-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 2
-Number of missable achievements: 0 (Levels may be replayed at any time)
-Do cheat codes disable achievements? No cheats
-Does difficulty affect achievements? Yes (Hard as Nails). Have to beat game on normal first before you can unlock hard difficulty.
-Glitchy achievements: None

-Extra equipment needed? After beating normal, you will gain the laser assault rifle. It will help out extremely in progress of getting a few achievements.
This game does not prove to be very difficult. You will die a few times, and some points require a little patience, but overall you should find the whole experience easy and mildly entertaining. Achievements do not stack in this game as far as difficulty goes. Also at any time you may view game statistics through the main menu or the start menu. It will show the progression of many things that relate to the achievements.
Step 1: Normal
Play this game on normal, as you cannot access hard mode yet. You will be getting the majority of your points in the process. Remember to shoot the mushrooms when you come to the specific level, read the achievement descriptions for more info! Once you complete normal, you may choose to wrap up anything you missed that you were close to getting via the level selection menu. Once you hit New Game, you will be deleting all of your progress and statistics! I do advise to gain all of the 0 point achievements in this playthrough, and die as much as you want!
Step 2: Hard Mode
After completing the game on normal you will play on Hard mode. This mode is a much quicker as well as an easier experience. You obtain the laser assault rifle in the first mission right after the mini tutorial. You get unlimited ammo (though there is a cool down) and everything dies in 1-2 hits. The Utahraptor dinosaur will require 5, so stay back when encountering them. Luckily there are only around 7 of them in the game. Turret battles and Spike will require normal strategy, as the gun proves worthless in these areas of the game. You will also have played the levels before and will have everything down as far as gameplay. Try your hardest not to die using the method of restarting from checkpoint when you’re screen is blurry. If you do die you can just replay the level again (on medium if you want though you will not have the laser assault rifle). You will also have tons and tons of one shot kills, so if you missed that achievement you will get it here without problems!
If you for some reason didn’t get a specific achievement after both playthroughs, you may replay a level to finish up and can always check your statistics to see your progress. I have laid out the achievements in order as they will be obtained (in most cases) so that you don’t have to scroll the page as much.

Allergic Reaction 0 Killed by thorny plants.
This will be the first achievement you get. Go up to the thorny plants (there are tons around and easy to see) and run back and forth in them. Takes a little bit of trying to dye, but you’ll soon suffer.
Clever Girl 0 Died in a Raptor Melee QTE.
Run to grab the pistol. A raptor will jump on top of you and the game will play out a Quick Time Event (I think that's what it means). Don’t push the button indicated at the top of the screen. Now you have 2 achievements for 0 points. Off to a great start!
Woah 25 Kill 1 dinosaur during an Adrenaline Burst.
The game will explain how to use adrenaline rush. This time you will be getting points for your efforts, so just kill the raptor while in that mode.
Not so Fast 50 Kill 3 Raptors during a single Adrenaline Burst.
This can be gotten in so many places, don’t worry if you don’t get this early. I got this while using the first turret that the game introduces you to. The bullet icon to your left on your HUD will show how much time you have left indicated by red filling. I was able to stop my adrenaline rush by letting go, turn my turret, and engage in it again and still get the achievement. Another method is when you first get your grenades, there are three raptors to throw a grenade at. Throw it and use adrenaline before it hits. Furthermore you will encounter many different chances for this via scorpions and mini raptors.
Six Foot Turkey 25 Kill a Utahraptor.
Story related, can't be missed.
Pack Hunting 25 Kill 3 Raptors with one grenade.
Once you get the grenades, throw it at the oncoming (but slow) raptors. If you somehow manage to fail your attempt, you can reload the checkpoint or just continue out. There are lots of places you can get this. There are a few battles against mini raptors. If you run around a lot letting them group up, you can get around 5 in one grenade.
Adrenaline Junkie 50 Kill 25 dinosaurs during Adrenaline Bursts.
You should get this through pretty quick, just engage adrenaline whenever you have it available and fighting.
Handyman 25 Complete any fortification objective without the dinosaurs getting in.
Once you get to your first fortification objective, you must make sure you repair every area that is being attacked while killing what’s attacking it. Run around in a circle and sprint. The other fortifications are a bit tougher, so use this one for your achievement. Don’t leave the area yet, look at the achievement below.
Preparing for the Future 25 Repair all broken entrances before unlocking the gate.
Once you’re done with the fort attack described above, just make sure to repair everything that is damaged. Once you can’t repair anything else, open the main gate.
Blast in the Past 25 Kill 20 Dinosaurs with grenades.
This should come pretty fast if you have been using grenades. There are a lot of instances where you can keep filling up your grenades as much as you want.
Welcome to the Jungle 30 Kill 50 Deinonychus.
Really no way to miss this, just get it from normal progression.
Outta Nails 25 Complete any fortification objective without repairing.
Once you get to your second fortification you will notice a big difference in the setup. Now it’s a point A to B wall. During this one you will not be repairing anything. Stand as far as you can back and kill anything that advances towards you. If this is at all a struggle, wait until hard mode in which you will be doing this method a lot.
Raptor Extinction 50 Kill 100 Deinonychus.
You should receive this through normal progression.
These are not the Hammer 50 Kill 20 dinosaurs using melee attacks.
After being comfortable with how your weapons damage enemies, you should be able to just finish them off with a melee attack. There are mini raptors you can do this on, but they seem to swarm you if you aren’t careful and in motion.
Die in a Fire0 Killed by fire or lava.
You are told to head towards a volcano and once you get to that level, jump in the lava.
Death from Below 25 Kill 1 Pterosaur with a grenade.
Once you get to Rise Above which is level 7, there will be tons of these flying around in a big circle. Just go to the edge and through all of your grenades in the air. If you are having terrible aim and luck, run on the bridges and they will begin flying directly at you. Reload afterwards.

