View Full Version : "Stop! Futo Time!"

I have 980/1000 and this achievement seems to be eluding me. I am pretty sure I used Futo to dispatch at least one enemy in every level, but for some reason, I didn't get that achievement during level 8 where I would assume it pops up.

I went ahead and loaded each level starting with Ninja Mountain, in successive order, taking out one bad guy and then quitting. It still didn't pop up after doing that for every level. Do I have to not only attack and destroy an enemy, but then finish the level? If so, that would be quite a pain in the ass.

This leads to my question. Does anybody know a sure-fire way to get this achievement without playing through all over again? I really don't want to do that unless it is out of last resort.

I hope it isn't a glitch or something..

Not sure if it would work, but maybe try playing each level to a checkpoint so you get an autosave before quitting.

I'm gonna have to do this cause I missed out using him on one level but I can tell you right now,you'll almost certainly have to play till a checkpoint as that is when the game would likely tally for that achievement.If that doesn't work,it'll be a 2nd playthrough.Seems a lot of people end up doing 2 play's due to one thing or another :/

ponypo-

Just replaying the level you missed should work. I tried to remember to use Futo at least once on each level, but had to replay Snowy Canyon (the one where you sled down the mountain), because the combat part of that level is over so quickly I forgot to use him the first time.

Ah thanks for posting that.I'll replay it once I finish the game as I'm trying not to replay any level on my first runthrough.Thanks for the reply.

Well, I can't tell which level it was that I missed, I thought it was the one where you have to catch the giant koi but I beat that level with Futo right after my first play through and didn't get it. Looks like I'll just speedrun all the levels using Futo starting with the first. That's so lame. Had I only been more attentive the first time =/

I believe you have to complete the level. Just start at the beginning and run through the levels, making sure to kill at least one enemey on each one. If you speed run through the game it can be done in just under an hour, took me just over an hour to do my speed run on hard, and that includes the four or five bosses, which don't count for the Futo achievement anyways.

I just did all the levels right now and for some reason still no achievement. I think I will do the boss levels and see if maybe that is the issue. I am pretty sure they don't count but I have played each level more than twice using Futo now, I really am beginning to think it's glitched. If all else fails I can delete my game and just speedrun on easy or something.

All this BS over one silly achievement.

Not sure what to tell you then. I got the achievement with no problems, maybe it is glitched.

So I turned off the game, went and ate dinner, turned it on and at the main menu suddenly the achievement just popped up. I didn't even load a level. Well thus ends my problem. Whew.

Temperamental Achievements lol. Now, do I dare to tackle DiRT 2 and all its retarded online achievements? Or do I grind to level 50 and get my 200/200 on Shadow Complex. I get the feeling DiRT 2 will make me rage beyond belief. I still have one missing achievement on DiRT 1 I was robbed for, leaving me with 980 =/

Weird. I've never seen that with achievements. I've had that happen with trophies on the PS3 (I didn't get a trophy notification on Fat Princess until two days after I unlocked it, lol), but never on the 360. Either way, glad you got it!

Can someone confirm than if i just finish the game and restart all levels one by one this achievments will pop up at the end of the game.

And it's not snowy canyon my problem because at the last part of this level i killed some ninja after the snowboard part.

I hate this kind of achievments

Oh no!!! :(

I too am lacking this achievement, maybe this is my problem. In another post on this forum I was just saying how glad I was that I need never do that bloody snowboarding level again... but it looks like I might have to. Gah! But thank you very much for the tip anyway! :)

So have we determined that you need to replay the whole game to get this if you've missed a level using Futo? Pretty sure I've just done chapter 5 without using him, totally forgot about this stupid achievement. If I have to replay, I probably won't bother though.

I was hoping the 'play to the next checkpoint after using Futo' idea would work, I'd think it would do....

The achievement will pop up the split second you kill something with Futo on the last level you needed for the achievement.

Whether you need a checkpoint to physically have your profile count say level 3 of 4 you missed? No real answer.

