE SAW 72000" achievement

 PC  Have the Portable Saw skill in the Enforcer tree (tier 5) to have it as your primary weapon slot. To unlock it for your secondary weapon slot, have Carbon Blade ACED (tier 6). Note: Also consider investing in Pumping Iron. Start Nightclub on Normal Offline with AI partners disabled. Because both saws combined will decrease concealment significantly, do not worry about being in stealth. Equip your best armor and shaped charges if available. First aid kits are also fine. You will also require a decent melee weapon with good knock down, such as the baseball bat or flag pole. Go in loud and quickly get to the back. With luck, the only security door will be the one leading to the manager's office. Saw open the door then immediately start working on the safe. If you have shaped charges, use of them to try to complete the mission as fast as possible. Without shaped charges, use regular drills. When the cops swarm, do not deliberately expose yourself to fight them. However, check to see if the other upstairs office is there. If it is, also saw open that door and work on the safe. If it is not there, return to the manager's office and wait. You should be able quickly kill any cops that get up here. The only real threat will be snipers, however you should have enough cover between the windows. Once getting the money, do not get too greedy with any other safes. When the van arrives, rush out.

Easy "Pink Slip" achievement

 PC  Select the Car Shop heist. Follow the heist instructions. When the storage room is opened, take a set of keys, go to a car, unlock the car, then enter it.

Easy "Shotgun 101" achievement

 PC  Play "Mallcrasher" and do not use your weapons to destroy the mall. Because enemies will appear in tight corridors, it will be easier to make more than two kills with each bullet, which is needed to increase your accuracy past 100%. Even if you miss one or two shots, continue hitting multiple enemies with one bullet alone to compensate.

 PC   Using any weapon other than shotguns disqualify you. Even throwing a grenade or performing a melee attack (even with a weapon butt from a shotgun) will be a disqualification. Use a build that wields shotguns as both primary and secondary weapons. For your primary weapon, equip the M1014 with HE Rounds. The Shark Teeth Nozzle mod is recommended. HE rounds have a relatively large area of effect, allowing you to quickly regain accuracy in the event of a missed shot. HE rounds are also very efficient with the M1014's fast rate of fire. Use this combination to stagger enemies (including Bulldogs). Note: The Gage Shotgun Pack will be required. As your secondary weapon, use the Locomotive 12G with standard ammo and the Shark Teeth Nozzle, Military Laser Module, Rubber Grip, Extented Mag, Police Shorty Stock and Shell Rack mods. This will be the main weapon used to kill enemies, while the M1014 is used to increase accuracy). Select any map that has tight spaces, such as Rats Day 1, Election Day plan C, Hoxton Breakout Day 2, Hotline Miami Day 2 or any Bank Heist. When playing, start by getting one or two multi-hits with the HE Shotgun before switching to the Locomotive. Regularly swap back to the M1014 to keep your accuracy high, especially after missed shots.

Easy "Murphy's Law" achievement

 PC  Note: Luck is an important factor in earning this achievement. On Day 1, place the GPS tracker on a truck that has the same company name as another one. To get to where the trucks are parked, chain together ECMs. You now access to the "Plan C", where you must hack the server, plant C4 next to the voting machines, and drill the vault in the bank. To earn the achievement the vault must be empty, which occurs randomly. Repeat the process if this is not the case. The achievement will be earned when a player enters the empty vault.

Easy "No Heist for Old Men" achievement

 PC  The shotgun silencer "The Silent Killer" is a random card drop weapon mod. You can try farming it on "Jewelry Store" under the normal difficulty setting. Carrying one or two ECMs, rush the store, collect three jewelry bags, and run out in less than a minute. Once obtained, equip the silencer on a Locomotive 12G (secondary shotgun). Complete a stealth heist such as "Jewelry Store" again, under the normal difficulty setting. Complete the stealth without triggering any alarms with the shotgun equipped.

Your objective is to drill the vault and get the four money bags of money. Ignore the safes in the side room. The Headless Bulldozers are not a serious threat as only one spawns approximately every 40 seconds and is fairly easy to kill with a Thanatos .50 cal. After the vault has been drilled, have each player collect a bag then go to the ground floor. Secure the loot then search for the baby masks. The Titandozers cannot follow you but Cloakers can.

Easy "Seven Eleven" achievement

 PC  Headshots with shotguns fired by anyone will qualify. Select Rats Day 2 with the maximum number of players. Cook at least three bags of meth on day one. When doing the deal, have one player remain next to the pickup truck (six targets), another at the entrance of the building where the deal happens (two targets), a third player directly outside the apartment (two targets), and the fourth player enter the apartment and take the intel (between three and five targets). Once taken and everyone is ready, shoot the targets. Your team should be able to get the seven headshots quickly if they all are firing shotguns.

Easy "Shock and Awe" achievement

 PC  Immediately after spawning in "Rats - Day 3", run in the bus and fire your shotgun with HE rounds to kill the Mendozas. Because the Mendozas are very close to each other, it should be easy to get four simultaneous kills.

Easy "So Uncivilized" achievement

 PC  Equip both weapon mods on the pistol. To unlock the weapon mods, earn "Special Operations Execution".

Easy "Special Operations Execution" achievement

 PC  Enter the Shadow Raid heist and sneak into the fenced-in area. Begin stabbing all of the guards to kill them with one hit. The stealth will not end until the police arrive. Consider using ECMs to get more time.

Easy "Storage Hunter" achievement

 PC  Tag the correct truck on Day 1 and get the mission where you have to hack the voting machines. The six storage bins are located in the cages in the left and right halls. They can be opened via keycard or by drilling or sawing the doors. To complete this without stealth, hack the voting machines, open the cages, regroup the six money bags, erase the video recording, and escape. To complete this with stealth,kill the camera operator and the two guards patrolling the upper level. Then, open the shipping crates and hack the four voting machines. If the cages must be opened to check the crates inside, only open those that also contain storage bins because you only have four keycards. Because there are only six storage bins and cages can contain up to three of them at the same time, you probably will not have to use the drill to locate the others. However, if that happens, complete the hacking objective and secure the money bags you already first. If you irremediably detected, chain ECMs together to get enough time to steal and secure the remaining bags. Complete Day 2 to earn the achievement.

Easy "Swing Dancing" achievement

 PC  Using any other weapon other than your melee weapon will disqualify you. Saws are not considered melee weapons. Select the "Nightclub" map for its size and narrow corridors. Select the normal difficult setting, and have a friend assist you by eliminating snipers and softening enemies for you to finish off. Do not use CPU allies, as they will steal your kills. Have your character have Pumping Iron Ace (Enforcer, Tier 2) and Martial Arts Ace (Ghost Tier 3). You can also consider having Berzerker Basic. Use a fast good damage weapon, such as the URSA Tanto Knife, Nova's Shank, the butt of the Nagant with a Nagant Bayonet, Survival Tomahawk, Fire Axe, or Spear Of Freedom.

Easy "Third Nightmare" achievement

 PC  You must find all four "baby" masks on the ground floor of the Safe House Nightmare under the Very Hard difficulty setting. The Safe House Nightmare is only available during the Halloween Event.
