laugh. It's only got like 11 achievements and I just 100%ed it yesterday, so figured I'd throw one up, plus it's been a while for me, I'm starting to look bad compared to some of my other content members!

Just so you know you cant get Bomb Technician in the Tutorial anymore, I threw countless of grenades and no matter how many blew up I lived. Before you do the Night Moves mission I did Germans on The Run, when it loads just toss the grenades at the ground (takes 3 or so) and when you die just load up the briefing room again (have to redo tutorial) and choose the Night Moves to do the Ghandi Award achievement and so on.
Everything good in life is illegal.

It's my fault for not doing thorough research, but really a bit surprised/irritated that the walkthrough doesn't call out how easy it is to not get 40 upgrade points and so miss *both* upgrade achievements.

At the bottom of the tips and tricks page:

"There are two potentially missable achievements that require you to upgrade all of your pistol settings and rifle settings - do not use your points until the end of the game, at which point you can upgrade them all the way then reload the save for the other. Failing to do it this way will result in you having to play through the game twice (about a seven hour game)."

At the beginning of the story walkthrough - literally the first words:

"Although I mention this later at a more logical time, I feel the need to make it clear right away. There are two potentially missable achievements that require you to upgrade all of your pistol settings and rifle settings - do not use your points until the end of the game, at which point you can upgrade them all the way then reload the save for the other. Failing to do it this way will result in you having to play through the game twice (about a seven hour game)."

And literally the first time you get points:

"You will now be back in the future room. This is where I feel it is important to note that you should have received “upgrade points.” It is physically impossible to get enough points to fully upgrade both your rifle and pistol, so do not use your points. Instead save your points until the very end of the game, at which point we will use a bit of saving and reloading."

That said, a current WT manager / editor is more than welcome to edit it make it even more obvious - I have no objection. Don't want anyone to miss it and have to play more of this terrible game. Wherever Globalizer suggests is good with me.

Yeah, I saw those notes - but I read it as "don't upgrade or you won't have enough points" not also "make sure you don't kill blue aura guys or you won't have enough points". I finished the campaign at 37 points, zero upgrades, and wasn't even killing a ton of blue guys.

Luckily it's not *that* long of a game (and I didn't hate it as much as many people did) but I really didn't want to spend that extra 3-4 hours listening to all those attempts at clever dialogue. ("Dickbeaters" as a word for hands? Talk about some cringey 2005 gamer vibes.)

As for a suggestion, I'd just add a sentence in each of those places: "Also, killing blue aura enemies will reduce your upgrade points earned and it is very possible to not have enough points to earn either achievement, so avoid killing blue aura enemies whenever possible."