I just confirmed the way this needs to be done. If you dont use Futo in the game, it doesnt matter. After beating the game, simply start at the beginning, and load up the first level. Switch to Futo and kill an enemy. Find a checkpoint and use it. Then quit out and go to the next level. Rinse and repeat for all levels.
I used Futo in the avalanche and wiped out a few guards, but the achievement didnt pop until the end of the level when I used him to kill a guard in the camp just before the level end.

just got this after it didn't unlock...turns out on the avalanche level you actually have to hit someone and not just kill them whilst sliding through them in the hat...

loaded up the level, slid to the bottom, killed 1 guy, then achievement popped! yay

You mean Snowy canyon level ? use futo while sliding and hit 1 of the bad guys ?

I KNOW for a fact the acheivement is Not glitched, I forgot to use him on the flood rice fields and when i replay it i defeated one guy and got the acheivement.
So just replay every lvl, kill one guy, and bum rush through the whole level.

yep, this is the level i needed it as well!!

IF YOU MISSED A LEVEL, AND GO BACK TO KILL AN ENEMY, YOU WILL GET THE ACHIEVEMENT RIGHT AWAY!!

i played snowy canyon and when i got to the bottom, i killed my first enemy of the level with FUTO and the achievement happened right away!

1 - you do not need to complete the level
2 - you do not need to get to a checkpoint

at least for me, that's how it worked!!

This is how it worked for me too. I played the level I missed and the achievement popped as soon as I killed an enemy.

Also had to go back for this one as I wasn't paying attention to it throughout the game. Just used a guide and went back to any level without one of the huge guys in it and got it. I believe they were the 2nd, 5th, 6th, and 11th levels. Only took maybe 10 extra minutes to get it.

this may have alredy been mentioned, but you cant just quit out after you kill someone because the game dosent save, you have to collect a checkpoint or a statue and then quit, so that the level saves.

I'm not sure you have to kill an ennemy on each level.

I finished the game yesterday, and I know that I forgot to use Futo on 1 level. As soon as I killed the last boss, I restarted the level, switched to Futo and pressed X, and the cheevo popped up immediately.

I think you only have to "use" Futo and press X on each level... just a thought ;)

I'm just asking for a little clarification here... Do you need to use Futo at all on the boss levels or can you just forget about him on them?

raidenhardcore
04-26-2010, 04:22 PM
I absolutely used Futo on every level and no cheevie :/

Only one level I can't replay is the Flooded Valley cuz the Koi fish won't take me to the 2nd part of the level!

Any tips on this problem?

raidenhardcore
04-26-2010, 04:27 PM
FINALLY i got it!

Since you cant kill anyone on that Flooded Valley Level, all you have to do is play as Futo and swing you hammer once at something and it popped.

Hi guys.

I have read this thread multiple times as i have the same problem :(
I did all other achieveos but haven't popped this one.
I have bum rushed through the whole game on easy and killing at least one enemy on each level, except for Snowy Mountain which I replayed at the end - but still no achiev!

I have now gone through the game using Futo on EVERY level up until a checkpoint and then quitting to go on to the next - but still nothing...


Any suggestions?
Thanks :)

I completed the game but knew i had gone through a few levels without using Futo. I went back after completing and went and played every level except boss levels, killed at least one enemy with Futo, then got to a checkpoint. Quit game and did the same with the next level! It didnt unlock so i loaded a level up and it popped as soon as it had loaded. Hope all who are having troubles with this get it soon :)

I was having trouble with this one so I loaded up a few levels that I thought it might be, killed an enemy got to a checkpoint and nothing. So I loaded up a random level to start going through them all in order, equiped Futo and swung my weapon randomly at nothing and the achievement popped.

and same here. Redid Avanlauche level as i KNOW i forgot to use him on that. Then loaded up flooded valley as someone mentioned you don't kill anyone in that (though think you do at the end) and one swing as Futo and it unlocked!
