Ok, so I just finished the game and somehow I'm missing ONE document. I could've sworn I followed the collectibles thread to a T.
And looking at my -in-game stats is even more confusing. I tried to look at my documents in game and compare them to the listed ones in the collectibles thread. Being out of order is one thing but I only show 22 in my inventory?!? Yet it says I have 54?
What am I missing here?

Since I replayed the game from a NEW GAME, I thought I should mention a few things that might help someone trying to get ALL the medals in one run (you should "still" refer to the guide to make sure you don't miss something).
Read my last post in the Deep Breath Medal Will NOT Unlock thread. I already have all the achievements, but since I was replaying the game... I figured I'd try for everything again, anyway... just to see if certain medals were still being... "difficult!"
Also... I was able to get the "Stealth" medal using nothing but Sonic Rounds. I got the first guy (it takes 3 fully-charged sonic shots - and make sure you are crouched for stealth), who was setting the mine... then I just hid behind the crate until those other two were investigating the area - until they left. No matter how close they get to you... do NOT attack them or move: Just stay behind the crate under the hatch you dropped-in from! When they leave the area, creep out to where you can see both of them, and wait until one guy has left the area (and THEN some)... and when the other guy is about to go out of range, take HIM out! I got lucky. When that second guy was down (but not dead)... apparently the third guy came around to investigate what was happening (I couldn't see him)... and I shot at a barrel that I saw next to the second guy (full sonic charge) and it killed both of them: Stealth medal unlocked!
I also didn't get the "Supersonic" medal the first time... but I might have forgotten to reload a checkpoint... so just use Sonic Rounds ONLY the ENTIRE game. I was able to electrocute a guy by shooting an electrical panel he was near, then kill him with a head-shot from a fully-charged sonic round (I was about 8 or 10 feet from him). With him being shocked to death, I think that by the time the sonic round was fully charged and I shot him... he was so close to death that it was able to kill him - and I got the "Humanitarian" medal (killing a Malthusian while on fire or being electrocuted).
As for the "Geek" medal... don't let the countdown get too close to zero before the hack is complete! I never failed a hack when I played it the first time, but I got down to zero - AND completed the hack at the same time, a couple of times... and that may be the reason I didn't get the medal the first time. If it looks like you "might" run out of time, be ready to abort the hack ("B" button). As stated in the guide, aborting does not constitute a fail. I aborted a couple of times when I finally got the medal, so it's safe to do.
Good luck, people. I just wanted to share my game-playing techniques that worked... and to give this thread a bump, so it stays near the top (why doesn't this thread get stickied?)!

You will get the Mega Combo Medal eventually in the Challenge at the very end. So there is really no need to try the method you have posted. Better spare all those frustrating hours

If its OK I would suggest maybe being a bit more descriptive about the Medal here. The description "Swim down the elevator shaft into the next door" is a bit misleading. The elevator shaft has 2 doors in it that are submerged, and it reads like u have to go down to the bottom one after getting documents 22 & 23. I kept thinking it was the very bottom one I had to go down to. Instead the body you need to go to is the same one that has documents 22 & 23 on it. Just a thought.

I didn't want to create a new thread but would anyone help me with the Flood medal. I followed the directions from the OP and didn't shoot the cyclo A glass room, but no matter what I do I can not seem to get this medal and this is the last one I need to finish the achievements. Anybody mind reloading the beginning of Act 3 and seeing what they did step by step to get the medal (did you let in water from other rooms first or last, which rooms did you shoot first, second, did you kill the enemies in there). And does letting water in from the other rooms do anything? Any help would be appreciated because I wasted an hour trying to get this one, it seems I can fill the room nearly to the top save for a little space in certain places but it doesn't trigger the achivement.

- Open the first door in ACT 3 with cctv
- Break both glasses in the second room
- Open the door from room 2 to the large room with the shocking cables with cctv to flood it even more
- Open the door from the cable room to the next area at least twice to let the water flow,
- break three glasses (except for the cyclo-A door (first left when you enter that room)
- the medal will pop after you break the last glass window,

Second playthrough for missed medal
I'm need some help with starting a new playthrough. Basically, I followed this guide to get all the collectilbes and medals. I finished it and I didn't get the medal for making all my hacks successful first time.
So I need to start a new game. Now do I start a new game by going or new game, or, going on load game and selecting act 1?
I don't want to lose all the collectibles and medals I already have. I personnaly think if I click load game and select act 1, it'll still regonise all of the collectibles and medals I have from my previous game.
Am I right in thinking this?

This may have already been said, but since the update you no longer need 7000+ for mega combo, only 1500+, this could ofcourse be a glitch, but i have seen several other reports saying they got the medal after 1500, as did i.

I can't seem to get the big combo medal. I've tried both ways in the guide and nothing. This damn sonic gun takes too long to charge to keep a combo going and good luck shooting those powerlines in a rush to keep a combo going! edit: Just got it. Go into the challenge room after competing the game and get a combo score of 1500 and finish the round.
