Comments
  • I forget where you get the rocket.
  • I think you had to get the S rank ending to unlock the Rocket Launcher...probably why it's 150G
  • Its just as DOA Rose said. To get an S rank you have to complete the game without saving, dying & using first aid sprays in under 3hrs. I did it on the Dreamcast & Gamecube versions it should be the same on this version.
  • @3 I think you need to beat it in under 4:30 not 3 hours! I don't think I have the skill to do this...
  • Hmmmm, really easy list then a really hard achievement, oh well.
  • LIKEEE! I was hoping for some hard achievements for the hardcore Resident Evil fan/player.
  • Oh boy, I was afraid they were gonna put that Rocket Launcher as an Achievement. Old wound coming back.
  • Note: Obtaining the R.L. requires you to beat the game within an A rank, and if it was either a time of 3:30 or 4:30 (can't remember the time limit), plus without the use of 1st aid sprays, and no saves. (The save at the end of the halfway point, where you beat the Tyrant a 2nd time does not count as a true save.)
  • Fuck......Single Sitting, no damage (basically) speed run on hard. Capcom really used this as a FUCK YOU to people eh?
  • Ouch. I was scrolling through the list ┬┤story-based, story-based, story-based... :D And then all of the sudden this. D: But it will be fun, I hope. XD
  • Not too bad. The old Resident Evil games could be beat in 6-8 hours and that was exploring everything. A speed run isn't that hard. Just run from most enemies
  • cant you just get the linear launcher to help get this achievement?
  • I think you can unlock infinite ammo weapons in earlier playthrough and then use them to attempt this. You'll save tons of time if you no longer have to hunt for ammo/weapons and can just spray n pray with the double auto-pistols at the bosses aside from the tyrant which needs like 10 explosive bolts to die. I'm just worried about a certain boss who has a giant axe that can one-hit kill you if you mess up running away from him. He always gets me the first time I play through CV again only this time it won't be a simple save reload but about an hour and a half of re-playing the campaign.
  • @ 13 There is a way you can avoid damage from him if you circle around the Axe monster first, and then run like hell towards the gate.
  • @14 That is what I did the very first time I played CV
  • Wow! Beating the game without saving. I hope I can do it on easy mode.
  • "easy mode?" LOL! Theres no easy mode in old school RE! I could be wrong though, I've only played 0, 1, a few seconds of 2, 4, and 5
  • Never played the old REs but hopefully it won't be too challenging if I've got 1400 in resi 5.
  • just have to say this, i really hate people who comment on achievement lists before the game is out. i expect to look at comments for help on the achievement. NOT people moaning or saying how hard/easy it is. Oh, the irony of me posting on this myself!
  • to avoid dmg form the axe boss jsut circle him a few times then run to gate, and its its A grade tehres no S grade u need over 10k points to get A rank u must also give the black man at the start of the game the antitoxin and you must save Steve quickly when he takes the golden guns. Also you must finish the game within 5 hours. this was on the dreamcast.
  • i remember i escaped rockfort island with claire in under an hour so this is a fairly short game, should be fine. and i've been playing resi 2 recently and have been getting A's so bring it bitch
  • 'no first aid sprays' - are herbs/mixed herbs ok? or do you not get those in veronica?
  • Complete the main game of Code Veronica with an "A" Ranking to earn the Rocket Launcher. To do this, you must not use First Aid Spray, not save your game, not retry, save Steve from the Luger room quickly, give the Medicine to your jailer Rodrigo... and finish in under four hours, thirty minutes. Then, when you begin another game, the Launcher will be available from the first Item Box you run across.
  • The nice thing about this is that the game has been out for a long time, and people have been doing speed runs on these forever... and documenting how. GameFAQ.com is going to be a excellent place to get info on exactly how to do this achievement on day one.
  • Make sure you don't get poisoned by a particular boss as well later in the game, or you'll have to waste time getting an antidote for Claire when playing Chris' Scenario.
