[XBA would like to thank xentaria for this Roadmap]
|Collect 4 different weapon power-ups.|
Easiest achievement in the game. You can get this by playing through the first level and collecting the weapon upgrades hidden in panels or little football shaped things that fly by the screen.
|Score 100,000 points in an Xbox Live Co-op game.||(1)|
Get on live with a buddy (or just jump in any game) and hit 100K in points without losing all your lives. Make sure its not a private match or you will not receive this achievement.
|Get to the first tunnel without losing a life.|
The first tunnel is at the end of the very first level. Once you memorize where evertyhing is, you shouldnt have a problem finishing level 1 without dying. Tip: Its easier to stay on the lower section of the level, just take your time and you'll do alright.
|Tunnel runner 1||10|
|Beat the first timed tunnel with 33 seconds or more left.||(1)|
Once you get to the first tunnel after level 1, you must beat the level before the clock counts down past the 33 second mark to get this achievement. Go right for the detonator button you have to shoot to blow the wall up and you won't have a problem.
|Destroy the alien tower at the end of the water level.|
You will know you are at the water level when you have to ascend up the level via platforms in front of a waterfall. Make it to the top and destroy the alien tower for this achievement.
|Tunnel runner 2||15|
|Beat the second timed tunnel with 55 seconds or more left.||(1)|
Use the same tips as the first tunnel runner, only this tunnel is a little trickier. Avoid getting killed as much as possible and right off the bat start shooting the detonator button.
|Collect 3 different weapons in the second tunnel.|
The 2nd tunnel is right after the waterfall level. To get a different weapon you must stay in a particular room until a yellow guy appears from the side, jumping up and down across the screen. He's not hard to miss visually, but he's difficult to aim at. Shoot him down and collect the weapon upgrade he leaves behind. This guy only appears once per room so make sure you get him when he comes out. Collect 3 upgrades throughout the tunnel for this achievement.
|Get to the second tunnel without obtaining a single weapon upgrade.|
This can get tricky at times because sometimes you accidentally grab weapon upgrades. You must get through levels 1, 2, and 3 without collecting ANY power ups. You can't even get a Base Shield. Don't touch anything and defeat the alien tower at the end of the waterfall level for this achievement.
|Complete the second tunnel with a score of 100,000 or more in Arcade mode.|
Basically, you must start from the beginning, make it to the second tunnel and complete it without continuing (bc your score will reset if you do). You'll easily rack up 100K before the end of the tunnel, and if you make it out alive youll get this achievement.
|Complete the game in Xbox Live Co-op mode.||(12)|
You cannot be in a private match. This can be tough but with a lot of practice and memorization you can get it. If 1 player so happens to make it while the other one got a Game Over earlier, only the person to finish will get the achievement.
|Complete the game in Arcade mode using only 1 credit.||(6)|
Got this my second try only because I've been playing this game for 20 years. I know the levels like the back of my hand, and with practice you will too. Stay alive as much as possible and KILL KILL KILL. You will receive extra lives based on points. Know when to duck, slow down, run, where to shoot, when to shoot... The spread Gun works GREAT during the levels, but the laser will take down a boss before you can blink your eye. Good Luck, its pretty tough for a Contra beginniner. Practice makes (almost) perfect!
|Complete the game in under 12 minutes.|
You have 2 continues to work with here, and if you have a lot of practice, if you memorized the game and can be quick about it, this achievement will come easy. If you're having trouble don't sweat it... Contra is a game thats tough on beginners to the series. You don't get too many lives, but the more you kill the better off you are because you will gain extra lives based on your points.
