    To get this achievement, it is recommended that you use a character that you have almost max stats on, to increase your chances.

    Make sure to select "Mall" on "Big Head Survival" mode. The goal is to reach the bottom a total of 3 times.

    Run 1 Speed! Try to do this run in under 40 seconds, using minimal unique tricks.
    Run 2 - Try doing this run fast as well, but take your time to do an extra grind, grab or gap/transfer.
    Run 3 - Points, Points & Speed. You need to try and do a few combos containing manuals, flip tricks and grabs, racking up a quick 5,000 points or more at a time. If you reach 40%-50% during this run, you want to start a combo and look for a jump.

    Make sure to grind the last staircase before you reset to the top so that you reset with a low percentage, and don't get caught outside without having just finished a combo.

    View my video for a full playthrough. At no point do I go over 70%!

    Moving quickly and finding a route that you're comfortable with is the key. It will probably take a few practice runs to find a path that suits you best. The end of the mall is the hardest part because the percentage counter continues while the level reloads, so make sure to have the counter low by then. I show myself getting the achievement in the video.

    OzzysShadyDiscoTony Starc, the achievement is kind of stupid... but you have to move along really quickly as well as doing combos. the tricks are more important in the 2nd and 3rd time through but, as stated in the video, speed is the key! Nice video, thanks!

    In addition to the other solutions,
    IMMEDIATLY at the start/respawn of the map
    turn around 180° and drop down.
    if you manage to land the right way (seems bit luck-based) you begin to roll down, and you skipped both quarters
    (saves ~ 10 seconds, according to most videos i watched).
    if you begin to push up the hill, obviously turn around again, still ~8 seconds saved...
    10sec * 3 = 30 seconds saved, which is a full growth-level you can skip, making it a lot easier.

    Hope its understandable, if not, or if you think i should add something,
    please leave a comment before voting negative, i'll try to explain better or make a video, thanks
