Trying to get Master Ninja on all chapters on MN difficulty...

23 posts in this topic

... is really damn hard. I'm up to chapter 9 now, and I thought I did everything right during the chapter itself. Got most of the encounters done under par time, so got a lot of 10K bonuses that way, even performed plenty of UTs during each fight whenever it was possible. Then, I killed Alma but didn't have all my ninpo replenished by accident, so I missed out on the 100K bonus at the end and got a Head Ninja rating. Reloaded a save, and after a few more attempts I killed Alma again, this time with all my ninpo up. And it still wasn't enough. I got every single bonus at the end of the chapter (under par time, kill bonus, essence bonus, ninpo bonus) and still got a Head Ninja rating.

 

I'm still not sure what I did wrong exactly, but I guess I'll have to redo this entire chapter again sometime soon. Have any of you had this much difficulty with certain chapters? I don't recall chapter 9 being a problem when I did this on the Vita, but I'm having real issues this time around. It also doesn't help that I still can't find anything online on how much karma you would need to get certain ratings exactly, so it's all just guesswork until you actually get the rating.

It can be a little annoying sometimes. My advice here is to do the ambush before you kill Alma. The one in the Archives

I did the Archive ambush during chapter 7 already, so I can't do it in chapter 9. I think I might have to check whether I can do the Ritual Room ambush in chapter 9 instead, that should push me over the edge. That way I can probably get chapter 10 without any ambushes, but that's an easier chapter anyway.

Same boat cap.9 done with everything but head ninja... I have archives ambush, but God, Red ninjas and Cats 

 

Maybe start the ambush 5 of 6 UT 50000 points and go for Alma... I try tomorrow

Hello everyone, if we die during the level and choose to continue without quitting, do we get the master ninja rank?  
In Sigma 2 death had no effect on rank, but in Sigma 1 i have no idea, thanks in advance and sorry for my English.

Pretty sure the game adds the time you wasted in a continue screen as chapter play time which means if you die too often you wont get the time bonus at the end.

Skilled players dont really need it because they just chain UT's but i still would suggest going for the time bonus especially in the early chapters.

 

Quitting the application doesnt take much longer than pressing continue because that screen takes very long to go away. 

Take it with a grain of salt because im not 100% sure, i just heard the time is added to your play time if you die.

 

 

I have another question, do i have to get master ninja rank on all chapters in a row or could i for example skip chapter 3 at first and come back later ?

I’m almost 100% sure master ninja rank has to be done all in one run.

I asked this because the game saves after every chapter, however if you die before saving on a statue in the next chapter, you will get reset to the last statue save.

So I wonder what the game actually saves at the chapter cleared screen.

 

I can try to skip chapter 18 and see if it works, if not it's not too bad.

 

Thanks for your answer, but I'm curious what brings you to the conclusion that you're almost 100% sure?

During my very hard run I got master ninja rank during chapter 18 but on my master ninja playtru when I got master ninja 1-17 the trophy didn't pop.

So Im almost sure it needs to be one overall playtru.

Its not that bad to achieve master ninja rank on master ninja tbh, asides from chapter 1 and you dont even need to be perfect just spam ut's and make it to the end.

Hi to everyone.

Decided to get MN rank on MN with collecting all scrabs and all ambushes at once.

Now I am on chapter 15, and 120 Vigoorian Berserks makes me mad. Does anybody know easy guide or glith for this area?

It is recommended to do all the ambushes on normal difficulty for a much quicker experience; however, if you are absolutely committed to doing it on master ninja then the only "safe" strategy is to use the counterattack with the lunar since it has the longest counterattack i-frames.  The lunar counterattack strategy is really slow and not very enjoyable but if you try to fight multiple berserkers in any other way in Sigma it is fairly luck based because the berserkers will blow you up with ground fire during your recovery frames frequently.

Thanks to everyone. Finished the ambush on the Stadium, and as I understand, the only one left. But it has 40 berserks, so still problematic for me.

Despite the fact, I have platinum trophy on PS Vita, these fiends are the real hell for me.

I'm convinced this is legitimately impossible to achieve. I've cleared the first stage over 30 times and somehow still have yet to get a master ninja rating, even though I've cleared it in under 11 minutes, have 75 kills, and have gotten several UTs during the chapter. This is the worst game I have ever played by such a tremendous margin. Itagaki is a talentless hack and fans of this series have Stockholm Syndrome.

I like how you have a Ryu Hayabusa icon on your PSN account. Dude you just suck; plenty of other people were able to do it.

You don't have a single trophy for this game pal. So you don't know what the fuck you are talking about.

On a related note, I just realized that you can complete the Vigoorian ambush (with the glowing rocks near where you get Dabilahro) on Ch 16.  You just have to complete putting all of the tablet pieces in first, then it's activated.

No, I don't think it counts. I was continuing after many deaths and still got the full time bonuses at the end of the stages.

Hey guys i just read in a steam forum that they missed MN on chapter 16, rushed for that chapter on a second playthrough and got the achievement after getting MN rank so maybe it doesnt need to be all in one go?

It is possible that it doesn't need to be in one playthrough; however, it is very inefficient to do it this way.  It makes a lot more sense to just make a backup save at the beginning of every chapter and reload that if you don't get master ninja.