Who Needs a Bug Zapper? 25 Kill 50 Pterosaurs in Rise
You can kill all the ones flying above at the start continuously, they re-spawn for a while. You will get a ton! Also kill the ones perched before they attack. Continue on and kill them when you see them.
Firepower 30 Kill 50 dinosaurs using stationary weapons.
I was one away from this achievement upon entering the level Tyrant King. There are tons of Pterosaurs flying around that you will have to kill and you will have no problem getting the achievement.
I'm the King 40 Kill a Tyrannosaurus.
Story related, can’t be missed.
Mari-Ouch 0 Killed yourself with an exploding mushroom.
On the level U-1226 (level 9) you will come across a ton of exploding mushrooms everywhere. Run into them to kill yourself and gain your last 0 point achievement. Make sure to destroy every one of these you see from this point on.
1-Up 25 Kill 1 enemy using an exploding mushroom.
While the scorpions are running by a mushroom, shoot it. At first this seems like it could be frustrating but it really isn’t. During the turret sequence if you don’t shoot any mushrooms you will have many attempts to do it. Otherwise, in one of the last levels there are tons more to shoot with mini raptors running around. I was getting triple kills!
Chicken Chaser 20 Kill 50 Velociraptors.
You will get this with normal progression. Mini raptors count!
Scorpion King 30 Kill 50 Scorpions.
You should get this easily while playing the game.
What a Prick 50 Survive a Spinosaurus attack.
Story related, can’t be missed.
Gunman 25 Kill a dinosaur using each weapon.
I would list where to find each weapon, but most of them you will have numerous attempts at obtaining. The boxes spread around contain ammo and the various guns if you want to switch them. There are only a few that you’ll only see rarely, and they are normally right there in front of you in a box with normal progression. So to make sure you aren’t worried, the most important weapon to I should tell you about is the RPG. When playing Special Delivery (level 10), you come across a running heard of dinosaurs. Run in the direction they are to get the RPG. The Auto Shotgun is your last weapon, so pick it up (located noticeably by a spaceship). Kill a dinosaur, get your achievement, and reload, this gun didn’t help me one bit! You can also find it in the last level fighting Spike. In that instance, you will have to reload a chapter and kill a dinosaur with it. Also a weapon some may miss will be described. "Model 1855, on the 2nd level that is very easy to miss. After you finish the turret section where you need to kill a bunch of raptors running towards you, turn around and you'll find the gun in a weapon box." (Thanks TheFalcon)
Crispy Critters 25 Kill 5 Scorpions with the RPG.
You will be getting this on level 13. Once you get to the scorpions, you will notice they come at you 2-3 at a time. There is a little stone archway they pass, so go ahead and shoot the side of that to kill them. You can also just shoot the ground before they get to you. Really easy! The game even keeps track.
Dinomite! 25 Kill 50 Raptors with a single shot each.
A single shot can count as a lot of things. Honestly if I could, I would have forgotten about this on normal and saved it for my hard playthrough, as you get the laser assault rifle that kills most of them in one hit. At the end of the game I had 124 kills with a single shot because of that gun, and without trying. Otherwise if you want it fast, kill as many raptors as you can with a shot to the head or at close range with a shotgun. The mini raptors do count. You may also use grenades to get this achievement!
Plumber Stomachache 25 Destroy 50 exploding mushrooms.
All of these have Mario references! Anyways, you should get this during the 13th level. The ones that explode on their own do count, don’t worry. I was barely over 50 by the end of the level. If you do get below 50, just replay level 9 in mission select.
Life Will Find a Way 50 Complete the game.
Story related, can’t be missed.
Hard as Nails 100 Complete the game on the Hard difficulty.
You unlock Hard mode after you complete it on normal. This will start a new game and erase all your awesome stats and progress. That’s okay because this mode is much easier than medium! You will get a laser assault rifle. This gun is located right after the brief tutorial in level 1, by the skeleton. The only things this gun will not help you with, are turret battles and against Spike. So, when facing Spike use the RPG and toss grenades. Do your best to hold him at bay at the supply crate, spamming down when you need more ammo. Be slow while shooting him and he won’t move much! The turrets take patience, especially against the T-Rex fight. I’ve seen a few people give up on this easy fight. The workaround is to just shoot the T-Rex and when it turns to leave, let it. I’m sure most people shoot it until there gun overheats while it runs away. Take your time and instead, kill the flying ones as much you can. This worked easily after trying it a few times with no luck. As far as protecting the fort against Spike at the end, I have never had a problem with it. Use grenades and rockets at will with your unlimited supply crate just a short sprint away. Don’t use anything else.
Nuck Chorris Rex 100 Complete the game without dying.
Now you should only have a couple levels left to finish without dying. Go to level select, and those levels that you need to replay have a skull on them. I was going to do this one on medium but had several levels to play and found Hard mode much easier to survive with such a powerful weapon. If your screen is becoming very blurry, hit start and restart from checkpoint. If you die, even when hitting start before the screen tells you that you died, you will need to replay the whole level again. You can replay any level on medium if you want as well and still get the achievement. I personally thought level 9 was easier on medium because of the cool down on the laser assault rifle on hard made the mini raptor battle a bit difficult.

