Overview:
-Estimated achievement difficulty: Based on a scale of 1-10 (10 being hardest): 6/10
-Offline: 41 for 850:gsicon:
-Online: 9 for 150:gsicon:
-Approximate amount of time to 200/1000: 40 hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 5+ My Player Seasons, 10 Ranked Live Matches, 1-2 MLB Today games, 1 League game, as well as utilizing Franchise or Quick Play
-Number of missable achievements: 1 is very missable (see below), some My Player achievements are missable in theory, but you have 15 seasons to complete them. Most people only take 5-9
-Do cheat codes disable achievements?: N/A
-Does difficulty affect achievements?: Yes. Play on Pro difficulty for a majority of the achievements.
-Glitchy achievements: Many achievements are very touchy. Always have extra save files.
-Unobtainable achievements: Mid-Summer Classic only obtainable on the day of the actual All-Star Game
-Extra equipment needed?: No

You can do a lot of these achievements in League games, however unlike previous incarnations two controllers in Quick Play won't work.

Introduction:
MLB 2K10 provides a somewhat lengthy road to complete every achievement. My Player requires you to put in many hours and other tasks require some luck or situations that can't always be replicated. Boosting achievements in League games will help ease some of the pain, but the game can be bone realistically without one. The achievement guide explains in detail how to get the achievements, use this map as a guideline in what order to get them.

Step #1: Franchise
Franchise is a great place to start. In order to get the season oriented achievements, you are required to play 20 games. Make sure to win your first game. During the remaining 19 games, you should hammer out a lot of those situational achievements (Example: get a two-out RBI, get a leadoff home run). After 20 games, you can sim to the end of the season. Make an extra save file first, them sim to the playoffs. Hopefully you are in them. If not, reload your save, and repeat. Now sim to the end of the postseason, reloading your save if necessary. Once you have won the World Series you can move on. You will have other opportunities to gain the situational achievements (League Games, Step #4)

Step #2: My Player
My Player is the main attraction, however it doesn't give you much gamerscore for how long you will be playing it. Use the achievement guide to aid you in making it to the big leagues, raising your player rating, making the All-Star team, and eventually making it to the Hall of Fame. Unfortunately, all of the situational achievements are not obtainable in this mode. Only ones specifically for My Player can be achieved here. To reach the Hall of Fame, you will need to accomplish several HOF goals, and play at least 5 seasons. You can simulate games, but the game requires you to play key games.

Step #3: Ranked Matches
You will have to play as 10 different teams, so during these ten games win three times in a row, beat the Yankees, play as the Nationals once, a hopefully catch the viral achievement. If you are crafty and play during low traffic times, you could possibly boost ranked achievements. Something to help you in online matches, there is a slight lag when you hit swing and when you actually swing. This will some getting used to.

Step #4: Online League games (and whatever you missed in Step #1)
While the ability to get achievements with two controllers isn't possible in MLB 2K10, the way around it is getting them in a League game. As opposed to ranked matches, you can set up your own league and start times, and control who is in your league. A lot of user created leagues never kick off, so for this one it would best to form a league with friends or other x360a users. Use the Achievement Trading Thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=199016) in the MLB 2K10 sub-forum to find others. If you missed anything in Step #1, you can boost them or earn them in League games. Make sure you win once too!

Step #5: Exploring the remaining game modes
Earn gold in all the training drills, win the Best of the Best HR Derby challenge, and finally play a game of MLB Today. Kill two birds with one stone by making that game of MLB Today the All-Star game, which requires you to play the actual day of the All-Star game in real life.

Step #6: Player Cards and Milestones
You earn a players card by completing specific tasks with or against players. Look in your card collection to see how to unlock certain players. Playing on different teams help. Play Quick Games, Franchise, or League games to get your 200 strikeouts and 250 RBI.

Conclusion:
Three things make this game a relatively hard 1000:gsicon:: Ranked Matches, specifically winning three in a row, the High Crimes achievement, and the length of My Player mode. Get past those three things and you should be golden. As with a lot of games, boosting eases this difficulty.

Throughout Franchise, you will get dozens of these hits naturally. If you really need to try for it, work your count to two strikes and swing for contact.

Edit your player you want to commit the steal with max running stats. Now play against pitcher with an awkward slow delivery, and you can steal without a throw.

