This guide will be showing you the exact process of how to get all achievements in Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition. There’s a total of 33 achievements in the game, and some of them will require you to discover some hidden secrets in the game.
The following achievements can be unlocked as you progress through the game.
Earn a Ludicrous Gibs Bonus
Often happens to enemies when using a missile weapon.
Greed Is Good
Get an extra life by collecting Ankhs
Get 100 Ankhs for a 1-UP
“Fool Me Once…”
Kill a Lightning Guard who previously played dead
Lightning Guards will sometimes beg for their lives and pretend to be dead. They quickly get back up and start shooting you, so be less trigger-happy to gain this accomplishment.
Death From Above
Kill an enemy by landing on its head
This works well in more vertical regions. It makes no difference how high you are because standing on top of an adversary will cause them to take damage.
Fire From Olympus
Kill five enemies with a single God Mode Powerup fireball
God Mode fires orbs that target and kill adversaries in a chain. If you do it in a larger group, you should have no trouble getting this.
Kill three enemies with a Dog Mode Powerup bark blast
In Dog Mode, holding down the fire button charges a bark explosion that, if held long enough, destroys everything in a wide area. It is simple to land on a gathering of foes.
Roast five enemies in one firewall shot
The Flamewall fires a missile on the ground, which transforms into a wall of flames as it moves ahead. To get this, line up foes in a row and shoot from a distance.
Kill two enemies with a split missile
Shortly after firing, the Split Missile divides into two horizontal rockets. Each of the two rockets must land and kill two distinct adversaries, thus they must be perfectly aligned.
Kill five enemies in one level with the Excalibat special attack
The Excalibat charges up and unleashes an explosive pitching move when the fire button is pushed. To get this, line up foes horizontally.
Before It Was Cool
Get some serious air with a firebomb jump without dying
Get the asbestos armor and firebomb first. Then, in order to rocket jump without perishing, press up against the edge of a wall and shoot down.
Painting The Walls
Gib an enemy while under the influence of the Shrooms Mode Powerdown
Grab Shrooms Mode, then use a missile or other weapon to gib an adversary. It’s possible that “The HUNT Begins – E1A3: The Fourth Door” is the level with mushrooms that you can find the earliest.
Completion and Bosses
Achievements you get by progressing through the Episodes normally
Goin’ Down the Fast Way
Beat “The HUNT Begins”
Get to the very end of “The HUNT Begins” end-of-episode messages
Make sure not to skip the credits after you finish “The HUNT Begins”!
Beat “Dark War”
Beat any level in “Extreme ROTT”
I Choose The Stairs
Beat “The HUNT Continues”
Achievements for killing the end of episode bosses in “Dark War”
Buried In A Lunchbox
Defeat General Darian
Fought in E1B7; you destroy all the switches in the arena and he eventually opens the door and comes out of his central room. If you manage to get the Asbestos armor in his room, the rockets he shoots barely damage you so it should be an easy fight if you get it.
Not A Hallucination
Defeat Sebastian “Doyle” Krist
Fought in E2B7; Krist fires rockets and discs at you. Use circle strafing and dipping in and out behind cover for this boss.
Just A Rolling Trashcan
Defeat the NME
Fought in E3B7; The Nasty Metallic Enforcer fires homing rockets, discs, drunk missiles and a volley of fireballs. Make sure to move constantly, searching the arena for as many resources as possible and avoid getting cornered since this boss is no joke.
A Bad Egg
Defeat El Oscuro without eliminating all of his eggs
I Hate Snakes
Defeat El Oscuro while eliminating his eggs
El Oscuro presents a triad of elevated challenges during the course of the encounter, designated as E4A7, E4A9, and E4A10. Within the framework of E4A7, the recommended approach for contending with this principal adversary involves refraining from discharging projectiles, as any such action triggers a reprisal involving a comparable assault. Optimal strategy dictates awaiting the transformation of El Oscuro into a serpent-like form, at which point he departs the scene. Transitioning to E4A9, the operative course involves relentless pursuit of El Oscuro throughout the stage, in alignment with the thematic implications of the level title. However, the pinnacle of the engagement resides within E4A10, where the true essence of the confrontation unfolds.
