This achievement should be gotten as you are leveling up your characters. Some facts about the achievement that should help you.

*Each character has a max level of 20, so the higher your level, the easier this achievement might be to accomplish

*The ranged characters, Scarlett, haakon and Avalon, can help a lot with the Goblin Chieftains. They show up at 1-3 and 1-6 and are the hardest of the enemies you face.

*The Goblin Chieftain is really only vulnerable after he's made a brutal slashing charging attack, unless you use a ranged weapon.

*You must beat all 6 levels with each character, so that's 24 perfect rounds in all.

*Karlsnor does not have a ranged weapon, so has the toughest time beating the Goblin Chieftain.

*You don't have to beat the levels in order. As long as you beat all 6 without dying with each character, you are fine. Any order will do.

*You can quit out and restart if you are not going to beat a boss or are going to die mid-level.

*Karlsnor depletes his energy when he rolls or uses the (Y) button. To keep his health up, use rage often against normal enemies. Be aware he's also slower while enraged.

Tips for beating the Goblin Chieftain with Karlsnor (Assuming you are level 20)
Your first few times, you will probably get slaughtered. Stay well away from the enemy and try to get him to charge you. Do not ever try to enrage Karlsnor and engage him directly toe to toe. When he charges, dodge away. Dodge dodge dodge. It depletes your energy, but it will keep you alive. You'll never have higher than 0 Energy except after a successful hit. When it's time to make a hit, jump at him, smack him in the head, then press (X+A) to activate rage and then (B) to roll away. This all takes about 1 second, so it should be fast, (X), (X+A),(B). What this does is if you are level 20, it will send a rage shock at the enemy. Since you can never use rage anyways, might as well use it for these "shocks" this is the only way i found I could hit him more than once and do decent damage. Sometimes he stays dizzy for two rounds, sometimes he comes out of it immediately, that's why it's important to predict this move and dodge away each time after 1 hit. (And the rage if you have it). So... to reiterate, I'm not saying to save your rage, I'm saying gain the little bit of rage for your first hit, use the rage immediately, and dodge away. If you try to swing at him twice, you'll end up getting hit back and he hits really really hard. This strategy should be more than enough to beat 1-3. But 1-6 is another matter

Beating two chieftains 1-6
Now that you have the, (X),(X+A),(B) strategy, you should be able to take on both of the bosses, but now the stakes are different since they can pin you down between them. My strategy here was simple, use the middle pillar. I was never once in danger of dying because I stayed on the pillar 95% of the time. The middle pillar has two structures roughly as tall as the Goblin Chieftain sticking out creating and angle of roughly 90% or so between them. Do not bother standing on these, stand on the ring around the pillar that is on the same level as these two structures. It doesn't seem like you can, but you can. You can literally run around the entire pillar without falling if you practice. You can't be hit by almost any of the Goblin's attacks if you are smart and keep the structures between you and them. Wait for the Goblins to charge, and jump down and hit, then escape between the space between the pillar and the structure, and jump back onto your ring immediately. Always use (X),(X+A) and (B) to dodge away. You can even use (X), (X+A+B) I don't think it really matters as long as you are dodging away from the enemy and not trying to hit him twice. This took me about 30 minutes, but I still had half my health and never died. The enemies leading up to them may have been the cause of some of my damage, I'm not sure. I'm almost certain you could beat them both without ever getting hit once.
James HoskinThis is an excellent guide for going undefeated with Karlsnor. Previously, I couldn't beat either chieftain level with him. After reading this, it only took me a couple of tries on level 1-3, and I beat 1-6 on my first attempt.

Cheers! toast

PalmettoBlingYou might want to add that this can be completed in co-op! Those chieftains are a snap when Karlsnor is accompanied by a level 20 helper. I believe you only get credit for the champion playing on your account.

LockieDamn, I finished all the levels with all four characters without dying but the achievement says 95% complete. :( Project Spark did lose connection briefly during the first Karlsnor boss battle so I guess I'll try there first. Such a pain! Wish you could skip the cutscenes.
Posted by Lockie on 27 Nov 14 at 12:17
LockieOh nevermind, it apparently unlocked overnight, haha. facepalm My strategy for beating the chieftains with Karlsnor was to run around and get them to become stuck on terrain and then use the rage shock as you suggested. Nice guide.

acaraba2Are you able to level select after beating it once or do you have to start from the beginning again

Sly StrategistFor some reason I'm stuck at 83% Really sucks that you can't skip cut scenes.

FullMoonBeaverDone it with Scarlett with little problem at level 13. Gonna level up Karlsnorr as much as I can as I don't like him all that much. Need to purchase the other 2 characters though. Thanks for the guide, gonna use it when I get around to playing it.

McRedRoverI'm pretty sure this is still glitched. I have done all four characters in a sitting back to back twice today and it still only says 91% :(

BPN GAMINGThere's a few people that have been reporting it glitches on the forums and here, hopefully it gets fixed.
Posted by BPN GAMING on 25 Apr 15 at 07:33
LikableSeeker99Stuck on 83%. Maybe in the next episode we could find the tiles that fix the achievements.

KatchPhrase420I'm also stuck on 83%.

KGaAIf you have problems with Karlsnor in lvl 1-3 or 1-6, you can use Avalon on the 2nd controller to help u beat the Goblin Chieftains.

Just make sure that Karlsnor is on the main controller (which controls the view angle). Spam cn_Y key on the 2nd controller. Since Avalon is a ranged hero and can auto regen herself, it‘s super easy to beat those levels.

