100% achievement guide for Scarlet Nexus

 
 

Introduction

 
First things first, getting all of the achievements will require two playthroughs as some of them are reliant on playing as both characters on the same save file. While there are different difficulty options from easy to hard, none of the achievements are gated off or are reliant on a certain difficulty being selected so you can play at your own preference. 
 
“Story Related – Playthrough 1” has an achievement that contains a minor spoiler, but these are unmissable so ignore if necessary.

Best of luck. 
 
 

Story Related – Playthrough 1

 
When starting a new game you will have the choice of playing as Kasane or Yuito. Kasane has faster but slightly weaker attacks while Yuito hits harder but is marginally slower. No character is particularly better than the other. Regardless of who you pick, simply playing through either characters story will unlock the following achievements:

After defeating the final boss and completing a story line, you’ll have a “EX New Game” option in the main menu. Selecting this will prompt you to upload your cleared game data which retains all your levels, items etc from your previous playthrough. When doing so select the other playable character and complete their story. Doing so will get you the following:

Red Strings for Two

 
Reached the ending of both Yuito’s and Kasane’s story. 
Unlocked upon completing the game a second time using both characters. 
 
 

Bonds, Presents and a lot of cluttered desks

 
Playing through the game you’ll have the opportunity to talk to your teammates and increase your Bond Level with them. Higher Bond Levels increase the effects of what their abilities can do and will give you access to Combo and Guardian Visions etc. Bond Levels can be increased by buying your squad presents from the vendor (same guy you save your game at). Note that only certain people accept certain presents, which can be seen when looking at the present you want to buy: 
 
– Blank portrait = Wont accept present 
– Coloured portrait = Will accept present 
– Yellow heart = Likes present 
– Red heart = Loves present 
 
In Phase 9 you’ll gain access to every character as a teammate regardless of who you’re playing as. The following achievements will be unlocked over both your previous playthroughs as they require a certain Bond Level in each characters story. If you’ve missed a required Bond Level in your first playthrough don’t worry, after finishing the game with both characters you can freely switch between Kasane and Yuito so you can raise all teammates to max Bond Level no problem. 
 
The following can be unlocked via increasing your team’s Bond Levels and viewing their bond episode:

SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Gift Giving Freak

 
Gave all gifts to all allies. *Does not include add-ons. 
 
 

Combat

 
All of the below can be earned relatively easily from combat encounters. Some may require the difficulty to be changed for the quickest results. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Fierce Psychokinesis User

 
Threw 100 objects with psychokinesis. 
You’ll earn this achievement very quickly, the real challenge would be to not get it. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Seasoned Psychokinesis User

 
Performed 50 successful Special Object Follow-Up Attacks. 
Some objects used with your Psychokinesis have special prompts when used, usually something like pressing a button. Use 50 of these to unlock the achievement. Note however the prompt but be successful for it to count. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

The Place Beyond the Pain

 
Used the SAS over 100 times. 
Another achievement that should be gotten fairly quickly, just use your team abilities. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Power of Observation

 
Successfully performed 20 perfect dodges. 
Perform a dodge just before an enemy attack hits you. You’ll know if its triggered as time will slow down for a moment. Perform 20 of these to get the achievement. Note that Tsugumi’s Clairvoyance increases the time frame for a perfect dodge to be triggered. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Other Nemesis

 
Used the Brain Crush on Others 20 times. 
Earned by depleting the Brain Crush bar (yellow bar) on enemies. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Cunning Brain Smash

 
Defeated 3 enemies at the same time with Brain Crush. 
Deplete the Crush Gauge of three enemies and then Brain Crush one (it should kill all enemies who are able to be Brain Crushed). Hanabi’s Pyrokinesis and heavy attacks with Kagero’s Invisibility were what I found to be the quickest way to deplete the bars but use whatever works for you. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Trusted Ally

 
Initiated a guardian vision for the first time. 
Once you reach Bond Level 2 with an ally, they have a chance to block an incoming attack for you. This is random so it may take some time, for the best results have someone in your squad who’s at Bond Level 2. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Helping Hand

 
Revived by an ally for the first time. 
Relatively random achievement, when you die theres a chance a squad member will revive you. It seems the likelihood of this happening is related to Bond Level so its probably better to try this later in the game. Just set the difficulty to Hard and let yourself get killed a few times. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Friendship

