NieR: Automata has a hilariously unique mechanic which allows you to buy achievements. This unconventional process makes things way easier for achievement and trophy hunters. However, there’s still work to be done before you can access this mechanic.

What You Need to Do to Buy Achievements
To buy achievements in NieR: Automata, you’ll first need to beat the game at least three times.
Replaying and beating the game multiple times is a central theme in NieR: Automata. If you haven’t played the game yet, or haven’t beaten it at least once, just know that each playthrough will be different, making it non-monotonous.
Where to Buy Achievements in Nier: Automata
Once you’ve officially gone through 3 cycles of the game, make your way to the Resistance Camp and speak to the Strange Resistance Woman.
You can already speak with this NPC on the previous playthrough. However, you can’t buy achievements from her until you reach the fourth cycle of the game.
When speaking to her, select the “Request unlocking you-know-what” option. This opens up the secret shop where you can buy achievements in the game. However, it should be noted that the achievements in the secret shop are very costly.
The achievements range from 50,000Gs to 200,000Gs. That said, the thought of buying achievements in the game may seem convenient, but you’ll still need to farm for a lot of money to get 100% of the achievements.
