4. Scenario Campaign: Part One
While all but one of the Scenario Campaign achievements can be done in co-op, it’s perfectly possible to go through it with an AI partner. This should also make it easier for you to keep combos going and rack up the kill requirements for a number of the achievements.
Note: the placement of achievements in this guide is where they unlocked for me but, due to the random nature of the weapons, item drops, stage replays and other factors, they could unlock earlier or later for you.
After a series of hand-drawn intro movies, recapping the events of the previous King of Iron Fist tournaments (don’t feel bad about skipping them, the story is typically inconsequential fighting game fodder and also pretty dull), you’ll be shown the intro movie that actually matters – a full CGI experience that’s really easy to differentiate from the previous ones and isn’t really boring.
With all of that done, you’ll find yourself in the tutorial level. Defeat your opponents (you’re invincible for this bit) for another extended CGI sequence. Eventually, you’ll find yourself back in control, but still in the tutorial level. This time you actually have health and, in true Tekken style, it will disappear quickly. Run down the path, taking out the enemies as you go. Smash every crate as you go to receive items and also work towards some achievements.
At the end of the path is a more formidable enemy. Defeat him to complete the stage and unlock:
You will also be awarded with some items that come with their own stats boosts and effects. For example, I received a pair of glasses which added a chance to inflict lightning damage with my attacks. You can now also unlock one character to be used in the Campaign instead of the default. Personally, I unlocked Steve as he’s been my main character for years.
You’ll now be on the map screen. You can pause the game here to customise and switch your character. In single player mode, you can equip items on your partner by altering their character in the customise menu. You should be customising your character between every stage as you will be unlocking new and hopefully better items as you go along. On the character select screen, selecting someone using the X button loads the 1P Model, while selecting them with START or A selects the 2P Model.
Note: if you select two items that have the same effect, only one of them will actually work so make sure you don’t double up.
When you’re finished, select the Southern Woodlands area to begin the next stage.
Proceed along the path, beating the crap out of anyone who turns up. You’ll notice that everyone here is a lot weaker than the tutorial stage. Remember to ensure you pick up everything that’s dropped by defeating opponents and smashing crates etc. In a short while, you’ll come to a set of gates and be swarmed by enemies. Keep your eye out for a tiny grey alien who should pop up here as well. You’ll need to kill him for progress towards an achievement. You’ll also very likely unlock:
Perform a 10 chain combo in Scenario Campaign Mode.
With the opponents dead, the gates ahead will open and you’ll face the area boss: Bryan. He will be considerably tougher than the normal enemies and you’ll probably fail quite a few times before you get used to it. The good thing is that failing still counts your progress towards achievements. Break the crates around the arena for items and there should be a weapon in one of the corners. Pick it up with A and use it with Y to kill someone and unlock:
If your partner is defeated, stand over them and hold A to revive them. If you’re playing in single player, revive your partner three times to unlock:
A Friend in Need
Rescue your downed partner 3 times in Scenario Campaign Mode (single player).
Defeat Bryan to complete the stage. This will unlock the South Bay Warehouse Area and the Arena.
South Bay Warehouse Area
After the first corner you’ll find a couple of crates. One of them is likely to contain a weapon so grab it and use it when you can - it won’t last long. At the end of the stage you’ll face Miguel to complete the stage and upgrade Alisa’s AI to level 2. This will also open the Container Terminal 3 and Queen’s Harbour stages.
Container Terminal 3
Here you’ll be facing a lot of Jacks and other mechanised characters. Keep breaking open the crates as you go along and you’ll find another weapon, just in time to take on a formidable Jack. After a row of four crates, you’ll fight another formidable enemy or two.
As you proceed onwards, you’ll reach the Boss fight against Jack-6. In the corner by the water is a crate and some items, including a small yellow flag with a red S. Pick it up to unlock:
This is a particularly hard fight as Jack-6 hits incredibly hard and there are a large number of minions around as well. Luckily it’s possible to knock people into the water, including Jack-6 himself, which can make the fight considerably easier and also gain progress towards an achievement.
