Alien Breed: Impact Team 17 - PC - 360 - PS3 - 2010 Achievements Guide


This guide will help you to unlock achievements for the game Alien Breed: Impact for PC, 360 and PS3. I've played the game on Steam, so don't expect me to be as accurate as I could be for PS3 version.

I must also thank the site PS3 trophies for its existence and its explanations about missing achievements on STEAM: http://www.ps3trophies.org/game/alien-breed-impact/trophies/

This guide will be published on:

  • Version 1.0 - 24th September 2011: Publication of the guide.

Achievements (all platforms)

Campaign Veteran

  • Objective: Complete all single player levels 1-5.

Just play the five levels in the single player campaign in any difficulty. If you're playing for the first time, play it on Easy. The only difficult part is the final boss. Just attack the secondary heads when they're done and use the same tactic on the main head.

Another little tip is to destroy on level 5 desactivated sentries, once online, they'll turn hostile towards you.

Against the Odds

  • Objective: Complete all single player levels 1-5 on elite difficulty.

Elite is the hardest level when it comes to difficulties. So be sure to spend your credits on Hardened Armors and Ammo (I didn't buy so much health kits, perhaps one or two). Don't run, clear everything, search through all lockers and all corpses for ammo and kits. Stay calm and try to retreat when you can in a area where you can kill quietly the aliens. Also, kill all eggs. Don't let a single one alive. Use also turrets where you think it can help a lot (play in Rookie first to make your opinions).

Ain't Got Time to Bleed!

  • Objective: Finish 'Interface' single player level without using health packs.

Interface is the last level and with a boss. So, bring with you a lot of Hardened Armors, they'll be the only items you'll use for healing (use them when you're in the red zone). And don't forget: Rookie is the best for less damage.

No Stone Unturned

  • Objective: Find all 'secret' collectibles.

The secret collectibles are just the word Intex in blue and rotating on itself. They're easy to find compared to Alien Breed Assault and Descend but still, you can miss them.

  • LEVEL 1: If you're like me, you're gonna head for an Intex Terminal in a room with narrow halls. And you'll find your first secret in it. Seriously. So, guess the advice: check all Intex Terminals.
  • LEVEL 2: Once you're in Sector D and in front of the door you need to blow up, there are red canisters on your right. Blow them up to unlock the path to two new rooms. The secret is in the second.
  • LEVEL 3: When you have to find a way to extinguish the fire in the security room, go ahead. Normally, your normal path will be to the right. Don't do that. Just pass through the door leading to very narrow halls and go to the left. Follow the halls, just pay attention to the enemies and once you see the secret, collect it and come back. Don't forget that you can blow the canisters.
  • LEVEL 4: The secret is unfortunately in the exterior part of the game. So, once you're arrive in a room with an oxygen point and a sort of gyroscope, just don't pass the door but use the panel near it. The secret will arrive through an elevator.
  • LEVEL 5: When you're going to lauch the vent system, when you've passed the hall with the outside passage way, you'll see a single red canister. Blow it up and get an Hardened Armor and the last secret.

Elite Force

  • Objective: Without the player taking damage, kill 50 aliens in single player.

You need to kill 50 aliens without loosing life. It's easier to do it on Rookie in the first level or the second one. But you can also use an Hardened Armor and kill them with it: even if the aliens touch you, it's not counting as a damage taken (you're not loosing health). Don't ask me why but I got that one with an Hardened Armor on and with several aliens inflicting damage to it.

Fighting Light

  • Objective: Finish any single player level without using an item.

Well, be on Rookie and don't use any item from the list below during the first level. Don't forget to preserve your health and don't hesitate to sell items. Don't do it during your first playthrough, first, you need to know the level.

Items that can't be used:

  • Health kits (Small and Large)
  • Grenades (Frag and Stun)
  • Armor
  • Sentry

Break Out the Arsenal

  • Objective: Fire every weapon and use every item in single player.

Just use every weapon and item you have. Here is a list of them:

Blaster (your pistol) Small Health Kit
Assault Rifle Large Health Kit
Shot Cannon Frag Grenade
Flamethrower Stun Grenade
Laser Rifle Armor
Ion Spike Sentry

Knowledge is Power

  • Objective: Collect all logs through out the game.

Logs are diaries, well, not really in Impact but if you play Descent and Assault, some of them are clearly written by survivors (you bet that they're dead now, as the game is set 300-400 years after the Aguirre Incident).

You begin already with these:

  • Theodore J. Conrad (background on your character)
  • MIA (your Synth friend)

Here are the locations of the logs - Level 3 doesn't contain one:

  • LEVEL 1
    • When you're trying to bring the reactor down, you'll come in a hall with cadavers and enemies. Normally, the game should let you know how to handle logs.
    • Near one of the Intex Terminals (before making some red canisters explode to make a way towards the next room)
    • After opening a door through its console, you follow a dark hall. You can't miss it as it's on your path.
  • LEVEL 2
    • In the beginning, when you've cleared the first room, instead of following the medic, just go on the room on your left.
    • In the square room when following the medic. You can see smoke and electricity on its center.
    • When you're finally in the Command Room (you have active turrets in it), just go in the room on the right of the Intex Terminal.
    • Still in the same area, in the room next to the one where the medic is hiding.
    • In one of the rooms where you have to activate the turrets when saving your first groups of survivors.
  • LEVEL 4
    • In a room just before an Intex Terminal.
  • LEVEL 5
    • In the room between Server 02 and Turbine 02 (a survivor from the Leopold managed to get there but is sucked by an enemy).

