Major Mayhem Objective/Challenges Guide

promotion! Hard Man

This guide took longer to write than I expected. And it was longer than I expected. So I split it into two parts, the first 75 and then the final 75. These 75 objectives you can earn without having to spend money in the app-store, or purchasing the higher end weapons. The weapons I bought with the coins earned via objectives were the assault rifle, auto shotgun, P99, and sniper. Finishing these 75 objectives will earn you the Hard Man medal.

Get To The Chopper!

Rewards 50g. Accomplished after first briefing with President.

Remove Five Enemy Hats

Rewards 50g. Accomplished when you shoot off five enemy hats. Doesn’t have to be in a row. If having troubles due to fat fingers, use the sniper rifle. Otherwise, easy to do. Aim for baddies’s hats.

Get A Multiplier of x10

Rewards 50g. Get a couple chain kills in a row with the pistols, or two quick draws. Remember, multiplier is not the damage you dealt.

Get A Close Shave

Rewards 50g. Be bold and stay out of cover as a bullet heads towards you.

Deflect An Enemy Bullet

Rewards 50g. Fiddly to accomplish with the pistol, I think. Like A Close Shave, be bold and shoot at red projectiles. Try to do this one when enemies a further away.

Pick Up Some Armor

Rewards 50g. First get hit by a red projectile, or fall into spikes. Next, rescue a hostage. If injured, hostages always drop armor.

Rewards 50. Automatic Shotgun doesn’t count towards this objective.

Trigger Robo Mayhem Power Up

Rewards 50. Just like the other power up achievements.

Get Over 200 Damage In A Single Combo

Rewards 50. The faster weapon the better. The Plasma Rifle is my suggestion. If you don’t have the cash, the Assault Rifle and P99 will do just as well. If having troubles, try purchasing super bullets.

Get Dropped Off 3 Times

Rewards 50. You can restart a mission 3 times to complete the objective.

Climb An Object

Rewards 50. Most missions will give you this objective, especially Metropolis missions. Whenever you jump to another ledge, you are considered climbing an object.

Leap Onto The Chopper

Rewards 50. Basically, finish a mission. I’d suggest finish a briefing for the quickest access to a chopper.

Defeat An Enemy While Jumping

Rewards 50. Can only be done during a run and gun, or as you are moving from one ledge to another as as jets are flying by. This one is tricky, actually. Jumping and shooting at the same time isn’t easy to do. During Metropolis mission 8, while jumping from a ledge, I shot into the air andhit a jet. This did it for me.

Change Your Helmet

Rewards 50. Will have to purchase a helmet. Visit the armoury. I saved Purchase An Item From The Armoury for this.

Use A Continue

Rewards 50. You can buy one from the armoury. I haven’t seen a hostage drop one, but you can find a free one from completing objectives. A continue allows you to, well, continue your game if you were K.I.A..

Trigger The Super Bullets Power Up

Rewards 100. Buy from the armoury, pick up after saving a hostage, or win from objectives.

Win A Boss Fight

Rewards 100. The Dogs of War are the easiest boss to kill, in my opinion. They are Mission 15 in the Tropics.

Deflect An enemy Projectile While Running

Rewards 100. While doing Win A Boss Fight, I did this one. The first part of fighting the Dogs of War is a run and gun. So using the hero time power-up, and the P99 I quickly finished the objective. You don’t need to use hero time, it just helps out.

Fall To Your Death

Rewards 100. Metropolis missions leaves many opportunities to drop to drop the Major to his death. You only have to fall once.

Remove 50 Enemy Hats

Rewards 100. Easy.

Get A Triple Kill

Rewards 100. Easiest way to get this is through an explosive weapon. I had a hard time finding three enemies popping up near each other when I had grenades. Same troubles with barrels. If you don’t have the cash for an explosive weapon, use the air strike in Desert Mission 2 when you see the four baddies popping up from the tent.

Kill A Tank

Rewards 100. the Dogs of War tanks count for this objective. I killed them.

Defeat 100 Enemies With The Uzi

Rewards 100. I hate the Uzi because of its shitty accuracy and low clip size.

Get 10 Headshots In A Row

Rewards 100. The combo will break if you kill a baddie not with a head shot.

Complete A Mission Without Being Hurt

Rewards 100. If you’re having a hard time, replay Mission 1 in the Tropics.

Rewards 100. Automatic weapons include Uzi, P99, Assualt Rifle, Light Machine Gun, Plasma Rifle, Automatic Shotgun, Automatic Sniper, Automatic Launcher.

Defeat 10 Enemies With Barrel Explosions

Rewards 100. I went back to the Metropolis missions, since many of those missions have barrel. During the run and gun in Metropolis Mission 14 there are almost a dozen barrels you can explode to kill more than ten baddies.

Earn 5000 Mayhem From A single Damage Combo

Rewards 100. Feeling lazy, I purchased a bullet power-up, an airstrike and used the assault rifle. Didn’t use the airstrike. In the first section of Metroplis Mission 14, I reached 5000 mayhem with the bullet power-up. The beefy baddies take a lot of damage. Also, while exploding barrels in Mission 14 of the Metropolis I reached just under 10 000 mayhem without any power-ups.

Get 10 Close Shaves Without Being Hurt

Rewards 100. Tropics Mission 2, the projectiles are very slow. I allow one baddy who through projectiles to survive, and kept dodging.

Defeat 10 Enemies With Hand Grenades

Rewards 100. In Dessert Mission 9, there are eight baddies you can nail with hand grenades.

Collect 100 Coins In One Mission

Rewards 100. This one can be difficult, I found. Most Missions you can earn over fifty gold, including hostage rescues. Coins from objectives don’t count, but Mayhem awards do. Hostage rescues provide 10 coins. Baddies give 1 coin each, and vehicle kills earn you 5 coins. With the plasma rifle, you can earn huge Mayhem and score enough bonus coin to earn this objective.

Deflect 15 Enemy Projectiles

Rewards 100. Hero time, plus a plasma rifle or sniper will make this objective wasy to complete. What I did was wait behind cover, like the Close Shave objective, and deflect fifteen projectiles before moving on.

Kill 3 Hostages In A Row

Rewards 100. Finally! Rewarded for murdering the bearded freaks! Saving a hostage will reset the counter.

Shoot 10 Chickens

Rewards 100. Chickens are scattered through out the missions.

Defeat 10 Enemies By Shooting Through Objects

Rewards 100. When they duck behind walls, doors, etc you can shoot them with weapons that have the bility to shoot through walls. You can shoot through walls with the bullet power-up.

Defeat 100 Ninjas

Rewards 100. This will take about three Tropics Missions. Red Ninjas count towards the 100.

Rewards 100. Easy. Most missions you can earn at least 100 000 mayhem with the plasma rifle and a bullet power-up.

Take Cover 50 Times

Rewards 100. Whenever you pop out of cover to shoot and then hide again will count towards this objective.

Achieve A New High Score On Any Mission
