View Full Version : Very Easy Method For All Medals & Infinity!

Using the following method it is possible to get all six medals, Infinity and an average of 300 stars without singing and without using the 'Mic next to the Tv speaker' method.

Scores using this method have ranged from 2.5 million to 4.4 million. I got Infinity at 4.4 million, my wife got it at 4.1 million.

Here is how it's done:

On a single player game select the song "Bust A Move"

When the song starts make sure you turn the mic volume all the way down using the left trigger, then when the drum beat starts, keep hitting X in time to the beat to get the party medal straight away (its a pain if you leave it until later).

Now for the genius part!

Instead of singing or using the Tv speakers, rub the mic up and down your clothes (On the thigh, arm, chest it really doesn't matter) in time to the vocals. If you are quite vigarous then you will be incidentally shaking the tambourine at the same time which will build up your star power very quickly.

Occaisonally the star power will activate by itself but if it does not, hit the mic or shake it harder to activate it immediately. Other than the instrumental sections don't bother waiting around for a special moment to activate it because you will rebuild the bar in no time and earn even more stars and a higher score.

so long as you rub the mic in time to the vocal track you will get all of the other five medals.

When i tap X at the beginging till the song lyrics start i don't get the medal is there something i'm doing wrong?

you need to wait until the drum beat starts or the button tapping will not count.

No infinity but a high score of just under 4 mil and loads of stars. Good for the times when I can't sing but want to gain stars (flat mates don't like me singing!). Thank's for the tip :D

You can keep tapping all the way through - sometimes the medal takes a little longer to unlock. As long as you're in beat with the music the medal will unlock :) Keep trying - practice makes perfect.

Infinity worked great for me, And so did the party medals.
At the beggining of Bust A Move, I just listened to the beat and tapped RB To it, and get it in the first couple of lines.

i tried this and got a good score but need more practice to get infinity
I got it by holding the mic up to the tv speakers. and got Infifnity on my 1st attempt.

I got just over 4 million. But you have to get all the medals or you wont get infinity

This works great for getting all 12 medals, but my starstream will not work until the last word in the line before a break. So I keep missing the starstream :(

I dont see how this is easier then the tv method though. When you put it in front of your tv you can go do something else for 5 mins, for this you have to sit there and rub the mic. Why make that amout of effort?

It works just as long as a noise is made though. You can clap, blow or do anything the mic would pic up and still get infinity.

No offence but I'm sure you're wrong.

If you leave the mic at the tv and go away, you WON'T get infinity. You need stars for infinity. Stars you get by moving the mic. So you would HAVE to be there :p People have reported trying and getting no stars therefore no infinity, so you need stars.

I still find the ahhhhhhhhhh method of Bust a Move the best - it's very easy to just go ahhhhhhhhhh in a mic :woop:

This is getting annoying. I got 4,35 million points, all six medals, 100%, activated starpower correctly and used the noise maker perfect troughout the song. And I still havn't got this rank >.<

As Pucca Princess said, without stars you cannot get Infinity and without moving the mic you cannot get stars.

Its not a case of being easier or not, you just will not get Infinity by using the Tv method.

Hope that clears up the confusion. :)

For some unknown reason... my mics arent activating the silhouette movements?!
Starting to get a little bit pissed off with it.

Nice Hint with Bust a Move!

I would also suggest using two mics under one profile. If one mic gets all 6 and the other dosen't you still can get the achievement.

There was no conffusion I already had it. I put the tv trick in the achievement guide i made long before you wrote this. It's just the exact same method but you decided to change what sources the sound. I did say because it doesn't require pitch just sound so anything would have worked.

This doesn't work.
I've tried absolutely every idea that's been suggested on this forum multiple times and done EVERYTHING to try and get this stupid freaking achievement but it just won't go. It's insane, completely ridiculous and i want to stab someone. It makes no fucking sense whatsoever, why can't i get this stupid thing?

I also tried now, but the max was 2,5 million. Is there something wrong in my settings? Should I make some special settings before I start the song?
Could you add the points from mic 1 with mic 2?

Road2Recovery
04-13-2009, 11:34 AM
I got this first time in solo mode by whacking the mic at the start to get the party medal out the way then just humming or lalala(ing) through the mic when every i had to sing and of course activating star power when ever and making sure the mic is turned right down. After doing that i got all 6 medals and about 4.2mil score = Infinity :)

I found it easy to do on Roxette you need at least 1,800,000 including stars of approx 350 it was Hard but its out of the way now so I can chill :uzi:INFINITY.

04-20-2009, 11:28 PM
Oh man! I never thought of that. I just get a standing fan, turn it up to the highest setting and then hold the mic up to the fan for that song. I got the 220th score in the world and all 5 medals. I think my score was 4,200,000 something.
OH! I also got the Infinity Rank.

