Welcome to Wipeout 3, the third game for Kinect based on the ABC television series. The game plays quite differently from the previous games, mostly in that it is an over the shoulder platformer instead of a side-scrolling platformer. You can also use just your arms or just your legs to control the game, as opposed to the previous whole body moves, which is a good rest for the knees and back. Fortunately, the game is much easier than the previous versions, so jump right in.

Step 1: Easy playthrough

Honestly, you could go right to Black and Blue, but there are a few reasons why you would want to start on easy. First, you will likely get better times, nabbing the majority of the Silver Ballsy awards for time without even noticing. The reason it is easier is because you will automatically skip to the next checkpoint if you fail three times. While doing this, make sure to grab as many rings as you can and try to get the Smallsy on each episode. You'll be able to see which rings you missed later, but not which smallsy, so make a note if you miss a Smallsy.

Step 2: Black and Blue playthrough

Each level has a Silver Ballsy award for just passing the level on Black and Blue difficulty, though you don't need to do particularly well, just get by. If you see any rigns that you have missed (or any Smallsies) try to get them here, but don't stress if you missed them. Just focus on getting through the levels and getting the awards and achievements for doing so. It would be wise to play the entire episode as opposed to selecting individual levels to make the grind easier at the end of the game.

Step 3: Golden Ballsy Awards

Now, you are going to want to go back and collect the final Silver Ballsy awards to get the Golden Ballsy awards for each episode. You can easily see what you are missing. If you are missing rings, play the level on Black and Blue mode since you will not automatically skip the section if you fail too often. If you are missing a time award, play on easy. Nothing is that hard, though it may take a few tries for the final few time challenges.

Step 4: Money grinding

There are a lot of things that you need to buy in the store for the final achievement, so you will need to spend at least a little time grinding for money. The best way to do this is to just keep replaying the Winter Sports episode (Episode 3) since it can be done very quickly. Do not select individual levels, since you will get a $50,000 bonus at the end of the full episode.


While there are a few things that get annoying in the game, particularly the grinding, nothing is all that hard. You will need some skill, but nothing is terribly difficult and if you are willing to put the time in, you will be able to add another completion to your tag.

There are 12 episodes in total, each with 4 levels. When you start, only 3 will be unlocked, but as you complete more, you will unlock more. A few of the episodes have achievements for completing them, but most do not. To get this achievement, you just need to pass each level of each episode. It can be in any order, on any difficulty and in any amount of time. All you need to do is pass each level.

Reached level MAX and became as skilled as the Black and Blue crew.

After every level you will gain XP and progress toward the next level. In order to reach level MAX, you must fill up the XP bar at level 15, meaning that there are only 16 levels. You might reach the level MAX while going for the remaining Silver Ballsy awards, but you might also need to grind out the final level. If that is required, simply keep replaying the full Winter Sports episode (Episode 3) and you should get there fairly quickly.

Bought everything in the shop. You now have the snappiest wardrobe in town!

To buy everything in the store, you must first unlock everything which will come naturally as you level up. You will then need to amass enough money to actually buy everything, which will take more time than hitting level MAX. You are best off buying things that will benefit you first, since some of the equipment will give you bonuses to certain stats, like strength or balance, allowing you to complete levels a little easier. Don't bother with equipment that helps your swimming, since that only decreases the penalty for failing by half a second. This will probably be the last achievement you get. The easiest way to grind is to play the Winter Sports episode (Episode 3) repeatedly, since it can be completed very quickly and you will be given a $50,000 bonus for completing the full episode, giving you $58,000 every 6 or 7 minutes.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2407/5-7w-5E=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/wipeout-3/achievement/69730-Touching-Smallsy.html)Touching Smallsy (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/wipeout-3/achievement/69730-Touching-Smallsy.html) 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Touched Smallsy once. We can tell you two are going to be friends.

See "Oh yeah!"

Touched Smallsy 3 times. The relationship is blooming!

See "Oh yeah!"

