    Triggerheart Exelica - Perfect Play (Video Playthrough)

    Conditions to unlock the achievement

    Basically you have to complete the game on Normal Difficulty or higher.
    You need to accumulate enough gold through each level to unlock all forms of the bosses you fight at the end of each level.
    Also you need to 'No Miss' the whole game, in other words, do not die once.

    It also seems that the game had a late patch forcing default settings.
    I got to the end in a previous run reaching all conditions, but gave myself 5 starting bombs, yet it didn't unlock.
    So its now actually harder than it once was ...

    My video of my successful run unlocking this achievement is below.
    Hopefully it can be used as a guide for tactics and ideas to defeat the bosses.

    I used Crueltear, her anchor is the best for speed, can make all the difference.

    velho lobodomarI just did a perfect run and the only thing i changed from default settings was turning off the tutorial and changing the background, no achievement. Looks like you cant change a single setting from the defaults in order to unlock this, to anyone still concerned...

    vSully@Inferno: I'm replying years later, but clearly unlock percentages for X360 games are fubar because of how easy it was to cheat achievements via whatever methods people use.

    Take this, which is one of the hardest achievements on the 360:
    Deathsmiles (JP)Secret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Deathsmiles (JP) worth 672 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

    5.72% unlocks... right.

    Triggerheart ExelicaPerfect PlayThe Perfect Play achievement in Triggerheart Exelica worth 262 pointsDestroy all the bosses and complete the entire game without dying at Normal difficulty or higher.

    This achievement requires you to complete the game, while defeating every form of every Boss without ever getting hit. Some main tips for this:

    Tips and Strategies
    ° This MUST be done on default settings
    ° Use Crueltear for this. (Best anchor in the game)
    ° You can spam the pause button to scout for openings and dodge bullets easily.
    ° Use bombs to cheat death but use them sparingly, and destroy Faintear on Stage 1 and 3 since those fights count.
    ° You can use Stage Select from the Options menu to practice the stages without getting hit. This will do well in prepping you for the achievement.
    Perfect Play is arguably the most difficult achievement in the game. Furthermore, if you die even once you'll have to quit out and start over from Stage 1 again. You must also defeat all forms of all Bosses(including both Faintear fights) so be sure to get many score items or else you won't face all the forms of each boss. This achievement works similarly to "No Miss Clear" except you can't do it on EASY and you must defeat every Form of every Boss. Here are all the bosses and forms you must defeat as well as the points needed to face each form.

    Stage 1 Boss
    Form 1: 0-
    Form 2: 500-
    Form 3: 1000-
    Form 4: 2000-
    Form 5: 2500-
    Faintear: 3000-

    Stage 2 Boss
    Form 1: 0-
    Form 2: 1000-
    Form 3: 1500-
    Form 4: 2500-

    Stage 3 Boss
    Form 1: 0-
    Form 2: 2000-
    Form 3: 3000-
    Faintear: 3000-

    Stage 4 Boss
    Form 1: 0-
    Form 2: 1000-
    Form 3: 2000-
    Form 4: 3500-

    Stage 5 Boss
    Form 1: 0-
    Form 2: 0-

    Additional Note: Every time you defeat a form for a boss it will pause and make a noise as if shifting into new gears, once it starts a different type of offense that's how you know you're in it's next form. Make sure you defeat all forms! If you miss a form because you did not have enough points then the achievement will be voided. So for example if I'm facing the Stage 4 Boss, and I defeat its 3rd form while having 3200 points, it will explode and the stage will end instead of shifting into Form 4 because I did not meet the 3500 quota. Whenever this sort of thing occurs, your achievement will be voided and you will have to quit to main menu and start over from Stage 1.

    RatpoizenYou've added F Swans video even though he has his own guide (and video) lol?

    Zenn P@Ratpoizen This solution was posted years before Swan's. He messaged me about the video and I added it to the guide. Afterward, Swan posted his own solution.