  • #23 are you out of your dam mind thats insane i doubt many people are gonna be able to do that including me.
  • Just to clarify everyone about getting this achievement, here is the requirements... "Unlock Rocket Launcher" Complete the main game of Code Veronica X with an "A" Ranking to earn the Rocket Launcher. To do this, you must not use First Aid Spray, not save your game, not retry, save Steve from the Luger room quickly, give the Medicine to your jailer Rodrigo and finish in under four hours, thirty minutes. Then, when you begin another game, the Launcher will be available from the first Item Box you run across.
  • @18 you cant compare the old style RE's to the new style. i cant think of 1 time in RE5 where i didn't have ammo to spare and i was not holding any back. these games you can blow your ammo in a matter of minutes and you wont find stacks of them in the next room
  • I own the Japanese version so I can select three difficulties: Very Easy, Easy and Normal (in fact it should be called Hard). Does anyone know whether I can do the speed run on Very Easy and still get the Rocket Launcher. Some people might ask me why I wouldn't try it out myself. The truth is I am not very inclined to attempt the two "F**K YOU" achievements from day one. I need suggestions, please.
  • God this is going to fucking suck and be so fucking fun at the same time O_0
  • No one is being clear on this, fuck if i know its been years. But are herbs allowed? Mixing etc... Can u heal urself just NOT with sprays? And does pausing take Away from time?
  • - No Saves (Exception: Free Save given halfway in the game, when switching to Antarctica) - No First Aid Sprays (Herbs are allowed!) - No Deaths - Finish under 4 hours and 30 minutes - Save Steve from the Luger Room. (Choose C and E for the solution of the Puzzle) - Give Hemostatic Medicine to Rodrigo You can't pause the Game, you have to play it in one go. The only time you get a chance for a break is during the Free Save part, where you can just turn the Game off and Load later.
  • u cant pause either? screw this thats just waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy too intence for me lol cant pause what kind of jerk puts these things in the game? Im sure someone will get it, but they would have to be a freak with no life and i still cant belev u cant pause what if i have to go to the bathroom or in hungrey becuz i want to live thats what ill loose not worth it.
  • Props to neostraycat for being nerd enuff to 1000 this not even a day after release
  • no saves. under 4:30 hours. i dont think herbs or first aid affects the score. i forget havent played this game since dreamcast
  • #33 Lmao Go back to playing Mario you unskilled cunt, know what the true meaning of Resident Evil is lol. Anyways im just gunna attempt this on a 2nd playthrough so i know were im going etc ^^
  • This is gonna be fun :D
  • msg 2 all ppl i need friends that play res and is gonna get res O.R.C add me as u see my tag = #
  • My old guide book states that the game has to be completed in 4.29.59.99 or less. Just letting the one person out there who completes it a second later know that. Also skip all cut scenes as they do count towards running time.
  • DOA that's SS rank not S
  • No Saves Except after Tyrant 2nd battle, theres an old (cd switch) free save. No First Aid Sprays... use all the herbs you want. Beat the game in under 4 hours 30 minutes. Save Steve QUICKLY, Give Rodrigo the Hemostatic Medicine (Allows Clair Lockpick). No Retry's... This really sucks due to all the instant kills that can happen at the end of the game. Tips... Stone slab crystal ball puzzle (Dont try to run in, just walk in, drop crystal (cutscene with stone rising) walk in right after and pick up the card, dont run just walk in and pick up...running causes mistakes. 2nd Tip - Make sure once you hit self destruct, you have a shotgun/handgun/magnum equipped and loaded, Veronica tries to 1 hit clair...and if your not properly loaded you'll die cheaply 3rd Tip - Acid rounds will ROC
  • 3rd Tip - Acid rounds will ROCK Sweepers (Vicious Red Hunters) 4th Tip - On fighting steve... If your a real Re player you'll have 2 full heals ready on the 2nd clair part... as long as you quick turn, run and heal after he hits you, 2 full heals will do it. 5th Tip - DO NOT forget to have clair UNLOCK the duralium case with magnum bullets in it... makes the last fight much much easier. 6th Tip - You CAN NOT PAUSE, be prepared to sit 2 hours uninterupted for the first and second half of the game. 7th Tip - The Tyrant fight in the plane Collect all 3 Bow Gun powders, use all 30 shots on him at the start, turn hit button..bye bye tyrant...not muss no fuss.
