8. Above and Beyond - Complete all Accolades for all Missions.
Accolades are challenges for each campaign mission, you will have around 15 to 17 accolades in each mission for a total of 176 Accolades. Each Accolade requires a specific task to earn it. You can check every mission's accolades at the Safehouse in the mission select section. Once you complete the game it will be the best time to clean up any unearned Accolades, you will find out that there are some Accolades required specific kills in certain points and some want you to get a high score in a mission. You don't have to complete the entire mission to save any recently earned accolades, instead of that you can just quit to the main menu when you complete any Accolades and the game will auto-save your progress, also when you die after completing the Accolade your progress will be saved. Here are some tips on Accolades in general:

  1. Accolades can be checked and the progress for some can be tracked during a mission by checking the Accolades menu upon pausing the game.
  2. Once a challenge is completed, it will stay that way even if you die, restart or quit the mission. However, if you made partial progress to a challenge and died, your progress will be reset to what it was at during your last checkpoint. For example, the "Clear Skies" accolade in the first mission requires you to shoot down 4 VTOLs with a mounted turret. If you passed a checkpoint with 1 VTOL kill then got two more and died, it will be reset back to 1 instead of kept at 3.
  3. Be sure to carry a grenade in case to mess up an area specific accolade. That way you can kill yourself and restart from an earlier checkpoint as there is no option (yet) to restart from the last checkpoint. Be sure to remember the above tip when doing so.

There is a video playlist for all the locations of the Accolades in the game with a guide to complete each one:

9. Grim Reaper - Neutralize 2,000 hostiles.
This decoration will come naturally while going for other decorations, you need to get 2,000 kills in campaign to earn it.

10. Duty Calls - Complete all Campaign Challenges.
There are 33 Challenges for the campaign and you can at any time check your challenge progress by opening the main menu, selecting challenges, and then choosing campaign. Most of them aren't too difficult but are time consuming, usually involving using certian Cyber Cores to kill enemies.

Unlike Accolades which are level specific, challenge progress can be made in any mission at any time. Since you cannot check your challenge progress in the middle of a mission, here is a complete list:

  2. New World - Complete "New World"on Hardened difficulty or higher
  3. In Darkness - Complete "In Darkness"on Hardened difficulty or higher
