This page of the Oddworld Soulstorm game guide contains descriptions of Badges in level 8 - Reunion at the Old Trellis. These challenges require you to, e.g. find secrets, attack Sligs with Rock Candies, rescue Mudokons, and open lockers. Our guide will help you earn all the platinum badges in mission 8.
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 2 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 8 - they are marked in green.
Platinum badge requirements: Hit a Slig 35 times with Rock Candy.
Badge description: As a reminder, Rock Candies are throwing items that can be used to weaken and stun Sligs. Abe will come across the first Candy machine soon after the start of the stage – you can get the Candies for free.
If you don't want to risk missing the platinum badge, you can attack enemies from the starting locations using Candies and wait until their health bar is restored after 2 successful hits. This will allow you to "reset" the process of weakening Sligs. Each hit is counted separately - you don't have to stun 35 Sligs.
Platinum badge requirements: Search 20 lockers.
Badge description: Getting a platinum badge for opening lockers shouldn't be hard, though keep in mind to:
- Carefully examine the mine - it is easy to miss some lockers because of the darkness.
- Open lockers in the final part of the mission - You will have to win 3 battles with Sligs. Lockers can be opened before or after a battle.
Platinum badge requirements: Find 4 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 8 - they are marked in green.
Platinum badge requirements: Save 200 Mudokons.
Badge description: There are 254 Mudokons on this level - 250 of them will run in the background, you have to find and recruit the remaining 4 Mudokons. This means that you can get the platinum badge if you lose less than 54 Mudokons.
You rescue Mudokons in the final part of the stage. Abe must protect his brethren three times. We included these parts in our mission 8 walkthrough – Protecting the Mudokons page.
Note - If too many Mudokons die in a given battle, restart the checkpoint and try again. Fortunately, you will be able to save before each of the three fights.
Platinum badge requirements: Capture 20 Sligs.
Badge description: You need to tie up a Slig. By default, you do this by using the Tape. However, starting with mission 8, Abe can also craft a Bouncy Biding Candy which makes it very easy to tie opponents - throw an improved Candy at a Slig and tie the enemy from a distance.
Regardless of the chosen method, try to capture some of the Sligs during the mission's final part. You have to win 3 long battles – you will have many opportunities to tie up 20 opponents. In addition, you will be able to capture several Sligs before advancing to the final battles.
