Introduction:
This game is based on the movie of the same name. There are no collectibles and the game is straightforward. It has two single player campaigns (Autobots and Decepticons), which are the same story from different sides. Most of the achievements are earned by playing through the game, but are not necessarily story related. They require you to earn medals by getting certain times on missions. The entire game is based around these times.

There is a multiplayer mode which you can get most of the achievements through player matches by yourself. No achievement requires Ranked matches, but a few like the viral do require other players.

The cheats do disable achievements and saving.

Playthrough:
Playthrough each campaign going for the Platinum times. Pay attention to the Unlockables though as you will want to unlock the characters as soon as possible. They are a huge help in getting better times. For example, the first Decepticon Shanghai mission you use Sideways. To unlock all the Shanghai characters you have to get 10 headshots with Sideways. Wor o this first, then just restart the mission and go for the best time. You will now be able to use all characters for the other 5 Shanghai missions.

Cleaning Up:
When you beat the campaign you can then go back and work on unlocks you have not finished and get Platinums. By doing this after completing the game you will have the characters unlocked and purchased more upgrades which help your times. You will continue to earn energon working towards Platinum, but if you get all Platinums and don't have enough for (Do the Math) or haven't purchased all upgrades (Power to the People) continue to replay the final mission as it gives you the biggest payout in the shortest amount of time.

These steps are the same for both Autobot and Decepticon Campaigns, and the Decepticon can be slightly easier for Platinums, but also requires you to earn more energon and kill more enemies.

Multiplayer:
These can be done at any time. Most can be done by yourself in a private match on Control Point gametype, but all can be done in a player or ranked match. You will have to find someone with the viral to unlock that achievement.

Medal in all Autobot Cairo Missions
Complete each mission in the zone earning at least a bronze medal. This should come naturally as bronze is very easy to get for most missions. You can check your time in the War Room. Just make sure you play all missions, as you can progress through the story without completing each and every one. You can move around the map and check to see which missions you have not completed in each zone.

Defeat Megatron - Autobot Campaign
Story related. You will fight Megatron in the first Cairo mission. Just use a character you are familiar with to make it easier and fill your overdrive by killing the enemies then save it for the bosses.

Unlock all Autobot Unlockables
Go to unlockables screen in War Room to see all requirements for each unlockable. You can work towards most of these as you are going through your first playthrough and still get decent medals. Then you can go back and finish up anything you don’t have like the travel so much distance ones or use boost so many times.

Also these count even if you quit mid-level, you do not have to complete the mission for your unlockable progress to count. This comes in handy for the ones like the ratchet heal unlockable since a good area is at the beginning of the mission. A note on this though, although they count if you quit out, many times it will not save letting you power down and resume unless you have bought something or completed a mission.

Purchase All Autobot Upgrades
Keep spending Energon as you earn it throughout the campaign. If this is not unlocked by the end, go back and replay missions until you have enough money. Will also come working towards “Do the Math” which you can also refer to. The final boss mission gives quite a bit so is a good one to replay.

Eliminate 250 Decepticons - Autobot Campaign
Should come naturally when completing the campaign, but if not just keep replaying a mission with a lot of Decepticons killing as many as possible (usually the mission type where you have to kill so many enemies).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/968/-dCQpQ==.jpgDo the Math 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Acquire 2,000,000 Energon in the Autobot Campaign
You will probably not get this on the first playthrough, just go back and replay the final boss level in Cairo. You earn over 200,000 each time you beat the boss. You can also keep replaying the race mission in East Coast in Downtown with Breakaway. Also all the upgrades for "Power to the People" cost for than 2,000,000 so you can work towards that and get this on the way. This does not require the player to have 2,000,000 at once, just earned in total through the campaign. This is tracked in Global Stats from the pause menu in War Room.

Earn Platinum Medals on ALL Autobot Missions
This can take a little while. Try to get Platinum on your first playthrough, but if you miss it no big deal, just continue on through the game. There are unlockables that will unlock all characters for missions in a certain zone. Complete the requirement for the unlockable and then you can go back and retry the mission with a different character, which can make things much easier. Skillshots are also your friend, if you see them, shoot them. They stop the clock for 10 seconds each. It is not a bad idea to go through a level looking for them, when you know where they are then restart and play level for time.

You can check your time in the War Room. The timer also updates in the corner of the screen in the mission telling you the time you need for the current displayed medal.

Check this thread for any tips on specific levels. http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?p=2091608&posted=1#post2091608

Same as Autobot campaign (also see "The Dagger's Tip"), complete each mission in the zone earning at least a bronze. Should come naturally as bronze is very easy to get. You can check your time and medal times in the Decepticon War Room. Also see “A True Decepticon” as it requires all Platinums.

