Hardcore Mode Conditions

Character initial HP in Hardcore Endless Mode is not fixed at 1 (but the initial HP is 1) so it is possible to increase your health using items such as Piki Piki Piman.

Unlocking Hardcore Mode Achievements Strategy (Oozora Subaru)

Subaru Skills

Subaru’s set of skills are structured in such a way that can help any player unlock Hardcore mode achievements.

The Oozora Police skill can be used on non-boss enemies to instantly defeat them, allowing Subaru to clear foes unharmed. The skill itself can also be stored which can help you completely eliminate any difficulties in Stage 1 where there are no enemy barrages.

If you still take damage despite using Oozora Police, you will accumulate stacks of Sunny Optimism.

Subaru’s special attack Duck Shout is very powerful in Stage 1 where most fans are weak. With strong firepower in the early stages, you are likely to not have any problems.

It will be easier if you raise the fan degree to the second stage.

Subaru Stamps

Subaru’s starting weapon is very good apart from its small range. By equipping the Bomb Stamp, you can adopt a pseudo-ranged attack style against enemy groups that makes it possible to compensate for the weapon’s drawbacks.

Lazy Attack Strategy (Ceres Fauna)

Fauna Normal Attack

Unlike Subaru, Fauna’ s normal attack projectiles are scattered in all directions. Once her starting weapon reaches level 7 (Awakening), it gains a tracking effect.

Fauna has the Whisperer skill which is not as good as Subaru’s Oozora Police for nullifying or avoiding incoming damage. Despite this, there are almost no issues using Whisperer apart from encountering the large Dead Beat (Shield) boss that will encircle you at around 8 minutes and 30 seconds in the run.

When using Fauna, remember to save her special attack (do not use it for 8 minutes until  you encounter the large Dead Beat boss). This will make the run easier than relying on the Guardian Tree to recover HP.

Items that Should not be Picked Up

Fauna Stamps

Almost any stamp is okay but Projectile Up, Solo, and Life Steal stamps are the best.

  1. (0.6v) Achievement Note :

    I don’t know if it’s related to the latest version, or the chosen mode but :
    – Achievement unlocks on Stage Mode Hardcore as well (haven’t tried on endless, not sure it will since you don’t win technically)
    – Item increasing HP Max did not work, making you stay at 1HP the whole run.

    Managed easily Stage1 Hardcore with Mumei, Gachiko, all upgrades, No halu/fan upgrade
    Started with Wamy Water for extra bump.

    Weapon : Absolute Wall, Snow Flower Sake, uncomplete Lightning Weiner.
    Item : Body Pillow & Chicken Feather (must), Headphone, Face Mask. (Super) Idol Costum for more emergency ult, didn’t used it much luckily
