Into The Breach Archievements Guide <WIP>

Well, to start off this subforum we could go with one of the things players might struggle more with; unlock tokens. The idea is that everyone suggests the ways they did it or think that could be archieved, and anything about them, for it to then be edited in the OP to eventually have an accesible guide for anyone! General guidelines would also be welcome :D

I'll try starting with the structure (wip as well) and some simple ones:

Sustainable Energy
Finish 3 Corporate Islands without dropping below 4 Grid Power

Engineering Dropout
Finish 3 Corporate Islands without powering a Weapon Modification

Best of the Best
Have 3 Pilots at maximum level simultaneously

I'm getting too old for this...
Have an individual Pilot fight the final battle 3 times across multiple games

Island Secure
Complete 1st Corporate Island with the Rift Walkers squad

Unbreakable
Have Mech Armor absorb 5 damage in a single battle with the Steel Judoka squad

Glittering C-Beam
Hit 4 enemies with a single laser with the Zenith Guard squad

Scorched Earth
End a battle with 12 tiles on Fire with the Flame Behemoths squad

Loot Boxes!
Open 5 Time Pods in a single game with a Random squad

Perfect Strategy
Collect 10 Perfect Island rewards across all games

Lightning War
Finish the first 2 Corporate Islands in under 30 minutes with the Blitzkrieg squad

Victory
Beat the game (any length)

Come Together
Unlock 6 additional Pilots

Pacifist
Kill less than 3 enemies in a single battle with the Frozen Titans squad

Immovable Objects
Block 100 Vek across all games

Hard Victory
Beat the game on Hard (any length)

Humanity's Savior
Rescue 100,000 civilians across all games

There is No Try
Finish 3 Corporate Islands without failing an objective

Chronophobia
Finish 3 Corporate Islands and destroy every Time Pod discovered

Perfect Strategy
Collect 10 Perfect Island rewards across all games

Adaptable Victory
Beat the game at least once per length (2, 3, & 4 Islands secured)

Squads Victory
Beat the game with 4 different Squads (any length)

Complete Victory
Beat the game with all 10 primary Squads (any length)

Emerging Technologies
Unlock a new Mech Squad

Friends in High Places
Spend 50 Reputation across all games

The Defenders
Finish a Corporate Island without taking Building Damage

Trusted Equipment
Finish 3 Corporate Islands without equipping any new Pilots or weapons

Ramming Speed
Kill an enemy 5 or more tiles away with a Dash Punch with the Rift Walkers squad

Unwitting Allies
Have 4 enemies die from enemy fire in a single battle with the Steel Judoka squad

Trick Shot
Kill 3 enemies with a single attack of the Janus Cannon with the Frozen Titans squad

Immortal
Finish 4 Corporate Islands without a Mech being destroyed at the end of a battle with the Hazardous Mechs squad

Overkill
Deal 8 damage to a unit with a single attack with the Hazardous Mechs squad

Lucky Start
Beat the game (any length) without spending any Reputation with a Random squad

Change the Odds
Raise Grid Defense to 30% or more with a Random squad

Mech Specialist
Beat the game with 3 of the same Mech in a Custom squad

Flight Specialist
Beat the game with 3 flying Mechs in a Custom squad

Backup Batteries
Earn or buy 10 Grid Power on a single Corporate Island

Good Samaritan
Earn 9 Reputation from missions on a single Corporate Island

Distant Friends
Encounter a familiar face

Mass Displacement
Push 3 enemies with a single attack with the Steel Judoka squad

Quantum Entanglement
Teleport a unit 4 tiles away with the Flame Behemoths squad

Get Over Here
Kill an enemy by pulling it into yourself with the Zenith Guard squad

Field Promotion
Have a Pilot reach maximum level

Watery Grave
Drown 3 enemies in water in a single battle with the Rift Walkers squad

Untouchable
Finish a Corporate Island without taking Mech Damage (Repaired damage is still damage)

Stormy Weather
Deal 12 damage with Electric Smoke in a single battle with the Rusting Hulks squad

- A good method to get this one is to do so with the upgrade to Electric Smoke increasing its damage by +1, and apply it in a battle full of weak enemies. For me, the best place to do this is in the bossfight with the "Goo", as it'll divide several times into weaker and weaker versions of itself that are semi mandatory to kill in the mission objective and are well dealt with Smoke, as well as some of the other Vek in the fight.