Double plays are another common occurrence in this game. The most traditional way is with a runner on first, and the batter bounces a grounder and you throw out the guy going to second and first. A strikeout/throwout counts, as well as flyout/throwout.

In the ninth inning of a game with two outs or less and in the lead, intentionally walk enough batters to get the tying run on first base. Have your closer warmed, and bring him in and win the game without allowing the game to be tied.

The tricky part is not getting a walk, or putting the ball in play on accident before you face 10 pitches. Work your count to two strikes, and use the defensive swing feature with a mediocre player. They will continually foul pitches off. Doing the math, you will have to foul off at least 5 pitches, depending on the count. Swing just a tad late to influence the ball foul.

Play as the NL or AL All Stars, or NL or AL Greats, against a poor team, like the Nationals. You can even edit the stats of all your players to max and all theirs to a minimum. Work the score to 0-4, then in the 7th inning, let loose. You can win in extra innings, so long as you win.

Edit your player to 7 feet tall, 300 pounds, and the catcher on the opposing team to 5 feet, 130 pounds. Work your player around the bases and send him home on a play where he would normally be out easily. The catcher will wait for you, and you will subsequently plow him over. DO NOT slide. If you try to slide anytime during the play your player will slide instead of trcuking the catcher.

In My Player Mode, you will be presented with many clutch moments. usually it is getting a base hit in a tie game, but sometimes it involves stealing a base, doing a squeeze bunt play, etc. Your very first appearance in My Player is a clutch moment, but won't work for the achievement since it is in the minor leagues. You can simulate games in My Player, but the game will make you play clutch moments so make the best of them. Reload your save if you fail, which means you should save often.

Edit all batters of the opposing team to have the lowest speed and acceleration, but with max aggressiveness. Now, intentionally walk batters and pick them off for all 27 outs. Picking batters off from second base seems easier, so you may have to walk two batters on base.

Put your best home run threat as the first batter. The All Star Teams are loaded with them so take your pick out of them. You could always edit the opposing pitchers to have bad or easy pitches, but despite not being mentioned in the achievement description, this needs to be done on Pro difficulty. Let the game go extra innings if you have a guy with 2 home runs and you need just one more.

This can be done in a 3 inning game, or in extra innings of a 3 inning game. Use a power swing and swing for the fences to end the game. Walk-offs can only be done in home games, because in away games, the other team gets to bat last.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1311/-BZ+rQ==.jpg20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg High Crimes - Rob a Home Run on Pro or higher

One of the most difficult achievements in the game, as the oppurtunity to rob a home run is rare, and often when you rob one, the achievement doesn't pop. Here is a short guide to increase your odds of seeing a home run in which you can rob:

Mode: Quick Game
Home Team: AL All-Stars, User controlled
Away Team: NL All-Stars, CPU controlled
Ballpark: AAA East
Difficulty: Legend

You will want to edit three outfielders on your team. Ichiro (Seattle Mariners), Curtis Granderson (NY Yankees), and Torii Hunter (LA Angels). Max out there speed and fielding abilities. Now when you start your game, hit :Start: during the loading screen to edit your lineup. You will have to add Granderson into left field, and Hunter in Center. Ichiro will already be starting in right field. Replace the starting pitcher with Mark Buerhle.

Every at bat, you will need to check/adjust your outfield depth. Hit :dup: to check your depth and cycle through them until they are playing deep. You will need to serve up pitches for the NL All-Stars to blast. Using classic pitching, tap :rbbut: to throw a weak changeup. A lot of the times, they will blast it with no chance of robbing the home run. Should it be close though, a prompt will be by your player that says "Wall Climb." Hold :xbut: to perform a wall climb. A meter will show up, similar to throwing to a base. Land the marker in the green area to optimize you climb. Getting a "running start" to the wall seems to get the right animation, as compared to standing underneath the wall. Often times you will rob the home run but not get the achievement, as the game is likely rewarded it for only a certain home run robbing animation.

If you get three batters out, simply start a rematch from the pause menu. Thanks to anthonyd46 and niznj33 for tips on creating "High Crimes" scenarios, and special thanks to Neon Tiger, OneWolverine1, SilverSluggerMZ, DarkManX, and MADasaHatter on this very challenging achievement.

If you have an opposing baserunner edited for max aggressiveness but minimal speed and acceleration, you should be able to throw him out easily with any catcher.

