Updated Portal Achievement Guide

This is an updated achievement guide for the arcade game Portal: Still Alive. All of the achievements can be obtained by playing through the storyline once and then playing the 20 advanced maps. Good luck and happy achievement hunting.

Go for the Gold 15
Win a gold metal on a challenge map.

Obtaining a gold medal on a challenge map requires you to exit the test camber using the fewest possible number of portals or steps or finish within a certain time limit. There are a number of different chambers where you can get this very easily.

Chamber 1

Chamber 4

Chamber 14


Out of the Blue 25
Once you have control of both portals, only enter the orange portal.

You obtain the advanced portal gun in chamber eleven. For the remaining levels, you have to make sure that you only step through the orange portal. Be especially careful not to sit in the middle of a portal because the game may consider that to be passing through the blue portal. Just move through the portal as quickly as you can. Save frequently, so you can reload if you accidentally step through the blue one. The achievement will actually unlock right after you destroy the last piece of GLaDOS to beat the game.


Rat's Tale 15
Find all the Rat Man dens.

There are five Rat Man dens in the game. They appear as scribbling and handprints on the wall. In addition to the typed descriptions, there is a video that shows all five locations.

The first can be found in test chamber sixteen. After you pass three turrets and you’ll find a platform with two cubes stacked on top of each other. Move the two cubes, duck down, and go into the space behind them. You’ll find the writing on the wall to the left.

The second is in test chamber seventeen. Once you’ve passed by the two energy balls, fall over the edge and shoot a portal behind the projecting wall panel. Shoot the other portal on the wall next to the portal and pass through to find the writing on the wall.

The third is in test chamber eighteen. Use the portals to get onto the platform across from the first one. Once there, crouch down and slip into the alcove on the left. You’ll find the writing on the wall.

The fourth is in test chamber nineteen. Fall down the deep pit that you crossed on a giant pipe earlier and then go right into an alcove.

The fifth is in test chamber nineteen as well. After the fourth Rat Man’s Den, you’ll find three turrets. Pass them and then go into an alcove to access another room with a turret. When you dispose of the turret, walk to the back of the room and look to your right to find the alcove with the den.



Is Anyone There? 20
Complete the game without ever taking a bullet.

To get this achievement, you have to avoid the automated turret fire. You can destroy turrets by knocking them over, but be careful because they will fire off several rounds before they are destroyed, so you can be accidentally shot. You can also pick them up and turn them, so they face the wall. In some cases, its very easy to just place a portal high on the wall or ceiling far away from you and then throw another portal underneath the turret, transporting it far away. It will almost certainly fall over and deactivate.

Turrets can be found in test chambers sixteen (12 turrets), eighteen (4 turrets), and nineteen (14 turrets). The achievement will unlock as you walk across the long catwalk leading to the chamber where you find GLaDOS. Below is a video demonstrating how to get this achievement.



Saw That One Coming 5
Cause a rocket sentry to destroy its own rocket when the rocket has been redirected back towards it.

To unlock this achievement, you have to place a portal behind a rocket sentry and then place another portal on an adjacent wall. Just stand in front of the second portal and dodge out of the way once the rocket is fired. The rocket should pass through the portals and hit the sentry. Below is a video demonstrating this on test chamber nineteen.



The Camera Adds 10 Pounds 10
Knock a turret over with a security camera.

Simply use a portal to knock a camera off of the wall. Then place one portal above the turret and the second portal under the camera. The camera will fall through the portal and knock over the turret, unlocking the achievement.

Turrets can be found in test chambers sixteen (12), eighteen (4), and nineteen (14) Below is a video demonstrating how to get this achievement with the first turret in test chamber sixteen.



Like a Rat 20
Trap yourself in a test chamber so that GLaDOS has to help you continue.

This achievement requires you to trap yourself in a room, so that GLaDOS has to help you escape. The first place where you can do this is in test chamber thirteen. Below is a video demonstrating how to do this.



A Feeling Like Floating 5
Dissolve a turret.

To dissolve a turret, you can throw it in a particle device, carry it through the force field that surrounds the exit to a test chamber, or throw it in the toxic sludge that you find in some of the levels. This can first be accomplished with the last turret in chamber sixteen. Below is a video demonstrating this strategy.



Tests Like Chicken 15
Find the chicken's test results.

The test chicken’s results can be found in test chamber nineteen. The achievement will unlock after you pick up the clipboard with the results on them.

Exceptional help on the "Is Anyone There", much better to do this with actual help rather than a generic "avoid turret fire". Once again, amazing guide by far.

Good job on the guide this game was so fun but short and that's probably why they made these hard out-of-the-way achievments. I finally have 200g instead of it being exsausting, and a pain in the ass I though it was real fun. I only used the guides for 17&18 advanced and the trapped like a rat so I am proud of myself.

For Tests Like Chicken, you can get it in Still Alive Chamber 7, too.
When you drop on the cubes, you can get through the broken pipe there and pick up a chicken clipboard.

Great guide, though

www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSPpGLvJjeo out of the blue walkthrough.
not my video but this guy kirby has a walkthrough to get all of the story mode achievements in one go.
the rest of the videos are on his video page.
maybe they should be an extra part of the guide
