Orders

"Orders" are this game's achievement system. There are 185 Orders in the game, some for simple things such as completing a File, some for very complex things. You'll receive a notification whenever you complete an Order, and you'll need to access the Orders section under Status in the Legatus Menu to receive the reward for completing the Order.

Whenever you access the Orders menu, click the Right Stick to sort the menu via the completed orders first, which will make it easier to get through the clicking.

Here is the list of orders. I don't intend to list rewards, because you can look at the list at almost any time in the game and look them up. The rewards even remain listed after you claim them for reference.

Also, this list may contain SPOILERS for some aspects of the game. I suggest not seriously looking at this list until you complete the story.

Combat
Chimeradicator Lv. 1Defeat 100 Chimeras.A tall order, but you'll be dealing with plenty in the post-game Cases. Every time you hit a milestone, speak to Billy, typically found wearing his sunglasses on the Heliport, and he'll give you an additional reward.
Chimeradicator Lv. 2Defeat 800 Chimeras.
Chimeradicator Lv. 3Defeat 3000 Chimeras.
Itemaniac Lv. 1Use 30 Items.As you improve, you'll probably find yourself using fewer items. Don't be afraid to just camp outside a vending machine, fill up your inventory with its stock, then just chug over and over.
Itemaniac Lv. 2Use 300 Items.
Round Sword MasterUse this Skill 30 times.Make sure you use these in combat, not just when standing around. Some of these rack up "uses" for each enemy they hit. Round Bullet, I've observed, racks up quickly in big groups.
Triple Sword MasterUse this Skill 30 times.
Slow Shot MasterUse this Skill 30 times.
Air Shot MasterUse this Skill 30 times.
Gravity Storm MasterUse this Skill 30 times.
Round Bullet MasterUse this Skill 30 times.
Howl MasterUse this Skill 30 times.

Blue Shield MasterUse this Skill 30 times.
Hit Rush MasterUse this Skill 30 times.These are the Skills that all Legions have access to and it accumulates regardless which Legion uses them.
Auto-Bind MasterUse this Skill 30 times.
Speed Star MasterUse this Skill 30 times.
Sync Keep MasterUse this Skill 30 times.
Power Charge MasterUse this Skill 30 times.
Sync Attack MasterSync Attack enemies 30 times.You have to connect with the attack for these to count.
Chain Jump Attack MasterChain Jump into enemies 30 times.
Chain Counter MasterChain Counter enemies 30 times.Remember that sometimes even enemies just moving fast can be chain countered. They don't have to have that aura that shows where they'll charge, but it does help.
Finishing Move MasterPerform Finishing Moves 30 times.
Fusion MasterPerform Legion Fusion 10 times.Remember this is a late-game ability. If you're looking to push this ahead, buy a ResoMax from Brenda.
Stealth Bind MasterPerform Stealth Binds 30 times.Even with only three major stealth sections in the game (one optional), this can be done with repeats. This registers regardless of whether you use the prompt to stealth bind.
Simply StunningStun enemies 30 times.There are a lot of ways to stun enemies, but the simplest is the Beast Legion's Howl.
Baton ManiacCause 50,000 damage in Baton Mode.
Blaster ManiacCause 50,000 damage in Blaster Mode.
Gladius ManiacCause 50,000 damage in Gladius Mode.
MultitaskerDefeat three or more Chimeras at the same time five times.One of the best ways to accomplish this is using the Arm Legion's Gravity Storm to gather enemies, then switch to Axe Legion and drop a Crash Bomb amidst them. Best if done on small Gel Chimeras. Does not work with Aberrations.
SharpshooterGet ten headshots with the Arrow Legion.
Absolute K-9 UnitTrack ten scents with the Beast Legion.You might have to repeat a couple to get this. Make sure that you let the Beast Legion complete his animation tracking it to the endpoint. Don't switch to digging up the item before he finishes and marks the spot.
Armed and DangerousThrow ten objects with the Arm Legion.
Parry ProfessionalParry ten times with the Axe Legion.It says "parry", but really this is just using Perfect Call with the Axe Legion specifically.
Ted's Best CustomerDefeat five enemies with Combat Items.You don't actually have to buy them from Ted. Just use Grenades or Drones on weakened enemies to finish them off.
Collection

Supply Snatcher Lv. 2Open 120 Supply Crates.
Supply Snatcher MaxOpen all 327 Supply Crates.
Finders Keepers Lv. 1Find a Dropped Item.Dropped Items are the ones that have a small blue aura around them on the ground when you get close, or are bright blue shiny points high up in inaccessible areas that can be shot down with the Arrow Legion. Items that enemies drop do not count towards this.
Finders Keepers Lv. 2Find all 152 Dropped Items.
Excavator Lv. 1Dig up a Buried Item with the Beast Legion.There are a lot of items that the Beast Legion can dig up, but these are twenty-three very specific items that are indicated in each File's Collection section in the guide.

Red Matter ReducerClean up 1000 chunks of Red Matter.
Red Matter Remover: File 01Clean up 80% of the File's Red Matter.The cleanup must be done on a single run-through of the File. Be aware that some Files, particularly File 09, have a rather small amount of Red Matter, and mostly in side areas. Still, if you're committing to fully exploring the areas, these milestones shouldn't be too difficult to hit.
