From the mind of the brilliant Tim Schafer, comes Brutal Legend, based upon the metal genre of rock itself. At first glance, most would pass it off as a simple action/adventure game, but it's very much a deeper experience than some would think. This is mainly due to the games "Stage Battles," in which the entire game is based upon mainly. Stage battles are large-scale fights in which two opposing factions order their troops around and gather resources to build their army. It has RTS elements to it, but the game is an action game at heart and treating it any other way will result in no short amount of frustration.

A nice amount of the achievements must be gotten through the game's story mode, with several achievements that will be gotten over time. You can knock all of the story mode achievements in one playthrough if you start on the Brutal difficulty, though many have had trouble keeping up with the game. Also, there are quite a few collectibles in the game, but most of them actually help increase your stats, so they are worth grabbing right away.

As said before, many people have had trouble with the game's many stage battles. One of the biggest mistakes people commonly make is treat this game like an RTS, which it isn't. While there are RTS elements to the game's stage battles, it is an action game at heart. It's very important to multi-task and and collect resources, the most important thing is to fight with your troops at all times, constantly harassing the enemy army.

Step #1: First Playthrough
Before you even try to start doing anything, the very first thing you should do is beat the game. If you start on the Brutal difficulty, you can unlock all of the difficulty achievements in the game in one playthrough, as the difficulty achievements stack.

For the most part, the game will be fairly straightforward until your first stage battle. If it's your first time doing them, it will be a lot to take in, as you must constantly be doing something. Between building your army, gathering fans, and fighting the enemy, it will take a bit of time to get used to. Eventually, you will learn the ins and outs of it. It is highly recommended to look for all of the collectibles in the game as you proceed, as a majority of them benefit you in some way. The most important ones to grab are all of the bound serpents, as they increase a stat for every ten you collect, and each solo. It is possible to beat the game without these, but the solos especially, can make it infinitely easier for you to succeed in stage battles.

If you continue to have problems getting far in stage battles, refer to the short guide written by Tim Schafer regarding those struggling. You can find the article HERE.

There has been a glitch that allows you to change difficulty and still get the achievement for beating the game, shown HERE.

Step #2: 100% Completion
Once you finish the game, it'll be down to finishing up everything you haven't gotten around to yet. This includes finishing all of the side-missions, finding all of the collectibles, buying everything from the Motor Forges (including all the paint jobs and Mount Rockmore effigies!), killing every animal, and getting all of the concept art for Ironheade.

The one thing that will trip up most people is unlocking all of the concept art for Ironheade. You can check which ones you have in the extras part of the main menu. You will get some for naturally progressing through the story and a good amount from viewing all of the landmarks. The rest of the concept art is for each individual unit of Ironheade, and you get each unit's respective art for creating a certain amount of them in stage battles.

Step #3: Multiplayer
Once you've finally gotten the hang of the game, it all comes down to the game's multiplayer achievements. Most can be done locally against the bots, with only three of the achievements requiring you to win 50 games in matchmaking. It is possible to boost the game, but the only way to reliably do it is with the DLC map packs.

If you don't boost, it'll all come down to skill. Your more specific strategies will depend on which faction you use, but in the end, it all comes down to multi-tasking. You must learn how to gather fans, build your army, upgrade your stage level, and most importantly, fighting and double-teaming with your units to make the most out of everyone.

Brutal Legend is a game that you'll either like or hate, and no matter what, will take time to fully grasp it's mechanics. Depending on your view of the game's stage battles, it can either be an enjoyable 1k that will come with time, or a very difficult game to finish that will take a lot of time and effort.

DLC: Hammer of Infinite Fate

Welcome to Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC. This DLC adds 4 new maps for Multiplayer as well as some achievements that will require you to go back to the game storyline without adding more missions.

