    This achievement is pretty simple to get, but it can be hard to figure out exactly what you're missing if you don't know the full list. So here it is, complete with where you can find entries.

    Contrary to the other solution, it is not necessary to hack any terminal, let alone all of them to obtain this achievement. *I should point out that you still need to access them to open up some areas, but playing the hacking minigame isn't required to advance.*

    To obtain the weapon upgrades, you will need to have that weapon to access them.


    Imperial Convoys: Available at the start of the game.
    Meet With Enemy: Run into a truck on the map to get the entry.
    FSA camps: Available at the start, or upon entering area 00, I'm not sure. You'll definitely get this one though.
    Areas 00-12: You'll get these as you enter each area.
    Areas 13-19: This is actually one entry, and you will get it upon entering any of these areas.
    Secret Tunnels: In area 19 there is a POW in the second level door. Hit him a few times with your arm, and he'll tell you about tunnels between areas 15 and 18, and 14 and 17.


    Weapon Handling: Available at the start.
    Small Health Pick-up: Defeat an enemy while missing some health and he may drop one. They will also appear upon successfully hacking a terminal. (Assuming you're missing life, of course.)
    Medium Health Pick-up: Same as above.
    Large Health Pick-up: Same as above, except these tend to drop in the later stages.
    Score Token: Defeat an enemy for the first time in a stage while at full health, and he will always drop one of these. Pick it up for the entry.
    Extra Life: You can easily find one in a meet with the enemy stage, or in the "syringe" doors in neutral areas.
    Yashichi: Entry received after obtaining any yashichi.
    Revolver: Available at the start.
    Revolver Upgrade: Area 00.
    Grenades: Clear area 01.
    Grenades Upgrade: Area 02. Directly above the boss door is where the upgrade is located. To get there, go under the green doorway with the tank at the top of the stage, and while underneath near the left side of that platform, drop a grenade below you. You'll hear a sound to confirm you've opened the path to the door.
    Plasma Rifle: Clear area 04.
    Plasma Rifle Upgrade: Area 06. When you get to the part where barrels start rolling at you, head all the way to the right, drop down, and grapple the area just to the left of the light at the end of the platform. Drop down, and you'll find a door. Go in, dispatch the mini-tank droids, activate the switches with the plasma rifle, and enter the newly opened door to find your upgrade.
    Bazooka: Clear area 05.
    Bazooka Upgrade: Found near the end of the Albatross. Impossible to miss.
    Shotgun: Clear area 02.
    Shotgun Upgrade: Area 08. When you enter the door at the start of the level, go up 3 floors, and take the path to the right. It'll seem like a dead end, but you'll notice a ledge you can grab above you. Swing off the lower platform and grab it. You'll probably be at a dead stop, so use the shotgun to get yourself moving again. You'll then swing off to the left and grab another ledge above you. Use the shotgun to get moving again, swing over to the door, and find your upgrade inside.
    Vector Cannon: Clear area 09.
    Vector Cannon Upgrade: Area 10. After you clear the sprinkler droids, you'll come to a shaft with spikes at the bottom. Go up the shaft and to the left, until you start taking fire from more sprinkler droids. Instead of continuing left, go up and to the right. Past the sprinkler cannon(s) you will see a door and two trigger blocks. Hit them both with the vector cannon, and walk in to claim your prize.
    Joe's Machine Gun: Found in area 18 after clearing area 07.
    Joe's Machine Gun Upgrade: Area 07. Instead of going in the door at the start of the area, fall into the pit at the right. You may die a few times here, but the idea is to grab the ceiling after falling for a short time, and continuing right. Head up, and you'll come to a door with a trigger block. Empty your machine gun into it to open the door and find the upgrade.
    Red Comms Chip: Available at the start.
    Green Comms Chip: Area 15.
    Blue Comms Chip: Area 14.
    Yellow Comms Chip: Area 17.
    Shin Guards: Clear Area 08.
    Bulletproof Vest: Clear Area 11.
    Helmet: In the secret tunnel between areas 15 and 18. To access the secret tunnels, find the POW in area 19 and hit him a few times with your arm. The video also shows where to get the secret dossier.

