Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus achievement guide & roadmap

 

There are fourmissable achievements to get during a playthrough; {{Crippled but Able}} at the beginning, "I'm Machine Enough" in the New Orleans level, {{Kick It}} during the Venus mission and {{Taste of Your own Medicine}} at the end.

The hardest difficulty is required for one achievement; {{Mein leben}}, which you have to complete the game on a lower difficulty first for. This is nigh on impossible; super hard difficulty in hardcore/permadeath mode. Yeah.

I'm Machine Enough

In the mission "New Orleans", after climbing the ladder you'll be sitting on a Panzerhund - rush the level without killing anyone on the "Bring 'Em On" difficulty or higher. Make sure you don't run enemies over. The achievement will unlock when you enter the sewers.

This is missable because there is no Panzerhund if you revisit the district after the story.

Note this is much easier if you just get off the Panzerhund and complete the segment on foot. Even more so if you are only on the Bring It On difficulty.
