    The solutions posted work great but I read another method that can save time and patience especially if you just beat the game on normal. I have used it for the hard and insane achievements and it only took 10-15 mins.

    ***Credit goes to x pelon x on x360a***
    Found a new solution instead of playing all through the level.

    After completed the game on Normal mode, go to the interface & just copy your save data on a USB Key.

    Launch the last chapter/level choosing your difficulty (from your hard drive).
    Quit the game and go to options game.
    Select "stockage device" & USB Key.
    Go back to campaign > Continue.

    The last checkpoint will be loaded, you need to kill just 5/6 guys (not too hard if you have kept the sniper rifle) and finish the game for the achievements.

    *Update from Eric Filtro* Perfect solution. To make it just a little bit clearer. Once you beat the game, copy the file to another device, let's say the USB. Now this is the important part. When you go to Select Chapter, first make sure you are loading from your Hard Drive by going to Options, Select Storage Device, Hard Drive. Now select chapter with the difficulty you want to play in. Once you start, quit and go back to Options, select the USB, and choose Continue campaign. I messed up at first because I didn't pick the Hard Drive the first time around and I actually overwrote the last checkpoint.

    *Update 2 from Grizzly Bear*: With the addition of cloud storage, you can use a cloud saved game rather than a flash drive.

    *Update 3: David1231231 has confirmed this still works Oct 2018. Added that if you quit the game right after the achievement pops the game does not overwrite your save file so you can use it to load for the other difficulty.

    **Note: According to Vito084 this works for the FRE/GER version as well.


    If you have any questions about the above method just leave a comment and I'll help you out as much as I can. Enjoy!

    The difficulty achievements are not stackable, so you cannot unlock the normal or hard achievements by earning this achievement.

    However, you do not need to replay the whole game on insane to earn this achievement. Just replay and complete the final level. Same goes for the other difficulties.

    SkelixYou load up the final chapter of Act III. The first guy you kill will be the guy you drop the car on. Also use the unlimited ammo/grenade cheats. The achievment will still be rewarded.

    Rick Neto 21This is really painful! The game is terrible, controls, graphics and sound are weak and I need to play the last level 3 times to unluck normal, hard and insane achievement!!!
    I need to play 2 times more. :(
    Tks for the tips, they are really a good help.

    At the final level whenever you pass a checkpoint you continue from there. There are 3 checkpoints at this level. I found the first one the most difficult as enemies attack you from every corner. Even from above. It needs patience and carefful planing. Run from cover to cover and DO NOT play Rambo. The second checkpoint is rather easy but be aware that some times, soldiers may be spawn in front of you without notice. Every time you climb down a ladder throw a grenade at the enemies and run for cover. If you stay put more than a second they will surely kill you. At the end of the game when the bomb is ready to explode, quick kill the first 2-3 enemy soldiers and run for the bomb. Stop the clock and 100 points is yours.
