Crowdsurfing
G~40

Collide with the Spectators (Not achievable in splitscreen)

Easy enough the first race of the game will be USA, Dulutch SX. After the first turn which will be a big horse shoe there will be a big drop hug the left side of the track. The go on the left side of the orange fence and plow into a group of people.

HeadSplat
G~60

Land on top of another player (Not achievable in splitscreen)

This to can be achieved on USA, Dulutch SX. SImply try to land on a guys head after you hit a jump charge up a second before the jump using A and try to hit someone. You can also at the start launch out of the whole and ram the group hitting A you are bound to get it. If not this will pop before the game is beaten.

Untouchable
G~60

Win a career race with your sled intact (Not achievable in splitscreen)

This to is easily obtained of the frist race. Just do not ram anyone hit obsticles, or land your sled to where it wrecks and you will coast into this one. You should get this one along with "Roadrunner".

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/ru/U7/0oCLiGJhbC9FFQUZXFRRGEQxL2FjaC8wLzEAAAAA5+fn-RTltQ==.jpg
Roadrunner
G~40

Lead a race from start to finish (Not achievable in splitscreen)

This to is done easily on the first race. Just have the sled floored and pulling back on the Left Thumbstick to transfer your weight to the track. When you start launch out and get in the center of the track and this is a easy 40. You may have have to reset a couple of times because if you start and at any second it flashes your position from 1st or 2ed or anything else you must restart.

Woodcutter
G~40

SECRET ACHIEVEMENT

Collide with 3 trees in a race. (Not achievable in splitscreen)

The second race is USA Dulutch Nationals. It is a good sized track loaded with trees on the left and right sides of the track. Just ram your sled into 3 of them and you got this.

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/G+/wa/0ICLiGJhbC9GFQUZXFRRGEQxL2FjaC8wLzIAAAAA5+fn-zXsAA==.jpg
Bully
G~30

Take down one opponent (Not achievable in splitscreen)

Please refer to "Rampage".

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/iB/T6/0YCLiGJhbC9HFQUZXFRRGEQxL2FjaC8wLzMAAAAA5+fn-tUUkw==.jpg

Take down three opponents in a row without crashing (Not achievable in splitscreen)

Please refer to "Rampage".

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/cf/9Y/1ICLiGJhbC9AFQUZXFRRGEQxL2FjaC8wLzQAAAAA5+fn+3f-ag==.jpg
Rampage
G~70

Take down four opponents in a row without crashing (Not achievable in splitscreen)

This is one of the more difficult one's. First this is much easier later in the game with a middle class or top of the line sled. You need speed to wreck people easily. Setup a single race at USA Duluth SX for 9 laps. At the start Launch and ram the guy next to you hitting A hopefully you will run him over and there is a easy one already. Follow the pack up the first hill hitting A maybe getting another easy wreck. If not you got 8 laps. To wreck them you need quite a bit of speed. Huge the corners on the track and let them go wide get some speed going and T-Bone them right infront of the seat or right where the engine bay is. Hopefully you wreck them without them wrecking you. This do's take some time so be patient it will come.

While trying to get this you will also get "Bully" and "Berzerk"

Frozen
G~50

Hold a stunt for 4 seconds (Not achievable in splitscreen)

I accomplished this in single race in Canada's Air Master ST Track. When you start the race do a little zip-zap around the little sign,cone. Hit the big ramp pulling back on the left humbstick while going up to ramp for traction and charging A for a second before the top of the hill. Release A and hold one of the many stunts you can hold for 4 seconds. Or till your about to wreck. I did the Superman and it worked pretty good you want someone that has excellent speed in stunts. If you don't get it try again it took a couple times to time how long to get back on the quad to not wreck.

You will also unlock "Hangtime"

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/4g/e4/1YCLiGJhbC9BFQUZXFRRGEQxL2FjaC8wLzUAAAAA5+fn+pcH+Q ==.jpg

Wire Fu
G~60

Perform a three stunt combo (Not achievable in splitscreen)

I accomplished this in single race in Canada's Air Master ST Track. When you start the race do a little zip-zap around the little sign,cone. Hit the big ramp pulling back on the left humbstick while going up to ramp for traction and charging A for a second before the top of the hill. Release A and do a Barhop or Tsunami three times and land it. I got it doing the Tsunami it is a quick move somehow. But this to will take a few times to get the timing down in between each of the 3 times you need to go back into the stunt to land it. Three stunt combo means you hit 1 hill and must do 3 stunts in the air that 1 time.

