Achievement Guide and Road Map


COSTUME QUEST
By: OG T UNIT

Overview:

Costume Quest is a cartoon role playing game with a Halloween twist. Your money is in the form of candy and your load outs are based off of your costumes. All the combat is turn based with quick time events to determine damage.

-Estimated achievement difficulty: 1/10
-Offline: 15 achievements for 200
-Online: 0
-Approximate amount of time to 200: 3-5 hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1
-Number of missable achievements: None - You can reload your saved game from right before the final battle after beating the game. You can use the Sarcophaguses to travel between areas.
-Do cheat codes disable achievements? N/A
-Does difficulty affect achievements? No
-Glitchy achievements: 0
-Unobtainable achievements: None

Battle Buds - 5 Defeat a monster in combat with a friend by your side.

- After freeing Everett from the gang of Mummies he will join you on your quest. The 1st Grubbin you defeat with Everett will pop the achievement.

Binary Bouncer - 10 Used the Robot costume to boost off of 15 different gates.

- This is done by using the ramps to access the backyards in the neighborhood. 15 ramps are in Auburn Pines and can be accessed before going through the black gate.

Do the Monster Bash - 10 Get the jump on 10 different monsters by pail bashing them to initiate combat.

- Once you visit all 20 houses in Auburn Pines you can enter the black gate. At this point you will see the monsters in the streets. Sneak up behind them and press to do a pail bash. Do this 10 times to get this achievement.

Make it Work - 10 Win the Autumn Haven Mall Costume Contest.

- Once you meet up with Lucy, you can enter the group costume contest in the mall. Lucy can be found in the tunnels after defeating BoJonn in the ARR-cade. You can then go talk to the judges in the orange shirts on the lower level of the mall. They will each tell you what kind of costume they like. Put on the correct costumes and return to the contest area to get the achievement.

- EDUCATIONAL costume with DEPTH: Statue of Liberty
- HI TECH costume: Robot
- CHIVALROUS costume: Knight

Dressed to Quest - 5 Acquire 5 Costumes.

- Robot: Start the game with this costume
- Knight: Save Everett from the Mummy bullies in Auburn Pines
- Statue of Liberty: Pattern and Materials from the Patriot kids in Auburn Pines
- Space Warrior: Pattern from the Autumn Haven Mall security guard and the materials from the friendly workers in the closed section of the mall.
- Unicorn: Pattern from winning the Costume contest in the mall. The pieces are hidden throughout the mall. The hardest one to find entails you falling through the railing of a higher level.
- Ninja: Pattern after collecting the 3 horns for the Monster Slayer Kids (Ninjas) on the 2nd level of the mall. The Materials are found scattered through the 1st floor of the mall. Talk to the kids to get them.
- Pumpkin: See the LAST GOURDIAN ACHIEVEMENT below. Each material piece is found by talking to the scarecrow on the 3 different stages.
- Vampire: Pattern from the carnival ticket-taker when you enter the fair. Materials are found in coffins around the same area.
- French Fries: Get this from Chip at the French Fry stand North of the carnival entrance.
- Black Cat: Get this costume as a reward for collecting all the Creepy Treat Cards.
- Grubbin: Get the pattern and the materials from the Grubbins in the corn maze. Enemies won't fight you while wearing this costume.

The Last Gourdian - 10 Acquire The Pumpkin Costume.

- The Pumpkin costume is found in multiple neighborhoods. You get the pattern and the pieces from talking to the scarecrow. The 1st is in the cemetery, the 2nd is in the lower level of the mall near the costume party, and the 3rd is right before the corn maze at the carnival.

Master Of Disguise - 10 Use every Costume Ability in Battle.

- In battle you have a charged attack set to the . On your 3rd turn you will be able to do your special attack. Do this with each costume except the Grubbin costume to get this achievement.

Leave Some For The Rest Of Us! - 15 Collect a total of over 4,000 candies.

- Collect a total of 4,000 candy, this is an accumulative achievement, you do not need to have 4,000 in your pail at once. I got this 1/2 way through the mall.

Downsized! - 15 Defeat BoJonn in battle.

- BoJonn is found after cutting through the cemetery. He is basically a really big Grubbin with a Megaphone. Take out his megaphone first as he will use it to continually summon other monsters. Otherwise he is pretty simple, just watch out for his attacks, as he is powerful.

Dozer Dodger - 15 Defeat Metxel in Battle.

- You fight Mextel after going through the black gate in the mall. Make sure to have someone wearing the Knight costume. If one of your players will say something indicating that they are going to be attacked next. Make sure to shield that player on that turn, or Mextel Will 1 hit kill them. Mextel has 1000 HP. When he gets to 0 HP his Bull Dozer blows up and he gets 850 more HP.

Sweet Justice - 25 Beat the game.

- This is done by defeating BIG BONES. I suggest fighting him after you reach level 10. I used:

Robot with the Headless Banshee stamp
Knight with the No-Eyes Vampire Bat stamp
Pumpkin with the Vegetarian Witches Brew stamp

Big Bones will start with 4000 HP. Once he gets down to 1000 HP he goes on a sugar high. The only real diffrence between the 2 modes is that you have less time to respond to the quick time event.

