    While this may seem like an incredibly difficult achievement at first glance realistically when you understand what sections the game is actually timing you on it suddenly becomes very doable. Also the fact it does not need to be done in a single run, meaning you can go back and improve on your times if necessary helps greatly. There are a number of game mechanics which do not count negatively towards your timer which include:

    - Time spent watching your turn e.g. after throwing a grenade, watching worms die.
    - Cutscenes
    - Time spent charging and aiming shots.
    - Aiming more specialised weapons such as the Boggy B

    Essentially the only major mechanics in the game your timed for involve moving around the map i.e. walking, jumping, jetpacks, ropes etc.

    It is also worth noting you can change the class of worm you use on the level by pressing up on the level select screen and pressing A on the slot of the worm you want to change the class to cycle through the four classes, which are:

    - Soldier: Average Speed, Allows you to detonate grenades at any time using A.
    - Scout: High Speed, Can jump greater distances and falls further without taking damage.
    - Heavy: Slow Speed, Damage Boost
    - Scientist: No need to use

    With all this in mind please see the video below for a walkthrough of each level. In the run in the video I managed to to complete all levels in roughly just under 6mins even with slightly messing up the final two levels so there is room to make occassional mistakes but if you are following what i'm doing as closely as possible you should be able to get this done with little issue.

    This is my first attempt at a solution on the site so feel free to let me know if theres anything you think I should add/change.

    CrAzEdCaNuCk18Thanks for posting your times shadowfox, they seem far more realistic to aim for. I was attempting to match the video times but it is near impossible unless you get a lucky bounce.

    If you can get those times repeatedly though Craig.. Hats off to you!toast that would be amazing!

    FINezulaahgreg must have encountered some other kind of a glitch, or it might have been patched or something... because i just did all the worm ops in offline mode except one, for which i had a time on the leaderboards from playing it online. i fully quit the game, went back online, and when i went to see the times, it didnt say --:-- but instead the game somehow did have all my times from playing in OFFLINE! and i even saw that "results cant be uploaded" window after every mission >_< i only got the "complete all worm ops" ach when i booted up the game in online mode. if someone else still wants to give this trick a go, maybe deleting save games might be the solution somehow... but that might just end up in a total loss of data if its not saved online in the cloud, and you remove the ONLY excisting save from your HDD :/

    PS. oh and great guide dude! will defo need this, cos i love time runs, and i was gonna do this legit anyways after trying the trick regardless of it working :P

    count023Took just a little bit of practice on a few levels, but these were my final times for the 8 levels basically on a first-run through each of them:

    WW 28.28
    BB 44.48
    TT 43.32
    FF 52.04
    JJ 42.70
    PP 4.02
    GG 59.69
    MM 74.74
    SS 50.72
    RR 61.01

    Only level i restarted on really was the Grenadier one when i failed to get that first bounce.

    Freedumb0612I just had the exact same thing as AHGreg happen to me. I can't say it was deserved, but it's unlocked

    VividFairySo apparently this is my rarest achievement (or at least the highest TA score), but I absolutely don't remember getting this achievement or it being super hard. I must have really lucked out or something lol
