Brink Achievements

Not over till the fat lady sings

Take down an enemy with gunfire while knocked down   

Sometimes you will get knocked down but actually still be alive. Before you get up, kill an enemy. You get knocked down by melee attacks (not knife), explosives/grenades, or even by someone jumping down and landing on you (usually accidently).

Note: There is an ability called "Downed Fire" which lets you shoot while incapacitated. You must be Rank 5 to unlock it, but this ability is not required for the achievement, even though the achievement picture is the same as the ability picture.

Agreed, that was the first thing that popped into my head.
But hey, maybe they made something different or unique about it.

Looking at the videos and dev diaries, it seems like this will be like Last Stand. From what I can tell, whenever you get shot, you basically fall down and have 2 options - wait to respawn or get a medic to help you up. Of course, if someone shoots you while you're down, you'll die.

You can choose to unlock and use the skill that makes you shoot while you are downed.

Some people may not want to buy that skill. But hey, they're probably crazy not to.

@6 Agreed dude. Just because its a FPS doesn't mean it should be compared to cod

Why all the Last Stand hate?

#8 In my opinion you should, because cod is one of the few games that have this feature.
Why not compare it, because it looks very much the same and we aren't sure if it works the same way. It looks like the pistols doesn't do as much damage as in cod so the problem is probably solved.

You should absolutely compare it to Cod, and Halo for that matter.

For most people Cod and Halo are the defining FPS on the market, which means those are the standards every game should be held too.

That said I hate Halo anyways and believe Brink will neuter any desire for me to play Black Ops again..

At least in this game it's more fun to work as a team

The only thing this has in common with CoD is that it's similar to Last Stand and is in a FPS. You can compare this to CoD, definitely. But not the whole game. On the contrary, the most depicting feature of CoD is its one hit kills. Completely absent here. One gets points for damage done and objectives completed, not for killing.

The only thing that bugs me with this cheevo is that if someone downs you whats
to stop them from putting a couple more bullets in you to kill you?

Clearly you have not watched the videos, nor have many of you. You can knock people down by running up to them and doing a slide kick kind of motion. They're not incapacitated or anything. This achievement is for taking out a guy while being simply knocked down, not for entering a 'last stand' mode. Don't compare Brink to CoD.

When you are actually in that last stand kind of mode, you can't really shoot anyone. The only reason they put that is so you have the chance of being healed by a medic on your team. You just lie there unless a medic comes along, or you can choose to just die

reminds me more of Second Wind from Borderlands personally.

Sorry to say but it will be a last stand but nothing like mw2 as it seems like on the videos but i like it will be a little harder to kill someone in tyhe knock out rather then last stands but well will see on 5/10/2011

@8 There is no seperate story mode/multiplayer mode. The developers have stated many many times they are "blurring" the two.

Gentleman, let me clear up the 'like last stand' 'how to shoot while down' and 'how do you do this?' with one explination.
under 'universal abilitys' there is one ability titled 'downed fire' and with downed fire being down does, in fact, turn being incapacitated into 'last stand' but there's a trade off. when downed and helpess your character has more health, which gives the medic a better chance to get to you, and the enimies needing to give you a well placed shotgun blast to keep you down. although with downed fire you have much less health, which means with downed fire you have a chance to take an enemy down with you, but your odds of a medic helping you up is heavily reduced.

any further questions?

@20 Yeah, watch the third get SMART trailer and explain how that works with the melee knocks you down thing they discuss.

we'll wait.

To get this achievement someone needs to knock you over with a slide melee, if you get shot down you can't shoot

@22 Thats not the only time you can shoot downed.

Hey!!!! I just got this cheevo by accident. You don't have to be incapacitated, you can also get it by killing someone while you've been knocked down by a melee attack or a grenade.

This achievement isn't from "last stand" it's from being knocked down by a grenade blast or melee, and killing someone before standing back up.

yes the one true king is correct

Got it the same was as OneTrueKing. Just have to be knocked over from melee or grenade.

Read #26/29. THAT's HOW YOU GET IT.
I don't know if you can also get it with the universal ability that allows you to shoot while incapped, but the actual way to get this is when the enemy slides at you, KNOCKING YOU DOWN, you shoot at them and kill them. There is a bit of a time limit on it, as you get up pretty soon after being knocked down.

If you had to have the Downed Fire ability to get this achievement, you couldn't even get it until you reached rank 5.

Man, I can't believe most of the people don't understand this...

@25 You must be someone I've head-shotted after you downed me. ;)

When you get knocked down, don't move and wait till someone comes along and just shoot them and get them down and there you go.

I don't know if anyone has posted this, but I don't feel like reading if they did. This is unlocked by being knocked down (melee'd, grenade explosion, etc.) and you kill them before you stand back up. You don't need to max your rank out and buy anything, just shoot them before you hop back up
