How to unlock the Germaphobe achievement

  • 47 2 14
    For this achievement, I recommend that you have the following...

    Nerd Repellant (gadget)-this will rid the level of any nerds making them a non issue

    Freeze-O-Matic (gadget)-if you happen to die really close to the 2km goal for this achievement, this perk will have you sliding an extra few meters

    750 meter head start (consumable)-most of the time the 750 meter head start will cause you to go that far while not collecting any coins. I found that every time I used the 1500 meter head start, I would be collecting coins which you need to avoid for this achievement

    Final Blast (consumable)-again, good if you need an extra push to the 2km, but there is a chance that this will cause you collide with coins

    Revive (consumable)-if after using all of the above items you are still short of the goal, use this to get another life and hopefully get the achievement

    You can use machines during your run--thanks to xPut Name Herex and grex9101 for confirming this.

    Hamfam9598Each time I used either head start, I ended up collecting coins. I personally found the turbo booster and nerd repellant to work best for me.

    SayoricidalDoes this have to be done all in one run?

    TwitchyComicI know that I'm pretty late to the party, but I am attempting to finish this game up right now (only need this and RAD) and I have found that using a vehicle made me collect coins. I got the little stomper, and encountered some coins that were low enough that I collected them while running on the ground. Just wanted to add my two-cents and possibly help someone in the future.

    Use head-starts.

    I originally tested this on the WP version of this game and found that most of the time you will not hit any coins when using a head start. Leaving you only 1250m left to avoid coins/tokens. I've just used my own method to do this achievement on my tablet and I only needed to spend 6000 coins on 2x 5pack of head starts. Finally travelling 2256m without hitting anything.

    For gadgets i was using the nerd-repellent to stop the scientists appearing, and i would advise the gravity belt as the second. When you stop blasting your jetpack this will make you drop back to the ground faster, making it easier to avoid zappers/tokens.

    Finally i advise to avoid vehicles. Not only does it make more coins appear, they can be trickier to avoid depending on the vehicle.

    Hope this helps,

    Baron.