Mask-O'-Raider - 25 Complete All Quests in the Game.

- Robot Repair
- Programmed For Protection
- Pie For The Putterpan
- The Patriot's Party
- These Tombstones Aren't Styrofoam
- Suburbs Bobbing For Apples

- This Card Is So Rare
- Suburbs Collect 'em All
- Tickets For Treats
- Earn Your Monster Slayer Badge
- The Mall-O-Rail Is Broken

- This Card Is Rarer

- Defeat Dorsilla
- Stop The Monsters Once And For All (Defeat Big Bones)

All Decked Out - 15 Collect all Creepy Treat Cards.

- You get the cards by defeating monsters, the bobbing for apples quests, and trading with other kids. There are 54 cards in total.

They'll Be Worth A Lot Someday - 15 Collect all Battle Stamps.

Hey man. Thanks for starting a guide. I just wanted to ask though are you sure all the ramps are in Auburn pines? I went over every ramp and even double checked, looked all over the map. And the achievement hasn't popped for me. I went into the backyard areas behind your own house, top right corner etc. Also did going over all 15 give anything but the achievement?

I got the 15 in Auburn Pines by using all the ramps. Are you sure you used all of them? Including the ones protected by the Lincolns? There is at least one spot where there are two ramps to get out of a backyard, so you should go back to use both..

When you hit the ramp section to the left right before the black gate, there is one area when you can take one jump on the left or another in the same area. The one on the left just spits you back out on the streets, that was the easiest to miss. Or the on that jumps you back into the alley where you get the skate shoes maybe, and no other special bonuses, just the achievement. Just keep looking, they are all in there.

Good start. It's only 4,000 candies for the one cheevo. All the costumes are Vampire, Pumpkin King?, Robot, Spaceman?, Unicorn, Lady Liberty, Ninja, Knight, Cat, French Fries, and Monster. The Monster doesn't count towards the cheevo that involves using all of the specials.

To win the Mall costume quest I used a Knight, Lady Liberty, and Robot. You must talk to all three Judges wearing orage shirts before enterting the contest.

If anyone has trouble with the last boss, just use healing characters and using boss appropriate stamps. I got it np with Lady Liberty, the Unicorn, and the Vampire.

Is it cumulative from what you spent or do you have to hoard your candy?

It stacks you don't need to horde.



I think you encounter the apple guy 3 times and each time you need to bob three times.


You get a space man and ninja suit in the mall.




Does anyone have a list of where all the kids hide, I'm missing 2 in the mall and 2 at the fair

For anyone struggling with the Binary Bouncer achievement, there are about six-eight ramps near the end of the game which also count, got my achievement there.

The list of costumes you can obtain (Spoilers below, obviously):

From The Mall:
- Space Warrior
- Unicorn
- Ninja

From The Valley:
- French Fries
- Vampire

Special:
- Black Cat (Collect all cards)
- Jack O' Lantern (Talk to the scarecrow in the Cemetary, the Mall and by the gate at the Valley)

There's another, but its not relevant to the achievements really, so I'll keep that secret.

For Make It Work, the judges are all on the first floor, the women are obvious, one on each side. The man can be overlooked, he's on the left-hand side, sitting down near the top. They asked me for a Knight, Lady Liberty and a Robot, don't know if its random though.

Its a pretty easy 200, bar a little hunting for children or materials.

May the best man win. Just because there is already a guide, doesn't mean another member cannot create one. Both need some work. We'll see when they are done, which is better.

Usually when someone else starts a guide, it's bad form to start one too. Especially because you can easily hi-jack their info/work. Why not just help contribute to this one?

I have already stated in my own thread that i had started my guide before this one was posted, of which at the time of posting had little to no detail on it, so i carried on with mine, i still havnt gotten around to updating my guide to the finish, im missing about 1/2 the detail i want right now.

I suggest you read over the achievement guide rules. Here is an excerpt:

"If you posted first that does not mean you own that forum with your guide. Moaning and complaining about other users and their attempts will not be tolerated."

The thing is, it is just easier to create your own sometimes, where you have full control over the information that is placed within. Just because you provide information, doesn't mean the achievement guide creator will put it in there. I don't see an issue with more than one guide, the more information, the better.

If they try to hijack information from the other guide and post it as their own, that my friend, is copyright.

You should mention that a lot of the candy which is lying around and in bins etc respawn before you defeat the final boss, and that some of the battle stamps are not avaliable until the end either.

You have a few other options--I had a ninja who used Kitsune's Shroud to protect whichever character was targeted with Dozer's charge attack. Also, the Egg on your Face battle stamp disrupted the witch's charge attach when I fought her so I would image it would work against Mextel too.

You have misspelled HP in this sentence "Dozer blows up and he gets 850 more XP."

Also you have named the achivement The Last GORDIAN, not Gourdian within the Dressed to quest section.