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/Ag/ru/0ICLiGJhbC9FCxoGG19TVkQxL2FjaC8wLzExAAAAAOfn5--BCh4=.jpg
Backflip
G~25

Perform a backflip (Not achievable in splitscreen)

Please refer to "Double Backflip"

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/Vw/6Z/14CLiGJhbC9CFQUZXFRRGEQxL2FjaC8wLzYAAAAA5+fn+LYOTA ==.jpg
Double Backflip
G~50

Perform a double backflip (Not achievable in splitscreen)

You must hit a jump and and hit and hold RB while pulling back on the left thumbstick for 2 full rotations. 2 locations to try are Canada's Air Masters (ST) and Canada's Whitehorse XC (XC). At Air Masters when you start simply do a zig-zag to be looking at the big ramp in the center jump over it turn around and this is the jump you should be trying it on. So the back side of the big jump. Or at Whitehorse you can try on the straight away with huge jump where you will be trying for "Orbit"

Please refer to "Double Frontflip"

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/Vw/6Z/14CLiGJhbC9CFQUZXFRRGEQxL2FjaC8wLzYAAAAA5+fn+LYOTA ==.jpg
Double Frontflip
G~50

Perform a double frontflip (Not achievable in splitscreen)

Please refer to "Double Backflip"

Frontflip is much easier then the backflip and should be attempted the exact same way but instead of pulling back on the left thumbstick you simply push forward.

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/1B/WD/0ICLiGJhbC8xFQUZXFRRGEQxL2FjaC8wL0UAAAAA5+fn-6wVzw==.jpg

Orbit
G~50

Stay airborne for 5 seconds (Not achievable in splitscreen)

This can also be attempted at both of Canda's Air Masters (ST) and Whitehorse XC (XC). On Air Masters try getting it on the the center ramp with one of the fastest sled's and boost. It will take a little time and messin around. Or you can make it really easy wait till you beat career. Get the fastest sled fill your boost and start a single player race on Canada's Whitehorse. On the straightaway hit your boost and hit the big jump. With the fastest sled and boost it will pop no problem.

If having problem after you have tried those out check this fourm here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=137117)

Please refer to "Boostaholic"

Boostaholic
G~60

Stay in adrenaline mode for 60 seconds (Not achievable in splitscreen)

By far the most challenging. You must be holding the X button down for a full 60 seconds. In order to obtain or maintain boost you need to keep performing stunts or in air. When choosing a rider choose one with Excellent agility and stamina. you can pull tricks off fast and boost last much longer with these people. There are 2 places I have to suggest for trying. First is Canada's Air Masters (ST) track. Do a single race setup and change to 5 min and 10,000 points. Once you start build your boost up and hit and hold X while going over the center big jump doing stunts to maintain boost. Just keep going over turning around and doing again. Just this is hard to do with skinny landings. The second option I found was to setup a race at USA Duluth SX (SX) track no opponents. Start the race when hitting those first little bunny hills you can do little fast tricks like barhops to gain and maintain boost. once full go around the track doing stunts on ever little jump. The special one is to do a quick trick under the bridge on the back stretch. If done right on either track you will pop both at once hopefully. Just be patient this one can be a pain.

If your still having problems with this check this fourm out here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=137144)

Thanks to Streetrunner77 on the tips, hints on Canada's Air Master track

Stingy
G~30

Collect $50,000 in career mode without spending them

Simple enough. You start with $10,000 every first play is worth $5,000. Do's not take long. The only you can buy is aftermarket parts for sled's otherwise new sleds are given to you as you get first. So save your money until this unlocks. Mine had unlocked after I beat Canada's Quebec Open (SX) with all 1st places on the races beat.

Hoarder
G~30

Unlock half of all unlockables in career mode

If you are going for Pack Rat this will pop along the way. I had this unlock on my 10th 1st Place Victory. Pretty much career related as long as you are getting 1st you can't miss it.

