'Hardbarian' bug
Hello,

I've unlocked every achievement except the Hardbarian and according to that achievement, I should be able able to unlock it by accomplishing every other achievements. I've purchased everything on my save slot 1 (which was my first playthrough in Normal) and save slot 2 (which was my second playthrough in Insane). How do I unlock Hardbarian? Please help.

Thank you.

UPDATE:
With the help of other Steam community members, my problem has been solved. Please read the posts below if you're having the same problem. It might help ;)

Same here. Everything in the shop has been bought.

Any support, please? We've got three people here--those who I am pretty sure enjoyed the game--that worked hard enough to get all the achievements.

There is at least one thing you need to buy that isn't in the shop: the 4th slot. Also: there are some things in the hero section that you need to scroll to see. I missed those until the very end of my first playthrough.

Have purchased the Golden Lute and the 4th party slot. Still no achievement...

I knew that prior to making this thread, but thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Like Bridger09, I have bought the 4th party slot, Song of Defence (maxed it out), and Golden Lute as well. I've also unlocked all the units (only some are maxed out) maxed out every perk for Hero and Town,but I have not survived for 3 minutes in Survival nor have I ran for 3 miles in Escape in my 2nd, Insane save slot. However, I have ran 3 miles in Escape and survived for 3 minutes in Survival in my first, Normal save slot.

ok i know what you have to do, you have to unlock EVERYTHING in 1 save slot, all the character upgrades, all the hero upg, all the Town upg, that also means doing survival and runinnig for the turtle and meatboy characters, when you upgraded literally EVERYTHING ten you'll get you're harboiledbarian achievement:)) i recomend doing day 2 in insane with the dark knights its fast money espescially if you can beat the second round of boses who arent that hard stun and dmg powerup and kill 1-2 before the sunt goes away then just kite them volcano ones, hope it helped good luck:)

I did unlock everything, just haven't maxed out all my units. That's all I haven't done.
Finieous Aug 18, 2014 @ 5:57am 
You must max everything out. There can't be anything left to purchase, anywhere.

In other words: you're only a hardbarian if gold serves no further purpose.

I have maxed out every unit, every character upgrade, all town upgrades and have purchased the 4th slot (so that everything says "sold out") and still don't have the achievement :/

You might need to have all the other achievements as well as buying everything. I'm not sure about that, but the guide does indicate it. You'll definitely need them under a single save slot, though... so if you unlocked the Steam achievements in a normal playthrough, but haven't on an insane playthrough you're not going to get the hardbarian achievement. Steam will show you having (for example) the survival mode achievement, but it won't count for hardbarian if it isn't in the same save slot. Since some of the achievements are insane-mode only, you'll want to focus on that slot.

As far as I could tell, the survival and distance modes are the same... they don't seem more difficult in insane mode.

For the sake of clarification, perhaps the description of the achievement should be changed to "buy ALL the things"...

It should unlock once you bought every Hero, Town and Unit Upgrade (including those that are liberated after you finish the game once, meaning the very last level of all units and some of Brad's upgrades, if I'm not mistaken).

It isn't necessary to have all the other achievements. The last I unlocked was "I Am Legend".

That's cool. I wasn't sure... I remember hardbarian being the last one for me.

As Fred says, you definitely need to play past the finish. New upgrades become available, and must be purchased.

Solved! Thanks to Finieous, Fred, and Kibaro for feedbacks and suggestions, I finally got the achievement. All I had to do was max out all the units, along with doing everything the people above has said (except for re-doing all the achievements in a second save slot) and unlocking all other achievements.

Thanks, Steam Community. I won't close this because some other player might stumble the same problem and might want to ask something.

Glad we could help, man.
