Search the indicated locations to find all 322 collectibles (50 Letters From Home, 50 Letters To Home, 50 Last Letters, 75 Misc Documents, 27 Sniper Reports, 40 Duty Rosters, and 30 Deadeye Targets). The two Co-Op Overwatch missions also contain collectibles and are required for the achievements. None of the collectibles are missable. You can collect missing items at any time using mission select. There is a collectible counter for each mission which displays how many items of each type you have found. All collectibles are saved automatically when you obtain them. Thus, you can return to the title screen without having to reach the next checkpoint, and you do not have to collect them again if you die. A lot of letters, documents, sniper reports, and all duty rosters are dropped by enemies. When looking at them through the binoculars, it will usually show if they have a collectible item. You can also see their name through the binoculars -- so compare with the name in the video to find the right person. Or simply kill everyone and loot the corpses. Some of the collectibles are not from enemies and actually hidden throughout the game. Deadeye Targets look like eagle statues and you must shoot them down.

To get the "Dirty Tactics" achievement, you must place an explosive on a dead body (anything except Stick grenades work). When an enemy comes to investigate, it will explode and you will get the achievement. Either carry the dead body and drop it where enemies can see it, or throw some stones to lure them.Easy "Fire And Brimstone" achievement
In Mission 6: Magazzeno Facility, loot a "spotter" enemy to get a flare gun. They always have one. One spotter is found very early in the mission. Look between the first few buildings on the left side, very shortly after the mission begins. He is in front of a building. When you mark him with the binoculars, it will say that he is a spotter and carrying a flare gun. Kill him and loot the body. Then, go to the following location (without being seen). Just stick to the road and throw stones to distract enemies while getting to the location. Once you are at the location, climb the two yellow pipes on the right, at the top of the stairs, to reach an area by the large satellite dish with 5-7 enemies standing all in one spot, talking to each other. Shoot the flare gun at them and wait for the artillery to hit to get the "Fire And Brimstone" achievement. If you are detected, they may run off -- so stay stealthy. The flare gun has two modes "Targeted" and "Distributed". For this spot, "Targeted" is easier to use because the enemies are so close together and it is more precise. Create a manual save before using the flare gun -- so you can try again in case something goes wrong.
Shoot an enemy in the foot with the Welrod pistol (or another weak pistol/rifle). Sometimes this will make them fall down. Then, move close to them, take out the sniper rifle, and shoot between their legs to get "The Nutcracker - Sweet!" achievement. One area this can easily be done is in Mission 8: Allagra Fortress. The enemies in this mission have more health and do not die so quickly by your pistol shots, giving you more attempts to incapacitate them. You can do this with the first two enemies in the mission. After incapacitating the enemy, you may want to create a manual save game -- just in case the testicle shot goes wrong you can reload and try again.Easy "The Path Of Most Resistance" achievement
At the very end of Mission 8: Allagra Fortress, you have to destroy a plane. Instead of shooting the engine, wait for the plane to take off and for the enemy to say "Open the missile hatch!", then shoot the missile it is carrying (under the plane). The missile will explode and destroy the plane, resulting in a cutscene and the achievement unlocking. Note: You must use a bolt-action sniper rifle. All sniper rifles except the Gewehr 43 and M1 are bolt-action. The M1903 Springfield that is unlocked from the beginning is also bolt-action.Steam achievements
