For the most part this is a simple game to complete, however you need to complete the Uberschizoid mode which makes the game significantly more challenging to fully complete.
Welcome to the Schizoid Road Map. With the exception of the "Playing The Field" and "Schizoid Sensei" achievements, you can get all of the achievements in one playthrough if you're playing in Uberschizoid mode.
You can miss the following achievements whilst playing through (In chronological order):
- "Flitt Breeder"
Level 5 "My Man Flitt"
Level 12 "Smartbomb"
- "21st Century Schizoid Man"
Level 21 "Tyger Tyger" -
Level 36 "Razorwire"
- "Schiz Hunter"
Level 38 "Needle In A Haystack"
- "Huevos Done Naked"
Level 47 "Los Huevos"
- "Barber Of Schizzville"
Level 74 "Fairly Odd Couple"
- "One Mind, Two Goals"
20 Gold or Silver medals
Check the guide for specifics on unlocking these achievements.
Step1: Offline Achievements
This is a game that makes it very difficult to miss any achievements, simply play through the game on Uberschizoid mode and complete the above achievements as you reach those levels. If you miss any replay the mission until you get the achievement.
Make sure to also try all of the four modes at least once for the "Playing The Field" achievement, this can be done at anytime and cannot be missed.
The only other thing to keep in mind is that you need to get 20 Gold or Silver medals whilst playing in Uberschizoid mode, this can be any combination of levels, you most likely have this by the time you complete the mode, if not replay the earlier levels until you have 20 Gold or Silver medals.
Step 2: Online Only achievements:
At any point you can unlock the "Schizoid Sensei" achievement by playing online with an Xbox Live partner and getting a combination of 10 of any type of medal from any level.
If you need someone to help you unlock this achievement post here (LINK).
Most of the achievements in this game should come to you pretty easily, if you're having trouble with any of the achievements find someone to play Co-Op with you. This should make things easier for you. If you're having trouble with Uberschizoid mode, then try the method posted in the guide.

|Destroy an enemy with a razorwire.|
You will first encounter the razor wire Power-Up on Level 36 named "Razorwire". This achievement can be unlocked in any of the four modes (Bot Training, Local Co-op, Uberschizoid, or Co-op over Xbox Live).
|Playing The Field||15|
|Play a game in each mode - Xbox LIVE, Local Co-Op, Wingman Bot Training, and Uberschizoid.|
Play a game in each of the modes listed, I don't think that you are required to complete any of the modes, as the achievement unlocked immediately after starting an Xbox Live game for me:
|Destroy all enemies on level 12 ("Smartbomb") with a single smartbomb.|
On Level 12 "Smartbomb" lore all enemies to one side of the enclosed area they are trapped in and then detonate the bomb, I found that they would often follow the player carrying the bomb. To detonate the bomb have both players touch it.
|Barber Of Schizzville||20|
|Shave the Orbiddles from 8 Astramoebas on a level, without destroying Astramoebas or losing a life.|
For this achievement the best Level is 74 called "Fairly Odd Couple". There are 12 Astramoebas on this level all orange, with blue Orbiddles.
This method CANNOT be used in the wingman mode as the computer will destroy the Astramoebas, but will work in Local Co-Op, Xbox Live Co-Op, or in Uberschizoid mode.
|Destroy 30 Schizzes on a single level, using powerups and without losing any lives.|
Once the level starts head for the bomb (top right corner) to clear as many enemies as possible, try to move the bomb away from the sides so that you destroy as many enemies as possible. Then head toward the bottom left corner to pick up the razorwire try to stay as far apart from your partner as possible without the line turning yellow, you will have roughly 20-30 seconds before the razorwire runs out.
|Get a gold medal on level 5 ("My Man Flitt") without destroying any Flitts.|
This achievement require you to survive on level 5 "My Man Flitt" without destroying any of the Flitts (the large egg type enemies), and receiving a gold medal (which means you can't lose any lives.). After a short time these enemies will turn into indestructible yellow enemies (Schizzes), once all flitts have transformed you will complete the level, and unlock the achievement.
|21st Century Schizoid Man||15|
|Complete level 21 ("Tyger Tyger") either in Local Co-Op, Xbox LIVE, or Uberschizoid.|
Complete Level 21 "Tyger Tyger" in any of the modes (Local Co-op, Uberschizoid, or Co-op over Xbox Live). Your main problem on this level will be the star enemies, I've found the most effective method against these enemies is to have the opposite colour player to the star you wish to destroy approach the star, at which point the star will chase that player, the other player can then fly through the first player and destroy the star. Keep in mind that the stars will flee from the player of the same colour, so be careful not to chase a star into your partner.
|One Mind, Two Goals||20|
|Earn 20 silver or gold medals in Uberschizoid mode.|
As the description states you must get any combination of silver or gold medals in Uberschizoid mode, this is without a doubt the most challenging mode to play. However many of the early levels are impossible to die on, so several medals will be earned easily, the rest will come with practice. If you cannot or don't want to play this mode properly you could have a friend control the other player, however this will only work for local games.
|Earn 10 medals (any combination of gold, silver, and bronze) over Xbox LIVE.|
Can be done in any of the Xbox Live modes (Private, Custom, or Quick), so boosting is possible. This shouldn't prove very difficult as you will be allowed to die up to two times before you will lose the medal, and this can be done on the beginning levels which being the easiest are your best bet for this achievement, should not take more than a few minutes.
|Huevos Done Naked||20|
|Gold level 47 ("Los Huevos") without activating any powerups.|
My advice for getting this achievement is to play the game in Local Co-op or Co-op over Xbox Live, as playing in the other two modes will make this achievement much more difficult. Uberschizoid because you need to control both players very carefully and quickly, and bot mode because the bot has a tendency to pick up the Power-Ups ruining the achievement.
|Destroy 2500 Scorpios.|
I have now received this achievement I was up to level 64 in Wingman mode, level 21 on Uberschizoid mode, around level 64 over Xbox Live, and level 47 on Co-op when the achievement unlocked.
|Corpus Callosum Severed||20|
|Complete level 119 ("Ragnarok") in Uberschizoid mode.|
For this achievement you have two options either: By yourself, or with a friend.
