    This achievement is gained by completing the 5th single player Challenge level, Dragon Dogma.

    I wanted to add a text guide with my videos to explain a few things about the strategy I found that finally worked VERY well and easily. When I went back to snap a clip to help a friend out, I did it first try, and almost the 2nd try until I did something really dumb. laugh

    1. At the very start, grab the laser gun, then hang out on the right side of and next to the unbreakable barrier.(reverse all directions if you prefer left side)
    2. When the Dragons come on the screen, immediately run between the two dragon heads close to the wall--you cannot be hit here in the first stage.
    3. using the D-pad, press either up or down and start lasering the Dragons! If the Dragon shoots a ball of fire, it will disappear quickly. If it breathes flame, you can get 6+ hits if you do it perfect.
    4. Watch out for Fireballs coming from Dragons across the screen, and dodge down or up slightly as necessary.
    5. As soon as the Dragons leave the screen, hurry back to Step 1's location... and repeat the above steps!
    6. Focus on only one Dragon this way and kill it, then start counting how many hits you've done on the others(for example, Green-1, Purple-3, Blue-0...Green2,3,4, Purple4, Blue0... Green5,6,7,8, Purple... etc)
    7. I've found that it seems to vary how many hits you make--I think it might not count hits you make as the Dragons are leaving the screen, and overall, it takes 8 good hits I think to kill a Dragon.
    8. With 3 Dragons left, try to get each Dragon hit at least 7 times. The reason is when there are only 2 Dragons left, they start doing different more dangerous and unpredictable attacks.
    9. When you're ready, start shooting the Dragons, and when there are two left, watch out. They start doing very dangerous flame attacks while moving--the safest place I found from the flame attacks is on the inside of the side barriers, and you have to switch halfway through to the side the Dragon isn't on. If they Dragons are doing the side moving Rapid-Fire Ball attack, it's very easy to avoid, just stay in the very middle between the side blockades. If the Dragon does the Rapid-fire Ball attack in one place, try to get behind anything you can. You are usually safe hiding in the corners of the blockades.

    I hope this all helps! laugh

    DuncosOh my god, I did this in one run thanks to this guide. I put it off because I was doing it by luck and got frustrated. Perfect solution.

    *There was an update with a new EASY MODE and it is confirmed to give achievements* credit to clobxclark

    This achievement is earned by finishing the fifth challenge. Pretty easy challenge, you just have to kill all the dragons. Here is a video guide for this achievement.

    After watching (and trying) all the previous videos i think this is the best and fastest way to get over this achievement. Stay at the right side and move left a bit all the time. I hope you find it useful.

    Thanks to the maker of this video: "Fun with Chainsaw!"

    BigLanceLSGreat video.

    My only comment is that when there are only two dragons left and the one sweeps the entire side, make sure to stay as close to the dragon's mouth as possible when he reaches the top or bottom wall.

    EazyE2285Didn't even try the others after I tried hiding behind the walls and got killed each time. Saw this was different description and watched the video. Got it my third try. Easiest no doubt
