Bloodstone 007

Author Notes

The game is a 3rd person shooter and includes some nice driving sequences which can break up the monotony which creeps in from time to time. The game also has achievement trackers, level selection and also details which collectibles you have; which makes the achievements a little more bearable.

Complete 007: Blood Stone on Recruit, Field Operative or Agent difficulty

This achievement is unlocked at the end of the game, just after shunting Nicole’s car into the crash barriers. For this achievement, and all other achievements which point towards this description I would suggest playing on recruit difficulty. This is the easiest and makes for an easy playing, yet fun, game. See “Blood From A Stone” for playing tips.

Complete 007: Blood Stone on the 007 difficulty

To unlock this achievement you must complete every level on the 007 difficulty. There are some hard parts which can cause a little annoyance but on the whole it is pretty straightforward as long as you play sensibly. Some key things to remember:

  • Stay in cover. The quickest way to die in this game is to get caught when not behind cover.
  • Save your focus aims. Focus aims can easily reverse a bad situation, so you want to be saving them and not just using them to progress through the game faster. Try to have at least 1 at any given time.
  • Aim for headshots. With every gun in this game a kill can be easily achieved by a single headshot, with any gun. Use this to your advantage and take an extra second or two to line up a headshot, rather than going with the spray and pray routine.
  • Use the cell phone. Bond has a nifty cell phone which turns your screen into a kind of x-ray in which enemies are red figures, giving you their exact location.

Level Specific

No Valet RequiredNo Valet Required
Destroy all the cars in the Yacht Club car park in Athens

Towards the end of the Athens mission you will enter into a car park with around 3-4 cars on your left and right. You will also be ambushed by a couple of enemies and as you move about 20 steps forward another car will pull up and more enemies jump out. Once you have dispatched all the goons just put a few shots into each car and watch it explode.

Destroy the elevator bringing reinforcements in the Istanbul tunnels

In the Istanbul level you will come to huge circular room with a round elevator shaft in the centre, once you’ve been in here a while an elevator will start to descend. Just shoot at the joist that is holding the cage to net this achievement.

Get through the Monaco casino gardens without being spotted

This achievement can be a little tricky but with a little thought and planning it can be easy. If you are spotted you can simply restart checkpoint and have another go.

Greek TragedyGreek Tragedy
Shoot the boat close to Greco’s yacht

Shortly into the first level you will be at the front of the boat you started on, look straight ahead and slightly to the left to see a small yacht. Shoot it a couple of times to blow it up.

Pedal to the MetalPedal to the Metal
Finish Refinery driving escape with full throttle and no brakes

This sequence comes up late in the Serbia chapter, just after Nicole has picked you up and you must chase down the train. This is a fairly easy achievement which I unlocked in a few tries. You can make use of the checkpoints and all you simply need to do is hold down :rt: and not touch any other button.

ShockingShocking
In Bangkok use the stun gun on 5 enemies

In this level the first bunch of enemies you come across you will need to perform a takedown on one of them, you will then have the stun gun. This is an easy achievement just make sure to aim your shots properly and take your time, as there are only around 8-9 shots for the stun gun throughout the level.

Shooting RangeShooting Range
Eliminate all enemies during the funicular lift sequence

This is achieved towards the end of the Burma mission. You will find yourself on a platform moving forwards and ascending at the same time. On your way up there will be several groups of enemies appearing on the left hand side, just take them all out to unlock this achievement. The lift moves very slowly and you have more than enough time to deal with the enemies.

No Claims BonusNo Claims Bonus
Drive to the bridge in the epilogue level without hitting any other vehicles

This is easiest to do on recruit difficulty as it will be very hard for Nicole to lose you, meaning you will be able to drive slower and more carefully. You can hit the crash barriers at the side of the highway and walls etc but you cannot hit another vehicle, if you do just simply restart checkpoint.

Air DefenseAir Defense
Shoot down all the missiles fired by the S.A.V.