  • Playing 123 and Code veronica really reminds me how badly they screwed us with RE 4 and 5... They coulda called those games Parasite Madness, took out Leon Kennedy's/Chris Redfields names and kept the PROPER SURVIVAL HORROR RESIDENT EVILS...not these shooter clone peices of garbage there putting out today.
  • RE5 TOTALLY destoryed an epic bad guy ... and turned wesker into a friggin knob. Ouroboros... Gimme a break you lazy DEVELOPERS... Black smog monster is as bad or worse as the leech man from RE 0... Research your prior games... RE went from awesome almost realistic science terror to everyone being a magical leech monster capable of growing 100-1000 times there normal size.... what a bunch of freaking IDIOTS.
  • this is stupid. it would be easy if you could pause, that way you could pause and watch a video to make sure you doing it exactley right, no way i will get this, i will stick with the 850
  • I got it lastnight after Being CRUSHED by the slab falling down... LAME and after Alexia DKilling me in the final battle... funny thing is I retry'd and with the same ammount of ammo I killed her the second time... this game DID NOT want me to beat it. But 3rd time was the charm. Getting all chievs in RE4 is a cakewalk compared to this. I have bested EVERY SINGLE RE Ever Now. Waiting for 0,1,2,3 to come out now....
  • FUCK YOU if you can't Pause, forget about it...
  • I just completed the game yesturday! Now 1000/1000G I love it!
  • @33 That's RE LOL. That achievement is hardcore, just like it's supposed to be. If you're not pro enough to get the achievement then you're just not good enough. You gotta achieve the achievement. This is not CoD where you get all achievements on the first playthrough!
  • Not any harder than beating Dead Space 2 on Hardcore or surviving 7 Days on Dead Rising Side Note: @AngerOfTheLands... holy shit... seriously?
  • @49 Really? While I dont particularly like CoD that was a terrible example to use. The CoD games are NOT just one run through and get 1000g games at all. All CoDs require you to complete them on Veteran and that is not an easy task in any of them. Its not impossible. Ive done it in all of them. It just takes SKILL much like this achievement :)
  • can you unlock easy and very easy in the US version?
  • so u have to complete the game in 3hrs or less
  • Operation Racoon City
  • In code veronica X you CANNOT change the difficulty level. Also, the achievement requires you to go through the entire game without dying under 3 1/2 or 4 1/2 hours I can't remember. The only save you get to use is the free save the game gives you after defeating the tyrant on the plane. (When you are flying to the arctic base) At that point you can turn off your xbox and take a break. If you die after that save, you can redo it as many times as you need starting from that save point. Finally, for all you people who are trying to compare these achievements to the Resident Evil 4 achievements... Are you kidding me? RE 4 achievements were a cake walk compared to these!
  • @13: I think you're confused between RE:CVX and REmake. There's no unlimited ammo in RE:CSX except for the rocket launcher.
  • i have done this on the ps2 and the dreamcast ,it's not that hard if you know what your doing. you have to do the same on rez 1,2 & 3. just learn if you played it a few times you should know what monsters are were and what to kill them with .plus you don't have to shoot everything you see... good luck ppl.
  • And here I thought they were all story-related achievements...
  • This little gem sounds similar to the 'Beat the game on hardcore difficulty' achievement in Dead Space 2. Seriously??? O,O
  • I remember doing this for PS2. Is it as hard on xbox as it was on ps2? Just The tips for ps2 was. 1. Remembering map/event layouts. 2. No deaths 3. Saveing ammo 4. Running away from enemies when possible.
