There are 12 achievements with a total of 200 points.
-Estimated achievement difficulty: 8/10
This game uses the right analogue stick for shooting and the left analogue stick for navigation. It takes place entirely on water, and features many perk type upgrades and 3 different ships with different weapons, armor, and speed. It's a very easy game for at least 180 achievement points, but most people won't give the last 20 much more than a few attempts.
Step 1: Campaign
You will gain almost all of your achievements here. Play through the game on the easiest difficulty which will unlock extreme. Now replay any episode without dying while on extreme difficulty. There are a total of 21 collectibles which are golden and are a boat/ship's steering wheel (or helm). They are all very easy to find and you can replay chapters if you missed one, as well as check your progress on what you have per level.
Step 2: Local Multiplayer
Set up a local multiplayer game of Chaser in the main menu. You can play against your 2nd controller and win against it easily for the achievement associated with this mode.
Step 3: Skirmish
You must play Skirmish and have cleared at least wave 25. You can start at wave 19 if you want. Check HERE for a more detailed solution. This is the hardest achievement in the game and is the sole reason the difficulty is so high.
The game's achievements are pretty straight forward and the collectibles aren't hard to find. The problem you will face is the Skirmish mode which will test your patience. The best advice is to be patient and to keep trying. If you manage to complete it, you'll be one of the few with a completion in this game.
|Naval Academy Award||10|
|Finish the Tutorial.|
The tutorial can be overlooked, as it's not the same thing as the prologue. Go to Single Player then down to Tutorial. Complete it for this easy achievement.
|Battle Bravery Badge||10|
|Defeat the Prize Cruiser.|
There are a few Prize Cruisers in the game, but you will destroy one pretty early on in the game. It's a main objective, so you won't miss this while playing the campaign.
|Unlock all player ships in the game.|
This is something you will gain through normal progression of the game. There are 3 total ships.
|Navy Shield of Merit||20|
|Defeat the Biotica Serpenta.||(1)|
This is the boss for Episode 7 and is on Chapter 4. It's a very easy fight, just keep your distance and shoot the 4 arm segements. Once that's done, you'll be able to finish it off by shooting any part of the enemy.
|Emperean Navy Medal of Honor||30|
|Defeat the Biotica Ultima.|
This is the last boss, located on Episode 9 Chapter 3. To defeat it, you must first navigate around it letting the yellow spheres that shoot at you, hit the boss. After that, you can now just shoot it with any weapon you want without having to worry about your bullets being reflected at you.
|Collector of Collectibles||30|
|Collect all Collectibles in the game.|
There are a total of 21 collectibles in this game. They are golden boat/ship steering wheels. Nothing else counts as a collectible towards this achievement. The golden chests are upgrades and the golden coins just increase your score. Press to see how many collectibles are on the level. These are all very easy to find. Below is a video guide in case there are any that you cannot find or don't know how to reach.
|Destroy a Behemoth artillery ship.|
You will encounter this very early on in the game, in the first Episode. Using the shotgun and going around it in circles makes short work of this ship. Destroying it is part of the mission.
|Kill 2500 enemies.|
You will most likely not get this through normal progression of the campaign unless you die frequently. Your kills will also count in Skirmish Mode. You can either replay missions or get the rest of your kills in Skirmish. There is no way to see your statistics so just keep playing until it unlocks.
|Find the hidden upgrade in the Prologue mission.|
The first mission (not the tutorial) is the prologue. From the start of the mission, head North and East until you get to lighthouse with the upgrade in front of it.
|Finish an episode without dying on Extreme.||(2)|
You have to complete an entire episode (all the chapters within) without dying on extreme mode. You only unlock extreme mode after completing the game on any difficulty. The prologue mission counts as an entire episode and only lasts around 8 minutes. Choose the healer units when the option arises. Protect the large ship as it makes it's way to a set location. When you get your special, feel free to use it () when you're low on health or the ship you're protecting seems to be taking a lot of damage. If you die for some reason, you will need to restart the entire mission over.
|Survive 25 waves in Skirmish mode.||(4)|
This achievement is extremely hard and will be what stops most people from completing the game. Skirmish mode is accessed through the main menu. You get only 4 lives. Even starting at wave 19, you will most likely die on wave 23 where there's an unfair amount of overpowered ships. This is not easy, but you can try following the seperate guide I've created HERE for some tips.
|Win 10 Chase mode games.||(1)|
This is a local multiplayer game mode. Go to multiplayer and choose these settings:
Mission Name: Chase Incinerator
Ending Condition: Time
You must have your second controller logged on in order to start the match. You will be able to get this achievement in just over 10 minutes. All you have to do is gain more points than the second account. A tie will not give you a win. Just shoot at least one enemy ship that appears on the map to get more than 0 points.
