Cursed Gold

Achieve 5 Gold Awards.  

You can track your progress by going to the Social Hub (Press  > Social Hub > Stat Awards). 
There are only 5 new challenges to achieve gold on:

NOTE: The DLC missions CANNOT be replayed to get any missing kills or stats.

  • Vampire Hunter: Kill 200 Jiang Shi 
  • Demon Hunter: Kill 20 Yaoguai
  • Demonic Exorcism: Kill 15 Yaoguai sith with the Peachwood Sword
  • Hard to get: Avoid 100 Jiang Shi bites
  • Underworld Offering: Find all 10 Hell Shrines

• Vampire Hunter: Kill 200 Jiang Shi - (YOU MUST KILL THE ENEMY WITH MELEE COMBAT, CAR KILLS DO NOT COUNT) Jiang Shis are the most common enemies in this DLC, simply completing the story and the secondary content should get you about 100 kills. An easy way to get the remaining kills would be to find an energy source (light blue circles that continuously respawn enemies) and just grind out the kills before you deactivate the energy source. These energy sources only appear in Story missions and some secondary content (blue markers on the map).

If you have completed all the story missions and secondary content you will have to look for the Jiang Shi by driving around Northpoint. Alleyways seem to be a good location to find them. They can also be found near most Hell Money Shrines. If you can't find any Jiang Shi simply save, exit to main menu, reload and revisit the same alleyways and Shrines.

• Demon Hunter: Kill 20 Yaoguai - Read Demonic Exorcism.

• Demonic Exorcism: Kill 15 Yaoguai with the Peachwood Sword - NEVER use the Peachwood swords on the Jiang Shi, if you see a bunch of Jiang Shi, drop your sword, defeat them and pick up your sword again. Only use the sword on the Yaoguai, this will make it much easier to get the remaining kills. As you complete story missions, secondary content will be unlocked (Blue and Purple markers on map) Always do a blue mission first, you will get a Peachwood sword, then go to a purple marker, kill the Yaoguai with the sword. This will get you a few extra kills. 

After the story line is complete, drive around Northpoint and you will see a red marker (enemy marker) on your mini map. Those can either be Jiang Shi or a Peachwood Sword sticking out of the ground, grab the sword and Yaoguai will spawn, kill the Yaoguai with the sword and go look for another marker. This may sound hard but the swords are actually very common.

• Hard to get: Avoid 100 Jiang Shi bites - One of the Jiang Shi's attacks is biting your neck, simply counter, , when they bite. You should get a decent amount of these by just doing the story, secondary content and killing the 200 Jiang Shi you need for the Vampire Hunter award. 

To get the remaining counters simply grapple a Jiang Shi, , don't hit the Jiang Shi or move it around just wait a couple seconds, the Jiang Shi will free itself from your grapple and will ALWAYS go for the bite. Just counter it and repeat this on the Jiang Shi until you get the gold award or kill the Jiang Shi, if you kill it just do the same thing with another one. This is easier to do on the last Jiang Shi of a group since you won't have the worry about the other Jiang Shi trying to hit you.

• Underworld Offering: Find all 10 Hell Shrines - Look at "Hell Money" achievement for more information on where to find the Hell Shrines.

Here's a map of Yaoguai spawn locations for anyone still needing to kill some. Just pick up the peachwood sword and it will spawn.

When you completed story and if you need more Yaoguai kills you can just start new game without lost your previous stats

Guys i think i might have found an amazing trick to getting some of these challenges. You know the Blue and Purple Portals well don't complete them. The Purple portals have the Yaoguai spawn, Kill him and him only and drive away. Need a new Peachwood Sword? Well go throw some Jiang Shi into the blue portals, grab the sword and drive away. Once you drive away the status of that portal is reset!

Also for the biting one i noticed that if you grab the Jiang Shi and don't do anything eventually they will try and bite you! This is when u counter it.

I'm playing this on PC but i think it should be the same through out games.

Hopefully this will help any future gamers!

For countering a bite 100 times just hit B and grapple the enemy then wait 5 seconds for them to break the grapple and attempt to bite you. They turn red, then hit Y to counter. Easiest way.

If you need to quickly grind the last few Jiang Shi kills just save and reload then head right out of your apartment and at least a couple of them should spawn there.

Anyone still needing to grind out killing the Jiang Shi... Go to the blue portal just right of the Night Market, and there is a barrel with a fire in it in the alleyway. Just grab and throw them in there!

Just make sure you don't close the portal till after getting the gold...

Yeah what #13 said is a good way to get the 200 Jiang Shi kills. Wait until you have your first portal of enemies and continually throw them in the barrel. Also if you are having trouble getting the 20 Yao-gai kills just kill it and not the Jiang Shi. After that run away. By doing this it will think you didn't finish it and respawn him unlimited times.

I found a quick trick for doing this reliably. Simply go to a blue marker, defeat the Jiang Shi and get your Peachwood sword. Then go to a purple marker (the one closest to your home point is the easiest). Save your game and then defeat only the Yaoguai. Then load your save. You'll be back in your home with a fully charged Peachwood sword. Drive back to the nearest purple marker and defeat the Yaoguai again. Repeat until you get the achievement. Simple :)

Thanks for the helpful tip bluHatter.

Is this honestly miss able? Can you get it after you beat all the story missions? I'm just worried because I really want 100% and am not sure the accuracy of this being 'missable'.

I found several more Yaoguia locations that are displayed on the map. Two I can think of off the top of my head are in front of the secret hide out for the police, and the dock where you first confront Dogeyes
