  • Wedging a barrel to a corner will help.

Good Shepherd

Successfully complete 25 missions where at least 1 player is 10 ranks lower than you.

  • Do your friend a favor and buy this game for them, they’ll appreciate it. Public lobbies also work I guess.

If Only I Got Paid For This…

In the Barrel Hoop game, achieve a score of 3000 or more in less than 100 kicks.

  • Kick the barrel when the hoop goes right to left, as when it’s changing direction on the right side it won’t change speed. You’ll learn the timing after a few tries. Also there is a significant bonus to hitting consecutive shots, and it is lost when you miss or there is too much time between the shots.

Lone Wolf

You’ve completed 10 solo missions. Impressive.

  • The mission has to be selected as Solo, hosting a private mission and playing it alone won’t work.

Bosco, You’re The Best

You’ve completed 100 Solo missions. Most impressive.

  • See “Lone Wolf”

Exploring My Options

You unlocked a new primary and secondary weapon for the same character.

  • New weapons are unlocked by completing their respective assignments from the assignment terminal after your dwarf has reached level 10 for the primary weapon or level 15 for the secondary weapon.

State Of The Art

You purchased a Mod in every tier for one of each upgradable item in the Equipment Terminal for the same character.

  • Every upgradable item means primary, secondary, pickaxe, support, utility and armor rig.

Advanced Robotics

You purchased a Mod in every tier for Bosco.

  • You can upgrade Bosco from the Drone Modification terminal.

I Like It Down Here

You stayed in a mission for an hour or longer.

  • Staying in the Space Rig and then starting a mission should work, though I’m not so sure about that. If you do it in a mission, you need to complete the mission to get the achievement.

Hit ’em Where It Hurts

You scored 1000 weakspot hits. Impressive.

  • Weak spots are usually in the mouth, abdomen or other glowing parts.

Designated Decoy

You took the most damage from a Dreadnought out of your whole team.

  • Be careful not to go down during the fight, or it will not grant you the achievement.

Without A Paddle

You were the last dwarf standing, with no primary or secondary ammo left, just when a Dreadnought spawned. Some days you should just stay in bed…

  • Empty your clips from every weapon, including support weapon and mobility tool. Then empty your grenades and flares, and then break the egg with your pickaxe and the achievement should pop. (Confirmation needed)

It’s My Party

You’ve hosted and successfully completed 50 team missions from start to finish.

  • Self explanatory, and only the host will get it.

What Are These Things?

You’ve collected 5 mysterious alien artifacts. They are hot to the touch, and smells faintly of…tarmac?

  • These cubes are called ERR://23¤Y%/ and can be found in caves with grey pulsating spikes coming from the ground accompanied with a purple glow. As of now, they are extremely rare and don’t do anything.

Big Spender

What a team player. You’ve paid for 25 rounds at the Abyss Bar

  • You can buy Oily Oaf Brew, Glyphid Slammer and Leaf Lover’s Special with only credits and without having to unlock any beer licenses.

Darwin Award

Sacrificed yourself to the Barrel Hoop while intoxicated.

  • Jump through the barrel hoop while drunk.

That’s Not How You Play This Game

Rubbish goes in the bin, not the intricate machinery of the Barrel Hoop!

  • Throw an empty beer keg through the barrel hoop. This can be done slightly easier from under the barrel hoop.

Barrel Kicker

Dat accuracy. You kicked ten barrels into the hoop without a single miss.

  • See “If Only I Got Paid For This…”.

Self Control

Succesfully play 10 consecutive missions without kicking a single barrel on the space rig.

  • Just don’t… It’s not that hard.

Foreign Objects In The Launch Bay

You kicked every barrel into the Launch Bay. You are why Mission Control drinks.

  • Launch Bay, as in under the Drop Pod on the force field.

The A-Team

Through skillful maneuvering, you put a barrel in every seat in the drop pod.

  • Kick them up via the ladder to the Drop Pod, and then make sure the barrels are deep enough in the seats so that they don’t really have space to move around.

Time Well Spent

You stuffed every single barrel on the Space Rig into the drop pod. Management weeps.

  • If the barrels fall down to the Launch Bay, you can get them up via the ladder or the small hole in the wall. The barrels can also sometimes bug out and disappear forcing you to start all over again.

Party Time!

You threw a toast to good music while in a full team.

  • Salute with a full beer keg in your hand by pressing “V”, while music is being played from the jukebox. The timing is relatively precise, so if you don’t get it the first time, just try again.

Happy Feet

You spent an hour or more shaking your money maker.

  • Dance to the Jukebox music for one hour. You can check your progress via View Stats > <Player’s> Leaderboards > Dancing Time > Show. A score of 3600 points is required to unlock the achievement.

Disc Jockey

Play 25 songs on the jukebox. (songs must play to the end to count)

  • The Jukebox is located opposite to the Abyss Bar. You usually get this while doing “Happy Feet”.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
