Mirrors Edge DLC Achievement Guide

U-turn 30
String together: wallrun, wallrun, turn, swing, jump. [Pure Time Trials]

This can be easily done on the "Velocity" time trial. After the first checkpoint, You wallrun the left wall. Whilst in wallrun look right and tap jump to hurl towards the wall opposite. If you get the angle right you will be able to wallrun again on the right hand wall. Once you think your opposite the pole, turn then jump. You will then grab the pole and simply jump off it.

The button combination is: [, , + Hold, , , ]

For a video tutorial, see the video at the end of the guide.

Dicey launch 30
String together: slide, wallrun, wall climb, turn, jump. [Pure Time Trials]

This can quite easily be done on the level "Flow". Immediatly when you pass the second checkpoint, there will be a big slide. Once on the slide start swerving to the right and approach the wall on the right, jump of to a wallrun, then you'll hit the wall verticle for a wall climb, then simply turn and jump to make it onto the platform above and you have pocketed yourself a nice 30 points.

The button combination is: [ + Hold, + Hold, , ]

For a video tutorial, see the video at the end of the guide.

Surreptitious swing 30
String together: springboard, wallrun, turn, swing, jump. [Pure Time Trials]

This one is fairly easy,the off springboard literally after the first checkpoint on "Actino Rise" run up to the step aiming a little bit to the right and jump and hold the left bumper, as you hit the wall turn, jump to swing on pole then jump up to the next checkpoint.

The button combination: [, , , ]

For a video tutorial, see the video at the end of the guide.

The twister 30
String together: wallclimb, turn, swing, wallclimb, turn, swing, jump. [Pure Time Trials]

This one is very easy to do, on "Kinetic". after the last checkpoint heading towards the final goal. take the left most route, and wallclimb, turn, swing, jump, wallclimb, turn, swing, jump.

The button combination is: [, , , , , , ]

For a video tutorial, see the video at the end of the guide.

To explore strange new worlds 30
Attain a Time Trial star rating of 75. [Pure Time Trials]

"See Superstars For More Details".

Superstar 100
Attain a Time Trial star rating of 90. [Pure Time Trials]

Alot of skill and time is required to get a star rating of 90 on all trials. There are 32 time trials (including the Pure Time Trials) for you to obtain upto a 3 Star Rating in each.

The maximum star rating is 96. So there is little room for error.

Some tips for beating the target times:

- Don't always use the most obvious routes, There will be various other routes that can shave many seconds off your time.
- Take advantage of downloading the ghosts from the leaderboards.
- Try to plan out your route before you attempt to break the target. It helps if you plan where to jump, when to jump ect.
- If you get lost at any point during the new trials just look around for coloured blocks (usually red, purple, pink, yellow). These are the slowest, but easiest routes to follow.

Very simple video on the locations of the 4 combo achievement. Hope it helped.

I got the special moves achievements by just looking for quick paths. I didnt even read what the achievements are and got them. Although, on Flow a ghost gave me that achievement.

Ok ill try to explain the controls for this massive combo move. You wallrun the left wall (LB). Whilst in wallrun look right (right stick) and tap jump (LB) to hurl towards the wall opposite. If you get the angle right you will be able to wallrun again on the right hand wall (LB). Once you think your opposite the pole, turn (RB) then jump (LB). You will then grab the pole and simply jump off it (LB).

So to recap. LB, look right, LB, LB, RB, LB, LB.

Thats some damn nice quality there Zedchuva. Too bad they didnt put that good quality to use and put up 3 star runs.

Hey Zedchuva,

Thanks for those videos, i wont add them into the guide mostly because it will take too much room for when i have all the 3star videos. But these could be useful if people want to get an overview of the course before you try


Thanks

Here's a video of Reflex:
2 things before watching it though...

1) on the double-slide at around 50 seconds you can just slide straight down from one to the other. Not sure which way is faster, but at least sliding straight down you don't have to worry about taking damage...
2) at about 55 seconds rather than making the full wall run, turn halfway through and you can jump to a swing bar. To make it onto the block past the bar wait until you're fully forward and crouch-jump this way you get enough height to make it over. This swing cuts off a good 2 or 3 seconds from the run.

Nice, I've been looking out for a guide for the DLC. Well done for bringing it out so fast. This should probably be stickied.

Thanks for the tips on the combo achievements, they helped me get them. There are now 3-star videos on YouTube for all maps, perhaps you could include them in your guide?

I just got 1250 on this! Go me!

This could be quite useful. I think playground 3 and cranes 2 are achievable 3*'s but the atriums, actino rise and shard one are defo the hardest.

I only got two stars on the following:
  • Actino Rise
  • Playground Three
  • New Eden
  • Atrium One
  • Atrium Two
  • Shard One
Try as I might, the closest I could come on New Eden was within 1 second over the target time. Grrr....

I didn't even bother trying to get three stars on ones, since I had such a hard time with them the first time around.

Actino Rise is just a pain. I know what I need to do, but I always manage to screw it up somewhere.
