This achievement is for collecting all upgrade chips in the game as either Ares or Tarus. Multiple runs are needed on most levels in order to aquire all upgrades, as you don't have all necessary abilities/upgrades yet on your first playthrough. Upgrade chips are fairly easy to find, especially since you can check level select to see in which levels you are still missing upgrades. Nevertheless, a missing collectable you can't find is very frustrating and a guide might comfort some gamers enough to purchase the game.

This guide was originally written for while playing as Ares. Since Tarus as different abilities, he can get some collectables before Ares would be able to obtain them. Concerning upgrade chips, the only difference is that Tarus can get the Fusion Form upgrade on stage 7 without having to replay stage 1 first.

Below is a list of weapons and abilities with the location for each tier. For a more specific location of the upgrade chips, please refer to my collectable guide found in the "Bookworm" achievement guide for collecting all data cubes.