Intentionally walk three batters with Tim Lincecum of the Giants. Tim works great because the three walks will put his composure down to Tense but he is a great pitcher so you will likely strike out the next batter (some pitchers still are not Tense after three walks). Now go for the strikeout.

There are several goals you need to meet while in the Minor Leagues to increase your chances of getting to the Majors, like playing 15 games, improving your stats by obtaining skill points, achieving certain statistical accolades, etc. Meet most or all of these goals, and you will get called to the Majors.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1311/-BRrZg==.jpg 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg The Goal - Accomplish a Team Season Goal in My Player Mode.

As you progress your player and get better, subsequently, your team will likely get better, and able to accomplish Team Season Goals. To get "The Hall" achievement you need to play 5-10 seasons, so most likely your team will come through with a goal at least once.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1311/-fST9Q==.jpg 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg The Top - Become the #1 ranked player in your My Player organization.

Here is where picking a good team could hurt you, because they likely have good players. As you progress you earn skill points to improve your Overall Rating. Have the highest on your team for this achievement. Teammates can actually get better or worse over the years, effecting your rank. If you are very high and still not #1, you could request a trade to a team without superstars. After you have reached the top of your team, you will need to simulate or play a single game afterwards for the achievement to unlock.

Your rating goes up as you progress through My Player by completing tasks such as hits, walks, putouts, etc. Make sure to complete drills for a big boost in skill points. Even if you are strictly simming your games, you will be forced to play Key Games, where you can earn a fair amount of skill points.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1311/+ndxuQ==.jpg 80 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpg The Hall - Make the Hall of Fame in My Player Mode.

You must play at least 5 seasons in the Majors before you can retire and go to the Hall of Fame. While you are working your rating up, you must accomplish 12 goals in 3 different categories. Two Team Goals, Five Career Milestones, and Five Season Goals. Here are the goals for position players:

There is a way around playing 20 games. You can start the game normally, then from the pause select Super-Sim, and you can sim to the end of the game, and it will count as a game played. After you have played 20 games, you can choose to simulate to the end of the season. You would be doing yourself a favor by picking a good team, otherwise you may actually have to play the games to influence the result. Make multiple saves if you do not win the World Series so you can reload your save and sim again. Otherwise, play the World Series games yourself to ensure the win. As long as your playing on Pro, feel free to play 3 inning games and have all playoff series games set to 1. You can also force trades to make your team better. Must be on Pro Difficulty.

There are 20 batters that you must beat to reach the top. The first 10-15, should be pretty easy to beat. Make sure you edit your hitter with max hitting and power. When you get stuck, you can edit your opposing player with minimum batting skills. What also helps, is to edit their height to a minimum, weight to a maximum, and their date of birth to their oldest. So basically an old, short, fat guy who can't hit. Still though, the CPU will be hard to beat in the last few rounds despite editing. If you lose, you can choose to rematch or quit. Sometimes when you quit to the Main Menu, then go back into the HR Derby (you start where you left off), the other batter is easier to beat, so try this as well when hitting a roadblock.

This could potentially be problematic, as people power off and quit.

Use Joe Mauer of the Twins, as he has great Contact numbers.

Plate Battle-
Use Mauer again. Every pitch, use a defensive swing, unless you are sure it will be a ball. Points are awarded for hits, fouls, or pitches taken out of the Strike Zone

Infield-
Use Evan Longoria of the Rays. Very easy.

Catcher-
Use Mauer Again. Also easy

Outfield-
Edit any player to max fielding stats. You need to set your throw before you actually catch or get the ball to get the best and fastest throw.

Control and Velocity-
Use an edited Pat Neshek of the Twins. Why Neshek? His target area is twice the size, having two yellow squares to throw to. Edit his pitches to Fastball and Changeup only, and reduce movement and increase control. Set his third pitch to None. I felt that pitches that were not maxed out, but rather 3/4 or maybe 5/6 being more accurate. Hit your six targets for gold.

Composure and Stamina-
Any good pitcher will do. For this drill, it is pitch location and selection that is key. Don't give the hitter anything good to hit, but don't walk them either.

Thank you for the early support.

Will definitely ask for help when needed, and also credit when it is due.

My laptop is dying, going to go play the game for more achievement tips.

Edit: any tips for Control+Velocity? Are there any pitchers with two pitches?

