Duke Nukem Forever Achievement Guide

DNF Achievement Unlocks Guide

Most of the achievements in Duke Nukem Forever are quite self explanitory, for the more difficult ones, we've broken them down in this DNF achievement guide walkthrough. Remember to check out our DNF ego cap (boost) guide as well.

A Good Dam FightA Good Dam Fight

Defeat the Battlelord on the Hoover Dam

How to unlock the achievement:
This boss is quite easy as long as you find cover during his attacks. Simply grab the rocket launcher and unload on him while diving for cover. I found the Swat van near the entrance of the Dam provided the best cover.

Kill 100 aliens

Balls of SteelBalls of Steel

Earn a 1,000,000 pinball score in SP

How to unlock the achievement:

This one can be a little tricky. To get your score above 1,000,000 points, you'll need to make use of the 6x bonus multiplier. The bonus multipliers are activated near the top of the pinball once the three lights above the three bumpers are lit up at the same time. The easiest way to get the bonus is by using the tilt option (strafe left or right keys) when the ball is bouncing off the bumpers. Typically you're best to try to get the 6x bonus on your first ball, don't overdo the tilt or the machine will jam and you'll lose the ball. Once you get the 6x multipler, getting over 1,000,000 is really easy and it will come fast.

Carry the gold pistol through the whole SP campaign

How to unlock the achievement:

The gold pistol is picked up early in the Lady Killer casino near the start of the game. The easiest way to get this achievement is to play on the "Piece of Cake" difficulty level and fight your way through. Chapter select modes are okay as long as you beat every level with the gold pistol, you'll get the achievement. An important thing to note is that you CAN drop the gun during fights to load up on other weapons, just make sure you pick it back up before leaving/exiting the level.
