Achievement Guide and Road Map



Rights of Use: This guide is for x360a and x360a only. If you wish to use this guide in a different location please contact me, and ask my permission first.


Note 1. For the most part this guide is complete, I just need to mop up a few details and fix grammar/spelling issues. Hope this is helpful guys, and happy hunting!


Note 2. For simplicity sake, I have reorganized the achievement list in a specific order(I will reorder them correctly when I submit the guide). The order that I am using is: Campaign Progression/Hardcore/Miscellaneous. If you wish to jump straight to a category press ctrl+F then type the category you want followed by "achievements." If you wish to search a specific achievement press ctrl+F and type the name of the achievement.

Road Map

Overview:
Estimated Achievement Difficulty: 6/10(920) 8/10(1000)
Offline: 50 (1000)
Online: 0 (0)
Approximate Amount of Time to 1000/1000: 12-15+ hours
Minimum Number of Playthroughs needed: 2
Number of Missable Achievements: None (chapter select)
Do Cheat Codes Disable Achievements: No cheat codes
Does Difficulty Affect Achievements: Yes
Glitchy Achievements: 1: "Fistful of Burrito"
Unobtainable Achievements: None
Extra Equipment Needed: Kinect Sensor

Introduction. The Gunstringer is set as a play which takes place in the Old West. The game is played as though it were acted out on a theatre stage. It begins with live action footage in a theater where people have attended to see the show. The setting of the play revolves around a character known simply as The Gunstringer, an undead marionette sheriff betrayed by his posse. The game begins as he rises from his grave, bent on revenge.

Step 1. Campaign. In this play through you will simply be completing and enjoying the game. You will unlock all progression achievements during this play through along with as many other achievements you can get.

Step 2. Hardcore. In this play through you will be going through on hardcore. The differences between normal and hardcore are they shoot and reload 3 times the normal rate and their are traps spread across that map. Damage is twice that of standard mode. And the final change: If you die you get kicked straight to the dashboard.

Step 3. Gold Medals. On this step you will need to go back and collect gold medals on the levels you did not get gold on while going through the game on normal and hardcore. View "Perfectionists" for details on gold medals.

Step 4. Mop Up. On this step you will need to "mop up" or finish the remaining achievements you may or may not have completed during the previous steps.

Conclusion. The Gunstringer is not a easy game achievement wise. The first 700 or so gamerscore is relatively easy and gained by simple completion of the game, where as the rest requires you to complete the four plays on hardcore and reach gold in all levels. However, this game is very enjoyable and one of the best Kinect titles to date. You will have lots of fun shooting baddies along the journey of your additional 1000 gamerscore. If you have stuck through with the Road Map and Guide, CONGRATULATIONS on your well earned completion.

Total Awards: 3 (more» ...)
A Fistful of Revenge 50
Ride "Burrito" the Dog into the sunset.

Story Related. You unlock this achievement once the game ending scene is complete. However, there is a glitch that seems to happen for some people. After the cut scene is over the achievement may not unlock, if so simply restart your XBox 360 and it should unlock on launch.

Hardcore Achievements-

The Lone Star 20
Finish an act while playing on Hardcore Mode.

Complete any act while playing on Hardcore Mode. You unlock hard core mode by buying it from the Bonus store. Obviously the easiest and quickest act to do this on is the very first act.

Strings of Steel 50
Beat every play in one session. On Hardcore Mode. Also, never die.

This is by far the hardest achievement in the game. You will need to beat all four plays, which have 5 acts each, in one session, in other words without exiting the game to the main menu. You must also be on hardcore mode. Oh, one last thing: you can't die. You have hearts on your screen to show your current health so keep an eye on that. I think it is best told how you will be affected by this:


Quote:
"The developers say the mode is anything but “fair,” and here’s why: Enemies will load, reload and shoot at thrice the speed of what they normally would, traps will appear in the most unwanted and deadliest of places and should you find yourself in the situation of having been shot, you lose double the health without it regenerating. But here’s the real kick in nuts: You die, you get booted back to the Xbox dashboard without the possibility of continuing your game where you left off, meaning you will have no option but to play it through in one sitting, which happens to be the way to go if you’d like that prestigious “Strings of Steel” achievement."


