How To Get Turtle Soup
 
Well as most of you already know, this achievement is partially glitched. Only a handful of people in the world have it right now (12 I think), and they seem to all have done it different ways. Some did it offline, some online, some destroyed all the clones first, some only one, some none, etc... So basically what I'm asking is if anyone gets the achievement, please post here explaining exactly how you got it. Tell us what turtle you were using, how many lives you lost, how many clones you killed, on or offline, or any other detail you can think of. It's driving me nuts that I've already filled the supposed requirements for the achievements 3 times, and still have nothing to show for it.

Try doing it offline (Not connected to Xbox Live), w/o co-op.

I've already tried that a few times and it didn't unlock for me.

francesthemutes 03-17-2007 04:31 PM

Damn. I was going to try for this one, might as well not do it if it's glitched.

Yeah don't let it drive you crazy. I'm already shell shocked from this game.

ken_berry_fan83 03-17-2007 05:59 PM

Like everyone else who done the requirements for the achievement and did not get it I was very mad. This is what I did. I played online co-op with four people and I was Raphael. Everyone made it to Shredder and beat him I was the only one not turned into a little turtle, but we were all still alive when he was defeated. When he fell down I saw those wonderful words ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED. Also I died three times. I hope this helps everyone. If anyone wants to play just send me a message.

lol, i was just gonna post about this not unlocking for me :(
Yeah offline didn't work for me.

This really needs to not remind me of Smash T.V glitches.... kinda annoyed

EDIT: I just beat it on co-op and DIDN'T get it. Had 4 ppl, 2 quit early, 1 died at the last stage so only I was left. Only died once on shredder and killed 0 clones. You probably have to make it to the end w/everyone :(

Cisumurug 03-17-2007 09:28 PM

I'm thinking it might be certain character it unlocks with. I'm going to try it with Raphael. And for the people who have done it but didn't get the achievement, what character did you use? Just curious. Because I've been using Donatello.

Spot2009 03-18-2007 01:44 AM

I've done it w/ Rafael and I didn't get the achievement.

I N64 I StarFox 03-18-2007 02:50 AM

a guy on my friends list named oMAJIN VAGETAo got it by beating the game TWICE and not getting turned into the original turtle but i have yet to try it so if anyone wants to try it to confirm it go for it.

this is the message he sent me.

message 2 all friends im a TMNT MASTER LOL ok to get soup achievement you have 2 beat the game twice without turning into regular turtle BUZZ achievement unlocked ^_^

Cisumurug 03-18-2007 03:04 AM

I'm just having bad luck altogether. I can't even beat shredder now without getting zapped. I tried like 3 times today too.

Atticus 03-19-2007 04:55 AM

Well... I just beat it on single player the first time without getting turned into a regular turtle and did not get the achievement.

I have a theory though... although I have heard it only a few times it appears the way to get the achievement is to have all four turtles beat the game and those of the four that do not get changed to a regular turtle might get the achievement.

If anyone has gotten the ach. and seemed to have done it this way, please speak up.

Butters 03-19-2007 05:21 AM

here's what my friend sent me today but i have not tried this.

"dude im talking to someone who got the turtle soup achievement, and it has to be done with the host alive or the ending doesnt show, it just says gameover, beat the game, without turning into a turtle, with host alive, to see ending and get the soup1"

So legion and crash and peeps maybe its worth a try even though i thought that legion was host when he was suposed to get...

It's funny you should mention this...

I JUST beat it as the host and sole survivor of a four player game in which I did not get turtlized. And still... no achievement:mad:

This does not work. I played a 4-player match 2 nights ago and all 4 of us completed the game with me as host. I was not turned into a turtle, saw the ending, and I did not get the achievement.

LeonardLawrence 03-19-2007 05:06 PM

I played two players on a single XBox. I used Donatello, my girl used Leonardo. She got zapped and did not get it. I didn't get zapped and I got it. I died at least once too. Too bad I was using her gamertag.

How To Get Turtle
 
I tried posting this in its own thread earlier but realized I skipped a step. I have 4 player accounts on my xbox and all 4 now have it (only one is on xbox live however).

