The Golden Survival Guide

Collect all Gold Survive Badges

There are 12 Survive Badges. To get all 12 You have to...

Use a Rewinds a total of 10/30/100 times:
Press and hold  to rewind, do this 100 times for these badges.

Survive 2/3/5 runs in a Survive Event
Survive your first/2/4 runs with no rewinds
Survive your first/2/4 runs with no rewinds and no survival gear

Once you reach the bottom of the run in a survive event, you are transported back to the beginning, survive five of these runs and you will earn these badges. Pick the type of survival you are most comfortable with and go slowly and carefully. Avoid Survival events that require gear like Oxygen Tanks and Cold Panels, as failure is inevitable.

I recommend Trees, especially The Rockies - Extinguisher Tower - Wrecking Crew (Survive It!), as trees are very easy to avoid if you keep a slow pace, even without the survival gear or rewind. Just remember that the more consecutive runs you do, the more damage you take from falls and crashes. Eventually any impact will kill you.

This had to be one of the hardest Achievements. Going down a Deadly Descent (I used Trees) 4 times without Armor or rewinding was so difficult.

@1 I had no problem with it, just go slow, I used level 10 mac and did both no rewinds/armor 4 times. Just gotta be careful, it helps if you know the track well.

it's not particularl hard, just LONG and so frustrating, especially if you mess up on the lap 4/5 (depending on what medal you're going for). either go for the trees deadly descent in Mount Robson, Rockies, or Wrecking Crew, Extinguisher Tower, also Mount Robson.

Just go slow, don't do any tricks and you'll get it eventually

Range - Siberia
Mountain - Kara-Oiuk
Drop - Critical Mass

Stay on the right side and go down slow. Pick a character with no +speed bonus and use their default board, you won't be jumping or boosting so you won't need any of it. It may not be the easiest way, but it's sure not the hardest either.

I was struggling to do the 4 runs no armor or rewind and then I tried again a day later and got to run 9 1/2 with no armor or rewinds and scored about 21000. I am very bad so this proves it can be done. Use the drop at the extinguisher tower as it is fairly easy and stay at a slow pace. Play it a few times to get used to the track and you can memorize it fairly easily. Hope this helps.

#4's strategy is gold. Should net you It's Cheating, Totally Natural and Survivor once you get the hang of the very few avoidances when you stick to the right. There's a spot maybe 1/3rd to 1/2 the way in where it looks like you need to thread a small patch to avoid the end of a chasm and some trees. Just go through the trees, if you get hit you should be fine as there's no health meter. Usually the board corrected itself a tiny bit to avoid them, though. Besides that on straight stretches (especially ice) just tap back on the controller a little and you should either slide or do a 180 ground spin. It'll slow you down a little.

Kudos to #4's strategy - makes it very easy!! Just be careful right at the end as there is a hole right by the finish that may catch you out first run down