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/mP/cA/14CLiGJhbC81FQUZXFRRGEQxL2FjaC8wL0EAAAAA5+fn+C-3gw==.jpg
Pack Rat
G~50

Unlock all unlockables in career mode

All of these items MUST be unlocked for this achievement.

-Videos
-Sleds
-Outfits

Here are the requirements

-1st place in ALL 27 events
Those consist of the SX, XC, ST, HC events

- You MUST beat these 2 in a time of 2:30:00 or LESS
That means they both start you with 3:20:00 seconds to reach a score of 3000 points and you must reach 3000 points with 0:50:00 seconds or more.

-Canada's Air Masters (ST)
-Russia's Stunt Challenge (ST)

At first this seems challenging but very simple when you get later in the game. You a very fast sled and pick a group of ramps you like him just that group. When you launch over simply turn around and hit the other and keep repeaeting. It is nice to get some rings for a bonus though.

Trick here don't keep doing the same tricks go at every angle on the left thumbstick then do it on the right. When I beat them in time I didn't do any flips. I beat both in around 2 minuite area. Once those 2 times are beaten and you have 1st in everything this is yours.

And that complete's this achievement guide any info you would like added or comments don't hesitate to contact me.

There not to bad. boostaholic, rampage can both be frustrating but there still not bad orbit and the stunt ones just wait till you get the best sleds makes them cake. Definitley doable on a weekend hell in one day even only took like 9 to 10 hrs to beat and write guide.

hey great guide and game 640 points in an hour!!! just got rampage and others quick and easy n thought i'd share. just like you said i set it to nine laps, but went with duluth national (has lots of turns) let everyone take off and then catch up to them from behind, at a turn while the riders side ways ram him towards the rear and once you've got him going around (kinda like a pit manuever) hit "a" to hop an it should roll him. i only have the second sled they give you and had this by the third lap hope this helps. thanx again for the guide

I think you should expand the Road Map part a little.
Specifically, point out that you should not spend any money until you get the Stingy achievement, to make that easier.

Rampage
G~70

Take down four opponents in a row without crashing (Not achievable in splitscreen)

OMFG, this was such a pain in the ASS, on my first race I was able to get the three knockdowns w/o trying, and then when actually trying all I could ever get was the third one. That is until I attempted out a decent strategy that actually worked GREAT.

As soon as the race started I would veer off to the left towards the larger group of racers, I would then hit "A" to jump and would literally have the other racer(s) drive under me and get knocked off. I would make sure I would get 2 knock offs right at the start of the race I would then stay put and position my snowmobile sideways and wait for the other racers to "lap me". When i saw them coming close to me on the mini map I would start jumping and boom they would fly into me while I was in mid air and the would take them selves out, after fine tuning the strategy this hour and a half attempt at an achievement then only took two minutes.

Hope this helps anyone who had trouble with it like I was, ALSO the race was the Demon Cup in Canada for those who care

Hey I wanted to know if anyone else has unlocked Adrenaline Junkie and Boostaholic at the same time and the achievements were out of order. I just played a level and they didn't unlock during the game, but after I finished the race it gave me both achievements. Only problem is that I got the 60sec 1st and 30sec after, so I was just wondering if anyone else unlocked it this way.

Mine unlocked this way as well. I was on one of the last stunt races/shows, you unlock. I built my boost up on the middle hill and then hit and held X, while using the hand brake to stay in the middle lane going back and forth over the middle hill. I was able to stay boosted until I hit 3000 points this way. I am sure I could have stayed forever if they game let me.


One thing I noticed about the achievement guide. You do not have to win every race to unlock everything. I have a handful of silvers and bronzes and didn't even complete the last race you unlock at all and the achievement popped for me.


Also for the double flips, I went to Whitehorse with the last sled you unlock. I set the race to a few laps, in case I decided that I needed boost, and no opponents. I tried a few times and had no luck. I went back and changed my rider to one of the two dressed in red, they have excellent agility and strength. I went back to Whitehorse and nailed both achievements first goes with no boost and not hitting A at the top (never did figure out the timing for that).

You definitely dont need the top sleds. The key is having a driver with strength and ferocity. The Jack Yamm character (or whatever his name is) made the double front and back flips easy as hell.
