    Ok this one is a bit misleading.

    Getting 15 Veteran Statuses isn't enough you have to get all 15 without exiting the game. You can exit to the menu but if you close the game it will reset your progress.

    The same goes for the achievements related to getting 3 stars on levels.

    This may seem hard but once you've finished the game and have some upgrades the first 15 levels are quite easy and only take a small bit of practice.

    The only bit you may have trouble with is the first Ogre Mech. For that use the beam, with a couple of upgrades it eats through Ogre's

    Arsenic 17Cool thanks. was it tested whether you can reload checkpoints if you dont get the veteran. like if you get soldier, reload and go for vet. then move on?

    HybridchldYeah you can reload, I had to reload a couple of them myself.

    El AchievenadorThis is still weird at how it unlocks, i dont think exiting to menu plays a part in it, i think its more to do with keeping the game in the background when your not playing and not turning your phone off at all...

    The way it unlocked for me was doing all veterans in a row like you explain, but for the life of me i couldnt get more than 2 style on the first mech boss so i just continued, I got another veteran the level after hoping it would pop the cheevo but it didnt. I then thought well i am going to have to start again but i thought i would grind out the last level boss for some more coin, so i went to the menu, played the last boss level, got a veteran, and pop, the veteran and style cheevo came up...

    HybridchldYeah I've retried it myself ans it seems you just need to keep the game running, I just haven't had a chance to update the solution. Done now though.

    DudumeisterI can confirm that all you have to do is keep the game running in the background. I've exited to the home screen, locked my phone, and exited to the main menu of the game and still got the achievement. Just make sure your phone doesn't die and hope that the game doesn't freeze.

    Nefarus FoxDoes anyone know if you can just play the first level and just reload it 15 times and beat it 15 times to get the achievement?

    BionicTriforceFuck this achievement. My game hasn't been able to stay on long enough for me to get this achievement, it keeps crashing and closing the game.

    x jjaldana 2 x^^ Same here. I tried the lock screen method which is used in Rayman Jungle Run to avoid it from crashing and it doesn't work. My phone crashes in the middle of the hangar bay area.

    LLboxedGreat solution!

    Not sure about the game crashing that other's reported I've never experienced a single crash on mine... .
