Welcome to my "Mega Man X for iPhone guide" for iPhone! Specifically made to fit our small screens, separated into easy-to-find sections. Enjoy!

Note: This is not the full guide, but a cut-to-bone all-you-need guide. More in-depth information is found in the blog post.

These achievements are fairly easy to get and also award the least points. Don't worry about these as you will get them as you progress throughout the game.

The upgrades are listed below in the order in which they should ideally be collected, based on the their requirements.

  1. 100-yard Dash!
  2. Hard-Headed
  3. Unstoppable Firepower
  4. Tough Guy


Easiest to get upgrade, go to the Chill Penguin Stage and complete it as you would normally, once you enter the cave and climb past the spinning wheels and bats, you meet a capsule, take it and voila. If you do not wish to get the shoes, you have to first talk to the man, and then jump over the capsule.


In the Storm Eagle Stage, after the part with the floating platforms you must jump across, you will meet a tall metal pole, jump to the top of it, and slide down the other side. Jump off the platform at the bottom and reach the one to the right, go in and collect your price. You can now destroy rocks with a nice head-butt. This ability, together with dash, is required to collect the X-Buster upgrade.


Go to Flame Mammoth Stage, the first time you encounter the yellow platform with flames shooting up from underneath, you want to turn around and dash-jump off the yellow platform to the left as far as possible. Then with your helmet, head-butt the blocks and jump up till you see the capsule, collect your prize! Don't worry if you accidentally fall off after destroying a few blocks, it's still possible to get up there, even after destroying them all.


In the Sting Chameleon Stage, you will after a few black-outs see a huge chunk of rocks on the right, here, jump up and go right. Eventually you will fight a miniboss. The easiest way to defeat him is to simply shoot him in the head with the X-Buster, and when he jumps, dash all the way to the other side, jump and shoot again, when he jumps, dash back to the spawning point, jump and shoot and so on. Repeat until he dies. When the miniboss is dead, a capsule will appear, claim your prize and move on.

There is a total of 4 subtanks as described below. Requiresments listed after the dash.

Storm Eagle Stage

When you meet the rotating turret on a platform that moves up, shoot it, and take the platform up, shoot the glass and go right, kill the robot, go right, collect the Subtank.

Flame Mammoth - Boots

The first area with flames shooting from the ground and miners throwing their pickaxes at you, jump to the top left platform. From here, dash and jump to the left. You will see a wall of breakable bricks. Jump on them till they break and collect the Subtank.

Armored Armadillo

First time you drop down in a whole and a bulldozer chases you, run until it dies, go back to where it came from and collect the Subtank. Alternately, slide down the wall until the bulldozer starts moving, then jump up and wait until it has passed, then you can drop down and kill it or just go and collect your prize and wait for it to die.

Spark Mandrill - Boomerang Cutter

In the beginning of the level, move down and right as much as you can, and then when standing closest to the last wall you reach, jump and fire the Boomerang Cutter. This should collect the Subtank.

Each of the Maverick stages contain a heart, listed below based on requirements.


Flame Mammoth - In the area with the flame from the bottom and the miners throwing pickaxes, on the bottom level, move all the way to the right, collect your heart.

Launch Octopus - When you find the second whirlpool that leads up to a submarine, jump up and onto it. Shoot the glass "eye" until it falls down, let yourself fall down with it. Walk right, defeat the worm, go to the right and collect the heart.

Armored Armadillo - The second time you jump down and face a bulldozer, kill it (with auto-fire cheat this goes fast), move right until you meet a platform, jump up there and collect the heart. You can easily see it.


Spark Mandrill - The first ladder you meet that leads to the remaining part of the level, jump up on the right side wall, dash jump away from the wall and up onto the platform and collect the heart. Alternately you can jump and use the Boomerang Cutter.

Storm Eagle - In the first map, on the highest left-most point of the elevator, dash-jump to the left. Collect your heart.

Sting Chameleon - Before the cave, where the miniboss entrance is right above you, slide down the wall instead. Here you will see a wall of breakable bricks. Break it, go as far right as you can, then dash-jump to the right onto a platform and collect the heart.