Here you’ll be facing a lot of agile agent characters, but there shouldn’t be any problems. After a couple of corners, you’ll face Lili. Make sure to smash the crates behind her. You’ll be fighting her in a pretty small area so it’s quite easy to force her into a corner and absolute decimate her.
Defeating her will unlock Container Terminal 7. And she’ll give you a car. No, I don’t really know why, either.
Container Terminal 7
Here you’ll be facing some military guys who pack a hell of a punch and, to top it off, some of them have guns. Take the armed enemies out as soon as possible. The second crate you find will have a weapon in it. As you near the half way point of the stage, you’ll see three guys just standing next to the water; make sure to knock them off the edge.
If you find yourself at a dead end, you should be able to smash a huge bank of crates to reveal the way forward. There are enough enemies in this stage to easily unlock:
Soon you’ll turn a corner and face Dragunov. He has some very nasty moves, but again the area is small so it’s easy to corner and beat him. After a cutscene you will unlock:
Friend or Foe?
Reunite with your ally in Scenario Campaign Mode.
Alisa’s AI will now be level 3 and you’ll unlock the Fujian Tulou stage.
This level’s a bit different and has choices about which way you can go.
Go left and you’ll be swarmed by a lot of agile agents and a couple of Formidables. When you reach and break through a load of stacked lanterns, you’ll enter a small arena to fight Wang.
Go right and you’ll face pretty much the same things, except with added Ninja. As you go along you’ll find three crates next to each other, one of which contains a weapon. Use it as much as you can. Eventually you’ll reach Wang and, if you’re lucky and still have the pipe still in hand, a slightly easier fight.
Either way, you’ll unlock the West District, Wild Kingdom and Mishima Polytechnic stages.
Here you’ll quickly find another weapon, so use it to beat your way down the road where Xiaoyu will soon face you before running away. Be careful, she brings Panda with her. Around a couple more corners you’ll face Xiaoyu again and unlock the Industrial Complex stage.
West Coast Canal Industrial Complex
Pretty early on in this level you’ll find a weapon in a crate. This is a very good level to unlock:
Perform a 50 chain combo in Scenario Campaign Mode.
Just keep running between the enemies as fast as you can, remembering that breaking crates will keep your combo going. Also around now you’ll likely unlock:
King of the Hill
Knock 10 enemies in the water in Scenario Campaign Mode.
Soon you’ll face Baek in a surprisingly easy fight. He only has a couple of minions so you and your partner should easily destroy him to unlock the Industrial Highway stage.
Industrial Highway 357
Run along this stage fighting the enemies, shortly after the second boat goes past on the left, there will be an Alien hiding behind some containers to the right. There will also be an armed enemy here, so make sure to take him out asap. You’ll soon be jumped by a large number of enemies and it’s very easy to fail here, so be careful and try not to get surrounded.
Soon you’ll reach five crates in a line to your right. In one of these is a weapon, which makes it much easier to deal with the swarms of enemies. You’ll reach another set of four boxes soon and you’ll face Hwoarang. Defeat him to unlock:
Locate the Target
Learn the whereabouts of Heihachi Mishima in Scenario Campaign Mode.
Alisa’s AI will now reach level 4 and you’ll unlock the Nature Park and Excavation Site stages.
West District, 13th Avenue
Head to the right or left here and an enemy will drop down. Head forwards to continue the level. In this stage you’re very likely to unlock:
You’ll quickly reach a crate with a X2 bonus in it. Pick it up and go to town on the enemies. Soon Paul will appear before quickly running away again. Nearby where he breaks through is a crate with a weapon in it. Soon, you’ll face Paul again properly. In the far left of his arena are three crates, one of which contains another pipe. This will unlock the Chinatown and Abyss Gate stages.
West District, Chinatown
To the left of where you start will be a crate with a weapon in it. Yes, you can beat up the farm animals if you want, though you don’t get anything for it. Soon you’ll find another two crates with a weapon in one of them. In fact, there are weapons in crates all over this stage, which is nice.
Soon you’ll face Law, all on his own. There’s another weapon in the crates here. You should have no problems whatsoever beating the living crap out of him.