Perfect Battle
Take no Mech or Building Damage in a single battle with the Rusting Hulks squad (Repaired damage is still damage)

Overpowered
Overpower your Power Grid twice by earning or buying Power when it is full with the Rusting Hulks squad

- The two points of overpowering do not need to be consecutive, so don't be afraid of risking a hit if you'll get it back later. It's pretty easy to get it in a sweep at the first Island's store if you spend all your reputation in more power and have gone for missions awarding it.

This is Fine
Have 5 enemies on Fire simultaneously with the Flame Behemoths squad

Shield Mastery
Block damage with a Shield 4 times in a single battle with the Zenith Guard squad

Cryo Expert
Shoot the Cryo-Launcher 4 times in a single battle with the Frozen Titans squad

Hold the Line
Block 4 emerging Vek in a single turn with the Blitzkrieg squad

- Most likely you'll need to use the Boulder Mech's rock, which can serve as a static blocker added to the rest of your squad.

Healing
Heal 10 Mech Health in a single battle with the Hazardous Mechs squad

Class Specialist
Beat the game with 3 different Mechs from the same class in a Custom squad

Perfect Island
Do not fail any objective on a single Corporate Island

Thanks to everyone in advance!

I would say that for the format, group the team achievements together and group the overall achievements by category.
Examples:

Zenith Squad:
Get Over here
Glittering C-Beam
Shield Mastery
Recommendation: Put shields on the other two mechs, and have them block spawning Vek

Metagame:
Emerging Technologies
Friends in High Places
Immovable Objects
Humanity's Savior
Perfect Strategy

Global

Victories
- These are fairly straight-forward, no tips really necessary.

Victory
Beat the game (any length)

Hard Victory
Beat the game on Hard (any length)

Adaptable Victory
Beat the game at least once per length (2, 3, & 4 Islands secured)

Squads Victory
Beat the game with 4 different Squads (any length)

Complete Victory
Beat the game with all 10 primary Squads (any length)

Metagame
- Again, fairly straight-forward, no tips really necessary.

Emerging Technologies
Unlock a new Mech Squad

Friends in High Places
Spend 50 Reputation across all games

Immovable Objects
Block 100 Vek across all games

Humanity's Savior
Rescue 100,000 civilians across all games

Perfect Strategy
Collect 10 Perfect Island rewards across all games

Island Challenges
- Straight-forward

Perfect Island
Do not fail any objective on a single Corporate Island

The Defenders
Finish a Corporate Island without taking Building Damage

Untouchable
Finish a Corporate Island without taking Mech Damage (Repaired damage is still damage)
- (Treamayne) Custom Squad makes this a bit easier. Some combination of Abe Isamu, Judo Mech, Hook Mech (Armor); Bethany Jones, Aegis Mech, Pulse Mech , Defense Mech (Shield); Ice Mech (Freeze self to prevent damage) will usually work.

Backup Batteries
Earn or buy 10 Grid Power on a single Corporate Island
- (Treamayne) Go for this when you see you can tackle five regions that all provide power, then you may only need to buy 1-3 power with reputation.

Good Samaritan
Earn 9 Reputation from missions on a single Corporate Island
- (Treamayne) Go for this when you see you can get at least 7 reputation in your five missions (since the boss fight will always be for 2 rep at the end of the island)

Pilot Challenges

Field Promotion
Have a Pilot reach maximum level

Best of the Best
Have 3 Pilots at maximum level simultaneously

Come Together
Unlock 6 additional Pilots

I'm getting too old for this...
Have an individual Pilot fight the final battle 3 times across multiple games
- (Treamayne) Just make sure you keep returning the same pilot every game (abandon the timeline if the pilot might die) until you unlock this achievement
- (Treamayne) [suggestion] To make this "more difficult," the achievement should require going to the Final Battle with a single pilot three times in a row

Distant Friends
Encounter a familiar face
- (Treamayne) Received with Custom Squad, third Island, First Mission, after the last turn when I clicked "End Turn"
- (Treamayne) Watch for something different in a mountain that has been hit once

Challenge Runs

Sustainable Energy
Finish 3 Corporate Islands without dropping below 4 Grid Power

Engineering Dropout
Finish 3 Corporate Islands without powering a Weapon Modification
- (Treamayne) Custom Squad is great for this, as you can choose three mechs with strong enough main abilities that you can get through the first three islands without the modification (avoid mechs like Lightning Mech, that really really want that first mod to be effective). Any squad with Nano Mech stands a good chance at this.

Chronophobia
Finish 3 Corporate Islands and destroy every Time Pod discovered
- (Treamayne) Slightly harder than it seems, since only your deliberate action can destroy a time pod. Using a squad with some "push" abilities helps, since you can push a Vek onto the tile to destroy the pod
- (Treamayne) Avoid "high instance" time pod regions (Defend Train, Defend Refield Bombs, Destroy Dam). If yo usee less pods, it's easier to destroy "all you encounter"

There is No Try
Finish 3 Corporate Islands without failing an objective
- (Treamayne) Avoid "block spawning" regions, as that seems (to me) the easiest objective to fail. RNG loves to get you fighting on one side, then put a spawn outside of everybody's movement range.

Trusted Equipment
Finish 3 Corporate Islands without equipping any new Pilots or weapons
- (Treamayne) Try to do this at the same time as you go for "Chronophobia," since you will have less chance at pilots and weapons anyway.
- (Treamayne) Custom Squad using mechs with good modifications (like Lightning Mech) make it easier to not need new weapons.

Squad Based:

Rift Walkers

Watery Grave
Drown 3 enemies in water in a single battle with the Rift Walkers squad

Ramming Speed
Kill an enemy 5 or more tiles away with a Dash Punch with the Rift Walkers squad

Island Secure
Complete 1st Corporate Island with the Rift Walkers squad

Rusting Hulks

Overpowered
Overpower your Power Grid twice by earning or buying Power when it is full with the Rusting Hulks squad
- (Arnust) The two points of overpowering do not need to be consecutive, so don't be afraid of risking a hit if you'll get it back later. It's pretty easy to get it in a sweep at the first Island's store if you spend all your reputation in more power and have gone for missions awarding it.
- (Treamayne) Go to Archive first, and when you see a chance to have every mission award at least 1 power - you can fairly easily get this achievement as the first two regions will get you to full power and you only need to get the bonus power from two of the remaining three attempts.

Stormy Weather
Deal 12 damage with Electric Smoke in a single battle with the Rusting Hulks squad
- (Arnust) A good method to get this one is to do so with the upgrade to Electric Smoke increasing its damage by +1, and apply it in a battle full of weak enemies. For me, the best place to do this is in the bossfight with the "Goo", as it'll divide several times into weaker and weaker versions of itself that are semi mandatory to kill in the mission objective and are well dealt with Smoke, as well as some of the other Vek in the fight.
- (Treamayne) If you see a chance to buy (or luckily get from a pod/island bonus) the Smoke Pellets (for your Pulse Mech), take them. It makes this achievement much easier.

Perfect Battle
Take no Mech or Building Damage in a single battle with the Rusting Hulks squad (Repaired damage is still damage)

Zenith Guard

Get Over Here
Kill an enemy by pulling it into yourself with the Zenith Guard squad

Glittering C-Beam
Hit 4 enemies with a single laser with the Zenith Guard squad

Shield Mastery
Block damage with a Shield 4 times in a single battle with the Zenith Guard squad
- (Treamayne) You will need the "+1 use" upgrade. At the start, put your Laser and Charge mechs next to each other, with the Defense mech at least 1 square away (in line) and use your first action to drop a shield on the Laser and Charge Mechs. They will invariably bump or get hit (you can block a spawn if needed to "use" the shield) and that is half the work. You may even get the chance to use your second shot on the mechs again.

Blitzkrieg

Chain Attack
Have the Chain Whip attack chain through 10 Tiles with the Blitzkrieg squad
- (Treamayne) This is almost inevitable if you are going for the 4 island victory. Once there are enough enemies on a congested map, just look for the opportunity to move a mech and connect groups into a large chain.

Lightning War
Finish the first 2 Corporate Islands in under 30 minutes with the Blitzkrieg squad
- (Treamayne) Avoid unnecessary actions (don't move or repair if you don't have to) and try for "Block Spawning" missions, as the more enemies you block, the less fighting you do and the more time you save.Also, avoid using R.S.T. in your first two islands. There are too many regions with environmental effects that waste a lot of time when trying to earn this achievement.

Hold the Line
Block 4 emerging Vek in a single turn with the Blitzkrieg squad
- (Arnust) Most likely you'll need to use the Boulder Mech's rock, which can serve as a static blocker added to the rest of your squad.
- (Treamayne) One thing to remember about this, is you will likley need to block two spawns in one round to have 4 available to block on the round after it. You can also, sometimes, push a Vek over one of the spawn tiles if Boulder Mech is too far away to move there itself.

Steel Judoka

Unbreakable
Have Mech Armor absorb 5 damage in a single battle with the Steel Judoka squad
- (Treamayne) Use Abe Isamu so you have two mechs with armor, and this becomes much easier to earn.

Unwitting Allies
Have 4 enemies die from enemy fire in a single battle with the Steel Judoka squad

Mass Displacement
Push 3 enemies with a single attack with the Steel Judoka squad
- (Treamayne) Siege Mech is the face of this achivement, but don;t be shy about using Judo Mech and/or Gravity Mech to get at least three enemeis around a single point for Siege Mech to push them all. Great on islands with Blobber or Spider (Spider Leader), since you can push the thrown blobs too.

Flame Behemoths

Quantum Entanglement
Teleport a unit 4 tiles away with the Flame Behemoths squad

Scorched Earth
End a battle with 12 tiles on Fire with the Flame Behemoths squad

This is Fine
Have 5 enemies on Fire simultaneously with the Flame Behemoths squad

Frozen Titans

Cryo Expert
Shoot the Cryo-Launcher 4 times in a single battle with the Frozen Titans squad

Trick Shot
Kill 3 enemies with a single attack of the Janus Cannon with the Frozen Titans squad

Pacifist
Kill less than 3 enemies in a single battle with the Frozen Titans squad

Hazardous Mechs

Healing
Heal 10 Mech Health in a single battle with the Hazardous Mechs squad

Immortal
Finish 4 Corporate Islands without a Mech being destroyed at the end of a battle with the Hazardous Mechs squad

Overkill
Deal 8 damage to a unit with a single attack with the Hazardous Mechs squad

Randomized Squad

Loot Boxes!
Open 5 Time Pods in a single game with a Random squad

Lucky Start
Beat the game (any length) without spending any Reputation with a Random squad
- (Treamayne) If possible, use special pilot to shore up any science or other non-damage mechs. Decide to play for this if you get two time-pods on the first island (since you won;t be buying upgrades) and if needed, use the +2 energy perfect island bonus to keep your grid high.

Change the Odds
Raise Grid Defense to 30% or more with a Random squad

Customized Squad

Mech Specialist
Beat the game with 3 of the same Mech in a Custom squad
- (Treamayne) It's a challenging run, but 3x Jet Mech can get the Mech and Flight Specialist achievements at the same time.

Class Specialist
Beat the game with 3 different Mechs from the same class in a Custom squad

Flight Specialist
Beat the game with 3 flying Mechs in a Custom squad
- (Treamayne) Prospero won't count as flying in a normal mech, even with his flight activated.
- (Treamayne) It's a challenging run, but 3x Jet Mech can get the Mech and Flight Specialist achievements at the same time.
