Spoiler Free Achievement Guide

A guide to obtaining all the achievements in Stasis.
All spoilers (except the achievement names) are hidden using [spoiler] tags. Hover your mouse over the black areas to reveal what is hidden.

Are you just looking for help with the Suicide achievements?
When I completed Stasis, I found I had all the achievements except for the nine suicide achievements. The [undocumented] trick for getting suicide achievements in Stasis is that you need touse the correct inventory item on yourself twice within a few seconds. There's no feedback the first attempt (not even a 'that didn't work' bark), but on the next attempt you'll get a cut scene (sometimes literally :-) and the achievement.

Armed with this key piece of information, you may want to go back and find the achievements yourself (the devs did a good job of making the missable achievements guessable from their names), but in case you don't want to (or worry that you don't have a save in the correct place) this guide will fill you in.

Achievement Types
There are three types of achievements in Stasis:
  • Plot
    With one exception, you get these by simply playing through to the end of the game.

  • Death
    You get these by being killed by an environmental or external agency

  • Suicide
    You get these by using inventory items on yourself

There are 9 achievements of each type, for a total of 27 achievements. All achievements can be obtained in a single playthrough. I recommend you keep plenty of saves as many achievements are blocked after leaving an area, solving a puzzle, or consuming an item.
Plot Achievements
With the exception of 'A History Lesson', you get these automatically as you progress through the game. As long as you finish the game, you won't miss any of these.

Jupiter Dies
Chase the cat along the catwalk
Jump down from the crashed train
Why Are There Methane Tanks Under The Crew Quarters?
Explode the methane tanks under the crew quarters without dying
Subject is Alive, Deceased, Alive
Survive the spinal operation
Set the oxygen farms on fire
Remove the battery that is keeping the pregnant hybrids alive
Kill / get the eye from the hybrid that falls from the ceiling
A History Lesson

I Love You Ellen
Finish the game
Death Achievements
Use the High Speed Neural Drill on the Fluid Storage Tanks on the starting level north of the lift WITHOUT having first lowered the tank pressure via the valve in the preceding room.

This can be obtained in any of the following places:

This is a spoiler free guide. If you leave a comment below, please use the [spoiler] tags tag for anything remotely plot or puzzle related, and remember that questions themselves can reveal much about the game.

Corrections, grammer checks, etc are welcome.

Also "Slug Gun Fun" comes before "I Have No Mouth, But I Must Scream"

Also timeline wise, "It Burns" comes before "Hangman".

Slug Gun Fun - Think this might need to be done on the power pad on the raised walkway after destroying the patroling robot.

Where exactly can I get the Slug Gun Fun achievement? I missed and I do not have the green idea when I get it. That's all I have left.

@BladesaAndRazors - You get the guts after you stomp it (and get the achievement)...

Stomp is wrong - you get hybrid guts .

Great guide, thanks for the hard work. However, there are a couple things that can improve it.
1. Some of the achievements are out of order. If interested, I can elaborate.
2. For Slug Gun Fun, the first power pad that you come across (next to the toolbox to get the item) doesn't work for the achievement.

Thank you so much for this guide! I am currently replaying the first two hours or so to get the remaining achievements. If I wouldn't have seen this guide I would have needed to replay everything. However, there's one thing I noticed. To kill yourself with specific items you don't have to use them three times, they worked for me after two times. Just a little heads up, don't know if this was changed in a later update, but that's how it worked for me. :)

Great guide, thank you.

With the help of this guide I was able to get 100% of the achievements in a single playthrough. Thanks! :steamhappy:
