Resident Evil 6 Achievements

Mad Skillz

Max out all the skills that allow you to level up.  

The skills menu can be brought up by selecting Play Game -> Campaign -> Skill Settings from the main menu. You’ll also automatically be taken to the Skill Settings menu between chapters. 

Purchasing skills requires skill points. Skill points can be earned by killing enemies in Campaign and Mercenaries mode. Larger sums of skill points can be picked up in suitcases/chests throughout campaign. A useful skill to pick up early on is “Item Drop Increase.” Along with more ammo and healing items, slain enemies will also drop skill points more often.

For this achievement, you’re required to max out all the skills that can be leveled up. Any skill that has Lv. next to it is required. It will cost a total of 954,000 skill points to purchase all the skills required.

These are the skills required with their cost per level:

  • Firearm Lv. 3 | 12,000 | 29,000 | 75,000
  • Melee Lv. 3 | 10,000 | 25,000 | 75,000
  • Defense Lv. 3 | 3,200 | 28,000 | 80,000
  • Lock-On Lv. 2 | 2,800 | 31,000
  • Rock Steady Lv. 2 | 3,500 | 33,000
  • Critical Hit Lv. 3 | 3,500 | 13,000 | 32,000
  • Piercing Lv. 3 | 12,000 | 28,000 | 55,000
  • J’avo Killer Lv. 2 | 3,000 | 25,000
  • Zombie Hunter Lv. 2 | 3,000 | 25,000
  • Combat Gauge Boost Lv. 2 | 70,000 | 90,000
  • Recovery Lv. 2 | 10,000 | 70,000
  • Field Medic Lv. 2 | 12,000 | 95,000

There are several ways you can farm skill points.

Chris Chapter 5 - A popular farming method is to load Chapter 5 in Chris' campaign and play until you reach the circular room where a timer will start. It takes 3-4 minutes to reach the room, and another 3-4 minutes for the timer to run out. 

You'll notice that when each lever in this room are pulled, two cocoons will come out on conveyer belts. You can wait for the J'avo to pull these levers, or pull the levers yourself when they're lit bright green. Up to ten B.O.W.s will spawn from the cocoons, consisting of Napads and Gnezdos. Each one you kill will drop a 1,500 or 2,500 point skill piece. Once you've killed them all and picked up all your skill points, proceed to the next area. Skip the cutscene and wait for the Saving... icon to appear before quitting. Go to Chapter Select and repeat. 

Each run earns you around 18,000 skill points. It will take around 6 hours to farm the 954,000 skill points you need using this method. Difficulty doesn't affect the amount of skill points dropped, so set it to amateur to make it easier. Firearm Lv. 3 paired with infinite ammo will also speed up the process.

Mercenaries - If you plan on playing alot of Mercenaries and getting good at it, this is an excellent way to earn skill points. It's a good way to take a break from the monotony of farming campaign. You can find a guide with alot of info in the X360A forums HERE.

Cases/Chests in Campaign - These are scattered throughout the campaign and have large sums of skill points inside them. Keep an eye out for these as you play through, and if you'd like, X360A user Plasma SKX has a video guide for every skill point location that you can follow HERE.

I think the description is a bit wrong. It's probably max out all skills that CAN be leveled up. Such as Melee Lv.1 (Lvl 3 max).

#7 - you are correct!

I was just about to ask the same question...because I've been playing on professional for a while now and I don't notice a difference in the skill point amounts that are dropped from enemies...

If someone who has got this achievement can have a quick look at their stats and see how many skill points they needed to pass to get this achievement I would be most grateful. Would be good to know what we're aiming for!

The achievement is written funky, basically what you need to do is upgrade all the skills that have a level number next to them (example Firearm lvl. 2), there are 12 total and take about 955,000 total points.

If you're going for this achievement you are probably going for all of them, so do this one last. After my 2 runs through the campaign (normal then professional), I had 750k points, 89k I had spent on my infinite shotgun. So that left only 294k, which didn't take long using the farming system people have been mentioning in chapter 5 of Chris's mission.

