So I am dealing with an issue here.

I am currently at world 3 and I checked the achievement list for the first time (have unlocked some just by playing). Then I saw this achievement:

CupheadBouncing BallThe Bouncing Ball achievement in Cuphead worth 80 pointsParry five times before hitting the ground


I was 100% that I have done those 5 parries before, yet I didn't earn the achievement. I doubted myself and I went to try and farm this at some spots recommended at the solutions (the queen bee boss, the run and gun in world 2 -where btw I originally got my 5 parries without checking the achievement list). However, I got no luck and the achievement remains locked (not done unlocking or 100% locked, just 0% locked).

I am pretty sure I am doing everything as intended and as shown in some videos (in stage 2 of the bee boss, I got like 10+ parries in the row). I have also done the removed my acc-power cycle the console-redownload my acc thing. No luck either.

Has anyone experienced this?

edit: I am going to try and record a clip of me attempting this, just in case I am missing something and I am doing it wrong, though I highly doubt it.

Just to make sure....

You aren't touching the ground right?


It's 5 in a row.... before your feet hit the ground.

Hey, thanks for the reply.

Yeah, I do know that it's 5 in a row, all in the air. laugh

I will try to upload the clip I just recorded, in which I do 5+ in a row twice.

edit: OK, so now the achievement went to 100% locked status (maybe 1-2 attempts after I did a run for a game clip). That's a good sign. Maybe XBL was having some issues. Hopefully, the cheevo will pop in 3-4 days.

A lot of people are claiming Achievement issues recently. It's most likely a Microsoft thing.

Yeah, that's probably the case. However, I found it weird cause I unlocked 1-2 achievements after that (complete world 2 for example) and after I tried to farm it since yesterday, I unlocked 1 achievement (the finding one shortcut one).

Btw, here is my clip from yesterday:

Yeah you did the achievement. Just wait for the pop. Should happen whenever whatever Microsoft issue gets resolved.

My achievements have been taking awhile to pop for about the past week on Cuphead. Happened to me on Bravo Zulu P-26 and Pacifist and I was getting kind of nervous because they took forever to pop.
