Quick Review | 

  

For the original 1000G it's not a super quick MAX but is very maxable and very fun to do so!

 

None of the Achievements or Trophies "A/T" are too difficult just requires experiencing most of what this game has to offer which are some of my favorite types of "Game & Achievement List" Combos. There really is no specific order to the A/Ts so you can do them in between or after the story and come back to most of them. Even the story itself lets you choose what area you want to do first. As far as the Online A/Ts use the one guide below for ALL 5.

 

There are also 3 DLC packs and a New Game + Title Update that requires you to beat "New Game +" for 1 Achievement.

 

I have separate guides for each DLC that covers ALL A/Ts in each pack. They are also maxable, go to their own pages for more info. New Game + is very doable especially if you use the DLC weapons from the "Lost On Mars" DLC.

Where To Find & Hunt A Bald Eagle | Been There, Done That A/T

Been There Done That | Complete all Hunting & Fishing Challenges

Been There Done That | Complete all Hunting & Fishing Challenges

- The Bald Eagle is by far the hardest to get.

- Most of the other animals will be easy to find, and for the fish refer to my guide below.

- Now I found it seemed to trigger the eagle to come out when I was fishing in the nearby water, as seen in the video above.

Then all you have to do is kill it, fast travel, and do it again :)

Explosive Surprise Achievement

Explosive Surprise | Kill 5 enemies with sabotaged vehicles

Explosive Surprise | Kill 5 enemies with sabotaged vehicles

- The best way I found was to approach a cultist vehicle on the road and run up to the hood and Hold X to sabotage the vehicle

(you can heal with Y at the same time to stay alive). 

- Once they jump out keep one close to the truck, I let him punch me, then I just kept him between me and the truck until it blew up

*Buy the "Saboteur" perk from the skill tree early in the Campaign, then just sabotage vehicles throughout game-play in order to unlock this naturally*