Great guide, was very helpful and got me through the game in 6 hours. I like how you laid out the achievements chronologically, it really made it easy to see where I was and what to expect next.
There is 1 important detail you left out.
There is a weapon, the Model 1855, on the 2nd level that is very easy to miss. After you finish the turret section where you need to kill a bunch of raptors running towards you, turn around and you'll find the gun in a weapon box. I missed this on my first playthrough and had to replay the level to find it and I'm pretty sure this is the only place you can get it.

Thanks, I appreciate it! I added it to the guide with credit to you. You may be the only one that has read it. I like putting them in order as I got them (found it very useful when reading the Mini Ninja guide). Sadly, people usually complain about it : / But thanks a lot for giving your input

One thing - maybe put in the guide that you should shoot every exploding mushroom that you come accross? I was just going along with your guide, and didn't actually read ahead, so when I got to the last lvl I had missed a lot of shrooms. Not a big deal as I am going back through for my hard playthrough - but that would have been helpful.

Great guide, thank you! Finally got around to finishing off the last 200 points with this. Nuck Chorris is definitely so much easier to do on hard with the lazer gun. the 2 t-rex battle was probably the most difficult part because of the damn bird-dinosaurs, so I went back and re-did this part on normal for the achievement.

Yes, just an overlooked error. I did mention this in the Introduction of the roadmap as well as Step 2: Hard Playthrough. So it was all there and since acheivements do not stack, you wouldn't have been screwed out of anything I fixed it just for you!

Nuck Chorris Rex
Hi, on the level select page I have no levels with a skull on them. I believe this means I shouldn't have to replay any for the Nuck Chorris Rex achievement but it hasn't unlocked.
Has anybody else encountered this? I still have my hard playthrough when / if I get round to it but wanted to get this out of the way first.
|05-08-2012, 07:44 AM||#26|
I'm following user suggestions directly from the achievement list and they suggested to just replay level 1 on Hard difficulty. Try that.
