    Full credit to "Blaze Naruto Shippuden" from PST for this tip.

    I never seen this posted anywhere in TA so sharing this. Easy way to get credit for master difficulty. I personally felt this game is unfair on master difficulty. The enemy goes down quickly but takes you down even more quicker. A grunt killing me with a pistol in two shots from 30m distance is just insane. Titans were surprisingly easier to kill.

    1. Start the game on master difficulty. First chapter doesn't matter
    2. Get killed intentionally. The screen greys out with X to respawn. Do not press x but press start and change difficulty to easy. Do not press x still and the game will reload itself from last checkpoint
    3. Play through the rest of the level and complete on easy but get credit for master difficulty completion.
    4. If you somehow died on easy after switching, do the same but this time change to master and repeat the steps. Death by fall doesn't matter as it doesn't prompt respawn. Only death by gunfire and explosions count as death.
    5. Need to do this for every chapter and can't be done at one stretch. Eg. Finish first chapter , let the next chapter load. Quit to main menu, level select chapter 2 to start on master and so on.
    6. Chapter 4,5 and 6 has three sections each. For these you will get credit for only first section initially. The other two sections need to be played on easy to enable chapter and section selection. Once enabled replay the last two sections using same trick from steps 1 thru 3.
    7. All other chapters need to be credited with master difficulty (yellow symbol) before completing the final chapter.

    This is the first video that comes up when you Google the achievement. The guy in the video is playing on PlayStation but it doesn't matter because the solution is exactly the same.

    Here is a full playlist for Titanfall 2 on Master difficulty. It features commentary throughout to convey various strategies for success.


    If for some reason you do not like commentary, here is a full game walkthrough on Master difficulty without it.

    Hope these help.

    beets101Nice work ash, but don't be fooled I'm finding this way harder than I thought it would be. COD is a breeze compared to sections of this game with crap checkpoints. Videos are great as usual

    HawkeyeBarry20Great walk through, only thing I'll mention is there's a big skip to avoid the big battle in level 4 and in the production floor (still level 4) you can stay in that home in progress longer and hide behind stuff instead of getting out as much as Seraphim did. +1 from me

    Much of the game is actually avoidable, few fights require the enemy to be defeated. To the best of my knowledge the only fight you have to survive is when you and BT are separated by a sludge wall.

    You may be surprised with how many fights you can run past. The fight after traversing the sideways town to fight Ash for example, you can wait and hide in a house till all waves have released then run past.