Here is a video of a playthrough of the game on hardcore HERE! (THANKS TO HOSEO22)

The Last Undead Boy Scout 20
Collect a gold medal, hardcore award, and 2P award in a single act.

For this achievement you must complete an act of a play collecting a gold medal, hardcore award, and a 2P award. The gold medal is obtained by acquiring a high score by completing the level fast and accurately. It will also increase your chances by enabling modifiers. A hardcore award is obtained by completing the act on hardcore. Finally a 2P award is obtained by completing an act with two players.

Miscellaneous Achievements-

Seven Shooter 5
Defy laws of physics by shooting more than six enemies without reloading.

The earliest and easiest place to do this is in the prologue. While running you will encounter a stationary train to your left. There will be 7 or 8 birds. Quickly target them all and pull your arm back. You will more than likely get 7 of them.

Money is the Best Medicine 20
Earn cash, not health, for every heart in an act.

THe hearts are the black cirlces with a red heart in the center. You have to shoot them to collect them. In order to get cash instead of health, you must have full health when you shoot them. It is suggested that you try to complete this achievement in one of the earlier acts as they are the easiest. There are normally only 3 hearts in a single act. Just keep practicing until you get the level perfect. If you practice the method for boosting money you may be able to unlock it on that level. However, if you wish to hit two birds with one stone, this achievement can easily be obtained while going for the "Undead and Untouchable" because you can not be damaged once and there are four hearts on the level that are easy to see. The first one at the first purple fire. The second one on the long bridge on the right and the third one is right after the second except one the long bridge on the right of the second set of bridges. Finally the fourth one can be found midway through the second purple fire.

Russian Chicken 10
In a shootout, play chicken with a bullet before shooting it.

This one is a little tricky. You must let the bullet get right in front of you then quickly shoot it. You will most likely get this during natural progression.

Perfect Performance 25
Win gold medals in all acts of a single play.

Refer to "Perfectionist."

Sellout 10
Buy an achievement from the bonus store.

Under exclusives in the bonus store, one of the items to buy is called sell out. It is $66,666. Simply save up and buy this when you can.

Gold Medallist 20
Reach a Gold Medal score on a single act.

Refer to "Perfectionist."

Why Would You Even Do This? 25
Complete an act with every single modifier enabled.

For this achievement you must complete an act of a play with every modifier enabled. There are four modifiers. Ghoststringer mode, Meatstringer mode, No-Fail Mode, and Sepia Mode. You must first buy these modes before you can use them. To enable modifiers, select the play you want to do, select the act, and finally select modifiers. You can choose which ones you want to enable. Just enable all of them for this achievement. This can be done as early on as you want as long as you have bought those four modes from the bonus store.

Big Spender 25
Purchase everything in the bonus store.

Go to the Bonus store and buy everything possible. This includes: Exclusives, photos, etc. It will cost approximately $850,000. You earn money by completing levels and killing enemies. The best way to boost money is to repeat play 4 act 2 over and over again. It will net you around $50,000+ every time. It is a long but, entertaining level.

Awesomeness Detected 20
Do something really awesome.

For this achievement you must obtain a 45+ kill streak. There is only one location in the game that can even pass 28 and that is in play 3 act 4. During this act towards the end of the level you must slide down a rope while killing enemies flying on rockets. Once you grab the first taco you can not let any enemy damage you otherwise you will forfeit the achievement. The second taco will give you more time and you have a total of 54 kills if you kill everyone. This achievement is not as hard as it sounds. The enemies spawn in waves. Each group follows in a line so hold your reticule still at the front of the line and they all will run into your bullets.

Lucky Prize Winner 15
Find an achievement hidden in a piece of concept art.

You simply just need to buy the concept art that contains this achievement, nothing else. The concept art is a few pages down and on the bottom row. It is titled "Dis Best Rock." Simply back out of the store and the achievement will unlock.

Hundred Thousand Dollar Baby 20
Spend a whole chunk of money in the bonus store.

For this achievement you must spend over $100,000 dollars which is roughly a 1/8 of the total money you will need to purchase everything in the game.

