    The Turbo Tunnel Infinite can be found in the main Rare Replay menu, among the Battletoads snapshots. Normally you only have to last 45 seconds to beat the snapshot, but for this you have to go to about 2:15 - 2:20, which is the point where the tunnel loops, as in it repeats from the beginning again.

    There's nothing new to this as the tunnel is set up in the exact same way as in the main Battletoads game, so if you've ever beaten that stage of the game, you'll know what to expect. The only problem is that you have to do it without crashing, but it mostly comes down to memorization of obstacles, and getting a bit lucky with the ending zigzag part. For ramps, all you have to do is hit them, no need to press any buttons. For hurdles, make sure you jump way before they appear on screen, especially when there are several in a row, and hold right in midair to clear them as fast as possible.

    Good luck!

    thanatos8285This is possible to cheese with a turbo controller. When you stream your game to your PC, you can plug controllers into your PC to use with the game that the X1 wouldn't normally accept. I had to remap the start button to one of the regular buttons using a third party program because I couldn't set the start button to turbo, but once I did that, easy to just activate slow-mo and cheese that achievement that way. Still not like I could knock it out in one go but it was much quicker than the weeks this would've taken otherwise.

    Of course, that being said, by the time I actually beat it, I was doing everything but the last zigzag in real time without slow-mo. It's more of a practice aid than anything once it's all said and done.

    SquigDON'T GIVE UP! I spent a full WEEK attempting this stupid thing and FINALLY GOT IT. I checked cheesing methods, I checked everything. Do your best, practice, and the impossible CAN be done!

    I have seen a few how to beat the turbo tunnel videos and some people play differently than others so here is my take on it.

    One thing I hear people say is they talk about hold forward as soon as you jump or other stuff like that. Once you are in the air from a Ramp FOR THE LOVE OF TOADS DO NOT TOUCH THE D-PAD YOU WILL LAND SAFELY.

    The Part with the flashing ! and you have to manually jump YOU ONLY JUMP. NO D-PAD, NO ANALOG STICK AND TO BE CLEAR NO MOVEMENT WHATSOEVER. Just let it happen.


    The final moment of the tunnel I don't even look at the walls. I focus on my Toads Shadow. The pattern doesn't change you just have to make sure you are quick. Like hella quick.


    Once you beat this you'll see the Turbo Tunnel isn't so bad the the TRUE NIGHTMARE IS STAGE 11! I mean have you played Stage 11??? What the **** are they freaking kidding me with frame perfect turns??? ARGH! That's the true rager and not the Turbo Tunnel. Just practice and NEVER move after a ramp!

    BRANIAC1972Thanks for the help(and patience). I am trying,trying,trying to get this.Practice makes perfect I guess! I think you are right though: you have to avoid staying close to the middle, because you get creamed every time. My best runs are when I swing higher and lower.

    BRANIAC1972Got it!!!!!!!!Practiced in the main game and got through it with swinging up and down more.I did it once and thought, 'what the hell, let's give it a go'.
    Got it first time lol.The interesting thing is that I did the zig zags and then the 3 quick jumps but as I hit the checkpoint I paused because I wanted to watch your videos on the final bit.As I was looking it up, still paused the achievement popped- weird!!! My time is 2.13.82
    .Out it of spite I carried on to clear the last bit so I had a clear conscience about getting the achievement. Fluffed the 1st jump on the second lap and don't care! Thanks for all your help - if I could double upvote I would!

    This achievement isnt as tough as its ratio says it is or at least that was the case for me. I got it in less than 2 hours and probably 20 minutes of that was spent trying to record it.

    I'll be referring to some sections of tips and strategies based on the in-game time found in a rectangular box at the right center of the screen in my video.

    Tips: #1 Stay always near the far left of the screen except for 1 spot where the 4 zig zaggy spaceship creatures are. At this spot youll need to stay near the top of the screen and jump over the first two then after the others pass make your way back to the left of the screen.

    #2 I prefered to use the D-pad for controls, it seems more accurate a smaller group of people seemingly prefer to use the Joystick. Use whichever works good for you.

    #3 After the 1st checkpoint it starts to get mildly tough just remember to time your jumps right.

    #4 [55 Second Mark] Up,Down,Up,Down... Pause...Up,Down,Up,Down...followed by a triple jump. This part was the toughest part of it all for me so get into your rythm and watch your shadow.

    #5 [1:10 Second Mark] Stay Bottom until the 2nd rat flies by, then go up. Right after he drops his little wall piece youll have a jump, stay top after the jump. Then when the 4th rat drops the wall piece up top, swing down to advoid it then go center and jump to reach the airborn ramp. When you land you'll have a quick jump. Then stay all the way top to avoid the Center wall (thats the sneakiest wall in the game).

    #6 [1:30 Second Mark] Let your character do the 3 jumps automatically just stay center. Then double jump and the sneaky bottom ramp.

    #7 [1:45 Second Mark] Stay top and do the 1 long jump ovef the 2 zig zaggy spaceship creatures then advance forward to avoid the other 2. After that revert back to your position on the far left of the screen.

    #8 On the super fast walls just get into a rythm of going up and down. WATCH YOUR SHADOW. I prefered using the D-pad but my brother who got this achievement the same day that i did prefered using the Joystick. Eitherway just do your rythm, theres very small room for error here.

    #9 [ 2:20 Second Mark] This is the end of the Loop. Congrats if youve made it this far!!! Your achievement should pop shortly. You can keep on going to improve your leaderboard score until you crash.

    This guide is now complete, if you have any questions then please feel free to comment or send me a message and i shall get back to you in a timely manner. :) enjoy!

    MegaManSurvivesYeah im sorry your having trouble with it man but theres no easy way to do this part. I listed 2 ways i knew of and both take skill/luck. Part of why this achievement is so rare/hard. Just keep at it.

    Robster80Tried this morning, took a long break after failing repeatedly while nabbing 4 achievements in BATTLETOADS (2020), then earlier I went back and after several more attempts I got it! Definitely THE hardest achievement I've gotten if not one of them.