Chill Penguin - Fire Wave - On top of the platform you meet after finding the first robot, destroy the bunkers using the Fire Wave weapon. You can get there either by jumping in the robot and then exiting it and jump up onto the "roof" of the cave, or walk through the cave and jump up there normally.

Boomer Kuwanger - Boomerang Cutter - You can't miss the location of this heart when walk through the stage, and you need to complete it before you can collect the heart. Use the Boomerang Cutter to collect it.

It is only the LAST shot that counts, so beating the bosses with a different weapon and then finishing them off with their weakness will still grant you the achievement.

You do not have to gather these achievements during your first run through of the Maverick bosses, you will face them all again during the Sigma parts and can kill them here (so you don't have to go back and redo bosses).

First fulfill these requirements: Gather all 8 Health Boosts, gather all 4 Subtanks gather all 4 Body Upgrades, kill all 8 Maverick Bosses.

Then go to Armored Armadillo stage, and on the last wagon (the 3rd one), charge up for a super shot, release it while you in the middle of the screen, shoot some small shots to kill the birds ahead of you, and once the wagon is in free air and reaches its highest point, dash jump off to the right, jump up and take the Hadoken upgrade.

To use Hadoken, Press Down -> Left or Right -> Fire

NOTE: To be able to use Hadoken you MUST have full life.

Requirements are listed after the dash.

Bubbly Bat

In the Armored Armadillo Stage, instead of taking the mining carts (one-wheeled thing with spikes in the ends), walk. You will meet a big black bat, kill it, and you will receive your reward for killing the Batton M-501.

Flashy Firefly

In the Spark Mandrill Stage, in the area where the light flashes and those flies cross the screen illuminating a path behind them, that's a Hotarion. Kill one of these to get the achievement. Walk through this area a second time once you have learned when and where they spawn (always the same places).

Whirlpool Stopper - Boomerang Cutter

Shoot at Launch Ocotopus with the Boomerang Cutter until his trunk falls off.

Oil Well Sealer - Boomerang Cutter

Shoot at Flame Mammoth with the Boomerang Cutter until his trunk falls off.

Daring Collector - Weapon Upgrade+Chameleon Sting

In Sigma's Palace, Pt. 3, when you get to a long row of spikes with items on top, charge up for an upgraded shot of Chameleon Ice, this will allow you to take no damage when you walk across the spikes and collect the items.

Merciful Hunter

Choose whichever stage you find the easiest and walk through it. Remember, you can lose life, just not fire any shots. Remember, Launch Octopus Stage is impossible to do this achievement in.

Heartless Hunter

This achievement is easiest to do on either Spark Mandrill or Boomer Kuwanger. Use Shotgun Ice to kill Spark Mandrill or Homing Torpedo on Boomer Kuwanger and you should get this in the first try. It might not be impossible for definitely very hard on bosses like Chill Penguin, Armored Armadillo, Launch Octopus, Sting Chameleon and Storm Eagle since they all have a way of avoiding your attacks.


Pick your favorite stage and go slow, kill stuff instead of running into it. Abuse abilities like Chameleon Sting and Rolling Shield (fully charged) to protect yourself from harm.

Will to Live

Practice, don't die more than twice during any stage.

Nerves of Steel

Avoid taking damage, getting the Armor Upgrade helps a lot, reduces damage by 50%.

Item Hater

Not killing things in the first place helps you a lot on this one. Note: It says items, not upgrades, so get those!

Unlimited Potential

This one is harder, and almost requires that you use the strongest weapon against many bosses. Remember to charge your X-Buster!

Maverick Hunter

The X-Buster is really strong, and for this Achievement you can even collect the upgrade, which will make the fully charged shot as potent as the boss' weakness.

Speed Demon

Dash and dash-jumps are your friends. Using the strongest weapon against bosses helps too. Practice running fast!

S-A Class Hunter

Practice in avoiding the bosses skills. This one is definitely the hardest of all the 60 Achievements.

Thanks to ModMyi for the template used, fastest and easiest one there is to get accomodated with. I found it here!
