Santa's Rampage Achievements

Note that these achievements must be earned separately for the standalone and integrated versions of this level.

Image Achievement Description Notes/Tips
Achi-DLC-Santa-BloodyIncompetent Bloody Incompetent Prove your incompetence by leaving a worse mess and clock off Cover part of the level in blood using a dirty mop or by dropping viscera, then punch out. "Painting" a full wall or two should be enough. This can be paired with "Thunder Candle", since the player's death makes a large mess.
Achi-DLC-Santa-Cleanliness Cleanliness is Godliness Completely clean all mess in Santa's Workshop and clock off
Achi-DLC-Santa-ChristmasCrisis Christmas Crisis Corrected Completely clean Santa's Workshop without breaking any Christmas items and clock off Up to 3 Christmas items can be broken while still earning the achievement[4]. The only real "breakable" Christmas items in the level are the hanging ball ornaments. The glass bottles of whiskey are considered trash, so breaking/burning them is not penalized.
Achi-DLC-Santa-Sanitized Sanitized Earth Completely clean all mess and destroy every Christmas item in Santa's Workshop and clock off The "Christmas items" are: ball ornaments, candles, candy canes, present boxes, figurines, toy guns, and Santa hats[4]. To be safe, the player can simply burn everything in the level they can pick up (such as cloth dolls, stools, and lanterns).
Achi-DLC-Santa-DayFunkDied-2 The Day the Funk Died Bring about the sad meeting of Ice-Cold Banger to fire Place the Ice-Cold Banger in the fireplace and leave it until it disappears.

Trivia: The Ice-Cold Banger was formerly known as "The Funk Ninja", with a different icon and the description "Bring about the sad meeting of Funk Ninja to fire".

Achi-DLC-Santa-SantaHats Santa Hats Must Die! Incinerate 50 Santa hats, the symbol of everything you hate There are 6 hats in total. As a "shortcut", one can gather all 6 hats, save, burn the hats, clock out, reload the save, and repeat until the counter hits 50. It is not 100% reliable however, due to lag in Steam's progress syncing. When the player dies, a hat is included in the resulting viscera.
Achi-DLC-Santa-ThunderCandle Thunder Candle Requisition a new replacement janitor through the use of TNT Ignite some TNT (or throw it in the fireplace) and stand close to it.
