Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Achievements
Becoming a Lightning God50
Complete story mode on Revengeance difficulty with all S rankings.

Before starting this, it's best to own and have maxed out these items: Wig A, Wig B, Murasama, Pincer Blades, Sais, and Polearm. If you had happen to get the Fox Blade DLC, then you might want to use that blade instead. If you need BP points for purchases and upgrades, check the "Ich Liebe Kapitalismus!" solution for farming methods. Parrying/blocking is definitely your friend. You ultimately want to get the 'no damage' bonus after each encounter. This bonus is often why you would earn an S rank.

You do not need to worry about dying or restarting as it does not effect rank whatsoever. If you receive a rank any lower than an S, I would probably restart the mission.

If you need a visual guide, Lumen18 has posted a video guide here.

Bloody Hell... I hate ranking achievements. And to add insult to injury, it's a difficulty achievement as well. >.

Going for rank is just never fun. Why platinum? I was so happy you didn't do it for Bayonetta, but now you do it here?

Well I usually never get these types of acchievements, but the one in Azura's Wrath was pretty easy (and fun), so you never know...

This will be hard, but I am sure you will be able to replay missions with all of your upgrades.

just think of this achievement as Peace Walkers S ranks on all levels achievement. it took like forever but i managed. luckly lol. not looking forward to the highest score on VR missions me and MGS2 had issues.

#11 I'm thinking this will be easier then going for all pure platinum medals in Bayonetta. For one you can save your game at every checkpoint without having to restart from the beginning. Two, S ranking is more leanient then going for platinum medals in Bayonetta, no damage isn't so important usually, as long as you can hit the 1k bp time stat and get 1k for every other stat. Still going to be quite a tough one though.

I;m playing this now and I can tell you its bloody hard, harder than getting SSS on DmC so far any way I'm only on the 2-3 mission but yeah its difficuly

Comment #18 by snake2410
Friday, February 15, 2013 @ 02:36:33 AM

#17 Have you unlocked all the weapons and upgrades? And from what I hear (Only played the demo) SSS ranking in DmC wasn't too bad if you were fully upgraded. Think most people rate it a 5/10 for 100% Achievement difficulty from what I've seen. Sounds like this'll be a tough one though.

Comment #19 by snake2410
Friday, February 15, 2013 @ 06:29:06 PM

Special Wigs can be used to get the S ranks for this apparently.

Will have this achievemnent later on today I've had the game since the 14th coz I won a pre order competition to host a metal gear party and the game is easssy to finish and I started revengence difficulty about an hour ago

Comment #21 by Sh1n Kam1KaZe
Sunday, February 17, 2013 @ 09:20:16 AM

#19 the wigs just make the game alittle easier to play there is only 3 of them . 1 gives u inf ammo on sub weapons

2. Gives u inf fuel cells
3. Let's u decapitate any enemy in blade mode without having to parry first bosses don't count

Comment #22 by snake2410
Sunday, February 17, 2013 @ 01:40:19 PM

#21, yes I know that. In the other Metal Gear games special items like the wigs couldn't be used to get the highest ranks though, so I posted that so people know its not the same in this one.

Sunday, February 17, 2013 @ 02:01:57 PM

#22 yeah fair enough ive just done it as proof so yh it works

Comment #24 by snake2410
Sunday, February 17, 2013 @ 03:34:51 PM

No, thats good to know and confirm. I think I posted that first post about it before I knew 100% for sure that it worked and once it was confirmed by you and others I didn't get back here to post it. I also think I misread your post or took it wrong.

Another poster in the forums got the full 1000gs already and rates it at a 7.5/10 for difficulty. I REALLY hope this is true because thats about what I had hoped the difficulty would peak at. It'll make it the second hardest MG game to get 100% on behind MGS2 for me. With MGS4's trophies on PS3 at a 6 - 7/10 for me.

#24 i agree with 7.5 out of 10 for difficulty its alot harder to start of with but once u obtain all the upgrades and get comfortable with the moves and weapons it becomes easier to chain them together and on the harder diffculties u just get remixed enemy waves that are alot less predictable so its good to practice parrying in VR missions etc

#25 Just curious, how would you rate yourself at hack and slash games in general?

Comment #27 by Sh1n Kam1KaZe
Tuesday, February 19, 2013 @ 12:47:21 PM

#26 well considering i managed to finish the game on all difficulties including revengance difficulty with all S ranks id rate my self a solid 9.5/10

I already got the Big Boss achievement on peace walker i don't think i need to be becoming a lighting god to that achievement was hard enough.

Fox blade combined with infinite FC wig makes for a potent combo when going for S ranks on lower difficulties, bet it would work wonders on revengeance too as long as you score the no damage bonus.

If it's standard why the hell is it called big boss.

Is there a way to get the game to keep track of S ranks through revengeance difficulty? I went to chapter select and hit X to see grades, but i only see Easy/Normal/Hard grades :(

You need to beat the game on very hard to unlock revengeance. but if you want here is a cheat to unlock it. at the main screen before pressing start, inter these: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A & start. if you intered it correctly you'll hear Raiden's voice & revengeance difficulty is unlock. i recommende you to beat the game & starts beating revengeance with all S rankings with your save data & all upgraded main weapons specialy Murasama & equip the infinite blade mode wig.

I'm currently fight monsoon. Through his fight I have retried so many times because I can now attempt to kill him without damage. The constant fight with him made me realize how to properly parry multiple attacks from one enemy. Also once I got past the first mission I did a lot better since I could use the BEST WEAPON IN THE GAME EVER.... THE FOX BLADE. HAIL GRAYFOX!

For those going for this, save getting an S rank on mission 7 for last. Otherwise you'll have to redo it.

To think that I've only tried just the first mission at a friends house along with the demo before the release, this game's achievements are going to be a whole new challenge...

Comment #46 by Deviss516

It really isn't that hard if you know how to parry perfectly and the only boss fight I had real problems on is Monsoon.

Just a heads up to the people who are responsible for the guide, this achievement seems to have been renamed Strombringer recently.
