Introduction:

Another title from Suda 51, The writer/designer of Lollipop Chainsaw as well as No More Heroes And Shinji Mikami of the Resident Evil games.. Warning (or ++): This game has extensive sexual connotations and themes as well as brief scenes of nudity, if that bothers you avoid this game it is very proverbially interactive. Otherwise continue on in playing a mediocre Comedy Shooter title. Much of the jokes are akin to 80's action flicks and cut scenes are not skippable accounting for much of your time played and will start to feel like a grind on your third playthrough if not your second.

Missable Achievements:

I have listed below what achievements you should aim for on the first playthrough, as well as a possible order in which you're likely to get them. The Skullcussioner/shotgun should be used primarily for bosses, when you have completed the Dentist/SMG kills between chapters, or for your second playthrough.

  • Nasty Headache :1 * restart the checkpoint/die if necessary, you have 3 playthroughs to do it
  • Blood on The Dance Floor :1
  • Drunk in Public :1
  • Stingy Bastard :1
  • Fire in the Hole! :1
  • Trash 'em while they're out! :1 (you may or may not get this one your first playthrough depending on luck)
  • The Puppeteer :1 (may also be easier on hard, as demons have more HP)
  • The Talkative One :1
  • That's So Hot! :1
  • Fiesta Callente! :1
  • A Hole in your Head :1 * restart the checkpoint/die if necessary, you have 3 playthroughs to do it
  • The Orthodontist :1
  • Orthodontic Pleasure :1
  • High in Las Vegas :1 You will need to buy 41/42 Red gems from the store (available in 2-3).
  • Meatballs Lover :1/2
  • Skullblaster Master :1/2
  • Now that's a Big Fuckin' Gun :1/2


Preparation:

Follow This Guide through your Lemon hunter/Easy playthrough/Playthrough 1

Start on easy(Lemon Hunter) you will be aiming to get all the playthrough one achievements listed in the list above. Farm white gems, with which to buy red gems, at the 3 spots listed below with severe precedence to the TWO 999 Spots so that you can get High in Las Vegas on your easy playthrough, red gems raise in cost per difficulty (45/75/120), Normal is still obtainable but more difficult requiring heavy stomping farms, and hard is almost impossible.

You will unlock 33 achievements based off the story alone and its three difficulties. Using the Missable achievements list above, and their descriptions below, you will unlock the other 17.

There are 2 good spots to farm white gems where you can get to 999 rather quickly and efficiently and 1 more not so great spot but a good early start.

firstly in chapter 2-1 just after red gem #4 and during #5 getting the strawberry you will be instructed to light shot a goat head to stop demons from spawning, if you don't shoot the head they will crawl over the fence allowing you to just continually shoot off legs and stomp enemies for white gems.

The second spot is at 3-2 Red gem #15 you will follow the story into the lake and will be forced to chase an object in the water, if you forego this and move left from the initial broken bridge towards gem #15 you can farm demons continuously. I found it best to Light shot stun them and perform finishers by hitting which will also allow you to get the Trash 'em while they're out achievement with strong likelihood, as long as you don't continue to the right of the bridge they will continue to spawn.

The third spot would be at 4-3 red gem #22. Right after you cross the bookshelf you will fight a few ground crawlers and then be ambushed by an armored form of the shadow portal monsters you fought in the swamps. Whenever they attack if you just backup or evade roll they will miss and then Jump quickly backwards, if you hit them with the light shot stun WHILE they are jumping backwards you will knock them down. Immediately continue over to them and start stomping them using the as long as you continue to stomp them they will produce white gems allowing you to cap at 999 again. Rarely it won't let you collect gems whilst stomping just stop stomping and knock him down again and it should work. Video can be seen Here in xxthegodofwarx's post

After easy finish up by playing normal and hard, order doesn't matter, while working on the Skull/shotgun kills and any other kill related achievements you may have missed. See Legion Hunter for any hard playthrough tips.

