    To unlock this achievement, you must find every Silver Medal in Sonic, Shadow, and Silver's respective ACT and HUB areas, as well as the final episode, End of the World. This is the single most time consuming achievement in the game excluding Legend of Soleanna and Gold Medalist.

    The other solution listed here says that the medals make a noise when close. They do, yes, but they can be difficult to hear depending on other sounds present in the game. If you're going after this achievement without a video guide, you can rectify this by going to the in-game Options menu, turn the BGM off and the SFX up. This makes the medal chime much easier to hear.

    Also, try to defeat all of the enemies in a room when you're searching, as some medals only appear when they're all killed.

    If you plan to use a video guide, I recommend ShadnicK826's YouTube channel. He has video guides for every single medal in the game and goes through them in quickly and simply. A link of one of his videos is included in the bottom.

    I hope this helps you. Good luck!

    JotaroRaidoJust got this, and I don't think I ever could have without this guy's videos -- they're very easy to follow, good quality (except the first few Sonic ones), and sometimes show off amusing bugs in the game. :) Since I didn't go for these while playing through the main story, I ended up doing each stage as I was working on the S-rank, and these videos also gave me some good shortcuts and routes to use in going for those, too. I was able to S-rank all of Shadow and Silver's stages just using these routes, and I've got a whopping three S-ranks remaining for Sonic (though I may have to look up actual S-rank videos for them because of incredibly meager time bonuses).

    I just want to warn anyone going for this that it will pop as soon as you collect your last medal (and hang for a second, like this game likes to), but you need to finish that stage in order for them to save and earn your gold medal. I assume anyone going for this is going for the gold medals as well... :)

    Saint HarriWhoever voted negative, could you mind telling me why you did? I wouldn't mind improving this solution further.

    Mister BudsI have collected all the silver medals in Sonic, Shadow, and Silver's Act missions and town hubs and got no achievement. I have 130 for Sonic and 120 for both Shadow and Silver. Is this not correct?

    Saint HarriIt definitely should have unlocked after collecting the very last one. I've never heard of anyone having trouble unlocking the achievement before.

    Mister BudsHaving now finished the game, this solution fails to mention that there are ten more silver medals in The Last Episode- End of the World.
