This is not going to be 100% complete yet as the game is not out and not all the songs are tested out, but there are some achievements which can easily be described in advance in order to help out.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/+Mm0KA==.jpgEnlightened Guitarist 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Gold Star 20 songs on Expert

Essentially, get 100% notes hit on 20 songs on Expert difficulty. You should get this by replaying over and over and just generally practicing a lot.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/+SlMuw==.jpgHendrix Reborn 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete Career Left and Righty

Simply complete a full career with Lefty flip on, and complete a full career while playing normally. Play on Easy with Lefty flip if you are challenged by it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/-Wtf0Q==.jpgWho Needs the Power 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
200k on Cult of Personality without Star Power

You must get a score of 200k or more without using Star Power at all in the song. Most likely possible by playing on a raised difficulty, such as Hard or Expert. Be sure to keep good combos going.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/-IunQg==.jpgWhammy Mania 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Use the Whammy Bar on every held note on Number of the Beast

On every single long note (has a line dragging it out), shake/push the Whammy Bar while holding them. It does not say difficulty, so this may be possible on Easy for the easiest way!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/-qqu9w==.jpgStar Mania 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Activate Star Power 3 times on Through the Fire and Flames on Expert

Unless you are a Guitar Hero god, you will most likely use up Star Power a lot during TTFAF, so this should be somewhat easy. The main challenge will be to actually get the Star Power by hitting the notes, along with lasting long enough to make use of the SP. Be sure to just keep practicing more and more, just like you will need to to actually beat the song. (***Tips will be provided later.)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/-G1Cag==.jpgLife of the Party 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Host Ranked Online matches and win 15 consecutive songs

Host a Ranked Online match. Once you host it, you must win 15 songs in a row against your opponent.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/-Y26+Q==.jpgSearch and Destroy 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Join Ranked Online matches and win 15 consecutive songs

This is like above, you must win 15 songs in a row against your opponent. The only difference here is that you must not host the match, you must join someone else's.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/-jNXOA==.jpgToo Many to Count 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Hit 250,000 notes in Career

This should be really simple. It is not said how notes count, such as if they count in replaying songs, but you should get this eventually if you play enough of the Career and pass songs.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/-BJejQ==.jpgNever Gonna Spend It All 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn $350,000 in career lifetime earnings

This is like Too Many to Count. As long as you play the career enough and do well on songs, you should get enough money to meet the requirement. Remember, getting 5-stars on songs give you the most money.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/-fKmHg==.jpgThat's What Friends Are For 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete Co-Op Career

Just complete the whole Co-Op Career with someone. It does not matter whether you are lead or back-up.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/+FBN5w==.jpgBack Up Hero 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete all songs as the back-up guitar player

Simply complete all songs in Co-Op as the back-up guitarist.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/+bC1dA==.jpgGuitar Wizard 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete all Co-Op as the lead guitarist

Simply complete all songs in Co-Op as the lead guitarist.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/+5G8wQ==.jpg100 Million!?! Gulp!?! 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn 100,000,000 points total in Career

You must play a LOT of the career and score high on many of the songs. Most likely this will require playing through all the difficulties or close to it.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPgauaI=.jpgStreaker 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 150 note streak in a Ranked Online Battle mode match

While playing in Battle mode against an opponent on Xbox Live, simply get a 150 note streak. This may be hard depending on the opponent, as they can trip you up with the Battle mode "attacks", so just keep trying with every battle.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPn6QTE=.jpgTone Deaf 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Beat any song on Expert difficulty with the games sound options turned down to zero

Go into the Sound Options menu and turn the volume to 0. Then, go and complete any song on Expert. You must do this solely based on sightreading the notes.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPo7sBc=.jpgEasy Rider 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete a Career on the Easy difficulty

Quite simply complete the Career mode on Easy. Should not be too hard to do.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP+ZW+4=.jpgMedium Rare 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete Career Mode on the Medium difficulty

Just a step up from Easy. Should also not pose a big challenge.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP55o30=.jpgAlways Hard 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete Career on the Hard difficulty

This is probably where the game will get a bit trickier. Make sure to just keep replaying those songs and make good use of Practice mode in order to pass songs.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP24Uls=.jpgSolo Career 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete all Career difficulties

You must complete Career mode once for each of the difficulties: Easy, Medium, Hard, and Expert.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP9-vsY=.jpgButton Masher 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win 15 consecutive Ranked songs online using a standard controller

You must win 15 songs in a row online in Ranked matches, but you must use the standard Xbox 360 controller and not the guitar controller.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPzBUwc=.jpgBuy a Guitar Already 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Play through a career on the Hard or Expert difficulty using a standard controller

You must complete Career mode on either Hard or Expert, but you can only use the standard Xbox 360 controller for all the songs and not the guitar controller.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP7gWrI=.jpgBig 'Ol Pile of Wins 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win 500 Online Ranked matches

