Golden Axe: Beast Riders Achievement Guide
There are 40 achievements with a total of 1000 points
Forge the Axe!100
Complete the entire game.This will unlock after beating the last boss in the regular campaign mode. You can beat it on any difficulty and it will unlock. Note that there is no other achievements relating to beating the game on any certain difficulty, so you don’t have to worry about stacking or playing on the harder mode. This game was quoted to only take about 6 hours, but I found myself taking around 10.
Get 100% Titan Bonus.This should come along as you play the game. You should get this in the tutorial. If you don’t, you will obtain it while riding a beast and hitting things within the first few levels. See GOLDEN BOOST for more info.
Get "MAX" Titan Bonus.To explain, the Titan Bonus does not grand any special attacks or superhuman abilities. Though called Titan, you do not become any stronger! This is a loot multiplier. It gives you more money as you get a better percentage. Here is how it works:
This game has really only two different buttons for doing combos. X and A. There is a special flame that engulfs your sword when you time things correctly. It will take a few good tries, but soon you should be able to master the timing and do it throughout the game without thinking. You hit A or X, then right when your blade is about to go the opposite direction swung, hit the opposing combo button. So A then X or X then A. You will gain 10% to Titan Bonus for nailing the combo on them with a flamed blade. The combo that spins you in circles gives you 5% for each hit, meaning 10% if you nail both. Anyways, go ahead and do this all on the tutorial. You can do it when the tutorial asks you to perform counter attacks and dodge. Just keep killing the same guy over and over doing those special combo attacks. You will see your Titan Bonus on the top right hand of the screen. If you get hit at all, you will go back to 0%, so you must be careful not to let the enemy attack. Once you hit 1000% it will say Titan Max, and you will unlock this. You obviously unlocked Brutal Boost at 100%. If you are terrible at the timing and for the life of you suck…bad news is that you can’t get this any other way. I have obtained 1000 max on Grave of the Turtle Titan in the first challenge, but I cannot confirm if it would unlock your achievement. At the very start, run to the first enemy who is standing sort of by a big opened jaw with a spike on it (some animal skull). Press X and A at the same time and it will kick him onto the spike. Doing this granted me 1000 Max Titan bonus. It is hard to say if it gives the achievement, because it is just a booster that lasts a short amount of time.
Clear the first twenty waves in Trials of Tyris.NOTE: The trial descriptions are incorrect. It is really “Clear the first two trials.” I am not going to change it, just in case it confuses people who are referencing.
As you progress through the game you will unlock different levels of trials. At the main menu, pick the trials and it will show you what you have unlocked. You can pick whatever outfit you want, though it does not do anything but change your looks. It will also ask you to pick any weapon you have unlocked through obtaining certain amounts of loot. Pick the best one (minus the Battler Sword unless you are a freaking God at this game) and continue. Just beat the first trials and this achievement unlocks.
Clear the first forty waves in Trials of Tyris.Clear the 3rd and 4th trials. Just gotta unlock these through beating levels and then you can play them and get this achievement.
Clear all 60 waves in Trials of Tyris.This one you should have beaten the game, or at least on the last boss to get. You have to have unlocked all trials and beaten them all. You can obtain any ranking, use any weapon, and have it on any difficulty. The one I thought was the most difficult was the 5th trial.
Deliver 30 hits to those Gnomes, if you think you can!See Gnome Oppressor for more info.
Show your savvy by bringing your total Gnome hits to 60.See Gnome Oppressor for more info.
Hit Gnomes a total of 120 times to prove your prowess!Ok, while looking through the forums I noticed this is something people get confused about. A gnome is the little guys that pop up from underground and run around. There are blue, green, and yellow ones. They give you different things when you hit them. They cannot hurt you and won’t steal anything from you either, though that is supposed to be what they come out for…anyways, hit them with your sword or a beast to get the item or gold. This can be obtained in normal campaign, trials, and replaying challenges. I got this one halfway through the game. I also caused a glitch by mistake on Challenge 3 of Grave of the Turtle Titan. After getting to the bottom of the heal on your beats, attack a gnome that runs towards a corner with a tree, and just keep attacking. If done with pure luck, he will get stuck on it and not be able to go back underground. Keep hitting him and you will obtain TONS of gold if you get the yellow gnome, plus hit him a few good hundred times…Anyways that was just luck but I didn’t try twice. You can hit the same one over and over, hit different ones….anything! Even if they are grey and give nothing, it counts.