Your biggest friend on this DLC is the Motor Forge. This is were you will equip all the new DLC equipment (the Threads and the Deuce equipment) and blast off. You will have to go to the dressing room a couple of times as several Threads are required, but all in all everything is quite simple.
If you are doing this DLC as you progress on the game, some achievements will only be available when you reach a specific part of the story. The DLC should not be difficult if you've already finished the game and should go in a flash. You will not be able to get Norwegian Sendoff until you've finished the game.

You should try to get a boosting partner for Hammer of Infinite Fate Tourist and Hammer of Fate Champion to reduce the time you will spend on them. Go HERE to find boosting partners. But it is just a matter of playing the new maps and winning on them.

The Hammer of the Infinite Fate DLC is a very quick 90 and with a fairly easy Multiplayer part. All of the 7 campaign achievements shouldn't prove that hard if you've already finished the game and will go by in a flash.

Got a Car and a Date15
Completed "Welcome to the Age of Metal"    (4) 

All of these achievements unlock as you progress through the story and beat each level, so they are not missable.

The very first mission of the game, it serves as a tutorial for the basics of fighting, and driving. Just go through normally, until you get to the "boss". Here, you will learn how to use turbo, and how to use the emergency break. Just wait until Eddies says something about it attacking, and hit the to turbo away from it's attack. Once that's done, hold to use your emergency brake, turn around, and drive through it's tongue. Repeat two more times to finish it off.

From there, after opening the gate, you will have to drive through the collapsing highway. Once you finish the level, the achievement will unlock.

Start a Revolution15
Completed "Exploited in the Bowels of Hell"    

Unlocked during the story and cannot be missed.

Upon starting the achievement, you will gain the Battle Cry solo, which you must use to rally the Headbangers to your side and fight for you. You will also learn how to issue commands to your soldiers.

Eventually, you will come to the boss of this level. If you look above, you will see something moving overhead. Lure the boss under the moving cranes, and stun him with your guitar. Once he's under, use a Power Chord to have the cranes drop what they're moving onto the boss, stunning him. From there, attack him with your axe until he starts moving again, and repeat.

Once you finish him, you will be tasked with protecting the tower, but large amount of Bouncers will come to fight you. Near the fallen headphones, play the Battle Cry solo to finally rally all of the Headbangers to your side, and finish the level.

Thick as a Baby's Arm15
Completed "Lair of the Metal Queen"   

Unlocked during the story and cannot be missed.

For this mission, you must go through the Metal Queen's lair and get some bass strings. Just follow the path, fighting all of the mini spiders along the way. If they start to overwhelm you, use a power chord to push them away, and follow up with your axe.

Eventually you will have to fight the Metal Queen. Fighting her is a matter of patience, as you have to wait for her to expose herself. Eventually, you will see all of her eyes change from blue to red. When they do, electrocute her with your guitar, and she will fall to the ground, where you can pound on her with your axe. Repeat until you finally finish her for good. You will then be given a lenient time limit to get back to the Kill Master, and finish the level.


Hair Remover15
Completed "Battle for Bladehenge"    (1) 

Unlocked during the story and cannot be missed.

Your first actual stage battle, everything you've learned up to this point between giving commands to your troops, double-teaming, and guitar solos will all become immensely useful. Of course, you will probably be confused at first, as the game changes quite a bit. Focus on defending your fan geysers for the most part, and going out to meet the enemy forces when they're safe. It's okay if you die, as during stage battles, your fans will revive you, but your enemy will gain 50 fans for killing you. Eventually, after several waves of enemies are defeated by your army, you will finish the mission.

Also, for the next mission, you MUST get the machine gun upgrade for the Deuce at your local Metal Forge. Completing the next mission will be impossible without it, so get them right away.


French Kiss Instructor15
Completed "Pilgrimage of Screams"    

Unlocked during the story and cannot be missed.

After your second stage battle, you will finally be able to recruit Roadies. However, before you can use them, you must first arm them. Follow the mountainside down the path, and fight the units along the way. You need to make sure the Roadies with you aren't damaged, so send your troops ahead to engage the enemy. Make sure you do not charge the enemy Razor Girls by yourself, as they will tear you apart if you are not careful. Focus on the melee units first, and then the Razor Girls.

