Not Afraid of Heights

All right, I know everyone is going to say that everything is random, and believe me, it is. I've been trying to get this achievement for three days now, and I've never even gotten CLOSE to finishing the stupid video game. Does anyone have any clue on how to outsmart this freaking game? I mean, the guys throwing trees from the windows will do them in random order until I move out, and then suddenly they ALL throw at the same time. How can I avoid that? I seriously wish I could get help getting this achievement, because it's getting to the point of annoyance (like "If They Came To Hear Me Beg" from Halo: Reach annoyance). Even just some encouraging words, like I have a glitched game and that's why this achievement seems harder for me than anyone else. Something to make me feel better. I've lost like 300 times. I've literally played nothing but this part of the game for 3 days straight without a single chance at winning. Encouraging words might help. Thanks for letting me rant.

Thank you! I think it is the stupidest achievement! But I'm not going to let this keep me from Platinuming this game! Force Unleashed II is still sticking in my craw because I have one freaking achievement in it, and I can't get it to save my life!

I think I completed it after around 80+ attempts. Cost me a controller and an hour of time, lol. I have heard that people completed it with only a few tries, and they are just lucky bastards because this game is all luck. All I can really say is to study a YouTube video guide and prepare yourself for more frustration. My video is in the achievement guide that's stickied up top.

I got the achievement when i stopped caring if anything would hit me or not so i did a speed run up that damn building. after 53 fails, i got it on my 54th try. that achievement can go blow something. i figured if i took risks it wouldn't matter if i failed 1 more time....

just do it your own way but use some achievement videos at the crucial moments that keep killing you, i died 21 times before i got this the main bit i was stuck on was the very first bit with two of the tree throwers i watched a video and figured out how, but there is a little glitch where you will move out of the way and it will still drag you down. good luck and hope you get it soon.

Use the age old technique that for me at least, never fails. Have a good few attemps till you start wanting to plant your controller in the wall then shut off the system and leave it. Return following day and get achievement on third attempt. It really does help to come back fresh if it's just not happening for you at the time.

^This. This really is the best way to do it. Amazingly its not in trying so hard.

I think I was ready to throw my controller at the screen at about the 40th attempt and then I thought screw this I'll just shoot stuff... then worked my way up not shooting stuff and got it LOL.

What really upset me is when I got right to the top and got dropped by those stupid opening windows because I was in such a state of amazement that I'd almost reached the top. But I tried a few more times and finally got it.

Take your time, you will get it.

This achievement is fairly easy aside from the part after the first UFO with the 3 douches spamming stuff side by side on the far right, and the last climb where you have to be extremely careful while manuevering the three lanes.

Day 4

Well, still trying. I have managed to more quickly get past the guy throwing cars, but the very top of the building is what's giving me the most trouble. I sat for an hour today just watching the guys throw stuff down the three lanes, and there was no way I would have been able to move an inch without being hit. I finally just had to shut it off. That achievement is probably going to be the one I won't get in this game at this rate. I wish I could get together with my two friends and just all of us take a turn trying it and see which one of us gets it--maybe have prize or something. LOL.

this is where i died most, once i got past it i only died twice, i did it finally after 18 attempts, it's just a case of patience and learn when to wait and when to go for the opening to move on.


it is a stupid achievement though, glad i have done it.

Wow feel lucky that it only took me around 12 or so goes now.

Honestly the sad matter of the fact is that this achievement is about 10% skill and 90% luck. As you said it is entirely possible for all the people to throw items at once and there to be no where to go. I don't think I ever died to anything but the guys throwing things.

So just keep trying until you catch a break. The nice thing is that really the rest of it is very easy so you should always be able to reach that last straight and then you just have to hope they throw them in a doable order.

I still hate Medal Racer more. If you fail here, it starts here. Failing that stupid last section of Medal Racer means doing the whole fight again. No Fear you die from stupidity, but stupidity that you can see coming. Medal Racer is just poorly coded BS.

Have you even been reading the thread? I'd say it's the other way around, if you fail Medal racer, you did something wrong.

I meant stupidity on the game's part. Not the player's part.

Ah, I see what you mean now. But I don't get what's bad about Medal Racer, coz I didn't really have any trouble with it, other than it not unlocking the first time I tried for some reason. But I'm assuming I just missed a medal or two somewhere, or that the medals in the bus at the start of the level counts.

I think the big problem is that you have to be dashing while picking them up or it won't unlock. There are a few places where you basically have to stop so you can get all the medals. It's very easy to accidentally overrun and one of the medals to be collected as you stop

First time I tried it I just walked to pick a load of them up. Often backtracking over to check I had them. Had every single coin and it didn't unlock. Next time tried making sure I was dashing through all of them and got it.

I didn't dash while I collected one of the coins when I got it. But backtracking and looking probably messes up the achi.

Lost count

People with less than 50 tries I'm envious of. I've lost count, but I think I'm somewhere around 200 tries for this achievement and still haven't gotten it. Without shooting something, I don't think I'll be able to get it. There's just too many windows. *sigh*

Thanks the encouragement, guys. I think my best bet is my plan for friends and a prize. LOL.

If you've failed that many times, maybe it's time to use another strategy?

It's not so much the retro gameplay element that makes it difficult, but it's the fact that everything is random. A huge part of what makes this achievement obtainable is luck. Luck and patience are vital if you intend to unlock this.

I woke up and got this trophy this morning (PS3). After that first "tricky" part I just took my time and stopped to observe the patterns of enemy drops and finally made it after about 10 attempts. Just take your time and dont do it after playing for hours.

It's funny seeing people mention platinums. Whenever I see that it always makes me wonder why for multiplatform games that have identical lists the forums aren't simply merged. I mean there are two separate guides for lollipop chainsaw on the 360 and Ps3 forum. But the achievement/trophy requirements are the same lol.

I think it's best to have both sites separate. if it wasn't, i think the fangirls would clash everyday. plus i like this community better then the sister sites which has slightly more of them. i used to think it was strange seeing PS3 players post here. but i post over there from time to time so i don't think its strange anymore.

10+ attempts until I got frustrated. Shot my way up to take note of where the windows with goons are, retried this morning and got it first time after a good night's sleep.

It's luck, really. Towards the last section, they somehow stopped throwing stuff for a while, and I took the opportunity to scale my way up asap.
