From playing Dead Rising for 14 hours straight to not getting hit once in Megaman 10, join us and our aching gaming thumbs as we take a look at the hardest video game achievements that are nearly impossible to unlock.
10. My Kung Fu Is Stronger – Mortal Kombat
2011’s fighter reboot Mortal Kombat contains one of the most time draining, thumb destroying video game achievements ever created. To unlock this achievement you have to do the following with all 27 characters:
- 100 fatalities
- 100 victories
- 150 X-rays
- 10,000 litres of blood spilled
- 24 hours played per character
To pull this achievement off without codes or cheats, you’ll be playing for more than 672 hours! That’s just shy of one month of non-stop fatality inducing, ‘get over here’, whoopsie, bicycle kicking Mortal Kombat mayhem!
9. The Floor Is Lava – Overwatch
The Floor Is Lava achievement on Overwatch is a real nasty piece of work. To unlock it you have to get three killing blows as Lucio while wall riding without dying once during the match. The easiest way to do this is to go for environmental kills on a stage like Lijiang Tower. The Garden and Night Market maps both have pits that you can push your enemies into. If you manage to knock three opponents off at once, immediately wall slide and wait till the kill feed confirms the eliminations.
8. Shenanigans – Cloudberry Kingdom
This is a fairly straight forward achievement to unlock. All you have to do is complete chapter 7. The catch? Well chapter 7 includes level 319, also known as the ‘impossible level’. Take a look at the above footage for a taste of what you’ll be dealing with.
7. 7 Day Survivor – Dead Rising
To unlock this achievement in Dead Rising you have to first complete the game in Overtime Mode to be able to play in Infinity Mode. Once Infinity Mode is unlocked you can start the gaming headache that is the ‘7 Day Survivor’ achievement. To do this, you have to survive seven in-game days, which is the equivalent of 14 hours of gameplay. Oh and you can’t save your progress, so you have to complete this fiendish achievement in one sitting. Your reward? Bragging rights and a pair of love heart boxer shorts that will appear in the security room. SO. WORTH. IT.
6. Bladder of Steel – Rockband 2
Are you willing to dehydrate yourself and waste an entire school day’s worth of time to unlock this achievement? To add this bad boy to your trophy case you have to finish Rockband 2’s Endless Setlist 2 without failing a song or pausing the game. That’s completing 84 songs, taking around 6 hours and 15 minutes without hitting pause once to relieve your aching bladder.
After your carpal tunnel surgery just show the doc a screen cap of this achievement and it’ll be all worth while.