Adios George (Beast form)20
Defeat George Beast Boss 

Story Related, Can't be missed

You will fight this boss in chapter 2-4. George's beast boss form will consist of 3 phases. In this 1st phase George will ride around on his horse chasing towards you to perform an attack, if you stay behind him you can eliminate all if not most of his attacks. If he does attack, a simple evade will do the trick. After about 20 seconds of riding around he will defecate a ring of darkness step inside and shoot the Red blood core on his back, this will knock his horse down where you will shoot at the stomach of his horse while he is pinned, use your shotgun for this. The horse will rise and he will jump to the center pedestal, once he rears continue to shoot him with the shotgun or pistol equivalent while evade rolling to avoid the 7-10 spears he will throw. Repeat this twice to move to phase 2.

Phase 2 will consist of George walking around the outside ring whilst doing Slam and Swipe attacks, rolls will help you avoid these but keeping your distance is a better strategy. Once you destroy one of nine of the blood orbs(2 on elbows, 2 on front shins, 2 on back shins,and 3 on lower back) he will drop to his knee rendering him immobile this is the opportune time to use the shotgun to shoot his other orbs, prioritize shooting the elbows and the lower back as they are harder to line up with at will. When he is downed sometimes he will puke slugs/worms and they will dug up through the ground to attack you. Destroying orbs will reset this and on every difficulty I personally never even saw the attack.

Phase 3 is very simple as soon as he is done and you can see the tentacles shoot him in the stomach, should take 2-4 shots.

Don't Fear the Reaper 120
Defeat Maras Grim (Sister Grim) Boss 

Story Related, Can't be missed

You will fight this boss in chapter 3-1. This fight will consist of two phases. In phase 1 she will throw scythes at you you can evade roll to avoid these attacks and wait till she does the slam attack.

Once she does it will plunge the world into darkness and become phase 2, shoot her glowing red chest with a light shot forcing her to open up her chest to show her blood orb for you to shoot bringing you back to phase one, if necessary you can shoot the goat head up on the wall to bring you out of darkness but if you just spin around to find her after entering darkness you should be quick enough even on hard.

She should perpetually go into phase two after every blood orb destruction until she's dead. Otherwise, rinse and repeat.

Don't Fear the Reaper 220
Defeat Kauline Grim (Sister Grim) Boss (1) 

Story Related, Can't be missed

You will fight this boss in chapter 3-3. Similar to Maras grim this fight will consist of two phases. In phase 1 she will throw scythes at you you can evade roll to avoid these attacks and wait till she does the slam attack. Once she does it will be phase two and plunge the world into darkness, she will split into Clones of herself and all of which will attack you.

Upon the split the REAL form can always be picked out by her glowing red chest, again shoot her with a light shot bringing you out of darkness and allowing you to damage her.

She also will perpetually enter Phase two upon orb destruction but will add more clones with each split making it harder to spot the real one. All clones will die to a light shot if it makes it easier or if one clone is coming in to attack you but prioritize the real form to get you out of darkness quickly. Otherwise, rinse and repeat.

Adios George (Human form)20
Defeat George Human Boss 

Story Related, Can't be missed

You will fight this boss in chapter 2-2. This will consist of two phases directly from the start the first phase is more or less explained by force, shoot the light barrels when George is close and it will knock him to the ground shoot his face while he's downed and repeat this until he goes into phase 2.

He will take the goat head and run to a random spawn in the circus area, simply tilt your camera up to find the Red Ring beacon and go to that point to shoot the goat head with a light shot restarting phase one. Repeat this process twice for a total of 3 rotations and he will be dead. During phase 1 barrels will respawn so don't worry about that on the hard difficulty. During the phase 2 darkness hearts can found along the way.

Make sure to shoot the goat head after the boss fight if it's still dark.

Skullblaster Master15
Defeat 50 enemies with the SKULLBLASTER (6) 

You will get this weapon at the end of act 4 making it somewhat difficult to get 50 kills with both the SMG and the Shotgun equivalent. I chose to do this on the first playthrough and do the dentist achievements on the second playthrough but it is advised to pick one. Any kill shot with this gun will count even if you have damaged them with another gun first.

