Fucking gold medals.

Honestly. What were they thinking with this crap? I just spent like 20 minutes playing the Sled Race over and over so I could get the right buffs from the Inner Board. Finally have my 6x multiplier that won't drop if I get hit and I load up the first level. I kill everything and get the 6x going very fast, and I pick up as much gold as the greedy, bastard AI will let me pick up without them hogging it or standing in the way.

I ended up with LESS of a score than when I just did a 5x multiplier run with no Inner Board upgrades! What the fuck? What the fuck!

My point is, can someone who's further along post some tangible tips on this crap before I fly to wherever Lionhead is and slap somebody?

Is this game kidding me? I finally met the requirement for gold throughout the level and all I needed was the push from killing the boss...which of course meant that the boss did not drop a single coin whatsoever and I was like 1000 short. God damn it!

Honestly I'm pretty sure the medals are glitched or something, since I got 39k on Dark Bowerstone (37K required for gold), and I still only have a silver medal floating above level select.

And I recently checked the leaderboards, and non of the top ten players have the achievement for all gold medals, I know its only been out a day but there is usually atleast a few people who blitz it and complete it crazy quick.

That's weird about your Bowerstone medal but the reason no one has the achievement is because The Cloud level is still locked. But, yeah, I think you're right in that there's some weird glitching going on here. The rest of the game is joke-easy and obviously meant to be playable by the whole family, so why are the gold medals so ruthlessly harsh and furiously competetive? It doesn't gel with the rest of the game.

Anyway, I found ways to make getting the gold likelier, but it still all boils down to stupid luck.

- Play on Challenging for a few extra coins. Doesn't seem to be much but it's something.
- Make all your AI characters gun/magic users to keep them away from the loot.
- I feel like either getting permanent invisibility (meaning enemies don't attack you when you run ahead of your gun users) or 6X doesn't matter, but you need one of the two. Both probably guarantees the gold.

Even with that, I just failed a gold by 70 coins. 70 fucking coins, because an AI player randomly got those coins from the boss and I didn't. This is such a stupid achievement.

ok sorry for double post but i found a great tip I have 3 characters with no abilites and i don't roll for abilities for them this gives you more kill coins and bosses take longer so more hit coins.

That's a good idea but it kinda requires you to know it before you start the game... The best setup is to have 3 unleveled gun/magic guys. The problem with your AI buddies isn't that they kill the enemies, but the fact that their melee weapons means they're right on the money when it drops and they end up stealing it.

I'm just going to drop this and wait for someone to come up with a good method or for Lionhead to notice that something's just wrong with the gold medals.

Also you might wanna look at editing your first post and changing the name of the thread, this is a family game and some people might not like to see profanity, although i don't mind it but it's just a thought

How about difficulty, guys? I'm using challenging but neither of you mentioned it, are you doing normal to make maintaining the multiplier easier?

I see where you're coming from but this is pretty much an adult forum. I'd edit if we were on Xbox.com or something where it's more likely that there are kids.

I have been doing it on normal, some levels don't leave much room for error but others are just busting gold out.

Does challenging even make a difference to the amount of gold?

I feel like it makes a very minor difference. Like maybe you'll get 1000 more per level. I might be wrong though.

Is there anyway to reset individual characters? Most of mine are upgraded and too powerful to do co op with, they just destroy stuff too fast :/

I've working on the best route to take on the Cloud Light level for maximum points and I feel this is it below. It'll take you down the routes which will either have loads of tiny enemies for quick kills or normal sized but strong, so you can keep that multiplier up and get the bonus more as they take more hits.

Also make sure you have the necessary perks. I'll work on the Dark version soon.

Start > Left > Left > Right > Right > Right > Right > Centre

Here's what you'll encounter and what else you can do;

Start: 3 Gold Flowers
Left: Fences, 2 Gold Flowers, Chest, 2x Tiny Balverines Waves and Barrels
Left: 2x Hollow Hobbes Waves, Barrels and Chest
Right: 2x Hobbes Waves, Presents and Chest
Right: Chest, 2x Tiny Guardians Waves and Barrels
Right: Gold Flower., Chest, 2x Tiny Mechs Waves, 1x Mech Wave, 1x Large Mech Wave and Crates
Right: 1x Guardians Wave, Vases Chest and Gold Flower
Centre: Gold Flower, Infinite Chests and Final Fight.

You can only reset all characters. Word of warning, resetting characters causes unlocked characters to lock again.

Honestly, the gold flowers aren't worth it.

Also, I went right the entire way and made it with plenty of gold.

It's definitely worth it if your AI partners are powered up a bit and you don't have the x6 perk. I was just getting 5K over without it and that was with me grabbing all the little things along the ways.

So it's well worth taking those routes to gain maximum bonus and coins and not having to start over again. Some people maybe luck with another route but the one I feel I've put up above is pretty solid.

I feel like anything besides enemies is worth ignoring. I rarely smashed barrells and never opened chests (in case they gave me a Hobbe disguise or some shit) when I got my golds.