BrotherBadger
03-22-2010, 05:22 AM
As for the outfield, i went with a fast outfielder with a good arm(i used either Braun or Gomez on the Brewers).
As far as throwing with him, start charging the throw(by holding down the "base" button you will throw it to) before you catch it, so it releases the ball with max effort immediately upon catching it. It's pretty easy when you are charging a grounder, as you can see the meter, but catching a flyball it's harder to see, and more of just guessing the timing.

I found the throw home on a fly ball the hardest, but by intentionally going over the cutoff man and throwing straight home with max effort, i usually got the runner by a second or two.


As far as Control, i edited Billy Wagner just to have a Fastball and a straight change up, so there is really no movement on the pitches. That made it pretty easy.

As far as Velocity, just pick the best pitcher you can on a team with no real superstar hitter(the game will use the best hitter for your team in that drill). So probably Kansas City with Greinke would be the easiest(sorry royals fans).

litepink
03-22-2010, 05:29 AM
Ok, I got Control and Velocity.

I edited Pat Neshek to only have two pitches, but oddly, with him, I had two yellow squares in which I could throw to, as opposed to one with most other people I tried.

Brotherbadger, thank you for the tips. Control and Velocity is actually a single drill, I think your idea with Grienke was for Compusre and Stamina. I will incorporate your other tips, thanks.

03-22-2010, 02:57 PM
Nope, I only had the one target and that was it. But I agree with SilverSluggerMZ, have a pitcher with only 2 or 3 pitches and it's a cinch (and to me it was totally easier doing it in classic pitching mode).

I had two. One flashed at beggining and then faded, the other was constant. I believe I had Mariano, but I'm not sure.

The thing was, only one of the boxees actually counted. I failed the drill twice because of this. It was strange but I recall it now that pink brought it up.

Pitchers like Wagner, Riviera, Neshek have 3 pitches, and you can edit them down to two I discovered. Will have to look into classic pitching.

I had two and they both 'glowed' equally. I would aim in the middle of the two and pitch away. I wonder if it is a Pat Neshek thing or something else I did.

Clear all the records at the beginning of the season. You can do so by going to the Records screen and hitting :ybut:. At the end of the season all the new records will be yours. You must play 20 games however.

^Straight from this very thread.

Still having troubles? Pick a bad and/or newer team, like the Rays. Make sure you have "force trade" on. Trade for some good players. CC Sabathia, Joe Mauer, Albert Pujouls, Nick Punto (ha). Now for your 20 games, start the game, but after the game starts, hit pause then go to Super-Sim to simulate that game. do this 20 times, than simulate the rest of the season without entering the game. CC will likely break the innings, strikeouts, and shutout records depending on how many innings your playing.

The only achievements that unlock in "My Player" mode are the achievements that actually say "My Player" in their description. Everything else must be done in other game modes.


I'm not entirely sure what the reasoning is...because for some of the achievements, the actual mechanic of what you do is the same either way (2-strike hit, stealing when losing in the last 3 innings, etc. etc.) however...

I remember when the Madden game modes came out, I would unlock achievements for things my defense did in super sim while I played a quarterback...so maybe this is related...

Agreed. Although High Crimes would happen all the time playing as an outfielder, the frequency of two-out RBI's aren't that much greater in MyPlayer.

To me, the ratio of play time vs. achievements in My Player is incorrectly weighted.

No, you got screwed. Yes, you get the Win, but it won't count towards the "Team to Beat" or even 3 game winning streak. I had to win 5 games in a row before I got it.

For king of the hill. I was able to pull the ball to my side of the field and get a few extra home runs in the later rounds (#5 - #1). This meaning point the left stick left for left handed hitters and left stick right for right handed hitters. You can also set up ballparks that favor your side of the plate and edit the opposing hitter to hinder them. I will note one or two homeruns ended up in foul territory because of the timing and direction I hit in.

Drills are located under Game modes. Here is a quick guide the nine drills

Lead Off and Jump-
Use Brett Gardner of the Yankees. Mariano Rivera will pitch, and he is easy to steal off.

Advancing and Sliding-
Use Gardner again. Always get a head start by stealing first (except for the Sacrifice Fly portion of the drill)

Contact and Power-
Use Joe Mauer of the Twins, as he has great Contact numbers.

