Here is the list of all of the secret challenges:
Score 10 kills with every weapon. (req 18)
Get 10 Wins in every game type. (req 6)
100 overall wins. (req 100)
Get 100 XP using every backpack. (req 10)
Get 100 XP using every weapon. (req 18)
Get 1000 kills overall with a single weapon. (req 1000)
Get 5000 XP overall with a single backpack. (req 5000)
Get 5000 XP overall with a single weapon. (req 5000)
Get 500 XP from any single bonus event. (req 500)
Get 5 XP from every bonus XP event. (req 50)
In 1 Life: Get 10 Kills with a single weapon. (req 10)
In 1 Life: Get 25 Bonus XP (any amount of combined events) (req 25)
In 1 Life: Get 5 XP using five different backpacks. (req 5)
In 1 Life: Get 50 XP. (normal+bonus combined) (req 50)
In 1 Life: Get a kill with five weapons. (req 5)
In 1 Life: Get 15 Bonuses. (15 different bonus exp tasks) (req 15)

You may want to boost as some of these can be quite difficult, you can check your progress by going to statistics and using the LB and RB to maneuver through the various stat pages.

The earliest you can get this achievement is at 56,000 experience points due to the '5 Exp - Every Bonus Event' making this a tedious achievement within' itself.

Let me know if this needs more clarifying... again.

Thanks to Turduken for the requirements.
JaggedEdge00Although all of these can be boosted in custom games, you will still have to play for a decent amount of time to have a chance at getting all of them. The last bonus XP event is very high up in the unlocks, so you're going to have to play MP for a while just to even unlock it.

L0TS OF PIEwhat exactly is the 15 bonues in 1 life ? is it 15 different bonuses?
Posted by L0TS OF PIE on 10 Jun 09 at 02:31
YinYes, I would recommend unlocking most of the bonuses before attempting that one.

Sorry for making it unclear, I updated the guide.

TurdukenAwesome guide. As a bonus, I'd suggest adding the requirements in the list. Granted they're avail under the stats, but it'd be nice to see them here in one place where they're not all hidden like in the stat list. I'll add them below, feel free to copy/paste/format/edit to your liking for the original post.

Score 10 kills with every weapon. (req 18)
Get 10 Wins in every game type. (req 6)
100 overall wins. (req 100)
Get 100 XP using every backpack. (req 10)
Get 100 XP using every weapon. (req 18)
Get 1000 kills overall with a single weapon. (req 1000)
Get 5000 XP overall with a single backpack. (req 5000)
Get 5000 XP overall with a single weapon. (req 5000)
Get 500 XP from any single bonus event. (req 500)
Get 5 XP from every bonus XP event. (req 50)

PHT999I was thinking of buying this game however i want to know more about it before i dive in, what do you mean by requirement 5000, etc.
Posted by PHT999 on 03 Dec 10 at 20:34
Kung Fu RikiThe requirement is the amount that needs to be completed for each hidden challenge. In the example for '5000 XP overall with a single weapon' it is pretty straight forward. The requirement is 5000.

For 'Get 10 wins in every game type' the requirement is 6 which means there are only six game types.

vBURSToACTIVZvcan the 100 wins be done in custom game type????

Epsilon ThetaThat would be more or less my question too? When playing around in custom games and changing health, run speed, weapon loadout and similar, will you still be able to unlock challenges and will your kills and XP count towards the goals?

ShadowedIceI dont believe it makes a difference if you unlock them in custom or not. I believe I had some other people say that they got them in a custom match. The easiest way to test it would be check on the stats page the specific XP bonus, start a custom game, get it, finish the game, and then check the stat page to see if it updated. Everything is more or less manageable on the bonus exp without boosting except for BBQ and Lined Up.

Parallax DemonFor those wandering; all can be done in custom matches. There are two challenges though which require more then two people (Lined up reguires 3 and BBQ requires 4).

mast3r 0r0m1sAnyone know what the Get 5xp using 5 Different Backpacks is? I tried it in custom, got 6 xp with one than changed it to another, and changed it to different backpacks and it didn't unlock.
Posted by mast3r 0r0m1s on 08 Aug 11 at 22:32
RhyoliticYou have to get 5xp points with each of the 5 backpacks. Meaning a total of 25xp in 1 life. Not 5xp then just switching out backpacks.

Mobius EvalonI made a spreadsheet to keep track of all the requirements for this achievement that do not have to be done in one life.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1659LmNWQhDb09b-1d4I-...
(File>Make a copy or File>Download to edit your own copy)

Enter your current EXP at the top right and all of the challenges that are available to you will remove their greyed-out background. Simply fill in the red squares using the details from the multiplayer Statistics screen, and each red box will turn green when the requirements have been met.

lnertiatic ESPCan anyone confirm if the 'Win 10 times in each game type' can be done in custom matches? Can it be done solo or do you need at least 2 people? Siege and Demolition lobbies are dead at the moment.
