Probably the most grinding and labor intensive set of achievements, you must obtain gold on all 30 stats. To access your stats, pause the game and go to the Social Hub and select "Stat Awards". If you don't already have any DLC, I highly recommend at least investing in the Zodiac Tournament DLC as it adds two new easy Stat Awards; which will allow you to bypass two more that may be giving you trouble.

Silver Requirement | Gold Requirement

Overall: Total Stat Awards: 50 | 75
You will unlock this through natural progression.

Fluid Striker: Freerunning Attacks (Includes vault attacks and disarms): 25 | 50
Replay the mission, "Mrs. Chu's Revenge". During the chase with Ratface, you will be in a garage looking area with enemies that have firearms and are behind cover. Get into cover and then vault over obstacles into enemies. This will both disarm them and kill them. Keep reloading until the award is obtained.

Head Hunter: Headshots: 25 | 50
From the first time you obtain a gun, aim for the head.

Lucky Shooter: Blind-fire Kills: 5 | 10
Take cover and fire, do not aim down the sight.

Replay the mission, "Funeral". Once you kill the enemy with the grenade launcher, take it and kill everyone with it. Reload if necessary.

Sniper: Accuracy: 30% | 50%
While you are in shooting driving sequences, everything will go into slow-mo giving you an advantage towards your accuracy. Or you can get this by hardly missing any enemy while you have a firearm in some missions, just watch your aim.

You will unlock this through natural progression.

Having the Leg Breaker melee move is essential for this. To perform a Leg Breaker, grapple an enemy and tap X once and then press X and hold.

Environmentalist: Environmental Kills: 25 | 50
When grappling an enemy, check your surroundings for objects that are glowing red. Either run the enemy into the object, or get them close enough so that you are able to press B to trigger the environmental kill.

Handyman: Melee Weapons Kills: 25 | 50
An easy melee weapon to find is the Tire Iron, found in the trunks of cars. Or melee weapons you pick up from enemies. This should come through natural progression.

Disarming: Disarms: 25 | 50
Replay the mission, "Mrs. Chu's Revenge". During the chase with Ratface, you will be in a garage looking area with enemies that have firearms and are behind cover. Get into cover and then vault over obstacles into enemies. This will both disarm them and kill them. Keep reloading until the award is obtained.

Go to the Cockfight in Kennedytown. Save your game before talking to the man at the gate. Bet the highest amount $100, 000 on whatever rooster you picked. If you win the bet, back out and save, and bet again. If you lose, don't save, just load up your previous save. Write this one off if you get the Zodiac Tournament DLC.

You should get this naturally, if not then cruise around Hong Kong looking for a cop car. Crash into it and they should speed after you. Don't attempt to lose them, just keep dragging them with you until the stat award is achieved.

Rogue Cop: Cops Killed Above Heat Level 1: 25 | 50
Punch a cop and run away, this should automatically cause Heat Level 2. If not, walk up to a cop with your gun out. Try to find an area that's populated with many cops, and back yourself into a corner or take cover behind your car. This will come rather quickly.

Public Enemy: Most Kills In One Play Session: 100 | 200
This one will come easily if you're playing a long session and completing a lot of missions. Otherwise, head to the "Death by A Thousand Cuts" event and knock out some enemies in fast succession. Once you die/if you die, no sweat. The amount you've killed still adds to your total, just play the event again until the stat award is achieved.

The two stat awards in the Zodiac Tournament DLC are fairly simple. One is for collecting the Opal statues, and the other is for throwing your opponents into environment props. You will unlock the Opal Statue locations once the DLC story is completed.
