High On Life Mods Please Ban Achievement Guide

High on Life Mods Please Ban cover

Mods Please Ban is one of the hardest achievement to obtain in High On Life. Not only is the requirements to complete the achievement a very long and grindy list, but there are also some objectives for the achievement that are easily missable and may require a playthrough.

In this guide, we will go through all the steps on how to complete the Mods Please Ban achievement, and share some tips to speed up the completion of the objectives.

How to get the Mods Please Ban achievement?

The Mods Please Ban achievement revolves around the Hunter Forums which is a list of optional objectives that can be taken on, presented in a forum-style interface. In here, there are multiple boards that house different threads for each of the achievement objectives.

You’ll be able to go through most of the objectives just by playing the game, but there are a few objectives that are missable due to the requirements that are only available during a specific part of a playthrough. These objectives are:

  • Obtain Dr. Gurgula’s hint in Douglas’ office
    • I have information about Dr. Gurgula. Important
  • Kill 10 Hunks
    • just saw a huge merkalod lol+++
  • Kill 90 Greebles

For the objectives that require a kill count, you can do a checkpoint reload once you’ve cleared the target enemies in the area. This way, you’ll still be able to fight the same enemies without moving away, but these counts still count towards the objective despite reloading the checkpoint. This is especially helpful for those enemies that do not respawn post-game.

Below are the objectives listed as how they are posted within the Hunter Forums:
