Get a total of 2000 points in Battle of the Birds!
Most of the main Acts can provide high point gains without items or badges from other areas. Train Rush is not recommended for gaining points in this regard due to its generally small point pool, but be sure to get a decent score on it anyway.
Defeat any boss with the 1-hit hero badge equipped!
There are four viable bosses in the game, and they are found in the acts Down with the Mafia!, Award Ceremony, Toilet of Doom, and The Finale (Your Contract has Expired does not count for unknown reasons). It is recommended to fight the Mafia Boss unless you personally find one of the others easier, as he has simple attack patterns and low health. Further strategies for each boss are found on the achievement's page.
In the bedroom of Hat Kid's Spaceship, where the access to Subcon Forest can be found, there is a big pile of pillows. The player will need the Ice Hat to dive into the pillows and find the secret hideout. Once the player obtains the Ice Hat, a small pillar of light appears where the player needs to dive.
Make it through Dead Bird Studio without being seen at all!
The player must be very careful when getting this achievement, as they need not only to remain uncaught but also to not accidentally wander into the C.A.W Agents' visions at all. The Ice Hat is highly recommended since its ability grants invisibility from the birds' sight, and the Time Stop Hat can be exceptionally useful for avoiding mobile birds if you have it.
Never meet Mustache Girl in the first act. One can accomplish this by jumping over the wall immediately to the left when you start and completing the level normally without activating events with Mustache Girl.
The collected time pieces must be new ones (Time Pieces from mods not completed before count).
The achievement can be simply earned by enabling Co-op 3 times at the end of a level, right before collecting the Time Piece.
Prepare to Die
Clear All Objectives In a Single Death Wish!
All three objectives can be completed over multiple attempts. Peace and Tranquility can be used if you don't care about legitimacy, as beating a challenge after activating it will count as beating all 3 objectives.
When a holographic sticker is spawned, a message will appear saying the name of the act it's in. With the Compass Badge, a rainbow arrow will point towards the sticker, overriding everything but Snatcher Coins. However, this arrow is shaky and vague, so be careful.
Discover a secret food combination!
List of combinations can be found on the Food page.
