  • Complete the game in less than 5 hours
  • Use no continues

  • No alert phases (cautions are allowed)
  • No special items (stealth, bandana)
  • Complete the game on The Boss Extreme


Upon fulfilling these criteria, you will unlock the following emblems:

You may earn these emblems too, without even trying:

Gecko Spend 1 hour in a wall press

Getting the Big Boss emblem, and by extension other less difficult emblems, unlocks the Desert Eagle w. Long Barrel, the Patriot and the Big Boss Face Camo. If you haven't already bought them from Drebin, you will also unlock the stealth Stealth Camo and the Bandana, as their respective requirements of not being spotted and not killing anyone must be met to obtain the Big Boss emblem. Alltogether, you will earn 10 million Drebin Points worth of items.