Plate Battle-
Use Mauer again. Every pitch, use a defensive swing, unless you are sure it will be a ball. Points are awarded for hits, fouls, or pitches taken out of the Strike Zone

Infield-
Use Evan Longoria of the Rays. Very easy.

Catcher-
Use Mauer Again. Also easy

Outfield-
Edit any player to max fielding stats. You need to set your throw before you actually catch or get the ball to get the best and fastest throw.

Control and Velocity-
Use an edited Pat Neshek of the Twins. Why Neshek? His target area is twice the size, having two yellow squares to throw to. Edit his pitches to Fastball and Changeup only, and reduce movement and increase control. Set his third pitch to None. I felt that pitches that were not maxed out, but rather 3/4 or maybe 5/6 being more accurate. Hit your six targets for gold.

Composure and Stamina-
Any good pitcher will do. For this drill, it is pitch location and selection that is key. Don't give the hitter anything good to hit, but don't walk them either.

As if further confirmation is needed, I'll 100% confirms this works. I tried editing Billy Wagner and Jon Broxton with nothing to show for it. First time using Neshek (he's on MIN's AAA team, btw; just call him up to MLB) nabbed me gold and the achievement. First pitch Fastball (94 MPH, 99 control, 25 movement), second pitch Cut Fastball (88 MPH, 99 control, 25 movement).

Worked like a charm. No clue why he was the only person to register for me. Sabathia, Wagner, and Broxton COMBINED netted me 2 (TWO!) registered pitches.

Just throwing my two cents into the fold. Great guide, Lite!

hmmmm, Neshek was on the Pro team when I did it, but glad it worked none-the-less. (living rosters I presume)

did those other pitchers have two yellow zones to throw it to, or just Neshek?

glad it worked, glad you like the guide too :)

Seems like the round and round we go achievement is broken as well, had 11 batters come up in the same inning and it didn't activate. =(

I have a question for anyone who did their My Player as a closer. Do u start off as a set up man and work your way up or do they throw u in the closers role in the minors and work your way to the Majors?

my starting pitcher was selected for the all star game but i didnt get to play in it and i got no achievement, he should have been the starter for it, 17-0, 0.42 ERA and 162Ks. ridiculous.

One question in regards to the spice of life achievement:"Must the ten complete online games be the first ten completed online games? I've completed 30+ games and i switched for around 10 games in a row yet no achievement. What am I doing wrong? I have all the other tough achievements but this one might cost a possible completion. Do online leader boards get reset if you don't play for an entire month?

how do you select to actually play the all star game in my player? i was selected for the game, but when i try to play it my next apperance is the only option for me and when i select that it skips the all star game. does the achievement pop if i skip the all star game at the end of the season that i was selected to the game?

Domination and production achievements

an easy way to get this achievement is to play a 2 player mlb today game. have your team strike out 26 players(8 2/3s innings) and get a bunch of runs(easiest way is to hit 3 batters then bunt for a homerun.) once you are at 8 2/3s inning, save and quit your game. everytime you go back into the game you will earn all 27 ks and whatever rbis you earned. Repeat that last out and save, and just keep playing until you have the amount of outs you need. Chances are you wont need much if you were working on it, but check in VIP before hand.

you have to go to vip and see howmany were recorded for you... then play a 2 player game and get all the strikeouts and homeruns when you get to the last out, save your game, and then go back into it and get the last out... when you get the amount you need play a single player game and you will get it.

Great guide! It was pretty helpful and saved me a lot of time on some of those achievements.

I answered my own question I posted earlier, but for those others who were also initially confused:

Q: How do you send invites to your league?
A: Go to MY LEAGUES (after you've made one) ---> A button ---> Y button ---> Then just follow the on screen questions about who you want to invite.

Just a quick tip to make "My Player" mode a lil bit eaiser. Go into the options (while in my player mode) then select My Player Setup, you can change the difficulty to Rookie from there with out affecting achievements. As long as you don't go into the Difficulty settings, you won't get the pop up about it turning off achievements.

I have a question about this, While playing with all the differents catorgories in my player I went into the difficulty options which was set @ rookie. As soon as I showed me it was rookie, it said all unchievements and trading cards have been disabled since i wasnt playing on pro. I switched it back to pro, but it already saved. Does this screw me out of the hall of fame achievement???

I didnt play any games or anything like that.
