    Classified intel

    This type of intel is randomly obtained from searchable items, and their locations change during every playthrough. You will need to collect a total of five of these types of intel to unlock them. Only one player can pick it up, and it will automatically unlock the intel in order. Any area can contain intel items.

    Encrypted intel

    This type of intel is permanent laptops that can be found throughout the Mayday map in the following locations:

      1. Sleeper Agent: Drill the upstairs door in the first area. Then, shoot out the window, walk onto the pipe, and follow it to the left to find the laptop.

      5. The Guardian: In the final area, the laptop is on the opposite side of where you enter on the walkway.

  • Easy "Carbon Faceprint" achievement

    In Mission 7: Federation Day, towards the end of the mission, you will rappel down a building. It will be the third time you rappel in this mission. It is after you turn off the elevators to stop enemy forces from closing in on your position. Once you interact with the rope, do not do anything else, and simply wait for a couple of seconds. The photocopier will fall straight onto your face, and you will get the "Carbon Faceprint" achievement.

  • Easy "Cog In The Machine" achievement

    At the beginning of Mission 13: End Of The Line, quietly kill the first five enemies by yourself, without being seen or heard. Kills from your teammates do not count. You can shoot enemies with your silenced weapons to remain undetected. The first kill will occur automatically when you jump down a ledge. The second enemy is in the train yard. The third enemy is with three other enemies. Wait until your teammates arrive and shoot either one of the enemies. Your team will take out the rest. The fourth and fifth enemies are behind the gate that your teammate opens for you. Prone and kill both of them quickly before your teammates kill them for you.

  • Easy "David & Goliath" achievement

    Approximately halfway through Mission 12: Into The Deep, you will have to use a torpedo to destroy a warship. While guiding the torpedo, you will automatically be using thermal vision and can see a red area on the side of the ship. Hit this red area to destroy the LCS and get the "David & Goliath" achievement.

  • Easy "Deep Freeze" achievement

    At the end of Mission 10: Clockwork, you will have to escape an enemy facility. While one of your teammates is driving, you will gain control over a grenade launcher turret. There will be a lot of vehicles chasing you. Instead of shooting at them directly, shoot a little bit in front of them to blow a hole into the ground. If they drive over it, the vehicle and its crew will become incapacitated, which counts towards this achievement. Do this to eight different vehicles before reaching the end of the mission to get the "Deep Freeze" achievement.

  • Easy "Egg-stra Devastation!" achievement ("Devastation" DLC)

    Destroy the four hidden hive eggs in a public match in the four maps in the "Devastation" DLC. After destroying an egg, it will be saved to your process. You can then quit the match, if desired. After destroying the four eggs, load Mayday (Extinction mode), and destroy a hive to get a 10,000 XP bonus and the "Egg-stra Devastation!" achievement. The four eggs can be found in the following locations of the four maps:

      Behemoth: Look for a small rectangular balcony in the north-western edge of the excavator walkway. Look west from that area at the underside of the excavator platform on the western boundary of the map to see the egg on one of the railings below.

      Collision: Go to the southeast side of the map, and stand on the right edge of the boat. Look to the right of the destroyed bridge to see the egg attached to the bottom right of the pillar, where the waves are crashing into it.

      Ruins: The egg is inside a tower located outside the boundaries of the map. To get a good view of it, go to the second floor of the ruins along the eastern edge, and look south through the window to see the tower. The egg is hanging from the roof.

      Unearthed: Go to the large circular structure in the lower southwest corner of the map. There is a huge stone pillar sticking out of it. Keep going around the railing surrounding the stone pillar and looking down until you see the egg in the crevice below.

  • Easy "End Of Your Rope" achievement

    At the beginning of Mission 15: All Or Northing, you will have to clear the flight deck of enemies. Then, you will have to pick up the Osprey targeting control. As soon as you pick it up, enemies will start attacking the ship from the side. They will come in dinghies and throw grappling hooks on the ship. Wait until an enemy starts climbing the rope, then cut it with your knife to get the "End Of Your Rope" achievement.

  • Easy "Fly-by-wire" achievement

    Shortly after Mission 16: Severed Ties begins, you will see a prompt on the screen that says "Press Y to switch to guided rounds". Once you see this prompt, attack helicopters will arrive. Simply do as instructed and switch to guided rounds to shoot down all three helicopters and get the "Fly-by-wire" achievement.

  • Easy "Grindin'" achievement

    Towards the end of Mission 11: Atlas Falls, you will have to use a console to regulate the pressure of some valves. It is part of the story and cannot be missed. There will be three bars on the screen. You need to keep them in the middle, so they are colored green. Use the Left Analog-stick to move the bars up and down to keep them in the green zone. It does not matter if they drop to the yellow zone briefly, just as long as you bring them back to the green zone quick enough.

