A guide for the steam achievements for Hyper Light Drifter
I didn’t see a guide like this so I decided to make one, but please note:
I have not gotten all the achivements.
If you know how to get an achivement that I don’t, I’d love to add it.
Thanks for looking!
Also self-explanatory. So simple, yet so difficult.
Pretty self explanatory.
Buy bombs here
Then find a group of enemies and throw a bomb at them.
Yes, I only got three there, but you get the idea. The idea being to throw bombs where the enemies actually are, unlike my preferred method.
A good spot to get this one is to the South
Take this elevator
Down the stairs
Into the next room
Thanks to rokcat and ForgottenCrowd for suggesting this spot, and rokcat again for giving directions.
Die 1000 times.
Thanks to Gabriel for this one!
Die in the very first area
I don’t know if you can get this one throughout the whole tutorial level, or if getting murdered by monsters counts. I just jumped off the ledge until I died.
If you miss getting this one at the beginning of the game, you can get back to this area later. Thanks to Linebeckable for verifying that you can get the achivement later as well!
Here’s how you get there:
Then just keep advancing, and bam.
To get this achievemnt, you only have to get 25 chain dashes.
Which is fortunate, because I’m awful at it. If you’re playing with a mouse and keyboard (like me) and are having a lot of trouble chaining dashes (like me), you can try changing dash to the Left Mouse Button. It made things a lot easier for me. You’re probably not going to need to use your sword in areas where you need to chain dash a lot (such as this one), clicking rhythmically is easier than hitting the keyboard for some people, and you can just change it back when you’re done.
Alternatively, in this particular case, and when you’re trying to get to 800 dashes, you might find Dolo’s idea really helpful.
Basically, instead of trying to click around the entire room, you can just put your mouse to one side and move back and forth by hitting one key.
That’s how I ended up getting this one, actually.
What it says on the tin.
I reccomend Steeper’s guide to find the ones you’re missing
After buying every single upgrade, if you have all the gearbits, you’ll have 6 and a half total credits/monies.
Collect all modules, keys, gear bits, tablets, guns, upgrades, and most of the outfits.
*Edit: Thanks to Llefty for supplying the things you don’t need to get, which are the black outfit you get from beating the challenge rooms, and the New Game+ outfit.
These are the tablets
You can check your progress in this room
Which you can get to by going to the tutorial level, and then going past where you pass out the first time.
Check “Opening Death” if you don’t know how to get back to the tutorial level.
*Note: Currently, you can’t get this achievement retroactively, ie you either have to start a new file and find them all, or start from an earlier file where you might not have found them all.
This is where the hoarde rooms are
As you can see, you need 12 keys to access it.
Like the name implies, you have to fight off hoardes of enemies in these rooms
There’s one for each direction, and once you beat all those, you unlock another room where you fight a mixture of enemies from all areas.
Once you beat that one, you get a rad outfit and the achievement (I’m assuming)
Beat the game on New Game+ (which, just to be thorough, you unlock by beating the game once).
What it says. I got this one retroactively by going to the menu and manually choosing a different weapon, but apparently that isn’t fool-proof.
