Just play as different 3 characters in any mode, you should get this one easy if you just play the game.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/691/-zgYOw==.jpgWarrior10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgComplete Arcade Mode
Another simple achievement, all this requires you to do is finish the arcade mode with any any character.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/691/-Ib1+g==.jpgZen Warrior10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgWin a round with a perfect
If you are good at the game you will get in no time but if you are struggling to get this just change the difficulty in the options to easy. The best character to do this with is Ivy just walk to the edge of the ring and wait for your opponent to run towards you and when your opponent is close enough use her http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/x.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.pnggrapple attack on the edge of the ring to throw the opponent out of the ring.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/691/-qf8Tw==.jpgNoble Soul25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgBeat the game in Ultra Hard without losing a round
This achievement is not as hard as it seems but still can be difficult, to start off with go to the options put the difficulty on ultra hard then change the number of rounds to 1 so your less likely to not lose a round also set the time to infinite and health to infinite. Then just get ring outs. That way, no matter what they do, you can't lose, unless you get kicked out which hasn't happen to me so far. The best character to do this with is nightmare with his http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rightdpad.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/y.png attack.
Thanks To Lozia For The Time & Health Tip.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/691/-0cE3A==.jpgChampion25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgBeat Time Attack Mode in under 4 minutes
Just rush through time attack as fast as you can and you should get it no problem. This is easiest with Ivy just use her http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/x.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.pnggrapple attack on the edge of the ring to throw the opponent out of the ring or can be easily done with Nightmare with his http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rightdpad.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/y.png attack until the opponent goes out the ring.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/691/+uXvJQ==.jpgRing Out15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgFinish Time Attack Mode with all Ring Outs
To get this achievement you have to finish your opponents by getting ring outs. To do this just hit your opponent when they are on the edge of the ring and they should fall out of the ring. The easiest way to do is with Ivy just run up to the edge with her and when your opponent comes towards you hold http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/x.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png to throw them over the edge. Another easy way to do this is with Nightmare just do the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rightdpad.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/y.png attack until they go out the ring.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/691/+wUXtg==.jpgConqueror25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgBeat 25 opponents in Extra Survival Mode
The easiest seems to be doing Ivy's http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rightdpad.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/y.png attack, which shoots her sword almost all the way across the screen. I was able to get 58 wins in EX Survival that way.
Thanks To GaTechGrad

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/691/+SQeAw==.jpgClose Call15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgDefeat an opponent under adverse conditions
To get this achievement you must defeat your opponent with very little health. Tip From Convercide: Start Arcade, pick player 1 as Kilik and player 2 as Nightmare. Use the player 2 pad and use Nightmare's throw http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/x.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png on Kilik. Once Kilik is on the floor tap http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/y.png so Nightmare hits him on the floor. Repeat until Kilik has the tiniest smidgen of health. Then get back up as Kilik and finish off Nightmare.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/691/UP+81Jo=.jpgGuardian15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgPerform 25 consecutive bursts with Freestyle set to Guard Impact in Practice Mode
Pick Cervantes and fight Sophitia.
Freestyle Settings -> Guard Impact -> Repel.
Then attack with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/x.png and counter their attack with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rightdpad.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png
You'll get Burst1 the first time, then Burst2 and so on all the way to 25.
You need to continually attack, if you stop the Burst counter will reset.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/691/UP5cLAk=.jpgArt Connoisseur5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgExplore the different areas in the Museum
When on the main menu scroll down until you see museum when you are on the museum menu just go on;

Once you have been on all of the listed above in no order the achievement should pop up.

To get this achievement you must preform the summon suffering with Ivy using the combination posted above. There are three easy ways to do this;
1. Set the difficult to easy, Life bar to infinite (∞), Round time to infinite. Now you can keep trying the move without having to worry about the time limit or getting knocked out. Thanks To GaTechGrad
2. Another easy way is to set up two controllers, go to vs mode with only you playing, turn neutral block off, play as Ivy, do the move. It takes a few tries, but at least you can get it unopposed. Thanks To Hail Horror
3. Set up a Versus match, with infinite time/health if you feel you need to. As soon as the match starts pause it, go into the control settings, and change one of your buttons to A+B (meaning when you press that button it will be as if you're pressing two). Now to do the move just rotate the stick a few times -- clockwise if Ivy is on the left of her opponent or counter clockwise if she's on the right -- and press the A+B button after you've got a few rotations in. Thanks To botafogo007

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/691/UP2d3S8=.jpgEdge Master30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgBeat Arcade Mode with all characters
This achievement is easier than it seems, just beat arcade mode with all 19 characters on any difficulty. To beat arcade mode super fast just set the difficulty to easy and the round limit to 1 and you should do arcade in about 1-2 minutes with each character.

