  • Easy "Death On The Battlefield" and "Mad Destroyer" achievements

    Using Yun-Seong is the quickest way to get the "Death On The Battlefield" and "Mad Destroyer" achievements. He is the easiest character to land blows efficiently enough to at least cause Soul Crushes.

  • Easy "Equal Skill And Power" achievement

    To get the "Equal Skill And Power" achievement, have Siegfried's fighting style leveled to at least 4. To do this, attach the following equipment:

      Helmet: Hero's Band
      Mask: Hannya Mask
      Neckless/Cape: Embroidered Cape
      Shoulders: Nightmare Pauldron
      Undergarment: Usurper's Suit
      Shirt: Executioner's Breastplate
      Gloves: Iron Gauntlets
      Pants: Paladin's Fauld
      Socks: Shinobi Tabi
      Boots: Lusca Sabatons
      Weapon: Take Off (surfboard)

    Once you have all of those items attached, go to "Skills", and add the following:

      Auto Counter C
      Double-Edged Sword
      Soul Gauge Boost B
      Auto Impact B

    Save and exit, and you will get a message stating that you got the achievement. The newly created hero will look rather bad and can be deleted after the achievement is received.

    Another way to get this achievement easily is to have Raphael's skill leveled to 3. Note: You may have to play through the Tower Of Lost Souls to unlock some items.

      Helmet: Hero Band
      Eyeware: None
      Neck: Guardian's Neck Cloth
      Shoulder: Pauldrons
      Undergarments: Protective Tatoo
      Upper Body: Paladin's Curiass
      Arm: Engraved Gauntlets
      Lower Body: Guimian Yecha
      Ankle: Shinobi Tabi
      Leg: Warthog Boots
      Weapon: Estoc
      Skill: Willpower
      Skill: HP Drain B
      Skill: Nullify Counter C
      Skill: Impact Heal

    Using Raphael or your created fighter, you can make the fighter look better by changing the entire base color set to black and have the headband's second color, the upper body's third and fourth color, and the lower body's second and fourth color white. Add white unkempt hair and eyes for additional effect.

  • Easy "Scorpion's Sting" achievement

    To perform a Critical Finish, get your opponent's Soul Gauge down to blinking red status, then hit him or her with a powerful attack. If they try to block it, they will get a red glowing ring around them for one or two seconds. When this happens, quickly press LB. If done correctly, you will see a short intermission sequence of your character beating your opponent.

  • Easy "The Controller" and "Wild Run to Tragedy" achievements

    Successfully complete Story mode with Siegfried to unlock the Soul Calibur (final form) and Nightmare to unlock the Soul Edge (final form). You can do this on the Normal or Hard difficulty. When you unlock these weapons, you will be able to purchase them for 30,000 gold each.
