How to unlock the Last Stand Completionist achievement

  • 19 0 4
    You only have to play the last 5 waves of each map for the achievement to unlock. Find a good place to hide and slowly take everyone out. Make good use of the remote mines, and the new and VERY helpful proximity mines. Max out your gadget upgrades one your armor all the way and proximity mine the main flow points in each area. For pistols, use the FIVE-SEVEN and I like the AK-47 as my backup. The noise gets them away from the EMP if they are focused on it.

    This works best in co-op and be sure to use the double mark and execute. If both of you have 4 people marked, only one needs to start the execute then the other can join them getting 8 kills and most the time you will not get spotted if you are hidden. After that, mark another 8 and have the other player start the execute. This, combined with the mines, will take the enemy forces down very fast!

    The only really tough map is St. Petersburg 1. Have both players hang from the inside of the top balcony (one on each side) and shoot out the lights. Mark and execute if your friend right here and the new proximity mines can take out almost 5 enemies at a time!
    Use your sonar goggles to mark enemies before the get in the open so you are ready to take them out as soon as they are within a clear shot. If you need to refill your mark and execute, wait for some guys to run past you on the balcony and press B to grab the last one so the others don't see you.

    If the EMP takes too much damage on any map or you need your mines refilled, just die. You will reload the wave you are on and the EMP goes back to 100 health and your ammo is completely full! You will still get the achievement when you complete wave 20.

    These tips work great on Realistic too, and both achievements will pop if you only do Realistic.

    splicegraphcould you be more specific as to the requirements for this achievement. Last five of each map, yet some have 2 and 3 wave sets. Exactly how many waves need to be done? 30 or 45?

    JonWayneSk8sWould you happen to know if this achievement is stackable with the one for beating all the maps on realistic?

    Thanks to this video guide I was able to do all maps of last stand on realistic solo. Thanks to Tyger7 at x360a for creating these videos.


    1. I did like the guide instructs and used all gadget upgrades on uniform. It worked well when not getting shot.
    2. A few levels required a few tries to for me to find the proper position or where the enemy saw and killed me because of stupid mistakes I made.
    3. Don't worry about the emp. Even if it gets below 25. When you die and retry it will be back at 100.
    4. You only have to do waves 15-20 for this achievement.

    NorrisMMI found myself dying about every other wave (On realistic) but it did make quick work of some of the more difficult maps while solo

    This can be done either Solo, Online Co-op or Splitscreen. There are 20 Waves for each map and the number of enemies increase after every 5th wave.

    Please be aware that

    will stack with the Normal or Rookie difficulty. So you can just start straight on realistic difficulty if you want to.

    The maps you need to complete are:

    St.Petersburg 1
    St.Petersburg 2
    Russian Embassy 1
    Russian Embassy 2
    Yastreb Complex
    Mozook Grounds
    Lumber Mill 1
    Lumber Mill 2
    Lumber Mill 3
    Printing Press 1

    Here are a few pointers to keep in mind that will help:

    You can start from Wave 15 for each map and after beating Wave 20 your achieve' will still unlock.

    Find a good vantage point to take out enemies without attracting too much attention.

    Stick to a Silenced Pistol and try to pick the enemies off 1 by 1, keep a secondary weapon that you are good with incase all hell breaks out. Preferably a shotgun!

    Use the aim assist to your advantage. As you may have noticed, when pressing the right anolog stick to aim, sometimes the cursor will lock straight on to the enemy's head. If you are quick enough you can simply aim and instantly lock on to their head and quickly fire making for a quick 1 shot kill.

    Save your 'Y' Button execute for emergencys or for a quick takedown of 4 enemies, can be 8 enemies if your team mate marks 4 soldiers too. But keep in mind when going for an execution or hand to hand kill to gain the ability to execute, you can be annoyingly caught in a chokehold or exposed to 4 or 5 enemies at once. If playing Last Stand Solo, the enemy can't choke you but can still give you a push when you try to execute them. This can give them time to plug a few more bullets into you along with their team mates.

    Take your time and keep your aim steady! Its very easy to miss the first shot from a Pistol and then just start trying to spray with it! Leave short gaps between each shot so that the reticule goes back to a small more accurate size. If the reticule goes red it will be a headshot everytime, when enemies are too far away but you are aiming at their head. The pistol can still miss as the range isn't amazing on most of the pistols.

    Here are a few videos ive found that can give you a rough idea on how to set up for each map, in the videos he just shows you the first wave of each map on Realistic difficulty.
