THAT Achievement.
You all know the one I'm talking about. that achievement that requires 10,000 dinos sent home when the game realistically only requires anywhere from 5000-8000 to complete, 25 other achievements and everything. I need some help. Is there any easy way to do this or do I need to really spend 3 weeks grinding on random maps?

According to AStats, you can do all the achievements in around 11 hours of total gametime.

So just keep playing, it will unlock eventually.

Would be nice if someone could tell us which level is the best for grinding.

Actually, immediately after posting this I decided to play every level over from the beginning, getting three steaks. I got to about 2-5 before going to bed and the number of dinos I sent home went from about 7300 to about 8500, so I guess just play each level over from the beginning.

At least this way it's less grindy. :P

Was going to say... If the game has 5,000-8,000 dinod "sent home" in one playthrough and the achievement is 10,000, then just play through the game again... Because 5k-8k times 2 is 10k-16k...

Well, the downside is that I played through the game, and got triple steak on every level, and still had only 4,500 dinosaurs killed. I am grinding the 3-19 level over and over while watching tv shows.

yeah, but the first reaction to this achievement is "oh, I have to grind dinos", which is kind of the opposite of that. It was only after I calmed down and and thought about it that I arrived at the same conclusion as you.

I've done the same thing as Walker, grinding level 3-19 over and over again. It takes 5-10 minutes or so per game (should time it) and you get 70 dinos (+ few). It has to be quite a good level for this, as I got to around 4500 in the first play through and 70 dinos/level * 60 levels = 4200 dinos, so it has to be at least close to the average.

I'd also like to point that you only have to put one set of snowball throwers in the upper left corner and the rest of the dinos can be handled with boom barrels, most of the time 2- or 3-steaking the level and getting around 100 coins, so you don't have to grind miners to purchase everything at the shop.

Still, I would think there was a better level with lots of those small dinos somewhere. I'd appreciate a faster level to grind.

I never thought of that! I only ever went in with a bunch of the shock powerups because of the "I have the power" achievement. I didn't think of using a snowpher kids to compliment my powerups on 3-19.

I'm playing 1-13 on loop, it's a level with only compies, there are about ~72 and I can clear it in 2.5 minutes precisely from the time I hit replay until I can hit replay again. so I can get 5k in roughly 2.9 hours of play time, I have 7.3 hours now and i'm roughly at 5k/10k so I'll see where I'm at when I hit 10.2

update: I'm now averaging about 2:10 on 1-13. at this rate I'll easily get 5k in under 2.9 hours

final update: was consistently getting 1100/30 minutes | 2200/1hr, started working on getting the rest of my 5k+ kills (guessing between 5000 and 5500) and it took me 2.4 hours according to steam to get those kills. i was averaging about 2:05-2:10 near the end so that means there is roughly 76-77 compies on that level

Level 3-16 takes 2 mins 30 seconds and get about 56 kills.

The 10,000 kills would be fine if there was other modes like an endless, or a harder mode. Was fun playing threw it, now I'm just going for that last achievement as I watch anime.

I am done :D.

3 to 4 hours of that level finnaly got me that last achievement, 12 hours played. On the next game on my list to get achievements. lol

Got to try 1-13, it sounds promising.
Mat2PL Jun 22, 2013 @ 4:27am 
all levels 3 "steaked", and barely over 5,000 dinos killed, last missing achievement

I'll have to check out this 1-13 level.

Yeah, it is good. You start out with 5 cocos, take 2 DJ's and 2 Boom Barrels into your inventory. Place first DJ where they spawn, next DJ right next to it.
Boom Barrel the Dino Explosion and the Spawn after.
Done.
Is really quick and simple.
