Achievement progress does not accumulate between games! You can’t just kill 5000 enemies in one game, then 5000 in another one, and get the 10000 achievement.
You can save and quit, that one doesn’t interrupt achievement progress.
But you have to realize that if you start a new game, everything resets to zero. Checkpoints count as a new game too, so they do not save achievement progress as well (except for the game state, which must be saved anyway: upgrades, pet levels, etc.).

Many achievements require you to be a good player. Information on how to play well and survive for many, many levels is outside the scope of this guide.

Smartbombtastic Smartbombtastic
Detonated 25 smartbombs in a single game

I think this achievement counts EMP SHOCK activations as well. In any case, if you play the game normally long enough, you will get this achievement. Wasting money and smartbombs is not a good option.

As a similar strategy with the dot achievements, there isn’t much point in grinding this early on. It should come naturally as you play the game and work toward the other achievements. Play the game for a very long time (i.e. until level 200 or so), and you will get these achievements. I’m quite sure that pet kills don’t count, so you have to shoot with the main droid.

100 dots 100 dots

You need to collect 1000 dots in total to get all the dot related achievements. This should come in time. Don’t waste too much time grinding this at the start.

You shouldn’t focus on this too early in the game. While playing keep it mind to collect the dots, but wait until you have progressed through the game to get other achievements before considering any grinding.

See “Commando” for more information.

Commando Commando
30 kills with a single grenade

Invest money into your ROCKET PET, because I’m pretty sure its rockets count as grenades. Play the game, if you’re lucky enough, it will get 30 kills in one shot eventually.

Alternatively, start a new game, where you upgrade GRENADES and don’t buy pets. Let enemies gather up and shoot a grenade at them.

Don’t let your droid or your pets get hit for 5 consecutive levels. Easy to do from a new game.

Max Shields Max Shields
Maximum shields

Fill all 10 SHIELDS slots. Yes, this is not a good idea for your success in the game, because it is a big waste of money, but you will have to do it for the achievement.
You will only get the achievement if you buy the last SHIELD and not pick up an EXTRA SHIELD.

Max Power Max Power
Maximum droid power

Buy the upgrades to get this to max power and unlock the achievmeents.

Max Shooty Pet Level Max Shooty Pet Level
Shooty pet levelled up to maximum

Invest money into your pets, play long enough for them to get 2000 kills. It is nice to buy PETS LEVEL UP as soon as possible and then avoid shooting to ensure some early levels for your PET.
The LASER PET gets levels the slowest in an average game, so you may have to buy more upgrades for it than the other pets, or even dedicate a separate game to that achievement, buying only the LASER PET.

Max Laser Pet Level Max Laser Pet Level

See “Tenacous D 30” for more information.

Tenacious D 30 Tenacious D 30
Drone survived 30 levels

Get to a point in the game (or load a checkpoint) where all 3 pets are close to being maxed, that would be after level 60. Obtain a drone. Don’t shoot for 30 levels and the drone will be completely safe.

Awesome Awesome
Awesome double three way bouncy gun

See “Ultimate” for more information.

Crazy Crazy
Double three way bouncy bezerk gun

See “Ultimate” for more information.

Ultimate Ultimate
Double three way bouncy max power rapid fire gun

Load up a checkpoint somewhere around level 81, gather the needed powerups on the screen, until you have something like on the screenshot:

 Ultimate Achievement

And then pick them all up.
I think it’s preferred to get all these achievements in the same attempt, because there is not much difference between them.
So you need to max DROID POWER and gather the following powerups: TWIN SHOT, 3-WAY, BOUNCY BULLETS, POWER BOOST, RAPID FIRE, BEZERK. Yes, it is difficult to avoid picking them up, and you will need many tries before you get lucky enough to get the full assortment of the powerups.

A difficult task is saving the powerups from nerf explosions. You should try to avoid shooting nerfroids (the enemies that drop a bomb on death). But if the bomb is there and it’s close to a powerup, you must do something. An easy way to get out of this is to activate a SMART BOMB. A much cheaper alternative is to get close enough to the bomb and eat a bullet to activate EMP SHOCK. Both of these will neutralize the bomb so it can’t damage powerups.

Challenge Perfect Challenge Perfect
Got 100% on a challenge stage

Shoot all spidroids in a challenge stage, without missing a single one. Best done from a new game. It is helpful to save powerups such as 3-WAY and BOUNCY BULLETS until this level.
Just stand in the middle and shoot. If you have a drone, position it somewhere close to you.

The Artful Dodger The Artful Dodger
Got 100% on a dodge stage

Dodge all nerfroids in a dodge stage. Best done from a level 11 checkpoint.
You actually lose points only if you lose a life or shoot a nerfroid. This means that pets are effective shields.
Try to tend towards the middle, obviously avoiding nerfroids. If you feel like you’re in danger, BOOST to a safe location and then try to return to the middle.