I also used Nightmare for the "Champion" achievement, Forward + Y seems to do the trick most of the time.

Updated thanks for the tips guys :)
oh and do you know if that is also the best strategy with extra survival aswell?

GaTechGrad

I was able to 200/200 this in a little less than 4 hours, but I've been playing Soul Calibur since it was Soul Edge on the PS1.

Here are some tricks:

For "Noble Soul", be sure to set the round count to 1 and time limit to the minimum (in addition to setting the difficultly to Ultra Hard). I fought to a time limit win against Inferno, and still got the achievement.

For "Conqueror", the easiest seems to be doing Ivy's forward + hold Y, which shoots her sword almost all the way across the screen. I was able to get 58 wins in EX Survival that way.

For "Summon Suffering", it's best to read one of the old Soul Calibur FAQs to see how to do the move. You can also play a demo of it in practice. However, I was not able to get the achievement by executing the move in Practice mode, so I think the move has to be done in Arcade mode. But here's another trick: Set the difficulty to easy, Life Bar to infinite (the sideways 8), Round time to infinite. Now you can keep trying the move without having to worry about the time limit or getting knocked out.

If you want the "Edge Master" achievement quick, set the round count to 1, difficulty to easy, and time limit to the minimum. I was able to blaze through with all the characters with an average time of 1 to 2 minutes per character.

"Ring Out": I just used Cervantes forward, forward + Y when the opponent was near the edge, which is almost a guaranteed ring out (he throws the opponent out with his swords).

The others are pretty much self explanatory.

Cheats:
- When you select a character, you can choose the weapon by press "LT"!
- If you wont a metallic char you only have to select a character by press RT + A (press RT first and dont release until press A)


Achievements:

Apprentice - Play with 3 chars in any mode

Warrior - A easy way do to this is put in the options, only one combat and in normal difficult

Zen Warrior - Like i said in the Warrior Achievement you can do this in a easily way, use Nightmare because he take more damage in a single attack

Noble Soul - This is a little difficult. Use Nightmare again and alternate with attack and defense... And to turn the thing more easy... put in the options 30 secs, then you can attack and wait for the "TIME OVER"

Champion - You need to be fast in this one! Use a char that easily can do "RING OUT"... I recommend Voldo -> Run and press Y and he do a fast attack that can do "RING OUT"! You can use Mitsu to -> Run and press Y (its the same thing)

Ring Out - Use, for exemple Ivy. She has a attack that grab the opponent and throw him to her back. So, go to the end of the ring and throw him to do a RING OUT! =D

Conqueror - This achievement is pure luck! Use Nightmare or Mitsu... I recommend this two. But be careful: one attack and you lose!

Close Call - Win when you have the life bar almost empty.

Guardian - Go to the practice mode. I recommend you use Cervantes VS Sophitia. Go to the options in the pratice menu and put Guard. When you attack, oponent guard and attack you. When he attack you make a guard too by press "<- and A". Then, attack again and the oponent will guard and attack too. Do this 25 times. You will see in the left part of the screen saying the times you already do the Burst.

Art Connoisseur - Simply explore all the Museum by enter in all the sections!

Summon Suffering - Go to the practice mode. And try the attack. You can see how to do it in the Command List in the Practice Menu. When ready, go to the Arcade Mode and try it! Its easy!

Edge Master - Do it with all the characters.

I can verify Hail Horror's method of gaining Summon Suffering.

For 'Guardian' as BrunoXboxLive described.

Practice Mode.

Pick Cervantes and fight Sophitia.

Freestyle Settings -> Guard Impact -> Repel.

Then attack with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/x.png and counter their attack with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rightdpad.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/a.png

You'll get Burst1 the first time, then Burst2 and so on all the way to 25.

Good advice for the ultra hard achievement. To add to it, set the time to infinite and health to infinite. Then just get ring outs. That way, no matter what they do, you can't lose, unless you get kicked out which hasn't happen to me so far.

Damn why didnt i think of that! Great tip il add it to the guide right now

EDIT: Updated thanks for the tip and if anybody finds any easier tips for the achievements dont be shy to post them up and apart from that the guide looks almost done just need to tweak a couple of things, Oh and could i just take away "Thanks To ...

Okay, here's an EXTREMELY easy way to get this achievement. Set up a Versus match, with infinite time/health if you feel you need to. As soon as the match starts pause it, go into the control settings, and change one of your buttons to A+B (meaning when you press that button it will be as if you're pressing two).

