3. Blacklight: Tango Down Story walkthrough

Non-Level Achievements

Your first order of business should be getting your boosting group into a game of Domination. Your goal will be to hack every point on every map. Each map has 3 points, except for Slumlord which has one. Make sure that you win on each map as well as hack all the points. Once all points are hacked and the timer is ticking down have someone on the enemy team run to you. Kill them, pick up their gun, then have them run back to you. Kill them with their own gun to unlock:

Way of the Gun

Kill an opponent with their own weapon in a quick match. Ouch!

Go through the remaining maps, winning and hacking on each. A list of the maps are as follows:

Brutalism
Curfew
Derailer
Dropzone
Floodgate
Pitfall
Post Alley
Wharfare
Shadow Market
Sky Fire
Zero Point
Slum Lord

Keep track of every map you've played and won on! You don't want to second guess yourself. During this time, equip Digi Grenades in your loadout. After all the points are hacked, have your partners on the other team run to you. Throw Digi Grenades at them and take them all down, then use a regular grenade to kill yourself so you can spawn back with a grenade. Repeat for 10 kills to get:

Opportunist

Kill 10 opponents in a quick match while they are affected by a Digi Grenade.

Once that's done, swap out the Digi for the EMP grenades instead. Same tactic here, throw them at your clustered partners and kill them all, then kill yourself to resupply. After 25 of these kills, you will earn:

Flatten and Reinstall

Kill 25 opponents in quick match games while they are EMPed!

You can now move onto Team Deathmatch!

LEVEL BASED ACHIEVEMENTS

Given that fact that you've just played a few solid hours of multiplayer, I'll assume you're not Level 1 anymore. You may have even reached our first goal:

Field Officer

Reach the rank of Sergeant.

This achievement is gained for reaching the rank of Sergeant. Sergeant is Level 7, or 12,500 experience points. To give a quick perspective of what that means, I'll point out to you that every kill in Team Deathmatch is worth 100 XP. Each headshot is worth 25 XP extra. So 12,500 XP is the equivalent of 125 kills, or 100 kills that were headshots.

Commissioned Officer

Reach the rank of Second Lieutenant.

So, since you'll likely need to start boosting rank now, the best way to go about it is in TDM. Have 2 people go at once for the sake of efficiency! Just make sure that you and your boosting buddies physically move back and forth every 2 minutes, as to not get kicked for idling. Have a Digi grenade handy and have the two killers run to the other team's spawn points. Use the Digi grenade to momentarily shut down the turret defending the point, then run in and find a spot to hide from the turrets but still within view of the enemy team as they spawn in. Skyfire is the only map which this is impossible, so quit out if that pops up in rotation.

So, while in the enemy camp, kill the enemy team as they spawn in with headshots. To maximize XP, go for double kills in quick succession. You'll get killing spree and domination awards naturally. You also get a huge XP boost for reaching the "gold" tier of the awards, which is done by reaching 450 kills with each weapon type (SMG. shotgun, sniper, assault rifle, and LMG) and by getting a certain number of killing sprees and domination. Using a shotgun is not always viable, so just get 450 kills with every other weapon for a large boost in XP. You'll likely earn a minimum of 12,500 XP every match, even without the bonus XP granted from killing sprees and double kills. Upon reaching rank 50 (400,000 XP) you'll get:

Command Officer

Reach the rank of Major.

At rank 62 (660,000 XP) you'll unlock:

Achieve the rank of Brigadier General. Hats off to you!

Finally, at level 70 (900,000 XP) you will have earned all of the equipment and unlock:

Gearhead

Unlock all gear and weapons!

Note: It is likely that the achievement will not unlock upon reaching level 70. If that is the case, finish the game you are in and go to the dashboard. Go to System, Memory, and hit cn_Y on your hard drive to clear your cache. After that, load the game back up and accept the update again. At the main menu sign in and out of your profile, it will unlock when you sign back in.

Since the game is delisted and dead, the above boosting method is the way to go! Triple boxing with one other friend took me around 27 hours, just add more time onto that total if you're boosting with additional parties.
