Hello, and welcome to my Achievement Guide for Dynasty Warriors: Gundam.
In this guide I will list the achievements and how to get them.
If you see any mistakes or errors or whatever, feel free to contact me at
Kratos1173@yahoo.com. However I have a few rules for emailing me so... yeah.
1. No spam. Or else.
2. Label it "Dynasty Warriors: Gundam" or something.

Anyway, on to the guide.

3. Achievement Details <dwad>
-------------------------------------------------------------
I'm going to group the similar achievements together in this section.

---------------------------------
Official Mode Clears <dwof>
---------------------------------
These achievements are for beating official mode with different characters.
You get an achievement for 1 clear, 3 clears, and clearing it with all.
There are 6 characters in official mode. Amuro, Kamille, Judau, Char, Haman,
and Scirocco. Amuro, Kamille, and Char have 4 missions, Haman has 3, and Judau
and scirocco have 2 missions. Although for your first run you only have Amuro,
Kamille, and Judau. If you want to clear it quickly then obviously go with 
Judau.I personally cleared it with Kamille. If you want to do it quicker and 
have a second controller, you can use your second controller to use someone
higher leveled and have the first characer just sit there. 
Although for official mode you can only use characters in official mode for 
the second player. These achievements aren't that difficult and are easier to
complete than the Original Mode ones.

---------------------------------
Original Mode Clears <dwor>
---------------------------------
Similar to Official Mode, but with more characters which makes it alot
longer. You get an achievement for 1 clear, 8 clears, and all clear.
There are a total of 16 characters in Original Mode. All characters
have 5 missions in this mode unlike in Official Mode.
At first you only have Heero, Domon, and Loran to use. I personally cleared
it with Heero first. Again if you have 2 controllers you can clear these ALOT
quicker.
In future updates I may go into more depth on these.

---------------------------------
Character Gallery Complete <dwcg>
---------------------------------
Alright, for this achievement (as well as the mobile suit one) you need to
fill in the character gallery (duh). Each time you see a character they are
added to the Gallery. However there are some exceptions (I think anyway).
Some of the characters aren't in the battles. These characters you most likely
unlock by beating a story mode with someone that is in the same Gundam series
as them. If you are missing someone after clearing some Original Modes they 
are most likely in Official Mode as that's where many of them are.
Playable Character Series (use if you don't know the series characters are in.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Amuro Ray, Char Aznable.
Zeta Gundam: Kamille Bidan, Paptimus Scirocco, Haman Karn, Char Aznable, Emma
Sheen, and Jerid Messa.
ZZ Gundam: Judau Ashta, Puru, Puru Two, Roux Louka, Haman Karn.
Mobile Fighter G Gundam: Domon Kasshu (GUNDAM FIGHTO READY GO), Master Asia.
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: Heero Yuy, Milliardo Peacecraft.
Turn A Gundam: Loran Cehack.

Alright, now I'm going to list the characters in order on the character 
gallery starting at Amuro Ray and going right. When you see the series in
paranthesis that means that all the characters starting from that one and
down are in that series.

---------------------------------
Pilot & Mobile Suit Level Max <dwlm>
---------------------------------
These 2 achiements are not that difficult as by the time you finish a story
you will already be pretty close. The max Pilot level is 30, while the max
Mobile Suit level is 10. Your mobile suit will most likely reach 10 before
your Pilot reaches 30. Heero was the first person I maxed out along with his
Wing-Zero. Also if you use Mechanical Sense/Pilot Sense you will get more exp
for Mobile Suit and Pilot respectively. It takes 77,400 to reach MAX for both
Pilot and Mobile Suit.

