    This game can be a big pain if you play it legitly on every difficulty. Luckily, if you don't mind taking what some might call "The Low Road", then you're in luck! You can totally get all of the Single Player achievements while using in-game cheats to pave the way to success.

    Just pause the game, go to the 'code entry' screen, and type in one of these codes. Note: The codes are Case Sensitive.

    Bloodlust ------------------------ Unlimited Feral Abilities
    UnleashHell ------------------------ Unlimited Ammunition
    ImJackCarver ------------------------ Restore Health
    FeralAttack ------------------------ Feral Attack in the Early Levels
    GiveMeTheMaps ------------------------ All Maps

    Edit: I just read the review for this game on this site, and I saw that the guy mentioned the fact that you could use cheat codes to get the achievements in Single Player. lawl.

    ShaneKarmaDo you have to save them all on the same file in other words overwrite the last one or do you need to make a seperate file for each playthrough?

    Fire Hawk DPro-tip: If you have access SmartGlass you can just type in the codes. Even better, Windows 8 lets you snap the SmartGlass app to the side, in case you're also watching videos fro the vials or something.

    And, yes ShaneKarma, you have to start a whole new save for each difficulty. Also, awesome name (it's my real name).

    For completing the campaign on difficulties other than Predator, I suggest you exploit the infinite feral abilities. By jumping from objective to objective, both Instincts and Predator can be completed in half the time. Simply charge a jump while in feral mode and skip over or through all enemy encampments. With the exception of snipers, the enemy AI has incredibly bad accuracy and you should emerge relatively unscathed.

    Avoiding unnecessary engagements will save you a considerable amount of time on both Hunter and Rookie. I completed the expansion on Hunter difficulty in about an hour and a half rather than the usual three to four. Skipping through the jungle does pose one risk: snipers can and will pick you off even on the easier difficulties! Clear them out before moving on! Moreover, some objectives require vehicles to ram through barricades. Pay attention to your objectives before skipping through an entire level.

    The only potential problem you may encounter is protecting Doyle on Predator difficulty. Identify the enemy patterns (as they vary) and keep trying. Regarding the Instincts boss fight, once the regular enemies have been dispatched, take cover behind the helicopter and shoot whenever you spot an opening. Once he jumps down from his perch, rush him and repeatedly push B. Each time the boss is hit with a feral punch he will be momentarily stunned. With infinite feral, simply button-mash B as he will never recover.

    JakeythedudeI'm a bit confused by "charge a jump" I've played up to the level 'Mines' and all I can do is feral attacks and tracking. Am I missing something?

    This achievement can be tricky mainly because of its time consumption seeing as you need to complete both story's on all difficulties (not stackable). I'd suggest going through 1 story at a time, going through easy-medium-hard etc. That way you'll get a real good insight into the spawns of enemies during your easy playthroughs and as you accomplish each fight or stage you can formulate where you could create a better trap defense, use a more suited gun, remember where they appear and pick a better vantage point etc.