- To get the bad ending and the A Bad Egg achievement, you have to kill El Oscuro as normal in the arena in the middle without destroying all the eggs in the level. (El Oscuro can only be damaged when it’s over a firepit.)
- To get the good ending and the I Hate Snakes achievement, you have to kill all the eggs in the level, which are all located in three separate rooms throughout the final level. Also eggs can not be killed by bullets, only by rockets, staffs, etc.
- To get to the third egg room, you either have to have the Flight powerup enabled and fly over the wall, or use the FireBomb and Asbestos armor to look down, fire at your feet and rocket jump.
Secret Exits, Secret Items and more Secret Achievements.
Finish any level with all enemies killed and all secrets found
Best done on a small level. The game only will tell you if you got everything on the level results screen so be thorough.
Prelude To A Kill
There is no achievement associated with the game’s initial hidden exit. The elevator in level E1A1 of “The HUNT Begins” is concealed behind a push block and doesn’t operate until three minutes have passed. Additionally, it shuts down in five minutes, so move swiftly. A series of GADs and switches in the elevator room activates a side room in the elevator area that opens to the hidden exit.
The secret exit leads to three bonus levels from “The HUNT Begins Deluxe Edition”
Wall to Wall
Find the entrance to “Wall to Wall”
Found in E1A3 – The Fourth Door of “The HUNT Begins”. In the final room with the exit, there’s a touchpad on the ground behind some barrels which opens a side room. Get past the numerous traps to get to the secret exit.
Turn of the Screw
Find the entrance to “Turn of the Screw”
Found in E1A3 – Burned and Amazed. In approximately the bottom right corner of the map, you find a jump pad into a flying powerup. Use the powerup to fly over nearby spike traps, over a pillar, fire and other traps to get to the secret exit.
Find the entrance to “Elevator Trouble”
Found in E2A5 – Rocky Plateau. There are a lot of touchpads in the canyon and when you activate them all, it opens a side path to the secret exit.
Eight Ways to Hell
Find the entrance to “Eight Ways to Hell”
Found in E3A6 – Movin’ Walls. A touchplate that opens a neighboring secret and another touchplate that opens another nearby area are both located directly on the tile before the exit door. To avoid being crushed and to get past a squad of enforcers protecting the hidden exit, you must use a Godmode powerup to unlock a nearby pushwall.
Find the entrance to “Switched Around”
Found in E4A4 – Diamonds & Rust. Pick up Asbestos Armor and a Firebomb in order to get through a pathway of fireballs and blade traps. You then have to rocket jump over a smaller wall to reach the secret exit.
Find the Developer Ball
Found in E2A6 – The Four-Way Chamber. HUNT the level for the Red Key which opens up a small room with a Red door with the Developer Ball inside.
Find the Incredible Ball
Found in E3A3 – Dead in Five Seconds. In the maze near the beginning of the level, there is a pushwall close to a Ballistikraft which leads to a lot of fire and then the Developer Ball.
Find the Power Ball
Found in E4A6 – Circles of Fire. After you activate a touchpad, the fire walls close off the entrance so you have to run back out before they close. Backtrack to an earlier room with a lot of Ankhs and a wall has opened to reveal the last Developer Ball.
Find Scott’s Mystical Head
Found in E2A3 – The Room. There is a jump pad leading to a catwalk that drops off to Bulletproof Armor and two additional lives in an area with a switch, a number of spikes, and a powerup called Flight. On the catwalk, there is a certain point where you can step that won’t kill you and will take you to a hidden location with Scott’s skull. To locate the tunnel, use the automap.
The following two levels demand cheats, so type “DIPSTICK” to activate them while playing normally, and then type “GOTO” to access a level select.
You Do Not Belong Here
Enter a warp-only level
Free a moving wall from the confines of reality
Go to “E4A13 – This Causes an Error!” and wait for something glorious.