    Iron Boots: Area 16.
    Health Recovery Pills: Clear area 10.
    Permit: Clear area 03.
    Flares: Found in Area 13.
    Secret Dossier: In the secret tunnel between areas 14 and 17. To access the secret tunnels, find the POW in area 19 and hit him a few times with your arm. Note that if you're on hard or super hard, you will probably need the vector cannon here to set off trigger blocks. On normal or easy, they're not present. Continue through the stage, get to the door at the end, but do NOT enter it. Instead, lower yourself under the platform by dropping a bit, then grabbing on to the platform again. You should be able to spot a rail below you now. Wait until the platform comes below you, and get on it. Take it to the right and find the dossier. The video for the helmet also shows how to get this.
    Power Claw: Clear area 06.

    Doors: Everywhere.
    Air Vent Block: You'll get this in area 05 near the end of the level.
    Stone Pillars: At the start of Area 04.
    Cracked Wall: There are several places to get these, the easiest of which is probably area 04. Above the comms room is a blue barrel. Up one level and to the left is the cracked wall. Throw a grenade at it and you will get both this entry and the cracked floor entry.
    Cracked Floor: See above.
    Mechanical Lever: There's plenty in the Albatross, but you'll likely run across one before then.
    Trigger Block: You'll see one of these at the top of area 05, and will have to use one to get into area 7.
    Bolted Wall: There's one in area 09 near the start. When you dispatch the first pair of backpack cable soldiers, you'll be forced to fall down a shaft. Halfway down, there is a path to the left. Grab the ceiling on the way down, and get in the hallway. There will be another pit to fall down to the left, and at the bottom you'll find the bolted wall.
    Blue Barrels: Practically everywhere. There's some at the start of area 01. You must pick it up to get the entry. Hitting one with a rocket or grenade may work as well.
    Yellow Barrels: In the gas room inside the Albatross.
    Outer Wall 1: At the beginning of area 06.
    Outer Wall 2: At the beginning of area 03.

    Bullets: See above.
    Challenge Rooms Stars: See above.
    BC Trailer - Available from the start. Available from the start.
    BC Retro Outfit - Available from the start.

    BC Prototype Weapon: This one is in the Albatross. Once you get past the gas, mechanical, and electrical areas, you'll go through the door in the main hallway. If you're on hard or super hard, you'll be in an outside area you'll have to complete first. After that, you'll be inside again, in a twisty corridor. Follow the lower level all the way to the right and take the elevator up. There will be electric barriers everywhere. You'll need to use several switches to turn them off. After that's done, you'll head across an area with a few moving platforms, and the floor will be electrified. When you come out at the top area, there will be a switch near the ceiling. Kill the mini-tank droid and the sprinkler cannons, then activate it. From here, you need to backtrack through the area you just came from, and go down to the door. Don't enter it though. Instead, go left through the hallway, and the prototype weapon will be at the end.

    Purple Matrix: After collecting all 12 yashichis in areas 01-12, go back to area 00. On the ground level on the right side, there will be a door with the yashichi symbol on it. Enter it, and inside will be the purple matrix.

    This achievement is unlocked by collecting all of the Yaschichis, finding all of the power-ups, and killing one of every enemy in the game. This achievement cannot be unlocked on Easy because the Propeller Droid in Area 5 doesn't appear on Easy difficulty. If you are playing on easy, beat the game completely and get everything that you can, then start up a new game on any higher difficulty and play stage 05 only. Once you kill the propeller droid, the achievement will unlock immediately.

    WiznyattI almost freaked since I'm doing my first playthrough on easy. When I first read that you can't do this on easy because of the propeller droid I was disappointed but now that I see you can get to him on normal after I complete easy I was stoked.