Nasty Headache20
Perform 5 Head Shots in a row with any weapon except Big Boner (12) 

The easiest way to get this achievement is by getting the 5 headshots in a row during the chapter 1-1 tutorial mission before you pick your difficulty setting. You can get this on your first playthrough or during one of the subsequent ones when you are used to getting headshots on tier 1 demons. Aim right at the center of the Peak of the demon's forehead or slightly above his head as this will eliminate any stray shots generally hitting shoulders. You are allowed to miss shots BETWEEN headshots but you CANNOT shoot other body parts. you can tell you got a headshot if the camera/time slows down into black and white and zooms in on the headpop.

The Puppeteer30
Perform a Head Shot right after a Leg Mutilation when the enemy is flying back in the air (5) 

This will likely be one of the two most difficult ones for you. The best way to do this is to use the dentist as seen in this wonderful video:

Now That's a Big Fuckin' Gun15
Defeat 40 enemies with the SKULLFEST 9000 (10) 

You will pick up this upgrade in chapter 3-3. Nothing fancy to this just kill 40 demons. I chose to do this on the first playthrough and do the dentist achievements on the second playthrough but it is advised to pick one. Any kill shot with this gun will count even if you have damaged them with another gun first.

A Hole in your Head20
Perform 5 headshots in a row with the BIG BONER (3) 

This achievement can only be completed in chapter 4-1 right after Johnson requests you make the phone calls. This will come fairly naturally as long as you are aiming for their head ( The Giant RED spot on their head). You should be trying to lead your target slightly and compensate slightly for the bounce in their walk by aiming ahead to where they will be, making this achievement very easy. If necessary feel free to quit game and reload the checkpoint to ensure you get this.

Orthodontic Pleasures15
Defeat 50 enemies with THE DENTIST 

You will pick up this upgrade in chapter 4-3. Nothing fancy to this just kill 50 demons. I chose to do this on the second playthrough and do the shotgun achievements on the first playthrough but it is advised to pick one. Any kill shot with this gun will count even if you have damaged them with another gun first.

Drunk in Public10
Knock back 3 drinks in a row (1) 

You must Be missing health for this to count properly, you should for sure get this on your hard playthrough knocking multiple sake's back subsequently. If you would like this in playthrough 1 (lemon hunter) you can control the damage you take until you get low enough and then knock back three sake drinks to unlock this achievement.

Stingy Bastard10
Save more than 300 White Gems in your inventory (2) 

Assuming you are following my guide and using the two farming spots you will get this in the grind for 999 white gems, otherwise you can get this by just not spending anything until you hit 300 white gems and then finally buying items. On easy it's quite simple to go through the game without buying anything in the first place.

High in Las Vegas75
Recover all available Red Gems in the game. (26) 

This is worded improperly you don't need to collect all red gems you need to collect all red gem upgrades. There are 80 upgrades in all and it will require you to farm in order to get this achievement. You can find Aruwal's guide Here to help in getting the other 39 gems available, he lists 38 but I always ended up getting 39. 8-9 may prove difficult as sometimes one of the demons can't be destroyed by the chandelier in the 3rd part of the tower ride.

For farming white gems:

There are 2 good spots to farm white gems where you can get to 999 rather quickly and efficiently and 1 more not so great spot but a good early start.

firstly in chapter 2-1 just after red gem #4 and during #5 getting the strawberry you will be instructed to light shot a goat head to stop demons from spawning, if you don't shoot the head they will crawl over the fence allowing you to just continually shoot off legs and stomp enemies for white gems.

The second spot is at 3-2 Red gem #15 you will follow the story into the lake and will be forced to chase an object in the water, if you forego this and move left from the initial broken bridge towards gem #15 you can farm demons continuously. I found it best to Light shot stun them and perform finishers by hitting which will also allow you to get the Trash 'em while they're out achievement with strong likelihood, as long as you don't continue to the right of the bridge they will continue to spawn.