Once you get the amps, double-team with one of the roadies, and make sure to keep the seagulls away from them with their amp attack. You can also use this against the enemy troops as you go back up, as they will be knocked down, and at the mercy of your troops.


Chicks n' Booze n' Stuff15
Completed "Sanctuary of Sin"    

Unlocked during the story and cannot be missed.

The final stage battle against Lionwhyte, and the third stage battle. Start off by making a nice mix of Headbangers, Razor Girls, and Thunderhogs to start taking care of the nearby fan leeches. Be careful though, as during this time, some enemy units will come to attack your stage. Leave one unit by your stage to be sure it's safe.

Once you've captured a few fan geysers and make some merch booths, start to focus on building up your army, and upgrading your stage. Just wait it out until you make as many units as you can, upgrading all of your basic units, and defending your merch booths. Once you're ready, advance your army near the final set of stairs, and send every Roadie you have to the guard towers. Any unit aside from a Roadie will be torn apart by the towers, so send only them in to destroy both towers. Once they're destroyed, send your entire army in to destroy the gate the towers were guarding to end the mission.

Also, if you have not grabbed it, make sure you have the Facemelter solo, as it will usually kill all nearby enemy units outright. Using this solo can really change the tide of a fight in your favor.


Ran to the Hills15
Completed "It's Raining Death"    

Unlocked during the story and cannot be missed.

For this mission, you must escape the tower as it crumbles in you're deuce. The debris will always fall the same way, so if you're having trouble navigating the course, just try again. Once you escape the destruction, the achievement will unlock.


Fistfull of Fog15
Completed "Dry Ice, Wet Graves"    (2) 

Unlocked during the story and cannot be missed.

Your second battle against the Drowning Doom, it is a normal stage battle. There is a giant mountain-size rock right in the middle of the map, forking the road to the left and right. Build some troops, and send them all to the right, as you will never be attacked from the left path. There will be quite a few units coming for this fan geyser, so use your solos, double team, and whatever you have to do to keep them away. The most important part of this battle is to get this geyser, so do not hesitate to do whatever it takes to get it.

Once you grab it, upgrade your stage, build the usual mix of units. Send a load or two down the left path, as it will very rarely be guarded. You will have to watch for the enemy avatar, so be sure to watch for them. Once you've done the strategy of building as many units as you can and fully upgrading your stage, send your entire army to the enemy stage.

Before you even do this stage battle, it is highly recommended to grab three solos. They are Rock Block, Light of Dawn, and Bring it on Home. Rock Block stops enemy stage production for a short period of time, barring the opponent from being able to upgrade their stage and build units. Light of Dawn cancels out all enemy buffs and debuffs, which is absolutely terrible for the Drowning Doom. The Drowning Doom's main strength is the ability to weaken their foes to a point where their most basic forces can take care of an enemy, and this solo takes away that strength from them.

Bring it on Home summons a blimp to your location, heavily damaging all enemies and nearby buildings. This solo itself can nearly take out an entire army if used correctly, so it makes fighting much easier.


No More Tears15
Completed "Sea of Black Tears"    (2) 

Unlocked during the story and cannot be missed.

The final fight against the Drowning Doom, and it is somewhat annoying. Start off with the usual strategy of grabbing all the nearby fan geysers, and building merch booths on them. For the most part you won't be attacked by the Drowning Doom, so take the time to build up your army and upgrade your stage. Once you've done as much as you can, advance your army to the bridge, and slowly take care of the forces as you go. At the end of the bridge are two electric towers, guarding the enemy stage. In order to destroy these towers, you must double-team with the Rock Crusher, the most powerful unit you can build.

Be very careful though, as the moment you destroy the second tower, the entire enemy army will rush you. If you do not stop them, they will advance to your stage, and beat you. So right away, play Bring it on Home to weaken the army, followed by Light of Dawn so that you are immune to the debuffs. Double-team right away with your Rock Crusher, and use it to destroy the biggest units you see. Keep making units to replace the ones you will lose, and once you've taken out a majority of the enemy forces, play Rock Block so they cannot rebuild. From there, it's just a matter of destroying the stage and any units the other army manages to build.