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2407/5-qy7Ps=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/wipeout-3/achievement/69732-Oh-yeah-.html)Oh yeah! (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/wipeout-3/achievement/69732-Oh-yeah-.html) 50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Touched Smallsy 12 times. Best friends forever!

On the first level of each episode is a small red ball with arms, legs and sunglasses. This is Smallsy, and to unlock this achievement you will need to find all of them. None of them are particularly well hidden, though a few are a little hard to get. It might take you a few runthroughs of each level to actually pick it up, particularly when Smallsy is on the big balls, but so long as you pick it up and finish the level, you will get credit for it.

Picking up the same Smallsy over and over again will not work. You will need to pick up every Smallsy in the game, and there is no way of telling which you have missed.

Finished one episode in "Black and Blue" mode.

See "That was easy."

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2407/5-lzHd0=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/wipeout-3/achievement/69734-That-was-easy.html)That was easy (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/wipeout-3/achievement/69734-That-was-easy.html) 40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Finished all episodes in "Black and Blue" mode. That was easy!

Black and Blue mode can be selected from the options menu. Unlike Easy you must pass every obstacle, since you will not automatically skip to the next checkpoint if you fail to reach it 3 times. You also get a harsher time penalty for failing, but since you only need to pass the level, that really does not matter. Just pass every level and you will unlock this. You can see what you have not yet done by checking to see if you have the Silver Ballsy award for passing the level on Black and Blue.

Got your daily reward once. Free stuff is always good stuff.

Honestly, no one seems certain as to how this unlocks. One day you will start up the game and receive this achievement as well as a gift of ballsy bucks and XP. Some people think that this will only unlock on a Wednesday, but there is no real way of knowing how it unlocks. Just load up the game each day (you don't even need to play a level) and this will unlock eventually.

Unlocked all hosts. The dynamic trio is on the loose!

You will unlock this after completing all episodes.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2407/5-iol-A=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/wipeout-3/achievement/69737-Ring-grabber.html)Ring grabber (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/wipeout-3/achievement/69737-Ring-grabber.html) 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Collected all the rings of one round.

See "All the rings in the world."

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2407/5-zqhJo=.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/wipeout-3/achievement/69738-All-the-rings-in-the-world.html)All the rings in the world (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/wipeout-3/achievement/69738-All-the-rings-in-the-world.html) 80 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Collected all the rings in all episodes. No rings can escape you!

This is not as daunting as you might think. You need to get every ring in the game (480 in total) but none of them are hidden, and you only need to collect each ring once. So, if you miss a ring on your first runthrough you can collect it in a seperate runthrough, and if you have already collected it you never need to collect it again. Even more helpful is that rings you have not yet collected will glow, while the rings you have already collected will not. If you are missing a ring and are not sure of where it is check for alternate paths. Some levels have a high road and a low road with a ring or two on each path. Most are easier to collect in Black and Blue since you will not automatically skip to the next check point if you fail, but some high roads are easier to reach on easy. If you have collected each ring on the level you will get the Silver Ballsy awarrd for doing so.

Got all Golden Ballsy trophies. You can’t get more golden than this!

To get a Golden Ballsy trophy you must collect all 12 Silver Ballsy awards on each episode. Each level has 3 awards.

First you will need to pass each level in a specific time. You can see the required time in the award description. Not many of them are hard, but a few of the later ones will take a touch of practice. Play on easy to reduce your stress as obstacles move slower and the time penalty for failure is much lower.

Next, you must collect every ring on the level. See "All the rings in the world" for more details.

Finally, you will need to pass the level on Black and Blue difficulty. See "That was easy" for more details.

You do not need to do all of these is a single runthrough, all you need to do is meet the requirements and finish the level to get credit for the individual Silver Ballsy.

You unlock contestants by levelling up. This will unlock at Level MAX.

Collected at least 200 rings. They’re so nice and shiny!

See "All the rings in the world."

You will probably unlock this naturally without needing to replay levels.
