X Dive might have kept some Pay2Win mechanics. And now that is Free2Win you can use them for this completion achievement.
Mega Man X Dive Offline Cheesing the +30% HP Clearance Condition
What’s This About?
Every stage in X DiVE has three complete conditions: Beating the stage, beating it in less of 300 seconds (5 minutes), and beating it with 30% or more HP. While the second condition can be spedrun in most levels, the third one might become tricky if you can’t predict certain enemies or against cheesy traps and invisible hazards. But more specifically against bosses.
However, what if I tell you if you grind a bit of currency, you can easily cheese the HP condition no matter how good you are at the game?
Very Simple Steps, Even a Reploid can Do It
1) Go to the shop
All you have to do is get the Reorganization Program, these are 1-UPs you can use right after being defeated. YOU CAN ONLY USE THREE PER RUN, so you can get as many as you like, but three is all you have for a stage.
These are expensive, so don’t forget to farm Zenny in the Zenny Missions. They usually take a minute at most, and the higher your level and the difficulty, the more money you’ll have. So with a run or two you’ll be able to purchase plenty for a while.
2) Go to the Level
Pick any character no matter if is the most broken one, your waifu, or your husbando. Some skills and characters can give heal or shield to also cheese this achievement (e.g. Tron’s Gustaff), and depending of your level and upgrades this might become very easy to do anyways in very late game. But nonetheless you can choose your favorite.
I found out about this trick in level 10-5, which might become very nefarious to do this achievement without the 1-UPs. Not only you have to avoid lava and residual damage (Fire and poison), but in the second half you will have to deal with AOE heat waves which are very hard to avoid (Specially depending of your position) and can deal a very lot of damage.
3) You are dead. Not Big Soup Rice
If anything make sure you can die the longer on the level as possible. If you are bad at the game or wanna speedrun and take as much damage as possible, you might end using all your 1-UPs before a boss, a big wave of enemies, or a hazard like this level.
Nonetheless, confirm that you want to use the 1-UP. You will also have a few seconds of invulnerability. So if any big attacks or in this case AOE hazards continues, you can ignore it.
4) Completion Completed
Congrats. Now you don’t have to worry that much about having only 29% when you beat the level, spending days and weeks grinding to max out a specific character and/or skills, or having to rerun bosses over and over. If anything, this allows you to get all three stars right away without having to wait until very late game. So keep playing the game and farm some Zenny every now and then, and go full braindead speedrun to beat the most troublesome stages.