Completed Campaign mode on Brutal     (12) 

For the record, all of the difficulty achievements stack, so beating the game on Brutal will unlock the other two achievements.

You will get this achievement for beating the final mission in the game, which can be a pain. There are two parts to this mission. The first part contains a unique stage battle, with the second part being a duel against the Emperor.

For the stage battle, you will fight against the Tainted Coil. Throughout the fight, you will notice some unique syringes raining upon the ground, deploying units when they explode. You must be attentive, as they can drop at any moment, and will often attack any nearby units or merch booths. The usual strategy of building some units, grabbing all of the fan geysers, and building merch booths will come into play here. You will be harassed constantly, but the units sent at you are fairly weak, so you won't have trouble taking care of them. As this part is slow, focus on building up your army, upgrading your stage as much as you can, as you won't have a chance to when the stage battle picks up.

The main objective of the stage battle is to damage the two "towers" until they fall down, stunned. As for all structures, roadies are the best units to take care of them. Once the towers are down, go towards your stage, and you will notice two hallway-like paths, one on each side. You must summon your Deuce, drive up the pathway, and jump into the tower to destroy it. You will have to do this for both towers.

Once you destroy one tower, the battle will start to pick up. The enemy will start bringing in stronger units, at a very fast rate. You can either send any Roadies you have to take out the tower and have your army defend your stage, or send your entire army to the second tower and ensure it's destroyed. The latter strategy is very risky in the case that you fail, as you will not have enough time to make another army before your stage is destroyed. After deciding on which strategy to use and disabling the second tower, drive into it with the deuce to end the battle. After the cut scenes, drive the deuce up the stairs on the opposite side of your stage, and you will begin the final battle.

For this boss fight, you go up against the Emperor. The fight will start normal enough, so start pounding him with whatever attacks you have. After he's taken enough damage, he will go into the background, and attach himself to six chains. During this time, he will begin to summon minions to take you on. Defeat all of them, and the emperor will be open. Start attacking him with your guitar, and you will notice the chains he's attached to will fall. He will keep summoning minions for you to deal with, so keep fighting. Once you kill everyone, again keep attacking him until all the chains fall. After they fall, he will come back down like the beginning of the fight, so start wailing on him with your axe. At this point the fight will repeat itself, so do everything again, and the fight will end.

Once the credits finish rolling, you will unlock this achievement.

Completed all hunting secondary missions   (3) 
The Hunter can be found at two locations. First, you find him Here, surrounded by rocks and sitting near a campfire.

Then, after completing four of his missions, he moves over Here. He hangs out up a ramp, and to the right, again, sitting next to a campfire.

Most his missions are pretty straightforward. A couple of them are rather annoying if you don't where to look. So, here's where to look (For the troubling missions)

Reaper Steeds can be found around Here.
Guillotars can be found around Here.

After killing the four Hextadons, head back to the first place you found the hunter, and speak with him.
Squeal Like a Chicken20
Completed all racing secondary missions   
Tackle these missions once The Druid Plow (AKA The Deuce) is fully upgraded.

Tip: Do not touch Fletus' car! Do not! If you do, you'll more than likely get spun around and slammed off course into a tree. Give him a wide berth, and don't try to pass him in enclosed spaces. That's the best advice I can give . . . Good luck!
Completed 20 ambush, outpost defense, or mortar secondary missions   (1) 
You only need to complete 20 missions TOTAL. You can complete any combination of the above secondary missions to get this.

The only ones I had trouble with were the Ambush missions, and didn't have trouble often. The best thing to do is drive the healer vehicle thing directly into the ranged enemies, stun 'em, hop off and start killing.
Metal God50
Achieved 100% completion on the stats screen    (17) 

For a map of all collectibles, click here! 
All credit for that phenomenal map goes to Rooster Teeth/Achievement Hunter.