With chapter 5 for Chris, you are guaranteed 18k from just the B.O.W.'s, plus anything else that the other enemies drop, and it only takes about 10 minutes to run through.

I got Zombie Genocide in DR2 foronly 35G. This doesn't seem too bad.

As for my plan, I played through the campaigns with the four major characters and leveled Melee, Defense, and Fire Arm. I played through with the minor character, now I'm playing through with everyone on Easy to get a ton of herbs and ammo to play through on Veteran next. After that, I'll buy a couple infinate ammo upgrades and play through on Professional. Is it the most efficent? No. But I'm going to enjoy my game.

You need somewhat 900k+ points for this achievement but what made me realize is I still need to buy all infinte ammo for weapons which means you need way over 1 million points to get every skill. Lucky the achievement is only Lv. skills or else this would be one of the last achievemnts I get.

With the newly added Stage Selection feature just load up Leon or Chris' campaigns and select the "Medical Facility" it'll start you off right when you have to race to the elevator. Just win the race in that corridor and the race in the security room and bam! You just made an easy 18K in skills points in less than 5 minutes. Make sure to continue onward until you hit a checkpoint that saves. Quit out and then repeat as necessary. Hope this helps, friends.

Quite a grind, but here's the easiest way I found to do it:
1. Purchase unlimited ammo for the grenade launcher.
2. Load up the City Hall (Level 2-4) on Chris' campaign.
3. Play as Chris, kill all Napads and Strelats until the end of the level. There are 10 Napads (at 1.5k each) and 6 Strelats (at 1k each). Takes approx. 9 minutes and you should walk away with 21k skill points each time.

Zero Stress Farming Method

1. Load Jake's Campaign 4-3 with No Hope difficulty
2. Right after the 2nd obstacle, pick up 2000pt from the chest on your left
3. There's another chest with 5000pt right next to the last garbage dump on the right of the alleyway before the next truck.
4. Run to the end and load the next map.
5. After it finished saving, quit

With double points bonus from No Hope, you will get 14K in less than 3 mins including selecting the stage, loading and saving time and going back to the menu

1. No enemies, don't need Infinite Ammo
2. Theoretically you can get 280K in an hour
3. If you need an extra kick, pick up the points from the crates as well.

1. It gets bored very quickly

So do it together with Leon's and Chris' method, throw in s

The best way to do this is keep playing mercenaries. You can get a lot of points from there and level up those skills.

Didn't check the videos but Ada's 2-3 Lab chapter is what I use. 4 Fat zombies for 2.5k, 1 4.5k chest, and 7 1.5 Napads.

Tuesday, May 07, 2013 @ 06:34:21 PM

Thursday, January 08, 2015 @ 02:01:59 PM

Ada's campaign, chapter 2-3 (underground lab). This will earn you a total of 24,500. If done on amateur it will take a max of 7 mins and if done on no hope difficulty i believe this will double.

Comment #51 by ThatCrazyChica
Monday, January 12, 2015 @ 09:55:44 PM

I agree with #50. Ada's campaign on Amateur is definitely the fastest way to earn points, as long as you have pipe bomb arrows.

Sunday, April 05, 2015 @ 08:27:39 AM

In no hope,i got more then 70,000 or higher just by doing the last section of Adas campain where you fight the big fat dude and all those creatures that come from the human cacoons

Easy way to do this is load up jake's campaign on chapter 4-3, it's called something like market, i don't remember the name exactly, put it on no hope difficulty since that will double all your XP you find, and play it.start moving during that section and you'll find a box which you can open to take 2000 XP points, if you move forwards until you can see the J'avo moving to the left, in that area, there's another box with 5000 XP in it, move on through the section until you get to the door in which both players need to use to progress through the level. after you load into the next area, save and quit and repeat. since it's on no hope difficulty, you'll get 14000 XP instead of 7000 XP and this process could be done in 2 minutes max, making this achievement super easy, just a bit time consum
