Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2 – Achievement Guide


Well guys, after about a 2-3 weeks of on/off play with Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2 on Xbox Live I’ve finally completed ALL 15 achievements (except for 2 – Game Over and Wax Off, they are pains in the ***!).

So I wanted to share with you how I was able to do each one and if any of you have any good tips of ideas for completing the Game Over and Wax Off achievements I’m all ears.

Magpie (15 GS) – Collect 500 geoms in a single game.

This one was easy for me, I did this one in the Evolved game mode as its not timed so I used that to my advantage.

Unlocked All Modes (25 GS) – Unlock all game modes.

Easy. Self Explainatory. Just finish 3 games in a mode to unlock the next one.

Millionaire (15 GS) – Score at least 1,000,000 points in all single player modes.

Again, easy!

Rebound (15 GS) – Destroy 75 enemies in a game of Deadline using bullets bounced off of gates.

This one was a little tricky, but you have to do this one in deadline. Just take it easy collecting as many geoms as you can until the gates appear. Once they do just keep pumping those bullets at it to get rebound kills.

Treaty (15 GS) – Activate 30 zones in King without firing a shot, or destroying any enemies.

This one was very hard. Its basically just trial and error with a lot of luck. Just keep practicing is all I can say and keep moving!

Slalom (15 GS) – Chain together 5 gates in 5 seconds. Crossing at least one gate every second.

You have to do this one in pacifist mode, no other way to do this one. I just waited until there were about 8-10 gates on the screen, then i just whipped it into gear and went through 5 of the closest ones together.

Wax On (15 GS) – Rub your ship along all four arena walls in Pacifism. (sexual innuendo anybody?!?!)

This was easy, just remember you can come off the walls whenever you need to.

Wax Off (15 GS) (incomplete!)- Perform the Wax On achievement twice in a single game.


Surf (15 GS) – Dodge 8 lines of enemies in Waves without firing a shot, or destroying any enemies.

This was just practice for me, but once you get into the rhythm of the waves its quite an easy one.

Phobia (15 GS) – Score 1,000 points in Waves without collecting any geoms.

Just stay as far away from enemies as possible.

Game Over (15 GS) – Reach the end of sequence.

I know how to do this one, but its very hard. It will just be more and more practice i’d say to complete this one!
