(Pause menu -> Statistics)

Beat all Transporter Pro times.

Look for a guerrilla action with a clock as the icon. Go to the location and steal the vehicle bringing it back to the target location within the pro time.

There are 300 ore mines throughout the game and are marked on your map by a small red dot. Check how far along you are in the statistics achievement progress menu.

 Free Your Mind (25 points)

EDF property consists of bases, vehicles, structures and supplies. Basically, if you can blow it up, it counts. You will get this through the course of the campaign.

 Power to the People (10 points)
Raise the Morale of 3 sectors to 100%.

I suggest when doing this achievement you start with the first 3 sectors to get it out of the way. All you have to do is for each sector is finish a couple side missions and then do the regular missions. For each mission you will get a certain amount of morale. If you press back to find the mission you can highlight it and it will tell you how much morale you will receive for completing the mission.

Remember that you only have to raise the morale to 100% once for each of the sectors, it doesn't matter if they drop in percentage as it still counts.
