First I want to say this is not as hard of an achievement as one might think. The levels aren’t really difficult once you learn them, and the biggest issue to the harder levels is mostly the length of the level. The longer the level the more likely you will mess up. You must complete all none custom levels to get this achievement. Master of the Custodial Arts is glitchy and might not unlock during your first playthrough. If that happens you will need to start over again on a new save. At the bottom of the guide is what I did differently to unlock the achievement. I’m posting a video of the final 8 levels for reference. Please watch if you are unsure how to complete a section or if you need a visual aid.


- I highly suggest using the d-pad for better control on your character. If you have a d-pad that can turn, make sure the corners are up. This will save you controllers (I went through two of them).

- Try every character and have one as a preference. If you have difficulties within a level, a character switch might help.

- Every character can beat every level and travel to every level on the world map. Some levels though are easier to beat with a specific character.

- If you can beat a level but need a better score, watch a few replays and see how others play it. If you cannot beat a level and need to see how to do it, research on YouTube.

- Turn on quick restart in the options menu. Once turned on all you need to do is hit the select button to restart the level instead of having to waste time by going to the pause menu.

- You will learn more about the game as you progress through the levels. The levels are set up differently but have the same formula to beat it.

- None of the levels, original and custom, require the spike jumping technique to complete unless using dustkid.

- The only advanced technique I use is the air dash jump. Phoenix from the dustforce community made a great video on YouTube explaining the advance techniques.

- Practice makes perfect. Do not attempt to double-S a level until you can complete it without messing up through the majority of the level.

- Try the custom levels. I learned a lot from playing them. I must note too that I found them way more fun and entertaining than the original levels.

- Pay attention to how you beat the ! levels. Yotta is a mash-up of all of them put together with the final ascent being the original part of the level.

- Yotta is not that hard of a level to beat. What may keep players from a double-S score is the pure length of the level. Once learned do not pause through the course of the level to re-situate yourself as you may mess up even more than just continuing the level. I highly suggest using dustman as he is the most balanced for the level.

- This achievement will take time to get. Do not think this can be completed in a couple of hours unless you are a really hardcore gamer or have played the game on a different system.

What I did differently on my second playthorugh with a new save to unlock Master of the Custodial Arts

- I did not watch a single replay, not even my own
- I did not access the leaderboards
- I did not play multiplayer, custom levels, or collected apples(on purpose)
- I did not complete a level unless I knew for certain it was going to be a double-S
- I only played a level by entering the level door, I did not use the book at the beginning of each hub to play a level
- I completed every level except yotta in one sitting
- If I paused the game while playing a level, I made sure to restart from the beginning
- I deleted and re-downloaded the game including the patch before starting my new save
- I do not know why this achievement glitched on me during the first playthrough, it can be one or all the reasons above