Firstly, load this level up in Hard mode. The crate to your left at the start will contain a ninja. Defeat him and he’ll drop a scroll. Pick this up to unlock Kigan Island. You can try completing the rest of the level now, but you’ll most likely die quickly. If so, change the difficulty back to Easy and try again.
This time, the crate on your left will be a weapon. After beating up a load of people, the gates ahead of you will open. Head through and there’s an Alien hiding in the centre crate. Be careful not to backtrack until the Alien is dead, as you’ll fall through the floor to the next section of the level. You’ll keep falling down, level after level, until you reach Steve. Be careful, he’s one of the most dangerous characters in the game.
As you’d expect for a secret stage, this is incredibly hard. It’s a very long level full of different ninjas.
After many corridors and collapsing floors, you’ll face Yoshimitsu. The good thing is, if you make it to Yoshimitsu, you no longer have to replay the first part of the level, you’ll just face him when retrying.
Defeating him will unlock:
Mixed Martial Arts Gym “Wild Kingdom”
Very soon you will come to a section where the camera pans around to your right. However, don’t go that way yet as slightly to the side of this turning you will find some crates to smash. Very soon, you’ll get to your first doubles Boss battle, against King and Marduk. This is not a nice combination. Luckily, they’re both reasonably slow so quick jabs are your friend here. There is also a weapon in one corner of the ring. Defeating them will unlock the Lost Cemetery stage.
After the first group of enemies, you’ll find a weapon in a crate on your right. Soon, you’ll reach the Boss fight with Armor King. The crates around the edges of the arena contain health, but you’re unlikely to need them.
Defeating him will raise Alisa’s AI to level 5.
16th Archaeological Expedition’s Excavation Site
There are two crates directly behind you here, containing a X2 multiplier and a weapon. Be careful in this area and keep an eye on the water on the left. If you see someone jump out, step backwards or you’ll get hit by some pretty damaging boxes from above. Soon you will see two crates in front of an archway, each containing a ninja. The floor through the archway will collapse, and you’ll work your way down until you reach an extra formidable enemy. This guy blocks, a lot, so can be quite difficult to take down. Your best bet is to let your partner distract him, then attack from behind.
Somewhere around here you should unlock:
Ready for Action
Pick up 300 health recovery items in Scenario Campaign Mode.
This will open a large door leading to a long passage. Watch the floor for shadows here as boxes will continually drop down on your head. Soon you’ll face Leo. Boxes will continue to fall from above here, so stick to the coloured circle in the middle to avoid them.
This will unlock the Secret Underground Passage stage.
Now try and repeat this level on Hard mode. If you manage to complete it, you’ll unlock the Subterranean Pavilion. There’s a good chance you’ll be considerably too weak to do this now, so I won’t mention in the guide until much later.
North Nature Park
Here, you’ll be fighting a load of bears. A load of suspiciously cub-like bears. Okay, you’re basically beating up a load of baby bears. There’s a crate directly behind you containing a weapon, to make you feel even worse about it all. Just when your weapon wears out, you should be next to a bunch of crates containing another one. You will also soon likely unlock:
Destroy 100 wooden crates in Scenario Campaign Mode.
After crossing a bridge, you’ll fight Kuma and some more cubs. Luckily, there’s another pipe here that will make short work of them all, you monster. This will unlock the Aranami Stable stage.
This stage is absolutely stuffed with Sumo wrestlers. They block a lot, hit hard and have a reasonably high health for a basic minon. You will also be fighting a load of black-clad ninjas. Soon you will be ambushed by Ganryu but also be on the lookout for a little Alien who should be just a little further down the path – he’ll run away if you don’t get to him quickly. If you don’t see him, he’ll turn up later. Somewhere soon you’re likely to unlock:
After Ganryu runs away, you’ll find a weapon on the road. After a bit more fighting, Ganryu will appear again before yet again running away. If you didn’t see the Alien earlier, he’ll be here instead. You’ll soon enter an arena to fight Ganryu proper, and he’ll be surrounded by Sumos making this a very difficult fight. You’re also likely to unlock:
Defeat 100 enemies with the Lead Pipe in Scenario Campaign Mode.
