[x360a would like to thank Tyger7 and for this Roadmap]
|Shoot a total of 10,000 light gun bullets.|
Light Guns shoot bullets. They shoot very fast and this will be one of the first achievements you get in the game. As you upgrade them, they will fire even more. You will get this in a game or two most likely
|Shoot a total of 3,000 heavy gun shots.|
As you progress through arcade, you'll soon start seeing these Heavy Guns. They shoot what appears to be plasma shots. This will take a little bit longer, as you must get farther to earn them. You may also get them in Survival mode quickly. When you start this mode, you already have the weapons.
|Shoot a total of 1,000 laser bolts.|
The Laser Towers will start appearing last. They shoot very slow unless upgraded to max. You should get this as you play through the later levels in arcade. You can also get these in Architect mode. You may also get them in Survival mode quickly. When you start this mode, you already have the weapons.
|Block over 1,500 enemies with shields.|
Shields form around the bases. After upgrading them and playing for the other achievements, you should start getting this a little bit faster as the alien ships crash into them. This will take multiple plays to accomplish. Each shield (when maxed) should be able to block up to 10 enemies.
|Stick It To 'Em||5|
|Use a single finger to reach Wave 10 in Arcade mode.|
You might not have even known you could use two fingers to shoot in at two target points. Just keep keep one finger going until Wave 10. The achievement will unlock after you are die, not at the wave. You can continue or die on purpose.
|Get to Wave 3 in Arcade mode with an accuracy above 25%.|
There is no way to actually tell what percentage your accuracy is at. You must beat the first 2 waves in arcade with higher than 25%. You can use a modification called "Battle Cry" after you buy it to help with this achievement. It slows everything down 50%. The trick is to let things hit your base and possibly even destroy one of your light guns in the first round. Try to only shoot when there are a lot of things on the screen at once. Once Wave 3 starts, don't shoot at all and let yourself die.
|Get to Wave 5 in Arcade mode with an accuracy about 40%.|
This is like the Sharpshooter achievement except you'll need a higher percent and get to wave 5. You can stack this with Special Forces, which is the other accuracy achievement. I suggest going for Special Forces and you should be able to pick this up along the way. You will want to use the Battle Cry modification to slow everything down. This can be done with max upgrades. Just be selective on how you shoot. You will have the chance to shoot a box that moves slowly on the screen. The more you shoot it, the more your percentage will go up. You can also do this with a boss. Make sure you focus all guns on them. If they move, make sure to move with them so you don't start missing.
|Get to Wave 8 in Arcade mode with an accuracy above 50%.||(3)|
This will be a tough achievement for some people. Like the other accuracy achievements, you must maintain it until the specified wave. In this case, it's Wave 8. Shoot only when needed or when you have a easy shot. Make sure when a bonus box is floating above, to put all fire onto it when you can. The boss also helps on wave 5. Once you reach Wave 8, die. If you didn't get any achievements, you will have to try again. Use the Battle Cry modification to make things easier.
|Don't Cross the Streams||25|
|Build 4 lasers in Architect mode and fire them all at once.||(2)|
You must build your own base and progress through various waves. You can build/upgrade what you want, but nothing respawns if you lose them. Building more Cities gives you a faster cash flow, but then you have less defenses. The only way to be successful is to have a good amount of bases and upgraded Light Guns. Keep everything close together to be shielded. This will take many successful wave defenses to gain enough "extra money" to get the lasers. You must build 4 Laser Towers which costs a total of 1200. After building them you just have to fire on the screen so that they all shoot at once. Below is the suggested method to gain the achievement easily.
|Welcome to the Club||15|
|Played 10 Arcade games.||(1)|
As the achievement states, except it also counts the other modes as well. You will get this along the way attempting the rest of the achievements. It's okay if you die. Some people have been reporting to play more than 10, yet still not get the achievement. Try to exit the game after every play and continue to get all other achievements. If this is your last achievement, uninstall and reinstall the game and try again.
|Fully upgrade everything.||(1)|
This achievement is not unlocking for some players. The fix seems to be to uninstall the game, and start over from scratch again.
|Destroy 50 enemies at once with a single Overdrive blast.|
An Overdrive Blast is the super weapon you can use after scoring multiple kills. It goes down if you aren't shooting anything. Once it hits 100%, you just tap the bar on the top of the screen. Alternatively you can swipe 3 fingers upwards to activate it. A blast goes from bottom to top killing everything in it's way (except bosses). You will likely just get this playing along. The farther you get in waves, the higher chance you will get to killing 50 in a single shot. The achievement unlocks after the game ends.
|Point out your heroes!||(4)|