Perfectionist 30
Win a gold medal in every act of every play.

You are rated on how well you do in an act. To obtain a gold medal you must kill the majority of, if not all, the enemies, and rarely be damaged. Try gaining a hardcore or 2P award(s) to add bonus points. A guide for every level in the game can be found HERE! Thanks to Hoseo22.

The Backwards Bandit 20
Complete a level with "Lefty Mode" enabled.

You must complete a level with "lefty mode" enable. To enable lefty mode you must select settings in the main menu then turn on left mode by choosing the option that say "I suffer from left handedness." This will make you control your puppet with your right hand and shoot with your left. Easiestly done in the prologue.

Hot Lead Pusher 20
Get a crazy high kill streak.

You can start a kill streak by collecting a taco during an act. The tacos are always resting in the hands of the skeleton hand coming out of the ground. You will need to get 25 kills and the best place to do it is on play 3 where you ride the rocket.

Turbo Deflation 10
Deflate the first boss in under 30 seconds.

The first boss appears at the end of the prologue. The best way to kill him in thirty seconds is by staying out of cover and quickly targetting as many body parts as possible and firing. Do this rapidly and you should be able to get it in the first few tries. If you do not do it in thirty seconds the prologue is very short so you can just restart the level.

No Insurance 15
Don't scratch the paint while piloting a paddleboat.

The paddleboat is found on play 2 act 3. By "don't scratch the paint" it means you can not take any damage. You will have to jump over some mines and other small boats. You will also have to navigate between some mines along a narrow path. Navigating through the mines are not to difficult but be careful when jumping over the other set of mines. Make sure not to jump until your boat's front is very close to the mine in front of you. Other wise you may not reach the required length to jump the mine and land the back of your ship on the tip of the mine.

Took a Bullet for the Team 10
Take down the developers.

At the end of the game you will have a chance to shoot the audience of developers. Simply shoot a few and when the sequence is over then the achievement will unlock.

Two Hearts to Live 20
Complete all acts in a play without ever dropping to one heart.

In a play you have hearts that represent health. A play consists of 5 acts. You must complete the play without dropping to only one heart. You can add health by shooting hearts that appear along the level. The best play to do this on is the first play.

Living Large in the Saddle 10
Hoard all the tacos and hearts in an act.

For this achievement you must collect all of the tacos and hearts in a single act. The hearts are black circles with red hearts in the center and the tacos are, well, tacos, on top of a skeleton hand that comes out of the ground. I suggest act 2 of play 1 as all tacos and hearts are very straight forward and hard to miss. (This can not be done in the Prologue)

With a Little Help from a Friend 15
Complete an act with a friend.

Grab a friend and start up a play with them in cooperative. You only have to complete one act of the play in order to unlock this achievement. (This does not include the prologue)

What's Next? 5
Visit the Download Content screen to see what new content is available.

In the main menu select the Download Content screen. It will show you what is now available for download for The Gunstringer. When you visit the screen the achievement will unlock. This is one of those freebie achievements.

Tin Marksman 5
Shoot all the cans in the Prologue.

In the prologue there are tin cans that resemble a beer can. It is white with yello stripes and you have to shoot the first 5 in the introduction to shooting section of the prologue. Here is a list of there locations:
5 in the intro
2 along the left side of the path after you encounter a few goats
1 on a box before the train carts
2 in between the train carts
1 after picking up the taco, on top of a box next to a house

Here is a video guide too:


(CREDIT DUE: Video Uploader)

The Red Baron 25
Kill 100 enemies while strapped to a rocket in "The Great Wall of Vengeance".

On the act: "the Great Wall of Vengeance," you will be strapped to a rocket. While on this rocket you will have to kill 100 enemies. This achievement is incredibly easy. It is about a 5 minute ride and there will be tons of indians on the ground and swarms of samurais riding rockets in the air. The samurais are easy to kill if you just find a place the first one of the group is heading as all of the ones behind him go to the exact location. If you do decent you will probably unlock the achievement well before you complete the rocket ride.

Undead and Untouchable 20
Reach the end of "Requiem for a Gunstringer" without losing a single heart.