Defeat Optimus Prime - Decepticon Campaign
Story related. You will fight Optimus on the East Coast US. If you are having trouble, use Megatron and fill your overdrive meter by killing the first enemies with special shots. Save it for Optimus. When he appears, use Megatron’s special and then use overdrive with his primary weapon.

Purchase All Decepticon Upgrades
The Upgrades screen is in the War Room, and this requires all upgrades full to level 3. Keep spending your Energon as you earn it throughout the campaign on upgrades. If this is not unlocked by the end, replay missions until you have enough money. Replay the final boss mission in Cairo as it gives quite a lot of money in a fairly short amount of time.

Will also come working towards “Break the Bank”.

Eliminate 350 Autobots - Decepticon Campaign
Should come naturally when completing the campaign and working towards Platinum medals, but if not just keep replaying a mission with a lot of Autobots (usually the missions where you need to destroy alot of enemies).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/968/--GZEA==.jpgBreak the Bank 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Acquire 3,000,000 Energon in the Decepticon Campaign
You will not get this on the first playthrough, just go back and replay the final level “Defeat the Fallen”. You earn over 200,000 each time. You can also keep replaying the race mission in Shanghai on the Spiral Highway zone. Don’t worry about time, just make sure you get all Skillshots and kill the enemies for the bonus objectives.

Earn Platinum Medals on ALL Decepticon Missions
Same as Autobot Campaign, see “A True Autobot”. Try to get Platinum on your first playthrough, but if you miss one, just continue through the game and go back later to replay the mission. You can unlock more characters in each zone by meeting the requirements posted in the Unlockables screen in War Room. See "A True Autobot" for more information.

Misc./Either Campaign

Earn a Platinum Medal - Either Campaign
You can check the times required for each medal as well as current medal earned from the War Room. The mission timer, in the corner of the screen, will update with the medal times as it counts. Playing through the game normally you will probably get Gold, Platinum, and maybe Silver. Bronze, you may have to replay a mission and actually wait for the time to accumulate without completing the mission. Then whenever the timer is in the bronze timeframe do the last objective the mission requires.

Try a race like the Decepticon one in Spiral Highway in Shanghai, as times in general for those are shorter so you can just get right before the end then wait for the timer to go into whatever medal time you need, then finish.

Make it into the Top 1000 on SP Leaderboards - Either Campaign
Place in the top of the leaderboards in either time or energon score. That is two different chances for each leaderboard. This counts for each mission or the overall of a campaign as well. So you only have to be on the top for one mission in either Autobot or Decepticon missions and you do not have to complete the campaign first. Check the leaderboards from the main menu or the War Room. Also some people have had trouble unlocking this, but if you check the leaderboards it should unlock right then if you are high enough.

Unlock a Single Unlockable - Either Campaign
Most are earned throughout the campaign so this will unlock naturally. This will unlock automatically after you beat your first Shanghai mission (2nd level in the game).

Purchase an Upgrade - Either Campaign
Easily done after the first mission. After completing first mission, go to Upgrades screen in War Room and press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png to spend your Energon. You will notice the level starting to rise. Each upgrade has 3 levels, but this unlocks after completing just one level of any upgrade. Also see “Power to the People”.

Unlocks automatically after completing the first mission in either campaign.

Fill OVERDRIVE Meter - Either Campaign
Simply fill your overdrive. You will do this constantly throughout the campaigns. Special shots (Jump shots, Head shots, Combo, Advanced Melee, etc.) add to your overdrive, which you can then use to become more powerful and invincible for a short time. You will probably get this on the first mission after the tutorial.

Multiplayer
All of these can easily be boosted with 2 people, but most by yourself. They can all be done in PLAYER match. You can also start a player match by yourself with all private slots.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/968/UPyXKcM=.jpgChoose a Side 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win one RANKED/PLAYER MATCH game as Autobots and one as Decepticons
**Requires minimum of 2 players**
Go online and play matches as Autobots until you win one, then change to Decepticons and play until you win. You can do this in any game type so pick one you like or are good at and play. You can also use the Control Point trick (See "Hold!") in player match and collect everything.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/968/UP130VA=.jpgHold! 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win a Control Point round without losing a control point in a RANKED/PLAYER MATCH game
So there is a Control Point trick. Create a player match, Control Point game by yourself will all private slots and begin the game without anyone else present. Now travel around the map capturing each control point.

This is also an easy way to play and get the other online achievements. Notes were made in specific achievements where this can really help.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/968/UPzoNSQ=.jpgFollow the Leader 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
While playing One Shall Stand, as the leader, kill the opposing leader in a RANKED/PLAYER MATCH game
**Requires minimum or 2 people**
To do this is to play in a One Shall Stand match (ranked or player) and when you are the leader, go look for the other leader and kill them. The leader is decided by the person with the highest score at the beginning of the round. It is random first round.

