I recently noticed an achievement in Runner2 called "Double Perfectionist". The text says I need to:

Get two Double Perfects in Each World

Problem is, I have no idea what a Double Perfect is, let alone how to get one.

What is a Double Perfect, and how do I get one?


A double perfect is getting a perfect twice in the other game dificulties. That is, Rather Easy, Just Right, and Rather Hard.

To start off, getting a perfect means getting all the gold bars within a level AS well as getting all the score multipliers (mode UPs).

Getting a perfect on "Just Right and Rather Hard" or "Just Right and Rather Easy", or "Rather Easy and Rather Hard" in 2 levels of each world will get you your achievement.


As you may or may not already be aware, Runner 2 has three separate difficulties: Rather Easy, Just Right, and Quite Hard. Unlike in Bit.Trip Runner, where the difficulties merely altered the speed / collection requirements, the various difficulty levels in Runner 2 adjust the level itself, by adding enemies.

The other half of explaining this involves a brief explanation of the Perfect System itself - Collect all the gold and mode+ on the level (regardless of checkpoints, loops, or alternate paths), and you will score a perfect! If you reach the bonus cannon after crossing the finish line, you have gotten a perfect on the level. (Going on to then score a bullseye earns you a Perfect+, which is also tracked, but irrelevant to this question).

So a Double Perfect is earned when you have earned a Perfect on two of a level's difficulties, and a Triple Perfect when you have perfect!'d all three. Perfect!s are marked on the world map's levels as you achieve them, appearing as a colored exclamation point - Yellow ! for Quite Easy, Blue! for Just Right, and a Purple! for Rather Hard.

This means, to get the achievement you quote, you would have to beat 10 levels (2 in each world) a minimum of 3 times each (one for each difficulty)

  • Did you mean a minimum of 2 times each? It seems like 3 times each would be for a Triple Perfect, right? – EBongo Mar 30 '13 at 1:58
  • @EBongo The achievement itself requires 2 double perfects per world, and then 3 triple perfects per world. – Raven Dreamer Mar 30 '13 at 2:33
  • > ... Pink ! for Just Right, and a Red ! for Rather Hard. – not-just-yeti Jun 24 '13 at 13:31
  • On the WiiU version, I have a Blue "!" for Just Right, and Purple "!" for Rather Hard. These colors correspond to the bullseye icon (with the upper-right corner of the "!" actually touching the same-colored ring of the bullseye). – not-just-yeti Jun 24 '13 at 13:37
  • @not-just-yeti Thanks, fixed. I am not sure why I listed the wrong colors. – Raven Dreamer Jun 24 '13 at 14:37