On the act: "Requiem for a Gunstringer" you must complete it without losing a heart. Your health is measured by multiple hearts. However, every time you are damage it only does half a heart. However, even if your heart becomes broken in half it still counts as losing it so you can not be damaged at all. First clear out the three skull walls and progress to the bridge area, as you make your way across the bridges hold right, left, right, and finally hold left one more time to make it pass the bridges, don't forget to jump at the tip of the bridges. If you are having trouble with these just remember to move your hand slowly and smoothly, same goes for the rolling heads and flying coffins. Now for the two purple fire trails simply stay in the center and zig zag between them. You shouldn't have any trouble with the puppet skeletons that fly at you but, if you do simply be aiming at the coffins before they come out. This achievement is difficult and will mostly likely take a few tries.

Back Seat Commentator 5
Listen to a different kind of narrator while you play.

In order to change your narrator, go to play/act select and select the level you want to play. One of the options will be to turn on the commentary. Do this and at the end of the act the achievement will unlock.

Blarg you're doing great with the guide. We don't seem to have a lot of discussion about this game right now, but doubtless people will pick it up over time and your guide will be super helpful.

yes, This game isnt getting the credit it deserves. Definitely one of the best kinect titles to date.

I've complete the game and did not once have a problem with kinect register like most games. It has a great story and enjoyable game play. Im just glad kinect is finally steering away from sports and work out games.

Im still having trouble figuring out the achievement "Do something awesome." Has anyone gotten that yet? Also the kill streak and the "tin marksman" .... im guessing the kill streak is 25? Ive been able to get to 24 multiple times and only had one oppurtunity in the game to go over that but I accidently got damaged around 20 kills and canceled my strength. And as far as the cans go.... I shoot everyone i see, but never unlocks... I also only see the cans in the very very beginning of the prologue. No where else.

The kill streak seems to be 40-50. I got it in either the Far East levels or the one right after that, I forget. You can do it in co-op, which helps a lot.

There are a lot of hidden-ish cans in the Prologue. For instance, there's one on the train on the left after you leave the starting point, and I think some others on the ground too. I still haven't found them all.

The kill streak is 25. Also the last tin can is by the house on the right just before you encounter those two dudes standing there having a chat, shortly before the Wavy Tube Man.

I freaking love this game. One question though; "Strings of Steel" achievement, are you allowed to pause the game whilst trying to get this?

Thanks EastX and ATCS , but I found a video guide for the tin cans and I just got the kill streak right before you posted.

Chrinst: Yes. The reason it says in one play through is because if you die or go back to the main menu you have to complete the game again as it does not save your progress. ( If you die you get sent back to the main menu.) This isnt completely confirmed yet, but almost positive as because they added that to the description because if you die you get sent back to the dashboard which is pretty cool and lame at the same time

Chrinst: Yes. The reason it says in one play through is because if you die or go back to the main menu you have to complete the game again as it does not save your progress. ( If you die you get sent back to the main menu.) This isnt completely confirmed yet, but almost positive as because they added that to the description because if you die you get sent back to the dashboard which is pretty cool and lame at the same time
Awesome. Thanks heaps for clearing that up. This is going to be one hard-as achievement!

For the most part this guide is complete, I just need to mop up a few details and fix grammar/spelling issues. Hope this is helpful guys, and happy hunting!

I played the prologue with the Rooster Teeth commentary and did not get Back Seat Commentator.

Edit: But the level after worked fine which makes since since it's the first real "Act" in the game.. Also got credit for Hardcore mode on that where as it didn't count in prologue (but you still get the in game bonus for it).

I'd also like to point out that my brother walked in to watch me play as I was at the very end of the level and he was sitting in the corner barely in view and it added him to the game like 15 seconds before the level ended and I also got With a Little Help from a Friend, which makes that and The Last Undead Boy Scout significantly easier (for me at least since my brother is 25 and getting him to be there for 5 seconds is a lot easier than convincing him to actually play an entire level of a Kinect game sadly).

I'm 32 and I love Gunstringer. Tell your brother I said he's a jerk.