In order to get 100%, you need to find all the collectibles listed in the map above. In addition to getting all the collectibles, you'll need to do the following things:

  • Collect all Ironheade Concept art. There is one for every Ironheade unit, each of which is obtained by double teaming with that unit. There is one for each main character, which you will unlock during the story. Finally, there is one for the stage, which is obtained by double teaming with a max level stage mic for 5 minutes. This can all be done in a custom match with no opponents.
  • Complete all secondary missions. These are all marked on your map, so it shouldn’t be a problem to track them down.
  • Buy all Motor Forge upgrades. 

Once you have everything required for 100%, load up your game, and go to the, "Stats" screen. The achievement will pop shortly after.

Now go forth, and get covered in metal god love!

Practice Bloody Practice10
Won an AI Stage Battle - any difficulty   

Play on Gentle and you can basically do nothing and win.

Iron Fist20
Won an AI Stage Battle - Brutal difficulty    (2) 
When I got this, I was playing as Ironheade, against The Drowning Doom, on the map, "Feeding Area." Here's how:

I first created two Razor Girl squads, and one Headbanger squad. I took them to capture the Geyser on the right side of the map. Once I had the Geyser, I created one Thunderhog, then I defended the geyser until I could afford to upgrade to stage level two. At this point, I created another Razor Girls squad, as well as a Fire Baron squad. I double teamed with a Fire Baron, and went to capture the two Geysers on the left side of the map.

At this point, it was rather easy. I defended that area as I built up my army, and then steamrolled the enemy.
Won a ranked multiplayer match   (3) 

Refer to "Conqueror"

Won 10 ranked multiplayer matches   (4) 

Refer to "Conqueror"

Won 50 ranked multiplayer matches   (104) 
Here is a strategy, courtesy of Dahaka:

Start with the Ironheade faction. Key things to note: Disrupting the enemy is, at least right now, often the key to victory. Being able to multitask and efficiently command your army while you are messing with the opponent's hero/units/etc is absolutely necessary to consistently win. Damaging enemy units with lightning or powerslides, even if you don't kill them, goes a long long way.

My strategy basically involved capping one resource point really fast, usually one midfield if there were multiple options, building only a headbanger group, a ranged group, and a healer, while disrupting the enemy. Upgrade to tech level 2 ASAP, build vehicles, and then attack the base. Speed is success here, but this strategy will win you games. Things that make victory sure is getting hero kills (50 extra fans goes a long way toward tech research).
Master of the Flame20
Double Teamed with every Ironheade unit    (1) 

This can be done in story mode or in a multiplayer/custom match.

To Double Team, move over to a friendly unit and press . You'll know you're in range, because in the bottom left side of the screen, you'll see an animation of what your Double Team attack will look like. 

Master of the Tear20
Double Teamed with every Drowning Doom unit   

Refer to Master of the Blood

Master of the Blood20
Double Teamed with every Tainted Coil unit   

These two can't be done in story mode, they must be done in a multiplayer or custom match. It is easiest to do a custom match with no opponents. Pick the level Feeding Area so you can send units to the middle to die when you are done with them.

Armchair General20
Won a Stage Battle by yourself against the AI without attacking   (1) 

Your units can attack, but your hero cannot. Causing any form of damage with your hero will void the achievement.

You can, however, still make use of some of your solos. The following solos do not void the achievement: 

  • Battle Cry
  • Rally Army
  • Summon Flag
  • Fan Tribute
Acquired 3,000 Fire Tributes   (1) 
This is cumulative. Feel free to spend them as you see fit and it won't stop you from getting the achievement.

If you find an Ironheade patrol, you can help them kill various groups of enemies and get rewarded in the form of 15 Fire Tributes. Honestly, though, it's easier just to hunt for collectibles. If you spot a patrol fighting, might as well help them.
Spent 250,000 fans - any mode   (15) 

This is cumulative and does not reset if you start a new story mode playthrough.

