    This achievment is purely luck based.

    Enter arcade mode and start playing.

    In this mode, there are three different kinds of power up. Frenzy, Double Points and Freeze.

    They look like candy corns, except different colours (Freeze= blue/white, Frenzy=Red/Yellow and Double Points = Yellow/Green)

    The hard part is getting all 3 powerups to appear within the same 5-10 seconds. The easy part is hitting them when they appear.

    I got this on roughly my 25th arcade game. I quite often got two at once, but never the third. All I can suggest is keep trying and eventually all three will spawn together.

    After trying many unsuccessful attempts at this, it finally happened by chance or design.

    Enter Arcade Mode and hope to get lucky. This achievement is somewhat luck based, but you can increase your chances by doing the following:

    The best advice I have is to wait for banana powerups, preferably Freeze (the light blue/grayish one) BEFORE you start slicing fruit, and wait until it is almost off the screen. This keeps your score low, and possibly makes powerups more frequent. Once Freeze is going, just keep a watchout for a second powerup. Wait until the freeze has nearly ended, then slice that banana powerup. This will lengthen the freeze time combined with the second powerup, and it gives you the best chance for that lucky third banana powerup to appear.

    I read the comments and other solutions before I tried my method listed here. It may not work for everyone, but after hours of frustration, hopefully this will help someone. :)

    Good luck, and happy slicing. FYI, it took me over 25K fruit sliced before the first Triple Stack ever happened. If this helped you, up me; if not, tell me so I can improve it. Remember patience, grasshopper...

    EDIT: Some gamers have also mentioned that waiting until the game is almost over may not increase your chances of getting all three, but that is what worked for me.

    Tip from Hamfam9598 - You should wait to slice the first banana powerup until it is almost off the screen. The other two you can slice right away when they appear.

    (Let me know if anything is unclear instead of neg-voting and I will edit this as needed)

    otaku1412I tried playing it legitimately and had no luck getting all 3 to show up. After a few tries waiting and not slicing any fruit, I was able to get all 3 in close proximity.

    BOYNTZINHAAfter an hour trying “normally” just waiting for a random spawn I tried doing what Dawryoon suggested and slices nothing until the first banana and really quickly afterwards the other two spawned. Another of my backlog cleared ( first achievement unlocked (a completion 9 years in the making).

    I was trying to use the strategy outlined by DAVID7741 and Daeryoon but I added a slight variation and it worked for me on my second attempt.

    When the arcade mode starts do not slice any fruit. Once you see the first power up banana on the screen wait to slice it until just before its ready to go off the screen. Once you slice that banana slice any and all fruit. Be careful not to slice any bombs. Hopefully the next two power up bananas will not be far behind and you will net the achievement.

    This one took me forever to finally get. I truly think the bananas are timed and the whole idea of waiting to slice that first banana as long as you can shortens the length of time between banana power ups.

    I hope this helps!

    The GlobalizerI think this is the best method. Bananas seem to spawn shortly after the beginning of a wave, and the game sends the next "wave" when the prior wave is cleared, so this maximizes the number of waves (and correspondingly, bananas) you can have while the power-up is in effect. When I got this I made sure to quickly clear out the fruit.