Now to do the move just rotate the stick a few times -- clockwise if Ivy is on the left of her opponent or counter clockwise if she's on the right -- and press the A+B button after you've got a few rotations in. I got it my first try doing this. It won't work against real opponents, but works fine with a 2nd controller plugged in.

As someone who could never pull of Zangief's Spinning Pile Driver, I was very afraid of this Summon Suffering achievement. Botafogo007's strategy works perfectly. Also, Mitsurugi is a good choice if you are having trouble with the Time Attack achievement.

You'll get Burst1 the first time, then Burst2 and so on all the way to 25.

I am having problems with this one, all it ever comes up with is Burst1 on the screen?

I am hitting X, then <- + A, then X, then <- + A, but always just get Burst1.

Any ideas?

Convercide
07-02-2008, 07:06 PM
One great technique for ring outs is Kilik's "Dirty Bo". The move is diagonal-down away from your opponent and X+Y.

He hits their legs apart and promptly throws them clean over his head. All you have to do is have your back to the edge and he flings them off.

EDIT: His -> -> X is also a really good attack for ring outs. It hits them sideways so you just have to be next to the edge with the edge on Kilik's right and he'll hit them over.

How I got the Summon Suffering Achivement was different than any of these ways.

I just started mashing random directions on the D-Pad and mashed the X and Y buttons. In Arcade mode on easy. You don't actually have to complete the move.

I missed it and got hit by Edge Master and I got the Achievement

To get this achievement you must defeat your opponent with very little health. The way i took of most of my opponents health of should then i could finish them off in one hit then let my opponent attack me until i had no health then i just quickly finished them off.





If you are having trouble with this. Either Raise or lower the health. I did this with 90% health after trying forever to do it with 100% health. It might be easier to do this with 130% health on Easy where you can take more hits.

Here's a question. Since Soul Calibur is a 2 player game, couldn't you just get some of these achievements by starting a up a 2nd controller? Like Close Call, Summon Suffering, Zen Warrior.

As I mentioned earlier I was able to get Summon Suffering to unlock for me with 2 controllers. I got both Close Call and Zen Warrior in Arcade mode so I can't comment on those, but I do know you'll get the apprentice achievement by playing with 2 controllers too (not that it's tough to get otherwise :) ) because I unlocked it after using 2 characters in arcade mode and one in versus.

Woohoo, I'm done. :woop:

The Guardian achievement was definitely the hardest for me! So bloody annoying!

Oh, and you CAN get the ring out achievement with Continues, cos I did.

Yep, I just confirmed this. You can use Continues on the 'Ring Out' achievement.

Here's a guaranteed Close Call Achievement guide but you will need 2 pads:

Start Arcade, pick player 1 as Kilik and player 2 as Nightmare. Use the player 2 pad and use Nightmare's throw (X+A) on Kilik. Once Kilik is on the floor tap Y so Nightmare hits him on the floor. Repeat until Kilik has the tiniest smidgin of health. Then get back up as Kilik and pwn Nightmare. Worked for me.

One great technique for ring outs is Kilik's "Dirty Bo". The move is diagonal-down away from your opponent and X+Y.

He hits their legs apart and promptly throws them clean over his head. All you have to do is have your back to the edge and he flings them off.

EDIT: His -> -> X is also a really good attack for ring outs. It hits them sideways so you just have to be next to the edge with the edge on Kilik's right and he'll hit them over.

Dirty Bo worked perfectly for me.

Just back up to the edge, let the opponent come towards you.

It's hilarious if they have their back to you :D

Incidently, 200/200, my first completed arcade game, woo!

Okay, here's an EXTREMELY easy way to get this achievement. Set up a Versus match, with infinite time/health if you feel you need to. As soon as the match starts pause it, go into the control settings, and change one of your buttons to A+B (meaning when you press that button it will be as if you're pressing two).

Now to do the move just rotate the stick a few times -- clockwise if Ivy is on the left of her opponent or counter clockwise if she's on the right -- and press the A+B button after you've got a few rotations in. I got it my first try doing this. It won't work against real opponents, but works fine with a 2nd controller plugged in.

Actually it works on a real opponents, I don't have another controller so I tried your method and it worked first try on arcade.

Pretty sweet move.

Just make it inf. life and inf. time and keep trying it.

just wondering does it count as a ring out if you KO them and knock them off at the same time?

I cant get the Guardian achievement either. The Ivy method isnt so great. I was closer to getting it with Astaroth by just charging people. Got to 23, I was so pissed.

FlamedLiquid
07-04-2008, 12:26 AM
Wait I meant the Conquer achievement. Guardian was easy. But for those having trouble using Ivy for Conquer try using Nightmare. I dont know how but I tried using Ivy and Astaroth like over 10 times each and on my first time using Nightmare I got the achievement. Just just his "Y" swings.

Just keep working on the extra survival you'll get it eventually, and dante in the dark do you mean conquer not guardian?

HeatGuyStu
07-04-2008, 12:18 PM
Okay another way of getting the 25 wins in Ex Survival achievement is to play as Cervantes and use his quarter circle from down to away and Y attack move (sorry don't know the name!). CPU gets nailed by it everytime. If they block then repeatedly hammer Y to do his 3 hit heavy combo afterwards...worked for me anyway. Charging people is not a good idea, you get too close and the law of averages will catch up on you eventually...

SWiFT MiiST
07-04-2008, 01:11 PM
Conqueror is EXTREMELY easy if you just use Kilik, take 2 steps back and press Y when they come close enough. They'll never block, because they can't while they're running. With the method in the guide the opponent can just take a swift circle around you, charge, and kill quite easily. It is somewhat based on luck, which could explain your 50 score, but my way is fail safe.


Also for "Ring Out", Astaroth's http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rightdpad.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/y.png attack is better in my opinion.

100%!!!!

o and btw i dunno what happened but when i was trying to do summon suffering with ivy i couldnt do it in practice mode

i had blocks off i think....but yea i couldnt get it in practice but as soon as i went into arcade i tried it and got it eventually

but the opponents kept attacking me so i got SO frustrated and just hammered a few of them and then tried again
got it finally...but easy 200 imo

seriosuly this 25 extra survivial thing is annoying me, Ive tried every signle character in the game, closest was Ivy with 22 but just annoying how sometimes theyll run at me and others just randomly kick until they connect with me

Lilballer59
07-05-2008, 01:28 PM
Oh yeah. A tip for people doing the extra survival achievement.
when your using Ivy you have to click the joystick right, you cant just push it left.
Hope that helps!

Does anyone know if you can use your favourite characters to get to Soul Edge, let him beat you and then beat him with another character and then repeat for all characters if the Edge Master Achievement still pops?

AHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

This "conqueror" achievement is pissing me off! :mad:

18wins
20wins
23wins
and another 23wins.

Ive tried about 40 times and thats the best ive got.

I'm changing the method each time, but still cant do it.
Anyone know an awesome way to do it?
This my last achievement I need to get.

EDIT: Nevermind folks I got it, it took a while but I found that the best way was to crouch down with Kilik or Seung-Mina (they both have long quick weapons) then attack with the "Y" button whilst holding "back" on the left stick (remaining in crouch). Hopefully you should get them!

I was having some trouble with the "Guardian" achievement, so I ended up using the "Record Input Command" function and did the X, ->+A combo twice. Then I just repeatedly tapped RT so the playback was doing all of the work for me. Surprised it actually worked.

For summon suffering i rotated the left analogue counterclockwise really fast and tapped X+Y. It worked for me after about five minutes and takes no skill whatsoever which is perfect for me(Berga=poopskill) you just have to time the X+Y right so it can't be completely random.

I was confused with this at first also. You have to hold Y and then hold the thumb stick to the right for a second. Not just press Right + Y.

Btw, thanks for the guide, very informative. Got me to 200 in 2 or 3 hours! :woop:

For Guardian, I found it easier to go up to about 10-15 with the x attack and then switch to the slower y attack.

WHOA!!! aswesome tip with the y attack :woop:

i couldn't pull it off with just using the x attack. i somehow screwed up around 15 - 20. then i just used the y attack right from the start and it worked in the first try.

i highly recommend just using the y attack instead the x attack.

Art Gallery
Battle Theater
Exhibition Theater
Character Profiles

And once you have been on all of the listed above in no order the achievement should pop up.

Thanks

I bought this game when it first came out and got all the other achievements in a little over an hour. I tried this one over and over for weeks then every once in a while up until today I tried this method and the FIRST TRY I got 47 wins... I've tried it countless other times for like a year now and this is the only thing that has gotten me past 25...

I did the hold back+y "power move" when they started to run towards me, by the time they got to me they were dead. Finally have 200/200.... :/

an easy way to do this, I've found, is to hit the opponent from mid range with ivy's forward+b+k attack. it's a long range attack that drags the opponent towards you and stuns them. While this attack is going on, rotate the stick repeatedly, and just as the move ends hit a+b. with some practice, this is an easy way to land summon suffering on CPU opponents nine times out of ten.