  • Shit! I'll pass on this achievment! I got 2 kids & they barely let me play games at all! LOL!
  • Wooooooooooooohooooooooooo! I just did it about 10 minutes ago! Took a breather to catch my breath :D I got all achievements for RE Code Veronica X HD! Man it was bada**! Anyone wants any advice on how to get any or all achievements for RE Code Veronica then send me a message and we'll party chat and discuss where any of you are stuck at. :) GT: Prettiest EVER XD
  • Completed it last night. Took my time in part one and collected lots of ammo. In part two I just ran n shot away, getting the three machine guns certainly helped. Once you remember where to go and where the herbs are it's not as hard as you first think. So glad to get that last achievement. My life is now complete.......lol

  • Is there a particular running path I should use to avoid the Gulp Worm as Chris? I'm trying to kill it using the Assault Rifle but I never have the chance as it ALWAYS surfaces at my feet and knocks me over no matter how much I run around. Have to restart from the plane for the 5th time now.
  • Well,I gotta get it eventually,might as well read all these comments for advice! lol I love this game a lot,my 1st play through was fun and I kinda just burned through enemies,died like twice and I was just messing around and having fun with this game.If I just play this seriously then it shouldn't be too hard,I think it was just a little hard for me the 1st time because I didn't exactly know what to do on some parts. I also love the people who compare RE4 to Big Heaping Pile of Shit 5,the only thing that was the same about those 2 was 3rd person gameplay,everything else was different.While I agree RE4 in Eurotrash Europe got a little annoying,and maybe Las Plagas wasn't exactly zombies,I still believe that that game was awesome.I mean it was pretty much the same (besides those 2 things I
  • mentioned) as all of the originals,it had puzzles which confused the crap outta me! On Pro mode it was freaking hard and you didn't get infinite ammo like you did for RE5,you couldn't just blast through enemies and expect ammo in the next room like RE5,they made it challenging on a lot of parts,unlike RE5.I just really don't see how people can say RE4 and RE5 are the same! There are still parts in RE4 that get me startled like the old REs,like regenerators for instance,the damn darkness in the game,the creepy music,it's all the same in RE1,2,3,CV,4.When I played through RE5 I was soooooooooo bored and Sheva is most worthless piece of crap RE character that EVER existed,they made Chris a character that's boring and is a big mass of nothing with like,no emotion,the whole RE5 game is just tra
  • trash.You could even play multiplayer and take cover behind walls,Jill is blonde now who makes stupid noises when she's controlled by something on her chest,AH I could go on about how terrible 5 was! It's an action game with some RE characters in it,period.Hopefully RE6 isn't AS shitty as RE5,still looks dumb because you can move and shoot,the characters are all ugly as crap,do like the zombie thing though,and a lot of the enemies it shows does look like classic awesome/creepy/scary zombies like the originals,partner system should completely vanish because it's stupid as hell (RE4 has an exception) MOVING AND SHOOTING is the BIGGEST AMOUNT of (please excuse my language) bullSHIT that should absolutely NEVERRR EVERR be in a RE game,it completely takes away from the Survival Horror and auto
  • automatically becomes 3rd person shooter or action.Man they better do good things in RE6,it's already starting to look really bad for us original RE players.What is up with Capcom being like,the worst game company all of a sudden,everything they're making is crap nowadays! And Game Informer's all like "Oh they look to turn it around with blah blah blah" What turnaround? EVERYTHING they're doing is completely stupid nowadays and with stuff they're coming out with soon,it looks like the same crap they've been making the past few years! Man I really do pray for Capcom,they're screwing themselves.Good luck! lol
  • Holy crap did I post book worth of stuff lol
  • bS. 5 is not trash. The new direction the game went towards is A bot unconventional, but its still definitely an RE game. All the elements Are there except for the puzzles I agree I wish 5 had some, because It has way more potential. That said, its still a great game. Also Sheva Is awesome. And oh yes, Fuck you
  • Any general tips for a good way to get an S ranking without multiple playthroughs
  • 36# i came back just to see how ppl got this and u calling me a cunt? wow really just becuz i think its hard doesnt mean im a cunt. Dam man you got some problems calling ppl names when u dont even know them, notice i didnt make fun of u cuz im much more mature then that.
