The Panel DC Achievements Guide

Welcome to our The Panel DC Achievements Guide. In this guide, we will show you how to collect all achievements for The Panel DC.

A Quick Run & A Very Quick Run

As previously mentioned, these are the speedrun achievements.
You need to finish the game in under 6 minutes (A Quick Run) and 5 minutes (A Very Quick Run).
If you follow the optimized steps below, the achievements shouldn’t be very difficult.

A very important note: The in-game timer is misleading. Don’t pay any attention to it.

  • I unlocked both achievements in a run when my timer was far above 5:00.
  • Instead, the achievements are based on real time.

If you are having trouble, here are some general tips:

  • Always finish your run, even if you think that you will fail.
  • Follow the steps on a second monitor/your phone.
  • As a last resort, try editing/reordering the steps in a way that makes sense to you.
