  • Purchase the Hedjet from the Black Market.
  • Access the bottom cave in 3-1 and climb to the top to find the Ankh.
  • Enter the Temple of Anubis (4-1) from a lower door in 3-1 and kill Anubis to gain the Scepter.
  • Find the City of Gold door in 4-2. It will open with the Scepter and Hedjet.
  • Find the large altar in the City of Gold. Fall from a tall height to die so your body lands on the altar. If you have the Ankh, you’ll revive.
  • Respawn in Duat. Climb to the (there’s no time limit) and kill Osiris to collect the Tablet of Destiny. Then kill Anubis to exit.
  • Travel down to 6-2 and find the room with the strange figurines. Open your journal and check the Tablet of Destiny — it gives you three randomly-generated clues. One clue describes the condition of the figurine, one describes the material, and one describes the symbol. Collect the figurine that matches all three descriptions.
  • Go down to 6-3 and put down the figurine. It will break open and spawn Qilin, a flying mount. Now you need to reach 6-4, the final boss arena. Qilin can take up to four hits in total so, beware of that.
  • In 6-4, you have to kill the boss (Or not? idk if you can skip it). Fly up with Qilin until you get to the secret optional exit door at the very top. Congrats! You reached the Sunken City.

Master

  • Complete the game by defeating Hundun in a non-seeded, single-player run.

Awakened

  • Reach the Cosmic Ocean in a non-seeded, single-player run.
  • To get there, is even more complicated than the Pilgrim achievement!, basically all you have to do is:

  • Go to the volcano area.
  • Find the bow in the moon challenge.
  • Activate the drill with the Udjat Eye.
  • Grab the crown and vlad’s cape from the top of the vampire tower (If you rescued van helsing in 2-1, you'll have an easier time).
  • Store the bow with waddler in olmec’s stage.
  • You may need a couple bombs to reach his cave. Once you’re in there, drop the bow on his pedestal. The floor should light up to indicate that it’s been stored.
  • Defeat olmec and get the ankh.
  • Grab the sword in 4-2.
  • Drop the sword in 4-3 as soon as you start, find the one-way door, and die by lava, by touching the idol.
  • Now bring your sword to the secret entrance.
  • Kill Osiris, and get the tablet.
  • Travel down to 6-2 and find the room with the strange figurines. Open your journal and check the Tablet of Destiny — it gives you three randomly-generated clues. One clue describes the condition of the figurine, one describes the material, and one describes the symbol. Collect the figurine that matches all three descriptions.
  • Go down to 6-3 and put down the figurine. It will break open and spawn Qilin, a flying mount. Now you need to reach 6-4, the final boss arena. Qilin can take up to four hits in total so, beware of that.
  • In 6-4, you have to kill the boss (Or not? idk if you can skip it). Fly up with Qilin until you get to the secret optional exit door at the very top.

Challenges Related



Excavator

  • Complete the Moon Challenge in a non-seeded run.
  • You’ll find an npc which chalenges you with the Moon Challenge, early in world 2. This NPC can show up either in the forest or lava versions of the world. She’ll ask you for $10,000 in return for taking on the Moon Challenge, so pay this and head into the door behind it.
  • All you have to do, is just reveal all the rooms available in the cave network.
  • The challenge won’t end until you’ve broken the Mattock given to you at the beginning.

Torchbearer

  • Complete the Star Challenge in a non-seeded run.
  • In world 4, you will find a NPC that challenges you into the star challenge. All you have to do here, is just light up all of the torches within a time limit. Pretty easy, specially with a Jetpack.

Survivor

  • Complete the Sun Challenge in a non-seeded run.
  • In world 7, you will find the sun challenge. The Sun Challenge is kinda difficult, as the room will fill with enemies, and you have to survive until the timer runs out.

Item Related



Her Favorite

  • Obtain the Kapala in a non-seeded run.
  • The Kapala is an item obtained by sacrificing bodies to the obscure goddess Kali in her altar.

Divine Right

  • Obtain some royal headwear in a non-seeded run.
  • [will add info on how to get it once I get it by myself. As far as I know, you have to use the drill with the udjat eye on the volcano area.]

A Second Chance

  • Obtain the Ankh in a non-seeded run.
  • Possibly you can buy it at the black market like the first game? I have to fact check this for myself.

Chosen One

  • Obtain the Tablet of Destiny in a non-seeded run.
  • For more info on how to get this item, read the pilgrim achievement guide, under the spoiler tag.

Parenthood

  • Wake the Eggplant Child in a non-seeded run.
  • Getting this achievement is a little complicated, as you have to
  • Acquire the Eggplant by placing a present box (acquiring by a vendor, spawns randomly) on a bloody altar.
  • Take the Eggplant all the way down to the Ice Caves 5-1.
  • Place the Eggplant on the purple altar.
  • The eggplant will hatch and become the Eggplant Child.
  • You can still do more with the child, like literally discovering a new area that does not appear in the journal until discovered. I don't really know how to get there, so until I have a clear path, I'm sorry, but I'll have to say that you should google "Spelunky 2 Egg Plant level" on your own. Mostly because it's not needed for any achievement.