Team Veteran

  • Objective: Complete 'Hydroponics' in Co-op Assault.

Complete the last level in Co-op, set in the Hydrophonics level, with someone. Well, I suppose that one of you can die but it's better that both get in that elevator in order to get it.

Hard to Kill

  • Objective: Finish a multiplayer level with no player losing a life.

The goal here is to play with a friend and to finish one of the levels without dying. The first one, set in the Medical Bay, is probably the easier to do. None of you must die else the achievement is doomed. Look at the health of your comrad with the lights on his/her armor: if you're still in good shape and your friend is red, let him/her take the next medikit or buy one from the store.

STEAM achievements

Time to Party

  • Objective: Complete 3 Co-op Assault multiplayer games

Despite the fact that it's called Co-op, you can earn this achievement by playing three missions in solo. That achievement is still bugged.

It was added for the Steam Summer Camp, earning it gave you a ticket. Note that Alien Breed: Assault could be bought for three tickets, in other words, it was a free game.

PS3 trophies

Cash is King

  • Objective: Achieve a balance of 30000 credits or more.

It is not cumulative, so, play on Easy (or Rookie) and once you have enough items to sell, sell them at an Intex Terminal. Don't buy anything too.

For a better strategy, read: http://www.ps3trophies.org/game/alien-breed-impact/guide/#

Break a Few Eggs

  • Objective: In single player Story mode, destroy 50 alien eggs using melee.

When you arrive at level 4, eggs will begin to spawn and you'll find also them in the last level. Use your melee attack to destroy them.

Tooling Up

  • Objective: Purchase an upgrade (or witness another player doing this).

Well, don't bother witnessing someone doing it because once you get enough money, you can upgrade one of your weapons at the Intex Terminal. And you'll probably do it without thinking, so, it's very easy.

Saving the Day

  • Objective: In single player Story mode, save the game using the Intex Terminal.

If you can't get it, it means that you're doing a game without saving at the Intex Terminal. You can unlock it after a few minutes, as you'll find one near your point of departure...

Pure Pawn

  • Objective: In single player Story mode, sell 10000 credits worth of items or ammunition.

You need to have a good inventory to sell all that (a lot of hardened armors, turrets, etc..). But well, if you can combine it with Cash is King, it's the best thing to do: after getting your 30000 credits, you can buy all items back and sell them again.


  • Objective: Kill 5 aliens with one shot (or witness another player doing this).

If people can do this with the IonSpike (as it's burning enemies hit by it), you can also use a stun grenade and then throw a frag. The Medical Bay or the beginning of Chapter 4 can be a good choice.


  • Objective: Kill 10 aliens with one shot (or witness another player doing this).

If people can do this with the Ion Spike (as it's burning enemies hit by it), you can also use a stun grenade and then throw a frag. The Medical Bay or the beginning of Chapter 4 can be a good choice.


  • Objective: Stun 5 aliens with one stun grenade (or witness another player doing this).

If you're using the tactic of the "stun than frag" for Deadly, you should get Shocking in the same time.


  • Objective: Stun 10 aliens with one stun grenade (or witness another player doing this).

If you're using the tactic of the "stun than frag" for Massacre, you should get Electrifying in the same time.

Killing Spree

  • Objective: Within 30 seconds kill 20 aliens in single player.

Well, it sounds hard but trust me, when you have little aliens coming towards you, as they're going down pretty quickly, you should get it without even thinking. So don't think about it and just play your game.

Born to Kill

  • Objective: Kill 25 aliens in single player.

If I say that you just need to play a few minutes to get it, will you really believe me? Well, you should because it's perhaps a secret trophy but it's an easy one.

Big Spender

  • Objective: Purchase the Damage upgrade for the Ion Spike.

The Ion Spike is found in the level 4 of the game and you need 10 000 credits to buy that upgrade. So, well, play on Rookie because on Elite, you'll spend your credits on ammo and useful stuff.


  • Objective: Break the glass in a window (or witness another player doing this).

Just play the first level in single player: the game will order you to break a window...


  • Objective: In single player Story mode, kill one of each type of alien.

Well, it's easy: just play the game and you get that one. Normally, at the end of Level 3, you should see this one pop up. The Charger is counted as an enemy but not the final boss.

Just Browsing?

  • Objective : In single player Story mode, spend 30 minutes or more in the Intex Terminal menus.

You know the easiest way to do it? Just get in an Intex Terminal, put your paddle down, let the game run and for 30 minutes, do something else: eat, watch TV, watch a DVD, surf on Internet, write, do your homework, do a little nap, etc... Come back after 30 minutes and you have it.


  • Objective: In single player Story mode, take 500 damage without dying.

As you don't need it to do it in a level, just have a lot of health packs and let the enemies damage you. You can also try it on Elite (I managed to survive enough time in Elite - if I was on PS3, I would have got it) but you can also use your frag or stun grenades on yourself...

The Completionist

  • Objective: Each and every trophy has been awarded. Congratulations!

Unlock all trophies to get this one.