---------------------------------
All Skills Acquired <dwsu>
---------------------------------
For this you must have every single skill for at least one character.
There are a total of 36 skills. You will get at least one skill for each
mission that character does if they participate (meaning if you use the 
controller thing I mentioned the character not doing anything won't get a
skill). Sometimes when you first start out a character they will get more than
1 skill per mission. I'm not exactly sure what determines how you get the
skills and what you do to change how many you get so I'm just sticking with
you get 1 skill per mission except in the beginning. Also something you should
note, the skills you get are random (although in the end all the characters
have the same skills). If you do the controller method I mentioned using the
same character for player 2 the entire time you will get this without having
to do anything extra. If you don't do that however, you are stuck with 
repeating missions with 1 character. I personally got this achiement with
Heero, and if you don't do the controller method I would recommend you do the
same, as Heero has a very easy first mission which is also fairly short.

---------------------------------
Missions Complete <dwmc>
---------------------------------
You get these by completing missions. You can view how many missions you have
done in Player record menu. If you are going to clear the game with all 
characters then you will get the first one easily.There are 80 missions in 
Original Mode and 19 in Official Mode, so if you do every mission you will 
only need one more mission. However, if you don't plan on doing that then you 
can just do a really easy mission over and over again, again I would recommend
Heero's First Mission. 

---------------------------------
Total Shot Down <dwts>
---------------------------------
These are obtained by killing lots of enemies. Like with the missions, you can
check how many kills you have in the Player Record Menu. Now, for the first
achiement, 50,000, you will get this one most likely before you finish all the
character stories. However, for 100,000, I only had around 75,000 kills by the
time I finished all the stories. For this you will most likely have to farm
kills, there are several missions that I would recommend. 
You can do Heero/Master Asia/Jerid's 5th mission, you can get 1,500+ kills on
this mission easily.

Or you can do Roux/Judau/Scirocco's 1st mission. If you play through this
normally you won't get that many kills. However, if you you stay at the first
field from where Roux starts (labeled Field D in game) the field will have
it's health meter thing restored by the field to the left (Southwestern base)
making it so you can keep getting kills til the Southwestern Base is taken.
There is another field later in the mission that gets restored as well
(Castle Town), however, your allies will capture the 2 bases that restore
it's health while they won't for the first field. 

*Note* If you find places that also work good for racking up kills
send me an email about it and I will add it and credit you for it.

-------------------------------------------------------------
4. Tips <dwt>
-------------------------------------------------------------
Most of these have already been listed but... yeah.

1. You can use a second controller to clear missions of weaker people or 
people you just don't like :P.

2. Heero's first mission is a quick and easy mission you can do to clear
missions.

3. You can do Heero/Master Asia/Jerid's 5th mission to get alot of kills,
easily 1,500+.

4. You can also do Roux/Judau/Scirocco's first mission to get kills using
the regenerating fields.

5. For experience, prioritize kills bosses, but also make sure to kill normal
enemies as well. 

6. Mobile Suits that have good crowd clearing abilities are Wing-Zero, Zeta
Gundam, Char's Gelgoog, and Puru's Qubeley (Black I believe). For Wing-Zero
it's XXXY is great at clearing things in all directions (if you equip the 
skills Zero Range Shot it will destroy even more), while it's 
SP attack is just plain overkill. Zeta Gundam's Boost attack will kill 
pretty much everything that the beam hits (if you pair it with the Zero Range
Shot and Piercing Shot it will kill even more), for it's SP attack for crowd
clearing the 1st level is the best one if you get all the enemies in front of
you. Char's Gelgoog's XXY attack will slaughter everything that it hits if the
enemies are all grouped together and with the Zero Range Shot it will have
a higher chance to one shot the stronger units. For Puru's Qubeley the XXXY
attack will kill everything right around you, although it's not as good as
Wing-Zero's.

7. For the Mobile Suits to reach max level you need 77,400 experience.
I do not know the exact amount for Pilots but it is very close so I am going
to say it is 77,400 as well. If anyone knows the exact amount email me and I
will credit you.

*Note* If you yourself have any tips you would like to submit email me and I  
will put them up if I think they are useful.
