    @SpaceKatdet The problem is:

    This is a Collect-a-thon game, the entire point of the game is collecting stuff. The people who made the game know about this because 90% of the achievements in this set are about that.

    How does it makes sense to prevent me from completing a bunch of other achievements because of a single one?

    And Banjo-Kazooie isn't even a short game. I can't just do it on another run or something because otherwise I would have to replay the whole game again. No you have to purposedly handicap yourself just so you can get a single achievement at the end of the game, and then after that you'll have to re-enter all the other levels, just to get all the stuff you had to ignore for "some reason" during the first time.

    I'm gonna assume you can complete the game and get this achievement and then go back and get the rest of the honeycomb pieces right
    Gregolas 8 Apr 2023 00:41
    To answer my previous post, yes, you can.

    Worst achievement ever...

    So the first one that everybody got https://retroachievements.org/achievement/51073 ruin this achievement?

    I was really excited about this set until I saw this one. I hate this. It belongs in a challenge subset, not in the main set.

    Anyone want to have mercy on the rest of us and share a save file at the end of the game without any extra honeycombs?

    Goofy ass achievement... literally went in to the game KNOWING about it and still failed, all because I dropped through the left pipe in Clanker's Cavern which contains a hollow honeycomb piece that you can't even see. @Max207 makes a great point: this is a collectathon game - I don't want to have to have one eye on a walkthrough specifically to make sure I DON'T collect something which will necessitate a whole new playthrough.

    This Banjo-Kazooie Save Editor may be of use to some folks:

    I got everything else done and did this last basically as a full clear to get Mastery and it popped as I hopped in the cauldron and got to Grunty. Oh well, I'll take it

    I really don't get the hate for this achievement. Pretty much every single Zelda or any game with heart pieces/life upgrades have 2 achievements:- Beat the game with full upgrades. & Beat the game with no upgrade. It will always require two playthroughs, maybe take a gap between playing the game. Unless you truly love the game and want to play 100% first and then do a blitzing fast run with no life upgrade

    ruined

    This ABSOLUTELY ruins the set, because it takes you super out of the experience, missables already shouldn't be a thing in a game this long, and one where you have to play the game PURPOSELY avoiding collectibles? While "Grab all Collectibles" is already an achievement for EACH WORLD?

    It's not even a skill issue or anything, since there's ALREADY an achievement for perfecting the final boss, so this one here is just pointless.

    Anyone defending it is goofy.
    rhas777 12 Dec 2023 23:38
    If you guys are whining about this achievement, then don't even try to play pretty much every Zelda game.
    rhas777 12 Dec 2023 23:40
    There's no need for 2 playthroughs. Beat the game normally, then collect every Empty Honeycomb you left behind.
    evansfm428 18 Dec 2023 19:26
    I accidentally collected one holly honeycomb, that's fine right? As long as I don't collect 6 to extend the life bar it's all good?
    PaddyShade 18 Dec 2023 19:35
    @evansfm428, the first comment asks the same thing and it looks like that should be fine as long as you don't extend it
    Ph0enixL0rd 22 Dec 2023 18:04
    I wish I realized before completing Click Clock Woods that you can get this cheevo and collect all empty honeycombs in one play through. Just collect the empty honeycombs after beating the game. This would allow you to master this set in one play through.

    Does "complete the game" mean view the credits (after the game show) or defeat Grunty?
    ChaosXeloc 1 Feb 2024 02:46
    Putting in my two cents as another hater of this achievement. It's just against the spirit of the game to intentionally skip a collectible. It's not particularly fun in other games either, but I find this one to be particularly annoying because it's also not challenging (and I didn't notice it was even an achievement until halfway through the game, so I'm also salty about it).

    Complete the game means defeat Grunty
