High on Life Achievement Guide

Welcome to the High on Life Achievement guide!

4/10 Estimated Difficulty
15 – 20 Estimated Hours to Completion.
1 Minimum Story Playthrough
8 Missable Achievements

Everything here, can be earned in a single playthrough, but there are some missables to look out for. Outside of those, there are a lot of story related Achievements and collectibles. The collectibles are not missable. There is free roam after beating the story, so you can clean up non missables post game.

There are also no difficulty related Achievements. So feel free to play through the game on whatever difficulty you’d like.

Missables

As previously mentioned, there are seven missable Achievements to keep an eye out for and they will be listed below in the order that you can earn them.

  • Fallout Doesn’t Let you Do This
  • Don’t Knife the Hand That Feeds
  • A Starfish is Born – Multi-step Achievement that needs to be started early.
  • Gunning For Your Job
  • Carried Stan’s Load to Completion – Starts here and earned by finishing the game.
  • Eatin’ Good in the Neighborhood
  • Playing Favorites

Just a couple of notes for two missable here. For A Starfish is Born, buy the drum from the Pawn shop as early as you can and give it to Globo and his dad in Blim City. Each time you complete a bounty, go speak with Globo’s dad after giving him the drum. You’ll need to keep doing this until you see Globo on TV. As for Gunning for Your Job, you will be given the choice of killing Douglas or Krubis. In order to not miss this, you must kill Douglas first in order to get Sweezy. When you have Sweezy, then you can go after Krubis.

There is an eighth missable, but it is seemingly a temporary one. This is “Mods Please Ban.” The reason it is missable is due to a bug. It is possible that certain enemy types will stop spawning post game. You can get around this by restarting checkpoints during enemy encounters while playing through the story or wait for a patch.

Warped

As you play through the bounties, there will be enemy bases that warp in. There will be a red message on screen that will tell you when this is happening. When you see this, make sure you kill all of the enemies in these and pick up the Warp Crystal inside of the base. You’re going to need 31 of these Warp Crystals in order to earn the “Seeing All The Sights” Achievement.

If you don’t have enough Warp Crystals, you can farm these post game.

Go ahead and fast travel to Zephyr Paradise > Jungle Clearing. From the warp door, look around to your right and you’ll see two green waterfalls side by side. Run toward those waterfalls and two Warp Bases will spawn.

  • Kill the enemies
  • Take the Warp Crystals
  • Go back through the warp door back to your house
  • Go through the warp door back to Jungle Clearing and repeat the process.

Glitched

*Update* “Mods Please Ban” has been patched as of January 13, 2023.

Unfortunately, the Achievement “Mods Please Ban.”

Playing Card to Get” was glitched, but has been patched and is now working correctly.

9-Torg will be the first boss you face. It’s a pretty basic fight. Keep firing on her while dodging her attacks. The laser she shoots can be dodged by jumping.

This has to be done here. It will not count if you do it later in the game.


G3 Graduation G3 Graduation

Defeat Douglas.

This is an unmissable story related Achievement.

Douglas can either be your second or third boss fight. However, in order to not miss the “Gunning for Your Job” Achievement, you have to fight him BEFORE you go after Krubis.

The beginning of the fight will have you shooting at him and taking cover. He can move around quickly, so try to keep a pillar in front of you for cover. Eventually, the floor panels will be electrified. You can avoid these by jumping or by pressing to dodge. There will also be a few Grunts that will spawn. Aim for the head and make sure to grab the shield recharge that they drop. As you get near the end of the health bar, whatever floor panels you’re standing on will become electrified, so you need to keep moving and grapple up with to get off the floor.

They’ll keep the same attacks when they are separated during the final battle. They’ll also have shorter health bars. Focus on one at a time while making sure to dodge the attacks of the others. Take them out one at a time.

MISSABLE

This is a multi-step Achievement that spans over the course of the entire story. Because of that, it is highly missable.

Basically, you need to give an NPC called Globo a drum and watch as her becomes famous for playing it. After giving him the drum, you need to go speak with his dad after completing a bounty and Globo’s story will progress a little more. I was able to begin this after completing the second bounty.

  • Go to the pawn shop and by the Drum for 78 Pesos.

Sit through the entirety of the really annoying countdown show on TV.

This can be earned while Gene is at your house.

Gene will be sitting on your couch watching TV. In order to earn this, you’re going to have to watch a show that features a count down with a robot. Unfortunately, there are a lot of shows that can play making this very random.

However, there is a somewhat “easier” way to get this. Instead of sitting there and watching every single show, pause the game and select “Last Checkpoint.” The game will reload and there will be a different show playing on TV. You can keep repeating this until the correct show plays. There are a lot of shows and some will repeat, but the one we need will eventually play, just stick with it.

When the show does play, set the controller down and wait for it to finish. Do not speak to anyone else in the house and do not leave the room. just stay there and let the ad finish. This will pop when the show ends and the next one begins.

I was able to get this after beating 9-Torg.

  • Movie Theater – Go inside and sit down in of the seats. Wait for the three NPCs in the first row to begin riffing on the movie that is playing. For the uninitiated, this is a reference to MST3K.

  • Skate Park – Enter the park and speak with the teens. Agree to their contest and you’ll need to skate around the park earning a score higher than 42,069. All you have to do here is grapple up to a grapple point, swing to a different one and swing to the rail and ride the rail to the end. At the end, swing to another grapple point and repeat that until the timer ends. As you swing to each point, use your jetpack and dash with to score more points. You’ll recharge your fuel completely while riding on the rail, so that shouldn’t be an issue. If you fail, you can speak to the teens and try again. When you beat the score, a Luglox chest will spawn and you will need to open it.

Find and open every Luglox chest.

There are 27 trading cards to find. All but two of them will be found in Luglox chests. As you hunt those down and open them all, you’ll end up with just about all of the cards. The remaining two can be found for sale in the pawn shop in Blim City.

As for the chests, there are 227 chests spread out across the different maps. Five of them are hidden. You won’t be able to open them all until you have acquired all of the weapons as they have special abilities that you will need to use in order to reach a majority of the boxes.

None of the boxes are missable, so this can be cleaned up postgame.

You can check how many Lugloxes you have for each area by highlighting the destinations in the Bounty 5K.

Pressing in the Right Stick will show you your waypoint, but it will also tell you if there are any chests nearby. There will be a blue line on your radar in the bottom left corner of the screen pointing in the direction of the nearest chest.

Mods Please Ban Mods Please Ban

Unlock every post in the Bounty Hunter forums.

POTENTIALLY MISSABLE

This has been marked missable because some of the enemies stop spawning post game. This is a bug. Until this is patched in the future, it is currently missable for some. If this happens, you will need to start a new game and finish the post requirements before finishing the story.

You can restart checkpoints when you encounter certain enemy types during the story in order to farm them. The enemies that commonly glitch out post game are Hunks, Greebles, Jasons and Melee Murks. As for discovering locations, all you have to do there is enter the area. You’ll automatically discover all areas while you collect all of the Luglox chests.

The forums have been patched, but the tracker is still glitched. You’re going to have to start a new game after the patch in order for the forums to unlock correctly. However, this still isn’t completely fixed as the tracking is glitched.

The forums will become unlocked as you progress through the game. In order to unlock posts in the forums, you need to complete challenges. There are challenges associated with each post. They can be viewed in the Pause menu under forums at the very bottom of the posts.

This has been patched and is working correctly as of January 13, 2023. The required number of kills has also been increased with the patch.