After you have released some of the cargo off of the ship in the Serbia level you will be put in control of a mounted gun and you must shoot out some engines on a S.A.V. See video for help. This is easiest on recruit difficulty.

Speed RunSpeed Run
Finish the Istanbul driving chase in under 2 mins 59.4 secs

This is one of the more difficult achievements in the game and will take some determination to unlock it. There is no in-game timer and you aren’t able to resume from checkpoints, you must restart this entire section again.

Focus Aims, Melee Kills & Misc.

Sharp InstrumentSharp Instrument
Perform a Focus Aim kill shortly after a takedown

This is a very easy achievement and should pop without you even trying. If you are worried about it then as soon as you takedown an enemy (pressing :x: ) hold :lb: and you should auto-target an enemy, just pull :rt: to shoot and kill him.

Professional KillerProfessional Killer
Finish a level using the pistol as the only gun

During the Athens mission you are given a pistol to start which has unlimited ammo. I would suggest doing this achievement on this mission on recruit difficulty as it makes it very, very simple.

Free FallFree Fall
Throw 5 people off balconies

Shortly into the 3rd mission/Monaco you will come across to enemies talking to each other, then one will walk off and the other will move over to the left to lean on a balcony. Run up behind him and hit :x: to throw him over. Then reload your last checkpoint and repeat four more times.

00 Status00 Status

Disable 3 security cameras using Bond’s Smartphone

Close to the beginning of the Monaco level you will be given a little tutorial on how to disable CCTV cameras, within the next 10 minutes of gameplay this achievement will unlock. After you are given the tutorial you will also unlock the “00 Status” achievement.

Three Birds, one Blood StoneThree Birds, one Blood Stone
Perform a chain of 3 Focus Aim kills

I unlocked this achievement in mission 3/Monaco. After using stealth takedowns on the first few enemies I had three focus aims in no time and just performed a focus kill on the next three enemies. They do not have to be in quick succession, as long as you do not fire your gun/takedown an enemy in-between them.

Melee MasterMelee Master
Perform 3 takedowns in 10 seconds

This is best to try on recruit difficulty and can be achieved many, many times throughout the game. The first place to unlock this is in the first mission, when you come to a swimming pool with extravagant decorations and a poolside bar. Clear out the enemies here and very shortly after you will come to a door in which 3 enemies will burst through, quickly use a takedown on all 3 within 10 seconds and the achievement will unlock.

Focused KillerFocused Killer
Perform 80 Focus Aim kills

A focus aim kill is achieved when you hold :lb: to lock on to an enemy and then shoot at them just to finish them off, it will be a one shot kill. To gain a Focus aim you must perform a takedown on an enemy. See “Queensbury Rules” for information on takedowns.

Queensbury RulesQueensbury Rules
Perform 150 takedowns

A takedown is performed by pressing :x: when in melee range of an enemy, stealth takedowns and reach-over-cover takedowns count towards this achievement too.

Drag OffDrag Off
Perform 20 reach over cover takedowns

A reach over takedown is executed in the same way as a normal takedown. Except for this achievement you need to be in cover to use it and must also have an enemy within grabbing distance. Whether it be around a corner or over a bench etc.

Blind FuryBlind Fury
Eliminate 100 enemies using blind fire from cover

This should come naturally in one playthrough of the game. Just press :a: when near a piece of cover and fire at enemies without holding :lt: . This is easier on the recruit difficulty as you are still given a crosshair when using blindfire.

Silent RunningSilent Running
Perform 40 stealth takedowns

This achievement should come naturally as you play through the game but if you still haven’t unlocked it you can load up mission 1/Athens and you will start with an enemy in front of you. Run up to him and use a takedown without him realising you’re there (Stealth Takedown) and then restart checkpoint. Rinse and repeat.

There are a total of 50 intelligence items throughout the game which you have to scan using Bond’s smartphone. Once an intel item has been scanned it is safe to save & quit the level if the need arises. The “Full Recon” achievement is similar to this but it only needs you to find all of the intel in one level, which you should get when going for this achievement. See the link below for a guide to the collectibles.
