One Gun – 40g
Beat the game using only the Plasma Cutter
This one takes a little bit of skill and patience. Not as hard as it looks. Very self explanatory. Some tips I would suggest are to conserve your ammo and health. Try not to spend any credits on anything other than med packs and Plasma Energy. Use any obtainable nodes on your Cutter alone to ensure you can use it to it’s max potential against hard foes/boss battles, and your Rig to make sure you have a sturdy amount of health to hold you down throughout the game.

Brawler – 10g

Kill at least 30 enemies with a melee attack
Very simply. A very easy tactic for this achievement is to simply Statis an enemy and melee him to death. Do this 30 times and the achievement is yours. Death to an enemy caused by curbing also counts towards this achievement.

Maxed Out – 75g
Upgrade all weapons and equipment
This one here will take alot of patience. I acquired this one in my third playthrough. The best thing I can suggest is to of course use your nodes wisely, maybe taking it one qeapon/equipment at a time. I found this easy to do by just going through the game with your Plasma Cutter and keeping only health and Plasma Energy. This way, by getting other type of ammo/unneeded items, you can sell them and increase yoru credits you buy more nodes for upgrading. Note, upon upgrading your weapons, the node screen does not have to be fully light to count was a fully upgraded weapon. For example, if you are upgrading your Cutter and have ll the main stats maxed for it, but you have maybe one or two nodes that are blank empty, it is ok to leave it blank as long as the gun/equipment itself is fully maxed, stat wise.

Ragdoll Check – 5g
Force an enemy into a Gravity Panel 5 times
This is very easy and actualy fun to do. In Chapter 4 you will go into a room with Gravity Panels on the floor(they are noticabel because they are blue panels on the ground that emmit gravity into the air, launching anything that crosses it. Simply lure 5 different enemies into the panel, i.e, have them chase you.. The panel will launch the enemy into the air, instantly killing it. Do this 5 times and the achievement is yours.

The Peng treasure is obtainable in Chapter 11. In the large room where you have to move the marker, in the center of the room where your ship used to be, there is a deep ditch in the middle of the two walkways. Look down in the ditch and you should see an object that is almost in the shape of a needle. Use your Kinesis to the item to bring it to your possession. This is Peng’s Treasure and once you acquire it the achievement will unlock. Aside from a nice 15 point achievement, the item also goes for 30k at the store.

Bloody Showers

Secret Achievements

Exterminator – 15g
Kill the Leviathan
The Leviathan is the boss that is located in Chapter 6. Fair simply as his techniques are not difficult at all. Be sure to take out his large tentacles(if you may call it). Once his 3 tentacles are away, his mouth will become visible. Simply shoot at it repeatedly to do massive damage. He will eventualy bring out another 3 set of tentacles. This time you can just concentrate on the mouth and again, do as much damage as possible. There are also explosive canisters in the room that can help you as well. He is fairly easy and in no time this will be yours.

Kill a Brute – 15g
Kill a Brute
You first encounter the Brute in Chapter 4. He is very simply to take down. As he charges towards you, use your Stasis to slow him down, then go behind him and shoot at his back, which is where he is vulnerable at. Rinse and repeat and the beast will fall and your achievement will rise.

Mindless Prey – 30g
Kill the Hive Mind
Self explanatory. The Hive Mind is the final boss at the end of Chapter 12. Fairly simply techniques to do that will award you the victory. Make sure you have a good amount of ammo and health to keep you in the battle. At the start of it, aim for his yellow pus targets one by one. Once you have taken out 4 out of the 6, he will grab you with a tentacle and a you will be forced to destroy the last two will dangling upside down on the tentacle. Just be sure to have quick aim. Once you have taken out the last two, you will be tossed on the ground and hi sstomach will open up revealing more yellow pus targets. Eliminate them one by one will dodging his tentacles that come down on you. He attempts to hit you with them 4 times before opening his stomach again. Left tentacle first, then right, left again, followed by one more right. Dodge them all four then wail at his stomach. After all his yellow pus targets are destroyed, the achievement will be yours.

Playing Catch – 10g
Catch a Brute or Leviathan Pod using Kinesis
Very easy to do and is easily obtainable in the Leviathan boss battle. The Leviathan will throw pods at you from his mouth. Simply use Kinesis on a pod and the achievement is yours. Nothing more to it.

Don’t get cocky, kid – 10g
Survive the ADS Cannon with over 50% shield strength remaining
This achievement is actually one of the more rather difficult and challenging achievements in the game. Alot of patience and skill is needed for this one. My best strategy I would suggest is to not fire with both triggers as you will heat the cannons quicker, leaving you vulnerable. Fire with the left or right triggers alone to all asteroids except the larger ones that break into multiple asteroids. For those, fire with both triggers to eliminate the multiple asteroids faster. If there are lot of asteroids on screen, I would advise that you concentrate on the bigger asteroids as thety deal greater damage to you, and let the little asteroids hit you(only if you have alot of oncoming asteroids). There is a save station before the battle, so if you fall below 50%, you can always quit and load up the game as much as you want.

Kickin It – 10g
Escape from a Lurker’s grab attack 10 times
Lurker’s are the little creatures that appear to have been children. They attack by swinging at you with three tentacles on their backs and shoot barbs at you. Get as close to one as you can so they jump at your face. Press A as fast as you can to escape it’s grab attack. Do this to 10 different Lurkers and the achievement will be yours.

Get off my ship! – 15g
Kill the Slug Boss
The Slug Boss battle is in Chapter 8. Similar to the ADS Cannon mission, you must use your same tactics as before, but now on a boss battles. He is fairly simply. Just aim at his yellow pus targets on his tentacles with the cannon. Destroy all his tentacles and the Slug Boss will fall and the achievement will be yours. Be careful as he tends to throw explosive canisters at you in attemtps to bring down your hull.

Slugger – 10g
Kill the Slug Boss with more than 50% shield strength remaining
This one I found not to be as difficult as the “Don’t get cocky, kid” achievement. I actually acquired this achievement on my first attempt without knowing this was actually a secret achievement. My tips are to be mostly aware of the canisters/asteroids that come at you. Destroy them as soon as possible. You have to survive with 50%+ hull and defeat the Slug Boss to acquire this achievement. This sounds difficult but actually is not as hard as it seems. Unlock the first cannon mission, there are not as much oncoming objects hitting you at once. There is a save station before the battle, so if you fall below 50%, you can always quit and load up the game as much as you want.