Me and my girlfriend have tried this a number of times, we got just under 4million (3,896,274 to be exact) and we did everything that was suggested for us to do!!! We don't know what else we could possibly try, we got all 12 medals and quite a few stars.... Help?! I want the achievement lol

im going to sound really dumb but i listen to my tv through headphones and to play vocals on guitar hero i just place the headphone next to my mic, is that the same thing here, or is it slightly different

Edit: i bought it now so i know how it plays, its actually quite easy

06-27-2009, 01:03 PM

i'm wondering if this thing is glitched , at first i was missing out on one medal and getting about 250 to 300 stars scoring just under 4 million , then got all 6 medals scored just over 4 million but only got 60 stars , no matter how much i shook the mic and pressed the x button.

any ideas ?

After spending hours trying to get infinity with 'Bust A Move' (I never wish to hear that song again in my life) I decided to give one of the songs I know best and am best at singing a go, so I chose 'No-one' by Alicia Keys, first attempt I got 2,100,000 about 400 stars and 5/6 medals, no Infinity. Played it through afterwards got just over 2,100,000, 400 stars and 6/6 medals and bingo, finally got the buggering thing :locked :woop::

a tip i have for those wanting infinity, just pick a song you can get 100% on (in bloom for me). get all the medals and activate star power as much as possible. i got it on my first try! if you don't know any of these songs well enough for 100% then keep trying bust a move i guess. i tried bust a move for a while than saw people were getting it on other songs. so my first thought was to try "in bloom", the song i know the best, and it paid off. i still use bust a move to get all the medal achievements so i don't strain my voice singing in bloom over and over.

Just got this on Number one hits without even trying, after months of trying to get it on the original.
Sang Karma Chameleon got just over 2.5 million and up it popped!
Think there may be a limit for different tracks as we've scored just under 4 million on another track and didn't get it.

i only just got this achievement a few hours ago, I was singing In Bloom - Nirvana, and I got just over 1mil, and all 6 medals. Its honestly the easiest song for me to play and get all 6 medals.

For me, the technique one is the hardest, i very rarely get it, and I only can get the party one on a few selected songs.

Hey can someone help me? I can only just about 3 mil on Bust A Move, and only 5 Medals ...

How do you get the Technique Medal?

Yes that's all I need to know >.>

Please PM me or something, I'm using the trick in the first post, rubbing it on my trouser leg

Either I'm doing something ridiculously wrong, or they fixed this in an update. I've only tried it twice, but only got like 500K points, and one or two medals total.. If it requires total accuracy with rubbing the mic in sync with the lyrics, I might as well just sing it because the rhythm of the lyrics alone would take a lot of practice as I have never heard this song before.. Gonna try the other song suggested here..

I´ve got 12 medals, 711 stars and 2,323.192 poonts in Yellow by singing and no infinity. More I can not do. The method with rub the micro doesn´t work for me. And with tv i become in Bust a move no infinity too.

If you know the REM one, that's the highest score I've gotten so far, lots of wavy vocal opps or whatever. No infinity yet though...

I can't get the 6th medal, the one for technique, to save my life. White Flag is the only song (among those several I tried) I can always get 5 medals on (Take on Me is close second).

I was able to do enough vibrato only once, ever, and it was during Take on Me. I wasn't able to repeat that, and I tried all the methods I've read about: TV, fan, cloth rubbing, singing it myself, obviously (actually, the only time I've done enough vibrato to get the technique medal was when I've sung myself).

If anyone has any other advice on how to do this and can describe it in detail, I would be more than happy to hear it. I am going completely mad here.

Also, I don't see how anyone is able to get all 6 medals on Bust a Move. Is it possible to pull a vibrato there at any time? Or is there some other technique to use to get the medal?

Edit: Oh, now I see that it's possible to get the technique medal by just performing a song without mistakes. I actually was able to get all but Rhythm medal during Bust a Move. Strange thing though, I was using both mics at the same time, holding them exactly the same distance away from my mouth, still, I was able to get around 300,000 more points with one mic than the other.

Second edit: Wasn't able to get the technique medal again during Bust a Move no matter how hard I tried. Meh.

Okay, I'm going to share my experience, as I had problems with the achievement (as seen in the post above).

I really had hard time getting the achievement in the original Lips, but got it the day I bought I Love the 80s. I'm not tone-deaf, but I'm not a very good singer either. Regardless, I can get the Infinity rank 9 of 10 times while performing Culture Club's Do You Really Want to Hurt Me. Not only I love this song greatly, it's very easy to sing and get all the medals for.
