A-mission guide (The Strongest & Fastest achievement)

Every action stage has 3 objectives (C, B, and A). Once you complete one, you'll unlock the next. The C mission is always "beat the level" and you'll clear all these during the story. You can access these missions either through "Trial" mode at the main menu (once you've unlocked the level in Adventure mode) or in the Adventure Fields. The B and A objectives vary from character to character. B missions have been omitted from this guide as they should be easy enough to beat without any assistance. Below are videos for clearing the A missions:



Sonic: A mission: Beat the level in a certain time (time varies on each level)

Emerald Coast: Time to beat: 2 minutes

Windy Valley: Time to beat: 3 minutes:

Casinopolis: Time to beat: 5 minutes:

Icecap: Time to beat: 4 minutes

Twinkle Park: Time to beat: 3 minutes:

Speed Highway: Time to beat: 2 minutes, 30 seconds:

Red Mountain: Time to beat: 3 minutes:

Sky Deck: Time to beat: Time to beat: 5 minutes:

Lost World: Time to beat: 4 minutes, 30 seconds:

Final Egg: Time to beat: 4 minutes, 30 seconds:



Tails:
A mission: Beat an even faster Sonic (Robotnik for Speed Highway)

Windy Valley:

Casinopolis:

Icecap:

Sky Deck:

Speed Highway:



Knuckles:
A mission: Find all shards in 1 minute (2 minutes for Sky Deck)
*NOTE* As the location of the emerald shards is randomized each time you play, doing a video guide would be pointless. The easiest way to beat the A missions is to find the emerald shards but DON'T COLLECT THEM. When you know where they are, pause the game and select restart. You'll start the level with the timer reset to zero, but the emerald locations will be the same. All you have to do is get to each location in time.



Amy:
Twinkle Park: Time to beat: 2 minutes

Hot Shelter: Time to beat: 6 minutes, 30 seconds

Final Egg: Time to beat: 2 minutes, 30 seconds



Big the Cat:
A mission: Catch a 2000 gram fish then Froggy

General tips:
-I find it easier always using the fast reel rather than the slow reel.
-Once you've got the life belt, it's possible to get as close as possible to the fish before you reel it in.
-Try and set your catch up so that the fish is swimming into a wall. Bigger fish can pull away by more than 20 metres; if they're swimming into a wall, they'll just stay in the same spot.
-Hot Shelter is the easiest mission to try first as most of the fish are 2000g+ and it's a small area so they'll inevitably get caught on a wall.

*IMPORTANT*
Before attempting Big's A missions, it's important that you've collected all 4 lure power ups. The power ups make it easier to catch bigger fish and also increase the rate of 2000g+ fish spawning. 2000g+ fish don't spawn at all in Twinkle Park until you've got all 4 lures

Lure locations:

Twinkle Park:

Icecap:

Emerald Coast:

Hot Shelter:




E102 Gamma: Finish the level with a certain amount of time remaining

Final Egg: Time remaining: 2 minutes

Emerald Coast: Time remaining: 3 minutes

Windy Valley: Time remaining: 3 minutes:

Red Mountain: Time remaining: 3 minutes

Hot Shelter: Time remaining: 2 minutes

I could NEVER get the A on Emerald Coast. The first jump up to the bridge never worked for me, I remember trying dozens of times. And this was before youtube was there to help me out.

To get the "Face a faster Sonic" missions all you do is go to Trial and pick Tails. Then complete the B mission for whichever stage which are the "Collect 50 rings and defeat Sonic" missions.

Then next time you play that stage after you complete mission B you will get mission A which are the "Face an even faster Sonic" missions.

Same applies to all of Tails's trials, must complete B mission in order to play A mission.

How the fuck do you even do all of these things? I am seeing techs that I can only dream of doing.

Well the only 2000g fish you're gonna catch is one of those mech fish and you gotta have 4 lures but you said you've got it.

Best thing to do is to get into the water and check the size of the fish, there's generally 2 sizes of mech fish. One size is totally bloated and massive, like it'd barely fit inside of Big. The other is weak, runty and pathetic and you'd probably fit 3 of them inside big. If you don't see any crazy big ones then just redo the level until you find one.

On two levels I caught non-mechanical fish over 2000g, Hot Shelter had a red hammerhead that was 2200 something.

That was in reference to the above post, Twinkle Park. There's no shark in Twinkle Park.

The tech I am talking about is on the very first level where you are coming up to the walkway and you skip that entire part. It starts at 0:06 and ends at 0:11.

You need momentum, the more momentum you have the higher and farther you jump. So you just charge up your spin dash for about half a second and then jump as soon as you release, try it a few times and find out the best distance away from the upper pathway you need to be.

You should be able to clear Sonic's Emerald Coast A-Rank without doing anything super crazy as long as you mash your spin dash to go faster.

The sonic levels are by far the worse. But this video for Sonic's Red Mountain just doesn't work, I have played red mountain over a dozen times and memorized what to do, and I still cant do it.

There has to be an additional shortcut or an entirely different method to go about doing this.

I'm looking on youtube for a better video because this red mountain video just doesn't work. Does anyone here know of a better video?