Complete the "Fiends Path" level with the "Battler's Blade" sword.These Expert achievements require you to beat each level and unlock them in challenge mode. It is greatly important that you realize it is not your regular sword. You must choose this while playing in challenge mode from the main screen. The sword is unlocked after obtaining a whopping 300 thousand loot. This will take you a LONG time if you play normal. I will list a way to make gold at the bottom of this guide. Once you gain the sword, you can pick it in challenge mode. The great thing about this sword, is that it kills everything in one hit. The bad? You die in one hit. This will take considerable amounts of time to memorize the levels, so that you avoid any traps, and know exactly what enemies will be spawning. If on a beast, you have to make sure you do not get knocked off or you will die! These are extremely difficult to get for the lousy amounts of achievements. You have to beat every challenge in a level to get them. You may indeed only get them in the next 3 levels, and I will explain why.
Complete the "Fiend's Pet" level with the "Battler's Blade" sword.This one is still tough but not nearly as tough as the others. You will be on the super beast provided in the start of the level. As long as you don’t get hit while knocking it down. You just cannot be knocked off or face death! You have to keep eating the enemies to avoid being thrown off your mount. It will then attack you if you are thrown off! This is no Disney ride…
Complete "The Last Titan" level with the "Battler's Blade" sword.This level has two phases of enemies that can be beaten fairly easily with the sword. It’s the next segment you have to worry about! The two big enemies called Firstborn and Secondborn provide the threat. The do not die in one hit, but topple over in one hit…so you still have to hit them into the pillars after killing the two green demons on the pillars, which causes the dragon to ignite them. It is still pretty tough but at least it is short.
Complete the "Death= Adder" level with the "Battler's Blade" sword.Oddly, this is the easiest BY FAR to get with the expert achievements. You pick the sword, but fight with the golden axe the whole time minus one little quick part where you get it taken away. Then you have the sword again….but while you have the axe, feel free to get punched around and slapped as much as you want! Well…without dying of course. I got this in one try, it was extremely easy.

Complete "Fiend's Pet" with an A+ ranking!See Death=Adder Class A+ for more info.
Complete "The Last Titan" with an A+ ranking!See Death=Adder Class A+ for more info.
Complete "Death=Adder" with an A+ ranking!You obtain ranks as you go through the game for the different challenges. Challenges are basically just a way the game divides the levels into segments. You get ranked for each one and then you get a total for the whole level. Your first run through will grant you probably all C’s if you are playing on normal. The way it works is you get bonuses based on loot obtained, time taken, dismemberments, difficulty, and damage taken. The only way to really get a higher ranking is to change to a higher difficulty. I will warn you that after you beat the game you will unlock the difficulty BRUTAL. It is like hard mode, except the game will not show you the colors of their attacks, meaning you will have to memorize each enemies moves to successfully judge if it is a dodge or a block! So insane! It seems if you beat a level while using the Battler sword, on ANY difficulty, you get an auto A+.
You should be able to get the Death=Adder A+ ranking the easiest. Just beat it with the Battler Sword since you do not actually use it much for the final boss fight. I got this and the Expert ranking on the same try.
Defeat 20 foes on the Abrax without getting dismounted!See Mirigore Master for more info.
Defeat 20 foes on the Lynth without getting dismounted!See Mirigore Master for more info.
Defeat 20 foes on the Krommath without getting dismounted!See Mirigore Master for more info.
Defeat 20 foes on the Mirigore without getting dismounted!This requires you to kill 20 enemies without being knocked off of it. You should really skip trying this on your own, but may obtain it anyways. While killing things. If you want to go the easy route, I would suggest just killing other non mounted beasts. You will come to a good few areas in the game that has two different beast mounts close to each other. Get on the beast you want the achievement for, and continue to kill it as it spawns. They didn’t get in rage mode at all, but there was one time every single mount did and I just had to be more careful. They will not fight back otherwise and be an easy slaughter! Kill 20 and the points are yours!
Complete "Fiend's Pet" without getting knocked off of Mighty Meg!This came to me on my first completion of the level. The level “Fiends Pet” is the third to the last level in the game. You will get on this mega beast after knocking it down. Run through and kill and eat everything in your path. The achievement says you cannot get knocked off. The game registers any enemy hitting you off of the beast. If you do not eat enough enemies, the beast will buck you off. This does not count as being knocked off! I wonder if it is glitched because in reality the true challenge is actually eating enough enemies and timing it right. I was never hit off by an actual monster because your beast stands too tall for them!
