200,000 star Ach the easy way
 
Ok to get the 200,000 stars ach fast, i find it strange that the guide says play upto the jack in the box and restart lvl1 because in my opinion that exactly the place u want to get to i think he missed the point of grinding, what i found way easier was upgrade the chardged attack to 3 stars and its range to 3, then when u go through after the jack in a box to the rolling worm at the end of lvl 1, do not attack the rolling worm it will spit out 6 small spiky worms, charge your attack with X and run around and take out the small worms sometimes u can get em all with one hit giving u around 1000 stars try not to hit the rolling worm, the rolling worm will just keep spitting em out with the melee attack bonus, multiplier and streak bonus's i was getting 30,000 stars in about 10 mins and no reloads or movies to withstand, much much quicker imo.

update:
sorry some confusion for some here becasue i did this after i finished the game completely and had all upgrades i just needed the stars ach.. and i thought most ppl would do the same but i guess if u try to do it on the 1st lvl on your initial playthrough u gonna have problems. U need all upgrades to get the multiplier's etc.. working correctly otherwise it will take longer.

Thanks mate. I am playing the game right now and thats the only achievement I dont have. I will definitely try your way!

Btw I did the game on hard, even played several levels again to take all the fishes and still I dont have 100k coints. Its insane X.X

Edit: it works perfectly. Even if you kill the worm you can always quit and press Continue Story and it will bring you back there with the worm alive

Suki 03-12-2011 02:22 PM

yep its the fastest way i did 100,000 stars in 25 minutes im amazed nobody spotted this before.

SWAGGART 03-12-2011 09:22 PM

Thanks for the tip, Starting this 1 monday and will defo do it your way sounds easy enough to me.

Sidburn19 03-13-2011 12:06 AM

This is definitely the quickest method of getting this achievement. I was getting a multiplier of 20x a streak of 250 plus a melee bonus of 100 ever time I killed a mini worm.

I did kill the big worm a few time by mistake but it still only took me about 15 minutes to get the White Sevens, Red Sevens and the Red, White & Blue Sevens achievement.

You can also use this method to upgrade your character to 100% really quick.

Good to know, working on this now.

Perfect Way To Do This! Helped Me Out Massively, Thanks Mate :woop:

SWAGGART 03-18-2011 07:52 PM

Definitly the quickest way got them all in about 45 mins thanks again.

XdarXideX 03-19-2011 04:01 PM

I tried this just now on the PAL version of the game but the little spikey guys stopped spitting out stars. Have they fixed it with a patch? Or is it because I'm not far enough into the game yet?

BTW I tried it with 2star Charge Attack and 1star Charge Range

They will quit spitting out stars but if you keep your melee streak maxed they will give 100 (+100 Melee will pop on the screen) stars per mini worm.

blackbrainCL 03-21-2011 12:43 AM

thanks, another completed game with 1000

RedmptionDenied 04-02-2011 11:05 PM

Thanks for this. Kept accidentally killing the big worm a few times, but still went much faster than redoing the first level. Took about 4 hours to beat the game and another hour or so of boosting this method to finish it off.

neeker75 04-06-2011 02:52 AM

Already gotten 150,000 stars with this method. 10 more minutes after work today and I should be done with 200,000. Great method.

Wuffamania 04-06-2011 05:53 AM

Awesome, good tip. Made this grind a lot more managable. Cheers.

Mr Bungle 04-06-2011 02:20 PM

Fantastic method. Thanks :)

Duizendjes 04-07-2011 09:26 AM

Great tip! Just started the game and am reading up on getting all the achievements. Will dot this for sure! :)

theduke1 04-15-2011 06:38 PM

Thanks for that tip!

AssassinDK 04-23-2011 10:35 PM

Great tip! saves a lot of time, especially with that handy extra tip with quitting and continuing if you kill the big worm. Also, instead of the charge attack, you can also use the ground stomp if you find that easier. Should be added to the guide.

Odessa 04-23-2011 11:25 PM

I've been trying this and can't seem to get the same results as others. Once you get hit does this mean the area is useless (combo-wise)? I cannot seem to get through the mission without getting hit. My character is level three on the suggested areas as well as the gun and enemy star output.

SIMPLYMIDGET 04-27-2011 12:39 AM

A much better approach, thanks.

Nice find! This works like a charm!

i've worked out what some of you must be thinking about the stars on this bit.
at first you'll see star's on the screen fallen on the ground, but after a bit the star's NO longer fall.
if you look at your star's in the top corner (your total you have) you'll seem them still going up by 100 or so but NO star's falling on the gound.
just keep going as it is working.
hope this helps.
cheers guy 73

LoIQ 05-23-2011 06:51 AM

Worked perfectly. Glad I read this before starting the game as I was able to grind a bit at a time during each encounter with one of those worm things. After beating the game, only had to spend ~5-10 mins grinding out the first level again.

Very nice find...

upindat 06-13-2011 12:13 PM

THANKS!!! Finished this game with under 100k. Knocked all three sherrif star cheevos out using your method. Another 1000g

the_b1ues 06-13-2011 05:06 PM

I'm having the same problem here. Battling through the level to get to the worm I can't avoid getting hit so lose the multiplier and streaks a few times. Are people getting to the worm with a full multipler and streak then?

Can someone confirm that this is correct though:

Once at the worm charge up the melee attack to waste the worms.

This continues to build the multiplier to a max and they drop more and more stars each time.

Avoid getting hit to keep streak and multiplier up.

When the little worms stop dropping stars when they are wasted with melee charge, you still get awarded stars even when they drop health packs.

If you kill the big worm, then quit and select continue story, all stars you gained before quitting out are not lost

Aphrodite1 06-19-2011 07:17 AM

I can confirm that all of the above points in my previous post work. Really easy to do!
