Bastion is a beautiful and easy to complete Action RPG. You control the "Kid" through various areas searching for parts to restore "The Bastion." While you play through the game a nameless narrator will comment your every move. It will take you between 6 to 8 hours for the full 200 . You need a second playthrough to complete New Game+ and for the second ending, which will only costs you about 90 minutes of your time when running straight to the end.

1st Playthough / First ending:
Just play through the game without much worry and do what you want. You can't miss anything in the game. If you complete an area and didn't pick up a certain item, you can buy it later in the Lost & Found house. But it will cost you, so looking for them makes it a little easier. They're not hidden very well. Remember to speak to the two survivors after you rescue them to get "The Survivor" and "The Singer".

Get all the mementos or buy them. Then talk to the people to unlock the four animals. This will net you "Pet Sitter". You need certain mementos, which - again - you can't miss. Right before the end you will unlock the last of the three Who Knows Where arenas. Complete them for "Mind Voyager".

You will have all 11 weapons at this point. So upgrade each of them at least once to net you "Kid-at-Arms". It is also best to complete every Vigil from the memorial for "Vigilante" and "Altruist". After everything is done, finish the story and choose one of the endings. You either use the bastion or stay in the new world.

This playthrough will get you 150

2nd Playthrough - New Game + / Second Ending:
If you've done everything on your first run, you should now only have to beat New Game+, which will take you about 90 minutes. Just run through and only defeat enemies when they block your way. This time choose the different ending. If you chose to use the Bastion ("The End"), then choose to embrace the new world by staying ("The Beginning") or vice versa.

You should now have 200 in Bastion. If you still missed anything, you can always choose New Game+ again. The only thing you will have to do again are a few Vigils like getting first place seven times in challenges.

There are 12 achievements with a total of 200 points

  • Complete the story.

    After you've restored the Bastion completely, you'll have to choose whether you want to restore the old world or stay. Choose the first one to restore the old world. This will only net you this achievement. You won't get The Beginning (Stay and embrace the new world). But since you need a second playthrough for Calamity Kid (Beating New Game +), just pick one choice the first time and the other one the second time around.

  • Complete the Wharf District.

    Story related and cannot be missed.

    This will be your first achievement. After you complete the introduction, you'll land in the Wharf District, which will take about 10 minutes to finish the first time. After that you'll land on the bastion and the achievement will unlock.

  • Get four different domesticated creatures in the Bastion.

    You need four mementos to get the pets. Those can be found in the areas or bought from Lost & Found later. It doesn't matter. When you get the memento, just go to the people and talk to them about it. Since you also need the other mementos for a Vigil, just buy all of them (or find). They doesn't cost much. Easy as that.

    Important: Buy all the mementos before the Ura invasion. If you don't have all the pets at this part, there is a chance of missing the achievement. So just make sure you always buy new mementos after every mission.

  • Complete at least 50 percent of the Vigils in the Memorial.

    Refer to Altruist for more information.

  • Complete 100 percent of the Vigils in the Memorial.

    Before you can do any of these, you have to get the memorial. When you get your fourth shard, you can build it on the right side of the bastion. At first, you'll only have 12 Vigils. After you upgrade the memorial and get all 11 weapons, you will have 23 Vigils that you have to complete. Some may seem daunting at first but are all really easy. Only the one for getting first place in seven challenges can be a little tricky.

    For a help to all Vigils, refer to this guide.

  • Complete the story in New Game Plus.

    Just finish the story and you will unlock New Game +. Choose it at the start screen and just run through the game once again. If you have all the other non story related achievements, you can finish it in about 90 minutes. Don't try to kill enemies unless you really want to and only fight when you have to defeat someone for the level to progress.

    If you didn't get one of the achievements on you first run, just do it here. Everything will carry over except for a few Vigils like the one for doing the seven challenges. So it's better to finish those off on your first run.

  • Complete each trip to Who Knows Where.

    There are three arenas that you'll unlock while playing through the game. Two of them are mementos that you'll have to find or buy from the Lost & Found, if you didn't get them in the area. The last one will be unlocked as part of the story. They are all on the south side of the bastion. Just press when next to them and fight you're way through the 20 waves.

    - Pipe
    - Stockpot
    - Bedroll

    It's best to wait until the end. I like to use the upgraded shotgun, because it is quick, does a huge amount of damage and can kill a whole bunch of enemies at once. You should also equip a few good potions. Get one extra try and 2+ water bottles. this will make the arenas much easier.

    Utilise the roll and counter attack (blocking with when the enemy attacks you). This will instantly kill the towers and some weaker enemies.

  • Use the Forge to apply at least one upgrade to every weapon.

    Right before the last area in the game, you'll get the last weapon. All you need now is one of five upgrades for each of them. You can find these anywhere and it would be hard not to get one of each, if you also do the weapon challenges. But if you miss all five for one of them, they can also be bought from Lost & Found.

    Now go to the Forge and spend the few bucks on the first (You will probably have upgraded a few weapons already) upgrade for every weapon. It doesn't matter which one. Just don't forget to do it, before you enter the last area.

    - Cael Hammer
    - Breaker's Bow
    - Fang Repeater
    - War Machete
    - Scrap Musket
    - Dueling Pistols
    - Brusher's Pike
    - Army Carbine
    - Galleon Mortar
    - Fire Bellows
    - Calamity Cannon
