This page of the Oddworld Soulstorm game guide contains descriptions of Badges from Level 7 - The Hijack. These challenges are quite varied and include locating collectibles, spending Moolah in vending machines, pelting Sligs with rocks and rescuing Mudokons. Our guide will help you earn all the platinum badges in Level 7.
Additional notes: if we do not pass the requirements of the challenge 100%, then we can still receive a badge of a lower rank, for example, a gold or a silver one. The game allows you to repeat the completed stages in order to obtain the missed badges.
Platinum badge requirements: Find 5 Secret Areas
Badge description: One of the challenges associated with secrets/collectibles. The game always informs about finding a secret area. We have included them in the walkthrough of Level 7 - they are marked in green.
Note - Some of the secret areas in Level 7 are easy to miss. This can happen if we miss our chance to use flying Sligs to destroy the floors of selected railcars (example in the picture). Abe is unable to destroy these kinds of obstacles without the help of possessed Sligs.
Platinum badge requirements: 35 Moolah (the in-game currency) spent.
Badge description: During the level, we can find vending machines that dispense items for free and those that require you to buy things for cash (Moolah) - of course, we are interested in the latter.
Despite being close to the end of the level, near the lever that stops the train, we should backtrack and do some shopping if we haven't yet earned the platinum badge. Of course, you will need to find at least 35 Moolah by sifting through loot and searching the bodies of your enemies. If our inventory is full, we can throw some of our items to dispose of them and free up some space.
Platinum badge requirements: Destroy 207 objects
Badge description: the objects associated with this challenge are primarily various crates. Everything in our path needs to be destroyed.
This platinum badge is hard to get, as we can easily fail the requirements of the challenge. This will happen if we take the wrong steps during the Slig Mama boss fight. We must allow the boss to break down the barricades on the left to gain access to new crates, among other things - this spot is showcased in the attached picture. After the barricades are destroyed, focus on defeating the boss, and once Slig Mama is dealt with, head to the new crates to destroy them.
Platinum badge requirements: Save 15 Mudokons.
Badge description: Finding the 15 Mudokons alone is not difficult, and we have described it in detail in our Level 7 walkthrough. However, we need to be careful later on in the level, as we will need to bring the Mudokons almost to the very end of the train. Let's make a habit of leaving them behind before we deal with new threats, such as Sligs or objects that need to be set on fire/blown up. Abe should also definitely face the Slig Mama boss on his own.
Platinum badge requirements: Find 5 Royal Jelly secrets.
Badge description: One of the challenges associated with secrets/collectibles. Royal Jelly is a levitating object that you can collect to lengthen Abe's health bar. We have included them in the walkthrough of Level 7 - they are marked in green.
Platinum badge requirements: Hit a Slig 8 times with Rock Candy.
Badge description: This is the easiest challenge in this level. Rock candy is a new type of thrown object that Abe can obtain from certain vending machines. We can throw them at Sligs to deal damage to them.
There's an easy way to earn this badge, as the game lets you hit one Slig multiple times. Since it takes three Rock Candies to stun a single Slig, we should be able to complete the challenge by using them to dispatch three opponents.