  • Easy "It Came From Below!" achievement

    During Mission 6: Legends Never Die, there are three different locations where you can kill enemies while underwater. The water is just waist-deep, so you have to crouch, and then kill enemies with your knife. It is recommended to play on the "Rookie" difficulty when attempting to do this to make it as easy as possible. Enemies will still be shooting at you when you go underwater, and you have to get really close to them to perform knife kills. Just run up to the enemies standing in water, crouch, and use the knife to kill them to get the "It Came From Below!" achievement.

  • Easy "Jack-pot" achievement

    In Mission 14: Sin City, you will reach an egyptian casino. A lot of enemies will ambush you in this area. Destroy all slot machines in this area by shooting their screens. At the end of the casino is a gate that one of your teammates will raise for you. Go under it, and you will reach a broken escalator. Before you walk down the escalator, look to the opposite side of the room to find five more slot machines. Destroy their screens to get the "Jack-pot" achievement.

  • Easy "Jungle Ghosts" achievement

    In Mission 9: The Hunted, you must complete the entire mission without ever being spotted by an enemy to get the "Jungle Ghosts" achievement. In the first part of the mission, you are on your own. Stay to the left side of the area, and watch the radar. Nearby enemies will be shown with red dots on the radar. You can kill any necessary enemies. Always stay crouched to avoid being noticed. In the second area, you will see some burning rubble. Move slowly, and stay to the left side again until you reach your team. From this point on, you will only need to follow your teammates and do exactly what they tell you to do. If you are spotted at any point, just restart the checkpoint, and try again.

  • Easy "Liberty Wall" achievement

    In Mission 2: Brave New World, after defeating the enemies at the gas station, you will have to fight your way through an old sewer. Once you reach the end of this area, you will be attacked by two helicopters. The first (smaller) helicopter will fly away after a short amount of time -- so take it down quickly. There are several MAAWS rocket launchers on some crates. Grab one of them, and when shooting, keep aiming at your target to guide the missile. Shoot down both helicopters using the rocket launcher to get the "Liberty Wall" achievement.

  • Easy "Piece Of Cake" achievement

    Play Mission 11: Atlas Falls on the Veteran difficulty. After using the grapnel gun, you will have to kill a lot of enemies and go to the common room. You will then have to breach the door. After the door has been breached, throw all your flashbangs and frag grenades to kill the enemies inside. Make sure to not waste any grenades before reaching this room, as you will need them all. If you do not kill all enemies with your grenades, you can simply let your teammates kill the rest of them. If you get hit at all, restart the checkpoint, and try again.

  • Easy "Sleeping Beauty" achievement

    In Mission 7: Federation Day, after uploading the virus in the server room, you will have to rappel down the building. There are two enemies on a balcony. Kill them first to avoid being detected. Two floors below that balcony is an enemy sleeping in a chair. Shoot him through the window to get the "Sleeping Beauty" achievement.

  • Easy "Sprinter" achievement

    This can only be done in Extinction mode. You first must destroy all 12 hives to unlock the computer that initiates the exfiltration countdown. The computer will spawn right next to the last hive, and all players have to activate it simultaneously. You will then have 2 minutes and 30 seconds to get back to the helicopter in the starting area. Meteorite barricades will block your way, but they will automatically fall apart after 30 seconds, and there are only two of them. You will also be attacked by many Rhinos. They are heavily armored -- so use armor breaking ammo to kill them. Fully upgraded sentry guns are very helpful, as they distract and damage the Rhinos. If your health gets low, deploy fully upgraded armor vests. Armor can be especially useful if you are running and a Rhino attacks you from behind. Make sure all players have armor vests in their loadout to avoid going down.

  • Easy "They Look Like Ants" achievement

    At the end of Mission 17: Loki, you will be controlling weapons from space. You can see the exact blast radius when aiming. The ammo is unlimited, so you can shoot as often as desired. Kill the foot soldiers first, and then destroy the main targets. Make sure to carefully kill all enemies before destroying the final target. Do not aim anywhere near the allies or they will die. If you think you may have accidentally killed allies, immediately restart the checkpoint, and try again.

  • Easy "Tickets Please" achievement

    In Mission 18: The Ghost Killer, after killing the first enemies, you will be attacked by several helicopters. Shortly after this, the grapple guys will climb up the train. There are four of them, but you only need to kill two of them to get the "Tickets Please" achievement. You must kill them before they reach the top of the train. If you fail to do this, restart the checkpoint, and try again.

  • Easy "Waste Not" achievement

    During Mission 4: Struck Down, you will have to use the remote sniper four times. You cannot miss these opportunities, as they are required to progress in the mission. Only fire when your crosshairs turn yellow. It will be a guaranteed hit. In the first sequence, you must kill at least one enemy, and your team will do the rest. In the second sequence, you must take out four enemies with rocket launchers. In the third sequence, you must clear an airfield, and kill several enemies. In the fourth sequence, you must kill the three enemies that fire their MGs from vehicles. If you miss a shot, you can pause the game and restart the checkpoint at any time. Even if you restart, you will still get the "Waste Not" achievement.
