Defeat Stage 2 G using the crane only once. The fight against him is at the final part of the Sewers. Shoot him down 2 or 3 times to make sure that the first crane use is also his last. If he gets knocked down that means you got the achievement.

In The Blink of an Eye
Defeat Super Tyrant with 5+ minutes left until detonation. This is in Leon's campaign Mr. X in his final form will come at you, just down him as fast as possible. After receiving enough damage Ada will send you a rocket launcher to finish him off.

Destroy a Mr. Raccoon. First, go to the S.T.A.R.S. office like below picture:
Using the photo hints, find 2 hidden items. First you need to get to the Workroom in the Sewers and get the roll film called "Hiding Place". Then you must head to the Dark Room back in the Police Station. Do not worry you will find a shortcut to it around the room where you found the roll film, assuming you have already the T-Bar Valve Handle. Once you reach it, reveal the film to get 2 pictures containing different places for you to loot, being those the Press Room, and the STARS Office. Do a quick search of the desks and you should get your rewards as well as this achievement.
Read all of the files.

Everything else that doesn’t fit into the other categories.