The third spot would be at 4-3 red gem #22. Right after you cross the bookshelf you will fight a few ground crawlers and then be ambushed by an armored form of the shadow portal monsters you fought in the swamps. Whenever they attack if you just backup or evade roll they will miss and then Jump quickly backwards, if you hit them with the light shot stun WHILE they are jumping backwards you will knock them down. Immediately continue over to them and start stomping them using the as long as you continue to stomp them they will produce white gems allowing you to cap at 999 again. Rarely it won't let you collect gems whilst stomping just stop stomping and knock him down again and it should work. Video can be seen Here in xxthegodofwarx's post

Fire in the Hole!15
Defeat 3 enemies at once using the Barrels of Light (1) 

This is most easily achieved in chapter 2-3. When you first come across the sushi lamp it will lead you into a tunnel with 3 demons with Barrels of light behind them. Shoot the barrels and this achievement is yours.

Fiesta Caliente!30
Defeat 5 enemies at once using the Hot Boner (5) 

One of a few spots to pick this up is in chapter 4-3 Right after you go up from the ground floor of the book cases and the first introduction to the electric demons. you will fight 3 demons, then 2 demons. Next a wave of 5-6 demons will hop over a desk right next to a light barrel (this is also another great spot for Barrels of light) If you charge a bomb right after the second set of baddies and plant it at the large group's feet you can blast all of them in one fell swoop. Another spot for this is at the end of chapter 3-3 A group of demons will stumble out of a cave as it explodes you can also use the charge shot here for an easy 5 kills.

Trash'em while they're out!15
Perform all 5 brutal kills on Normal Demons frozen by the Light Shot (13) 

The 5 brutal kills are

  • Knee bash to chin
  • Torch in the throat
  • Left hook Right hook
  • Headbutt
  • Crotch kick and torch bash


The perform these Use your light shot on any lower demon (the regular walking dead...>_>) move to them while they are stunned and hit the . The best place to do this is during the chapter 3-2 farm listed in the Preparation section or High in Las Vegas

The Orthodontist15
Defeat 30 enemies with the TEETHGRINDER (4) 

You will pick up this upgrade in chapter 3-3. Nothing fancy to this just kill 30 demons. I chose to do this on the second playthrough and do the shotgun achievements on the first playthrough but it is advised to pick one. Any kill shot with this gun will count even if you have damaged them with another gun first.

I Defeated the Last Big Boss!20
Defeat Fleming Boss (14) 

Story Related, Can't be missed

You will fight this boss in chapter 5-4. I shall post a video for this fight since many seem to have difficulty on Hard beating this boss. Also from Ra1nKing.

Love Suicide20
Defeat Paula Boss (4) 

Story Related, Can't be missed

You will fight this boss in chapter 5-5. The fight in phase one will consist of her shooting at you in light or dark form, roll around the room and use the key you acquired in every door until you find one that opens, heal up if necessary and then start shooting at her glowing wings using the SMG until the wings are destroyed and you move to phase two.

Phase two there will be a wall in front and behind you that causes MASSIVE damage you CAN get caught in it but not for more than a second and not without full health or it will effectively kill you. At this point the wall will move as the boss does and you have to shoot the other four wings whilst continuing to pursue her, continue to use the lock-on SMG to destroy her other wings, as you destroy each one the distance between the walls on either end will diminish and may make it hard to acquire a lock on the harder difficulties. Continue until you kill her as quickly as possible, ammo and drinks are available in the tunnel. Don't worry about the random demon in phase 2 just damage her.

Annoying Mosquito20
Defeat Elliot Beast Boss 

Story Related, Can't be missed

You will fight this boss in chapter 3-4. This fight is a fairly straight forward one and will be two phases. The first phase will require you to damage armour on Eliot's wings and then the wings themselves he only has two attacks where in he will shoot his feathers at you when he swoops in close to the bridge or throw a molten ball of lava at you, both of which you can negate damage completely by rolling until the attack is over and then continuing fire. It is best to use the SMG/teether for this fight as it has a large spread and high fire rate. When he lands on the bridge for phase two start off by using your light shot on his lower mid section until the blood core becomes visible. Once visible you can use the shotgun or the SMG to shoot at the core, he will swoop at you but rolling towards him as he attacks will make him fly past you turn around and continue shooting, You shouldn't even get hit using this method. Keep shooting until the core explodes and he dies.