Fans are Brutal Legend's token building resource. Every unit costs fans. Fans are generated by building Merch Booths over Geysers. To build a Merch Booth over a Geyser, destroy the Fan Leech attached to said Geyser, hold  to bring up the solo menu, and select Fan Tribute. The Geyser must be under your control (Glowing green) in order build a Merch Booth. If it's red, that means it's under enemy control. Kill the enemies around the Geyser until it turns green.

The most efficient way to grind this is to make a custom match with no opponents on the map Feeding Area. Play as Tainted Coil. When the map starts, take all the geysers with whatever units you like then send them to die in the middle. Play the Summon Flag solo in the middle near the giant worm. From here you’ll want to wait a little while to generate a few thousand fans then spend all 40 population points on Battle Nuns. At 1 population point costing 75 fans, all 40 spots will cost 3000 fans.

It is easy to fill up the build queue to 40 then go do something else for 10 minutes and keep checking back to refill it.

Some Demon Flesh on your Bumper20
Slayed 150 enemies with the Deuce - any mode    (3) 

Pretty simple. Hop in The Deuce (AKA Druid Plow), and run your enemies over, shoot them, blow them up, do whatever it is your Druid Plow does.

It is worth noting that animals do not count as enemies for this achievement. It must be units belonging to either Lionwhyte, the Drowning Doom or Tainted Coil. This can be completed both in story and multiplayer mode. 

I've never touched an axe before30
Personally smote 300 enemies - any mode    (2) 
Kill your enemies with your Guitar.

If you want to, you can get this in the very beginning of the game, with all respawning enemies. It would be a major waste of time because you'll inevitably get it anyway, but you can do it if you want to.
Silence, groundwalker!10
Gained 5 or more seconds of hang time in a single jump - any mode    (2) 

This video can explain it quite a bit better than I can. All credit goes to Geoff & Jack of Rooster Teeth/Achievement Hunter.

Six Degrees of Schafer15
Played with or against another player who has this Achievement    (39) 
This is a viral achievement. You have to play with or against someone who already has it. If you want to try and get this quickly, check the achievement trading thread HERE.
Trapped 15 enemies in one ring of fire with the Fire Baron's Double Team    (2) 
This is best done when playing against the Tainted Coil, as they have more units per squad.

I did this in the Feeding Area map. From where you start, to the left is a small bit of land with two Fan Geysers on it. Capture both of them. Your goal is to draw the Tainted Coil units onto the long narrow stretch of land that leads to the two Geysers. When they're close, start driving up one side of the land, circle around and drive down the other side. This way, they'll have nowhere to run except back or forward, and since they're slower than your cycle, you should complete the ring of fire before they can escape.
Killed 25 enemies with the grinder of one Rock Crusher    (1) 
To get this achievement, you have to run enemies over with the Rock Crusher. This is best done against the Drowning Doom. I'd recommend playing on the map, "Feeding Area."

First, create two Razor girl squads and one Thunderhog, then go take the geyser on the right. Make sure that the enemy can't upgrade by killing their hero. Defend that area until you've got your Rock Crusher, then head into the enemy's base and start running everything over. The enemy hero can be a problem, but if you try to run them over, they'll keep getting pushed back by the blades, and eventually they'll die. During this time, they can't do anything do anything to you, and most of the other units don't pose much threat.

You'll have to run over each unit two or three times to fully kill them.

Note: The type of units the AI creates are based on what units you have. So if they're not creating melee infantry, then you should create a bunch of ranged infantry, and get rid of vehicles and such.
Hit 6 enemies with the explosion from a Brood's Double Team    (1) 
The Brood is the little baby carriage/hot rod unit of the Drowning Doom. Play against the Tainted Coil or Drowning Doom. I recommend playing on the map, "Feeding Area," as it small, and thus, it is less likely that the enemy will scatter their forces.