  • This might sound stupid but can you save after the tyrant fight on the plane or if you die do you go back to after the plane fight?
  • @74 Well, when you finish Tyrant in the plane you get later a free save, which does not count. If you die, you are hella screwed 'cause you need to start over
  • Anyone know if you die in the second half, can you just dashboard and restart from the half save point, would the achievement still count or do I have to start from scratch? feedback would be appreciated.
  • I think if you die after the "free save" you can "Dashboard" and try again because the game doesn't "saves" anything when you do that.
  • When you know where everything is, getting a A rank is a walk in the park. Watch speed run "themixedherb" and do what he does. Easily complete the game 2 hours 20 minutes. Avoid almost everything except some hunters, show them a acid round to be safe as dodging them is sometimes a bad move. Most of the bosses can be avoided and alexia is easy with the grenade launcher. Only carry the grenade launcher with acid rounds with chris. Save the grenade rounds for alexia. That's my tip.
  • im not if pausing the game on here counts towards your time because there were times when i had the game paused for HOURS at a time. i had the game paused for a good 4 hours one time, but my total time was only 6 hrs and 40min.
  • I wonder if that save that doesn't count, if I can put a RPG and infinite herbs in my inventory and make the game go by a whole lot faster. My first run is 6hrs without ever playing it. Curious to what my 2nd will be.
  • ridiculas achievment
  • Another one of them "Near Impossible" Acheivements -__-
  • This achievement is a pain in the ass. I've died 5 times at Nosferatu now. Thank god for the halfway save, or this would acctually be impossible.
  • If you skip cutscenes and remember what to do in each location you'll get it. I obtain it in 3 hours and 59 mins.
  • i just got this i died 3 times and had to keep starting over from the free save you get the hardest things for me wasd the nosferatu fight and the tyrants outside the door in the military base you can kill the tyrants with acid rounds 2 of them is you hit them up close theuy die in one hit and as far as the nosferatu fight its very easy if you save at least 60% ammo in the mp100s hit him with all the sniper rifle rounds anywhere it will do more damage if you hit him in the heart be careful though because he will knock you off he did it to me twice after you unload the sniper rounds empty all the ammo from the mp100s into and he will die it easy but you have to be careful if you dont know the game very well and need help with doijn the a rank run follow this guide i used it for chris' part
  • Never bothered speed running CV. Just dont like it enough. Lol at the true resident evil and all the crap about how bad the new games are. Just lol.
  • First it was a Sega Dreamcast Game. God know how much i hate Sega when it comes to game. It's always inferior compared to PS or Xbox and even Nintendo. As an example compared RE to House of the Dead. HotD suck in gameplay, story and anything else !!!!
  • just got this thanks to speed run by themixedherb on youtube highly recommended for this one :D
  • I got so mad I played RE CV all morning and I was on the last part where u have to kill alexia form 2 and those little crawling things screwed me up and it wouldn't let me pause the game to heal and I would of got the achievement too cuz I beat the game in 3 hrs and 46 min I didn't use any first aid spray and quickly saved stevealso grabbed every single file and an easy way to not use any first aid spray there is glitch u can look up to have an infinate amount of healing items whether it is a green herb or a first aid spray its really easy to do it
  • I really love this game! But this achievement seem like a big challenge, even for a big fan. well, All i can say is, Challenge accepted!
  • Challenge accepted!!!!
  • Post 2
  • Got this done last year I'm just checking this forum to see how many people are crying over this one. Seriously guys its not hard I was able to do this on the dreamcast when I was 12. These days we have youtube so go on the internet and watch how the real resident evil pros play, you fools. *takes home "The Smug Prick" trophy award home*
