Wax Off!!!!!

#1 Posted by YoungBuck (207 posts) -

... Is a bitch to get. Over 30 minutes of trying and I got it. I don't know how many times I came close and I died because something spawned under me. 

it was worth it tho. Phobia is next

I got it, it was somewhat difficult, though the treaty achievement gave me fits, I couldn't get the damn 30 zones for such a long time. Right now it looks like I'm going to have the most problems with beating sequence.

I finally got it after 3 hours lol.

#4 Posted by Warihay (478 posts) -

Yea, definatly took a while. I had three times where I had 99% but died. God I was mad. I finally got it though. Now I have to work on on the sequence stuff and I got the full 200.

I got all but two Geometry wars 2 achievements so far...one is getting to the end of the sequence and the other is called Smile......i dunno what the hell i gotta do to get that one.

I finally got Wax off! Took like an hour.

The key (for me) was not to leave small (1 or 2 segment) gaps when going on the second lap, getting rid of extra gates when possible,
and crowd control. Lots of big flowing loops to get everybody bunched up.

That game is super addicting. The very quick level restarts help.

Yeah, this took me a long time. I don't like that mode much anyway but that achievement just made it worse for me :( I am so glad I eventually got it though.

I still haven't got it. Several times I've hit 99% and then died.

Me too. I kept getting 29. Took me like an hour.

I've got the same 10 of 12. Smile is probably the worst, since you have to beat specific levels in sequence, and if you miss one, you might as well start over.

I got Wax Off after a few tries. You just have to learn when to leave the walls and destroy enemies while doing so, then going back to finish.

Wax Off just gets bloody NUTS once the enemies start to pick up.  Scarily enough, I've only gotten my highest scores while trying to get it, it's like it's easier to kill stuff when it's in my way rather than when I'm actually trying to score points.

#12 Posted by bizsumpark182 (361 posts) -

I've tried at least 20 times today and still haven't got it. The highest I've gotten is to 75%.

Mr. Miyagi having trouble with the Wax off achievement?  That just doesn't seem right.

Haha, nice one.

I've only tried this a few times, got around 80% before I ran into an enemy. Just so everyone knows, you can leave the wall for a bit and then come back to it - makes things much easier.

Took me around a hour, with alot of 90%'s :s

I have it now. I got it about a minute after posting I didn't have it.

I've tried for so long. I can get to like 92% but then fail.  Same goes for Treaty.  I get 26 out of 30 and it seems at that point enemies spawn on top of me...

Took me like 2 hours.

Anyone have some good tips? I've gotten to 90+ percent many times, but I just can't finish it off. It's so frustrating!!

I too would like to know if anybody has any tips for beating this. I have been at the 95 to 99 percent range all the time but I can never seem to get the full 100

As soon as you begin, go straight down, hit the wall, and speed along them to get the first part 'wax on' done. Don't drag yourself along the wall, because that slows you down, just run alongside the wall scraping your side against it. You should have wax-on pretty much before anything has spawned that will give you trouble. Then continue around for as long as you can before something blocks your path, dodge around it and find your way quickly back to the wall and continue around. It doesn't matter if you miss a spot, you'll just have to come back to it later. Basically the trick seems to be to do it as fast as possible. while you're dodging around blocks, try and hit any conveniently located gates to give yourself a bit more freedom. It only took me like 20 minutes to get.

Ha you said wax off but there really is no strategy to it just really have to keep on trying

#24 Posted by spiceninja (3052 posts) -

It took me about an hour and half to get.

Just wait until you get to Smile.

I found Treaty way harder.

#27 Posted by kmdrkul (3476 posts) -

Wax Off and the two sequence based achievements are my only ones left.  Personally I thought Phobia and Treaty were really easy (first tries on both.)  Rebound was pretty hard because I thought too much about it; once I just played normally I got it pretty easily without even thinking of it.
