Achievement Guide

Good Start
10 Complete level 1 in less than 3 minutes.

Follow Strategy listed in Endurance.


Two Levels
10 Complete level 2 while playing an Xbox Live CO-OP game.

Play on LIVE and beat the boss at the end, once you reach level 3 it will unlock. Note: If you die and your partner does not only your partner will get the achievement.


Three Levels
15 Complete level 3 in Single Player or Multi-Player mode.

This one can be done in Arcade or on LIVE. Best done on LIVE because you'll have someone watching your back. Beat the boss at the end and when you enter the 4th level it will unlock. Note: If you die and your partner does not only your partner will get the achievement.


Four Levels
20 Complete level 4 in Single Player mode.


This one is a little difficult if your new to Contra. Takeing your time is the best way to get this take small steps, and make sure your shooting whatever comes at you. Once you beat the last boss and enter level 5 it will unlock.


Five Levels
30 Complete level 5 in Single Player or Multi-Player mode.

This one is tough. Best done on multiplayer. Once you reach the boss and you destroy it the achievement will unlock right after you level the level. Note: If you die and your partner does not only your partner will get the achievement.


Armory
15 Collect 5 different weapon types.


This one is easy. On the first level shoot down the first two weapons and pick them up. A few seconds later another weapon will float by shoot it down and pick it up. Once you finish the helicopter battle another weapon will float by shoot it down and pick it up. Now once you reach the second level shootdown the the weapons and pick them up one is a lazer, the other a shell. After doing this the achievement should unlock.



Good Score
10 Reach level 2 with a score of 100,000 or more.


What i did for this one is at the beginning of the game get the spread gun and shoot everything. By the time you reach the helicopter you should have around 30,000 points. After beating the helicopter and makeing it to the boss battle once you beat it you should have a score of around 155,000.


Team Players
20 Score 300,000 points in an Xbox Live CO-OP game, while still alive.


This might be difficult depending on how you do in the game. If you can make it past the second boss you and your partner you have either 300,000 or around 280,000. Play a little bit through level 3 and you should unlock it. If your partner is completely dead before your reach 300,000 you will not get the achievement.


Shot Down
15 Destroy the helicopter without dying once.

You can not die during the helicopter battle. You can die during the level just not during the battle. Shoot the helicopter untill a blue flame appears on top of it and shoot that flame the helicopter should blow up and you will get the achievement.


Elite Soldiers
10 Both players possess a Spread Gun at the same time at some point in the game.


In the first level one person should pick up the spread. Halfway through the seconed level you can get the other spread as long as both of you are alive and have spreads you will get the achievement. You can also get two spread on level 3 also one spread on level 4.


Endurance
10 Both players must complete level 1 without losing lives in an Xbox Live CO-OP game.


Ok here is the strategy I use in CO-OP. One person need to get the spread the other the missle gun. The person with the missle gun will run and shoot forward the one with spread will shoot upwards and watch the missle man's back. Once you reach the helicopter battle one person should shoot down the missle gun and make sure the miss guy gets it. This will upgrade his weapon to shoot faster and further makeing the battle quick. After this running to the last boss, the spread gun should be shooting forwards and the missles should be shooting upwards towards the enemies. As long as none of you die the achievement will unlcok at the start of level 2.



Master
35 Complete the game using only 1 credit.


The hardest achievement in the game. All I can say is two things. Play through contra a few times, get a feel for the levels and get your strategy down. The other thing is to TAKE YOUR TIME. If you rush through levels you will die. If you don't loose all your lives you will get the achievement after the last boss fight. Note: It is not yet known if this can be done in multiplayer.

You know if you take your time and get the super spread you can go as slow as you want right? I take my time through the seconed level using the supre spread destroying everything.

For some reason, getting the Super Spreader is the hardest part for me. I can't seem to drop that Helo without dieing very easily with the single Spreader. I can drop it no problem with the Double Rocket but I have trouble taking the turrets out on the helo. Once I drop the helo I'm fine till Level 3 or even Level 4 at times. (In Co-op I can maintain weapon control almost till the end of 5.) But, in Single Player it's a different story. Level 1, strangely enough is the hardest to get through without losing my weapons. Once I'm through I'm pretty much ok but getting through is frustrating.

Has anyone found out if you can get the "MASTER" achievement in Co-Op? I am on the edge about this game, but have a friend who is a Contra Master, and would be able to rack up a lot of points off this game (even though I hate Contra and can't see why there is another one released) playing through with him.

From what I have been hearing, it's only possible in Arcade Mode (Single Player). Butters7 and I crushed it in Co-op with quite a few lives left and did not get the achievement. Although the acheivement doesnt stipulate Arcade mode like the Bulletproof Achievement in the original Contra did, it seems like that's the only way to get it.

I'm pretty sure it's arcade only.

I have been trying for the past 1.5 weeks trying to get the MASTER achievement.

I always get fricking owned once I get to the 4th level with all those Alien clones running around. I've gotten to the point where I can get there without dying and with the super spread.

is it me, or is having the super grenade launcher the way to go?

the double rocket launcher is easily the best weapon to use in this game, mostly because it destroys bosses almost immediately and you don't have to keep pressing the shoot button, you just hold it down. If you can make it to the level 4 boss with the double rocket launcher, you should beat him no problem. Just stand directly under him and unload with the double launcher and he'll be dead in like 7 seconds. level 5 is a different story, as you'll almost certainly die at least once and lose the gun, then it's up to your gaming skills to beat the final boss and try for the master achievement (which is still the hardest achievement i've ever tried for and gotten)
