  • Almost all of the following achievements are to be done within one playthrough, which means you’ll need at least 2 full playthroughs to complete all of the achievements
  • I will try as much as possible not to spoil the story or the important/surprising stuff of the game, so anyone can go through the guide at any stage of progression through the game
  • This guide isn’t a walkthrough, the point is not to tell you how to pass a certain room, but to tell you about the achievements, and the achievements only

  • All the monsters before the alien city. See “Daredevil
Just chilling Just chilling
Stand still for 60 seconds

See “Never Give Up” for more information.

This is pointless This is pointless

Never give up Never give up
Spend 5 minutes in a room before going to a never-before visited one

How to:

  • In order for this to work, the game must be running, on the foreground of your tasks and not paused. It can be done both in windowed and fullscreen mode


Easiest way to do it:

  • Go at the end of a room, near the exit (whether it is a door or just a screen change),
    open the steam overlay (Tab+Shift by default), make sure the game isn’t paused, and do something from there for at least 8 minutes, or go grab a snack
  • As soon as the “This is pointless” achievement pops up, go to the next room and “Never give up” should unlock
But how? But how?
Have 30 or more teleshots on the screen at once

How to:

Diplomat Diplomat
Talk to all the aliens in the game in one playthrough

Easiest way to do it:

  • Every single alien counts, including the Stone Alien, the Treemen and the Alien Guards. Grigori does not seem to count

How to:

  • Go sanic fast


Easiest way to do it:

  • See: “I always get nauseous after teleporting“, “Daredevil” and “Shortcut
  • Stay calm, and restart from the last checkpoint using “exit without saving” if you fail
  • There is no easiest way to do it, the best way to go is to know every single trick of the game


You have plenty enough time to do it !

I did way under 20 minutes, just by using what I learned from “I always get nauseous after teleporting” and “Shortcut“, and focusing a little bit šŸ˜€

Telejump Mania Telejump Mania
Jump after being teleported 5 times in less than 8 seconds

Easiest way to do it:

  • You can do this on almost any screen if you know how to jump just before being teleported
  • This is like learning how to bike, you just need to find your way to learn it and it’ll stay

Defeat Grigori without using the teleport gun

This is actually surprisingly easy to do even though it might take a few retries. It is necessary to know how to do this in order to get “Swiftest Success
It is not necessary to have the gauss gun upgrade to be doable

Easiest way to do it:

  • When he gets low, hit him in quick succession
  • Shoot 1 or 2 times then dodge his bullet, and shoot another 1 or 2 time to make him change side, repeat
  • It takes 3 hits to make Grigori change side, and you need to make him change side 4 times before being able to kill it
Daredevil Daredevil
Make it to the Alien City without touching any checkpoints

/!\ Doing “Daredevil” is mandatory to get the first core and the gauss gun upgrade, you just need to suicide once you obtained “Daredevil” and the gauss gun /!\

This achievement is actually not as hard as it looks !
It sure will take a lot of retries, but it took me only about 45 minutes by myself and without knowing of the “Shorcut“, so you’ll probably be able to do it much faster with a guide !

How to:

  • Go from the start of the game to the inside of the Alien City without activating any checkpoints


Easiest way to do it:

  • Turn “autosave” off in the options
  • If you ever touch a checkpoint or die, quit without saving and restart from the start
  • Make sure you know how to properly use the “Shortcut“, because it’s not only gonna save you time, but also a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ of dangerous place and checkpoints to not go through


Checkpoints to watchout for:

The next screen has a checkpoint on the first block, you need to jump from there in order to avoid it

There should be a gray block there, you need to jump over it from the right distance to be able to avoid the checkpoint near it

Hidden Achievement
Shortcut Shortcut
Find a way around the Treemen’s Domain

How to:

  • Jump up the little piece of terrain right before the entrance to the city


Easiest way to do it:

Once you land there jump to the far right once again and you should get the achievement

Find the Gauss Gun upgrade

How to:

  • Reach the super secret place where the upgrade is located
  • Obviously since this is an upgrade you need to already have obtained the gauss gun


Easiest way to do it:
In order to get it you’ll have to get the gauss gun without touching any checkpoints and suicide once you have it in order to respawn at the start. See “Daredevil

  • From Block Chompers, find a way up to the secret cliff on the left side

  • From the Secret cliff, telejump your way up to the upper right of the screen
