NieR Replicant - Guide to Obtain Combo Fanatic & Combo Master (Early Game)

Written by solayyn   /   Updated: May 4, 2021    


In this guide I'll show you how to get the two only combo based achievements in the game which are Combo Fanatic (get a 50-hit combo) and Combo Master (get a 100-hit combo). I've seen people do these in multiple way and strategies, but today I'll show you how to do it in the first half and only 4 hours into the game.

How to Obtain Combo Fanatic & Combo Master Achievements Fast



The Location of the Enemy





As you all know, there is a particularly dangerous shade located in the Southern Plains. It is not only super bulky, but can also one-shot you in one hit.

The Shade Itself





Now, let's get into the main part of the guide. I'll explain what you should and shouldn't do:

  1. Do not use Grimoire Weiss and his magic, since magic hits don't count as combos.
  2. Don't bother using attack boosters or selecting the dlc weapons, since we need to do as less damage as possible to get the combo.

The strategy is pretty simple: run up to the shade and hit it with a slash and three kicks combo (light attack + heavy attack or square+triangle on the controller), then dodge it's arm attack. The reason why you should only use this this combo is that each kick deals 1 hit, which means that you'll get 4 hits per 2 seconds. It fills the combo count incredibly fast. Do this for 4 minutes, and you'll get your 50 hit achievement. Proceed to do it further to finally reach a 100-hit combo.

Achievement Unlocked (2 of Them, Actually)!





Once the combo counter goes up to 100, you'll get the second achievement. As far as I know, this is the fastest method to get these two achievements so early. You can also finish off the shade, my best tip is to use dark hand and keep you distance.