Assault Survivor Assault Survivor
Survived assault level without taking damage

Don’t lose a life in an assault stage. Best done from a new game (level 5).
Buy only DROID POWER. It is helpful to save powerups such as TWIN SHOT and RAPID FIRE until this level.
You must focus on avoiding the bullets, not on where you’re shooting. Just shoot somewhere, and when you feel like you’re more or less safe, aim at some baddies.

Drone Bullet Kills Drone Bullet Kills
Single drone shot down 100 enemy bullets

See “Drone Enemy Kills” for more information

Drone Enemy Kills Drone Enemy Kills
Single drone vanquished 250 enemies

Buy DRONE AI+, DRONE REPAIR, SCAN RANGE. Put a drone in the middle of the screen and let it do its thing. If the drone takes a lot of damage, pick it up and don’t shoot until the end of the level to make sure it’s safe. This means that you need quite good pets too. On the next level, if the drone has enough health, put it on the floor again and let it shoot.
This achievement comes down to keeping a drone alive for a long time, so information from the previous entry will be helpful.

1000 shots fired 1000 shots fired
Player has fired 1000 shots in a game

This will come naturally over time, but you will need to put quite a few hours into the game. See “100000 shots fired” for more information on a quick way to grind this.

Player has fired 10000 shots in a game

100000 shots fired 100000 shots fired
Player has fired 100000 shots in a game

Play the game for a very, very, very long time (i.e. until level 200 or so) and you will get all these achievements, if you keep shooting…
Alternatively, play the game until you find an enemy that doesn’t move at all. Be careful not to shoot it and kill all the other enemies.

Move slightly away from the enemy so that your pet is in the enemy’s line of fire. The pet will tank all the bullets (or you may find an enemy that doesn’t move and doesn’t shoot, which makes things easier) and you can just hold the left mouse button (or put something onto it and… do something, maybe sleep) and shoot at a wall for more than 3 hours…

Supervisory Position Supervisory Position
Beat a level without firing a single shot

Don’t shoot for an entire level. Easy to do with maxed pets. Best done after level 50.

Start a new game. Before entering the 2nd level buy 1 SMART BOMB. Avoid any enemies by running around them. Wait until enemies stop spawning. Use a SMART BOMB.

Healthy Diet Healthy Diet
Consumed 10 consecutive fruits

Pick up 10 fruit in a row, without missing a single one. Quite easy if done from a new game. SPEED BOOST will be helpful. If you take the time to get these in general, this will likely be an achievement that pops without having to try too hard.

Fruit Flatus Fruit Flatus
Detonated 10 bombfruits

Buy BOMB FRUIT and QUANTUM SHIFT. Instead of just picking up fruit, BOOST into them.

Vengeance Vengeance
Smartbombed 10 enemies with one blast

See “Salvation” for more information.

Redemption Redemption
Smartbombed 25 enemies with one blast

See “Salvation” for more information.

Salvation Salvation
Smartbombed 50 enemies with one blast

Load a checkpoint, it can be whatever you like, but the important thing is that you don’t have pets, especially the ROCKET PET.
Don’t shoot the enemies, let them gather up. Carefully dodge everything until it seems like there are 50 enemies on the screen. Use a SMART BOMB.

Take That! Take That!
EMP shocked 10 enemies in one blast

See “And This” for more information.

And That! And That!
EMP shocked 25 enemies in one blast

See “And This” for more information.

And This! And This!
EMP shocked 50 enemies in one blast

If you just play the game, you might eventually get this one. If you didn’t, well, look at the previous entry.
Buy EMP SHOCK, preferably upgrade it a bit. Let the enemies gather up, then eat a bullet to activate EMP SHOCK.

XR3iTurbonutterbastard XR3iTurbonutterbastard
Maxed turbo power and recharge

To get this achievement, you must first max BOOST CHARGE and then SPEED BOOST. That is, buy the last SPEED BOOST point when BOOST CHARGE is already maxed.

Unexpected Item In Bagging Area Unexpected Item In Bagging Area
Quantum-shifted through a boss

Start on one side of the boss, BOOST through it so that you end up on the other side of it. Best done from level 21 checkpoint (level 30).
QUANTUM SHIFT is obviously required. Put many points into SPEED BOOST so that it’s long enough.

His Master's Voice His Master’s Voice
Held one or more pets for 5 levels without dropping

See “Barbara Woodhouse” for more information.

Crufts Crufts
Held one or more pets for 10 levels without dropping

See “Barbara Woodhouse” for more information.

Barbara Woodhouse Barbara Woodhouse
Held one or more pets for 20 levels without dropping

Start a new game, get a pet at level 5. Never buy any pet-related upgrades. Put points mainly into QUANTUM SHIFT, BOOST CHARGE, DROID POWER, DOT SLURPER. And… be careful not to get hit for 20 levels (actually, the main droid is allowed to get hit; only the pet’s squeak indicates failure). To make your task easier, don’t pick up powerups until they are really needed. Don’t even attempt to play nerfroid levels properly; just shoot them all.
