"Clock Watching" Achievement

The achievement description says to beat all the set times, but after beating all the Team17 times in the DLC challenges, I get no achievement and are left scratching my head wondering what that means.

I know not a whole lot of people have the DLC, but surely someone could shed some light on what you're supposed to do to earn that achievement?

It means that not only have you been ripped off 400msp for an unlock code but that youve also been ripped out of an achievement. Im doing the challenges myself now so Ill update with something more helpful (hopefully) once I complete them.

EDIT; I didnt get the achievement either so its a double rip off for me aswell, well played TEAM17. Oh and for anyone stupid enough... ie me, to think that beating the survival challenges, (which were not needed for the original 200pts) will make this unlock, it doesnt. I just spent 4 very frustrating hrs beating them and my achievement still didnt pop. So its either glitched or the times we need to beat are not the TEAM17 10 minute targets but some other undisclosed time that we have no way of finding out. A third alternative could be that we need to beat all of the target times for every level in both campaigns in addition to the challenge times.

Whatever the case we need proper confirmation of whether this is glitched or if people simply arent fulfulling the criteria to unlock the achievement. I checked the profiles of all those on the leaderboard and no one has the achievement, also no one on TA has it either. Id complain on the TEAM17 forum myself but it appears that I have a perma ban from when I complained about 'Aint got time to bleed' being glitched on Alien Breed. I wish I knew they had banned me before I bought the last two worms games. I promised myself that I wouldnt spend another penny on TEAM17 games after the Alien Breed patch lies, but I went back on that promise, now after being screwed for the second time I have definitely learned my lesson. My only solice comes from the fact that judging by the scoreboard entries for the new challenges, only 23 ppl bought the dlc. Even this though is a double edged sword as there is no way content that was only bought by a handful of people will ever be patched, so if it is a glitch we're fucked

Clock Watching Achievement Update;

Ive checked the Team17 forum almost every day since this achievement glitched on me and up until yesterday there was no official aknowledgement of the problem. FINALLY an administrator named BillT17 has responded, I quote

'We are aware of the clock watching issue and we will be looking into it'.

Fairly generic response I know but at least its something.

Clock Watching
Beat the times on all new challenges and the new Deathmatch challenge.

As the trophy description states, you need to not only complete all eight of the new challenges, but you also need to finish them under the required amount of time. All of the previous trophies lead up to this one, so this will be the last trophy in the DLC set that you will obtain.

Due to the nature of Worms, it can be difficult to pinpoint an exact strategy due to the fact that many games can and usually do play out differently each time. Therefore, I have compiled some general tips and advice to help you get through each challenge, rather than one exact strategy.

TIME TO BEAT: 3 Minutes

You have three minutes to hit 40 targets with your sniper rifle, meaning that on average, you need to be hitting a target every 4.5 seconds. Rest assured that this is not as daunting as it sounds, because a lot of the targets are very close together. Remember to make use of your zoom to hit the far away targets, and use the radar to locate them.

TIME TO BEAT: 5 Minutes, 30 Seconds

The main difficulty and frustration with this challenge lies in the deceiving camera angles that make it look as if your worm is about to collect the crate but actually isnt anywhere near it. Couple that with the extremely slow ascension speed of the Jet Pack, and youre in for a pretty annoying challenge. Youll be holding down the thrust button almost exclusively here, as you will need to drop and then slowly rise back up numerous times. The most annoying crates to collect are the ones that are located around the dinosaur, as these are dangerously close to the water. For these ones, youre going to need to slowly inch towards them whilst holding down the thrust and letting go accordingly.

There is also the final set which are located very high up. For some reason, the game doesnt let you ascend high enough to collect these from a distance, so youre going to need to hover underneath them and fly up to get them this way. Good luck with this challenge, its a tough one.

TIME TO BEAT: 4 Minutes 30 Seconds

It may take a few attempts to get used to the way in which the Super Sheep handles, but once youve mastered it, this challenge isnt too bad. Remember that the controls are NOT inverted like most other games, so pressing down on the stick will actually make your sheep fly downwards as opposed to upwards. Dont forget to use the right analog stick to change the pitch of the sheep if he starts to roll over to the side a little too much.

