Crackdown achievement guide continued from previous page...
Orb Hunter - 50 gamerscore points.
Collect 300 Hidden Orbs.
Tip: While the hidden orbs are easier to locate than some of the agility orbs, mainly because of their louder sound, it can be a daunting task, especially given the off the beaten path location of some of them. If you need hints and tips for locating them all then see the Crackdown Orbs Hints and Tips page.
Over Our Heads - 30 gamerscore points.
Successfully complete all 12 Rooftop Races.
Tip: These rooftop races can be a challenge, even if your agility rating is 4. The best tip I have is to look at the map to see where the next marker is located, and time your jumps carefully. If you end up screwing a jump up badly, then just restart the race, chances are you won't recover well enough to complete it in the allowed time. Once you have all 12 completed you will get the Over Our Heads achievement.
Rampage - 20 gamerscore points.
Wreak havoc in 60-second increments.
Tip: The Rampage achievement needs a bit of an explanation, since the description doesn't really say a whole lot. Here is what you will need to do to get it, all of these need to be done within 60 seconds (for each one, not all of them together). Kill 15 gang members with your hands or objects within 60 seconds, blow up 25 gang controlled vehicles within 60 seconds, shoot and kill 15 gang members within 60 seconds, use explosives to kill 15 gang members within 60 seconds, use a vehicle to kill 10 gang members in 60 seconds, and pop 20 tires on gang controlled vehicles in 60 seconds. Most of these sub-achievements can be earned pretty quickly once the game has been completed and you can turn crimes on, since there are more groups of gangs members at this point located in areas where there are not many pedestrians. Also, when they speak about gang controlled vehicles they do not have to have an enemy in them, as long as they have the gang's icon over them they are considered to be gang controlled. .
Repo Man - 10 gamerscore points.
Commandeer 100 gang-controlled vehicles.
Tip: To get the Repo Man achievement all you need to do is carjack 100 gang controlled vehicles. If you don't have this before the game is complete, turn crimes on and get it done.
Ring Leader - 20 gamerscore points.
Drive through all of the unique Stunt Markers.
Tip: The Ring Leader achievement will be granted once you complete all the stunt markers within the game. These can be a challenge and there aren't many tips without going into specific details. Early on you can have a leveled-up partner throw you (while you are in a vehicle) through some of the markers to get some of them done quickly and easily.
Road Warrior - 30 gamerscore points.
Successfully complete all 14 Road Races.
Tip: The Road Warrior achievement is earned when you complete all 14 of the road races with the target time. This is much easier to do once you are level 4 driving and are using an agency vehicle, either the Agency Supercar or the Agency SUV. Just watch the map, especially when nearing a corner to see where the upcoming marker is, and be careful not to go off the road. If you are near the end of the race, it is sometimes quicker to just finish the race on foot.
Roadkill King - 15 gamerscore points.
Mow down and massacre 175 gang members while driving.
Tip: The easiest way to get the Roadkill King achievement is to use the Agency SUV to mow them down. Using the A brake going in a reverse circle is the best best here to get a bunch of them at once if they are running near the vehicle.
Shai-Gen Cleanser - 50 gamerscore points.
Assassinate Shai-Gen - Kill all Shai-Gen gang members.
Tip: In order to get the Shai-Gen Cleanser achievement you will need to kill all of the Shai-Gen bosses and then complete the final battle, indicated by a star on the map. Once all of them have been eliminated you'll get the achievement.
Shai-Gen Intel Master - 10 gamerscore points.
Locate all Shai-Gen dossier targets.
Tip: No explanation needed here, you'll get the Shai-Gen Intel Master achievement when you locate all of the boss locations in Shai-Gen. Just roaming the city will get you this achievement throughout the normal course of game play.
Shot-putter - 10 gamerscore points.
Throw any object [other than a grenade] 205 feet or more.
Tip: Getting the Shot-putter achievement is really simple, and you don't need to climb a building to do it. Just throw a body into the ocean. The depth of the ocean, for some reason, counts towards the total length of the throw. Consider it a glitch.
