High On Life is the brain child of Ricky & Morty creator, Justin Roiland. It is a comedic first-person shooter game, with action-adventure and metroidvania elements, taking place in a science fiction world, which features talking guns.This game is not for everyone, as it features simple gameplay mechanics and the type of comedy Roiland is known for; however, it is a fun mindless shooter.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
Around half of the achievements in the game are directly related to story progression. Just playing through the game normally will net you around 500gs.png; however, there are a lot of missable and miscellaneous achievements that you should focus on getting along the way. Refer to the missable achievements in the following order to ensure you don't miss one along the way:
 Additionally, there are 227 collectibles in the game. Players should focus on grabbing any lugloxs they find during the story, but plan on mopping up most of them after the game.

Your mop-up will consist of collecting lugloxs (Luglox Genocide (60G) and Playing Card to Get (30G)) and grabbing any miscellaneous achievements you missed. Keep in mind that many of these are missable, like Eatin' Good in the Neighborhood (20G), and will require additional playthroughs to earn. 

High On Life is a fun game, but can be a frustrating experience for achievement hunters. This is due to the number of missable achievements and high collectible count. But, if you are willing to stick with it, it will feel like a very rewarding completion!

Additionally, it is possible for you to walk past the body and leave the area without the Mag-Boots; however, this isn't intended as you need the Mag-Boots to progress further in the game.

You need to do this 20 times. Despite the knife animation literally ripping their eyeball out, this does not count toward the achievement.
  • Watch Globo's rise to fame.


    As early as you possibly can, purchase the Drums from the Pawn Shop in Blim City for 78 Pesos. After defeating 9-Torg, check the area to the right of your house for Globo and his dad. If they aren't there yet, do one more bounty then they should appear. Speak with both of them and agree to give Globo the Drum. Complete the next bounty and return to this location to see Globo has a crowd. Speak with both of them. Then, complete another bounty and return to the same area again to find just the dad. He will tell you that Globo was signed to a music label. Now continue doing bounties and checking the café TVs across from Blorto's in Blim City for Globo's TV appearance.

    As of Patch #2, most players are reporting steps not progressing, Globo never appearing on the TV, and many more progress breaking bugs stopping this achievement from popping. Additionally, starting a second save file seems to completely bug out Globo, so a third save file is needed to even try this again.

You need the ad with the robot talking about prizes. once it comes on stay in the room and watch the TV for the full 5 minutes.
  • Unlock and explore every collectible warp base.

    After defeating the first three bosses of the game Blorto's shop in Blim City will open. He sells Warp Discs for Warp Crystals. You'll need to purchase all of them and travel to a Warp Spawn to use each of them. You need to complete all of the scenarios to unlock this achievement.

    • Movie Theatre: Go inside and wait for the movie to start, you don't have to watch the whole movie.
    • Toilet: Solve the pipes puzzle.
