Easy Head Chomp AFTER July 25th Patch

Well, a lot of threads have been surfacing about the Head Chomper location being glitched, it took me forever to figure out since I got my Head Chomper after the patch and found it extremely easy.

Then it occurred to me that no one's using the same spot as I was.

So, go to level 2-1 (AKA the first Russian level) and pass the watchtower where people previously tried to get the achievement. Now, go until you see a house in the background, on the walkable area you'll come upon a hill where you have to defeat a bunch of guys that pop outta the ground. Once you get the arrow to go to the next area, you'll see a second hill. Go onto the hill just enough to that the left side of the hill is at the corner of your screen. Now just wait down there for the baddies and chomp away.

This method WILL work after the latest patch. I didn't even bother to get the Head Chomper achievement until I knew it was possible to get a full 200 on the game..

(I know the end cuts out, gotta love a camera that only allows 30 second videos)

EDIT: Link fixed!

It's not impossible, it is very difficult though. It took me 2-3 hours to get it. Just be patient. I spent an hour messing up because I wasn't patient. Wait as long as needed to get someone to come as close to you (and turn around and stop) before trying for them. Practice enough and you'll get it.

This is the achievement I'm most proud of just because of how difficult it was.

While working on this achievement i figured out a few tricks and things to watch out for.

#1 Do not go too far past the house, or only 2 guys will spawn. It's much faster, easier, and overall less annoying with more chances.

#2 Beware new guys. The ones that just pop out of the snow have a very low chance of actually grabbing onto them. Wait for them to move back to you, otherwise you will try to grab onto them, and lose your streak.

#3 Be directly over your targets head before pressing A. The game is very sensitive, so unless you are perfectly positioned, you will miss.

#4 I can not stress this enough, BE PATIENT!!! This achievement is a total time consuming pain in the ass, be patient or you will become frustrated rather easily.

I realize this achievement and thread are old, but new information is always a good thing.

this is the best way to do it. but WAIT until the next russian is all the way to the left of the mound to the point he is behind you, chomp the guy you are on and the guy behind you will not scream and more importantly will not move. hold left on the joystick and hit A. it will take a while but i got it on my first try.

I know this is a slight necro-bump, but I just wanted to thank razzleson for posting this up. I've had Alien Hominid HD since it released, and have been stuck with 11 out of 12 achievements unlocked since 2008. Add to it KingGotenW's further detailing of ignoring the Russians that pop out of the snow (I was trying to do a fast Down+A on top of these guys the first few tries, only to lose my streak every single time), and just let them come to you helped massively.

I found that just staying between the "castle" in the background, and the tree on the ridge before the house was a nice spot, where the Russians wouldn't shoot me, would continue to rush over to get head chomped, and had the least worry of goofing up.

Now I finally have 12 out of 12 on this game, and can finally stop looking at the game in my library with a mix of annoyance and regret. Cheers!

It took me 4 hours straight to unlock this horrible achievement earlier today. I tried both 1-3 and the sniper tower in 2-1 before finally getting it in the spot on the OP's video. Everytime I would get around 35-40 heads chomped I'd either get screwed over with not landing on the guy's head, or one of the other guys would shoot and kill and the one I was on top of. Finally, after what had to be at least 100 attempts, it popped. I absolutely hate luck based achievements, and this one was no exception.

Cool Finally Done!!!

This has been the one achievement that has stopped me from fully 200GS this game. I got my first achievement in this game on 08/30/08. It has taken 5 years and 8 months to do so but it is finally done. Used this method and worked. Just goes to show that it may be hard but not impossible.

Thanks for posting this I never went into forums until just a couple of days ago and I am noticing all these cool tricks that aren't even in the guide, now I can 200G this game.
Seriously though someone should just copy and paste this into the guide...
