I'm certain I'm doing something wrong, but I can't figure out what... and speedruns don't help like they did for the other cheevs with tricky routing...
MrOwnership 2 May 2020 12:56
I added a video of the routing. If I didn't miss the blue token when jumping off of the big rock the achievement would have triggered. That jump is a little more precise here then when there are gold berries there in Anthill part 1.

So I wasn't doing something wrong? Heck, I actually got the first blue faster! It's just that one tricky one I'd convinced myself was impossible...

This one jump is extremely difficult (Got it only twice in an hour of practice). I'd advise to get it once or twice in practice so you know what to do, and just doing runs following the video's route and pray.
Sylrifaide 14 Aug 2020 21:35
The tokens after this one are easy enough, so you should only need to get it once to get the achievement. Tokens before that can be choked on, so always get them (be quick for these 3 like in the video, else reset) before the hard jump in your runs.

For the jump itself, here's what I did: I positionned myself on the rock, did a full jump towards the end of the branches, and jumped immediately upon landing on the farthest tip of that branch (and butt slam to extend jump, like the video does)

And I thought you had mercy on this one, silly me LOL.

YES!!!! Finally, like Sylrifaide said, it's a two-timed jump. One blind jump to reach the branch and another with a stomp at the end, really hard.

The second blue token near Hopper is awful. And the fact the instructional video shows them missing it is cherry on the cake

So I took a slightly different approach for that jump than I’ve seen mentioned.

What I did was position myself right near the edge of the rock just to the right of the branch section, and make sure I’m lined up with the medal which is in sight. Then, after stepping forwards literally only a few times, I jumped from the branch which is just below the edge of the rock before butt bouncing at the right time to get maximum distance from the jump. You have to jump way sooner than it seems, or you’ll just run straight off the edge.

Doing it like this, I was able to make it fairly consistently. Took me just over an hour to get the achievement overall.