Best thing to do is get to stage level three as quickly as possible. Capture the Geyser on the right first, then move on to the two on the left. Until you hit stage level three, only buy units when you absolutely have to. Once you hit stage level three, it should be pretty easy.

The reason you should rush to level three is because generally, as the AI gets more fans, and stage upgrades, they focus less on the powerful-in-large-groups types of enemies, and more on the vehicles. Needless to say, it's hard to hit 6 vehicles with one explosion from a baby carriage.
Hit 15 enemies with one Agony Ball using the Pain Lifter's Double Team    (1) 
The Pain Lifter is a Tainted Coil unit. It's basically an ultra-metalized catapult. It fires a - wait for it! - blood-puking eyeball covered in demon skin. After launching it, it basically turns into a game of Katamari. You move the eyeball around with the , and after twelve or so seconds, it explodes. To get the achievement you have to make the ball explode(), and the resulting explosion has to hit 15 enemies. Thanks, Dahaka!

Dahaka said to play against Ironheade for this one, as you should.

Now, onto getting the achievement. Create a Pain Lifter (Preferably Superior) and park it outside the enemy's base. Fly in and make sure there are at least 15 enemies. If so, drive the Pain Lifter right into the middle of them, and launch an Agony Ball right at your feet. They should be surrounding you, so as soon as the ball hits the ground, press to make it explode.
Death From Above15
Killed 20 enemies with one Bleeding Death    (1) 
The Bleeding Death is the Tainted Coil's token, "Ultimate" unit. You purchase it for 450 fans, then you play a solo to summon it at your current location. It has it's own freewill, and it despawns after roughly a minute.

Dahaka had a great strat for this. It's as follows: Play against Ironheade, let them take all fan geysers and mass units. Focus on upgrading, and creating a small defensive force. When they have a lot of units, run in & summon it. Thanks, Dahaka!

Now, there are a few things I'd like to add to this strategy: Instead of letting them take ALL the fan geysers, grab the one on the right until you're at stage level three, then abandon it and let the enemy take it. This will ensure you're not defenseless when, and if they do attack. It'll also speed up the process a bit.

When you're ready to attack (They have at least 17 or so units) create a Skull Raker (Preferably superior), double team with it, run into the enemy's base and destroy their Merch Booth. This is important because if you don't, there's a good chance that the Bleeding Death will spend a good chunk of it's time alive trying to destroy the Booth. You don't want this. Just make sure that after the booth is destroyed (And the Bleeding Death is summoned) you get your Skull Raker the hell out of there, or else he'll end up taking the Bleeding Death's kills.
Coolest Thing Ever15
Jumped over a Hextadon in the Deuce   (5) 

I'll leave this to Jack & Geoff of Achievement Hunter. All credit goes to them for the video.

If that doesn't work for you (The Hextadon isn't always there) I found another place in which to get this achievement. It's right in This area.

Same method applies as in the Achievement Hunter video. Lure it towards the side of the mountain, then floor it.

Rode every animal in the world    (2) 
To ride an animal, stun it by targeting it and pressing . Some animals have to have to shocked more than once to become stunned. You have to zap the animal quickly to stun it. In other words, you can't zap them twice, wait three seconds, then zap them three more times and expect it to stun them.

If you find that the animals are dying before they get stunned, switch to a weaker guitar, such as Original Strings.

The animals you need to ride(And where to find them), In order of appearance:
Boar Bather50
Rode a Razorfire Boar into the Sea of Black Tears and live to tell the tale.   (4) 

As far as I know, you have to have beaten the campaign to be able to get this. Anyway, here's how:

Go here.

Target a boar, press to stun it, then hop on.

Ride it to here(And into the hole at the bottom of the long, long ramp).

Once you're inside, head straight. You'll see a ramp, ride the boar to the edge of the ramp, and just before it goes off, press to hop off the boar. The boar will go sailing into the Sea of Black Tears - Hopefully. The boar doesnt go as far as you might think when you dismount. May take multiple tries - and you'll get the achievement.

If you'd prefer a video walkthrough:
