DLC Achievement Guide
 
Well since nobody has posted one of these and I've received a few questions about Captain on the Bridge, I thought I'd put up this guide. This is my first guide and any feedback or advice would be appreciated. I know it's only 2 achievements, but hey, this may have been the only game I finished early enough to be able to write a guide.

Destroy all 5 ship classes plus 1 escape pod using the Missile Cruiser in Versus.

-- Simply start up a Versus Team Deathmatch game against the AI. Change the settings to max amount of time, max kills, max number of opponents and change the difficulty to Easy. Choose the Missile Cruiser and keep playing until you get it.

Earn the Captain rank in Survival Mode

-- This one was surprisingly tough. You need to earn at least 10,000,000 points to reach Captain rank and the points are not cumulative from game to game. I did it with the Bomber class because it is the fastest ship and has a powerful weapon. The Bomber is also the weakest class and can only take 2-3 hits once the enemies become red. Be patient and play conservatively. Stick to the edges of the maps because many enemies tend to gather in the middle. Use your crappy powerups immediately to try and get Invincibility, and save it until you're about to die. There is one level where a ton of space pirate ships come and drop huge amounts of point boxes; there are also Temporal Distortion powerups on this level you can use to gather a lot of point boxes. More importantly than trying to get kills and points, stay alive. Patience really is key.

As a possible alternate method, I just used a flagship myself. I don't know if you get bonuses to your score with a bomber but by using a flagship and being accurate, I got an extra 5,405,847 points with my in-game score being 6,778,750. These added up and put me well over the 10,000,000 mark.
Good Luck!

I used a fighter and saw my score do well, I'll make a conscious attempt tomorrow.

Septic 12-06-2009 12:25 AM

It is hard but not impossible. I used Flagship and got it.The more you play it, the better you get.It took me about 15 games before I got it.I tried using bomber but I don't like it's weapon.It's a fun game.There's nothing wrong with the guide.

I'm looking at getting this game to 100% it, so never played it, how long does it take to get your 10m points in one game and get the captain achievement? Is it like a 10 min game or like an hour to rack up 10m points. Sounds like a lot...

Thanks!

Denny Crane 12-06-2009 06:05 AM

for the survival one, would the kobayashi maru cheat not disable getting the achievement?

It takes about 10-15 min, but it took me over 2 hours of trying.But I also forgot about the cheat.With the cheat you can do it 1st go.It took me about 6 hours for the original 200.You need time to get used to controls and figure out whats on the screen, that's with all games though.

I tried using the kobayashi maru cheat and I honestly couldn't tell if it worked or not. I'm not sure if the developers made it so you could use it on survival.

acdougla17 12-07-2009 02:01 AM

I thought it was a very easy achievement. First try I used the bomber (cant stand that thing). 2nd try I used flagship and got it. I find it easiest to go crazy with your power ups and not just save invincibility.

Midersaw 12-07-2009 02:11 AM

I tried every class and found it easiest with the bomber. I guess it's probably just easiest with whatever class you feel most comfortable with. I just couldn't dodge enemy torpedoes with any other class.

Thanks mate, might have to pick it up!

l.maciver 12-08-2009 09:49 PM

for people asking about the cheat, the cheat is disabled for survival mode...

komodokid77 12-10-2009 02:46 AM

boo yah, #1 in leaderboards for the missile cruiser! 19 million points! Just circle around and spam fire into the center.

STARINFLAMES21 01-18-2010 02:54 PM

Survival was really easy with the flagship!

wendy2643 02-05-2010 05:30 PM

I don't see how this is easy for anyone... I've tried over ten times... the most I can get is 202 kills... I can't even get to 6 million points.

benatheos 03-21-2010 11:15 AM

yap ... this achievement is hell ... tried it over and over again but I`m not even close to 10.000.000 :wtf

Starstrukk X360A 06-30-2010 11:56 PM

Captain on the Bridge is ridiculously difficult. I can only get halfway before I finally die.

Same here.

Nei Debrusc 08-13-2010 11:28 AM

I don't know if Kobayashi works, but whenever I enter it I hear a tone, so that's telling me I entered it correctly, at least. I haven't noticed any marked difference between when I use it and when I don't, but I guess it's there for placebo effect.

Anyway, I do best with the Flagship, though I still can only barely get more than 6mil final score. You get an extra life at 2mil points, and I suppose at 4mil too. Haven't gotten there yet, but at least that helps.

Unertan 03-14-2011 04:24 PM

This achievement is so annoying. Myself along with 3 others are still stuck with this being our only achievement left in this game. Grrr!

Assassino187 08-25-2011 05:43 PM

Impossible!!!! Simpmy depends on luck what a waste wish I never downloaded this crap DLC

bladevesuvan 08-27-2011 11:23 PM

So... I don't know how it happened... unless it adds the scores across each ship... but apparently you don't actually need 10 mil for the achievement?

I tried a few times with the flagship but it was just too slow for me (high score - 6,512,138), then first time through with the bomber I got into a nice rhythm.

Game Score: 5,026,000
Ship Bonus: 2,513,000
Accuracy Bonus: 1,608,645

Total Score: 9,147,645

Current Rank: Captain

Derp de derp.

nekokari 08-24-2012 07:51 PM

so why has this not been added to the game's achievement guide? it seems pretty useful to me.

Corrupt. 01-04-2013 05:07 AM

You do need an element of luck. I was crapping out at around 6-7 million for a while, then put of nowhere I got about 13 million. Just keep at it you'll get there eventually.
