This guide will point out the achievements you can easily miss. Watch out, you only have 1 chance in some.
Usual HOG achievements – Overview
If you play many HOGs, you might already know that most of them usually follows a certain format. Usually it consists of finding all collectibles, all minigames without skip, finishing all HOG without hints, one with no mistakes, and one under a certain time.
However in this game you are only required to finish 3 minigames without skip, so feel free to skip many of them except the ones noted below though I don’t recommend it as it basically cuts down the game.
For the HOG scenes, you only need to finish 3 without hints. You still need to finish one without mistake and under 30 seconds though. You can use the “Extras” menu to train for those. Make sure to play it several times as there are some minor changes.
However the reason I’m making this guide is because there are quite some easily missed ones. Some must be done in first try, and if you missed the chance you basically have to replay the game until that part again. I’m arranging this guide chronologically, from the first missable to the last.
I read some people saying that if you made a mistake on the first-chance ones you can Alt+Tab and close the game or use Task Manager. Though I haven’t tested this so I cannot really confirm nor deny it.
Patient Listener: Play Chapter 1 without skipping any cutscenes.
You probably won’t miss this, especially if its your first run, unless you’re super impatient. Basically just don’t skip cutscenes, you’ll also miss out on the story. Fast-forwarding dialogue (left-click once in a conversation) is okay, just don’t skip it entirely. There’s a skip button in the bottom corner, stay away from it.
Fast Learner & Lock Expert
Fast Learner: Pick the first lock without making a mistake.
Lock Expert: Pick all the locks without making a mistake.
The first lock appears early in the game. There are only 5, pretty far in between, and only available when playing as Jack. The rule is to pick the locks that are not blocked by others first. All locks must be picked correctly on the first try.

Steady Aim: Pull down the net on the first throw.
After the stage on the ship Mary-Jane and Jack will be beached. You will have a minigame to take down the net. Click only when the reticule is green. Must be done on the first try.
Sea Shanty: Repeat the sea shanty without making a mistake.
When you reach the doctor’s house you will have to fix and play the accordion-looking thing. Here is the correct sequence, just follow the numbers. Must be done on the first try
Board Game Master
Board Game Master: Win in both games against the pirates without using Skip.
When you play as Jack again he will go to a bar and recruit some pirates. They challenge him to play 2 simple minigames, which you must not skip.
The first one is basically just following the cup and pick the one with the ball inside. The second one you must trap the octopus tile. You can fail this as many times as you like, you’ll still get the achievement as long as you don’t skip.