WestsideSxEstuck at 87% it seems, thought I just needed to do Karlsnor on 1-5, wasted a good 45 mins doing the local co-op bit by myself, and tracker did not budge. Not only that, but when it went to 1-6 it switched itself to Haarkon for some reason, and the co-op achievement tracker hopped to 33%, argh...

Senryu BRI have bad news i tryed whif co-op and alone and four of kind can be only win, ALONE!!!, i don´t know if that is the way dakota want or a bug, but only opended when i did all alone whif Karlsnor but the way modern07 tell is very good to kill chief goblin the problem is find a place to maintain the boss "locked", you have to waste some tries and time to find a place to do modern07 method (for me worked movin camera and mantain the boss in the right fund of stage 3 and in stage 5 goin back to the bridge and jump between the "arks" and stones when you fight 2 bosses and whait they became "locked") but when finds works very quickly because last update make the wave damage level ability even stronger

shelbygt5252Can't unlock this in coop anymore, unfortunately
Posted by shelbygt5252 on 10 Oct 15 at 03:51
SkormsGhostJust did it in coop it still works. If one of the players dies though it will not count for that level.
Posted by SkormsGhost on 10 Oct 15 at 20:56
shelbygt5252That is good to know, will try to go through it again with a coop player, thanks

TheSign88I have done this with two characters but no % shows is this wrong?
Posted by TheSign88 on 05 Nov 15 at 23:40
mosin360Can be done pretty easily with Karlsnor at level 13. Just dodge and attack when its safe.
Posted by mosin360 on 08 Nov 15 at 20:13
shelbygt5252Just FYI, I was not able to unlock this in coop, I had to go through with every character alone. Some people were able to, however
Posted by shelbygt5252 on 09 Nov 15 at 06:51
iBADAMSI just confirmed that yes, you can obtain this achievement in co-op. You must make sure that neither you or your co-op partner dies or the level does not count.

I went through this twice with the achievement tracker open. I never died but my co-op partner did and on those levels the progress never went ahead. Tried the same again and this time neither of us died and the achievement progress advanced.

WOW DYLANDoes falling down while trying to jump on a ledge count as dieing? It didn't say I died but I didn't get the achievement either?
Posted by WOW DYLAN on 04 Dec 15 at 12:11
WOW DYLANOkay so I was doing it co op and I was stuck on 91% but then did it solo and it went up to 95% after re doing the first mission. So my advice if it's still on a % do it on solo
Posted by WOW DYLAN on 04 Dec 15 at 12:26
REJECt444+1 for good advice on winning with Karlsnor. Won both fights 1st try using this method.
Posted by REJECt444 on 30 Jan 16 at 03:11
KenH2k4I just finished 1-5 with Karlsnor by jumping on the fallen pillar opposite the place you input the Kode and continuously double jumping and holding Y to ground pound the chieftains to death
Posted by KenH2k4 on 14 May 16 at 22:54
TheSign88Grab a friend and do ot in co-op it's ridiculously easy have karsnor as controller 1 did this today.
Posted by TheSign88 on 19 May 16 at 16:48
vegansound*You don't have to beat the levels in order. As long as you beat all 6 without dying with each character, you are fine. Any order will do.

I guess there is no possibility to track what has been done so far? I'm à 50% of the achievement, but I don't remember what's left to be done...
Posted by vegansound on 22 May 16 at 16:46
erod550The attack, rage, roll combo worked beautifully. Beat him on the first try. Thanks.
Posted by erod550 on 23 May 16 at 18:23
LIWCFor those stuck on 1-3 (and want to do it solo or might not be level 20), I lured the Chieftain to the hole in the wall on the right side of the cave (right side as the cut scene starts). Stand on the side of the hole with the pink brazier (he should be lured to the other side of the hole). Wait for him to do his roll attack - he'll roll into the holed wall and then be stunned for a second or two. When he's stunned, jump up to the hole and smack him like a ginger step-child. Retreat. Repeat. Pick up remains of dignity for cheesing it.

Idan345what if i fell?
does that count as dying?
Posted by Idan345 on 25 Jun 16 at 06:37
TheSign88Falling is fine and won't affect the achievement.
Posted by TheSign88 on 25 Jun 16 at 09:44
WyyvernPlease can someone make a video showing how it can be done? Thanks in advance.
Posted by Wyyvern on 07 Jul 16 at 23:36
JblacqIs there any way to choose the level? I only have to do the 2 chieftain fight with Karlsnor.
Posted by Jblacq on 02 Aug 16 at 01:01
WyyvernYou can't choose the levels unfortunately.

CPI Edson MotaJust sharing some information:
1) After finishing co-op with Karlsnor the achievement did't popped;
2) In co-op I got Coup d'état, so it's possible that it blocked this achievement somehow;
3) It unlocked after doing 1-3 solo as LIWC said;
4) I did it when Spark server was offline, so people may be able to get after the shutdown.

keke7302Hi everyone, I have a little problem with this achievement and I haven't been able to find someone with a similar one so I'm posting here.

So there's the thing: I did the 4 runs solo with the required characters and everything did count (arrived at 100%). But it STILL didn't unlock and shows "unlocking" without an end on the achievement tracker.

Anyone has an idea what can be the cause?

Thanks :)

Oriole2682Wish I read this about the co-op partner not dying before spending 5 hours on it...keke you are fine that is a known Xbox issue you have already met the requirements and it will show up for you someday
