While perusing my stats I noticed that there are several secret achievements in Runner 2. Given the quirky off-beat nature of the game, I'm curious to know if they are something I will unlock as the game progresses, or if they are of the very obscure variety. If they are part of the plot, please spoiler tag - and I'll find them when I get there. If not, I don't mind finding out now so I can get started doing whatever weird thing it is.

While I don't recall there being any secret achievements for the Steam version, there are a total of 4 secret achievements for the Xbox 360, and 1 secret trophy for the PS3.

The Xbox 360 achievements are:

  • Multiple Personalities -- Beat 30 levels as alternate characters. Way to go!
  • Dancing Fool -- You got the fever and danced 100 times.
  • Bullseye -- Perfect+?! That's unpossible!
  • Marathoner -- You warned the Athenians of the oncoming Persian army!

Each of these is pretty self explanatory. Meaning, to get Bullseye, you need to Perfect+ a level, to get Marathoner, you need to run a total of 26.2 miles, etc.

The secret trophy for the PS3 is:

  • Dancing Fool -- Dance 100 Times

Not really sure why the PS3 version has fewer "secret" trophies, but, I don't make them! I just try and get them. Regardless, all of these are incredibly easy to earn in a single play through of the game. Just make sure you use a different character while you're dancing your way to a bullseye after 26.2 miles!

There are no "secret" achievements. Each achievement states how to get it, and it's relatively straightforward.

For the ones you are referring to, those are considered "secret" because it requires unlocking "off the beaten path" levels (the ones that are dead ends). You can pretty much get the majority of those achievements in the first level.

It would be cumbersome for me to screen cap from my game right now, but I promise you there are a number that are listed as "secret". Do you mean that there is nothing special necessary to unlock these achievements, apart from completing the game? – EBongo Mar 31 '13 at 4:59
No, you'll get them normally. I assume maybe you are referring to "unlocking a single character" ones. – waifu Mar 31 '13 at 5:00
