The Covert Action Achievement in Mass Effect 2: Arrival downloadable content
Our Mass Effect 2 The Arrival DLC Achievements & Trophies guide lists every Achievement & Trophy for this final Xbox 360, PS3 and PC downloadable content that concludes the Mass Effect 2 storyline and tells you how to get them.

This DLC costs $6.99 for PlayStation Network, 560 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live Arcade or 560 BioWare Points on PC.


Earn the Achievement to get the corresponding amount of GamerPoints added to your GamerScore.

1. The Ultimate Sacrifice (50G) – Complete the Arrival DLC pack.
2. Last Stand (25G) – Survive all five waves in the battle for Object Rho. — During the first act of the downloadable content, you’ll be attacked at Object Rho. In order to proceed in the DLC you must eventually lose to your enemies. However, you will gain this Achievement if you can survive the wave… 5 waves to be exact. In order to earn the Achievement you must fill the status bar in the right side of the screen. If you lose to your enemies before it is full, you will not get the Achievement. To more easily take out the approaching waves, quickly head to a corner from the start and get behind cover. Kill the mech near the end as quick as you can. Good luck!

3. Covert Action (25G) – Rescue Dr. Amanda Kenson without attracting hostile attention. — You’ll get this Achievement by making it past three pairs or so of enemies without alerting them to your presence. Solid Snake style. For the first, shut down the energy fence using the nearby panel and climb atop the truck. The second and third can simply be walked past as they are in their respective rooms. Make sure to follow the catwalk around the room and take the door on the left immediately as the shuttle arrives; heading right may cause the guards to see you through the glass, even if they don’t move or fire upon you. When you talk to Kenson you should earn this Achievement. If you didn’t get it, reload and try again. Good luck!


Earn Bronze (3), Silver (0), Gold (0) or Platinum (0) Trophies to increase your Gamer Level.

1. Ultimate Sacrifice (Bronze) – Complete the Arrival DLC (‘Arrival’ downloadable content).
2. Last Stand (Bronze) – Complete all 5 waves in the battle for Object Roh (‘Arrival’ downloadable content).
3. Covert Action (Bronze) – Rescue Dr. Amanda Kenson without attracting hostile attention (‘Arrival’ downloadable content).
