Blast From The Past!!
To get the achievement "Blast From The Past!", you must locate the HEV faceplate in Eli's Scrapyard. Right before the chapter "We Don't Go To Ravenholm..." you get the Gravity Gun from Alyx. When she tells you to get the barrels right above and beside you, pull them down and move them out of the way, then there should be a path where they were so you can get past, pile up some of the crates that are nearby right under the thing the barrels were in, climb them, and against the wall you should see a big square that says "HEV" on it, pick it up and say hello to 10 amazing G!
For the achievement "Vorticough" you must find
the Vortigaunt in the hidden cave on the chapter "Water Hazard". The cave is right after the part where you destroy the Hunter Chopper. Drive a little, then you will come to the part of the mission where you drive up a jump and land near a red warehouse. Kill the inhabiting Combine Soldiers and get all the Health and Suit you can, as you'll soon find out why. Get back to your Airboat and drive it around until you find a wall with 2 pipe entrances, the one to the left should be popped open a little, but it's too high for you to reach. Turn your Airboat so the back end is directly below the pipe. This may take a few tries, but you must jump on the Airboat and run up the top and hop into the pipe, now believe me, easier said than done. Now, you will be on a patch of dirt and ahead of you will be a ton of Toxic Water, and this is where the Health and Suit come in, pull LB to sprint through the Water, then there should be a chunk of wall missing to the left near the end of the pipe, turn and keep sprinting, then you should be on a patch of dirt and there will be a Vortigaunt standing by a fire singing, walk up to him and you will get an amazing 13g!