BTW, it turns out I have Awesomeness Detected. Apparently it's for getting a really high kill streak, so that 40-50 kill thing I said was probably when I got it. And there is only one part in the whole game in which you can get it that high. Ba-dum!!! *eerie music*

yes i just got this a few hours ago, play 3 act 4 on the rope you cannnot let one enemy hit you after the first taco. You get 54 kills but you only need 45 exactly.

Hello, i just finished hardcore run with my wife!

I think 9/10 is overkill, i found mega man 10 no damage run a bit harder and it was only rated 6/10.

I would rate this 7/10 only because of one part, the dragon fight in samurai act 3. I would highly suggest that anyone attempting the hardcore achievement to pratice this boss fight before doing so, because there is no way that someone can beat him first try without having any idea of his attacking patern. Also, playing 2players make the hardcore run much easier.

The game is not easy but certainly not worth 9/10, i'm afraid it might keep some people away of this game.

But great guide by the way! I just dont agree with the difficulty score for the 1000 but maybe is just me O.o

I do believe I need to bring it down a bit, but the hardcore run is still challenging.

On another note have you managed gold in all levels yet? Im still working on that before I start hardcore mode.

Yeah, i did gold every act in the game. In my opinion, Perfectionist is harder than strings of steel.

Yeah the hardcore run is a good challenge, what make this game a bit worse is working with the minimal kinect delay ( 0.5 sec approx ) can be annoying when dealing with the traps on hardcore, cause there is definately more traps but only on a few selected acts. Most of the time, the acts are pretty much the same thing except for more monsters/bullets on screen.

It's a good guide. But I disagree that you changed the difficulity down because one guy said he thought it was too high. And that guy has the achievement for finishing megaman 10 without being hit so he must be god or something.

950 is easily a 7, not a 5.

For now we can call it even at 6... and if anyone else has any input please do so. But, this game as with most games the difficulty is going to be based highly upon skill. It is also based on your kinect: if you have 5 feet for play it will be a lot less responsive as 10 or 12 feet.

You know that mega man 10 no hit let you save between stage so that you can retry any stage if you fail without starting from scratch? Also, there is a an easy mode.

I just thought it was really wrong to rate this game a 9 with all the Highly REALLY TOUGH game like Catherine, Ninja Gaiden, Devil May Cry, Lost Planet, Guitar Hero, Trials and the list go on.

Also, i just looked at your achievement for the game, you only finished first play. How can you say that 950 is easily a 7? You just started playing and probably not used to the control YET.

@ Tinyshade; On TA your the only person to 1k this game so far so it must be pretty difficult (well done). How many hours did you put in to get your 1k and how long does the Hardcore run take? I really want to get this game but not if only the most skilled and dedicated players can attain 100%. Also, I dont have a second player to help me, is it still do-able?

It took me 15 hours to 1000k it. I did it alone once, i say that it is about 25% harder. Did you like the control in the demo? Were you able to dodge most traps in th act where you have dodge rocks and vines without too much issues, not first time of course but if you repeat it once or twice? If yes, i say you can finish it.

The more you play the game, the more it become a second nature on where to put your hand for to be at a certain position on screen.

I can't say how skilled or patient you are, so i cant promise you that you will be able to 1k it.

Edit: I just looked at your achievements list and i think that if you are as good with kinect as you are with a controller, you will get it haha

OK I wasn't aware that you could save after every level on megaman; still must be a really hard achievement.

Re: the Gunstringer; I'm on the last play now and I've been back and played multiple acts quite a few times and I am still unable to get gold in ANY of the levels; even the ones I played 10 times over. I just completed the first lvl again (not prologue) and got hit 1 time right at the end. I was certain I had gold with about 35,000 score, but no- silver again. If you can only get gold by not getting hit once then this game is really hard IMO

I can only imagin it's a hell of a lot easier with 2 players or I completely suck lol

Thanks for the reply, I tried the demo this morning then rushed out to buy a copy, its a brilliant game. Im pretty sure I'll need a lot of practice to manage the hardcore run, but with the aid of your vids Im sure it'll be a lot easier for me (and everyone else who uses them).
Its pretty sad to see the lack of interest on this board, and the small number of TA users with it on their list. This is a fairly reliable sign of poor sales. Looks like The Gunstringer will be one of those great games that only a few experience.