TIME TO BEAT: 2 Minutes

You can actually afford to miss quite a few times in this one and still beat the target time. Take it slow and make sure that your Shotgun steadies before firing.

TIME TO BEAT: 5 Minutes, 30 Seconds

Although you have several different weapons in your arsenal, this challenge can be completed exclusively with just the Bazooka. This will be a true test of your accuracy, as you are going to need to judge the wind direction and aim your shots higher to compensate for gravity as they travel. Use the lines in your zoom as a guide. Most of the time, youre going to have to aim at least 3-4 lines higher than the worm to stand any chance of actually hitting them. It may take you a few tries to judge the distances correctly, but the time limit isnt too strict here, so its possible for you to miss a few times and still complete the challenge.

TIME TO BEAT: 1 Minute, 20 Seconds

Mines, lots of mines, and youre going to be setting all of them off as you go past them in your quest to reach the summit. The mines have a three second fuse, so as soon as you set one off, you need to move on to the next platform pretty sharpish. As soon as you hear one beeping, immediately jump past it to avoid getting caught in the blast. You can simply jump to the platforms during the first half of the challenge, but youll need to make use of your forward flip towards the end as you ascend the higher platforms. Remember to use the left analog stick to change the camera angle so you can see where youre going. The time limit is quite strict in this one, so you need to be very quick.

TIME TO BEAT: 5 Minutes, 30 Seconds
DIFFICULTY: Easy (Once you know which route to take)

Start out by collecting the crate directly below you. Next, move over to the one located straight ahead of you (above the three mines grouped closely together.) Forward flip up to collect this one, and then make you way up the stairs and to the top of this building (whilst ensuring to collect the next crate halfway up too.) Now, youre going to need your Jet Pack, but make sure to conserve enough fuel to collect three more crates. Youre going to need the ones located on the two flying carpets, and then the one on the very top of the building in front of those.

Next, drop down and take the fall damage to collect the crate directly below this (dont use the Parachute because youll need it later.) Make your way down the stairs to the right to collect the next crate, whilst making sure to retreat to a safe distance once youve set off the mines. Jump to the small post containing the penultimate crate, but remember to pull back on the Analog stick a little to ensure that you dont over-jump it.

Finally, youll need to take a little trek to reach the final crate. The reason why I suggested to save the Parachute earlier is because when you reach the shoreline, you can forward flip and then immediately activate the Parachute. This will glide you safely over and enable you to collect the final crate. Using this method, I completed this challenge in just over three minutes.

TIME TO BEAT: 10 Minutes

The main difficulty with this challenge actually lies with surviving rather than beating it within the time limit. You're going to need to play a tactical game here, because the enemy has perfect accuracy and will hit you almost all of the time. Therefore, you need to find a nice hiding spot and stay there whilst slowly peeking out to pick off the enemy worms. The rocks leading onto the sand are good place to hide in, and there's a small doorway below where your first worm starts that serves as an excellent hiding spot. You have 10 minutes to complete this challenge, so you need to be killing an enemy every 1 minute and 40 seconds on average.

The good thing here is that you have an unlimited supply of Super Sheeps, so once you're hidden, you can simply use these and pick off each worm at a distance. Be careful though, and don't just rely on these. If you're having trouble, you may wish to use your Jet Pack to pick up any Health Crates that drop, or to whack them into the water with the Fire Punch/Baseball Bat.

I also noticed that the challenge times in the xbox version are wrong because it says 10 minutes for every challenge there.

The problem is that it is impossible to beat the 3 minute sniper rifle challenge #2 because the sniper rifle is affected by a glitch in the xbox version that forces a reload after each shot ( I've seen this video of the PC version -> Worms Ultimate Mayhem Challenge Mode Ep 19 Part 1 - YouTube and there is no reloading) which wastes too much time. 1st on the leaderboards completed the challenge in 3:40. i haven't been able to shoot more than 30 targets in 3 minutes
