Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm considering going for the "Virtually Impossible" achievement, but it would nice to know how much I need to do. If your answer broke down the number of missions per character and/sub-group that would be great.

Thanks!