Step by Step guide on how to get Turtle Soup:

1) This method only works offline and you must have 4 players start the game. In the first level have three of them die, including the account that you want to get the achievement with. DO NOT KILL ANYONE with the account(s) you want to get the achievement.
2) Progress through the game until you get to Krang with one player. When Krang is near death bring back all 4 turtles and kill krang. Try to get the turtle/account(s) that is/are getting the achievement close to death before you kill krang.
3) Upon killing krang make sure that all 4 turtles are alive when shredder comes through the portal
4) He will split into 6 clones of himself. Immediately allow the turtle/account(s) that is/are getting the achievement to be killed without being shrunk
5) Proceed to kill all of the clones with the other turtles that are not getting the achievement, this is done easiest with only one turtle alive playing as leonardo or donatello
6) When it is just you and the real shredder keep attacking him until his helmet comes off
7) Once his helmet is off bring back all 4 turtles, his helmet must be off because when it is he will not use the shrink ray
8) Once you bring back all 4 turtles he will again split into 6 duplicates of himself
9) you may now kill the real shredder, but not with the account(s) who are getting the achievement, and make sure all 4 are alive when you kill him
10) Enjoy your new achievement

Note: DO NOT KILL ANYONE throughout the game with the account(s) you want to get the achievement. In fact, I didn't even move the turtles who were getting it. Just make sure to bring them back right away when they die before killing shredder and krang. Also, this method works both while connected to xbox live and while offline but not while in a multiplater co-cop game

Edit: Apparantly you do not need all 4 players to do this with, only 2. Thus, the steps are all the same except you only need to use two turtles. Thanks to those who pointed this out.

As I said, I verified that this works on 4 different accounts. Twice I got it with raphael, once with Leonardo and once with donatello. Twice I did it with only one account (neither of which were on xbox live) and this last time I did it with the two remaining accounts, including the one you see below.

Good luck to all and YOU ARE VERY WELCOME :woop: :woop: :woop:

LoadedCannon 03-19-2007 08:08 PM

sounds like you know what your talkin' about so i'm going to try this later and if it works i'm ging to 'do' you.

oh yes

Atticus 03-19-2007 08:15 PM

Oh man, I only have one controller, so I guess I'm out. :(

Surely you have just contradicted youtself there, what do you mean?
EDIT: I read it back and I understand now, I'm a fecking retard...

chewy 03-19-2007 09:42 PM

I suppose I could have been clearer though I fail to see a contradiction...In any event, have the turtles/accounts that you want to get the achievements with die immediately and do not kill any foot soldiers, or any other item that gives you a kill point, with them throughout the game. Thus, you should play through the game with one turtle/account which you do not want to get the achievement with. Then proceed with the rest of the steps. I hope this makes it clearer. Sorry for any confusion.

HAHAyurDEAD 03-19-2007 09:52 PM

I have just finished playing through the game using the method that Chewy used. I got the TURTLE SOUP ACHIEVEMENT!!! WOOHOO!!! This method does work! The only thing that I did different is that I only used 2 profiles/ turtles. If you use the method Chewy has posted above, you WILL get this achievement. PERIOD. Great work Chewy!!!

Crash 03-19-2007 09:54 PM

LoL. I was just going to come here and post how to do this but I see you figured it out too and beat me to it. I have done it with 4 of my accounts now and they all unlocked first try using the same method as chewy's.

Everything sounds good but you DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE 4 PLAYERS. i did this with just 2 controllers. So those who dont have 4 good luck

chewy 03-19-2007 10:11 PM

I'm glad to see that it has worked for others. I didn't try with anything less than 4 players but apparantly less will work. Thank you for the clarification...Congrats to all who have gotten it.

By the way, this method works for some other achievements as well (not being burned by flamethrower, beat the general with less than 20 hits and beat krang with less then 10 hits). Just be alive when the boss appears and die. Then bring the player back right before the death of the boss and voila, achievement unlocked (of course make sure that you fulfill the requirements for the achievements as well).:)

L3giOn 03-19-2007 10:34 PM

I can also confirm this works. :woop:

Boxy 03-19-2007 11:04 PM

I too can confirm that this appraoch works for getting the Turtle Soup achievement (thank god!) I bow before the man that discovered this approach and tip my hat to him.

The True Noob 03-20-2007 01:18 AM

Does it matter which player is 1st player etc?

N30CHAOS 03-20-2007 02:23 AM

this method works indeed .. so easy "a caveman could do it" ... 200/200 finally

Turtle Soup
 
Well we finally know an easy way to get turtle soup achievement. Start a solo game then sign in a 2nd controller. Don't touch or move player 1 (your gamertag) let the first foot soldier kill player one and dont press any buttons on the first controller so you dont respawn. Now get to krang with player 2 only. Beat krang down untill he's almost dead, now respawn player 1 and let krang hurt him a little bit and then beat krang with player 2. The trick is to be at shredder with player 1 in low health. Now let shredder kill off player one, remember not to move the player one controller at all. Once player one is dead beat off all the shredder clones (doesn't matter if you're turned into a turtle) once the real shredder loses his helmet respawn player one then beat shredder and his new helmetless clones with player 2. ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED. Remember dont move or kill anyone with player one and shredder has to kill you once.