You can also boost this with a friend. Just start a One Shall Stand player match and begin with just you and one friend. When in game you will both be the leaders on opposite sides. Go kill the other person.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/968/UP0Izbc=.jpgLife of the Party 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Host one game of each game type in a PLAYER MATCH game
**Requires minimum of 2 people for 2 of the matches**
Simply go through the list hosting games and changing game types after each one. The match needs to be completed not just started, so you can put the time limit or kill count lower to speed things up. You can host most game types by yourself, except Team Deathmatch and One Shall Stand. They both require minimum of 2 people.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/968/UP8a-R4=.jpgSmells Like Victory 50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win a Match as Each of the 15 Default Characters
You will have to play as all selectable Autobot and Decepticons. Just keep playing online matches selecting different characters after each win. This will come with enough time, but you can also use the control point trick described in "Hold!".

Also Optimus and Megatron will not count towards this achievement if playing One Shall Stand game type, they have to be played in other game types.

The unlockable and pre-order bonus characters do not count towards this so don’t worry about them.

Just picked up the game.

Can confirm to get the leaderboard achievements easily, simply play through the tutorial and register a score. Then once that is completed, head to the leaderboards, press 'Y' which will activate the friends leaderboard and all three should pop up. I am the only one on my friends list with the game, but some how I was ranked 236, still good enough to obtain all 3.

[EDIT]: I don't know if you are able to get this even if you are out of the 1000's...I got it because out of everyone I was ranked 236 (am currently ranked 4th in the world for decept LOL)

Yeah he told me he was writing the guide when I posted about being the first one in America to 1k. And as far as the best characters go, think about what your objective is. Long Haul, Starscream and Megatron are the only way to go with all the killing objectives or escorting. Same with Ironhide and Breakaway on the Autobots.

Definitely just unlock some more characters as it makes it much much easier for some levels. Check dethklok's unlockable guide or the war room and you can get it. Those are the time consuming ones, but you should be able to get them without too much work.

I am not sure if it matters or not seeing as I never have helped on a guide before; however, I find it funny that the medal achievements arent stackable.

Somehow I have the Smells like Victory achievement (win a match with all 15 default characters) but not the Choose a Side achievement (win a match with a transformer from each side). Anyone else have this problem? A solution?

Well there's an option that you can turn on that wont restrict faction (you can use autobots on decepticon team and vice versa) so maybe you did that?

You should say you have to look at the leaderboard, cause I finished the tutorial and was like damn I have to do the entire campaign, then came here and was like why didnt my achievement unlock then. So I decided to go look at the leaderboards to see what time I need for those and all 3 popped up(I was ranked 348) for the training.

Also can the viral achievement be for SP achievements you both have or does it need to be MP?

06-24-2009, 04:51 AM
Thanks i will make a note on the leaderboards. I did not look at them, but sometimes it takes a min to update and maybe looking at them forced it to update right then.

The viral is a specific achievement that is done in MP. You have to kill someone that has that specific achievement already (the devs have it so are playing this week to get it started, but a bunch of us already have it). After you kill them immediately start hitting right on the d-pad and it will unlock. It can be glitchy sometimes and I will make a note of that in the guide.

Just to be really specific, can I get the multiplayer achievements with 2 controllers in a private match?

OT: Is there free roam like the last one? I saw the video review off IGN, but it sounded like you do a mission, go back to the war room/whatever, do another mission, back to the war room again.

Win a Match as Each of the 15 Default Characters
You will have to play as all selectable Autobot and Decepticons. Just keep playing online matches selecting different characters after each win. This will come with enough time, but you can also use the control point trick described in "Hold!".

Also Optimus and Megatron will not count towards this achievement if playing One Shall Stand game type, they have to be played in other game types.

The unlockable and pre-order bonus characters do not count towards this so donít worry about them.




maybe i missed it but can this be done in player matches??

Great guide, you beat me to making it. ;)

Thanks for the free roam answer.

Are you sure you can't get the achievements with 2 controllers in Player matches. The achievement descriptions says RANKED/PLAYER.

C Fresh
06-25-2009, 04:30 AM
The matches DO NOT have to be Ranked, i repeat they can be done in player matches, hence the Ranked/Player. Most of them can all be done by yourself without anyone else even there. I have made notes for those achievements where you will need a second person. I am not sure about the second controller, honestly I am not sure this game even supports that, but can double check in a bit. If someone can get confirmation i will update the guide.

There is free roam, but it is literally free roam around the mission areas, with nothing to do. You can admire the art I guess. Otherwise you go back to the War Room after each mission. So mission structure is not free roam.

I have been updating it with notes from everyone and will continue to do that for a little bit before submitting it. Thanks for all the comments guys.

There is no second player support :( I tried earlier and it wouldn't recognize a second controller at all in Multiplayer.