Don't Fear the Reaper 320
Defeat Giltine Grim (Sister Grim) Boss (2) 

Story Related, Can't be missed

You will fight this boss in chapter 4-3. This fight may prove more difficult for using the shotgun equivalent and you may need to use the boner or SMG/Teether for this fight. Phase 1 will be similar to the other grimms in that homing scythes will be thrown at you in two forms(different attacks): 2 large ones and 6 golden small ones, just evade roll to dodge them and continue to shoot her regularly in her glowing red head. after enough damage she will force the world dark and continue to move back and forth while she sends out dark shielded demons. Shoot her Blood core while she moves back and forth to pull her back out of darkness or shoot the goat head if necessary to repeat the process. after the first core destruction she will introduce a new attack where scythes tear through the ground at a fast pace towards you, evade roll and continue shooting. rinse and repeat until she is dead.

Flat Lust20
Defeat Justine Boss 

Story Related, Can't be missed

You will fight this boss in chapter 4-6. You will start the fight as you move to the right of the 2d world off the cliff, Justine will appear on the right side with 3 red spots on her face mask, shoot this with a regular shot until all three are destroyed, Avoid green slime/acid as much as possible by dodging or shooting them. After this immediately start using your light shot on her face again to drain her of green liquid. Once this is complete her face will be exposed you can then shoot her regularly but she will move to the left side of the screen flail her arms up slightly and then finally grab you, staying in the top left portion of the screen will keep you slightly safe from slime until she grabs you. While in her hand she will move you up and down towards and away from slime attacks while you continue to shoot her face. Just keep attacking her until she dies for good.

The Talkative One15
Defeat 20 enemies with the TEETHER (1) 

You will pick up this upgrade in chapter 2-2. Nothing fancy to this just kill 20 demons. I got this on the first playthrough but it may be advised to pick shotgun or SMG for a playthrough. Any kill shot with this gun will count even if you have damaged them with another gun first.

Meatballs Lover15
Defeat 30 enemies with the SKULLCUSSIONER 

You will pick up this upgrade in chapter 2-4. Nothing fancy to this just kill 30 demons. I got this on the first playthrough but it may be advised to pick shotgun or SMG for a playthrough. Any kill shot with this gun will count even if you have damaged them with another gun first.

That's So Hot!15
Defeat 20 enemies with the HOTBONER 

You will pick up this upgrade in chapter 3-1. Nothing fancy to this just kill 20 demons. You will easily get this between getting the kills for Fiesta caliente! and generally killing people when not using the SMG or shotgun for kills. This will also come in great use in chapter 5-1+ to kill the Red tube electric guys by planting a bomb on them and shooting the bomb, this works wonders for your hard playthrough.

You are invincible during evade rolls... evade roll spam.

Spend more money on drinks, farm if possible, and focus on damage upgrades avoid charge speed upgrade it's pretty pointless.

Use your better judgement when trying to stomp enemies to farm or just kill targets to avoid damage, upgrades will prove very useful and you can abuse the checkpoint system but can be very costly. if you have to stun enemies crawling to you with your light shot and then allow one to get close for an easy stomp kill.

The Two spinning demons at the end of chapter 4-5 in the cave can be killed easily by evading out of the cave and rolling to the left causing them to crash into the mouth of the cave, flipping on their backs, allowing you to shoot them - finish them with the Skullcussioner.

In chapter 5-1+ to kill the Red tube electric guys just plant a bomb on them, with the hot boner charge shot, and shoot the bomb. it should take 2-3 charge shots. Evade > Charge > Fire.

Blood On The Dance Floor15
Defeat 10 enemies with the Stomp Attack (2) 

To get a stomp attack kill you must shoot an enemy with any gun in a leg of your choosing continually to maim him and cause him to fall to the ground. once this is completed walk to him and hit . this will not count as a weapon kill but it fairly essential to get the required red gems for High in Las Vegas. Note: the armored demons, or other specials, can not be maimed and stomped. General rule of thumb is that it's the basic tier 1 walking demons.
