    The first and easiest place to get this, and also Combo Fanatic, is in what we can call the “prologue” of the game.

    As pointed out by @RabidPiano you will have an easier time getting this achievement during the prologue if you're playing on a higher difficulty.

    If you do miss this at the start of the game, there is a second point you can earn it. I'll note that down below and credit goes to @good Super man for sharing this!

    NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139...Combo FanaticThe Combo Fanatic achievement in NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139... worth 17 pointsYou pulled off a 50-hit combo.


    The key thing to remember here is to only use your sword/physical attacks - basically only press cn_X.

    At the very start of the game, when you first meet the characters in a snowy city - you will be bombarded with monsters you have to kill.

    These monsters are easy to kill and they keep coming.

    You will get tips as you play that’ll tell you to use skills, but do not do this. As using your magic abilities doesn’t count towards the combos and will reset it.

    Only your physical (pressing cn_X) attacks count.

    Once you’ve got 50 and then 100 you will have unlocked both of these achievements.

    If you do miss it here you can pick up both achievements by attacking the boar, which’s detailed in the other guide.

    As pointed out by @good Super man There is a side quest during the second part of the game called "A Tale of the Study". There is a shade to defeat here however melee attacks don't work on it. so you can go ham and spam attacks until you unlock the achievements.

    good Super manI got this achievement during the 2nd part of the game during a side quest called A Tale of the Study which takes place in Emil's Manor. The quest requires you to kill a shade in the study but the shade has a shield on it and your melee attacks do no damage to it but your combo will keep going up.

    RabidPianoThough it's probably obvious, I'd just like to add that attempting this in the Prologue on Hard difficulty will make it much easier. On Easy or even Normal, the Shades die too quickly to be able to reliably keep your combo rising.

    GazzBabsThanks for this. Started a new game to grab this and the other one.

    Also nice that you’re actually giving credit to people unlike the others.

    The other guides are some of the options that I will exclude from my guide. I felt that another incredibly easy way to get this achievement is in the Shadowlord's Castle in the last act of the game while fighting "Goose".
    Goose is a huge boar shade that after you "beat" it the first time, will armor up. Once he armors up and is beat the first time, he'll stand up & regenerate his health while starting to release a gas. You can constantly stand there and hit him (as mentioned in the other guides, magic does NOT attribute to the hit count). He won't die and will continue this loop until you choose to go through the door. Using a lance/spear will up your count quicker than a sword as this weapon has more hits in its light string.

    Hope this helps!

    This is as simple as starting a new game on easy and turning on autobattle.

    Go to options make sure auto magic is switched off and attack and auto guard are switched on. When the prologue boss appears mash X if he tries to hit you you'll automatically dodge. He'll go down way before you get to 100 but as long as you don't jump up and attack the head like the games wants you to he'll keep getting back up indefinitely.

    There are probably many other spots to do this but this is the earliest.

    EDIT: Another easy location for this is Southern Plains, a big shade will show up in the middle area there early in the game. Same deal, set the game to easy , auto battle on and disable auto magic and mash X. The reason I say mash X despite having auto attack on is if left to Nier to attack he will pause sometimes long enough to break the combo.

    Andre AlexandrThis is definitely the easyest way to do it. Can be done in a secondary/dummy save slot and just took a couple minutes to be done if you don't bother to unlock it this way instead of keep punishing yourself with well timed weak attacks in big hordes of enemies without any reward than the sound ofthis popping in the first time..
