A guide on all 18 Schwarzerblitz Achievements.
Hello! If you are reading this guide, I want to let you know that there will be some spoilers for the game, so if you want to avoid those, I suggest you avoid this guide like the plague. Another thing I want to point out is that I’m not perfect, and don’t know some things, so either tell me what I’d need to fix, or ask a question on the Schwarzerblitz Discord server. With that being said, lets get to it!
The Easy Ones
These achievements aren’t very hard to get, seriously, all you really need to do is play through the game as normal and you’ll get these. I’m not going to go into much detail on how to unlock them, since you can just look at the descriptions and put two and two together. In short, you can skip this part of the guide if you want.
Practice Makes Perfect: Clear Tutorial Mode
Not only is it an easy achievement, but it obviously teaches you how to use the Trigger Gauge, which is used for the next three achievements
Iron Fortress: Perform 20 or more Trigger Guards (VS or Arcade)
Run to the Hills: Perform 20 or more Trigger Cancels (VS or Arcade)
Devil Trigger: Perform 20 or more Trigger Combos (VS or Arcade)
You don’t have to do anything complex here, also DMC reference.
14th April, 2064…: Clear the Prologue in Story mode
Literally the first story mission
Lightning Strike: Clear Arcade mode once
This can be done with any character on any difficulty
Bang Bang Bang!: Consume 500 or more bullet counters (VS or Arcade)
This one is time consuming, but easy, you’ll probably get it while going for Schrödinger’s Truth
Much like the easy ones, there isn’t much explaining I need to do, regardless, these achievements will actually require some time, or for you to do something else in order to get the achievement.
Schrödinger’s Truth: Clear Arcade mode with all 16 main characters
I recommend you do this on beginner mode to save on time. Keep in mind that you only have to do it with the main characters, so you can ignore any character without their own Arcade ending such as Leo and Sir Rattlebones (The only exception being Donner).
The End?: Clear the Epilogue in Story Mode
I consider this to be a medium difficulty achievement since you need to go through the entire story mode, which also requires you to go through Arcade mode for story reasons. Much like Schrödinger’s Truth, I suggest beginner mode to save on time.
Time is Money: Clear Time Attack mode once
You have to unlock Time Attack mode first by doing Arcade mode a bunch (same with survival mode), but it’s pretty straightforward otherwise. The max number of rounds is set to 3 automatically while doing the mode however.
Survivor: Clear Survival Mode Once
This one might be a bit tough since you only get one round, your health doesn’t fully regen, and you have to go through 16 rounds instead of 8, but hey, your trigger gauge refills between rounds, and you can set the difficulty to beginner!
ULTRA C-C-C-COMBO: Perform a 40+ hits combo (VS or Arcade)
Despite the Killer Instinct reference, you don’t need to pull anything too crazy unless you want to, all you need is H-168 Krave, a full trigger gauge, and knowledge on how to spam Mr. Driller. In other words, haha drill go brr.
The Difficult Ones
(The Reason I Made This Guide)
These ones require, skill, time, or ♥ in order to complete them. You might need all three in order to do a certain one that i’ll cover last.
Supreme Diamond Crusher!: Perform a 1200+ damage combo (VS or Arcade mode)
My guess from the image is that you’re supposed to use Lazer Loyra to do the combo, which makes sense seeing as he’s capable of one shotting everyone. However if you lack skill, patience, pride, or all three, then go to the workshop, download the One Punch Man mod, and grab someone in arcade mode to get the achievement.
Thread Severed (Secret Achievement): Beat Doll in Arcade mode
I don’t know the exact requirements for this fight, I just got it when I was going through Arcade mode as Arkaneis (more on him later) and got this fight (check the end of the section for a way to get the fight)
ENiGMA Crushed (Secret Achievement): Beat K-069 in Arcade mode
For this one, I believe you have to get 2 perfects in order to access the fight, not sure, check the end of this section for a way to get the fight for sure. The only thing I’m certain of for this fight is that Maclay’s Fable (the song that plays in the background) goes HARD AS HELL AND I LOVE IT!
Seriously, HOW did you do that? (Secret Achievement): Get a double KO (VS or Arcade)
♥ that’s how. The only other way would be to pick a stage that has a ring out on all sides, get both players to the edge of the stage, and jump backwards at the same time. Otherwise, go into the local files of the game and go to the media/stages folder and pick a stage (preferably lavaCave). From there, open the Config.txt file, change the second number under #POSITION to something extremely low like -1337 or something and save it! When you go to that stage in VS mode, both characters should die, and you should get the achievement, hold down start to return to the menu and make sure you change the number back to what it was in the config file! If you don’t the stage will become unplayable!
Knowledge Check: Clear all character Trials
This one is going to be a very time consuming one, especially since you do need to pull off some longer strings with each character.
Evil Vanquished (Secret Achievement): Beat Emperor Arkaneis in Arcade mode
Oh boy this achievement, THIS, ACHIEVEMENT. The main reason why this guide exists is because the requirements for this achievement are numerous, and I don’t want anyone to suffer the pain of having to find the requirements, only the pain from having to fufill them. In order to get the secret Arcade fight with the Doom Emperor himself, you must fulfill these requirements:
- Game’s difficulty is set to hard or above.
- You can’t lose a single match.
- Get three perfects, two of which need to be obtained within the first two matches in order to fight K-069.
- Get two ring outs before the 6th round in order to face Doll.
- And finally, beat the climatic “Duel of the Fates” round without using a continue.
Only then, will you be able to face Arkaneis, AND THIS BASTARD IS CHEAP. His undodgeable psycho crusher move, his high/low fireball, and that GOD FORSAKEN FULLSCREEN UNBLOCKABLE TESLA COIL would be more than enough to break your will into tiny pieces, thankfully, this isn’t KOF 2002 UM, so you can retry the fight until you win. The hard part of this fight isn’t really the fight itself (although it’s still pretty hard), but rather completing the requirements, so just keep trying until you’re able to fight him and NEVER GIVE UP!