 
Revived allies 5 times. 
Set the difficulty to Hard and survive while your allies are killed, use Kagero’s Invisibility to stealth revive your squad. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

You Are Not Alone

 
Saved inside the brain field for the first time. 
In Phase 4 you unlock the Brain Field ability, if this is used for too long it can instantly kill you. Your allies are able to “save” you by increasing the timer before you die. This likelihood goes up with Bond Level but it seems to happen relatively reliably anyway. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Master of the Psionic Space

 
Finished off 50 enemies with the Brain Field. 
Simply kill 50 enemies while your Brain Field is active. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

One Lost in Madness

 
Ran out of time inside the brain field. 
Activate your Brain Field and wait until the timer expires, causing you to die (This cant be done when you first get it in Phase 4).  
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Brain Field Expert

 
Raised the EXP bonus to the maximum. 
The max EXP bonus you can get is 1.80 but this can only be achieved while using Brain Drive. For the most efficient results try to find a large cluster of enemies and use Brain Drive to kill them as quick as possible. If 1.80 isn’t reached, run around the area in search of more enemies to kill. Its relatively easy and should only take a couple of tries. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Receiver of Protection

 
Initiated Assault Visions 20 times. 
Once you reach Bond Level 4 with an ally, they can use “Assault Vision” at random to prompt an option for them to attack. This should unlock on the 20th use. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Power of Nexus

 
Activated 4 different Combo Visions in 1 combo. 
Once you reach Bond Level 3 with a teammate, you can trigger a Combo Vision for them to attack on your command. To unlock the achievement, trigger this with 4 of your allies back to back. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Link Expert

 
Activated all Combo Visions. 
Use every persons Combo Vision at least once. You’ll need to play Kasane to use Yuito’s and vice versa. Here is a full character list: 
 
Yuito 
Gemma 
Luka 
Hanabi 
Tsugumi 
Kasane 
Arashi 
Kagero 
Kyoka 
Shiden
 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Wheels Gone Wild

 
Defeated 5 enemies with 1 bus. 
After unlocking the area Kunad Highway, proceed to the Junction (second area). At the actual junction on the map there will be a bus you can ride for a short time. There are 5 enemies in front of the bus but they can be a little hard to hit. If you miss any, U-turn around and proceed down the road where an additional 5-6 enemies will be, there is little room for them to dodge so it shouldn’t be too hard. If you mess up just reload the area and the bus will respawn. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Mighty Soldier

 
Defeated 1,000 enemies. 
Exactly what it says on the tin, just kill every enemy you see and it should drop near the end of the playthrough. 
 
 

Misc

 
Finally we have the achievements that don’t really fit anywhere else in this guide so I’ll place them here.

Everyone’s Ally

 
Completed a quest for the first time. 
Around the games hub areas, such as outside the OSF building and the streets nearby, you will occasionally come across NPCs that have a white diamond above their head when approached. These NPCs will give you a side quest for you to complete when spoken too. To actually complete a side quest once the requirements have been met, go to the pause menu under Story -> Quests and select report completion.

SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Kins Millionaire

 
Collected over 200 thousand kins. 
Despite not actually requiring a million, just collect 200 thousand kins over your whole playthrough. You don’t need to have the entire value at once so don’t worry about saving all 200 thousand. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Suppressor of All Enemies

 
Completed the Enemy Compendium. *Does not include add-ons. 
Unlocked sometime into your second characters playthrough, it unlocks when you’ve unlocked all enemy entries in your compendium. There aren’t any “hidden” enemies that require you to look for them so as long as you kill most things you see you should be fine. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Protect!

 
Stopped in front of the OSF poster in the hideout. 
When Arashi joins your team, a poster of her will appear in the workout area of your hideout, position your character near the poster looking at it and keep them still for a few seconds. The positioning can be a little specific so try different distances from the poster until it unlocks. 
 
SCARLET NEXUS - 100% Achievement Guide 

Knowledge of the Past

 
Collected all Mysterious Text Data. 
In Phase 9 of Yuito’s story you will visit the Old OSF Hospital. Scattered through the area are 10 Mysterious Text Data that appear on the map as items but visually are yellow cubes. Collect all 10 and the achievement will unlock.

Thank you for taking the time to go through this and I’m happy if this guide helped in anyway.