This may take quite a while. You must play Ranked matches online against other players, and you must win 500 of them. Just keep practicing to get better than others, and obviously you will have to play A LOT online.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP8AoiE=.jpgThe Long Road Ahead 100 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete all difficulties in Career, buy everything from the shop and complete 100 online matches

This is a mighty big achievement. First, you must beat Career mode on all four difficulties: Easy, Medium, Hard, and Expert. You must also accumulate enough money to buy EVERYTHING from the game shop, including guitars, songs, characters, and anything else possibly left in the shop. And the last requirement is that you "complete" 100 online matches. This is quite vague, as it does not say they have to be Ranked nor does it say you must win. (***This will be edited later upon finding the information.)

10-14-2007, 03:36 AM
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPvbSIQ=.jpgMeet Your Maker 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Beat one of the creators of Guitar Hero 3 at their own game

This is not quite clear. (***Will be edited later.)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPxYqsg=.jpgRight Hand of God 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete Career Mode on Expert difficulty

The hardest difficulty in the game will cause some problems. Going from Hard to Expert is not as big a jump as going from Medium to Hard. Going from Medium to Hard will introduce the Orange button, while Hard to Expert you will already be somewhat adjusted to the Orange button. Just do what was said before, play the songs over and over until you get them and use Practice mode when needed. It will help you greatly in figuring out how to tackle tough parts in songs.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPvocZg=.jpgBronze Streaker 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 100 note streak in Career or Quick Play

Basically, just hit 100 notes without missing anything. Once you hit 100 in a row, this should pop up. Take note it only says Career or Quick Play.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP6mefw=.jpgSilver Streaker 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 250 note streak in Career or Quick Play

Like above, just hit 250 notes in a row without missing one. Once again, Career or Quick Play.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPxrk9Q=.jpgGold Streaker 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 500 note streak in Career or Quick Play

Once again, you must hit 500 notes this time without missing any. Just keep it cool and you should be able to do it. Career or Quick Play, remember!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPsEkgU=.jpgStreak Master 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 1000 note streak in Career or Quick Play

This is yet another "hit x without missing", except it is 1000 which is quite big. Assuming it has enough notes in it though, you could probably play Through the Fire and Flames on Medium and get this without going too crazy. (***Will be updated when game comes out)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPhcmuw=.jpgFirst Big Score 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Score 250,000 on a song

As it says, get a high score of 250,000 for one song. It shouldn't be too crazy really. (***Will update with good songs later.)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPyNdvw=.jpgHalf a Mill' 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Score 500,000 on a song

Now this is a bit pushing it here, as it was pretty rough in GH2 to get 500k. Most likely you will be playing a long song on a higher difficulty (The Devil Went Down to Georgia on Hard/Expert, anyone?) and just trying to do your best. (***Will update with good songs later.)

!??? PICTURE UNKNOWN ???! Now That's Impressive 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Score 750,000 on a song

This will most definitely test your skills here. Like above, you will probably be playing the longest song in the game on the hardest difficulty. More info will be here when the game comes out, as hopefully it will not require playing Through the Fire and Flames on Expert. (***Will update with good songs later.)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPljuP4=.jpgAxe Grinder 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn 5 stars on all songs on the Easy difficulty

Should not pose too much of a challenge really. Just get a high enough score on all the main career songs on Easy for 5 stars.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP1niNo=.jpgRock Guru 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn 5 stars on all songs on the Medium difficulty

This shouldn't be too much more trouble than the above achievement. Just practice some and get those high 5 starring scores!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP9GgW8=.jpgShredder 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn 5 stars on all songs on the Hard difficulty

This might be a bit harder than the other two, obviously, but it is just best to do what has been stated many times: replay, replay, replay, and use Practice mode! It will help you a lot in getting those movements down for songs.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP5KmmE=.jpgGuitar Hero 75 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn 5 stars on all songs on the Expert difficulty

Just like above: try and try and try and try and use Practice mode over and over and over. It's the best advice I can give, because if you can do the movements when they're slower, you'll be able to gradually do them at their normal pace. Practice makes perfect!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPtxiFc=.jpgPerfectionist 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
100% a song

This really isn't all that hard. It doesn't state difficulty so you could do it on Easy for all you care. Just complete a whole song without missing a single note.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPyHcEk=.jpgReady to Rock 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete the tutorial

This should be self-explanatory and damned simple. Just finish the tutorial.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPtCsUs=.jpgAxe Collector 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Buy all the guitars from the shop

You must accumulate enough money from your Career by doing well on songs. Once you have the funds, just buy out guitars from the shop. It is unknown if this includes special guitars (such as ones unlocked for beating a difficulty), but that was not the case in GH2 so it's not expected.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPjFYyM=.jpgTrack Master 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Buy all songs from the shop

Like the guitars, just do well enough in your Career and pick up some money. Spend it all on the bonus songs until you have them all.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP+qYvI=.jpgGot 'em All 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Buy all characters from the shop

The last buying achievement, where you need enough money to get all the secret characters. The characters usually cost the most, which will end up making you work hard for that money if you spend it all on the other things in the shop before.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPp9k1k=.jpgA Couple of Streakers 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 200 note streak in a Co-Op match

See Streak Masters.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPoCj74=.jpgTwo Timer10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 500 note streak in a Co-Op match.

See Streak Masters.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPnJeC0=.jpgDynamic Duo 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg

See Streak Masters.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPrkapY=.jpgStreak Masters 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Earn a 2000 note streak in a Co-Op match

While playing on song in Co-Op mode, you must hit the amount of notes said in a row without missing any. This is trickier on Co-Op though, as both of you must not miss any. Both of your share the same combo/note streak meter, and ever note you both hit will add up with each other to make your overall streak. Just keep trying as you please, and hopefully your partner is good enough to hold the streak with you. (***Will be updated for good songs later.)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP7TY64=.jpgHigher Than Most 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Score 700,000 on any song in a Co-Op match

See Millionaire Club.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPlQgeI=.jpgMillionaire Club 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Score 1,000,000 on any song in a Co-Op match

If you are able to get the 750k achievement by yourself in the game, then you should be able to get the 1mil achievement in Co-Op, as long as your partner is at least around your level. Mostly just play a long song on a hard difficulty and do your best not to miss. (***Will be updated for good songs later.)

Earn 5 stars on all Co-Op songs for the Easy difficulty

See Living Legends.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPiweXE=.jpgMedium Duo 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg

See Living Legends.

Earn 5 stars on all Co-Op songs on the Hard difficulty

See Living Legends.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP0Skog=.jpgLiving Legends 75 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
5 star all Co-Op songs on Expert

This will probably be a challenge, as you and your partner must be really good. It is unknown whether this means all the main Co-Op career songs or ALL the songs playable in Co-Op. (***Will be updated later with more information.)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPzyahs=.jpgLeaders of the Pack 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
100% a song in a Co-Op match

When you play a song together with someone in Co-Op mode, you both must hit all the notes and miss none. This can be easily done on the Easy difficulty, obviously.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPklm7A=.jpgTwo by Four 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Get an 8X multiplier in a Co-Op game

Just hit enough notes in a row with the other player to get an 8X multiplier.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UPyNdvw=.jpgHalf Mill' Club 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Score 500,000 on any song in a Co-Op match

See above at Millionaire Club.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/-0pWZA==.jpgBurnin' a Hole in Your Pocket 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Buy everything from the store

You must accumulate pretty much all of the money that you can, then just buy everything available inside of the shop.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/393/UP6fRlU=.jpgThe Inhuman Achievement 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete Through the Fire and Flames on Expert

This will be one hell of a battle. Just go over and OVER and over and OVER until you can get pieces down. Make great use of Practice mode by switching the speed so much so you can figure out patterns. Use all of the Star Power that you can in order to prolong the song. Observe videos where people do good and figure out how to keep up with them. And yet again, just keep trying over and over and over.

Looks good! Most of the Achievements were pretty self-explanatory, but you still gave some good tips to obtain them. :)

Thanks man.

And I know quite a bit of them say they'll be updated, but of course that's true.


If we don't have our hands on the game and know how some things work, I can't finish!

Good job Fire Mage, but I think you have a little too much time on your hands. The game isn't out for two weeks.

Edit: On the achievement for using star power three times on TTFAF's, the hard part is probably getting star power not just having time to use it. The video of the guy beating it on the Wii version is pretty insane.

Edit Again: I just noticed this, sorry, on the get get $350,000 lifetime earnings, you may mention that you get more for starting harder difficulties first. It was that way in GH2. But the money system may be completely rearranged.

Man, I am pumped for this game, i'll contribute towards this guide all I can.

I'm also pretty sure you can play co-op online, so that way the co-ops will be pretty easy, even for the begginer players, just hit up some of the best players and ask them to help.

Great pre-guide. And yes it will obviously be modified a lot once the game is released, but still good for a pre-released game guide.

Haha yes I did have too much time. I started making it the other night when I had nothing at all to do. And yeah, I suppose that is the problem because I don't know how some of the things will work this time.

But at least I have the main setup finished and I can edit everything later.


Also, if anyone sees any sketchy tips (xJoex?) right now and have a way to fix them up a bit, please let me know.

A good song to get the 1000 note streak is to play Through The Fire and Flames on Easy. I got it the second time I tried, and I'm not that great either :)

Anyways, since Maka has his up already. Any info you have here that Maka doesn't, just post it up there and let Maka put it in.
