|Omega Five - Achievement Guide|
XboxAchievements.com - Every Point Counts
There are 12 achievements with a total of 200 points.
|Cleared Stage 1 (10 points)|
|Clear Stage 1 in Single Player Arcade Mode.|
Just beat the first stage of the game with any character in arcade mode. Avoid staying near the Yeti-Snow Machine during both encounters as it can do major damage and is hard to dodge. The boss is fairly simple. Learn the patterns of the three formations and you should get through just fine.
|Cleared Stage 2 (10 points)|
|Clear Stage 2 in Single Player Arcade Mode.|
Just beat the second stage of the game with any character in arcade mode. Learn the pattern of the snake mini-boss. The most dangerous part of this fight is getting hit by the body itself because it moves fairly quickly. Avoid using lock-ons for the mini-boss, as the turrets that circle will distract the fire. Shoot when the mini-boss drops its shields to attack, stay to the sides to avoid the quills, and avoid the turrets when they turn blue and chase you.
|Cleared Stage 3 (10 points)|
|Clear Stage 3 in Single Player Arcade Mode.|
Just beat the third stage of the game with any character in arcade mode. If you are using the character Ruby, the mini-bosses will be a piece of cake. Simply lock on and concentrate on dodging.
|Cleared Stage 4 (10 points)|
|Clear Stage 4 in Single Player Arcade Mode.|
Just beat the last stage of the game with any character in arcade mode. Shoot the heads of the trains as soon as possible. The green fire cannot be repelled and is hard to dodge. Shoot the boss when it manifests. It will explode and summon meteors which can be destroyed with gunfire.
You can also use the orbs as a shield against the meteors. When the meteors come into contact with the orbs, they will be destroyed. Since you can repel the orbs with gunfire, make sure you knock them around to destroy meteors.
|Ruby Master (25 points)|
|Complete Single Player Arcade Mode without continues using Ruby.|
Beat the entire arcade mode without dying using Ruby. Ruby's Type B (blue) weapon is a must. The fully powered laser can clear most enemies in record time and bounce off walls. Learn to use the anchor weapon on tougher enemies and bosses. Latch on and concentrate on dodging. Let the anchor do the damage and apply primary fire only when safe. Learn to use dimension shield, it takes far less health to use then getting shot will. You can also use the anchor to block enemy fire as well. Sometimes it will save you trouble of using dimension shield.
|Sensei Master (25 points)|
|Complete Single Player Arcade Mode without continues using Sensei.|
Beat the entire arcade mode without dying using Sensei. This is the easiest one out of all the character master achievements. Sensei's sword can destroy enemy fire AND reach through walls and shields. Master the sword and the game will be a piece of cake. Don't be afraid to use bombs if enemies get overwhelming.
|Tempest Master (25 points)|
|Complete Single Player Arcade Mode without continues using Tempest.|
Beat the entire arcade mode without dying using Tempest. Master using Tempest's bullet deflection skill. You'll notice enemy fire turning green when close to him. Release or flick the right stick to send it back at enemies and prevent yourself from taking damage. Type B's secondary mode works wonders for clearing screens of multiple enemies.
|"R.A.D" Master (25 points)|
|Complete Single Player Arcade Mode without continues using R.A.D.|
Beat the entire Arcade mode without dying using R.A.D. Much the same as Ruby, although R.A.D. is a bit slower on the attack. Memorize enemy and boss patterns and concentrate on firing and letting the lock on do the work. Also, remember her anchor can block some bullets just like with Ruby, so use it to save yourself if you can move fast enough.
|30 Second Max. Bonus (15 points)|
|Maintain the max. bonus for 30 seconds or more.|
This is an easy achievement to get. Use Ruby's full powered Type B weapon on the first level during the swarm of enemies before your second encounter with the Yeti-Snow Machine. The amount of enemies and the use of lasers should keep the multiplier for more then enough time.
|Don't Let Me Go (15 points)|
|Hold onto an enemy for 10 seconds or longer with the anchor using Ruby.|
Stage 3 is the easiest to get this. Latch your anchor onto one of the two circular, multi-armed mini-boss robots and stay close. You should get this without problem.
|Untouchable (15 points)|
|Repel 20 or more enemy bullets using Tempest.|
The best areas to try are during the snake mini-boss in level 2, or during the swarm of disc robots before the boss in stage 3. Guide the bullets so as to hold them on the screen for longer. Collect more, and don't get hit or you will lose the bullets. Also, in the first level there are a few areas with two crab robots. Wait for them to shoot their spray of bullets. Patiently watch for the graze barrier to catch all the bullets, and release.
Comment by Todayisforgotten: That last section before the video ends is the optimal place to acquire the achievement.
|Incredible Restraint (15 points)|
|Go 30 seconds without swinging Sensei's sword.|
Simply avoid using Sensei's sword weapon for 30 seconds, the first stage is the easiest to get this. If you are worried, don't shoot anything and just dodge all enemy fire and targets until it unlocks.
