    This achievement requires you to reach the first level of infamy. There are only two requirements necessary for going infamous.
    1) Reached level 100. (this is also another achievement on its own)
    2) Currently possess $200,000,000 in offshore cash.
    You'll need the offshore cash as a buy in to going infamous and reaching infamy level one. On the main menu after meeting the requirements, "BECOME INFAMOUS" will become an option. After confirming, the achievement will pop and you'll be reset at level 1-0.

    - For gaining EXP, I highly recommend tackling rewarding heists such as Hoxton Breakout, Hotline Miami & Bomb: Forest. Having stealth EXP bonuses & leveling up at least one perk deck are great ways to quicken the process.
    - For gaining large amounts of cash, cooking bags of meth on Rats & Hotline Miami, farming bank heists, The Bombs & Hoxton Breakout are all great techniques of earning cash.

    KanchanaburiFor the sake of 100% completion, is there really any need to go 'Infamous' before completing all the other acheivements? Does it make you stronger or better in any way or is it like a COD prestige and you simply do everything over again with a faster rate of XP?

    KanchanaburiAnd is there any information on the XP needed to reach level 100?

    TehMeatyWalrusInfamy levels give you more EXP and i'm pretty sure better rate drops. I would highly recommend going infamous after everything else is done.

    RSA BR SAWhat do we lose when become infamous? All weapons, perks and all skill points? Or do we keep soemthing?

    TehMeatyWalrusThe only thing you lose is access to weapons along with skill points. You'll have to repurchase your skills but the weapons can be unlocked and used as if you never went infamous.

    RSA BR SASo, do I lose my skill points but can I purchase them again as soon as I became infamous (just money needed) or do I need to level up all again to have them available for pucharsing?
    Posted by RSA BR SA on 19 May 16 at 15:11
    TehMeatyWalrusYou would need to level up again to unlock them.