I don't think that's the case. I'm apparently ranked 414 and I have only got 1 Platinum medal and I haven't even completed all the missions yet and this is only for the Autobots.

Jimmy C,

I see your guide is up and no one is trying to trump yours. Hopefully, the site administrators will put a sticky to it and make it official. Shoot an email to one of them. I emailed Dan Webb and he stickied my Tomb Raider Underworld guide within minutes.

I haven't rented in a while because I'm buying older games instead of burning cash on temporary rentals, but I'll get to this game when I can.

Again Congrats and good luck fine tuning the guide, if needed.

Yeah there may be some exploiting, but it ranks by total energon and total time and for each mission. So that is 23 missions per side and one each overall per side, so 48 leaderboards for time and 48 leaderboards for energon. I won't say someone next year will have an easy time getting those but anyone playing in the next month or two should not have too much of a problem.

For getting the kills while playing the decepticon mission, you can go to the mission where you destroy the museum and just kill the autobots and not destroy the building. You can rack up as many as you want here.

just so you know the cheat codes do disable achievements. I got some of the cheats out of the strategy guide and when you input them it gives a warning stating that it disables saves, online, and achievements. I put in a majority of them and they all have stated that. This includes the codes for G1 Starscream and G1 Ironhide.

For this achievement the exact number of Energon Required is 2,445,000.

Just in case anyone was wondering. I have not started the Decepticon campaign so don't know that number for sure, this is only for the Autobot campaign.

Yeah the Decepticons is the same as the Autobots. Although it takes 3,000,000 for the energon achievement. Thanks for the post and i will add that to the guide.

It's not that there is more energon, it is that you need more. You will find yourself having to repeat missions to get the energon anyway.

Yeah I know, I got 2,000,000 energon in the Autobot campaign but I think it's pretty strange that you need to get 3,000,000 in the Dec and 2,000,000 in the Autobot campaign since all the other achievements in the two campaigns are almost identical.

You also need to kill 350 Autobots in Decepticon campaign, vs 250 Decepticons in Autobot campaign. They probably just expect you to play Autobot first and then Decepticon, although you can do it either way. Getting the extra 1,000,000 energon on Decepticon take only about another 20 minutes playing the final level over and over.

I am having trouble with Choose a Side! I tried to to it by myself and it didn't unlock. I have also tried it playing PLAYER MATCH and have won as both the decepticons and autobots. It hasn't unlocked for me yet. I know other people are having trouble with it as well. I will keep trying things and report back what actually worked.

I do not agree with your Road Map at all. The game requires 2 full playthroughs (1 for autobots and 1 for decepticons) plus additional mission replays. I also disagree with the 8-10 hours of playtime to get to 1000. It took me about that long to play just through the campaigns for both sides. Then add in the time to go back and pick up the rest of the challenges and you easily hit the 10 hour mark. After that you need to go back and hit platinum on all the levels you didn't get the first time through. I would call myself an average gamer and I only picked up a handful of platinums during each of my campaign run-throughs. Which gives my roughly 18 or so missions to redo on each side. That's almost another playthrough. Add in the failures for some of the harder missions and the online achievements and I am looking at 20+ hours for all the achievements.

People are starting to post about the Choose a Side, let us know what happens so I can update the guide.

A full playthrough is playing everything in the game, so 1 autobot and 1 decepticon is one playthrough. You do not play the exact same levels with the exact same objectives in each. The game is split in 2, but that is one playthrough. It says minimum number of playthroughs and as people can get platinums on their first try they will definately not be playing through the game more than once. You have to go replay missions, but not do another playthrough like in a game with difficulty settings. I will try and update to make that more clear.

I will update the time, it took me a little less than 9 hours total, so that is the time I had as no one else had posted anything. The online ones you can finish if boosting in about 30-40 minutes.

Thanks for the feedback, I will update it all.

06-29-2009, 06:04 PM
Understand your reasoning behind the 1 playthrough thing. Impressed you pulled off everything in 9 hours. You must have been rolling. Clearly I played the game too much instead of chasing those :uzi::uzi:medals. I would be interested in hearing other people's opinion on times.
Bottom line and goal of the achievement guides and road maps are to be as accurate as possible to help gamers get their 1000.

For Bad Boys 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg, I found the secondary objective of the third city level (where you have to blow up gas tankers everywhere) a good way to kill a ton of autobots. Pick Grindor and stay near the museum and lay waste with your gatling gun and turret. They continually respawn.

I finally got the Choose a Side achievement last night. I played and won a handful of PLAYER matches with both sides and hadn't received it. So I went and played a few RANKED matches. I had no luck picking up a W. I figured I'd give it a rest and just go run through the win with each transformer achievement instead. The second decepticon I won with the achievement unlocked.
